We are living in the end times and Jesus is coming back soon.
I’m not the first to make this statement, nor will I be the last. The Apostles genuinely believed Jesus was coming back during their lifetime.
The next generation believed the same thing. And the next, and the next, all the way up to the present generation.
Based on what’s happening in the world today, it certainly seems like we are living in the end times and that Jesus’ return is imminent.
The fact is no one knows for sure. As Jesus said, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Matthew 24:36).
I have to admit, “End times” does hold a certain fascination and intrigue. The subject piques our curiosity. But it also raises an important question: When Jesus Christ returns, will I be ready?
Only the Gospel can ready us for a victorious future and provide the hope we need to live with confidence here and now.
Every day, we have the privilege of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through the Basic Gospel radio broadcast. Daily, 150,000 people tune in.
Our air-time cost this month is $57,730, a small price to pay to reach these 150,000 listeners and the many others who tune in via the Internet. It is faithful friends like you who keep the Gospel going out to these listeners and help them face the future with confidence.
Let me share with you a wonderful comment I recently received. Derron listens to Basic Gospel on KBBW in Waco, TX. He was not sure about his future. Through listening to the teaching on the program, Derron gained the hope and assurance he longed for.
Mine (Light bulb moment) was when I finally settled the sin issue. I remember Bob Christopher told me to write down in my Bible the day I trusted Christ about his death, burial and resurrection. Whenever Satan starts to make me question my salvation, I can always go to my Bible and look at the date when I nailed it down. Thank you Basic Gospel for everything.
Your gift today to Basic Gospel will help others like Derron get anchored to the hope of the Gospel. Can I count on you to give generously this month to support God’s work through the ministry?
As my way of saying thanks to you for your support this month, I want to send you a copy of Richard Peifer’s audio series, Revelation, It’s No Mystery. Richard has spent many years studying this book. For much of that time, his curiosity was driving him through the pages to calculate dates and interpret current events. Then he discovered the grace of God.
Through the lens of God’s grace, he began to experience the hope, encouragement and victory Revelation offered. Through this series, you will learn to experience this same hope, encouragement and victory in your life and you will be ready to face your future with confidence.
Along with the audio series, we have produced a companion booklet, Our Guaranteed Future. For your copy, simply check the box on the reply slip and send it along with your gift to Basic Gospel.
Let me thank you in advance for helping keep the Gospel message going out over the airwaves. As Lee recently shared with me about his gifts to the ministry, “It’s great to be part of the answer.” Regardless of the amount you choose to give, you are choosing to be part of the answer someone else desperately needs.
Concerning end times, we can be prepared. Let John’s words in his first letter be an encouragement to you:
In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the Day of Judgment, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:17-18).
Let’s continue to work together in helping as many people as possible to look forward to that day when “there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain” (Revelation 21:4).
Until He comes,
