Revelation 8:12 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.
The fourth trumpet effects the sun, moon, and stars, reducing their light by one third. Darkness is a common symbol of terror and the end of the world, the reduction of light will increase terror, and make food production less effective. Like the other trumpets, this unnatural darkness recalls the plague of darkness in Exodus 10:21-23.
We currently see technology, fuel is being converted to a source that has been there always – solar energy! The Earth being without a Solar Source? Technology ceases; the machinations that were fuel sourced will be solar sourced. We may read without full comprehension; but we pray that God’s Spirit gives us an understanding and insight into The Word that we may be fed and grow thereby.
And we pray:
Father, we ask that You give us a deep understanding of Your Word. Let us not gloss over it, but rather meditate on it day and night that our joy shall be made full, Amen. We ask that You meet all our needs, Amen. You have placed dreams within us, we ask that Your will be done with and in our lives in Jesus’ name, Amen.
