Living as Lights in a Dark World – Week 2: 

Living as Lights in a Dark World – Week 2 “God allows life to be rocky. His challenge is not to let the rocks grind you into dust, but to polish you to become a brilliant gem.” --Unknown

Last week…: 

Last week… We discussed many of the prophesies establishing the fact that we are in the last days or end times; -Israel gathered back into Palestine (1917) -Middle east being the focus of the worlds attention -And many more, including apostasy in the Church…

Slide3: 

2Th 2:1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2Th 2:2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 2Th 2:3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,

Rev 3:15 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. Rev 3:16 'So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Rev 3:17 'Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, Rev 3:18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Rev 3:19 'Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. Rev 3:20 'Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. :

Jesus wants to know you! He cares about you and whatever your going through today! If you are just ‘playing church’, today He is knocking on the door of your heart. Today is the day of Salvation. You can experience His love, Grace, Forgiveness, and peace! Joh 7:37 Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. :

Slide6: 

Last week I made the challenge that it is time to get right with God. It’s time to fulfill the great commission. Let’s look at some more prophesy from scripture this morning…

MK 13:7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. MK 13:8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. : 

MK 13:7 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. MK 13:8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.

There are more wars being fought today simultaneously than at any other time in history! Rumors of wars and retaliation has become the topic for most anthropologists and students of world events. Not only do we have nations fighting, but kingdoms are now fighting – democracy versus communism and the ‘axis of evil’. “War on terror”, etc. Now Israel is preparing for war with Syria, and the US is looking at Persia and Syria as the next step on the war on terror.:

MK 13:8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains. Up until 1965 there were several states that had never had an earthquake. However, they began to increase in the 70’s. One of the last was Wisconsin. It had one in 2000. Last year we had earthquakes occurring in geographic locations that typically do not experience them!:

MK 13:9 "You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them. MK 13:10 And the gospel must first be preached to all nations. This hasn’t happened yet! We now have Missionary outreach that exceeds what the Church has ever been able to do before! We are able to travel to and fro across the earth! :

Dan. 12:4 Men will be traveling ‘to and fro’ across the world, knowledge will increase. Men are going ‘to and fro’ more today than any other time in history. With the internet, our knowledge of any subject is easily obtained – our knowledge has truly increased – but we still are not coming to the truth… :

2Ti 3:1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2Ti 3:2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 2Ti 3:3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 2Ti 3:4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 2Ti 3:5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 2Ti 3:6 For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, 2Ti 3:7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. :

We will see the rise of Babylon… -We are now the ‘head’ of Babylon! Babylon – world language – Gen. 11:1-9, Is. 47, Dan. 12:4, Col.3:5,6, Matt. 24:37-41 Interesting to note that English is the language of the world now. Most countries teach English in their schools.:

The World against Israel Syria is organizing a summit of Arab nations to join together against Israel! <<Ez. 32:18+;38, Ps. 118:10+, Luke 21:20, 2 Chronicles 15:6; Isa 3:25-26; 8:21-22; 13:13; 29:3; Jer 20:4-5; 34:17; 52:4; Ezek 4:1-4; Dan 9:26-27; Hos 9:7; 14:1). The UN is against Israel. The US was the only member of the UN to not vote against them – we abstained! Zec 12:2 "Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. Zec 12:3 "It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. :

The world is polarizing into what the Bible said would happen in the last days. 1. The Middle East would be a focal point. 2. Arab nations would be together against Jerusalem. 3. Men would leave the Truth for a lie:

The Bible says the ‘Big Bear of the North’ will also be with these Arab nations… · Russian President discussed the worsening situation in the Mideast during a 40-minute phone call with the Syrian President on Sunday, the Kremlin press service said. The press service gave no details, saying only that they discussed the "drastic aggravation of the situation in recent days" in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and promised to continue developing ties between Moscow and Damascus. Russia is supporting Syria with arms and training. :

Syria warns U.S. of a new Vietnam MITCH POTTER IN SYRIA DAMASCUS—American forces in Iraq are unwittingly marching into a "small-scale Vietnam" that won't begin until U.S. victory is declared, a senior Syrian official warned yesterday. And mounting U.S. losses will continue long after the Iraqi regime is gone until the last American soldier leaves the country, said Syrian Information Minister Adnan Omran. "The day they defeat the Iraqi regime and take control is the day the disaster begins," Omran told the Star in a private briefing. :

Syria Warned by the US Donald Rumsfield “ If Syria continues bringing guns and supplies to Iraq, we will consider it a hostile act, and those bringing the supplies combatants.” :

Syria is also threatening Israel and supporting the terrorists who are waging Jihad on them. Amos 1:3-5 States that Syria will come against Israel four times, and then will be made desolate. These occurred in: 1948 (1st) 1967(2nd) 1973(3rd) and the 4th appears that it could happen at any time! Damascus is the capital of Syria. It is the oldest perpetual city in the world! It is over 5000 years old! :

Is. 17:1 States that Damascus will be taken away from being a city and become a ruinous heap - this has not happened yet, but will very soon!! Isa 17:3 "The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, And sovereignty from Damascus And the remnant of Aram; They will be like the glory of the sons of Israel," Declares the LORD of hosts. :

In 1973, Israel came with 20 kilometers of Damascus - Russia stepped in and informed the world that if they continue, it will be world war three. If Israel had destroyed Damascus then, this prophecy could not have been fulfilled! Additionally, Russia is backing Damascus - when Damascus attacks Israel again, it will be destroyed, and it will cause the prophecies in Ez. 38 and 39 to be fulfilled - Russia, the bear of the north along with Muslim nations will be forced to attack Israel, but God will intervene! :

[AP]ISRAEL HEADS FOR WAR WITH SYRIA & IRAN TEL AVIV [MENL] -- Israel's military has been preparing for the increasing prospect of a war with Syria in a confrontation expected to include Iran and Hizbullah. The General Staff has discussed an assessment by the military's Northern Command of an emerging threat from Syria and Hizbullah over the next year. Northern Command said a weakened Syria, under pressure from the United States to withdraw from Lebanon, was likely to approve an Iranian-Hizbullah campaign against Israel. Military sources said this assessment was the latest by several senior officers who envision a major war with Syria by 2007. :

Israel warned Damascus In addition to the warning to Damascus, the IDF has begun preparations for a "worst-case" outcome. Ten days ago, an armored division received an emergency order that moved it to the Golan Heights, on the border with Syria, to reinforce troops based there. Israel also placed its submarine flotilla on high alert. Military sources said three German-built submarines - the Tekuma, Dolphin and Leviathan -- had started a 21-day shift in the Persian Gulf. The submarines are believed to be equipped with nuclear warheads, but would only come into play in the event of an all-out regional war, according to sources. :

When Syria attacks Israel and is destroyed, Russia will have to intervene - scripture tells us they will be drawn down to attack Israel as if being hooked and pulled down. The hook is that they pledged to protect Syria! Ezek. 38:4-15 Russia is pulled down to attack Israel. Ezek. 38 and 39 describe the whole battle. Zech. 14:12 - their flesh will consume away - could be a neutron bomb - Remember how they have to bury the dead! Ezek. 39:9-10 Israel will burn the weapons for 7 years! Therefore, this must take place PRIOR to or at the start of the Tribulation. The burning of the weapons should be complete before the second coming of Jesus Christ. Ezek. 39:11-16 It will take 7 months to bury the dead! They will wait 7 months to start - they will send teams in to ‘tag’ bones left on the surface and teams to bury those bones - could this be a result of chemical or nuclear weapons? Russia has supplied the Arab world with weapons and men every time they attack Israel! Most of the countries that are mentioned are Islamic/Moslem countries today. They include Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan,Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Libya, Ethiopia, and possibly part of Sudan. Remember, Syria is not mentioned because it is already destroyed. (Ez.38:8) Ezek. 38:23God will intervene in this battle and receive glory – however, this sign will allow Jews to embrace the anti-christ. :

Who is the Roman Empire?: 

Who is the Roman Empire? Rome was influenced by Hellenistic (Greek) thought. It was a democratic society It had, as it’s major purpose, world peace. Sound familiar?

“ Americans should not expect one battle, but a lengthy campaign unlike any other we have ever seen…What is at stake is not just America’s freedom. This is the world’s fight. This is civilization’s fight. This is the fight of all who believe in progress and pluralism, tolerance, and freedom.” President George W. Bush September 20, 2001 Much of the World’s governments want to come together. It is in the United Nations charter and their ultimate agenda! Rev. 17: 17 "For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. :

Definition of Pluralism: Theory that there are more than one or two kinds of ultimate reality Varieties of ultimate truths available No one absolute truth Exercised in the form of… …Tolerance ! In Oct. 2000 the UN had a summit for all the religious leaders of the world - they signed an agreement basically affirming there are many ways to God and that all religions should come together:

Since pluralism says there are no absolute truths… …NEW tolerance states, “All values, beliefs, lifestyles, and truth claims are equal” Now we must agree that another person’s position is just as valid as your own – even if it is based on Biblical Truth! Now you must give approval, endorsement, sincere support to their beliefs and behaviors. This is setting the stage for the anti-christ! :

This leads to Pluralism in societal laws. Abortion, moral relativism, etc. “If there is no absolute moral standard, then one cannot say in a final sense that anything is right or wrong.” [Francis Schaeffer] Isa 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isa 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight! Isa 10:1 Woe to those who enact evil statutes And to those who constantly record unjust decisions, Isa 10:2 So as to deprive the needy of justice And rob the poor of My people of their rights, So that widows may be their spoil And that they may plunder the orphans. Isa 10:3 Now what will you do in the day of punishment, And in the devastation which will come from afar? :

We must stand for truth in these last days! Law of Non-Contradiction: Two contradictory ideas cannot both be true Joh 14:6 Jesus *said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Are events lining up with scripture? It appears the stage is set for all end time prophecies to become fulfilled! It’s time to get right with God!: 

Are events lining up with scripture? It appears the stage is set for all end time prophecies to become fulfilled! It’s time to get right with God!

The events taking place in the world today are preparing the world for the completion of the prophecies in the Bible. The World is looking for someone to bring peace to the middle east. That someone is the anti-christ. He will confirm a 7 year treaty with Israel: in Dan.9:27 Dan 9:26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined. Dan 9:27 "And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week” This will begin the 70th week of Daniel (the Tribulation). :

A.W. Tozer said this to the Church of the last days… The wise Christian will be content to wait for that day. In the meantime, he will serve his generation in the will of God. If he should be overlooked in the religious popularity contests he will give it but small attention. He knows whom he is trying to please and he is willing to let the world think what it will of him. He will not be around much longer anyway, and where he is going men will be known not by their Hooper rating but by the holiness of their character. :

Matt. 10: 16“Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves. 17“But beware of men, for they will hand you over to the courts and scourge you in their synagogues; 18and you will even be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 19“But when they hand you over, do not worry about how or what you are to say; for it will be given you in that hour what you are to say. 20“For it is not you who speak, but it is the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you. 21“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22“You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. 23“But whenever they persecute you in one city, flee to the next; for truly I say to you, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel until the Son of Man comes. :

Conclusion Hebrews 10: 19Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, 20by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; 24and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. :
