October 23, 2021 – Revelation 15-18

The visions John is given continue with the picturing of many judgments against the enemies of God on earth: seven angels with seven plagues, the seven bowls of God's wrath, the prostitute Babylon, the kings, and the war against the Lamb. Here is a terrible warning against all who oppose God; even the greatest and strongest will fall: “God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath” (16:19). Furthermore, the enemies of God “will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful”(17:14). Not to be too flippant here, but it’s good to be on the winning side!


And when this great battle is ended,

When Jesus shall come for His own,

By myriads of angels attended,

We’ll meet ’round our Father’s white throne,

And part nevermore, never, never;

With loved ones and saved ones we’ll sing,

And praise Him forever and ever,

Our Savior, our God, and our King. -- John E. Roberts (1893)
