03:58 pointers as to how to behave as a we’ve
04:02 even Christians Christians those who

04:23 expectation watching and constant watch
04:26 having done all stand in constant
04:31 expectation of Christ’s return of the
04:34 day of the Lord and having all natural
04:38 desires lust desires bride under under
04:45 in subjection to Christ under the
04:51 control of our Lord Jesus Christ when
04:56 Christ will come when the day of the
04:59 Lord is no man knows so don’t listen to
05:04 anyone who tell you it’s tomorrow it’s
05:06 then no man knows his coming will be
05:11 sudden sudden
05:22 overtaking many falling upon many who
05:28 are in the midst who are in the middle
05:30 of building up their worldly security
05:34 and being joy in the world and bringing
05:41 them destruction destruction from which
05:46 there is no escape looking at times and
05:55 seasons 1st Thessalonians 5 verse 1 but
05:59 about the times and their order my
06:02 brother’s about when the day of the Lord
06:05 is there is no need for me to say
06:09 anything to you times and seasons when
06:19 they say there is peace and no danger
06:23 when the unbelievers say there is peace
06:25 and no danger then sudden destruction
06:27 will come on them as birth pains on a
06:31 woman with child and they will not be
06:33 able to get away from it but let’s let
06:39 us who are of the day of our Lord Jesus
06:42 Christ be serious be serious focused
06:48 putting on the breastplate of faith and
06:51 love and on our heads the hope of
06:55 salvation oh I knew I knew a little bit
07:01 a clarification of the armor of God for
07:12 God’s purpose for us is not wrath it’s
07:16 not destruction but salvation through
07:21 our Lord Jesus Christ for God so loved
07:25 the world that He sent His only begotten
07:27 Son so that all who believe in him might
07:31 not perish but have eternal life
07:38 Jesus His Son Jesus the vessel of the
07:44 full glory of God the image of God
07:48 Emmanuel God with us Jesus who was put
07:54 to death for us so that awake or
07:58 sleeping we may have a part in his life
08:02 awake or sleeping it is all done by the
08:09 grace of God by the grace of God so have
08:17 joy at all times keep on praying give
08:25 praise at all times for every little
08:28 thing for this is the purpose of God in
08:32 Christ Jesus for us to give praise to
08:36 the king of kings don’t quench the light
08:43 of the Spirit never try to dampen the
08:47 spirit in yourself or in someone else
08:53 never try to bring the spirit under your
08:55 control bring everything that you have
08:57 under the control of the Spirit don’t
09:05 belittle the words of the prophets don’t
09:09 disregard them and let all things we
09:13 tested and keep keep doing what is good
09:19 in Jesus mighty name now how will that
09:25 they come how did they come the word
09:31 says as the teeth usually comes in the
09:35 dead of the night without no one
09:37 expecting it that’s the surprise for the
09:44 ungodly 1st Thessalonians 5 verse 2 says
09:49 for you yourselves have the knowledge
09:51 that the day of the Lord will come like
09:54 a thief in the night but for us who
10:02 believe who believe in the Word of God
10:08 who are seated in Christ who are
10:14 overflowing with the Holy Spirit it is a
10:22 joyous a joyous an expectation filled
10:27 with joy for we expect his return at any
10:31 time and if we are in trouble are at
10:37 peace with the world it doesn’t matter
10:43 for our joy is our happy expectation of
10:47 his coming we can’t be surprised we
10:52 won’t be shocked we have our affairs in
10:56 order or spiritual affairs the trouble
11:01 the peace the world the world will be
11:05 the world ready for the day of the Lord
11:14 the day of our Lord Jesus Christ the day
11:18 of the Lord in Revelations it says I
11:22 think it’s chapter 21 he will come in
11:25 clouds of glory rewarding every man for
11:35 his work the day of the Lord the day of
11:43 the Lord is near but realized two things
11:48 to God a breath is like 10,000 years and
11:52 ten thousand years is like a breath the
11:56 day of the Lord is near
12:02 but realize that no man knows of the
12:06 hour or the time or the date no man the
12:14 day of the Lord is near but in
12:16 Revelations it is said that his stool
12:19 last Saints his to last prophets were
12:23 killed in the streets of the big city
12:26 before he came realize all these things
12:35 before you run after and don’t run after
12:39 people who say specific date for it is
12:42 impossible according to the Word of God
12:46 it’s as simple as that because it has to
12:51 be sudden without anyone expecting it
12:55 that is the whole purpose of it find out
12:59 who really loves God who has really been
13:02 waiting and watching and standing in the
13:05 gap and looking for the coming of our
13:08 Lord there will be no warning there will
13:13 be no warning the suddenness of the day
13:21 of the Lord the coming the second coming
13:23 of Jesus comes with assurances to those
13:29 who believe in him who are in communion
13:33 with him constantly no matter what is
13:36 going on in their lives Matthew 24 verse
13:38 twenty thirty eight Matthew 24 verse 38
13:43 because as in those days before the
13:46 overflowing of the waters before in the
13:52 days of Noah because as in those days
13:55 before the overflowing of the waters
13:57 they were feasting and taking wives and
14:01 getting married till the day when Noah
14:03 went into the yard the sign of Noah is
14:10 the sign of the second coming of the
14:13 Lord
14:14 in the Old Testament in New Testament
14:17 Moses o Lord says Moses testifies of me
14:22 Moses testified of the second coming by
14:27 giving the sign of Noah God God showed
14:32 already what would happen those who
14:35 believe and were righteous through fate
14:38 Noah those would be taken up on the
14:47 waters that destroyed everything every
14:50 life it is a sign of the second coming
14:58 of our Lord Jesus those who believe who
15:03 have faith in Him who are accounted
15:06 righteous through faith as in those days
15:11 before the overflowing of the waters
15:14 they were feasting and taking wives and
15:18 getting married till the day when Noah
15:20 went into the ark and it started to ring
15:28 like a thief in the night without
15:30 warning everyone was going about
15:34 securing his worldly affairs Matthew 24
15:39 verse 43 but be certain of this that if
15:43 the master of the house had had
15:46 knowledge of the time when the thief was
15:49 coming he would have been watching and
15:52 would not have let his house be broken
15:55 into it will come that day will come as
16:02 a thief in the night so be always
16:04 watching having done all stand stand
16:09 keep watching keep praying keep
16:15 increasing your fate keep going to Jesus
16:20 for all things
16:25 Luke 1729 but on the day when lot went
16:34 out of so Dom fire came down from heaven
16:37 and disruption came on them all so will
16:43 it be in the day of the revelation of
16:46 the Son of Man there another sign from
16:51 the Old Testament about the second
16:56 coming of Jesus realize that three
17:02 angels let’s just call them angels for
17:07 now when we go through that will will go
17:09 deeper into rudos who they were they
17:16 came from heaven they went into sodam
17:22 and took out again salvation those who
17:29 were righteous through faith in God took
17:32 them out and destruction came on
17:42 everyone in that city but I think
17:46 everyone here under the power of the
17:48 voice of our lord knows what was going
17:51 on but what I want to point to what I
17:57 want to make clear is that there are
17:58 several places in the Old Testament
18:02 which point to the second coming of our
18:05 Lord when everyone will be rewarded
18:10 according to their work
18:20 the Bible says the world spends its days
18:24 in sleep sleeping Oh sluggard and in
18:32 drunkenness and what those words mean is
18:37 that the world is indifferent to the
18:41 things of the Lord the world is enjoying
18:45 sensuality and sensuality is much more
18:50 than sexuality sensuality is just
18:53 pleasures of the flesh whether that be a
18:57 mink coat a beautiful car a diamond ring
19:02 fake nails hair someone’s here the
19:12 latest Jordan or converse tennis shoes
19:18 sensuality but believers and followers
19:24 of Christ I called on to be soldier-like
19:29 disciplined disciplined ready and on
19:37 watch ready seeking whom they might help
19:45 see the light of Jesus and always
19:50 watching for that day when the Lord
19:53 comes in clouds of glory
20:07 and as we watch as our focus is turned
20:12 to him this is what Paul says Jesus who
20:20 was put to death for us so that awake or
20:25 sleeping so that whether we be awake
20:30 during the day or asleep whether we be
20:35 alive in the flesh or dead we may have a
20:40 part in his life we have no worry we
20:46 have no fear of death because whatever
20:50 happens as we are when we are away
20:55 communing with him so we will be we will
20:59 just be translated from one state to the
21:05 other always in Christ 1st Thessalonians
21:11 5 verse them together those who are
21:18 alive and those who are asleep those who
21:20 have gone before us and ourselves and
21:23 maybe it is us who have gone before
21:25 those who are awake at the coming of our
21:30 Lord but together all of us all of us
21:35 who are in communion with Christ will
21:43 have a part in his life eternal life
21:48 that what we call death but the Apostle
21:54 Paul calls its sleep
22:03 is a terror to the world people get in
22:08 panic when they come in a situation
22:11 where they might die but to us who
22:15 believe on the Lord it is an opportunity
22:19 to live is Christ to die is gain because
22:24 then we’ll come nearer we call it asleep
22:31 arrest arrest because the resurrection
22:37 the exceeding power of god the
22:39 resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ
22:42 has taken away the destruction of the
22:48 spirit out of the hands of the enemy so
22:54 we only fear Him who has the keys to
22:57 life and that we only worship our Lord
23:04 Jesus and God there is life in him
23:13 whether we are awake or asleep just
23:18 being constant communion with him so
23:22 that at the moment whatever happens if
23:24 we might die we died in him and so we
23:29 are assured that at his day on his day
23:33 on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ we
23:37 will all be together all those who are
23:42 in Christ that is or assurance that is
23:47 our hope that is the promise of God unto
23:50 all who believe in him amen amen
24:04 first Thessalonians 5 verse 14 says and
24:07 our desire is that you will keep control
24:11 over those whose lives are not well
24:15 ordered giving comfort to the feeble
24:19 hearted supporting those with little
24:21 strength and putting up with much from
24:24 all some have taken these verses to rule
24:32 over others this is not the will of the
24:36 Lord the Lord has explicitly stated that
24:41 ruling over one another is not his will
24:44 he is the head control keep control is
24:54 explained in this verse keep control
24:57 means ministering to one another
25:01 ministering to one another keep control

25:14 feeble hearted to the week giving

25:36 and putting up with much from all
25:42 patience and long-suffering that is what
25:47 it means to have control for once you
25:50 have control in that way it is the Lord
25:53 Himself who is ruler and master of all
25:57 who keeps them in check in control

27:10 the Spirit do not quench the spirit
27:14 don’t cover up the things that the
27:17 spirit in do it is doing and you are in
27:20 others don’t belittle the words of the
27:23 prophets the true prophets let all
27:31 things be tested there comes the true
27:33 prophets let all things we tested for
27:38 the word is clear whatever someone says

27:54 what is good keep from every form of
27:59 evil and as we grow to fulfill all these
28:06 things which are one then feeling of the
28:11 Holy Spirit we keep praying and asking
28:15 for the Holy Spirit the fear failing
28:20 full of joy constantly prayer giving
28:24 thanks in everything loving with the
28:27 unquenched fire of the Holy Spirit

28:46 happens and every word against that
28:56 which the Lord has said already
28:58 steadfast always trying to do good and
29:05 standing standing against evil this is a
29:13 I will say it this is such a high
29:18 standard it is impossible to achieve it
29:22 without the Lord Himself the Lord
29:26 Himself being in you in the form of the
29:29 Holy Spirit it is impossible without him
29:35 it is impossible but when you get to
29:41 that point that you were truly
29:43 surrendered surrender all your thoughts
