Trumpet 4:  Sun, moon and stars darkened

Rev 8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

In ancient days it was often thought the sun and other celestial bodies were gods and are worshipped as such. A modern remain of such worship is astrology. The ancient used similar language as the verse when speaking about solar and lunar eclipses.

Less sunlight, for extended duration, will have its impact on earth's vegetation. Combined with the previous trumpets that also had a huge impact on nature the planets ability to support life must have severely decreased by now. Large scale famine and diseases are very realistic to expect at this point.

In the Hebrew mind the sun is symbol of God. Gives warmth, light and gives life (plant growth). Note the word 'symbol'. This isn't about seeing the sun as an actual God. The moon is a symbol for mankind that can only reflect God's glory but has none of its own. In Rev 7:1, just after the 6th seal, we saw the angels restraining God's glory; this trumpet seems to describe a similar thing. God's blessings are further withheld. The following verses summarize quite well what happened so far.

Isa 13:6-13 Howl you; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travails: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

A third of the sun

Malachi 4:2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings....

It's clear that that sun is symbolic because a literal sun is dead object that is neither good nor evil. Jesus had healing in His wings


Micah 2:13. The breaker is come up before them: they have broken up, and have passed through the gate, and are gone out by it: and their king shall pass before them, and the LORD on the head of them

Sheep were often kept behind stone wall. In the morning the breaker (shepherd) removed some stones so the sheep can storm/break out into the field.


Malachi 4:2 .... And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

The animals are released by the shepherd/king. It can be debated what the sun exactly represents. The Son, the Father, blessings of Father/Son etc., but it’s clear the sun is positive and linked to holiness. I think it represents God's Word/Teachings/Gospel in this context. Satan keep increasingly suppressing the truth by injecting false doctrine so that the sun shines 1/3 less. Less sun is more darkness. More darkness is more deception. The sun represents Jesus.


2Thessalonians 2:9-12 “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing.

They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”


A third of the moon

The moon which is also called the lesser light reflects the glory of the sun. The reflected glory is the law. So the law will be reduced. Less law is more rebellion. And very likely holy feasts will be corrupted of totally cancelled.


The moon reflects the light of the sun. With the sun partly blocked out the moon can no longer fully ‘radiate the law’.

Daniel 7:25 "He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time."

Note: No saints are raptured yet.



Third of the stars turns dark

Angels are servant of the Light/God. When they follow satan they turn dark/to darkness. Simply put a third of the angels will team up with satan.

A third of the day and the night are without light

This is basically a summary of the above. Less sunlight during the day and less moonlight during the night. Symbolically speaking of course.

John 9:4-5 “As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”


1) “The day” means the time when those “of the light” can work (evangelize).

2) “The night” means the time when those “of the light" will NOT be able to work.

3) “Of the light” refers to those who have the Holy Spirit within them.

4) “Of the darkness” refers to those who follow or have a demonic spirit.



The three woes

The woe, woe, woe is the sound of the eagle telling us the 3 trumpet of the evening service will follow soon.

Rev 8:13 And I saw, and I heard an eagle, flying in mid heaven, saying with a great voice, Woe, woe, woe, for them that dwell on the earth, by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, who are yet to sound.


Deuteronomy 28:49-50 “The LORD will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young.”

The eagle's attack symbolizes a nation attacking Israel. Let's join the evening service. The 3.5 reign of satan

This conclude the Temple’s morning service. Even greater horror follows during the three woes of the evening service.

Matthew 24:21-22 “For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again. If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened."
