Freedom is an exhilarating word to the ear of one who is burdened and oppressed. Freedom from political tyranny; freedom from addiction; freedom from debt are all phrases billions of people around the world have longed to hear. Almost 250 years ago, America gained independence from the tyranny of King George III and a nation was founded upon principles of personal liberty. The subsequent expression oft-stated and sung "Let Freedom Ring" intimates proclaims the desire to see freedom spread to every soul and every land. The Christian enjoys even greater freedom and should be even more zealous to spread this liberty to people around the world. Are you free or yet oppressed and in bondage?
Prompting His Olivet Discourse recorded in Matthew 24, Jesus was asked by His disciples: "What will be the sign of thy coming?" The question was in response to Jesus' prophecy that the temple of Jerusalem would be destroyed. The Lord said several things would come to pass before this took place including political turmoil and natural disasters. Was Jesus referring to the end times or to events that took place during the lifetime of His disciples? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at the context of the prophecy to discern if Jesus was pointing to an event in AD 70 or was He speaking of His second coming at the end of time?
