Revelation 16:3–7 (ESV)
Seven Bowls of Wrath (Part 2)
3The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became like the blood of a corpse, and every living thing died that was in the sea.
third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of water, and they became blood. 5And I heard the angel in charge of the waters say,
“Just are you, O Holy One, who is and who was,
for you brought these judgments.
6 For they
have shed the blood of saints and prophets,
and you have given them blood to drink.
It is what they deserve!”
7And I heard the altar saying,
“Yes, Lord God the Almighty,
true and just are your judgments!”
This bowl of wrath takes us back to the plague in
Exodus where Moses (through the power of God), turns water into blood. This bowl effects the sea, while the third bowl effects the fresh water sources, like rivers, springs, and lakes.
I pray: O Lord, help me to never forget you, nor doubt your powers. I don’t need proof, I simply trust in the faith you have given me. Amen.
