Revelation 17:1-18

Revelation 17 and 18 is Babylon the great , which is to be ” the new world religious, economic and political system ” existing on earth before the return of Christ .

Judgment of the great whore   gran ramera
Then came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me , Come hither, I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters, 2 with whom they have committed fornication the kings of the earth and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication .

As we have already read earlier in chapter 16 where we studied the seven bowls , and all the judgments of God , we saw how his anger was poured out upon the earth, and the fall of Babylon . ( 16:17-21 ) . Now we see in this next chapter as one of the seven angels invites John to observe the fall of the great whore which is the “new world system apostate ” or also known as ” new world order” . nuevo sistema

Revelation refers us to several women , we must begin by

1. Jezabel , which begins introduced as apostasy in the Church Rev 2:20 .  jesabel

Two . Israel, Rev 12; 1 israel

Three . the harlot, the apostate end world system , we read in chapter 17 and 4 ,  Sistema_F_Internacional

II . The explanation ( 17:3-18 )

3 And he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns scarlet beast . 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet , and decked with gold , precious stones and pearls , having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication : 5 And upon her forehead was a name written , MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS and abominations of the earth. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel ? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns . 8 The beast that you saw was , and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go into perdition: and the inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life, they behold the beast that was and is not and will come . 9 Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits , 10 and they are seven kings . Five have fallen, one is , the other has not yet come, and when he cometh, he must continue a short time. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth , and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition . 12 And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings with the beast. 13 These have one mind , and shall give their power and strength unto the beast . 14 war against the Lamb , and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords and King of kings: and they that are with him are called and chosen and faithful. 15 He said to me : The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits , are peoples, multitudes , nations and languages. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the whore , and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh , and burn her with fire: 17 For God hath put in their hearts to accomplish his purpose agree , and give their kingdom unto the beast , until the words of God are fulfilled . 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth .

1. The whore wife whore

Come to verse 18 ” And the woman whom you saw is the great city we reigns over the kings of the earth.” Here we read very clear that this is a city that reigned over the earth in the days of John. The seven heads of verse 3 , they are symbols of mountains as we see in verse 9. You could say with certainty that is Rome. , Because this city is situated on seven hills. It should be noted that when the book of Revelation was written , Rome was who reigned over the kings of the earth.

Two . The beast Beast trono de la bestia

While we remember the chapter 13 we realize that it is the same beast that is the antichrist. This world ruler who presents Chapter 8 will surge from the abyss , serving notice to rise from the dead. This beast described here its presented to us dressed in scarlet, relating it to the dragon, which is none other than Satan see 12:3 . This beast has seven heads and ten horns, which is also identified with Satan see 12:3 , and 13:1 . If we now read verse 10 we see the seven heads are seven kings. equal seven mountains. And the ten horns that tell us in verse 10 are ten kings. So the beast resembles the antichrist and his person. These ” seven kings ” could be translated as “seven kingdoms ” assuring us that the kingdom of the beast will be the world’s seventh kingdom, one that not even the world has yet seen .

Three . The seven heads la bestia

We’ve reviewed over the heads and we have learned that there are seven mountains view (see 9 ) , and the seven kings or kingdoms ( see 10) Egypt , Assyria, Babylon , Persia, and Greece were the five fallen kingdoms. And ” Rome” was the kingdom that was in the days of John, so that way we can know that the kingdom is not yet come to the beast that is the seventh kingdom.

Four . The ten horns prophecy prophecy_mark-of-the-beast

Of these ten kings but we’ve explained in verse 12. , Where we talk about the revival of the Roman Empire is an analogy of the ten toes of the image of Daniel 2:36-45 . All this would be very strange for John because in his days even these kings had not received their power, because this ready for the last days , when resurface the European federation who will be lead by the beast when it comes to power . So, without a doubt , we know that these ten kings would support the beast in his battle against Christ and the saints which with the help of the beast, destroy the great whore .

Five. The nations waters  The-Great-Whore (1)

The nations of the world are the waters where the harlot sits . ( see 15). And this whore will have total influence over all the earth both in politics and in the economy, as well as in religion.

III . The application  rome

Rome is the harlot who represent the world church ” apostate ” in recent days . In recent times a new system of global Church was organized . And this ” bitch” will be involved in all political, economic world and with the help of the beast would become a great power system. This beast will have the full backing of the world or rather the ten kings to ride to victory . (Rev 6:1-2 ) The nations of Europe will come to a junction . During the first half of the Tribulation is where the scene in chapter 17 takes place , although there is still the beast is not even shown his true satanic character. But this will only be up to half of the tribulation , because this beast will want to take all the power and worship for itself . ( Cap 13) Why would the beast would want to get rid of the harlot, because it represents the worship of God , even in as an ” apostate state .” In ( verse 16 ) indicates that the federated nations of Europe will turn their back to the world church and destroy it  , thus this will be fulfilling the prophecies of Revelation 2:20-23 . Then , once the whore have been removed , then  the beast god plead and demand the worship of nations. worship of nations

The true church of God is described as ” a pure bride ”

novia pura  as pure as the harlot church ” apostate ” church apostate bride. the whore is in the desert , while the bride is in heaven . The harlot flies Satan ( 17:4 ) , while Christ adorns the bride. ( 19:8 ) . The harlot is judged for eternity , while the ” bride ” reign forever. The whore takes the bloodstain of all martyrs , while the ” bride ” is redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.  redimida

Apocalipsis 17: 1-18

APOCALIPSIS 17 y 18 representa  la gran Babilonia, que viene  a ser ” el nuevo sistema religioso , económico y político  mundial”  existente en la tierra antes el regreso de Cristo.

Condenación de la gran ramera

gran ramera

  Vino entonces uno de los siete ángeles que tenían las siete copas, y habló conmigo diciéndome: Ven acá, y te mostraré la sentencia contra la gran ramera, la que está sentada sobre muchas aguas; 2 con la cual han fornicado los reyes de la tierra, y los moradores de la tierra se han embriagado con el vino de su fornicación.

Como ya hemos leído,  anteriormente en el capitulo 16 donde estudiamos las siete copas y todos los juicios de Dios , vimos como su ira se a derramado sobre la tierra, y también la caída de Babilonia . (16:17-21) . Ahora vemos en este capitulo siguiente como uno de los siete ángeles invita a Juan a observar la caída de la gran ramera cual es el ” nuevo sistema apostata mundial”                                                                                                                                                      nuevo sistema

Apocalipsis nos hace referencia  de varias mujeres , comenzamos por

1. Jazabel,  la que comienza por introducirse como la apostasía en la Iglesia  Apo 2:20.  jesabel

2. Israel, Apo 12;1, israel

3. la ramera , el sistema mundial apostata final,  leemos en capitulo 17 y 4 , Sistema_F_Internacional

4. La Esposa, que es la Iglesia de Dios . 19:7. la espoda de dios

II. La explicacion (17:3-18) 

3 Y me llevó en el Espíritu al desierto; y vi a una mujer sentada sobre una bestia escarlata llena de nombres de blasfemia, que tenía siete cabezas y diez cuernos. 4 Y la mujer estaba vestida de púrpura y escarlata, y adornada de oro, de piedras preciosas y de perlas, y tenía en la mano un cáliz de oro lleno de abominaciones y de la inmundicia de su fornicación; 5 y en su frente un nombre escrito, un misterio: BABILONIA LA GRANDE, LA MADRE DE LAS RAMERAS Y DE LAS ABOMINACIONES DE LA TIERRA. 6 Vi a la mujer ebria de la sangre de los santos, y de la sangre de los mártires de Jesús; y cuando la vi, quedé asombrado con gran asombro. 7 Y el ángel me dijo: ¿Por qué te asombras? Yo te diré el misterio de la mujer, y de la bestia que la trae, la cual tiene las siete cabezas y los diez cuernos. 8 La bestia que has visto, era, y no es; y está para subir del abismo e ir a perdición; y los moradores de la tierra, aquellos cuyos nombres no están escritos desde la fundación del mundo en el libro de la vida, se asombrarán viendo la bestia que era y no es, y será. 9 Esto, para la mente que tenga sabiduría: Las siete cabezas son siete montes, sobre los cuales se sienta la mujer, 10 y son siete reyes. Cinco de ellos han caído; uno es, y el otro aún no ha venido; y cuando venga, es necesario que dure breve tiempo. 11 La bestia que era, y no es, es también el octavo; y es de entre los siete, y va a la perdición. 12 Y los diez cuernos que has visto, son diez reyes, que aún no han recibido reino; pero por una hora recibirán autoridad como reyes juntamente con la bestia. 13 Estos tienen un mismo propósito, y entregarán su poder y su autoridad a la bestia. 14 Pelearán contra el Cordero, y el Cordero los vencerá, porque él es Señor de señores y Rey de reyes; y los que están con él son llamados y elegidos y fieles. 15 Me dijo también: Las aguas que has visto donde la ramera se sienta, son pueblos, muchedumbres, naciones y lenguas. 16 Y los diez cuernos que viste en la bestia, éstos aborrecerán a la ramera, y la dejarán desolada y desnuda; y devorarán sus carnes, y la quemarán con fuego; 17 porque Dios ha puesto en sus corazones el ejecutar lo que él quiso: ponerse de acuerdo, y dar su reino a la bestia, hasta que se cumplan las palabras de Dios. 18 Y la mujer que has visto es la gran ciudad que reina sobre los reyes de la tierra.

1. La mujer  whore

Vamos al versiculo 18 “Y la mujer que has visto es la gran ciudad que reina sobre los reyes de la tierra”. Aquí nos queda  muy claro que se trata de una cuidad, que reinaba sobre la tierra en los días de Juan. Las siete cabezas del versículo 3, ellas son símbolos de montanas como también vemos en el versículo 9. Se podría decir con toda certeza que es Roma., porque esta cuidad esta situada sobre siete colinas. Cabe recalcar que cuando se escribía este libro de Apocalipsis , Roma era quien reinaba sobre los reyes de la tierra.

2. La bestia  la bestia

Si bien recordamos el capitulo 13 nos damos cuenta que es la misma bestia o sea el anticristo. Este gobernante mundial que nos presenta el capitulo 8 saldrá del abismo , dándonos a entender que se levantara entre los muertos. Esta bestia de la que se describe aquí se nos presenta vestida de escarlata , relacionándola con el dragón, que no es otro que Satanás veer 12:3. Esta bestia tiene siete cabezas y diez cuernos, que también se identifica con Satanás veer 12:3, y 13:1 . Si ahora leemos el versículo 10 vemos que estas siete cabezas son siete reyes. igual que siete montanas . Y los diez cuernos que nos hablan en el versículo 10  son otros diez reyes. Por eso que la bestia se asemeja al anticristo así como a su persona. Estos “siete reyes” podría traducirse  como “siete reinos”  asegurándonos que el reino de la bestia sera el séptimo reino mundial, aquel que aun el mundo no a visto.

3. Las siete cabezas  las siete cabeza

Ya hemos repasado sobre las cabezas y hemos aprendido que son siete montanas  ver (ver 9 ), y los siete reyes o reinos (ver 10)  Egipto, Asiria , Babilonia, Persia, y Grecia  eran los cinco reinos caídos. Y “Roma” era el reino que era en los tiempos de Juan , así de esa manera podemos saber que el reino que aun no a venido es el de la bestia o sea el séptimo reino.

4. Los diez cuernos prophecy_mark-of-the-beast

De estos diez reyes mas,  nos los explica en el ver 12., donde nos hablan del resurgimiento del imperio Romano es una anologia de los diez dedos en los pies de la imagen de Daniel 2:36-45  . Todo esto para Juan seria muy extraño porque en sus días aun estos reyes no habían recibido su poder, porque esta preparado para los últimos días, cuando resurja la federación Europea quien estará encabezada por la bestia cuando llegue al poder. Así,  que sin duda alguna,  ya sabemos que  estos diez reyes respaldaran a la bestia en su batalla contra Cristo y los santos cual con la ayuda de la bestia , destruirá a la gran ramera.

5. Las aguas naciones

Las naciones del mundo son las aguas donde se sienta la ramera. (ver 15). Y esta ramera tendrá influencia total sobre toda la tierra tanto en la política, como en  la  economía, y como también en la  religión.

III. La aplicacion l gran ramera

Es Roma la ramera que representara la iglesia mundial “apostata” de los últimos días. En los últimos tiempos se organizara un nuevo sistema de Iglesia mundial. Y esta “ramera” sera involucrada en todo sistema político, económico del mundo y con la ayuda de la bestia se convertiría en un gran poder. Esta bestia tendrá todo el respaldo del mundo o mejor dicho de lo diez reyes al cabalgar en victoria. (Apo 6:1-2) Las naciones de Europa vendrán a una unión. Durante la primer MITAD de la tribulación es donde la escena en el capitulo 17 toma lugar , aunque ahí todavía la bestia no se mostrado aun con su verdadero carácter satánico. Pero esto solo sera hasta la mitad de la tribulación, porque esta bestia querrá tomar todo el poder y la adoración para si misma. (cap 13) Razón por la que la bestia querrá deshacerse de la ramera, por cuanto representa la adoración a Dios, aunque sea de manera “apostata” . En el  (ver 16 ) indica que la naciones federadas de Europa se volveran contra de la iglesia mundial y la destruirán, cumpliendo así las profecías  de Apo 2:20-23. Entonces , una vez se ha eliminado a la ramera, la bestia se declarara dios y exigirá la adoración de las naciones.

La iglesia verdadera de Dios se describí como ” una novia pura ” novia pura mientras a la ramera como la iglesia “apostata” iglesia-apostata . la ramera esta en el desierto , mientras que la novia esta en el cielo . La ramera se adorna de Satanás (17:4) , mientras que Cristo adorna a la novia. (19:8) . La ramera es juzgada por la eternidad, mientras que la “novia ” reinara por siempre . La ramera lleva la mancha de sangre de todos los mártires, mientras que la “novia” es redimida por la sangre del Cordero. redimida

Revelation 16:1-21


We will be reviewing this chapter which is chapter 16 1:21 very careful because of the magnitude of the signs and symbols it contains, so we all need to pay close attention to what they all mean.

The tops of the Wrath of God    

The seven angels bowls of wrath    agenles

I. First Cup
I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God. 2 So the first went and poured out his vial upon the earth, and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image.

It should be noted here in this great chapter that there is similarity with the eighth chapter . As we remember the similarity of the trumpet judgments and the glasses or the bowls of the wrath of God are very tight even though it appears that the judgment of the glasses are more severe than many of trumpets , but in fact the two judgments affect the same things.

It says here that a great voice , who do you think who’s this voice is ? of course we all imagine the  ( voice of Christ) He  tells the seven angels  to pour on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God. These bowls full of the wrath of God brought malignant ulcer and pestilence upon men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These  cups seems that these sores greatly afflicted men, but still will not surrender to God, nor humble themselves and repent .

II . second cup

3 The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea , and it became blood as of a dead man: and every living thing died that was in the sea.

The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea making the sea all its water  in blood mar en sangre. The similarity of this passage we can see it in chapter 8:8 where we see the second angel when playing second trumpet and as a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea . , And look what it says ” the third part of the sea became blood “.  At this time we see only the third part of it turned into blood while the second shed vial upon the sea which became all blood,  and every living thing died that was in the sea.

Third Cup

4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters , and they became blood .

This verse clearly shows us that even more blood was to be shed because it  got the rivers and the fountains of waters which the third cup took place. In other words it’s like all the waters of the earth were to become blood.  I believe because of much blood  la segunda copa de la ira de Dios that has been shed on earth is the reason why man on earth will drink blood himself. Likewise commanded by Pharaoh to drown all Hebrew children is why all his army drowned in the sea. Another example is that as we read the story of Esther, we see  that Haman built a gallows to hang Mordecai and we all  know how Haman and his sons finished hanged with his own rope . This is called the righteous judgment of God .

5 And I heard the angel of the waters say , Thou art righteous , O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus things .6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.7 and I heard another voice  out of the altar say, Even so , Lord God Almighty , your judgments are true and just .

We see here in verse seven souls under the altar are now satisfied because God avenge their blood.

III . fourth Cup

8 And the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not neither gave him glory.

In these next two trials of verse eight and nine is where we see the fourth and fifth heavenly angel involving with the order that was given.  When the fourth Angel poured out his vial upon the sun, he makes  heaven fire and there was given unto him to scorch men with fire. Once again we see the similarity there in chapter 8:12 where part of the sun is obscured. So , we see that the sun will burned men because God will allowed this to be so .

Fifth Cup

10 And the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast , and his kingdom was full of darkness , and they gnawed their tongues for pain , 11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores , and repented not of their works.

This fifth Angel brings darkness to the land , but we do not know for sure if this darkness goes throughout the world,  or  only covers the land in darkness where the kingdom or the throne of the beast is at . We’re not sure of this darkness on how would covered the earth, but what we do know is that Satan is the prince of darkness, which we believe is the reason and cause of this darkness invading his kingdom.

IV. sixth Cup

12 And the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the east . 13 And I saw from the dragon’s mouth , and the mouth of the beast , and the mouth of the false prophet , three unclean spirits like frogs ; 14 For they are the spirits of devils , working miracles, which go forth unto the kings land around the world , to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

These have a huge similarity on the book of Exodus when God dried the Red Sea to save his nation from the Egyptians. And now we see that the new dry waters of the great river Euphrates will allows armies battle at Armageddon. ” The mountain of Menguido ” is what the word of Armageddon means . This large dry river is one of the largest fields in the world battle and is precisely here where the battle between Christ and the anti – Christ was fought .

On verses 12-16 it well describes the three unclean spirits that come out of the mouth of the “dragon” of the “beast ” and ” false prophet” a it says they are like frogs , this does not mean they are literal frogs. Frogs which in shown here are actually demonic spirits that Satan will use to deal with a large army , large numerous army most likely largest in the history of the world and this will take place to combat the Lord. Read (1 Kings 22:20-28 , Ex 8:5-7 , 1 Tim 4:1). But no matter,  the outcome of this great battle is in chapter 19 : 11-21 . Read : Zephaniah 3:8 Joel 3; 9-14, Zachary Isaiah 24:1-8 12 e .

Promise to the saints on earth at this time :

15 Behold , I come as a thief . Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

Christ asks us to keep us from the world and satanic system contamination . ( Rev. 18: 4) as also tells us to keep our ( 2 Cor 7:1 ) clean clothes

V. Mystery of God given 

16 And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. 17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven , from the throne , saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices and thunders and lightnings and a great earthquake , such a great earthquake, such as had never been since men were upon the earth. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away and the mountains were not found. 21 And from heaven fell upon men a great hail, like a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail , since that plague was exceedingly great.

If we go back to chapter 10:6 -7 God promised that ” the mystery of God ” would end when the seventh angel emptied the cup, and now here we see this fulfilled . So far we have seen judgments touching nature and humanity, but not the ” mastermind ” behind all the evil who is Satan himself. But now we see that from here on it and own Christ fights the religious, political and financial system and the Armageddon Satan .

When bowls were all emptied, the throne in heaven came together to say ” Is all Made ! the mystery is over, and now the souls under the altar would not ask again ” how much longer ”

We see a major earthquake  “great”  earthquake  gran terremoto which divides into three parts the land of Israel . read ( 11:8 ) so we read in Zechariah 14:4 , this will not be the only city destroyed  because other great cities fall as the great Babylon comes to its end trial. This is the apostate church of the last days of Babylon (Rev 18) which is the new political-economic system of the beast.

Now we also see hail with grains of 125 lb , this was what was a talent of silver in the NT. In the same way we see in Lev 24:6 that the blasphemer is stoned to death and also apply for the judgment day of the hailstones .

Apocalipsis 16:1-21

Iremos repasando este capitulo muy desmenuzadamente por la magnitud de las senales y símbolos que contiene, prestemos mucha atencion .
 Las copas de la Ira de Dios agenles            las siete copas de la ira
 
I. Primera copa  
Oí una gran voz que decía desde el templo a los siete ángeles: Id y derramad sobre la tierra las siete copas de la ira de Dios. 2 Fue el primero, y derramó su copa sobre la tierra, y vino una úlcera maligna y pestilente sobre los hombres que tenían la marca de la bestia, y que adoraban su imagen. 
 
las copas 2

 Cabe recalcar aquí en este gran capitulo la semejanza que existe  con el capitulo ocho. Como recordaremos la similitud de los juicios de la trompeta y de las copas son muy igualadas a pesar que aparenta que el juicio de las copas son muchos mas severos que de las trompetas,  aunque en efecto afectan los dos juicios las mismas cosas.

Dice aquí que una gran voz , de quien piensa usted seria esta voz ? pues muy seguro ( La voz de Cristo ) le dice a los siete ángeles que derramen sobre la tierra las siete copas de la ira de Dios  y estas copas llenas de la ira de Dios trajo ulcera maligna y pestilencia sobre los hombres que tenían la marca de la bestia y sobre los que adoraban su imagen  las copas Parece ser que estas llagas afligirán enormemente a los hombres,  pero aun así no se rendirán a Dios, ni se humillaran ni se arrepentirán .

II. Segunda copa 

3 El segundo ángel derramó su copa sobre el mar, y éste se convirtió en sangre como de muerto; y murió todo ser vivo que había en el mar. 

El segundo ángel derrama su copa sobre el mar convirtiéndolo en sangre   mar en sangre. La similitud de este pasaje la vemos en el capitulo 8:8 donde vemos el segundo ángel cuando toca la segunda trompeta  y como una gran montaña ardiendo en fuego fue precipitada en el mar; y la tercera parte del mar se convirtió en sangre., o sea que solo una tercera parte se convirtió en sangre mientras que ya en este tiempo la segunda copa derramada sobre el mar convirtió en sangre como de muerto, y murió todo ser vivo que había en el mar.

Tercera Copa  

4 El tercer ángel derramó su copa sobre los ríos, y sobre las fuentes de las aguas, y se convirtieron en sangre.

Este versículo nos muestra claramente que aun se derramaría mas sangre porque ya a llegado hasta los ríos y sobre las fuentes de las aguas   tercera copa En otras palabras  es como que toda las aguas se convirtiesen en sangre. Mucha sangre se ha derramado sobre la tierra por esa razón el hombre beberá sangre. De la misma manera que Faraón manda orden para ahogar a los ninos Hebreos es por eso que todo su ejercito muere ahogado en el mar. Otro ejemplo, como hemos muchos leído la historia de Ester sabemos que Aman construyo una horca para colgar a Mardoqueo y como termino Aman y sus hijos ? ahorcados con su propia soga.  Esto se llama el justo juicio de Dios .

5 Y oí al ángel de las aguas, que decía: Justo eres tú, oh Señor, el que eres y que eras, el Santo, porque has juzgado estas cosas.6 Por cuanto derramaron la sangre de los santos y de los profetas, también tú les has dado a beber sangre; pues lo merecen.7 También oí a otro, que desde el altar decía: Ciertamente, Señor Dios Todopoderoso, tus juicios son verdaderos y justos.

Vemos aquí en el versículo siete que   las almas debajo del altar están ahora ya satisfechos porque Dios a vengado su sangre.

III. Cuarta Copa  

8 El cuarto ángel derramó su copa sobre el sol, al cual fue dado quemar a los hombres con fuego. 9 Y los hombres se quemaron con el gran calor, y blasfemaron el nombre de Dios, que tiene poder sobre estas plagas, y no se arrepintieron para darle gloria.

En estos dos próximos juicios del versículo ocho y nueve es donde vemos el cuarto y quinto ángel involucrando los cielos por la orden que se les a dado. Cuando el cuarto angel derrama su copa lo hace sobre el sol  cielo fuego y le fue dado quemar a los hombres con fuego. Una vez mas vemos al similitud que hay en el capitulo 8:12 donde una parte del sol se oscurece. El sol quemara a los hombres porque Dios asi lo a permitido .

Quinta Copa 

10 El quinto ángel derramó su copa sobre el trono de la bestia; y su reino se cubrió de tinieblas, y mordían de dolor sus lenguas, 11 y blasfemaron contra el Dios del cielo por sus dolores y por sus úlceras, y no se arrepintieron de sus obras.

Este quinto Ángel trae oscuridad a la tierra, pero no sabemos con certeza si esta oscuridad acapara toda la tierra o solo cubre en tinieblas el reino del trono de la bestia  trono de la bestia  No olvidemos Satanás es el príncipe de las tinieblas razón de mas  por la cual la oscuridad invadirá su reino.

IV. Sexta Copa

12 El sexto ángel derramó su copa sobre el gran río Eufrates; y el agua de éste se secó, para que estuviese preparado el camino a los reyes del oriente. 13 Y vi salir de la boca del dragón, y de la boca de la bestia, y de la boca del falso profeta, tres espíritus inmundos a manera de ranas; 14 pues son espíritus de demonios, que hacen señales, y van a los reyes de la tierra en todo el mundo, para reunirlos a la batalla de aquel gran día del Dios Todopoderoso.

Estos vesiculosos tienen una enorme similitud cuando Dios seco el Mar Rojo para salvar a su nación de los Egipcios. Y ahora vemos que seca de nuevas las aguas del gran rió Eufrates permitiendo que los ejércitos se enfrenten en el Armagedon .  “La montana del Menguido” es el siginificado de la palabra Armagedon. Este gran rio seco es  unos de lo campos de batalla mas grande del mundo  es aqui precisamente donde se librara la batalla entre Cristo y el anti-cristo.

Aquí en estos vesiculosos  del doce al dieciséis describe  tres espíritus inmundos que salen de la boca del “dragon” de la  “bestia” y del  “falso profeta”   a manera de ranas,esto no significa que son ranas literales, la rana lo que en realidad esta aquí representado son los espíritus demoníacos  que Satanás usara  para enfrentar un gran  ejercito es mas sera  el mas numeroso y grande de la historia del mundo y esto lo hará para luchar contra el Senor .   Leer ( 1 R 22:20-28, Ex 8:5-7 , 1 Ti 4:1) . Pero no tema que el resultado de esta gran batalla se ve en el capitulo 19 : 11-21 . Leer : Sofonias 3:8 Joel 3;9-14, Zacarias 12 e Isaias 24:1-8 .

Promesa a los santos de la tierra en este tiempo:

 15 He aquí, yo vengo como ladrón. Bienaventurado el que vela, y guarda sus ropas, para que no ande desnudo, y vean su verguenza. 

Cristo nos pide que nos guardemos del mundo y de la contaminación del sistema satánico. (Apo 18: 4 ) como también nos dice que guardemos nuestros vestidos limpios (2 Co 7:1)

V. Misterio de Dios determinado 

16 Y los reunió en el lugar que en hebreo se llama Armagedón.  17 El séptimo ángel derramó su copa por el aire; y salió una gran voz del templo del cielo, del trono, diciendo: Hecho está. 18 Entonces hubo relámpagos y voces y truenos, y un gran temblor de tierra, un terremoto tan grande, cual no lo hubo jamás desde que los hombres han estado sobre la tierra. 19 Y la gran ciudad fue dividida en tres partes, y las ciudades de las naciones cayeron; y la gran Babilonia vino en memoria delante de Dios, para darle el cáliz del vino del ardor de su ira. 20 Y toda isla huyó, y los montes no fueron hallados. 21 Y cayó del cielo sobre los hombres un enorme granizo como del peso de un talento; y los hombres blasfemaron contra Dios por la plaga del granizo; porque su plaga fue sobremanera grande.

Si  regresamos al capitulo 10:6 -7 Dios prometió que ” el misterio de Dios” finalizaría cuando el séptimo ángel vaciara la copa, ahora aquí ya lo vemos cumplido. Hasta ahora hemos visto los juicios tocando la naturaleza y la humanidad , pero no la  “mente maestra”  detrás de todo el mal quien es el mismo Satanás. Pero ya vemos que desde aquí en adelante el mismo y propio Cristo se enfrentara al sistema  religioso, y político y financiero   el amargedon  de Satanás .

Cuando se vacía ya al final la séptima y ultima copa el trono y el cielo se unen para decir ” Hecho esta ! el misterio se ha concluido, y ya las almas debajo del altar ya no preguntaran mas Hasta cuando ?

Vemos un gran terremoto  gran terremoto el cual divide a Israel en tres partes leer (11:8) también lo leemos en Zacarias 14:4 , esta no sera la única cuidad juzgada , porque otras grandes ciudades caerán y la gran Babilonia viene al fin su juicio. Esta es la iglesia apostata de los últimos días, la Babilonia de  (Apo 18 ) cual es el nuevo sistema político económico de la bestia.

Ahora también vemos granizos con granos de 125 lb, esto era lo que pesaba un talento de plata en el NT. De la misma manera que vemos en Lev 24:6 que al blasfemo se apedreaba hasta la muerte así mismo sucederá en el día del juicio de los granizos.

Revelation 15:1-8

Revelation 15 : 1-4 siete angeles 

The seven angels with the seven plagues
And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven plagues , the last, because in them he has consummated the wrath of God . 2 And I saw a sea of ​​glass mingled with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast , over his image and over the number of his name , stand on the sea of ​​glass with harps of God. 3 And they sang the song of Moses the servant of God , and the song of the Lamb:
Great and marvelous are thy works , Lord God Almighty !
Just and true are your ways , O King of nations !
4 O Lord ! Who shall not fear and glorify your name ?
For thou only art holy ;
because ALL NATIONS WILL COME
And worship before you ,
for your righteous acts have been revealed .

Revelation ( 15:1-4 )
John sees another sign in heaven, now is was great and wonderful , he sees seven angels with seven plagues , and said they were the last because in them the wrath has been accomplished , the wrath of God . That must be awful these last plagues of the wrath of God. John also saw the victors in Christ who achieved victory over the attacks were the Romans ( politicians and rulers ) about Christians , it does not speak of Roman citizens , but if any citizen adored Rome also share their punishment .

Now,  those who are singing a song of “Victory” are those who have conquered the beast and his image ! Many of these are Christians who gave their lives for Christ and never denied it as their only king . These were not subjected to bear the mark of the beast or worship the image and thus lost their lives. Many of those who are standing on the sea of ​​glass in heaven are those who endured the most cruel punishments but always confessed Christ as Lord.  “Suffer with Christ , we shall reign with Him” ( 2 Tim 2:12).
Here is the song of Moses while in chapter 14:3 we see that the 144,000 sang a new song that no one else could sing . This song of Moses sure would be the song of the victory of Israel in the Red Sea in Exodus 15. The Jews sang the song of Moses when they went back to their land after the captivity , perhaps Psalm 118 was written after the return from Babylon . Chapter 12 Isaiah expresses the time that Israel be gathered from all parts of world and relocated to their land.

II The cups and their meaning ( 15:5-8 )
 After this I looked , and the temple of the tabernacle was opened in heaven , 6 and left the temple the seven angels that had the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen , and girded around their chests with golden sashes . 7 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. 8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and His power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed .

In chapter 10:7 of the  book of Revelation we have to remember that Christ announced that the shedding of these cups the “Mystery of God” would be completed and that there would be no further delay. In the last seven final judgments God completed his anger, while Satan is pouring all his evil forces against believers and Jews very special. (12:12 ) . The beast has taken the earthly temple , but can not touch the heavenly temple and all it can do is blaspheme. ( 13:6 )

We see again the Temple of Heaven is opened , the opening of the temple is a reminder that God will keep his covenant with his people , Israel. Many Jews true  believers would be protected by God, while others will die by faith together with many nations .

Seven angels having the seven plagues from the temple of God , agenles these seven bowls are poured one after the other , this means that each cup produces its own effect one after the other , so the glasses have an end time different . The tops of the seven cups have poured almost entirely . The objective of the glasses described in chapter 16:6 ” For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets , and thou hast given them blood to drink as they deserve .”
The gowns of these angels means ” holiness and royalty.” The white linen dress was worn by priests in the OT, and the golden belt means king. This should remind us that we are ” kings and priests” (Rev 16) royal priesthood.
The bowls of the wrath of God are given to the angels for one of the four living creatures . These seven angels have them delivered these seven bowls and they contemplate the judgments of God on earth. Seven as we have learned is the number of correctly,of plentiful . The heavenly temple is now filled with smoke from the glory of God. The first thing that comes to mind as the smoke from the glory of God is when we remember that in the OT (Ex 40:34 , 35) when the tabernacle was dedicated the full glory of God manifested  , so too did the glory of God manifested on the OT temple dedication ( 2Ch 7:1-4 ) .

Now,  we see that neither saint nor angel anyone could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished. I mean, nobody could intercede in prayers for world events. Since God’s patience had run out and there was no opportunity to intercede for anyone. The long-suffering of God had come to an end !

There is not much certainty what the exact order of the stamps with the events but the great scholars and students of prophecy believe that the first six seals are opened during the first three and a half years , and the seventh seal which includes trumpets and bowls covering the last three and a half years .

Apocalipsis 15: 1-8

Apocalipsis 15: 1- 4

Los siete ángeles con las siete plagas   siete angeles

Y vi otra señal en el cielo, grande y maravillosa: siete ángeles que tenían siete plagas, las últimas, porque en ellas se ha consumado el furor de Dios. Vi también como un mar de cristal mezclado con fuego, y a los que habían salido victoriosos sobre la bestia, sobre su imagen y sobre el número de su nombre, en pie sobre el mar de cristal, con arpas de Dios. Y cantaban* el cántico de Moisés, siervo de Dios, y el cántico del Cordero, diciendo:

¡Grandes y maravillosas son tus obras, oh Señor Dios, Todopoderoso!
¡Justos y verdaderos son tus caminos, oh Rey de las naciones!
¡Oh Señor! ¿Quién no temerá y glorificará tu nombre?
Pues sólo tú eres santo;
porque todas las naciones vendrán
y adoraran en tu presencia,
pues tus justos juicios han sido revelados.

Juan ve otra señal en el cielo, está ahora era grande y maravillosa; el ve siete ángeles que tenían siete plagas, y dicen que eran las ultimas porque ya en ellas se ha consumado el furor, la ira de Dios.  Que terrible debe de ser estas últimas plagas del furor de Dios. También Juan pude ver los vencedores en Cristo los que alcanzaron la victoria sobre los ataques que produjeron los Romanos ( los políticos y los gobernantes ) sobre los Cristianos, no hablamos de los ciudadanos Romanos, pero si algún ciudadano adoraba a Roma también compartiría de su castigo.

Ahora estos los que están cantando un cantico de “Victoria” son los que han vencido a la bestia y a su imagen! Muchos de estos son Cristianos que entregaron su vida por amor a Cristo y nunca lo negaron como su único rey . Estos no se sometieron a llevar la marca de la bestia ni adoran a la imagen y así perdieron sus vidas. Muchos de estos los que están parados sobre el mar de vidrio celestial son los que soportaron los castigos más crueles pero siempre confesaron a Cristo como Señor. Sufrimos con Cristo, reinaremos con El (2 Ti 2:12) .

Aquí tenemos el cantico de Moisés mientras que en el capitulo 14:3 vemos que los 144,000 entonaron un nuevo canto que nadie más podía cantar. Este cantico de Moisés muy seguro que sería el cantico de  la victoria de Israel en el Mar Rojo, en Éxodo 15. Los judíos entonaban el cantico de Moisés cuando iban de regreso a su tierra después de la cautividad , Salmos 118 quizás se escribió después del regreso de Babilonia .En el capítulo 12 de Isaías  se manifiesta el tiempo en que Israel se recogerá de todas las partes del mundo y se reubicaría en su tierra.

II Las copas y su significado (15:5-8)  las siete copas de la ira

 Después de estas cosas miré, y se abrió el templo del tabernáculo del testimonio en el cielo, y salieron del templo los siete ángeles que tenían las siete plagas, vestidos de lino puro y resplandeciente, y ceñidos alrededor del pecho con cintos de oro. Entonces uno de los cuatro seres vivientes dio a los siete ángeles siete copas de oro llenas del furor de Dios, que vive por los siglos de los siglos. Y el templo se llenó con el humo de la gloria de Dios y de su poder; y nadie podía entrar al templo hasta que se terminaran las siete plagas de los siete ángeles.

En el capítulo 10:7 de este mismo libro de Apocalipsis usted recordara que Cristo anuncio que con el derramamiento de estas copas el “Misterio de Dios “ se completaría y que no habría más demora. En los últimos siete juicios finales Dios completara su ira, mientras que Satanás está derramando todas sus fuerzas del mal contra los creyentes y contra los judíos muy en especial.(12:12). miesntras que tambien la bestia ha tomado el templo terrenal, pero no puede tocar el templo celestial y todo lo que puede hacer es blasfemar . (13:6)

Vemos que de nuevo se abre el templo del cielo, esta apertura del templo es un recordatorio de que Dios guardara su pacto con su pueblo, Israel. Muchos judíos creyentes huirán donde Dios los protegerá, y otros moriran por fe juntos con muchos gentiles.

Siete ángeles que tenían las siete plagas salen del templo de Dios, estas siete copas se derraman una detrás de la otra,  esto quiere decir que cada copa produce su propio efecto una detrás de la otra, por lo tanto las copas tienen un tiempo de finalización distintas. Las copas de las siete yaces ya se cumplieron casi en su  totalidad . El objetivo de las copas se describe en capitulo 16:6  Por cuanto derramaron la sangre de los santos y de los profetas, también tú les has dado a beber sangre; pues lo merecen”.

Los vestidos de estos ángeles significa “santidad y realeza”  agenles. El lino blanco era el vestido usado por los sacerdotes en el AT, y el cinto dorado significa el rey . Esto nos debe recordar que somos  “reyes y sacerdotes”  (Ap 16) real sacerdocio.

Las copas de la ira de Dios son entregadas a los ángeles por uno de los cuatro seres vivientes. Estos siete Ángeles  les han entregado estas siete copas y ellos contemplaran los juicios de Dios en la tierra. Siete como hemos aprendido es el numero de la plenitud. El templo celestial ahora está lleno del humo de la gloria de Dios. Lo primero que nos viene a la mente en cuanto al humo de la gloria de Dios es cuando recordamos que en el  AT en  (Ex 40:34, 35) cuando se dedico el tabernáculo la gloria de Dios lo lleno, así también sucedió en la dedicación del templo del AT (2Cr 7:1-4).

Ahora vemos que nadie ni santo ni ángel podían entrar al templo hasta que se terminara las siete plagas de los siete Ángeles. O sea, nadie podía interceder por los acontecimientos mundiales. Ya la paciencia de Dios se había agotado y no había más oportunidad para interceder por nadie. La longanimidad de Dios había llegado a su fin !

No hay mucha certeza en cuál sería la orden exacta los de los sellos con los sucesos pero los grandes eruditos y estudiantes de las profecías piensan que los primeros seis sellos se abrirán durante  los primeros tres años  y medio, y que el séptimo sello que incluye las trompetas y las copas abarca los últimos tres años y medios.

English Bible Study Book Revelation 14:1-20

Revelation 14:1-5
The Song of the 144,000  el cantico

I looked, and behold, the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his name and his Father’s name written on their forehead .2 And I heard a voice from heaven like sound of many waters , and as the voice of a great thunder: and the voice which I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps . 3 And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty -four thousand who were redeemed from the earth.4 These are the which were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb wherever he goes . These were redeemed from among men , being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb , 5 and in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

John says : And I looked . Where does John is  looking at , heaven or earth ?

Well, being that John is seeing Jesus Christ , the Lamb, has to be in heaven, because at this stage of events in tribulation , Jesus Christ will not had yet come a second time to land . His second coming will occur at the end of the Tribulation , exactly as it is told in Revelation chapter 19. Mount Zion which the text reads, it is a reference to heaven . The Lamb is standing in heaven. But even if this scene is in heaven, then is looking ahead to the coming kingdom on earth. Also, note that not only the text says that with him 144,000 were standing . These 144,000 are the same that were sealed by God in Revelation chapter 7, but now they are no longer on earth but in heaven. The Bible does not provide us with the information about how they got to heaven.  It seems as if they have  perished in the persecution of the Antichrist and were martyred or died of a natural death , or perhaps even were translated to heaven without seeing death .

The character of the 144,000 is now described . The fact that he describes as ” not defiled with women ” and were ” virgin ” does not mean physically, but spiritually. Those who dwell on the earth in that day will be filled with the sin of spiritual fornication. , And apparently these 144,000 seals will not be contaminated . They will be marked with the name of the Father and not the beast .

 The message of the three Angels apocalipsis 14 photo

And I saw flying through the midst of heaven another angel , having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people , 7 Saying with a loud voice , Fear God , and give glory , for the hour of his judgment is come : and worship him that made ​​heaven and earth, the sea and springs of waters.8 another angel followed , saying, fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand , 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God , which has been poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone before the holy angels and of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever. And they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name 12 Here is the patience of the saints who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus 13 I heard a voice from heaven saying , Write, Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord . Yes , says the Spirit , they will rest from their labors, and their works follow them .

Each angel has a different ad , God still uses people to give messages and in recent times, times of judgment God will use angels.  The great message of these angels ” The Everlasting Gospel ” they are representing  God as the Creator, Savior, and warns that judgment is coming soon.  They are advertising to fear God , tell them to give glory to God and not the beast or Satan. Also, the final call to warn all who worship the beast and his image,  marcadosand one that has received the mark of his name . ( Ro 1:25). They also announce the fall of Babylon which is the political apostate religious system headed beast world . Read ( Jer 51:7,8 and 50:14,15,38 )

We see the seven bowls of judgment that is the outpouring of the wrath of God (Rev. 15-18) There will be no grace or mercy mixed with anger. The angel pronounces good warning to those who bear the mark of the beast will suffer eternal torments without rest or relief. Unlike the followers of the Lamb, for they rest from their labors and be blessed . Believers must be patient as the word tells us (Luke 21:19).

The land is mowed

14 I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sickle temple aguda.15 And another angel came out , crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come , for the harvest of the earth is madura.16 and he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle into the earth , and the earth was segada.17 another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven , he also having a sickle aguda.18 and another angel came out from the altar , which had power over fire, and cried with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle , saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the earth, for her grapes are maduras.19 and the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great winepress grapes of the wrath of God.20 and the winepress was trodden outside the city , and blood came out of the winepress up to the horses’ bridles , for one thousand six hundred furlongs.

Here we read how John saw Christ in a white cloud with a golden crown and a sharp sickle  hozto the earth to reap the harvest . The first time Christ came to earth  He came as sower of the seed, then and His second coming He will come as the reaper, bringing judgment to the world. “The harvest of the earth is ripe .” This shows that God knows exactly when and who to judge . For centuries and centuries and with all God patiently been waiting for the seeds of iniquity bear fruit (James 1:14-15 ) .

Then you see the great war of Armageddon
1. The beast attacked Israel.
Two . God defeated Russia
Three . The beast defeated Egypt
April . Both defeated enemies are removed
May . The beast is set and global ruling deity
6. The beast reigns even in Jerusalem
7. The armies move towards Palestine, fighting the beast
8 . The Son of Man will appear at the time and the armies will unite to fight against Christ

In verses 17-18 describes a man cutting bunches of grapes from the vine. Now that the new global system wicked are ” clusters of the earth.” And Christ is the true vine . Although Israel was sown for the holy vine of God , unfortunately , sad to say it but produced bitter fruits . Not only were disobedient and were against the word of God but also rejected the true Messiah and accepted the false Christ , why they had to suffer bitter consequences .

We come to verse 20 where read as gives chills the blood to run long distance, 320 km outside the city of Jerusalem and will be deep as the distance of the bridles of the horses until I strain ! . That’s where God’s wrath is poured out .

There is no doubt that all who reject the truth and the gospel of God will suffer terribly judgment on that terrible day and roughing the wrath of God .

Every day we get closer to this end “Armageddon”  derrota a egipto which John speaks in this chapter , as is already the emergence of Europe and Egypt , including the nations of Asia, adding the European federation. What we must be sure and confident to take the defeat Satan and his allies. For God gives certain word and true to the final war The winding forever with his demons and Satan with all his followers.
