LISTENING FOR THE SHOUT
Jesse M. Hendley
If you have your Bibles, turn with me to Ezekiel 38.
This message is called "Listening for the Shout." This
may be a strange sermon for a man 81 3/4 years old to
be preaching. That it is. I'm listening for the shout,
I am ready for the undertaker, but I prefer the
"uppertaker" and I think you'd say that too. It's
wonderful to anticipate seeing His face.
Life is a race, a race that's tough, and a race that
isn't easy. We're looking forward to the goal, which
is seeing the face of the Lord Jesus Christ. But we
ought not to be looking for death, friends. It may
come, but we are looking for the Rapture. We're to be
looking for that moment when the Lord shall descend
with a shout, a triumphal shout, as He comes back! The
dead in Christ shall rise first. Then, we, born-again
Christians who are alive and remain, will be caught up
in our glorified bodies, together with our dead loved
ones who will be raised in their glorified bodies.
What a glorious day that will be!
I cannot tell you what this Book means to me. All that
I have that is worth anything at all in these advanced
years of mine (and they are well advanced) has come
out of the Bible as the literal Word of the Living
One of the great proofs of the Bible being the Word of
God is fulfilled prophecy. The more I study, the more
I believe that a serious thinking person cannot study
the great prophecies of the Word of God without
believing that the Bible is the Word of God. Man
cannot read the future, but the Bible does and
I'd like to summarize with you some of the things that
make me believe that the shout may come at any moment,
and that we may be with Jesus very, very soon.
"Russia and Israel"
There are three areas I want to think about in this
message. The first one relates to Russia and Israel.
In the 38th chapter of the Book of Ezekiel we read
about a mighty ...
