(Chapter 16 zooms in on earth. It repeats and gives new information on the seven trumps and seals. It is only Jesus Christ that will return to earth, as part of the Godhead, for the Millennium period [age]. The full Godhead will be on earth following the Millennium in person. Those that remain in heaven during the Millennium age are those that overcame and were cleansed by the blood of the Lamb. It is those that have died in this earth age, and went to be with the Lord.
However, in chapter sixteen, while the heaven is locked, this chapter reveals what will happen on earth during the lock-out time.)
Revelation 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."
(These are the same vials of God's wrath spoken of in Revelation 15:6-8. You will notice also that though the time of chapter 15 is on the Lord's day, the first day of the Millennium age, these seven plagues are actually the seven trumpets.
This is not a war, as such, but a revival of religious order. It is going to happen in the church, and religious communities. It is to deceive and draw those out of God's Word, to the Antichrist. You will not understand what the tribulation is all about, if you do not understand that it is a spiritual warfare. The lies Satan uses will be distortions right out of the Bible.
The happenings we are about to see is all part of that cup Jesus spoke of in the Garden before His crucifixion. That cup of wrath is poured out towards all those who are deceived, and receive the Antichrist and his system.)
2 And the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore
(the disease of the ages)
upon the men who had the mark of the beast
(you can wear that mark in your forehead today, see 13:16) and upon them that worshiped his image.
(= the one world system, both religious and political)
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea;
(= the peoples of the world, see 17:15)
and it became as the blood of a dead man, and every living soul died in the sea.
(Their death is a spiritual death, because they were deceived by the false Messiah. This vile is placed into the hands of the two witnesses [see Revelation 11:6].)
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters;
(all the waters = peoples of the world as in v.3)
and they became blood.
(= spiritual death, not physical death. God will place people in positions where they will be falling for the Antichrist's deception hook, line and sinker. Men who think they know God's Word [the fountains of living waters], are instead led to the distortions of Antichrist's "fountains of waters". They will become deceived [blood]. The strong miracles, wonders, and delusions of Antichrist [Satan] will make him appear in their eyes as the Christ. They will simply worship the wrong christ, the Antichrist. He is the fake.)
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, "Thou art righteous, O Lord, who art, and wast, and shall be, because Thou hast judged thus;
(These "waters" [people] are God's elect, and all those who have the seal of God in their minds [foreheads]. They know that what is happening, is in God's plan [Bible], and they are praising God, and worshipping Him for keeping His Word.)
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets,
(see Acts 9:13. They = Kenites = the sons of Cain. See Matt.23:31-35) and Thou hast given them blood to drink, for they are worthy."
(= they deserve it.) 7 And I heard another out of the altar say, "Even so, Lord God Almighty; true and righteous are Thy judgments."
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun;
(= the Truth of God's Word)
and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
(The sun is suppose to give light. In this verse, many believe we are all going to die of intense heat. However, this is also talked about in Revelation 11:5. It is another power God gives to the two witnesses. Don't take this in the physical sense; for this is one of the ways many are going to be deceived.
The true Word of God burns as a fire, and turns many away, as they put their will over that of God's will. They close their minds to God and His Word, and that word will be their consuming fire on the day of Judgment. "God is a consuming fire," as we read about it in Hebrews 12:29.)
9 And men were scorched with great heat,
(= the Truth of God's Word)
and they blasphemed the name of God, who hath power over these plagues; and they repented not to give Him glory.
(The two witnesses are trouble makers to the world. Their words will stir such hatred in the church world, so that only God's elect and those sealed can understand what is going on. The blasphemies of God's word by these men are going to be accepted as from God. These are, such as the perversion of Sodomy being accepted in many churches today. Churches will be forced to accept many things under this new Godless one world order, that is disgusting to the true saint of God. The church will soon completely blend with the world system, and our society, and will accept abortion, sodomy, and many forms of heathen religious customs. These will all be blended and made acceptable to the Christian community in due time.
This is why it will be accepted as being from God. This, combined with false doctrine will give added support for the so called Christians to hate God's two witnesses. They do it in ignorance. Their rapture theory will convince them it's time to fly, and the Antichrist will be their pilot.)
10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness,
(= absence of truth)
and they gnawed their tongues from pain;
(You should be able to fix this instantly in your mind. This time is spoken of in II Thessalonians 2, and Daniel 9:27. It is when Satan [Antichrist] stands in the holy place in Jerusalem, claiming to be God. It's called the "Abomination of desolation" by our Lord Jesus Christ, and this seat of the beast is on mount Zion, in Jerusalem. This is also where the authority that will rule the world wide system will be. When peace finally comes to Israel, and Jerusalem, you will start to see the Kenites moving their world wide government from New York, Belgium, and Switzerland; to Jerusalem.
This is why the Middle east peace accords are so important to them. It signals the approach of this one world system's true leader [Satan] arriving.)
11 And they blasphemed the God of Heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
(It is here that the two witnesses will face Satan directly, and cause much of the earth's hardships to come to pass. Later it is where the Antichrist will kill them. That place is Jerusalem. Christians included, all people will curse God through his two witnesses. The Christian world still will not have figured out that their conflict has come from their own deeds and blaspheming of God. When Satan speaks as God, These Christians still will not know what they have done; and that's why they have not repented. Next verse we have the beginning of completion of the 666 of 13:18)
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates;
and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
(The word "Euphrates" means "across the river" in Hebrew. That is where the people of "Heber" came from, God's people. Euphrates river has always been the boundary between God's children, and Babel, or "Babylon".
In the final generation of the end times, this river of boundary between Israel and Babel, or "Babylon" will dry up, and Babylon will over flow, and take over, because they will be alike in their doctrine. They will be as one, under the Antichrist, and his one world system. There will be very few that will not take part in this deception.
The religion of Babylon will overtake Christianity; Israel will have become Babylon. The two will be joined as one, and most Christians of today will take part in that marriage with Antichrist [Satan].)
13 And I saw three unclean spirits
(here we have the unholy trinity)
like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast,
(= the political system)
and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
(= the religious system, i.e. the "rapture" theory)
14 For they are the spirits of devils working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world to gather them for the battle of that great Day of God Almighty.
(These spirits are not of God, nor of the Holy Spirit, but of the Antichrist and his frog spirits. They will work miracles for the whole world to observe, and they will prepare the peoples of the whole earth for the battle against Almighty God. It's coming, friend; and the work of these frog spirits of devils has already formed, and is spreading like wild fire. Satan's children, the Kenites [fake or non-Judah Jews] have their four hidden dynasties put together and functioning today. Those dynasties are Education [from home, (TV) schools and media], Economics [Banking, commerce, and industry], Political [governments], and Religion [through their world council of Churches].
The Kenites are ready for their father Satan, and they are preparing you also for their celebration. Satan will put all he has into this battle, and I have no doubt, he even thinks he can win. He knows God's Word [the Bible], and it is clear he has a limited mind, and is totally underestimating the power of God. This next verse forms a parenthesis)
15 "Behold, I come as a thief.
(i.e. not expected if they think Jesus is already here and they are worshiping the false thinking it is Him, and then the real Jesus comes)
Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments,
(= the Gospel armor & righteous acts. He wants workers that can make a stand)
lest he walk naked, and they see his shame."
16 And he gathered them together at a place called in the Hebrew tongue, Armageddon.
((If you have repented, and are sealed in your mind, this place does not exist for you. Once you have repented and come to know God's Word, The Antichrist will not be tempting to you. You know Satan is coming first, then after the five months of Antichrist's world rule, the seventh trumpet will sound, and Jesus Christ will return to earth.
This gathering at Arm-ageddon [Megiddo] is not the saints of God, but those in Satan's kingdom; to do battle with God. "Megiddo" means "the gathering place of the crowd", and that crowd is Satan's. They have gathered to do battle with Jesus Christ. This is no secret to Satan, only to ignorant Christians who refuse to study God's Word.
The Antichrist knows he has five month, for it is written. He knows where and when Christ would return, and every other detail concerning the return of Christ: Why? Because it is written in the Scriptures. That place is on mount Zion, because that is where Jesus Christ is going to return, when His feet touch the ground. Satan will be ruling from there, his people will be there, and that is where the Battle of Armageddon will take place. Because it is written.
The whole battle of the end times is over the Word of God, a spiritual battle, and it is through your understanding of that Word [Bible] that you will survive spiritually. It is a battle for your eternal soul.)
17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of Heaven from the throne, saying, "IT IS DONE!"
(This is happening on the "Lord's day", when Christ shall return. The full time of the battle will more then likely, be a time less that an hour. The tribulation, up to the Seventh trumpet is false teaching, and bad religion. On this day of the Lord, God will take His cup of wrath, and pour it out on the earth, on all those who refuse to study His Word. It is aimed at those who follow, or allowed the Kenites to lead them into Antichrist's arms.
Satan is the prince of the air, and this vial is poured out upon him, when Satan stands up, following his declaration that he is God. He will have just killed the two witnesses of God, who have plagued the earth in their accusations towards all mankind, and the people of the earth will be in celebration. God will have had His fill of all of them.
"It is done", came the voice of God, and the wrath of God is being poured out on the people of the earth.)
18 And there were voices and thunders and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as has not been since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great.
(When Christ died on the cross, His last words were "It is finished", and we entered into the period we call "Grace" today. It was a new age.
When the Antichrist declares himself God in the Abominable act, God will say "It is done", and then we will start another new age. The start of this new age will be the flattening of Jerusalem, where not one stone will be left standing upon another.)
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and great Babylon came to remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.
(Jerusalem will fall, as will all major cities of the world. "Came in remembrance" means God's wrath is poured out upon her. Great Babylon is the "Mother of Harlots", the head of all religions, and she will have the Antichrist, Satan, as it's head. This wrath is coming to this generation, because it is the last generation of this flesh age. We identify this fact by the fact that Jesus said that the generation that saw the Fig Tree [Nation of Israel of the Jews] planted in Palestine, "that generation shall not pass [die off] until all prophecy came into being". Matthew 24:32-35, Mark 13:28-31.
Jesus prayer on the cross: "let not this cup.. etc.."; He is praying for all those who would be deceived, for He knew God's wrath would fall upon them. Put this in true perspective, friend. That prayer was for us, you and I living at the time of the Antichrist, in our generation, and the cup of God's wrath is going to fall on our friends and loved-ones who take Satan's name and number. It will fall on all, but the few that have God's seal in their minds.)
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
(mountains = nations. Every cell of religious order will be gone, with no nations or governments left in existence. The world system will be dead, over and gone. The only kingdom from this time ever, will be the Kingdom of Jesus Christ right here on earth. This is the start of His Millennium kingdom, and every knee will bow to him, and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.)
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent. And men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
(This is the destruction physically of Satan's crowd at Megiddo, and it is God who will destroy them with hail stones weighing about 180 pounds. Did mankind repent when the stones came? No, in fact they will curse God for it. This is the end of one worldism, and the Antichrist. I hope you will not be deceived also by them and waiting for the wrath of God.
Now is the time to prepare your heart and mind to stand against the Antichrist, and put on your spiritual armor, as spoken of in Ephesians 6:10-20.)
