The Coming Darkness (Part 1)


100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #81 | with Daniel Whyte III

SCRIPTURE: 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

During our time together on yesterday, we talked about the wonderful event called the Rapture in which the Lord Jesus Christ calls all of those who believe in Him to a glorious reunion in the air. After that meeting in the air, every believer will go to be with the Lord in Heaven for eternity. All of the promises of eternal life, peace, joy, and happiness will come to fruition for every believer.

However, on earth, it will be quite a different story. Once the believers are gone from the earth, the darkest days in the history of mankind will begin, and that is what I want to talk about today. You may think that with the unemployment rate, the economic crisis, the rise of poverty even in places like America, numerous and frequent natural disasters, and constant wars and violence, we are already living in dark days. But I want to let you know that this is just the twilight — that will be the darkness.

Our passage today tells us about three different aspects of the dark days that are ahead for this world. Let us briefly look at them.

1. First of all, notice with me the blasphemous dictator.

2. Secondly, notice the unrestrained spirit of evil.

3. Thirdly, notice with me the mastery of Satan.

+ Plus, listen to Andrae Crouch singing “Soon and Very Soon” and Deitrick Haddon singing “Sinner’s Prayer”
