Today's message with Dr. Don Wilton.
This one the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him to show his servants what must soon take place. You made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he sold.
That is the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed all those who hear it and blessed all those who take to heart what is written in it because the time is near. I drawn to the seven churches in the province of Asia Grace and peace to you from him who is, who was is to come, and from the seven spirits before the throne from Jesus Christ is a faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and is made us to be a kingdom of priests to serve his God and father to him be glory and power ever and forever he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who killed him, and all the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be amen.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, says the Lord God is and who was, and it is to come, the Almighty. I go to chapter 4 quickly go to chapter 4. This is fantastic but chapter full Opry speaks to the seven churches which we are going to be looking at together.
Often this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven.
And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet, saying, yeah, and I will show you what must soon take place off to bed. So from this point in chapter full all the way through to the end of the book of Revelation. God shows us what happens off the old believers have gone in through the open door of heaven into the presence of the Lord our God, and receded on.
He strode look at verse two of chapter full at this at once. I was in the spirit. By the way, that's where we get our word rapture from you with the word rapture. That's where it comes up at once I was in the spirit and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it. The rest of that chapter describes the beauty the brilliance and the majesty of God seated on his throne.
Billy Graham said I don't understand everything in God's word but I believe everything in God's word. I promise you over the next couple of days and weeks. In fact, any study like this you find yourself sitting there saying what how, but I promise you this God by his Spirit is going to give you a spirit of trust and belief. You know it you know it you can sense it already gone to you known him saying you known God say so what does God's word say to us what is God's would tell us we just put this out there for us, someone God's word tells us that this is the revelation this one the revelation it's the revelation you know that for the word revelation. Most of us understand it means to pull back the cover means to make known what lies beneath means to unveil the mystery that another word is to uncover to expose make it plain. The revelation the book the revelation it's the revelation it's making known things that we just don't understand at a time that we've never been not one of us is ever God who already gone through all of this and by the way, Jesus is still going to come back in the clouds.
We know we've never done it.
Bible says every see him the revelation.
This revelation, the book the word God is telling us. I know I'm backward, for you going to show you number two God's word tells us it's about Jesus Christ. Revelation of Jesus Christ brought the verse one that's what Revelation is about all about Jesus guys I'm going to tell you something when it comes to in times there are so many signs of the end times I been talking about some of them even on my daily little short video that I've been sending out that so many are being blessed by the many signs you know we look around and I and and I could go off at an angle here wars and rumors of wars, famines and earthquakes. Unrest a great falling away godlessness mockery, a disdainful Jesus Christ blasphemy. By the way you heard how many times and how many people use God's name in the name of Jesus Christ in blasphemy. You notice that you have. You know the Bible says it's at the name of Jesus that everyone will bow.
Have you noticed by the wave you have a bone to watch a movie. Have you ever heard anybody's drop of brick on the turn site Buddha or how about Mohammed Hare Krishna naming all the religions of the Lord you ever hear anybody use their name as a cuss word never the only name you ever hear is a cuss word is you brought it you have anybody you ever heard anybody say all boarded talk today never heard anybody use a deity or a God or a pagan God Nonno stories you got it you know we look around and see if cashless society.
Credit cards trying to figure out just think for a moment okay. Just think for a moment about Instagram, Twitter, emails. Just think how easy it is to communicate just put a button you can take a picture I weaned Instagram, the other down. He put one picture of my trip in Alaska. I was just compelled to do you go to my Instagram account. It's me flying through the air about to do the polar plunge. I mean, you talk about take your breath away and I'm Teddy my wife Courtney in the air you want to see the rest of it. That's why didn't put it on Instagram you know your I am in Alaska right in the fortunes of the great glacier in freezing water you take a picture and you push a button and people around the world can see it. I had some people in Africa. Another place the wound site.
You did that have they not mass communication. By the way, what about the big guy in the sky and many of you noticed or thought. Sometimes the two telephones listening to you.
By the way, have you noticed sometimes you can talk and all of a sudden your telephone your phone, your iPhone starts writing what you're saying down in a text message you noticed, I have you you know I was in Alaska and all of a sudden on my social media I started getting advertisements for Alaska and I hadn't seen Jeannie pictures out how they out my phone know that what is God's would tell us God's word tells us it's the revelation of God's word tells us it's about Jesus. If it's kinda it's kinda like get this. I may not know this stuff's social media and cashless and boot and fighting in the street and anarchy in politics and I did and God says Jesus brought Jesus number three God's word tells us that it comes from God revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave to him. All why do we need to know that while loop block 1332. For example, one passage reminds us that not even the angels in heaven know when the end will come only became so and blog here in the revelation reminds us that God seen this information about Jesus to show his servants. God did this. It came from God what God is saying is this didn't come from Billy Graham didn't come from Don Wilton didn't come from the Pope didn't come from the Bishop didn't come from the Sunday school teacher.
The life group either the Dean group leader.
It didn't come from your favorite whomever this came from God trusted trusted number 40 tells us that what is going to happen is about to happen. Did you see that with it he says what must soon take place. That's the imminence of the coming of Jesus. What God wants us to know, trusting him is that this is going to happen soon. It's about to happen.
You go to get ready you go to be ready go to be prepared cannot just say that I just want to save this to I'm not trying to be overdramatic.
The two reasons why you cannot afford to give your heart not to give your heart to Jesus. Now I give you to reason they lots of it. Number one because you don't know with your to be alive tomorrow. And number two you don't know whether or not Jesus is about to come back.
Do you trust the Lord Jesus. And then, by the way, it's fantastic to be forgiven of your sin is.
It's also when Jesus comes in your heart me forgive you of your sin. Any possible dispositive pieces from the lease makes rain you to think that is fantastic and that's why Jesus died. That's exactly what you're listening to Dr. Don Wilton and this awesomeness of having our sins forgiven.
It really is life-changing and for some of us it's taken for me to really understand the way that God separates us from our sin literally as far as the east is from the West. Are you burdened by what you know God has already forgiven you for some reason can't forgive yourself all how we'd love to pray with you for literally a breakthrough in leaving the past behind so that you can look ahead wonderfully anticipating what cots can do here in this new year of 2021.

Now back to today's great teaching with Dr. Don Wilton number five God's word tells us that this would be reading is given to believers. CEC is you he made it known by sending his angel to his servant John he sent this to believers. Kent cannot just say this very lovingly.
Unbelievers are you kidding me. They believe this you ever had someone maybe a good person say that such rubbish. I mean who can believe in such junk.
I'm I if you don't have faith if you don't take God and these would some of this stuff you do about a ministry that's why blog plumes of fact he unveils it and you know who he's doing that for believers and you and I are worshiping the Lord right now and we looking at this and you can't explain it. You don't have to understand it, but that belief in you. You just you just believe it. It's real, it's true. Guys listen, I really believe Jesus is coming soon and and I really believe it could be tonight. I knew and I really believe all these things that he's telling us about that.
He's going to come in the clouds and if we still alive believers we are to be court up to join those who already in heaven. And then when we all we got a turnaround going to go back through the open door of heaven into the throne room, all of us say how we benefit in their you not big avenues. The galactic sphere of God's sovereign kingdom. It's never ending its eternal eye, but I'm just I really believe it. It's given to believers number six.
It's designed to bless. I love this part. It's designed to base you got a look at verse three doneness verse three Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy. Blessed are those who hear it and blessed are those who take it to heart so I I meditate God and these would he tells me when I read when I hear when I take to heart what he says here the result is being blessed can you feel that you you right now you you sitting there with your phone with your Bible app you're in your living room you're in that wherever you are today worshiping the Lord, and you can't explain intended.
You just list you can feel it.
Like God's filling your heart with Lacey and is 11 the word number seven.
It's urgent, urgent. If you click to what he sees the end of a verse three he says the time is near third we make so many fantastic people in Alaska that work for Samaritan's purse operation heal our patriots wounded warriors and watching marriages come together, these incredible heroes of hours in following Jesus in believers baptism and frigid waters right there in Alaska and lives just coming back together again to know one of the couples that we may Wayne and Teresa and they work they stationed up there in Alaska and and they were sharing the testimony with us and they seem Wayne looked over and he said you know you said men I we have nothing to do with Jesus. We were 35 years old, married sin, God, are you kidding me. Jesus was a blasphemy in our home with nothing to do them. He talked about messing with drugs, alcohol was these big thing men the more he could get, the more he could bruise the Betty field.
He felt it walk around with a cooler with them all the time you ever met someone knock at amine didn't want to know anything to do the Lord, but they had a frame couple who kept asking them to come to the little church I wouldn't do it, they wouldn't do it. I mean Muncie is wooden are you kidding me go to church or you out of your mind.
And then Teresa said she switched on her television Satan Dr. Billy Graham reached out his Bible and he said I don't understand everything in this book, the Bible, but I believe everything in the Bible and God got a hold of their hearts they went back to that little church. I wish you could meet you know what they knew. During the wintertime. They one of the few couples that stay in remote places they showed us pictures God's like a dream.
Be frank with you, I'd love to do it myself like a bucket list. Seven months they were in these little cabins nobody within 200 miles of the frozen snow followed up like you cannot imagine. Their job is to just keep things going. Nobody else there. Just them.
This whole place they take care of it for Samaritan's purse, and I turned away nothing when you do, you just shut.
He said listen, man is no greater joy than serving the Lord and Matt if they were on their own know they were in a crowded mad I mean the joy in Wayne and Teresa was palpable and you know why because God pulled back the revelation of their lives, their hearts they gave their lives to Jesus and they didn't understand they believed see what God is telling us to do here to check out temperature.
