|Matthew 24 & 25||David Niednagel||06/10/2018||Watch||In Focus||Listen||Notes
There is something you should fear more than war
Daniel 9:24-27 written in 540BC. Jesus believed Daniel was accurate.
Next, Jesus moves from telling what will happen and when, to explaining lessons and application. Are you ready to hear it? Have you decided what you will do when He tells this next part? Who do you believe Jesus is?
What generation is Jesus speaking about? His generation? Or the end times? Both. The terrible destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70 was a foretaste of the future.
See 2 Peter 3:9-12 for an explanation of this.
They were preoccupied with daily life and not thinking about “judgment day.”
He uses his position for his own benefit, and not the master’s.
Why is Jesus so angry about hypocrites?
Wise people plan for problems and inconveniences. They allow for “margin”.
They were more focused on themselves and their schedules than on His coming.
He could have pleased his master, but he didn’t even try. His “fear” was an excuse and did not excuse his failure.
There will be terrible consequences for those who do not take Him seriously.
Those who truly know Him will gladly serve Him till He returns.
Five expectations Jesus specifically said:
How should we live in light of this prophecy?
Have you called on His grace for your salvation?
Have you turned from all known sin, living a self-controlled, upright and godly life?
Are you zealous for a life of purity and good works?
Are you calling others to repentance and trusting Christ as Savior and Lord?
