Sermons on Second Coming
Mike concludes our systematic look through the book of Revelation with the end of the Biblical Story and how this informs the way we live our daily lives. Join us this Sunday at 10am as Mike gives us the picture John sees in “Heaven is a Place on Earth.”
Mike continues Revelation ttalking through Rev. 20 on the “1000 Year” Reign and the Lake of Fire.
Mike continues in the book of the Revelation talking through the great “Marriage Supper of the Lamb,” with insight on what the first listeners would have heard regarding Babylon, The Beast, and Jesus. Who is invited? How do we know? How do we celebrate?
Mike walks through Rev. 17-18 describing “Babylon the Great.” John walks through all the ways Empire asserts itself in our world and God’s judgment of it. Empire is much closer to our experience than we think.
Mike walks through the seven bowls of the wrath of God’s divine judgment, and why it’s necessary. It is a much different picture than what we think of as “wrath,” and to the first century listeners, a clear message on something we need to hear in our current situation.
Mike approaches the next interlude as John shows the pictures of the army of the Lamb singing a new song that is the song of Moses. Wait, that’s 2 songs becoming one song? Mike walks through why that’s significant and timely to today’s current situation.
Mike walks through what the first centuries listeners immediately thought about when they heard the “mark of the beast.” It was an extremely clear image of their current experience. Mike connects that to what that might look like now, how it doesn’t look like all the doomsday prophecies, but begs a more important and basic question.
Guest Emmett Brown is back as he walks through Revelation 12 addressing the continual war for our souls. Will we live in a posture of fear or hope?
Mike walks through the 2nd Interlude of Revelation between the 6th and 7th trumpets where he addresses what “witnessing” looks like then, and now.
Mike walks through John’s eating of the scroll in Rev. 10, as we consider how God’s Words shape us. Are they like honey or bad hot sauce?
Mike walks through the seventh seal and most of the seven trumpets, talking about how silence acts a mirror to the deepest parts of who we are, revealing both ugly and good things.
Mike walks through the pause before the 7th seal is opened, describing the 144,000 and the Great Tribulation, asking if we live our lives in such a way today that is compelling enough to be persecuted by Empire.
Mike walks through the first 6 seals of Revelation, why divine judgment is something all of us actually want to happen, and how Jesus redefines what conquering looks like.
We are back to the book of Revelation where we left off last summer as we talk about the great Throne Room scene in chapters 4-5. Mike Lamson walks through how familiar the first listeners were to this imagery, but not in the way the apostle John explains it. How does this identity John describes…
Pastor Mike is back and walks through the final of 7 letters to the churches of Revelation. Mike walks through Jesus’ strongest rebuke toward a church and that it might be more applicable to us today than we want to think.
Pastor Mike walks through the letter to Philadelphia, where he addresses two different responses when fires come in our lives.
Pastor Mike is back as he continues walking through the letters to the churches in Revelation. This week we talk through Thyatira and what the phrase “hold fast” means to them and how true it is still for us, especially during this season.
Emmett Michael Brown walks through how the ancient message to the church of Sardis is a message still prevalent right now.
Pastor Mike walks through the situation in Pergamum, which has significant relevance on a Christ followers’ response to culture.
Mike continues our series through the book of Revelation talking about Jesus’ letter to Smyrna, who were faced with life or death decisions identifying as Jesus-followers. Mike walks through the context of this story, where Jesus issues a response from all people…allegiance.
