Read & Reflect
- What can I learn about God’s mercy from the limitations of power and duration placed on the various destructive acts of judgment? How have I responded to God’s forbearance, kindness and mercy (cf. Romans 2:4)?
- These verses reveal there have been destructive fallen angels, or demons, bound at Euphrates (the river from which Israel’s enemies traditionally invaded), which are released at a specified time. What implication does this have on my view of life and history?
- What does the fact that these verses note mankind did not repent reveal about God’s desire in the midst of judgment? What does it reveal about man?
