Hymn

Christ Returneth!


1 It may be at morn, when the day is awaking,

When sunlight through darkness and shadow is breaking,

That Jesus will come in the fullness of glory,

To receive from the world His own.


Refrain:

O Lord Jesus, how long, how long

Ere we shout the glad song,

Christ returneth! 

Hallelujah! hallelujah! 

Amen, Hallelujah! Amen.


2 It may be at midday, it may be at twilight,

It may be, perchance, that the blackness of midnight

Will burst into light in the blaze of His glory,

When Jesus receives His own. [Refrain]


3 While hosts cry Hosanna, from heaven descending,

With glorified saints and the angels attending,

With grace on His brow, like a halo of glory,

Will Jesus receive His own. [Refrain]


4 O joy! O delight! should we go without dying,

No sickness, no sadness, no dread and no crying,

Caught up through the clouds with our Lord into glory,

When Jesus receives His own. [Refrain]

Hymn

Hallelujah! We Shall Rise


1. In the resurrection morning,

When the trump of God shall sound,

We shall rise, Hallelujah! we shall rise!

Then the saints will come rejoicing

And no tears will e’er be found,

We shall rise, Hallelujah! we shall rise.


Refrain

We shall rise, Hallelujah! we shall rise!

Amen! We shall rise! Hallelujah!

In the resurrection morning,

When death’s prison bars are broken,

We shall rise, Hallelujah! We shall rise.


2. In the resurrection morning,

What a meeting it will be,

We shall rise, Hallelujah! we shall rise!

When our fathers and our mothers,

And our loved ones we shall see,

We shall rise, Hallelujah! we shall rise! [Refrain]


3. In the resurrection morning,

We shall meet Him in the air,

We shall rise, Hallelujah! we shall rise!

And be carried up to glory,

To our home so bright and fair,

We shall rise, Hallelujah! we shall rise! [Refrain]

Sermon Notes

PreLabor Pangs #1                                                                     June 28, 2020


 I. The Rapture of the Saints – 1 Thess. 4:13–18; 1 Corinthians 15:51–52



 II. The Labor Pangs of the Tribulation – Mark 13:3–4; Matthew 24:4–8; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6 


Renald E. Showers, Maranatha Our Lord, Come! – These events of these seven years, the tribulation period, are referred to as labor pains. It is interesting that even “ancient Judaism taught that a seven-year period of time will immediately precede the Messiah’s coming to rule the world.”…

    According to The Babylonian Talmud, “The advent of the Messiah was pictured as being preceded by years of great distress.”

    The Dead Sea Scrolls and other literature called the severe troubles of the seven years before the Messiah’s coming “the birth pangs of the Messiah.”

    Millar Burrows pointed this out in his book on the Scrolls: “A prominent feature of Jewish eschatology, as represented especially by the rabbinic literature, was the time of trouble preceding Messiah’s coming. It was called ‘the birth pangs of the Messiah,’ sometimes more briefly translated as ‘the Messianic woes.’”

    Why call these future troubles “the birth pangs of the Messiah”? Because travail precedes birth, and this travail “precedes the birth of a new era”— the Messianic Age. Just as a woman must go through a period of agony before her child is born into the world, so the world will go through birth pangs before the Messianic Age is born into the world. (Renald Showers, Maranatha Our Lord, Come! (The Friends of Israel, 2.)


Renald E. Showers, Maranatha Our Lord, Come! – Just as a woman must endure birth pangs to overcome that which hinders her baby from coming into the world, so the world will have to endure birth pangs to overcome that which will hinder its future Messianic Age from coming into being. Thus, the birth pangs of the seven years (the 70th week of Daniel 9) before the Messiah’s coming to reign are absolutely necessary to remove Satan and rebellious mankind and their rule of the world system from the earth so that the Messianic Age can be born. (Renald Showers, Maranatha Our Lord, Come! (The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry, 1995), 2.)


The Tribulation period is described as “the beginning of sorrows.” This is a Greek word that means “the pain of childbirth, birth-pangs.” It is said to be “intolerable anguish, in reference to the dire calamities which the Jews supposed would precede the advent of the Messiah. (A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, 679)



III. The PreLabor Pangs of the End Times – 2 Thessalonians 2:3–7
