I'm Dr. Cheryl Davison Ricky for listening to trade matters. Last time we were together. We finish the short chapter of chapter 15 which is the prelude to the bowl judgments and today were getting into the seven bowl judgments that are characteristic of chapter 16, which are the final judgments before the coming of Christ. Just as in every just a really level set where we are. The book of Revelation is organized around three sets of symbols. The first one are the seals the second of the trumpets and the third of the bowls and if you remember in Revelation chapter 4 through five. We covered the seal judgments in the world is ruined by man. In chapter 8, we covered the trumpet judgments when the world is ruined by Satan and in chapter 16 we see the bowl judgments when the world is reclaimed by God said here in chapter 16 were going to see where the world is reclaimed by Godzilla three verse one. Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth in the bowl judgments. God no longer works through intermediaries and previously he's worked through intermediaries like man in chapter 4 through five and Satan in chapter 8 that he takes control of the judgments himself. The bowl of judgment are poured out by his direct command.
And here we see them come in rapid succession, and some of them probably overlap each other so the first bowl that were going to discuss are the loathsome sores in verse two. So the first went out and poured out his bowl upon the earth and foul and loathsome sore came upon the man who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. The first bowl judgment is foul and loathsome sores which I am by this description, I would say is an abscess. These sores afflict all who have taken the mark of the beast upon themselves and all who have worship the image what we know is that is sore is an outward sign or evidence of some inward corruption. In this case, the sores are a manifestation of the inner spiritual poison present in the person's heart.
These sores come upon people as a direct consequence of their spiritual hardness of their heart. That is the first bowl and look how rapidly they come. There's no space in between the interlude in between verses two and three. The next verse comes in the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man and every living creature in the sea died. So the second vial is called blood in the seas, the emptying of the second bowl results in the oceans of the world turning to blood causing the death of every living creature in the sea. This judgment is similar to the second seal and the second judgment if you remember the second seal release was a fiery red horse on in Revelation chapter 6324 and the second trumpet announced a burning mountain that was thrown into the sea turning 1/3 of into blood. All of this is very similar to the plagues of Egypt where Moses turned the Nile to blood. Most of the fish died and was going to treat matters with Dr. Cheryl Davis matters is a ministry of the truth project a lot of waste ministry teaching theology goes inside or outside of the church.
