WHY... the Seven Last Plagues?
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892
Died: January 16, 1986
Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

If God is LOVE, why will He punish humanity by sending the frightful plagues depicted so vividly in the Book of Revelation? Many believe that the plagues of Egypt and the seven last plagues constitute the one great exception to the statement: "God is LOVE" A common idea is that God is about to close probation - that the time of salvation will soon be over - that no people can be saved thereafter. Then, according to this conception, a God of Wrath will glut his rage and revengeful passion by pouring our vials of torture upon defenseless, helpless heads. A doomed humanity will suffer the most excruciating pains imaginable. This is a PAGAN conception of a god capable of all the base passions of degraded men. This concept is not true!
