Today we’ll continue our study of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. We have already seen and talked about the 7 sealed judgments and now a new series of judgments worse than the seals. The 7 trumpets of judgments.
With The 2nd series of judgments, the 7 angles are sounding their trumpets, as each trumpet is sounded the more stressful it becomes for the earth dwellers, imagine all these things are coming on the earth dwellers and there’s no end in sight, these trumpet judgments are not over after a few minutes, they are steadily becoming worse and worse as each new trumpet compounds in severity.
We have already talked about the 1st 3 trumpet judgments, lets read again verses 7-11 to do with the 1st 3 and then we’ll move on to where we’re at today, and that is verse 12.
8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
The entire earth is being bombarded with “hail and fire mingled with blood” as 1/3 rd of all vegetation is destroyed with fire.
8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
Here we’re told that 1/3rd of all the water that are in the seas and oceans turn into blood when this Hugh Meteorite object hits the water, and that 1/3rd of all life in the sea die, and it seems as when this Meteorite object hits the sea that it causes gigantic Tsunamis as 1/3rd of all ships are destroyed.
10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Well here we’re told that God has a special star for this particular mission, its name is “WORMWOOD” and as it is traveling across the skies of the earth it is dropping its poisonous particles into the drinking water of all the earth, and the 1/3 part of all drinking water has become poisonous to any and all that drink it, they die.
Ø Later on as we read about the “BOWL JUDGMENTS” we’ll read that all water becomes literal BLOOD.
Revelation 16:3-4 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.
4And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.—not as it were blood, but became blood.
I believe this verse just as much as I do “JN. 3:16” .
With each series of judgments it becomes worse and worse.
Ø And now lets take up where we left off last time with the 4th angel about to sound his trumpet.
