Today we are looking at THE CERTAINTY of the soon return of our LORD Jesus Christ. Now this is one of the most important scriptures of the entire Bible covering one of the most important topics. There are ominous signs all around us of the end times!
Now my Bible teacher Adrian Rogers used to say things are getting gloriously dark! And what he meant was that as the world gets darker and darker the saints only get brighter and brighter! So if Jesus Christ is coming, and He is, and if He’s coming soon and He is; what does that mean to me and you?
Well Paul told Titus that this is The Blessed Hope! And what this lost and fallen world needs to know is that there IS hope! Now for some people, there is no hope and for other people they have a false hope and many people with hope cling to false hopes.
So in this message we are looking at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ knowing that it is a certainty, AND a blessed hope:
Jesus is coming again. And He may come soon in fact even before we finish this message!
Now, this Biblical hope is simply faith of the future tense.
It's when we know that we know that we know that, we will see Him VERY SOON with our very own eyes!
Now, if that's true, and it is true; then how should we be living in these last days?
Well in this message we'll look at 6 life changing qualities of this blessed hope and what they will do for you and me as believers!
We'll see that this blessed hope is:
A purifying hope.
An encouraging hope.
A unifying hope.
A challenging hope.
A stabilizing hope. And...
A comforting hope!
I hated that job. I hated every job I ever had. I woke up swearing every morning. I swore in the shower and I muttered profanity under my breath all the way to work. I felt useless because the work I was doing had no meaning. I wasn't drawing on my talents. I wasn't making the world a better pYou don't need courage to take that first step. And I felt trapped because the pay I earned was barely enough to live on, and I didn't have any savings.
vowed to make a living by doing what I loved -- or starve to death trying. And I meant it in every fiber of my being.
You don't need courage to take that first step. You just need to focus on two things: hate and desperation.
What did I do? I drew on everything I learned in my 20+ years of martial arts training. It was the only other thing I could consider myself a legitimate "expert" in. I drove over to Future Shop and bought a mini-DV video camera and some editing software with my credit card. Then I sat down with a paper and pencil and wrote a list of every crazy push up variation I could think of. I got on the floor and made up a bunch of new ones too.
you need two things: 1) Hate: you have to hate where you are right now so much that staying the same is far worse than the discomfort it'll take you to change. 2) Desperation: sometimes you have to back yourself into a corner so you're forced to come up with creative solutions.
People who should listen to this show are entrepreneurs, career coaches
When I am bothered by my own mistakes, I have to take a moment to reflect on my past experiences, in order to remember that I have come a long way in this life and I am constantly growing to become a better person. I have discovered that I am filled with various emotions and there is a trigger some place that causes those emotions to rise up within me. What is that trigger?
I choose to call that trigger "cause", so that we can get to the bottom of our daily emotion. Let us give the word a short name in this program. Let's call it "C". I hope that you will join me daily as we explore the "C" of our emotions. We will examine the "C" (cause) of our anger, the "C" of our resentment, the "C" of our lust, the "C" of our convictions, the "C" of our rebellion and mqany othe "C"s.
Bring with you an open mind, but please don't bring profanity of loud/ angry vocal ranges, as you may force me to mute your very important message y shutting off the volume on your microphone. I really do want to hear every one's point of view.
Let me say right now, that I am a believer of the almighty God and I wear the position of an evangelist. What this means is, you may hear me relate to you by the means of Biblical writings. I will, however, keep it real. So let's get going with the "C" of this emotion.
