The Book of Revelation

During the months of April, May, and June we will be focusing on the Book of Revelation. Concerning the book of Revelation M. Eugene Boring writes: “Although every biblical book is subject to misinterpretation, no other part of the Bible has provided such a happy hunting ground for all sorts of bizarre and dangerous interpretations.”

We see this all around us: people predicting the end of the world, preachers hollering about the dragon and the false-prophet, and name-calling based on weird interpretations of the book of Revelation. What we are going to do is look at what Revelation meant to those in first century Asia — but also what the Lord wants to say to us in the 21st century.

In Revelation 2.10 John writes: “Do not fear what you are about to suffer. Beware, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested, and for ten days you will have affliction. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.” Let us delve in to the book of Revelation so we can learn what it means to lay down our lives for our faith. This teaching series will be during our 8:45am & 11am services at Warren's Grove. All are invited!
