Revelation 8:10–13 (ESV)
THIRD AND FOURTH TRUMPET
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.
12 The 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.
13 Then 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!”
After surviving the first two Trumpets, could you imagine seeing
a star falling through the sky and hitting the Earth and many more people die. Then at the sound of the fourth trumpet, everything becomes dimmer as a portion of the sun, moon, and stars are struck and go dim. As you are trying to figure out what
is going on, an eagle flies overhead crying out “woe, woe, woe to those who dewll on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets that the three angels are about to blow!” I’m sure if you were there, the fact that an eagle is speaking
in your language is not a concern, but the warning he gives is a concern. Just what is coming next? I pray: Lord, this sounds like a dreaded time that no one would want to go through. Lord, help me to spread the Gospel of what Jesus
has done for us so that they will not have to go through this and they will live eternity in peace. Amen.
