Faith doesn’t just sit around. It doesn’t just carry God around in its head with it. Faith is active.
Christians sometimes forget God has promised us a wonderful new heaven and a new earth. But God hasn’t forgotten and His promises are as sure as yesterday’s sunrise.This is the third sermon in the series “Messages of Hope from the Revelation to St. John.”
In Revelation, John writes about a celebration that dwarfs our nation’s greatest—an immense crowd shouting with joy over the saving work of God. Who are these people? Where did they come from?

I’ll answer these questions and more in the second of three “Messages of Hope from the Revelation to St. John.”
This sermon is the first of three “Messages of Hope from the Book of Revelation.” This is a message of hope for those who fear dangerous and chaotic times.
