Take a listen to the Easter series we had based on the book of Revelation.
Jesus rose from the dead. That is what Easter is all about. But what does that mean? What does that mean for you? This Easter season, join us as we study the book of Revelation together to see the Kingdom Jesus’ resurrection has made us a part of today and the heaven we will experience forever.
Because of Jesus’ victory over sin, death and the devil by his resurrection, he has been given the name above every name. He sits on the throne of heaven ruling all things for the benefit of those who trust in him. Let us today remember the power and authority of our Savior in heaven and on earth, especially when it seems evil rules. Jesus reigns for you today and forever.
Do you feel alone in your struggle against sin and your fight to remain faithful to your Savior? Well, you are not alone! You are part of a great multitude of believers in heaven and on earth. You are one of the saints today, those made holy by the blood of Jesus. Together with them, you worship the Lamb who was slain and you will continue to worship him for all eternity. You are far from alone.
Do you feel that the world isn’t as it should be? When we experience sorrow beyond words, pain without healing, grief without reprieve, it is easy to think, “This isn’t right… this shouldn’t happen… I was not meant to go through this.” If that is how you feel, you are right! Our world is not as it should be. It is broken. But one day, it won’t be anymore. One day we will witness the creation of a new heaven and a new earth where there will be no sorrow, no pain, no grief… and God will dwell among his people as he did in the beginning.
Our world is a dark place. We see darkness all around and within us. It often feels like there is no light. Don’t be fooled! The darkness has been defeated. The Light lives again. He also lives in us by faith and powers us with hope today. And one day we will dwell in His city forever with no need for any other source of heat, light or life. You are powered by THE Light!
Have you forgotten what is coming? In the busyness of today, have you lost sight of what needs to happen before tomorrow? At any time, Jesus, the Beginning and the End, could return. When he does, this world will end and the time to turn to him will be over. Are we ready for that? Are our friends, neighbors, and family? Are we ready for the beginning of eternity? Let us prepare for the Beginning and the End.
