The time has come!

Scripture reading for December 14th: Revelation 11, Psalm 99, Ecclesiastes 1

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.””

As events in heaven are revealed to John to write down, John watches as the seventh angel blows his trumpet and announce the eternal reign of the King Jesus Christ. There is immediate worship around the throne as the elders fall on their faces proclaiming this new beginning. They decree that the nations of earth were full of rage against God’s King but God’s wrath against this rebellion would bring judgment and eternal loss. God’s great love would also bring reward to His servants, prophets and saints. They would see the destruction and punishment of the wicked and those who destroyed the earth and God’s people. All vanity would be judged and Jesus Christ exalted over all nations forever and ever.

Psalm 99:1-2 “The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble! He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake! The Lord is great in Zion; He is exalted over all the peoples!”

Prayer: Father God, I exalt You and worship You in holy fear and awe at Your plan for justice and Jesus’ rule on the earth! I am thankful that You, alone, know the hearts of all and judge with equity through Your Son Jesus Christ. I look forward to this seventh and last trumpet and the eternal reign of my King! Use me today to share His love and mercy with those bent on destroying the earth and his people.

Ecclesiastes 1:14-15 “I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind. What is crooked cannot be made straight and what is lacking cannot be counted.”
