Revelation (Program #21) – God’s Preservation of His People

In both the Old and New Testament, the Bible points to a Coming Day. This is often referred to as the Day of the Lord or the Coming Day of the Wrath of the Lord.  It is like that will be like no other, as it ushers in God’s wrath upon the fallen and rebellious earth. When is this day?  And what affect will it have on us?  We will look more closely at the Day of the Lord and how God will preserve His people on that day.

2 Peter (Program #11) – The Divine Government (4)

The apostle Peter tells us in chapter 3 of his second epistle that the day of the Lord will come as a thief  and that we should expect and hasten the day of God.  The apostle Paul on the other hand refer to today as “man’s day” in 1 Corinthians 4:3, where man is put in the place of judgment.  But the day is coming where the Lord will judge and that day is called the day of the Lord or the day of God in 2 Peter chapter 3.

1 Thessalonians (Program #15) – Cooperation with the Divine Operation (1)

As we are caring for new believers, we likely often follow the pattern of the apostle Paul as he cared for the young Church in Thessalonica by giving them encouraging and hopeful passages from the Bible.

In the Thessalonians, it was Paul’s word concerning the coming rapture of the believers at the end of the age and the Lord Jesus promise return from the heavens to the earth that fill them with hope. But if we are fully faithful  to the pattern of the apostle will also bring them to the words of warning and sobriety that Paul concluded the book of 1 Thesssalonians with Chapter 5. Listen to this lengthy passage at the beginning of Chapter 5 of 1 Thessalonians 1-11:

But concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need for anything to be written to you; For you yourselves know perfectly well that like a thief in the night, so the day of the Lord comes. When they say, Peace and security, then sudden destruction comes upon them, just as birth pangs to a woman with child; and they shall by no means escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness that the day should overtake you like a thief; For you are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. So then let us not asleep, as the rest do, but let us watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep during the night, and those who get drunk are drunk during the night; But since we are of the day, let us be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love and a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath but to the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us in order that whether we watch or sleep, we may live together with Him. Therefore comfort one another, and build up each one the other, even as you also do.
