Sixth Bowl

The first four “ bowls ” targeted the economy of the  World Empire , and the fifth destroyed its political power. Now, the sixth “ bowl ” unleashes demonic forces that gather the “ kings of the earth ” to the final battle of the “ Great Day of God the Almighty ,” namely, “ Armageddon .”

Kings of the East

The “ sixth bowl of wrath ” presents an army led by the “ kings from the east ” from beyond the Euphrates River, a picture derived from prophecies of Babylon's overthrow by the “ Medes and Persians .” At the end of the age, God will use a “pagan” force once again to destroy “ Babylon ,” only this time, “ Mystery Babylon ” of the last days.

His Supremacy

The faithful witness, Jesus, now reigns supreme over the kings of the earth and even his enemies .  And in  Revelation , Jesus is called the “ ruler of the kings of the earth ,” and this is declared using the  PRESENT TENSE . His absolute sovereignty over the earth is based on his past death and resurrection,  NOT  on hereditary rights, economic or military might. He is the anointed king who now reigns from the “ throne of David .”
