WORDS OF WISDOM!
4/21 Mon
When the world experiences the return of Christ in glory, they will react in terror. They have gathered their armies together at Jerusalem to fight what is known as the battle of Armageddon. It is at this battle that the blood will run "to the horses bridles"! However, the armies of the Antichrist and of all the other armies of the world will be destroyed with the Word of the Lord Jesus! These people had refused to bow before Him under grace, and they refused to bow under judgment. Now it is too late for them to bow. The time has come for them to reap what they have sowed. They will be judged and they will be destroyed with the word of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Antichrist and the False Prophet will be cast alive in the Lake of Fire and all their followers will be obliterated in an instant of time! Jesus will return, not as a meek Lamb, but as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah! For more information on today’s lesson, read “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share today’s lesson with those you love! God Bless You! Vic.

FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH, Mon, 4/21/2014
A Biblical View Of The End Times
Matthew 24:1-31
THE TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE, Lesson 52i

V. 30-31 HOW TRIBULATION CONCLUDES

These truths will be covered in far more detail in later messages, but for now, I will just say a word about each of these three things.

V. 30a The Triumphant Savior's Appearing - Verse 30 tells us that Jesus will return in great power and glory at the end of the Tribulation Period. When He returns, He will destroy the Antichrist and all his followers in one moment of time. Jesus will pass judgment on the world in an instant! These things will be covered in more detail in just a few weeks, but for now, you can read about them in (Rev. 19:11-14).

V. 30b The Terrified Sinner's Agonizing - When the world experiences the return of Christ in glory, they will react in terror. They have gathered their armies together at Jerusalem to fight what is known as the battle of Armageddon. It is at this battle that the blood will run "to the horses bridles", (Rev. 14:20)! However, the armies of the Antichrist and of all the other armies of the world will be destroyed with the Word of the Lord Jesus! These people had refused to bow before Him under grace, and they refused to bow under judgment. Now it is too late for them to bow. The time has come for them to reap what they have sowed. They will be judged and they will be destroyed with the word of the Lord Jesus Christ, (Rev. 19:15-21). The Antichrist and the False Prophet will be cast alive in the Lake of Fire and all their followers will be obliterated in an instant of time! Jesus will return, not as a meek Lamb, but as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah!

V. 31 The Tribulation Saints Assembling - When Jesus returns and defeats the armies of His enemies, He will gather together those people who believed the preaching of the 2 witnesses and the 144,000 Christian preachers. They will be gathered together and they will enter alive into the Promise of God for all true believers.

Conc: My friends, we have just touched the surface of the events of that terrible seven year period that is to come upon the earth. It will be a time more terrible than men can imagine. I just praise the Lord that the people of God do not have to fear these things. Now, the question that must be answered: Are you ready for the return of the Lord Jesus? Are you saved and sure that you will not be here for these terrible days? If not, you can be, all you need to do is to come to Jesus by faith and He will save you. If you are saved, praise the Lord! Now, go out and share Him with a world that needs to hear about Him and what He can do for their souls!


TODAY’S HYMN!
“Praise The Lord” By: J. Kempthorne (1796)

1 Praise the Lord! ye heav'ns, adore Him;
Praise Him, angels, in the height.
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him;
Praise Him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord! for He hath spoken;
Worlds His mighty voice obeyed.
Law which never shall be broken
For their guidance hath He made.
Refrain:
Hallelujah Amen! Hallelujah Amen!
AMEN!

2 Praise the Lord for He is glorious;
Never shall His promise fail.
God hath made His saints victorious;
Sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation!
Hosts on high, His power proclaim,
Heav'n and earth and all creation
Laud and magnify His name.
Refrain:

3 Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Lord, we offer unto Thee.
Young and old, Thy praise expressing,
In glad homage bend the knee.
All the saints in heav'n adore Thee;
We would bow before Thy throne.
As Thine angels serve before Thee,
So on earth Thy will be done.
Refrain:


TODAY’S PRAYER!
Most Holy Father, Living and Glorious God!
Take control of our hearts, our minds and our souls. Teach us to tame the tongue with praises to You and for the marvelous works You have done. Guide us in Your way and help us to turn everything over to You. Replace our fears with faith so we can breathe in the overwhelming joy that only You can provide. Redeem us fully by the blood of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Redeem our minds in the last stronghold of our rebellion. Redeem our soul into Your radiant Presence so Your light may permeate our thinking, our saying and our doing to Your glory, praise and honor. Enable Your Spirit to control our minds, filling us with Your love and peace. Thank You for the hope we have now in our Risen Savior. It is in His glorious name that we pray, ask and gratefully thank You. Amen!

WORDS OF WISDOM!




4/20 Sun




I remember that as a child I would hear adults speak of these things. I remember being terrified by them. I remember seeing that big, red, harvest moon as it hung on top of the hills. I remember thinking that the end had arrived. I knew that I was lost, but I never tried to do anything about it. Then, when I got saved, I learned the truth. Now when I see that red moon, I rejoice! It just reminds me that Jesus is coming soon! For more information on today’s lesson, read “FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH”, and share today’s lesson with those you love! God Bless You! Vic.




HAVE A BLESSED EASTER!

FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH, Sun, 4/20/2014
A Biblical View Of The End Times -
Matthew 24:1-31
THE TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE, Lesson 52h

The Vial Judgments

The First Vial – (Rev. 16:2) - Some kind of vile cancerous sore is poured out on mankind.
The Second Vial – (Rev. 16:3) - The waters of the sea are turned to blood and every creature in the sea dies.
The Third Vial – (Rev. 16:4-7) - The fresh waters of the earth are turned to blood.
The Fourth Vial – (Rev. 16:8-9) - The sun's heat is intensified and men's bodies are burned by the heat of the sun. Yet, with all these torments, they do not repent!
The Fifth Vial – (Rev. 16:10) - This plague brings darkness and intense pain to the inhabitant of the earth. Again so intense that they gnaw their tongues in their pain, yet they still refuse to repent.
The Sixth Vial – (Rev. 16:12-14) - The Euphrates River is dried up preparing a pathway for the nations of the earth to descend upon Israel for the final conflict.
The Seventh Vial – (Rev. 16:17-21) - This vial brings with it a terrible cataclysm in the earth. There is an earthquake of such magnitude that the islands of the sea sink and all the mountains of the earth fall down flat. On top of this, all the major cities of the earth will be destroyed! Then, hailstones fall from the heavens that weigh in at around 125 pounds each.

This is just a portion of the events that will take place during the Tribulation. It will be a time of unspeakable horrors and trials. However, Christians should ever have to worry about this. If you are not saved, I challenge you to come to Jesus and be born again!

V. 23-28 Days Of Intense Personalities - During the Tribulation, there will be many personalities involved in the devil's work. It will be a time of great deception. Surely, some will be looking for a means of escape. However, no false Christ can offer humanity the peace and salvation that comes only through the Lord Jesus Christ, (John 14:6).

V. 29 Days Of Intense Presentations - These events have already been touched on previously. However, suffice it to say that there will come a day when the moon will turn to blood, the sun will be darkened and the stars will fall from their sockets. There will be signs in Heaven surrounding the return of the Lord Jesus.

I remember that as a child I would hear adults speak of these things. I remember being terrified by them. I remember seeing that big, red, harvest moon as it hung on top of the hills. I remember thinking that the end had arrived. I knew that I was lost, but I never tried to do anything about it. Then, when I got saved, I learned the truth. Now when I see that red moon, I rejoice! It just reminds me that Jesus is coming soon!

V. 22 They Are Temporary Days - The Bible tells us that, even in the midst of His wrath, God remembers mercy. (Hab. 3:2). He will accomplish His purposes, but He will preserve the remnant of them that love Him to the end. Even while He judges the world, He still deals with His people in love!

TODAY’S HYMN!
“Lift Him Up” By: Johnson Oatman, Jr. (1906)


Stanza 1:
How to reach the masses, men of every birth,
For an answer, Jesus gave the key:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
Will draw all men unto Me.”


Refrain:
Lift Him up, Lift Him up,
Still He speaks from eternity:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
Will draw all men unto Me.”


Stanza 2:
Oh! the world is hungry for the Living Bread,
Lift the Savior up for them to see;
Trust Him, and do not doubt the words that He said,
“I’ll draw all men unto Me.”


Refrain:
Lift Him up, Lift Him up,
Still He speaks from eternity:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
Will draw all men unto Me.”


Stanza 3:
Don’t exalt the preacher, don’t exalt the pew,
Preach the Gospel simple, full and free;
Prove Him and you will find that promise is true,
“I’ll draw all men unto Me.”


Refrain:
Lift Him up, Lift Him up,
Still He speaks from eternity:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
Will draw all men unto Me.”


Stanza 4:
Lift Him up by living as a Christian ought,
Let the world in you the Savior see;
Then men will gladly follow Him Who once taught,
“I’ll draw all men unto Me.”


Refrain:
Lift Him up, Lift Him up,
Still He speaks from eternity:
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth,
Will draw all men unto Me.”


TODAY’S PRAYER!
Heavenly and Holy Father, Risen and Living God!
We worship You and thank You that You are The God of Love! Thank You for loving us even before we knew You. We praise You, especially for sacrificing Your Son for us, that through His death, burial and resurrection, we might believe and follow Him to Your glory, praise and honor. There is no greater love than Your love. Your love brings healing for us for all times and in ways we may not begin to imagine or know. We know that no matter what is happening in our lives, Your love for us is unending. We bow before our God with praise and gladness. We praise You with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength. We praise You for Your marvelous works. We rejoice in You with songs and hymns of praise. Because Jesus lives, we too have the hope and promise of eternal life. Thank You for Jesus, our Redeemer, Savior, King, Lord, Master and Friend. In His glorious name we pray! Amen!

WORDS OF WISDOM, TODAY'S THOUGHT!
4/19
Notice that before these 6 judgments are poured out on the earth, there is a time of silence in Heaven. It appears that what is about to happen is so severe that it calls for a time of silence and of mourning. All of God's judgment is performed out of holiness and not a desire to make men suffer! God does not like to destroy the wicked. But, His righteousness demands it!
