It was an unusual Easter Church Service. The service was certainly focused on Christ, however, Revelation was used as the main text in order to focus our minds on the Glory of the Risen One.
Revelation is a book of prophecy, however what is more important than knowing what will happen in the end, is our response to that knowledge. The intention of making the future known is not only so we know what will happen, but also, and most importantly, the intention is that we respond by shaping our lives appropriately, so that we are prepared for the coming events.
The appropriate response to the prophecy contained in Revelation, is one of worship and adoration of the Risen One. We ought not worry about the devastation that will come in the final days, rather, be joyful in the victory that has already been achieved by Jesus’ defeat over death.
