Background Reading:

The Vision of Seven Angels with Seven Plagues

15:1 I saw another sign in heaven. It was both spectacular and amazing. There were seven angels with the seven last plagues, with which God’s wrath is completed.

The Vision of the Sea of Glass

2 Then I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire. Those who had conquered the beast, its image, and the number of its name were standing on the sea of glass holding God’s harps in their hands. 3 They sang the song of God’s servant Moses and the song of the lamb:

“Your deeds are both spectacular and amazing,

Lord God Almighty.

Your ways are just and true,

King of the nations.

4 Lord, who won’t fear and praise your name?

For you alone are holy,

and all the nations will come and worship you

because your judgments have been revealed.”

The Vision of the Temple Opened

5 After these things, I looked, and the Temple, which is the Tent of Testimony in heaven, was open! 6 The seven angels with the seven plagues came out of the Temple wearing clean, shining linen with gold sashes around their chests. 7 One of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven gold bowls full of the wrath of God, who lives forever and ever. 8 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 came to an end.

The Vision of the Seven Angels Pouring Out Their Bowls

16:1 Then I heard a loud voice from the Temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.”
