Then everyone—the kings of the earth, the rulers, the generals, the wealthy, the powerful, and every slave and free person—all hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains. And they cried to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb. For the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to survive?” —Revelation 6:15-17
Jesus just may come back in our lifetime! Are you ready? When He comes back it will be with great power. Every person from every spectrum of society on earth that does not know Him will seek to hide from Him. They will understand that His wrath has come upon them they will be greatly afraid.
There are groups that many be feared today who terrorize people: ISIS, al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram…— https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_designated_terrorist_groups and the list is extensive. These are just terrorist groups! But they fearfully affect parts of the earth and do so for their own wicked purposes. When Jesus comes back His wrath is going to be carrying out justice in righteousness and none will escape His judgment!
I am so glad that I have trusted Jesus as Lord and Savior so I will not have to meet Him as Judge. It is a joy to know Him now, serve Him now with the expectation of being with Jesus in that perfect place one day— Heaven. Even so come Lord Jesus!
Dear Father, oh may it not be long before all who love the Lord Jesus will be with Him in glory. We so look forward to that day. But, You have us on this earth for Your purposes so may we be faithful in living them out in the authority of Jesus and by the Holy Spirit’s power. So be it!
