The Book of Revelation 15:6-8

Seven Golden Vials

6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

7 And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.”

(Rev 15:6-8 KJV)

The seven golden vials contain the seven plagues that will strike the Earth for the last 3.5 years of the Tribulation period. This is the last set of sevens of the wrath of God that will be poured out before the second coming of Jesus with His saints.

Just as in the Old Testament, the temple is filled with the glory of God for the 3.5 years. No one is able to enter into the temple, showing that no one can stop God from His judgment.

“And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD’S house.” (2Ch 7:2 KJV)

“So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.” (Eze 43:5 KJV)

“Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face.” (Eze 44:4 KJV)
