GLOBAL WARFARE--WHAT IS COMING IS WORSE THAT ANYTHING EVER SEEN BEFORE
"It is horrible to see families torn apart, a nation being decimated before our eyes as we watch online. The invasion of Ukraine is awful, but it is ONLY A FORETASTE of what God has warned us is right around the corner! Revelation Explains: When God’s Wrath Comes In Revelation 5:8 we see for the first time, where all the prayers have gone. Every prayer from the very first prayers of humanity lifted up from Adam and Eve, through all the Old Testament era, and on through the New Testament era, and right up to the most recent prayer being lifted at this moment around the world by saints like us today: EVERY prayer has landed in one spot. God is amazing. He does not forget us, He never misplaces our requests, and He doesn’t ever ignore us. God Almighty is amazingly patient. Paul explains that all of the hardness of every sinful heart is “treasuring up” wrath from God (Romans 2:5). God stores His wrath, like an electrical charge, building up until with blinding light, blazing power, and a deafening roar, His wrath begins to stroke downward like a deadly thunderstorm. We have now come to the final element of worship in Revelation 5:9-14. As we earlier studied Rev. 4-5 we found that these chapters describe worship that surrounds God at this very moment and into the future. That element is: True Biblical Worship: Understands God’s Wrath is Against Un-Confessed, Un-Forsaken, and Un-Forgiven Sins (from Revelation 5:9b-14) The first warning from God to the world, about His immense wrath against sin, was when He destroyed all but eight humans with a flood of water, in the days of Noah. The global flood is a critical doctrine in the plan of God. That is why that Flood has been so belittled by those who want to push God far away, out of touch, and not an Almighty cosmic interrupter of humanity’s unbroken sinfulness. The second and mightiest warning from God about how severely He looks upon mankind’s sin was demonstrated when God showed the world His abundant mercy and grace by pouring out His wrath against sin onto Jesus as He hung upon that cross. Then, God has patiently waited while His saints have crossed the globe, sharing the Good News. Explaining how to avert the wrath of God forever against sin. Now, God is going to start pouring out His stored-up wrath against the earth-dwellers here in chapter 5, and then finally, in Rev 20, against all sinners who have not enrolled in God’s amnesty for sinners program, by casting all un-forgiven sinners into Hell forever. God connects for us, in Revelation 5, the Tribulation’s judgments with the worship of the redeemed around the Throne, mixed with the prayers of all the saints. Paul explains the wrath of God in Romans 1:18: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.” Jesus returns in the blazing fire of wrath against sin in II Thessalonians 1:7b-8 when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Revelation 6-20 completely fits as a result of the finished work of Christ upon the Cross. He stands with His arms open to the world and pours out His righteous and holy wrath against sinners who will not turn to Him away from their sins. What is the Tribulation? For any student of the Bible, you know that God has promised a time when He will judge the inhabitants of the earth for their rebellion. It is a time when God, at last, pours out direct wrath upon the people who have followed Satan in his rebellion against God. That time period, described in the Bible as the “great tribulation” is a time that can only be summarized by some: Staggering Numbers In the Great Tribulation, more than 2 ½ million die every day for 42 months." from video introduction.
