History - A Cosmic Struggle
The New Testament sees history as moving towards a climax. The ultimate struggle is between good and evil - ending with the triumph of good over evil, God over Satan.
Jesus is the Centrepiece
- History is his story
- Jesus came to establish the reign of God upon the earth
A Great and wonderful sign apeared in heaven (Revelation 12:1)
- A woman
- A dragon
- A child
- Remember Jesus died to free us from our sins
- Remember God's past acts of intervention
- Remember loyalty to Christ is our first priority
It is important that we are mentally prepared to face the challenges associated with living for Jesus in a hostile enviornment.
