Chernobyl (“Wormwood“), may be in a Bible description of The End Times. A giant meteor hits Chernobyl and poisons 1/3 of the Earth’s freshwater, killing many.
Even more amazing, The Apostle John described the meteor strike as a mountain dropping from the sky. Keep in mind that no one had ever seen such a big meteorite strike and survived, or if they survived, they were blind, and if not, they had no ability to record and communicate the event.
There wasn’t even a Roman or Greek word for volcano until the destruction of Vesuvius, 25-ish years later. So, John was describing something unknown in his culture.
Revelation 8:10–11 (ESV): 10 The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.
So, monitor Chernobyl. If it’s catastrophically destroyed, you know you are smack dab inside The Great Tribulation.
