Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.  They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!  For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?” —Revelation 6:15-17

            Judgment day is coming!

Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. —II Peter 3:3-7

            It will not matter in that day how rich or poor a person is. It will not matter from what spectrum of society a person exists in. They can be the most or lest powerful person in the world, but their doom will be the same for all who have not called on the Name of the Lord to be saved (Romans 10:13).  

Why has not the Lord come back yet? It is because “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (II Peter 3:9).  Who is the Lord patient with? He is patient with His Church to finish the responsibility He has given to share the gospel with all nations “and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14). It is those of us who follow our Lord that He is being patient with to get the gospel out so others can be saved. That is why He has not come back yet. In His sovereignty we can hasten His coming by the way we live in getting the gospel to all nations. There are those who say they really desire the Lord to come back. Well, then how much are they helping to get the gospel out to all nations?

The wrath of God is coming! It will be a fearful day! Let us who follow Jesus warn others of the coming wrath and encourage them to come into the safety of our Loving Lord Jesus! May this be so.

Dear Father please help me to share Your gospel with those around me and warn them of the coming judgment. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
