In Revelation 18:20 the righteous are told to rejoice over the fall of Jerusalem (cp. Psalm 96:11-13), and this includes the slain Apostles and prophets that the Lord had sent to her (Luke 11:49-50). At long last, judgment had come, and the righteous had been vindicated (Revelation 6:9-11). The seventh bowl of the Lord’s wrath was poured out “into the air,” and it was done (Revelation 16:17).

The **air** doesn’t seem to mean atmosphere, but is, rather, a symbol of “the course of the world” or the “spirit that works in the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2). I mentioned this Scripture in the previous study concerning the three unclean spirits like frogs. In this study I intend to consider Ephesians 2:2 once more, giving it a slightly different nuance.
