The Smoke of their Torment

As I saw this photo of a scrapyard fire in Bahrain yesterday, I thought of the sobering word in Revelation 14 about the coming judgment of God against sin:

"If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God's wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name."

And I was also filled with praise for Jesus Christ, the risen Son of God who rescues all who will have Him from the wrath to come (1 Thessalonians 1:10).
