This podcast is updated with the messages preached at Sonrise Church in Palmdale, California.
Death and Resurrection
First and second death? First and second resurrection? What's this all about, really? Inn this message, we talk about the ideas of the 1st and 2nd deaths and resurrections to bring some clarity to these questions, as well as application. If Satan was bound at the 1st death, that will inevitably affect our worldview as well as behavior as humanity awaits the 2nd, ultimate death. For Christians, we have a great hope of a 2nd resurrection that informs how we live and how we see the world as well.
An Angry God of Love? The Seven Bowls of Revelation 15-16
God’s wrath raises the question of God’s love. Is God an angry God? How can God be a God of love if he seems angry at humanity?
The Woman’s Son, Revelation 12-14
The theme of the story is war in heaven. When did Satan fall? Probably not when you think. Who are the stars that were swept out of the sky and why did they join the Dragon's armies to fight against heaven?
The Ark in the Temple of God, Revelation 8-11
In this message we look at the relationship between the 7 seals and the 7 trumpets. We also begin to place the seals and trumpets into a chronology to understand the flow of the narrative of Revelation and the coming of the end.
Consuming God’s Word
Have you ever read the Bible and just had no idea what you read? There's good news! We live in a culture that loves to consume digital media content and so there has never been a better time to consume the Word of God than today.
What is sin?
Yes, we said the 's' word. Sin. What is it? Have you committed it? And what do you do about it? Sin is bigger than any of us realize. We are sinners at the core of our being because we have been born with an identity of sinner, rooted in the patterns of living and philosophies of this world.
