This study, taught by pastor Barry Forder at our Sunday morning service on Sunday 6th March 2016 is the 9th in our verse-by-verse study through the book of Revelation.
In this study we begin to look at ‘the beginning of sorrows’. This is a phrase given to us by Jesus in Matthew 24, when He was explaining to the disciples the events that would take place immediately before His return.
Much of the church today tends to ignore prophecy, or at least, put it to one side, deeming it to be ‘difficult’, ‘hard to understand’ or even divisive! In ‘The Purpose Driven Life’, a book embraced by many churches both in the UK and in America, pastor Rick Warren made the following incredible statement: “When the disciples wanted to talk about prophecy, Jesus quickly switched the conversation to evangelism. He said in essence. “The details of my return are none of your business.” – yes, pastor Rick says the details of Jesus’ return are not for us to worry our little heads over! Err…. Excuse me! In the words of an old Christian song “If the Bible don’t back it then it seems quite clear, perhaps it was the Devil who whispered in your ear!”
Seems to me like pastor Rick and those who subscribe to views like this should spend less time on motivations pep talks and get back to what the Bible actually says!
