Text: REVELATION 8:1-13

Revelation 8:1 And when He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given to him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it to the earth; and there were voices, and thunder, and lightning, and an earthquake.

6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast on the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

8 And the second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood;

9 And a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.

10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning like a lamp, and it fell upon a third of the rivers and upon the springs of water.

11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

12 And the fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun was smitten, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so a third of them was darkened; and the day did not shine for a third of it, and the night likewise.

13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, "Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth because of the remaining voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!"
