The book of Revelation describes the last days as a time when the “wrath of God” is poured upon the whole earth. With earthquakes, meteors, wars, famines, and plagues—the world will reel with cosmic disasters. And its drama will be such that “unless the days are shortened no flesh would be saved.” There is a reason I’m taking a moment to mention the “wrath of God” during the Tribulation: If you are not careful somebody will present a persuasive argument to convince you Revelation doesn’t belong in the Bible. They will tempt you to believe that a God of love would never issue vengeance against His enemies. In fact, some theologians have suggested Revelation shouldn’t be part of Scripture! But there is something for the skeptics to consider: There are 404 verses in Revelation and half those verses—202—can trace a reference back to an Old Testament passage! When you examine Revelation you find that its content correlates with: Exodus, 1 Chronicles, Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Zephaniah, Zechariah, and Malachi. It’s difficult to eliminate Revelation from the Bible when its contents are embedded throughout the Old Testament. There is no question that unbelievers have much to fear if they are forced to face the “wrath of God” during the Tribulation. But the Good News is this: “Everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved.” Jesus Christ, who died on the Cross, will forgive all your sins and give you eternal life in Heaven. Believe on Him today!
