The Terrorizing Wrath of God Part 2

“The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath”

      The wrath of God is what takes place at the end of The Great Tribulation. Many times when we hear about The Great Tribulation, we place our focus on the doings of The Antichrist during that time. The Great Tribulation indeed, is going to be a terrorizing time for the Christians that are born again during that time. The Antichrist will come after them with no mercy. I believe that many people will be saved during that time; that is what makes this The Great Tribulation. If everybody is in agreement with the Antichrist there is no need for problems.

      A small study on the Great Tribulation will quickly show us that this is a time when Christians will suffer persecution like never before in the history of Christianity. However, today I want to talk to you about the most terrifying thing any of us can possibly face besides hell, and that is…The Wrath of God! Revelation Chapter sixteen gives us a good insight of the beginning of the end of The Great Tribulation and gives us specificity concerning The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath. In verse one we read:

“Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth.” (NKJV)

 

The word Wrath in this verse means:

To move impetuously, particularly as the air or wind, a violent motion or passion of the mind. Anger, wrath, indignation[1] So, what is that “passion of the mind” that is reflected in these seven bowls? Lets start from the beginning:

 1. Festering Sores:

The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.” Rev. 16:2 NIV

      The first bowl of God’s wrath is going to deal with those that agreed to worship the Beast and were given the mark of the beast that enables them to buy and sell. They will be punished with rotten wounds.

 2. The Sea Turned into Blood:

The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.” Rev. 16.3 NIV

 

      This second bowl will cause the water of the sea to turn to blood. This will cause every living thing in the sea to die, which means that the food supply from the sea will be gone. This blood is the blood that will also have a rotten smell, as it is the blood of dead people.

3. The Water’s of the Rivers and Springs Will Turn to Blood:

 “The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.” NIV

With this bowl of God’s wrath, drinking water is awfully damaged, but also the animals on earth will be greatly affected. So, not only that food supply is not good, but also water supply is also awfully affected.

      So far, with only these first three bowls of God’s anger, you have people with decomposed wounds, seas turning to blood, all animals in the sea dead, no drinking water and the animals on the earth either dead or greatly affected. You would think that this is enough damage, but God is not done releasing His judgment yet.
