Reading the book of Revelation

0e2175119_blog-reading-the-book-of-revelation
Almost every Bible reading plan ends with Revelation, which makes sense chronologically. But, it always feels odd to read these apocalyptic prophecies during such a festive season. This paradox is a reminder that good and bad are always traveling together through our lifetime.
 
I personally believe that most “end time scholars” have made a complete mess of interpreting Revelation. (I have some sermons and teachings on this subject from years past that I pray get lost into eternity. :-))
 
So, when I receive the blessing this divine writing promises (Rev. 1:3), I focus on the characteristics revealed about our great God. When the self-proclaimed experts on Revelation fade away, our incomparable God is the stable force of judgnment and love we continue to follow.
 
Maranatha!

Sunday is going to be great at CIL!

My good friend Randy Carter will return to preach on December 30th. Randy is smart, seasoned, and humorous. Everyone loved it when he was with us a couple of years ago, so you will not want to miss Sunday’s service.

Randy is the senior pastor of Northside Assembly of God in Jackson, TN. He is going to bring CIL an encouraging message in anticipation of 2019, so come expecting great things from God!
