“And they said to the mountains and to the rocks, fall on us and hide us from the face of the one seated on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of their wrath has come! And who is able to stand? ” (Revelation 6:16-17 CSB)KJV)
We looked at the bad of Revelation 6, yesterday. Let’s revisit. The Antichrist, war, famine, death, hell, and the Lamb’s wrath will be unleashed. And, there will be martyrs. But God…He has allowed us to live in the age of His grace. He has provided us a way to escape. His name is Jesus. Jesus, the Son of God, the Lamb, was slain for us to eternally escape the wrath we deserve.
The good news is…Jesus! The heavens will be rolled up and removed (Rev.6:14). All remaining left on earth will see the face of God who sits on the throne and the unavoidable wrath of the Lamb. As followers of Christ, here and now, we get to escape the day of the Lamb’s wrath.
How? I believe the trumpet will sound and before we can bat an eye, we, the body of Christ, will be taken out of here before the great day of wrath.
“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel’s voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are still alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 CSB)
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed.” (1 Corinthians 15:52 CSB)
Repeatedly in Word of God the body of Christ is told that we escape the wrath:
- We are saved through Jesus from wrath.He took the wrath for us.
“But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. How much more then, since we have now been declared righteous by his blood, will we be saved through him from wrath.” (Romans 5:8-9 CSB)
- We will be rescued from the coming wrath.
“…how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead – Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath. ” (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10 CSB)
- We are not appointed to wrath but salvation.We do not have an appointment with wrath but with Jesus, our Salvation.
“But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled and put on the armor of faith and love, and a helmet of the hope of salvation. For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,” (1 Thessalonians 5:8-9 CSB)
I enCOURAGE you not to miss your appointment with destiny and the journey of your lifetime. Choose Jesus, NOW! If you have read this, accept this as yet another of His invitations to make your life right. He has made the call. Actually, I believe the Lord has called you repeatedly. How many times have you looked at the caller ID and rejected Him? Your salvation is NOW. Get your one-way ticket out of here and escape the Lamb’s coming wrath. Expiring SOON.
“The one who endures to the end will be saved.” (Matthew 24:13 CSB)
