In 2023, we are closer to the second coming of Christ and end-time events than ever before. How do you prepare for these events? Where do you fit in? The answers are in the book of Revelation. We will examine Revelation 6–22 chapter by chapter, focusing on the key players: heroes, overcomers, and villains. We will also investigate the major coming events from the dispensational premillennial interpretation that has been taught in our church for the last 75 years. As a result, we will learn how to live our lives today in light of the imminent return of Christ and the accompanying end-time events.
