One Thousand Years of Heaven On Earth
Series: ISIS
Revelation 20: 1-15
Basically three views held by believers
1. Amillennial
Those who hold this view do not believe what I am preaching this morning from the Word of God will happen.
 2. Postmillennial
Those who hold this view believe that God working with humanity will establish a Golden Age on earth. Humanity will have finally attained our potential
3. Premillennial
This is the view I hold – Jesus is going to come as prophesied in Chp 19. At the battle of Armageddon which is the last war of Tribulation Period.
Revelation 20:1-3
“I saw an Angel descending out of heaven. He carried the key to the Abyss and a chain – a huge chain. He grabbed the Dragon, that old Snake- the very Devil, Satan himself! – chained him up for a thousand years, dumped him into the Abyss, slammed it shut and sealed it tight. No more trouble out of him, deceiving the nations – until the thousand years are up. After that he has to be let loose briefly.”
Vs 10 “The Devil, who deceived them will be hurled into Lake Fire and Brimstone, joining the Beast and the False Prophet, the three in torment around the clock for ages without end.”
  1. The Reality Of Millennial Kingdom On Earth
Matthew 24:3 “What will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the world?”
Matthew 24: 4-5 Jesus said, “Watch out for doomsday deceivers. Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities, claiming, I am the Christ, the Messiah. They will deceive a lot of people. When reports come in of wars and rumored wars, keep your head and don’t panic. This is routine history; this is no sign of the end. Nation will fight nation and ruler fight ruler, over and over. Famines and earthquakes will occur in various places. This is nothing compared to what is coming.”
 
2 Timothy 3: 13 “Unscrupulous con men will continue to exploit the faith. They’re as deceived as the people they lead astray. As long as they are out there, things can only get worse.”
Dragon- means fierceness.
Snake- sneaky, slimy, tries to hid actions
Devil – means slanderer or one who speaks against others
Satan – means the evil one
Philippians 2:6-7 “Jesus being in the form of God, didn’t think it robbery to be equal with God, but made himself of no reputation and humbled himself and became as a servant”
 
Jesus said, “I give you authority over all the power of the devil of the wicked one”
        That is not for future events
        That is now – TODAY
 
                11. The Reign of Christ During The One Thousand Years
“When the thousand years are up, Satan will be let loose from his cell, and will launch again his old work of deceiving the nations, searching out victims in every nook and cranny of the earth, even Gog and Magog! He will talk them into going to war and will gather a huge army, millions strong. They will stream across the earth, surround and lay siege to the camp of God’s holy people, the Beloved City. They will no sooner get there than fire will pour out of heaven and burn them up. The Devil who deceived them will be hurled into Lake of Fire and Brimstone, joining the Beast and the False Prophet, the three in torment around the clock for the ages without end.”
God will permit this brief revolution at the end of the thousand years to show only God can change the human heart.
        1,000 years of perfect society – perfect provision
        Perfect prosperity
        There will be those who still choose to follow Satan.

    Where Is The World Headed?
    Series: ISIS
    Revelation 6 THE NEXT THING ON GOD’S CALENDAR IS THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH Seal 1 False Leader of Peace Vs 2 White - means bloodless and a horse is a symbol of war “seventy sevens are set for your people and for your holy city to throttle rebellion, stop sin, wipe out crime, set things right forever, confirm what the prophet saw, and anoint the Holy of Holies.” - Daniel 9:24 77 years means 490 years “Here is what you must understand: From the time the word goes out to rebuild Jerusalem until the coming on the Anointed Leader (Jesus), there will be seven sevens. The rebuilding will take 62 sevens, including building streets and digging a moat. Those will be rough times” 434 years equals 62 sevens “The city and Sanctuary will be laid in ruins by the army of the newly arriving leader. The end will come in a rush, like a flood. War will wage right up to the end, desolation the order of the day.” “Then for one seven, (Antichrist) will forge many and strong alliances, but Halfway through the seven (3 1/2 years) he will banish worship and prayers.” Vs 27 last part of the verse “At the place of worship, a desecrating obscenity will be set up and remain until finally the desecrator himself is decisively destroyed.” Gabriel said to Daniel 490 years Daniel and Gods plan for Israel will be complete 49 weeks until the issue is decreed for the Temple to be rebuilt 462 years from then until the Messiah is crucified (all history) 434 plus 49 = 483 of the 490 years has taken place That leaves 7 years Seal #2 Antichrists Policy for Destruction
    Revelation 6:3 “When the Lamb ripped off the second seal, I heard the second animal cry, Come out! Another horse appeared, this one red. Its rider was off to take peace from the earth, setting people at each other’s throats, killing one another. He was given a huge sword.”
    Huge - Greek word means a dagger Seal #3 Global Poverty 6:5 “When he ripped off the 3rd seal, I heard the 3rd animal cry Come out! A black horse this time. Its rider carried a set of scales in his hand.” Seal #4 World health crisis “When he ripped off the 4th seal, I heard the 4th animal cry, Come Out. I looked. A colorless horse, sickly pale. Its rider was Death, and Hell was close on its heels. They were given the power to destroy a 4th of the earth by war, famine, disease, and wild beasts.” Seal #5 Persecution of Believers “When he ripped off the 5th seal, I saw the souls of those killed because they had held firm in their witness to the Word of God. They were gathered under the Altar, and cried out in loud prayers, “How long, Strong God, Holy and True? How long before you step in and avenge our murders? Then each martyr was given a white robe and told to sit back and wait until the full number of martyrs was filled from among their servant companions and friends in the faith.” Seal #6 Global Panic Vs 12-17

    The Celebration of the Empty Tomb
    Series: (All)
    Hebrews 2:14-15 Aristotle called death the thing he feared the most because it appears to be the end of everything.   Jean-Paul Sartre (an extistentialiast, philoaopher) SAID death removed all meaning from life. John 20:1-4 “Early in the morning on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone was moved away from the entrance. She ran at once to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus love, breathlessly painting ‘they took the master from the tomb. We don’t know where they have put him.”   “Matthew records his account “there was an earthquake on Easter Sunday morning Prior earthquake on good Friday when Jesus died on the cross The earth shook WHEN GOD IS GETTING READY TO DO SOMETHING BIG THE EARTH DOES SHAKE WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS THE EARTH SHOOK WHEN JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD THE EARTH SHOOK WHEN YOUR WORLD BEGANS TO SHAKE GOD IS PREPARING TO DO SOMETHING IN YOUR LIFE   John 20:5-8 Peter and the other disciples left immediately for the tomb. They ran, neck and neck. The other disciple got to the tomb first, outrunning Peter. Stooping to look in, the saw the pieces of linen cloth lying there, by the didn’t go in. Smion Peter arrived after him, entered the tomb, observed the linen cloths lying there, and the kerchief used to cover his heard not lying with the linen clothes but separate, neatly folded by itself. The other disciples, the one who had gotten first, went into the tomb, took one look at the evidence, and believed.
    1.   Allow Jesus Christ To Get Your Outside Your Comfortable Zone
    FOUR LADIES COMING TO THE TOMB: They did not come to see an empty tomb They came to anoint the body because they knew for sure Jesus was dead
    They had forgotten he had said he would rise of the 3rd day
    Not just these woman all his followers had forgotten THEY DID NOT THINK FOR ONE MOMENT HE WOULD RISE AGAIN
    1stcentury woman had no rights – could not stand up in court
    Could not own peroperty, could not go out alone Yet God choose women to pronnounce and spread the good news THE MOST INDISPUTABLE FACT IN ALL OF HISTORY IS THIS GLORIOUS TRUTH JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND THE TOMB IS EMPTY.
    1. The Tomb Screams Out Forgiveness For All
    “FATHER FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING
    (LUKE 23:34)
    Greek verb here indicates he did not say it once – repeated over and over FATHER FORGIVE THEM FATHER FORGIVE THEM FATHER FORGIVE THEM FATHER FORGIVE THEM When the solider drove the spike into his side, FATHER FORGIVE THEM When they lifted him up to the sky, FATHER FORGIVE THEM When they walked by and insulted him, FATHER FORGIVE THEM
    1. The Tomb Proclaims Peace
    Recent Gallap Polls of Americans criteria for judging personal success
    1. 58% good health
    2. 49% enjoyable employment
    3. Happy family life
    4. Good education
    5. Peace of mind
    6. Good friends
    Was below # 10 on the list was materialistic factors such as unlimited money – luxury automobile – luxurious second home
    I found it interest of the top 5 qualities of a successful life one of those would be  peace of mind. 
    “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men,” ~ Luke 2:14 “I leave with you; my peace I give you.” ~John 14:27 Isaiah prophesied when Jesus came he would be called THE PRINCE OF PEACE I CHALLENGE YOU THIS WEEK Take a sheet of paper Write down that which disappoints you in your life Things you don’t have Things you want Things you feel you should have Take a second sheet and write down your blessings from God

    What Is Behind Orthodox Islam Followers Animosity?
    Series: ISIS
    Genesis 12:1-3 God has given Abraham and his descendants some real estate that will be theirs forever. (12:1)
    God has promised Abraham that he would be the father of a great nation whose descendants would be as innumerable as the stars in the sky or the sand on the sea shore(12:3)
    God has promised a blessing that one of Abraham’s descendants would be the Savior of the world who would remove the curse of sin and death a promise of the coming of the Messiah – the Christ.
    GOD SENT AN ANGEL TO HAGAR AND COMMANDED HER TO RETURN TO SARAH AND MAKE THE BEST OF A DIFFICULT SITUATION THE ANGEL ALSO GAVE HAGAR 2 PROMISES Genesis 16: 10 – 12 “ a bucking bronco of a man a real fighter, fighting and being fought, always stirring up trouble, always at odds with his family.” ISHMAEL’S DESCENDANTS ARE THE ARAB’S OF THE MIDDLE EAST ISSAC’S DESCENDANTS ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE ISRAEL IS THE PROMISED LAND Issac and his descendants – Ishmael and his descendants have been fighting For 4,000 years Romans 4: 19-21 “Without becoming weak in faith, he contemplated his own body, now as good as dead since he was about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb; yet, with respect to the promise of God, he did not waver in unbelief but grew strong in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.” Muslims believe – Quran teaches Abraham took Hagar and Ishmael to Meca and one of Ishmael’s descendants Was Muhammad. Muslim tradition takes the story of Abraham offering Isaac to God (Genesis 22) and substitutes Ishmael in the place of Isaac. Sunnis and Shiites do not agree on who should have Succeeded Muhammad after his death Sunnis say Abu Bakr, the prophet’s friend was the true successor Shiite say Ali bin Abu Talib – Muhammads son-in-law and cousin is true successor God promised Ishmael           “As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him, and will make    Him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall become the fathe Of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.”(Genesis 17:20) (Genesis 17:21“But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year.” The nation Israel and her land belong to the Jewish people who gave them the original deed Ezekiel 38:1-6 “And the world of the Lord came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face toward God of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, price of Rosh, Meshec and Tubal. I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords: Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Bethtogarmah from the remote parts of the north with all  its troops-many peoples with you…” God is talking about countries in the Middle East known today Turkey, Syria, Armenia, Azeraijan, Georgia, Iran, Ethiopia, and Libya. These nations according to the prophet Ezekiel are one day going to attack Israel 2 things will happen as a result of God intervening
    1. The world will know God has delivered Israel
    Ezekiel 39:22 “And I will set my glory among the nations: and all the nations will see my judgment which I have executed and my hand which I have laid on them.” 2. The Army from the East.  Two different times in Revelation we are told about a massive army coming from the East and moving into Israel. “The number of the armies of the horseman was 200 million” Revelation 9:16 “The 6th angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.” Revelation 16:12 Revelation 20:4 “Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for one thousand years.”

    Do Believers and Muslim Worship The Same God?
    Quran – Surah 5:72 teaches Muslims are so opposed to the belief Jesus is divine that it comdemns Jesus and his followers to hell. Allah of the Quran is not God of the Holy Bible Jesus Christ of the Quran is not Jesus Christ of the Holy
    Quran – Surah  5:18 Muslims are to tell Jews and Christians they are not followers of the Lord Jesus Christ
    Do not worship a generic God
    A god of all faiths – god of all religions – god of all beliefs Jews, Muslims, and Christians all believe in one God But not in the one true God Not the same God How Should We Get Along With Muslims in America? We should be and I assume we are courteous, kind, and gracious to People of all faiths, and that includes Muslims Matthew 2: 11 “They entered the house and saw the child in the arms of Mary, his mother. Overcome, they kneeled and worshipped him. Then they opened their luggage and presented gifts: gold, frankincense, myrrh.” Not all Muslims are Islamic terrorists Part of the problem we as believers have in America today “we cannot love the Muslims because we do not even love the Christians we already know” ~ Kevin Miller Next Sunday: Will Radical Islam Come To America?

    Series: (All)
    Luke 11:1 I. God Commands Us To Pray 1 Samuel 12:23 “Samuel said, ‘God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you.” Luke 18:1 “Always pray” Mark 14:38 Watch and pray” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing”
    The Bible says ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you
    ask - word actually means keep on
    II. Silence Sometimes Means God Is Permitting Circumstances To Make You Usable For His Purpose
    Romans 8:25-28 Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. The Holy Spirit does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That is why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God worked into something good.”

    How God Defines Love
    Series: (All)
    John 13:34-35 (The Message) Jesus told his disciples, “Love one another. In the same way I love you, you love one another. This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples – when they see the love you have for each other.”
    1. The Law of Love
    “If you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.” (Matthew 5:23-24) Jesus is saying RECONCILIATION MUST PRECEDE WORSHIP UNRESOVED CONFLICT HAS FIRST PRIORITY DIFFERENCES IN THE FAMILY MUST BE SETTLED FIRST TRUE WORSHIP IS NOT ENHANCED BY BETTER MUSIC NOT ENHANCED BY MORE ELOQUENT PRAYERS NOT ENHANCED BY BEAUTIFUL ARCHITECTURE NOT ENHANCED BY  BETTER PREACHING TRUE WORSHIP IS ENHANCED BY BETTER RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THOSE WHO COME TO WORSHIP Reconcile - denotes to change from enemy to friend
    1. God’s Love Guiding Our Behavior In Church
    “The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself” ~ Galatians 5:14-15 “Sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy, drunkenness, orgies, and the like” ~ Galatians 5: 19-21 Then he issues a powerful statement: “I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God” ~ Gal. 5:21 Galatians 5: 15-17 “If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.” Romans 14:4”Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.” “Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, love does not boast, love is not proud. Love is not rude, love is not self-seeking, love is not easily angered, love keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love always protects, love always trusts, love always hopes, love always perseveres. Love never fails.” Proverbs 10:12 “Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers all wrongs“If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over” ~ Matthew 18:15

    What Is The Church’s Place In The World Today?
    Series: (All)
    Matthew 16:13-18
    I. Jesus Is The Cornerstone and You Are Living Stones
    Jesus said, “You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church”
     not a building
    fellowship of people who have trusted Jesus as Savior Church – ecclesia – means a special group of people called out for God’s purpose. “I tell you that  you are Peter ( pebble) Greek word for small stone and upon this rock (petra –rocky mountain or peak) I will build my church.” 1 Corinthians 3:11 “For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ”
    “As you come to him, the living Stone, rejected by God but chosen by God and precious to him – you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house.” ~1 Peter 2:4-5
    II. The Church Should Be In The Attack Mode
    Hell- literal translation is Hades abode of the unrighteous dead before the final Great White Throne Judgment described in Revelation 20. Hades is a place of torment like hell Hades – literally means not to see. It is a place of utter darkness
    It is the underworld
    Gates of Hades would be death
    III. The Church Is To Share The Gospel
    “There are two basic reasons people do not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior:
    1. They have never met a Christian
    2. They have met a Christian
    11 Corinthians 5:14-15 “Christ love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.”

    I. Is Heaven A Real Place?
    Three heavens:
    Vs 6 talks about 1 st heaven – atmosphere
    Vs 14 talks about 2nd
    heaven – planetary atmosphere.
    11 Corinthians 12:2 “I know a man in Christ who 14 years ago was caught up to the third heaven” Third heaven is the place where God reigns on his throne John 14 “I am going to prepare a place for you” Place-means a locality or region –
    Acts 1:9  “After He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.”
    II. What Will Life Be Like in Heaven?
    Revelation 21:15-21 Revelation 21: 4”He will wipe every tear from their eyes” The city is going to be a perfect cube, 1500 miles wide, 1500 miles long, 1500 miles high. That is 2 billion and 7 hundred million cubic miles of space.
    That is 15 times more surface than the entire surface of this earth.
    III. Heaven Is Unlike Any Place In The Universe
    Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man goes to the Father, but through me”
    Jesus said, “I am going to prepare a place for you. Come and go with me.”
