Revelation 8:1-2 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
The first Trumpet involves the trees and grass.
The Trumpet Judgments start bringing things upon the Earth that are against the normal way we see nature.
January 2012 – Forests are considered one of the world’s largest banks covering about 30 percent of Earth’s land surface. During this disaster one third of the trees will be destroyed by fire.
All the grass on the Earth will be burnt.
“As it were”
The most devastating type of collision would be oceanic. This is also the statistically most probable as just over 70% of the Earth is covered by oceans. The principle effect, after several million tonnes of seawater had been flash-boiled, would be the generation of a tsunami that would wreak catastrophic destruction upon coastal cities and generate human casualties all along the affected coastlines. It has been calculated than an asteroid of roughly 300 m in diameter would generate waves carrying more than 300 times the energy of the 2004 Asian Tsunami.
*(Quote unknown source) “The oceans cover about 75% of the Earth’s surface, so it is likely the asteroid will hit an ocean. The amount of water in the ocean is nowhere near large enough to “cushion” the asteroid. The asteroid will push the water aside and hit the ocean floor to create a large crater. The water pushed aside will form a huge tidal wave, a tsunami. The tidal wave height in meters =10.9 × (distance from impact in kilometers)-0.717 × (energy of impact in megatons TNT)0.495. What this means is that a 10-km asteroid hitting any deep point in the Pacific (the largest ocean) produces a megatsunami along the entire Pacific Rim.
The steam blasts from the water at the crater site rushing back over the hot crater floor will also produce tsunamis following the initial impact tsunami and crustal shifting as a result of the initial impact would produce other tsunamis—a complex train of tsunamis would be created from the initial impact (something not usually shown in disaster movies).
NASA released the new map of potentially hazardous asteroids on Aug. 2, 2013 in a post to its online Planetary Photojournal overseen by the agency’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. The map shows the orbital paths of more than 1,400 asteroids known creep too close to Earth for comfort.”
“as it were a lamp”
Revelation 8:10-11 And 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; And 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.
Think about how ancient olive oil lamps burned. Something like this is coming to Earth.
What will cause the exposed fresh water systems of the Earth to turn bitter and poison many people?
Perhaps the answer is the cyanogen gas contained in the comet’s atmosphere.
Jets spewing from the comet’s nucleus contain cyanogen CN: a poisonous gas found in many comets. It is a colorless, flammable, pungent, highly poisonous gas, C2N2, used as a rocket propellant, an insecticide, and a chemical weapon.
Now astronomers have a new comet to target, though they are using an old probe to study it. After Deep Impact swept past its first target, the mission was given a new name, Epoxi, and sent on an orbit that will bring it to within 430 miles of Harley 2 this week. Already the mission has revealed fresh surprises. Last month, its instruments showed that the comet was emitting a toxic gas called cyanogen whose output increased fivefold over an eight-day period before slowly decreasing again. Mission scientists are still arguing over interpretations of this data.
Comet Lulin, named after the observatory in Taiwan where the discovery-photo was taken, is now approaching Earth. “It is a green beauty that could become visible to the naked eye any day now,” says Ye. Lulin’s green color comes from the gases that make up its Jupiter-sized atmosphere. Jets spewing from the comet’s nucleus contain cyanogen (CN: a poisonous gas found in many comets) and diatomic carbon (C2). Both substances glow green when illuminated by sunlight in the near-vacuum of space.
In 1910, many people panicked when astronomers revealed Earth would pass through the cyanogen-rich tail of Comet Halley. False alarm: The wispy tail of the comet couldn’t penetrate Earth’s dense atmosphere; even it if had penetrated, there wasn’t enough cyanogen to cause real trouble. Comet Lulin will cause even less trouble than Halley did. At closest approach in late February, Lulin will stop 38 million miles short of Earth, utterly harmless. (Don’t worry planet Earth. The scientists will take care of you.)
This thing burning like a lamp won’t just pass by Earth, it will hit Earth.
Do you think it could
never happen again?
Mars passed through the dust from the tail of the comet on October 20, 2014. The comet named Siding Spring was discovered on 3 January 2013 by professional astronomer Robert McNaught at theSiding Spring Observitory at Coonabarabran NSW Australis and received the official designation C/2013 A1. It was named Siding Spring based on a tradition to identify the observatory that discovered it.
The judgment of the 4th Trumpet
The universe is so large that the whole concept is inconceivable.
God will shake the Heavens
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
these things to happen?
High-Energy X-ray View of ‘Hand of God’
Can you see the shape of a hand in this new X-ray image? The hand might look like an X-ray from the doctor’s office, but it is actually a cloud of material ejected from a star that exploded. NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, has imaged the structure in high-energy X-rays for the first time, shown in blue. Lower-energy X-ray light previously detected by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is shown in green and red.
- Nicknamed the “Hand of God,” this object is called a pulsar wind nebula. It’s powered by the leftover, dense core of a star that blew up in a supernova explosion. The stellar corpse, called PSR B1509-58, or B1509 for short, is a pulsar: it rapidly spins around, seven times per second, firing out a particle wind into the material around it — material that was ejected in the star’s explosion. These particles are interacting with magnetic fields around the material, causing it to glow with X-rays. The result is a cloud that, in previous images, looked like an open hand. The pulsar itself can’t be seen in this picture, but is located near the bright white spot.
- One of the big mysteries of this object is whether the pulsar particles are interacting with the material in a specific way to make it look like a hand, or if the material is in fact shaped like a hand.
- NuSTAR’s view is providing new clues to the puzzle. The hand actually shrinks in the NuSTAR image, looking more like a fist, as indicated by the blue color. The northern region, where the fingers are located, shrinks more than the southern part, where a jet lies, implying the two areas are physically different.
- The red cloud at the end of the finger region is a different structure, called RCW 89. Astronomers think the pulsar’s wind is heating the cloud, causing it to glow with lower-energy X-ray light.
- In this image, X-ray light seen by Chandra with energy ranges of 0.5 to 2 kiloelectron volts (keV) and 2 to 4 keV is shown in red and green, respectively, while X-ray light detected by NuSTAR in the higher-energy range of 7 to 25 keV is blue.

“Woe, Woe, Woe”
Things really get bad now!
of The Revelation.
The Destroyer is coming
The sixth Trumpet sounds – Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
The preceding judgment
of the fifth trumpet joined
the physical realm and the spiritual realm.
1. First Woe The Fifth Trumpet – The Bottomless Pit was opened and some of it’s contents came to Earth.
2. Second Woe – The Sixth Trumpet – The four angels which are bound in the Euphrates River will be set free to slay one third of mankind.
3. Third Woe – The Seventh Trumpet – Satan and his angels are cast to Earth
Joining these two realms
will happen two more times.
The Old English word “woe” is used to describe the severity of what will happen.
One woe is past;
and, behold, there come
two woes more hereafter
This judgment deals with fallen angels.
There are many types and duties of Heavenly beings who minister in Godly things. There also seems to be different types and duties of fallen angels and their state or duties to evil
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Jude 6
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 2 Peter 2:4
These chained angels cannot be the same angels as the principalities and powers of darkness which are still in “high places” under the direction of Satan.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
There are four specific angels
which are now bound in the River Euphrates.
This river Originates in eastern Turkey, and flows through Syria and Iraq to join the Tigris in the Shatt al-Arab, which empties into the Persian Gulf.
Revelation 9:12-15 One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
The judgment of the 6th Trumpet
is called the
The number of people killed in this judgment is about one billion, seven hundred million.
Today, a great amount of money and power is being used to stop “climate change” which some say is caused by air pollution. Think for a moment, and consider that in less than three years (including this judgment) about half the people on Earth are killed. The environment is hopelessly lost to the pollution of bodies being cremated by the billions.
In the midst of all this destruction, the news, according to the book of The Revelation is reporting on the judgments and not calling for repentance. People will be shaking their fists at God and cursing Him, if there is a God they say. God answers their accusations with these words: Revelation 9:20-21 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
Revelation 10:1-3 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
Revelation 10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
The Bible does not say when or how John died. We are pretty certain that the book of The Revelation was written around 96 AD. Tradition says John was an old man when he wrote the book and died about 100 AD.
It does not seem possible that upon leaving the Island of Patmos, John was able to accomplish speaking (prophesy) before many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings. However we know this; what was written in the small scroll the angel held was given to him to eat. What was written in the scroll is connected to what he will say some day before many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings. We are just not given the details of what, where, when, why and how it will happen.
