|Revelation 16:11 |
11 And people blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pain and their sores, but they did not repent of their deeds.1
1 people blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pain and their sores, but they did not repent of their deeds. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, who has power over these plagues; but they did not repent and give him glory. These troubles will not come as a surprise to the people of the earth. God's prophets will preach the true gospel and announce the troubles coming to the entire earth, which prophecies will be accompanied by a demonstration of power that will be clearly seen and understood. But man has devolved to such a drunken, selfish, pleasure-filled lifestyle in the 21st Century that the vast majority of people will be unwilling to give up their "freedom" of slavery to sin. Instead they will bemoan the unfairness of God, calling him evil and cruel, calling his prophets evil, and cursing God. The whole earth, (with few exceptions), will openly hate and curse God. From the Word of the Lord within: "The selfish human nature is being exposed and brought out once for all." Human nature will be exposed to all men as demonic, hating God; just as Roman 8:7 has told us before: Because the carnal mind is enmity against God. For it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be.
Thus the Lord will have an indelible record of the final result of man's "freedom" to decide good and evil for himself, (as the devil originally tempted Eve). For future worlds, man's "freedom" that led to world-wide hate of God, will be available for study as reminders where that supposed "freedom" ends up.
