Victorious Saints (Verses 1-4):
A celestial vision unfolds, revealing seven angels with the seven last plagues. These bring to completion God's wrath. Saints who've triumphed over the beast stand on a sea of glass, harps in hand. They sing the song of Moses and the Lamb, praising God's marvelous deeds and righteous ways.
Seven Golden Vials (Verses 5-8):
The temple in heaven opens, and seven angels, dressed in pure white linen, exit holding vials full of God's wrath. One of the four living creatures hands the angels the vials. The temple then fills with smoke, indicating the imminence and seriousness of the judgments to come.
Revelation 15 prepares us for the seven last plagues, which conclude God's wrath. It juxtaposes the fate of the faithful, who sing songs of victory and praise, against the forthcoming judgments. The chapter serves as a solemn introduction to the final plagues, emphasizing the righteousness of God's actions. It reminds us that even in the midst of impending wrath, God's deeds are just and His plans are perfect.

Revelation 15

1  And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

2  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

3  And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

4  Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

5  And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:

6  And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles.

7  And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

8  And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
