Third & Fourth Trumpet Judgments

Let us look at how the heavenly signs align with the scripture in Revelation.

Comet coming down to earth burning like a torch in the heavens

The Comet Giacobini–Zinner brings a bright plasma tail to the night skies by the middle of the month.  It is as if the view of burning like a torch is described in the scripture that brings in the Third Trumpet Judgment.

Revelation 8:10 (NASB)“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.”

Jacob’s Comet - Giacobini-Zinner (NASA JPL) Draconids:

The Draconids are the remnant of Comet Giacobini-Zinner. The name Giacobini is derived from the Hebrew, “Yaakov” or Jacob, meaning “following-after”.  The Draconids are meteor showers around the Comet Giacobini.

The comet Giacobini-Zinner is associated with meteor showers named the Draconids.  That is why the scripture says “fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters.”  A meteor shower is many objects falling to the earth which could easily affect the rivers and spring waters on the earth making them poisonous.

Revelation 8:11 (NASB) “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.”

Night skies have radiant light in thirds The night skies are shining with radiant light from the eclipsed sun that has set below the earth.  The radiant light has changed from the “V” shape into a cone or pear shaped light object, where one-third is brighter. This reflects the Fourth Trumpet Judgment by God.

Revelation 8:12 (NASB) “The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.”

Aquila depicted as an Eagle (J. Aspin, 1825) Constellation of Aquila:

"Aquila the Eagle is said to have acuteness of his eyes.  For, Aquila is said to have such wonderful eyesight that, when he is poised above the seas on motionless plume - not even visible to the human gaze - yet from such a height he can see the little fishes swimming, and, coming down like a thunderbolt, he can carry off his captured prey to the shore, on the wing."  This bird brings back the thunderbolts which Jupiter has flung and fights in the service of heaven.

The brighter one-third reveals the Constellation of Aquila near the earth.  Aquila represents an eagle in the mid-heavens, since it is near the earth. Scripture says the eagle flying in the heavens shouts with a loud voice – Woe, woe, woe to those on the earth.

Revelation 8:13 (NASB) “Then I looked, and I heard an eagle flying in mid-heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
