In this scene of worship before the throne of God, the great “Hallelujah’s” are for the Lord who has once for all judged evil and justified his people. The message to God’s people is to be confident in his righteousness, assured of our salvation, and pure in our devotion to Christ. Text: Revelation 15-19:10
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.
