The appointed time!
Scripture reading for December 15th: Job 4-7, Psalm 99, Revelation 11
Key Scriptures: Revelation 11:15-18 “Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever.” And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, “We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty, Who is and Who was, for You have taken Your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but Your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding Your servants, the prophets and saints, and those Who fear Your Name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.”
John recorded the seven angels blowing the seven trumpets that followed the time of silence in heaven. There were loud voices declaring the victory of God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the beginning of their eternal reign over all creation. The elders around the throne fell on their faces and worshiped God for Who He is and was and will be and for the time of judgment coming for the dead and reward for the saints. God is just and will justly judge all and destroy those who reject Jesus Christ and destroy the earth. Those who honor Him will be fully rewarded for their faith.
Psalm 99:4-5 “The King in His might loves justice. You have established equity; you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob. Exalt the Lord our God; worship at His footstool! Holy is He!”
Faith confession and prayer: Lord Jesus, I worship You as the eternal King of kings. I look forward to the appointed time of the judgment and reward! You are just, righteous and holy and my confidence is in Your Word! Help me to share Your Word enabling all to find reward at judgment day.
Job 4:6-7 “Is not your fear of God your confidence, and the integrity of your ways your hope? Remember: who that was innocent ever perished? Or where were the upright cut off?”
