“I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plagues—last, because with them God’s wrath is completed.” Revelation 15:1 (NIV)
God has a purpose for earth’s final events and even in His wrath against the wicked He has a merciful time line. Like the last seven of the ten plagues upon Egypt, the true church will be spared. These last plagues will have a precision and purpose in countering the Antichrist’s oppression against God’s people. Like all divine judgment, they are neither reckless nor negligent but are holy and just.
There is good news is this apocalyptic announcement because the angel says that with these plaques the work of God’s judgment is complete. No more wrath means the cosmic conflict is over, never again will sin abuse and mare God’s creation.
Let’s pray today for confidence and rejoicing in the deliverance of our blessed hope.
