This book is different in the sense it goes through each chapter in Revelation starting from chapter one of Revelation to Chapter 22 and the second difference is it has Gentiles and Jews here during the great Tribulation according to Scripture. Below is a preview of the book The apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5: 8 (KJV): "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” This passage explains that when we are absent from the body, in case of death we are then taken to the presence of the Lord and, according to the book of Luke, angels will carry us to the presence of the Lord. Luke 16:22 (KJV): “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died and was buried.” We see the angels carrying Lazarus into the bosom of Abraham who was in Paradise, and we know that when Jesus died he took Paradise to heaven. Luke 23: 42-43 (KJV): “And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou come into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise. Then how do the dead in Christ rise first if they are already in the presence of the Lord? The rapture is the reunion of the spirit with our bodies, but many people’s body who already died are in graves here on earth. So, in the rapture, those who are still alive will see dead bodies raising from the grave. 1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17 “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” When Jesus will come, those who are already dead will enter into new bodies after the Holy Spirit raises them up.” 1 Corinthians 15: 52 (KJV): “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” This scenario will appear like the modern version of a TV show "The zombie apocalypse," but it will convert to Christ many unbelievers as they will witness something supernatural. Revelation 11:11 “And after three days and a half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.” The Holy Spirit will raise the bodies from the grave as He did in Romans 8:11 (KJV): “But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” So fear will fall on anyone seeing the dead bodies raising from the graves joining with the spirits who descended from Jesus as He returns, but those frighten people will give glory to God and become saved. Revelation 11:13 (KJV): “And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted and gave glory to the God of heaven.” The frighten ones will reign in the thousand-year reign. Zechariah 14:2-4 and Revelation 16:14-16 is the battle of Armageddon and after the battle. Zechariah 14:16 (KJV): “And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.” We know that eventually not all of them will stay true to the Lord and will follow Satan, as we show scriptures in our book of the events. Those who will turn their back on God will be tormented with Satan in the Lake of Fire with the rest of the dead. The description of the end time scenario of our book is different from the traditional movies and popular interpretations of the rapture. Commonly, movies that took inspiration from popular doctrines portrayed the rapture by omitting the divine sequence of the prophecy - when scriptures are overlooked - and display a scenario of missing people all of sudden, leaving desolate images after that. So, let the Word of God speaks as it proceeded out of His mouth and as He revealed it to us in a divine and perfect order. Comparing scriptures with scriptures, as taught in 1 Corinthians 2:13, we can be assured that it is God's spirit guiding us in the interpretation of the prophecy to stay firm within the Word that God provided for us.

Ash Wednesday Services | Church of the Incarnation

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Our foreheads are marked with ashes to humble our hearts and remind us that life passes away on Earth. Ashes are a symbol of penance, and they help us develop a spirit of humility and sacrifice. We think you will benefit from this solemn time of reflection as we prepare our hearts to remember Christ’s death and celebrate the resurrection at Easter. Join at the Main Campus for services at 7 am, 12 noon, and 6 pm and North Campus at 6 pm.

Two Signs… and then a Third | Sermons | Church of the Incarnation

What do we do with those weird apocalyptic, end of the world monologues from Jesus? It makes us feel uncomfortable and weird. But how did Jesus’ disciples feel when they first heard it? Our Gospel passage today is about two signs of the end times. But for once in their lives, the disciples don’t feel awkward. Rather, they respond with a quiet confidence and assurance. How come? And what can we learn from them? [Fr. John Sundara, Sunday, February 16]

Hail, Gladdening Light | Sermons | Church of the Incarnation

Candlemas, which comes 40 days after Christmas, happens on a Sunday once every so often. It celebrates what Luke’s Gospel describes, when the 40-day old baby Jesus is presented in the Temple by his parents, and the elderly Simeon and Anna burst into song at seeing the Light of God enter the Temple. And that’s what we need to remember. That God is Light, and in his light enlightens all our darkness. But why a 40-day old baby? [Fr. John Sundara, Traditional Service on February 2]

Christ In You | Sermons | Church of the Incarnation

Ever wonder if your work is having impact? This story should be an inspiration.

The Church of the Incarnation's has been going to Honduras for 19 years. On their recent trip to Copán Ruinas, they were unable to run their usual VBS, even though it had become a tradition over the years.

Lynn, one of the mission volunteers, tells the story:

"After years of doing this, I had begun to wonder if we were still having an impact on the community's spiritual life, especially for the children."

"The second day our clinics were open, a little girl stopped by the pharmacy....

"'Where are the games?' she asked.

"I realized she was looking for our usual VBS. I apologized and told her we didn't have that this year. And then I remembered that I had some stickers. I motioned for her to come into our waiting area, and I gave her some stickers, some scrap paper, and a couple of Sharpie markers. We set up a small table where she could draw. And did she draw!

"Soon we had other children asking to draw. Gloria, who is always with our Honduran transportation team, went out to buy a ream of paper and some crayons. Another team member had some educational materials on health and hygiene with him, and we had photocopies made for the children to color. Our little 'pop-up' coloring activity was soon in full swing.

"So many children came that we had to move them out of the pharmacy waiting area and upstairs into the church proper!"

The improvised VBS was a success for rest of the week! And we know the kids are already looking forward to the next clinic and VBS.

Thank you for your faithful dedication, Church of the Incarnation !

All Dogs Go to Heaven - Traditional | Sermons | Church of the Incarnation

All Dogs Go to Heaven - Uptown Contemporary | Sermons | Church of the Incarnation

Animals and our pets, dogs included, are wonderful revelations of God’s character to us (Rom 1:20). And Jesus also says that animals show us how to follow God (Mt 6:26). Now, this does not answer the question “do all dogs go to heaven?” and smart theologians have disagreed amongst themselves. Obviously God loves all that he has created. But it also raises a bigger one. How much do we believe God loves us? [Fr. John Sundara, #blessed sermon series]

Feasting, Eating and Drinking

In Genesis, there’s the famous story of Abraham bargaining God down from judging Sodom and Gomorrah. And his questions to God—“wilt thou judge the righteous with the wicked? Wilt thou not spare the wicked for the sake of the righteous?”—echoes throughout the pages of Scripture and even into our hearts. Yet, God finally answers Abraham, but not in a way that we would imagine. And God’s answers has to do with the Cross of Christ. [Traditional Service, “Feasting, Eating and Drinking” by Fr. John Sundara on Sunday, July 28]
