"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Revelation 18:20-19:4
And they threw dust on their heads as they wept and mourned, crying out,

“Alas, alas, for the great city
    where all who had ships at sea
    grew rich by her wealth!
For in a single hour she has been laid waste.
20 Rejoice over her, O heaven,
    and you saints and apostles and prophets,
for God has given judgment for you against her!”

How does it all end? Do God's people cry out forever? Is there a hell? Is there a heaven? What does the apocalyptic language of Revelation have to do with what is actually going to happen when Christ returns? Is God just, if evil is not done away with? How does God defeat evil? How will God judge the church? How will God judge the corruption of empires, the violence of empires, the greed of empires, the seductions of empires? What does the "Fall of Babylon" entail and why does all of heaven rejoice at the fall of the "unholy trinity" as we see it in Revelation 18 and 19? We have to understand this in someways is like Easter and Good Friday. There is no resurrection without death and there is no wedding supper of the lamb if there is still evil present. Join us as we look at The Day of the Lord and continue to worship the lamb who is worthy of all our praise!
