Revelation 15

“Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed” (15:4). One day, when God no longer restrains His wrath, His “righteous acts” and unlimited power will be revealed to all, and everyone will bow to Him.  He delays this day of public judgment so that more people will choose Him now, voluntarily, accepting His loving mercy poured out on the cross (2 Peter 3:9).  

Jesus won our salvation not by force, but by going to the cross; in the same way, we “conquer” by being faithful witnesses, taking up our own crosses, until He returns  (15:2).
