THE COMING GREAT STORMS
SERMON STARTER

          I used this sermon title and texts 12 years ago just after Hurricane Katrina devastated the New Orleans region. The governor refused initial Federal support. There was a resulting
aftermath of thousands of evacuated helpless people abandoned without food and water for days. The Katrina affair was a warning shot across the smug bow of our national ship of state.
          The original sermon has proved the prophetic test of time. Those who do not learn from the past are destined to repeat it.
The people of the U.S. are reeling from several calamities Katrina-type calamities simultaneously. Today, we are holding our breathe collectively as we await not one but TWO more hurricanes in SW Florida. Our hearts collectively go out to the South Texans mopping up the devastating aftermath of hurricane Harvey. Floridians are struggling to evacuate from the hurricane zones most like to hit landfall this morning.
          The enclosure with this week's sermon shows that while national media has been focused on LOCAL NATIONAL threats, the entire globe is in a gigantic spasm of pain. The Apostle Paul was writing prophetically in Romans 8:22 when he wrote,

22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.

The world itself has become like a woman suffering from the pangs of childbirth. It's time for God's children to be the children of God. It's time to shine. The travail of childbirth precedes the joy of newness of life.
          Let's pray together that this national / global pain will bring the world to it's knees and recognize its need of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. This sermon explores the awesome prophesies of Jesus and how accurately they are coming to pass

THE COMING GREAT STORMS
Matthew 8:18-27 – Matthew 24:1-8

"Globally, the world is in great travail. In the U.S. only the news that pertains to citizens directly is being reported. The world itself has become like a woman suffering from the pangs of childbirth. It's time for God's children to be the children of God. It's time to shine."         Pastor Phil  <><<

HE IS WITH US, NOT JUST IN THE STORM, BUT THROUGH IT

 

THE COMING GREAT STORMS
Matthew 8:18-27
18  When Jesus saw the crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake.
19  Then a teacher of the law came to him and said, "Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go."
20  Jesus replied, "Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head."
21  Another disciple said to him, "Lord, first let me go and bury my father."
22  But Jesus told him, "Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead."
23  Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him.
24  Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
25  The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"
26  He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
27  The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!"

 

 

 

 

 

THE COMING GREAT STORMS, p.2
Matthew 24:1-8
24:1  Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings.
2  "Do you see all these things?" he asked. "I tell you the truth, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down."
3  As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"
4  Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you.
5  For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ, ' and will deceive many.
6  You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
7  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.
8  All these are the beginning of birth pains.
