The Beginning of the End



The Beginning of the End





Revelation 6:1-8, Pastor Howard Harden

Message delivered March 9th, 2014 during the morning services.



Revelation 6 describes the beginning of tribulation unlike anything the world has ever known.  In today's Scripture, we see how these events, will start to unfold.  We will also discover how we should and should not respond to this knowledge.

  1. A DANGEROUS DECEPTION. (vs. 1-2)
  2. WIDE-RANGING WARFARE. (vs. 3-4)
  3. FAR-REACHING DEVASTATION. (vs. 5-6)
  4. The RESULTING DEATH. (vs. 7-8)

How are we to respond?  We should NOT respond with...

  • GLOOMY PASSIVITY
  • INTELLECTUAL CURIOUSITY
  • MORBID FEAR

We SHOULD respond with...

  • A HOLY DETACHMENT
  • EVANGELISTIC PASSION
  • A TRUSTING CONFIDENCE

* In Matthew 24, Mark 13 and Luke 21, the disciples asked Jesus for the sign of the "end of the age."  Revelation 6 follows what appears to be the same outline.
