Winepress of Wrath

posted by jfletcher

In the book of Revelation, Jesus Christ is poised to “tread the winepress” of His wrath, in defeating His enemies.

As He stepped out of the tomb on Resurrection morning, I wonder what He was thinking. Oddly enough, a few years ago, archaeologists uncovered an ancient winepress only meters from the tomb (at “Gordon’s Calvary). Jesus would have walked over it on His way out of the tomb.

The book of Revelation has always been a bugaboo for many; liberal scholars in the Church mock those of us who believe it is future history.

For a whole host of reasons, I certainly believe it is future history—rapidly approaching.
