I was going through my mailbox, doing some house cleaning and deleting old emails. During this process, I came across a few news articles that I had neglected to comment on. A few of them were interesting enough to bring up, even if they were a bit old.
In Revelation 8:7, it says:
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.
After the Seventh Seal is opened, the first angel will sound his trumpet, and a world-wide heat spike will occur. It will be so hot that all the grass in the world will wither and die. When I read this, I always think about people’s lawns or the grass covering the fields of the public parks down the streets. However, having all the grass in the world burn up in massive heat spike has much wider implications.
Scientific research, published about a year ago, argues that by 2070, global warming could increase enough to threaten many types of grasses — corn, rice, wheat, maize, rye, barley and sorghum are all edible grasses. So, a broader implication of Revelation 8:7 is that all the world’s grain production will be destroyed when the first trumpet is sounded.
There is no need to rush out and stock up on barrels of organic wheat — at least not yet. The Sixth Seal still needs to be opened, though if a supervolcano does erupt in the western portion of America, most of the US grain crop will be destroyed with it (and vast portions of US farmland will be rendered useless by the massive ash accumulation), so on second thought, perhaps having some food stores hidden away might not be such a bad idea.
On a side note, please say a prayer for the people in Texas, as the massive flooding there is causing great hardship.
