Revelation as a Pastoral Response to Pandemic, Etc.

Instructor: E. Allen Sorum

Description:
The message of Revelation only grows more critical as citizens of this planet struggle under the burden of the various plagues prophesied in this letter. The message is clear. As the plagues grow in intensity as we get closer to the Last Day, the proclamation of the gospel must also grow in clarity. A study of Revelation is supremely encouraging to Christians who, without this letter’s encouragement, might begin to falter in their witness to this world. Here is a wonderful encouragement, namely, to fearlessly proclaim the gospel of him who prepares the universe to receive that proclamation. Our study of this message will equip us to encourage Christ’s witnesses entrusted to our care.

Participants in this course will:
1. Grow in faith in the Victorious Savior who has already defeated our every enemy and has called us to be his bold witnesses of his victory until his return;
2. Practice confidently the hermeneutical approach required by this letter;
3. Discern the implications of the structural organization that the author uses to present his message;
4. Dig deeply into the repeating but intensifying message of the judgments God sends from his throne upon this earth in order to understand how his Church is to work with God through these judgments to rescue sinners from hell, and;
5. Prepare and apply especially our Christian response to international events like a pandemic, the threat of extremist religious groups or a local natural disaster, etc.
