Sunday Sermon: The Day of the Lord

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.

This message can also be heard at

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 wratha day of trouble and distressa day of devastation and desolationa day of darkness and gloominessa day of clouds and thick darkness," Zephaniah 1:15
Is this what you want to live through because you have rejected Christ for the salvation of your soul?

Great message. Teaching on the endtimes is not much preached or talked about in the churches today. With that said, the rapture is becoming a forgotten message too. It seems like so many are now coming against that teaching (especially if you understand it as a catching away prior to the tribulation, aka pre-trib). It is could to hear someone preach on this subject. It was also good to hear the minister say that the world is not going to get better. We hear some much on how us (Christians) are going to make this world better so Jesus will be able to come back. Keep posting this messages - there is (if not yet) a famine in the land of the word of God. Question: I understand there is a series of preaching on 1 Thessalonians from this pastor? If so, would it be on the web?
