Prophesy Of Revelation 8

8 When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. 2 Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. 3 And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, 4 and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel. 5 Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings,[a] flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.

6 Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to blow them.

7 The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, and these were thrown upon the earth. And a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

8 The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

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.[b] 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!”

That passage is a metaphor for the political situation of the time. The writer couldn't come out and say anything about the Roman government directly, so he expressed it in poetic terms.

Also, has anyone noticed that it's written in the past tense? This isn't a "prophecy" of something in the future; it's a description of something in the past.

[@733370,GodSpeed63] I know exactly what the word "fact" means. It is you who repeatedly confuse facts with fantasy. Your "facts" (q.v.) - [quote]Facts concerning what? Here are some facts for you: I was dead and now I live, I was lost and now I'm found, I was blind, and now I see, and I was deaf, and now I hear.[/quote] make that abundantly clear.

So far you hadn't shown it. All you know how to do is ridicule, mock, and act worse than jackass. You care nothing for facts.

My ancestors tried to go to Jerusalem in 1884 because they were convinced the end was nigh and they wanted to 'be there and watch it happen'. The Ottoman Turks wouldn't let them in so they came to America instead. I don't get too excited about end times and end time prophecy. Jesus was, is and shall always be, in control. I put my faith in HIM.

[@1026,GeorgeWashingtonJr] So did our wife/sister told you to hate Trump. obviously you aren't bright enough to figure it out on your own.
[@10033,hippyjoe1955] Your wife/sister told you that?

Before you notice and change it, you said "So did [b][u]our[/u][/b] wife/sister told you to hate Trump." A Freudian slip, perhaps?

I think you are a little late. 10 was chernobyl.

[@131646,Steve42] [quote]I think you are a little late.[/quote]

Why do you say that?
Nah man.
But you're in good company because people have been making the same prediction you just have for literally centuries.
They're always so sure that they've got it right this time.
They're always so sure that the signs of the times point to the end times.
They're always so sure that it's going to happen in their lifetime.

Spoilers: they were all wrong too....

Psalm 14:1 To the choirmaster. Of David. The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.

The Word of God

[@580625,QuixoticSoul]As if that alters what has already been established to be true.
