The Future of Everything

Cover Future of EverythingBook Description

All of us think about the end times. When we reflect on what will happen not only when we die but when this present age ends, some combination of ideas, images, hopes, and fears floods our minds. In The Future of Everything, William Boekestein encourages us to allow our thoughts on the end times to be guided by God’s Word. While combing the Scriptures to find direction related to subjects like death, the millennial kingdom, the return of Christ, the resurrection, judgment, heaven, and hell, Boekestein helps us cultivate a vision for the future that impacts our walk before God’s face today.

Proof Positive (John 20:11-18)

Podcast Art JohnOn Sunday, October 2, 2016, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “Proof Positive” from John 20:11-18.

Just as Mary testified to the resurrection of Jesus, we the church must also testify, and God will use us as he used her and others in the early church, to draw sinners to himself.

1. Messengers of Hope—The presence of the angels hints at the fact that Jesus’s tomb is empty because he rose from death and walked out.

2. Whom Are You Seeking?—Do you seek one to take away your earthly problems, or a Savior and Lord who saves you from the wrath of his Father for your sins?

3. I Have Seen the Lord—If God can use Mary and the early church to testify to Christ’s resurrection and ascension, then he can use you, too.

He is Risen; He is Risen Indeed! (John 20:1-10)

Podcast Art JohnOn September 11, 2016, Pastor Joe Troutman preached “He is Risen; He is Risen Indeed!” from John 20:1-10.

Jesus Christ is risen from the dead. If we believe in him, we have already been raised spiritually, and will be raised physically when he returns.

1. On the First Day—Christ’s resurrection was so significant to the early Christians, that they began observing the Sabbath on the first day of the week. Everything has shifted with the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

2. Seeing the Signs—The resurrection is the greatest sign that Jesus Christ is God. The signs of Jesus’ resurrection lead John to believe.

3. That He Must Rise—Christ’s resurrection is the new creation. Your rising in him makes you a new creation. You have been changed, and you will be changed.
