Revelation 16

Chapter 16:

v. 14: Although, in a very real sense, God has been avenging his martyrs with each of these bowls and trumpets, the “great day of God the Almighty” in which he exacts his full vengeance, has not occurred.  Beast I is still in authority over the earth, which means that the 3 ½ years of 13:7-8 have not passed by the time of the blowing of the sixth trumpet and the pouring of the sixth bowl.  Since the next event is the pouring of the seventh and last bowl, the great day itself must come at that time.

v. 15: Here and in 3:3, John is alluding to the words of Christ recorded in places like Matthew 24:43.  Therefore, I guess that Christ’s descriptions of “that day” (Matthew 24:36), which are recorded in Matthew 24-25, apply to “the great day of God the Almighty” (v.14).  This great day is the day of Christ’s return and the battle of Armageddon.
