The Great Escape | Sunday Message

7/14/2024
As we've heard Pastor Greg Laurie say, “What we believe about end times will affect the way we live in these times.” Today, Pastor Jonathan Laurie helps us get a biblical understanding of the Rapture and Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Notes: Focus verse: Matthew 24:37 1. What Is the Rapture? 1 Thessalonians 4:13–18 “The rapture of the church is that future event when Jesus Christ will descend from Heaven to resurrect the bodies of departed believers and to transform and translate the bodies of living believers immediately into His glorious presence in a moment of time, and then escort them to Heaven to live with Him forever.” —Mark Hitchcock The Rapture vs. The Second Coming The Rapture is when Jesus comes for His church. The Second Coming is when Jesus comes with His church. The Rapture happens before the tribulation. The Second Coming happens at the end of the tribulation. The Rapture is the removal of believers from the earth as an act of deliverance. The Second Coming includes unbelievers as an act of judgement. The Rapture will be secret and instant. The Second Coming will be visible to everyone. The Second Coming will not happen until the rapture happens. Nothing else needs to happen prophetically for the Rapture to happen. 2. Is It Biblical? Why Should We care? 1 Corinthians 15:51–53 The Rapture Is Biblical Because: Accounts of people raptured (Enoch and Elijah). Civilizations spared from judgement (Sodom & Gomorrah and Nineveh). Jesus’ own words (Luke 17:34–36). 3. How Should We Respond? 1 Thessalonians 5:6–11 “What we believe about end times will affect the way we live in these times.” —Pastor Greg Laurie Keep up with Harvest Crusade details --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org.

Christ's Call to Courage | Navigating Cancel Culture

7/11/2024
“It takes courage, in our culture today especially, to speak up for what is true. Because culturally we’re going the wrong direction on so many fronts. And for you to stand up and say what the Bible says takes courage.” “Cancel culture” resists the truth of God’s Word. But Pastor Greg Laurie points out we have a message that must get delivered! “Now, I’ve got to warn you. If you speak up for what is true, you might get cancelled, or worse.

How to Live a Meaningful Life | Embracing Jesus' Teachings in a Self-Centered World

7/10/2024
We can make two mistakes when it comes to the afterlife. Some people think hell won’t be too bad. They joke that all their friends will be there – they’ll just party all the time. There won’t be any parties there. The other mistake we can make is thinking heaven isn’t all that good . . . especially if you don’t play the harp. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see what’s really waiting for believers. We’ll learn about the abundant life in the here and now, and eternal life in the hereafter.

How to Live a Meaningful Life | Pursuing a Life of Endurance

7/9/2024
In any gym, there are people there who are just getting it done . . . a certain number of reps, a certain duration of time, and—whew!—they’re done, and they’re gone. And there are others who push themselves, and they give it their all! And it shows. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out, this life is too important to muddle through.

How to Reach Our Culture with the Gospel | Finding Common Ground

7/8/2024
As believers, sometimes it seems we’re living in some kind of weird, upside-down culture where right is wrong, up is down, and sin is to be celebrated. We feel disoriented, like aliens on a strange planet. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that, sometimes, people may feel a bit disoriented when they talk to us. He’ll show us ways to find common ground, use common language, and capture their interest with our message of hope.

Israel: The Key to the End Times | Sunday Message

7/7/2024
Although Israel plays a significant role in Bible prophecy, there is still a lot misunderstood. Pastor Greg Laurie provides clarity on the topic. Learn about God’s plan and how this nation plays a part in it. Notes: Focus verses: Ezekiel 37 / Romans 11 As the signs of the times increase and get closer together, it reminds us that Jesus’ coming is very near. The nation Israel is the key to the end times. The Jews are God’s chosen people, and Satan hates what God loves. A sign of the end times is the regathering of the Jews in Israel. Read: Ezekiel 37:1–6, 11–14 Israel will be scattered. Israel will be regathered. Israel will regain Jerusalem. Israel will be isolated. The city of Jerusalem will be a focal point of the end times. Israel will be “an intoxicating drink,” “a heavy stone,” and “a burden for the world.” Zechariah 12:2–3 After being regathered in their land, Israel will be attacked. Read: Ezekiel 38:2–6, 10–11 Magog today probably represents the former underbelly of the Soviet Union. Rosh is the remote part of the North, so it may be a direct reference to Russia. Gomer is part of modern Turkey. Persia is modern Iran. “Iran clearly knows now how to unlock the doors to a nuclear Armageddon. There is a growing sense in Israel that Jerusalem is quickly running out of time.” —An expert on the Middle East “Tehran has inserted the nuclear key into the gate lock of Armageddon and is beginning to twist it open.” —Unknown God intervenes on Israel’s behalf. Ezekiel 38:18 Read: Romans 11:25–26 A spiritual awakening will happen to the Jewish people. Jeremiah 33:23–24 God’s first covenant with Israel was with Abraham, the father of the Hebrews. Genesis 12:2–3 God wants to use us to bless the people who have blessed us. Romans 11:14 If a Christian is walking with God, others will take notice. Are you a bridge or a barrier to people coming to Christ? If you want to win some, be winsome (friendly, kind, and loving). God says we will never be alone in life. Isaiah 41:10 God promises to get us through whatever we’re facing. Isaiah 43:2 Jesus promised that He would come again. God is waiting for the complete number of Gentiles to come to Christ. Romans 11:25–26 Every soul matters to God! Enoch represents the believers who will not die but be caught up. God is waiting for that last Gentile to come.

Hope for Hurting Hearts | Classic Crusade

7/6/2024
In this classic crusade message, Pastor Greg Laurie offers hope from the Gospel of John. How can we have hope when we’re faced with disappointment and tragedy?

How to Reach Our Culture with the Gospel | Sharing the Hope of Jesus

7/5/2024
As believers who want to share our faith, sometimes it would seem we’re attempting to deliver a message that many people just don’t want to hear. They think they don’t NEED to hear it. The truth is, everyone needs the hope of Jesus Christ. Today, on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us that God built us with a hunger for God. People may try to feed that hunger with the things of this world, but sooner or later they’ll come to realize their hunger is for something more.

How to Look Up When Things Look Down | From Resistance to Redemption

7/4/2024
Some people come to Christ instantly, as soon as they hear the Gospel. It’s the miracle of a moment. Others resist that decision for decades, until one day they realize their need for Christ. Sometimes it’s a crisis or tragedy that brings them to that point, other times it’s as though their eyes suddenly opened. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie shows us the miraculous conversion of a certain Philippian jailer . . . a conversion that would sweep through his entire family.

How to Look Up When Things Look Down | Embracing Vulnerability and Encouragement

How to Resolve Conflict | Scriptural Solutions for Conflict Resolution

7/2/2024
In so many arguments, as one person is making her point, the other person is formulating his response. He’s not really hearing her point, he’s preparing his counterpoint.

Disagreement and conflict is almost inevitable in human relationships. When that happens, some people put up their fists . . . others call up their lawyer.
