The Third Woe


“And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!” - Revelation 8:13 Because people are so inundated with their present lives and concerned with maintaining a successful marriage, raising kids or just overall making ends meet, most do not really engage in thinking about what lies ahead. What really happens to us when we leave the land of living? Some will assert that we just poof out of existence into nothingness. But the bible tells us differently. The bible lets us know that when we die there will be a judgment of each individual’s life and then what’s next is eternity. Eternity in the presence of God or eternity outside of the presence of God. Jesus referred to eternity outside of God’s kingdom in multiple ways but one way is the ‘outer darkness’. The time is coming when the book of Revelation will begin to be fulfilled and there are things coming to this earth that should make a normal thinking person very terrified. We should be seriously concerned about what’s coming. In the book of Revelation, an angel exclaimed three woes – or terrible, horrific things - would be upon those living on the earth at the end of the age. Two woes are clearly described – but where, what or who is The Third Woe?
