The "Last Day" - Event 2. By Fabian Massa

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

The last day, also called Four ways to end the world, is a BBC documentary in which four scenarios of global destruction or "end of the world [1]."

In the previous post in this series [2] try megatsunami prophecy. In this post we will see the event 2.

1. An Asteroid impact on Earth

In the Bible there are two prophecies relating to stars that impact the Earth:

          I. 10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs. 11 The star is Wormwood. [B] And the third part of the waters turned bitter, and because of those waters many people died. Revelation 8.10. NIV

Before you jump right into the explanation of the verse, we must take a brief look at the apocalyptic genre. Apocalyptic writings came in response of the people (Jewish and Christian OT in the NT) to an extermination oppression to which they could not fight. The comfort of these villages is expected that God is one who does justice to his enemies. It follows the mysterious style why apocalyptic texts and using symbolic figures to refer to things: This is a persecuted people who can not write clearly, for that would autodelatarse and exposing torture and death.

There are basically two differences between apocalyptic and prophetic texts that we must consider:

a. Apocalyptic writings were written to be read.

b. The apocalyptic prophecies, speaking of God's Justice on the destroyers of His people, leave no change or hope. The end of the wicked is sealed and there is nothing they can do to avoid catastrophe.

c. The prophetic writings were proclaimed by the prophets to the people and then written to not lose.

d. The prophetic writings always leave room for hope of salvation if the wicked repent and do things properly.

According to Antonio Piñero [3] "the author is convinced that he is writing what" happen soon "(1.1) within their own generation. But what happened is that the prophecy was not fulfilled. Then, the solution was interpreted symbolically ecclesiastical solution as said or written to the end of the world ... in a time that is not specified. Thus it is valid forever, but that was not the intention of the author. It was a letter of comfort to the Christians of his generation. "

The coming of the Lord shall be for punishment of the wicked, those who have supported the Great Babylon, that in the historical context of the book is the Roman Empire and in the symbolic context of the Antichrist is the government that is able to impose the New World Order to mid end of the 70th Week [4].

Wormwood is a plant that exudes bitterness. The Jews believed that their juice dissolved in water was poisonous. The image is very straightforward, many of the enemies of the people of God and therefore God Himself would die from drinking these waters. As an example, read following:

15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets: Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem has gone forth into all the earth. Jeremiah 23:15 KJV 60.

II. 9 He played the fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw that he had fallen from heaven to earth a star, which was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2 He opened it, and well up a puff of smoke, like a great furnace, and the smoke darkened the sun and air. 3 Out of the smoke locusts came down upon the earth, and they were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who do not take the front the seal of God. 5 They were not given permission to kill them but only to torture them for five months. His torment is like that of the sting of a scorpion. 6 During those days people will seek death but will not find it; desire to die, but death will flee from them. Revelation 9.1 - 6, NIV.

According to commentators and scholars, the text follows that here the word star refers to a spiritual being and not an object. So given keys as Abyss, a bottomless pit, where reign the fallen angels were locked [5]. This is a frightening sight, the demons that were locked are released to torture the enemies of God.

God has anticipated all the things that have to happen, so we all know that He is God. All prophecies will be fulfilled.

10 I make known the end from the beginning;
    from ancient times, what is to come.
I say: My purpose will stand,
    and I will do what I want.
NIV Isaiah 46.10.

Likewise also true his promise to give us eternal life. Week 70 is about to begin, one Christ Salva. Are we ready?
