Book of Revelation Chapter 15 Summary

Life Is Just a Bowl of Plagues

  • After this, John sees (you guessed it) seven angels carrying seven plagues.
  • He also sees that the people who brought down the Beast are sitting by a sea of glass playing harps and singing songs of praise to God. Because there really is no better way to spend your off time than by a sea of glass.
  • Then John notices that one of those creepy creatures gives the angels seven golden bowls filled with hot steamy portions of God's wrath. Delicious.
