Two woes down, one to go

Revelation Bible Background

12.20.2017 – New Testament: Rev 11.14

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 11 on December 20, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

After showing the first two woes (an angel flying in heaven had announced that there would be three woes), John said,

The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly (Revelation 11.14).

A “woe” was something bad, something awful to experience, and John said the earth had already experienced two woes and the earth still had yet another one to go.

That may sound frightening, but remember that the Holy Spirit sent the Book of Revelation to the church that we might know that the Lord of heaven and earth is for us. It is our enemies who need to fear the coming of the woes.
