The Second Trumpet: God begins to repay the Earth with blood

The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8-9 NIV)

Here is another passage that critics of God will use to show how angry and blood thirsty God is. However, as human beings we are all guilty of hatred which is the seed of murder (see Matthew 5:21-22). God responded to our violent ways with love, spilling His own blood in order to save us. But most of us have rejected God’s gift, and instead been involved in spilling more and more innocent blood. A loving God cannot and will not tolerate so much violence against the innocent. He will repay the Earth with blood.

Repent before it is too late.
