From the seven seals to the seven trumpets, one thing seems clear. The disciples continue to have a mission on earth during tumultuous times. Join Dr. Cooper, Dr. Feiser, and Dr. Harris as they discuss the seals, the little scroll, and what John meant when he was told, “you must again must prophesy about many people and nations and languages and kings” (Rev 10:11).Continue reading Ep 85: The Two Witnesses
The body of Christ is a dynamic, chaordic network of those who are fully committed to His mission. Her engagement of culture is as diverse as the cultures themselves.
