Summary: Jesus Christ offers encouragement in this verse to all believers in times of crisis.

Intro:

The attack on America by terrorists has cause a heightened degree of uncertainty and anxiety throughout

our world. During such times, we are to turn to the One

Source for hope: Jesus Christ our Lord.

In our text, Jesus speaks to our fears, uncertainties,

and anxieties....Let us examine:

I. His PROMISE (V.33)

A. "In the world you SHALL HAVE tribulation"

1. We have buried our head in the sand to long..

not only COULD IT HAPPEN IN AMERICA, IT HAS

AND MAY AGAIN! WE MUST WAKE UP TO THAT REALITY!

2. JESUS was realistic in this...troubled times

will come (see 2 Timothy 3:1 (quickview) , Matthew 24 (quickview) ).

B. "I have overcome the world"

1. This also is a promise...a certainty...

2. Read Revelation Ch’s 19-21 for yourself...JESUS

IS VICTORIOUS...AND ALL THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST

WILL SHARE THIS VICTORY!

3. "GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN THEE, THAN HE

THAT IS IN THE WORLD."

4. "CHRIST IN YOU, THE HOPE...."

5. "WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THRU HIM..."

II. HIS PEACE (V.33)

"I have spoken these things unto you that IN ME

you may have PEACE"

1. IT IS A PEACE THAT TRANSCENDS CIRCUMSTANCES

2. IT IS A PEACE THAT TRANSCENDS OPPRESSION

3 IT IS A PEACE THAT TRANSCENDS EVEN DEATH/TERROR.

PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7 (quickview) 

1. DONT WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING

2. PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING

3. THE PEACE OF GOD WHICH PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING

A. WILL GUARD YOUR HEARTS (AGAINST GIVING UP)

B. WILL GUARD YOUR MINDS (FROM GOING INSANE)

4. EVEN IN THE FACE OF DEATH, WE CAN CONFIDENTLY

SAY "THEY MAY KILL THE BODY, BUT THEY CAN’T KILL

MY SOUL..I AM ALIVE IN CHRIST...EITHER HERE OR

ON THE OTHER SIDE."

III. HIS PRESENCE

MATT 28:20 (quickview)  "LO, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS...EVEN TO THE

END OF THE AGE."

1. HE IS PRESENT WITH US ON DAYS LIKE 9-11-01

2. HE IS PRESENT WITH US WHEN WE ARE FEARFUL

3. HE IS PRESENT WITH US WHEN FACED WITH DANGER

4. HE WILL BE PRESENT WITH US IN DEATH AND IN

THE TRANSITION FROM THIS LIFE TO THE NEXT.

IV. OUR PREPARATION

ARE YOU SPIRITUALLY PREPARED FOR THE TROUBLE TIMES?

HAVE YOU INVITED JESUS INTO YOUR HEART?

ARE YOU SAVED?

HAD YOU BEEN ON ONE OF THOSE PLANES OR IN ONE OF

THOSE BUILDINGS, DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR SOUL WOULD

BE TODAY???

YOU CAN SETTLE THAT MATTER RIGHT NOW;;;

PRAY THE SINNER’S PRAYER...CONFESS SIN, CALL ON JESUS

FOR FORGIVENESS, TURN FROM SIN TO HIM FOR YOUR HOPE.

CONCLUSION: JESUS IS THE "PEACESPEAKER"....WE WILL

FACE TROUBLED DAYS AHEAD, BUT WE CAN DO IT WITH

CONFIDENCE, HOPE, AND ASSURANCE ("GOOD CHEER") KNOWING

THAT HE HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD AND THAT HE IS PRESENT

WITH US AT ALL TIMES.

GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE WORLD!
