The Return of Jesus Christ

The debate over Christ's return has raged since shortly after His ascension with no signs of stopping. It seems that every few years, a self-ordained prophet will make an appearance claiming to know more about the event than even Jesus does. This is just one symptom of the larger problem: the focus has been shifted away from Christ. In this message, Alistair Begg challenges us to let Scripture be our guide as we look forward to our glorious hope.

The Proclaimed Kingdom, Part Two

When Jesus first arrived, he ushered in a “now” dimension to the kingdom of God. But there is also a “not yet” dimension to be fulfilled when He returns again. Jesus clearly told his disciples that there would be a great delay before His return. Why? To answer that question Alistair teaches us about a command and a promise Jesus gave. Find out why we are either those to whom the message of the kingdom needs to come, or those from whom the message needs to proceed.

The Message and the Multitude

One of the most memorable and inspiring scenes in the Bible is the "great multitude that no one could number" in Revelation 7. Looking more deeply at this passage, Alistair Begg explains the relationship between these worshippers gathered before God's throne and the Church's mission to take the Gospel to the whole world.


The Crown of Righteousness

What future do we expect after death? Nearing the end of his life and the end of his final epistle, the Apostle Paul wrote with certainty about the future he expected. Alistair Begg explores the principles in 2 Timothy 4:8 in this message, explaining how Paul’s faith in Jesus as righteous Judge and Savior led to his hope of an eternal reward: a crown of righteousness that is secured for all who long for Christ’s return.

The Coming of the Lord, Part One

The Thessalonian believers were fearfully preoccupied with the details concerning Christ’s return. As Paul counseled them to live in anticipation, he encouraged them that the foundation of Christ’s return is His death and resurrection. Alistair Begg reminds us that our primary focus as Christians should not be curiosity surrounding Christ’s return. Instead, the certainty of His coming has implications for how we live today.
