In this series Pastor Doug delivers an amazing step-by-step picture of Bible prophecy, proving that Scripture can indeed be trusted and showing that the second coming of Jesus is much nearer than many think.
The Bible speaks of great kingdoms of this world that will come and go. There is only one kingdom that will last forever, the Kingdom of Heaven. The focus of this sermon is Daniel 2 and a colossal image dreamed about by Nebuchadnezzar. It outlines the major kingdoms of the world. Will you be a part of the final kingdom?
The most important series of prophecies in the Bible speak of Jesus, the one and only true Messiah. Who was Jesus? What does the Bible say about Christ? He claimed to be from heaven and to be divine. He came from the lineage of Abraham and David. Christ came to be our example, to show us the Heavenly Father, and to be our substitute. He took our sins and gave us His righteousness and life.
What is the battle of Armageddon? The Bible speaks about this great battle in Revelation 16. Is it an meteor that will strike the earth? Will it be a titanic battle that will take place in literal place in the Middle East? It takes place in the midst of the seven last plagues. It is not a political battle, but a spiritual battle between good and evil.
This sermon focuses on Revelation 12 and a woman and a dragon. What does this apocalyptic prophecy mean? What are the 1,260 days mean? A woman symbolizes the church in the Bible. The great dragon in this chapter is identified as Satan.
This sermon covers three subjects in one: the millennium, death, and hell (the lake of fire). There are many interpretations of when the millennium happens and what happens during this time. The Bible teaches that Jesus will come, the dead in Christ will rise, and they live with Christ for a thousand years. Satan will be bound with his angels on this earth. He is not in charge of hell, but will be thrown into the lake of fire.
Who is the antichrist? This sermon delves into Revelation 12, 13, and 17 along with Daniel 7. The animals spoken of represent nations and kingdoms and powers. A beast power will arise that has and will persecute the people of God. The power combines religious and political powers at the end of time.
What does the last Old Testament prophecy of Elijah returning mean? The Bible teaches that John the Baptist came in the spirit and power of Elijah. There is no greater prophet for he introduced the Messiah. We too must hear the call of Elijah to our hearts and turn to Jesus. Baptism symbolizes our commitment to Christ.
The story of Daniel's friends in Daniel 3 teaches us historically about a spiritual truth: someday we will be compelled to worship the beast. We may have confidence that when we go through the midst of fires, God will protect us. The Sabbath commandment, which revolves around worship, will be a critical issue at the end of time.
This sermon speaks about the tree of life in both Revelation and Genesis. We once had access to the tree of life, but lost that privilege. The Bible is about God's plan to bring man back to the tree of life. One of the teachings of Scripture to help us begin to enjoy a healthier life is to take care of our bodies and eating good food. The Bible actually has guidelines on healthy living.
The Bible speaks of God sealing 144,000 at the end of time. Who are these people? They are sealed by God. The Lord's seal is the Sabbath as found in the fourth commandment. In the last days Satan will seek to deceive people and turn them away from God by offering a false sabbath. It appears this group is a representative group, but salvation is not limited to this number. This sermon also touches on heaven.
