Sermon Notes

The Rapture fact or fiction? The Rapture of the Church is one of the most debated parts of Bible Prophecy! However there are a few things we know, the Christian’s appointment is to be caught up with Christ. The appointment of the world is for “The Day of the Lord” and judgment. The Church is not on Earth during the Tribulation Period, but in Heaven thus the rapture happens before the Tribulation; the Second Coming is at the end of the Tribulation.


In Revelation, the word Babylon is a point of reference for evil. The traits of Babylon can be seen in a lifestyle of pride, sensuality and idolatry.

Anything that takes the place of God. Religion is man’s attempt to reach God; Christianity is God’s attempt to reach man. Babylon was the beginning of humanism. Babylon looks good on the outside, but is dead on the inside.

Sin cannot win and faith cannot fail. Put your hope in God.

  • We celebrate because the power of God has finally vanquished evil.
  • We rejoice because the Lord is reigning.
  • We celebrate because the Marriage Supper of the Lamb has come.
