“It is Done!”
Scripture reading for December 20th: Micah 7, Nahum 1-3, Revelation 16
Key Scriptures: Revelation 16:17-19 “The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as there has never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of His wrath.”
John sees the seventh angel pour out the final bowl of the wrath of God into the atmosphere. From heaven, a loud voice announced the judgment as “It is done!” On earth, an earthquake was triggered that shook the earth and its cities and peoples more than any other before it. God especially remembered Babylon and made her drink and drain the cup of His wrath.
Micah 7:13 “But the earth will be desolate because of its inhabitants, for the fruit of their deeds.”
Nahum 2:10 “Desolate! Desolation and ruin! Hearts melt and knees tremble; anguish is in all loins; all faces grow pale!”
Prayer: Lord, help me to remember that Your final judgment will come to all on the earth and to the earth itself. Keep me from entanglement in the corrupt system of earthly government and business represented by Babylon. Amen.
