1st Trumpet and 1st Vial
1st Trumpet: The first angel sounded the blast of a trumpet; and there followed hail and a fire mixed and mingled with a blood-like substance and they were cast and poured upon the earth: and the third part of the trees were burned down and completely burnt up; and all green herbage, grass and vegetation were completely consumed and burned down to the ground. [Revelation 8:7].
Revelation 8:7 – 1st trumpet – volcanic activity begins on the earth destroying one third of the trees and all the green grass surrounding the volcano.
01. Volcanic eruptions on the land surface, which destroy the trees and grass from the heat blast, lava flow and ash fall.
The True Christian Believers, that is, the Saved are still on the earth during this event.
1st Vial: And the first went, and poured out his broad shallow cup and vial upon the whole land of the earth; and there came to be, an ulcer and sore that draws together which was injurious, malignant, hurtful and a painful disease; upon human beings, who had the mark as a badge of servitude of the beast and upon them who prostrate themselves, to do reverence, to adore and to worship his image. [Revelation 16:2].
Revelation 16:2 – 1st plague – a shift in the magnetic field of the earth, from the earthquakes, leaving the earth temporarily without its protective shield, resulting in cosmic radiation mutilating the human flesh of those who worship the beast or antichrist.
Phase One: 6th Seal, 1st Trumpet, 1st Vial
[Revelation 6:12] And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
[Revelation 8:7] The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
[Revelation 16:2] And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men, which had the mark of the beast, and upon them, which worshiped his image.
The worldwide shifting of the tectonic plates will produce the “great earthquake.” The ruptures along the plate boundaries across land areas will create massive volcanic eruptions. These eruptions will destroy one-third of the trees (in the volcanic blast zone) and all the green grass (from the ash fall) on the earth. The volcanic ash in the upper atmosphere will change the appearance of the sun and moon (as people look upward through a dense cloud of volcanic ash; the sun will fade into a blackish shade and the moon will appear reddish or like it was blood). Finally, the amount of hydrogen chloride gas pushed up into the ozone layer by violent eruptions will so weaken the structure of the layer that ultraviolet radiation will be able to reach the earth’s surface in large quantities. This ultraviolet radiation will produce a noisome and grievous cancer sore on all the lost who have been left behind after the Rapture.
