My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Revelation 15

The end of wrath is nigh!

Summary:
There were seven angels to give the seven final plagues before God was done. There was a sea of fire, by which those who had remained faithful sang of the great things God had done.

The seven angels came out from the temple and were given a bowl of wrath each. Whilst the bowls were being poured, no-one could enter the temple due to God's glory.

Key verse:
4. For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.

My thoughts:
I love how in this verse it doesn't just say that God has been righteous, but also implies that God will be seen to be righteous. Sometimes we might feel like we're being told that God is righteous, but we're secretly not sure, but I think we can be confident that when all is said and done that it will be clear that God is good. We can't expect to completely understand it at all times.

I think it's important to notice that God's wrath is finite, but his love is infinite. There is a definite end to his judgement. It is an unfortunate but necessary aberration from what God wants to be doing.
