Or if you're not yet a Christian and don't normally go to church, you might find the whole idea of church to be something of a mystery. The Greek word for church…

18 Now it happened that as he was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” 19 And they answered, “John the Baptist. But others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen.” 20 Then he said to them, “But who do you say that…
The Mystery Revealed... What is a mystery? We actually use the word mystery in many different ways. Who loves a good mystery? I love mystery novels Mystery used in different ways: “a piece of fiction dealing usually with the solution of a mysterious crime” “something not understood or beyond understanding:…
When Christians think about the Great Commission they think about Matt 28:18-20. But there are actually five other passages where Jesus commissions us. When we examine each of these six passages we come away with a far more detailed and complete idea of our mission in this world. We find six very important ideas: Jesus is The Master Builder, Jesus is The Model, The Magnitude is significant, Jesus gives The Method, Jesus gives The Message, and the Holy Spirit provides The Means.

This seems to be the main point of this section we will look at today. Many saw the miracles and signs (the Sadducees and Pharisees), but…

Glory is coming... in the meantime we pick up our cross.
This morning we return to our expository journey through the Book of Revelation, The Book of the Apocalypse.
