Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
Call me foolish – but I’m launching the Orchard Fellowship by preaching on Revelation.
Last Sunday was Revelation 7:1-8:5 – a piece of exegetical cake.
After all, anyone can explain the identity of the 144,000 who are sealed in their foreheads, and the meaning of the “Great Tribulation,” right?
Seriously, I had three “take-aways” from the text:
People who can stand in the midst of all the craziness of this world – now and in the future – must know three things…
1. I belong to God and nothing can change that (I am sealed by Holy Spirit)
2. Heaven will heal every hurt (those in heaven tend to sing for joy)
3. My prayers matter (God uses prayer to bring in the future).
