Week 5 of a six-week series called The End of All Things. We explore Revelation 13. The beasts and the dragon. And the mark of the beast. They are disturbing images, ones that get twisted around to scare and frighten us. But we have to remember that the Book of Revelation is about cycles of warnings and promises and suffering and hope. And chapter 13 is no different. This chapter is meant to move the people of God out of complacency to a place of renewed faithfulness. It is to remind us of who we are and who we belong to. And it reminds us of who we are to worship and serve.
