_, HOGANSVIIJ HOME NEWS - NOVEMBER 4, 1999 -PAGE 5 Wh "n Will it End? Antioch Baptist Church This past week when the most recent edition of Newsweek magazine came in the mail, the word Prophecy Was boldly standing out on the Cover. With the end of the sec- ond millennium approaching, raany are beginning to wonder What the future holds. All across the nation and world, more and more are contem- Plating if the year 2000 will be the end. Preachers, scientists, Professors, theologians and skeptics are expressing their Opinion as to the end of the when and what it will be Any serious student of Prophecy must admit that the exact day and hour of the end Cannot be determined. As inter- as it is to study about the end of the world, there is some- thing else that must be consid- ered first. According to the Bible, the end of the world is not the next 'event on God's timetable. Before the world and time comes to an end, there are sev- ,eral things that must take place, the first of which is the rapture of the church. The word rap- ture cannot be found in the Bible, but in I Thessalonians chapter 4 and verse seventeen the Bible says,"Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds..." The words, caught up, are where the word rapture comes from. The word rapture comes from the Latin translation of this verse and means a snatching away. More important than learning about the end of time, is learning about the time when Jesus comes again. The rapture of the church is that instant in time when Jesus Christ comes and caches away the church. There are two things that must be understood about this. First it must be understood that only those saved by faith in the Lord Jesus will go. A person is not saved by the label they wear but by faith in Jesus Christ as Savior. The fact that you are a Baptist, a Methodist, a Presbyterian, or a Pentecostal does not take you to Heaven or keep you from Heaven. Only if you receive Christ will you go to Heaven and only if you reject Christ will you go to Hell. The rapture is when Jesus comes for all those that have received as Savior since he died on the cross. (The Old Testament saints will be dealt with later.) The second thing we must know about the rapture is that no one knows when it will take place. John 14:1-3 promises that Jesus will come and get his own, but nowhere in Scripture are we told when he will come for his saints.Acts 1:7 says, "It is not for you to know the times and seasons which the father hath put in his own power." Jesus is coming but we do not know when, so it makes sense to be ready when he does come. The Bible is true and when it says Jesus will come, he will come. Hebrews 10:37 says, "For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry." It is interesting to read what is being said about the end of time, but to know the real truth one must turn to the Word of God. According to the Word of God, the next event that must be considered is the Rapture of the Church. May God help us to be ready when Jesus comes. "You are the light of the world." Matthew 5:14 ,=ssembly of God How brightly are we shining? Keep the message beaming; Christ is still redeeming; The task is divine; it's both yours and mine, Let your light shine! Whether you're a candle in a corner or a beacon on a hill, let your light shine. Sunday morning the glory of the Lord was great in our mist. Johnnie Williams brought forth a powerful message from Matthew 9:35-38 and 10:1. Our youth were in charge of "But the Lord provided a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was inside the fish for three days and three nights." Jonah 1:17 (NIV) Is this about all you know about the story of Jonah? Ever wondered what this fish story is all about and why Jonah was swallowed? Have you ever seen children try to run from their shadows? These questions and more are explored in Sunday School this week, as we see how Jonah tried to disregard God's call in the lesson "Running from God." We begin a new study theme for November, "Jonah: the service Sunday evening. That this day, I'll not go Matthew 5:1 Bro.

In studying the Book of Jonah, we come to an understanding that God is concerned about the sal- vation of all people, even the most unlovable - and how we share the responsibility to tell this Good News to all the world.
