Do you tend to avoid studying books of the Bible like Revelation and Ezekiel? Does it feel like words such as rapture and apocalypse fly right over your head? It's common to dismiss these and other topics related to Bible prophecy as irrelevant and...well...too complicated. But God's Word says, "Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near" (Revelation 1:3). Join us as we hear from someone who knows how to “illustrate” the Word of God in an instructive and creative way so we can learn God’s plans for the future.
This hour we tackle the topic of “transhumanism” and why humans are exceptional in the design of creation. We then head to ‘tinsel town’ to learn how we can pray for those whom God has called into the world of entertainment. Get ready to be challenged!
