The Relevance of Revelation: What the Last Book of the Bible Has to Say to Us Today
Renewing Our Minds Class by Joshua Moritz PhD |Sundays @ 9:00 am | Begins Feb. 10
Given the irresistible might, worldwide power, and alluring attractiveness of the beasts of politics, prosperity, and popular culture, how will their deceitful ideologies ever be exposed, and how will God establish his compassionate and just rule upon the earth? Given the emotionally enticing seduction of false faith, how will God’s timeless and transcendent truth ever be fully known and embraced by those who dwell on the earth? For early Christians these were the questions to which the message of Revelation was the answer. The Book of Revelation is a tale of two earthly cities—one in which we presently dwell and one which is yet to be revealed. Babylon the Great is the city within which faithful Christians now struggle; the New Jerusalem, which is yet to be fully revealed upon the renewed earth is the dwelling place for the faithful of God who have conquered. How are Christians to live in between the times and the tensions of these two cities? How are we to remain true to God? How are we to not get lured in by false prophets? How are we to discern the spirit of anti-Christ in our midst? In this class we will discuss these questions (and many others) as we unveil the rich bounty of Revelation’s message and meaning through an intensive study of the book.
