God will give the inhabitants of the Earth blood to drink, literally

The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say:

“You are just in these judgments, O Holy One,
    you who are and who were;
for they have shed the blood of your holy people and your prophets,
    and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve.”

And I heard the altar respond:

“Yes, Lord God Almighty,
true and just are your judgments.” (Revelation 16:5-7)

In this passage we see that God literally gives the inhabitants of the Earth blood to drink. There are no doubt some who say that the God of the book of Revelations is a violent, evil, blood thirsty God who enjoys hurting people. But that is not the case here. God did not start this war; the Beast-worshippers martyred the believers first, only afterwards does He punish them as they deserve. It is fitting that a just and loving God should seek justice for the hundreds of thousands who will have been murdered in cold blood. Indeed, these judgments are “just and true.” They are made by the “Lord God Almighty” “You who are and who were.” It is His job, not ours, to judge evil.
