Revelation 22:1-21 God’s Last Message to Humankind

Revelation 22:1-5 

rios

And he showed me a pure river of water of life , clear as crystal river , flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb . 2 In the middle of the city street , and on either side of the river stood the tree of life , bearing twelve fruits, yielding its fruit every month : and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations . 3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it , and His servants shall serve him: 4 And they shall see his face, and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there , and did not need the light of a lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light : and they shall reign for ever and ever .

Old things are in the past , the old earth and the old heaven too, sin is totally eradicated by the great judgment of God. Now his people enjoy every blessing , peace , harmony , brotherhood , and they are all each and everyone called by new names specially given by the Lord ,  they will live  where there will be no more night because the Lord will illuminate , and reign for eternity. The picture of eternal life in these verses indicates that we will be busy serving God for all eternity. We will both serve Him (v. 3) and reign with Him (v.5). Since He is an infinite God, we can be sure He will have infinite things for us to do as we reign there forever. The phrase, “they shall see his face,” means that, as believers, we will be granted an audience with the King on a regular basis.What a beautiful promise of Jesus and what a beautiful place to live till eternity,  don’t you think !!!

The coming of Christ is near

(Revelation 22:6)

revelation 22,6

6 And he said to me, These sayings are faithful and true. And the Lord , the God of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place . 7 Behold , I come quickly ! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.

The Lord clearly tells John ” I’m coming soon! and He says it as a warning, because He is warning us to take care not to sin no more.

” Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” The Lord clearly wants us to  take care not to lose our salvation our entrance to the eternal life. He does not want any of us not even one to perish in the day of judgment . The Lord wants to save us all from the torment of eternal hell , which is the purpose of his  human sacrifice by dying on the cross, and therefore , reason why He also ask John to write  this last prophecy as for a last call which we have read and studied in the chapters of Revelation 1 through 22 . When Jesus repeated “I am coming soon ! He meant that after all the events that are yet to happen happened, for sure He will come ! He never mentions date neither the day nor the hour but He gives us many signs and road map as instructions of what would take place before the end of time , He sure has explained in details all the events that will soon take palce on earth and  He wants us to be ready for the big day .

John was asked not to seal the prophecy of this book :

(Revelations 22:8-10) 

juan

 I , John, am the one who heard and saw these things . And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things . 9 And he said to me, See thou do it not because I am a fellow servant of thy brethren the prophets , and of them which keep the sayings of this book . Worship God . 10 And said unto me , Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is near .

The prophet Daniel as we read on 12:4 is asked to seal the book, while John was told not to do it ! And he tells us why: BECAUSE THE TIME IS NEAR ! The prophecies of Daniel looked very distant while John’s  nearby.

(Revelation 22:11)

revelation 22, 11

11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous , let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still .

Here the Lord clearly is asking us to STOP and not to continue to practice sin , He predicts the fate of sinners , while He says that by  practicing justice, holiness, faithfulness will bring us to this holy city .  He alerts us but does not prohibit us anything, we still have free will and  if sin is  what your heart wants to radicate on,  then you’ll  know the consequences which are as  we all know ” the wages of sin is death “, while the practice of justice is eternal life .

(Revelation 22:12-14)

remarkable 
12 Behold, I am coming quickly , and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work .
We will be rewarded according to our works , so Christ said it and so will ! We again see that “I am coming soon ! The Lord is with us alerting and warning us emputo of what is about to happen and wants all be prepared to not have to suffer in the final judgment of God. Blessed be Jesus Christ our Redeemer !13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. 14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have right to the tree of life , and may enter through the gates into the city.

As we have read before,  the Alpha and Omega is the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet , also we know that Christ is the first and the last , the beginning and the end , He was before the creation in eternity past , and will be present in eternity future. He is the author and finisher of all things , because Jesus Christ is the first and the last , is the one who created all things, He is in control of all things , He is upholding all things , He is LIKE NO OTHER , HE IS EVERYTHING !

And with a God like him, we do not need anything else, because no one else is better than him. If you have Jesus Christ IN YOUR HEART you have for sure eternal life,  if you do not have Jesus Christ in heart , for what awaits you is an eternity burning in hell for all the wickedness,  and addition  to that , if do not have Jesus Christ as your king and savior your missing everything !

Jesus shed His precious blood to wash away the sins of all who trust in Him as Savior. Those who have received Christ as Savior , have  washed their clothes in the blood of Christ . That is why the Lord says: “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have right to the tree of life , and to enter the gates of the city. ” Blessed be the Lord ”

The wages of sin :

(Revelation 22:15- 17) 

revelation 22,17

15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie . 16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches . I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star . 17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come . And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him who thirsts come and whoever wishes , let him take the water of life freely .

Please pay  close attention to these almost last words of this book,  because here we read very clear and specifically  how the Lord Jesus Christ describes who will be left outside of the promised city , and these will be

1. “dogs ” The dogs are impure and malicious people or someone with a low character. The first time blatantly impure sinners were called dogs is in Deut. 23: verse 18. This is where male homosexual prostitutes were in view)

2. Sorcerers: Sorcerers are those who practice occult or witchcraft. Greek Pharmakos is the root of the English word pharmacy which often accompanies those practices.

3. Sexually immoral :Whoremongers are those who practice all kinds of sexual immorality. Greek pornos is the root of the English word pornography.

4. Murderers: Murderers: means pre-meditated murder. This has nothing to do with accidental killing or killing in war. They are included in the list given in Rev. 21 v.8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

5. Idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie .Idolaters are just those who put anything ahead of God which includes manna (money) or the love of everything which takes one’s attention off serving God. Someone once said: Show me someone’s calendar and checkbook and I’ll tell you where their heart lies. Think about that. Idolaters are also those who worship false gods or worship the true God in an unacceptable matter

Read very careful and stop, meditate for as long as it may take you to understand these words of the Lord,  then look deep within your heart, try to find  if there is any of these sins in you , and if they exist and they are in your life and still wish eternal life  rapidly  janked them  out of your soul mind and spirit, cleanse your internal “body, soul and spirit ” through the shed  blood of Jesus.  If you find existence of any of these prohibited actions and personal behaviors not allowed in the holy city then repent , don’t hestitate , right there,  right now where you at,  ask God forgiveness, repent and  ask the Lord to come into your life and cleanse you with his precious blood , tell him that you wish to make him your King and savior and I promise you He will hear your cry , he will heal you and cleanse you from all your sins and then and only then your name will be written in the book of Life.

The Lord Jesus testify : 

(Revelation 22:18-22) 

security

18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book . 19 And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life , from the holy city and from the things which are written in this libro.20 He who testifies to these things says : surely I come quickly. Amen , come, Lord Jesus.21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen .
The Lord Jesus Christ is the one who testifies to these things and who says , “Surely I come quickly .” How beautiful this prayer of the Spirit ” Amen , yeah, come, Lord Jesus.

Revelation 20:1-15

Before the Millennium  

juicio

 I saw an angel coming down from heaven , having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he seized the dragon , that ancient serpent , who is the devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 and threw him into the abyss, and shut him up , and set a seal upon him , that he should deceive the nations no more until the thousand years should be fulfilled : and after that he must be loosed a little time. 4 And I saw thrones , and they sat upon them, and judgment was given , and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast or his image , and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years. This is the first resurrection.

A thousand years is mentioned here six times in this chapter, and a thousand years means ” Millennium.”

After the terrible and great war have finished which is the  war of Armageddon,  we see the beast and the false prophet how they are cast into hell infierno2 and the old serpent Satan is cast into the abyss  abismowhere he will be in there bounded as a prisoner for a thousand years. His final judgment has  not yet come, first there will be a kingdom on earth for a thousand years where Satan can not do any harm to humanity as he does not exist on earth at this time.

Once, Satan is cast into the deep abyss , then those martyrs were resurrected, these are the ones that were faithful to the point that they gave their lives for Christ for the obedience to the word of God. These people of God did not allowed the mark of the beast to be marked on their bodies. At this time multitudes of faithful people will be resurrected by God., including dead people from the OT, due to their  obedience to the word of God they have won the privilege to be resurrected as these saints of God. Those who since then believed in the resurrection of the dead, although not knew nothing of the resurrection ” from the dead” . Only the saved ones are resurrected in the first resurrection , and they will not see the second death (John 5:24:29 ) . Between the first and second resurrection there is a thousand years in between. The Saints , the Church and the nation of Israel by this time are already purified .  Gentiles which are the Non-Jewish will  enjoy the same joy of the kingdom of God as the chosen people and that is due to their brotherhood with the people of God.

During the Millennium

6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection , the second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him a thousand years.

There will be a world kingdom which is the divine government of heaven ruling over the earth,  where Christ will be ruling from his throne and He will not  permit any injustice or sin on earth . It is here, where we will all live at last in peace with one another , where there will be no more mourning or crying, sickness or death . The center of this kingdom will be in Jerusalem. (Is 2:1-4 ) were all Christ disciples will reign with Christ . (Mt 19:28) Where only joy and happiness reigns as world peace. The saints will reign with Christ as kings and priests , and will serve Him in various capacities during the Millennium.  To reach to  our glorious responsibilities it will be determined according to the faithfulness to Christ that we now have towards Him.

Satan will be released

7 When the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth , Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city: and fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone , where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.

At last came the final judgment and eternal defeat of Satan, and he could no longer do evil to mankind because his been cast into the lake of fire and brimstone , this is the same lake of fire where the beast and the false prophet are, and they shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.

The trial before the great white throne

11 And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it , from whose face fled the earth and sky, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before God, and books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works . 13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works . 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death . 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

This great white throne  trono blanco which John saw is the judgment seat of God , white represents God’s holiness . The books were opened libros abiertos and another book was also opened , which is the book of life, and according to what is written in this book we will  be judged by all the things written in this book. The earth and heaven fled , so sinners has nowhere to hide. The judge who sits on the throne is Jesus Christ our savior, which in that day will be our just judge.

( Jn 5:22-23 ) juez

We see the sea delivered up the dead which were in it, as they were judged every man according to their works . Also, death brings the bodies of sinners who have died , and Hades delivered the souls of those who are in it . after having been judged with righteous judgment sinners will be cast into the lake of fire, this is the second death. So , everyone , sinners and saints will be resurrected for God’s great and fair trial through Jesus .

According to (John 12:58 ) the Bible which is  the Word of God will be present there at the white throne , because this same word many have rejected is the one that will judge at the last day . Also, in this “book of life”  where everything is enrolled in , is witness of all our actions, good or bad everything have been carefully recorded and justly . And if the name of a person is not in the book of life,  that person will be cast into hell ( see 15).  lago de fuego

Hell is a place where you have different degrees of punishment,  as it is in heaven that also has different degrees of rewards. But as hell goes there is one eternal fire moans and tears in it,  while in heaven there is joy and peace. When these books will actually open there will be no space or opportunity for defense , because every opportunity has already been given to anyone that his name has not be called on that final day. God will not show partiality, the sinner go to hell as Satan and his followers who have already been judged .  Those who are called by his name which are written in the book of life have eternal blessing living in a glorious new life., and those whose name are not called will be cast down to hell for eternity .

Apocalipsis 19:1-21

Alabanzas en el cielo

apocalipsis 20 images

19  Después de esto oí una gran voz de gran multitud en el cielo, que decía: !!Aleluya! Salvación y honra y gloria y poder son del Señor Dios nuestro;2 porque sus juicios son verdaderos y justos; pues ha juzgado a la gran ramera que ha corrompido a la tierra con su fornicación, y ha vengado la sangre de sus siervos de la mano de ella.3 Otra vez dijeron: !!Aleluya! Y el humo de ella sube por los siglos de los siglos.4 Y los veinticuatro ancianos y los cuatro seres vivientes se postraron en tierra y adoraron a Dios, que estaba sentado en el trono, y decían: !!Amén! !!Aleluya!5 Y salió del trono una voz que decía: Alabad a nuestro Dios todos sus siervos, y los que le teméis, así pequeños como grandes.6 Y oí como la voz de una gran multitud, como el estruendo de muchas aguas, y como la voz de grandes truenos, que decía: !!Aleluya, porque el Señor nuestro Dios Todopoderoso reina! 7 Gocémonos y alegrémonos y démosle gloria; porque han llegado las bodas del Cordero, y su esposa se ha preparado. 8 Y a ella se le ha concedido que se vista de lino fino, limpio y resplandeciente; porque el lino fino es las acciones justas de los santos.

Este es el eminente final que Jesús le dará a los ejércitos terrenales. Aquí en estos vesiculosos podremos ver la gran victoria de su ejercito celestial.  apocalipsis 20 image 2 Vemos como una gran multitud en el cielo decía: Aleluya ! con esta adoración se da el comienzo del regreso de  Jesucristo a la tierra. Aleluya ademas que significa alabanza a Jehova también  aleluya es una expresión que indica alegría, especialmente porque ha ocurrido algo que se esperaba o deseaba desde hacía tiempo.

Como ya hemos leído en capitulo 18 el pecado al fin ha sido juzgado , hemos leído la caída de Babilonia y que los mercaderes de la tierra se lamentaron, sin embargo aquí vemos como los cielos se regocijan .

La principal fuente de todo confusión , mentiras religiosa era Babilonia con su amor a Dios pero apostata pues su adoración era mas bien a los falsos ídolos ; también esta  había causado la muerte de multitudes de los santos de Dios, pero ya hemos visto su destrucción .En los versículos 5-6 vemos todas las voces que se han unido alabando a Dios porque El es Dios y porque esta en el trono. Digno es El de todo alabanza y gloria , porque el   Señor nuestro Dios Todopoderoso reina !!!.  Ahora en el versículo 7 vemos como la novia ya es la esposa. Interesante es que vemos como dice que es las bodas del  Cordero, no se representa como el Rey, dándonos a entender que aun siendo El Rey,  El sera el Cordero hasta la eternidad. Ahí,  vemos como el nos amo y el alto precio que tuvo que pagar por nosotros. Vemos como la esposa se a preparado ; significado que debemos prepararnos para poder llegar a esas bodas del Cordero. Y esto ocurre en el tribunal de Cristo , cuando toda mancha y arruga se le quito a la novia antes de convertirse en la esposa . La esposa llega al cielo por la gracia de Dios no por sus obras, pero ay el cielo , todo creyente serán juzgados dante el tribuna de Cristo por su fidelidad en la tierra. Vemos como el lino fino fue concedido para que la novia se vistiera, seria limpio  resplandeciente por la obediencia y acciones justas  de los santos.    

 La cena de las bodas del Cordero 

las bodas

9 Y el ángel me dijo: Escribe: Bienaventurados los que son llamados a la cena de las bodas del Cordero. Y me dijo: Estas son palabras verdaderas de Dios.10 Yo me postré a sus pies para adorarle. Y él me dijo: Mira, no lo hagas; yo soy consiervo tuyo, y de tus hermanos que retienen el testimonio de Jesús. Adora a Dios; porque el testimonio de Jesús es el espíritu de la profecía. 11 Entonces vi el cielo abierto; y he aquí un caballo blanco, y el que lo montaba se llamaba Fiel y Verdadero, y con justicia juzga y pelea. 12 Sus ojos eran como llama de fuego, y había en su cabeza muchas diademas; y tenía un nombre escrito que ninguno conocía sino él mismo. 13 Estaba vestido de una ropa teñida en sangre; y su nombre es: EL VERBO DE DIOS. 14 Y los ejércitos celestiales, vestidos de lino finísimo, blanco y limpio, le seguían en caballos blancos. 15 De su boca sale una espada aguda, para herir con ella a las naciones, y él las regirá con vara de hierro; y él pisa el lagar del vino del furor y de la ira del Dios Todopoderoso. 16 Y en su vestidura y en su muslo tiene escrito este nombre: REY DE REYES Y SE~NOR DE SE~NORES.

“Son Bienaventurados los que son llamados a la cena de las bodas de Dios “

En el versículo 11,  se abren los cielos , y he aquí un caballo blanco , y el que lo montaba se llamaba Fiel y Verdadero, y con justicia juzga y pelea. Aquí vemos como el que monta el caballo blanco viene con justicia y pelea, con quien pelea? pues primeramente viene con su ejercito celestial, los cuales todos están vestidos de lino finísimo, dice que son blancos y limpios y estos le seguían con caballos blancos. Así,  que al fin ya ha salido el Cordero para  juzgar y hacer la guerra final en la tierra. Ya no vemos a Cordero montado en un humilde asno pero sino en un caballo blanco feroz de ataque. Ya no lleva la corona de espina sino una corona de oro, y sus ojos ya no están llenos de lagrimas pero eran como llamas de fuego, y de sus boca llamas de fuego , ya no era palabras de gracias lo que el decía sino de justicia y victoria !. Cristo ya viene para la gran batalla del Armagedon.

El anuncio del juicio sobre la tierra 

17 Y vi a un ángel que estaba en pie en el sol, y clamó a gran voz, diciendo a todas las aves que vuelan en medio del cielo: Venid, y congregaros a la gran cena de Dios, 18 para que comáis carnes de reyes y de capitanes, y carnes de fuertes, carnes de caballos y de sus jinetes, y carnes de todos, libres y esclavos, pequeños y grandes. 19 Y vi a la bestia, a los reyes de la tierra y a sus ejércitos, reunidos para guerrear contra el que montaba el caballo, y contra su ejército. 20 Y la bestia fue apresada, y con ella el falso profeta que había hecho delante de ella las señales con las cuales había engañado a los que recibieron la marca de la bestia, y habían adorado su imagen. Estos dos fueron lanzados vivos dentro de un lago de fuego que arde con azufre. 21 Y los demás fueron muertos con la espada que salía de la boca del que montaba el caballo, y todas las aves se saciaron de las carnes de ellos.

Ya vimos las bodas, vimos su novia ya preparada y vestida para la gran boda del Cordero, pero también vemos en este capitulo el gran día del Armagedon .

La batalla no sera larga pues Cristo sale del cielo con toda victoria y viene a destruir sus enemigos  en un instante. (2Ts 1) . Ver (ver 18) donde dice parque coméis carne, el hombre es solo carne y jamas podrá con el poder de Dios, tambien por eternidad esta condenada la carne, y jamas ella poda agradar a Dios.

Los ejércitos de esta tierra es la federación Europea que son los diez reinos de Europa , reinos reunidos que se han levantado contra Cristo., como lo son el Oriente , Egipto y Rusia. Y es en el monte de “Meguido” o sea en el Armagedon donde se reunirán en el campo de batalla cual es el mas grande del mundo . Cristo destruye solo con su palabra que es la espada que sale de su boca. (Heb 4:12) . Morirá todo hombre que a rehusado escuchar su palabra y es por su misma palabra que todos caen muertos. Todo seguidor de la bestia los que se dejaron marcar con su numero están sellados para ese terrible juicio. No tan solo Cristo destruirá a la bestia y a su ejercito pero también al falso profeta y los lanzara al mismo infierno.  Y a Satanás lo prende y lo arroja al abismo. Asi,  lo leeremos en el capitulo  (20:1-3)

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.
