Encouraging Word for you and read to the end of the Bible-based teaching of… The message all the signs of his coming deductible to begin his message talking about one of the most misunderstood passage of Scripture gain insight together and let's meeting on our website right now. Tewonline.org, G.
Tewonline.org large but I believe Matthew 20 amongst many other passages is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted passages in God's word. I'm totally, I have no idea how old I'm going to be when my time comes, to be with the Lord. If you ever wondered how long you going to live, you know, we take off retirement plans and we think about what we going to do like sure Social Security is right, but not of us know none of us know about tomorrow.
None of us know how old we going to be will how young we going to be the more I think about it. When I think about the future, perhaps about going to think about what would happen if God showed me how was going to die one day.
Is it possible is it possible that I could die in the midst of much pain that possible.
Is it possible that I may die in a car crash.
Is that possible, is it possible I may be killed. No.
Is it possible that something that I really would like to think about rates me down there. See, that's what faith is all about faith means that I'm not there. I don't necessarily understand but I just entrust myself to go. You see, God is who he says he is very Matthew chapter 20 for Jesus who is God is speaking from the heart of God. He speaking at the present time when he was speaking but he's talking about tomorrow God in Christ Jesus is talking about a time that you and I know nothing about. We haven't gone there. We know nothing about it but Jesus Christ is giving to us and insight into how this is going to relate to himself everything about eschatology has to do with Jesus Christ.
It doesn't have to do with this. Everything in the around the person work Jesus Christ's life and deities finished work upon the cross is intercessory ministry, seated at the right hand of the father.
He's probably return to this earth and our anticipated reunion with him when we are going to be forever. So, Jesus Christ. Matthew 24 was amongst many other passages is telling us about events until he comes for the next couple of weeks my message is simply entitled the signs of his coming there last year, but in future signs or events).
Matthew 24 but I believe that we need to take particular note for when we study then we come to a fresh understanding of how we relate as a will and as a people to this one is the most high God gives us a glimpse into his heart. God prepares us, God allows us by the dispensation of his grace to understand his written decree. God in his majesty looks out the cross this world and we all his subjects and he says let me tell you where you going and let me live you what to look out and let me notify you that my son Jesus Christ is going to come back and he's going to receive you unto himself. I want you to know about this gospel in very Matthew chapter 24 thereof amongst many other dynamics seven major signs that Jesus points out, somewhat dramatically and most fully hear from his own mouth read to you this again.
Matthew 24 verse one Bible says that Jesus left the temple and was working away when his disciples came to him to call his attention to its buildings. Jesus said these things I tell you the truth that one stone here will be left upon another.
Everyone will be thrown down as Jesus was sitting later on the Mount of olives. His disciples came to him privately tell us they said number one, when will this happen. Number two. What would be the sound of your coming number three.
When would be the end of the age. So Jesus answered the questions that no one deceives you from anyone, and by maintaining I'm the Christ, and will deceive many. You will hear of rumors and rumors of wars that seek to put your mod along such things must happen that the industry become nation will rise against nation kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and rights in various places. These things are the beginning of birth. Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to bed. You will be height nations because of me.
At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of those who wrote that he stands firm to the end will be so this is where we got a focus today and this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole, as of the many and then the end will come from metrics like father like you getting to the syntactical arrangement in the Greek text something that's rather significant gel that lost phrase and then the end will come. That Jesus is saying here is that a sign of the coming of Jesus Christ being the fact that before I come back this gospel of the kingdom will be preached. People of every language in every tribe Sunday to tell you something. I have a real problem with it and have a problem with what Jesus says I have about him as a human being in the year 2002, because I know that there are many people in the world who have never heard the gospel was Jesus tripping about when he said this gospel of the kingdom.
Jesus was talking about himself. The gospel is the years about Jesus Christ. It's the good news about the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. It's the good news about the ministry of Jesus Christ. It's the good news about the death of Jesus on the cruel Roman cross.
It's the good news about his triumphant resurrection and his conquering of sin and about his ascension to be seated at the right hand of the father is intercessory ministry in our lives.
It is about the deposit, guaranteeing us by the power and about the fact that Jesus Christ going to come back again and he is going to type those of us who believe in him to be with him forever that Jesus was talking about. He said this gospel of the kingdom it does us will find what Jesus had in mind that we have a problem you know that in 1950, I could never say the things that I'm about to say to you right now Jesus had in mind when he was talking about this. You might say to me today with pastor Wayne is Jesus coming back soon as I asked that question I have to go to verse 36 of chapter 24 because the Bible says that Jesus tells us no one knows about that day will not even the angels in heaven. Will the sun but only the father. I don't know but I do know this, that Jesus said that something dramatic is going to happen.
The sign the first one we looked at both sides.
That was the first sign that to remain the second one was the matter of enduring believers. I'm going to come back to this because Jesus pointed out, he told us about this record in verse 13 he said those stand firm to the end will be saved, and was telling us he was telling us that increasingly prior to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, that they would be more persecution, more hatred or antagonism. There is persecution of the church, the more you going to be able tribe plaintiff by those who belong to Jesus Christ, you can go from campus to campus in the United States of America whether they have the main Baptist or Methodist or nothing in between is becoming increasingly difficult to be a practicing again believe that on the campuses of these United States of America.
Jesus said I'm going to tell you as you look into the is going to become increasingly difficult because of the going to be easily identifiable.
You could just put them out just like the salt of the earth like a lot of the will. You can go about school campuses today and it doesn't take you long until you discover those young people who not only love the Lord Jesus Christ. But you stand for Jesus Christ will say to the chronological unfolding of time, made in his second coming of believers is going to become a sign of the immigrant return of the Lord Jesus Christ. There's 1/3 one worldwide motion. See this is what Jesus is talking about your friends.
I'm going to submit to you that if I was Charles Haddon Spurgeon preaching in the latter century. I could not have had a clear understanding of this accepting by the faith that God gave to me. There could've been very little practical insight. I'm going to submit to you that in years gone by. It must've been a very difficult thing for Bible expositors to come to a finite understanding of God was talking about but I guarantee you that today things are becoming more apparent and clear that I still have a problem because they're all nations and people in the world have not heard the gospel. Let's understand something here today when Jesus was talking about the gospel will be preached in the whole is testimony to nations he was not putting a timeout on the resin tripping about stopping here at the rapture of the church.
Jesus was going into the tribulation he was going to his second coming, which is going to come at the end of the great tribulation brought another question. One of the gospel is going to be preached to his second coming is that going to happen after the rapture of the church.
Just think about Bible teaches us that the church will be taken out of this world. Believers will be taken out of this world, the spirit of God will be taken out of this world. How are people going to come about Jesus Christ. What Jesus is teaching here. Indeed, there is no church in my witness, and no Holy Spirit to himself. IW for ways in which tribulation science would come to know Christ. I'm not up to six women give them to you again.
You want to know how people are going to come to know Jesus. After the rapture. Let me get them to you again by the rapture but prior to the rapture number two by the events of the rapture themselves.
I want you to think about my wife is sitting right over there this morning. We love each other. We've known one another for 30 years. That's just a few just for a moment that my wife loves the Lord Jesus Christ and I don't she's been a living testimony for Jesus all the laughter I have and I resisted I played a game being one of these false believers. I've lived a life of pretense and deception.
I'm just emasculating this morning and the rapture of the church happens. The Bible says, but one which you will be in the field.
One will be left the other one will will be taken.
The other one will be left behind. There's going to be massive destruction claims going to crash. I believe I believe buses again. The writing is because bus drivers will be gone. I believe that there be two people in a beta husband in the life and one that we taken and the other one will be left behind. You say to me, people come to know Jesus Christ after the rapture by the events of the rapture left behind. Thanks. Let me tell you something if suddenly my wife was taken in this world was bronzed as it's going to be an absolute chaos. I think that I'm probably going to want to believe. Are you listening the events of the rapture itself.
Number three tribulation saints will be saved by the witness of the two witnesses that if you want to know about the revelation everybody needs to turn to Revelation. We had to be there for a while so you might as well get up to Bibles and turn to Revelation chapter 11 with me. Let me show you something remarkable. Revelation chapter 11.
That's what the word says God says in chapter 11 verse three. I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1260 days clothing sector. I'm not going to get in the room. These things now that the tribulation is going to be seven years divided into two equal parts all busy. You can do your math on 1260 days, God gives to us an accurate account of things that he is giving to us, but suffice to say that God God has agreed that during the tribulation after the rapture when the church is gone. Christians about this boot is gone but ways in which people are going to come to know him through the use of these two workers. Well, God's going to protect them for a number of days and then the crowd is going to turn against them. Just like they did against Jesus they going to kill seller for which people are going to come to know Jesus Christ is by the resurrection of the two witnesses.
If you want to read about in verse 11 but all 3 1/2 days a breath of life from God entered where did this come from God. Only God could do this folks someone said to me one time. This is just symbolism frame. Listen to me this is an symbolism. God doesn't think about symbolism.
God doesn't need to perking symbols and all kinds of weird things to try and pretend that he's getting God as God. Let me tell you something that you say to me pastoral letters that mean really tell you what it means means that after 3 1/2 days a breath of life from God entered them any questions that happen based on their feet by riverbed everybody settled in bed and Farah's.
Those I can understand that.
Then I heard a loud burst from heaven saying to them that went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked all these tribulation saints going to come to know Jesus Christ. Well, perhaps by the resurrection of the two witnesses. But there's life with what they are going to come to know Jesus Christ. And that is the hundred and 44,000 Jewish evangelists but friends I don't have enough time to do a thorough study of this right now will come back to the turn in your Bibles to Revelation chapter 7 the witness of the 144,000.
God has a special relationship with the Jewish nation wide with exhaust pay careful attention to what is going on in Israel, listen, God has a special relationship with the nation of Israel. One of these days I'm in a pre-Super Bowl related to the Romans and understand that even though daily but listen Revelation chapter 7 verse. The number of those who receive by the way that they see you is the same word that we get when we took about the blood of Jesus Christ, which is the only means by which we can be completely package delivered as holy and righteous into the presence of various other means by which this is God's system. We are all screwed up God's righteousness when he said yes. What a Savior you listening to Dr. Don Wilton. We are ready to encourage you to pray with you anytime our phone numbers 866899673 right never some exciting resources. You'll find our website that will charge you for sure websites. TW online.org EW online.org would love to be a part of your daily life.
Be sure and sign up for daily Encouraging Word email that's on our website TW online.org now back today's great teaching… Like some time, number of those that was 34,000 families, tribes of Israel is not looked, and there before me was a great multitude, I want you to remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 24. There was a great multitude that no one could count some in every nation, from every tribe, every people, every language, standing before ending some of the Lamb, wearing white branches in the hands verse 13 one of the other was lastly teasing him, on subcellular and he said these are very have come all tribulation, and have made in the blood of the lamb smelling folks shopping time God and Jesus Christ when Jesus was speaking he was looking into the future. He wasn't trying to put something upon us that we couldn't why do you think the apostle Peter says in first this loading strap. He closes these entire diatribe on these words.
So encourage them. Another these were all these people going to come to know Christ. One way is because of the witness of the hundred and 44,000 who are going to be sent out and by the way, if you don't believe for one moment the Jewish people have already scattered every you haven't been around. You will find people of the nation of Israel in every segment of society already has his evangelists in place but there's a six way by which these people come to know Christ. That is, through his angels. I commend you for spreading the word of God that we have a six means by which these people would come to know Christ. The ancients recite house that will turn with me to Revelation chapter 13 very quick listen to all those pages love to hear the word of God turning in God's house Revelation in chapter 14 verse six. By the way, the first five verses have to do with the hundred and 44,000 but I'm going to move on Sunday for just about because thinking God is telling us that the primary means by which he will share the gospel with every person is by virtue of his angels and by the way there.
All three of them. We don't know whether the same one that there are three distinct references to three angels writing these passages. Let me read. Then I saw another angel flying in mid air, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim.
Remember what I told you about the gospel. This angel by the authority of God the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth to every nation to every slab to everyone and every people not what Jesus said in Matthew 20 will Jesus in Matthew 24. Looking at the imminence of his return something he said this gospel of the kingdom will be preached to all nations, and then the end will come. God letters confirming the testimony of Jesus Christ. Verse seven he said in the lab. God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come to Jesus I in Matthew 24 Jesus said this gospel of the kingdom will be preached to people and bring the end will come. Just the angel of the end of the great tribulation going through the peoples of the railing upon them to repent their hearts to God because the IRB's judgment was, that is the site worship him who made the heavens of the sea and the springs of the second angel verse nine recite the second angel followed and saved is Babylon the great, by the way, what is Babylon. Babylon is the center of the document of the Antichrist, but it is Babylon the center of the sphere of the evil duplicitous abuse. Babylon is juxtaposed against God's holy city. The city of Jerusalem and the angel says Babylon the great, which made all nations drink the maddening wine of the rebel preacher comes with the followed women same allowed voice. If anyone worships the beast and his image and received he's back on the hand by the way what is the mark of the beast anyone cited 666 why the number six when we get that from by the right turn with me back to chapter 30 go to the chapter 13 verse chapter 13 last verse, verse 18. Robin says if anyone has insight let him calculate the number of the beast is man's number. The number 666666. You see, the number seven is God's number seven is perfect. That is why God created the heavens and in seven days and we could go on and on six means that man is imperfect outside and inside all the glorious proof that this Jesus Christ and God heavenly father, a powerful message for him preach and teach from the pulpit.
