Dying Hope

Sermon - Dying Hope

Now I know that you may not want to talk or think about death today. One of the things that all people have in common is that we don’t like to think about death. Death is usually the last thing we want to talk about. And yet, life being what it is, we can’t walk away from it. This message tackles the subject of death, but only in the context of our Christian hope. Seeing how Christ has transformed death for believers, and knowing that the next “stop” on God’s prophetic calendar is a reunion in the sky with Christ and with those who have died in the Lord, that is comfort!

Scripture reference: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Here Comes the Groom

Sermon - Here Comes the Groom - photo credits Brenton Little, creationswap

Throughout the New Testament, the Bible describes the relationship of the church with Christ by using the analogy of a bride and groom. This bride-groom relationship plays itself from the beginning to the end of the New Testament, prophetically as well. Identifying the stages of the ancient Jewish wedding can enhance our understanding of prophecy and our own role in it. We are all familiar with the phrase, “Here comes the bride,” but the New Testament emphasis is “Here comes the groom!”

Scripture reference: John 14:1-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

Keep Your Eye On The Sky

by
Wooden cross on Bible with note that says “I’ve gone to prepare a place for you. Be back soon.” Love, Jesus.

What difference would it make if you woke each morning with the daily expectation of Jesus’s return — His coming for His bride the Church, the Rapture? What difference would it make if you made a conscious effort every day to lift your eyes to the sky and seriously ask, “Will this be the day?” It would keep you consciously living in light of eternity, living on the edge of this world and what’s coming. It would lead you to live expectantly!

Scripture reference: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
