Psalm 68:17 - "The 'Chariots of God' are twenty thousand, even thousands of Angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place."
What a beautiful verse of Scripture!! Think of Christ standing in the midst of thousands of 'Chariots' and thousands of angels. Picture Him arriving in Jerusalem surrounded by such a heavenly host, as He takes His throne to rule over all the earth as KING OF KINGS. (Zechariah 6:12-13 and 14:9,16) What a glorious, spectacular event!!!!
Isaiah 66:15 - "For, behold, the LORD will come with 'Fire', and with His 'Chariots' like a 'Whirlwind', to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with 'Flames of Fire'."
Isaiah 66:15 is another Scripture concerning the Lord's 'Chariots'. Christ shall come with 'Fire' and with His 'Chariots' like a 'Whirlwind', to pour forth His anger and rebuke upon UNREPENTANT mankind (Revelation 9:20-21 16:9,11) and that, with 'Flaming' fury. God's Justice will be applied with Holiness and Righteousness. The Coming of the Lord draws near and as Judge, He stands before the door. (James 5:8-9) God's Word declares that His Day of Wrath shall come, and come, it shall!! (Revelation 6:17) Who shall be able to stand?
Christ is full of pity and mercy, (James 5:11) but make no mistake, He continually calls mankind to repent. 2 Peter 3:9 says "The Lord .... is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (Revelation 2:5, 16, 21, 22 and 3:3, 19)
If you doubt that God can be a God of Wrath concerning unrepentance - read these verses:
Wrath of the Lamb - Revelation 6:16 11:18 16:1 19:15
Day of the Lord comes with Wrath - Isaiah 13:9
Break them with a Rod of Iron - Psalm 2:9
Day of Wrath - Job 21:30 Proverbs 11:4 Zephaniah 1:15 Romans 2:5
Will you raise your arms in praise and fall on your knees to worship Christ when He comes and stands among the 'Chariots of God' and angels, or will you be one of those who will try to run and find a place to hide?
WAKE UP CALL - THE FIRE OF GOD IS COMING!!
Isaiah 66:15 - "For, behold, the Lord will come with 'Fire', and with His 'Chariots' like a 'Whirlwind', to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with 'Flames of Fire'."
2 Thessalonians 1:7,8 - "......... when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels," "In 'Flaming Fire' taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:"
Nahum 1:5,6 - "The mountains quake at Him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at His presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein". "Who can stand before His indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of His anger? His fury is poured out like 'Fire', and the rocks are thrown down by him."
Revelation 6:17 - "For the great day of His wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?"
2 Peter 3:10 - "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."
2 Peter 3:11 - "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,"
2 Peter 3:12 - "Looking for and hasting unto the Coming of the Day of God, wherein the heavens being on 'Fire' shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?"

2 Peter 3:14 - "Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless."
WHO IS SINNING? ALL OF MANKIND.
THE WHOLE WORLD IS STEEPED IN SIN, INCLUDING AMERICA!!
Romans 1:18 - "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness,"
Sin is mounting, mankind is doing evil in the eyes of the Lord.
Yes, America is steeped in sin, but finger pointing at America doesn't hide the sins of the rest of the world. World! America! Wake up, the 'Fire of God' is coming.
The Bible was written for all of mankind, regardless of the country lived in. It says man is sinning in the eyes of God and God's day of wrath to stamp out sin is fast approaching. The above verses apply to all mankind.
SIN IS SIN.
Please Read: 2 Timothy 3:1-5 Romans 1:19-31 Jude
THE CALL TO REPENTANCE IS TO ALL MANKIND.
Luke 13:3 - "I tell you, Nay. But, except ye REPENT, ye shall all likewise perish."
Acts 17:30 - "But now (God) commandeth all men everywhere to REPENT,"
Mark 6:12 - "And they went out, and preached that men should REPENT."
MUCH OF MANKIND NEVER WILL REPENT.
The following verses from Revelation and Jeremiah are a good description of unrepentant mankind; past, present and future.
Revelation 9:20 - "And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:"
Revelation 9:21 - "Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts."
Revelation 16:9 - " .... and they repented not to give Him glory."
Revelation 16:11 - "And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds."
Jeremiah 8:6 - ".... No man repented of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? ...."
Do you think these sins and this lack of repentance are confined to America. No, of course not. But America is certainly included.
ARE YOU SEEKING GOD?
Psalm 42:1-2 "As the deer panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after Thee, Oh God." "My soul thirsteth for God, for the Living God; when shall I come and appear before God?"
Are you thirsting after God in your soul? Are you drinking in His Word and dwelling in His Presence? Are you ready for your appearance before God Almighty?
THERE IS HOPE.
Romans 8:1 - "There is, therefore, now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."
TO THOSE IN CHRIST.
1 Peter 4:7 - "But the end of all things is at hand; be ye, therefore, soberminded, and watch unto prayer."
God tells us the end of all things is at hand. Whoever you are or whatever country you live in, keep a clear mind, stay alert, keep an attitude of prayer and live a godly life.
SPECIAL CALL TO THE CHURCH TO REPENT.
Christ's call to His Church to repent is given in Revelation 2:5,16, 21 and Revelation 3:3,19. Where is His Church? Just in America? No! All over the world.
