It is when the fourth angel pours out its vial upon the sun, that people began to be scorched with fire. This is much worse than a sunburn, but actual skinning burning like a house fire because of what happened to the sun. Surely, people will be upset and blame God, not repent of their sins, which they should be doing. Then, when the fifth angel poured his vial upon the followers of the beast, because of the mark they got, it became very dark. They were already pained because of their sores all over their body, and this made things even harder to find people that could help them. In pain and torment did they blaspheme God. John saw this and said, “and the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 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. 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, and blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.” (Revelation 16:8-11) Anybody who is around at this time will surely wish they were dead because of the pains and afflictions they have to go through. Thankfully the righteous are spared from these plagues that God causes these angels to pour out upon the earth.
When the sixth angel pours its vial upon the Euphrates river, it will begin to dry up. This will cause a major drought in the area of Syria, Iraq, and other surrounding areas. Earlier the water became blood, and now it is no more in this area. This I when a battle will begin like no other called Armageddon. Evil spirits that appear to be like frogs, which will cause men to fight against God and his angels. This is recorded in the following verses… “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. 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.” (Revelation 16:12-16) Millions of lives will be lost in this war, which will cause their blood to be spilled upon the earth. My friends, this is the war to end all wars. Anybody who is not on God’s side will be destroyed on this day when God’s wrath is felt upon the earth. Therefore, repent and come to Jesus!
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that fewer people have to be around when it comes to the angels pouring out their vials of Your wrath upon the wicked. This will be devastating, to say the least for people who are alive. Unfortunately, those who worshipped the beast and got his mark will be the ones who are afflicted in this day. Praise be to God that You will spare the righteous from these times of great tribulation and destruction. It is my desire to see more people be saved and go to heaven one day, but this has to be a decision that each individual has to make. I can’t force people’s hands to lay down their pride and confess their sins. Even if they prayed a sinners prayer with me, I would want them to dedicate their lives to follow You and not just do so for a minute of their life. It is so true, God, that most people who go to hell didn’t want to obey You in the first place. And if they don’t wish to do Your will, why would they want to in heaven or the new earth? But then we have people who are upset with me by telling them that there is a heaven and a hell and to repent of their sins. If people could just realize how sanctification works, they would repent and thank me. Truly, Lord, when your blood covers us, we are washed clean. No longer are we spotted with sin but made clean in Your sight. Thank You for touching my life and doing this for me. I owe everything to You now. Therefore, I live my life for You. I love You, Lord. Amen.
