    Explain Revelation 6 verse 16. The battle of Armageddon is is a real battle or is symbolic. Thank you.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Revelation 16
    Sister Evelyn, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    The battle of Armageddon is a battle as real as any battle; yet this battle isn't with natural weapons of warfare. Study Isaiah 9, it's a prophecy about Christ, the kingdom of God, and the battle we fight to obtain the kingdom (CHRIST IN YOU).

    Isaiah 9:5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood, but this (battle) SHALL BE with BURNING and FUEL OF FIRE.

    Isaiah 9:19 ......And THE PEOPLE shall be the FUEL OF THE FIRE (CHRIST)....(Hebrews 12:29)

    Revelation 9:18 By these three was a third part of man killed, BY THE FIRE (CHRIST)(Hebrews 12:29) ....

    Ezekiel 5:3 Thou shall BURN a third part in the fire (IN CHRIST) ....

    Ezekiel 5:4 Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the FIRE (IN CHRIST), and burn them in the FIRE (IN CHRIST)....

    Isaiah 4:4 When the LORD (FIRE) shall have washed away the filth of the DAUGHTERS OF ZION, and shall have purged the blood of (new) Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the SPIRIT OF JUDGEMENT and the SPIRIT OF BURNING.

    Zachariah 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the FIRE (CHRIST) .....

    Malachi 3:2 Who shall abide the day of his coming (CHRIST IN YOU)? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiners FIRE.....

    Matthew 3:11 ....he will baptise you with the HOLY GHOST and FIRE:

    Revelation 21:8 But the FEARFUL, and MURDERS (1 John 3:15).....and ALL LIARS shall have their part in the lake that burneth with FIRE (JUDGED IN CHRIST)...

    Joel 3:14 Multitude, multitudes, in the valley of DECISION: for the DAY OF THE LORD (TODAY) is near in the valley of DECISION.

    Evelyn,

    Revelation 16:16 is speaking of a real battle that will take place.

    And he gathered them together into the place which is called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

    The valley of Megiddo, it's HAR-MEGIDDON. HAR is valley. The valley of Megiddo is what Armageddon means.

    And we see that in Zechariah Chapter 14 Verses 2 and 3, and Ezekiel Chapters 8 and 39. It talks about this battle known as Armageddon, or the valley of Megiddo.

    Evelyn Brown,

    Revelation 6: 16 lets you know that the 6th seal, scroll and earthquake, lead into the great and dreadful day of the Lord. The world is about to change for the worse.

    Armageddon, as you sighted, occurs at the end, when Jesus returns, as prophesy is complete.

    I hope that helps,

    God bless

    frogs; Rev. 16:13 = Frogs are amphibians and distant zoological relatives to reptiles. In the demonic spiritual realm, these frog-like "unclean spirits" are related to "the dragon" (Satan/Devil; identified twelve times in Revelation), also a spiritually unclean reptile. In the physical world, reptiles eat frogs, but in the spiritual world, the dragon issues one of these frogs from his mouth. How strange are both the physical and the spiritual worlds!

    Amphibious frogs are at home in water as they are on land. In the Second Egyptian Plague, frogs issued "abundantly" from the river (Exo. 8:3). Interestingly, the unholy trinity issues these frogs immediately after the waters of the Euphrates River dries up.

    As an unclean animal for dietary consumption, The Jews considered frogs an abomination (Lev. 11:10-12). Scriptures record the word "frogs" fourteen times, and all references, with this exception, refers to the Second Egyptian Plague (Exo. 8:2f; Ps. 78:45; 105:30) when GOD sent frogs as an instrument of judgment. GOD can use any created creature to torment and judge the ungodly.
  • Is this happening NOW?
  • Elizabeth Parent on Revelation 16:17
    Revelations mentions the devil of the air . Can this be the internet ?
  • Rick Mentzer - in Reply on Revelation 16:17
    It can be anything that apposes itself against the true God, I know a lot of Beleivers who use the internet to teach so not everything about it is evil.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 16:17
    If you're referring to Revelation 16:17, then this verse speaks of an angel (from God) who pours out his vial upon the Earth in the time of the Great Tribulation (when God's Anger is poured out upon the world). After the contents of the vial was poured out, there were thunders, lightnings & a great earthquake. So there's no devil seen in this verse, & certainly no internet.

    However, Ephesians 2:2 does mention the "prince of the power of the air". Maybe you're thinking of this, as certainly the Devil is implied here, but any reference to the internet is not seen here either.
  • Betty on Revelation 16
    I love the bible thank you so much for making this bible
  • Randall Bunton on Revelation 16:16
    Why is the comment locked? The red letter in the KJV bible is the truth. To suggest Jesus would have his disciples slaughtered with no defense is wrong. He blinded Saul on the road to Damascus to protect his flock. People must be able to defend themselves against evil. He literally meant they must defend themselves and their families against the demonic powers that exist on the Earth. Jesus never bowed the knee to any king or devil on the Earth. Christians must follow his Divine teaching and warnings. For the days are indeed evil. Anyone that believes Jesus was a non-violent advocate like Martin Luther King do not believe his prophecy. I will follow the Nazarene no matter what "scholars" say to twist his word. Antichrist is still here as in the time of Jesus. The carpenter was no weakling trying to compromise good and evil. He stood firm and we must also.
  • Admin - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Hi Randall, looks like you were able to post just fine. Most comments more than 1 month old can't be replied to (locked) to encourage people to start a new thread. It works out better that way. God bless you!
  • A Jewish Wedding on Revelation 16:16
    These are actual 7 steps of a Jewish wedding.

    1. First, the Jewish groom barters with the father of the bride. They get together and they go back-and-forth, and barter as to what the deal is going to be.

    2. Once they reach an agreement, the future bride is brought in. And if she approves of it, all three of them drink out of the covenant cup, which means from that time forward they are betrothed.

    3. The groom goes back to his father's house to build their living quarters. It is built right off of the family home. And once the wedding takes place, and they are now married, they will go back to his family's home, and there will be living quarters that will be for them.

    4. The father of the groom decides when the living quarters are done, and when he can go get his bride. What does that tell us? We don't know the time or the hour. It has to be a minimum of one year because it is a time of purity for her. The groom can go get his bride when his father decides it's time.

    5. When the marriage announcement is made, catch this: the people who have already been invited to the wedding feast, they take their positions along the parade route, because the groom is going to get his bride. And there are people stationed in position all the way along the route. They join the parade as it passes by. It is called a parade.

    6. When the groom reaches the bride's house, he stands at a distance and blows the shofar, the trumpet, for the bride to come out and meet him. And the wedding takes place at that time. Do you see anything in there about prophecy? The groom comes to get his bride, and he stands a ways off and blows the trumpet, and she comes out to meet him.

    7. The parade goes back to the groom's house and the wedding feast begins. All of the guests in the parade gather in the Fellowship Hall, and the door is shut. This is not an open public thing.

    Compare this to prophecy in Matthew Chapter 25

    Be looking for our Bridegroom!

  • Many people where murdered in the past for not adhering to the trinity doctrine , which proves it's not at all from God if you have a rational mind .

    So in supporting this heinous doctrine you are under the Gods curse of it .
  • Adam - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Hi Rob,

    I'm wondering what your motive is for coming to a Bible website and accusing Christians who believe the trinity of being under a "curse"- something that most Christians believe in. Is that how you lovingly are looking to exchange information about the Bible to edify each other or are just looking to start a quarrel and do the opposite? Romans 14:19, Ephesians 4:32, Ephesians 4:29.

    The reason people believe that God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Ghost) are one is that it literally says that in the Bible in 1 John 5:7 and elsewhere: Link

    Do you think this is a salvation issue where someone may go to hell for believing the Bible verses such as 1 John 5:7 or why else are you so strong to condemn Bible believing Christians? What if someone accused you of what you're accusing others- that you yourself are spreading a "heinous doctrine" and are under a "curse," how would that make you feel and would it be true?
  • Sis Jackie reply to Adam concerning 1john1 on Revelation 16:16
    Adam please read the testimony of 1john1 again, Then read my exhortation ................

    The discussion was not concerning Sin but JOY! I perceive the person to be young in the Lord; comparing their Joy to someone else.Not realizing the spirit now that he /she is born again is now in the process of renewing their mind; being renewed as the milk of the word is received ;Sanctify them through thy truth:thy word is truth St. John 17

    As a sinner, nothing we could have done or didnt do would have made us worthy in the sight of God except what the testimony stated,I have

    confessed and I believe I've been forgiven. The scripture says, Grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ! I guarantee His full joy will come...Dont compare, what he has for you, is for You. i AGREE we must have a spiritual walk.but, We naturally or Spiritually cant walk at Birth. The devil is the accuser to reminds you of Past sins But God threw then in the sea of his forgetfulness...Praise

    Almighty God....To answer your question about your conscious I dont know when But I do know He keeps His Word. He did it for me and everyone

    he delivers from sin and shame. The scriptues even states some of our past life 1st corinth.6:9-11vrs.

    We thank our Father, God, for The Gift...Jesus and everthing we need for life and godliness flows out of Him Joy is included..You dont realllly know

    what you got inside. 1john1 Love yaa with the love of the lord...you are on my prayer list now.. I dont care what else he gives you Salvation is the ultimate thing to praise him and be joyfull or full of Joy about Adam you also join us in our prayer and praise for 1john1 also pray for me.

  • Terry on Revelation 16:16
    Comment by Allen on Genesis 9:24 concerning Noah and the curse on Canaan is the first and only comment I have ever seen of MANY other attempts to explain this verse, which seems correct to me. I ALWAYS had assumed that Noah's YOUNGER SON was meaning the same thing as YOUNGER GRANDSON since that is who he cursed, Canaan, the younger of Ham's four sons. Also, if Noah would have been talking about Ham it would have simply read SON instead of "younger son" which also would not fit well due to the fact that Ham was the middle son, NOT the younger son. And finally, we learn that it was AFTER all the covering up had occurred that Noah awoke, so he did not even know that Ham had done anything wrong. It never says anywhere that Ham DID anything wrong. He could have glanced and then immediately turned away and went to tell his brothers to figure out what to do and the other two brothers had a good idea. No harm. BUT... when Noah awoke, he KNEW what had been done to him. That is key. Surely, we can assume that if he knew WHAT had been done to him, then by the assignment of the curse, he also seemed to know WHO did that to him... whatever it was. I also liked the comparison Allen made that JESUS is called the son of David, when actually he was the grandson of David. Language was a bit different back then. And any stories about the "sin of Ham" are a lazy reader's myth. So when Noah woke up, he knew what had happened and assigned the punishment to the guilty one, Canaan... period.
  • Does anyone know where the Pretrib Rapture is in the Bible ?

    I can not find it , I only find the 1st resurrection and the coming of Christ our hope on the last day . As Jesus said .

    I was taught it and believed it until I read the Bible for myself ! And low and behold it's not there in word or event , unless you can twist scriptures out of context , but then we could have 300 denominations if that was done .
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Let's see some solid Scriptures! I will wait .
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    You don't comment. You allege, accuse, and confuse baby Christians. You know what you're doing; that's the tragedy.

    I don't see the love of Jesus Christ in you.
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    I'm praying you may find Gods mercy , I'm so blessed now in the Lord and He wants all men to come to repentance. We all make mistakes so let's just be honest to God . Confess our errors and forsake the false gods .
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Let's see some solid Scriptures on the fake rapture ! I will wait !
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    You sound really nasty !

    At least I don't deceive people with fake doctrine!
  • Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Again....accusations.
  • Rob - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Your comments are not surprising to me or concern me . Jesus is Lord ! Born of God in the flesh died , rose again , ascended to heaven coming in glory . Not a fake rapture .

    Not a trinity god of mans making . Repent while you can Jesus is not God , but the Son of God ! I'm very happy in the Lord and know him ! Maybe some day you will ! God bless !
  • Raven - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    Actually if you read revelation chapter 16 verse 15, it says that he comes like a their, and it it right after the 6th vial and just before the 7th vial and the Great wrath. I don't believe it is a pre-trib rapture at all.

    What does Mathew 24:20 mean about flight in the winter and on Sabbath?
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Revelation 16:16
    The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.

    Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,

    Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

    He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

    That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

    He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD. (Psalm 113:4-9)
