NO Sunday Evening Bible Study tonight

November 1, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Sunday Evening Bible Study: The Book of Revelation

When the Apostle John saw in a vision the Great Harlot, Babylon, his initial response was admiration and wonder; not what you’d expect from an apostle of Jesus Christ. Of course, the goal of a harlot is not to turn people off, but to attract them; and Babylon is “the Mother of Harlots.” In other words, she is good at appealing to various appetites, so we should be able to sympathize with John’s temptation. Thankfully there was an angel with John who recalled him to his senses, saying, “Why do you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman . . .” She won’t look so appealing to John once he sees her for what she truly is. The world-system has always tried to seduce the servants of God to give their allegiance to the world, the flesh, and the devil. Today, the world’s media is so pervasive that our minds are constantly being pressed into the mold of the world. We begin to think about ourselves, about others, about the world, and even about God in the categories and according to the definitions given to us by the world. We need to have our minds renewed (Romans 12:2). Just like John needed the angel to help him see through the deception of the harlot to the reality of her vile corruption, so we need help in seeing things rightly. That is the goal of the Book of Revelation, and that is the purpose for our study of this profound prophecy, to see things God’s way.
This study is not intended to interfere with existing Covenant Groups. It is an open study, so feel free to join and invite a friend. Our format for this study will be approximately one hour for study (30 minutes informal lecture; 30 minutes guided discussion); 30 minutes small group prayer; 30 minutes of fellowship with finger foods (provided by those who attend).
