We believe that verse by verse Biblical teaching is the best way to feed growing Christians. It is our prayer that as we teach in this fashion, God will reveal the issues in our lives that matter today.  He has always been faithful to give us just the right word for every season. We are currently in a year round teaching series going through Scripture book by book called, “Around the Bible in 366 Days”.

Week 21- The Great Tribulation and Jesus’ ‘Olivet Discourse’ (Matt 24, Mark 13, Luke 21)

Much like Daniel’s prophecy we covered last week; Jesus’ giving His disciples signs of the end of the age (even referring to Daniel’s words) and declaring His second coming are important to view alongside the letter of Revelation. Is the great tribulation Jesus is warning about the same as what we see in Revelation? How […]

Week 20- The Great Tribulation and Daniel’s ’70 Weeks’ (Dan 9:20-27)

Many view Daniel’s prophecy of ‘seventy-sevens’ or ‘seventy weeks’ as having direct import in deciphering the book of Revelation. From this base, many understandings of an end-time tribulation and possible timings of when Christ will ‘rapture’ His church or how long the church will suffer until He does so come about. We will consider if […]

Praying in the Spirit

Week 19 – Sweet & Sour (Revelation 10)

There is a break between the sixth and seventh trumpet blast (the second and third woe) just as there was earlier between the opening of the sixth and seventh seals. John sees an angel who says that will no longer be any delay. He is also told that when the seventh trumpet sounds the mystery […]

Nothing is Impossible with God

Week 18 – Trumpets and Woes (Part 2) (Revelation 9)

The trumpets of God continue to blast as warnings for earth, each deliver terror, yet mercy to spur repentance. Three woes are declared to come with the final three of seven trumpets; we look at the fifth and sixth. The first four trumpets harm the wicked in their physical being; the last three touch man […]

Week 17 – Trumpets and Woes (Part 1) (Revelation 8:6-13)

Jesus opens the seventh seal. After silence in heaven for about half an hour (perhaps the only time in all eternity past, present, and future) comes trumpet blasts. The trumpets are God’s warnings for the world of coming judgment and wrath; the world being offered mercy before the seven bowls are poured out. We look […]

Week 16- Prayers of the Saints (Revelation 8:1-5)

We see in Revelation 8:1-5 and earlier in Revelation 5:8 that the prayers of the saints are collected, kept, and utilized. They are called incense: a savory aroma before the throne of God!  In fact, these prayers are a huge part of the instrument God uses to usher in the end of the world with […]

Week 15 – Marking the Servants of God (Revelation 7)

In between the sixth and seventh seal being opened we see the living God marking those who serve Him. The seals on their foreheads were to be given before the four angels were given power to harm the land and the sea. The number of those who are marked, or sealed are 144,000. Numbers represent […]

Week 14- The Lord Waits (Revelation 7:1-3)

Throughout Scripture the Lord’s amazing patience is on display.  Waiting before He punishes the wicked and waiting before His wrath is poured out.  Thank You Lord for Your grace!

Week 13 – Wrath and Vengeance, Oh My! (Revelation 6:9-17)

The opening of the fifth seal finds the slaughtered saints crying out. The sixth seal introduces the final cataclysm. This is a clear picture of the appearing of Jesus and the terror that those who have not surrendered their lives to Him will experience when they see Him! It stresses the horrors of the day […]

Week 12 – Four Seals, Four Horsemen (Revelation 6:1-8)

Only the Lamb who was slain is worthy to break the seven seals and open the scroll. We will address the first four seals that are opened. As he breaks each seal a horse and its rider is unleashed upon the earth. John is shown specific things that will happen with much imagery. It is […]

Week 11 – The Lamb of God (Revelation 5)

The presentation of the Gospel in Revelation is declared through powerful symbols. On this Easter Sunday, Jesus’ redemption from Revelation chapter 5 is revealed interspersed with worship. We see what the scroll with seven seals in the hand of God is. The Lion who is also the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ alone can open […]

Week 10 – The Throne of God

John is given a vision of the throne room of God. We are at the very center of the universe! In the center is a throne. This isn’t just about a magnificent chair where God the Father sits. It is about His ruling power and authority in His heavenly court. The God of the universe […]

Week 9 – What makes Jesus Nauseous (Revelation 3:14-22)

We come to the seventh and final church Jesus tells John to write to, Laodicea. This is the ‘going through the motions’ church. The ‘I’ve got this!’ and ‘I don’t need anything’ church. Jesus doesn’t mince words—He says that they make Him sick. He will vomit them out of His mouth. Jesus counsels them that […]

Week 8 – Spiritually Dead & Open Doors (Revelation 3:1-13)

Jesus addresses the churches at Sardis and Philadelphia. The first, Sardis, has a reputation of being alive, but are in fact dead. Outward appearances can fool many. But God looks at the heart. They are told to wake up! They must assess their spiritual decline and become doers of His word, not just hearers. The […]

Week 7 – What You Tolerate (Revelation 2: 18-29)

Jesus addresses the church at Thyatira. Here is a church that has great love and faith. He knows their deeds and in fact that they are doing more than they did at first. However, they have allowed much. Sin and listening to those who call themselves prophets has permeated their culture as a group of […]

Week 6 – Faithfulness & Compromise (Revelation 2:8-17)

Jesus addresses the churches at Smyrna and Pergamum. As with all seven churches that John is told to write to we can relate to their hardships, what they get right, and the sin they have as well. Smyrna has been afflicted and are about to suffer more. They are encouraged to remain faithful. Faithful, even […]

Week 5 – First Love (Revelation 2:1-7)

Jesus addresses the church at Ephesus. In so doing, He also addresses the Church in any time or location. Ephesus was a city of amazing wealth and comparative ease. A church in whose people work hard, have great deeds, persevere, and are discerning and knowledgeable in defending the faith. But, they have forsaken their first […]

Week 4 – The Lampstands (Revelation 1:10-20)

In John’s vision of Jesus, He is among the lampstands. Here we have a picture of Jesus as the Great High Priest trimming the wicks and filling the lamps with oil, drawing heavily from Old Testament pictures. He reveals that the symbolism used of lampstands and stars represents His Church—the light of the world. This […]

Week 3 – Vision of Jesus Who Overcomes Fear (Revelation 1:9-20)

John is persecuted and banished to the Island of Patmos. There, he sees a vision of the glorified Jesus Christ and gives an incredible description of Him. His response upon seeing the Son of Man is just as telling as is the description itself. Jesus then majestically addresses FEAR once and for all!!

Week 2 – How Do I Read Revelation?

What a daunting task it is for many of us to start to study and understand the Book of Revelation. How can one make sense of the great imagery of the only prophetic book in the New Testament? In week one we established what the subject and object of the book is. Now we turn […]

Week 1 – What is Revelation Really About?

To kick off our study of the Book of Revelation, we first tackle an important question—what is the last book of the Bible about? The subject of the Revelation is not the end of times, signs, symbols, the beast, the dragon, Armageddon, lampstands, or angels. The object of the book is not heaven, things we […]

Week 4- Family Missions: The Effect of Being on Mission Together

(Luke 19:1-10) To paraphrase Jesus’ Great Commission, He said, “As you go… make disciples.” (Matt 28:19). We are called upon to incorporate mission into the mundane of our everyday—as we are already going and doing things. When Jesus encountered Zacchaeus, He didn’t add anything to His day; he just did something with a different intentionality. […]
