  • IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW WHAT THE NEXT 24 HOURS

  • WILL LOOK LIKE IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:00:26.050 --> 00:00:28.120
  • LIFE IS CERTAINLY FULL OF SURPRISES, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:00:28.130 --> 00:00:31.110
  • BUT GRATEFULLY GOD HAS GIVEN US A SNEAK PREVIEW
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:34.260
  • OF THE FUTURE.
  • 00:00:34.270 --> 00:00:36.090
  • IN FACT, THE BIBLE CONTAINS REVEALING INFORMATION
  • 00:00:36.100 --> 00:00:39.240
  • ABOUT WHAT WE OFTEN CALL THE END TIMES
  • 00:00:39.250 --> 00:00:42.250
  • AND THERE'S A REASON FOR THAT.
  • 00:00:42.260 --> 00:00:44.210
  • TODAY WE'RE BEGINNING A RELEVANT SERIES
  • 00:00:44.220 --> 00:00:47.040
  • TITLED "PERFECT ENDING"
  • 00:00:47.050 --> 00:00:49.180
  • AND DURING THE NEXT HALF HOUR,
  • 00:00:49.190 --> 00:00:51.080
  • I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU WHY IT'S IMPORTANT FOR CHRISTIANS
  • 00:00:51.090 --> 00:00:54.190
  • TO BECOME STUDENTS OF BIBLICAL PROPHECY.
  • 00:00:54.200 --> 00:00:58.010
  • MY MESSAGE IS TITLED "WHY YOUR FUTURE MATTERS TODAY"
  • 00:00:58.020 --> 00:01:02.280
  • ON TODAY'S EDITION OF "PATHWAY TO VICTORY."
  • 00:01:02.290 --> 00:01:06.130
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:06.140 --> 00:01:14.220
  • [ANNOUNCER] WE MAY NOT KNOW THE DAY OR THE HOUR
  • 00:01:14.230 --> 00:01:16.230
  • WHEN CHRIST WILL RETURN,
  • 00:01:16.240 --> 00:01:18.110
  • BUT THE BIBLE PAINTS A COLORFUL PICTURE OF THE END TIMES.
  • 00:01:18.120 --> 00:01:21.290
  • DR. ROBERT JEFFRESS HAS WRITTEN THE BEST SELLING BOOK,
  • 00:01:22.000 --> 00:01:24.150
  • "PERFECT ENDING," TO HELP YOU BETTER UNDERSTAND
  • 00:01:24.160 --> 00:01:27.000
  • WHAT'S AHEAD.
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:28.170
  • CLEAR AND EASY TO READ, THIS BOOK EXPLAINS THE REALITIES
  • 00:01:28.180 --> 00:01:31.060
  • OF THE RAPTURE, THE TRIBULATION, THE SECOND COMING,
  • 00:01:31.070 --> 00:01:34.030
  • AND MORE; AND RELATES THOSE FUTURE EVENTS
  • 00:01:34.040 --> 00:01:36.250
  • TO OUR WORLD TODAY.
  • 00:01:36.260 --> 00:01:38.120
  • A COPY OF "PERFECT ENDING" IS YOURS
  • 00:01:38.130 --> 00:01:40.130
  • WHEN YOU GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT TO "PATHWAY TO VICTORY."
  • 00:01:40.140 --> 00:01:44.230
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:44.240 --> 00:01:52.040
  • PERHAPS YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE NOVEL "FUTILITY"
  • 00:01:52.050 --> 00:01:57.140
  • BY AUTHOR, MORGAN ROBERTSON.
  • 00:01:57.150 --> 00:02:00.130
  • THE BOOK TELLS THE STORY OF A MAGNIFICENT OCEAN LINER
  • 00:02:00.140 --> 00:02:04.070
  • NAMED THE TITAN THAT STRIKES AN ICEBERG
  • 00:02:04.080 --> 00:02:07.290
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ATLANTIC AND SINKS.
  • 00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:11.190
  • NOW YOU MAY THINK, "WELL THAT CERTAINLY SOUNDS LIKE
  • 00:02:11.200 --> 00:02:13.190
  • "THE REAL STORY OF THE TITANIC."
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:16.200
  • BUT THE NOVEL "FUTILITY" AND THE FICTIONAL SHIP TITAN
  • 00:02:16.210 --> 00:02:20.060
  • IS DIFFERENT FROM THE TITANIC IN SEVERAL WAYS.
  • 00:02:20.070 --> 00:02:23.110
  • THE TITAN, THE FICTIONAL BOOK, BOAT IS 1.800 FEET LONG
  • 00:02:23.120 --> 00:02:28.070
  • WHILE THE REAL TITANIC WAS 1.882 FEET LONG.
  • 00:02:28.080 --> 00:02:31.250
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHS)
  • 00:02:31.260 --> 00:02:33.160
  • THE TITAN WAS ABLE TO DISPLACE 66.000 TONS OF WATER
  • 00:02:33.170 --> 00:02:37.140
  • WHILE THE REAL TITANIC WAS ABLE TO DISPLAY 70.000 TONS
  • 00:02:37.150 --> 00:02:41.280
  • OF WATER.
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:43.140
  • AND YET, BOTH THE TITAN, THE FICTIONAL SHIP,
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:45.250
  • AND THE TITANIC WERE TRIPLE SCREW OCEAN LINERS,
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:49.080
  • THEY BOTH TRAVELED 25 KNOTS PER HOUR,
  • 00:02:49.090 --> 00:02:52.050
  • AND THEY BOTH CARRIED 3.000 PASSENGERS.
  • 00:02:52.060 --> 00:02:56.020
  • NOW YOU MAY WONDER, WHY DID MORGAN ROBERTSON
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:58.180
  • BOTHER TO WRITE A NOVEL THAT SO CLOSELY APPROXIMATED
  • 00:02:58.190 --> 00:03:01.260
  • THE REAL ACCOUNT OF THE TITANIC AND WHY WOULD HE GO
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:05.200
  • TO THE TROUBLE OF JUST CHANGING MINOR DETAILS,
  • 00:03:05.210 --> 00:03:08.240
  • INCLUDING THE NAME OF THE SHIP FROM TITANIC TO TITAN?
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:13.160
  • WHY DO THAT? THE ANSWER IS VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:03:13.170 --> 00:03:17.200
  • THE REAL SHIP, THE TITANIC, SUNK ON APRIL 14, 1912.
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:26.050
  • THE NOVEL "FUTILITY," ABOUT THE FICTIONAL SHIP THE TITAN,
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:30.140
  • WAS PUBLISHED IN 1898,
  • 00:03:30.150 --> 00:03:34.080
  • 14 YEARS BEFORE THE REAL EVENT OF THE TITANIC.
  • 00:03:34.090 --> 00:03:39.140
  • IT'S AMAZING TO THINK THAT A BOOK
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:43.000
  • COULD SO CLOSELY APPROXIMATE A REAL LIFE EVENT.
  • 00:03:43.010 --> 00:03:46.250
  • THAT A BOOK WRITTEN MORE THAN A DECADE EARLIER
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:49.160
  • COULD TELL WITH LASER-LIKE ACCURACY,
  • 00:03:49.170 --> 00:03:52.010
  • WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.
  • 00:03:52.020 --> 00:03:54.180
  • AND YET THE TRUTH IS, THE BIBLE IS FILLED WITH
  • 00:03:54.190 --> 00:03:57.160
  • HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF PROPHECIES ABOUT FUTURE EVENTS.
  • 00:03:57.170 --> 00:04:02.160
  • SOME OF THOSE EVENTS HAVE ALREADY COME TO PASS,
  • 00:04:02.170 --> 00:04:04.180
  • HUNDREDS OF THEM.
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:06.010
  • BUT THERE ARE MANY MORE THAT ARE YET TO COME.
  • 00:04:06.020 --> 00:04:09.100
  • YOU KNOW THE BIBLE IS A BOOK OF PROPHECY
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:13.010
  • AND YET EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF PROPHECIES
  • 00:04:13.020 --> 00:04:15.290
  • IN THE BIBLE ABOUT THE FUTURE EVENT
  • 00:04:16.000 --> 00:04:17.290
  • OF CHRIST'S SECOND COMING,
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:19.280
  • IT'S ALWAYS AMAZING TO ME HOW FEW CHRISTIANS
  • 00:04:19.290 --> 00:04:22.260
  • ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN THE TOPIC OF BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:04:22.270 --> 00:04:26.290
  • YOU MAY BE ONE OF THOSE CHRISTIANS.
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:29.030
  • YOU MAY BE ONE OF THOSE CHRISTIANS WHO YAWNS
  • 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:31.070
  • WHEN YOU HEAR ABOUT BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:32.280
  • YOU MAY BE A CHRISTIAN WHO REACHES FOR THE BOTTLE OF
  • 00:04:32.290 --> 00:04:35.230
  • TYLENOL WHENEVER YOUR "READ THROUGH
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:38.010
  • THE BIBLE IN A YEAR" PROGRAM LANDS YOU IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL.
  • 00:04:38.020 --> 00:04:41.060
  • YOU MAY BE ONE OF THOSE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:04:41.070 --> 00:04:42.150
  • WHO CONSIDERS CHANGING CHURCHES
  • 00:04:42.160 --> 00:04:44.190
  • WHEN YOUR PASTOR ANNOUNCES A YEAR LONG STUDY
  • 00:04:44.200 --> 00:04:47.040
  • IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:49.080
  • YOU MAY BE ONE OF THOSE CHRISTIANS WHO, QUITE FRANKLY,
  • 00:04:49.090 --> 00:04:52.030
  • WOULD BE A LOT MORE EXCITED
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:53.280
  • IF I WERE INTRODUCING A SERIES TODAY
  • 00:04:53.290 --> 00:04:56.070
  • ON "SEVEN SECRETS OF A SCINTILLATING MARRIAGE"
  • 00:04:56.080 --> 00:04:59.090
  • INSTEAD OF A SERIES ON THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:02.190
  • WHY IS THAT?
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:04.020
  • WHY IS IT MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE SUCH A DISDAIN
  • 00:05:04.030 --> 00:05:07.050
  • FOR THE STUDY OF PROPHECY?
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:09.030
  • BILLY GRAHAM SAID ONE TIME, "THE SECOND COMING
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:12.130
  • "OF JESUS CHRIST IS THE MOST NEGLECTED TEACHING
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:16.050
  • "IN THE CHURCH TODAY."
  • 00:05:16.060 --> 00:05:18.030
  • AND YET PAUL WROTE IN TITUS 2:13 THAT THE TRUTH
  • 00:05:18.040 --> 00:05:21.220
  • OF CHRIST'S COMING IS THE BLESSED HOPE FOR THE CHURCH.
  • 00:05:21.230 --> 00:05:26.110
  • YET IN SPITE OF THAT, MANY CHRISTIANS AREN'T INTERESTED
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:29.000
  • IN BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:05:29.010 --> 00:05:30.180
  • AS I'VE TALKED TO LAYMEN AND PASTORS ALIKE,
  • 00:05:30.190 --> 00:05:32.270
  • I'VE DISCOVERED THAT THERE ARE FOUR REASONS
  • 00:05:32.280 --> 00:05:35.020
  • THAT PEOPLE OBJECT TO THE STUDY OF BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:05:35.030 --> 00:05:37.120
  • I'D LIKE US TO LOOK AT THAT TODAY AS WE BEGIN THE SERIES
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:40.030
  • AND SEE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT EACH OF THOSE OBJECTIONS.
  • 00:05:40.040 --> 00:05:44.070
  • FIRST OF ALL, SOME PEOPLE ARE APATHETIC ABOUT BIBLE PROPHECY
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:48.070
  • BECAUSE THEY SAY, "WELL THE SUBJECT IS TOO CONFUSING
  • 00:05:48.080 --> 00:05:51.100
  • "TO UNDERSTAND."
  • 00:05:51.110 --> 00:05:53.050
  • YOU MAY BE ONE OF THOSE CHRISTIANS AS WELL.
  • 00:05:53.060 --> 00:05:54.260
  • A LOT OF CHRISTIANS THINK THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:05:54.270 --> 00:05:56.150
  • A SEMINARY DEGREE OR AT LEAST POSSESS SOME EXPERTISE
  • 00:05:56.160 --> 00:06:00.190
  • IN READING TEA LEAVES IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:00.200 --> 00:06:03.080
  • THE TRUTH OF BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:06:03.090 --> 00:06:05.220
  • I HAVE A FRIEND WHO PASTORS ONE OF OUR LARGEST CHURCHES
  • 00:06:05.230 --> 00:06:08.250
  • IN THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION.
  • 00:06:08.260 --> 00:06:10.270
  • YOU KNOW THE CHURCH VERY WELL.
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:13.220
  • A FEW YEARS AGO HE SAID TO ME,
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:15.070
  • "ROBERT, I WISH YOU WOULD WRITE A SIMPLE BOOK
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:18.120
  • "ON BIBLE PROPHECY SO THAT PEOPLE LIKE ME
  • 00:06:18.130 --> 00:06:21.040
  • "COULD UNDERSTAND IT."
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:23.230
  • NOW HERE IS A SMART GUY.
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:26.010
  • HE HAS A PHD FROM A RESPECTIVE SEMINARY
  • 00:06:26.020 --> 00:06:29.130
  • AND YET HE DOESN'T FEEL EQUIPPED
  • 00:06:29.140 --> 00:06:31.280
  • TO UNDERSTAND BIBLE PROPHECY HIMSELF, MUCH LESS TEACH IT
  • 00:06:31.290 --> 00:06:35.090
  • TO HIS THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF MEMBERS.
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:38.080
  • A LOT OF CHRISTIANS FEEL THAT WAY.
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:39.250
  • I HAVE A FRIEND WHO ISN'T PARTICULARLY INTERESTED
  • 00:06:39.260 --> 00:06:42.220
  • IN PROPHECY AND HE ALWAYS SAYS TO ME,
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:44.110
  • "ROBERT, IF GOD MEANT FOR US TO UNDERSTAND BIBLE PROPHECY,
  • 00:06:44.120 --> 00:06:48.130
  • "HE WOULD HAVE MADE IT MORE CLEAR IN THE BIBLE."
  • 00:06:48.140 --> 00:06:52.000
  • WELL THE FACT IS GOD HAS MADE THE END TIME EVENTS
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:06:55.170
  • VERY CLEAR IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:57.120
  • LET ME GIVE YOU AN ILLUSTRATION OF THAT.
  • 00:06:57.130 --> 00:06:59.010
  • TAKE YOUR BIBLES AND TURN TO MATTHEW 24.
  • 00:06:59.020 --> 00:07:02.010
  • MATTHEW 24.
  • 00:07:02.020 --> 00:07:03.160
  • THIS PASSAGE MATTHEW 24 AND 25 IS WHAT WE CALL
  • 00:07:03.170 --> 00:07:07.140
  • THE OLIVET DISCOURSE.
  • 00:07:07.150 --> 00:07:09.260
  • THE REASON WE CALL IT THAT IS IT'S JESUS' TEACHING
  • 00:07:09.270 --> 00:07:12.280
  • THAT OCCURRED ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 00:07:12.290 --> 00:07:15.120
  • YOU REMEMBER THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 00:07:15.130 --> 00:07:18.140
  • IT WAS FROM THAT MOUNTAIN THAT SHORTLY AFTER JESUS SPOKE
  • 00:07:18.150 --> 00:07:22.050
  • THESE WORDS, 40 DAYS AFTER HIS RESURRECTION,
  • 00:07:22.060 --> 00:07:24.120
  • HE WOULD ASCEND INTO HEAVEN.
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:26.160
  • IT'S ALSO ON THIS SPOT, THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,
  • 00:07:26.170 --> 00:07:29.210
  • THAT LORD JESUS CHRIST WILL RETURN AT HIS SECOND COMING,
  • 00:07:29.220 --> 00:07:33.040
  • VISIBLE FOR ALL TO SEE.
  • 00:07:33.050 --> 00:07:35.200
  • MANY OF YOU ARE GOING WITH US THIS SPRING TO ISRAEL
  • 00:07:35.210 --> 00:07:38.120
  • AND WE ARE GOING TO STAND ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES,
  • 00:07:38.130 --> 00:07:41.100
  • THAT VERY PLACE THAT CHRIST IS GOING TO RETURN
  • 00:07:41.110 --> 00:07:45.020
  • AND IF YOU'VE HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF STANDING THERE BEFORE,
  • 00:07:45.030 --> 00:07:47.090
  • IT IS A MAGNIFICENT VIEW.
  • 00:07:47.100 --> 00:07:48.280
  • YOU CAN STAND THERE AND YOU LOOK ACROSS THE KIDRON VALLEY
  • 00:07:48.290 --> 00:07:52.170
  • AND YOU SEE THE GREAT TEMPLE MOUNT AND THE TEMPLE COMPLEX.
  • 00:07:52.180 --> 00:07:57.150
  • NOW HERE IS THE SETTING FOR MATTHEW 24,
  • 00:07:57.160 --> 00:07:59.260
  • JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES WERE AT THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:07:59.270 --> 00:08:03.170
  • THEY WERE WALKING OUT OF THE TEMPLE
  • 00:08:03.180 --> 00:08:05.120
  • WHEN JESUS SAID IN A MATTER OF FACT WAY,
  • 00:08:05.130 --> 00:08:07.280
  • "BY THE WAY, ONE DAY THIS MASSIVE TEMPLE
  • 00:08:07.290 --> 00:08:10.200
  • "IS GOING TO BE LEVELED AND NO STONE WILL STAND."
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:15.240
  • JUST IMAGINE YOU WALKED OUT TO CHURCH TODAY,
  • 00:08:15.250 --> 00:08:17.270
  • SOMEBODY SAID TO YOU, "YOU KNOW THIS BEAUTIFUL NEW
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:19.230
  • "FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF DALLAS?
  • 00:08:19.240 --> 00:08:21.070
  • "DID YOU KNOW ONE DAY, EVERY BRICK IN THIS PLACE
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:24.210
  • "IS GOING TO BE LEVELED AND IT WILL BE NO MORE?"
  • 00:08:24.220 --> 00:08:27.160
  • WOULDN'T THAT KIND OF AROUSE YOUR CURIOSITY?
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:30.220
  • THEN DID THE DISCIPLES, THEY LEFT THE TEMPLE WITH JESUS,
  • 00:08:30.230 --> 00:08:33.090
  • THEY CROSS THE KIDRON VALLEY,
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:35.030
  • AND THEY WENT UP TO THE MOUNT OF OLIVES.
  • 00:08:35.040 --> 00:08:37.050
  • WHEN THEY HAD JESUS ALONE PRIVATELY,
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:39.120
  • LOOK AT WHAT THEY SAID TO HIM.
  • 00:08:39.130 --> 00:08:41.190
  • CHAPTER 24:3, "AND AS JESUS WAS SITTING
  • 00:08:41.200 --> 00:08:44.190
  • "ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES, THE DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM
  • 00:08:44.200 --> 00:08:47.160
  • "PRIVATELY SAYING, 'TELL US, WHEN WILL THESE THINGS BE?'"
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:51.160
  • THAT IS THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:08:51.170 --> 00:08:53.130
  • "'AND WHAT WILL BE THE SIGN OF YOUR COMING,
  • 00:08:53.140 --> 00:08:56.010
  • "'AND THE END OF THE AGE?'"
  • 00:08:56.020 --> 00:08:58.050
  • NOW WE KNOW FROM HISTORY THAT ABOUT 30 YEARS,
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:09:00.180
  • 40 YEARS, AFTER THIS HAPPENED, 70 A.D.,
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:04.210
  • TITUS, THE ROMAN CONQUEROR, CAME AND HE LEVELED JERUSALEM
  • 00:09:04.220 --> 00:09:08.070
  • AND DESTROYED THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:09:08.080 --> 00:09:10.080
  • SO IS THAT WHAT THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:09:10.090 --> 00:09:12.090
  • IS THAT WHAT JESUS WAS TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:09:12.100 --> 00:09:15.070
  • NO, BECAUSE THEY LINK THEIR QUESTION
  • 00:09:15.080 --> 00:09:17.180
  • TO THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST AND THE END OF THE AGE.
  • 00:09:17.190 --> 00:09:20.200
  • NOTICE THEY SAID IN VERSE THREE, "LORD TELL US
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:22.260
  • "WHEN THESE THINGS WILL BE, THE DESTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:25.260
  • "AND THE SIGN OF YOUR COMING, AND THE END OF THE AGE?"
  • 00:09:25.270 --> 00:09:29.130
  • THEY WANTED TO KNOW THE DETAILS ABOUT THE RETURN
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:33.140
  • OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:09:33.150 --> 00:09:35.050
  • HOW DID JESUS RESPOND TO THEIR QUESTION?
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:38.060
  • NOTICE WHAT HE DIDN'T SAY TO THEM
  • 00:09:38.070 --> 00:09:40.200
  • IN RESPONSE TO THEIR QUESTION.
  • 00:09:40.210 --> 00:09:42.170
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO THEM, "NOW BOYS, THIS SUBJECT OF PROPHECY
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:45.030
  • "IS TOO COMPLICATED FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:09:45.040 --> 00:09:47.020
  • "ESPECIALLY YOU PETER, YOU'LL NEVER GET IT."
  • 00:09:47.030 --> 00:09:49.030
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHS)
  • 00:09:49.040 --> 00:09:51.130
  • OR HE DIDN'T SAY TO THEM, "WELL YOU KNOW WHAT,
  • 00:09:51.140 --> 00:09:52.270
  • "DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE END TIME EVENTS,
  • 00:09:52.280 --> 00:09:54.120
  • "EVERYTHING WILL PAN OUT IN THE END."
  • 00:09:54.130 --> 00:09:57.120
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO THEM, "YOU DON'T NEED TO STUDY ESCHATOLOGY.
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:09:59.220
  • "THAT'S UNIMPORTANT.
  • 00:09:59.230 --> 00:10:01.000
  • "WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS CONCENTRATE
  • 00:10:01.010 --> 00:10:02.230
  • "ON BUILDING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
  • 00:10:02.240 --> 00:10:04.230
  • "AND SHARING THE GOSPEL WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
  • 00:10:04.240 --> 00:10:07.130
  • "DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE END TIME EVENTS."
  • 00:10:07.140 --> 00:10:09.280
  • HE COULD HAVE SAID THAT VERY CLEARLY, COULDN'T HE
  • 00:10:09.290 --> 00:10:12.040
  • WHEN HE WAS ASKED ABOUT THE SECOND COMING?
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:14.290
  • BUT JESUS DIDN'T RESPOND IN ANY OF THOSE WAYS.
  • 00:10:15.000 --> 00:10:17.260
  • INSTEAD, HE GAVE A VERY CLEAR OUTLINE OF THE EVENTS
  • 00:10:17.270 --> 00:10:22.070
  • THAT WOULD PRECEDE AND FOLLOW HIS RETURN.
  • 00:10:22.080 --> 00:10:25.250
  • LOOK AT MATTHEW 24:4, "AND JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID TO THEM,
  • 00:10:25.260 --> 00:10:30.020
  • "'SEE TO IT THAT NO ONE MISLEADS YOU.
  • 00:10:30.030 --> 00:10:32.050
  • "'FOR MANY WILL COME IN MY NAME, SAYING, 'I AM THE CHRIST,'
  • 00:10:32.060 --> 00:10:35.240
  • "'AND WILL MISLEAD MANY.
  • 00:10:35.250 --> 00:10:37.090
  • "'YOU WILL BE HEARING OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS.'"
  • 00:10:37.100 --> 00:10:41.190
  • THAT SOUND FAMILIAR?
  • 00:10:41.200 --> 00:10:43.280
  • "'YOU'LL BE HEARING OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS.
  • 00:10:43.290 --> 00:10:46.010
  • "'SEE TO IT THAT YOU ARE NOT FRIGHTENED,
  • 00:10:46.020 --> 00:10:48.100
  • "'FOR THOSE THINGS MUST TAKE PLACE,
  • 00:10:48.110 --> 00:10:50.170
  • "'BUT THAT IS NOT YET THE END.'"
  • 00:10:50.180 --> 00:10:54.030
  • VERSE 15.
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:55.180
  • "THEREFORE, WHEN YOU SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION,
  • 00:10:55.190 --> 00:10:58.100
  • "WHICH WAS SPOKEN UP THROUGH DANIEL THE PROPHET,
  • 00:10:58.110 --> 00:11:00.160
  • "STANDING IN THE HOLY PLACE, LET THE READER UNDERSTAND,
  • 00:11:00.170 --> 00:11:04.040
  • "THEN LET THOSE WHO ARE IN JUDEA FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS."
  • 00:11:04.050 --> 00:11:07.210
  • VERSE 29, "BUT IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:11.080
  • "OF THOSE DAYS, THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED,
  • 00:11:11.090 --> 00:11:13.290
  • "AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT,
  • 00:11:14.000 --> 00:11:15.160
  • "AND THE STARS WILL FALL FROM THE SKY,
  • 00:11:15.170 --> 00:11:17.150
  • "AND THE POWERS OF HEAVENS WILL BE SHAKEN.
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:20.130
  • "AND THEN THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN WILL APPEAR IN THE SKY,
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:24.090
  • "AND THEN ALL THE TRIBES OF THE EARTH WILL MOURN
  • 00:11:24.100 --> 00:11:26.230
  • "AND THEY WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS
  • 00:11:26.240 --> 00:11:30.000
  • "OF THE SKY WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY."
  • 00:11:30.010 --> 00:11:33.190
  • IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS, WE'LL SEE,
  • 00:11:33.200 --> 00:11:35.110
  • THAT THIS GIVES US A GREAT OUTLINE
  • 00:11:35.120 --> 00:11:36.290
  • OF WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN AT THE END,
  • 00:11:37.000 --> 00:11:38.140
  • THE DETAILS ABOUT THE TRIBULATION,
  • 00:11:38.150 --> 00:11:40.080
  • FOLLOWED BY THE SECOND COMING, THE MILLENNIAL KINGDOM,
  • 00:11:40.090 --> 00:11:42.290
  • AND THE JUDGMENTS THAT FOLLOW AFTERWARDS.
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:45.260
  • IT'S NOT THAT HARD TO UNDERSTAND THE EVENTS
  • 00:11:45.270 --> 00:11:48.280
  • THAT WILL LEAD TO THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:11:48.290 --> 00:11:51.150
  • JESUS HIMSELF MADE IT VERY CLEAR TO US.
  • 00:11:51.160 --> 00:11:53.290
  • SECONDLY, SOME PEOPLE OBJECT TO THE STUDY OF BIBLE PROPHECY
  • 00:11:54.000 --> 00:11:57.110
  • BECAUSE THEY SAY NO ONE CAN KNOW WHEN CHRIST WILL RETURN.
  • 00:11:57.120 --> 00:12:01.280
  • NOBODY CAN KNOW THAT.
  • 00:12:01.290 --> 00:12:04.040
  • LET'S BE HONEST ARE MANY SO-CALLED BIBLE PROPHECY EXPERTS
  • 00:12:04.050 --> 00:12:09.010
  • WHO HAVE TURNED PEOPLE OFF TO THE STUDY OF THE END TIMES
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:12.130
  • BY MAKING FALSE, INACCURATE PREDICTIONS
  • 00:12:12.140 --> 00:12:15.130
  • ABOUT WHEN THE END WILL COME.
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:18.140
  • YOU KNOW MANY OF THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:20.120
  • SOMETIMES THEY ADMIT IT THEMSELVES.
  • 00:12:20.130 --> 00:12:22.190
  • THEY SAY, "NOW I KNOW THE BIBLE SAYS WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED
  • 00:12:22.200 --> 00:12:24.220
  • "TO SET A TIME, HOWEVER," AND THEN THEY PROCEED TO DO THAT.
  • 00:12:24.230 --> 00:12:28.290
  • NO, THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR.
  • 00:12:29.000 --> 00:12:30.140
  • NO ONE KNOWS THE WHEN OF THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.
  • 00:12:30.150 --> 00:12:35.010
  • FOR EXAMPLE, CONSIDER THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHET DANIEL.
  • 00:12:35.020 --> 00:12:38.000
  • NO ONE RECEIVED A GREATER REVELATION OF END TIME EVENTS
  • 00:12:38.010 --> 00:12:41.160
  • THAN THE PROPHET DANIEL.
  • 00:12:41.170 --> 00:12:42.240
  • YET IN DANIEL 12:9, WE READ THESE WORDS,
  • 00:12:42.250 --> 00:12:45.150
  • "AND HE," THE ANGEL OF THE LORD SAID TO DANIEL,
  • 00:12:45.160 --> 00:12:47.290
  • "GO YOUR WAY, DANIEL, FOR THESE WORDS ARE CONCEALED
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:51.180
  • "AND SEALED UP UNTIL THE END TIME."
  • 00:12:51.190 --> 00:12:55.020
  • OR THE APOSTLE PAUL.
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:56.230
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL UNDERSTOOD MANY OF THE END TIME EVENTS.
  • 00:12:56.240 --> 00:13:00.290
  • ALTHOUGH HE DOESN'T SAY SO SPECIFICALLY,
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:03.000
  • I THINK AS YOU READ BETWEEN THE LINES OF PAUL'S WORDS,
  • 00:13:03.010 --> 00:13:06.000
  • HE EXPECTED THE LORD TO RETURN IN HIS LIFETIME.
  • 00:13:06.010 --> 00:13:08.290
  • AND YET, PAUL ALSO KNEW THAT THE TIME OF CHRIST'S RETURN
  • 00:13:09.000 --> 00:13:12.090
  • WAS UNKNOWN.
  • 00:13:12.100 --> 00:13:13.230
  • IT WAS A SECRET.
  • 00:13:13.240 --> 00:13:15.000
  • IN 1 THESSALONIANS 5:1 AND 2, PAUL WRITES,
  • 00:13:15.010 --> 00:13:18.050
  • "NOW AS TO THE TIMES AND THE EPOCHS, BRETHREN,
  • 00:13:18.060 --> 00:13:20.200
  • "YOU HAVE NO NEED OF ANYTHING TO BE WRITTEN TO YOU.
  • 00:13:20.210 --> 00:13:23.100
  • "FOR YOU YOURSELVES KNOW FULL WELL THAT THE DAY OF THE LORD
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:27.060
  • "WILL COME JUST LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT."
  • 00:13:27.070 --> 00:13:30.160
  • CONSIDER JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF.
  • 00:13:30.170 --> 00:13:32.020
  • EVEN THOUGH HE WAS THE SON OF GOD, EQUAL TO GOD,
  • 00:13:32.030 --> 00:13:35.160
  • HE CONFESSED HE DIDN'T KNOW THE TIME OF HIS RETURN.
  • 00:13:35.170 --> 00:13:38.240
  • IN MATTHEW 24:36, THE LORD SAID,
  • 00:13:38.250 --> 00:13:41.170
  • "BUT OF THAT DAY, HOUR NO ONE KNOWS,
  • 00:13:41.180 --> 00:13:44.100
  • "NOT EVEN THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN, NOR THE SON,
  • 00:13:44.110 --> 00:13:47.000
  • "BUT THE FATHER ALONE."
  • 00:13:47.010 --> 00:13:48.150
  • YOU MAY BE WONDERING, "HOW IS IT JESUS EQUAL TO GOD
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:50.140
  • "DIDN'T KNOW WHEN HE WAS GOING TO RETURN?"
  • 00:13:50.150 --> 00:13:52.120
  • THAT'S ANOTHER SERMON SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE.
  • 00:13:52.130 --> 00:13:55.140
  • BUT WHAT I WANT YOU TO SEE HERE IS SIMPLY THIS.
  • 00:13:55.150 --> 00:13:58.040
  • IF DANIEL, IF PAUL, IF EVEN JESUS HIMSELF REFUSED
  • 00:13:58.050 --> 00:14:03.010
  • TO SET THE DATE OF THE LORD'S RETURN,
  • 00:14:03.020 --> 00:14:04.280
  • WHO ARE WE TO THINK THAT WE WOULD KNOW WHEN THE LORD
  • 00:14:04.290 --> 00:14:07.240
  • IS GOING TO RETURN?
  • 00:14:07.250 --> 00:14:09.170
  • AND YET EVEN THOUGH WE'RE TOLD OVER AND OVER AGAIN
  • 00:14:09.180 --> 00:14:12.000
  • NOT TO SET DATES, NOT TO TRY TO CALCULATE WHEN THE LORD
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:15.040
  • IS GONNA TO RETURN, PEOPLE DO IT ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:14:15.050 --> 00:14:17.270
  • PEOPLE IN EVERY AGE HAVE BELIEVED THAT THEY WOULD KNOW
  • 00:14:17.280 --> 00:14:20.260
  • WHEN THE END WOULD COME.
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:22.140
  • FOR EXAMPLE, CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS THOUGHT
  • 00:14:22.150 --> 00:14:24.200
  • THAT THE WORLD WOULD END IN 1656.
  • 00:14:24.210 --> 00:14:27.220
  • I CAME ACROSS THIS QUOTE FROM COLUMBUS.
  • 00:14:27.230 --> 00:14:29.290
  • "THERE ARE BUT 155 YEARS LEFT, AT WHICH TIME THE WORLD
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:34.120
  • "WILL COME TO AN END."
  • 00:14:34.130 --> 00:14:36.070
  • OR MARTIN LUTHER,
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:37.150
  • THE LEADER OF THE GREAT PROTESTANT REFORMATION.
  • 00:14:37.160 --> 00:14:39.080
  • HE DIDN'T THINK THE WORLD WOULD LAST 300 YEARS
  • 00:14:39.090 --> 00:14:41.290
  • AFTER HIS OWN DEATH.
  • 00:14:42.000 --> 00:14:43.200
  • OR THE PSYCHIC EDGAR CAYCE WHO LIVED FROM 1877 TO 1945.
  • 00:14:43.210 --> 00:14:48.100
  • HE PREDICTED THAT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS WOULD OCCUR
  • 00:14:48.110 --> 00:14:51.010
  • IN THE YEAR 2000.
  • 00:14:51.020 --> 00:14:53.050
  • IN MORE RECENT YEARS, WE'RE ALL FAMILIAR
  • 00:14:53.060 --> 00:14:55.020
  • WITH RADIO PREACHER HAROLD CAMPING
  • 00:14:55.030 --> 00:14:57.270
  • WHO PREDICTED FOUR DIFFERENT TIMES
  • 00:14:57.280 --> 00:15:00.180
  • WHEN THE RAPTURE WOULD OCCUR ALL ERRONEOUSLY.
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:03.100
  • HE SAID IT WOULD OCCUR ON SEPTEMBER 6, 1994,
  • 00:15:03.110 --> 00:15:06.200
  • SEPTEMBER 29, 1994,
  • 00:15:06.210 --> 00:15:09.020
  • OCTOBER 4, 1994,
  • 00:15:09.030 --> 00:15:11.020
  • AND ON MARCH 31, 1995.
  • 00:15:11.030 --> 00:15:14.010
  • YOU WOULD THINK AFTER FOUR FAILED PREDICTIONS,
  • 00:15:14.020 --> 00:15:16.250
  • HE WOULD HANG UP HIS PROPHET'S HAT, BUT HE DIDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:15:16.260 --> 00:15:20.080
  • AGAIN HE MADE HEADLINES WHEN HE PREDICTED
  • 00:15:20.090 --> 00:15:22.240
  • THAT THE RAPTURE WOULD OCCUR ON MAY 21, 2011
  • 00:15:22.250 --> 00:15:26.170
  • AND THE WORLD WOULD COME TO AN END ON OCTOBER 21, 2011.
  • 00:15:26.180 --> 00:15:30.200
  • REMEMBER WHAT HE DID?
  • 00:15:30.210 --> 00:15:32.040
  • SPENT MILLIONS OF DOLLARS PUTTING UP BILLBOARDS
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:33.230
  • AROUND AMERICA ABOUT JUDGMENT DAY COMING?
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:37.040
  • IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.
  • 00:15:37.050 --> 00:15:38.120
  • HE ENDED UP GOING BANKRUPT.
  • 00:15:38.130 --> 00:15:40.060
  • AFTER FIVE FAILED PROPHECIES, HAROLD CAMPING SAID,
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:44.040
  • "I BELIEVE MY PREDICTIONS WERE OFF A LITTLE.
  • 00:15:44.050 --> 00:15:46.190
  • "I NEED TO GO BACK AND RECALCULATE."
  • 00:15:46.200 --> 00:15:48.230
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHS)
  • 00:15:48.240 --> 00:15:50.290
  • AS MY DAUGHTERS USED TO SAY, "THANK YOU, CAPTAIN OBVIOUS."
  • 00:15:51.000 --> 00:15:54.170
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHS)
  • 00:15:54.180 --> 00:15:58.010
  • THE MOST RECENT OCCURRENCE, OF COURSE, WAS IN 2012.
  • 00:15:58.020 --> 00:16:01.170
  • REMEMBER THE MAYAN MADNESS
  • 00:16:01.180 --> 00:16:04.020
  • OVER THE END OF THE MAYAN CALENDAR?
  • 00:16:04.030 --> 00:16:06.030
  • THE MAYAN CALENDAR ENDED ABRUPTLY ON DECEMBER 21, 2012.
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:10.000
  • MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE THE END OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:16:10.010 --> 00:16:12.240
  • IN FACT, NASA HAD TO PRODUCE A VIDEO.
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:15.130
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:16:15.140 --> 00:16:16.280
  • THEY HAD TO PRODUCE A VIDEO TO CALM THE WORLD'S POPULATION
  • 00:16:16.290 --> 00:16:19.090
  • OVER THE HYSTERIA ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD COMING.
  • 00:16:19.100 --> 00:16:23.070
  • IT WAS DURING THAT MAYAN MADNESS THAT I WROTE AN ARTICLE
  • 00:16:23.080 --> 00:16:25.250
  • FOR CNN.COM ABOUT DOOMSDAY PREDICTIONS.
  • 00:16:25.260 --> 00:16:29.220
  • I MADE THE POINT IN THAT ARTICLE
  • 00:16:29.230 --> 00:16:31.170
  • THAT THE PROBLEM WITH ALL OF THESE FALSE PREDICTIONS
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:34.130
  • ABOUT THE THE END OF THE WORLD IS
  • 00:16:34.140 --> 00:16:36.210
  • THEY KEEP PEOPLE FROM MAKING THE NECESSARY PREPARATIONS
  • 00:16:36.220 --> 00:16:40.110
  • WHEN THE REAL END DOES COME.
  • 00:16:40.120 --> 00:16:43.020
  • IT'S LIKE THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF SO MANY TIMES
  • 00:16:43.030 --> 00:16:46.280
  • THAT THE VILLAGERS FAILED TO MAKE THE NECESSARY PREPARATION
  • 00:16:46.290 --> 00:16:49.280
  • WHEN THE WOLF ACTUALLY CAME.
  • 00:16:49.290 --> 00:16:53.110
  • MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
  • 00:16:53.120 --> 00:16:55.190
  • THE END IS COMING.
  • 00:16:55.200 --> 00:16:59.180
  • GOD HASN'T TOLD US WHEN THAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN
  • 00:16:59.190 --> 00:17:02.160
  • FOR GOOD REASON.
  • 00:17:02.170 --> 00:17:04.280
  • JUST AS EVERY TEACHER KNOWS HOW UNFOCUSED HER STUDENTS ARE
  • 00:17:04.290 --> 00:17:08.050
  • THE LAST WEEK BEFORE SCHOOL LETS OUT.
  • 00:17:08.060 --> 00:17:11.170
  • GOD KNOWS IF WE KNEW WHEN OUR END WAS COMING,
  • 00:17:11.180 --> 00:17:14.200
  • IT'D BE VERY DIFFICULT FOR US
  • 00:17:14.210 --> 00:17:16.080
  • TO FOCUS ON THE COMMANDMENTS HE'S GIVEN US TO FULFILL.
  • 00:17:16.090 --> 00:17:19.160
  • THAT'S WHY GOD DOESN'T SHOW US HIS CALENDAR.
  • 00:17:19.170 --> 00:17:23.100
  • INSTEAD GOD TELLS US TO CONCENTRATE ON THE ASSIGNMENT
  • 00:17:23.110 --> 00:17:27.020
  • THAT HE'S GIVEN US.
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:28.280
  • YOU MAY SAY, "WELL IF I DON'T KNOW WHEN
  • 00:17:28.290 --> 00:17:30.160
  • "THIS IS GONNA HAPPEN, WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW 'THE WHATS'
  • 00:17:30.170 --> 00:17:32.270
  • "OF BIBLE PROPHECY?"
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:34.220
  • WELL THE FACT IS, SOMETIMES KNOWING WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN
  • 00:17:34.230 --> 00:17:38.170
  • IS IMPORTANT EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN IT'S GOING
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:40.190
  • TO OCCUR.
  • 00:17:40.200 --> 00:17:41.270
  • A FEW YEARS AGO I LANDED
  • 00:17:41.280 --> 00:17:43.030
  • AT LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.
  • 00:17:43.040 --> 00:17:45.200
  • IT WAS LATE AT NIGHT AND I NEEDED TO CATCH A SHUTTLE
  • 00:17:45.210 --> 00:17:48.070
  • TO MY HOTEL SO I CALLED THE SHUTTLE SERVICE.
  • 00:17:48.080 --> 00:17:52.110
  • THEY TOLD ME THAT THE VAN WOULD BE ALONG IN A FEW MINUTES.
  • 00:17:52.120 --> 00:17:55.110
  • I SAID, "DO YOU KNOW WHEN?"
  • 00:17:55.120 --> 00:17:57.020
  • THEY SAID, "WE CAN'T TELL YOU WHEN IT'S GOING TO COME,
  • 00:17:57.030 --> 00:17:59.150
  • "BUT HERE'S WHAT TO LOOK FOR.
  • 00:17:59.160 --> 00:18:01.040
  • "LOOK FOR A BLUE SKYLARK VAN
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:03.190
  • "THAT HAS THE WORDS 'WILSHIRE' ON IT
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:05.280
  • "AND THAT'S THE VAN YOU NEED TO GET ON."
  • 00:18:05.290 --> 00:18:08.010
  • SO I WENT OUT TO THE LOADING RAMP AND I WAITED
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:10.130
  • AND I WAITED AND I WAITED.
  • 00:18:10.140 --> 00:18:12.050
  • I SAW RED VANS.
  • 00:18:12.060 --> 00:18:13.140
  • I SAW ORANGE VANS.
  • 00:18:13.150 --> 00:18:14.290
  • I SAW WHITE VANS.
  • 00:18:15.000 --> 00:18:16.180
  • THEY ALL PASSED BY.
  • 00:18:16.190 --> 00:18:17.290
  • I EVEN SAW SOME BLUE SKYLARK VANS
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:20.010
  • WITH THE WORDS 'DISNEYLAND' ON IT.
  • 00:18:20.020 --> 00:18:21.290
  • ANOTHER ONE WITH THE WORD 'HOLLYWOOD' ON IT.
  • 00:18:22.000 --> 00:18:24.120
  • BUT IF I HAD GOTTEN ON ANY OF THOSE VANS,
  • 00:18:24.130 --> 00:18:27.250
  • I WOULD'VE BEEN TAKEN TO THE WRONG DESTINATION.
  • 00:18:27.260 --> 00:18:30.220
  • EVENTUALLY, I SAW THE RIGHT VAN COME ALONG
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:33.220
  • AND I GOT ON AND ENDED UP AT MY HOTEL.
  • 00:18:33.230 --> 00:18:36.280
  • JESUS SAID THAT THROUGHOUT HISTORY
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:39.170
  • THERE WOULD BE MANY FALSE CHRISTS WHO WOULD PREDICT,
  • 00:18:39.180 --> 00:18:42.180
  • "I AM THE ONE."
  • 00:18:42.190 --> 00:18:44.060
  • AND MANY WILL FOLLOW HIM AND END UP
  • 00:18:44.070 --> 00:18:46.180
  • IN THE WRONG DESTINATION.
  • 00:18:46.190 --> 00:18:48.160
  • THE BIBLE SAYS HERE'S WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN,
  • 00:18:48.170 --> 00:18:51.060
  • HERE'S HOW IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:52.290
  • I'M NOT GONNA TELL YOU WHEN, BUT HERE'S WHAT TO LOOK FOR
  • 00:18:53.000 --> 00:18:55.290
  • AND IF WE UNDERSTAND WHAT TO LOOK FOR,
  • 00:18:56.000 --> 00:18:58.080
  • WE'LL END UP IN THE RIGHT DESTINATION.
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:19:01.120
  • NUMBER THREE, SOME PEOPLE OBJECT TO BIBLE PROPHECY
  • 00:19:01.130 --> 00:19:03.250
  • BECAUSE THEY SAY, "WELL THERE'RE TOO MANY
  • 00:19:03.260 --> 00:19:05.120
  • "DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS OF PROPHECY
  • 00:19:05.130 --> 00:19:07.240
  • "FOR IT TO BE THAT IMPORTANT.
  • 00:19:07.250 --> 00:19:09.060
  • "AFTER ALL, SO MANY GOOD CHRISTIAN SCHOLARS
  • 00:19:09.070 --> 00:19:11.240
  • "DISAGREE ON BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:13.150
  • "IT JUST CAN'T BE THAT IMPORTANT."
  • 00:19:13.160 --> 00:19:17.010
  • I WAS ON A PANEL DISCUSSION ONE TIME
  • 00:19:17.020 --> 00:19:19.200
  • AND I WAS WITH A WELL KNOWN CHRISTIAN APOLOGIST
  • 00:19:19.210 --> 00:19:22.210
  • AND THEY HAD A QUESTION AND ANSWER TIME
  • 00:19:22.220 --> 00:19:24.180
  • AND SOMEBODY ASKED A QUESTION ABOUT BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:19:24.190 --> 00:19:27.170
  • THE SPEAKER SAID, "WELL, I'M NOT MUCH ON BIBLE PROPHECY.
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:30.250
  • "WE'LL LET ROBERT ANSWER THAT ONE."
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:32.250
  • I'M NOT A PRE-MILLENNIALIST, A NON-MILLENNIALIST,
  • 00:19:32.260 --> 00:19:35.040
  • OR A POST-MILLENNIALIST.
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:36.140
  • I'M A PAN-MILLENNIALIST.
  • 00:19:36.150 --> 00:19:37.280
  • I BELIEVE IT'S ALL GOING TO PAN OUT IN THE END.
  • 00:19:37.290 --> 00:19:40.120
  • (CONGREGATION LAUGHS)
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:41.190
  • CHUCKLE, CHUCKLE, CHUCKLE,
  • 00:19:41.200 --> 00:19:42.250
  • JUST LIKE THE AUDIENCE DID.
  • 00:19:42.260 --> 00:19:45.060
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE BELIEVE, "WELL THERE'S SO MANY
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:46.220
  • "DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS.
  • 00:19:46.230 --> 00:19:48.180
  • "IT CAN'T BE THAT IMPORTANT."
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:51.040
  • BUT THE FACT THAT THERE ARE A LOT
  • 00:19:51.050 --> 00:19:52.110
  • OF DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS...
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:53.250
  • AND BY THE WAY, WHAT THEOLOGICAL SUBJECT DO YOU KNOW OF
  • 00:19:53.260 --> 00:19:57.040
  • THAT THERE AREN'T A LOT OF DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS FOR?
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:20:00.030
  • JUST BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENT OPINIONS
  • 00:20:00.040 --> 00:20:02.090
  • ABOUT BIBLE PROPHECY, DOESN'T MEAN THERE'S NOT ONE,
  • 00:20:02.100 --> 00:20:05.230
  • CORRECT INTERPRETATION.
  • 00:20:05.240 --> 00:20:09.090
  • SOME OF YOU CRINGE WHEN I SAY THAT.
  • 00:20:09.100 --> 00:20:12.060
  • ONE, CORRECT INTERPRETATION?
  • 00:20:12.070 --> 00:20:14.070
  • "PASTOR ARE YOU SAYING THERE'S

  • ABSOLUTELY.

  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:39.260
  • ONLY ONE CORRECT INTERPRETATION CORRECT OF GOD'S WORD
  • 00:20:39.270 --> 00:20:43.100
