The third, and final woe.
Revelation 8:13 KJVS
“And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”
The third and final woe is the voice of the trumpet when the seventh angel sounds.
Revelation 11:14-18 KJVS
The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever .  And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,  Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.  And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”
This great tribulation (Jeremiah Chapter 30) of all mighty God will come after the Satan’s tribulation of those days, and those days represent the five-month long hour of temptation.
Matthew 24:29-30 KJVS
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
The Son of man, who is Jesus Christ will return to destroy Them that destroy the earth, with the brightness of His coming.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 KJVS
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:”
When the seventh angel sounds, Satan’s tribulation will end, and our Heavenly Fathers great tribulation will begin. This is the passing of the woe of the sixth trumpet, to the woe of the seventh trumpet that will happen at the end of the five-month long hour of temptation, and those who will have destroyed the earth, will have to be destroyed.
When the third and final woe falls upon the earth which will happen when the true Christ returns, all tribes of the earth will mourn because they will realize they were worshipping Satan who will claim to be Christ during the woe of the sixth trumpet.
All tribes of the earth at that time will consist of all who are found remaining in Satan’s deception when the true Christ returns.
Matthew 24:30-31 KJVS
“And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
I believe we see this day of our Lord’s vengeance and wrath spoken about in the book of Nahum Chapter 1. This is the burden of Nineveh which is connected with burden of the Babylon (Isaiah Chapter 13 verses 1 through 27). Here in Nahum Chapter 1, we receive a prophetic look into the ending of Daniels 70th Week, when Satan’s five-month long tribulation ends and his role of the last king of Babylon, along with his fallen angels are destroyed.
Nahum 1:1-2 KJVS
“The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.  God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.”
When the true Christ comes back at the Woe of the Seventh Trumpet, which is immediately after the latter half (2 and a half months) of the five-month long hour of temptation, He will be jealous, and furious. He will then take vengeance on His adversaries which are those who have destroyed the earth.
In Nahum Chapter 1 verse 2, you see “the Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries”, and I believe God’s adversaries are Satan, his role of false prophet (false Christ), and his fallen angels (which includes his ten supernatural kings).
Revelation 19:11-16 KJVS
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
You can see Christ isn’t to happy when He returns with His Angels at this third and final woe, the woe of the seventh trumpet.
Upon His return, His adversaries will feel His vengeance
Revelation 19:19-20 KJVS
“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
Satan’s role of the false Christ which is the false prophet (not Satan himself yet,) and his fallen angels which includes the ten supernatural kings that make up Daniel Chapter sevens exclusively supernatural fourth beast, will be destroyed upon the true Christ return. Satan’s dominion that he had upon the earth claiming to be the true Christ along with his supernatural cohorts will be taken away.
Satan is, and always has been the main adversary to God and His children as it is written in 1st Peter Chapter 5.
1 Peter 5:8 KJVS
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
I believe Satan’s fallen angels which are part of Satan and surely who are adversaries to our Heavenly Father, will be the clouds that are without water (Jude Chapter 1:12) that will be made dust under the true Christ feet when He returns.
Nahum 1:3 KJVS
“The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked : the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.”
This non-acquittal for the wicked includes Satan’s fallen angels because as it is written in the book of Jude verse 6, and in 2nd Peter Chapter 2 verse 4, they are reserved for their appointed destruction upon the true Christ return.
Satan’s role of false prophet, and his fallen angels will be cast into the lake of fire when this third and final woe begins, and at the same time Satan himself will be cast into the bottomless pit for 1000 years. When Satan is cast into the pit he will be shut up and sealed so those who were gathered by these adversaries and made enemies to our Heavenly Father during the woe of the sixth trumpet, can receive our Heavenly Fathers wrath throughout the woe of the seventh trumpet.
Revelation 20:1-3 KJVS
“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,  And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
The last adversary that will be left to destroy is Satan (himself) who is also known as Death.
Revelation 20:7-10 KJVS
“And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,  And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.  And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
Satan will not be acquitted for he is the main adversary that will ultimately go into perdition after the 1000 years is expired (Hebrews Chapter 2 verses 14 and 15.)
This death sentence which is his non-acquittal at the end of the 1000 years (Millennium) is also prophesied in Ezekiel Chapter 28 verses 18 through 19.
We’ve seen in this study what will happen to our Heavenly Fathers adversaries, what about His enemies?
Nahum 1:2 KJVS
“God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.”
Next, we will look at the great winepress of the wrath of God that will be upon His enemies during that great day of our Lord, the seventh trumpet.
Woe to them!
To be continued.
