TODAY’S TOPIC: REBELLION OVERTHROWN
TEXT: Revelation 18:9-20
KEY VERSE: “And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning” – (Revelation 18:9).
MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 12 November 2019
Babylon depicts rebellion at its peak and any system that opposes God and His righteousness. Right early, after the flood, this evil system, started to manifest when men decided against the will of God, to “make brick, and burn them thoroughly… and build [themselves] a city and a tower whose top may reach to heaven” (Genesis 11?:3?,4). It took the intervention of God to confound their language and put the evil plot to naught.
The lamentation over the destruction of Babylon in the text is three fold. First, the kings of the earth, then the merchants and the sea men also bemoaned their losses through the destruction of Babylon. But in verse 20, heaven rejoiced for the just judgment of God over her.
In the local parlance, it is said that “every day is for the thief, but one day is for the owner of the house”. Evil will not last forever. Satan who came to the Garden of Eden to pollute man and the earth will surely be judged together with all those who have aligned themselves with him and all his lawlessness.
There is no part of this planet that the evil influences of Satan will not be found – among the enlightened and the primitive people. Even in the churches, the influences of satanic works are still manifest in worldliness, suspicions, gossips, tribalism and even outright persecution among brethren! All persons who continue to live their lives without repentance and in disobedience to the word of God, like Babylon will receive His judgment.
The only way to escape the imminent judgment on all those who kick against God in rebellion like Babylon of old, is to come and bow before the Lord in total repentance and absolute surrender. Christ remains the Cornerstone and the only Hope of escape from God’s judgment. Embrace Him today and be at peace with God.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: No matter how long it may seem to take, evil will surely fall.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Ezekiel 3-5
