Matthew 24. "The End is Near" Sunday December 3, 2017 We, kind of laugh at the comics, showing someone caring a banner saying, the end is near. Actually, we, have seen how true that is for so many people. We, think that we, are invincible and nothing is going to happen to us. We, only have to look, at the news and see, how many leave this earth, early to their reward. If, we do not have, Jesus as savior, we will reap, the wrath of GOD, and we, only have to read, the book of revelation, to see the horror, that awaits those, who do not know, Jesus as savior. The key, for us, about the end of time, is not, that we know the signs, but that we know, Jesus as savior and we, are striving, to do the will of GOD. The will of GOD, is to Love GOD, and Love thy neighbor, and for us, to follow the scriptural instructions, given to us. The study, of the end of time, should not scare us, or to depress us, it is a reminder for us to be ready. Prayerfully. Based, on my studies, the end of this world, will come, at the end of seven years, of tribulation. The Rapture of the church, will take place, before Chapter 6 in revelation, which starts, the seven years of tribulation. The church, will be raptured, before the tribulation. ( Rev. 3: 10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth ) ( GOD=s people, of which we are one, have had plenty, of warnings to be ready, when GOD=s wrath, was to come upon the earth, Remember Noah, Nineveh, Sodom and Gomorrah. ) The two witnesses, will preach, for the first, three and one-half years, of the tribulation. Upon which, they will be killed, and brought back to life, and raptured, into heaven. At the beginning, of the last three, and one-half years, the antichrist, will set himself up, in the temple, to be worshiped as GOD. Three great, supernatural events occur in the first three and one-half years, of the tribulation, the rapture of the church, the seven seals, the seven trumpets. Then, if we can imagine, it gets worse, the last three and one-half years, which is called the great tribulation, with 200 miles of blood and the seven bowls. But, Jesus tells, that even though, this evil, is greater than anything, we have seen, we, must endure, to the end, of our life, to escape, reap our heavenly reward. Matt 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. A. Because of such evil, the love of man for GOD, shall wax cold. 1-15 B. Christians saved during the tribulation must flee Jerusalem when the antichrist comes to destroy Jerusalem. 16-22 C. Christ will be seen by everyone when he comes again.23-28 D. The sun, moon, stars no longer shine, the trumpet shall sound.29-31 E.As in the days of Noah, people will not be watching for his return.32-41 F. Watch for in such an hour as ye think not, Lord cometh.42-51 May GOD through His son Jesus bless you with His grace and peace multiplied.
