Revelation 8:10-11 Wormwood and Meteors

Revelation 8:10-11 The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

This is the second event noted. The event takes place during the tribulation. God’s word leaves no doubt, this is a falling star. The star is described as a great star. The Greek word for great is mega. Again, this is a mega star. It is a huge, large object. This time it hits land and affects rivers and springs. Again, there is fire associated with the star as noted in verse 8-9 and as recently noted with the videos of the Russian meteor. These objects explode in midair.  Balls of fire with trails of smoke are visible for people to see. Parts of the star impact the rivers. Parts of the star are large enough to penetrate the earth’s crust and impact the water springs underground. In total, one third of the rivers and springs are affected.

Remember this book of Revelation was written by an old, elderly man, John, on the island of Patmos as a prisoner on a labor camp. He did not have the benefit of cable TV in the first century to see these events over and over. He did not have the benefit of the scientific community to explain what he saw. John had to take and believe God’s word. John’s written description looks exactly like what we have seen in February 2013 on TV, Youtube, or the Internet with our own eyes here in the 21st century.

The water supply of humanity is impacted by this mega falling star. According to multiple sources, less than 1% of all the water in the world is fresh water for human consumption. Pray this falling star does not impact the Great Lakes area. These lakes account for 84% of the fresh water in North America according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Wormwood is a bitter herb that was used to kill intestinal worms (NET Bible). The bitter star taints the water supply and people die.

Matthew 24:8 “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs” –Jesus, Olivet Discourse.

We see and read the end result in Revelation. But these birth pangs have to start somewhere in time. Birth pangs have a beginning. They become more frequent and more intense as the time draws near. Have the birth pangs started???
