Why? Because: "The rest of mankind who survived these plagues (plagues described in the book of Revelation and occurring in those countries overwhelmed by calamities from God) still did not abjure** the gods their hands had fashioned, nor cease their worship of devils and of idols made from gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their sorcery, their fornication, or their robberies." (Rev 9:20,21 NEB). This is a warning to all nations.
As of January 1st 2005, the death toll caused by the mighty angel that occurred on the 26th December 2004 is 125,000 and rising. (N.B. In total 250,000 people were killed).
The Opened "Little Scroll" of Revelation 10:8-11 was completed on April 6th 1996. It began to be written down and made public on earth from December 14th 1976.
The Christ Michael is the "mighty angel" who arrives like a "thief" to rob members of families, friends, and relatives, of their very lives. (Rev 16:15). He proved his power over nature when he caused a massive earthquake under the sea bed of the Indian Ocean and destroyed the coastal regions of surrounding countries by a huge tidal wave (tsunami*).
As the purpose of God and the opportunity for salvation through the "good news" of faith in The Christ has been "brought to a finish", evident by the activities of the "mighty angel", the only opportunity for salvation that remains is that people give glory to God out of fear as they witness calamitous events being brought about on earth by God through His "mighty angel". (Rev 10:7 & 11:13).

"God spoke, and these were His words: I am the Lord your Godů You shall have no other god to set against Me. You shall not make a carved image for yourself nor the likeness of anything in the heavens above, or on the earth below, or in the waters under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God am a jealous God." (From Exodus 20:1-5 NEB).
