Four Examples, Two Ends
There are many examples in the Bible of times during which a nation turned against God and surrendered to sin. And there are different ways in which God handled the situation.
Today we look at four such scenarios. Three of them took place in the Old Testament times. In one of those, the people repented and were spared. In two of those, they did not and were destroyed. The fourth example is the focus of today's message, and it involves you.

The Fourth Example, The First Group
In chapter 15 of Revelation, we see one group of people, standing on a sea of glass singing the song of Moses and of the Lamb. These are they who have overcome the beast and would not deny Jesus by taking his mark. In chapter 16, we see another group of people, those who did not condition themselves by making those small daily decisions to spend time seeking after God and living lives of integrity and uprightness. These have passed the point of no return, and even though God is giving out the biggest wakeup calls mankind has ever known, they refuse to repent and instead curse God.
Before you assert that you would never do such a thing, remember the words of Peter, "Though everyone else should deny you, I will never deny you!" And just a few hours later, he denied Jesus not once, not twice, but three times.
If you are not making your small decisions for Christ, don't fool yourself into thinking you'll make the big ones for him. If you will not deny your flesh long enough to pray and read the Bible, or to tell the truth even when it's inconvenient to do so, then you're only kidding yourself if you think you will sacrifice your family and your own life for Jesus.
The time to make that big decision is NOW, in the seemingly small things. And if you make those small, daily decisions for Jesus, you will be in chapter 15, singing songs of victory for all eternity long.
