In honor of “The Sweetest Comeback in the History of Ever,” our Sunday morning study through the book of Revelation, here is this week’s end-times prophecy:
In the last days, the Bible says there will be great earthquakes in diverse places (Luke 21: 11; Isaiah 24: 19-20; Revelation 6: 12-14; Revelation 16: 18-20). We are reminded of this prophecy every time the ground begins to move. And for those of us who live in Southern California, the earth seems to move all the time.
Earthquakes are just a part of life here, like the beach, the mountains, freeways and In-N-Out burger. But these earthquakes that we experience now are just reminders of the promises in the Bible that Jesus is coming back, and right before He comes, there are going to be earthquakes all over the globe. So every earthquake we experience means that we are that much closer to the day when Jesus comes back. Not a sermon, just a thought.
We are in the middle of our membership reaffirmation process. This is a part of our new by-laws. The purpose of this is to make sure we’re all on the same page and pulling the same direction. Thanks to all of you who filled out the card and turned it in. We appreciate your faithfulness to the Lord and to His church. If you haven’t filled out a card yet, that’s okay. You will be getting a call from one of the elders, so that we can get to know you and make sure we’re all on the same page. By the way, thanks to all of you who aren’t yet members at Lakeside, for filling out a card indicating your interest in membership. We will be contacting you very soon too.
Easter is Nearly Here
Easter is just two weeks away, and we want you to make plans to celebrate Easter with family and friends here at Lakeside Church. Easter is on April 20th this year, and it will be our first anniversary as Lakeside. What ever you do, don’t miss that.
Right after Easter, we will be kicking off our care groups ministry at Lakeside. We will give you the information on that this Sunday. And, of course, this Sunday we continue in our study of the book of Revelation. We’ll be talking about the beginning of the end from Revelation 15.
I’ll see you Sunday, here at Lakeside Church.
