Lent Season April 01

Going Beyond - Revelation
Carri Lynne Pratt
7 Bowls of God's Wrath
Today's Reading: Revelation 15:1-8 

"And one of the four living creatures gave to the 
seven angels seven golden bowls
full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever." 
Revelation 15:7
Sir Isaac Newton's third law of physics: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The bigger the push, the bigger the pushback.
The first law of thermodynamics is: Matter can be neither created nor destroyed, it remains constant.
Why do I bring up laws of physics when we are discussing end times? Good question. Because in our limited understanding of why this horrific event must occur we merely need to look to physical laws we can understand.  
God's wrath is the pushback to the collection of all sins by all people on the Earth who ever lived. (imagine that!) The fact that there is a Heaven and Hell is in direct correlation to the fact that matter is not created nor destroyed - we go somewhere.
The bigger question is why hasn't it happened already? The answer to that one is God is being mericiful, as Jesus said, "So it is not the will of My Father who is in heaven that  one of these little ones should perish." Matthew 18:14
Every person ever created has the opportunity to escape the coming wrath. It is a simple choice to place Jesus as Lord of one's life to forgive our sins. Unfortunately many people see themselves as good rather than sinful and don't recognize that every reaction has an equal and opposite reaction.
Reflection: We should look forward to the coming of Christ and to His Kingdom on Earth, but think if this were to happen today, how many people do you know that would experience the wrath of God? Would you escape?
