Things Are Not Always As They Seem

Passage: Revelation 1:4-8

Speaker: Pastor Scott Stephan

Series: Spoiler Alert: God Wins

Category: Faith, Discipleship, Holy Spirit

Apocalypse = Unveiling (pulling back the curtain)
Right question: In light of Jesus return, how then should we live
  Things Are Not Always As They Seem
Vs. 4-8
What would be lost if we didn’t have the book of revelation?
  • Encouragement and strength to persevere
  • If our answer is, “Not Much,” what does that indicate?
The Father: who is, who was, and who is to come (Eternal)
The Spirit
The Son:   The Faithful Witness - Trustworthy
     Firstborn from the Dead - Exalted, power over death
     Ruler of the Kings of the earth - Truly
He Loves us - Present tense
He has freed us by his blood—atonement
Main Command - “Look!”
Alpha - Everything finds it’s origin in him
Omega - all of history is moving toward him
What’s your alpha point? What’s your omega point?
