Slain for the Word of God
Passage: Revelation 6:1–11
The Lamb begins to open the sealed scroll, and we see plagues and hardships befall the earth. These are not merely depictions of future disasters, but snapshots of the woes and troubles of life in a fallen world in the age between Christ's first and second comings. This message considers the first five seals, which highlight the triumph of Christ's gospel and the suffering of Christ's people on earth.
