Revelation 16 - The seventh vial poured

The seventh vial poured

Rev 16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

The invading nations from the East will be gathered together at the valley called Armageddon.

Rev 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.

God spoke that this is the final vial judgment as the vial was poured into the air, the domain of the prince of the power of the air.

Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Rev 16:18 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.

Fearful noises, angels voices, thunders and lightnings; a great earthquake, all would be shaken, so great was it.

Heb 12:25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
Heb 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

Now is the day of salvation. Turn to Jesus before these things happen upon the children of disobedience.

Rev 16:19 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. Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Spiritual Babylon, representing the evil wealthy nation controlled by satan.

Rev 16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

Because of the great shaking of the earth, islands and mountains were leveled. Reminding us of another judgment, thegreat flood that covered the mountains and islands.

Gen 7:19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

No matter how great man thinks he is, God is greater and is able to bring all down. We should humble ourselves in fear of the almighty God.

Psa 95:3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
Psa 95:4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
Psa 95:5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
Psa 95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.
Psa 95:7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,

Rev 16:21 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.

Great hail stones fell weighing a talent, which is over one hundred pounds each: and men continued to blaspheme God. If they blaspheme God in this life, they will do so in the next life. It is obvious why there is a separation between heaven and hell. What more could be done to get the people to bow before God?

Victory Over Death
