Scripture:

…seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, for with them the wrath of God is finished. v1

And they sing…’Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty!’ v3

Observation:

God’s wrath will all be finalized. 

God will be celebrated when it is all finished and His enemies are destroyed.

Application:

Seems pretty morbid, huh? Why are they celebrating God as the angels throw down plagues and wrath against God’s enemies?

See – God has told us from the beginning that he will destroy evil. Even in the garden, right after Eve & Adam eat the fruit, God talks about this one day when Eve’s seed will crush the serpent. 

God’s plan from the beginning of time was to crush evil through the son, the seed, Jesus. God crushed Jesus, so that through this crushing the enemy would be crushed. 

God’s plan was always to finish the job one day & destroy evil for good and all those who align themselves with it. But this same God went on a rescue mission for those who were deceived, confused, and broken. He beckons, begs even, come, come to me & be saved!

Why will you stay here, with this enemy only to die with him one day?

This God of grace will one day make an end to evil and all those who stick by it’s side. That day will be a terrible day, but it will also be a day to rejoice. 

No more death ever.
No more gossip ever.
No more addiction ever.
No more fighting ever.
No more of that thing inside of you that you have to fight everyday.

No more evil desires ever.
No more killing ever.
No more sexual abuse ever.
No more bullying ever.
No more.
No more.

NO MORE.

That will be a day to rejoice. 

Prayer:

Thank you Jesus for coming to save & also for one day coming to destroy all the evil that has stood up against you. All the evil that has clung to me & my soul and all the people I love and care about. Thank you for coming to destroy it. Thank you for promising it & for one day fulfilling it. You are an awesome God. You are an awesome Savior. You are wholly different. You are holy. I am undeserving but you make a way. Thank you. I look forward to that day.
