Facing The Monsters

Sixteenth in the series “Your Part In The Big Story”

Revelation 13:1-18

Main Point:  Jesus followers must be intentional in how we retort the political and ideological schemes of the enemy.

  • Politics that unjustly mechanizes power is dangerous[1-10a]
    • Daniel 7:24-25
    • 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
  • Ideology that uncritically supports power is treacherous[11-18]
    • Matthew 7:15-16
    • Deuteronomy 13:1-3
  • Disciples who patiently trust God are victorious[10b]
  • Applications and Next Steps:
    • How frightened are you of the world’s power machine?
    • How much do your values align with the political powers?
    • Which worldly ideology is most attractive to you?
    • How do we build perseverance into our lives?
