The Book of Revelation 16:15

Posted by on Jun 22, 2014 in Prophecy

As a Thief

“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)

This is the third blessing statement of the apocalypse. Jesus gives us one more warning that He is coming quickly and we do not know the time. To watch is to be ready spiritually. To keep garments, also ‘keep your robes white’, is metaphoric of living in holiness. Jesus is coming back for those that are watching for His coming and have kept their robes white. This echoes Jesus’ statement in Matthew.

Apostolic Study Bible Quick Review and Things I Plan to Add

Apostolic Study Bible 001

It has a nice layout, very thick and opaque paper, and a large print. The section-headings in the text are awesome. It looks like the Schuyler Quentel but with blue chapter numbers and dividing line instead of red. It could not look better in my opinion. I will use it for the text alone. Since there is a little bit of writing space at the end of most books, I’m treating it like a wide-margin Bible and I’m making some additions of my own.

Spirits like Frogs

13 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.

14 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.”

(Rev 16:13-14 KJV)

The Sixth Vial

“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.” (Rev 16:12 KJV)

The river Euphrates is a natural border between the East and West. Drying up this river clears this boundary for the kings of the east to cross and join the Battle of Armageddon. Isaiah prophesied of this event.

8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

The Blood Moon

Posted by on Apr 14, 2014 in Prophecy

We get a rare lunar eclipse tonight called the ‘blood moon’. The moon will literally look the color of blood. As it happens, Joel prophesied in the Old Testament that the moon would be turned to blood before the second coming of Christ.

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”

(Joe 2:30-31 KJV)

The Third Vial

4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

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.”

(Rev 16:4-7 KJV)

The Second Vial

“And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.” (Rev 16:3 KJV)

The second vial turns the sea to blood of the dead, killing every creature in the sea. Some believe that the sea turns the color of blood, while others proclaim it is literal blood. It is very specific as to what kind of blood it is: blood of a dead man. It could be that the blood of those killed has run into the sea, or they died in the sea. Since it uses the term ‘as’, it could be figurative. I believe it is literal, just like in Exodus.

The First Vial

“And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.” (Rev 16:2 KJV)

The first vial causes severe sores on those that took the mark of the beast and worshipped his image. Some suggest that the mark itself could have caused the sores. Examples of why this could happen include chips under the skin that melt or leach poisons into the body.
