"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" 1 Peter 3:15 (KJV)
The Terrorizing Wrath of God Part 1
“The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath”
People enjoy talking and hearing about God’s love. It is so comforting to know that we serve a God that loves us that much. One of the most recognizable portions of Scripture is indeed John 3:16 “For God so love the world…”
However, because of a misunderstanding of what love really is there are many distorted false doctrines concerning God’s greatest character trait. There are even those who are teaching people the Doctrine of Inclusion. Inclusion means that everybody is going to make it to heaven no matter what, because “God is Love.”
Pope Francisco is telling the world that all good people will be redeemed. Wow! No need for Jesus, no need for the cross and no need for repentance. And don’t think for a minute that Pope Francisco is the only one generating a new Gospel; some in the Evangelical world are preaching a Gospel that is inexistence in Scripture.
This approach to God is generating a generation that has forgotten that God is worthy of all reverence. It is amazing to me that we call a mere man a Reverend, but we approach God like He is our buddy who is there to save us when we get ourselves in trouble while the rest of the time we just do as we want.
Yes! God is our Daddy! Yes! God is our friend! Yet God continues to be God! When we read the book of Revelation, we don’t have to spend too much time to find out the reverence that our God receives in Heaven. We are rapidly, as a society in general, loosing respect for everything and everybody: from our parents, our elderly, our religious leaders, our schoolteachers and our own God.
Today I want to start a series about God’s Wrath as we take a look at Revelation Sixteen and The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath.
