2017 was the 15th annual conference sponsored by the Last Days Bible Conference Association. We cannot help but rejoice as we look back at the weekend.
Due to a scheduling conflict we could not get into the hall at the usual time on Friday, so the conference was shorter this year. That meant we only had three speakers instead of four, with a total of nine sessions. But that did not keep the people away. In fact, those who have been a part of this conference from the beginning say that this year was the best attendance we have ever had.There were over 200 people at most of the sessions.
Dr. Bill Goetz gave a series of messages entitled "Eternal Truth for Trying Times," which focused on some of the tragic errors that are infiltrating the Christian church today - unbiblical ecumenism, emergent teaching, and error regarding the Holy Spirit, especially regarding the health and prosperity teaching. He concluded with a look at how our nation is moving toward judgment with its acceptance of the "Iniquity of the Amorites."
Pastor Billy Crone gave two sessions on the way in which technology is developing drone and artificial intelligence systems that threaten humanity and seem to be leading to the forces of destruction during the 7-year Tribulation that is described in the book of Revelation. He followed that with two sessions on the Rapture and the importance of studying prophecy, pointing out that, as Christians we do not need to fear this technology, for God has promised that we will not go through the time of God's wrath.
Larry Mitchell presented one message filled with important information and biblical instruction for anyone who might find themselves here during the Tribulation because they failed to respond to Christ's invitation for salvation prior to the Rapture.
Scott Gillespie of Action International Ministries did a great great as conference host, keeping everyone informed and the sessions running on schedule.
It was a great two days, and we pray that the results of this conference will have an eternal impact.
