The War of the Worlds (March 16th)

Pastor Gary preached from Revelation 15, 16 and 20.

Sermon Notes

One of the primary themes of Revelation is that justice (the judgment of God) is going to come.

Let’s consider questions that surround this theme.

Question number one: Who will judge? (2 Timothy 4:1, Revelation 16:5)

Question number two: Will Christians go through the judgment? (Romans 14:10-12, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Revelation 20)

So the last question for today is What about this Armageddon business? 

Wrap up: God is passionate about justice, and God wants his people to be passionate about justice. Pray for it and work for it in this life, in this community, and in this world. Just because God will make all things right at the end of time doesn’t mean we can’t set some things right, right now.
