Pastor Barry's "Chapter & Verse" Day 252
September 9, 2017: Revelation 14:6; 252/260(I); ‘When Angels Preach’
Revelation 14:6 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth — to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people
Again and again, we are reminded that it is the Revelation of Jesus Christ. When I first became Born Again, anything that was said about Revelation, was always in reference to the antichrist and how powerful he will be. There is no denying that the forces of the antichrist will be persecuting those who have not accepted the mark of the beast and many who become Born Again during the tribulation will be martyred. The grace of the Lord will be with them. When Stephen was stoned in the Book of Acts, He saw Jesus in heaven and was greatly comforted as they pelted him with stones. The Bible tells us that he forgave his murderers and fell asleep. We have seen the many ways the Lord Jesus Christ will be moving, doing all He can to save those Jews and gentiles, as they go through the tribulation. In this chapter we see that three mighty angels will be circling the globe preaching and warning. This first angel will be preaching the gospel, declaring for all to hear God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. The second angel will be warning everyone to reject the antichrist’s religious system. The third angel is warning the whole world not to take the mark of the beast. He warns them that if they do take the mark, they are doomed to hell. Think of this, huge angels, majestic in beauty and power declaring for all to hear the gospel and to reject everything the antichrist stands for. The supernatural forces of evil cannot match the supernatural forces of good. The Lord heads off the devil inspired plans of the antichrist over and over. Jesus Christ is Lord, He alone will reign on the earth.
