This chapter may be a bit dark as it is a warning of punishment to come upon the earth but remember, christian, that we as believers will no longer be here on this earth but in the presence of the Lord at this time. We cannot only read the parts of the #Bible that are about peace and joy. Such cherry picking is dangerous. While chapters that speak of Love and peace are very important, so are those that warn us of the consequences of sin and un-repentance.


Over the last few decade I have been hearing more and more about the theory of global warming. The idea that the Sun is slowly heating up the earth’s atmosphere and will one day make the earth inhabitable. This of course is suppose to be the direct result of pollutants created by mankind. As I study chapter 16 in #Revelation, themes of global warming are mentioned in commentaries and presented as possibilities for the source of the following #judgements poured out upon the earth. Whether these judgements are triggered by man-made events or supernaturally appear with no other explanation than the hand of God released them, the fact remains that they ARE judgements of God.


“Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.”


Will the oceans become actual blood? OR will a red tide occur that spreads to every ocean? I don’t know what God has planned or how His judgements will be carried out. I DO know, that these judgements are serious, and though mankind may want to collectively believe that they are undeserving of such harsh punishments, the #truth is (at this point) they have turned away from God and are serving another master.


“Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.”

God’s Judgement on the earth is just and righteous. Many times, we as Christians live in a bubble. While we should take care to spend time and fellowship with other believers, we should not be unaware of the state of the world. How can we ready the oil for our lamps if we aren’t seeing the signs that the Lord’s return is fast approaching? This includes the state of world. We cannot ignore the evil that rules this world and turns the heads and hearts of the unbelievers. I have wondered how truly bad the state of the earth was that God flooded the entire surface, and how evil the people of Sodom and Gamorah that they should be destroyed. It is easy to turn our eyes away from the evil that steals into every part of our surroundings but #Christians, we cannot do that.



“And I heard the angel of the waters saying: “You are righteous, O Lord, The One who is and who was and who is to be, Because You have judged these things. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due.” And I heard another from the altar saying, “Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.””


The saints and prophets are under attack even now. In this chapter the world will be much worse and those that believe will be brutally dealt with. God is giving the just dues of those who bring harm to His children.


“Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.”


When shown the power of God, the people will turn from Him and blame them for their misery. Instead of repentance and seeking the Lord’s mercy, they will blaspheme His name. Their hearts are hardened and their desires have become more important than salvation or mercy. Yet, through all this they have always had the choice to repent and turn to #God. They chose not to follow Him even knowing how powerful He is.


Little sparrows, this chapter is a warning. There is destruction to come upon the earth and there will be pain and suffering for those who don’t follow Christ Jesus and repent. I pray you will share His love and #mercy with those around you this day.
