6 Week Sermon Series: Revelation: The End Times Unveiled
The book of Revelation is the unveiling of how the end times are going to go down, Jesus’ victory over evil, and what that means for how we must live in the moments we have right now. This book was written to first century believers who were facing overwhelming persecution, and needed real hope that one day they would experience the spiritual rest they were designed to have from evil and hardship. It gave them strength to continue and persevere. Revelation is also for believers today so we’ll keep our eyes on the one who ensures we can be overcomers in a world of sin and evil. We’ll discover that the rich imagery and symbolism point to some literal truths that are paths for us to follow in the sometimes confusing, difficult, and sometimes heartbreaking spiritual war we find ourselves in.
Join us for the unveiling of Jesus’ final victory of good over evil, of truth over Satan’s lies, and discover hope that’s an anchor we can depend on.
