Milepost 21: The Fourth Trumpet

Primary References: Revelation 8:12

 

The fourth trumpet brings darkness for the second time in the tribulation. It is very likely that this darkness is the direct result of the first three trumpet judgments, especially, trumpets one and two. Only two thirds of the light of the sun and moon makes it through the atmosphere's pollutants. Judgments of darkness, like the fourth trumpet, speak of people's separation from God and, more directly, their spiritual darkness. John called Jesus the light shining in the world's darkness (John 1:5, 3:19). This darkness was never more illustrative of humanity's separation from God than when it befell the earth at Jesus' crucifixion (Matthew 27:45). This darkness proved that this brazen serpent of sin had been fully isolated from God the Father whose eyes are too pure to even look at sin (Habakkuk 1:13). Darkness also covered the earth at creation (Genesis 1:2), painting a picture of God's creation possibly ravaged by sin. In the future, darkness separates the wicked from God in the lake of fire, a place of utter darkness (Jude 1:13). This contrasts with the dwelling place of righteous, New Jerusalem, which is a place of perpetual light (Revelation 22:5).
