Join us in this series as we dive into one of the most divisive books of the Bible: Revelation. In this series we will explore what it means to be a Christian (christ-like), what the mark of the beast is (and what it isn't), and how we must live above the noise of the world.
In this sermon, we delve into the profound and often overlooked aspects of the Book of Revelation, emphasizing its message of victory, hope, and a glorious future for believers. We're reminded that as Christians, we represent more than just ourselves; we embody Christ's name in every aspect of our lives, a name that will be eternally stamped upon us. This concept is anchored in Revelation 14:1, where those with the Lamb's name are depicted standing with Him. We must recognize our distinct identity as Christians, "sealed" by the Lamb's blood, committing to a life set apart from worldly influences and aligned with the divine purpose of God's kingdom.
In this sermon, we explore the significance of the Book of Life, as revealed in the Book of Revelation. Our actions and attitudes play a crucial role in maintaining our place in this book, with the possibility of names being blotted out due to sin, as mentioned in Exodus 32:32-33. This message encourages an attitude of confidence and assurance in our salvation, emphasizing the promise of Revelation 3:5 that those who overcome will remain in the Book of Life and be acknowledged before God and His angels.
In today's sermon, we're diving deep into the significance of the Tree of Life, an enduring symbol from the book of Revelation and Genesis. It's fascinating how this tree plays a crucial role from the very beginning of Creation, and again in the New Creation. We're reminded that the fruits of this tree aren't just for the future; we can start picking them right now through our faith and actions.
In today's sermon, we're unpacking the profound contrast between Babylon, representing humanity's flawed aspirations, and the New Jerusalem, a divine masterpiece. We're reminded that while humanity has always strived to reach the heavens with our own "towers," God's city is a gift, descending from above, adorned and perfect. It's like a bride beautifully prepared for her groom.
