"But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" 1 Peter 3:15 (KJV)
The Terrorizing Wrath of God Last Part
“The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath”
7. The Greatest Earthquake of All Times:
“17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20 Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21 From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.” (NIV)
When Jesus was getting ready to die on the cross he declared: “It is finished” (John 19:30) Jesus was declaring that He completed the perfect plan of salvation for the world. Here we see the Seventh Angel saying, in a loud voice: “It is done”, declaring the end of times, the end of this dimension of life.
Jesus said that it was finished and the earthquake sealed his proclamation, just as an earthquake will also take place in the end times, where people that were dead will come back to life (Matthew 27:50-54). When the Seventh Angel gets ready to declare the end of this age, that proclamation will be sealed with another earthquake; one that will shake the whole world to the point that people will see the end of all Islands and mountains. Like that was not enough, we see the following in verse twenty-one:
“From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.”
Again we see the confirmation of God’s judgment by the hard hearts of the people. With all these signs they still cursed God.
Beloved I am totally convinced that just as the Plagues that God sent against Egypt only affected the Egyptians and not the Israelites, this wrath of God’s anger are also designed to only affect the rebellious. This seventh bowl marks the very end of this age; however we are now still in the church age. The next event in the prophetic calendar of events is the rapture. From the rapture to the manifestation of God’s wrath is about seven years. Are you Rapture ready?
