2022 Greenville, South Carolina Festival Messages
Living the World Tomorrow at the Feast
We’re here to picture the righteous rule of Jesus Christ and the saints. We live together, play together, eat together, rejoice together, and go to Church together. We keep the Feast with a purpose. Capture the vision of what the Millennium will be like and rejoice.
For the Former Things Have Passed Away
In Revelation 21:4 God promises that death, sorrow, crying and pain will pass away. The cessation of these will come by a process that begins in the Millennium, as one problem after another progressively becomes history.
That Was Then, This Is Now
By transporting years into the Millennium and then looking back at mankind’s failures in their attempt to govern themselves, we will better appreciate the complete transformation that the rule of Jesus Christ will have brought during the Millennium.
Of Such a Heart
The testimonies of ancient Israel reveal how their hearts failed them in their love to God. King David’s testimonies reveal what God desires and what David was able to achieve. We can learn from these testimonies and possess that same heart today. And God will change the hearts of Israel in the future.
Hope for the Future
I will contrast the world as it is today and the world as it will be under the reign of Christ. The Bible describes the world as it is today. Why is the world like this? Because mankind has rejected God. But there is hope. Our hope is the Kingdom of God. The reign of Christ contrasts greatly from this world.
850 Years In
The seventh day of the Feast parallels 850 years into the Millennium, and there will still be much work to do! Are you and I preparing now for our role in helping guide great numbers of potential sons and daughters for God’s Kingdom?
Teach? Who Me?
We, as God’s firstfruits are called to be teachers. Teachers learn by studying and by experience. As teachers in the Millennium, we will draw from our experiences in this life, as well as from the experiences of those who have gone before us to help us teach.
Those Sad Stories Are Not So Sad
This day pictures the resurrection of all who ever lived. What is God’s reaction when people die? God views death different from us because He can bring back the dead. Everyone will have a chance to enjoy the blessings of God. God will bring a new heaven and a new earth.
