This Sunday, we will return to the book of Revelation. As we look at the ninth chapter, it is understandable why no one likes to talk about hell in biblical terms. Many churches like to redefine hell as a state of mind or an expression to describe a terrible situation, but the Bible presents hell as a literal place, designed to punish those who live in rebellion against God. Since it’s such a terrible place, people want to avoid it, even to erase it from their theology. Why should they run the risk of offending people when there are so many pleasant topics to discuss?
The reason we need to learn about hell is because it’s in the Bible, it’s a real place, and we’re obligated to preach God’s whole message. Simply denying something is true won’t change the fact of its reality. It’s far better for us to hear the warnings and be prepared to avoid it. This Sunday, I’ll be preaching about “When Hell Comes to Earth”. We’ll see a description of hell. Don’t miss the truth, even when it’s not pretty! I’m praying for you. Pray for me that God would give power to speak clearly about this important, but ugly truth from the Word of God. You don’t want to miss it!
For our Fellowship Meal, we’ll share a traditional Thanksgiving feast with turkey and dressing with cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole and green bean casserole. We askYOU to bring your favorite dish to share. Thank you for pitching in and helping with the set up of the tables and chairs, the serving of the food or the clean up. Many hands make light work!
See you Sunday!
Jesus is Awesome!
