When you think about the future, how do you feel? Perhaps you’ve seen projections about the year 2050, or 2075. Bananas and bees will be extinct. There will be swimming at the North and South Poles. World War III will be going on, and the dollar will be worth pennies. You’ve heard the end-time predictions.
Perhaps political instability around the world, global warming, the flu virus, or a nuclear holocaust cause you grave concern. There are a lot of valid concerns about the welfare of our world. However, as we continue in the Easter season, we have very legitimate reasons to be confident. This is why during May (and a little into June) our sermon series Revealed will come from the book of Revelation.
Most people think of Revelation as a book of beasts, of code-cracking, and of dizzying amounts of pictures, numbers, and interpretations. The dominant image many are left with is a frightening and fear-inducing one.
There is a fair amount of mystery, subterfuge, and dramatic storytelling within the pages of Revelation. Unfortunately, sometimes the message of hope—which is the premise and goal of John’s Revelation—is lost entirely.
Join us this month, (or listen online at our website) as we seek to recapture a more biblical appreciation for what Jesus, and the Apostle John, try to impart to us through this exciting book.
