1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God.” 2 So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and a harmful and painful sore afflicted the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image.
The plagues in Revelation 16 and God’s wrath on the earth are like God’s wrath on Egypt and the plagues He released on them. There are many similarities between Revelation and Exodus about God’s wrath, who is effort’d by the plagues and who isn’t. So, like Exodus, the Lord is a warrior, and from His holy temple, He tells the angels, does His will.
As the army of God’s angels goes out, the first angel releases the pour out. It’s a plague and only affects those who worship the beast’s mark. This is another similarity between Exodus and those plagues harmed. He doesn’t see barcodes; He doesn’t see micro-chips; the Lord knows a vaccine cannot make a person’s heart defile or do idol worship; he can see the hearts of man and know whom they worship. There is a fear of the book of Revelation from Christian, who say they love God. Some don’t read God’s word with a spiritual heart, so they believe in rumors like a rescue of the church, and they miss when God pours out His wrath. A spiritual mind reads all the Bible, and a person will see that when God is passing judgment, He never punishes His own.
Exodus 9:4 But the Lord will distinguish between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt so that nothing will die of all that belongs to the sons of Israel.”’” 5 And the Lord set a definite time, saying, “Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.” 6 So the Lord did this thing on the next day, and all the livestock of Egypt died, but not one of the livestock of the sons of Israel died.
The first wrath attacks the skin of those who worship the beast, and they are very painful. I had uncomfortable skin rashes or irritations, like poison ivy or sunburn, but a boil is like defilement. A foreign object gets under the skin, and infection begins. An annoyance begins, soreness, and then pain is experienced. Satan attacked Job with such a plague. Satan knew that humankind could tolerate some tribulations, but an attack on a person’s heart, even the skin, is so unbearable cause God will begin.
Job 2:4 Satan answered the Lord and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has, he will give for his life. 5 However, reach out with Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh; he will curse You to Your face!”
God’s new Job’s heart and knew he wouldn’t sin or curse Him. The book of Revelation is about final judgment; the Lord knows who worships Him and those who curse Him. So He doesn’t mind inflicting their flesh with painful boils. Revelation 16 is the final judgment that those with painful boil will not repent or ask the Lord to be saved from the torture they are receiving. They can see those who have no boils as the actual punishment know you could have missed out on such torment if they worship the true God, rather than an empty beast. This is the first of seven plagues, and the boils don’t kill anyone, so they have more of God’s wrath to experience. If any of you want to escape God’s wrath, ask me, and I will help you. God bless you. Jesus loves you and do, I. Samuel J Head.
Exodus 9:8 Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Take for yourselves handfuls of soot from a kiln, and Moses shall toss it toward the sky in the sight of Pharaoh. 9 Then it will become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and will turn into boils breaking out with sores on every person and animal through all the land of Egypt.” 10 So they took soot from a kiln and stood before Pharaoh, and Moses tossed it toward the sky, and it became boils breaking out with sores on every person and animal. 11 The soothsayer priests could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were on the soothsayer priests as well as on all the Egyptians.
