He physically revealed Himself to the children of Israel and thereby established the fact there is truly God. Moses was the prophet at that time: "There is a place near me where you may stand on a rock. When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and you will see my back; but my face must not be seen," said God to Moses. This same Israel was expecting the Messiah as promised by God (see Isaiah 9:6-7; Daniel 2:44).
The Messiah is to save the world from their sin, destroy sin and bring perfection to man through the coming Kingdom of Heaven. There is so much, especially fire, involved in this destruction of sin that John the Baptist said to some of the crowd coming out to be baptized by him, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance"(Luke 3:7-8.) HAVE YOU BEEN BAPTIZED?
"They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath."—1 Thessalonians 1:10. This wrath will start with the living in this our age who do not have the Holy Spirit of God and continue with the living during the Age of the Messiah when "the LORD will bring on them the plague He inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles." It will afterward be extended to all that have died in sin since the creation of man. How is this possible? They will be resurrected after the Age of the Messiah only to be devoured by raw fire from heaven. Then finally, they will face the eternal Lake of Fire which is prepared for Satan. DO YOU HAVE THE HOLY SPIRIT?
As part of the plagues that will befall those whose names are not written in the book of life, "the sun will be given power to scorch men with fire. They will be seared by the intense heat and will curse the name of God." The closest imagination of this description is an acid-bath experience. This will happen in our time during the reign of the Son of Perdition (Satan incarnate) who has various shocking destructive activities to unleash on men all over the world ("...He will cause astounding devastation."—Daniel 8:24). This scorching of men with fire is part of the seven (7) plagues from God to be executed at that time. Dear reader this is going to be an unheard-of horrifying experience, we need to flee from this wrath every hour of our life from now.
You will understand the seriousness of this if you can understand why the temple in heaven will be filled with smoke so that "no-one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed" (Revelation 15:8). Can you imagine an eyeball that gets heated up until it pops out like popcorn? Have you destroyed all your sinful activities one by one? Do you need help to do that? Talk to me now!
Even during the millennial reign of Christ, which commences after the Son of Perdition is destroyed, certain plagues will be visited "on nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles" (Zechariah 14:18). "The LORD will strike Egypt with a plague; He will strike them and heal them. They will turn to the LORD, and He will heal them."—Isaiah 19:22. IS THERE HOLINESS REIGNING IN YOUR DESIRES NOW?
