ANOTHER OF GOD’S IMPENDING PUNISHMENT THAT AWAITS THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH IS THE POURING OF THE THIRD BOWL OF GOD’S WRATH. THIS TIME, RIVERS AND SPRINGS OF WATER WILL TURN INTO BLOOD.
GOD WILL GIVE THEM WHAT THEY DESERVE FOR KILLING HIS PEOPLE AND HIS PROPHETS; BLOOD FOR THEM TO DRINK.
(Rev 16:4) Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and the springs of water, and they turned into blood.
(Rev 16:5) I heard the angel in charge of the waters say, “The judgments you have made are just, O Holy One, you who are and who were!
(Rev 16:6) They poured out the blood of God’s people and of the prophets, and so you have given them blood to drink. They are getting what they deserve!”
(Rev 16:7) Then I heard a voice from the altar saying, “Lord God Almighty! True and just indeed are your judgments!”
HOWEVER, BEFORE THAT EVENT HAPPENS, THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST, THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN HIS NAME, THEY WILL BE TAKEN OUT OF THIS WORLD AND WILL BE WITH HIM FOREVER.
(1Thes 4:16-18) “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.”
THE WORD OF GOD MADE IT SO CLEAR THAT THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST ARE NOT DESTINED FOR GOD’S WRATH!
(1Th 5:9-10) “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”
BUT WHOEVER DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE NAME OF GOD’S ONE AND ONLY SON, STANDS CONDEMNED ALREADY.
(John 3:18) “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”
(Heb 4:7b) “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.”
