Revelation Chapter 16

The Revelation of Yahshua Christ

Chapter 16

XVI 1 And I heard a great voice from out of the temple saying to the seven messengers: “Go, and pour out the seven bowls of the wrath of Yahweh into the earth!”

Here will be discussed not definite and detailed historic events, as were witnessed in chapters 4 through 13, but an overall picture of Christian society, because it may be discerned that these prophecies are indeed a premonition of the overall state of the Christian society as it exists after the passing of the two beasts which we saw portrayed in Revelation chapter 13.

2 And the first went out and poured his bowl out into the earth, and there came a bad and grievous sore upon the men who have the engraved mark of the beast and who worship its image.

With the French Revolution and the age of Napoleon, the end of the old feudal order had come for certain. The end of ecclesiastical control over the morals and behavior of the people, a power which was often abused under the Romish catholic church system anyway, had also come. The people would now generally be left to their own devices, under the guise of the so-called free and modern society. Yet with the introduction of mass-produced Bibles into the average home, the common person was also given a choice: to follow the Word of God, or succumb to the devices of the society. The jew – satan let out of the pit - as we shall see in Revelation chapter 20 – is now an equal in European society, and will use his new status to promote all sorts of vice and corruption, modern versions of the Canaanite idols his fathers had once used to allure the children of Israel into sin. Furthermore, free enterprise is endangered and shall succumb to an entirely usury-based economy, organized under capitalism and orchestrated by the jewish banking families of Europe, notably the Rothschilds. Under a usury-based capitalist economy, the enemies of Christ would gain more and more power and influence, enabling them to finance ever-stronger attacks against Christendom, and from within rather than from without.

In order to help understand what is being described here, a reading from Ezekiel chapter 18 shall be presented, along with a reading of part of Jeremiah chapter 31 and then a reading from the Book of Joshua. Ezekiel is writing at a time when practically all of the Israelites along with most of Judah were taken off into captivity by the Assyrians. Ezekiel is among the captives who were relocated and settled in a part of northern Syria. Those taken captive by the Assyrians would never return to Palestine. Instead, they would for the most part eventually migrate through the Caucasus mountains and eventually emerge as the Sakans and Kimmerians, forerunners of the modern Germanic peoples.

Ezekiel 18: “1 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying, 2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge? 3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. 4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. 5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right, 6 And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman, 7 And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment; 8 He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true judgment between man and man, 9 Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.” Among the sins which men will die for are idolatry, fornication, adultery and usury, which is what the language here is describing, along with a lack of brotherly loved – here depicted as a fair treatment of the debtor, and provision for the needy.

This admonition in Ezekiel 18 is then repeated for a son who does engage in such behavior, and for a son's son who does not, in order to demonstrate that the same family may have members who sin in this manner, and members who do not.. But from this time only the sinners will be punished, and not the entire family. That at one time entire families were punished for the sins of a man is evident in Scripture, and because it also helps to explain other aspects which are being discussed here, a passage from the story of Achan, found at Joshua 7:20-26, shall be read: “20 And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done: 21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. 22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. 23 And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD. 24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor. 25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. 26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.” So it is evident that Achan's entire family was destroyed for his transgression. If Achan were to keep his gold and his silver, and his “Babylonish garment”, it was inevitable that he was to become a banker – for that was the only use that those things would have had. In ancient Babylon, the temples of the pagan idols also served as banks, among other things. The priests of those temples would loan out the offerings which they received at usury. Achan would have had no other purpose if he kept these things.

Another passage which lends insight to this passage of the Revelation is found in Jeremiah Chapter 31, verses 27 through 30: “27 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast. 28 And it shall come to pass, that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict; so will I watch over them, to build, and to plant, saith the LORD. 29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. 30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.” This passage in Jeremiah precedes a passage beginning at verse 31 which promises the consummation of the New Covenant. Therefore it is a prophecy for this very time. Sour grapes are associated with the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah at Deuteronomy 32:32: “For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter”. Here it is evident that the sour grapes represent the fornication and other sins which were prominent at Sodom and Gomorrah.

The day would come when Yahweh would sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and the seed of beast, and that day began when the jew was emancipated and allowed into the community of the European nations as citizens equal to Christians. Satan was loosed from the pit, or the ghettos of Europe, in order that he may deceive the entire world. In Revelation chapter 13, we saw that it was the dragon which gave his power to the beast. This dragon is also identified with Satan in Revelation chapter 12. For many centuries the jew remained in the background, as court physician or private banker or in some other panderous capacity, attempting to compromise the nobility of Europe and often succeeding. Through the usurpation of organizations such as the Jesuits and Masonry, now the jew could overthrow and supplant the nobility of Europe, which began with the French Revolution. The capitalist system requires usury, considered to be a great evil to Yahweh God. The capitalist system has brought with it international commerce – globalism, multiculturalism, and all of the other devices of the jew used to weaken Christendom and flood the Christian nations with godless aliens, the “beasts” of Jeremiah chapter 31. It will be seen below that these ideas, along with the idea of a society without God, were first broadcast and promoted throughout the Christian world beginning with the French Revolution. The result is the modernist and mixed-race society in which we live today. Worship of the beast, and the taking of the mark of the beast, is therefore the worship of this system of man brought upon the Christian world by the enemies of God. Unlike the mark of the beast placed upon man during the period of the papacy, this time it is voluntary, and man takes it upon himself. Christians are told to despise the world, and today most of them fully embrace the world, even believing that to be Christian.

3 And the second poured his bowl out into the sea, and it became blood as if dead, and every soul of life died which was in the sea.

This represents the death of spiritual life in the Christian nations – as people began to worship the beast the aspirations of Christianity were replaced with the jewish ideals of consumerism and humanism.

4 And the third poured his bowl out into the rivers and the springs of the waters, and they became blood. 5 And I heard the messenger of the waters saying “You are righteous, He who is and who was, the Holy One, because You have judged these things! 6 Because they poured out the blood of the saints and prophets, You also gave them blood to drink. They are deserving!” 7 And I heard the altar saying “Yeah, Prince Yahweh Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments!”

This represents all of the resulting wars stemming from humanism and the jewish influence over Christianity.

8 And the fourth poured his bowl out upon the sun, and had given to it to burn men with fire. 9 And the men had been burned by great heat and they blasphemed the Name of Yahweh who has authority over these plagues, and they did not repent to give honor to Him.

The sun in the Revelation often seems to represent the powers of worldly governments as ordained by God, who has authority over these plagues. In this age the governments of Adam-kind have become tyrannies. People curse, blaspheme and deny God when they are affected by these plagues, although they are affected by them because they worship the beast system, and not God Himself.

10 And the fifth poured his bowl out upon the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened, and their tongues strove from the toil, 11 and they blasphemed the God of heaven from their toils and their sores yet they did not repent from their works.

How often do we hear “why does God permit things to be so?” Or “what kind of God would allow such a thing?” Humanism has replaced God because God is considered to be unfair. No longer do the governments of the world act as Christian governments. Because we as a people have worshipped the beast, - as we shall see in chapter 17 – our kingdom has been handed over to the beast.

Remember the trial of Job. Satan challenged Yahweh, that if Job were to be touched by adversity, he would curse Yahweh. Yahweh therefore allowed Job to be denuded of all which he had by Satan, and Job suffered greatly, but he never cursed God. In the end Job was rewarded many times over. This should continue to serve as our model today, whenever we are tried or suffer damage from this beast system.

12 And the sixth poured his bowl out upon the great river Euphrates, and its waters dried, in order that the way of the kings from the rising of the sun should be prepared.

The industrialization of Asia which began in the 19th century prepared the way of the kings of the east to gain power over Christendom. Today, through the industrialization of China and Japan and the other Asian states, they hold a great amount of power and influence over Christendom. They have also become militarized at the expense of Christendom. These peoples of Asia would never have been able to rise to the level where they could be any plausible threat against us if it were not for internationalist capitalism, for the jew knows no boundaries and has no allegiances to any other people. It is only natural that eventually the parasite will destroy the host.

13 And I saw from out of the mouth of the dragon and from out of the mouth of the beast and from out of the mouth of the False Prophet three unclean spirits like frogs.

[Yahweh God does indeed have a sense of humor.] Frogs have no prior allegorical use in Scripture. They are one of the plagues in Egypt, however it is certain that the reference to frogs in the Book of Exodus must be taken literally. However one clue to the use of the word here cannot be overlooked. While it is not an intention here to continually insult the French people, and they were as much victims of circumstance in the French Revolution as were the Germans, the English and the Americans in the torments to follow, the use of the term frog to describe a Frenchman has been extant throughout the English-speaking world for over 200 years. This may be an indication as to the nature of the unclean spirits which emanate from the mouth of the false prophet.

A lot of argument, rational or emotional, can be made concerning which isms or which philosophies these three unclean frogs represent. However all of the philosophies promoted and forced into our Christian society by our enemies can be summarized in and have been cloaked by the supposed ideals of the French Revolution found in the slogan, Liberté, égalité, fraternité, which is still the national motto of France today. Through these ideals have gone out all of the jewish ideas into the world, the ideas of liberty and freedom and equality and brotherhood which are contrary to the covenant relationship which Christians have with their God. Christians are not supposed to be free. They are supposed to be servants of Christ, and keep His commandments. Christians do not have equality. Wives and children are supposed to be subject to their husbands and fathers (Ephesians 5:21-33, 1 Peter 3:1-5), and each of us has an unequal portion in the diverse gifts of God (1 Corinthians 12, Matthew 25:15). Christians are supposed to have brotherhood only with those of their kin who are Christians, and are to have no community or fellowship whatsoever with non-Christians (2 John 9-11). The jewish ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity are ideals which lead to the decline of Christian society into the cesspool of human licentiousness. All of the cries for diversity, racial equality, sexual liberation, and every other philosophy detrimental to sound Christian society which has been made these past 200 years have been based upon these jewish ideals, and jews have been their chief instigators and promoters.

14 For they are the spirits of demons making signs, which go out to the kings of the whole inhabited earth to gather them to the battle of the great day of Yahweh the Almighty. 15 “Behold! I come as a thief! Blessed is he being alert and keeping his garments, that he would not walk naked and they would see his shame!” 16 And He gathered them into the place called in Hebrew “Harmagedon”.

An ar, or har, is a mountain, and Megiddo means place of crowds. The events described here can be paralleled to the events described in Ezekiel chapter 38. All of the alien nations of the world are gathered to battle against the people of God. While an actual military invasion cannot be precluded, this situation has been transpiring for at least 50 years now, since the Christian nations have begun to be overrun with massive non-European immigration by all of the world's other races, the beasts of Jeremiah 31:27, and also of Isaiah 56:9. This situation is described as culminating in Revelation chapter 19 and will be discussed at length there.

As for those keeping their garments, Christians should be covered with the blood of the Lamb. The references to shame and nakedness are a reference to Genesis chapter 3, and after the transgression in the garden, which was certainly sexual in nature, Adam and Eve realized that they were naked, and became ashamed.

17 And the seventh poured his bowl out upon the air, and a great voice came from out of the temple from the throne saying “It has happened!” 18 And there were lightnings and noises and thunders and there was a great earthquake, such as had not happened from when man had come to be upon the earth was such an earthquake so great! 19 And the great city broke into three parts and the cities of the nations fell. And the great Babylon had been remembered before Yahweh, to give to her the cup of the wine of the wrath of His anger. 20 And every island fled, and the mountains were not found. 21 And a great hailstorm like boulders descends from out of heaven upon men, and the men blasphemed Yahweh from the plague of the hailstorm, because the plague of it is exceedingly great.

These last verses describe the fall of Babylon. It cannot be commented upon yet, because it has not yet happened. Chapters 17 and 18 which follow shall discuss this same thing – the fall of Mystery Babylon - in greater detail, and also offer a poetic portrayal of Mystery Babylon itself.
