Tuesday is for End Times Thought
Invasions of Planet Earth
(and maybe a preaching series for you pastors)
Invasion #1 Satan and Sin
A fallen angel used the beauty of a tree to entice Eve and Adam into disobeying God and seeking happiness by going against His will. The result was sin’s invasion of the world through the heart of man, producing the need for salvation from sin and a Savior who could conquer the effects brought about by sin’s entrance into the world.
Invasion #2 The Savior and Salvation
God the Father sent the Son to be the Savior and substitute for our own quilt and sin. Jesus came to save sinners like me, people who had lost their way and trashed their lives with choices outside of His will.
Invasion #3 The Spirit and Gospel Expansion
In the third invasion of planet earth, Holy Spirit come in fulfillment of Jesus’ promise to send a Helper who guides us into truth and empowers us to live transformed lives. God inhabits the believer in the person of the Holy Spirit and empowers our witness and life to bring maximum glory to the Son.
A Future Invasion
Invasion #4 The Savior’s Return in Glory
The invasion that will culminate in every knee bowing and every tongue confessing that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the praise and glory of the Father.
We are closer to that future invasion when the Savior returns to judge the living and the dead (2 Timothy 4:1). Let’s live with a sense of urgency and purpose (Luke 10:2).
Our Savior came: He lived; He died; He promised; He rose; He ascended; He’s coming. And that coming is sooner than any believe, though no one knows the hour.
