Tooling Up in Preparation for Jesus' Second Coming - Part 3 (Luke 12:49-59)Dan Thoemke, August 30, 2015
Part of the Gospel of Luke series
Reflections on the purpose of Christ's 1st coming.
Divisions that come due to spiritual matters.
Allegiance and identity is key to our destiny!
I. He came to bring fire to the earth.
II. What was the baptism Jesus referred to?
III. What, Jesus came to "divide"?
IV. Discerning the times with an eternal perspective.
1. Do you see yourself as Jesus sees you?
2. Is your allegiance set upon heavenly or earthly principles?
3. Are you ready for Jesus return, what is your world view?
49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I if it be already kindled? 50But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 54And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. 55And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. 56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? 57Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right? 58When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison. 59I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.
