Chapter 16

Revelation 16:1 And I heard a GREAT VOICE {the great voice represents the great voice of thunder that happens when the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky}out of the TEMPLE {representing the immense 40-mile opened mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano} saying to the SEVEN {plagued}ANGELS, Go your ways, and POUR OUT the VIALS of the WRATH of GOD{wrath of the rising seventh plagued angel from the immense opened bottomless pit}upon the EARTH {kingdom of latter day Babylon}.

In the verse of Revelation 16:1, the Apostle John heard a great voice proceeding from the the temple. The great voice represents the great sound of thunder that happens when the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky. The rising magma with its glorious light from the immense mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano is equated with the rising of the seventh plagued angel. The great sound of thunder is referred to as the sound of a great trumpet. From that time, seven plagued angels will exit the temple to pour out their plagues upon the kingdom of the latter day Babylonian beast. The temple represents the immense mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano. The seven plagued angels that consecutively leave the temple in the same day are the wrath of the risen seventh plagued angel.

*******

Revelation 16:2 And the FIRST {first plagued angel}WENT, and POURED out his vial upon the EARTH {latter day kingdom of spiritual Canaan/Babylon}; and there FELL a NOISESOME and GREVIOUS SORE {caused by great hailstones and fiery whirlwinds} upon the MEN {USA's states/spiritual tribes}which had the MARK {spiritual wine/ideals of what the USA envisions for the world's future}of the BEAST {being the latter day Babylonian kingdom’s first and second reigning periods}, and upon them which WORSHIPPED his IMAGE {final/third reigning period of the same latter day beast/kingdom}.


The first angel in Revelation 16:2, who is the personification of its plague, pours out its vial upon the Earth (figurative kingdom of Babylon beginning with the USA). At that time, a noisome and grievous sore by fiery whirlwinds and great hailstones will plague the sons/men (referring to states of the USA) of the false prophet (USA's leadership). These states have the seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast’s mark (ideals) and worship its image (being the latter day Babylonian beast’s final/third reigning period).

The first plagued angel comes out of the temple, just as the intense heat exits the opened immense 40-mile wide magma-filled mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano and causes a great whirlwind of fire to descend around the high and lifted-up mountain of the super volcano. The great whirlwind spawns many thousands of whirlwinds throughout the land while great hailstones rain upon the USA's (false prophet's) states and ruling capital (false prophetess). The many whirlwinds and great hailstones raining upon the land are the noisome and grievous plague, which plagues the false prophet's (USA's leadership) and prophetess' (ruling capital's) sons (representing states) and daughters (representing cities and towns).

The first plagued angel in Revelation 16:2 is the fulfillment of the message beneath the first seal (see Revelation 6:2), first angel’s trumpet (see Revelation 8:7), and the first light of the seventh angel with trumpet.

*******

Revelation 16:3 And the SECOND {plagued}ANGEL POURED out his VIAL upon the SEA {the spiritual sea represents latter day Babylon's/kingdom of combined spiritual rivers/nations}; and it became as the BLOOD{symbolizing death by anarchy}of a DEAD MAN {symbolizing a nation or state}: and EVERY LIVING SOUL {representing every living state or nation} DIED {is no longer a functioning state or nation}in the SEA {sea/kingdom of latter day Babylon}.

The second plagued angel in Revelation 16:3 brings a terrible time of anarchy in the states and nations of the latter day Babylonian beast. Therefore, a state (brother/tribe/nation) will be against another state (brother/tribe/nation) (see Isaiah 9:19-21; Ezekiel 38:19-23).

Isaiah 9:19 Through the wrath of the LORD {seventh plagued angel} of HOSTS {great hailstones} is the land DARKENED, and the people shall be as the fuel of the FIRE {overflowing lava from the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano}: NO MAN {referring to states or nations} shall spare his BROTHER{during a terrible time of anarchy}.

Isaiah 9:20 And HE {nation/state} shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the FLESH {provisions} of his own arm {state/tribe}:

Isaiah 9:21Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this HIS{seventh plagued angel's} anger is not turned away, but his HAND {pertaining to the visions and oracles of the right hand/first witness and left hand/last witness} is STRETCHED OUT STILL {to destroy and dissolve the kingdom of latter day Babylon}.

Ezekiel 38:19 For in MY {seventh plagued angel's} jealousy and in the FIRE {flowing lava} of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that DAY {when the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky} there shall be a GREAT SHAKING {the massive explosion of magma causes a great earthquake such as never happened}in the land of {spiritual}Israel {representing the kingdom of latter day Babylon};

Ezekiel 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at MY PRESENCE {the presence of the seventh plagued angel when he rises as a great star/light with magma from the bottomless pit}, and the mountains shall be thrown down {great earthquake}, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground {by the great earthquake such as never happened}.

Ezekiel 38:21 And I {seventh plagued angel} will call for a SWORD {of anarchy} against HIM {latter day Babylon's kingdom}throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother {from the time the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky, as magma fills the immense mouth and continually overflows}.

Ezekiel 38:22And I {seventh plagued angel} will plead against HIM {latter day Babylon's kingdom} with pestilence and with blood {death}; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing RAIN, and GREAT HAILSTONES{great hailstones raining around the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano}, FIRE {fire with lava}, and BRIMSTONE {burning rock/lava}.

Ezekiel 38:23 Thus will I {seventh plagued angel} MAGNIFY{as a great light with overflowing lava from the immense mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano} MYSELF, and SANCTIFY {pure light emanating from the intense fire and heat of a spreading lake of lava} MYSELF; and I will be KNOWN {as the great lifted up ensign/light} in the eyes of MANY NATIONS {of a great multitude of redeemed that travel to and enter the ensign}, and they shall know that I {seventh plagued angel/risen star/bright light above and around the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano} am the LORD.

The rising of the seventh plagued angel from the high and lifted-up bottomless pit brings death to the USA's states and nations with the sword of anarchy, according to the second angel's plague. In that time, a great multitude of all nations will begin traveling to the fiery ensign as the return of the lost spiritual tribe of spiritual Ephraim.

The second angel’s plague in Revelation 16:3 is the fulfillment of the message beneath the second seal (see Revelation 6:4), second angel with trumpet (see Revelation 8:8), and the second light of the seventh angel with trumpet.

*******

Revelation 16:4 And the THIRD ANGEL POURED out his vial upon the RIVERS {referring to states or nations/spiritual rivers} and FOUNTAINS {referring to capital cities of the states or nations} of WATERS; and they became BLOOD {dead, since they no longer exist as a functioning state or nation}.

Magma will fill the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano to continually overflow from the immense mouth full of a lake of overflowing fire. In that time, the third plagued angel in Revelation 16:4 causes spiritual rivers (referring to states in the USA) and spiritual fountains (representing capital cities of the states) of these spiritual rivers/waters to be smitten to death by famine. Accordingly, they will no longer be a functioning nation. This third plagued angel kills states and nations with famine. Famine will be the plague that will be ruling in states and nations of the fallen latter day Babylonian beast (kingdom).

*******

Revelation 16:5 And I heard the ANGEL {being the third plagued angel's vision and oracle} of the WATERS {spiritual rivers/nations and sea/kingdom of latter day Babylon} say, Thou are righteous, O Lord {seventh plagued angel}, which ART {Art/is shown to be presently reigning when the seven plagued angels begin begin being fulfilled}, and WAST {Wast/Was already reigning earlier in the judgment when the scroll of life revealed the vision concerning the rising of the seventh plagued angel from the immense magma filling mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano}, and SHALT BE {the seventh plagued angel SHALT BE seen again rising as a great light with erupting lava when later in the judgment that event is replayed again when the scroll of life's written visions and oracles are again revealed}, because Thou {seventh plagued angel} hast JUDGED thus.

The angel mentioned in Revelation 16:5 represents the visions and oracles it is revealing and speaking concerning the nations (spiritual waters/rivers) and the kingdom (spiritual sea of combined spiritual waters) of latter day Babylon. The angel states that the seventh plagued angel is righteous, after rising as a great light from the bottomless pit when magma continually fills the immense mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano. Whirlwinds of fire and great hailstones descend upon the land, as the seventh plagued angel descends as an overflowing lake of fire from the high and lifted-up mouth of the super volcano. At that time is the battle of Armageddon, when a spreading lake of lava with whirlwinds of fire and great hailstones will bring anarchy and famine as the nations and kingdom of latter day Babylon is overthrown.

In Revelation 16:5 the scroll of life is again revealing, later in the judgment, the time when the seventh plagued angel rose as a great light with overflowing lava from the high and lifted-up bottomless pit (super volcano), which is replaying the time when the seventh plagued angel began to reign over the kingdom of latter day Babylon. This replayed event of the seventh plagued angel ruling over latter day Babylon had already been revealed earlier in the judgment when the scroll of life was opened and revealed. When the scroll of life is again revealed later in the judgment, it will again replay the time when the seventh plagued angel rose as a great light with magma, rising and overflowing from the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano.

*******

Revelation 16:6 For THEY {states/spiritual tribes and nations} have SHED the BLOOD of SAINTS{apostles and disciples that died believing in a living prophet’s message} and PROPHETS {who manifested in every generation to proclaim their message}, and thou {seventh plagued angel} hast given them BLOOD {representing death by whirlwinds of fire and great hailstones that are represented by riders on white horses, death by anarchy that is represented by riders on red horses, and death by famine that is represented by riders on black horses} to DRINK; for THEY{states and nations of the latter day Babylonian beast} are WORTHY.

In every generation, prophets have been sent to nations where people reside who profess to believe in God. The prophets and their apostles and disciples were persecuted and usually killed by religious and political leaders and their people. After the star falls from heaven and causes the super volcano to erupt smoke and ash continually for five months, the dead of every generation rise to life and health. Among the resurrected people will be the patriarchs, prophets, messiahs, apostles, and disciples of all generations and the rebellious people who persecuted and shed their blood. Accordingly, when the scroll of life reveals a vision showing states, nations, and rebellious peoples (that rejected the everlasting gospel) being killed by an overflowing spreading lake of fire, fiery whirlwinds, great hailstones, anarchy, and famine, they are worthy to spiritually drink that situation because they rejected, persecuted, and killed the latter day messenger's, apostles, and disciples that proclaimed the everlasting gospel and warned of the four riders (visions pertaining to the plagues written on the scroll of life) and their white, red, black, and pale horses (written oracles pertaining to plagues written on the scroll of life). The everlasting gospel is proclaimed during the five months of smoke and ash erupting from the super volcano.

*******

Revelation 16:7 And I HEARD ANOTHER {being the fourth plagued angel's vision and oracle ready to be fulfilled} out of the ALTAR {altar of incense equated with the high and lifted-up lava overflowing mouth of the super volcano} say, Even so, Lord God Almighty {seventh plagued angel}, TRUE and RIGHTEOUS are thy JUDGMENTS {on latter day Babylon's kingdom}.

The angel's voice out of the altar is the voice of the fourth plagued angel, ready to be fulfilled. The voice declares that the seventh plagued angel's (Lord God Almighty) visions and oracles, which are replaying all things that existed and happened truthfully and righteously. These visions and oracles written on the seventh plagued angel (who represents the last small part of the scroll of life) replay exactly how the kingdom of latter day Babylon came to an everlasting end.

The third angel’s plague in Revelation 16:4-7 is the fulfillment of the message beneath the third seal (see Revelation 6:5, 6), visions and thunder of the third angel with trumpet (see Revelation 8:10, 11), and the third light and thunder of the seventh angel with trumpet.

*******

Revelation 16:8 And the FOURTH ANGEL POURED out his VIAL upon the SUN {representing the USA's ruling capital and nation}; and POWER was given unto HIM {fourth plagued angel} to SCORCH MEN {states and nations} with FIRE {fire of the overflowing lake of lava/fire spreading out from the high and lifted-up 40-mile wide mouth of the super volcano}.

The fourth plagued angel is a combination of all three previous plagues. The vision (light) of the USA's ruling capital and nation is as the sun's light (Lucifer) to the kingdom of latter day Babylon. However, lava will spread from the midst of her land as a great expanding lake of fire from the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano. The ruling US capital (equated with the light of the sun) and her states and nations (referred to as men) of the latter day Babylonian beast will be scorched with the great heat that radiates from the immense and expanding lake of lava.

*******

Revelation 16:9 And MEN {spiritual men representing the USA's states and nations of latter day Babylon's kingdom} were scorched with GREAT HEAT {radiating from the thousands of fiery whirlwinds spawned from the immense fiery whirlwinds around the high and lifted-up super volcano. These fiery whirlwinds will carry fire/lava throughout the land}, and BLASPHEMED the NAME of GOD {seventh plagued angel reigning as a great star/light over the immense overflowing lake of fire}, which hath power over these PLAGUES: and they {states and nations} REPENTED NOT to give HIM{seventh plagued angel}GLORY {by declaring that what is happening during the seven plagued angels' fulfillment is according to the visions and oracles that are written on the seventh plagued angel/last small part of the scroll of life}.

The USA's states and nations (spiritual men) of the latter day Babylonian beast will be scorched by the great heat and fire that is carried by the immense fiery whirlwind, that will be around the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano. This immense fiery whirlwind will spawn thousands of smaller fiery whirlwinds that carry fire throughout the land. In that time, the USA's rebellious ruling capital and rebellious nations will, according to their confused beliefs, blaspheme against the visions and oracles of the seventh plagued angel. These visions and oracles replay things just as they happened. However, these rebellious states and nations will not repent and give the credit (glory) of what is happening in the land to the seventh plagued angel's written visions and oracles.

The fourth plagued angel is the fulfillment of the message beneath the fourth seal (see Revelation 6:7, 8), vision and oracle of the fourth angel with trumpet (see Revelation 8:12), and the fourth light and fourth thunder of the seventh angel with trumpet.

*******

Revelation 16:10 And the FIFTH {plagued} ANGEL POURED out his VIAL upon the SEAT {referring to the USA’s ruling capital} of the BEAST {kingdom of latter day Babylon}; and HIS {latter day Babylon’s} KINGDOM was full of DARKNESS{because sunlight is veiled by the smoke and ash that had been erupting for five months from the mouth of the super volcano that brought a terrible time of famine}; and THEY {USA's states}GNAWED their TONGUES for PAIN {being hunger pains},

The fifth plagued angel pours out its plague when total darkness is over the seat (USA’s capital/seat) of the seven-headed ten-horned beast (coalition/kingdom) of latter day Babylon (see Revelation 16:10). From the time of the star's impact, thick black smoke and hot sticky ash will have already issued for five months, which tormented the USA's ruling capital and nation with famine. However, at the end of these five months, when the fifth plagued angel is again fulfilled, total darkness and a terrible famine will then kill one part of each state of the USA. Accordingly, the rebellious people in the USA's states are illustrated as gnawing their tongues because of their terrible hunger pains (see Revelation 16:10).

*******

Revelation 16:11 And BLASPHEMED the GOD {seventh plagued angel/God that rose as a bright star with erupting magma from the immense 40-mile wide mouth overflowing with lava} of HEAVEN {being the high and lifted-up to heaven mountain of the super volcano}because of THEIR {states'}PAINS {terrible hunger pains}and their SORES {caused by great whirlwinds of fire and great hailstones}, and REPENTED NOT of their DEEDS {in wanting their old way of life according to their ideals/mark of the latter day Babylonian beast}.

The hunger pains of the fallen USA's states will be equated with the sting of scorpions. In their distress, they will blaspheme the cause of their terrible hunger pains, which is the visible great light (equated with the seventh plagued angel/God) emanating from the overflowing lava-filled immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano. Accordingly, the remaining rebellious people will not repent of wanting their former life style. Therefore, they will have the mark (ideals) of the beast instead of the seal (mark/written visions and oracles on their forehead/mind) of the seventh plagued angel (God).

*******

Revelation 16:12 And the SIXTH ANGEL POURED out his VIAL upon the GREAT RIVER EUPHRATES {this spiritual river represents the USA, which is the leading nation/spiritual river of latter day Babylon's kingdom/spiritual sea}; and the WATER thereof was DRIED UP {the nation/spiritual river is figuratively swallowed when the super volcano swells to heaven and its immense 40-mile wide mouth explodes magma into the sky, causing a great earthquake such as never happened}, that the WAY of the KINGS{four riders of the white, red, black, and pale horse; these four riders are equated with four Persian Kings that ruled over old Babylon’s kingdom} of the EAST {referring to the land of old Persia, which is in the east} might be prepared.

The sixth plagued angel also reveals the previous five plagued angels, just as the sixth day of Genesis also revealed what had already been created during the previous five days. Accordingly, the sixth plagued angel reveals the first king riding the white horse out of the high and lifted-up to heaven bottomless pit, which is in the USA (the spiritual river/nation that gets swallowed up). This represents the time when the super volcano swelled to heaven and exploded magma into the sky, as rising magma with a great white light fills and overflows from the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up bottomless pit. At that time, great hailstones (equated with riders on white horses) rain upon the land to devour (as flying eagles) the USA's states and cities.

The sixth plagued angel also reveals the time when the second king ascends from the high and lifted-up bottomless pit, which is in the USA (the spiritual river that is swallowed up). The second king is now riding a red horse. The blood-covered white horse is now red because a terrible time of anarchy (blood-shed) will kill one part of the states when lava is overflowing from the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano.

The sixth plagued angel also reveals the time when the third king ascends from the high and lifted-up bottomless pit riding a black horse. The blood-covered white horse is now black because of thick darkness covering the land. A terrible time of famine will now be killing one part of each of the states.

The sixth plagued angel also reveals the time when the fourth king ascends from the high and lifted-up bottomless pit. The blackened, blood-covered white horse is now a pale color, which the pale color is created by mixing the white, red, and black colors. This pale colored horse represents a great whirlwind of fire that materializes around the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano's mountain, upon which is the 40-mile wide mouth overflowing with lava. This immense whirlwind (equated with new Jerusalem) will spawn thousands of smaller whirlwinds that bring death to one part of the USA's states and cities.

In the past type, four kings came from the east (Persia) referred to kings) to overthrow old Babylon, according to the first witness' visions and oracles. These old four kings of Persia reigned over old Babylon with the kings of Media, according to the last witness' visions and oracles. In the latter days, four kings riding four horses will cause latter day Babylon's kingdom to fall, according to the first witness' visions and oracles written on the first side of the scroll of life. According to the last witness' visions and oracles written on the last side of the scroll of life, six kings riding on six horses will cause latter day Babylon's kingdom to fall.

*******

Revelation 16:13 And I saw THREE UNCLEAN SPIRITS {these spirits represent spoken words according to their way of thinking}like FROGS {representing leaders in the USA/spiritual river where these frogs dwell and catch their prey with their tongues/words} COME OUT {during the five months when smoke and ash are erupting from the super volcano when the USA's nation/spiritual river has not yet been dried up} of the MOUTH {USA's leadership} of the DRAGON {latter day Babylon's first reigning period in spiritual Goshen}, and out of the MOUTH {USA's leadership} of the BEAST {latter day Babylon's second and third reigning periods in spiritual Canaan}, and out of the MOUTH {USA's leadership} of the FALSE PROPHET {the false prophet is the USA's leadership}.

The latter day dragon (beast) in spiritual Goshen was reigning as the latter day Babylonian beast during its first of three reigning periods. During that time, the USA's (spiritual river/nation) leadership (equated with frogs) was the false prophet speaking on behalf of the dragon (beast/kingdom) of what the USA's leadership envisioned for the world's future.

The latter day Babylonian beast was reigning in spiritual Canaan during its second and third reigning periods. During those periods, the USA's (spiritual river/nation) leadership (equated with frogs) was the false prophet speaking on behalf of the dragon (beast/kingdom) of what the USA's leadership envisioned for the world's future.

During the time when smoke and ash are erupting for five months from the super volcano, the false prophet (USA's leadership) will be attempting to reassure the nations that the smoke and ash erupting from the super volcano can be overcome. At that time, the USA's leadership will be speaking falsely of what they envision for the world's future, which is opposite to what the two witnesses prophesy concerning this world's fated end.



*******

Revelation 16:14 For THEY {dragon, beast, and false prophet} are the SPIRITS {spoken words} of DEVILS {that devil/tempt nations and peoples by}, working{technological and military}MIRACLES, WHICH GO FORTH {during the time when smoke and ash are issuing from the super volcano} unto the KINGS {nations} of the earth {states of spiritual Canaan} and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that GREAT DAY {the great/big day when the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky}of God Almighty {rising of the seventh plagued angel}.

False hope in words of peace and safety will be spoken by the USA's leadership (tempters/devils) during the time when smoke and ash are erupting from the super volcano. These devils tempt nations to accept the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world's future. During the time of erupting smoke and ash, the USA's states and the world's nations will not forsake the US leadership's ideals that the leadership envisions for the world's future. Accordingly, the final preparation will have taken place in that time for the USA's states and world's nations that have the mark (way of thinking on the forehead/mind) of the beast to fight in the battle of Armageddon. The battle of Armageddon begins on the great (big) day when God Almighty (seventh plagued angel) rises from the super volcano, which happens when the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky. This great explosion causes a great sound of thunder, as a great earthquake such as never happened violently shakes the land. The great sound of thunder with the great earthquake heralds the rising of the seventh plagued angel from the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano. The seventh plagued angel will rise as an intense light (bright star) with rising magma, which fills and overflows from the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano.

*******

Revelation 16:15 Behold, I {living messenger} come as a THIEF {when the manifestation of the living messenger/thief of each generation is replayed when the seventh plagued angel's visions and oracles reveal the time when each scroll was being revealed during the judgment}. Blessed is he that WATCHETH {referring to the overcomers that had watched for the living messenger}, and keepeth his GARMENTS {garments of spiritual light that the overcomers receive again when each generation is replayed}, lest he walk NAKED {without the spiritual clothing of the seventh plagued angel's bright light/visions}, and THEY {people viewing the judgment}see his shame.

The replay of the manifestation of the latter day messenger reveals again the time when he first came as a thief in the night when latter day Babylon was reigning during its first reigning period. From that time, the two witnesses had written on the scroll of life all things they had seen (visions) and heard (oracles). The two witnesses have written on the scroll of life all things that happened from the time the latter day messenger's message dawned from beneath the first seal around the rolled-up scroll of life through to and during the time of the judgment.

All the overcomers will have already received their white garments of new truth (light) from the latter day living messenger. These overcomers will again receive their garments of light (visions) when all generations are replayed during the judgment. Each replay of all generations reveals how the overcomers received their garments of light (present truth) while the people that thought they were clothed with truth are actually seen to be naked

*******

Revelation 16:16 And HE {false prophet/USA} gathered them {deceived nations that have the mark of the beast}together into a {figurative}place called in the Hebrew tongue ARMAGEDDON {typified by old Megiddo where three united nations dwelt in the old land of Canaan}.

The plagues which the seven plagued angels release are equated with the armies of God (seventh plagued angel). The rebellious people and nations that rejected the everlasting gospel will have chosen to battle with these plagues, as they attempt to survive through the terrible time of trouble. Prior to the super volcano swelling high into heaven and exploding magma into the sky, the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world's future, with the influence of its technological and military miracles (sorceries), is conditioning the minds of peoples and nations. Accordingly, the combined nations of latter day Megiddo will fight in the battle of Armageddon (Megiddo) against God’s (seventh plagued angel's) armies armed with figurative bows that fire great hailstones, armies armed with figurative swords that bring bloodshed by anarchy, armies armed with figurative scales that bring death by famine, armies of fiery whirlwinds, and the spreading army of the lake of lava.

Joshua 17:11...And the inhabitants of MEGIDDO{Armegiddo} and her towns, even THREE COUNTRIES {equated with the latter day Babylonian dragon (1st kingdom), beast (2nd kingdom), and its image (3rd kingdom) that prepare to war with the seventh plagued angel (God) during the battle of Armageddon}.

Joshua and Eleazar overthrew the Canaanite nations of Megiddo, just as the two witnesses' written visions and oracles will overthrow the dragon, beast, and false prophet of latter day spiritual Megiddo (Armageddon).

*******

Revelation 16:17 And the SEVENTH {plagued} ANGEL{this seventh plagued angel is divided into seven parts} POURED out his VIAL into the AIR {sky}; and there came a GREAT VOICE {great voice of thunder that happens when the super volcano swells high-up in to heaven and explodes magma into the sky}out of the TEMPLE {representing the immense mouth of the swelled to heaven super volcano} of HEAVEN {sky/heaven}, from the THRONE {where the seventh plagued angel is sitting as a great light over the immense mouth overflowing with lava of the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano}, saying, IT IS DONE {the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of the seventh plagued angel}.

Five months of smoke and ash erupting from the super volcano will have passed. Then the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky. The explosion causes a great earthquake and an incredibly loud sound of thunder to travel throughout the air. This loud sound of thunder is the plague (voice of a great thunder) of the seventh plagued angel being poured into the air, as the seventh plagued angel rises as a great light with magma from the high and lifted0up to heaven bottomless pit.

The immense 40-mile wide mouth, overflowing with lava, of the super volcano is referred to as the open temple in heaven when it has no covering. High above this mouth of an overflowing lake of fire lava sits the seventh plagued angel on his great white throne of intense light, reigning over the kingdom of latter day Babylon.

The seventh plagued angel's voice of a great sound of thunder states that “it is done.” What is done is that the seventh plagued angel will be king of kings and lord of lords. Hence the kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of God (seventh plagued angel).

*******

Revelation 16:18 And THERE {revealed by the seventh plagued angel} were VOICES {huge hailstones caused by the intense heat emanating from the overflowing lake of fire in the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano}, and THUNDERS{thunders above the overflowing lake of fire in the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano}, and LIGHTNINGS {lightnings above the overflowing lake of fire in the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano}, and there was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE {which happens when the super volcano had swelled to heaven and exploded magma into the sky, as magma then began to fill the immense mouth of the super volcano}, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great{a great earthquake such as never happened}.

The normal order is lightnings (equated with visions written on the seventh plagued angel) then thunderings (equated with oracles written on the seventh plagued angel ) then voices of raining great hailstones (equated with the interpretation of the written visions and oracles). The verse in Revelation 16:18 states voices, thunders, and lightnings in reverse order. The reason is that the seventh plagued angel is revealing the beginning of the first plague that will have begun with a great earthquake. The great earthquake happens when the super volcano swells to heaven and explodes magma into the sky. Then as magma fills the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up to heaven super volcano, terrible lightnings and thunders will be seen and heard above the high and lifted-up super volcano, as voices of great hailstones will be raining on the land.

*******

Revelation 16:19 And the GREAT CITY {in the latter days refers to the USA’s ruling capital and her nation}was divided into THREE PARTS {three ways for the US capital and nation to meet death}, and the CITIES of the NATIONS {of latter day Babylon's kingdom} FELL: and GREAT BABYLON {USA’s ruling capital and nation} came in REMEMBERANCE {hence, the fall of great Babylon is being replayed exactly as remembered} before God {seventh plagued angel}, to GIVE unto her the CUP {vial}of the WINE {written plagues} of the FIERCENESS of HIS {seventh plagued angel's} WRATH {the wrath of the rising seventh plagued angel from the swelled to heaven exploded bottomless pit/super volcano}.

In the latter days, the great city mentioned in Revelation 16:19 is the USA's ruling capital. At the explosion of the swelled to heaven super volcano, a great earthquake such as never happened will cause the USA's capital city and nation to be divided in three separate ways. At the same time, the great earthquake brings an end to the reign of capital cities over their nations. The fall of great Babylon (USA's capital, nation, and kingdom) is again remembered in the present replay just as it fell in the previous replay of how things existed and happened. How latter day Babylon fell is remembered at the rising of the seventh plagued angel (God) from the high and lifted-up magma filling immense mouth of the super volcano. The rising seventh plagued angel reveals his anger through the vials poured by the seven plagued angels, which the USA's capital and nation are forced to accept into their hand and drink the terrible bitterness.

At the seventh plague angel's rising, the latter day great city and her nation will be divided into three parts. “One part” of the USA's capital and nation will be killed by arrows of great hailstones. A “second part” of the USA's capital and nation will be slain by the sword of anarchy. A “third part” of the USA's capital and nation will die by scales of hunger. Accordingly, the USA's capital and nation will have met death through the three plagues of arrows (great hailstones), sword (anarchy), and scales (hunger).

Revelation 16:20 And EVERY ISLAND {referring to nations outside the spiritual Canaanite kingdom of latter day Babylon/USA} fled away, and the MOUNTAINS {referring to capitals and cities of these islands}were not found.

The USA's ruling capital and nation will be first to fall by great hailstones, anarchy, and famine. At that time, the kingdom of Babylon will have fallen. The overflowing lake of fire (lava) originating from the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the high and lifted-up super volcano continually expands, casting the USA's ruling capital (false prophetess) and nation (false prophet) into the expanded lake of fire. Thereafter, the expanding lake of fire will swallow all nations, peoples, and tongues outside new Jerusalem (representing the immense fiery whirlwind around the high mountain of the super volcano), as the world is dissolved.

Nations outside the kingdom of latter day Babylon (USA) are referred to as islands, and their cities are referred to as mountains. After the USA's capital and nation end up in the expanding lake of fire (lava), all other cities and nations will cease to operate as cities (referred to as mountains) having a nation (referred to as an Island).

In the past, islands referred to nations outside the land of old Judah (old Judah is a type of the false prophet/USA) and outside the land of old Israel (old Israel typifies the latter day seven-headed ten-horned Canaanite beast/kingdom that is ruled by the USA). The islands (nations) will not be found because the overflowing lake of fire (lava) will spread to dissolve this world. The Earth’s exposed face of magma will spread from the USA to cover the planet, evaporating all rivers, seas, and oceans. As the lake of lava spreads to all nations (islands), it will intensify the anarchy and famine in these figurative islands. During that time, all who refused to be among a great multitude of redeemed – when they are ripened and gathered of all nations into the ensign– will have the mark (way of thinking) of the latter day Babylonian beast having chosen to stay in these islands (nations). Accordingly, these islands will have blasphemed against the living God’s (seventh plagued angel's) predictions by attempting and hoping to maintain the former ideals of the fallen latter day Babylonian kingdom.

Revelation 16:21 And there FELL upon MEN {representing the USA's states/spiritual tribes} a GREAT HAIL {of ice} out of HEAVEN {sky}, every STONE about the weight of a TALENT {about 75 pounds}: and MEN {states/spiritual tribes} BLASPHEMED GOD{rising of the seventh plagued angel from the swelled to heaven bottomless pit} because of the PLAGUE of the HAIL {caused by the extreme heat above the lake of fire in the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the super volcano}; for the PLAGUE {of huge hailstones}thereof was EXCEEDING GREAT.

When the lake of fire is filling the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the super volcano in the USA, it will create intense heat high above and around the super volcano's immense mouth. This incredibly intense heat will cause huge hailstones to form high in the sky (heaven) weighing about 75 pounds, that will rain upon the USA's states (referred to as men/spiritual tribes). The plague of great hailstones raining upon the USA's land is so severe that people will be cursing the rising of the seventh plagued angel, who caused the terrible plague of great hailstones.
