In this chapter, Jesus Christ is presented as the supreme conqueror who triumphs over all evil. At the end of Revelation 12 (on the Dragon, Satan), and Revelation 13 (the AntiChrist & False Prophet), one may wonder if evil ultimately triumphs. But Revelation 14 provides the glorious answer that Jesus Christ will triumph in the end over all evil, over all His enemies!
In this chapter, the victory & supremacy of Jesus Christ is shown in three different scenes.

4. the COUNSEL of older women
This sermon pleads with older women (50s, 60s and up) to actively, intentionally and thoughtfully serve in the local church by speaking of & testifying of God's greatness especially to the younger women (more on that next week in vv.4-5).

This sermon uncovers 3 problem attitudes that pervaded the people of Judah -- and Isaiah exposes them. The problem attitudes that prevailed were.

Pastor Geoff deals with the common phrase used by many in our day that they are "Gay-Christians" -- often they say they are celibate and don't 'act out.' But what does the Bible say? How can we have clarity about this phrase that many identify themselves as, namely, as being a 'Gay-Christian"?
In this, Pastor Geoff provides 7 Reasons Why This Is Utterly Impossible. It's absolutely impossible to be a 'Gay-Christian'. Here's why...
It Blasphemes the Character of God.
It Contradicts the Clarity of Scripture.
It Ignores the Severity of Hell.
It Disregards the Glory of Regeneration
It Belittles the Power of Grace
It Shames the Name of Christ
It Destroys the Witness to the Lost
"The Utter Depravity of All Mankind--None Excluded!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 85:6 and shows a number of points concerning revival: God is the giver of revival, it always begins with His Church, it comes through much persistence in prayer, and it always results in God's glory.

Pastor Geoff continues the exposition through the Book of Psalms and heralds this glorious 'thanksgiving' psalm which calls all the people of God (in an antiphonal/responsive way): "Give thanks to the LORD for He is good!"

Listen to this psalm & let's all chant from the heart & without end: "For His lovingkindness is everlasting!"
