SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE DEVOTIONAL 20TH SEPTEMBER 2022

Topic: God’s Judgement

Opening Prayer: Oh Lord, fill me with the power of the Holy Ghost as I study your word.

Scripture: Revelations 16:1‐21

Question(s) for Reflection
• Is there any promise for me to believe or hope for?
• Is there any warning for me to heed?

God has waited for so long and given His people several opportunities to repent but that has not taken place. Finally, His judgment is released through the seven angels. The sins and the punishments are similar. Notice the similarities between these bowls of judgment and the plagues in Egypt (Exodus 7‐12).

The Lord is judging the gods and idols that people have worshipped over the years. The judgment affects elements in creation because of human wickedness. These judgments are intended to bring people to repentance to avoid eternal destruction. On the contrary, notice the reaction of the inhabitants in vs.9&11. This is unfortunate. Failure to repent ends in eternal damnation.

We need to pray for hearts that listen and act when God speaks. In vs.13‐16 we see the trinity of evil: Satan (the dragon) and his agents, the beast and the false prophet. They all marshal their forces to oppose God in preparation for the last great battle between good and evil. Since this day is near, John emphasizes the need for watchfulness on the part of the followers of Christ (v.15).

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
• Meditate on v.15 and turn your thoughts into prayer.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with
Psalms 9:18; Daniel 11; Job 6
