This Sunday at Mayfair | November 5th 2017

This Sunday at Mayfair, we heard the Bible’s last words on Satan.

Have you ever felt like Satan had you under his thumb? Guilt, addiction, pride—he uses those temptations and many more every day, especially on those who believe. Many times, if you’re a Christian, the pain Satan brings is twice as hard, because he’ll always tell you to compare yourself with all your other brothers and sisters.

Our study in Revelation has led us to chapters 12 and 13, where Satan comes on the scene as a terrible dragon.

Satan has been trying to divide and despair us from the beginning, but there’s something God wants us to know. In case you made it to the end of the Bible with any doubts, Revelation makes it very clear; Satan is the loser.

When the dragon tries to go for Jesus, he loses. When he tries to go against the martyrs, he loses. When he takes up battle with the angels, he loses. When he takes his anger out on the Church he loses. When all is said and done, Satan just loses.

And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.” (Revelation 12:11 NASB)

Do you need help overcoming Satan in your life?

This Sunday at Mayfair | October 15th 2017

This Sunday at Mayfair, we heard God’s last words on evil.

Our study in Revelation continues as we make our way into chapter six and seven. John is led into the throne room of heaven and the opening of the seven-sealed scroll begins.

When the first four seals are opened, all kinds of terrible things happen, things many of us have sadly experienced: strife, war, hunger, poverty, disease, death. And when the fifth seal is opened, the voices of all the Christian martyrs call out wanting to know how long it will be until the evil people in the world are judged.

If you wanted to sum up everything that brings us doubt in this life, the first five seals wouldn’t be a bad choice. And after reading, it’s not surprising if you’d want to ask God why evil has to exist in the first place?

What answer does Revelation give? God isn’t trying to explain away evil, but He is in control, and He will judge the world one day. Most importantly, even though bad things happen to good people, God knows His people in the midst of it all.

This Sunday at Mayfair | September 17th 2017

This Sunday at Mayfair, we started our new series on the “Famous Last Words” of the Bible.

There’s just something about last words that is extremely intriguing. It’s a chance to sum everything up, to leave a legacy, to remind us what’s really important.

To many people, even many Christians, the last words of the Bible are just. . .confusing.

But one of the things we gathered this morning was that the book of Revelation wasn’t meant to confuse, it was meant to be understood, and furthermore, to provide a blessing to those who understood it (Rev 1:3).

God’s message hasn’t changed into something we aren’t meant to understand, right at the end. If we listen, we will understand, and if we understand, how could our lives possibly remain unchanged?

These are the Bible’s famous last words, so if you’re curious what Jesus’s parting message was, join us next Sunday. We’ll be happy to have you!
