Weekly teaching audio by Revolution Church is here to share the Gospel in word and deed to a world in need, for the glory of God and for the good of people.
Pastor Fabian Portunato is the lead pastor of Revolution Church in Miami.
This week, as we continue our study on heaven, we look into the last book of the bible for some insight on the topic at hand.
We hear the revelation of Jesus Christ to the apostle John and listen to the most conprehensive depiction of heaven we have to date.
To understand heaven in the gospel is to understand Jesus's righteousness and see our own immorality.
We are not looking for perfection in the church, for there are none that are. Jesus makes that perfectly clear in the letters to the Seven Churches of Asia.
That can be a hard slap to the face to those of us who think so highly of our own merits, for they mean nothing in comparison to His work.
We try our best to humble ourselves when it comes to thinking: "What is a good christian?"
Jesus is the only one who bares the marks of what it means to be good. Who are we to judge another for where we think the are, or aren't, in their faith?
the only perfection is the work on the cross and the one who was slain for our salvation, Jesus Christ!
We also see the people of God who were taken because of the word of God and the testimony they maintained in heaven and learn more of what we are to expect when amongst the presence of our God and alongside our family in Christ.
We give praise to our heavenly father, for we may be brothers from another mother, but we share a father in God Almighty!
Keep this verse in mind:
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
