The End Times 14


1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. 4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. 5 And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened: 6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. 7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever. 8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled. Revelation 15:1-8 (KJV)

We’re almost done with the study on Revelation, where we will resume our usual apologetics schedule.

This is it. This is the last of the judgments. They are going to be severe. I know I have emphasized how bad the seven seals are. And I spent some time describing the absolute horror of the seven trumpets. But the Seven Viials will inspire horror and death. Each one is a signal to the world that survives it, “Time’s up! Repent, for the Lord is coming soon!!!”

This is the beginning of the worship of God by all creation. Everyone recognizes that we are now within three years of Christ’s return by this point. The kingdom of God is about to be a literal kingdom, in just a short time. Heaven becomes so aware of the holiness of God at this point, that it is like those times that men become aware of just who God is. The Glory of God is revealed to his servants at this time. THe Seven angels come forth… and all heaven is silent as the magnificent spectacle unfolds.

The population of the earth is about to be cut to less than a billion people soon.

Seminary graduate with a Ba. in Theology/Pastoral Studies, Happily married, Independent Baptist. I can't keep silent about what I see going on in Christianity any longer! Apostasy reigns around us, churches are sliding into worldiness, a whitewashed Gospel is preached everywhere... "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) So, I'm speaking out. ...Why aren't you???
