The Tarrying Time

Scripture: Habakkuk 2:2-4, Matthew 25:1-13
Date: 08/15/1998 
Jesus is coming very soon. Is there a time of "ripening" before His coming? We can observe in the natural world a time of quiet and preparation before something happens. This sermon looks at the parable of the wise and foolish virgins and the tarrying time before the bridegroom comes. Pastor Batchelor looks at the chronology of world history and shares how close we are to the end of time.
