TO DISCERN THE WORKS OF EVIL SPIRITS

IV. Discern the spirits

d. The three unclean spirits

The River Euphrates is a boundary line of the Promised Land (Gen. 15:18). When the sixth bowl of wrath is poured out, the water of the River is dried up (Rev.16:12), indicating the defence system of the land is removed. This signifies that a war of immeasurable scale is about to break out. That is why the term “Armageddon” is adopted here (Rev. 16:16). It is one of the greatest battlefields of ancient time. Combining the two ideas together, we can gather that the church of God is about to face the challenge of falsehood of an unprecedented nature.

In this bowl’s message, three unclean spirits are depicted as coming out from the mouths of the Dragon, the beast and the false prophet (Rev. 16:13). The three combined represents the work of falsehood at its highest. They would come to gather to fight against the Lord. In other words, they are prepared to have a final showdown against the church of God. They would do whatever they could to deceive the whole world and everyone in it to go against the church. They will gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty (Rev. 16:14).

The deception they employ is so rife, unpredictable and subtle that the entire world actually comes under their grip (cf. Lk. 21:34f). They are vile and loathsome, having the sole intent of luring the chosen to forsake the Lord. The only way for believers to combat against this relentless attack is by keeping themselves clean (Rev. 16:15). The keeping clean here entails observing the commandments of the Lord, which is also translated as keeping the garments clean (Rev. 22:14). Being unclean blurs the vision, which means we cannot identify the works of the evil spirits. When the word of God is kept, we are empowered to see clearly the destructive works of the spirits.
