Got Questions about the End Times?
BRB: Tough Questions about the Second Coming of Christ
Welcome to the landing page for my sermon & blog series: “Be Right Back: Tough Questions about the Second Coming of Christ.” Everyone has questions about the end of the world. And so, the goal here is to give you additional resources to help you navigate this exciting topic!
In the first section, you’ll see our sermon series video links (with summaries). Below that, I have multiple blogs designed to make this topic easier for you. So, throughout this sermon series, be sure to check back as I will be adding new blogs each week.
But remember, the key idea isn’t to create a road-map for the End Times. Rather, it’s to grow closer to Jesus and his Word.
