Please read Revelation chapters 15, 16, 17, and 18. One day to go – it’s unbelievable, really! Come on back and let’s visit a little bit!
The bowls are judgements, full of God’s wrath. Please, please keep in mind the character of God that we have spent a year learning: God is kind, God is patient, God is loving, God is just. Nothing He does is without purpose. Everything He does is to draw us back to Him. Apply 1 Corinthians 13 (the “love chapter”) to the Lord – read it with His name in place of the word “love”, it will be a great comfort and blessing today.
” ‘For in one hour such great riches [a]came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance” Revelation 18:17
“In one such hour such great rushes came to nothing”. Listen at how the Phillips reads: “They even threw dust on their heads and cried aloud as they wept, saying, “Alas, alas for the great city where all who had ships on the sea grew wealthy through the richness of her treasure! Alas that in a single hour she should be ruined!”
Life, time, truly is fleeting. Lord, help me to set my heart on what will last, on what truly matters.
