Have you ever played hide n seek in your house at night? You turn off all the lights in the house one person counts while the rest go hide then the person that is it has to find all those that are hiding in the dark. It’s hard to feel around in the dark to find someone that is purposely trying to hide and for those that are hiding in the dark, it can be quite eerie even in your own home. What if it wasn’t a game? Revelation 16:10-11 says that during the tribulation a fifth bowl will be poured out on the throne of the beast. The throne of the beast includes all that have taken the mark of the beast and those that have not excepted Jesus Christ as their Savior during that time, those people will be plunged into a darkness that will be so dark it will be painful and cause sores. I can’t imagine how that would feel to be in darkness so dark that not even the most powerful light on earth can’t penetrate it. There is so much darkness in the world today in the way of corruption, drugs, child porn, human trafficking and so many more things that if I made a list it would take a few years and a lot of paper. The best description I can give is like being in the darkest place you can imagine, it is so dark that you can’t see your hand in front of your face that you are instantly terrified. That isn’t even close to the darkness described in Revelation 16:10-11 this darkness is physical darkness it physically hurts, so much so that it causes sores. Physical darkness that penetrates the soul. That is as close to describing what this darkness is going to be like I don’t believe there are any words that can really describe that kind of darkness. What I do know is that is not something I want to experience I would much rather know Jesus Christ as my Savior now that to take a chance on what is coming. I am not trying to scare anyone I just want you to know what is going to happen during the tribulation and this is only one thing. I beg you to do some research on this. Find a spirit filled church and ask the pastor to explain it in terms you may be able to understand. I will leave you to read and research Revelation 16:10-11 and I pray that your spiritual eyes are open and that you will open your heart to Jesus.
Revelation 16:10-11 NKJV
10) Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness, and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. 11) They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores and did not repent of their deeds.
