Re: Verse reading–Revelation 17 – 18 (Day seven)
“You surely will not die”, said the snake. (Genesis 3:5)
It is a long strategy of our Enemy. Time-tested. He convinces men that there is no danger. “You are a good person.” “No one believes anymore in a God who sends people to Hell.” ” I have received Christ”. Swallowing the bait, we ignore God’s word, God’s warning when it comes. Never even consider it.
“Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”–Philippians 2:12. What could that possibly mean if (as Satan whispers) there is nothing to fear?
“Do not be deceived ( seeing the pattern?) God is not mocked! Whatever a man sows, this we he also reap.”–Galatians 6:7.
Today, we read Revelation 17 and 18. As promised, Rome falls! What else would we expect? Immorality, cruelty, unbelief, self-glorification reaches beyond the mercy of God.
Lord, give us ears and urgency and the courage to act! Our enemy has deceived many, saying that there is nothing to fear.
