I may have mentioned this before, I知 sorry if I did, & forgot:
Revelation 16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
  9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

(Apparently the angel doesn稚 have to fly 93 million miles to do this.
It would seem that angels are able to come out of heaven, like from another dimension, to come out exactly where they need to be.
The pouring out of his vial affects the sun, so that with the power given to him, he can scorch men with fire.
This may happen in various parts of the world, but this is not global warming, he does not heat up the atmospheric temperature.
But rather he is able to direct this, and scorch men with actual fire.
We all have seen when a grill flares up, that the flame touches, and scorches the meat on the grill.
So, are these specific, targeted solar flares, that reach far enough to scorch men?
Or is this something unique, a special power never seen before?
Plants and animals are not mentioned as being scorched or burned up, nor does it mention cities being burned up.
Nor does it even mention that any men are killed by this.
So, is the angel able to direct something from the sun, to scorch the men, without scorching or burning anything else, or killing anyone?
If so, then this may not be a full worldwide judgment, but targets specific places and people.
Also, Jesus own will probably be protected, like Israel was in Goshen, while Egypt was plagued.)

(For many years I heard or read that all the seal, trumpet, and vial judgments are fully worldwide, like:)

Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Revelation 9:18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

(That these two, alone, kill half the population of the world.
e.g. 8 billion people: シ is 2 billion killed, leaving 6 billion, then is 2 billion, leaving 4 billion, which is half of the original 8.
However, it doesn稚 explicitly say that all the judgments are fully worldwide.
And that the majority of the world is dead by the time of the 6th vial.
And that all the oceans are destroyed, and that all the fresh water of the world is blood, nor that most of the planet is burned up.
Because, then it would be difficult for all those ruined nations, to instead of having their armies help rescue survivors, 
put out fires, deliver food, and rebuild their country, to instead, suddenly send all their armies to Armageddon at the 6th vial.
Also, in Revelation 6:8 it doesn稚 say that they kill a fourth part of the earth,
but, rather, it appears that they are given power over the fourth part of the earth, to be able to kill people in that fourth part of the earth.
Also, for Babylon to be still living deliciously as late as:)

Revelation 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

And that Babylon still living deliciously as late as :)

Revelation 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

(And for trading merchants to only then, at the destruction of Babylon, in chapter 18, to weep and mourn:)

Revelation 18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

(Also, Jesus is probably not plaguing believers during the tribulation, either.)

(However, the result of these plagues, is for men to blaspheme the name of God, which has power over these plagues.
They know that it is the wrath of Jesus:)

Revelation 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
  17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

(So, apparently, that is the name that they blaspheme, the name of Jesus.
It says that they repented not to give him glory.
Do they purposely do this in order for Jesus to not be glorified by their repentance?
What madness this really is, since Jesus is glorified not only if they repent, but also for his righteous judgment on those who won稚.
Also, this indicates that at this very late moment in the tribulation, Jesus is still looking for people to repent and believe:)

II Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
