Don’t Be Left Behind. RCCG House Fellowship 2/05/2021
TOPIC: Don’t Be Left Behind
OPENING PRAYER: Father, please make me be with the saints when the trumpet shall sound.
PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should fix a date with his/her centre members when they would go on hospital or prison evangelism.
MEMORY VERSE: Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. – Acts 1:11
BIBLE TEXT: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 (KJV)
1Th 4:13 Our friends, we want you to know the truth about those who have died so that you will not be sad, as are those who have no hope.
1Th 4:14 We believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will take back with Jesus those who have died believing in him.
1Th 4:15 W_ hat we are teaching you now is the Lord’s teaching: we who are alive on the day the Lord comes will not go ahead of those who have died.
1Th 4:16 There will be the shout of command, the archangel’s voice, the sound of God’s trumpet, and the Lord himself will come down from heaven. Those who have died believing in Christ will rise to life first;
1Th 4:17 then we who are living at that time will be gathered up along with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord.
1Th 4:18 So then, encourage one another with these words.
All Christians know that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming again. Most of them know that His second coming will be in two stages:
(i) like a thief in the night to take the spotless bride away before the tribulation starts and
(ii) to return with the bride seven years later to reign on earth for thousand years. Without a doubt, some people will be here on earth during those seven terrible years. Anyone who did not go with Him at His first appearing will pass through the tribulation. Be warned brethren, do not be left behind.
LESSON AIM: To examine the events that will take place after the rapture.
TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to:
i. Understand the post-rapture events – tribulation etc..
ii. Distance themselves completely from those post events.
TEXT REVIEW: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
i. We are encouraged by the text not to mourn like the worldly people when a Christian died.
ii. That this world is not our final destination.
iii. Also, that there will be an event that will take place which all Christians would be taken so that they will meet with the Lord.
TEACHING METHOD: The leader should use the teaching/lecture method.
TIME MANAGEMENT: Share the teaching time using the suggested time schedule.
LESSON OUTLINES: There are two outlines:
1. AFTER THE RAPTURE, THERE WILL BE A WORLD CHURCH:
After the rapture, Satan will endeavour to establish a worldwide kingdom with a king at its head. This satanic king has several titles among which are:
(i) the Anti-Christ, – 1 John 2:18-22
(ii) the will king, – Daniel 11:36
(iii) the lawless one
(iv) the son of perdition. – 2 Thessalonians 2:3
He will become the head of a revived form of the Roman Empire, gain control of the western world and form an alliance with the world church. Don’t be left behind if you don’t want to join the world church.
2. THE ANTI-CHRIST WILL HAVE SPECIAL DEALINGS WITH ISRAEL:
The Anti-Christ will make a covenant with Israel who will rebuild the temple in Jerusalem and start sacrifices again. The only opposition to the Anti-Christ at this moment will be Russia who will instigate Syria and Egypt to invade Israel. The Anti-Christ will defeat Syria and Egypt but meanwhile, Russia would have invaded Israel and be supernaturally defeated. Thus the power of the Anti-Christ would grow to the extent that he would declare that he is God and demand worship that everyone should worship him. Don’t be left behind if you don’t want to worship the Anti-Christ. – Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15, Revelations 13:8
ACTIVITY: State vividly the events that will take place after the rapture. Will you be there?
SUMMARY: Don’t plan to stay behind after the rapture.
CONCLUSION: Please don’t take God for granted, heed to His warning and instruction all the time, so that we will not perish like Noah’s generation.
