The Seven Bowls (Revelation 15:1-16:21)

Brian So, November 12, 2017
Part of the The Returning King (Revelation) series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Main points:
1. The Character of God’s justice.
2. The Certainty of God’s justice.
3. The Call to repentance and holy living.
On the cross, Jesus took the cup of the fury of God’s wrath so that we may have the cup of God’s blessing. On the cross, Jesus said, “it is finished!” Jesus bore the punishment of our sins so that on the Day of the Final Judgment, when Jesus shall cry again with a loud voice from his throne “it is done,” and when God’s wrath shall be poured out in all its fullness, we who believe in Christ shall be spared.

Application Questions:
1. Knowing that God is a holy and just judge, that he listens to us, that we will always get a fair hearing, what is it that you want to bring before him today? And when God decides however he wants to act or not act, will you submit to his judgment and trust that he has his reasons and wisdom because he does all things right and every single judgment from him is just?
2. How does the thought “there is absolutely no off-shore tax haven for God’s judgment” comfort you?
3. Is there any resentment or bitterness or self-pity or anger or jealousy you need to bring before God today and ask for forgiveness and change?
4. What is the difference between Kreacher’s obedience and Dobby’s obedience in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince? What motivates us to repent and give glory to God?
5. What are some practical ways you may imitate Christ in loving your neighbours, pursuing justice, and displaying moral righteousness in whatever situation that God has put you in today?
