Revelation 8:12–13 (ESV)

The Seven Trumpets

12The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light might be darkened, and a third of the day might be kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night.

13Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice as it flew directly overhead, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets that the three angels are about to blow!”



This event plagues a third of creation and is remincent of a plague in Egypt in Exodus 10:21-23.  Exodus 10:21–23 (ESV)

The Ninth Plague: Darkness

Exodus 10:21-23 “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, a darkness to be felt.” 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was pitch darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. 23 They did not see one another, nor did anyone rise from his place for three days, but all the people of Israel had light where they lived.


I remember being in an underground cave where the tour guide turned off the lights.  It was pitch black and you could not see your fingers in front of your eyes.  It was scary in knowing you could not find your way out unless you had light.


The eagle crying out “Woe, Woe, Woe” separates the first four trumpets from what is coming up next.


O Lord, I pray that I am not around when this takes place… but if I am, I know you will get me through it.  Help me to trust in your love and saving grace.  Help me to not turn my back on you.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
