Lessons from the Book of Revelation, from Pastor Mike

I conclude my time at Cross Winds and head into retirement, I look forward to finishing with a look at several lessons from the last book of the Bible – the Revelation of Jesus Christ to John.  Most people like to avoid this book as it is written in a strange style with weird creatures and cryptic events.

But it is in the Bible for a reason.  It is written at the end of the first century AD to people who are important to the Apostle John.  As followers of Jesus, they were facing terrific persecution from the Roman Empire and struggling to live out their faith under great pressure in very difficult and unfriendly circumstances.  Even though Revelation can be hard to understand and even scary – it is in the Bible to bring hope and encouragement to anyone who wants to follow Jesus Christ. Although it was not written to us, it has much to say to us here in the 21st century.  So we’re going to dig and mine some of the gold here.  I encourage you to read in the book of Revelation, but don’t worry about the understanding all the details and what it all means – just get a feel for the word pictures the author John is sharing.  Even without a detailed study, these images and scenes express hope and confidence.  Even though the power of evil is strong, the strength of God is much greater.  Even though God’s people face difficulties, we are never left alone.  Even though chaos seems to be in control, Christ is at work and the  Kingdom of God will prevail.

"Worthy is the Lamb"      Revelation 4 & 5

In his vision, John looks deeply into the center of heaven, and there he sees a throne with Jesus first pictured as a Lion and then as a Lamb.                                                                        And all of heaven is focused on this throne a worshipping Jesus.  As we often say in an understatement about Jesus-"He's kinds of a big deal."

On this Mother's Day we celebrate our Mothers.

"Trials, Tribulation, and Patience"   Revelation 6: 1-9 & 7: 13-17

Sometimes people think that because they have faith in God, their life should be smooth sailing-that they should be spared for trials and heartache. But Jesus had a clear word for his followers; "In this world you will have tribulation, but be cheerful, I have overcome the world."

The book of Revelation encourages us to persevere and trust that even though times may be tough, they will not last forever and God will never abandon us.
