“It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.” (Acts 1:7)
Odds are, you’ll hear about Harold Camping this week and his prediction that the world is going to end on Saturday, May 21st. More than 3,200 billboards across the world boldly proclaim that this Saturday is “Judgment Day.”
Our time together at Laurel Canyon last Sunday evening was devoted to exploring three fundamental questions that revolve around the second coming of Jesus.
- Has it already occurred?
- If not, when will it occur?
- In the meantime, what should I be doing?
This was actually Part 3 in a 4-part series of sermons investigating the A.D. 70 Theory, a complex assertion that the second coming of Christ, the resurrection of the dead, the end of the world, and the judgment all occurred in A.D. 70 at the destruction of Jerusalem. I’ll have more to say about the theory and this series of sermons next week. In the meantime, you might find Part 3 of the series informative and helpful in light of Camping’s prediction. It was a great opportunity to compare two theories of men with what God has revealed in his Word.
In your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect. (1 Pet 3:15)
Here are Parts 1 and 2 of the A.D. 70 Theory series:
