DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  • How does the knowledge of God’s future judgment impact your daily life?  How does it impact your personal ministry to others?
  • What evidence do you see that the heart of man resents and resists the truth about God’s judgment?  
  • What benefit do we gain when we fix our thoughts upon Jesus’ Second Coming?  
  • What thoughts come to mind when you think about Jesus’ Second Coming?  How do these thoughts help you live your life today?
