6 These have power to shut heaven, so that it does not rain during the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with plagues, as often as they will.
1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues; for with them the wrath of God is filled up.
6 And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure white linen, and having their chests girded with golden girdles.
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, until the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you do not share in her sins, and so you will not receive her plagues.2 [Some of God's people are still in Christendom Babylon; God is pleading with his elect to leave the false church. Arise and depart, for this is not the rest. Because it is defiled, it shall destroy you, even with a grievous destruction. Micah 2:10]
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day: death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire. For the Lord God who judges her, is strong.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, who has power over these plagues; but they did not repent and give him glory.
|Revelation 21:9 |
9 Then one of the seven angels came to me who had the seven bowls [vials] full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife."
