Notice, nobody knows why this is happening. What is happening? A foreshadowing of what is to come. When the main event happens it will be in the midst of hellish death and destruction. For now, it is during days of relative normalcy. Why? Infinite mercy and grace. The advance warning fireballs and earthquakes are other foreshadowing events that pre-signal what is to come.
Rev 16:3The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died.
4The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. 5Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:
“You are just in these judgments, O Holy One,
you who are and who were;
6for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets,
and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.”
How many people will 'get it' before all hell breaks loose? How many people will turn and repent of their ways before getting kicked in the teeth by the main event judgements/wrath? I don't know but my guess is, few will give thought to their ways. Why repent when a person does not believe they are doing anything wrong? This world teaches people to "do what thou wilt" and that is the whole extent of the law (satanism). They don't even blush at their sin because they do not see their actions as sinful.
Am I their judge? No, but there is One who judges all things and it appears His wrath is on the way.
Why write this? The work the Lord has given this writer is to point to and draw attention toward what the Lord is already doing or has already done. There is nothing new under the sun. There is no new message here. Look and see what the Lord is doing and what He plans to do! Tell those with ears to hear to turn back to their Creator today because time is in short supply.
