The Clash of Kingdoms

currentSeries

The Book of Revelation is not about what you think it's about.

Most modern American Christians think the book portrays a bloody future war in which Jesus will kill the enemies of Christians and Israel after rapturing Christians away from the world that he will destroy.

However, those ideas are not the ideas held by the early church or by the author of the Book of Revelation.

So, what is this book about? The answer may surprise you. In fact, Revelation is meant to be surprising.

Revelation is the most complicated book in the entire Bible, and as such, it is a beautiful, provocative literary work that captures a vision of what life would look like if the Lord's Prayer was answered.

If the Kingdom of God really came, what would it mean for the power structures of the world? And, how are Christians supposed to engage things like politics, economics, military power, and culture if we belong to a different kind of kingdom with a very different kind of king?

The radical message of the book of Revelation is one of conquering these worldly power structures. But this conquering comes through seemingly absurd means: by laying down your life.

Join us this September-December as we discover what it means to be the people of Jesus, the conquering Lamb who was slain.
