Week 4 – Comfort of Revelation

“Behold, I am making all things new.” Is He talking about the 2020 election or the success of efforts for social justice, resolution of racial tension and the reversal of climate change? Nope, He is not. It’s much bigger than that, it is more enduring than that and much more practical. Not a flash in the pan or temporary fix. Even with the eye on the future the present is given hope, peace and real love. The comfort is for all with hope that enlivens today.

The common issue that effects all mankind is resolved in an unimaginable way. Join us at St. John’s Lutheran Church this Sunday at 9am for a message of comfort that transforms life now and in the hereafter.

Week 3 – Comfort of Revelation

Apocalyptic math, it’s easier than you may think. 144,000 will be saved from Israel, but what about the rest of us? The 144,000 number is often used to try and scare the hell out of people. But in reality, it’s a proclamation of the good news of salvation. This is at the heart of the comfort that comes from the Book of Revelation. John is shown a vast multitude in white robes standing before the Lamb. Salvation is not just for the Jews, but for all who trust in Christ from every nation.

The Elder asks: “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have the come? ” What comfort is there for our tragic time and is this the great tribulation?

Join us at St. John’s Lutheran Church this Sunday at 9am for a message of comfort for times of great tribulation.

Week 2 – Comfort of Revelation

Who is worthy to enter into the presence of God. Some teach, what we need to do in order to be worthy to enter heaven. In our heart we know it, or spend a great deal of energy denying it. Comfort comes in Revelation, salvation is not an achievement of man but it is a gift from God in His Son Jesus. From the very beginning salvation has been by God’s grace.
The Lamb (Jesus Christ) was indeed worthy and in fact has made the atonement. In this world of sorrow relief is granted in the Gospel. Many today put great emphasis on “good self-esteem” but what do we do with the negative message from that voice in our head? It is silenced in the glory of the Lamb.

Comfort From Revelation

Sunday April 28th Revelation 1:4-18. The first and the Last. Comfort comes in the form of a verbal description of a visual event, visions rendered in words. The proclamation of the One who comes in all His Glory and might, the Risen and Glorified Jesus Christ bring comfort in a messy and painfilled world. The early Christian church faced great persecution on all sides. The Jews saw Christians as threatening all they had build and as a dangerous sect the espoused ridiculous teaching like the resurrection of Jesus. The intellectuals of the day, saw Christians as stupid and a religion for the poor and ignorant. The Romans saw them as trouble makers. Not much has changed since the time of John’s Revelation. The names have changed but the issues, persecutions and misunderstanding of the Christian faith goes on. Join us at St. John’s Lutheran Church this Sunday at 9am for a message of comfort to persecuted and beleaguered church.
