The earth has endured countless judgments at this point, yet the worst is still to come. The seal judgments affected one-fourth of the world, the trumpet judgments affected one-third of what remained, and now the bowl judgments will affect what remains on the earth. The beast is indwelt by satan, and his right hand man, the false prophet, is demanding all people worship the beast. Those who refuse will be executed.
Therefore, rejoice, O heavens! And you who live in the heavens, rejoice! But terror will come on the earth and the sea, for the devil has come down to you in great anger, knowing that he has little time. (Revelation 12:12, NLT)
