This is the eleventh part of a multi-part sermon series on the Gospel According to Matthew. Dr. Thiel begins by discussing the Temple and Jesus' prophecy about its soon coming destruction. Dr. Thiel provides citations from historical sources which demonstrate that prediction came to pass. Dr. Thiel also covers the 'beginning of sorrows' and briefly discusses the ecumenical/interfaith movements, earthquakes, famines, and pestilences. He goes over passages related to persecution in Matthew 24 as well as related chapters in the Book of Daniel. He also goes over the necessity to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God to the world as a witness. Dr. Thiel discusses some ideas about the 'holy place' Jesus mentioned in Matthew 24:15. He also explains some things related to the time to try to avoid becoming pregnant, as well as the fact that Jesus expected His people in the end times to be keeping the Sabbath. Dr. Thiel mentioned the sequence leading to the Great Tribulation, why certain others have been in error, as well as scriptures related to the return of Jesus. Dr. Thiel also reads each and every verse in the twenty-fourth chapter of Matthew’s Gospel.
