The sermon above was preached by Pastor Chuck Longworth, Pastor Bryan Longworth, and Jeremy Longworth Sunday, September 16, 2001 at Covenant Tabernacle Church in White City, FL. If you recall the time, you recall that America was in shock from the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the failed attack on the White House. This was the Sunday when all football and baseball games were postponed. Churches were filled. Pastors called for repentance. Americans prayed.

Should we see this as a clear sign that we are end the end times? Should We Rejoice for Our Redemption Draws Neigh? Will Jesus soon rapture his church? What signs did Jesus say would indicate the beginning of the end times? What does the Bible have to say about these questions? Listen to my Sermon entitled How Should We React to Unrest in the Middle East where I tackle these questions from a Biblical perspective.
