The War Between God and Satan: The Seven Bowls

Covid 19

The war between God and Satan intensifies when the bowls of God’s wrath are poured out. First followers of the Beast receive festering sores (Rev. 16:2). Then seafood dies in a poisoned sea (Rev. 16:3) and drinking water becomes blood to drink repaying them for slaughtering the church (Rev. 16:4-7).

Then solar flares scorch men directly (Rev. 16:8-9). Unlike the first three plagues, this scorches the Beast’s followers directly and they respond to this surprising exhibition of incredible power with fake bravado. Now they blaspheme the Name of God as the Beast did in Revelation 13:6, denying His superiority.

6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. (Rev. 13:6 NKJ)

The Little Horn big mouth (Dan. 7:25; 2 Thess. 2:4) boasting he is a “hybrid Elohim human” above YHWH and His angels in nature:

“Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. (Dan. 11:36 NKJ)

So that is the context, the Dragon and Nephilim taught “scientific Atheism“, the “BIG LIE” YHWH is a competing Extraterrestrial Elohim. That the combined forces of the Dragon and Beast could defeat YHWH and His army (Rev. 16:13-14).

When God strikes them directly, they blaspheme God as weak, although in fact they were scorched greatly and in great pain. “Is that all you got? You don’t dare come down here to war against the Beast and his army!”

And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.(Rev. 16:9 NKJ)

The Fifth bowl strikes the throne of the Beast casting his kingdom into darkness. Their insulting tongues are then involuntarily gnawed reacting to the extreme pain from the sores (Rev. 16:10-11).

Interpreters miss the subtle shift in attitude. The rebels lost their confidence. Until now they insulted the “name of God” as “weak” (Rev. 16:9), but now they see God actually is very powerful, “the God of heaven”. He controls the sky.

They still blaspheme, but YHWH now has gained respect, their boasting is hollow, lacking the confidence of before.

The Dragon, the Beast and the False Prophet, who seemed invincible, so far proved powerless against God! Reality was contradicting the “BIG LIE“. Rather than YHWH losing the war, only He is winning!

The King of the South senses this weakness and rebels against Adonikam:

40 “At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.
41 “He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown; but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the prominent people of Ammon.
42 “He shall stretch out his hand against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
43 “He shall have power over the treasures of gold and silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt; also the Libyans and Ethiopians shall follow at his heels. (Dan. 11:40-43 NKJ)

Sixth Bowl dries up Euphrates preparing the way for Iran and allies to attack from the east

Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. (Rev. 16:12 NKJ)

Gog and Magog attack the Beast while he is still in Egypt subduing the King of the South:

“But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many. (Dan. 11:44 NKJ)

Gog and Magog and Allies begin attack in Israel. Russia and Turkey from her North, Iran and allies from her East:

14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog,`Thus says the Lord GOD: “On that day when My people Israel dwell safely, will you not know it?
15 “Then you will come from your place out of the far north, you and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army.
16 “You will come up against My people Israel like a cloud, to cover the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.” (Ezek. 38:14-16 NKJ)

YHWH God Himself destroys God and Magog and all their hoard, in the valley of Jehoshaphat (Joel 3:12-17) outside the city of Jerusalem:

18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord GOD, “that My fury will show in My face.
19 “For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken:`Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel,
20 `so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’
21 “I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord GOD. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother.
22 “And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 “Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.”‘ (Ezek. 38:18-39:1 NKJ)

This exhibition of YHWH God’s Almighty power strikes fear into the heart of the followers of the Beast.

A fresh dose of spiritism, the energy of delusion floods the earth The BIG LIE of Scientific Atheism, Ancient Alien Theory strong delusion that YHWH God and his Army can be defeated, unites the Beast’s followers to fight God at Armageddon:

13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. (Rev. 16:13-14 NKJ)

The demonic flying frogs symbolize the ufo delusion. The inspired propaganda works, they gather at Armageddon.

Back to the War

Now we connect the dots. Beast followers have lost heart; at every turn God proved the combined forces of the Dragon, Beast and False Prophet and their wondrous technology are powerless to stop God.

Gog and Magog and allies attack, YHWH God destroys them wonderfully making His Holy Name known—and His Power. Even those immersed in spiritism‘s strong delusion are terrified nothing finite can contend with the Infinite Almighty Creator (Ezek. 39:1-7).

With the evil triumvirate clearly losing, the confidence of the people is slipping away (Rev. 13:4). Therefore, a massive propaganda campaign made more convincing by the use of deceiving spirits deluding energy is required to “get everyone back on board”. The spirits do signs and wonders authenticating the lie they can defeat God. Likely, the skies fill with unprecedented UFO spectacle. Rebellious earth is deceived, they join the Beast’s army at Armageddon to fight God (Rev. 16:13-14, 16).

Only those written in the Lamb’s Book of Life “understand and so see” the truth of these events. They convert to Christ. All who endure to this end will be gathered up by Christ’s Holy Angels (Mat. 24:13; Mk. 13:13) even though they missed the rapture, not a hair on their head will be lost (Luke 21:16-22):

 

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. (Rev. 16:15) KJV

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. (Jn. 5:24 NKJ)

Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. (Jn. 11:26 NLT)

 

Babylon the Great does not fall during the Seventh Bowl or any of the Bowls.

There is a transition from the bowl judgments to the city of Babylon because she is the subject of the next two chapters (Rev. 17:1-18; 18:1-24)

Chapter and verse divisions are uninspired man-made creations, and an error was made here. There is an obvious transition from Rev. 16:19a where an earthquake affects Jerusalem and every other city world-wide, and Rev. 16:19b which is about the city of Babylon.

1.) If Babylon were already fallen with every other city by the earthquake, then Revelation 16:19b is tautological as Babylon was already given the cup of God’s wrath.
2.) If Babylon is the “great city” divided into three parts (as some interpret), then God already remembered to give her the cup of His wrath, and Revelation 16:19b is tautological:

19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell.

19b And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

Therefore, the Seventh bowl ended with the great earthquake affecting Jerusalem, and the army of Gog and Magog:

18 “And it will come to pass at the same time, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” says the Lord GOD, “that My fury will show in My face.
19 “For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken:`Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel,
20 `so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’
21 “I will call for a sword against Gog throughout all My mountains,” says the Lord GOD. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother.
22 “And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 “Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.”‘ (Ezek. 38:18-39:1 NKJ)

8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,” Says the LORD, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, But one-third shall be left in it:
9 I will bring the one-third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say,`This is My people’; And each one will say,`The LORD is my God.'” (Zech. 13:8-9 NKJ)

The prophecy then telescopes to Armageddon, where all possible places of escape flee from the Beast’s army, and a great aerial bombardment preps them for the arrival of our LORD and His calvary (Rev. 19:11-21)

20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great. (Rev. 16:19-21 NKJ)

Babylon is mentioned to begin the transition to the next two chapters where everything we need to know about Babylon the Great is revealed (Rev. 17:1-18; 18:1-24). Its “natural” John remember the city of Babylon, after discussing the fate of every city still existing on earth. Babylon is not among them; it was totally destroyed long before the Bowl judgments.

The destruction of the Harlot Babylon is by the hand of the ten horns who accept the ascension of Adonikam as Emperor and God. The religious Harlot services of Babylon no longer desired and in fact, she is hated for them.

“And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. (Rev. 17:16 NKJ)

Before the Bowl Judgments begin, Gog and Magog = Russia, Iran and Turkey and allies destroy rebuilt Babylon (Jer. 50:2-3, 9-13; 51:27-29), thus fulfilling all that is written concerning her (Jer. 50:3, 13, 39-40; 51:29; Rev. 18:2-10) by forces from her North (Jer. 50:41-42; 51:47-48) but ultimately it will be God’s judgment against her (Rev. 17:16-17; 18:8; Isa. 13:19-22; Jer. 51:63-64; Rev. 18:21).

Back to the war between God and Satan, Armageddon Begins

The sign of Christ’s coming is an opening in the heavens (Rev. 19:11) flashing lightning from east to west (Mat. 24:27, 30-31).

He who bears the two edged sword will soon ride through it, with His holy myriads to execute judgment on the ungodly for all the ungodly things they said about Him in an ungodly way (Jude 1:14-15).

God’s Spirit a Mighty Wind shakes the heavens, flying wings of abomination fall from the sky like leaves from a tree. The mighty Nephilim slain where they stand (Is.13:4-13; 24:17-22; 34:1-8; Rev. 6:12-13; 16:17-21).

In terror men try to flee but every possible island or mountain of refuge flees (Rev. 16:20).

Then the aerial bombardment begins (Rev. 16:21).

Christ the King has returned to utterly destroy the forces gathered at Armageddon (Rev. 19:11-21; 14:17-20). Blood “even unto horse bridles” symbolizes these died the death, eternal destruction from the presence of the Lord, there is no resurrection to life possible these destined for Second Death (Rev. 20:12-15). Those who accepted the Mark of the Beast or worshiped his image will be eternally tormented (Rev. 14:9-11) along with Satan and his Antichrist Beast and False prophet (Rev. 19:20; 20:10).

The “telescoped prophecy” in the sixth seal included some of the above events, and also includes what happens after Armageddon (Rev. 6:11-17). There is a great shaking (4578 σεισμός seismos) violently shaking the entire matrix of the meta-universe. The Sun becomes black, and moon blood signifying this is the great and terrible day of the LORD (Joel 2:31; Mt. 24:29-31; Mk. 13:24-27). The rapture of the church already happened (Rev. 14:14-16), now Christ sends out His angels to gather all saved after the rapture, the Archangel Michael and forces gather the Elect of the children of Israel (Dan. 12:1; Joel 3:11-16). The stars of the heaven dissolve but Satan’s ufo fleet fall like dead leaves falling to the earth (Rev. 6:13-14; Isa. 34:4. 2Pet. 3:12) slain in the heavens by the strong wind of God the Holy Spirit the Sword of God (Isa. 34:4-5).

The very sky of our matrix will be rolled back like a scroll and everyone yet on earth are in total terror seeking to hide from God Almighty looking down at them (Rev. 6:15-17).

Then the Son of man comes in His glory, the Saints human and angelic are with Him. He has come to judge all who survived these things, to separate the sheep from the goats.

All who vicariously received Him by receiving believers in their time of need, will be saved. All who aided the Beast hunting them down, are cast into everlasting fire:

31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
32 “All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.
33 “And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on His right hand,`Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 `for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
36 `I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying,`Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
38 `When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?
39 `Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
40 “And the King will answer and say to them,`Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand,`Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 `for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;
43 `I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying,`Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’
45 “Then He will answer them, saying,`Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’
46 “And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matt. 25:31-46 NKJ)

Sheep and Goat Judgment

With this awesome display power, God proved the Big Lie absurd, Satan and his co-conspirators never a chance.

Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished (Prov. 11:21 NKJ)

After this, Christ’s 1,000 year Kingdom on earth is set up. Satan bound for a thousand years. Then another test for mankind, all who found it impossible to live righteously (Rev. 20:1-15). But that is for another post. By the way, the Temple in Ezekiel is clearly symbolic, that’s implicit not only by its size, but also by its divergence from the Laws of Moses. Christ’s sacrifice fulfilled the law and its requirement for animal sacrifice (Dan. 9:24). That too is for another post.
