Toppling Whores and Attaining Holiness
Series: Revelation
[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.

    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.

    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.

    Christmas is about God granting the gift of His presence through his Son. However, God has repeatedly been making His presence felt in closer and closer ways since His presence was lost in the garden.
     
    Each manifestation of His presence brings a different manifestation of His glorious presence to mankind.

    Experiences
    We each have a collection of experiences that have helped to shape who we are. These same experiences can be plugged into discovering our place for ministry. Our assortment of experiences can be spiritual, education, ministerial, or painful.
     
    Of particular ministry effectiveness may be our painful experiences. God never wastes a hurt, failure or disappointment, but turns them into avenues to build our trust in Him, so that we can share the experience with others.

    Personality
    When the Bible talks about our soul, it is pointing to that unique part of us that makes us our personality. Our personality is an important contributor to who we are, and how we best function in ministry.
     
    As we come to understand the natural bent of our personality it will help us to sort through ministry options in order to cross some off the list and invite us to try some other options on.
     
    Are you a beaver, lion, otter, or golden retriever? The one to which you are naturally inclined will greatly determine how you function in ministry.
