Read the New Testament in a year, one chapter a day, five days a week

Day 256/260: Read Revelation 18

How powerful is the Almighty God? “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!” God has the power to destroy great cities of men.

How severe is His judgment? “The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.” When God executes His judgment, it is complete.

How swift was the fall? “For in one hour she is made desolate.” Once the decision was made to carry out His wrath, the city did not stand a chance.

Do not trust in earthly riches. “Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy” (1 Timothy 6:17).

Do not trust in tomorrow. “For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away” (James 4:14).

Trust in God.

Memory (Read aloud 5-10 times)

Revelation 22:18-19. For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Pray

Pray for greater trust in God and His will.
