Today’s Reading | Revelation 14
Judgement Has Come
Why did God choose, according to today’s reading, to communicate the gospel through angels in the end times? The events that unfold in these last days get more amazing with each passing chapter of Revelation. In this chapter, we read about the unique way that God will communicate the gospel to people during the tribulation. According to this chapter, God will send three angels who will fly around, calling out with a loud voice to people on earth. One will be calling for people to glorify God; one will proclaim that Babylon is fallen; and one will warn people not to worship the beast or get its mark. In the midst of all the devastation that has gone on to this point, one would think that people would be ready to listen to an angel from Heaven. But, they won’t and will continue in their sin, refusing to humble themselves before God. The resulting judgment of God climaxes in the battle of Armageddon where the blood will be 4½ feet deep for 180 miles (vs20). Do you find comfort knowing that you do not have to be a part of this horror? Tragically, there are those who will reject God no matter what the consequences.
