DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

- How do most of your friends and family think and feel about God’s judgment?  How does our society view God’s judgment? 

- How do you tend to view God’s judgment?  Do you think about it very often?  Does it worry you?  Do you feel like you have confidence to withstand his final judgment?

- What are the things that might blind us from seeing God’s wrath and his judgment rightly?

- 1 John 4:8 says, “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”  How can this God of love be the same God we see pouring out punishment in Revelation 8?

- How does the awful nature of God’s wrath poured out here in Chapter 8 and following help us better understand what happened on the cross?

- The prayers of the saints and of martyrs play an important role in Revelation.  What role do they play in Chapter 8?  How should this passage impact the way we pray?  (Read Rev. 6:9-10 for more insight in how we should pray).

- Do you find yourself longing for God’s judgment like the saints?

MISSIONAL TREASURE HUNT

Jesus has placed us here, and he stands in our midst. 

We are the lampstand in our city.

- This is your ‘missional map’.  We will fill it in a little each week.

- Map your regular places (homes, schools, frequented stores, etc)
