THE MILLENIUM

Message Series: Revelation: The End

Message: The MillenniumWeek # 7

Communicator: Pastor Stephen Masters

Big Idea: Look forward to the future, but live for Jesus today.

Central Text/s: Revelation 20:1-8

Wins and Words of the Week: Take time to share WINS, (what God did) and WORDS, (what God shared with you from His word) that moved you and others forward and closer to Jesus.

Ice Breaker: If you could instantly be an expert in a subject, what would it be and why?

Questions to Consider:

  1. From this week’s message: What made you laugh? What encouraged you? What made you scratch your head in confusion? What challenged you to make significant changes in your life as a result?  
  2. What are you looking forward to most when Jesus returns? 
  3. Read and discuss Revelation 20:1-3.  What do you think life would look like without Satan? Would the world be without sin during this time? Why or what not? 
  4. What “dragons” have you already slain in your life because of your relationship with Jesus? How do you keep those “dragons” defeated? 

Digging Deeper: 

  1. Stephen mentioned the idea of “already” (What we have in Christ now)  but “not yet” (What we will have upon His return). Read 1 John 3:2-3. From these verses, talk about what we have now as believers and what  we will have and experience when Jesus comes again? 
  2. What do you think it will be like when Jesus rules on this earth? What does it look like to let Jesus rule and reign in your life?  
  3. Read and discuss Revelation 20:7-8. Why do you suppose God unbound Satan and let him out of his prison? Why do you think Satan will try again to deceive the nations upon his release? 
  4. What word picture would you use to best describe “surrender”? How can that idea translate into your life in Christ and with others? Please be specific.
  5. Read Psalm 72:17-19. Take time as a group to worship Jesus our King.  This could be a great time of prayer, praise and Joy! Bless His name, declare what He has done in your life and ask Him to fill the whole earth with His glory. 
  6. Out of the four responses on the connection card, (1. I give my life to Jesus 2. I need to look to Jesus for my peace 3. I need to stop and thank God for what he has done 4. Jesus, reign in my heart! I give you control.)  which resonated with you? How do you plan on addressing it in your life? How can we as a group best support you? 

Questions for Application: 

  1. What specific steps will I/We take to live out what we just discussed? 
  2. Who can we share this message or truth with? What is their name?
  3. Who are you praying for to know Jesus? What is their name?
  4. Who will I partner with to keep me accountable so I/We can grow?
