Revelation 15: Are You A Servant Of God?
Verse of the Day: (V3) “And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.”
1. Wrath Of God (V1-2)
V1 “And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.”
During the Great Tribulation period, though God is full of wrath, when in His permissive will, He allows Satan to have control of the world in deceiving the people - who have the free will to choose - to commit sins of immorality and idolatry, yet in His everlasting love and amazing grace, He desires all to believe in Him, and be with Him in glorious heaven.
2. Servant Of God (V3-7)
V4 “Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.”
Not all is doom and gloom, as the Almighty God eventually bounds and casts Satan into the bottomless pit for 1,000 years, and Jesus, the Lamb, then reign on the new Jerusalem on the new earth, and all the people from all nations who believe and trust in Him, including the 144,000 Jews and 2 faithful witnesses, shall come and worship before Him. They shall sing the song of Moses as well as the song of the Lamb, praising and glorifying Him, for His holiness, greatness and marvellous works of redemption and deliverance of all His saints both now and forever. Indeed, God used Moses, His servant, during the Old Testament era, to perform one of His great miracles - the opening of the Red sea - for Israel, His chosen people. Once Israel crossed the Red sea dry, God closed it, and covered and drowned all the pursuing Egyptian soldiers who were after them!
3. Glory Of God (V8)
V8 “And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.”
During the Great Tribulation period, God shall send His 7 angels to pour His 7 last plagues upon the world to judge the great sins of the people who are misled and deceived by Satan. Indeed, God always wins and He shall ultimately defeat Satan though many times it seems that Satan and his demons are on the winning side with their cunning devices. Today, let us believe in Jesus Christ who sacrificed Himself some 2,000 years ago, not for His own sins, but for the sins of the whole world, that whoever believes in Him shall never perish in fiery hell, but have everlasting life with Him in glorious heaven!
Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, please help me to be Your servant to serve and glorify You.
