Daniel’s Preview

“A period of seventy sets of seven has been decreed for your people and your holy city to finish their rebellion, to put an end to their sin, to atone for their guilt, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to confirm the prophetic vision, and to anoint the Most Holy Place.” Daniel 9:24 NLT

There is one prophecy that is foundational to understanding all the other prophecies regarding the End Times, particularly the ones in the New Testament. That prophecy is the preview given to Daniel, found in the ninth chapter of his book. There Daniel is given a timeline of God’s dealings with his people right up until the end. How it all works together is the subject of this message.

If you would prefer, the audio only version of this message can be found on our church channel at Sermon.net.

Sorry, there are no study notes for this message. However, I do encourage you to take notes on this important topic.

Having a clear grasp of what was shown to Daniel is vitally important, particularly to those of us who are living in the Reign.

Regardless What Happens

The Lord reigns!
The nations tremble.
He sits enthroned above the cherubim;
the earth shakes.
The Lord is elevated in Zion;
he is exalted over all the nations.
Let them praise your great and awesome name.
He is holy! Psalm 99:1 – 3 NET

Tomorrow is a big day in the United States as it’s citizens go to the polls to elect their next President. No one is certain what the outcome will be. However, regardless what happens tomorrow, for God’s people there will be certain fundamental things that will not change.

The Apostolic Response

What we have called the “End-Times” message is actually the message of the entire Bible. We have a vivid preview of coming attractions laid out for us in the Old Testament. Then Jesus continued the message through His identity, message and predictions. The question that remains is, how did the early church respond to this? Looking at the apostolic response is what this message is all about.

If you would prefer, and audio version can be found at Sermon.net.

A study sheet is also available.

The return of the King needs to be in the forefront of out thinking. How could it be otherwise if we have set our sights on living in the Reign?

Enjoy!

Then There is Jesus

The message of the end times did not begin with Jesus Christ. God has been declaring His intentions for His creation right from the beginning. In the First Testament, we have a brilliant preview of coming attractions, frequently in vivid detail. But then there is Jesus. How does He fit into all of this? By looking at His identity, His message, and His predictions, we see that He carries on the message begun in the Old Testament. I hope you find the message enlightening.

The audio version can be found at Sermon.net.

There is also a study sheet available to help you follow along.

Paying close attention to what Jesus says about the end times is critical, especially to those who are intent on living in the Reign.

Enjoy!

Preview of Coming Attractions

The various reactions you get when you announce that you are going to talk about the end times is nothing short of interesting. It can be anything from absolute terror to passive indifference.

I’m not sure which one is worse.

We get these varied reactions for a couple of reasons. For one, a lot of what we have been taught about the end of days is either misguided or flat-out wrong. For another, we have failed to see that the end times message is the story of God from the beginning right through to the end of the Book. God has never kept it a secret as to what He has been aiming for since He created the earth and man to inhabit it. We also find that the First Testament is a full-on preview of coming attractions that not only points to Christ’s first coming, but also to His second.

In this message, we go on a whirlwind tour that hits the highlights of what the Old Testament has to say about the end of days. I hope you enjoy it.

For those of you that would prefer the audio version, you can download it at Sermon.net.

Understanding the end times message is truly critical to anyone intent on living in the Reign.

Blessings!
