Revelation 16:1-2 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple telling the seven angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God." 2 So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and harmful and painful sores came upon the people who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.
All the people on the earth who had the mark of the beast (the Anti-Christ) received harmful and painful sores as the angel poured out God’s wrath on them. The people with the mark of the beast worshiped its image (the image of a man). Imagine the news as this was happening around the world. All medical facilities would be overwhelmed and unable to do anything about the sores. Imagine the confusion and terror that overtook the world. The entire Church (all Christians) had disappeared for no apparent reason, caught up to be with the returning Christ in the twinkling of an eye. Now all who worshiped the image of the beast were covered with harmful and painful sores.
Today, Jesus has revealed to each Christian through His word what will take place in the future. We are to make these truths known to our family, friends, neighbors and associates. The conversation could take place as follows:
“Do you know that one day there will be no Church in the world? The only people left will be atheists and worshippers of a world ruler who apparently died but came back to life.”
“No, I have never heard that. How do you know?”
“Jesus has revealed these facts in the Bible.” Would like to hear more?
As believers we have a responsibility to make known the Truth to as many as we can. Will you be a bold and loving Truth teller to the people in your sphere of influence? You may be their only opportunity to escape the wrath of God.
