Are we living in the end times? What if the players depicted in the book of Revelation were out in force today? And if they were, would you know how to recognize them? In Agents of the Apocalypse, noted prophecy expert Dr. David Jeremiah does what no Bible teacher has done before. He explores the book of Revelation through the lens of its major players: the exile, the martyrs, the 144,000, the two witnesses, the dragon, the beast from the earth, the beast from the sea, the Victor, the King, and the Judge. Skillfully crafted to engage both the heart and the mind, each chapter opens with an engaging, biblically based dramatization that brings prophecies to life as never before. As Dr. Jeremiah presents these agents in the context of their unique times and places in the end times, he weaves a rich tapestry of the temperaments, motives, and conspiracies that Scripture tells us will precipitate earth’s final days. Then, in each chapter, Dr. Jeremiah provides a detailed study called “The Scripture behind the Story,” which explores some of Revelation’s most cryptic passages, explaining how to interpret them and, most important, how they apply to the malevolent forces at play in the world today. The stage is set, and the curtain is about to rise on earth’s final act. Will you be ready? The Tent Young Adult Ministry Meets on the 1st & 3rd Friday of the Month at 7:00PM at Middletown Church of the Nazarene. Small groups meet every Monday night at 7:00pm in various locations.

Teen Sunday School CHURCH MINISTRIES Front Door Greeters Needed Arnie Everett needs help with greeters for the front outside door. Two people are needed each Sunday from 10:00-10:15.

It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery is now in over 20,000 churches worldwide! Meeting Every Sunday Night right here at the Middletown Church of the Nazarene— 5:00 PM.
