This past Sunday at First Assembly of God in Brookfield, Pastor Phil Morgan continued his exposition of 1 Thessalonians where 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 was the focus of his sermon.
1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.The rapture of the church is the next prophetic event that will take place as ordained by God and the task of the church is to be actively engaged in evangelistic service, winning souls to Christ.

The rapture of the church is our blessed hope, but for the world, it will be an indescribable terror. Are you ready?
Old Testament references to the Day of the Lord:
Jesus said, "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be." - Matthew 24:21.
"That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of devastation and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness," Zephaniah 1:15Is this what you want to live through because you have rejected Christ for the salvation of your soul?
