Read Revelation 12

GROUP

  1. What was your big “take-away” from this passage / message?

  2. For what purpose did God send the 3 angels (v6-11)? What does this tell you about God?

  3. Some people believe “you must keep the commandments” to be saved, while others believe that it is legalism to even encourage “obedience to the commandments”. The latter would say “faith in Jesus is all that matters”, not obedience to God and God’s Word.

    Read verse 12 carefully, considering the context.

    How does “keeping the commandments” and having “faith in Jesus” seem to coexist?

    How do you reconcile the two being side by side in this verse?

Pray for one another. Pray for the expansion at HBC - for God to provide the funds and the workers!
