The Cup of Iniquity and The Cup of Wrath

Last night this writer was pondering how bad this world is getting and how quickly it is getting worse when the Lord impressed the following thought onto this writer's spirit.  This is what is happening-

It is a matter of the Lord's righteousness and His justice that before the hell on earth that will be the tribulation and the cup of His wrath is poured out, the cup of this world's iniquities must be filled first.  Here is an example of what we are talking about:

Gen 15:16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.

The point we really want to see here is that as this world and its wickedness and sin appears to explode (and it is), this is not something that is going un-noticed by the Most High God.  There is a "fullness" to the iniquity of this world that equates to the fullness of the cup of wrath that will be poured out on them.  To get a sense of the balance (and Divine justice of it all) consider this.  Look at the writings of the prophets and the book of Revelation for an idea of how bad this earth and its inhabitants are going to be pummeled:

Rev 6:7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Rev 8:6And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves 
to sound.

7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, 
and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, 
and all green grass was burnt up.

8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning 
with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 
9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died
; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, 
burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and 
upon the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called 
Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and
 many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten,
 and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the 
third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it,
 and the night likewise.

13And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, 
saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth 
by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which 
are yet to sound!

This ^^^ punishment is quite severe.  How can punishment this severe be justified (justice)?  It is justified by an equal measure of iniquity (what we are seeing around us day in and day out, and getting worse by the day.

Here is a way to visualize it

Notice toward the right side of the curve it gets more and more vertical.  What is happening is the acceleration of wickedness is filling up the cup faster and faster leading to a shortening of time left before the cup is full and begins to overflow, leading to this (the cup of wrath being poured out):

... It has been poured full strength into God's cup of wrath. ... he will also drink the
wine of God's wrath, which is mixed full strength in the cup of His anger. ...

... Rise up, Jerusalem, you who have drunk from the hand of the LORD the cup of his

... For the LORD says, "If even those who did not deserve to drink from the cup of my

... And finally, the king of Babylon himself drank from the cup of the LORD's anger. ...

So...we can begin to understand the big picture of what is going on in our world.  As we watch gay pride parades and sexual deviancy of every kind,  corruption in every level of government around the world, 99% of big business who cater to the anti-Christ globalist agenda, persecution of everything Christian etc, it is all being measured and stored up.  

This serves a purpose of giving us an indication that time is indeed short.  As the measure of this world's wickedness goes vertical, the cup fill up faster bringing us closer to the retribution that is the cup of the Lord's wrath that will 100% certainly be poured out on this world as guaranteed by the Word of God.  All of this also brings into focus another promise from the Word of God:

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

^^ This is merciful as is this last days eye opening revelation we are seeing every day as one after one more revelations come out displaying for all of us how corrupt and wicked this world has become.  Trump (in part) was brought in 1. as a wrecking ball and 2. as a illumination flare to show us without any doubt whatsoever how this world is setting itself up against the Most High God and His people.

Psalm 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves
, and the rulers take counsel together
against the LORD, and against his anointed
3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast
away their cords from us.
4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:
the Lord shall have them in derision.
5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath
, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

grace and peace
