Are We Currently Under God’s Judgment?

Today I was reading one of a friend’s friend of mine on Facebook, and he was suggesting that certain weather patterns and calamities around the worlds were in some respect God’s judgment. Well, that may be true however we should be slow to suggest such things, as it could be throwing around God’s name in vain and misrepresenting Him.

If you are interested in reading God’s judgment in the prophecy of the future during the seven-year tribulation, look no further than the Book of Revelation. For instance;

Rev 8: 6-13 (NASB)

6 And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them.
7 The first sounded, and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
8 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, 9 and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.
10 The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. 11 The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.
12 The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.
13 Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in midheaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”

This prophecy gets even more horrible!

Rev 9: 5-6 (NASB)

5 And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man. 6 And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.

Days full of torment, wanting to commit suicide but not being able to. The Book of Revelation should make you fall to your knees.

God Bless
