    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:1

    ¶ Y vi otra seal en el cielo, grande y admirable, que era siete ngeles que tenían las siete plagas postreras, porque en ellas es consumada la ira de Dios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 15:1

    Verse 1. Seven
    angels having the seven last plagues] Under the emblems of harvest and vintage God's judgments on the enemies of his Church have already been pointed out: but these are farther signified by the seven vials, which are called the seven last plagues of God. The seven last plagues appear to fall under the seventh and last trumpet. As the seventh seal contained the seven trumpets, so the seventh trumpet contains the seven vials. And as seven angels sounded the seven trumpets, so seven angels are appointed to pour out the seven vials, angels being always the ministers of Providence. This chapter contains the opening vision which is preparatory to the pouring out of the vials.

    The Targum of Jonathan on Isa. li. 17, Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the Lord the cup of his fury, uses the same words employed by the evangelist here: "Jerusalem, thou hast received from the face of the Lord the cup of his wrath; afwld ask ylyp ty yath pailey casa dilvata, "the PHIALS of the cup of malediction " find again on Isa. li. 22: I will take out of thy hand the cup of malediction; ytmjd ask ylyp ty yath PAILEY casa dechemti, "the PHIALS of the cup of my indignation."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous , etc.] This chapter is a preparation to the pouring out of the seven vials, as ( Revelation 16:1-21) is to the sending of the seven epistles, and ( Revelation 2:1-3:22) to the seven seals and seven trumpets: the vision is called a sign, because what was seen was significative of future events; a sign of the coming of Christ, of his kingdom, and of the destruction of antichrist; and it is said to be a sign in heaven, where John was called up, and where he had his visions; and it was another, a different one from that in ( Revelation 12:1) which represented the downfall of Paganism, but this the downfall of Popery; and it is a very great one, it is expressive of great things, as the fall of Babylon the great, or the judgment of the great whore, and the great glory of the church and kingdom of Christ; and it is marvellous, for the two grand events it respects are very wonderful; as that antichrist, who was once in such power, should be destroyed, and that by such weak means, in the esteem of men, as the preaching of the Gospel, which is no less marvellous than the fall of Jericho by the sound of rams' horns; and that the church, which was in so low an estate in the wilderness, for the space of 1260 days or years, should become so glorious. The vision follows, seven angels, having the seven last plagues ; these are not the same angels that blew the seven trumpets, for they are not contemporary with them, but are more likely the same with those in the preceding chapter; though they seem rather to be different from them: if these were angels literally understood, their having plagues is no objection to their being good angels, since such are often the executioners of God's wrath; and that these good ones, appears from one of them talking with John, and showing him the judgment of antichrist, and another the bride, the Lamb's wife, and her glory, ( Revelation 17:1 21:9) though they seem rather to be the ministers of the Gospel, since they are said to come out of the temple, ( Revelation 15:6) and since the destruction of antichrist will be by the breath of Christ's mouth, or by the preaching of the Gospel; unless it should be thought that members of churches are designed, since these angels receive their vials from one of the four living creatures, ( Revelation 15:7) or preachers of the word; and may denote some very principal men, as kings, who will now be come to Zion, and be members of Gospel churches, and will be the nursing fathers and protectors of them; and these will hate the whore, and burn her flesh with fire; but of these angels, see more on ( Revelation 15:6). They are said to have the seven last plagues; that is, in their vials; for these seven plagues are the same with the seven vials of the wrath of God, to be poured out upon antichrist; and are no other than so many steps, ways, and means, by which God will bring on and finish his destruction: these are called the last plagues, because they will be in the last days: there have been plagues before, as at the destruction of the old world, and of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the plagues of Egypt, and the downfall of several monarchies and kingdoms, and of Paganism in the Roman empire; but these will fall upon antichrist, and will be the last upon him, for they will issue in his utter ruin; they will be the last plagues upon the earth, there will be no other after them, but the conflagration of the world, and the general destruction of the wicked in hell. These plagues are the same with the third woe, and are an explanation of it, and belong to the sounding of the seventh trumpet, which brings in the kingdoms of this world to become the kingdoms of Christ, and the time of God's wrath upon the nations, or Gentiles, the Papists, and of judging the dead, and destroying them that destroyed the earth, ( Revelation 11:15,18) for these plagues do not follow upon the harvest and vintage, nor has this vision any respect to them, nor to be connected with the preceding chapter, but with ( Revelation 11:1-19) and gives an enlarged view, both of the glory of Christ's kingdom, and of the ruin of antichrist, by these plagues, called the last: for in them is filled up the wrath of God ; upon the beast, and his followers.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - Seven
    angels appeared in heaven; prepared to finish the destruction of antichrist. As the measure of Babylon's sins was filled up, it find the full measure of Divine wrath. While believers stand in this world in times of trouble, as upon a sea of glass mingled with fire, they ma look forward to their final deliverance, while new mercies call fort new hymns of praise. The more we know of God's wonderful works, the more we shall praise his greatness as the Lord God Almighty, the Creator and Ruler of all worlds; but his title of Emmanuel, the King of saints, will make him dear to us. Who that considers the power of God' wrath, the value of his favour, or the glory of his holiness, woul refuse to fear and honour him alone? His praise is above heaven an earth.
