Current church models, leadership books, and yesterday's sermons will not prepare and equip the Church for the greatest hour of pressure in world history. Those who don’t understand the biblical narrative or storyline of unfolding events will be much more vulnerable to being overcome with fear and even to being offended at God. As pressures increase, many will be greatly perplexed about where things are going if they are unaware of the biblical narrative of the end times. To them it will seem like the train of history is veering off the tracks, and it will feel as though no one really knows where things are going or why.
However, there are over 150 chapters in the Bible where the Lord lays out the details of His end-time plan. We know that He has power over the events of the end times and is able to use them redemptively for the good of His people (Romans 8:28). Since Jesus has total control and deeply loves His people, we are in His good hands. We can stand in faith, filled with peace and thriving in love. Only those who interpret what is happening from God’s point of view will be equipped to respond with such faith and confidence.
RETURN is a unique conference including interactive online content designed to bring you into the conversation before joining us in September for the live three-day event.
