The First Trumpet (1/3 Vegetation Struck)
The first trumpet rains hail and fire down mixed with blood, burning a third of the trees up and all the green grass.
● Hail and fire falling
● Huge forest fires
● All grass burnt up
“The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.”
The first trumpet is likely to involve meteorites entering earth’s atmosphere as we orbit the sun. These meteors will be large enough to make it to the ground to start fires while also being able to hit every nation on earth due to earth’s axial spin. There are two ways that the green grass burning up could be interpreted, the first is that 100% of the green grass on the planet is burnt up, or 100% of the grass on 1/3 of the planet is burnt up.
Then there’s the matter that it also rains hail which consists of water. Which seemingly would have the reverse effect and slow the spread of the fires? I’m not even sure how blood could be mingled with all of it and what effects that would have on the earth. If there’s anything you should be grateful for in the tribulation it’s that you get to see God’s word fulfill itself, seeing exactly what He means by each of the prophecies.
○ Hail & Fire Falling
● 7th Plague (Exodus 9:24) “So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail…”
● Joshua 10:11 “…the Lord cast down large hailstones from heaven on them as far as Azekah”
● 7th Trumpet (Revelation 11:19) “And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.”
● 7th Bowl (Revelation 16:17) “And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.”
