I saw another great and astonishing sign in heaven: seven angels who
have the seven last plagues. They are the last because in them God’s anger is
Then I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who
had been victorious over the beast, his image and the number of his name.
They were standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God.
They sang the
song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb: “Great and
astonishing are Your works, Lord God, the Almighty! Just and true are
Your ways, King over the nations. 4 Who will not fear You, Lord, and praise
Your name? For You alone are holy. All the nations will come and
worship before You because Your righteous acts have been revealed.” 5 After this I looked, and the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in
heaven was opened.
6 The seven angels who had the seven plagues came out of the temple, dressed in clean, bright linen, and wearing wide golden belts around their chests.
7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the anger of God, who lives to the ages of the ages. 8 The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His
power. So no one was able to enter the temple until the seven plagues of the
seven angels were finished.
A title exclusively used for the One God, the Father and never for Jesus, who is “a divine
hero” in Isa. 9:6, certainly not El Shaddai, the pantokrator, the Almighty. Jesus stated in John 17:3 that the Father is “the only one who is true God.” This is an unarguable unitarian statement. 1300 times in
the NT God is said to be the Father. Cp. Mal. 2:10 which encapsulates the biblical definition of God.
One of masses of unitarian descriptions of the God of the Bible, the God of Israel, and the
God of Jesus.
