Merited or Unmerited Anger?
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Rev. 14:9-11
Why does God get so angry with those who worship the beast? Why does God take such drastic measures, as tormenting those people with fire and brimstone? I am glad that you asked. God gets angry with those who worship the beast, because He has given every person, many, many opportunities, to know the truth of the matter.
God has sent His Word – the Bible; He has sent preachers, teachers, missionaries, Christian neighbors, friends, strangers, books, the Internet, bloggers, etc. to make every person aware of the coming disaster and the seriousness of it. Therefore, each person must make a choice, as to who will be his or her master. If we yield our wills to Christ, He will lead us into the paths of righteousness and prepare our hearts for this last crisis, which is to come upon the earth. However, if we turn a deaf ear, we will surely be deceived and will suffer the wrath associated with those who will worship the beast. Which side will you select?
Next time, we shall discuss the benefits of choosing Christ’s side. Until then, keep reading and watch the following video. Click the link below.
