The seven last plagues announced
John’s vison or dream continues highlighting the difference between what happens to those who have followed Christ who are singing the songs they have been given and are protected and those who are not and will be exposed to bad things.
In all the challenges that face the global church, this certain truth of Christ’s return and the exacting of perfect justice is the rock on which we stand. Especially in times of adversity, we remember the tender care of his saints. As we squabble with each other or our own consciences we remember the one who shed his own blood for us. When we are ridiculed, maligned, insulted or excluded by others because of our loyalty to Christ, we remember that one day we will reign with him and share in the glory of God.
Help me Lord to use the gifts you have given me to your Glory
