The first plague (Bowl) of punishment or wrath goes to those who chose Satan (Antichrist/666) rather than Jesus Christ and received his mark upon their bodies.
“dressed in clean, bright linen, with gold sashes wrapped around their chests.” The passage points out that even though these angels are used to bring destruction to the world for the sins of men, they are described as righteous angels in God’s sight. That is because righteous judgment is being poured out.
These 7 plagues which are the Bowls in Revelation 16 that will be brought by the angels of God, are the final judgments that will satisfy God’s righteous anger towards sinful humanity.
16 So the One seated on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
The angel seized those who have rejected Jesus Christ and cast them into God’s wrath.
Questions to have in mind before interpreting the Scriptures.
What do you really know about Jesus?
Are you tainted with someone else’s understanding of God?
Do you know that a contradiction only occurs when one disagrees with what the Bible plainly says? Are you contradicting what the Bible says about a particular teaching for the one that you prefer?
