WORMWOOD....

HEAR, O ISRAEL !
from the 7 Trumpet Judgments
of the Angels sent to earth
in Revelation chapter 8


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.

10 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;

11 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.

No, the meteorite that terrorized and injured people in Chelyabinsk, Russia on 2-15-13 was NOT The Wormwood in Revelation 8. 

But YES, 
it was a warning sent 
unto the souls and spirits of men:

TODAY
is the Day of Salvation; 
harden not your hearts 
as in the day of provocation. 

While all eyes were upon the fly-by meteor that was roughly 3 x as large as the Chelyabinsk meteorite, The  LORD sent HIS+ sign to all... to change the focus of our worship: 

REPENT
for the Kingdom of Heaven
 is at hand...

And we ALL KNOW
what will happen 
when The JUDGE+ 
of the whole earth
shall appear.

Remember: There is NO HIDING PLACE outside of The LORD, The JUDGE+ of the whole earth.

How will HE+ judge ? 

HE+ told us how: 

He that rejecteth ME+, 
and receiveth not My+ Words, 
hath one that judgeth him:  
The WORD 
that I+ have spoken, 
the same 
shall judge him 
in the last day.

This WORMWOOD that falls from the Heavens is aptly named. On earth, it is a bitter herb spoken of throughout the Scriptures and is usually coupled with GALL.  Wormwood repels parasites in the human body, among other things.  

Even more interesting is the botanical name of that herb: artemisia absinthium.  

Artemis was a Greek "goddess", equivalent to the Roman's Diana... not a wholesome character, to say the least.   

The absinthium is cited back to the Pre-Greek Pelasgian to mean : UN-enjoyable... perhaps due to the bitter taste of the herb when used medicinally. [ Information from Wikipedia: artemisia absinthium .] 

A Roman philosopher and poet, Lucretius, ( from the same article ) , spoke of tricking children to drink the bitter herb by rimming the cup with honey... which is similar to the Proverbs 7 chapter about the harlot who sweetens her bed to trap the man void of understanding.

In this grossly immoral society which extends around the globe, the society  we call "civilization" ... a civilization where school children are subjected to behavior that is even IN-APPROPRIATE for adults, in its wickedness ... we can see the appropriateness of the WORMWOOD judgment.

And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.

And they that be wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness, as the stars forever. 
Daniel 12:2, 3
