This week’s sermon title is “Sad Reality.” When the sixth seal is opened a sad reality is exposed. Down through history God has called men and nations to repentance and faith. Many have refused, insisting on going their own way and doing their own thing. Their own thing inevitably leads to God’s judgment. That judgment is described in our text from Isaiah and, then, Revelation uses much the same imagery. It is calamitous. It reflects the sad reality we memorized in Psalm 2:10-12. Kings of the earth should do homage to the Son that He not become angry and they perish in the way. For His wrath may soon be kindled.
