Key Verse
“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down and shall be found no more at all” (Revelation 18:21).

TEXT — Revelations 18:21-24
Many live as if they would not account for their actions and conduct. Driven by selfish interests, they act as if they no longer have a conscience. They defy constituted authority; they trample on the rights of other people; and most times, they get away with their actions. However, it will not always be so, as a day of reckoning will surely come.

On judgment day, there will be no hiding place for anyone, irrespective of class and status, material well-being and popular acclaim. Once judgment is pronounced as in the case of Babylon, there would be no escape. The angel of God was commanded to execute judgment on Babylon, in spite of her greatness. In one hour, her greatness came to nothing with great burning that had never been seen before. She was thereafter cast into the sea to be found no more. In complete oblivion did Babylon disappear as God avenged the blood of the prophets, saints and those that were slain upon the earth.

Today, there are many people who violate the rights of the weak and vulnerable in the world. They persecute and kill Christians for their faith. They have pleasure in the destruction of lives and properties; causing pains and sorrows, displacing people and making them homeless. Others enjoy kidnapping for ransom, ritual killings and trading in human body parts. The day is coming when the Lord will avenge every iniquity and injustice.

God’s judgment will be different from that of men. No one can influence or bribe his way through it. A day when all wrongs will be justly punished is near. Therefore, if you are still living in sin, you must quickly turn away from your sinful practices and plead with God for pardon. Only then can you escape the judgment and avert God’s vengeance that will certainly come on sinners and backsliders.

Thought for the day
A day of vengeance for every evil is near.
in one year
EZEKIEL 36 – 38
