God will nourish and preserve you in your pilgrimage through this wilderness of sin. He nourishes your souls when you read and hear the preaching of his Word and when you partake of the Lord’s Supper. These are your weapons against Satan’s raging flood of wicked lies and deceptions through false teachers and others who would destroy the church.
Our text concerns the sixth seal, in which demonic forces assemble at the place called Armageddon. Two great forces, Satanic forces and Godâ€™s holy people, meet here for the final battle on the great day of God. And like the persecuted Christians in the first century, we who are Christâ€™s soldiers are warned to watch and always be prepared for this God-appointed battle.
