Back To the Future

Last Thursday I went "Back To the Future." That is, back to studying and teaching Precept's Parts 3 & 4 of the book of Revelation. For me it is the single most fascinating book in the Bible. It lets us look into the future and get a glimpse of God's incredibly detailed plan for His creation. We see a God that is in absolute control. Not one thing happens unless it is ordained by His hand. We see unprecedented judgment in cataclysmic events never before seen nor that will ever be seen again. But we also see a holy God who in the midst of that judgment, still loves, still woos, still seeks, still desires that His creation acknowledges Him as their Lord and Savior.

He is not our Santa Claus in the sky who is merely there to cater to our whims. He is not an old, crickety Father Time figure that is too tired to listen. He is the Creator of this universe! With His breath He creates life. With His words He speaks things into existence. He is the only One who is worthy of all our praise! How do you see Him? Who do you say that He is?

Read Joel Rosenberg's message from September 11, 2011 if you have a chance.
