Sermon note (Encounter Night)
The devil outplayed his hands. By focusing on Israel, he is fulfilling bible prophecy.
Make not My Father’s house the house of merchandise.
Now it is “make not your house”
Our generation or previous generation saw Israel came back against all odds.
The story of one nation, the nation of Israel.
What have we got to look forward to?
The Lord is our Bridegroom and He is coming back for His bride!
The great tribulation and the times of Jacob’s troubles. It is going to be terrible. Some will teach we will go halfway, some said we wont be raptured.
There are people robbing the church of the blessed hope (rapture)
Are we going through the great tribulation?
The Lord does not want us to be ignorant in the time we live in.
Our Bridegroom is coming. Half of bible prophecy has been fulfilled.
Bible knowledge only is not enough we have to have the heart for Jesus!
Mary asked ” tell me where u have buried Him and i will go and take Him”
She did not believe He rose from the dead but she had the heart for Jesus.
Imagine using bible knowledge to come against the Lord? That is pride to proof we have bible knowledge.
Heart of love. The Lord can teach those who have the heart of love for Him!
He will return for Israel
For the church He will come in rapture!
Jesus Predicts the Destruction of the Temple
Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
3 questions above
The western wall is not the temple wall.
If the 2nd coming is not important why did Jesus said so long about it in Chapter 24
Matt 24 is for the Jewish who lived in the last days.
In the rapture Jesus come for us.
At the end of 7 years He will come back with us for Israel!
The church is raptured!! Church is made up of people!!
In the rapture He is in the air. He called us and we are raptured!!
Raptured means caught away
Rapture is not a new theory
Nearly one out of 22 verses talk abt the 2nd coming of the Lord!!
If we dun preach the rapture, people will be robbed of their blessed hope!
1 John 3:2-3
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
The Great Tribulation
“Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath.
Long suffering of God is mercy.
Mockery about 2nd coming even happened in church!
Thank God Noah believed in escape! God told Noah to escape.
Abraham escaped too.
If God gives us a way to escape from the world at its worst, we will take it!
6 hours after Jesus sat down with His disciples, He went to the upper room, He told them let not your hearts be troubled.
The Way, the Truth, and the Life
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
Rapture is us having our final inheritance, a glorified body!
The grace of God teaches us to look for the Blessed Hope! We got to look up and not look down.
Rapture can happen anytime!
Behold I am coming quickly!
“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
I Am Coming Quickly
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Trained by Saving Grace
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
Unbelievers will not be raptured.
We are the generation who has seen Israel come back as nation and most likely is our generation who will see the rapture!
1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.
We will be delivered from the wrath to come.
1 Thessalonians 5:9
For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
The Comfort of Christ’s Coming
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep.
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Himself took our infirmities!!
Rapture will happen such that the world won’t know. It happened so fast!
The rapture will happen so fast that only those who are saved will be attuned to Him
Once the big Magnet comes for us we will all go up!
10 virgins are the bride-maids, not the bride. Bride raptured already!!
Alive and remain! As long as u r saved, u r raptured!
1 Corinthians 15:51-55
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?”
144 thousand of Jewish evangelists will repent after we are raptured.
We are going to have a body that is incorruptible!!
Brand new body!!
We are not floating like the spirit.
1 Corinthians 15:56-58
The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
According to the number of years after the Jubilee you shall buy from your neighbor, and according to the number of years of crops he shall sell to you. According to the multitude of years you shall increase its price, and according to the fewer number of years you shall diminish its price; for he sells to you according to the number of the years of the crops.
Occupy till Jesus comes. Be steadfast and abounding in the work of the Lord.
We cannot judge the truth based on a few.
When rapture happen, ur children will not enter into hospital or die. Ur children will have brand new bodies forever!
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.
Don’t rob the church of the blessed hope!
Blessed hope purifies!
If you don’t believe His coming for us, the result is we come against love.
Our Bridegroom, the One who loves us, will come for us!!
Crown given to champions in those days.
However it has been taught to us, we are not going to stand at the judgement of throne to be judged.
The Judge is our righteousness! We are standing in front of the throne in our new body after our rapture!
The more we see the days coming, lets not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together!
Lets be a blessing to mankind!
Hold it lightly cos He is coming!!
The key to having not troubled heart, the next verse Jesus said He will come again to receive to Himself.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.
He is Deity and Man
But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
Bright and morning Star!
Jesus is coming for the church first!
To Israel He comes as Sun.
Rebekah asked the unnamed servant to tell her more about Issac. Just like us, Holy Spirit tells us more about Jesus!
Finally she saw Issac. She fell off the camel right into his arms.
Jesus will sweep us off His feet!
He is coming!! He said 3 times! He is longing for us! Are we longing for Him?
We loved because He first loved us!
Holy Spirit and bride said come.. come Lord Jesus! Bridal Affection. Come Lord Jesus!!
No more sorrow, no more tears, no more crying, no more pain. Forever!
He is waiting for the spirit and bride to say..,come!
Let Him who thirst, come
Surely He is coming quickly! Amen! Even so, come, Lord Jesus!! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us!
