Sermons about Apocalypse
Instead of pointing our fingers at God and blaming Him for the struggles that we and others face, let us commit to acknowledging that bad things happen as a result of sin. God is love, and He can have nothing to do with sin. He did not create it and He cannot endorse it. Let us endeavor to dedicate our lives to Him and seek His Face. Let others see our faith and come to God in humility and gratitude.
A study of the Book of Revelation exploring the end of the world and the only thing that can save it.

We will also look at the importance of a little word called genre and how it impacts reading and understanding the Bible.

John blends epistle, prophecy, and apocalyptic literature for a whirlwind depiction of Jesus' reign, return, and consummation of the world. While Revelation can does offer insight into the future, its greater import is providing encouragement to present church. The book likewise provides the greatest hymn (Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lamb) and prayer (Come, Lord Jesus, come) God's beloved will ever know. Thus, until the return of Jesus, God's beloved are to worship him while waiting.
