Key Verse: V2 “For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies: He hath utterly destroyed them, He hath delivered them to the slaughter.”
1. God’s patience has limit.
V2 “For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations,….”
It was not just one nation but all nations were evil and wicked and God’s indignation shall be upon them. As we heard of the merciless terrorist attack on Mumbai, the heart of India, killing at least a hundred people; the mass demonstration and riots in Bangkok, Thailand, and the many unrest taking place in the world, we can’t help but wonder where is God? However, the prophet Isaiah prophesied that one day God shall judge the wickedness and evil committed by all the nations. Though God is a patient God, His patience has limit and one day, His indignation shall be upon all the nations in the Battle of Armageddon, the final World War!
Revelation 16:14-16 “….to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty……And He gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.”
2. God’s mercy has limit.
V2 “For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies: …”
Even though God is a merciful God but the evil and wickedness that the people committed were so repulsive and severe that God’s fury or great anger was upon all the armies of the world. Immorality, divorce, violence, crimes, alcoholism, drug taking, etc., are increasing at an alarming rate and these sins have become part and parcel of the lives of many people in the world.
3. God’s love has limit.
V2 “For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies: He hath utterly destroyed them, He hath delivered them to the slaughter.”
Even though God is love, yet God’s love has limit when the people refuse to believe in Him and do what is right before God. As a result, God shall judge the nations of the world. It is terrible to be judged of God. Unless, we believe and trust in God and do what is right before Him, we shall be completely destroyed and cast into hell on Judgment Day.
Revelation 20:11-15 “And I saw a great white throne,….And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
