Est. date fulfilled:

95 AD


The Seven Plagues prophesied in Revelation 15 and 16, bring ultimate destruction to the earth and all that dwell in it. They are poured at the sounding of the 7th Trumpet. This is God's wrath on the beast and his followers who refuse to repent. It will cause the ultimate destruction of planet earth, which will be thoroughly cleansed of wickedness. In John's prophetic vision, given on the island of Patmos, seven angels pour seven vials containing devastating plagues onto the earth.

  • The Seven Vials are poured out at the sounding of the 7th trumpet. (Rev. 16:2)
  • The first angel poured out his vial upon the earth (Rev. 16:2)
  • There fell a noisome* and grievous** sore on the men having the mark* of the beast. (Rev. 16:2)

*noisome - Strongs G2556 injurious, bad, evil, harm, ill, noisome, wicked

**mark - Strongs G5480 scratch, etching, same as G5482: to sharpen to a point, through the idea of scratching; a stake, a palisade or rampart
