The Last Sermon of Christ

August 14, 2011

The Bible was written by different men in different generations. However, they were all led and inspired by the same Holy Spirit. Therefore each part of the Bible has a different style according to the human writer, and a different historical emphasis according to the generation it was written in. Yet the Bible has a unified theme from beginning to end because of the unified inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

The theme of the kingdom of God develops throughout the Bible in a progressive revelation. In the very last chapter, Yeshua (Jesus) gives perhaps the shortest sermon of all time, yet repeats it 3 times.

Revelation 22:7 – “I am coming quickly.”

Revelation 22:13 – “I am coming quickly.”

Revelation 22:20 – “I am coming quickly.”

We are coming close to the fulfillment of these verses. The Bible was first published on the printing press in the 1450’s. Only in our generation has the Bible been spread throughout China and South East Asia. These verses are the last exhortation, the last sermon.

We are to obey the words of Scripture (verse 7). We are to know that every person will be rewarded or punished according to what he has done (verse 13). We are to be prepared to invite Yeshua to return (verse 20). The word “quickly” refers to the urgency of being ready.

The time is at hand. Every generation preached the message of the kingdom in the light of the historical conditions of their age. Moses led the people out of Egypt; Joshua conquered the land; David established the kingdom; Solomon built the Temple; Jeremiah prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem; Zechariah and Zerubabel restored the remnant. John the Baptist introduced Yeshua’s first coming. Peter brought the gospel to Israel; Paul established the international Church.

Now we are approaching the Second Coming. What is the call of God on this generation at the beginning of the fulfillment of end times’ prophecies? The focus of the gospel now is to be prepared for the Second Coming. The message is urgent.

Maturity – from “Toxic Tribal” to “Beyond Team”

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. (1 Corinthians 13:11) A small child is the centre of their own world, without perspective on how small they actually...
