There are things in our lives that just happen, and then there are acts of God. Those are the things that confront us with the deep existential questions and keep us up at night. Does God exist? What kind of God is he? What does he demand or expect of me? Is he pleased or displeased with me? Can I know the answers to any of these questions? If so, how?
In Revelation 8, Jesus opens the final seal and reveals the contents of the scroll. The judgements found there move from common experiences of men to remarkable acts of God. They provoke deeper questions than, “how do I survive.” Yet even in the dramatic judgements of Revelation 8, we see the grace of God shining through the terror of the first four trumpets. Join us this week as we examine Revelation 8 and consider God’s gracious warning to us through his undeniable acts of judgement.
