THE URGENCY OF THE LAST HOUR

11/2/2006

Matt 26:40-41

40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

KJV

*** The bible has 66 books and one third is prophetic books.

*** The return of Jesus Christ is the 2nd most important theme of the New Testament. The only other subject mentioned more is redemption.

*** His return is mentioned 318 times, all nine authors speak of it, 23 of 27 books in the N.T.

*** Paul went to Thessalonica and he only stayed there 3 weeks, in that time he wrote 6 times about His return in 5 chapters to that new church.

*** Paul wrote 13 letters in the N.T. Communion 2, baptism 13 times, 50 times on the 2nd coming.

*** At the inception of the church, the day of Pentecost, from that day when you are baptized in the name of Jesus you became part of the bride of Christ, God called you His church, from that day He has been looking forward to coming back for you.

*** He said when you see the church at ease, banqueting and partying, and then shall it come.

*** AND there is prophecy all through the bible of apostate Christendom

Matt 24:32-33

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
