Sermons on the Revelation:

Pentecost 2007

Back to sermons page


Warning: I had never preached through the Revelation before until Pentecost season in 2007. After over a decade of pastoring, I sensed God leading me to the last book in the Bible and the last book I ever wanted to touch. Nonetheless, when God calls, I must obey.

These sermons were delivered at New Hope Baptist Church in Romulus, Alabama during Pentecost 2007 and the First Sunday of Advent 2007. I've placed these sermons here for my non-resident members (or anyone else interested in some sermons). Unless otherwise noted, all scriptures are from the English Standard Version, copyright 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers. These sermons are not for profit; I'm not selling them, and you can't either. If they help you, please let me know. Feel free to share them if you think they're worth it. You should know that I rarely preach exactly from manuscript; things come to me as I go. (Most ministers will empathize.)

I tried to emphasize to my congregation that these are not your typical sermons on Revelation. I realize some of what you find here does not agree with the predominant views held by the Southern Baptist Convention on this book. You'll probably disagree with me at times; that's fine with me. If you can prove me wrong, please email me with Scriptural and historical facts.

One last caveat. I passionately believe that God speaks to His people here and now through Scripture. Revelation is not a crystal ball; it is a book of Scripture with exhortations, warnings, and celebrations that apply to our current lives. In this light, you'll find that each sermon contains applications to the lives we live today and every day.

May God use this book to speak to you as He continues to use it to speak to me.
