The Seven Churches: An Introduction

Posted on: October 28, 2008

I want to start out this series with a pretty intense statement that hopefully will ring true with your heart by the end of the series: The letters to the seven churches are perhaps some of the most “forgotten” passages in the entire book of Revelation.

In a day when even unbelievers are becoming more and more interested in what the Bible has to say about the future, discussion between various camps in studying the book of Revelation always tends to revolve around passages like Revelation 20 (the 1000-year reign of Jesus), Revelation 4:1 (“come up here”), Revelation 6:1 (...

New series: The Seven Churches of Revelation

Posted on: October 19, 2008

For the past few weeks I've been studying Revelation 2-3 extensively, trying to wrap my head and my heart around each of the issues Jesus rebuked and affirmed in them and the promises to the overcomer given to each of the churches. In the past I have not spent much time in these chapters, but I've recently begun to see their importance and application towards us today. These two chapters are critical to understanding the rest of Revelation, and they're instrumental in motivating us to be an "overcomer".

John penned some hard-to-swallow yet encouraging messages that...


Righteousness Exalts a Nation

Posted on: October 12, 2008

Originally spoken to IHOP back in 2005, Art brings light to the only way that God will bring blessing to a nation in this present evil age - by the people turning in repentance and walking in righteousness. In light of the world's current financial crisis, Art speaks a timely message.
