“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5)
Adam and Eve sinned, and their son Cain became a murderer. The dark mire of sin spread through time until every imagination of the thoughts of his heart (the heart of man) was only evil continually. A heart that is void of truth will be filled with error, deception, evil. What is the possibility of evil in the heart that seeks NOT after the heart of GOD? Through the pages of recorded history, we have seen the horrific possibilities of the evil heart. In the days of Noah, God judged the world of men and saved only one family to begin the human race again. And for more than 2300 years, following the flood the sins of man grew and grew until the time of Christ. The Savior, the Son of God who came into the world to save sinners by bearing the WRATH of GOD for the sins of man. It is only through the Lord Jesus Christ that sinners can find forgiveness and full redemption. But now there is yet a day of wrath to come.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;” (Romans 1:18)
Sin has a price: “Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay. –”. ― Ravi Zaccharias.
But the Wrath of God is more than the consequences of our sin as it is also a coming day of judgement for the whole world. “And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.” (1Thessalonians 1:10) Those who have put their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ shall be spared the day of Wrath to come. But those left behind shall seek death to flee the wrath, but even death will flee them until the time is at hand.
“And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.” (Revelation 16:1)
Why will there be another day of the Wrath of God upon the World? Because God in HIS mercy, HIS lovingkindness, HIS love sent HIS only begotten Son into the world to save the souls of men, but they have rejected him and blasphemed that wonderful, most precious name of God.
“Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.” (Isaiah 13:13)
The world is full of fools today who deny God, who deny the truth of the Word of God. They mock God by their rebellious life and use the earth as a stage to display their sinfulness before a Holy God. Their day of rebellion is swiftly moving toward a final conclusion. Are you prepared to flee the Wrath to Come? If not, please come to personal faith in Jesus Christ today. Cry out to HIM for mercy and forgiveness for HIS mercies are new each and every morning. There is a day of WRATH that is yet to come upon the inhabitants of the earth and the gathering storm clouds are rising on the horizon. Do not wait for a better time. Call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
