THE BIBLE SHOWS THAT THE WICKEDNESS OF THE WORLD PROVOKES GOD WRATH
That’s why we continue to pray: make sure we are right with God personally
• Then Seek God’s face for our immediate and extended families
• People around us that we come in contact with
• Whatever and whoever the Lord lays on our hearts
• Nobody knows the exact occurrence of the Rapture
• But we can look around and see the signs and seasons
THE JUDGMENT OF GOD SHOWN IN :
John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
• God’s wrath was revealed in the past, is shown in the present, and will be revealed in the future.
GOD’S WRATH REVEALED IN THE PRESENT:
Romans 1:24: 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Romans 1:26: For this cause, God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Romans 1:28: 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
GOD’S WRATH REVEALED IN THE FUTURE
John 15:6 – If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.
Luke 12:5 – But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.
Revelation 20:15 – And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
GOD HATH SHOWN HIS LOVE TOWARD US
• He made way for humanity when not deserved
The Divine Wrath of God towards sin was upon Jesus Christ
• He became the propitiation (satisfaction, atonement, resolution) for our sins
Romans 3:25: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God
Romans 5:8: 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 3:23 … For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Eph 2:1: And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
JESUS TELLS ABOUT REMAINING WATCHFUL FOR HIS COMING
Matthew 24:37-39: Jesus said: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
The Bible says there is nothing new under the sun
Ecclesiastes 1:9: 9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
