Revelation 8:10–11 (ESV)

The Seven Trumpets

10 The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.

 

John sees in the revelation a meteor coming from the sky/heaven and it hits a third of the rivers and springs.  It is affecting fresh water as opposed to the sea.  The falling star has a name “Wormwood.”  The people are no longer able to drink from these rivers.  This reminds us of the Gospel writer Mark who states: “25and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.”[Mark 13:25]  God is in control.

 

I pray: O Lord, in that day, it will not be good to be around, however… help us to always cling to your saving faith.  Help us to endure unto the end.  Amen.
