WHAT DOES IT MEAN

TO BE WORTHY?

NBCOG 08/29/2010 AM

TEXT

LUKE 21:36

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

INTRODUCTION

*THE BACKGROUND OF THE TEXT IS THE TIME OF TRIBULATION.

*IT IS KNOWN AS THE WRATH OF GOD

AND OF THE LAMB.

*THE TIME OF JACOB’S TROUBLE.

*THE TIME OF GREAT TRIBULATION.

*JESUS SAYS THAT IT IS A TIME SUCH AS HAS NEVER BEEN NOR EVER WILL BE.

*HE CONCLUDES THE OLIVET DISCOURSE BY SAYING, “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”

*SO, THE WAY TO ESCAPE IT IS TO BE ACCOUNTED AS WORTHY.

*I WANT TO ADDRESS TWO QUESTIONS.

1. WHAT ARE WE ESCAPING?

2. WHAT MAKES US WORTHY?

PRAYER

I. WHAT ARE WE ESCAPING?

1. IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH,

THE TIME OF TRIBULATION BEGINS.

2. IT IS A TIME OF WAR.

3. IT IS THE TIME OF THE RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST

AND AN ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT.

4. THERE WILL BE A FAMINE SUCH AS THE WORLD HAS NEVER SEEN.

5. THERE WILL BE ECONOMIC DISTRESS WORSE THAN THAT OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION.

6. FRESH WATER AND SALT WATER WILL BE TURNED TO BLOOD.

7. ALL OF THE ISLANDS WILL FALL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEAS.

8. THE MOUNTAINS OF THE EARTH WILL BE LEVELED.

9. HAIL MINGLED WITH BLOOD AND FIRE WILL FALL UPON THE WHOLE EARTH.

10. HAIL STONES AS LARGE AS 120 POUNDS EACH WILL PELLET THE EARTH.

11. THE GREEN GRASS AND TREES WILL BE BURNED AND SMOKE WILL FILL THE ATMOSPHERE

AND PURE OXYGEN WILL BE COMPROMISED.

OF COURSE LIVESTOCK WILL DIE.

12. THE SUN AND THE MOON TURN TO BLOOD AND THEY GO DARK AS SACKCLOTH.

13. SCORPION CREATURES FROM HELL ARE LOOSED FROM THE SMOKEY, BOTTOMLESS ABYSS AND ARE ABLE TO STING MEN

AND WOMEN.

14. THEY WILL SEEK DEATH AND THEY SHALL NOT FIND IT FOR IT SHALL FLEE FROM THEM FOR 5 MONTHS.

15. DURING THIS TIME YOU CANNOT BUY NOR SALE UNLESS YOU HAVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST

AND WORSHIP HIS IMAGE.

16. AND FOR THOSE WHO DO THIS,

THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR SOUL TO THE DEVIL AND CANNOT BE SAVED.

17. THOSE WHO HAVE RECEIVED THE MARK OF THE BEAST WILL HAVE A NOISOME, GRUESOME SORE THAT RAVAGES THEIR BODY.

18. THEY WILL BE DELIRIOUS WITH A RAGING FEVER.

19. THE SORE WILL SMELL AND OOZE PUSS AS THE INFECTION CONSUMES THE BODY

AND THERE IS NO CURE.

20. THE MUSLIMS WILL MARCH FORTH DESTROYING ALL WHO DO NOT PAY OBEISANCE TO THE ANTICHRIST.

21. EARTHQUAKES ALL OVER THE WORLD CAUSING PARTS OF CITIES TO FALL

AND THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS TO DIE.

22. THE SUN WILL SCORCH MEN WITH FIRE.

23. THEY WILL BE SEARED WITH INTENSE HEAT AND BURN THE FLESH OFF OF MEN.

24. AND THERE’S MORE BUT, I DON’T HAVE TIME TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT.

25. AND I KNOW SOME SAY, “WELL, ALL OF THOSE THINGS WILL ONLY HAPPEN IN THE MIDDLE EAST“.

26. THAT IS NOT SO.

27. JESUS SAID, LUKE 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

28. HE USES THE WORDS “ALL” AND “WHOLE” TO WARN US THAT AMERICA WILL FACE THESE SAME JUDGMENTS AS THE REST OF THE WORLD WILL FACE.
