An engineer at the Kennedy Space Center told me to read Revelation 8:10-11. It says: “The third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”
This space engineer said, “That is the best description you will ever read of an Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) reentering the atmosphere. It looks like a falling star.” The results are the same as the prophecy. A nuclear bomb turns water into a deadly poison.
". . . The third part of trees and all grass will burn:" (Rev. 8:7).
". . . Ships will burn and fish will die: “And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed” (Rev. 8:9).
“And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise” (Rev. 8:12).
“Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth” (Zech. 14:12). In Japan the atomic bombs made men’s eyes melt in their sockets and their flesh was consumed.
We do not know when history ends but, the stage is being set and the weapons are in place.
Christ assures those who believe: “When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh” (Luke 21:28).
