LYNN HILES
MINISTRIES PRESENTS DR. LYNN HILES THAT YOU MIGHT
HAVE LIFE. AND HERE’S YOUR HOST,
DR. LYNN HILES.>>I WANT TO THANK YOU AGAIN FOR
JOINING US ON THE PROGRAM. I REALLY TRUST THAT YOU’RE
TUNING IN, AND YOU’RE GETTING WHAT WE’RE SAYING.
WE JUST CAME OUT OF THE LAST PROGRAM WE SHOT, WE SHOT WITHOUT
EVEN TAKING A BREAK. JUST THE FLOW OF WHAT WE NEEDED
TO SAY WAS SO IMPORTANT. BUT I HOPE YOU TUNED IN.
AND LET ME JUST SAY AGAIN I ENCOURAGE YOU, IF YOU MISSED
SOME OF THE PROGRAMS YOU CAN GO BACK TO YOU TUBE AND WATCH THEM
AGAIN. THEY’RE ARCHIVED THERE SO YOU’RE
ABLE TO WATCH THAT. WE DO APPRECIATE.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR POSITIVE NOTES AND COMMENTS AND THINGS
THAT YOU SHARED CONCERNING LISTENING TO THE PROGRAM.
WE ARE DEEPLY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
IT KEEPS US GOING. I HAVE ON THE SET AGAIN, JOHN,
WHO I BELIEVE IS RECOGNIZED AS ONE OF THE SCHOLARS IN THIS
FLD OF ESCHATOLOGY. HE IS THE PRESIDENT OF PROPHECY
REFORMATION INSTITUTE. IT’S A CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICAL
SCHOLAR AND MEMBER OF THE EVANGELICAL THEOLOGICAL SOCIETY
WHERE JOHN HAS PRESENTED 17 PAPERS ON
ESCHATOLOGICAL REFORMATION ISSUES.
HE HOLDS AN EARNED PH.D. IN THEOLOGY FROM TRINITY
THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY AND UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL WITH
DISTINCTIONS. HE’S AN AUTHOR
OF SEVERAL PUBLISHED BOOKS, INCLUDING UNRAVELING THE END.
THE ONE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE MOST.
FOUR COMPETING AND CONFLICTING END TIME VIEWS.
HE HAS ONE CALLED THE GREATER JESUS.
HE HAS ONE CALLED THE PERFECT ENDING TO THE WORLD.
HE HAS ONE CALLED OFF TARGET. HE HAS SEVERAL TITLES AVAILABLE.
AND YOU ASK GET THEM BY GOING TO AMAZON.COM AND ORDERING THOSE
BOOKS FROM AMAZON.COM. I THINK THOSE ARE THE ONLY
PLACES YOU CAN GET THEM AT AMAZON.COM.
IF YOU’RE A PASTOR, GET HIS BOOKS.
A GREAT, YOU KNOW, WEDNESDAY NIGHT TEACHING SERIES AND
BIBLE STUDIES. I BELIEVE YOU’LL BE BLESSED BY
HIM. HE’S A SCREEN WRITER AND
ENTREPRENEUR AND PAST 20 YEAR MEMBER OF…
NUMEROUS TELEVISION PROGRAMS AND RADIO INCLUDING LARRY KING LIVE
AND CBN 700 CLUB AND BEST OF ALL YOU MIGHT HAVE LIFE WITH DR.
LYNN HILES NOW. AND HE’S CLIMBED MOUNTAINS
AROUND THE WORLD AND LIVES IN INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, WITH HIS
WIFE CINDY WHO IS A FORMER STATE REPRESENTATIVE.
IT’S A GREAT HONOR TO HAVE YOU ON THE PROGRAM AGAIN, JOHN, WITH
THOSE KIND OF CREDENTIALS. I THINK PEOPLE LOOK AT US, OR
DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT TEACH DIFFERENT THINGS.
YOU HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE TEACHING, I’M NOT KNOCKING THAT,
BUT THEY DON’T HAVE A REAL EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND.
IN OTHER WORDS, YOU CAN PREACH ANYTHING YOU WANT TO AS LONG AS
NOBODY CHALLENGES IT. A LOT OF STUFF YOU’VE WRITTEN
HAS BEEN SCRUTINIZED ESPECIALLY THIS THEORY TO DO A DISSERTATION
IT HAD TO BE SCRUTINIZED. IT’S A VALID VIEW OF LOOK AT
THINGS. AND WE SIMPLY ASK YOU TO OPEN
YOUR HEART AND SAY WHAT IS THIS IS POSSIBLE?
IT IS INCREDIBLE GOOD NEWS. I FOR THE LIFE OF ME DON’T
UNDERSTAND WHY ANYBODY WOULD HESITATE TO EMBRACE THIS.
THE FEAR WE’VE PREACHED IN THE CHURCH HAS CRIPPLED THE CHURCH.
IT HAS MADE US NOT BE THE SALT AND LIGHT WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE.
IT HAS HAM STRUNG OUR PURPOSE AND DESTINY WITH THE
UNDERSTANDING A LOT OF THE STUFF WE’VE BEEN TOLD ALL OF OUR LIVES
IS SOMEWHERE OUT IN OUR FUTURE. WE SHOWED YOU IN THE LAST TWO
SEGMENTS ESPECIALLY WITH THIS TIME LINE THE SEVEN YEARS OF
TRIBULATION IS NOT IN YOUR FUTURE.
IT IS IN YOUR PAST, AS FAR AS THE BIBLICAL ESCHATOLOGICAL
VIEWS OF THE BOOK OF DANL AND WHAT MOST PROPHECY TEACHERS
PREACH. AND HANG IT ON IS DANL’S
PROPHECIES. AND WE SHOWED IN THE LAST TWO
SEGMENTS ESPECIALLY THIS TIME LINE OF HOW THAT IS THE
APPOINTED TIME OF THE END.>>AND IT CERTAINLY CAME.
DID NOT PROVE FALSE. DIDN’T TARRY.
>>SO MY QUESTION IS, HOW DOES THIS HARMONIZE NOW WITH THE NEW
TESTAMENT? BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IS, THESE
MEN DIDN’T HAVE THE NEW TESTAMENT YET.
THEY PREACHED FROM THE LAW OF THE PROPHETS SO THEY UNDERSTOOD
THESE THINGS FROM WHAT THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS SAID.
EVEN JESUS ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS TOLD THEM ALL THINGS CONCERNING
HIMSELF FROM THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS.
>>AND THEIR HEARTS BURNED WITHIN THEM.
>>HOW DOES THIS FIT WITH A LOT OF THE SCRIPTURES THAT ARE IN
OUR NEW TESTAMENT?>>THE ANSWER IS PERFECTLY.
DIVINE PERFECTION ONCE AGAIN. GOD DOES EVERYTHING WITH A PLAN,
PURPOSE, A TIMEFRAME, AND MATHEMATICAL PRECISION.
SO WE GET TO THE NEW TESTAMENT AND IT’S TOTAL HARMONY WITH WHAT
DANL WAS LAYING OUT HERE WITH DANL 70 WEEKS OF YEARS AND
DANL’S TIME OF THE END, PERFECT COMING OF THE MESSIAH,
AUTHENTICATION AND HABAKKUK APPOINTED TIME OF THE END.
WE COME TO THE NEW TESTAMENT. AND WE COME TO JESUS AND HIS
EARTHLY MINISTRY. AND HE MAKES EMPHATIC TIME
STATEMENTS THROUGHOUT HIS EARTHLY MINISTRY.
HERE’S A FEW OF THEM. MATTHEW 10:23 WHILE TALKING WITH
HIS DISCIPLES, JESUS PROMISED WHEN YOU ARE PERSECUTED IN ONE
PLACE, FLEE TO ANOTHER. I TELL YOU THE TRUTH.
THERE’S THE LANGUAGE. I TELL YOU THE TRUTH.
OR VERILY, VERILY. YOU’LL NOT FINISH GOING THROUGH
THE CITIES OF ISRAEL BEFORE THE SON OF MAN COMES.
>>SEE, I USED TO READ OVER THAT STUFF.
WHAT IS HE SAYING HERE? IT’S SO CLEAR.
YOU WILL NOT HAVE FINISHED GOING THROUGH THE CITIES.
>>HERE’S WHEN HE’S TALKING. HERE’S WHEN IT WOULD HAPPEN.
IN PERFECT HARMONY WITH WHAT DANL SAYS.
>>WE’VE GOT TO CONSIDER THAT. JESUS SAID THAT.
NOT US. JESUS SAID, YOU WILL NOT.
>>RIGHT THERE. MATTHEW 16:27 HE INFORMED HIS
DISCIPLES, FOR THE SON OF MAN IS GOING TO COME IN HIS FATHER’S
GLORY. WITH HIS ANGELS.
AND THEN HE WILL REWARD EACH PERSON ACCORDING TO WHAT HE HAS
DONE. I TELL YOU THE TRUTH.
THERE IT IS AGAIN. SOME WHO ARE STANDING HERE.
>>PREACHING THEN.>>WILL NOT TASTE DEATH BEFORE
THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN HIS KINGDOM.
>>THERE’S NO WAY AROUND THAT, JOHN.
THERE’S NO WAY AROUND IT.>>MATTHEW 26:64 QUOTING FROM
THE PROPHET DANL, JESUS RESPONDED TO AND FOREWARNED
CAIAPHAS, THE HIGH PRIEST OF THE SANHEDRIN SAYING, IN THE FUTURE,
YOU, WHO IS YOU?>>CAIAPHAS.
>>THAT’S RIGHT. YOU WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN
SITTING AT IS THE RIGHT HAND AND COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.
LYNN, DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY TIMES HE’S COME ON THE CLOUDS OF
HEAVEN?>>IT’S ALL THROUGH THE
SCRIPTURE WHEN YOU THINK OF PROPHETIC LANGUAGES.
>>THERE’S MANY USES AND FULFILLMENT.
GOD THE FATHER WAS KNOWN AS CLOUD COMING GOD.
WE’LL GET TO SOME OF THAT. I MEAN, THIS IS NOT A NEW THING.
>>PARADIGM IS LIKE OKAY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HOLLYWOOD STUFF
WHERE HE’S RIDING A HORSE ON A CLOUD.
RATHER THAN THE PROPHETIC, THE PROPHETIC LANGUAGE.
>>IN THE OLD TESTAMENT ASSOCIATED WITH DAY OF THE LORD
AGAINST EGYPT AND OTHER PEOPLE. JESUS IS USING THAT SAME
LANGUAGE HERE TO COME AGAINST JERUSALEM AND THE POWER OF THE
HOLY PEOPLE WILL BE FINALLY BROKEN, DANL SAID WOULD BE THE
HISTORICAL SETTING OF THE ONE AND ONLY APPOINTED TIME OF THE
END. PERFECT HARMONY.
MATTHEW 24. THREE 27 AND SO FORTH.
JESUS DIVINELY LINKED THE TIME OF I SAY COMING TO THE
DESTRUCTION OF THE TEMPLE. TELL US, THEY SAID, WHEN WILL
THIS HAPPEN? ONE STONE NOT LEFT ON ANOTHER.
WHAT WILL BE THE SIGN OF YOUR COMING.
NOTICE THAT WORD COMING, NEEDED A SIGN, THAT SHOULD TELL US
SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT ABOUT THE NATURE OF THIS TYPE OF
COMING. WE’LL BE TALKING ABOUT THAT MORE
IN A FUTURE COMING. AND THE END OF THE AGE.
NOT END OF THE WORLD. THAT WORD.
>>PEOPLE FOR A LONG TIME.>>END OF THE AGE.
SO WILL BE THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN.
AT THAT TIME, THIS IS VERSE 30, THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN WILL
APPEAR IN THE SKY. NOT THE BODY OR FACE OR ARM OR
ELBOW OR KNEE OR LEG. BUT THE SKY WILL APPEAR.
BIG DIFFERENCE. AND ALL NATIONS OF THE EARTH
WILL MOURN. THEY’LL SEE THE SON OF MAN
COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY. AGAIN THIS HAS HAPPENED SEVERAL
TIMES BEFORE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT WITH POWER AND GREAT
GLORY, I TELL YOU THE TRUTH. MATTHEW 24:34 THIS GENERATION
WILL CERTAINLY NOT PASS AWAY UNTIL ALL THESE THINGS HAVE
HAPPENED. C. S. LEWIS CALLS IT THE MOST
EMBARRASSING VERSE OF THE BIBLE.>>BECAUSE HE THINKS IT DIDN’T
HAPPEN.>>WE THINK IT DID HAPPEN AND
THE TIME OF THE END OF THE AGE MATTHEW CALLS IT END OF THE
WORLD, IS NOT THE END OF THIS AGE, IT’S THE END OF THE AGE OF
THE LAW AND THE JEWISH AGE.>>YES, AND FOR CENTURIES
THEOLOGIANS HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE TO GET
AROUND THAT AND COME UP WITH ALL OF THESE EMBARRASSING TIME
RESTRICTIVE TYPE STATEMENTS. AND YET THESE WORDS JESUS SAID
ARE PLAIN, SIMPLE, UNDERSTANDABLE WORDS SAID TO
PEOPLE WHO DIDN’T HAVE ANY HIGH LEVEL EDUCATION, THEY WERE
UNEDUCATED TYPE PEOPLE. AND THE LIBERALS AND THE
SKEPTICS USE THIS AS THE FOCAL POINT OF THEIR ATTACK ON THE
BIBLE AND THE DEITY OF CHRIST. AND THE LAST 50 TO 75 MAYBE 100
YEARS HERE IN AMERICA, WE HAVE LOST OVER HALF OF THE CHURCH TO
THE LIBERAL SKEPTICAL ATTACK ON DEITY OF JESUS IN THE BIBLE IN
TERMS OF DENOMINATIONS AND SEMINARIES IN TERMS OF CHURCHES,
IN TERMS OF SOME OF THE YOUNGEST AND BEST MINDS OF CHRISTIANITY
DEPARTED FROM CONSERVATIVE FAITH BECAUSE OF THIS.
THIS IS THE CRACK THAT LET THE LIBERALS IN THE DOOR TO BEGIN
THEIR SYSTEMATIC DISMANTLING OF THE AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE.
>>EVEN LIKE I SAID, I READ IN ONE OUR POPULAR MAGAZINES I
BELIEVE IT WAS NEWS WEEK, I’M NOT SURE, I WOULD HAVE TO LOOK
THAT UP. BECAUSE PETER, PAUL, JESUS JOHN
SAID WE ALL LIVE IN THE LAST TIME.
WE’RE NOT GUESSING. WE KNOW IT’S THE LAST TIME.
ANTICHRIST IS ALREADY ON THE SCENE.
AND THEN THE APOSTLE PAUL WOULD SAY IN HEBREWS ONE, GOD HAS,
PAST TENSE, IN THESE LAST DAYS SPOKEN TO US BY HIS SON.
HE SPOKE THE TIME THE SON SPOKE AS LAST TIMES.
PETER WOULD SAY IN ACTS TWO THIS IS THAT THAT WAS SPOKEN BY THE
PROPHET JOEL. THAT IN THE LAST DAYS.
AND THEN JESUS WOULD SAY IN MATTHEW 24, THIS GENERATION WILL
NOT PASS UNTIL ALL THESE THINGS HAVE BEEN FULFILLED.
AND THE LIBERALS SAY SINCE IT DID NOT HAPPEN, THEN
THE SCRIPTURE IS NOT VALID. THEY CHALLENGE HIS DEITY AND THE
AUTHORITY OF THE SCRIPTURE. BECAUSE IF THEY’RE WRONG ABOUT
THAT, WHAT ELSE ARE THEY WRONG ABOUT?
WHAT WE’RE SUGGESTING IS, THEY WERE NOT WRONG.
IT HAPPENED EXACTLY.>>PRECISELY.
>>PRECISELY LIKE THEY DID. THE REST ARE PUTTING A GAP
THEORY AND SAYING IT DIDN’T HAPPEN.
ALL THESE OTHER THINGS. JESUS IS CONTINUE TOGETHER SET
THE TIME HIMSELF, NOT JUST ONE PLACE BUT SEVERAL TIMES WHEN YOU
READ IN MATTHEW, YOU WOULD NOT FINISH GOING THROUGH JERUSALEM.
TAKE IT BACK.>>SCHOLARS BASICALLY AGREE THAT
THE EARLY CHURCH ALL EXPECTED THESE THINGS TO HAPPEN AT THAT
TIME AND THEY UNDERSTOOD JESUS’ WORDS IN A PLAIN, COMMON,
ORDINARY WAY. THEY’RE NOT COMPLICATED WORDS.
THEY WERE GIVEN THE HOLY SPIRIT JOHN 16:13 TO GUIDE THEM INTO
ALL TRUTH AND THE THINGS TO COME.
WHO MESSED UP? DID THE HOLY SPIRIT DO AN
INADEQUATE JOB OF COMMUNICATING TRUTH OR DID THEY DO AN
INADEQUATE JOB OF UNDERSTANDING? IF EITHER ONE IS INCORRECT HOW
CAN WE EXPECT THEM TO CONVEY OTHER ASPECTS OF THE FAITH?
MAYBE THEY’RE WRONG WITH SALVATION.
NOW THIS IS NOT LOST IN THE LIBERALS AND THE SKEPTICS AND
CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICALS HAVE NEVER HAD AN EFFECTIVE EFFICIENT
RESPONSE TO THAT. WELL ONE OF THESE DAYS JESUS
WILL COME BACK AND FINISH THE JOB.
WHICH JUST PROVES THE LIBERALS SKEPTIC POINT THIS IS ALL TIME
RESTRICTED. YOU CAN’T INSERT 1900 YEAR GAP
AND COUNTING AND INTERRUPTION AND DELAY.
YOU CAN’T DO THAT. HOLD OUR FEET TO THE FIRE.
OKAY. SO THERE’S ANOTHER FACTOR THAT
PROVES BACK IN THE CENTURY OF JESUS’ WORDS WERE CORRECT.
THAT IS AS JESUS’ 40 YEAR PERIOD OF VERILY THIS GENERATION WILL
NOT PASS AWAY UNTIL ALL THESE THINGS HAPPEN.
A. D. 30 THE WEEK OF HIS CRUCIFIXION.
THAT’S WHEN HE SAID IT. VERILY, VERILY I TELL YOU THE
TRUTH, THIS GENERATION WILL NOT PASS AWAY UNTIL ALL THESE THINGS
HAVE HAPPENED. FROM A. D. 30 TO A. D. 70 WOUND
DOWN, WE FIND THAT THE LANGUAGE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WRITERS
RATCHET IT UP. I CALL IT INTENSIFICATION OF
NEARNESS LANGUAGE. WHICH AGAIN, DEMONSTRATES THIS
IS HOW THEY UNDERSTOOD THIS. AGAIN, THEY WERE GUIDED INTO ALL
TRUTH BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.>>LET ME SAY THIS BEFORE YOU
MOVE ON HOW THEY RATCHET IT UP. THIS IS WHERE THERE’S A LOT OF
DISAGREEMENT. THIS GENERATION WILL PASS.
YOU KNOW SOME OF OUR CRITICS WOULD SAY, NO THAT’S THE
GENERATION.>>WE’LL GET TO THAT IN OUR NEXT
PROGRAM.>>I WANTED TO SAY, THERE WAS A
40 YEAR JUST LIKE JESUS SAID. THIS GENERATION.
HE WAS TALKING TO PEOPLE ALIVE AND WELL RIGHT THEN FROM 30 TO
70 A. D. WAS A GENERATION.>>AND HE CALLS IT EMBARRASSING
AND EXHIBITION OF ERROR AND THE LIBERALS AND SKEPTICS AGREE WITH
THAT.>>RATCHETING UP.
>>A. D. 30, WE’RE NOW GOING TO FAST FORWARD TO A. D. 49, 19
YEARS LATER WHEN THE FIRST EPISTLES START TO BE WRITTEN.
SO I’LL USE THE DATES AND LIKE A ROCKET TEN NINE EIGHT SEVEN.
SO WE USE A T. MINUS HOW MANY YEARS ARE LEFT.
HERE WE ARE IN GALATIANS 4, 4. A. D. 49 T. MINUS 29 YEARS UNTIL
JESUS’ 40 YEAR TIMEFRAME IS UP. AND PAUL SAYS THIS.
HE SAID THE FULLNESS OF TIME WAS COME.
WAIT A MINUTE. THE FULLNESS OF WHAT TIME WAS
COME? IF BACK THEN WAS THE FULLNESS OF
TIME, DOES TIME EVER GET MORE FULL THAN THE FULLNESS?
NO. ALL RIGHT.
57 A. D. T. MINUS 13 YEARS PAUL WRITES IN 1 CORINTHIANS 7:29,
TIME IS SHORT. WE’RE HEARING THAT A LOT
NOWADAYS OR WE’VE BEEN HEARING THAT FOR A NUMBER OF CENTURIES.
>>2000 YEARS.>>HE SAID THAT BACK THEN.
TIME IS SHORT. WHAT TIME WAS SHORT BACK THEN?
TWO VERSES LATER HE TELLS US. THE WORLD IN ITS PRESENT FORM IS
PASSING AWAY. THAT IS DANL’S DEFINING
CHARACTERISTIC AND HISTORICAL SETTING FOR THE ONE AND ONLY
APPOINTED TIME OF THE END. WHEN THE POWER OF THE HOLY
PEOPLE IS ABOLISHED.>>AND THE WORLD THAT WAS
PASSING OFF THE SCENE WAS NOT A GLOBAL SITUATION.
>>THE COVENANTAL OLD TESTAMENT ANIMAL BLOOD SACRIFICE SYSTEM
THAT WAS MADE OBSOLETE HERE IN 30 A. D. AND WOULD BE REMOVED.
THIS IS ALSO WHAT JESUS WAS TALKING ABOUT IN MATTHEW 21 WHEN
HE SAID THE KINGDOM OF GOD WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU AND
GIVEN. THAT OLD TEMPLE BLOOD SACRIFICE
SYSTEM WAS THE FORM OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH DURING
THE OLD COVENANT. THE KINGDOM IS WHERE THE KING IS
IN DOMINION. WILL REIGN AND RULE.
IT WAS A TYPE AND SHADOW AND IT’S IN THE PROCESS OF COMING IN
HERE. FOR THE NEW TO COME, TO FULLY
COME, THE OLD HAD TO BE FULLY REMOVED.
THAT’S THE APPOINTED TIME OF THE END.
FAST FORWARD. COVENANTAL NOT COSMIC EVEN
THOUGH COSMIC LANGUAGE IS USED TO DESCRIBE IT BECAUSE OF THE
IMPORTANCE AND SIGNIFICANCE OF IT.
SO T. MINUS, T. MINUS 12 YEARS NOW.
THE APOSTLE PAUL WRITES IN ROMANS 13:11.
YOU’LL LIKE THIS. IT SAYS, UNDERSTAND THE PRESENT
TIME. BECAUSE OUR SALVATION IS NEARER
NOW THAN WHEN WE FIRST BELIEVED. THE NIGHT IS OVER.
AND THE DAY IS ALMOST HERE. SOME OF PAUL AND SOME OF THESE
ROMANS FIRST BELIEVED 20, 30 SOME YEARS AGO.
BUT NOW 58 A. D. AND ONLY 12 YEARS LEFT UNTIL JESUS’ TIME
PERIOD IS COMPLETED AND TEMPLE IS DESTROYED IN A. D. 70.
SO THIS IS LESS THAN THIS.>>SO THE REDEMPTION IS DRAWING
NIGH. NOT SOME FUTURE.
>>LET ME READ THIS AGAIN. BECAUSE OUR SALVATION IS NEARER
NOW THAN WHEN WE FIRST BELIEVED. INTERESTING ISN’T IT?
>>YEP.>>INTERESTING.
ALL RIGHT. T. MINUS 12 PAUL WRITES AGAIN
IN ROMANS, THE GOD OF PEACE WILL SOON OR SHORTLY CRUSH SATAN
UNDER YOUR FEET. T. MINUS 7, 60 A. D. JAMES
WRITE BE PATIENT STAND FIRM FOR THE LORD’S COMING IS NEAR.
OR KING JAMES SAYS AT HAND. I LIKE AT HAND BETTER.
THAT’S WHAT AT HAND MEANS, GRAS ABLE, SEIZABLE.
THAT BACKGROUND OVER THERE IS NEAR BUT I CAN’T REACH IT.
AT HAND IS BETTER. BE PATIENT, STAND FIRM THE
LORD’S COMING IS NEAR, THE JUDGE IS STANDING AT THE DOOR.
JESUS SAID IN MATTHEW 24:33, WHEN YOU SEE ALL THESE THINGS,
YOU KNOW HE IS NEAR RIGHT AT THAT TIME DOOR.
NOW, JAMES PUTS JUDGE JESUS AT THAT TIME DOOR.
T. MINUS 10.>>T. MINUS 10 YEARS.
>>T. MINUS FIVE. THE WRITER OF HEBREWS QUOTE AS
YOU WERE QUOTING. IN THESE LAST DAYS GOD’S SPOKEN
TO US BY HIS SON. THIS IS WHEN THE WRITER OF
HEBREWS IS WRITING AT 65, 66 A. D. IN THAT RANGE.
AND THIS IS BACK WHEN HE SPOKE TO US.
THESE ARE THE LAST DAYS ACCORDING TO THE INSPIRED WRITER
OF HEBREWS, TWO EVENTS. WHEN GOD’S SON AND THE TIME HE’S
WRITING IT. T. MINUS FIVE ALSO IN HEBREWS.
HEBREWS 10:37 THE WRITER WRITES, WE’VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT THIS
A LITTLE BIT. VARY, VARY IN A LITTLE WHILE HE
WILL COME. THE WORD TWICE VARY, VARY DOUBLE
INTENSIFICATION OF NEARNESS. T. MINUS THREE TO FIVE YEARS,
PETER WRITES, THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND.
AGAIN, AT HAND. THE END OF ALL THINGS.
PETER. WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU
TALKING ABOUT? TEN VERSES LATER HE TELLS US.
FOR IT IS TIME FOR JUDGMENT TO BEGIN AT THAT TIME HOUSE OF GOD.
THE DEFINING CHARACTERISTIC AND HISTORICAL SETTING THAT DANL
SPECIFIED WOULD BE THE NATURE OF THE TIME OF THE END.
>>AND IT WAS GOING TO START AT THAT TIME HOUSE OF GOD.
>>THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT. IN PERFECT HARMONY AND
FULFILLMENT WITH DANL AND HABAKKUK APPOINTED TIME OF THE
END. T. MINUS TEN TO THREE YEARS
JOHN WRITES IN 1 JOHN 2:18 TWO TIMES IN ONE VERSE.
IT IS THE LAST HOUR. THIS IS HOW WE KNOW, IT IS THE
LAST HOUR. WAIT A MINUTE.
WAIT A MINUTE. WAIT.
TIME OUT. DIDN’T JESUS DURING HIS EARTHLY
MINISTRY TELL US NO MAN COULD KNOW THE DAY OR HOUR, NOT EVEN
THE ANGELS? IN FACT, EVEN HE DIDN’T KNOW THE
DAY OR THE HOUR. AND JOHN 37 YEARS LATER IS NOT
SAYING WELL IT MIGHT BE. IT COULD BE.
ONE OF THESE DAYS, IT WILL BE. NO.
HE’S BEING EMPHATIC. HE SAID IT IS THE LAST HOUR.
THIS IS HOW WE KNOW. IT IS THE LAST HOUR.
HOW IN THE WORLD, HOW IN THE WORLD COULD JESUS SAY NO MAN
KNOWS AND JOHN’S A MAN AND HE KNOWS IT’S THE LAST HOUR.
AND THE WORD HOUR IS… WHEN JESUS SAID NO DAY OR HOUR
HE WAS USING THE WORD. HE WASN’T USING GREEK BUT THE
GREEK IS. WHAT HAPPENED?
WHAT HAPPENED WAS THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS GIVEN BETWEEN THOSE
TWO. AT PENTECOST.
AND ONE OF THE PURPOSES FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT JOHN 16:13 WAS TO
GUIDE THEM INTO ALL TRUTH AND TELL THEM THE THINGS TO COME.
OBVIOUSLY.>>TOLD JOHN WHAT WAS TO COME.
>>HELLO. SO HERE WE ARE.
ALL RIGHT. SO, WHAT WE HAVE HERE, LYNN, IS
PERFECT HARMONY AND UNDERSTANDING OF DANL’S
PROPHECY WITH JESUS’ WORDS AND STATEMENTS ABOUT THE COMING OF
THE APPOINTED TIME OF THE END AND HIS COMING AND ENDING OF THE
OLD SYSTEM AND PERFECT NATURE AND INTENSIFICATION OF NEARNESS
LANGUAGE AFFIRMING THAT’S HOW THEY UNDERSTOOD IT GUIDED BY THE
HOLY SPIRIT. SO MY QUESTION TO YOU NOW WOULD
BE, ARE WE TALKING ABOUT THE SECOND COMING?
ARE WE TALKING ABOUT THE RETURN OF CHRIST?
ARE WE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT?
THAN THAT. THAT’S HAPPENING HERE AT THE
APPOINTED TIME OF THE END. NOW, ALL-MILLENNIALIST SAY THIS
WAS THE COMING OF JESUS BUT NOT THE COMING.
POST- MILLENNIALISTS SAY THE SAME THING A COMING OF JESUS
BUT NOT THE COMING. ANOTHER SAYS IT WAS…
BUT NOT THE… PRE-MILLENNIALIST SAY THIS IS
NOTHING. THEY DON’T RECOGNIZE THIS OF ANY
KIND OF ANYTHING. AND PRETERITS SAY, THIS
WAS THE SECOND COMING. WHO IS RIGHT?
I WANT TO PROFESS TO YOU AND THIS WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO
TRANSITION TO OUR NEXT PROGRAM. NONE OF THEM ARE RIGHT.
NONE OF THEM.>>YEAH.
>>SO WE’LL PICK UP THERE.>>THAT’S GOING TO BE, YOU DON’T
WANT TO MISS IT. I’M TELLING YOU.
I KNOW WHERE HE’S HEADED A LITTLE BIT WITH THIS.
AND YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS. BUT TO ME, IT IS AN ABSOLUTE.
TO ME, THIS IS MORE SOLID THAN ANYTHING I WAS TAUGHT.
LET ME JUST SAY THAT, YOU KNOW, MANY OF YOU LISTENING HAVE
PROBABLY ONLY EVER HEARD ONE VIEW, FUTURE DISPENSATIONAL
VIEW. DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THERE WERE
SEVERAL VIEWS OF END TIME ESCHATOLOGY.
BEFORE I SEE ANY OF THIS I SEARCH IN THE SCRIPTURE AND COME
ACROSS THINGS THAT MAKE ME ASK QUESTIONS LIKE THIS GENERATION
WON’T PASS. YOU’LL NOT HAVE FINISHED GOING
THROUGH THE CITIES OF JERUSALEM UNTIL THE SON OF MAN COMES.
I WOULD ASK PEOPLE WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND NOBODY WAS ABLE TO GIVE
ME AN ANSWER UNLESS IT WOULD BE, DIDN’T WANT TO PUT YOU OFF AND
ANSWER. WE HAVE TO ANSWER THESE
QUESTIONS. AND I THINK THAT WHEN YOU SEE
THE PRECISENESS OF HOW EXACTLY IT FITS THE DATES, IT BRINGS ME
GREAT JOY TO THINK THAT THE LAST DAYS OF THE BIBLICAL LAST DAYS
ARE NOT IN OUR FUTURE. THEY ARE IN OUR PAST.
THAT ALL OF THIS HELL ON EARTH THAT PEOPLE ARE PROPHESYING
THAT’S COMING IS NOT IN OUR FUTURE.
IT’S IN OUR PAST. I BELIEVE THERE’S SOME VERY REAL
PROBLEMS GOING ON IN THE WORLD, BUT THE CHURCH IS THE ANSWER,
AND THE KINGDOM IS THE ANSWER TO THESE PROBLEMS.
IF WE COULD WAKE THEM UP TO NOT EVACUATE BUT EXERCISE THE
DOMINION MANDATE AND PREACH THE GOSPEL, I BELIEVE THE WORLD
COULD BE CHANGED. WE’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.
I REALLY WANT YOU TO TUNE IN NEXT WEEK AS WE CONTINUE THIS
CONVERSATION. YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS IT.
AND YOU’LL BE BLESSED. NOW, TAKE A MOMENT AND CALL THE
NUMBER ON THE SCREEN. AND GET BEHIND WHAT WE’RE DOING.
WE’RE SHARING SOMETHING THAT’S A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
IF YOU APPRECIATE WHAT WE’RE DOING, WE NEED YOUR HELP TO
CONTINUE TO DO THIS. WE APPRECIATE YOUR ENCOURAGING
CARDS, LETTERS AND YOUR FACEBOOK HITS WHEN YOU WRITE TO US ON OUR
PROFILE PAGE THAT YOU’RE LISTENING.
IT’S ENCOURAGING US TO CONTINUE THE HAVE GUTS TO STEP INTO
UNCHARTED WATERS AND SHARE THINGS THAT ARE A LITTLE
BIT DIFFERENT. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.
GOD BLESS YOU. UNTIL NEXT WEEK.
>>FOR ANYONE STRUGGLING TO UNDERSTAND JOHN’S WRITING IN
REVELATION, THIS BOOK PROVIDES TRUE BIBLICALLY-BASED ANSWERS
THROUGH DETAILED INSIGHTS INTO THE LETTERS JOHN WROTE TO THE
SEVEN CHURCHES OF HIS DAY YOU’LL LEARN HOW TO AVOID THE MISTAKES
OF THE EARLY CHURCH TO OVERCOME TODAY’S TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS.
THIS BOOK WILL PROVOKE YOU TO THOUGHT AND DIALOGUE BRINGING
GREATER CLARITY AND REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST. …
