After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated from his glory” (Revelation 18:1).
Although people deny the authority of the Lord and do not acknowledge that He holds all power, yet the time will come when all will see the coming of the Lord. The amazing thing is that although people see, they still will not believe. Even standing before the Lord face to face, they will curse Him. But you have seen the glory of the Lord and beheld the goodness of His gift of grace. Long for the day of the revelation of the Lord upon all the earth.
Lord Jesus, come quickly. This world has been a mess for a long time. For with You it is a few days, for a thousand years is as a day. How long will You put up with a stiff-necked people? Lord, I am guilty of being one of those stiff-necked people, so thank You for putting up with me. Time is in Your hands. You have given me grace and mercy. Lead me, O Lord, to humbly walk with You always.
Lord Jesus, we all need saving. When we think we need it the least is probably when we need it the most. Guide me in the Salvation You have prepared for me. Help me to understand that I am in Your hands, and it is not the other way round. Lift me up and keep me in Your presence and let nothing on this earth bring me down. Into Your hands I commend my spirit and pray that I am faithful with all that You have entrusted to me. Amen.
