Revelations  of  Jesus for  His  Church

Angel_edited.png

                        The Book of Revelation may be the most misunderstood book in the Bible. However, if we better understand the context, community, and nature of this letter, the text can reshape the way we see the world. We could read Jesus’ message to the seven churches not just as a fantastic and mystical prophecy,  but rather a practical guide for believers seeking to follow Him in a lost and broken culture.

Join us at Faith Center for a 7-sermon conversation around the The Revelation of Jesus Christ to seven historic churches and what it means for your life today.

These seven Churches all focused on blazing a path for Christ. As they went, Jesus gave correction and clarity. Although they had made movement for the mission, they each had a fatal flaw. We can learn from examining their patterns and Jesus' response.

the church of

Laodicea

Flaw: None. Smyrna was faithful in the face of persecution.

Lesson: Although we may suffer greatly, the length of tribulation will be short compared to the promise of eternal life.

the church of

Thyatira

Strength: Deeds, love, faith, service, patient endurance, constant improvement.

Flaw: Justifying teachings that led to idolatry.

Lesson: To share in Christ's victory we must avoid false teaching and hold firm to the truth.

the church of

Philadelphia

Strength: Faithful to the word, true to Jesus' name.

Flaw: None. Despite its weakness, the church in Philadelphia remained strong because of its faithfulness.

Lesson: Blessings come when we maintain our faith despite life's tribulations. When we persevere despite weakness, we stand strong.
