SIH TOTT ICONRev 8:5 KJV

(5)  And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

 

 

In the preceding verses, the angel uses his censer to offer incense with the saint’s prayers for vengeance to God.

In the verse we have before us today, we see the angel then responds by filling the censer with fire and casting it onto the earth.  This is the announcement that God’s vengeance is about to fall against the lost, the powers of darkness, the false religions, and the political powers of this world.   God is ready to answer the prayers of His people.

 

Folks, we should never forget that our God is a God of justice.  Yes, He is a loving God.  Yes, He is a merciful and gracious God.  Yes, He is a God of hope and great promise.  But He is also a just God who gives assurance that He will avenge the abuse of His people at His coming….

2Th 1:5-10 KJV  – “Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:  Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;  When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.”

 

Folks, we can rest assured that all things will be made right.  We do not have to take matters in our own hands.  We do not have to work vengeance on those who mistreat us.  On the contrary, we should be in prayer for those who oppose us and love those who hate us…

Luk 6:27-28 KJV – “But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,  Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.”

 

God, by His grace, has shown to us what awaits our persecutors if they do not turn to Him, trusting Him for their salvation.  They are blinded to His truths and not understand of the path upon which they travel.

Folks, let’s be in prayer for our enemies knowing that the Lord’s will be done in their lives and He will make all things right when He comes again!

May we all think on these things today and find encouragement and comfort for our hearts!
