How to Live Today » The Wrath of Jesus

[this teaching has not yet been illustrated]

The first time Jesus came to earth, he taught, "Love your enemies" and "Do good to those who hate you." But the day of his Second Coming will be cruel with Jesus's wrath and fierce anger, and he will destroy the sinners in his hot displeasure. He will take vengeance on the wicked, for the cup of his indignation is full.

Jesus will send flies across the face of the earth, and they will take hold of the people and eat their flesh and fill their bodies with maggots. Their flesh will fall off their bones and their eyes will fall out of their sockets. Then wild beasts and birds will devour them.

The presence of Jesus will be an intense fire that melts mountains of rock as if they were wax. All things shall burn before him. And Babylon, the great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall be cast down by devouring fire. On this blessed day, all false worship shall cease.

Magnificent cities, beloved by the people, will sink into the earth entombing all their inhabitants. The breath from Jesus's lips will strike the wicked dead. He will deluge the world in fiery floods of his wrath, and the proud and rebellious will be burnt like stubble. The filthy abominations of the world will be consumed.

And the voice of Jesus shall be heard, saying, "I have brought judgment upon all people. I have trampled them in my fury, and I did tread upon them in mine anger, and their blood have I sprinkled upon my garments, and stained all my raiment; for this was the day of vengeance which was in my heart."

Satan and his angels will lose their dominion over the earth, and will be bound, unable to to tempt mankind for the next 1,000 years.

What a happy earth it will be! Lust, sensuousness, and carnality will cease! There will be no more drunkards, blasphemers, or thieves, and no one to commit whoredoms!
