Sermon Title: “The Great Tribulation”
Apostle David Watkins, Preaching
Scriptures: 2 Thess 2:7-8, Joshua 24:15, Matthew 21:13, Luke 12:51-53, Rev. 4:4, Rev. 21:12, Rev. 19:7, Isaiah 54:5-6, Rev. 2:10-11, Rev. 2:17, 26-28, Rev. 3:5, 12, 21, 1 Cor. 3:12-15, Rev. 5:1-5, Rev. 6:1-2, 2 Thess 2:4, Daniel 11:21,23, Daniel 9:27 and Genesis 29:18-27
These events will occur in this order: 1) The Rapture (the sign that the 2nd coming is near), 2) Great Tribulation (For unbelievers…God wants the believers to escape this, so the Rapture is first and 3) Millenium (1000 year reign of Christ)
What makes you unfaithful? What are you doing that makes you unfaithful? COMPROMISING for our friends and family or on our jobs, etc.
GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD! Don’t let another god into your house! (Joshua 24:15, Matthew 21:13, Luke 12:51-53)
Although we grieve when we lose loved ones, what is GOD is being merciful in allowing them to die before the Rapture?! The dead in Christ shall rise and be with Him!
During the Great Tribulation, “He that letteth, will no longer let…” Let is a word that means RESTRAIN.
We are the Holy Ghost restraining power! This is why we are called haters, because we hate SIN! But, are we restraining as we used to or are we compromising?
Rev. 21:12: stands for the 12 apostles and the 12 tribes of Israel
Rewards for Overcomers: Crown of righteousness, crown of life (Rev. 2:10), crown of glory, escape the 2nd death (Rev. 2:11), eat of the hidden manna (Rev. 2:17), pillar in the house of the Lord and God’s name written upon him (Rev 3:12), granted to sit with God on his throne (Rev. 3:21), white raiment, etc.
BE AN OVERCOMER!!! Don’t be weary and don’t quit! GET TO THE END!
Our bodies will be changed to live in Heaven for eternity or to endure the lake of fire for eternity!
Two of the 4 Judgments: 1)The Rapture and 2) Receiving rewards in heaven according to your works!
Rev. 4:4…the judgment of the saints will be immediately after the Rapture.
You get into heaven by being saved by grace but you get rewards by works
Our works will be tried by FIRE! (1 Cor 3:12-15)
God gave man dominion over the Earth.
Rev. 5:1-5: Who was worthy to open or look at the scrolls? (JESUS)
THE SEALS: Rev. 6:1-2 (The first seal…the white horse is the Anti Christ…perpetrating power)
Rev. 19:11 JESUS on the White Horse!
Resist the devil and he will flee! To resist the enemy is to Disagree! Greater is HE that is in me than he that is in the world.
Satan LOVES to come to church, too. IT is his battlefield where he tries to get the people to leave God and to quit.
Antichrist (2 Thess. 2:4, Daniel 11:21, Daniel 9:27 (“he will make a covenant for 1 week=7 years and ½ week=3.5 years) and Daniel 11:23.
Scriptural background for meaning of one week:
Genesis 29:18-27 (Jacob worked for Rachel for 7 years)
Genesis 29:18 (One week=7 years…Jacob was asked to work for her for one more week=7 more years)
Next Sunday’s sermon: The Millenium
