SCRIPTURE: Revelation 16:12-16

On yesterday, we began looking at the final phase of judgment that will take place during the Tribulation -- the seven vial, or bowl, judgments. These are the most severe and complete of the judgments that we have seen. We covered the first five of these judgments, which are as follows: 

After the fifth vial judgment is poured out, the Bible tells us that those on earth who have pledged their allegiance to the antichrist still refuse to repent and turn to God. Instead they "blaspheme God in their hearts". 

Today, we will look at the sixth vial as it is poured out. This vial represents the culmination of all of the disobedience and defiance of mankind upon the earth. Verse 12 of our passage states, "And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared." The Euphrates River was the eastern limit of the old Roman Empire and it has long served as a natural boundary between East and West for centuries. Now, it is dried up to prepare the way for the great Eastern Kings -- some say these will be the armies of China, India, and Japan -- who will march against the Holy Land to gather in the valley of Armageddon.

Today, I want us to notice three things about the sixth vial which tells us of the armies that gather for the battle of Armageddon. 

1. First of all, I want you to notice the influence of the devil.

2. Secondly, I want you to notice the words of the Lord.

3. Thirdly, I want you to notice the gathering of armies.
