Scripture reading for December 11th: Revelation 9, Psalm 121-22, Proverbs 31
Key Scriptures: Revelation 9:15-16, 20-21 “So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand. . . .The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
John was shown the horror of the woes coming on the earth as the seven angels sounded their trumpets announcing the plagues of judgment upon the wicked. There was a specific day, month, hour and year designated by God. One third of the earth’s population would be killed by these judgments! The astonishing truth was that those who were not killed refused to repent of their idolatry and the worship of demons and their great immorality and breaking of God’s commands. Sin has consequences–a price higher than we should want to pay.
Faith Confession: In light of this prophetic Word, I choose to respect and honor God and His Word by praying for the unsaved and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit enables and directs.
