The First Bowl (Loathsome Sores)
The first bowl pours out foul and loathsome sores on everyone with the mark of the beast or worshiped the antichrists image. The sores are unique to those with the mark of the beast on their head or right hand, which – due to lack of research could be the cause of the sores. Be warned that as a Christian during this period you will easily stand out due to your lack of sores. The antichrist himself probably won’t have the mark of himself and therefore might not be subjected to these sores.
● Sores and pain for those who have the mark of the beast and worship his image
“So the first went and poured out his bowl upon the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image.”
It sounds like these sores cover the whole body of those with the mark and not just the area around the mark. They will also be foul, meaning that they will both look absolutely putrid and smell revolting. People won’t want to come near each other because of the stench and many contact based jobs will have to be suspended. Sex will also likely be avoided until the sores go away. Loathsome could imply that people will utterly hate these sores and their own bodies and will seek to remove them by any means possible. It is unknown how long this bowl judgement will last and if the sores will remedy themselves or last through to the end of the tribulation.
○ Sores & Pain
● 5th Trumpet (Revelation 9:5) “And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.”
● 5th Bowl (Revelation 16:10) “and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain.”
● 6th Plague (Exodus 9:9) “…and it will cause boils that break out in sores on man and beast…”
