Today you should read: Revelation 15:1-4

“With them God’s wrath is completed”

As I read today’s passage the words above really hit home. These seven plagues would be it. Once these were released upon the world there would be no more wrath left in God. “God’s wrath is completed”. In the world we live in presently we have not seen this become a reality. The truth is, we are living in a world where that wrath is being “stored up” (Romans 2:5). Our world today is, I believe, going to witness this out pouring of wrath from God. The moral decay and spiritual apathy of mankind has probably never been so great in all of history and the enemy has probably never had more of a grip on this world than he does now. At the same time, in our reading we see those who stood up against the enemy and paid for it with their lives. They stood victorious and praised the God who gave them the strength to do it.

So here we are, closing in on the end of time and the beginning of all that we are reading. My hope is that I, along with all of you will do 3 things:

Rejoice that God’s wrath will soon end

We will soon have eternity with a God who has no righteous anger or just vengeance to carry out. All will be right and perfect.

Reach out to those who are currently storing up that wrath for themselves

Read Romans 2:5. If that is you, repent and turn to Jesus for forgiveness. If you have people in your world who this is them, share the gospel with them and pray for them to escape that wrathful day.

Stand firm in your faith

As the end approaches people will, more and more, turn further and further away from the truth and turn to the lies of the enemy. They will become more and more hostile to the truth and to those who stand on it. Real persecution is coming to America and, in many ways, it is already here. Will you be ready to stand firm against it?
