“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?
An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director.
While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog.
In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing. Angel is the author of two books, Hope for the divorcee: Forgiving and Moving Forward and 7 Banderas de Esperanza: La Bendición de Yokdzonot.
