    Revelation 8

    1 When the Lamb (JESUS) opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.(THIS WILL MOST LIKELY OCCUR BECAUSE OF THE ANTICIPATION THAT AN EXTREMELY SEVERE PUNISHMENT FROM GOD IS ABOUT TO OCCUR) 2 I noticed that the seven angels who stood before God were each given a trumpet.3 Another angel, who had a gold container for incense, came and stood at the altar. This one was given a large quantity of incense to offer with the prayers of God's people on the gold altar in front of the throne.4 Then the smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God's people, went up to God from the hand of the angel. 5 After this, the angel filled the incense container with fire from the altar ( THIS ALTER IS  A MEMORIAL FOR THE CRUCIFIXION) and threw it on  to the earth. Thunder roared, lightning flashed, and the earth shook.(STILL MORE MASSIVE EARTHQUAKES THAT HAVE BEEN DESCRIBED PREVIOUSLY) 6 The seven angels now prepared to blow their trumpets.7 When the first angel blew his trumpet, hail and fire mixed with blood were thrown down on to the earth.(NOTHING SYMBOLIC HERE,THIS WILL LITERALLY FULFILL THE ASTONISHING PROPHECY IN THE BOOK OF JOEL 2:30-32) A third of the earth, a third of the trees, and all grass was burned.(THIS WILL DO WONDERS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE GRASS GROWING UP TO THEIR HOMES. NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO CLAIM THAT THEY WERE NOT GIVEN AMPLE WARNING OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THE WORLD AND THE COMING JUDGMENT WILL THEY?) 8 When the second angel blew his trumpet, something like a great fiery mountain (THIS IS LIKELY TO BE A METEORITE) was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood,(GOD CREATED THIS TYPE OF DESTRUCTION ONCE BEFORE AS EX. 7:20-21 DESCRIBES) 9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships (IN THE AREA OF THE METEORITE STRIKE) were destroyed.10 When the third angel blew his trumpet, a great star (LIKELY TO BE A HUGE METEOR ) fell from heaven. It was burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers (THIS IS THOUGHT TO REFER TO THE RIVERS IN THE COUNTRIES THAT WERE PART OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE THAT WAS IN EXISTENCE WHEN THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN) and on a third of the fountains of water.(THIS COULD REFER TO NATURAL UNDERGROUND SPRINGS THAT PROVIDE DRINKING WATER) 11 The name of the star was Wormwood, and a third of the water turned bitter. Many people died because the water was so bitter.(IT IS THOUGHT THAT THIS METEOR WILL BE CONTAMINATED WITH CHEMICALS FROM THE POISONOUS WORMWOOD PLANT WHICH IS MENTIONED IN JER.9:15) 12 When the fourth angel blew his trumpet, a third of the sun, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars were struck.(JESUS DISCUSSED THESE EVENTS AND STATED THAT THEY WERE SIGNS OF HIS SOON ARRIVAL TO ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM ON EARTH - LUKE 21:25) They each lost a third of their light. So during a third of the day there was no light, and a third of the night was also without light. 13 Then I looked and saw a lone angel flying across the sky. It was shouting, "Trouble, trouble, trouble (THIS REFERS TO THE THREE REMAINING PUNISHMENTS YET TO BE DELIVERED) to everyone who lives on earth because the three angels will be blowing their trumpets."(WHICH WILL SIGNAL THE START OF THESE PUNISHMENTS FOR CONTINUING SIN.OF COURSE AT THIS TIME GOD'S CHOSEN WILL NO LONGER BE ON EARTH BECAUSE OF THE RAPTURE OR AS THE KING JAMES BIBLE REFERS TO IT,THE TRANSLATION,DESCRIBED IN HEBREWS 11:5 AND 1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17)

    This definitely point out that the seven seal judgments are separated in time from the seven trumpets that  ...
       FOLLOW   AFTERWARDS!
    =======================================================   

    6 The seven angels now prepared to blow their trumpets.
        THE BOOK OF JOEL 2:30-32)

    ME
       I believe this (Joel the first 32 verses)  is describing the sevenTH trumpet which is not sounded until the very end.
    even after the first six bowl judgments. 
     
    =====================================================

    8 When the second angel blew his trumpet, something like a great fiery mountain  was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood,(GOD CREATED THIS TYPE OF DESTRUCTION ONCE BEFORE AS EX. 7:20-21 DESCRIBES) 9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.10

       I think that this is describing a burning mountain as if it were being thrown into the sea.  Not much interpretation in that ?
       A volcanic eruption of great magnitude.   Such as the eruption of Krakatoa that took place in 538 AD.  This was so great of an eruption that the ash and sulfur covered the whole planet sending it into a mini darkness.

      What followed was the fallout poisoned the fresh streams of waters and lakes that everyone drank from.
      This weakened the immune systems which were further weakened after the crop failures, and famine.
       This also affected the food supplies of the wildlife.
       Black rats began migrating in search for food like never before; boarding ships that were filled with grain and thereby traveling all around the Mediterranean sea.
       Thus resulting in the Justinian plague which killed 80% of the population in the Mediterranean region.
     
      This weakens the western Roman Empire to such a degree; making it more vulnerable for the next two trumpets and what they bring with them..

       A vacuum of sorts was created allowing invasions possible that otherwise would not have been.

        The first four trumpet judgments come about from the single event of the eruption of Krakatoa.

        And then the angel is seen flying through the air saying Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants ...
    ( in regards to the next three trumpets which is yet to be sounded)

       
    At least this is how I see it having come down.

      in regards to the next three trumpets which is yet to be sounded)

        When I said this I was speaking to the fact that at that time they had not been sounded Yet.

        At present it is only the seventh trumpet and seventh bowl that is yet unfulfilled.

      I am just wondering!   There is something wrong with this scenario!

         The seven seals have previously been opened during which time there is a multitude of souls that no man can count seen standing before the throne? 
         THEN;  after this, there is a passing of 1/2 hour of time indicating a separation of time between the fulfillment of the opening of the seals. BEFORE the trumpets are handed out.

        Lets slow down a bit and think about it !
        Wouldn't the second coming have already taken place before the trumpets began?

           This is too important of an issue to simply ignore or wish it away!
