I am still fascinated by the simple things – one of my favourite Christmas movies to watch each year is the original, black and white, Scrooge with the visits of the three spirits.
The first angel was concerned and tasked with proclaiming the eternal gospel to those who live on earth, to every nation and tribe and tongue and people. Many feel that there is little left to do and many have given up on this call. May we look for God to give us opportunities to tell. The basics – fear God, give Him glory, understand that the hour of judgement is coming and make time to worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and the fountains of water.
The second angel called out all those who took the road of drink, lust and passions of the flesh – they are fallen and destroyed because compared to the holiness of those who walk with God, they are impure.
Lastly, the declaration to those who worshiped any other god other than the one and only God. So much in love with their god that they were marked by it. They would experience the wrath of God, His anger and they will experience torment by fire and sulphur and they have no rest day or night.
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Walking with Jesus is accepting the call.
