Great Sermon! Thanks for the message brother. I have been doing a study on the church in our adult SS class, and the way you handled the matter of the relationship between elders and members was very insightful. I am at the point in the study where this particular issue needs to be addressed. I want to be cautious in handlIng the issue (as I feel you were) in a way that speaks of the authority delegated to the office of elder by Christ, yet not appearing self serving or defensive. I appreciate the way you did this, and will definitely glean from your insights.
Great Sermon! Many expositors of Revelation concentrate on the interpretation of symbolism and relating the various visions to the history of the church or the world. But in this series Mark gets to the heart of the matter - the subject of the book, the Lord Jesus Christ.
I find this series a great help in my own understanding of Revelation.
Let's see... you can't put a puzzle together without a male and a female end. You can't run a vacuum without putting the male end into the female plug. Cows and all the other farm animals understand simple logic and can figure out what body parts are for. All other entry ways have entrance and exits... so what's all the confusion about??
