Revelation week 7
Revelation 11: 1-14 NKJV
Welcome to Nambucca Baptist Church for our worship service with Holy Communion this Sunday 1st August 2021. Today was a beautiful warm sunny day in Nambucca Heads and it really did feel like Spring was arriving early. We were a bit low on numbers today as a number of our members had very difficult weeks and were unable to attend. Please keep them in your prayers.
We continued with our sermon series on the book of Revelation. This week we are looking at Revelation 11, and attempting to answer the question of who are the two witnesses that feature in this passage. They play an important role in the purposes of God, during the great tribulation, and it is one of those end-times questions that has intrigued believers pretty much since the book was written. We have a look at the possibilities expressed in American end-times theology that has so captivated the contemporary church. Unfortunately, all of these theories, timelines, and charts mean very little in the great scheme of things. John wrote his letter to the seven churches in Asia to encourage them and to let them know that some very bad things were about to happen. It was pretty much a certainty that great persecution of the church was about to break out and that they needed to hold fast to their faith, even to death if necessary. Their reward was certain and wonderful.
You will need to listen to the sermon to see the conclusion we reached as to who the two witnesses are. Please take the opportunity to join us around the Lord’s table this morning as we celebrate the victory that Jesus won for us with his death and resurrection.
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.
