This broadcast is not about predictions, nor is it about setting dates as some foolishly have done, however it is all about preparation.
PROPHECY HEADLINES: Israel alarmed as Iran and world powers explore nuclear compromises | Arabs say strikes in Yemen will continue until rebels surrender | Putin tells Arab League he supports state for Palestine with capital in East Jerusalem | Nasrallah rages against Saudi airstrikes in Yemen; Says Israel is the enemy | Attacks against Christians in India increase by 55% since Modi election
The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:2: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”
PROPHECY BOOTCAMP: Our topic for today is titled “Worthy is the Lamb!” (Part 3) from Dr. Ed Hindson’s book “Revelation: Unlocking the Future”.
Hearing the announcement that the “Lion from the tribe of Judah” can open the book, John brushes his tears aside and turns to see the Deliverer. Bruce Metzger writes, “What follows is altogether unexpected. John looked to see the Lion, the king of beasts. and instead he sees a Lamb with the marks of slaughter upon it!”
The symbolism of the lamb emphasizes the ultimate triumph of the sacrificial death of Christ. The symbol of the lamb appears twenty-eight times in the Revelation. His death is the only atonement for sins that God the Father will accept. The issue is not whether your religion satisfies you, but whether it satisfies God! And God is only satisfied with the blood atonement of Jesus Christ. His Son. That sacrifice alone can pay the sinner’s debt, satisfy the demands of divine justice, and set the sinner free.
OCCUPY TILL I COME: “Waiting on the Second Coming — Stand Firm (Part 1)” by Ray C. Stedman
————If you are not ready for the return of Jesus Christ, may I encourage you to get ready today by receiving Him as your Savior.
First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…” Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Now that is bad news, but here is the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.
Romans 10:9-13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Keep looking up for your redemption draweth nigh. Let us join in the prayer of John the Revelator — “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” God bless you.
