Homesick For A Place We’ve Never Been
Series: Revelation
When we remove the myths of harps, halos and floating on clouds, the message of Heaven is that we have a place to look forward to which will be best described as God's presence, a place of beauty, holiness, security, and renewal. Heaven is described in Revelation 21 and 22 with three metaphors: a city, a temple, and a garden. Each communicates something of the essence of that eternal place.

    [caption id="attachment_7768" align="alignleft" width="300"]Revelation Revelation[/caption] Babylon is a looker, a luxurious harlot, a materialistic magnet. While the Babylon of Revelation 17 and 18 is Rome, she still walks the streets today, offering the gratification of all that she can supply from her promise of wealth and prosperity. 
     
    Yet, believers are called out of the materialistic pursuits of Babylon. We are called to accept enough so that we do not enter into her sins, and be subject to her destiny.

    [caption id="attachment_7768" align="alignleft" width="300"]Revelation Revelation[/caption] As Christians, we can stand the storms of chaos and of God's judgment of an evil and corrupt world. But what does standing look like? It looks a lot like living in holiness.

    Revelation 12, 13, and 14 introduce us to an "unholy trinity" along with their advocate Babylon. Each represents a way that Satan attempts to either seduce or oppress God's people. In contrast, the Lamb stands with his people. Both groups sport figurative markings which define which team with which they associate.
     
    We waste our time when we attempt to figure out the "who" and "how" of 666. It is a symbolic figure which speaks of ownership and association, and is contrasted with the sealing of followers of the Lamb.

    Authority-Honoring Worship
    Series: Revelation
    [caption id="attachment_7768" align="alignleft" width="300"]Revelation Revelation[/caption]
    Authentic worship is a response to the revelation of God and His Christ. Worship that begins with its attention elsewhere is selling worship short.
     
    Worship that acknowledges that God is sovereign is able to face anything that confronts the worshiper.
