Trinity 25 – 2010 – Therefore Encourage One Another


Sermon by Rev. Christian C. Tiews – 11/21/2010

For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God.

And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.”

As you know, today marks the last Sunday of the Church Year.

And as this Church Year draws to a close, in our lectionary readings the history of the world draws to a close as well.

According to Scripture, how will the world end?

Will global warming melt the polar ice caps and cause us all to drown?

Will we perish in a nuclear Armageddon or will the earth be hit by a giant asteroid?

Or will everything go to heck in a hand basket on December 21, 2012, with all kinds of natural disasters, as prophesied by the Mayan Longcount Calendar and the History Channel?
