Spurgeon's Verse Expositions of the Bible

Revelation 6



Other Authors
Verses 12-17

Revelation 6:12-16. And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood, and the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

Think of the contrast between this awful cry and the sentence we read just now: “Then did they spit in his face.” “Mountains and rocks, fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne.” Think, too, of the contrast of which we were reminded in our opening hymn, —

“While sinners in despair shall call,

‘Rocks’ hide us; mountains, on us fall!’

The saints, ascending from the tomb,

Shall joyful sing, ‘The Lord is come!’”

Revelation 6:17. For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Let us read further on in the same Book. (See Revelation 19:11-16)

This exposition consisted of readings from Matthew 26:57-68. Revelation 6:12-17, Revelation 19:11-16, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 21:1.
