avatar

Key Thought : To be a part of God’s last movement requires an urgent sense of mission to fulfill His call to reach the world with the gospel.

gless10[Teaching plan for The Eschatological Day of Atonement December 2, 2013]

1. Have a volunteer read Daniel 8:9-13, 23-25.

a. Ask class members to share a thought on what the most important point in this text is.
b. Do you ever ask the question, how long? Can things get much worse? Are things much better now than Sodom and Gomorrah?
c. Personal Application: How could we be guilty of playing God, or putting ourselves in His place? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your relatives states: “What is this “daily” that the little horn takes away? What does this mean and how does it show the little horn is against the Prince of princes?” How would you respond to your relative?

2. Have a volunteer read Daniel 8:13,14.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. How do we know that evenings and mornings represent days instead of half-days?
c. Personal Application: How urgent is your message to others that we are living in the time of judgment and Jesus is returning soon? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your friends states, “What does it mean to restore or cleanse the sanctuary? Is this the temple in Jerusalem that was desecrated and destroyed? Is it going to be restored soon?” How would you respond to your friend?

3. Have a volunteer read Daniel 9:24-27.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the most important point is in this passage.
b. How do we reckon the 70 weeks and its starting point?
(Note: See Ezra 7:7-11 – the seventh year of Artaxerxes was 457BC. 69 X 7 = 483 years, 27AD Jesus was anointed in the river by John. Luke 3:1,21. In 31AD, In the middle of the last seven years, Jesus died on the cross, cut off but not for Himself. The seventy weeks x 7 = 490 years. In 34AD two things happened. Acts 9 + 10. Peter was sent to the Gentiles and Paul was sent to the Gentiles. Probation was closed for the Jewish nation as a whole.)
c. Personal Application: Why do some people cut off the last seven years and apply verse 27 to antichrist instead of Christ? Share your thoughts.
d. Case Study: One of your neighbors states, “How does the seventy weeks prophecy seal up the vision and anoint the Most Holy? Does the seventy weeks have anything to do with the 2300 days?” How would you respond to your neighbor?

4. Have a volunteer read Revelation 14:6,7.

a. Ask class members to share a short thought on what the main idea of this text is.
b. Why does this message have specific relevance to the Seventh-day Adventist Church?
b. Personal Application: Why is the judgment hour message, the health message, the Sabbath message, and the call to obey God called the everlasting gospel? Share your thoughts.
c. Case Study: Think of one person who needs to hear a message from this week’s lesson. Tell the class what you plan to do this week to share with them.

(Note : “Truth that is not lived, that is not imparted, loses its life-giving power, its healing virtue. Its blessings can be retained only as it is shared.” MH p. 149.
