WHEN WILL THE END COME?

More from Alan Kurschner of Eschatos Ministries:

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole inhabited earth as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matt 24:14).

Here we have another explicit prophecy that must happen before the end: the gospel being preached “throughout the whole inhabited earth.” Since Jesus taught in the Great Commission that the church will be on earth up to the end of the age, they will witness the fulfilment of Jesus’ prophecy of the world-wide proclamation of the Gospel. Five words demonstrate this point: “then the end will come” (Matt 24:14). The church will not be removed until this prophecy is fulfilled. The church will not be raptured until this prophesied event happens.

On a related noted, having established that the church will be present on earth up to the end of the age in verse 14, notice in verse 15 Jesus says, “Therefore [oun] when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place…” The interpreter should not miss that Jesus has the same audience in view after verse 14. In verse 15, Jesus begins to describe the Antichrist’s great tribulation in more detail. There is no justification to claim that the referent “you” in verse 15 and afterwards is different from the “you” before verse 14. In other words, the disciples, who represent the new community of God (i.e. the church), are the consistent audience of Jesus’ entire discourse. In short, since the “you” before verse 15 represents the church, there is no reason—except for theological bias—that it represents anyone differently in verse 15 and afterwards.

The church will see “the abomination of desolation (Antichrist)  spoken of by Daniel, standing in the holy place”.

The question to ask: Is the church prepared for the coming tribulation? I think the answer is no for most of the major denominations, and it will be the reason for the prophesied great falling away. ” Let no one deceive you by any means for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed , the son of perdition. ” 2 Thess. 2:3. We are already seeing evidence of an apostate church.

PROCLAIMING THE GOSPEL OF THE COMING DAY OF THE LORD AT AN ABORTION CLINIC

Alan Kurschner of Eschatos Ministries is joining our group (www.powerpointsermons.net) to provide resources  for the “last days” church. Alan is an academic. Take a look at his bio: He holds an MA in biblical languages (Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary), graduate studies in New Testament (Harvard Divinity), and a BA in philosophy (University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire). He is a PhD candidate studying Greek linguistics (McMaster Divinity College). Areas of research include Greek linguistics, the book of Revelation, eschatology, and hermeneutics. He also runs the Center for Learning Biblical Greek. At the same time, Alan understands the need to heed Jesus command to evangelise the lost, and importantly, the value of proclaiming the coming day of the lord. I hope you will be challenged as I was by the following report.

Part of Eschatos Ministries’ mission statement says that we exist to proclaim the Gospel of the second coming of Jesus to the lost. Jesus did it. So did his disciples, including the apostle Paul. We must do the same. Jesus is coming back either as Savior or Judge.

This morning some church friends and myself went to the largest abortion clinic in New Jersey telling people to repent of their sins because the return of Jesus is nigh.

Some mocked. Some were indifferent. Some listened.

Many babies this morning were murdered being torn apart or burned to death by the abortion “doctor.” Satan was certainly not bound in the abyss this morning! Abortion is unabated Satanic activity.

But thanks be to God, one of the many women who entered the abortion mill heard the gospel message and changed her mind, and got her money back. The gentleman with her came out and hugged Rob Parker for vocalizing the message through the abortion doors (he is in the photo standing next to the door with the placard). Pray that this woman’s conviction is genuine and that the Spirit will convert her to Christ.

I was able to have some fruitful discussions with several people, including an Uber driver who dropped off a mother to kill her baby, sadly. The driver was receptive to the gospel. Pray that the Spirit will convict him. His Word does not return void.

It is always a special unction to get out on the streets proclaiming God’s message to the lost of how they can have true peace, lest they experience the soon-coming day of the Lord’s wrath. “Look! I am coming soon, and my reward is with me to pay each one according to what he has done!” (Rev 22:12)

Pray that God restrains the wickedness of abortion in this land and bring repentance to abortion doctors and the politicians who support and celebrate their monstrosity of evil.

If you live in North Jersey and belong to a Bible believing church come join us. You can contact me for details.

“Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, and he had an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language, and people. He declared in a loud voice: “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgement has arrived, and worship the one who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water!”” Rev 14:6–7

CHURCH HAS LOST FAITH IN THE SUPERNATURAL

Great message from Francis Chan on what the church has lost and how we need to take it back from the enemy. Knowing what God promises is the key. Supernatural power is available when we are in God’s will. We need church like in the Book of Acts when Holy Spirit power was evident. Sharing possessions like the church in the Book of Acts. The church is one, like Jesus prayed to the Father for, so the world would believe.

TRUE FACE OF ISLAM

Rita Chaima radiates with joy. When you see her face, you can tell she’s filled with deep happiness and contentment.  But that’s the opposite of the way she used to feel. Chaima was raised a Muslim, and from an early age she struggled with suicidal depression.  She tells her powerful story in a new documentary called “In His Footsteps” by a ministry called The Last Reformation.

Rita Chaima 2

“I just saw a cruel world and I didn’t want to be a part of it,” she recalls.  Chaima says she tried to kill herself three times. “I was doing drugs, I was smoking, I was smoking anything… I just wanted to destroy myself.”  At one point she became so angry that she made up her mind to join ISIS in Syria. “I hated people who weren’t Muslim. I wanted to kill them,” she says. The videos by ISIS-inspired her. “I loved to see them bleeding. I was seeing videos of decapitation and loved it.

But then something else happened. Her mom got a bunch of free books for her, and there was a Bible among them. That’s when Chaima met Jesus.

“I started to read the Bible to prove to Christians that they were wrong,” she says. “But I was wrong! And the grace of Jesus Christ started to touch me.”

“I was reading things like ‘pray for your enemies,’ ‘love them,’ and I was someone who wanted to kill them. Intellectually, I didn’t want to accept Jesus, but Jesus started to do a work in my heart,” she says. She couldn’t resist the love of Jesus anymore, so she decided to follow Him.

When she told her family what she had done, they rejected her. She says they stopped talking to her, and for months she was alone in her room. “It was like a prison.”

She says in the past, depression would have overtaken her. But not this time. She started to read the Bible a lot. “Jesus was there with me. He was encouraging me. The Holy Spirit was really there. I felt it, I knew it.”

Her Muslim family has now totally abandoned her, but her story doesn’t end there.

When it was time for Chaima to be baptized, something supernatural happened.

“I don’t even remember what I did. I had to see the video of my baptism. I was completely crazy, the demon was crazy, it wasn’t me. I kicked Jon. He baptised me. I kicked him.” But as she flailed and screamed, Jon continued to minister over her, telling the demon to go until peace finally came over her body. She was finally set free and baptised in the Holy Spirit.

“After the baptism I felt like the heavy weight completely disappeared. And I was so excited to go and make disciples,” she said.

“I started to want to talk about Jesus to everyone, even to the people who led me to terrorism. I wanted to go and see them, tell them that they are wrong, and that love is waiting for them.”

And that’s just what she now does, traveling with gospel minister Peter Ahlman and other Christians, she shares her testimony wherever she goes.

You can watch her testimony below through an excerpt from the “In His Footsteps” documentary by The Last Reformation.

THOUSANDS GATHER IN THE STREETS OF UKRAINE TO PRAISE JESUS

The streets of Kiev filled with songs of praise and thanks as roughly 200,000 evangelical, Ukrainian Christians gathered to celebrated the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Once again, it is another “end times” sign as we see prophecy being fulfilled. “And this gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14 This once communist nation where the gospel could not be preached is now exporting missionaries worldwide.

“Many travelled from all four provinces there just to be a part of that celebration, to thank God for the freedom to worship, to thank God for the freedom to preach the Gospel in their country, and to celebrate God’s faithfulness,” Sergey Rakhuba with Mission Eurasia told Mission Network News.

The gathering came after Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko signed an order recognizing the anniversary of the Reformation.

“It was so exciting to see on the screen of my computer where I was watching young people with so much joy. They glorify God in the midst of their capital. This was the same place where they were protesting just a few years ago fighting for their freedom. But, also, this is the place where many years ago, Communists would force people to demonstrate and propagate Socialism, Atheism, Communism, and other ‘isms’ in their country.”

Rakhuba says young people are the key to spreading Protestantism in Ukraine.

“That’s what Mission Eurasia is doing, working with the next generation, those who take the baton, those who get into the generational gap and take the Gospel to their communities,” he says.

Young people aren’t just spreading the gospel in Ukraine, now they’re exporting missionaries throughout the world.

“I just talked to a group of young people, they just came to this celebration from their mission trip to Mongolia in China — young Ukrainians who felt like the Holy Spirit was leading them to take the Gospel to Mongolia where they reached thousands of young people through summer camps!”

Ukraine may still be in the middle of a war with Russia, but it is growing leaps and bounds spiritually.

“Ukraine is still in the midst of war. Eastern Ukraine and territories are still occupied by Russian or pro-Russian separatists. Crimea was annexed by Russia. So yes, Ukraine is struggling politically, economically, but Ukraine is striving today spiritually, pleading to God to bless that nation,” Rakhuba says.

JESUS SAID, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.

JESUS SAID, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME. JOHN 14:6

IN HIM WAS LIFE, AND THE LIFE WAS THE LIGHT OF MEN. AND THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS, AND THE DARKNESS DID NOT COMPREHEND IT. 1 JOHN 5:4
THE THIEF COMES ONLY TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY. I HAVE COME THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE AND THEIR LIFE MAY BE FULL. JOHN 10:10
In English our Saviour’s name is JESUS, but it is actually YESHUA which means “YAHWEH IS SALVATION”.
Jesus is the only redeemer. Your sins can be forgiven only through believing that he died on the cross for your sins. Yes, only by accepting Him as our redeemer and saviour that we can be saved. There is no other way of forgiveness from sins. The deceiver, Satan, and his demons will say there are many other ways of salvation, even ways to comfort the spirit of the dead, but all in vain, only Jesus can save us. Also, there’s no second chance or third chance for salvation after death. Some people pray that the souls of their deceased family members will be saved. But really, this is deception of the enemy. By declaring and prophesying the word of truth in season, we are confronting the deception of the enemy. So let’s declare that Jesus is the only way, and the truth and the life, and be one of the workers to bring in the harvest.
THEN JESUS SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, THE HARVEST IS TRULY PLENTIFUL BUT THE WORKERS ARE FEW. MATTHEW 9:37 

 

CHRISTIANITY IS GROWING FASTER THAN THE WORLD POPULATION

Listen to Steve Strang of Charisma Media interview Loren Cunningham, Founder of YWAM and be encouraged. God is at work all around the world, especially where committed Christians are praying. Christianity is growing faster that the world population. Listen to what Loren is saying is needed to complete the Great Commission and play your part in these “last days”. What could be better than hearing Jesus say, “well done good and faithful servant, come and enter into the joy of the Lord”.

PROPHECY – IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS

“The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy.” Rev. 19:10

The following is taken from Nelson Walters website http://www.thegospelintheendtimes.com. I have been following Nelson for a number of years and believe God is using him to alert the church in the “last days”. Nelson has just agreed to become a Board Member of a new service, I believe God wants us to provide His church: http://www.powerpointsermons.net. It is early days, as yet, but take a look and give us your feedback.

Back to Nelson: All prophecy is about Jesus and the gospel. The church has lost sight of this. Hopefully, we can regain it. I believed that teaching about the end times was irrelevant and God changed my mind. Jesus opened the scriptures to me as he did with the disciples on the Emmaus Road. He did this so I could write to you and so you then could tell others. It’s simple; it’s not rocket science!

Our Deliverer is Coming! Jesus is about to undo all the tyrannical systems that men have developed over six thousand years .  He is the deliverer of the poor, the oppressed, the enslaved and the broken; and he is coming soon!  King Jesus will reign with justice and mercy.  The end-times are not about the brief birth pangs for that is only part of the process – the end-times are about the birth of his eternal kingdom of righteousness! Jesus is returning to the earth at a specified place. The same place He departed from, the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

mount-of-olives-the-place-of-gods-coming-going-and-coming

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor.  He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God; …for I, the Lord, love justice.” (Isa. 61:1-2, 8 NKJV)

At the cross, Jesus set us free spiritually.  At his second coming he will set us free physically.  Everything wrong is about to be made right.

At Pentecost, Peter quotes the prophecy (Acts 2:15-21 NRSV) that foretells the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost plus a darkening of the sun and a blood moon (both on the day of Jesus’ death). He is saying: You have seen all these things since Jesus was crucified. The listeners were cut to the heart because they had seen them! The result was three thousand souls saved in one day. Prophecy = saved souls.

This website will show that specific and significant earthshaking events are about to occur according to prophecy in these years prior to the tribulation and the rapture. Christians across the globe can use these scriptures containing fulfilled prophecy to reach millions of the lost, but only if they know the prophecies. If the church is unaware of the prophecies, a major source of revival is lost. What is our responsibility to let them know? You may be asking, “Why don’t I know these prophecies?” Yes, we explain that on this website as well.

Encouragement of the Saints

Fulfilled scripture will have a glorious effect on the saved as they know that prophecies leading up to Christ’s return are happening before their eyes. How many lives might change as believers turn from self-absorption to focus on their Master’s business?  Prophecy = saved souls.

The Great Apostasy

 The Bible is clear there will be a great falling away from the faith.  Paul has written that this great apostasy precedes the revealing of the Antichrist  (2 Thess. 2:3).  Jesus’ own words are “The love of most will grow cold” (Mt. 24:12 NIV).  If the church is prepared for the deception that is coming, how many churchgoers might be spared? What responsibility do we have to prepare them?

At the mid-point of the Olivet Discourse, Jesus told a brief parable about the need to be watchful.

But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.  For this reason you also must be ready. (Matt. 24: 43-44 NASB)

The “heads” of God’s “house” on earth are you and I, the leaders of the church.  I believe this passage teaches that we have personal responsibility to be watchful so that our churches do not suffer loss.  We must do what we can to prevent our adversary from “breaking into” our churches and causing church goers to stumble.  This website goes into considerable detail about this parable and about the Great Apostasy.  Prophecy = saved souls.

Sanctification

After presenting his prophetic teaching in the Olivet discourse, Jesus began to apply it. In the parable of the faithful and the evil slaves he equates not thinking about the master’s return with unrighteousness:

But if that wicked servant says to himself, “My master is delayed,” and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eats and drinks with drunkards … (Matt. 24:48-49 ESV)

Peter speaks of the connection between prophecy and godly living as well:

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.  Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. (2 Pet. 3:10-12 NIV)

Teaching about our blessed hope energises the church and is the factor that helps us keep our eyes on Jesus. Most of my pastor friends instinctively know that living righteously before the Lord certainly saves souls. Right now some are afraid to follow through. Despite their reluctance: prophecy still = saved souls.

This is God’s equation. This is his heart. This is why a quarter of the Bible is prophecy. “The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” How did we forget that as a church? Come join me on the journey. At least bookmark this website. You might want to refer back if you see those earthshaking events we will be talking about begin to happen.

Next we will see how to implement God’s equation, prophecy = saved souls.  We will also present all the major themes in this website and how  they relate to God’s heart for the lost.

Have I sparked your interest in connecting with Nelson’s website. I hope so.
