Rebellion

A scenario that occurs quite regularly throughout Revelation is a picture of rebellion. There are people so against God they don’t want to face him at all. When the world is literally falling all around them, they call out for the boulders to crush them rather than face God.

Even when God is revealing himself full force and the open rebellion of humanity is crashing down all around, there is no repentance. It is the picture of full out rebellion. It is the picture of what has gone wrong at the core of the Fall: we just want to be our own gods.

The only problem with that scenario is that there is only one God, and his glory will not be shared by another.

Revelation is a sober read.
