On Sunday, January 12, 2020 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a sermon based on Matthew 24:15-31. This message was part 2 of the “Tomorrow” sermon series. Below are a set of questions related to that message for personal reflection or group discussion.
- Read Matthew 24:15-31
- In what way does knowing Jesus will come back “Tomorrow” give you hope today?
- In the last 7 years of human history . . . in the time right before Jesus comes back to the earth . . . the earth will experience the hardest days that it has ever seen. What are some of the “hardest things” this planet has undergone in your lifetime? In human history in general? Knowing the difficulties that have already transpired, what does that tell you about the time that really will be “the end”? (a time that Jesus calls worse than anything else in human history).
- What are some of the false gods that people are tempted to worship today? How do you manage to keep your focus on the “one true God?”
- What are some examples of people in history who have tried to tell others that they are the “savior”? In what ways is Jesus different from those “false christs”?
- When Jesus comes back, no one will “miss it” as many did at His first coming. However, the response of humanity will vary from “mourning” to being “gathered.” Have you placed your faith in Christ, so that you might be gathered at His second coming, instead of “mourning” because judgment will soon follow?
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
