Num 14:11 Adonai said to Moshe, "How much longer is this people going to treat me with contempt? How much longer will they not trust me, especially considering all the signs I have performed among them?
At BGMC, we believe that the Lord never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. We count on that foundation in a world that is constantly changing. That is why with all the signs and wonders going on around the world we should be very mindful of what the never changing KING is about to do.
I thought long and I thought hard on whether to deliver the sermon I am about to share. We all wish to bounce happily out of congregation on Shabbat. We want to be shaken and stirred – but not too much. We want to be provoked but not too much. We want to be transformed but not too much. As a rabbi, I have a compelling obligation, a responsibility to articulate what has been laid on my heart. What I passionately believe must be said and must be heard. Therefore, I am guided not by what is easy to say but by what is painful to express. I am guided not by the frivolous but by the serious. I am guided not by delicacy but by urgency. We are at war. We are at war with an enemy as savage, as voracious, and heartless, one who seeks to take your soul away from our Lord. A rabbi was once asked by his students, “Rebbi. Why are your sermons so stern?” The rabbi replied, “If a house is on fire and we chose not to wake up our children, for fear of disturbing their sleep, would that be love? Children our house is on fire and I must arouse you from your slumber. This message is about the fire that is going to come from heaven in the Acharit-Hayamim. The phrase Acharit-Hayamim (END-OF-DAYS) is found in scripture 21 times. 7 times in the NT. Almost 50% of the time, it speaks about chastisement. Please take the time to watch or listen to this powerful message, it will not be a waste of your time.
