Revelation 16: The Seven Vials Of The Seventh Trumpet
"And I heard a great voice out of the Temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the Earth"
The English-language words "vial" and "phial" originated from an ancient Greek word, pronounced fh-eye-ha. It referred to a (usually) glass container or bottle that was used for holding and dispensing medicines. While some translations use "bowl" rather than "vial," the original Greek word of the Scriptures referred to a vial, as shown below, rather than what most people today think of as a bowl.
In keeping with the medicinal use of vials, the seven "vials" of the seventh Trumpet (see The Seals, Trumpets And Vials Of The Messiah's Return) that will be applied just before the Messiah's return will dispense the "medicine" that humanity needs to be cured of its Satanic arrogance.
"16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
