THE SEVEN BOWLS OF THE SEVEN PLAGUES-continued
Rev 16:16 And the demonic spirits gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place with the Hebrew name Armageddon.
Rev 16:17 Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air. And a mighty shout came from the throne in the Temple, saying, "It is finished!" Rev 16:18 Then the thunder crashed and rolled, and lightning flashed. And a great earthquake struck—the worst since people were placed on the earth.
The seventh angel poured out the bowl there may have been a shout from the throne, the martyrs, but it also contains, thunder lightening hail and earthquakes virtually demolishing most everything on earth. The earth as we know it is all gone. There are so many faults in the earth's core that if they all moved at once it is easy to see the massive destruction that would have occurred. In modern day we have seen catastrophes one or two at a time. From Live science : The unexpected disaster was neither the largest nor deadliest earthquake and tsunami to strike this century. That record goes to the 2004 Banda-Aceh earthquake and tsunami in Sumatra, a magnitude-9.1, which killed more than 230,000 people. But Japan's one-two punch proved especially devastating for the earthquake-savvy country, because few scientists had predicted the country would experience such a large earthquake and tsunami
Rev 16:19 The great city of Babylon split into three sections, and the cities of many nations fell into heaps of rubble. So God remembered all of Babylon's sins, and He made her drink the cup that was filled with the wine of His fierce wrath. Rev 16:20 And every island disappeared, and all the mountains were leveled. Rev 16:21 There was a terrible hailstorm, and hailstones weighing as much as seventy-five pounds fell from the sky onto the people below. They cursed God because of the terrible plague of the hailstorm
The City of Babylon was the possibly the first city in the world that had 200,000 residents. Now it is a bump in the sand only. It was a Sodom and Gomorrah of its time. I do not think that Babylon will be resurrected but the idea will. These writings were in a time when Babylon was a great city. People possibly thought that it was invincible.
