  • Daniel C Orr on Revelation 8:11
    I think and believe the Scripture calls the "Great star from Heaven" which is future to fall from heaven as Wormwood, or "bitter." This may be a comet, asteroid or meteorite or even an actual star of undetermined, as yet origins, that is hurled into earth's atmosphere, with a fierce burning hot flame of fire when introduced at break neck speeds quite literally explodes upon impact, disseminating its deadly ash and fumes over 1/3 of the earth's water sources. So bitter will the water be that many will die from its toxicity accumulated in known water sources. This is a futuristic prophecy, yet to be fulfilled in human history, during the 7 year Tribulation period. It is not an historic nuclear accident like "Chernobyl," in Russia, in recent times, some great military leader or famine, pestilence or plague, in ancient times or Mideavil times. It is what God said it is...a bitter experience for those unfortunate to partake of its calamity and yields death to many humans. The Russian nuclear accident came from the earth bound structures of a nuclear Power plant made by humans, while Wormwood comes from Heaven, a heavenly body not made by humans, as a sign of God's judgment to the human inhabitants of the earth. Other spurious conjectured interpretations are subject to discredit, as they deter from a true biblical hermeneutic interpretive course.
