Woe, Woe, Woe


Revelation 8:6-13 (NIV)


The Trumpets

Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.

As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!”
  Irvin Baxter (EndTime.com) tells how he believes these have been fulfilled once.  I wonder if like other birth pang hints, what has been will come again, but with unvarnished wrath.   Irvin says the first is likened to World War I - When Europe was stripped of grass and a third of the trees.   Secondly in World War II when there was such disaster and a third of the world's ships were destroyed.

Thirdly the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 which means "Wormwood".  Which released enormour radiation, damage and death through out Europe the Eastern Bloc and around the world.   Since these are 1 to and 3, it might make sense (might not), that these would be released in successive years during the 7 year trib.   WWI - Nearly 100 years ago. WWII - 70 to 77 years ago, if you wait two years from now. Chernobyl - 30 years ago, if you wait to three years from now.   Don't know - not looking for what's not there, but God often telegraphs His actions and there is often symmetry, precision, control and parallel, if you look.   If this is the year of the Rapture and the first three judgements are in successive years, then I find some symmetry in the dates - that all.   Don't know - regardless be ready.  Tell someone.  Stand your ground.
