The Wrath of God & The Depravity of Humanity in Revelation 6:1-17
As we continue through Revelation this morning, we have come to one of the key doctrines of the Bible, the Doctrine of the wrath of God. The wrath of God is part of the absolute justice of God.
No sin can go unpunished with God’s absolute holiness and justice. So, even though there may be little or no evident response from God for most of the sins being poured out by fallen and sinful humans, God’s justice has kept track of every sin ever sinned against the Infinite, All-Knowing God Almighty.
But a moment is coming when the river of humanity’s sins, piling up behind the dam of God’s patience will reach the limit, and the righteous, infinite, just wrath of Almighty God bursts forth.
Wrath is one of God’s eight moral attributes, described in the Bible. Here is a list that we have studied as the elders and deacons of Calvary, from Grudem’s Systematic Theology:
Wrath: One of God’s Moral Attributes
The Moral Attributes of God may be described as: 1. Goodness; 2. Love; 3. Mercy (Grace, Patience); 4. Holiness; 5. Peace (or Order); 6. Righteousness (or Justice); 7. Jealousy; and 8. Wrath. The most vivid illustration of that final moral attribute is where we have arrived in Rev. 6.
God’s wrath is not only one of His attributes, this wrath He has, is one of the major doctrines in the Bible.
