In chapter 15, we have seven angels with seven plagues, followed in chapter 16 by seven bowls of God’s wrath that are poured out over the earth. Whether one reads these image-filled chapters as an account of final judgment or that of God’s judgment against Jerusalem, the two chapters convey the message that when God issues his judgment, there is no struggle against Him.
Notice Rev 16:16: “And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.” Much is made of this by secular literature, etc., yet there is no reference whatsoever to any battle. There is nothing but God’s judgment being carried out on the wicked.
