A Word From The Pastor...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Greetings,
 
Praying that you have had a blessed week and that God is supplying all your needs.
 
It is also my constant prayer that you are receiving the blessing promised by God's Word in the reading of the passages from Revelation regarding the prophecies, the shadows at least of which, we are seeing played out before our very eyes. This "foreshadowing" has been a method God has used throughout history to portend His coming judgements that will be poured out on a much larger scale. Certainly God is "...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." It is because of this that God provides these foreshadows as warnings of impending calamity so that we might take heed and turn to Him and repent and pray for His mercy.
 
We have now begun our study of events following the evacuation of the church from the world stage will provide a serious appreciation for what those left behind will experience. This study is also examining the "foreshadows" that we are witnessing this very moment in our world.
 
The global pandemic is but in miniature the pandemic that will consume one third of the world's population during the Great Tribulation. The breakdown in the world supply chain is only a minor inconvenience compared to the scale of famine that the rider of the black horse will impose on the earth when he rides. Governmental imposition of its will and persecution of those who reject its invasion of their freedoms, will find its ultimate display in the worldwide dictatorship of the Antichrist who will require those with their allegiance to him to bear his mark and those who refuse to be beheaded.
 
Just these several examples should in and of themselves persuade any doubter as to the veracity and truth of Scripture. Such "coincidences" are impossible and we ignore their message to our peril. Please join us either in person on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. or via our video messages posted weekly on YouTube. You can find this series on the "Sermon Archives" page of our website at:  sermons (boycebaptistchurch.org)
 
Please continue to pray for our nation. I am persuaded that much of what we are experiencing is God's permissive will at work in allowing these plagues to come our way as a means of drawing us back to Him. We hear God's voice telling from His Word, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2Chronicles 7:14, KJV).
 
Please don't hesitate to call me anytime if you need a prayer, or just to chat.  
 
God bless you,
Pastor Ben
