Rev. #51~15:+16:1-7-pt 1 THE BOWLS OF GODS WRATH POURED OUT

Today we’ll read verses 5-8 in chapter 15 in order to get our thought line back on track and then we’ll move on to chapter 16: where we left off at last time.

The Bible, contains the story of man losing his lordship over the earth to Satan, the usurper,**{ to take possession of without legal claim} it tells of the recovery through the God-man Savior, the Lion who is also the Lamb.

He alone is able to accomplish what no one else in the universe can, and He does so through the judgments of the sealed book.

Keep in mind; the Tribulation is first of all God’s discipline on the Jews for their willful rejection of Christ as their Messiah and for their stubbornness. It will purge out the rebellious Jews and cause the rest to turn to Christ.

Ø These 7 last plagues will show:

(a) The total rebellion and independence of the earth dwellers to their Creator.

Because of the callousness and hardening built up in the hearts of these earth dwellers, these judgments will result in anger and blasphemy from the heart and mouths of men rather than fear and reverence and trust.

They are hardening plagues, which God uses to His own glory.

(b) But these plagues (bowl judgments) will crush man’s rebellion and remove the rebellious from the earth.

Ø God is dealing with His chosen people Israel in this tribulation.

Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.—1/3 will be saved.

Ezekiel 20: 33-34 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you: 34And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.

Ø 2/3 rds of the Jews will be killed in the tribulation.

Zechariah 13:8-9 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

These last seven plagues will complete Gods purposes as well as bring an end to the judgments.

Ø Remember chapter 15 was telling us about the 7 last plagues of the tribulation and here in

Chapter 16: their poured out on the earth dwellers, at this time the restraint of the Holy Spirit who is at work today through the church, the body of Christ, will have been completely removed. The Tribulation, without the Holy restrainer will be a time of unprecedented lawlessness and unrighteousness; the Holy Spirit will remove the True Church when He leaves, and this takes place back in chapter 4 so we that are saved will not be here.

The number seven is the number of perfection and completion. Seven plagues again remind us that these 7 judgments will accomplish a perfect and complete work on earth to prepare its inhabitants for the return of Jesus Christ.
