A Confident Peace shows the book of Revelation as more than prophetic timelines or tales with apocalyptic images. It inspires full surrender to Christ and living with confident peace even when life falls apart. When hurt by the sins of others, when persecuted by ungodly governments, when impacted by the death and disease of a fallen world, when frustrated by friends and family who repeatedly turn from God instead of to Him, Revelation helps us walk these unwanted roads with confident peace.
A Confident Peace also reminds us the more things change the more they stay the same. God’s holiness, Satan’s deception, and humanity’s sinfulness are constants from age to age. Looking into the future, Revelation gives us a confident peace to recognize Satan’s deceptions, overcome our sinful inclinations and honor God with our lives today.
Furthermore, A Confident Peace gives us God’s big picture. It reminds us the One who started it all wins it all. With over 550 Old Testament references, the book of Revelation ties together God’s activity throughout scripture. Seeing the thread of God’s hand tightly woven in our past and future gives us confident peace, especially when it feels life is unraveling all around us.
