Qualities of His Presence

Reading in Revelation 15:5-8, we are being prepared for the seven Bowl Judgments that God will execute upon antichrist and his followers; fulfilling the prophecies and promises of His Word. The angels are prepared for their work, clothed with pure and white linen, their breasts girded with golden girdles, representing the holiness, and righteousness, and excellence. They are armed with the wrath of God against His enemies.

John sees one of the four living creatures give the seven Angels the seven golden bowls of wrath (v. 7). When this is done smoke fills the Temple which expresses the very nature of God. There is a cloud of glory that John expresses in this vision which is a visible manifestation of God’s presence. It would be impossible for anyone to enter the Temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels are completed (v. 8).

Even in dark or difficult times, God is present. We can rest assured that He will ultimately defeat His enemies so this day, let us lay out our concerns in prayer. Whether big or small and with great boldness, ask for help to execute His purpose.

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
