How APOCALYPTIC HOPE conquers all of life’s catastrophes
What is “apocalyptic hope”? Hint: The word “apocalypse” means “a dramatic revelation.” This kind of hope can be yours right now! And, boy, don’t all of us need it?
Have you heard the “fire bell in the night?” National surveys in April uncovered millions of Americans who have concluded our nation is currently caught in the greatest existential crisis in our history. For them, ensuring the survival of our country—and of their own lives—is the most pressing challenge of our time.
Even for many Christians, it seems that pessimism reigns! Optimism, faith, a sense of security, trust in God—such outlooks remain in short supply for many. Growing numbers of Jesus followers claim to be experiencing levels of despair and fear that verge on “catastrophism” (as one editorial defined it).
How have YOU handled the barrage of “catastrophes”—personal, national, international? Do you see the world around you as beautiful—or does it feel increasingly threatening? Have the challenges coming at you in just the past 16 months seemed almost too much to bear?
Then, welcome to this latest episode of the CHRIST TODAY Podcast. David Bryant not only offers to help reignite your hope in Christ but even better: He wants to plant in your heart, maybe for the first time, what he calls an “APOCALYPTIC HOPE”—a hope powerful enough to give you solid victory over every one of life’s catastrophes.
