How to Hope: Lessons from the Israelites and Their Messianic Expectation, Part 34 (Second Coming Chapel Sermon #249)

TEXT: Psalm 72

1 Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.

2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.

3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.

4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.

7 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.

10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.

14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.

15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

18 Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.

19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.

20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

William Culbertson said, “There is an intimate connection between the life of the Christian here and the enjoyment and the glory in the day of Christ’s appearing.”

The great preacher F. B. Meyer once asked D. L. Moody, “What is the secret of your success?” Moody replied, “For many years I have never given an address without the consciousness that the Lord may come before I have finished.” This may well explain the intensity of his service and the zeal of his ministry for Christ.

In our last few messages in this series, we looked at the hope that we have for the Second Coming based upon the Covenant that God made with King David and the blessings He bestowed upon the Kingdom of Israel. First, we saw that Jesus’ reign will be a reign of righteousness. Second, we saw that Jesus’ reign will be a reign of peace. Third, we saw that Jesus’ reign will be a reign of totality.

Here are three more things we can learn from this passage about the coming reign of Jesus Christ.

First, Jesus’ reign will be a reign of compassion. Psalms 72:12-15 says, “For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper. He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy. He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight. And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.” When you go through the Gospels and look at Jesus’ ministry, you will see that he had a heart for the weary, the poor, the downtrodden, and oppressed. When the sick and disabled came to him and asked to be made whole, he was always willing to help them. He told the rich to give their belongings to the poor. Charles Spurgeon said, “Here is an excellent reason for man’s submission to the Lord Christ; it is not because they dread his overwhelming power, but because they are won over by his just and condescending rule. Who would not fear so good a Prince, who makes the needy his peculiar care, and pledges himself to be their deliverer in times of need? When he crieth. He permits them to be so needy as to be driven to cry bitterly for help, but then he hears them, and comes to their aid. A child’s cry touches a father’s heart, and our King is the Father of his people. If we can do no more than cry it will bring omnipotence to our aid. A cry is the native language of a spiritually needy soul; it has done with fine phrases and long orations, and it takes to sobs and moans; and so, indeed, it grasps the most potent of all weapons, for heaven always yields to such artillery. The poor also, and him that hath no helper. The proverb says, “God helps those that help themselves; “but it is yet more true that Jesus helps those who cannot help themselves, nor find help in others. All helpless ones are under the especial care of Zion’s compassionate King; let them hasten to put themselves in fellowship with him. Let them look to him, for he is looking for them.” We can look around us and see that the world is badly in need of Christlike compassion. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, as of January 2019, there are 70.8 million refugees worldwide, displaced by war, economic hardship, government oppression, or natural disasters. When we see the tears of pain in the eyes of the world, we can take comfort in knowing that Jesus will come to wipe them away.

Horatio Spafford wrote:

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door.” Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.

George Muller said, “There is an intimate connection between the life of the Christian here and the enjoyment and the glory in the day of Christ’s appearing.”

Samuel Rutherford said, “The figure of the passing-away world, 1 Cor. vii. 31. is like an old man’s face, full of wrinkles, and foul with weeping: we are waiting when Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, and shall come and wipe the old man’s face.”

In our last message, we continued looking at the hope that we have for the Second Coming based upon the Covenant that God made with King David and the blessings He bestowed upon the Kingdom of Israel. Last week, we saw that Jesus’ reign will be a reign of peace.

Third, Jesus’ reign will be a reign of totality. Our passage reads, “He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth. They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.” In our sin-cursed world, many of us fear the rise of totalitarian ideologies. We are worried about the increasing amount of government control and surveillance in our lives, especially when that government could very easily become antithetical to Christianity, like the government of China or North Korea. We worry about the possibility of a one-world government. We have good reason to fear overly-powerful authoritarian regimes, as long as they are run by depraved human beings. But a day will come when we will welcome an absolute world monarchy with open arms, because then the world will be run by the infallible King of kings. Just as the kings and queens of the ancient world made tribute and gave gifts to King Solomon, the presidents and prime ministers of the future will come from all around the world to Jerusalem to pay tribute to the Leader of the only one-world government worth obeying. The totality of Jesus’ rule will be a wonderful thing. Not only all crime, but all sin will be eradicated. Peace, righteousness, and justice will be the supreme law of all the lands of the earth. As this contentious election year approaches, take hope in knowing that whoever wins, there will come a time when all nations will serve and be led by the Lord of lords.

R.G. Staples wrote:

Jesus is coming, is coming again;
Shout the glad tidings, the good news proclaim;
Jesus is coming a King on His throne,
Jesus is coming to welcome His own.

Jesus is coming, redeemed ones, be glad;
Put on the garments of beauty— be clad;
Watching and waiting be, soon He will come,
Come in His grandeur to welcome you home.

Jesus is coming; O sinner, awake!
Free is salvation to all who partake;
Drink at the fountain that flows full and free,
Mercy and pardon are offered to thee.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven.

John Calvin said, “Let us not hesitate to await the Lord’s coming, not only with longing, but also with groaning and sighs, as the happiest thing of all. He will come to us as Redeemer.”

Dean Ulrich said, “Between the two comings of Jesus, believers experience what is often called the tension between the already and the not yet. Jesus’ followers can look back and see that D-day, the decisive strike, has already occurred and now guarantees thorough defeat of the enemy. Nevertheless, the time after the first coming and before the second coming involves ongoing warfare with the spiritual forces of darkness and their terrestrial supporters. V-day has not yet arrived, and so the potential for setbacks and defeats still exists. All too often, God’s people succumb to temptation and score a victory for the enemies of God. Still, the decisive strike at the first coming of Jesus guarantees ultimate victory at the second, and Jesus’ followers fight the good fight with assurance that God who has begun a good work at the first coming of Jesus will bring it to completion at the second.”

In our last message, we continued looking at the hope that we have for the Second Coming based upon the Covenant that God made with King David and the blessings He bestowed upon the Kingdom of Israel. Last week, we saw that Jesus’ reign will be a reign of righteousness.

Second, Jesus’ reign will be a reign of peace. If one keeps up with the news, it seems that the world is constantly on the brink of another world war, or at least a second cold war. While some of this is just fearmongering, the resurgence of Russia and China, the clashes with radical Islam, and the continuing tribalistic conflicts throughout the Third World nations show that the future of the world is anything but peaceful. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, many scholars declared the coming age of international American military dominance to be a “Pax Americana” or American peace. But just 10 years later, 9/11 shattered that illusion. Just as the Pax Romana and Pax Britannica before it, the Pax Americana is coming to a swift end. Many point to the rise of nationalism and isolationism in the US as proof of this, and many are worried about who will take America’s place on the world stage, if anybody. But regardless of what the future holds, we as Christians can take hope by knowing the a “Pax Christi” is coming, a reign of peace that will never come to an end.

Billy Graham said, “The second coming of Christ will be so revolutionary that it will change every aspect of life on this planet. Christ will reign in righteousness. Disease will be arrested. Death will be modified. War will be abolished. Nature will be changed. Man will live as it was originally intended he should live.”

In 1955, President Dwight Eisenhower was in Denver, Colorado, for a few days of business. In the Saturday morning newspaper, one of the president’s aids read a letter to the editor from a teenaged boy with cancer, named Paul Hailey, who expressed his dream of someday, somehow, someway meeting the President of the United States. After showing the article to the president, Mr. Eisenhower told the aide to have his car ready for a visit to the boy’s home early on Sunday morning.

At 6:30 on Sunday morning, the president walked to the door of the Hailey’s home and knocked. A sleepy eyed, unshaven David Hailey was shocked at the president’s visit and interest in meeting his son. After meeting and talking with Paul, Mr. Eisenhower took the boy outside to the limousine to meet his wife before their departure.

The next day, newspaper reporters asked David Hailey what he thought about the president’s visit to his home. The father said he was not too happy because he was not prepared. They then asked the son his opinion of the visit. Paul, the son, said he was ecstatic because he had longed for the day he might personally get to meet the President of the United States.

Are you prepared should Jesus return today? We are not looking for a visit from the President of the United States. We are looking for the return of the King of Kings for His bride, the Church!

In our last message, we continued looking at the hope that we have for the Second Coming based upon the Covenant that God made with King David and the blessings He bestowed upon the Kingdom of Israel throughout the reign of Solomon.

Let’s continue looking at some background information about this passage from the Bible Knowledge Commentary: “Because of his magnificent and righteous reign, people would respond with gifts for him, with prayers on his behalf, and with blessings on him. The people would pray for agricultural prosperity, with grain and fruit in abundance. Lebanon, with its cedar forests, was a picture of a flourishing land. The blessings of such a king’s rule are reciprocal; he blesses the nations (perhaps through trade and peaceful alliances) and they in turn speak well of him. They include words of praise to the Lord God of Israel and the request that His glory be evident everywhere.

Although this passage was written about the reign of King David, there are several things that we can learn from this passage about the coming reign of King Jesus.

First, Jesus’ reign will be a reign of righteousness. The world today, especially the Western nations, are moving away from what God has declared to be righteous. Not only does our society increasingly condone sin, it approves of it and celebrates it. Those who hold to Biblical beliefs on morality are derided as hateful bigots. Our leaders, even the ones who claim to be Christian or support Christian values, are oftentimes morally bankrupt. One satirical website described Christian involvement in American politics by saying “Christians Face Clear Choice Between a Party That’s a Hypocritical Mockery of Their Faith and a Party That is Openly Hostile To It.” But when it seems that society has abandoned righteousness for indulging in sin, we can find hope in looking forward to Christ’s reign of righteousness and find the courage to continue standing firm in support of Christian values and mission.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

How to Hope: Lessons from the Israelites and Their Messianic Expectation, Part 30 (Second Coming Chapel Sermon #245)

TEXT: Psalm 72

1 Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.

2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.

3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.

4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

5 They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.

7 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.

9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.

10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

12 For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.

14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.

15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

18 Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things.

19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.

20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

Billy Graham said, “Our world is filled with fear, hate, lust, greed, war, and utter despair. Surely the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is the only hope of replacing these depressing features with trust, love, universal peace, and prosperity.”

Someone has imagined the convalescent traveler able to sit in the doorway of the inn, earnestly looking up the road. waiting for the return of his deliverer. He could say, “He promised to come again. I know he will keep his word. I want to be waiting and watching for him when he returns.” Is not this the attitude in which every redeemed sinner should be found—daily waiting for “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and… our gathering together unto him?”

In our last message, we looked at how the hope that we have for the Second Coming based upon the Covenant that God made with King David. That theme continues in our next passage in this series.

Let’s look at some background information about this passage from the Bible Knowledge Commentary: “Two psalms are attributed to “Solomon.” If Psalm 72 is his, it may describe his reign. Also it speaks of the millennial reign of the Messiah. The psalm describes the blessings that flow from the righteousness of God’s theocratic ruler. The psalmist fully expected that the king would reign in righteousness and peace on behalf of the oppressed, and that his dominion would extend over many kings, from sea to sea. The psalmist prayed for the blessing of peace and prosperity, basing his appeal on the fact that the king is a savior of the oppressed and is therefore worthy of honor, power, and dominion. The psalm opens with a prayer that God would give the king divine ability to judge righteously. The psalmist anticipated that the king, ruling in righteousness, would bring prosperity and peace. Also he would judge on behalf of the afflicted and the needy and punish those who exploit the poor. Preferable to the words He will endure is the translation, “You will be feared”. Taken that way, the verse refers not to the human king but to God who endures through all generations. Or if the NIV rendering is accepted, then the thought may be that the king’s name or reputation endures for generations. When a king’s reign is righteous, his rule is refreshing to the people. Like rain on soil, an upright ruler enables the righteous to flourish and prosperity to abound. The psalmist anticipated that his kingdom would extend from sea to sea and from the Euphrates River around the world. People who live in the wilderness would bow before him, and his enemies would be humiliated in subjection (lick the dust). Kings on distant shores would bring tribute to him and bow before him. These kings would come from faraway places, including Tarshish (possibly Tartessus in southwest Spain), Sheba (present-day Yemen in southwestern Arabia), and Seba (in upper Egypt). The psalmist explained that the king was worthy of such dominion (v. 8) and the honor given him because he was a savior for the oppressed. He will deliver the needy and the destitute who cry to him. He will take pity on the weak and rescue them, considering their blood precious to him. Because of his magnificent and righteous reign, people would respond with gifts for him, with prayers on his behalf, and with blessings on him. The people would pray for agricultural prosperity, with grain and fruit in abundance. Lebanon, with its cedar forests, was a picture of a flourishing land. The blessings of such a king’s rule are reciprocal; he blesses the nations (perhaps through trade and peaceful alliances) and they in turn speak well of him. They include words of praise to the Lord God of Israel and the request that His glory be evident everywhere. Verse 20 states that this ends the prayers of David. However, this probably refers to an earlier collection of psalms, because 18 other psalms after this one are attributed in their superscriptions to David.”

Although this passage was written about the reign of King David, there are several things that we can learn from this passage about the coming reign of King Jesus.

First, Jesus’ reign will be a reign of righteousness. The world today, especially the Western nations, are moving away from what God has declared to be righteous. Not only does our society increasingly condone sinfulness, it approves of it and celebrates it. Those who hold to Biblical beliefs on morality are derided as hateful bigots. Our leaders, even the ones who claim to be Christian or support Christian values, are oftentimes morally bankrupt. One satirical website described Christian involvement in American politics by saying “Christians Face Clear Choice Between a Party That’s a Hypocritical Mockery of Their Faith and a Party That is Openly Hostile To It.” But when it seems that society has abandoned righteousness for indulging in sin, we can find hope in looking forward to Christ’s reign of righteousness and find the courage to continue standing firm in support of Christian values.

Second, Jesus’ reign will be a reign of peace. If one keeps up with the news, it seems that the world is constantly on the brink of another world war, or at least a second cold war. While some of this is just fearmongering, the resurgence of Russia and China, the clashes with radical Islam, and the continuing tribalistic conflicts throughout the Third World nations show that the future of the world is anything but peaceful. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, many scholars declared the coming age of international American military dominance to be a “Pax Americana” or American peace. But just 10 years later, 9/11 shattered that illusion. Just as the Pax Romana and Pax Britannica before it, the Pax Americana is coming to a swift end. Many point to the rise of nationalism and isolationism in the US as proof of this, and many are worried about who will take America’s place on the world stage, if anybody. But regardless of what the future holds, we as Christians can take hope by knowing the a “Pax Christi” is coming, a reign of peace that will never come to an end.

Third, Jesus’ reign will be a reign of totality. In our sin-cursed world, many of us fear the rise of totalitarian ideologies. We are worried about the increasing amount of government control and surveillance in our lives, especially when that government could very easily become antithetical to Christianity, like the government of China or North Korea. We worry about the possibility of a one-world government. We have good reason to fear overly-powerful authoritarian regimes, as long as they are run by depraved human beings. But a day will come when we will welcome an absolute world monarchy with open arms, because then the world will be run by the infallible King of Kings. Just as the kings and queens of the ancient world made tribute and gave gifts to King Solomon, the presidents and prime ministers of the future will come from all around the world to Jerusalem pay tribute to the leader of the only one-world government worth obeying. The totality of Jesus’ rule will be a wonderful thing. Not only all crime, but all sin will be eradicated. Peace, righteousness, and justice will be the supreme law of all the lands of the earth. As this contentious election year approaches, take hope in knowing that whoever is inaugurated, there will come a time when all nations will serve the Lord of Lords.

R.G. Staples wrote:

Jesus is coming, is coming again;
Shout the glad tidings, the good news proclaim;
Jesus is coming a King on His throne,
Jesus is coming to welcome His own.

Jesus is coming, redeemed ones, be glad;
Put on the garments of beauty— be clad;
Watching and waiting be, soon He will come,
Come in His grandeur to welcome you home.

Jesus is coming; O sinner, awake!
Free is salvation to all who partake;
Drink at the fountain that flows full and free,
Mercy and pardon are offered to thee.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

How to Hope: Lessons from the Israelites and Their Messianic Expectation, Part 28 (Second Coming Chapel Sermon #243)

TEXT: Psalm 2

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

——-

Billy Graham said, “When Christ comes again — as he repeatedly promised to do — he will come through the heavens with glory and power, accompanied by a host of angels. All the earth will see His coming, and even His enemies will realize they have been opposing the Son of God.”

In the days before Connecticut became a state, the colonial legislature was in session when a thick black cloud blocked out the sunlight. Someone shouted, “It is the Day of Judgment Let’s go home and get ready.” But one member of the legislature, who happened to be an old church deacon, stood up and said, “Brethren, it may be The Day of Judgment–I do not know. The Lord may come. But when He does, I want Him to find me at my post, doing my duty up to the very last moment. Mr. Speaker, I move that candles be brought in and that we get on with the business of the colony.” In the same way, as we have seen tonight the signs are pointing to the fact that Jesus could return at any moment. But until He does, our duty as His servants is to make the best use of our talents and our opportunities. We need to continue doing the business of His Kingdom, by sharing the Gospel message of His Love and His Grace with everyone that is lost and dying in their sins.

By way of introduction, the Bible Knowledge Commentary continues, “God’s reaction is stated in human terms. Based on His contempt for their evil plan God will speak in His burning wrath against them. Probably verse 6 summarizes what He says, for His resolution to install His king in Jerusalem will be the end of their rebellion. Zion, referred to 40 times in the Book of Psalms, was originally a Canaanite city conquered by David. Later Zion referred to the temple area and then to the entire city of Jerusalem. Holy hill is a synonym for the temple mount. When God establishes His king, He also subjugates those who oppose His king. It was true with David; it will also be true at the end of the age with David’s greater Descendant, Jesus Christ.”

In our last message, we looked at how the hope that we have for the Second Coming based upon the Covenant that God made with King David. We continue that theme in this message. This passage is about King David, but from it we see several parallels to King Jesus and His future kingdom on earth. Notice three points from this passage:

First, the enemies of the Lord. This passage describes how the rulers of the nations surrounding Israel plotted to conquer God’s chosen people and dethrone King David. Even so, today’s society rebels against God’s Word and His authority. In Revelation, we see the armies of the world, led by the AntiChrist, who gather to “make war with the Lamb” and “gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army.”

Second, look at the assurance of Christ’s reign. All the armies of the world cannot stand against the King of the World. This passage tells us that the heathen nations are imagining a vain or futile thing when they plot to overthrow God’s Anointed. “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.” The Lord has decreed that Christ is King and shall take the heathen nations of the earth as His inheritance when the time is right. When we as Christians feel marginalized by a society that promotes and celebrates sin, we can take hope in knowing that the earth is the Lord’s, and He will eventually come to claim it.

Now, if you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, I urge you to trust in Him because He is coming again and you do not want to be left behind. Here is how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and the consequences of sin.

First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.

Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! Congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.
