Sunday, Idols to Discard and Prophecies to Embrace Before God Says "Time's Up!"

We are hopeless idolators who put everything on the throne of our lives ahead of Jesus Christ. Today, Lon Solomon at McLean Bible Church talks about idolatry, and the primary powers that lead us away from putting God first: family, stuff and self---just to name a few.

I am guilty on all counts, and without the Holy Spirit's constant intervention, do not have the strength or discipline to daily order my life in a way pleasing to God, even in the slightest. I can make an idol out of any and everything.


Another outstanding online sermon from last week is the continuation of Chuck Swindoll's series on Revelation. This is Part 3, from chapter 14. It deals with the prophecy of the Second Coming of Christ and the Final Judgment. At that time, our ability to choose will be finished and we will be held accountable for whether we have accepted the gift of salvation that Jesus Christ came to earth to accomplish and offer to each one of us.

It's sometimes hard to believe that God predicts a time of great and final separation. Yet, it is foretold over and over and over and over in the Bible. And we ignore the prophecies at our great peril, according to John's Revelation. And at our eternal final destiny.
