Sermon of the week: “The Grim Reality of the Last Days” by John MacArthur.

John MacArthur Your sermon of the week is The Grim Reality of the Last Days by John MacArthur. This is not a topic Joel Osteen would dare touch, and it’s definitely not a message for the faint-hearted.

Mike Ratliff had this to say about this sermon:

John MacArthur preached something I had never heard before, which compared the eschatology of Islam with that of the Book of Revelation from our Bible. The main character in Islam’s eschatology is called the Mahdi. Also, according [to] their eschatology, Allah sends Jesus back to Earth to serve as the Mahdi’s greatest servant to convert the world to Islam. John MacArthur shows in his sermon how all of this lines up with the Antichrist and the False Prophet. Toward the end of their reign on earth, a false prophet comes to earth who opposes them and there is a great war. In Muslim eschatology, they win and this false prophet is overthrown, but as we know in the book of Revelation, This “false prophet” is the real Jesus Christ who will win that war. My summary pales in comparison to Dr. MacArthur’s fine sermon. I suggest you listen to it.

  1. Katy – I am with you as an amil. Riddlebarger’s books (The Man of Sin and The Case for Amillennialism) have been MOST edifying – though I differ with Kim on ecclesiology and baptism. I do not align with the dispensational veiw of end times.

  2. I have only read The Case for Amillennialism and I must admit, it got *way* over my head! ;) I prefer to listen to the sermons/lectures he has on his blog! I understand those so much better! ha! :)

  3. I’ve have those lectures on my PC and slowly listening to them. In one of the early lessons, he causally denigrates credo-baptists. Such drive-by commentary does not serve anyone. But I do thank God for Riddlebarger’s teaching – we need our theological cages rattled, having been taught so much product from man’s imagination (Darby, Finney, and Wesley come to mind).

  4. Is there a written transcript of this anywhere? My internet server is way too slow for audio. Thanks for any help you can give…

  5. I’m sorry, Pilgrim, respectfully, I just don’t agree with John MacArthur on this subject. I am still learning and studying though. But I am just pretty strong in my amill position.
