The wrath of the Lamb

Revelation 6:12-17…And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

The prophetic content of the above verses found in the book of Revelation are not taking place now…but will take place in the future. The wrath of the Lamb takes place when Christ “physically” returns to Earth…a second time as promised. The wrath of the Lamb will only be ministered on Earth after the Rapture of the Church, and after the seven year Tribulation.

During the 7 year Tribulation 5 seals will be opened by God. All seals show a picture of the ministering of God’s Wrath upon the face of the Earth during the Great Tribulation. This event makes no reference to now in the Church Age. The 6th seal points to the actual “Wrath of the Lamb”.

Jesus was recognized as a gentle Lamb during His Earthly ministry. Jesus is foretold to be a Lamb of Wrath in His second coming.  Many Jewish people from the 12 Tribes of Israel that are scattered around the globe…who acknowledge Christ as the promised Messiah (at that time) will accept Christ and enter the 1000 year Kingdom on Earth. Gentiles who accept the Messiah-ship of Christ will likewise enter this same 1000 Kingdom.

Revelation 7:9-13…After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, beunto our God for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Note the Tribulation Saints…or people robed in white that accepted Christ during the Great Tribulation. These saints escape the Wrath and Judgment of an angry Christ who returns a second time with vengance upon those who don’t obey the Gospel.

2 Thessolonians 1:7-10…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: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
