Judgment is poured out by martyred Jews


Rev. 15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous,

[1] seven angels [messengers, (Rev. 17:1; Rev. 19:10; Rev. 22:6-9)]

[2] having the seven last plagues;

[a.] for in them is filled up the wrath of God.


The Jewish elect gain victory over the beast


15:2 And I saw as it were

[1] a sea of glass [Rev. 4:6] mingled with fire: and

[2] them that had gotten the victory

[1] over the beast [the victory of death (c/p. Rev. 14:13; Rev. 20:4)], and

[2] over his image, and

[3] over his mark, [and]

[4] over the number of his name,

stand [redeemed] on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

15:3 And they sing

[1] the song of Moses [only a Jew would sing the song of Moses] the servant of God,

[2] and the song of the Lamb [these are redeemed Jews, saved during the last 3 years of this age: the period of the wrath of God],


[a.] Great and marvellous [are] thy works, Lord God Almighty;

[b.] just and true [are] thy ways, thou King of saints.

15:4 [c.] Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and

[d.] [who shall not] glorify thy name?

[e.] for [thou] only [art] holy:

[f.] for all nations shall come and worship before thee;

[g.] for thy judgments are made manifest.


The Jewish messengers receive final instructions before executing judgment


15:5 And after that [literally, after these things] I looked, and, behold,

[1] the temple

[a.] of the tabernacle

[b.] of the testimony

[c.] in heaven

was opened:

15:6 And

[2] the seven angels [messengers]

[a.] came out of the temple [where they serve Jesus day and night (Rev. 7:15)],

                        [b.] having the seven plagues,

[c.] clothed in pure and white linen [the righteousness of redeemed men (Rev. 19:8)], and

[d.] having their breasts girded with golden girdles [these messengers are dressed like Jesus (Rev. 1:13)].


The seven vials of the wrath of God given to the messengers


15:7 And one of the four beasts [zoe] gave

[1] unto the seven angels [messengers]

[2] seven golden vials full of the wrath of God,

[a.] who liveth for ever and ever.


The judgment is set


15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke

[1] from the glory of God, and

[2] from his power; and

[3] no man [the glory of God was too strong for any of these seven human messengers which had just come out of the temple (vs. 15:6)] was able to enter into the temple [c/p. 2 Chron. 5:13-14], till the

[a.] seven plagues of the seven angels [messengers] were fulfilled
