  • Do not Go Gentle Into that Good Night-An. Easter Devotion

    4 ABR. 2024 · In Season 4, Episode 62 of Echoes Through Eternity, Dr. Skinner delves into the profound spiritual journey from the despair of Good Friday to the jubilant revelation of Easter Sunday, illustrating the ultimate victory of Jesus Christ over death and the promise of eternal life for all who believe. The episode, titled "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night!" captures the palpable shift from the gloom that enveloped the disciples and followers of Jesus after His crucifixion to the awe-inspiring moment of His resurrection.The narrative begins in the shadows of Friday's events—Judas's tragic end, the scattering of the disciples, and the deceptive silence of those who sought Jesus's death, juxtaposed against the backdrop of Rome's indifferent rule. Yet, even in this darkness, the earth itself rebels, as if nature itself mourns the injustice inflicted upon the Son of God, and the temple veil is torn, signaling a direct, unobstructed access to the divine.Dr. Skinner vividly recounts the eerie silence that follows the storm, a silence that seems to hold the weight of the world's grief. But then, the dawn of Sunday brings a miraculous revelation: the tomb is empty, and Jesus has risen. This moment of recognition between Mary Magdalene and the risen Christ is a tender testament to the personal relationship Jesus offers to each of us. The episode emphasizes the transformation that occurs within the disciples and all who hear of Jesus's resurrection. From fear and despair, there emerges a renewed faith and purpose, fueled by the undeniable truth of Jesus's victory over death. This resurrection is not just an event but a call to all believers to live out the teachings of Christ with fervor and conviction, spreading the good news of His love and salvation. Dr. Skinner connects this biblical narrative to the broader theme of overcoming darkness with light, of hope triumphing over despair. Through the lens of Wesleyan theology, he explores the implications of Jesus's resurrection for personal faith, community revival, and global transformation. The episode concludes with a powerful reminder of the ongoing echo of Jesus's victory through the lives of believers, a chorus of faith that joins the heavenly declaration, "He is Risen Indeed!" This installment of Echoes Through Eternity not only recounts the Easter story but also invites listeners to reflect on their own journey with Christ. It challenges each one to not go gentle into the good night of complacency or despair but to embrace the light of Christ's resurrection, living out the hope and love that it signifies.

  • Revelation All_things_new_Part3 w/Rev. Brad Bellomy

    7 NOV. 2023 · In Part 3 of "Revelation: All Things New," Dr. Jeff and Rev. Brad return to the Book of Revelation, offering profound insights from the perspective of its original audience, the Seven Churches in Asia Minor, who often faced persecution. In this episode, they unveil the symbolism woven throughout the text, shedding light on what these symbols represented and what they continue to signify as we navigate the book's narrative. **Key Symbols and Their Probable Meanings:** 1. **Seven Churches (Revelation 1:4):** These were real, historical churches in Asia Minor. The number seven signifies completeness or perfection, suggesting that Revelation's message is intended for the entire Church, extending beyond these specific congregations. 2. **Seven Lampstands (Revelation 1:12-13):** These symbolize the seven churches. Lampstands emit light, representing the churches' role in spreading the illumination of Christ within their communities. 3. **Son of Man (Revelation 1:13):** This title, attributed to Jesus, draws from the book of Daniel (Daniel 7:13-14) and emphasizes Jesus' divinity and supreme authority. 4. **Seven Stars (Revelation 1:16):** These represent the angels or messengers of the seven churches. These "angels" likely served as leaders or messengers responsible for conveying and reading John's letter to each congregation. 5. **White Robes (Revelation 3:4-5):** White symbolizes purity and victory. Those who triumph over trials and tribulations are promised white robes, signifying their righteousness and ultimate success. 6. **Candlesticks (Revelation 2:5):** Jesus warns that the lampstand will be removed from the church in Ephesus if they do not repent. This symbolizes the potential loss of their spiritual influence unless they return to their initial fervor for Christ. 7. **Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:6, 2:15):** The Nicolaitans were a heretical group within the church, and their actions and teachings were condemned. The origin and details of their beliefs remain unclear. 8. **Throne of Satan (Revelation 2:13):** In Pergamum, this likely referred to the city's connection with emperor worship and various pagan cults, highlighting the spiritual challenges faced by the church there. 9. **Jezebel (Revelation 2:20):** This symbolizes a woman in the church of Thyatira who led others into idolatry and sexual immorality, reminiscent of the biblical Jezebel in the Old Testament. 10. **New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2):** This represents the future heavenly abode of the redeemed, embodying the hope of a renewed and perfected world where God dwells with His people. 11. **The Dragon (Revelation 12:3-9):** The dragon represents Satan, who seeks to persecute and oppose the Church. This imagery may have been understood in the context of Roman oppression and persecution. 12. **The Beast (Revelation 13:1-10):** The beast often symbolizes oppressive political powers or rulers, potentially representing the Roman Empire or other tyrannical regimes. 13. **666 (Revelation 13:18):** This enigmatic number is associated with the beast and has sparked much speculation. It may have held a specific meaning understood by the original audience, potentially related to numerical codes denoting certain names or titles. Additionally, the use of the number six, juxtaposed with the number seven symbolizing completeness, could undermine claims of divine authority, challenging the emperor's insistence on god-like status. These examples illustrate the rich tapestry of symbolism in Revelation. Interpretations of these symbols may vary among scholars and theologians, but grounding our understanding in the historical and cultural context of the original seven churches provides invaluable insights into their likely meanings.

  • Revelation All_things_new_Part2 w/Rev. Brad Bellomy

    1 NOV. 2023 · In Part 2 of our series, Dr. Jeffrey D. Skinner and Rev. Brad Bellomy continue their insightful discussion and responsible reading of the Book of Revelation. **Episode 2: Context - The Seven Churches - Impact of Constantine** In this episode, we delve into the historical context of the seven churches mentioned in the Book of Revelation. Situated in Asia Minor, which corresponds to modern-day Turkey, these churches played a significant role in early Christianity. However, their context was marked by unique challenges: **1. Roman Occupation:** During the time of the book's writing, around 95-96 AD, the Roman Empire held sway over Asia Minor. The seven churches were scattered across this province, and their existence was intertwined with the broader Roman rule. **2. Persecution:** The early Christians faced periods of persecution within the Roman Empire. Emperor Domitian, known for his authoritarian rule, demanded unwavering loyalty to the Roman state, even to the extent of being worshiped as divine. This created a hostile environment for Christians who refused to bow to the emperor's demands, resulting in their persecution. The emergence of Constantine, a pivotal figure in Roman history, would later bring about significant changes. Prior to his reign, Christianity existed as a fringe religion, embraced mainly by the marginalized and oppressed. However, as Constantine embraced Christianity, it transformed from a faith of the few to a religion of the masses. This shift had profound implications for the future of Christianity. **3. Unveiling the Meaning of "Apocalypse"** Before we proceed, let's clarify the meaning of "apocalypse." In contemporary language, the term is often associated with visions of the end of the world—meteors, global warfare, or even the potential demise of humanity and the planet. However, the original Greek word, "apokalypsis," from which "apocalypse" is derived, carries a different connotation. "Apocalypse" signifies an unveiling or revealing, and it can also denote the disclosure of hidden knowledge or secrets. In the context of the seven churches in Asia Minor, John's message to them was akin to saying, "Hey, there's a secret message meant for you. Get your 'decoder ring'!" (with a touch of humor). As we explore the historical and theological landscape of the seven churches and their place within the Roman Empire, we gain valuable insights into the early Christian experience. Join us in Episode 2 as we uncover the layers of history and meaning behind the Book of Revelation.
