THE SEVEN LAST PLAGUES
As the multitudes of saints making up the collective bride of Christ stand on the vast expanse of glittering crystal before the temple of God; seven angels are given the seven bowls of God’s wrath to be poured out on the earth.
Rev 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.
The first viol or bowl was poured out on the earth and men were afflicted with grievous sores. The word noisome refers to disgusting, and is usually a reference to weeping sores which ooze pus and noxious material. The word grievous would refer to very painful or debilitating.
This affliction was poured on those who were in rebellion against God and refuse to keep all of his commandments; compromising and breaking God’s word as the COG Groups do today.
Remember that if the mark of the beast is Sabbath pollution as the COG Groups teach; then they have the mark of the beast by their own teachings; for they all teach to pollute the Sabbath and persecute those who keep the Sabbath Holy.
If the mark of the beast is rebellion against any of God’s commandments; the COG Groups still have that mark as they pollute Sabbath and high Days and break many other commandments as well.
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 second viol follows quickly after and the “sea” is turned into a coagulated mess. I do not know if this refers to all seas or to the Med Sea alone.
3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
This then spreads to open bodies of fresh water as the third angel pours out his viol. People are then required to dig wells for water as the Egyptians did when the Nile was turned to the same kind of bloody mess.
4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.
6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.
7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
The fourth angel causes the sun to flare with great heat upon the earth.
8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
The fifth angel obscured the light in the kingdom of the beast, so that the kingdom was cloacked in darkness.
10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
After the beast [the new Europe, the seventh revival of the scarlet beast and its ruler] is counter attacked when he attacks Asia in the third year, he moves to Jerusalem as his last redoudt; and the armies of Asia pursue him there.
Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
The Asian armies which were destroying the seat of the beast and his kingdom in Europe, turn south towards Jerusalem in hot pursuit of the beast and false prophet, and the sixth angel opens the way for them by drying up the river Euphrates. The Euphrates already having been turned to congealed blood, dries up very quickly allowing vast armies of men to pass over.
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.
As the Euphrates dries up demons go forth to encourage these armies to turn south to Jerusalem to confront the coming Christ. Of course these are lying spirits and may be saying that a final blow can be struck against the beast in Jerusalem where he has taken refuge; or any similar thing.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
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 to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Now Christ declares that when he comes to take the Kingdom he will be coming WITH his saints to destroy rebellion and wickedness and to rule the earth is righteousness. This is not referring to the resurrection of the bride which will be on the sixth day of ULB.
Blessed is the one who is watching and keeping himself from joining the rebellious!
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
Now the seventh angel pours out his viol and Christ comes WITH his saints and a mighty earthquake,
Zech 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
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.
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 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 wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
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.
Consider that all these events including the movement of mighty armies could not take place in the one day of the resurrection of the bride as the seventh trump began to sound. Also consider that these plagues were poured out while the saints stood before the Temple of God in heaven.
The key to understanding this is the difference between the 1,290 days and the 1,335 days of Dan 12. the resurrection is at the end of the 1,290 days and the final plagues take another 45 days to be poured out; at which time Christ comes WITH his saints
