Horsemen Of The Apocalypse

Today’s Reading: Revelation 4:1-8:6 Good morning (and good afternoon to our friends on the other side of the world)! I trust you’re all trying to finish well in the readings. Revelation contains many hard passages that are hard to understand. Much of what it describes will take place after the

Messages To The Church

Today’s Reading: Revelation 1-3 Seven churches are addressed in Revelation 2-3. While it is good to interpret these letters literally (i.e. they were real letters to real churches addressing real issues), some see them as a preview of the history of the Church (For example, Philadelphia typifies the Church in
