NO FEAR FOR THE FUTURE

1844 - The Day That changed the World!
Take a fascinating trip back to 1844, observe the meteoric rise of radical movements, then be inspired by the incredible evidence of God's guidance of a small band of dedicated Bible-based Advent believers.
1) FROM MAJOR MISTAKE TO MIGHTY MESSAGE:
The Sanctuary - God's Cleansing
People all over the planet were proclaiming it - The Second Coming of the Savior! One interpretational error resulted in "The Great Disappointment" of October 11, 1844. God was bringing to light a long-neglected Bible truth about the special day that celebrates the creation of the world.
2) THE RAPTURE VERSUS THE RETURN:
The Second Advent - God's Coming
Attacking from outside the Christian church (Communism), inside the church (Dispensationalism), and through lukewarm believers (Laodiceanism), Satan has sought to destroy the truth of Jesus' second advent. But, God raised up a people to proclaim this news.
3) SURVIVAL OF THE STRONGEST:
The Sabbath - God's Creation
It was in the summer of 1844 that a former theology student wrote over 200 pages of a theory that would impact the world. Yet, that very year, 1844, God was bringing to light a long-neglected Bible truth about the special day that celebrates the creation of the world.
4) DIALOGUE WITH DEMONS:
The State of Death - God's Compassion
Way before Harry became famous, there were Kate and Maggie, and before that there was Andrew, who in 1844 claimed to have had a trance in a country graveyard. Yet, just as modern spiritualism started, God raised up a people to tell the truth about immortality.
5) OF TRANCES & TEENAGERS:
The Spirit of Prophecy - God's Conduit
Those who believe in the Bible know that God at times chooses to communicate with people through prophetic messengers. In the 1800's new movements were started with people who claimed to have had visions. But, how do these prophets square with Scripture?
6) THE BABBLE OVER THE BIBLE
The Scriptures - God's Communication
There was a sudden surge in Bible translations in the early 1800's; but also an attack on this by a major world spiritual leader. Then came the discovery that led to the profusion of modern Bible versions, which cause confusion. How should we respond?
7) THE DECALOGUE & DILEMMAS:
Standards - God's Counsel
Besides the expectation in the west of the Messiah's advent in 1844, in the east many awaited a major spiritual leader--thus Bahaism arose in 1844. This movement teaches that all religious truth is relative. But, God raised up a people who believe in biblical absolutes.
8) ANNOUNCEMENTS OF THE ANGELS:
Service: God's Commission
The desire of many members is that their church should grow! But how? Some in an attempt to make the church more attractive, seek to set aside standards. Is this the way? Including the use of an 1844 invention, how should we go about sharing God's good news?
