Revelation 16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

Amazing-they even recognize that their pains and their sores come from God but instead of repenting they blaspheme. They refuse to repent. It isn’t that God is mean and they have no chance-it is that they want no chance and will not take it if given to them.

This is so hard for me to believe. Why won’t they repent? Why won’t they say, sorry for the sins I have committed against you, please have mercy on me?

Are they so hard? Do they so reject the truth? They mock and curse the God of Heaven instead of admitting their sin.

Please do not be like them. He is calling you and dealing with you to recognize your need of Him and His grace and salvation. He extends to you today the opportunity to be saved.

Your hurts may be just the thing to bring you to Him if you will come. Will you?
