- Then I heard a mighty voice from the temple sanctuary saying to the seven angels, Go and empty out on the earth the seven vials (bowls) of God’s wrath and indignation. Amp.
- Boils on people with mark of the beast.
- Turned the sea to blood.
- Turned rivers to blood.
- Sun scorching humanity.
- Throne of Beast cast into darkness.
- Made road for the kings.
- Voices, thunders, lightnings, and a great earthquake, so mighty and so great!
Each vial that is poured out is another step closer to the end. The final earthquake is said that nothing like it has ever occurred since men dwelt on the earth, so severe and far reaching was that earthquake. I used to hear them talk about the big one coming. This one will be bigger than that. All mountains and islands are gone. Everything will be leveled. He is making a statement.
Life will be so hard because of the heat and poisoned water. The boils will be so painful. These are all voices from the throne room. All will know this is the end. Many will repent. Many will grow bitter. But God’s elect will be rejoicing because time is winding down. The Lord is coming!
Revelation 16:15 Lo, I am going to come like a thief! Blessed, happy, to be envied is he who stays awake (alert) and who guards his clothes so that he may not be naked and have the shame of being seen exposed. Amp.
This is talking spiritually clothed by the Holy Spirit. We can only come before the throne of grace by the blood of Jesus. Jesus is the only way. No other way can we approach the Father. If the blood is not present, they will be exposed like Adam and Eve were in the garden after they ate from the tree they were told not to eat from. God had to clothe them by a sacrifice of animals for their skins. They had never seen death until then.
God put Moses in the cleft and told Him, “There is a place beside me (Jesus), and I will put you in the cleft of the rock while I pass by. No one shall see Me and live.” Ex. 33:19-23
If we are not clothed with the blood of Jesus, it will be known to all. The truth will come out and all hypocrisy will be exposed.
2 Corinthians 5:2-3 Here indeed, in this present abode, body we sigh and groan inwardly, because we yearn to be clothed over – to put on our celestial body like a garment, to be fitted out – with our heavenly dwelling;
3. So that by putting it on we may not be found naked – without a body. Amp.
