SUFFERING

TRIBULATION
  1. The Church is Appointed to Tribulation – (The New Testament does not equate “tribulation” with “wrath.” Believers escape “wrath” but endure “tribulation”)
  2. The Church and the Tribulation – (In the book of Revelation, faithful saints experience “tribulation,” whereas, the unrepentant undergo “wrath”)
  3. Is the Church Absent in the Tribulation? – (The book of Revelation is a message and exhortation for, to, and about the Church, the people of God)
PERSECUTION
  1. A Christ-Like Response to Persecution – (Disciples must not respond to persecutors in-kind)
  2. Persecution, Suffering, and Discipleship – (To suffer for Jesus is the greatest honor before God for a Christian)
