Unfolding toward God’s restoration

The word apocalypse literally means “an uncovering” or “a revealing”. It doesn’t sound like an ending at all, does it? Rather, Jesus explains that there will be those who speak in his name falsely, they will claim to be the Christ, there will be wars and the threat of wars, nations and kingdoms will rise up against one another, there will be earthquakes and famines…just for starters! These things are not so much deaths but birth pangs. And, birth pangs always precede the birth of something new. What will be new is the fulfillment of God’s mission – the restoration of all things to God’s self.
