This weekend many around the world are celebrating Easter and the empty tomb of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord He truly rose from the dead and has the keys of death and the grave (Revelation 1:18)!
Jesus spoke of a time when every tomb will be empty! “…the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.” John 5:28-29.
When Jesus comes again the second time He will empty all the tombs of the righteous (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:4-6). And then, a thousand years later, the rest of the dead, the wicked, will be called out of their tombs, but just for a little while (Revelation 20:3, 5, 7-15).
What will it be like when every tomb is empty, when everyone who has ever lived on Planet Earth is alive at the same time? To find out, join us this Sabbath at Richardson (9am & 11:30am) as we study Revelation 20-22 (and The Great Hope chapter 11). This is the final message in our series “The Great Hope.” Feel free to invite friends.
(On Sabbath, April 2, we will have Neighborhood Church in six locations, including our mother church. We will begin a three-month study of Health & Wellness.)
