The coming wrath of God

 

“I the Lord have spoken. The time has come for me to act. I will not hold back; I will not have pity, nor will I relent. You will be judged according to your conduct and your actions, declares the sovereign Lord.” (Ezekiel 24:14)

 

“The Lord will march out like a mighty man, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.” {14} For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant. {15} I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers and islands and dry up the pools.”

(Isaiah 42: 13-15)

 

When God breaks His silence with sin, it will happen suddenly. But, there is one thing that separates the wrath of God from violet, random acts of nature. God reveals what he is going to do before He does it. Historically, God’s wrath servers yesterday from today. I believe we are going to experience the wrath of God within the next two and a half years. Life as we have known it will immediately and irrevocably change. The world has never witnessed anything like the coming judgments of God, nor could it sustain another visitation. God will act suddenly and powerfully and all peoples in every nation will be awed by His swiftness and severity. What is Jesus about to do? He is about to open the 4th seal:

 

“When the Lamb opened the fourth seal… I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” (Revelation 6:7,8)

 

Beginning of the Great Tribulation

 

The opening of the fourth seal marks the beginning of the great tribulation. So extensive will be the cataclysm that God has promised that this tribulation shall not exceed 1,335 days (Daniel 12:11,12). But, during this period, 25% of Earth’s 7 billion will perish. Such an assault on human beings will begin with nothing less than a direct order from God. So, why will He do this to us?

 

Isaiah explains, “See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants… The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The Lord has spoken this word… Its people defile the earth; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.” (Isaiah 24:1-6)

 

 

Symbolic or literal – past or future?

 

Some people argue that the four judgments of the fourth seal are symbolic and therefore, not to be taken literally. Others say that the fourth seal happened long ago. Many argue that God does not kill people anyway. Let the Bible speak. Notice this: “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals… Or if I send wild beasts through the country and leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one can pass through it because of the beasts… Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its men and animals… Or if I send a plague into the land and pour out my wrath upon it through bloodshed, killing its men and animals… For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: How much worse will it be when I send against Jerusalem my four dreadful judgments – sword and famine and wild beast and plague - to kill its men and their animals…  ‘They will come to you (Ezekiel), and when you see their conduct and their actions, you will be consoled regarding the disaster I have brought upon Jerusalem – every disaster I have brought upon it. You will be consoled when you see their conduct and their actions, for you will know that I have done nothing in it without cause,’ declares the Sovereign Lord.” (Ezekiel 14:13-23)

(Emphasis mine.)

 

No one can reasonably say after reading these verses that God’s four judgments of plague, famine, sword and wild beasts are symbolic. Furthermore, God personally claims responsibility for sending “His four dreadful judgments” upon man. God also justified Himself to Ezekiel for doing such things by saying, “I have done nothing in it without cause.” Understand that God has used these four judgments in the past and He is going to use these four judgments in the near future.

 

The full cup principle

 

What brings a loving God to the point where He will send horrific judgments upon human beings? Sin. Today, many people interpret God’s silence or passiveness with sin to mean that He is either indifferent to what we do, or He depends on the inescapable consequences of sin to deal with our evil ways. Others assume that His silence is proof that He does not hold us accountable for our day-to-day activities. For this reason, people are committing horrible deeds of evil all the while thinking that God does not care or see. But, the truth is that each one of us will have to render to our Maker a full accounting for every action!

 

Solomon warned: “Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.”

(Ecclesiastes 12:13,14) Paul affirms the judgment saying, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or evil.” (2 Corinthians 5:10)

 

 

Christian’s talk and sing about God’s mercy – His saving grace, but few openly talk about God’s anger or wrath. Why? Are we afraid to know what makes God angry? Have we made a religious caricature of God separating His justice from His mercy?

 

To put God’s wrath into perspective, we have to review a little Bible history to observe that God follows a consistent principle in dealing with humanity. This principle is called the “full cup principle.” The concept is so simple that even a child can understand it. In essence, when a person, city, nation or body of people reach a certain level of decadence or wickedness, God’s patience expires and He breaks his silence with divine judgments. If the situation is redeemable, His judgments are redemptive. If the situation is beyond redemption, His judgments are utterly destructive.

 

Examples

 

In the days of Noah… “The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.  The Lord was grieved that He had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, ‘I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth-men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air-for I am grieved that I have made them.’” (Genesis 6:5-7)

 

God destroyed the world with a flood in Noah’s day because the antediluvians cup of iniquity had reached full measure. God broke His silence by the first warning the world through Noah of what He was going to do, and then, He proceeded to destroy the inhabitants of the world as promised. When divine love and mercy no longer produced repentance and reformation in the antediluvians, God demanded destructive action. Please notice in Genesis 8:21 that God took full responsibility for destroying the earth.

 

Amorite’s fill up their cup:

 

“Then the Lord said to him (Abraham), ‘Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own, and they will be enslaved and mistreated four hundred years. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterwards they will come out with great possessions. You however, will go to your fathers in peace and be buried at a good old age. In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for their sin of the Amorites has not reached its full measure.’” (Genesis 15:13-16) 

 

Notice the last sentence of this text. God would only give the land of Canaan to Abraham’s offspring after the sins of the Amorites had reached full measure! Make no mistake about this. God does not steal land from one nation to give to another. All the earth belongs to our Creator and He would only give it to Abraham’s descendants after the Amorites had exhausted their opportunity of possessing that beautiful land. Also keep in mind that ancient Israel’s possession of Canaan was based on the same conditions applicable to the Amorites. Moses knew that possession of Canaan was conditional. So, he warned Israel:

 

“But be assured today that the Lord your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly… After the Lord your God has driven them out before you, do not say to yourself, “the Lord has brought me here to take possession of this land because of my righteousness.’ No, it is on account of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord is going to drive them out before you. It is not because of your righteousness or your integrity that you are going in to take possession of their land; but account of the wickedness of these nations…” (Deuteronomy 9:3-5)

 

Don’t miss this

 

Here is an extremely important point: The Canaanites were driven out of Canaan and destroyed when their cup of wickedness became full! When God’s patience with the Canaanites reached it limit, God broke His silence with them by sending His wrath upon them!

 

Israel & Babylon filled up cups

 

At the time of the Babylonian captivity, God told Israel:

 

“But you did not listen to me… and you have provoked me with what your hands have made, and you have brought harm to yourselves… Because you have not listened to my words, I will summon all the peoples of the north and my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon… and I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants and against all the surrounding nations. I will completely destroy them and make them an object of horror and scorn, and an everlasting ruin… This whole country will become a desolate wasteland, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years. But when the seventy years are fulfilled, I will punish the king of Babylon and his nation, the land of the Babylonians, for their guilt… and will make it desolate forever.” (Jeremiah 25:7-12)

 

Notice a critical point in these verses. Israel was to be destroyed for provoking God, and eventually, so was Babylon! This is proof that God deals with the heathen just as He deals with those who know Him! In God’s eyes, wickedness is wickedness. Each person, city nation or kingdom has a cup and when it becomes full – God breaks His silence.

 

One more brief point about ancient Babylon must be made. When the mysterious handwriting appeared on the palace wall, Belshazzar, king of Babylon, suspected that the God of heaven was sending the sword against him and He summoned the prophet Daniel to interpret the handwriting. Before interpreting the handwriting on the wall, Daniel recounted the divine judgments the Most High had sent upon his arrogant grandfather, Nebuchadnezzar. Then Daniel said: 

 

“But you his son, O Belshazzar, have not humbled yourself, though you knew all this. Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven… But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways…  This is what these words mean:

Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end. Tekel: You have been weighted on the scales and found wanting.  Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.” (Daniel 5:22-28)

 

New Testament examples

 

The full cup principle is also found in the New Testament. Paul warned the sexually immoral Romans:

 

“… You are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God will give to each person according to what he has done… But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.” (Romans 2:5,6,8)

 

Paul clearly understood why the wrath of God was coming. He told the believers in Colosse, “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthy nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.” (Colossians 3:5,6)

 

On the other side of the coin, Paul encouraged the believers in Thessalonica to be patient in their suffering until the enemies of Jesus had filled up their cup.

 

“… You suffered from your own countrymen the same things those churches (in Judea) suffered from the Jews, who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out.  They (the Jews) displease God and are hostile to all men in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon them at last.”

(1 Thessalonians 2:14-16)

 

When Paul wrote this epistle, he knew that the Jews had filled up their cup of sin and that they were doomed to destruction by the Romans. The anticipated destruction occurred in 70 A.D.

 

Jesus predicts wrath

 

Jesus spoke of the full cup principle in a discourse with the Pharisees. After pronouncing 7 curses upon them for their religious bigotry and hypocrisy, Jesus said: “Fill up, then, the measure of the sin of your forefathers!  You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?” (Matthew 23:32,33)

 

Again, the point is made. When a nation or individual reaches the limit of divine forbearance, God breaks his silence. His mercy with sin and sinner has a limit. Jesus concluded his denunciation of the Jews saying: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate.” (Matthew 23:37,38)

God’s four judgments

 

Israel was fully warned about the consequences of violating God’s laws at the time of the Exodus. God said: “But if you will not listen to me and carry out all these commands… then I will do this to you: I will bring upon you sudden terror, wasting diseases, and fever that will destroy your sight and drain away your life… I will break down your stubborn pride and make the sky above you like iron and the ground beneath you like bronze. Your strength will be spent in vain, because your soil will not yield its crops… I will send wild animals against you… destroy your cattle and make you so few in number that your roads will be deserted… I will bring the sword upon you to avenge the breaking of the covenant… I will ay waste the land… I will scatter you among the nations…”

(Leviticus 26:14-33)

 

Look closely at this text and see if you can find God’s four deadly judgments identified.
They are specifically mentioned. In addition, notice that they come in the form of sudden terror. This is how God breaks His silence. His judgments come with sudden terror upon nations when their cup of sin and rebellion becomes full. Paul saw that God’s wrath will suddenly break out upon the world in the last days. He says, “While people are saying, ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:3)

 

Bible history says

 

The Bible does not leave us guessing how God implements His four judgments. Notice these instances:

 

Sword: God raise up military leaders to send the sword wherever He wants it. From Jeremiah 25:9 we learn that God sent his servant, King Nebuchadnezzar, against Jerusalem. Nebuchadnezzar did not know that he was a servant of the Most High God at the time! Nevertheless, God used the pagan king to accomplish the destruction of Jerusalem. In the same way, God overthrew the empire of Babylon through Darius, another unwitting servant of God. (Daniel 5:30,31) The Bible also says that King Cyrus was a servant of God. See Ezra 1:1; Isaiah 44:28, 25:1. It is especially interesting to know what God is able to accomplish His plans without forcing His will upon any individual! The point is that God raises up military leaders to take the sword wherever He wants, even though generals choose to do what they want to do! And if human agency is not available, the Lord will send His own angels as necessary. The largest known number of people killed by the death angel was 185,000 soldiers of Sennacherib’s army, although this number may be less than the first-born killed in Egypt at the time of the Exodus. See Isaiah 37:36 and Exodus 11.

 

Famine: God sends famine at times and in places to accomplish His purposes. In Genesis 41, God sent seven years of famine to Egypt and in the process, removed Joseph from prison and put him on the throne. This amazing promotion for Joseph opened the way for the descendants of Abraham to move down into Egypt! See Genesis 15:12-16.

 

In 2 Samuel 21:1, the Bible says, “During the reign of David, there was a famine for three successive years; so David sought the face of the Lord. The Lord said, ‘It is account of Saul and his blood-stained house; it is because he put the Gibeonites to death.’”  Clearly, the three-year famine came as a direct result of Saul’s disobedience.

 

In 2 Kings 8:1 we learn of another seven-year famine sent by the Lord, “Now Elisha had said to the woman whose son he restored to life, ‘Go away with your family and stay awhile wherever you can, because the Lord has decreed a famine in the land that will last seven years.’” Perhaps one of the best-known famines recorded in the Bible happened during the days of Elijah and King Ahab. Notice what James says, “Elijah was a man like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.” (James 5:17,18) The combined evils of violence, idolatry and sexual immorality have reached epic proportions and God has not only noticed, He is about to rise up in response!

 

Plague: Plagues can come in numerous forms. We think of the bubonic plague or of cholera as a plague, but the word plague means anything troublesome or afflicting. God sent several plagues upon Pharaoh and Egypt to impress them that He wanted His people set free. These plagues included frogs, blood-water, gnats, flies, boils, hail, locusts and darkness, etc. See Exodus 7-10.l The Lord killed 10 of the 12 spies with a plague for giving a bad report about the Promised Land! See Numbers 14:37 More than 14,700 people died of a plague in the wilderness rebellion stated by Korah. See Numbers 16:49. On one occasion, God sent a plague that killed 24,000 people for sexual immorality! See Numbers 25:9 On another occasion, God sent a plague upon Israel and killed 70,000 people because King David disobeyed the Lord and took a census.

(1 Chronicles 21:14-16) The point here is that God does send plagues upon people to kill them when they continually insist on disobeying His commands.

 

Wild beasts: Wild beasts, like plagues, come in many forms. Peter described them saying,  “I looked into it (the sheet) and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles, and birds of the air.” (Acts 11:6) The creatures of the earth are wild beasts. So how does God use them? The Lord clearly warmed Jeremiah how wild beasts would be used to accomplish His deadly purpose upon Israel. He said, ‘I will send four of my destroyers against them (Israel),’ declared the Lord, ‘the sword to kill and the dogs to drag away and the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy.’”

(Jeremiah 15:3) The Bible also says that God sent poisonous vipers into the camp of Israel when they complained against Him. See Numbers 21. One family of “wild beasts” that they be very influential in the future is insects. Killer bees, fleas, fire ants, swarms of locusts and other tiny creatures can cause unbelievable damage!  It is important to notice that God promised Israel that He would restrain the wild beasts if they would repent of their idolatry and love and obey Him. God said, “I will make a covenant of peace with them (Israel) and rid the land of wild beasts so that they may live in the desert and sleep in the forests in safety.” (Ezekiel 34:25)

 

 

A review of the fourth seal

 

“When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, ‘Come! ‘I looked. And there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by wild beasts of the earth.” (Revelation 6:7,8)

 

The evidence is clear and abundant all through the Bible that God has used His four judgments to deal with people and nations of the world when their cup of sin becomes full. The Bible is also clear that He uses these judgments when sin and rebellion reach a point where love and mercy have no redeeming effect. See Ezekiel 5. So, the judgments described in the fourth seal are literal and are to be taken seriously. As a matter of fact, the 25% figure mentioned in the fourth seal should be taken very seriously. If the population of earth is 7 billion today, then 25% of that number is 1.75 billion casualties! We can only begin to conceptualize the excessiveness of our sins by considering such extensive destruction. 

 

How will the four judgments come?

 

Revelation’s story explains how the four judgments of the fourth seal will be suddenly released. Without getting lost in all the prophetic parts, here’s a brief explanation.

 

Right now, God has special angels holding back the four winds of His judgments. When the 144,000 servant-prophets are prepared to proclaim the everlasting gospel, the angels will let go of the four winds. These winds symbolize the forthcoming destruction of His four judgments-sword, famine, plague and wild beasts.

 

144,000 evangelists, located around the earth, will explain the purpose of God’s judgments and they will proclaim a comprehensive message of salvation that includes the imminent return of Jesus. The everlasting covenant and the terms of salvation will be seen in their glorious beauty. Of course, the powerful proclamation of the gospel will anger the devil and those who love evil. Because of the severity of the judgments, world leaders will unite to appease God. Eventually, the devil himself will appear during the fifth trumpet claiming to be God in the flesh. To make his control of earth complete, the devil will demand that his followers destroy the God-sent evangelists and those who follow them. The net effect is that everyone on earth will be caught in a great tribulation.

 

Seven trumpets

 

Here are some important things to know. The judgments mentioned in the fourth seal will begin suddenly according to 1 Thessalonians 5:3. The four judgments of the fourth seal will come in the form of seven trumpets. In other words, sword, famine, plague and wild beasts are implemented by the seven trumpets. The reason that the four judgments are symbolized as trumpets is that God’s judgments will be used as harbingers of the arrival of His holy Son, Jesus Christ.

The seven trumpets of Revelation are designed to awaken the people of earth that Jesus is coming. The first trumpet will be a great meteoric shower of burning hail. The burning hail will ignite enormous, unquenchable fires. The second and third trumpets will be horrific asteroid impacts, and the fourth trumpet may be great bands of darkness upon our globe, caused by millions of tons of ejecta, ash and debris put into the atmosphere by volcanoes. The fifth trumpet marks the appearing of the devil claiming to be God. The sixth trumpet is a global war that the devil incites to take control of all the earth. And the seventh trumpet marks the end of God’s salvation.

 

I believe the fourth seal will open sometime in 2011 or 2012. Before the sudden destruction of the first trumpet begins, there will be an enormous global earthquake. Then, a short time later, the first trumpet will sound and showers of fiery meteors will rain down upon earth. This destruction may come from the effect of earth passing through some asteroid belt or a meteor field. This shower of burning rocks will ignite large, unmanageable fires all around the world. Thousands of square miles of rain forest and crops will be burned up. Food will become scarce overnight and global famine will immediately follow. The famine will affect every person living on earth.

 

Listen up

 

The 144,000 of Revelation 7 are servants to whom God will give special powers. See Luke 9 for an example of this. The Two Witnesses of Revelation are God’s Law and the Holy Spirit. The 144,000 servants will be the human vehicles through whom the Two Witnesses will communicate with every person. Like Mo0ses and Elijah of old, the 144,000 will perform many miracles to convince people of their message is sent from God. They will explain what God is dong and why. But, just as Pharaoh hardened his heart when Moses stood before him, many in our day will harden their hearts against God’s messengers. On the other hand, many will turn from their rebellion and be saved when they hear the gospel call from God’s Word.

 

The Holy Spirit will attempt to win every heart and signs and wonders will add credibility to the truth of God’s Word. Revelation 11:6 clearly say that the Two Witnesses (the personification of the 144,000) will perform miracles, even striking the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want! BUT, (and this is an emphatic but) don’t be fooled by miracles and false prophets. Jesus clearly said, “For false Christ’s and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect-if that were possible.” (Matthew 24:24)

 

The devil is coming

 

The Bible predicts that Satan will physically appear as a dazzling being upon the earth before the second coming of Jesus. See 2 Corinthians 11:14 and 2 Thessalonians 2:1-9. Satan is the man of lawlessness. When he appears on earth, he will make up his own laws. His laws will have no regard for human rights or human dignity. He will claim that he is God and to demonstrate his divinity, he will call fire down from heaven in full view of men. (Revelation 13:13) The appearance of Satan will not come as a surprise to those understanding Revelation, for the appearing of the devil occurs during the 5th trumpet. See Revelation 9:1-12.

 

 

After Satan has appeared on earth for a few months, he will unite all his followers from the nations. When he has gained enough influence, he will move deftly and swiftly by motivating his followers to take the sword and gain control of earth. This war, described in Revelation 9, is the 6th trumpet. This world war will be like the civil war that consumed America last century, except it will involve every nation.

 

Satan’s followers intend to dominate their respective nations on behalf of one they believe to be God! Millions upon millions will die as a result of this war. (Some translations of the Bible say the number of soldiers mentioned in Revelation 9:16 will be 200,000,000. Currently, the entire world has less than 8 million troops in uniform. Examine this horrible war in Revelation 9.) As a result of the carnage, wild animals will rapidly multiply. They will literally feed upon the dead.

 

Seven last plagues

 

But wait, there’s more. The seven last plagues follow the seven first plagues (seven trumpets) and the seven last plagues also include the same four judgments! These judgments are described in Revelation 16 and are reserved for those who shall receive the mark of the beast. The first judgment is a plague of sores that falls upon those receiving the mark of the beast. The second, third and fourth plagues deplete what food supplies remain.

 

Famine will be pandemic. The fifth plague marks the unmasking of Satan. God will fully expose to the world that they have been following the devil himself. The sixth plague is Satan’s final attempt to destroy the people of God. And the seventh plague is a great hailstorm of fire that attends the second coming of Jesus.

 

When Jesus appears during the seventh and final judgment, the Bible says, “Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations…” (Revelation 19:15) In other words, the nations will mourn at the appearing of Jesus, for He overthrows them by His Word and the splendor of His glory. “At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all nations of the earth will mourn…” (Matthew 24:30) A lake of blazing fire will consume Babylon and those not thrown into the lake of fire will be slain by the brightness of Christ’s coming. Birds will gorge themselves on the flesh of the slain. See 2 Thessalonians 2:8 and Revelation 19:21.

 

Summary

 

The destruction of 25% of the earth (1.75 billion people) is beyond our comprehension. And today, it seems like a horrible fairy tale. But, be assured of two things. First, God does nothing without purpose and cause. Secondly, the Bible points out that God’s judgments come in two phases. The first phase is redemptive. That is, God awakens people so that they may realize the sinfulness of their course – and indeed, many will repent and be saved. The second phase of God’s judgments is utter destruction. God will send His wrath, without mercy, upon all those who receive the mark of the beast. Understand that God is justified in these actions. These things will be examined in later chapters.

 

If you already know Jesus as your Savior, you have no reason to be afraid. The Psalmist wrote, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me…” (Psalm 23:4) If you haven’t given yourself to Jesus, surrender your life now by obeying the teachings of Jesus and living by faith in His promises. Be willing and obedient to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. Covenant with God to bring your life in harmony with His wonderful truths and God will take care of you. Earth’s cup of iniquity is almost full. God is about to break His silence. The end of this old earth is here and the beginning of the New Earth lies just around the corner.
