Stop trying, and start training
- Personal football story of never losing
- Trained in the wrong thing, our focus was on the wrong prize
- Precisely our problem
The How is easy
Rapture – 1 Thessalonians 4:16 (NASB)
The When is equally easy
We focus on How and When
- Even Jesus doesn’t know the exact day
- No exact time – Mark 13:32 (NASB)
Age is now
- All the saved are going to Heaven
- Does the exact time matter?
- Is my neighbor?
- That guy at the gym I don’t talk to?
- My daughter’s teacher?
Who gets left behind because of you?
- Without a doubt, when the rapture hits, I am going to Heaven
- Who are you bringing to Heaven with you?
- Until the end of the age (end time)
- But God’s command doesn’t change
- You need to make sure they talk to Jesus
- Matt 28:19-20 (NASB)
- We are in the End Times
- Only God can write someone’s name in the book of life
- Change your focus
- Focus on getting to Heaven long enough to know that you are going
- Then Shift your focus
- End times
- We are in the end times
- Quickly running out of time to fulfill the great commissio
