After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:
“Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”
Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.
The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
Can this part of revelation relate to climate change?
At first, the fire is stopped while the holy ones are sealed. Then the calamity relating to heat and burning up resumes in the next chapter.
It reminds of how in 2 Peter how the world will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.- Climate change?
1.Relating to the plagues of Egypt one author described how there seemed to be a cause and effect, the blood brought the flies brought the frogs that caused something else and so on, will climate warming also create a cause and effect of disastrous events as in this part of revelation.
2. Only recently a news report showed that if Governments of the world reduced emissions one and half percent for 10 years the world might just get by.
3. These chapters of revelations refers to plagues on mankind and this seems to take place even before Armageddon.
4. The symbolism of the scorpion: I read a comment that a scorpion is a enemy to all mankind. Could global warming cause a plague of scorpions? and so on.
5. An earth where the wind becomes stilled would cause what? Read it for yourself.
