Revelation | Opening the Abyss - Revelation 9:1-12
For the first time in the book of Revelation we see demons. The evil angels of the abyss are unleashed upon mankind to torment and pursue them. Revelation 9 shows us what happens when God's hand of restraint is removed and demons are given freedom on the earth.
Revelation | Breaking the Earth - Revelation 8:1-12
In the next phase of the Lamb bringing about the judgment of God we see the seventh seal opened. The seventh seal contains the seven trumpet judgments that commence the fulfillment of the martyrs prayers for justice poured out upon the earth, the trees, the seas and the skies. God responds to the prayers of the martyrs who have cried out for justice on the earth.
Revelation | In Wrath, Remember Mercy - Revelation 7:9-17
John's visions take him back to heaven where he sees a multitude too large to number coming out of the great tribulation. While God's wrath is poured out on the earth, God, rich in mercy, shelters, satisfies, and shepherds His people into His presence.
Revelation | Restoration and Protection - Revelation 7:1-8
How important are the promises of God to you? In Revelation 7 we see the remarkable resurrection of a nation. Fulfilling several Old Testament prophesies the nation of Israel takes center stage in the last years of human history to reclaim their place as God's messengers of mercy in the day of wrath. God has been and ever will be faithful to every one of His promises.
Easter Sunday | The First Witness - John 20:11-18
This Easter we look at where the Christian faith began, with the first witness of the empty tomb. Every Christian can trace his or her story back to the very first encounter of the risen Christ and Mary Magdalene. When Mary's sorrow encounters the resurrection, her life is never the same.
Gospel Partnership | Philippians 1:1-11
Paul’s letter to the Philippians consistently points us to the joy that should be found in those who’ve been adopted into God’s family. This passage displays for us God's gifts of grace and peace and the joy these gifts produce in the life a believer. We also see the partnership we have with one another and the Spirit, as well as a challenge to grow in love, knowledge and obedience to God.
