One of the most interesting and perhaps sad facts about the last days is the attitude of people toward God. Despite everything that is going on the book of Revelation states that people will not repent of their sins. Revelations chapter 16 describes seven plagues that will happen and the reaction of the people to these plagues.
“And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.”
“And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.”
“And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail: for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”
The consistent trend with the above plagues shows that people recognize that God exists and that he has the power over the plagues, however they will refuse to give him glory for who he is and repent for their sins. These reactions depict the irrational minds that people will have. The most logical response to God’s wrath would be to ask for forgiveness and mercy. When I was a child and about to a whoopin (spanking) I would beg my mom for forgiveness and tell her how sorry I was. Sometimes I would not get the whoopin or it would be severely less because I was remorseful. If a child knows the correct response to deal with someone’s wrath it is truly sad that those people in the last days will not repent.
Stay Blessed and Continue Warring for Christ!
