Chapters 15 and 16 describe the seven bowls of wrath. Ooh. This is chilling. Sometimes it’s actually difficult to believe that the scenes described are going to play out before our eyes. It’s mind-blowing that there will be such defiance and rebellion against God! But if you take a good look around you, you’ll see that rebellion and defiance even today. The wicked Nimrod is a “type” of “antichrist”. It’s nice to know the signs to look for and it’s good to have Scripture as a life manual.
I am thankful that Dr. Missler reminds us often to concentrate more on the person of Christ when we study the “pseudo Christ”. I’m reminded that a similar concept was my “take away” from the “Experiencing God” study by Henry Blackaby: the counterfeit division of the Canadian Mounties thoroughly studies authentic currency so that they will not be fooled when a fake crosses their path. They know the truth so well that the fake doesn’t fool them. I want to know my Lord that well!
Homework for next time: Read chapters 17 & 18. Read Isaiah 13 & 14, Jeremiah 50 & 51.
