This passage gives us the picture of Jesus Christ overcoming Satan and sustaining God’s people in the ongoing spiritual battle of this life. The message is that Christ wins and we fight. The call is for endurance, keeping the commandments of God and our faith in Jesus. Text: Revelation 12:1-14:13
On Sunday, we looked at Revelation 8-11, where the seven trumpets are explained. We saw that these devastations are reminders for us to repent and believe in Christ. How does God’s kindness relate to these devastations we see in our world?
Through warnings, the word, and the witness of the church, Jesus is calling the world to repentance and faith in him. In this heavenly scene, the final judgement is complete, and Christ is reigning forever and ever. Repent and reign with him. Text: Revelation 8-11
Looking back at Revelation 6-7, Scott and Justin discuss how we deal with the tension between God’s sovereign hand over history, and the suffering we experience living in a fallen world.
The picture of Jesus Christ we get from Revelation 6-7 is that he remains in control throughout all of history and he keeps his people for the throne room of heaven. We are called to trust in the Lamb to cleanse our hearts and follow the Shepherd to our home. Text: Revelation 6-7
