Revelation Week 9
Revelation 13: 1-18 nkjv
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our first lockdown service for 2021, and hopefully our last in lockdown. It was suggested to me that we just miss church this week, everyone would understand, there just wasn’t time to put a proper service together for our online congregation. My response to that was simple. This church will not bow down to anyone other than our Lord Jesus Christ, certainly not to anything like covid 19. As you can see we got the essential bits recorded in the church before the lockdown and here is our full service as you would have experienced it in church.
Today we are looking at Revelation 13 and two of the great villains of the book. The beast from the sea and the beast from the land also known at the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The chapter concludes with the chilling verses about the mark of the beast, but we have nothing to fear, we are already sealed with the Holy Spirit, our Father knows who his kids are. Amen.
Those two villains might win for a time but I’ve read the end of the story. When our Lord Jesus Christ returns on His white horse it will be game over for those evil dudes.
This is where we would normally take up a collection but as you can see we can’t pass an offering bag around online. We have, however, provided a secure online giving facility for you. You can either use the Tithe.ly app on your smartphone or just click on the green button on the screen. We have been blessed by the way so many of you have managed to continue to give in various ways so that we can continue with the work of the Lord here in our church and beyond our walls.
Our Bible reading this week is a video clip of Revelation 13: 1-18
These are the images that would have been displayed on the screen
The Lord Bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you
And give you peace
