Revelation 8:6-12

Revelation 8_6-12.png

Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

10 The 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— 11 the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night. - Revelation 8:6-12

Dear Jesus,

You showed John through these visions of angels sounding trumpets that you control all the forces of nature and the entire planetary system. You have consigned this universe to decay since our first parents fell into sin. For the rest of our lives and into eternity we will see natural disasters. Snow and ice storms, tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires and so much more will keep coming. We can expect for you to touch our planet with trouble in order to call some people home and to cause the rest to reach out to you in prayer. You are God and you will have your way with your planets. I'm so thankful that you came to this planet and saved us so we can be sure we will survive every calamity even if you use one to call us out. We are safe in grace. Help us to tell more people about you before their expiration date arrives.
