For Ministry Resources Youth Series : Revelation: End of the World
This free 3-part sermon series on Revelation helps your students study end times while learning that Jesus ensures victory in the end.
End of the World 01/03: The Lamb of God
Jesus is called "lamb" 28 times in the book of Revelation. Why is John so obsessed with seeing Jesus as a lamb? It's simple. Lambs were central to the ancient faith. It's specifically evident during an event called Passover. In the same way, that judgment passed over the houses in Egypt, death will pass over anyone who is covered by the blood of Jesus. That's why it's important that we start here. Revelation foretells death and sorrow on a massive scale, but we don't have to worry about it. Why? Because we are protected by the blood of the perfect Lamb.
End of the World 02/03: The Warrior King
Jesus is the most multidimensional figure to ever live. Throughout the gospels, we get beautiful snapshots of Jesus bringing hope to a hurting world. In Revelation, we experience another dimension of Christ. We get to see Jesus as a vigilant warrior who rises up to destroy Satan, seal up hell, and obliterate evil The Book of Revelation assures our victory. We get to take a look at the final battlefield and know that our leader comes out on top. The darkness may fight dirty and look scary, but we will win in the end. After the battle settles and the smoke lifts, we will see the Warrior King Jesus standing over the rubble — triumphant.
End of the World 03/03: The Restorer
Revelation 21:5 is one of the most hope-filled verses in the entire Bible. It's hard to watch things grow old, see lives shattered due to disease, and say goodbye to loved ones. We can't change this reality, but God will. God doesn't just reform situations. He restores situations. Jesus, at the right time, will make everything new. You will be able to share a meal with all your loved ones. There will be no sickness, death, evil, or suffering. Everything is going to be made new. While many people perceive the message of Revelation as horrible, it's actually very hopeful.
