The Things Which Shall Be Hereafter – Part XIII

The Last 7 Vial Judgments


The hour of God’s wrath has come.  There is a voice out of the temple telling the last seven angels to pour out the vials of the wrath of God on the earth.  Four of the seven vials are repetitions of the plagues in Moses time against the Pharaoh.  As each angel pours out each vial, the plagues torture the men who have taken the mark of the beast or worshipped his image.  They still do not repent and they continue to blaspheme God

Between the sixth and seventh vial judgment, we have a break in the sequence, and unclean miracle working spirits come out of the unholy trinity to gather the nations of the whole world to the Battle of Armageddon.

At the pouring out of the 7th vial, there are voices, thunder, lightening, and an earthquake like the world has never seen before.  The book of Zechariah tells us that this is when Christ sets His foot on The mount of Olives and the earth is split.  There is then great hail of about 100 pounds each that stones to death the blasphemers of the Lord, just as the law had commanded in Leviticus.


Revelation 16:1 ¶ And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

Revelation 16:2 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.

Exodus 9:9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.

Exodus 9:10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.

Exodus 9:11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.
