Today's broadcast is a continuation of the series The Second Coming of Christ.
This is the old trailblazer broadcast this past our pedometer riding old man out again this morning.
Blazing the path to the hearts of sinners not only come on it and midnight. In some places no 4 o'clock in the morning. Other places lady call me the dancer trailblazer. I get up at 4 o'clock in the morning to listen to. You will appreciate that, but basically alone in the morning.
So always a good morning good morning and I wish you would write me a call me say good morning trailblazer. We bring you the study will begin yesterday with a little introduction and basic study.
But today we want to get started in the coming of our blessed Lord, to return the soon return of our blessed Lord back to this whole scene cursed my friend.
But listen less. Notice first the importance of the doctrine of the second coming of Christ as set fools in the Bible in its relationship to all other doctrine, Christ first coming is without question the basic or the foundation truth and apart from it. We have no Christianity, no salvation, no second coming, but it's place in the Bible is almost insignificant when compared to the mention of the second coming. My friend list the statement concerning the second coming of Christ occurs in the New Testament on an average of once every 20 versus let me make that statement again the statement concerning the second coming of Christ occurs in the New Testament on an average of once every 20 versus in other words, the second coming is mentioned in the New Testament over 318 times. Then, by far the greater number of predictions concerning Christ in the Old Testament are connected with the second coming did it ever occur to you that the coming again of the Lord is the only doctrine in the Bible which God bids us to comfort sorrowing saints with now limited. Let me let me go back there. Maybe you didn't catch that list now put down the pots and pans their mama and I listen listen. Did it ever occur to you that the coming again of our blessed Lord is the only doctrine in the Bible with which God bids us pastors and others to comfort sorrowing saints. Listen to first Thessalonians 418 wherefore comfort one another with these words. This statement follows several versus setting forth the second coming of our Lord back to earth again. This is also true of the Old Testament Terminator Isaiah. Hope you have your Bibles thereby you Jim's Kona you have a place where you read and meditate in the morning or at night and you have your Bible, there quickly turned Isaiah chapter 40. He says comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith the Lord old Zion that bring good tidings get the onto the high mountains of Jerusalem that bring us good tidings, lift up thy voice was strength lifted high, be not afraid say to the cities of Judah, behold, your God, behold, the Lord God will come with strongman and his arm shall rule for him, behold his reward is with him and his work before him.
I've seen and heard preachers and others try to comfort sorrowing individuals, mothers and dads over the death of a child by telling them that they've gone to heaven. But nowhere in God's word is such comfort set forth is the second coming of our Lord that confronts the hearts of born-again believers yes my friend list. Strange. Maybe. Maybe you feel it to be strange, but it's true. In the next place the coming again of the Lord Jesus and the events connected with his coming are the blessed hope and eager desire of every born-again believer listen to Titus two verse 13 looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ. Listen again to second Peter three. Seeing that these things are thus all to be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy living and godliness, looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day by reason of which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved and the elements shall melt with fervent heat.
Once the second coming of Christ was the blessed hope of the church. But today, the average groove that calls himself a church now. No, scarcely nothing of the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ all and his coming is not that blessed hope today we live in an hour of such spiritual darkness, and the second coming of Christ has been so belittled, so made fun of. So minimize and so cried down and counted nonessentials unimportant and insignificant by the average preacher and theological professor until our people are in all but total darkness. And there is no hope in their bosom. But thank the Lord thanked the Lord the second coming of Christ is the blessed hope and the desire of every true born-again believer.
I know and I mentioned to you folks.
I listen to radio preachers at night and I'm not critical, but I don't hear him speaking about the second coming of Christ. I don't hear him speaking about the reality of Christ to their own heart. I never hear one of them. I never never hear one of them tell how the Lord saved him. I never hear one of them pale counted.
They were awakened to the fact that they were a lost sinner.
No know the total depravity of man is not preached is not heard of know the average child now comes up in the Sunday school classes in our Protestant churches, they are taught to love Jesus sweet Jesus. They sing that song.
Oh how I love Jesus but my friend the total depravity of the human heart is not touched by the Sunday school teachers nor the pastor. Now let's notice again that the coming again of the Lord is a teaching which is the peculiar and particular object of hatred and ridicule of unsaved religionists who walk after their own lusts now.
Hope you got it whirly intellectual preachers whirly churches and whirly professed Christians hate this doctrine of the second coming who walk after their own lusts. Now listen to the word of God. In second Peter three second Peter 33 knowing this first, that in the last days mockers shall come walking after their own lust and seeing where is the promise of his coming far from the day that the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation, yes.
The doctrine of the second coming of Christ is an object of hatred and ridicule on the part of unsaved religionists. This is the one sign of his second coming, the one sign of his soon coming because he says here in the last days, we read that verse in the last days mockers mockers shall come with living in those days before you turn folks belittled make fun of lab at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ back to earth again, this shows first of all, that they don't know the Lord or they would want to seem what is the desire of your heart today believer unit. You say you know the Lord. What is your desire is to live a long life like poker doing today getting getting all you can put it in a can sit on the can is that you desire. No, not me.
I believe ever truly born-again believer desires to see the man to want the on the Lord who died for him the individual. The person I'm trying to say who died for him. The sandwich appetite just a little bit to no that the son of God died to save your post so I know I may not have three people who agree with me out there, but my friend, if you know the Lord. If you been redeemed bought back from the slave market of sin. You know it.
If you truly trust in the Lord, you know, you may be not what you want to be but you not what you used to be. And you know that you have nothing to do with your salvation is all of grace all because of the providence of our blessed Lord, all because he is sovereign and does as he pleases, and by his marvelous grace. One day, one night somewhere, somehow, the Holy Spirit came there and dealt with your postal I don't care if you was religious or nonreligious.
You might've been a pastor, a preacher, Sunday school teacher piano player or just her whirling out there in the world, like I was in the Lord, by the grace of God through the preaching of the truth through the singing of some old song to the testimony of some old St. telling how the Lord save them. The Holy Spirit took a word send home to your heart like a Bob Derek. That means you can't pull it out. You can't pull it out, you may walk around for days and weeks one and was wrong was wrong would be was wrong would use you not say was wrong with you. You begin to see that you are wretched pool also and that's the greatest thing that ever happens to you openly let particular day, my friend.
Although I know that this is the foreign strange doctrines of some of you some of your laughing and cutting up and pooh-poohing old trailblazer and I know I know I used to ride to work with a group of men in the car and when I drove I had trailblazer all because Pastor Jim was on the radio alive at that time many years ago and he would come home with just broadcast. He had all the sound effects and thinkable Dan walking tall, plop plop, and in all that and they would make phone in my car I be driving my car collide turn the radio on. They wouldn't do it when they were driving we pool pool rod and will not have it ready on. They would lay out know my friend. They all didn't toenail Orlando.
I never heard one of them. See in the all gone now. All those photos ago, but my friend, I knew I know that's not for me. I don't judge anybody the grace of God's own thing and makes a difference in my life, and eat you alive. My friend, if you save is all because of the grace of God I asked you are you save this morning. The do you know the Lord is he real to you, heart. I believe in reality folks. I do, I do not I preach reality. And I know we have a book, hereby Pastor Jim center fleeing from reality you like it. Call me I'll send it to you but my friend great to be with you this time bringing the studies now. New subject but we looking at the soon coming of our blessed Lord is coming. I don't know when is coming in. I may be here. I've often told folk not be here when you come. That's not for me to say my friend happy with the broadcast a little.
