A Moment of Mercy (15 of 40)
Series: God's Special Book of Blessing
Ernest L. Easley
As we continue making our way through GOD'S SPECIAL BOOK OF BLESSING, we come this morning to chapter 7. So take God's word and turn to Revelation 7.
Now in chapter 6, we saw the removal of the first six seals from the title-deed of earth. Every time a seal will be removed, it will unleashed another judgment upon this Christ-rejecting world. As another seal falls to the ground, the intensity of the judgments will increase.
When this takes place on earth, the church won't be here. The born-again, the saved, the Jesus followers will have already been raptured and the dead in Christ will have been resurrected. And after the church is gone, tribulation on earth will begin.
Jesus warned us about that in Matthew 24:21, ''For there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.''
By the way, do you know what is preventing this world today from self-destructing? The church of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of God! Jesus said that we are the salt of the earth. And salt not only adds flavor, it preserves; it prevents decay.
Do you remember what held back the fire from falling on Sodom? Lot was there! Righteous Lot!
Do you remember what held back the flood from coming all those years? Noah was there! But once Lot was removed, God's judgment of fire fell on Sodom and once Noah was removed, the waters of God's judgment begin to fall.
And when God removes His church, His judgment will fall once and for all upon planet earth.
So in chapter 6, we find the description of tribulation and judgment upon every Christ rejecter after the church is gone.
The first six seals have been removed from the scroll, the title-deed to the earth. We saw last time that with the removal of the fifth and sixth seal, there are going to be some people saved, but it will cost them their lives.
