The Book of Revelation Chapter 16 – Overview
Revelation Chapter 16 describes ‘The Beginning of the End’ for the world’s powers who oppose God. The previous chapter sets up the rationale for this last blast of judgments. We see in Chapter 15 that the ‘Bowls of Wrath’ come from God’s Temple in Heaven. This helps the reader to see that these judgments are not from a capricious God, but rather from a God who is Holy and Just.
In Revelation Chapter 16, we also learn of the preparation process, as the world gets ready for Armageddon. Specifically, Antichrist will call forth three frog-like demons to rally the forces of evil together for a final confrontation with Christ in Israel at Armageddon. The frog demons will call upon the kings of Antichrist’s Empire, who will march their troops through the dried Euphrates to Jerusalem.
If we return to Revelation chapter 16, the rest of the chapter describes the punishments that God will mete out on the nations. The reason for this is that they will unite in opposition to Him and attack Jerusalem. Now as I say previously, the exact sequence of events is not laid out from us in scripture, but we have the pieces of the jigsaw namely; the Signs of the Times (Matthew 24), the Abomination that Causes Desolation (Matt. 24v15, Daniel 11v21), the Nations uniting to attack Israel, the Return of Christ, the Battle of Armageddon and the establishment of the Kingdom.
Those who believe in the secret rapture believe that Christ will come and take His children home, before the tribulation–before the seven last plagues of Revelation 16 are poured out on Planet Earth. Notice that there are seven plagues. Read about the first six plagues in Revelation 16:1-17. During the outpouring of the sixth plague Christ says He has not yet come. In Revelation chapter 16 and verse 15 Christ says “Behold I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake.” Revelation 16:15. It is during the sixth plague that Christ tells us that He still hasn’t come yet but is coming soon.
