Give Lord Glory (Revelation 14.6-8)

"Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth — to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, 'Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.' A second angel followed and said, 'Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,' which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries." (Revelation 14.6-8)✞

Individual Christian

St John ChrysostomIt is significant that this is the fiercest warning of all the dooms. As the Revelation sees it, the doom of the apostate is worst. The reason is that the Church was battling for its very existence. If it was to continue, the individual Christian must be prepared to face suffering and trial, imprisonment and death. "Fear God and give him glory" If the individual Christian yielded, the Church died. In our day, the individual Christian is still of paramount importance, but his or her function now is not usually to protect the faith by being ready to die for it, but to commend it by being diligent to live for it.✞
