You Have A Second Chance_2

…“If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. – Rev. 14:9-10 NIV

The Devotional for today is the second part of the Devotional with the same title, where the disciple John documented the vision where he saw one hundred and forty-four thousand people with the name of Jesus Christ and Jehovah written on the fore-heads. They were singing a song that only them alone could sing before Jehovah, the four spirits and the Elders, with musical accompaniment coming from divinely played trumpets – Rev. 14:1-3. They were declared qualified to be in that state because they had been found not to have defiled themselves with women as they remained virgins, they followed the Lamb wherever he went, having being purchased among men as first fruits for God and the Lamb, and remained blameless with no lie found in their mouths – Rev. 14:4-5. With the obvious fact that many people have fallen and will continue to fall short of these high standards, it will become increasingly difficult if not impossible for them to attain salvation and avoid the second death after going through the imminent judgement of Jehovah, hence the provision of a second opportunity for all mankind to avoid this second death by the Grace, which Jehovah is granting humanity through Christ Jesus – Rev. 1:4-6. This will be made available to all who comply with the not too stringent conditions of fearing, glorifying and worshipping God exclusively. Strict adherence to these standards will grant all those who comply with these standards to also have   these dual marks  on their fore-heads. Anyone who is still not willing to comply with these standards should await nothing but fearful judgement, as revealed to the disciple John.

 

In what is a follow-up to the appearance of the first angel that came with the gospel of salvation, a second angel was revealed to him whose main purpose was to announce the fall of Babylon the Great – Rev. 18:1-19:21. This is a phrase used to reference every act of man that is against the Will of Jehovah and every act of spiritual adultery and idolatry amongst men. All the desires of man that encouraged him into worshipping other gods was going to be revealed for what they are, which is vanity. The whole world was going to come to an end and all worldly attractions will disappear. Then it will become apparent to man that there is really nothing in this realm that is sufficient to stop man from worshipping Jehovah exclusively.

 

All those who have allowed themselves to be deceived into spiritual adultery and idolatry will by then be carrying the mark of the beast on their fore-heads or on their hands and should then be prepared to face the disaster that awaits them (Rev. 14:9-10), which are as follows;

  1. They will be made to drink the same wine of God’s fury which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath – Rev. 16:1-17:18.
  2. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever – Rev. 20:1-15.
  3. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

 

What a reward for refusing to heed the warning when there was still time. Jehovah is not unaware that it will be almost impossible for man to attain the very high standards that the one hundred and forty-four thousand people attained but man has no reason to not strictly observe the second set of standards which simply requires that man remain faithful to Jehovah. It is bad enough, that after all the graciousness shown to man by giving him all the comfort in the Garden of Eden, man still chose to disrespect his maker by accepting the instructions of Satan and disobeying Jehovah (Gen. 3:1-24), but it becomes worse when with all the love shown by Him in His attempts to reconcile man to Himself, man will still find it difficult to maximise the opportunity that was presented, by simply living up to his three fold request as listed above. The acquisition of all those beautiful things of this world will have no value by the time the second angel arrives, as all those will be destroyed and nothing will remain. All that will follow that action will be fearful Judgement and those who have allowed themselves to be marked by the beast for sacrificing the faithfulness to Jehovah on the altar of having these earthly possessions will have no choice than to face eternity in the company of Satan and the dragon. It will indeed be weeping and gnashing of teeth under such conditions for ever. There will be no other opportunity to avoid this fate after losing this second opportunity. Save your soul from everlasting torment by taking your chances today as tomorrow may be too late. The end is very imminent and it will come at a time that no one can determine. Do the needful today so that you too by grace can join those with the dual mark of Jehovah and Jesus Christ on their fore-heads, and together with the host of heaven, sing praises to Jehovah eternally in his Kingdom. May we be found worthy to be among them in Jesus name. Amen.
