Prophecies in Revelation Coming True?
Consider the following verses from
the book The Revelation in the
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.
And the second angel sounded, and as it
were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into
the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
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.
The deeper symbolic meaning of
these verses has been explained by Maitreya
in THOTH (Revelation
of the Revelation,
Tablet 18). However, Maitreya
has always said that every word of God has more than
seven meanings, and with the recent disasters that have
plagued humanity, another possible meaning for these
verses seems to be emerging.
The first verse could possibly
relate to the volcano that erupted in Iceland and spread
ash ('hail and fire') across a large part of the earth.
Although it did not burn up trees and grass (if that
part of the verse is taken literally), it did halt
transportation all across Europe and elsewhere for a
long period of time, and had a noticeable effect on the
Another possibility is that this
first verse relates to other recent volcanic events as
well, for example the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens,
which did burn up significant amounts of trees and
An even closer correlation seems
to exist between the second and third verses and the
recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The spill
was the result of an explosion ('burning with fire') on
a drilling station on top of a pipeline almost a mile
deep ('a great mountain') in the ocean ('cast into the
Even now, with no end in sight,
the spill is listed
on Wikipedia as the third-largest spill in history,
and could easily become the largest by the time it is
contained. Also, scientists are worried that the
oil could flow into ocean currents and spread across the
Atlantic, or that storms, hurricanes, etc. could lift up
the oil and deposit it elsewhere ('the third part of the
sea'). Furthermore, the dispersants that are being
used to control the spill turn the oil a reddish color
Finally, the spill will certainly
have a great impact on the marine environment
('creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died'),
although the extent of the damage is not yet known.
We cannot say for sure that this
interpretation is correct, but it certainly is
compelling, and seems to make sense. If it is true, then
perhaps the next few verses in Revelation give us a
warning of a disaster to come:
And 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.
These verses could mean many
things. Only God knows the future, and what
exactly the disasters of the future will be is not
really important. All that matters is the
knowledge that there will be disasters and calamities if
humanity does not return to God and follow His Will.
However, these verses, perhaps, give us a hint of what
is to come.
Something to note is the
similarity between these verses and the Native American
prophecy that a part of the sun ('a great star') will
pass close to and/or hit the earth and cause the deaths
of many ('and many men died of the waters'). It also brings to mind the scientific
theory of a meteor hitting the earth and wiping out the
dinosaurs, or the new, but growing, theory that a meteor
smashed into ice and glaciers around 12,000 years ago
causing the Flood of Noah). Again, only God knows, but
the warning is ominous. As
the other predictions of God in these verses seem to
have already come true, we can surely expect that this
will as well.
All thanks to the Father for
sending His Prophet to us to Reveal so many amazing
truths. We are truly Blessed beyond bounty in this
dark time and age.
