Revelation 8: Will You Escape The Wormwood?
Verse of the Day: (V11) “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 bitter.”
1. Waters (V1-10)
V10 “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;”
Finally, the Almighty God revealed to Apostle John the seventh and last seal by sending seven angels with seven trumpets who are about to sound and send forth His most severe judgment on the entire world during the Great Tribulation period - which is a period after the Rapture where all Christians are caught up into heaven and God actually restrain the working of His Spirit thus allow the Devil to have full control of the whole world. There shall be complete silence of half an hour before God commands His first angel to sound the trumpet and send hail and fire mingled with blood that burns one third of the earth. The second angel then sounds and sends something like a great mountain burning with fire into the oceans turning one third of the oceans into blood resulting in the death of one third of all sea creatures as well as the destruction of one third of the ships in the seas.
2. Wormwood (V11-12)
V12 “And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.”
The third angel sounds and sends a great falling star, which is called Wormwood that is poisonous, into the seas and rivers resulting in the death of many who drink the poisonous water. The fourth angel sounds and destroys the third part of the sun, the moon as well as the stars resulting in one third darkness of the world and creating great chaos.
3. Woe (V13)
V13 “And I beheld, and hear an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!”
Let us not delay our decision to believe and trust in Jesus Christ because the terrible day will come when we will suffer much as we live through the Great Tribulation period. It will be a woeful and troubled time because we will beg God to let us die as His judgments are too severe upon us. My friends, today is the day of salvation, and let us repent our sins, and believe and receive Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour and Lord!
Prayer of the Day:
Dearest God, thank You that I escape from the Wormwood because I believe in You.
