   Having Your Cake and Eating It Too?
   Revelation 2: 1-7, 18-29
Sunday Morning Service,  May 1, 2016
 
Some Christians and churches take a "you can't have your cake and eat it too" approach to the relationship between love and truth.  They can't seem to love while they stand for truth. However, the Scriptures clearly show that love and truth do coexist and must dwell together.  What is the true relationship of love and truth? What do believers and churches look like who hold to truth in a loving way? Revelation 2 proves three examples showing us that a Christ exalting church lovingly stands for truth.

   Heavenly Perspective through Earthly Trials
   Revelation 7
Sunday Morning Service,  November 15, 2015
 
The book of Revelation chronicles end time events, describing the end of the world as we know it. Many of the chapters in Revelation describe the judgments of God, but Revelation 7 contains a “break in the action” that John sees and records. The two stories in this chapter help us get our focus on God and see life from a heavenly perspective. God sovereignly delivers His people; therefore, you must view your earthly circumstances with an eternal perspective.

   The New Testament Idea of Repentance - Part 2
   Luke 24:45-48; Acts 2:38; 3:17-21; 11:1-18; 17:22-31; 20:17-21; 2 Corinthians 12;21; 2 Peter 3:9; Revelation 2-3
Wednesday Evening Service,  March 18, 2015
 
In Part 1, we saw that “repentance” is expressed by three different words in the New Testament, and that those words carry the idea of turning or returning, regretting, and changing one’s mind. In Part 2 we continue our study of the word “repentance” by looking specifically at the use of metanoia—or, a change of mind—in the New Testament. Then we will draw some conclusions based on our observations of this word in its various contexts.

   God with Us
   Various Texts; Revelation 21 - 22
Sunday Morning Service,  February 15, 2015
 
The Bible contains a number of references to God’s being with us. Looking at the big picture of Scripture reveals God's plan to gradually dwell with His people more and more, culminating in the full fellowship with God in eternity. The understanding of God with us should encourage our faith while strengthening our trust, commitment, and obedience to Him.

Wednesday Evening Service,  July 20, 2011
There are some 38 -42 judgments of God in the Bible, depending on what is and what is not included. There are seven future judgments that will take place following the rapture of the church - 1) Judgment of Believer's Works (Bema Seat), 2) the Tribulation Judgments (seven of each - Seals, Trumpets and Vials), 3) Final Judgment upon the Nation of Israel, 4) Judgment of the Nations, 5) Judgment upon the Fallen Angels, 6) Judgment upon the Beast, Antichrist, False Prophet, the Great Harlot and Satan and 7) The Great White Throne Judgment.

Judgment is always against sin except at the Bema Seat, where believer's will be rewarded on the basis of their works.

   The Great Tribulation
   Isaiah 24-27; Jeremiah 30; Daniel 9, 12; Matthew 24-25; Revelation 4-20
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 29, 2011
From time to time we witness amazing catastrophes upon the earth, from wild fires, to floods, violent tornadoes, hurricanes, earth quakes, tsunamis, pandemics, wars, and many other disasters. But these events are mere tremors compared to the Great Tribulation prophesied in Scripture. The Bible speaks of a time of unprecedented angst and destruction that will shake the foundations of the planet and kill literally billions of people. What is the significance of this time of great trouble? Do these Scriptures foretell real events or figurative? In this study we will read through several passages which foretell the Great Tribulation, look at various views on how to interpret the Tribulation, and finally answer the question, “What shall we do?” in light of the Bible’s teaching.

   The Eternal State: The Goal of Redemptive History
   Genesis 1-2; Revelation 21-22
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 8, 2011
When we take a trip it is important to know our destination. If we do not know where we are headed we wander or become lost. As believers in Christ, we have answers for this world because our eschatology teaches us not only who we are but also where we are going. In this session we will consider the ‘metanarrative’ or ‘grand story’ of all of redemption history by looking at the beginning of the story and at the end of the story. We begin where the Bible begins, in Genesis 1-2, and end where the Bible ends, in Revelation 21-22. Comparing these chapter pairs encourages us that God has a sovereign plan, a plan which brings God and His people into perfect oneness.

   Sensationalism Versus Substance - Part 3
   Daniel 9:24-27; Acts 1:6-8; Isaiah 2:1-4; 11-12; 2 Kings 21, 23; Psalm 74; Lamentations 3; Revelation 20:1-4
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 1, 2011
Putting together a timeline of end time events is sometimes like doing a jigsaw puzzle. People’s puzzles that they construct sometimes differ from one another, sometimes because a person doesn’t have all of the right pieces, or because he is using different pieces, or because there is disagreement about what the picture should look like in the end. In this session we will finish our introduction to Eschatology by considering the issue of ‘biblical hermeneutics,’ or the science of putting together the biblical pieces to make the correct picture. Ultimately we must answer the question, are the biblical pieces present, and may they be arranged in an order sufficient to support a dispensational eschatology, i.e. a view of the end times in which God finishes His plan with the nation of Israel?

   The Lord's Table as Worship
   Psalm 41:13; Revelation 1:7; 7:12; 1 Corinthians 10:14-21; 11:17-34
Sunday School,  August 29, 2010
In this session, which brings us near the end of our series, we will take a look at two topics: the subject of "the amen" in worship, and the significance of the Lord's Table. The "amen" is traditional language in biblical worship by which we affirm and commit ourselves to what God has said. Likewise, when we gather around the Lord's Table, we are at once remembering what Christ has done for us in His cross work as well as affirming that work by our identification with Him and with each other.
