Revelation 8

Click For Today’s Audio


And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”

– Revelation 8:13

As with many of the images presented in Revelation, this is a frightening picture of the wrath of God that will one day be revealed from heaven against all unrighteousness. We can do our best to interpret the trumpet judgments of Revelation 8, but our best guesses are still mere speculations. The clearest interpretation just may be the best; the simple explanation that the wrath of God is devastating. The clearest application may be the best too; avoid the devastating affects of the wrath of God.

Today’s goal

Experience (personally) and extend to others the shelter from God’s wrath, in and through Jesus Christ.
