RCCG House Fellowship Leader Manual 17 October 2021, Lesson 7 – No One Knows That Day Except The Father

TOPIC: No One Knows That Day Except The Father (Scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 17 October 2021 Anthem)

OPENING PRAYER: Father deposit in me your spirit to know that day.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leaders should ask members how God did wonders in their lives and how wonderful is God to us believers.

MEMORY VERSE: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” – Matthew 24:36

BIBLE TEXT: Matthew 25:1-30 (KJV)

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

RCCG House Fellowship Leader Manual 17 October 2021

13 Watch, therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants and delivered unto them his goods.

15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several abilities; and straightway took his journey.

16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

18 But he that had received one went and dug in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.

19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

RCCG House Fellowship Leader Manual 17 October 2021

20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming, I should have received mine own with usury.

RCCG House Fellowship Leader Manual 17 October 2021

28 Take therefore the talent from him and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him, that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: The appropriate date of Christ’s coming is not known by any person or angels except God the Father only Mark 13:32. Jesus stated clearly and emphatically that no one knows the day and the hour when he will return except the Father. He illustrated this with the illustration of Noah’s flood in Matthew 24:37-39, that people were preoccupied with their own pursuits of life and refused to heed the warnings of God. They didn’t realise what was happening until the flood came and swept them all away. His second coming will be like that, it will come as a total surprise.
