Revelation: The Fuel Project Guide Part 35 – The Seven Bowls
The Fuel Project study guide to the Book of Revelation.
In this video Mark says that Revelation 16 completes God’s wrath against wickedness, as a final set of seven plagues is poured out on the earth. These plagues culminate in the battle of Armageddon.
Mark’s explanation of Revelation 16 is biblically and historically inaccurate.
In the Revelation 14 Catholic Harvest study, you learned that there are two separate mentions of the mark of the beast in the Bible, one that was fulfilled in the 16th-18th centuries; and one that comes during the reign of the earth beast in the last days.
In the 16th-18th centuries, France, Spain and other European countries, had many Catholics, including their kings, who worshiped the Pope. They bowed to his authority and they obeyed his commands.
They had the mark of the beast on them, not physically, but symbolically. Their worship of the Pope is the mark on their forehead. Their obedience of his commands is the mark on their hand. This tells us what the mark really means.
France was called the Eldest Son of the Papal Church, because their leaders diligently followed the Pope’s orders.
France was split between Catholics and Protestants called the Huguenots, so the Pope caused the King of France to have his people make war with the Protestants.
At the St. Batholomew’s Day Massacre in 1572, they killed 10′s of thousands of Huguenots.
The persecution in France was so severe, that no Protestants were left, as a million of them had either been killed or they fled.
Because France, Spain and other countries worshiped the Pope, bowed to his authority and followed his commands to kill millions of Protestants, they had the mark of the beast on them, so our Lord poured out His wrath on them with the bowl judgments.
Revelation 16:1-2, Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth.” So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.
They worshiped the beasts “image”, not a statue, like in the Bible version that Mark uses. The office of the Papacy represents themselves as the image of Christ, the Vicar of Christ.
The 1st Bowl was poured out when the Jesuits caused the foul and loathsome sore of atheism to spread across France. The French Protestants had been killed, so the Catholic religion was all that was left. And the Lord allowed the abomination of atheism to turn the people away from the Papal Church.
Revelation 16:3, Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.
Revelation 17:15 tells us that water represents people, “The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.“
A sea is a large group of people, such as those in Paris, not a physical sea or ocean like Mark says.
The 2nd Bowl was poured out as the Jesuits incited the French people to revolt against the Catholic Church leaders and France’s leaders, and their heads rolled. During the French Revolution 250,000 were killed in the very places that the French Protestants had been killed.
Revelation 16:4-7, Then the third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. And I heard the angel of the waters saying: “You are righteous, O Lord, The One who is and who was and who is to be, Because You have judged these things. For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, And You have given them blood to drink. For it is their just due.”And I heard another from the altar saying, “Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.”
Rivers and springs represent people that are spread out in the smaller cities.
The 3rd Bowl was poured out as the bloody French Revolution spread out from the major cities (seas) to the more rural areas (rivers and springs, smaller groups of people) where they had shed the blood of saints and prophets, and now it was time for them to drink the same fate.
Revelation 16:8-9, Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.
The Sun represents leadership, in this case it represents Napoleon Bonaparte, who had seized power after the French Revolution.
The 4th Bowl was poured out as the Jesuits caused the bloody Napoleonic wars with countries that had previously banned them, so they were getting their revenge. Our Sovereign Lord used it to exact revenge against the countries that had shed the blood of His followers. But the leaders of the countries did not repent, they blasphemed God for His punishment, and they later came back under Catholic/Jesuit control.
Revelation 16:10-11, Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.
The 5th Bowl was poured out on the seat of the beast, as the office of the Papacy lost their power in 1798 A.D. Shortly after the French Revolution, the Papal States were invaded by French forces, and they removed Pope Pius VI, who died in exile in Valence (France) in 1799, resulting in the deadly head wound. Their 1,260 reign was ended by the hand of the Lord, but they repented not. They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and sores of losing their power.
Revelation 16:12-16, Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.
The 6th Bowl was poured out to dry up the Ottoman Empire, the people (river) of the Euphrates who had been released during the 6th Trumpet of Revelation 9. During the 18th and 19th centuries, they lost control of the territories that they had occupied. They lost control of Palestine to General Allenby of Great Britain in 1917 A.D.
The Lord caused the Ottoman Empire to lose control of Palestine, so that “the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.”
Since then the Jesuits have created events that pushed Ashkenazi Jews into the Palestine area, to justify the creation of the state of Israel.
The Jesuits control Israel, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. It will be the place where they will position their False Messiah, to join the world’s major religions of Judaism, Islam and Christianity, together in their New World Order, in the name of peace.
Revelation 16:13-14, “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
This represents Satan empowering the Jesuits who control America, to cause all of the countries of the world to come under the control of their New World Order. When it is formed, it will wage war against the followers of Christ.
Note that in Revelation 16:15 Jesus is warning His followers “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”
This is telling us that His followers have not been raptured, they are still here.
This matches up with 1 Thessalonians 5:2, “For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”
This is where we are at in the Revelation timeline.
Revelation 16:16, And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.
The deceiver would have you believe that this represents many countries attacking the state of Israel, and they may cause that to happen to promote their agenda.
But the war of Armageddon really represents Satan causing the followers of Christ, spiritual Israelites, to become the enemy of the world in the New World Order, so that people worldwide will attack them.
Revelation 16:17-21, Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.
Mark says that the Great City is Jerusalem, but the Bible applies the term “Great city” to Gibeon, Nineveh, and the holy Jerusalem, so it’s not exclusive to the city of Jerusalem.
Revelation 18:19 tells us that it is not a physical city, “Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls!”
It symbolically represents Babylon the Great, the Jesuit-controlled Roman Catholic Church, whose influence is worldwide; which opposes Christ’s followers who make up the great city of New Jerusalem.
Ultimately it comes down to Satan vs. Christ, Satan’s false church vs. Christ’s true Church, and Satan’s deceptions vs. Christ’s truth in the Word of God.
Earthquakes in prophecy represent government upheaval, so the mighty and great earthquake in Revelation 16:18 symbolizes the forming of the New World Order, which is split into three parts, which will control the world.
The religion part is already based in the city-state of Vatican City; the financial part is already based in the city-state of London; and the military part is already based in the city-state of Washington D.C.
“The cities of the nations fell” and “every island fled away, and the mountains were not found” speak of the time when the great countries and cities will lose their independent powers, and be subservient to the New World Order.
As you learned the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th Trumpets study, “hail” in prophecy means war, so great hail may indicate nuclear war. It could mean an atomic WW III, no doubt between Christian American and Muslim countries.
Mark referenced Revelation 11:8, saying that the Two Witnesses laid dead in the Great City of Jerusalem, but that is not accurate. Read The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11.
