In the second week of this new series, today’s services were about “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Confused).” This day was to help all of us who feel like we can’t figure out the details of Christ’s return.
Today, we worshiped to (links send you to iTunes):
- Forever – Chris Tomlin
- Marvelous Light – Christy Nockels version
- Revelation Song – Gateway Worship
- Beautiful – Phil Wickham
I loved hearing you people sing out today! What a powerful time. We have such a wonderful set of volunteers who play in the band, sing, and work behind the scenes – I am so thankful for you guys! You lead in worship whether you are on stage or behind it – thank you!
In Jeff’s message, he explained his personal views on the end times particularly concerning the tribulation and millennium. He admitted that he doesn’t hold the popular view of the day, but he presented a strong argument for it. I also appreciate how he differentiated that this interpretation is not a hill to die upon. Many godly people disagree how all this stuff comes out – the main thing to do is to make sure you are prepared whether or not you are caught up before or after any type of persecution. I love the point that any doctrine must be able to be preached in every country of the world.
So are you still confused? Or have you figured it all out?
Do you believe in historical premillenialism, dispensational premillenialism, amillenialism, postmillennialism, or preterism (I feel like I’m back in college again)?
Or are you a panmillenialist? My professor once said he was a panmillenialist – it’s all going to pan out in the end anyway.
All I know is that in the end, it’s not going to matter that I was a historical premillenialist or Jeff was a amillenialist or most Americans are dispensationlists. The most important thing is that we belong to Jesus when the end comes. Do you agree?
