Week 6 – Comfort of Revelation

“I am coming soon.” When is “soon” and what are we to do until then? As this book of comfort draws to an end we are not given an unanswerable question to answer. It is one of the sneakiest tricks of Satan to have the Christian church trying to figure out when Christ is going to return. Jesus himself told us no one will know. Rather than an endless maze, we are given words of comfort. The river of living water flows from the throne of God through the means of His Grace, (The Gospel, Baptism and The Lord’s Supper). On the banks of this river the Christians’ roots continually draw strength and life from the source of Life, Jesus Christ.

Week 5 – Comfort of Revelation

Wait a Minute! There is no need for the sun and moon? Can you imagine our terror if the sun went out? Without the sun there would be no life, we would all die a cold and dark death. But is the physical sun the real source of life? In our modern times science has concluded that without the sun human life could not exist. But does an existence based on science alone bring comfort? Does it give all the answers? It can’ t because it’s limited to that which can be observed, measured, and reproduced.

Revelation gives great comfort by reveling and existence without the sun and moon because there is a greater source of life.

Join us at St. John’s Lutheran Church this Sunday at 9am for an enduring message of comfort.

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.
