    Your command of self-lock or self-wipe will be sent to device through your Gmail account. If the thief didn't change anything on phone, as soon as it has access to internet it will run your commands. – SarpSTA Feb 25 '16 at 20:06

Yes, Android Device Manager will send the phone the Lock and Erase message as soon as it comes online and starts communicating with Google's servers. When the wipe occurs you will receive an email stating when and where it happened.
