Re:Verse reading–Revelation 6 (day four)
There was joy in heaven…the Lion of Judah was worthy to break the seals and open the scroll. You might expect that good things were going to happen. As each seal was broken, tragedy came upon the earth…war, famine, death, martyrs, terror. The people of the earth tried to run and hide, but there was nowhere to hide. They even wanted the mountains and rocks to fall on them to hide them from the presence of God. The great day of wrath had come…they had put it off for too long. “I still have time to follow Christ. I’ll maybe do it after I have done all that I want to do.” Is this the reasoning that you have been making? We do not know when the Day of the Lord will come, but when it does…like a thief in the night…it will be too late to repent.
Will you have joy like the angels in heaven or will you be looking for a deep cave to collapse upon you? What will you do with Jesus?
