“We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.” —Revelation 11-17-18

             People can think and believe what they want, but a reckoning is coming.  People can blaspheme God, deny God, disbelieve in God, but in the end He will have the last say.  This should be obvious with the simple fact that we die and where death came from.  Why do we die?  Because death entered the human race the same time sin did.  This was the warning given to Adam in Genesis 2:16-17— And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”  Death we experience is a result of disobedience to God and judgment from Him (Genesis 3).  His wrath will come one day to all who reject Him— wrath here on this planet and the eternal wrath of hell after death.

            But for all those who have called on Jesus (Romans 10:13), our Lord God Almighty will reward them for faithfulness.  Yes, this day is coming.  Time is winding down.  If could happen within our lifespan.  Are you ready to meet your Maker?  If not, then call on His Name now and live faithful for Him as He shows you how to in His Word and be what He desires you to be!

Dear Father I am so grateful to know what will happen in the future and that You are Sovereign over that future.  I am safe in Your hands.  May I live in such a way as to honor You.  May that be so by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.
