“And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of judgment is come” (Revelation 14:6-7).
Time is now short for the earth-dwellers, for no longer is it the day of judgment but now the hour of judgment. In just a little while those who dwell on earth will face God’s wrath. God’s mercy and compassion fail not. Rebellious creatures are given an extreme measure from God to repent. The eternal gospel during the days of tribulation is flying high with the voice of an angel.
“Fear God, and give glory to him.” Fear God ought to be the conviction that would fall upon every person who dwells upon the earth. And this fear of God ought to lead to the conversion of every person who would no longer take the glory but give the glory to Almighty God.
We do not know how much longer it will before the God of glory returns to judge. So we ought to be ready by fearing God and giving glory to Him. Too many fear other things and other people while we need only to fear God and honor His Son by elevating Him in our daily walk.
