Matthew 24:14-22

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them

that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

There is going to be great pain and suffering on this earth before the second coming of Christ. It will be so bad that God will have to shorten the days just so that some people will make it though alive. Before this happens though it says that the gospel must be “preached in all the world.” This is happing now. The Church of Christ with the Elijah Message is taking the true gospel to all the people of the world. If you want more information about that gospel please feel free to e-mail us at

Matthew 24:4-13

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

In the verses above Christ start painting a dim picture of what will happen before his return. We can start to see this in today’s world, but it all has not happened yet. Things will get much worse before Christ returns. I am not trying to negative but realistic. We have to prepare our hearts and our lives for we know not what will happen to us. The last verse is one of most importance. We have to endure to the end. Either the end of our lives or the end of life on earth as we know it.

Matthew 24:34-39

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

With all the talk this weekend about the end of the world that was supposed to happen Saturday it is a great time to look at when Christ said he would come back. The quick answer is that we don’t know. Only the Lord our God knows when Christ will come back to earth. Anyone who says otherwise is adding their own thoughts to the words of God.

Message 50:13

Storms and earthquakes shall come and the nations must know the Lord is God.

Over the last few years there have been more natural disasters then before causing more and more loss of property and lives.  There have been people that say this is God punishing people for their sins. This is not entirely true. God promised us that these things were going to happen. It is not a punishment but a warning. Will you listen?


And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.

If we have faith in God and keep his commandments we will be blessed in all things. We will always have what we need when we need it. But, most importantly, if we can stay true to the end of this earth or our time on it we will be received into heaven and we will dwell with God forever. This is the key that we should work for, not the wealth on earth, but the wealth of heaven.

2 Peter 3:10

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

We should prepare ourselves for Christ’s coming, for we know now when it will come. There are several popular theories out now about the time frame of the end of the earth. And that is just what they are, theories. Jesus said that only the Father in heaven knew the time of his second coming. Knowing this we need to prepare ourselves today. For we never know when the time will come and we meet Christ.

Message 60:9

The harvest is on. The Lord has spoken and long plead that mankind will obey and fully set their hearts to do his will, for the sheaves are ungathered. The wheat and the tares have grown together. Now the cleansing shall be among men. Be humble that your lives may be full of the love of God for he will deliver.

Good and evil have mixed in this world since the beginning. It time for the harvest where God will remove the evil from around the good. Both good people and evil people will have to go though the cleaning, but only the good ones will make it to haven. No one is immune from the pain of the cleansing.  So prepare yourself and make sure the side that you are on so that you will end up in heaven with Christ.

Message 50:13

Storms and earthquakes shall come and the nations must know the Lord is God.

There will be a time that people will know that God is in charge. In the last few years the number a dramatic natural disasters around the world have escalated. If you believe man, it is our doing, but God told us that he would cause these things to happen as a warning to all people. Let us heed the warning and follow his commandments and the teachings of Christ.

1st Timothy 4:12:14

“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.”

It is important that we keep our promise to God. To love him and to serve him.  By doing that we have to obey his commandments. We have to follow his commandments until Jesus comes back.  That includes keeping the true gospel of Christ correct and unaltered.  It is God’s church, not ours, we can’t change the rules for our gain.
