Rivers and fountains of waters (Revelation 16:4)


And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

Revelation 16:4 - King James


⚪ The Scriptures

Rev. 16 [...]
16:4. And the third [angel] poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters. — It seemed to the worshippers of the beast and his image that the teachings of Volume III of the Scripture Studies had contaminated the Scriptures, the Waters of Life, at their very source, by extending the call to people to come out of Babylon while they were busy trying to get people in.

⚫ The rivers of civilization (talk, palaver, etc...)

Rev. 16 [...]
"And the third poured out hill bowl into the rivers and the fountains of the waters; and it became blood." (Vs, 4, R.V. ) [...] The "rivers" into which this bowl was poured out represent the rivers of civilization, so called, and all the agencies thereof, including "the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth" in his attempt to swallow up God's people. (Rev. 12:15, 16) These 'water fountains' are effusions, talk, palaver and the schemes of men, sent forth like rivers into and among the peoples of earth by those who claim that they have power to make the earth a fit place in which to live.
