The Antichrist

When one thinks of Revelation often it is the iconic images of the Beast/Antichrist that pop into our head. The "Beast" is precisely the subject we've come upon this weekend in Revelation 13:1-10. He's been "identified" and talked about in every generation since Revelation was penned but what are the implications of the Antichrist? Come join the discussion of the First Beast this Sunday morning!...Keep Reading

One of the most difficult passages in Revelation...

This Sunday morning we will be upon one of the most disputed passages in all of Revelation. Some say chapter 11 is the single most difficult section of the entire book. At least 5 broad interpretations, with variations in each, are popular amongst Christians in regards to chapter 11. When coming across difficult passages are we to avoid discussing them as though strangers talking politics? Personally, I'd rather embrace the complexities of this book while striving to honor and remain faithful the gospel message. ...Keep Reading

No matter if you want to deepen your understanding of these 5 points for growth or refutation (if that's your pleasure), I'd highly recommend this quick, simple 100 page read. ...Keep Reading

Our Church Is About To Let You Down...

Let us not pursue the truth of our imperfections (everyone’s already found that truth) but rather focus on the truth and implications of Christ’s resurrection. It is the latter truth that is the remedy to the former....Keep Reading

Philadelphia, Brotherly Love?

These letters are a chance for us to look in the mirror as a church. We should aspire to that which the churches are commended for, hold fast to the ways in which they are encouraged and search ourselves as we examine each rebuke. The bottom line is that we want a church that pleases Jesus. Rather than be a church that is pronounced "dead" as in Sardis for neglecting the ways of God, may we be diligent to pursue holiness and sound doctrine to the glory of King Jesus. ...Keep Reading

Smyrna, things are going to get worse...

We're continuing our study of Revelation this Sunday with a look at the church in Smyrna. Christians in this church were living in extreme persecution. With their lives on the line each and every day, Christians in Smyrna desperately needed encouragement and power to persevere in their faith amongst a hostile culture. ...Keep Reading

This particular passage brought so much hope to the persecuted Christians of the 1st century. That same hope is made available to us through God's word here in this fascinating book!...Keep Reading
