Revelation 6:16





16 And [kai] said [lego] to the mountains [oros] and [kai] rocks, [petra] Fall [pipto] on [epi] us, [hemas] and [kai] hide [krupto] us [hemas] from [apo] the face [prosopon] of him that sitteth [kathemai] on [epi] the throne, [thronos] and [kai] from [apo] the wrath [orge] of the Lamb: [arnion]   KJV-Interlinear



16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb;    NASB



Ever since Satan rebelled against God, all of creation has been groaning in the midst of travail, Rom. 8:22, which simply means to be under the obligation to work, in agony, in torment, under extreme pressure, burdened without relief.


When God created the universe, He created it in complete perfection, Isa. 45:18, with the purpose of being inhabited throughout.Satan’s rebellion sent everything into a tailspin, including planet earth.


When God created man, He placed him in a perfect garden environment.  Man sinned and that caused the perfection of the garden to be closed off, and brought burdens in all forms into the human race, as well as planet earth.


Mans only way out of this mess, was the promise of a savior, and Christ’s eventual victory over sin and death, neither of which God caused.


To look away from God is to perpetuate the travail or burden that all of creation is forced to endure.To look to God, through Christ, means that there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel and a destiny separated away from the burdens of old.


When one is under extreme pressure, even facing death, which is it best to look to for help, the world which has no help, or to God who has the solution?


After the attack on the twin towers of September 11, 2001, many stories came out, indicating bravery and faith.Of those who survived and were in or near the collapsing buildings, came stories of prayer and hope, even of a quick end to what seemed to be their last dying breath.  There were many stories of people thinking, ‘Please Lord, take me quick.’


We can look to history and see many similar stories from people who have been under great pressure and in extreme circumstances, and their hope was always to God.  And whether their situation was in the concentration camps of world war two, or from some other dramatic situation, to them, their situation would have seemed dire and hopeless.  But still their thoughts were of God and hope.


In the Tribulation, we have already studied the many difficulties that people will face, and thus far, know that due to mans failing plans, one-fourth of the population of the world will die.That is a lot of people.  And though we have not studied it yet, still another fourth of the world will die from other judgments, making the death total, one-half of the total population of the world, before the Second Advent.  


And yet people will still not figure it all out, that their way is the wrong way and that Christ is their only answer.


And rather than turning to Christ, they continue to look to human solutions, and face constant death and terror from all aspects of life.Judgment after judgment will pound them, and their terror will make them run in fear, from their only answer.


At some point in peoples lives, they will admit that God is more powerful, but they will wish and hope for their own death, rather than being left in the hands of His judgment.  They recognize the truth, but still make the wrong decision.


Anyone can easily believe in Christ, in an instant, and solve their eternal destiny.


But, arrogance and indifference toward doctrine, blind people so badly, that they are unable to bring themselves to believe in Christ, even when they recognize His power.


Jesus Christ in the one who sits on the throne in heaven.The lamb is the work of Christ on the Cross.  It is through this means only, that people can be saved.


And as this chapter ends, and as these Tribulation highlights come to an end, people in the Tribulation, unbelievers most of them, will finally recognize where the real power and control is, but instead of turning to Christ for help, they will run and hide and wish that the world, their first hope, will save them.


Interestingly, unbelievers or negative peoples, will look to that which cannot save, for salvation (their death), from Him who can save.  As though dying will serve to isolate one from Gods wrath, and end the terror.And again, interestingly enough, the second death will actually isolate the unbeliever from God, in the Lake of Fire, but it will not bring relief from terror, but only increase it dramatically, and make things worse, forever.  This is the quintessence of confusion, delusion, and detachment from reality.


But then, it applies to everyone throughout history, who rejects truth, and not just to those in the Tribulation.
