But the people who did not die in these plagues still refused to repent of their evil deeds and turn to God. They continued to worship demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood—idols that can neither see nor hear nor walk! And they did not repent of their murders or their witchcraft or their sexual immorality or their thefts. —Revelation 9:20-21
After 1/3 of mankind dies in these future three plagues people will still refuse to repent and turn to God. They would rather worship demons, murder, practice witchcraft, be involved in sexual immorality and rob. How sad is that? This will happen in the future, but people today also would rather be involved in these sinful lifestyles rather then turn to the Lord God Almighty.
Ever since the Fall when Adam and Eve disobeyed God sin has dominated most of mankind. Comparatively speaking there has always been a minority of the present population of this world that has repented and truly turned to the Lord God Almighty. The vast majority would rather live their sinful lifestyles. How sad is that? This must so grieve our Creator deeply (Genesis 6:5-8).
But praise be to our Lord and Savior Jesus who redeems a people to Himself. All that the Father has given Him He does not lose. All that the Father draws to Jesus will call on His Name for salvation from sin, a new life with Him and will be with Him forever in that perfect place— Heaven. Brother and sister let us rejoice in knowing Him now and for the home in Heaven He is preparing for us (John 14:1-6). Let us also live faithfully for Him and all that means. Let us also tell others the Good News about Jesus! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zARVp3420I&list=PLcHqC9YNzSaD-O-rkP9o8hDA9jJ_oja4l&index=4
Dear Father, it is so sad that people rather live for themselves than for You. May I be faithful in living for You for the rest of my life. I so look forward to being with You and with all who love You in Heaven. May I be and do what You desire of me in the authority of my Lord Jesus and in the power of Your Holy Spirit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv5j7pX7yF8
