Real life presents the Jack Hibbs podcast with intention and boldness to proclaim truth, equip the saints and impact our culture 

Here this loud and clear. In fact, modern day, liberal theologians. Hear this out in clearance. Those of you who are embracing replacement theology. Let me say this to that Terra, sea. If God does not fulfill every promise he has made to the nation of Israel, then we Christians have no promises at all. 

You can get the outlines of this podcast by going to Jack hibbs.com/podcast. Today. If this podcast lifts you up and encourages you to live a more fulfilled life in Christ, then make sure you leave us one of those five star ratings to us. That's like saying amen, or yes, then that rating will encourage others to listen. Now, open your hearts to what God's word has to say to you here is Jack Hibbs. 

Jesus said regarding all things remembered in John 14 one, let not your heart be troubled. So when you're hearing this message, you should get excited. So I know you get included. Look with what's coming. You can either get run over by it, or you can understand that God has spoken to you about these things and you can get excited about it because by the way, it's a big difference. It's a big difference on how you understand or how you view Bible prophecy with this beautiful caveat built into it. It's a verse. I think I've been used in almost every week during this series, Luke 2136, Jesus says to us, be always on the watch, pray that you may escape all that is about to happen and that you may be able to stand before the son of man that is at his coming, his appearing. So church, listen, I'm gonna ask you to write these down. I'm gonna give, be a string of verses and we're gonna get into our point. So you ready? I need to know. Can you say repeat after to me, I am ready. I 

Am 

Ready. Number one, Titus two 13. This is all preparatory Titus two 13, looking for the blessed hope. Every believer within the hearing of my voice, you are to be looking, scanning, observing the horizon for what the blessed hope. Let's see what it is. And the glorious appearing I'll argue with you today that it is not the coming of Christ, but the appearing of Christ big difference. The appearing of our great God and savior it's one and the same. Amen. He's one. And the same, I should say, who is it? Jesus Christ. This verse keeps cult members up late at night because it screams about the fact that the Christians to be watching constantly for his coming, which means there's no warning per se. Exactly. And then secondly, that he is the great God and savior because the Bible teaches there is no second or third. 

No wonder why Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life. And no man comes to the father, but through me, why? Because he is our great God and savior Jesus Christ. That's the great, great verse that you ought to have over you. Number two, listen to this. This is very, very much fun. I'm gonna give you five references. Each one from the five chapters of the book of Fon. When Paul preached in Felan, IICA, by the way, on one of those maps, I, I could have showed you where that is. Here's the thing though. When Paul came, preaching the gospel, he came into the region of Felan IICA and scholars all agreed that he was there somewhere between three to four weeks. That's it? He preached, there were no Christians. He preached pagans began to accept Christ. He set up a church and he moved on and three to four weeks later, or sometime later he writes them a letter. 

I should say, I think it was actually close to about a year. He writes a letter back to them because he heard that they were panicking, that they had somehow missed the last day's events. Notice this with me and I'm gonna make it pretty. What's the word demonstrative. I will really let you know, notice this, mark it down. First, eon chapter one, verse 10, wait for his son from heaven. You are to be waiting whom he raised from the dead. Even Jesus who delivers us from the Rath to come. You see the word Rath, you ought circle that. And you ought to say, this is not talking about hell. This word has nothing to do with hell. 

This word has everything to do with God's wrath. That's gonna be poured out upon the earth for a Christ projecting age or world. You need to know that it changes everything. If you understand that they were panicking and they were afraid and they thought they missed his appearing and that they were gonna be going through the wrath and the judgment of God. And Paul tells them Nope. Or in Hebrew it's low. I like that. Hello? Yes. Is Ken Ken? Hello? No, Paul, did we miss it low now? You didn't miss it. Keep looking, keep watching. First lesson on two 19 chapter two, verse 19 for what is our hope says Paul or joy or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord, Jesus Christ at his coming or at his appearing chapter three, verse 13, he says so that he may establish your heart's blameless and holiness before our God and father at the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ with all his saints. 

How many of you know, someone who died believing in Jesus, raise your hand. They died believing in Jesus. They're coming back with him. They that's the reference with all his saints. That's why you'll see in a moment, watch how this bills it's gonna explain what that means. What do you mean he's coming with all his saints? I thought she had asked chapter four, verse 13, but I do not want you to be ignorant or uninformed brethren. Those who have fallen asleep, let you sorrows others who have no hope for if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring hello with him. Those who sleep or died in Jesus. By the way, please remember sleep is referring to their bodies. Not their souls. There is no such thing in the Bible is so asleep. That's a cultic view and it's unbiblical verse 15 for this we say by the word of the Lord that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede. Those who are asleep, watch what happens. And this will prove the argument will what appears to be asleep. He's gonna tell us for the Lord himself will descend from heaven, with a shout, with a voice of the Ark angel and the trumpet of God. And here you go, the dead in Christ will rise. First. Their bodies will pop up out the grave, pop up. 

Hallelujah. 

You ever seen a, have you ever, have you ever bought a, I mean, you don't buy these things very often, but when you do, it's kind of cool. When you buy a new toaster. When do you buy a new toaster, but like twice in a lifetime. One of the great attributes of it, a toaster is that when you put the toast in and you toast it for the first time, you better be ready. When that thing's done, that toast comes flying outta there. You can even grab it In a moment in a twinkling of an eye, that toast comes shooting outta that toaster, according to the Bible, listen, God is gonna shout the voice of the, a age, the trumpet of God and boom, like a toaster forest lawn. Think about a rose Hills. Wow. Look at that. There's gonna be all these P tarts coming up 

Amazing. The Bible tells us then we, her live remains shall be caught up the word rapture together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus, we shall always be with the Lord, therefore, comfort one another. With these words, that should be a great comfort. Listen, let's be honest if you're a Christian, but you're, you're sleeping with bubbles or Rocky. And God has been saying to you, you ought not to be doing this, or you're getting, you know, dabbling back into the old world of drugs. But now you believe in Christ. And Jesus is saying, come on, get outta that. We don't do that anymore. Or you're snooping around and looking in places you ought not to be looking. And the holy spirit says, you belong to me now, stop it. You know what? Listen, what's what ought to be very comforting is when we say Jesus could come back today, you always see the Christian. 

Who's not walking right with God. They go like this. When you say, oh man, I hope the Lord comes back today. And they go, yeah. Okay. Right on really? They're a little nervous about, Hey man, the Lord can come back today. The only time I see hesitation with that is at a wedding. Before I walk out here with a, with a groom to be, I said, man, it'd be great. The Lord came back where we halfway way down the aisle, the Lord comes back and he goes, oh no. How about one more day? It's great. It's always, it's always fantastic. But the person that is the Christian, not walking with God, doesn't like to hear about this, but it's exactly what you need to hear. 

He could come back at any time. He wants you to love that hope also. And look, if you're not a Christian, you should just panic right now. Right where you're at. I mean, we've got defibrillators and nurses and doctors all over this place. You ought to have a heart attack. You gotta just have a heart attack right now. Cuz if you knew that you are one breath away from eternity called hell, you'd shut me up. You'd get up here. You'd get on your knee. You'd say get outta my way. Stop talking pastor. I need to get saved now before something happens. Think about that. It's exactly. 

And then first the Simonians 5, 9, 5 chapters, five exertions about his imminent coming for God did not appoint us to wrath. That is the wrath of almighty God, his vengeance that's coming upon the earth, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. That's great news. And so in our current global situation church, we see an awakening taking place in awakening. I don't mean just spiritually in all kinds of ways. This is how we know we are living in amazing days. When I say awakening, bear with me. When I say Iran, Persia is awakening. China is awakening. North Korea at this hour is awakening. Russia is awakening for the last four years. These players have been contained by large degree. You need to know that. So number one, we look at this in light of all that's going on and we're seeing saber rattling. We're seeing an awakening, all of a sudden of nations. Listen right now, as I speak to you, what is today's date? 24th, the 24th, mark your calendar. Look at James defense weekly, go to those websites, go to some of these websites, uh, go to the website proceedings by the us Navy, go to some of these websites and read some of the things that are going on. And you look around at the world. And all of a sudden in the last seven days 

Has been a bizarre global shift in the players. I just mentioned to you a moment ago, they were all back like a lion Tamer puts a lion back in its corner. They were like this. They weren't happy. They weren't going all good. He look at America's economy. It's fantastic. Oh, look at all the people going to isn't that great. They didn't do that. They were like this and they were held in place. And then all of a sudden things have been shaken. I'm talking about the hand of God. I'm not talking politics here. There's a reason for this number one. I want you to mark this down. What we know for sure is all I are on God. See, that's a huge statement. All eyes are not on God. This is what I mean by this. People are awakening. And they're asking questions about God in the end of the world. 

And what's up next. They're atheists asking the question. People are jarred in a recent poll. Some 70% of Americans thought that we'd be at war within a year with Iran. Persia. Not because we want to, but because of what they're doing, Isaiah chapter 45 verse 21 says who has declared this from ancient time and who has told it from that time? Have I not either the Lord that there is no other God beside me, just God and a savior. There is none besides me. Notice what he's saying. This is the result of that reality of that truth. Verse 22. Look to me and be saved. All you ends of the earth for. I am God. And there is no other in the midst of all the shaking that is now beginning to formulate in the posturing it's God's will right now that the world wake up to these things and understand God's in control. 

He knows exactly what's going on. It's been said that recent events, both in our nation and the world have revealed to us that we are all living an unprecedented time. That these times just might be with us for a while. Nobody wants to hear that, but they're starting to make comments. They're starting to say things and I've got news articles that I may or may not get to this week. But certainly by next week, people are beginning to question everything. And so we should, people are unsettled. People are looking for answers. And that's what I mean by all eyes are upon God. The book of Hagi chapter two, verse six and seven says Hagi 26. This is what the Lord almighty says in a little while. I will once more shake the heavens in the earth, the sea and the dry land. Listen, he's not, he's not poetically speaking here. This is not God writing a, a play. He means it. I will shake all nations. And what is desired by all nations will come. That's the hope of the gospel. I will fill this house. Speaking of his temple with glory says the Lord almighty. God knows what's going on in the nation's church. He knows what's going on. And there's a healthy and a much needed, oh no, I'm gonna get mail for this. There's a healthy and much needed division taking place in what is called church. 

It needs to happen. People groups, religions, This is necessary. It's increasing every week. We need to remember something that in Hebrews to 1228, Hebrews 12, 28, the Bible says, therefore, since we've received a kingdom, which cannot be shaken, isn't that great. Uh, let me interrupt myself right here. Right now. The world is shaking. Some people are shaking. God says, wait, wait, come to me. Let me hold you. Let me hold you. You don't, you don't need to shake your mind. Don't stop aching our little dog. She never shakes. But for some reason last night, you know how little dogs usually shake? She doesn't, She was shaking. It's too cold for her. So you know what? The moment we picked her up and held her about a, had to be, you know, a minute that she stopped shaking. She looked scared, but she was cold. There are people that are shaking today. They're Christians. They love the Lord, but doubt and fear has gotten into them. And they're shaking. And God is saying, come here, come, come, come here. It's funny, cuz he's saying, come here. And so you need to let him pick you up. And he says, listen, I'm going to 

Take care of you cuz my kingdom will never shake. But he goes on and the pastors that verse in Hebrews, he goes on and he says this. Therefore, since we have received a kingdom, which cannot be shaken, let us have grace by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. Oh my goodness. Godly fear is an awesome thing. Godly fear is godly all. Aw it's it means awe beautiful for our God is a consuming fire. It's the will of God that you come to the saving, loving and forgiving knowledge of Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior. This is the will of God. All eyes on God. People are getting the, and so they should Very important. 

I think we have a slide under this point. Is it number four? You guys is that what we're looking at? New York times May 15th, 1948, all eyes on God, people so utter about all eyes on God. Whoa, whoa, wait, wait. We've mentioned this before. We need to mention it again. Headlines Saturday in May 15th because Saturday May 15th follows Friday, May 14th, May 14th was the day that Bible prophecy was fulfilled in the New York times says Zionist proclaimed, new state of Israel, Truman recognized it right? Recognizes it and hopes for peace. Tel Aviv is bombed. Egypt orders an invasion. Did you know that Israel was attacked? One day after they were born, They had no army, But they won. How does that happen? God has done this. Absolutely amazing. You say, how does that play into anything? Plays into everything. Hear this loud and clear. In fact, modern day, liberal theologians. Hear this loud and clear those of you who are embracing replacement theology. Let me say this to that heresy. If God does not fulfill every promise he has made to the nation of Israel, then we Christian have no promises at all. He said his covenants with Israel was everlasting. He said, I will bring you back from the ends of the earth and place you in your own land. Once I begin to move, you saw the headline of a fact people look at it. Well, that's a nice headline. Are you kidding me? That's Bible prophecy fulfilled. We'll study it later. Isaiah's 66. But that's a fact, 

You know, what's awesome about that. Headline is you can look at the New York times on Saturday, May 15th, 1948 and say isn't God good. And mm, my Bible's true Because if God doesn't keep his promises to Israel, you ain't got nothing. How in the world would you expect to go to heaven? Who Jesus promised me? You don't have any promises because if the father can't keep him to Israel, then what responsibility does Jesus have to keep his promises to you? Thank God. He keeps his promise to Israel and he shall keep them. Remember we've been grafted in to what the Bible says is the Commonwealth of Israel. We're gonna go to heaven because the gospel came to Israel. First, We need to remember that
