We all could use some encouragement and will find it together today in the Bible-based printing of Dr. Don Wilton on Blessed assurance. It's part three in a three-part message from Dr. Wilton about Blessed assurance and reopen God's word together today he would want to know that we are wide open to pray with you. We love to pray with you at the other end of 866-899-WORD a little bit of an old-school number yes 866-899-WORD 9673 we've been taking calls on that for many many years, decades, as a matter of fact, sometimes even in this day and age of texting and typing and emails which we do as well.
There's an opportunity to have a conversation that can be a life changer again 866-899-WORD 9673 or if you would like to use your keyboard connectors firstname.lastname@example.org now.
Today's message with Dr. Don Wilton gone, speaks and even the ones in the way obey his voice. I believe on that as we gather together I believe that God in all his radiant glory, the king of kings and Lord of lords was just going to stand there and he's going to speak victory just like, well, let's see what happens.
Verse 26 the vision of the evenings and mornings that is being given to you is true, but seal up the vision for it concerns the distant future. I was exhausted so I lay ill for several days, then got up and went about the king's business. I was told by the vision and it was beyond understanding. So, yet we all know we all looking at the great talks of history. One of the preachers that I listen to had some very interesting thoughts, but each keep talking history is being highlighted by certain significant events and turning points are: turning points. The spiritual turning point in the ages was the Reformation, the cultural turning point was the Renaissance, the intellectual turning point in the history was the age of Enlightenment reason suddenly began to move into the age of reason all the modern era, which is lost on what side of historical sequence you find yourself seated upon the modern era really is all inspired now for some 300 years and it is based upon a foundation which gives to us the following thoughts all basic hypotheses basic presuppositions upon which the age of reason is number one that human reason has replaced God is the same true blood you want to put a little phraseology within a bracket behind the foundation of the age of reason, the preparations of the arrival of the antichrist. This is what's been happening.
This is why the soil is so. One human reason has replaced God is the same true black number two. Today is when it can be proved scientifically.
That's the reason that Martin is only to me when it can be proved scientifically no other way we can take God at his word is no expression. Number three is actually getting better and is going to culminate in the age of Utopia.
You know why because new age and it's very deep say is listen. I want you to know that is essentially good by nature he wanted also to life. Look into your own heart. Well, God tells us exactly the opposite number five. All values are relative.
Let's find out. You do because that means that there are no absolutes. There are no absolutes agrees that God is up for grabs means that Jesus is a maybe. The Holy Spirit is a potential happiness is something that can never be obtained is nonexistent.
Only the pursuit of truth is existent, but you could never achieve or attain truth because there is no such thing as an absolute, but have a jolly good time trying to find it anyway and so the question comes down to this.
Daniel is being confronted by the most important question and that is this mankind survive going way back to his time and God is going to cite the way back. Daniel stopped Daniel. You cannot survive. You cannot survive without me with God is destined for absolute unmitigated disaster.
The only reason you have for existence is found in the heart of a God who loves you and so he has this extraordinary vision. I wanted just then focus just for these closing thoughts on the little horn of chapter 8 and you walk us epiphanies Bible tells us in in verses 910 1112 the Bible says that the little hole that came out of the Greek empire that he started small, just like the antichrist he grew in power just like the antichrist, he achieved greatness just like the antichrist. Verse 11 says he is anti-God. Just like the antichrist. Verse 11 is the place of worship is destroyed, just like the antichrist. Verse 12 says he prospered, just like the antichrist and verse 12 also says that is destroyed. That is exactly the behavior and the results of that crap in the behavior by virtue of the antichrist. Verse 13 culminates with the work of God and that God speaks loudly and clearly and boldly heard the holy one will speak the explanation of the vision. Well, what about Antioch us epiphanies came out of the Seleucid dynasty.
He was anti-Semitic. Verse nine tells us that an historic history confirms that he ruled for 1150 days. Verse 14 tells us that is exactly what 2300 evenings and mornings are it fits exactly and he was also a prototype of the antichrist. Every activity and every characteristic of Antioch us epiphanies is a blueprint of the activity of the antichrist not just let me give you a few historical facts to support this one and he actually knew to the Jewish while we do know from history that that he marched against Jerusalem and Lansing. Verse nine, the beautiful land.
That's exactly what he did sicken the bull. Verse 11. The Bible says that took away the daily sacrifice from him in the place of his century was brought low. I watch this watch this folks.
The place of his century was brought low. One of the things that is documented about Antioch us epiphanies was that he went into the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and he took a large pig and he slaughtered the pig in the Jewish Temple and had his soldiers drag the pig all over the temple, spilling its blood over all of the things that the Jewish people held a baby pig as a centerpiece in the Jewish Temple. Now what is the one thing the Jewish people do not eat your God heart rate and the Jewish people are poles apart you to go back into the Levitical law to understand this is gonna cost bacon with your eggs. It doesn't kind of go over to will in Israel they go for that is a very open part of their religious beliefs and it is tied into the chloro another thing he did was with the pagan worship of the God of salmon into the temple. He didn't just decree that the people should worship the God of second worship.
This folks, that is mitigated desecration of everything that Israel believed and will be back with the rest of the days met with Dr. Don Wilton in just a moment, but even as the world becomes darker, we have the opportunity because of Jesus Christ to be like that darkness given the responses.
The smallest candle can shatter the darkness in the darkest, we want to be like the darkness we have wonderful resources like the daily devotional we can put that in your hands in a physical copy have it things in that quarterly magazine Encouraging Word by you that on our website online.org smack dab in the middle you see the word connect, click on that and right can also call us 866-899-WORD and ask us to send you a copy that's 866899967.
All those details of our website simple DEW online.org. Okay, maybe it's not so simple DEW for the cursing word online.org going to get there so you can come back and see… Today's message the closing of the Blessed assurance. Dr. Don Wilton is studying 36143 was terrorized the Jewish people you saw Jewish worship.
This is super from, I couldn't do anything that I would love to read the Torah.
Now you know the Jews all very strong map regarding when you go to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. You'll find many of the doctors standing there they will be doing this.
They'll be wearing those little packs about have banners in all kinds of things around them though just be standing.
Marcus and I are reciting what you think.
I recited the Torah very important to the Jewish people is fundamentally tied into their religious beliefs. Well Antioch us epiphanies destroyed before he actually Torah to be better. He went around it's almost as though some guards were to coming to our church now to collect up all the Bibles and she tried to eliminate them from the beautiful land and from Jerusalem he circumcision the friends if you don't know this and I'm sure most of you know this is an integral part of the Jewish religion that baby boys are circumcised by the eighth day of their lives without exception. There is no exception to the male circumcision and the Jewish faith all together. It's not something that you debate about I basically didn't need to have deacons meeting soul all rabbi meetings over this one. It was written into the law of God, well Antioch a super Chinese man. Circumcision historians tell us that one lady had two little boys twin boys and because of her beliefs in these stories multiply. She went on the day she circumcised. Both of those boards.
Antioch us epiphanies lady into his court with those two little baby boys and what he did to those two little boys I find difficult to talk about the end result was that he eventually these two little baby boys and in the most perfect grammar slowly murdered their mother in front of his entire court. There was another woman who had seven sons and she did a similar thing accepting that the seven boys had already been circumcised. They were in the teen years and she insisted that those boys go through the rituals associated with a Jewish faith you've all heard of bat mitzvah. The coming-of-age of the Jewish people would not run similar to what they went through Antioch us epiphanies got to hear about this and so he summons the mother and sons into His Ct. in Jerusalem. The first thing was that he cut the tongues of those seven sons out of their mouths in front of his court. Then he put a stake in their mouth so that their mouths were forced open and similarly one of these guards to do this general news. He personally gradually some extremely hot substance down the mouths of the seven boys mouths and slowly burning their throat and intestine three.
Systematic torture of this nature butchered all seven of those sons in front of their mother, and when he had the seven sons. He turned on the mother and what he did to the mother was 10 times worse than what he did to those seven son pardon for giving you this historical fact, but I want to tell you that during the time of Antioch, a super from these 80,000 Jews were murdered in Jerusalem in a 3 1/2 year. It was mitigated.
Tara and the zoster go to chapter 8 verse 23. In the latter part of the writing when rebels become completely wicked. Just one Oscar Christian right, I mean anything by this is that any saints in which the world is becoming completely wicked to the what part does God and his righteousness playing in the world today. How popular is it to take a stand for Jesus Christ and his righteousness across the world.
You know folks that you can go to Europe today. The godlessness in that beautiful part of the world will shock you can go to Australia today where my family came from Australia is a secular humanist society. There are small pockets of evangelical Christians, but the church is diminishing the left and right you know that in England today. Many of the churches would become bingo holes and antique stores and coffeehouses by disclosing left and right you know that in America there is increasing long even in the part of the evangelical church to walk down the church today. The clarion call in America today is that we might as easy as we possibly can for people. It means to be the most place in the world goal needs to be people around church eat drink whatever they want when they come in the church. Relax have been placed on them or some other time. Just get some spiritual entertainment and we want to make. I see them on anybody about Jesus saying if any man will come off the peak, he must deny himself and take up his that's kind of old-fashioned some of the biggest churches in America today, also called churches that have absolutely broken down and done away with any kind of semblance of church ship all tradition and please don't misunderstand me when I talk about tradition because tradition can be equally wicked.anybody search on site there tradition, listen tradition, my friend. That is not of God is as contemporary myths without God, I just wanted Oscar question here, it stays in the latter part of their writing. When rebels have become completely wicked stern faced king a moss green tree will arise, he will become very strong, not by his own power, he will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does, he will destroy the mighty man and the holy people he will cause deceit to prosper and he will consider himself superior and when I feel secure, he will destroy many and take a stand against the Prince of princes. He will be destroyed, but not by human power. What can we learn from this number one. The Christian life is filled with joy that there is no doubt number to the Christian life is also filled with suffering. Suffering is a fact about relationship with the Lord. The cross of Christ. But I think certainly and most importantly friends. The most important thing for us is not just to accept joy and suffering. Most important thing for us is to see life from God's perspective, you know that's what encourages me most. Some of you might cyanide down some of you might say will pasta do you think we arrived at the end. I know we don't know that nobody knows that I do know that I have a little bit of difficulty when people say will this person is going to be the antichrist will this is going to happen. All I am going to say is I'm going to read and study God's word and I may decide to myself listen I want to tell as many people as I possibly can about Jesus Christ.
That's more important. What's important to me to my is that you know the Lord Jesus. That's important.
See, when you know the Lord Jesus Christ. All these things for him to their perspective folks are looking for the Lord to come. I'm not so convinced that I want them to come right now because I still want to get my golf score down into the 70s we've got a lot of things that are going on and what about teenagers lost you listen to this one about teenagers in our church came to me and said to me, and you think the Lord Jesus is going to come before. I have an opportunity to get married. She was as sweet as genuine as I've ever seen. What is most precious Christian young girls in our church. She said to me, pasta, you know, I really would like to get married in Lombok called White to have my own children and I said you know I hope the Lord gives you that wish I don't know but I tell you what if he does, the rapture of the church happens before that happens. I really think you gonna look back and you cite your I would've loved to gotten married but actually it's not important anymore because I'm married to the King of Kings and Lord of loads that amazing and that amazing is that amazing what a great and wonderful God we serve at times when I go through these prophecies like this and one feels almost a little bit sad that you have to deal with some of these things in it.
I get pensées man, I know you're exhausted and you feel just as skilled as Daniel felt should be because these things are not good, but you got to see things from my perspective because when you see things from my perspective, everything is good because I'm God I've got you in the palm of my hand and I'm never going to leave you and I'm never going to forsake time is gone for the day. But isn't that all of life changing our perspective, not from our own perspective, from God's perspective it was a part of the body of Christ.
