Chapter 17

Apocalypse Now!

Sermon on Apr 22, 2001

Revelation 17:1-18

One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries."

Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit...

Chapter 18

Apocalypse Now!

Sermon on Apr 29, 2001

Revelation 18:1-24

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted:

"Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all...

Scandalous Grace: Jesus' Meals with Sinners

Sermon on Apr 2, 2014

Revelation 19:1-10

I’m going to preach from one of the Bible’s most controversial books.  Thank you, Reverend Strain!  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Lots of phone calls coming tomorrow, Ralph, just to tell you.  Stay by that phone tomorrow!  Let’s go to the Lord in prayer.

Father, open our hearts; open our minds.  Help us think Your thoughts after You as we look at Your...

Revelation 19:1-9

“Revelry in Eternity”

The Reverend Mr. Les Newsom

My parents have a cartoon sitting on their refrigerator that's from the old Far Side series. Whatever happened to the Far Side and Gary Larson? It's one of my favorite comics because it pictures a little man sitting on a cloud. A brand new resident of heaven, complete, having received his...

Behold, A Throne

Sermon on Nov 6, 2016

Revelation 19:11-20:15

If you would please take a copy of the holy Scriptures in your hands and turn with me to the last book of the Bible, to the prophecy of John, the book of Revelation. We’re going to read from verse 11 of chapter 19 through the end of chapter 20. Lots of somewhat intricate and important material here. A famous passage in the book of Revelation...

Chapter 20

Apocalypse Now!

Sermon on May 6, 2001

Revelation 20:1-15

And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore...

Pilgrim's Progress

Sermon on Jul 24, 2005

Revelation 20:1-6

Now turn with me in the Scriptures first of all to the Book of Revelation, and to chapter twenty. The reason why we are reading this particular passage of Scripture this evening will become clear as we delve once again into the narrative of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress.

If I can just tempt you along just a little bit, you will remember, those of you who...

Last Things

Starting last week we began a short series of sermons called “Last Things” looking at the themes of death, judgment, heaven, and hell. We don’t like to think about those sorts of things too terribly often, but your convictions about those issues have a profound influence on the way that we think about life here and now, about what really matters, about why you do what you do...

Chapter 21

Behold, A Throne

That was, of course, Macbeth’s despairing soliloquy, his famous commentary, on what he believed was life’s pointlessness. Tomorrow and yesterday, he says, are empty things. Life is a “tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” Meaning and purpose are an illusion. For Shakespeare, Macbeth is a tragic figure, so fascinating precisely because in his context Macbeth was so extreme. His speech is as...

Apocalypse Now!

Sermon on May 13, 2001

Revelation 21:1-22:5

As we have seen, the Book of Revelation is been about the triumph of God over the forces of evil. Every foe has been vanquished. Every opposition to the purposes of God has been rendered obsolete. Jesus is Lord!

This chapter continues that theme with a vision of the New Jerusalem given by "he who was seated on the throne" (21:5). The one who speaks identifies...

Last Things

Over the last few weeks we’ve been looking at a series we’ve called The Last Things, considering four themes - death, judgment, heaven, and hell. We’ve looked at death and judgment; tonight, this morning rather, we’re thinking about heaven. And then in two weeks time, next Sunday being Stewardship Sunday, two weeks time we’ll think about the last part of the series. We’ll think about hell. So...

Chapter 22

Advent 2019

Sermon on Dec 22, 2019

Revelation 22:1-5

So we are in a little series on Christmas in the mind-bending book of Revelation. This is the vision of the apostle John at the end of his life on the Isle of Patmos in the 90s, the last decade of the first century. We’re in Revelation 21 tonight, the first six verses. And that chapter addresses one of the age old questions of Christmas; a very old...

Pilgrim's Progress - Christiana's Story

Sermon on Dec 5, 2007

Revelation 22:1-5

Now if you have your Bibles with you, turn with me to the final chapter of the book of Revelation, Revelation 22; and in a moment or two we're going to read the opening verses.

We come tonight to what is the final session in our study of Part II of Pilgrim's Progress, the story of Christiana (the wife of Christian), and the four sons...

Behold, A Throne

They are the kind of questions children like to ask from the back seat on long journeys, aren’t they? “Where are we going? When will we get there? Who’s going to be there?” Actually, they’re enormously important questions to get answers to, especially when it comes to matters of eternity. As I said a moment ago, the final chapter of the book of Revelation answers those three questions...

Pilgrim's Progress

Sermon on Sep 25, 2005

Revelation 22

Now turn with me, if you would, to Revelation, chapter 22. We come this evening to the end of our summer journey that has taken us through the first part of Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress — probably the only part of Pilgrim's Progress most of us have read.

We began when we encountered Christian in his home village, bowed down beneath an enormous burden that he was...

Apocalypse Now!

Sermon on May 20, 2001

Revelation 22:6-21

The angel said to me, "These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent His angel to show His servants the things that must soon take place."

"Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book."

I, John, am the one who heard and...

Apostles' Creed

Sermon on Apr 6, 2003

Revelation 22:12

The Apostles' Creed From Thence He Shall Come to Judge the Quick and the Dead Revelation 22:12

As we continue to work through the Apostles’ Creed, we come to that statement that “From thence He, the Lord Jesus Christ, shall come to judge the quick and the dead.” This section in the Creed about the Lord Jesus Christ is the longest portion, so the core of the Creed...

Apocalypse Now!

Sermon on Apr 8, 2001

Revelation 14:1-15:4

Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new...
