Revelation 8:10-11 (New International Version)


10The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a GREAT STAR, blazing like a TORCH, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11the name of the STAR IS WORMWOOD. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people DIED from the waters that had become bitter.

Under the more outward prophecies of the Old Testament given to the nation of Israel, the falling of stars, sun darkened, etc. often indicated the fall of nations, empires, kings, and rulers.

But in the spiritual meaning of the spiritual book of Revelation given to the body of Christ, when you see all these cataclysmic upheavals it simply means that because of the raising up of Christ in our lives there is a brand new king upon the throne.

Who was ruling before isn’t ruling anymore. Lights have been put out. Strong dominions in our lives have been shaken to their foundations and removed from their places.

Wormwood’s function is to make bitter all rivers and fountains of water, that is, the streams of ideas, concepts, dogmas, traditions, culture, understanding, and worldly wisdom which invigorate and fortify the souls of men in the earth-realm. The beautiful symbolism of the book of Revelation is exceedingly rich in spiritual meaning and the church world has lost most of these wonderful truths in our day through the “literalism” with which the prophecies have been approached.

You can't possibly say the whole book of Rev is symbolic surely??

I can think of many passages in book of Rev that are NOT symbolic.

I believe the accounts given in Revelation are literal. The Star Wormwood is really Planet X, the brown dwarf star which is a companion star of our sun. It is going to arrive into our solar system in 2012 ushering in the natural disasters described in Trumpets 1-4. This star's passage will be the catalyst for the Antichrist's rise to power in the EU.

SIGN-I-FIED

"The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto Him, to show unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His angel unto His servant John" (Rev. 1:1). The word "signified" is the Greek word semaino which is a derivative of the word semo meaning a mark or sign, or to indicate by signs or symbols. The English word could be written SIGN-I-FIED — demonstrating that it means to communicate by means of signs and symbols. Understand that is exactly how the Revelation was communicated to John and the whole book is a book of pictures and symbols.

Understand that a sign is never the reality — it merely points to the reality. The fact that the revelation of Jesus Christ was communicated to John in the form of signs and symbols shows clearly that there is no "literalness" in the book. When you read of mountains, earthquakes, beasts, horns, rivers, seas, stars, sun, moon, heads, marks, horses, wars, floods, angels, books, etc., and other symbols in the book, they are communications of spiritual realities expressed in the form of symbols.

Well, revelation is quite clear this star falls to earth. I think that rules out Planet X. A brown dwarf is much larger than earth.

If you take revelation literally, we should be able to defeat the dragon with a few cruise missiles then.

The Bible tells us the last days will be frightening times. Many things that are happening in the world today indicate we are certainly living in very fearful times. Disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes, flooding, snowstorms and freezing weather in the extreme are reported daily in the news. Many people have already lost loved ones as well as all their possessions in past disasters. Prices on everything are skyrocketing and I wonder how long people will be able to endure without loosing everything.


Timothy tells us in chapter 3, verse 1 that in the last days perilous times will come.
Is the worse behind us or is it going to get worse in the future?

Bible says many people hearts will fail for fear of what is coming our way.
The non saved will be first to experience heart failures because they dont believe in a GOD that is in TOTAL control.
The fear and the worries about our dying EARTH is also making more people suicidle cause they can't see things getting better at all. Polution is all around us!! Our food is also poluted! the air we breath is poluted. The pole's are melting. The sea levels rising each year.

NUCLEAR WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTIONS ARE ON THE INCREASE!

CHRISTIANS SHOULD NOT BE FEARFULL OF THE FUTURE!

Fasten your seat belts as things will surely get worse before the EARTH is made NEW AGAIN BY IT'S OWNER!!

God Yahweh is in control and he has the EARTH in the palm of his hand!!
