Signs of His Coming
We have been unpacking Matt 24 for the past few weeks and I want to wrap it up here for now but first a report on Enviropig
Enviropig is genetically engineered pig that was developed by combining Pig & mice dna and Ecolli bacteria.
The goal was to produce a low gaseous methane pig with better digestion.
An uproar in Canada brought the project to a halt in 2010 but the Chinese in July of 2018 have begun experimenting again with this animal.
Now where do pigs generally end up?
On your breakfast plate!
Why is this of any concern to the church?
It is during the time of God’s judgement that man would consume swine, the abomination - filth faeces & the mouse!
Who could of imagined of such a thing could even be possible yet now it starting agin in preperation of the days to come!
It is clear that we have seen in this generation an advancement of knowledge & evil the likes of which the world has ever seen
Last week we talked about the attack on the natural sexual function of “man” and the pressure the world is putting upon us to accept this new religion of sexuality
Remember that lawlessness is at the basis of this new religion
WHO: Each year, there are an estimated 357 million new infections with 1 of 4 STIs: chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and trichomoniasis.
More than 500 million people are estimated to have genital infection with herpes simplex virus (HSV).
More than 290 millionwomen have a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection
Shocking Stats on STDs in America.
Today 25 percent of Americans have an incurable sexually transmitted disease.
That's just the beginning.
Among the most alarmng stats: Eighty-five percent of Americans with herpes (42 million people) don't know it.
In the US we saw this week the first transgender man become a Gubernatorial candidate for the state of Connecticut
The largest earthquake in the history of Alaska
the release of a report in Pennsylvania that more than 300 priests sexually abused more than 1000 reported cases or prepubescent children
And since I started this message more than 200 babies worldwide have suffered abortion.
5790,000 in the US this year and 27,000 > 16 weeks
This deception of freedom is killing our world!
Paul wrote to those very same people about the delivering power of Christ:
The call to the Church is to be ready at any moment for the return of Christ keeping that in view at all times
It should be our motivation, hope and expectation, but remember that the key to this is “be ready”
We see that the days of Noah are upon us - there were years of warning the people but they chose to ignore the waring signs until judgement was upon them!
Many scholars link this to the words of encouragement tht Paul gave to the Thessalonians
Here we find reference to the word Rapture - the sudden removal of the restratining force of the Church so that lawlessness can truly explode!
So we have Noah delivered by being taken out of the judgement so the church shall be delivered by being removed from the judgement.
My friends today we are faced with the reality that the prophetic clock of God’s plan is coming closer to midmight
If these things be true, then what sort of people ought we to be?
What crown - the crown of Righteousness
