Summary: Know where you are and where you are going
THE RIGHT VIEW POINT
ISA.56; 8The Lord GOD, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
9All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest
1. From a moral stand-point
2nd Tim.3: 1This 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, 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.
The increase of crime
The inroads of communism
The ignoring of crooks
The intoxication of the crowds
2. From a religious stand-point
Rev. 3; 14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
3.From an individual’s stand-point
Church member but no walk of purity
Claim to be a Christian no witnessing power
Christ is not Lord of all yours plans.
3. From the political stand—point
2Peter2: 1But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
Filthy rich, pretend sympathy for the poor
Fighting for the enemy instead of his people
Freedom for all no longer precious
4. From the Christian stand—point
Phil.1: 21For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
22But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.
Love Christ with all your heart
Loyal to your country in every way you can be
Living in a way that will keep your friends out of hell
5.From Gods stand –point
Phil.3; 20For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
21Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
Saved will be called out and rewarded
The sinner will be cast into outer darkness
Satan will be chained and punished for ever
7. From the sinners stand—point
John 3. 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
You are already condemned
You can now be forgiven and saved
What you do with Christ will determine forever your state
