They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!” Revelation 6:16
People always try to avoid the extreme anger of someone else. When a person is extremely angry, anything can happen.
This fear of someone can often be seen in little children with a parent. There have been parents who show extreme wrath upon a child that has done something wrong. The parent may yell, scream, and strike the child in his anger against something done wrong. The child grows up in extreme fear of the parent and is always trying to hide from him.
Various people, even as adults have also shown extreme wrath against others because of something that was done wrong to them. These people are also avoided. When a person is going on a shooting rampage in anger in a public place, people are running and hiding anywhere they can to keep from being hit.
John sees a vision of a coming time when many people will be running and trying to hide from God. Jesus will come back to judge this world. He will unleash His anger and wrath against sin and those who refuse to follow Him. At that time, the world will realize how great God is and how powerful He is.
The God who created the heavens and the earth will be coming with a vengeance and wrath to destroy those against Him. Those in this world, who do not serve Him, will have a reason to be fearful. He will be greater and more powerful than any person that has ever been angry before. Yet, there will be no place for them to hide.
To avoid His wrath, all a person must do is follow Jesus and love God with all their heart, mind and soul. God must be first in the life of a person.
If you are a follower of Jesus, you will have nothing to fear from God. If you are not a follower of Jesus, you have everything to fear from God. God will have His day of vengeance.
God will only strike at those who refuse to follow His Son. Those who follow Jesus, will be protected and brought into heaven.
Are you living in a way that you will have to fear God?
Or are you living for Him?
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will live for God; that you will serve God with all of your life; and that you will not have to fear God’s wrath against you.
