The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were scorched by the fierce heat, and they cursed the name of God who had power over these plagues. They did not repent and give Him glory (Revelation 16:8-10).
No matter what God did, they did not repent and give Him glory. We need to beware of our conduct because God will not tolerate sin in any generation, no matter who commits it! God is a holy God, He requires obedience. If we refuse to obey His commands, we cannot expect Him to let us go unpunished. He has waited so long to give us time to repent and no matter what He says, some of us just won’t believe Him, or take any notice. He sent the prophets they killed them all, they asked for a King, they got the kings, the priest were selected, they also have come and gone. Last of all, He sent His Son, He too they have murdered like a criminal. Now He sends His wrath, but still some go around as if He does not exist. When are we going to obey God, repent of our sins and realise it is us who is at fault and not Him? They curse what they don’t know and insult what they don’t understand, instead of admitting their wrong doing and return to God for forgiveness.
He is doing all this to enable sinners to return to Him, but no! They are not looking, they see, but don’t want to know, they hear, but turn their backs to Him in disobedience, listening to lies instead. Everyone is going about their business as if there’s no tomorrow, but God is in control. He is fulling everything He warned would happened, but we are so busy in our little world, we too are being deceived. Look up child of God, He is asking us to repent of our sins because they are many, return to Him and give Him glory by the way we live. Do not be too relaxed in what the world is doing that we cannot see what’s happening above. God will empty this earth of sickness, disease, death and wickedness. What else will God have to do to get our attention?
The meek will inherit the earth; when wickedness are cut off, we will see it (Psalm 37:8-10, 34). The time will come when God will not ask no one to repent anymore, time will be up, and there will be no chance to turn because the sins has bought Him to jealously and He will destroy it. He will put an end to everyone who refuses to obey Him. I encourage you to return to God now, repent and trust His judgement, He will never let you down. He will be your God, and you will be His child, He will be with you to the end of the age. No harm will come to you, if you continue in obedience to Him. Just like He protected Lot in Sodom, He will protect you too. Keep faithful to God and your end will be glorious when Jesus returns. God bless you.
