Re: Verse reading–Revelation 15 and 16 (day three)

“God remembered Babylon the Great.”  No matter how powerful a national presence, nor how sophisticated a society, nor how celebrated one’s individual accomplishment, all must answer to God.  And just when one believes that God isn’t aware, that he doesn’t see, God remembers: “Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”  No one—no person, no group, no geopolitical entity—will get away with pitting his will against the Almighty’s.  This dreadful reality is actually the hope of those who count on God, just like it was the hope of our Savior, who declared as he stood before Pilate: “You would have no power if it weren’t given to you from above.”  Every power remains only as long as God allows—and no longer.
