Revelation

We have reached the book of Revelation in our daily Bible reading! Let’s just admit it - Revelation is a very strange book. It’s full of angels and demons, lions and lambs, horses and dragons, ghouls, ghosts, and beasts. It’s a letter that reads more like a live drama that Jesus puts on for John during his time of worship. Traditionally, the last book of the Bible has been called “The Revelation to John”, but the first verse actually begins with the words “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.” It’s a revelation of Jesus, by Jesus, and about Jesus Christ. The title is not “Revelations” - even though there is a series of dramatic revelations. Literally, the title means “The Apocalypse.” Sadly, in our time the word “apocalypse” has come to mean, “Oh no! Something terrible is about to happen!” But when Revelation was written, the word simply meant “unveiling”, akin to lifting a cover off a box or pulling back a curtain in the theatre, 'opening up' or 'breaking through.' God gave Revelation to John to show his servants the things that must soon take place.” (v. 1). The book closes by telling the reader that there is a curse if you add or take away from the words in this prophecy - plagues will come in your life, and you will lose your share in the tree of life and the holy city described in this book - (that’s like, heaven!). I don’t know about you, but I want to be a recipient of the blessing, not the curse.

All I want for Christmas

What do you want for Christmas? Depending on the season of life, people can answer this question very differently. Now, what about this question... “What do you NEED for Christmas?” Different answer probably. Our wants are often very different from our needs. Wants can actually even blind us to our true needs. What we actually need is God’s presence made manifest in our lives... bringing peace, hope, healing, and direction. This Advent, as we look forward to celebrating Christmas, we are asking God to faithfully align our wants and our needs. So join us on the Sundays in Advent for our next message series, All I want for Christmas. What do you want for Christmas?

End Times

Are we actually living in the last days? Are there signs we should look for? How do I know if I’m ready? Who or what is the anti-Christ? The rapture? The millennium? Why does evil seem to be growing all around me?” This message series takes a deeper dive into biblical texts that help answer these questions.
