6-th bowl of wrath
After the 1000 years, in the time of
pouring of the 6th bowl Satan will organize all Jews haters - Gog from the land
of Magog- on the battle against holy Jerusalem: «they
shall surely gather together, but not by Me: whosoever shall gather
together against thee shall fall for thy sake» (Isa.54:15). Before the
Jesus' coming God will allow to attack Jerusalem by removing His protection over
it. After the Second coming His protection will be over Jerusalem, thus Satan
will go against God Himself, ignoring His protection.
shalt come into the land that is brought
back from the sword, and is gathered
out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always
waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell
safely all of them. And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled
villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them
dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, (here
obviously is spoken about the restored after the 1000 years Jerusalem. Today’s
Jerusalem doesn’t leave safely and, of course, has fences and gates, and New
Jerusalem will have walls and gates – Rev.21:14)
…to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now
inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have
gotten cattle and goods» (Ezek.38:8,11,12).
But God will be for enemies of Jerusalem
as «a wall
of fire round about» (Zech.2:5). «And
the LORD shall ... shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of
his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and
tempest, and hailstones» (Isa.30:30). «And
I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon
him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an
overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone»
«and fire came down from God out of heaven, and
devoured them» (Rev.20:9).
«And there fell
upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight
of a talent»
This is a description of consequences of
the 7th bowl, when all alive righteous will be taken to heaven, all wicked will
be left on Earth, and they will be destroyed by fiery hailstone.
the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and
brimstone, and an horrible
tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup (bowl )» (Ps.11:6
«...the wine cup (bowl)
of this fury... Ye shall certainly drink...
for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh;
he will give them that are wicked to the sword... they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground»
After this last battle nobody will remain on earth to bury
Usually to prove
that just before the Second coming the earth will be completely destroyed
Adventists are quoting Jeremiah 4:23-26: " I
beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and
they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and
indeed they trembled,…I beheld, and indeed there was no man, And all
the birds of the heavens had fled….And all its cities were broken down At the
presence of the LORD, By His fierce anger”.
They are right that this is
description of the earth just before the Second coming, after the 6-th trumpet:
«How long shall I … hear the sound of the trumpet?”
(v.21), which will bring a great war (v.29; 5:10-17).
there will not be a complete destruction :
hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be
desolate; yet will
I not make a full end» (Jer.4:27). “Nevertheless
in those days, saith the LORD, I will not make
a full end with you” (5:18). “They shall
throughly glean the remnant of Israel as a vine (harvesting):…
I am full of the fury of the LORD; … I will pour it out upon the children
abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with
the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days. And
their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives
together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith
the LORD” (6:9,11,12).
So we can see clear the life on earth will continue after
coming. After the pouring of the bowls
the earth will be not restorable, ready for recreation. Thus, after the pouring
of the 7th bowl “And there fell upon men a great hail
out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent” (Rev.16:21).
That means, there no one living person will survive. All people will die.
shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and
they that dwell therein shall die in like manner» (Isa.51:6);
«the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and
the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are
therein shall be burned up» (2Реt.3:10)
(this Peter’s prophecy was clarified in ch.2 ).
will be nothing left on Earth after the pouring the bowls. God will create a
completely new atmosphere, new grounds and waters. As for Adam God has prepared
the place at first, and then He created him, so the same He will do for His
Bride. At first God will create for her a new pure planet and then He will put
her there. God did not put Adam into dirt, telling to him:
«you sit here
while I’m creating for you a little grass».
It is the huge mistake to
think, that New Jerusalem will descend on an old dirty planet and will stand
there in the time of recreation of the planet. Even to paint a table a man
removes a vase from it at first, and here we are saying about an extreme
alteration of the planet.
After the final Judgment John saw at
first the new planet, and then he saw New Jerusalem descending down from heaven
«And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the
first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven,
prepared as a bride adorned for her husband» (Rev.21:1,2).
God will take
His bride to heaven before the harvesting of unrighteous in order for her do not
see all horrors of death, not for she could observe
all of these horrors from
her unapproachable walls. No. God's elect was invited to the wedding
not to a horror movie.
Adventists teach that “sea” is a
symbol of the unrighteous people and in New Jerusalem there
will be no
unrighteous people. However, even in
New Jerusalem there won’t be an
here the sea is not a symbol at all. In the time of
Judgment (20:11-14) «And the sea gave
up the dead
which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them:
and they were judged every man according to their works».
teach that images of the sea, death and hell in this passage are symbolical. But
it not absolutely so. These are, as a matter of fact, three places, where all dead will be : the sea, death
(death or a grave. These words frequently are interchangeable in many languages.
So in Russia you can say: "Only a grave can separate us" which is same
as "Only a death can separate us” ; In US you can hear: “He will take
this secret to the gave” which is the same as “he will keep the secret till
his death”) and hell (Greek: “Hades”,
human remains can be only in a ground (grave, death) and waters (sea), the
angels of Satan and all the rest unclean spirits can be only under ground
(hell), as it already was discussed above in the ch.3. «And
death and hell were cast into the lake of fire» means, that neither a
man, nor an angel will perish anymore. The sea was not thrown in the lake of
fire, because the sea is not a symbol there, but a real image. There will be sea on the old Earth till the very end of its existence, on the new earth there
will be no sea.
As it was discussed
above, there is no such thing as the Investigative Judgment started in 1844, E.
White taught about. Bible clear says that Jesus will judge at His
5th seal was opened in 1990s and many Christians worldwide were killed for their
faith " they cried with a
saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost
thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that
on the earth?" ( Rev.6:10). So we see one more proof
Bible that even in 1990-th Jesus had not judged yet.
The judgment of the living:
the saved and unrighteous (Mat.25:31-46) will be after the 7th trumpet at the
Second coming of Christ, and after the 7th bowl (cup), which is after the 1000
years. The judgment of the alive will be
fast, as the living already will make
the judgment of themselves. Some will have the mark of the beast,
others - the
seal of God. When Jesus will appear these
two categories of the alive will
simply divide, some - to
the one side, others - to another, and the group of
unrighteous will be destroyed.
judgment of the dead saints(Rev.20:4)
will be short, and as a matter of fact will
not be the judgment at all, because they will not be accused, the business will
only about ranks in Heavenly Kingdom.
The judgment of the other dead (Rev.20:12)
will be long, because everyone should answer for each idle word (Mat.12:36) and
give the report what he had done while
he was alive (2Cor.5:10). The Jesus
believers will have
Him as theirs defense counsel before the Father, the
non-believers will answer for their sins without a help
and protection of Jesus.
I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and
judgment was given unto them»
(Rev.20:4). So, who will judge the saints, the first resurrected ones?
the saints who were resurrected earlier: Moses (Luke 9:30), Elijah (2
King.2:11), Enoch (Gen.5:24) and those saints, who were resurrected after the
they together with the rest of the saints will judge
the world (1Cor.6:2). God
the Father and Jesus do not
like to judge people. It is not in their character.
to forgive, instead of to punish. («For the Father judgeth
no man, but hath
committed all judgment unto the Son» (John 5:22). Jesus entitled His
saints to judge the world when He was still on earth: «Whose
soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto
them; and whose soever
sins ye retain, they are retained»
He said to Peter: «And I will give unto thee the keys
of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound
in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven»
«And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your
words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake
off the dust of your
feet…It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorra in the day
of judgment, than for that city» (Mat.10:14).
The people will be
judged by another people. «Let the saints be joyful in
glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in
their mouth, and
a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon
the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
To bind their kings with
chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment
written: this honour have all his saints” (Ps.149:5-9).
the righteous men, they shall judge» (Ezek.23:45).
will judge only those who knows about God, who are "inside", brothers
by faith (Mat.18:15-18) and angels (1Cor.6:2). The apostles will judge 12 tribes
of Israel (Mat.19:28). Joshua (the son of Zephaniah) will judge the house of
those who did not know God will be judged by God Himself: «do
not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without God judgeth»
In Rev. 20:4,6 is underlined, that saints
who will be resurrected first, will reign with Christ for 1000 years. Why
isn’t it tell, that they will reign with Christ for eternity? What will change
after the 1000 years?
During the 1000 years they will reign with Christ above the inhabitants of the
earth, i.e. they will
judge the people, who will be left on Earth, they will
also judge angels and the dead. After the1000 years there will be nobody left to
judge, there only the righteous will be, therefore after the saints will finish
their 1000 years preparation to their ministry, they will reign on Earth
24. Mistakes in the Adventist doctrines.
Despite of the fact that all the seals, trumpets, bowls, angels are represented
in Revelation in the sequence: the first seal, second, third…; the first
trumpet, second, third…; the first bowl, second…; the first angel and ctr.,
which is means that there is order in Revelation, Adventists teach there is no order. That is why there
is no order in their explanations.
Bible clear says that Jesus will come
with the seventh trumpet and after that “in a moment” the resurrection will
be. Adventists teach that seventh trumpet is already sounding for more than 160 years,
Revelation 11 says that Jerusalem will be
under Gentiles for 42 months and at that time the two prophets will prophesy.
Adventists teach that Jerusalem was under Gentiles in the 1-st century, but two
prophets prophesied from 6-th till 18-th century .
Revelation 13 says that the beast with 7
be in power for 42 months. Adventists by ignoring the given time
teach that the beast represents the old Roman empire, which had been existed not
for 42 months but for centuries.
Adventists are promoting the three
messages (Rev.14) as they are sounding already from 1844. However the
second message is “Babylon is fallen”. Every Adventist knows that Babylon is
Roman Catholic church, Adventist preachers are telling that Catholic church is
gaining power, so how it can be falling starting from 1844 and still gaining power?
Bible says that Jesus began to open the
seals when the little horn lost its power (1849), when after that the Heavenly sanctuary was cleansed
(1850) and Jesus was recognized as the
king of kingdom of heaven. Adventists following Miller's doctrine, who thought
that Jesus will come in 1844 and therefore all seals had to be opened prior
1844, teach that Jesus began to open seals beginning from the 1-st century AD.
However Heavenly sanctuary was cleansed 18 centuries later - in 1844.
breaking the order of "Revelation", Adventists teach, that the first
trumpet has already sounded in
395AD, second - in 419AD, third - in 456, fourth
- in 476,
fifth - in 1299, sixth - in 1449, and seventh is sounding since
1844 and will sound up to the New earth. And they assert, that the trumpets
symbolize... a military history of the Christian era as it affects Christ's
In spite of the fact that Bible explains in detail , what will take place with a
sounding of the each trumpet, which is not connected to a military history at
all, Bible also
speaks, that the trumpets will begin to sound after the opening
of the seven seals. Nevertheless Adventists do not believe, that
"Revelation" has the order, and consequently they pull events and
images out of it by
their own arbitrariness.
are many contradictions in Adventists’ teachings which are pointing on
Adventists ignoring of the Bible
and their illiteracy in history.
Now, knowing that after the Second coming
some righteous people will live on earth; after the 1000 years Gog will go with
the war against the restored Jerusalem and 7 bowls of God’s wrath will be poured on the earth; New Jerusalem with all saints and righteous will descend on
the new earth, let’s look again in Revelation.
order in Revelation
1-3 -Jesus announces about His
He referred to the seven churches existed at that time.
Ch. 4-9 - John being in vision in heaven
describes from there events which have occurred in heaven and
on earth till 7th
trumpet. There in heaven he sees Jesus who had defeated Satan and his angels
(5:5) and began
to break the seals. Then the angels began blow the
trumpets, and he saw everything, what had taken place
on earth after the
sounding of the trumpets. He saw,
1/3 of all trees on earth had burned down,1/3
of all sea creatures and ships were lost, 1/3 of all rivers became poison, 1/3
of all people of the world was lost in the war. Such a wide scale vision could
be received only from above.
- John is on earth and he describes the events which have occurred on the
earth up to the Second coming, i.e. including the 7th trumpet. His accents are
on the most important characters, who will play the important role in the given
time interval. He speaks
about the 2 prophets, the beast, the false prophet and
144000 God's firstborn. Before the description of the
beast in order for us to
understand, who is the dragon
who gave the authority to the beast, and what
the people will worship (13:2,3), there in ch.12 John
has described in details, who is the dragon.
John sees the Jesus' coming. Because John is
on the earth he doesn't hear a
sound of the 7th trumpet. Jesus harvests the holy people up to heaven, then He
destroys the unrighteous (second harvesting).
Ch.15 John was raised in heaven again,
there he sees saints who had overthrown the beast. It is a description
1000-year's of their government from the Heavenly Kingdom.
He sees the 7 plagues of the anger were poured down on earth after the 1000
Ch.17-18 John is lowered on earth and again describes
in detail the characters,
who will play the important role
in time of the pouring of the bowls. These are
the beast and Babylon.
- John is in heaven. It is the end of the 1000 year's the saints had lived in
heaven. "the marriage of the
Lamb has come, and
His bride has
(:7). The bride, i.e. the saints, after
1000-year's of preparation, are ready for "marriage" (closest and
equal in rights union with Jesus). The righteous who
will be resurrected
after the 1000 years, together with
the righteous, who will be taken to
heaven alive after the 1000 years, are guests
which will be "invited to the marriage supper of
the Lamb" (:9).
John sees Jesus defeated the beast and his armies.
The beast was thrown into the lake of fire, others were slain with the sword of
- John is again on earth, and he explains where
this beast come from, and that
the beast and the dragon
is the same creature. Everything what he didn't mention
earlier, he talks about here. He talks about all missed details up to the
beast's defeat. Then there is the judgment of the dead.
21,22 - John sees the new heaven, new earth and
new Jerusalem lowered on the new
everything in "Revelation" is in the ideal order.
