http://AdventMessage.com - Advent Message now brings you, The Seven Last Plagues Explained. Over time we have heard a lot about the seven last plagues written in the Book of Revelation. Many are frightened and wonder what they really are, and when and where they will fall. But the burning question on everyone's mind is: Will the plagues fall on me? Inside this edition of the Advent Message, we'll take a good, long hard look at what the Bible truly says about the Seven Last Plagues of Revelation. My name is Brent Whinfield, and I'm a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, and THIS is the Advent Message. "And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues..." Rev. 15:6 God’s retribution falls on those who worship the beast and his image in defiance of God’s requirements. These plagues are not the result of natural forces; rather they are dictated by God and overseen by Christ and the angels. "And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God…" Rev. 15:7. The living creatures, the cherubim, are associated with God’s throne. Their tasks appear to be associated with its administration. This includes the administration of justice. God’s wrath unleashed. "For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:29 "…and no one was able to enter into the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.: Rev. 15:8 Here we are given a glimpse of the awfulness of God’s wrath. It is so fearful that not even an angel can remain in His presence. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Hebrews 10:31 The recipients of God’s wrath are those who reject the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6-12. This is a fearful warning which reinforces the critical importance of those three messages. Currently there is Someone in the temple - Christ Jesus - the one mediator between God and men. (2 Timothy 2:5). However, once the plagues commence, no one will stand between the guilty and the God they have offended because Christ’s intercession will have ceased. This also applies to the work of the Holy Spirit, our spiritual intercessor, who will have withdrawn from the earth. Consequently, at the close of earth’s probation divine restraint will be withdrawn and the human race will be under Satan’s complete control. The Spirit of Prophecy describes it this way: "When He leaves the sanctuary, darkness covers the inhabitants of the earth. In that fearful time the righteous must live in the sight of a holy God without an intercessor. The restraint which has been upon the wicked is removed, and Satan has entire control of the finally impenitent. God’s long-suffering has ended. The world has rejected His mercy, despised His love, and trampled upon His law. The wicked have passed the boundary of their probation; the Spirit of God, persistently resisted, has been at last withdrawn. Unsheltered by divine grace, they have no protection from the wicked one. Satan will then plunge the inhabitants of the earth into one great, final trouble." Great Controversy, Page 614 The plagues are poured out upon six entities – the earth, sea, waters, sun, atmosphere and peoples of the planet.
