Was the answer to the meaning of the seven thunders given us in this particular chapter, in chapter fifteen? Do the seven thunders represent the seven angels bringing us seven plagues, seven great calamities that the people of this world will be the recipients of? It is quite obvious that God in not happy with the response that the people of this world have given him. Has He decided to annihilate everything and everyone on this planet and start all over again as He has done it many times in the past?

God's seven angelic entities, standing close to His throne in heaven, will now unleash new calamities upon our world. The reason : the people of this world still refuse to search for God, for His envoys, and for the new teachings that they bring us. Most people are happy to stay with spiritual teachings that are thousands of years old. Why? Is there something wrong with the new sent to us by God Himself? How is our world ever going to advance spiritually if no new spiritual teachings are ever given to its people?

Then I saw another great and astonishing portent in heaven : seven angels with seven plagues, the last plagues of all, for with them the wrath of God is consummated. Revelation 15 : 1

We are told in this chapter that seven angelic entities will bring us seven plagues that the people of this planet will be the recipients of. We have already discovered, in a previous chapter, that the same seven angels represent the seven Spirits of God. Those Spirits were those of the seven major prophets who brought new religions to mankind at different historical intervals.

The plagues are the very last that will affect humanity on this planet, after which the wrath of God against the people of this world will be consummated. Those plagues will surely prove to be very severe and very disastrous for all of mankind that still refuses to search for the truth. We have been warned but we are still refusing to listen so we will pay the price.

The majority of the people of this world seem to accept only what they are told by their persistent spiritual teachers who claim complete authority over the truth, which they obviously know very little about.

I saw what seemed a sea of glass shot with fire, and beside the sea of glass, holding the harps which God had given them, were those who had won victory over the beast and its image and the number of its name. They were singing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, as they chanted : "Great and marvellous are your deeds, O Lord God, sovereign over all ; just and true are your ways, you are King of the nations. Who shall not revere you, Lord, and do homage to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations shall come and worship in your presence, for your just dealings stand revealed." Revelation 15 : 2 to 15 : 4

In verse two, the people who had won victory over the beast in the past are the spiritual few who managed to comprehend that spiritual teachers were led by the beast who was wrongly teaching its followers. They are mentioned in verse three as being those who accepted the teachings of Moses and others who accepted the teachings of the Lamb.

Those who accepted the teachings of Moses belong to the Jewish religion and the others who accepted the teachings of the Lamb are Christians, they are those who have accepted the teachings of Jesus Christ who was that Lamb. Those who won victory over the beast are those who did not accept the false teachings of that beast, given by some of the clergy or on their behalf.

After this, as I looked, the sanctuary of the heavenly Tent of Testimony was thrown open, and out of it came the seven angels with the seven plagues. They were robed in fine linen, clean and shining, and had golden girdles round their breasts. Then one of the four living creatures gave the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever; and the sanctuary was filled with smoke from the glory of God and his power, so that no one could enter it until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed. Revelation 15 : 5 to 15 : 8

Those descriptions are very symbolic. They are describing certain events that occurred in the spiritual world. The seven angels, who are the seven spirits of God, will now send us the last seven plagues that God will ever send to mankind on this planet.

The prophecy also mentions a sanctuary, which is a place where someone goes into hiding or takes refuge. So it is said that the sanctuary was hidden by smoke. As we previously discovered, smoke symbolically represents obscurity. The Glory of God and His power represents a very powerful entity, it is somebody's name. It is the name of someone who is very important and very powerful in the spirit world, we have already discovered who He is. He was the returned Christ and His name is Baha'u'llah. It is a very strange name indeed, is it not?

The Glory of God mentioned also represents the great prince of Persia. It represents the biblical Michael, He is the spiritual entity that looks like God. He is the Glory of God and His strange name has been mentioned two more times in the last chapters of the writings of Revelation, written by my favourite Apostle John.

The following presentation concerns God's wrath upon the people of this world. It also explains how God will save His chosen people, those who have searched for Him. That soon to occur event is referred to as the "Rapture" by the Christians.
