David Platt – Heaven, Hell, & End Times (from Secret Church)

Platt David

Someone has uploaded this video file (only) from David Platt’s Secret Church message on the End Times. If more video should be uploaded from this event I will certainly post it on this blog promptly. Video length is 80 minutes. Message is from the Good Friday 2013 broadcast of Secret Church)

David Platt, in video:

In the middle of our busy lives, we desperately need to contemplate the eternal. So many things that we focus our lives on will not matter 10 years from now…. and this is where Scripture draws our attention to tonight. To what will matter 10 billion years from now. A W Tozer said, „Let no one apologize for the powerful emphasis Christianity lays upon the doctrine of the world to come. Right there lies its immense superiority to everything else within the whole sphere of human thought or experience. When Christ arose from death, and ascended into heaven, He established forever 3 important facts. Namely:

  1. That this world has been condemned to ultimate dissolution.
  2. That the human spirit persists beyond the grave, and
  3. That there is, indeed, a world to come.

The church is constantly being tempted to accept this world as her home, and sometimes she has listened to the blandishments of those who would woo her away and use her for their own ends. But, if she is wise, she will consider that she stands in the valley, between the mountain peaks of eternity past and eternity to come. The past is gone forever, and the present is passing as swift as the shadow in a sun dial of Ahaz. Even if the earth should continue a million years, not one of us could stay to enjoy it. We would do well to think of the long tomorrow.”

We need to listen with humility. The kind of things we’re contemplating tonight, we cannot afford to be wrong on. We don’t wanna live in a world of conjecture, when it comes to eternal realities, especially when we know what is certain. God’s word is the only foundation we can stand upon when we think about these things. Jesus said, „Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. What transcends this world? God’s word! So, tonight, let’s minimize the thoughts of man and magnify the truth of God. The purpose for al these quotes (from Tozer and from men and women of God) is purely to point us to the truth of God, to the word of God. From the first 6 1/2 minutes of the video. There are 74 more minutes remaining.

A few other points:

  • PEOPLE DO NOT GO TO HEAVEN AND COME BACK – All the books written about heaven are best sellers even though the buyers are evangelical born again Christians who should know that in Proverbs 30:4 it says: „Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
    Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name? Surely you know!
     and in John 3:13 it says:  „No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man”.  ALL 4 accounts of heaven in Scripture  are visions, not journeys taken by dead people. These visions are rare: 4 biblical authors had visions about heaven and wrote what they saw: Isaiah, Ezekiel, Paul, and John. All of them were prophetic experiences, not near death experiences. Not one person raised from the dead in the Old Testament, or the New Testament ever wrote down what he or she experienced in heaven, including Lazarus, who had a lot of time in the grave, for 4 days. Paul describes it as being caught up in heaven, but gives no details. He sums it up in 3 verses. These 4 authors agree in that their visions are all fixated on the glory of God, which defines heaven and illuminates everything there. They are overwhelmed, chagrined, petrified, and put to silence by the sheer majesty of God’s holiness. Notably missing from all the biblical accounts are the frivolous features and juvenille attractions that seem to dominate every account of heaven, currently on the best seller list. Why do we buy this stuff, when we have the word of God? Let’s minimize the thoughts of man; magnify, trust, let’s bank our lives and our understanding of the future on the truth of God. (11:00)
