Join us as we continue our study of the Book of Revelation. This week we dive into the culmination of John's vision which is the New Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem is the cosmic portrayal of heaven on earth where God dwells intimately with mankind. Inside, the tree of life blossoms, providing healing and restoration while outside, those who have distanced themselves from citizenship. What can we learn from these chapters and how do they apply to us today?
We continue our journey through the Book of Revelation this week as we look at some of the more gruesome, bloody, and violent images in John's apocalypse. The two witnesses being killed in the streets, Yeshua returning with a sword to defeat His enemies and the winepress that produces an ocean of blood are just a few of the disturbing images John pens. How do we approach these scenes and what does God's wrath look like at the end of days? Revelation was written to be a letter of non-violent resistance in the face of evil empires. John was encouraging the seven churches, and future Christians, to protest through the resistance of empirical influence through means of subversive non-violent witness. This message is about non-violence in the book of revelation. Join us as we dive into the word and discover how these images help us stand firm in living out the witness of Christ in our lives.
