The Bowls of wrath tell of God’s judgment on those in Islam.
In context with the LeopardBearLion, these bowls are fulfilled in the Middle East.Revelation 15:1, NAS “Then I saw another sign in heaven, greatand marvelous, seven angels who had seven plagues, whichare the last, because in them the wrath of God is finished.” These plagues are “the last” so they take place after the LeopardBearLion is in Israel. The Seven Bowls are of the same nature as the Seven Trumpets so they are an intensification of them. In other words, spiritual conditions worsen as the Christian era nears the end.
Figurative Picture of The Christian EraRevelation 15:28 “And I saw something like a sea of glassmixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over thebeast (Satan’s LeopardBearLion beast, whose throne is in theMiddle East, probably at the Ka’aba Stone in Mecca) and hisimage (the second Jihad) and the number of his name (666) ,standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God. And theysang the song of Moses (Old Testament saints), the bond‐servant of God, and the song of the Lamb (New Testamentbelievers), saying, ‘Great and marvelous are Your works, OLord God, the Almighty; Righteous and true are Your ways,King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorifyYour name? For You alone are holy; For all the nations willcome and worship before you, for your righteous acts havebeen revealed.’
Revelation 16:1‐21 continued . . . “After these things I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle of testimony in heaven was opened, and the seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, clothed in linen, clean and bright, and girded around their chests with golden sashes. Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power; and no one was able to enter the temple (the new Jerusalem, because it remains uninhabited until the saints are glorified at the return of Jesus) until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.”
The Seven BowlsRevelation 16:121 “Then I heard a loud voice from the temple,saying to the seven angels, ‘Go and pour out on the earth theseven bowls of the wrath of God.’” Bowl Number One “So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth;and it became a loathsome and malignant (spiritual) sore on thepeople who had the mark of the beast (LBL) and who worshipedhis image” (the second Jihad). Bowl Number Two “The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea (of people,Rev 17:15), and it became blood like that of a dead man; and everyliving thing (soul) in the sea died” (no saved people in Islam).
Bowl Number Three “Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers andthe springs of waters (the Word of God); and they became blood(the Gospel corrupted with false doctrine). And I heard the angel(messenger) of the waters (Gospel) saying, ‘Righteous are You,who are and who were, O Holy One, because You judged thesethings; for they poured out the blood of saints (Christians) andprophets (Jews), and You have given them blood (of false doctrine)to drink. They deserve it.’ And I heard the altar (a figure for theCrucifixion so this is Jesus) saying, ‘Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty,true and righteous are Your judgments.’” Bowl Number Four “The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun (Jesus),and it was given to it to scorch men with fire (of the word of Hismouth, “Is not my word like a fire?”). Men were scorched withfierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of God who has thepower over these plagues, and they did not repent so as to giveHim glory. “
Bowl Number Five “Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of thebeast (the Ka’aba stone?), and his kingdom became (spiritually)darkened; and they gnawed their tongues because of (theirspiritual) pain, and they blasphemed the God of heaven becauseof their pains and their sores; and they did not repent of theirdeeds.” Bowl Number Six “The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, theEuphrates, (between Iraq, Iran and Syria so this is the Middle East);and its water was dried up (Spiritually, the whole Middle East isin Islam), so that the way would be prepared for the kings fromthe east (The major Islamic countries are East of Israel and this isstill about them). “And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon (Satan) andout of the mouth of the beast (Islam) and out of the mouth of thefalse prophet (Muhammad), three unclean spirits like frogs (theLeopardBearLion, aka. Islam); for they are spirits of demons,
Bowl Number Six continued . . .performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world,(Islam is no longer a Middle Eastern religion. It is spreading intothe rest of the world) to gather them together for the war of thegreat day of God, the Almighty (The Great White Throne, whichcould happen at any time). (Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who staysawake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about nakedand men will not see his shame.) And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrewis called Har‐Magedon.” (a place of war and judgment). Bowl Number Seven“Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and aloud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, ‘It isdone.’ (The Last Trumpet now Sounds) And there were flashes oflightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great
Bowl Number Seven continued . . earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to beupon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of thenations fell. Babylon the great was remembered before God, togive her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath. And every island(of isolated people) fled away, and the mountains were not found.And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each (thewarheads on Katusha rockets weigh about 100 pounds), camedown from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God becauseof the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremelysevere.”
