Reward for Those Who Overcome

Reading in Revelation 15:1-4, John records the vision of seven angels with the seven last plagues that will take place at the end of the Tribulation. The angels would fulfill the wrath of God with the seven plagues resulting in total destruction on earth. There would be judgment for those who followed the antichrist but reward for His servants.

In this vision, John sees what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire along with those who had been victorious over the beast (v. 2).  Fire is one of the most destructive forces because it totally consumes and annihilates everything. God’s Day of Judgment will come on this world and in the meantime, we should make sure we are doing our best to warn others and relay the message of God’s way of escape through His Son.

Let us remember that these plagues will affect God too. He created this amazing world and some day it will have to be destroyed. He also had to give up His only Son for the sins of the world. Because of the blood of the Lamb, the servants, saints, and those who glorify His name will overcome.

Let us all be a part of the overcomers and sing what is identified as the song of Moses or song of the Lamb near His throne. For the exodus from Egypt is similar to the eternal deliverance from the beast.

There is power in God, value in His favor, and glory in His holiness. Let us be patient because things will get better. Tomorrow is only a day away and our tomorrow’s will get better by doing what is right and keeping our eye on the reward.
