“The end is near!” You’ve probably seen their signs. And you probably think those people are a little wacky. Yet we’re obsessed with it. It’s why we were all so worried about Y2K, the Mayan calendar, and the Ebola virus. Some of the most popular movies and TV shows feature apocalyptic settings – natural disasters, nuclear annihilation, viral pandemic, alien invasion, zombie apocalypse or machine takeover.
These intuitive fears reflect a truth from God – Doomsday is coming! The prophet Isaiah describes that day as “cruel both with wrath and fierce anger;” other prophets call it a terrible, dreadful day when even the mighty man will cry bitterly. The Bible compares the pain & suffering to that of child birth. However we imagine doomsday – it will be worse.
Thankfully, 1 Thessalonians 5 holds the key to prepping for doomsday. You see, God doesn’t want you to be destroyed but to be delivered. This 5-week series will prepare you to survive the last days.
