End Times

September 10, 2020

For those of us living in the Bay Area, when we awoke yesterday morning, we were greeted by eerie darkness and an apocalyptic sky. What made it especially strange was that the sunlight didn’t penetrate until midday, and even then, it always felt like dusk. With no strong smell of fire and the air quality at good or moderate levels throughout the day, the ominous orange hue sky gave a sense of a time of trouble.

When you think about it, 2020 is shaping out to be a year full of signs that indeed we could be living in the last days. Whether it be a worldwide pandemic, economic fallout, social unrest, bitter Presidential election, cataclysmic weather, and most recently, California’s most notorious fire season ever, all points to a world about to pass away.

When the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the events of this year puts the apocalypse on everyone’s mind, I don’t think it’s too radical for us to go back to the Bible for answers. In fact, it’s high time we understand afresh what the Bible teaches about the end of the world for such a time as this.

Last Sabbath, Pastor Miguel kicked off a brand-new sermon series entitled: End Times. As Seventh-day Adventists, this is our time to shine for Jesus and let others know how best to prepare for His soon return! I hope you will find the series encouraging and helpful as you minister to those who are wondering, ‘What in the world is going on?’

I encourage you to invite a friend to join you as you worship with us this Sabbath at Outdoor Church or as you stream live our service. God bless and protect you!

“Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.  Matthew 24:32-33
