    Can You Trust The Bible? (2nd in series)
    2 Timothy 3:16
     
    I. The Bible’s Divine Inspiration
     
    “All scripture is inspired by God (breathed out by God) and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness.” ~ 11 Timothy 3:16 (NASV)
     
    II. The Eyewitness To The Resurrection
     
    “For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; Instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.” ~ 2 Peter 1:16 (NASV)
     
    "For I pass on to you as most important what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of them are still alive, but some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one born at the wrong time, he also appeared unto me.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15: 3-8 (NASV)

    Can You Trust The Bible?
    Psalm 19:1 - 8
    Series: The Misunderstandings of Bible 101
     
    I. Jesus Taught That Scripture Is The Word Of God

    “You are mistaken, because you do not know the Scripture or the power of God…now concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven’t you read what was spoken to you by God: I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and The God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living.” ~Matthew 22: 29 – 31 (NASV)
     
    II. Jesus Taught Scripture Contains True History
     
    Noah – in Matthew 24:37 “the immorality of the days of Noah would be happening again before Jesus returns.” – JESUS CONFIRMING THE TRUTH OF THE STORY OF NOAH
     
    Abraham – in John 8:56 “Abraham saw Jesus and rejoiced over the time when He would come”.
    JESUS CONFIRMING THE TRUTH OF ABRAHAM AND ALL THE PROMISES MADE TO ABRAHAM
     
    Moses – in John 5:45 “If you had believed Moses you would believe me, because He wrote of me”
    JESUS CONFIRMING THE TRUTH OF MOSES AND ALL WE ARE TOLD ABOUT HIM
     
    III. Jesus Taught Scripture Is His Story
     
    Jesus said, “……all scripture is about me.” ~ John 5:39 (NASV)
     
    “How foolish and slow you are to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Wasn’t it necessary for the Messiah to suffer these things and enter into his glory? The beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted for them the things concerning himself in all the Scriptures.” ~ Luke 24: 25 -27 (NASV)
  • Aug 30, 2020Jesus Predicting What Will Happen In The Future

    Jesus Predicting What Will Happen In The Future
    Mark 13:26-27
     
    VS 26 “ At that same time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.
    Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near, right at the door. I tell You the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, not the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It is like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned talk, and tells the one at the door to keep watch. Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back – whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he come suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: Watch!” ~ Mark 13:26-37
     
    I. The Lesson of The Fig Tree
     
    Vs 28 “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.”

    Vs 30 “This generation shall not pass away until all these things have happened”
     
    III. Only God Knows When He Returns
     
    Vs 32 “No one knows about that date or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”
     
    Matthew 24:44 “So, you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
     
    IV. Remain Alert
     
    Vs 31, 33 “ Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away….be on guard! Be
    Alert!”
     
    Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of God stands forever.”
    “They were looking intently up into the sky when two angels appeared and spoke to them. Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” ~ Acts 1: 10-11

    Future Events According To Scripture
    Mark 13:14-27
     
    “When you see the abomination that causes desolation standing where it does not belong – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down or enter the house to take anything out. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women And nursing mothers! Pray that this will not take place in the winter, because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now – and never to be equaled again. If the Lord had not cut shore those days, no one would have survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them. At that time if anyone says to you, LOOK, THERE IS THE CHRIST OR LOOK THERE HE IS, DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform sings and wonders and will deceive the elect. SO BE ON YOUR GUARD; I HAVE TOLD YOU EVERYTHING AHEAD OF TIME. But in those days, following that distress, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.” ~ Mark 13:14-27 (NASV)
     
    “I have made known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still To come. I say: My purpose will stand and I will do all that I please” ~ Isaiah 46 (NASV)
     
    I. After The Rapture Global Chaos
     
    “Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth.” ~ Revelation 3:10 NASV
     
    II. A Global Leader Will Have His Headquarters In Jerusalem In The Temple
     
    III. Jesus Returns To Earth To Defeat Evil And Set Up His Kingdom
     
    vs 26 “At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory”
     
    “I saw heaven standing open and therebefore me was a white horse, whose rider is called faithful and true…His eyes were like blazing fire on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself…His eyes are like blazing fire, And on his head many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself… Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations….On his robe and on his thigh He has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS" ~ Revelation 19:11-16 (NASV)

    Do Not Fear The Future
    Mark 13: 3-13
    “Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked Jesus when shall the end come? When will things begin to happen? Jesus said to them, Watch that no one deceives you. Many will come in my name, claiming I am her and will deceive many. When you hear of wars and rumor of wars do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nations will rise against nations and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.
     
    You must be on your guard…..the gospel must be preached unto all the nations. Whenever you are arrested and brought to trail, do not worry before hand about what to say…..children will rebel against their parents and have their parents put to death. Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.” ~ Mark 13: 3-13 NASV
     
    I. The Temple Will be Destroyed

    How Could A Good God Allow So Much Suffering?
    John 16:33
     
    I. God Tells Us There Will Be Suffering
    '
    'These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation.'' ~ John 16:33

    The famous atheist, Richard Dawkins, said this: ''The universe we observe has no design, no purpose, no
    evil, and no good - nothing but blind, pitiless indifference. DNA neither knows nor cares; DNA just is, and we dance to its music.''
     
    ''Well, if God were really God, then He would do away with evil.''
    God is going to do away with evil.
    Just because He hasn't done away with evil yet, and evil brings pain and suffering, obviously; so, just because He hasn't done it yet, doesn't mean He's not going to do it.
    You know, when Job had the big problem with God because of all the suffering that came on him,
    he began to ask questions of God.
    He never sinned with his mouth.
    He didn't ascribe unseemliness to God.
    He didn't curse God as the devil said he would do. The devil said, ''God, You do this to him, he'll curse You to Your face.''
    Well, Job never did that.
    He came to God with all these questions, and the LORD didn't answer him for many, many chapters.
    Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, 'Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Now gird up your loins like a man, and I will ask you, and you will instruct Me!
    Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.
    Who set its measurements?
    Or who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
    Where were you, Mr. Job, thinking you are entitled
    to so many things?''
     
    II. God Has A Plan For Our Lives
     
    HE GIVETH MORE GRACE
    ''He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
    He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
    To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
    To multiplied trials His multiplied peace.
    When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
    When our strength has failed, 'ere the day is half done.
    When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
    Our Father's full giving is only begun.
    His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
    His power has no boundary known unto men.
    For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
    He giveth and giveth and giveth again.''
