Consider This!

  • Israel became a nation again on 14 May 1948 (Isa 66:7-9; Ezek 37:15-28; Amos 9:14-15; Zech 8:7-8), and is bearing fruit again (Isa 27:6)
  • Since 1948, there have been :
    • Many “false messiahs” (Matt 24:5) - e.g., Sun Myung Moon (The Unification Church), L. Ron Hubbard (Scientology), David “Moses” Berg (Children of God), Maharaj Ji(Divine Light Mission), Jim Jones (The Peoples’ Temple), Lord Maitreya (New Age Movement), David Koresh (The Branch Davidians), Tony Alamo (Alamo Christian Foundation), etc.
    • Increased numbers of “wars, rumors of wars & nations against nations” (Matt 24:6-7; Luke 21:9-10) - China/Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, Middle-East, Falklands, Central America Drug Wars, Africa, Afghanistan, USSR break-up, Iran/Iraq, Grenada, Iraq (1/2), Philippines, PLO/Israel, Arab League/Israel, Global Radical Muslim terrorism
    • “Famines” (Ethiopia, many countries in Africa, India, Bangladesh, war-torn countries around world, & in USA, 57 million die annually due to starvation); & “Earthquakes” (Armenia, Alaska, California, China, India, Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Haiti, Chile & related Tsunamis) – (Matt 24:7; Luke 21:11)
  • Approximately 99% of the nations on the earth have heard the Gospel (Joshua Project 2007)
  • The Bible has been translated into approx. 96% of the world’s languages, with a goal of 100% by 2025 (Wycliffe, 2006)
foundational devotion
Foundational Devotion
  • Philippians 1:6 – God began the Perfect Complete Gospel work in Christians at Salvation/Justification (Jesus’ 1st Coming), is continuing the Sanctification processin their lives, & will complete the work at Glorification/Rapture (Jesus’ 2nd Coming/Parousia)
  • Titus 2:11-13– This is the “Blessed Hope” for the Church/Body of Christ
  • The Perfect Complete Gospel is primarily confirmed by: Eph 1:4-14; Rom 8:22-25; 1 Cor 15; 1 Pet 1:3-5 and 1 John 3:2, and by
  • The Parable of the Wheat and Tares (Weeds) in Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
foundational devotion cont and in light of
Foundational Devotion (cont.)And In light of;
  • Daniel 12:4 - In the End-times, knowledge will increase
  • Matthew 24:4; Mark 13:5; Luke 21:8 – Watch, be prepared, AND donot bedeceived
  • Luke 21:28-31– “When these things begin to take place . . . Your redemption is drawing near . . . the kingdom of God is near.” – Just like the Fig Tree (Fig Tree Generation v. 32)
  • Therefore;
  • 2 Tim 2:15– “Earnestly Study” to show yourself approved to God as a workman able to “rightly divide the Word of Truth” (especially in the times in which we live & in light of 1 Tim 4:1-2, 7 & 2 Tim 4:3-4, regarding “deceptive spirits, doctrines of demons, myths, & old wives’ tales;” which amounts to false doctrine/heresy)

Let us pray!

Biblical– From the Bible (both Old & New Testament, primarily apocalyptic genres)

Eschatology – from “eschatos,” meaning “the extreme, most remote spoken of place and time, the last”—described by 1 Cor 15:24, “. . . then comes, the end, when He delivers up the kingdom to the God and Father . . .”; and from lego or “logos” in Greek, meaning, “to relate in words or something said (including the thought and idea)”; by implication, a topic, subject or discourse:

Study of the End-Times/Last Days Surrounding the Parousia/Second Coming of Jesus Christ
