Summary: What an exciting day to be alive. Opportunities around us abound. The darker the night the greater the light. Beware of the undermining of the truth and our faith. Watchman what of the night?

This is an exciting day to be alive. We have great opportunities to LET OUR LIGHT SO SHINE...
ARISE, MY LOVE --- JESUS HAS HIS WHITE HORSE SADDLED....
SPIRITUAL EROSION WILL UNDERMIND THE TRUTH AND THE CHURCH.
Erosion is a slow gradual destruction. This erosion will slowly wear away the very foundations
on which Jesus has built HIS CHURCH... BEWARE OF THIS UNDERMINING OF TRUTH.
Be faithful and pray and study your Bible as never before.
Isaiah 21:11 The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night?
Watchman, what of the night?
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your
redemption draweth nigh.
I. We near UNKNOWN SHORES IN THE CHURCH...
A. History quietly records some very special times that the world seems to miss.
B. 1948 was one of those times with the re-establishment of the nation of Israel, the invention
of a new type of fuel that today I will simply call "ROCKET FUEL."
The power given to the World League of Nations... (THE U.N. United Nations)
C. June, 2015 INTRODUCED A NEW STEPPING STONE in history.
The Supreme Court approved OBAMA CARE, The release of the RAINBOW COVENANT
that SHAKES THE VERY FOUNDATION of the family and our society.
The VATICAN officially recognizes the PALESTINIAN STATE... against Israel.
II. IN THE CHURCH THERE ARE THREE GREAT SIGNS THAT WILL USHER IN THE SWIFT MOVEMENT
OF THE SECOND COMING...
1. THE POURING OUT OF GOD'S SPIRIT
Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons
and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
2. THE DAY OF OFFENCE,
To cause a person or group to feel hurt, angry or upset by something said or done.
HATE THE MESSAGE, HATE THE MESSENGER..
Matthew 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
3. THE MASSIVE EXODUS FROM THE TRUTH AND THE CHURCH...
THE FALLING AWAY.
2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there
come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
III. THERE IS A SPIRUTAL SLEEP THAT WILL DOMANATE THE WHOLE SOCIETY...
A. At one time we called CHINA THE SLEEPING GIANT...
Today a spirit of sleep comes over the nations and the church.
Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not
warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his
blood will I require at the watchman's hand. 7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the
house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
B. SLEEPING SAINTS PAY DEARLY.
1. SAMSON: got his hair cut while sleeping in the lap of sin. Sleeping saints.
2. SISERA: The mighty victorious general killed by JAEL --- a glass of milk and a tent stake to
the head. SLEEPING?
3. KING SAUL: The first King of Israel was caught more than once SPIRITUALLY SLEEPING.
a. David cut a piece of his garment off (His covering, Divine protection)
b. Lost Cruise of water (His essentials)
c. David picked up Saul's SWORD ( Power, word)
4. EUTYCHUS: Paul was preaching a "THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL" when a sleeping saint
fell out of the window. How many die spiritual sleeping/missing the message.
IV. WHO CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE.
THEN THEY WORSHIP THE CREATURE MORE THAN THE CREATOR.
Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the
uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and
creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts,
to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use
into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman,
burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in
themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God
