Church Matters Podcast: Episode 58:
Remembering God's Future ... This is Not the End
Guest: Willard Metzger, Executive Director, Mennonite Church Canada
During Advent, the church re-tells the story of Jesus birth. Indeed, the word Advent means “coming.” In the book of Revelation, we read about Jesus “coming again.” When God’s people first heard about Christ’s birth, many were anticipating a new future and relief from oppression. Christians today anticipate God’s new future in Jesus’ coming - again.
Today, some Christians envision Jesus’ return as a destructive, apocalyptic event. Others understand Jesus’ return as the revelation of a new creation on earth, in which all things are again made new, where peace will reign eternally. Whichever way you understand the book of Revelation, Willard Metzger reminds us that the end is not ours, but that the end belongs to God.
Metzger’s message was recorded live at the 2011 Mennonite Church Canada Assembly in Waterloo, Ontario, on July 6.
