Who can stand?
Scripture reading for December 6th: Hosea 3-6, Revelation 6
Key Scriptures: Revelation 6:15-16 “Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of Their wrath has come, and who can stand?”
John is describing the opening of the seven seals on the scroll that was taken by the Lamb. With the opening of each seal in heaven, earth was shaken by heavenly messengers and the power of the words from the One on the Throne. Those on earth, from the kings to the slaves, cried out to the rocks and mountains for covering as they sensed the coming judgment and wrath of God.
Hosea 6:5-6 “Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of My mouth, and My judgment goes forth as the light. For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.”
Prayer: Lord, religion can’t save on the day of wrath. I thank You for Your steadfast love through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Through Him alone we can know You and stand in the day of wrath. Amen.
