The Second Trumpet (Sea Meteor)
The second trumpet calls something like a large mountain or meteor on the ocean and turns a third of it to blood. A third of all living creatures in the sea also die and a third of all ships are destroyed.
● Something large falling into the sea and turning the water to blood
● 1/3 of sea creatures dead
● 1/3 ships destroyed
“Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
This judgement being a meteor is important to note because is says a third of all ships will be destroyed. The destruction of so many ships can only occur from a huge tsunami overturning and sinking them. For approximately one third of all ships on earth to be destroyed by a tsunami in 2020 (about 18,000 ships), requires it to either strike the North Pacific Ocean or the North Atlantic Ocean. Depending on the size of the meteor some boats further from the impact zone may be shaken violently but not destroyed making it harder to place the approximate area it will strike.
To further complicate matters generally space objects are monitored by space agencies prior to their impact and will warn the public so they can get their ships out of the way. This means that either the meteor surprises everyone on earth or they wilfully hide the fact it’s coming.
To view marine traffic take a look at: www.marinetraffic.com/. I recommend turning on the density map to see the most common routes and then clicking ‘playback’ to remove the current ship markers. Your guess to where it will strike is as good as mine.
If it strikes the North Pacific Ocean, the tsunami will cover more sea than anywhere else. Countries such as: America, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Japan, China, Indonesia, Papua New Guniea, Australia and New Zealand are likely to experience the catastrophic effects of the wave striking the mainland.
If it strikes the North Atlantic Ocean, the tsunami will cover less ground than the Pacific but the Atlantic contains more sea traffic. Countries such as: America, Canada, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Brazil, Mauritania, Senegal, Western Sahara, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, France, Ireland, England, Iceland and Greenland are likely to experience the catastrophic effects of the wave striking the mainland.
The countries in both these lists are America and Canada, so be prepared if you live in either of these countries. Also remember that God works in mysterious ways and it may still strike the unlikiest of seas like the Indian Ocean or the Mediterranean Sea, so search the scriptures. (Acts 17:11)
The different types of ships sailing the ocean today include: Military Vessels, Cargo Vessels, Tankers, Passenger Vessels, High Speed Craft, Tugs, Fishing Ships and Pleasure Craft (Cruisers). If the ships only carrying people are destroyed, people will die, but if one of the oil tankers or cargo ships sinks this will become a huge problem as oil and debris fills the ocean harming all types of ocean dwelling animals. This could be part of the reason why 1/3 of ocean dwelling creatures perish, alongside whatever blood-like compounds were in the meteor which leach into the water – further killing sea life.
The more literally we interpret the bible, it seems the more it makes sense. The blood is therefore probably real blood, including any other blood-related judgements in Revelation. An important factor to note is that in Exodus when the waters were turned to blood, it included even small ponds and lakes which were separated from the main body. The waters stunk and those in Egypt disdainfully drank the water.
○ Mountain & Fire
● Exodus 24:17 “The sight of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain…”

● Hebrews 12:18 “For you have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire…”
● Psalm 83:14 “As the fire burns the woods, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire,”
● 6th Seal (Revelation 6:12) “…and the moon became like blood.”
● 2nd Bowl (Revelation 16:3) “…and it became blood as of a dead man; and every living creature in the sea died.”
● 3rd Bowl (Revelation 16:4) “…poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood.”
● 1st Plague (Exodus 7:14-25) “…and they [the waters] shall be turned to blood.”
