REVELATION CHAPTER 16


Seven Vials of God were poured out declaring the Battle of Armageddon and the destruction of Babylon.



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."(Rev.chapter 16 here)

Rev 16 Verses 3-11 (HereThe first five vials of God's wrath brings suffering and torment upon the inhabitants of the earth. They all have heard the gospel ministered (preached) unto them, and have rejected God and His ministry. They have slain God's people and poured out innocent blood, and set up their own gods, and now they must suffer the wrath of God's judgment in the flesh.

God's wrath, and grievous sores were poured upon men which had taken the mark of the Beast, and upon them which worshiped His image. The water of the sea became as blood of a dead man, and all of the living of the sea died. The rivers and fountains of waters became blood. The water was turned to blood as a reminder of the blood of Jesus and the blood of His innocent people which had been shed by the ungodly wicked.

Rev 16 Verses 6-11
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.
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.
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
      sours, and repented not of their deeds."
A vial of pain and terror, and great sores were poured out upon the seat of the Beast. It was a time to prepare for the last and final war in the flesh, and the time for the Beast to gather and prepare His army.

Rev 16 Verse 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.”


In the Old Testament, the river Euphrates is spoken of as the great river. It winds its way to the Persian Gulf in a course of approximately 1780 miles. It serves as a boundary, the east from the west. To reach the land of Israel it is necessary to cross the River. The kings of the east are Those from the land of the rising sun, namely, China with the ensign of the great Dragon.

Japan is also the land of the rising sun; North and South Korea, and North and South Vietnam. They are gathered together with the rest of the nations to a place in the land of Israel, which in the Hebrew tongue is called Armageddon. There they are all prepared to fight against the wrath of the Almighty God the Last and Final Battle, where they will all be destroyed in the flesh,

2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 "And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,...In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:... Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power."

Revelation 16:13-16
"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...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.....Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame...And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon."…...They are in preparation for battle against the great Army of God from heaven.

The Dragon is Lucifer Who was cast out of heaven and has been held in a state of limited capacity. He is called the Dragon, the Old Serpent, the Devil, and Satan, Revelation 12:9 ”And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”.

The redemption of man on earth has ended and the Dragon and the Beast and the False Prophet were released by God, and given their full strength to gather the kings and nations together to prepare them for the great battle against the Almighty God. Armageddon is mentioned but once in the Bible. It refers to the great plain which lies at the foot of Mount Megiddo where the last battle between good and evil will occur. Many battles have been fought there in the past.

The Army from heaven is clearly declared to be Jesus Christ and His Elect, after They have been married. Revelation chapter 19.(Read Here)

Revelation 16:17 "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."….The last vial will be poured out upon the whole world of ungodly sinful flesh, and the earth will be cleansed of all sin. The results of the releasing of the seventh vial we read about in: 

Revelation
16 verses 18-21..."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...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...And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found...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."

The preparation for the 1,000 year Reign with Christ on earth can readily be seen by the great phenomenon’s of this prophecy when He will have cleansed the world of all sin and sinners.
Verses 18 through 21 (above)refer to the Battle of Armageddon and the destruction of all flesh from the face of the earth. More details of this battle are given after chapter 17, and after Mystery Babylon has been destroyed.
