Scripture: Revelation

The “D” Word

Revelation 2:18-29

The church at Thyatira had an impressive character, according to Jesus. Not only did they show forth deeds, love, faith, ministry, and perseverance, but they were even growing in these things. However, the Lord has a correction for them in an area that has gained a bit of a bad reputation – doctrine. From His letter to this church, we can gain some very timely encouragement on how to hold the line on false teaching today.

 

All Things New

Revelation 21:5, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Lamentations 3:21-23

No matter how bad we blew it yesterday, today is a new day and we can begin again because we serve the God who makes all things new!

** Note – due to technical difficulties, there is no sermon recording this week **

Here are the main points from the power point slides:

– God ultimately will make all things new! (Revelations 21:5)

– God can begin to make you new today! (2 Corinthians 5:17)

– God gives new starts every single day even in the midst of horrific circumstances! (Lamentations 3:21-23)

The Throne Room and the Scroll

Revelation 4-5
In this text, we are presented with a glorious, awe-inspiring, and central vision of the very throne room of God. By implication, we are also confronted with a heart-rending problem, as we see the contrast between how it is in heaven, vs. how it is on earth. Yet the text does not leave us there, but displays the glorious answer, central to history, of how the Lord brings about every last one of His purposes, in the answer that informs the whole book of Revelation, and is meant to drive us again and again to awestruck adoration and worship.
