This Sunday at Mayfair, we heard the Bible’s last words on judgement.
Judgement isn’t a very popular topic these days. In our culture, judgement (especially ultimate judgement) is basically taboo. But let’s hit the reset button on judgement, forget what culture says about it, and hear what God says about it in Revelation.
Our Revelation study continued in chapters 15 and 16 this week; the seven bowls of God’s wrath were poured out on the beast and those who worship him. But why and how?
Well, God stands as the ultimate judge of the world. He made everything, including us, and though He gives us the choice to do as we please, if we choose to align against Him, He is going to respect that choice—even if we put ourselves on the wrong side of His wrath for injustice.
But even while the angels are pouring out the bowls of God’s wrath, the people are constantly being giving a chance to repent. Even in the Old Testament, God always gave a chance to repent.
Revelation shows us we can’t go putting off repentance forever though. Will we repent before it’s too late?
