Memory Verse
“Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water” (Revelation 14:7).
 
Words of Wisdom
The message of God’s righteousness and judgment in Rev 14:7 is being set in a context that is suitable for the hearers (“every nation, tribe, tongue, and people”) to relate to. This angel’s gospel is not the offer of everlasting life to those who believe in Jesus Christ, but instead is the explanation of what is happening on earth, and how people should respond (if those living during the Tribulation understand the reason behind the judgments they are witnessing, they might be more inclined to believe in Jesus Christ for everlasting life). So the message this first angel proclaims is that disaster and death has come on the world because “the hour of God’s judgment has come.” The proper response to such a truth is that people should “fear God and give glory to Him,” that is, stand in awe and acknowledge His hand in these devastating events and His right as God to act in this manner. If they won’t acknowledge the source of these judgments, they won’t believe in Him either.
