Summary: You and I should not fret when we look all around us and realize what an evil and danderous time we’re living in, but let us try to remember that all these things that seem so frightful are nothing more than Prophcey being set up to come too pass, accordi
2 Timothy 3:1-5 #-3 PROPHECEY 6-25-11
In recent weeks we talked a little about Prophecy, let me say first of all that Christians consider prophecy to be directly from God; however ever person that makes a prediction is not a spokes person for God, there have always been false prophets and their still at it today.
The reason for bringing these broadcasts to do with prophecy is with the hope that the doubters and skeptics might finally realize that there have been numerous prophecies that have come to pass just exactly like was fore told, and therefore it stands to reason that the others will also at Gods set time, and that many lost souls will be saved before it’s everlastingly to late, we’re not trying to prove that the word of God is true, but because of the fulfilled prophecies it does that very thing.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, ---
The recent false prophet that prophesied that the world was coming to and end this past may has had a stroke according to the news.
We are today living in the most dangerous time that the world has ever seen, Paul said in
2 Timothy 3: 1-5 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent,* (no self control) fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
I want to try to illustrate a point right here,
This earth that we are living on and in, is really not such a big place, when I was in the 3rd Marine division there in Okinawa, our battalion was on 5 different amphibious landing ships, and we were constantly going from one country to another there in the far east, Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong China, all those countries in that neck of the woods so to speak, we were a floating battle ready battalion, and I’m sure that still goes on today, I’ve said all that to say this, when the sea was calm I have many times looked out on the horizon of the sea and as any person that’s been there can tell you, you can actually see the taper of the world, it’s not very big at all.
The distance around the Earth, also known as its "circumference", is 24906 miles—and its about 8 miles thick, or so the dictionaries say. So its really not very large at all, and it has evil men in charge of powerful and distructive devices and one day these nuclear deviceses will be unleashed on its inhabitants, little peanut headed man wants to kill other people.
The crooks commits some horrendous crime and so he thinks if he gets out of the country and goes to another part of the world all will be well, so he boards a plane and flies to a foreign country, think of what he just did, he leaves the ground here and in a short time he’s landing there, in other words, there’s no way that he can escape from this little world, the only way a person is going to get out of this world alive is too be saved and one day he’ll arrive in the heavenly country that we read about in Gods word, that’s our blessed hope, that is what we that are saved have to look forward too, and it’s going to happen just as sure as we here together today thinking on the things of God,, the reason we know for sure that the rapture is going to happen is, IT’S FORE TOLD IN GODS WORD, I means its pinned down in black and white. God knows the very day and hour that it’s to happen. We’ve all heard the old song “I’m using my Bible for a road map” a lot of truth is in that song.
We see things that are going on today on the news channels that there is turmoil and chouse in every part of the world, and it worries us much of the time after all it’s our human nature to worry, but really all we’re witnessing is the ground work being laid for the next prophecy to take place.
Listen-- We see the weather man make a fore cast that it’s going to snow beginning on a certain day, and it seems that lately they have been pretty accurate. I mean as we look out our windows when the fore cast is given it looks to us like there’s no way it’s going to snow, there’s not a cloud in the sky, but low and behold in a few hours it begins to become colder and the clouds are becoming thick and low.
