The picture painted in words in the book of revelations is quite frightening
Revelation 13:16, 17
Revelation 14:9, 10
The seven angels with the seven plagues ;appear’ when the full wrath of God is poured out.
Envy and outright hatred motivates the devil who prowls around seting up masses of God’s creatures for the ultimate fall; receive the mark of the beast rather than God’s divine seal.
When the age is about to come to an end, many will willingly give allegiance to the beast because they have been blinded by him and their hearts have turned cold to their creator. This will earn them the seven last plagues
First plague: The contents of the first bowl will cause painful sores upon those “who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 16:2). It appears these painful, open sores will be caused by some sort of skin disease or infection.
Second plague: When this bowl is poured out, the sea will become blood and cause all life in it to die (verse 3). The death of saltwater marine life will destroy a major food source for millions of people.
Third plague: After the third angel pours out its bowl, the rivers and springs of water will become blood (verse 4). This plague will destroy freshwater fish—even further impacting the food supply for millions of people.
Fourth plague: The fourth bowl will cause the sun to become so hot as “to scorch men with fire” (verse 8).
Fifth plague: This punishment will bring darkness, pains and sores (verses 10-11).
Sixth plague: The bowl containing this plague shall be poured out on the Euphrates River, causing it to dry up and make land travel easier for the armies of “the kings of the earth and of the whole world” to assemble at the, Battle of great day of God Almighty at Armageddon. From this location, the assembled armies will then advance toward Jerusalem for a final battle against Jesus Christ (verses 12-16).
Seventh plague: In this final plague, “noises and thunderings and lightnings” and “such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth shall occur,” (verse 18).Babylon, the powerful false religion, will fall (verse 19; Revelation 18:2) and there will be devastating hail, with hailstones weighing up to a “talent”—approximately 100 pounds (verse 21). Revelation 16:15
Revelation 15:7 describes these seven last plagues as “golden bowls full of the wrath of God” to be poured out upon the earth. the King James Bible and others use the word vial instead of bowl in this passage and in Revelation 16:1.
Deceived by Satan the devil through an end-time political and religious power; the “beast,” enraged and determined, the whole world will mobilize and unite to destroy God’s people, defying and blaspheming God even as the wrath of God is poured out in full strength.
