But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Revelation 101 Featured

Written by
So often I hear that people are scared to, or worried about reading the Book of Revelation. It's this monolith at the end of the Bible that people stay away from because it's too hard, too mysterious, too difficult to understand. Yet the book itself says otherwise.
Believers cannot afford to ignore...
