Welcome to heaven! Chapter 3 ended the timeline of the church age, and immediately “after this” we are in the presence of our Lord! Join us for an in-depth study as to why we believe in a pre-tribulation rapture. See the first sights, hear the first sounds, and become a tour guide for the believer’s eternal home.
Revelation is not a hard book to understand. Learn why as we read the Lord’s outline in Revelation 1:19. Study the various views of eschatology, searching the Scriptures, being washed in the Word. Grow with great measure in your understanding of Jesus.
What are people saying about prophecy today? In a time when some of the church is trending away from Biblical prophecy, we look to Jesus to learn His wisdom on the matter. In our study through 2 Peter 3, we consider the fact that a quarter of the Bible speaks on prophecy. Do not be duped by man’s wisdom; the Lord’s Judgment is to come. Learn the saving grace and faithful love of the Lord Jesus Christ, and His return.
As we continue our study through 2 Peter, recall the importance of searching the Scriptures for truth. It is not about what man says, but rather what the Lord says in His Word, the Bible. In this way, we learn to recognize and stay clear of deceiving doctrines, heresies. Focus on the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, running as far away from the line of worldliness, unto a steady walk with Jesus.
In this study we looked at the answer to the question: what would we do if we had seven days left to live? We saw from 1 Peter 4:7-11 that we are called to do five things in light of the fact that we are living in the last days: Pray seriously, love fervently, demonstrate hospitality, serve effectively, and communicate Scripturally. We are encouraged as Christians to redeem the short time we have on this earth, knowing that the days we live in are evil (Ephesians 5:15-16).
For this year’s Prophecy Update we took an in-depth look at what is happening globally in connection with Bible prophecy, specifically related to the End Times. The study encompassed four main sections, starting with a look at Israel and why it is so important and central to Bible prophecy. The study continued by looking at prophecies of Israel related to Syria, Egypt, and Gaza. We closed out looking at an obscure prophecy from Isaiah 9:10 and a look at our nation and the pride that we are called to repent from. The night closed with an exhortation from Hebrews 12:5-15 that reminded us that God disciplines those whom He loves.
We have also created a PDF of the slides for the presentation for your use in taking notes and study:
Tonight we looked at the first 6 verses of Hebrews 11. We saw the often overlooked truth that in verse 3 we are the first people mentioned in the Hall of Faith as we believe that God spoke the worlds into existence.
Then we looked at the examples of faith in Abel and Enoch. We saw that Abel offered a more pleasing sacrifice to God, a sacrifice that followed God’s word. Then we examined Enoch and his testimony that he walked with God and pleased God.
We were challenged by Pastor Brett to be a people that desire to bring God pleasure with the whole of our lives (Revelation 4:11).
This evening, we finish our study of Paul’s letter to Titus. Paul ends his letter by discussing how a Christian should behave with respect to authority and government, as long as the authority isn’t going against the Word of God. We are also reminded to continue to look for Christ’s return.
As we wrap up our study through Paul’s second letter to the church at Thessalonica, we learn about the importance of avoiding bitterness. We also continue to learn about end times, predestination and salvation.
Tonight, we wrap up 1 Thessalonians and continue our study of end times. Pastor Brett speaks on why the rapture needs to happen, and he discusses the 22 commandments we see in 1 Thessalonians 5.
