Revelation 17: Babylon and the Kingdom of the Antichrist

The Woman Judgment Coming to the Great Harlot Revelation 17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters One of the seven angels from the previous chapter tells John of the coming judgment to the great whore. On the forehead of the great whore are the words, “Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth” (verse 5).  The great whore is Babylon.  The angel shows the judgment coming to Babylon. This chapter and the following chapter  describe in detail this coming judgment. In Revelation 16, the previous chapter, we also read of the destruction of Babylon. This destruction occurred in the seventh bowl judgment. The angel, who poured out the seventh bowl judgment, may be the same angel we see foretelling of the coming judgment to Babylon. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his ...

Revelation 16: Seven Bowls, Armageddon and Jesus Returns as a Thief

The First Six Bowls of Wrath The prior chapter in Revelation, chapter 15, introduces the coming bowls of God’s wrath. A final sign appears in heaven. Those believers who overcame the Antichrist stand in heaven on a sea of glass and sing praises to God. The temple in heaven is opened and the seven angels come out from the temple ready to pour out their seven bowls of God’s wrath. Chapter 16 speaks to these seven judgments delivered by the seven angels. First Bowl of God’s Wrath: Grievous Sores on those with the Mark of the Beast Revelation 16:1-2 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. 16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image. The first bowl of God’s wrath is poured out on the earth. Those who have received the Mark of the Beast or worshiped his image are given loathsome and malignant sores ...

Revelation 15: The Third Sign, Seven Plagues and Heaven Opened

Third Sign in Heaven The Wrath of God is Finished Revelation 15:1 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. The third sign in heaven signals the finishing of God’s wrath. The details for the third sign are not provided as with the first two signs. The first sign is found in Revelation 12:1-2 and the second sign is in Revelation 12:3-6.  We do know the third sign is great and marvelous. Seven angels come out from the temple in heaven (Revelation 15:6) with seven plagues. The timing of the third sign is either just prior to or just following the end of the Great Tribulation.  We are told these are the last of the plagues. God’s wrath is executed through the seven plagues. The plagues are poured out on the earth, the sun, and air. Is This the Only Time We See God’s Wrath? In Revelation God’s wrath is executed four times: The Day of the Lord as described in the following: The sixth seal (Revelation 6:17) His Second Coming (Revelation 19:11-19) On those who worship the beast, his ...
