Going deeper questions (Small Group)

·         What stood out to you about this message and why?

·         Looking at the Four Horsemen, which one stands out to you and why? 

·         Considering that all pieces are led into place before the events of Revelation 6- 8 unfold, how possible is it that we are presently a part of the generation that will see this happen (verbally sketch your view)? Does this inspire you to know and live for God with greater intimacy?

·         Do these chapters show a God who is in our outside of control over human history? If in control, does His Sovereignty give you confidence to tell people about His coming judgment?
