Summary: The Second Coming..
2nd Thess Chap 2
In today’s world We have to be prepared
for what Could happen at any second!!!
THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS
Or the Rapture- Or The Great Tribulation!
Our English Bible’s don’t use the word Rapture,
But we all know what it means when we hear
Things like – The coming of the Lord or – The
Today we have to BEWARE
We have to Beware of Deceit!!!
We have to Beware of Defection from the Truth!
We have to Beware of Persecution!!
We have to Beware of False Teachings!!
We have to Beware of Worldliness!!
We have to Beware of Inadequate Worship!!
We have to Beware of Un-belief!!!
And it goes On and On
I could probably preach on this for several hours
But I’ll try not to!!! Starting w/ Deceit
MATT CHAP 24:4&5 tells us in words of Jesus
Take heed that no man deceive you
For many shall come in my name saying I am
Christ; and shall deceive many.
This scripture is referring to the false
Who have already spanned in the church
And led many (and God only knows
Right directly to the gates of Hell and its
Happening Right now under our Noses,
and they are trying
To lead everyone that they can today as
And you can be assured that your Name
and My name is on the List
We must fight this Deceit!!!
We only need to take a stand for the truth
JOHN CHAP 8 SAYS:
And ye shall know the Truth and the Truth
Shall set you free!!!
Beware of The Defection from the Truth
Or could also be persecution!!
Matthew chap 24: 9&10 says
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted,
And Shall Kill you – and Ye shall be hated
of all Nations for my names sake
And then shall many be offended – and shall
Betray one another, and shall hate one another!
We can expect to be persecuted when we
Stand On the word of God!!
We are the ones that are considered the
Occult These days – Christians – some
may call us
There’s not to many of us left in this
ole cruel world
This morning if Every Church in the
Full to capacity it would only be 3 % of
The Population of the United States,
And the Pastors are afraid to preach the
Truth, in Fear that they will lose their
position In the
Church, or lose what followers they
do have!! So they tickle everyone’s
ears and preach what
The Congregation wants to hear instead of
what they need to hear THE PURE WORD
They’ll say Well that preacher preached
Me today and I don’t think I’m going
Back Anymore, He don’t like me anyway!!!!!
If you hear the truth and then run then you
Must be working for Satan!!!
And there are so many beautiful churches
and They only have one church service
per week – just long enough to pass the
offering plate and they give God 20 or 30
minutes to give everyone a blessing!!!!!
Excuse Me!!!!! It don’t work like that
It’s Like – OK God we’ve sung a couple of
And its almost noon so you gotta hurry
We are going out to eat hurry!!!!!!!!
I sure don’t believe it like that
We need to give God time….
Our blessings are gonna come in his
time not ours
And besides we will give God time
Anyway Whether its here in church or
in a hospital bed
Or maybe even something worse!!!!!
Then We have to beware of False Teachers
MATTHEW 24;11 SAYS:
And many false prophets shall rise, and
Shall deceive many!!!!!
We have false prophets and teachers
Worldwide They are giving people
prophecies and hoping
For 75% come true’s
If God really gives you a prophecy
about something You won’t have
To hope for a 75% come true margin
If its really from God all of it will come
True I heard a story about a Pastor –
To him and said Pastor God told me
to preach for You today – The Pastor
said well that’s funny
God told me to Preach today too!!!!!
Do you understand what I’m telling
You They’re EveryWhere!!!!!
2nd PETER CHAP 2; 1&2 SAYS
but there were false prophets also
among the people,
even as there shall be false teachers
who privily shall bring in damnable
and many shall follow their pernicious
ways by reason of whom the way
of truth shall be
evil spoken of!!!!
I have a greater fear of God than that!!
Another thing to Beware of is Temptation!
Be ready because satan will be there waiting
