The Wrath of the Lamb

Let no person deceive us with vain words upon this dreadful subject. People have arisen in these latter days, who profess to deny the eternity of future punishment, and repeat the devil's old argument, that we "shall not surely die" (Gen. 3:4). Let none of their reasonings move us, however plausible they may sound. Let us stand fast in the old paths. The God of love and mercy, is also a God of justice. He will surely requite. The flood in Noah's day, and the burning of Sodom, were meant to show us what He will one day do. No lips have ever spoken so clearly about hell as those of Christ Himself. Hardened sinners will find out, to their cost, that there is such a thing as the "wrath of the Lamb" (Rev. 6:16-17).

  1. Amen! There will be a judgement day(but it wasn't on May 21st!! ;))and we will all be held accountable. Those words are both frightening and comforting, aren't they? Praise God that we've been robed in Christ's righteousness.

  2. Yes Kathryn! How wonderful its is to be robed in Christs righteousness so that we may stand sinless and justified before the Almighty God and King.

  3. Awesome...and frightening.
    Makes me so thankful for His grace and mercy.
    Great quote...

  4. Seeing all the tornadoes and floods going on, hopefully will open the eyes of some of the lost. He's trying to warn us. He's coming soon and woe to those left behind. Wonderful post!


Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
