Our God Reigns, Revelation 11:15-19

Revelation 11:15-19

Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.” Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple. There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail. (Revelation 11:15-19)

The Church Triumphant should not be The Church Arrogant (Proverbs 12:18). Restoration, not amputation, is at the heart of ministering to others caught in any transgression.

Grace doesn’t wink at sin. But it surely doesn’t cast aside the Christian whose struggling as a sinner. Walking out on a wayward believer isn’t Christianity, but risking the rough water for another’s restoration – walking with them… IS. Three qualities the Apostle Paul directs our obedience to in restoring those who’ve been ambushed by sin:

a. Gentleness or meekness
b. Humility
c. Love
