Unpacking The Bitter Water Of The Third Trumpet From The Torah
Hazon 8 (where we are)
10The 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. 11The name of the star is Wormwood.b A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.
So who shall be made to drink from the 1/3 of embittered water? Those who are unfaithful to YH among the Church, believers who departed from Christ. The proof that they had idols in their lives, proof that they accommodate idols in their hearts will be in the fact that they shall no more lead souls to Christ.
There is nothing to prosper for an in-covenant believer in the New Covenant for chasing idols. It breaks the first and greatest commandment.
In Matthew 5, they are like the salt that has lost its savor. The savorless salt will be thrown out by Y’shua, to be trample by men.
13“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.
The Torah explains the Trumpets.
The Law Of Marital Jealous (Qanna)
When the husband is so in love with his married wife when she goes running around town, he can feel it. The offering that he shall bring to the Levite priest shall be devoid of oil (richness) and frankincense (a departure of worship from YH). In the New Covenant, that Priest is Y’shua, for when the bride is unfaithful to Y’shua with displaying her lewdness with her idols.
The bitter water is wormwood, la’anah. An unfaithful` New Covenant believer will be allowed to drink from the wormwood contaminated water upon the Third Trumpet. It is a test. In the Revelation narrative, it says many will die from it. It means they will lose their eternal life. They will face eternal death.
B’Midvar 5NumbersThe Adultery Test11Then the LORD said to Moses, 12“Speak to the Israelites and tell them that if any man’s wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him 13by sleeping with another man, and it is concealed from her husband and her impurity is undetected (since there is no witness against her and she was not caught in the act), 14and if a feeling of jealousy comes over her husband and he suspects his wife who has defiled herself—or if a feeling of jealousy comes over him and he suspects her even though she has not defiled herself— 15then he is to bring his wife to the priest.He must also bring for her an offering of a tenth of an ephah of barley flour.b He is not to pour oil over it or put frankincense on it, because it is a grain offering for jealousy, an offering of memorial as a reminder of iniquity.16The priest is to bring the wife forward and have her stand before the LORD. 17Then he is to take some holy water in a clay jar and put some of the dust from the tabernacle floor into the water.18After the priest has the woman stand before the LORD, he is to let down her hair and place in her hands the grain offering of memorial, which is the grain offering for jealousy. The priest is to hold the bitter water that brings a curse. 19And he is to put the woman under oath and say to her,‘If no other man has slept with you and you have not gone astray and become defiled while under your husband’s authority, may you be immune to this bitter water that brings a curse. 20But if you have gone astray while under your husband’s authority and have defiled yourself and lain carnally with a man other than your husband’— 21and the priest shall have the woman swear under the oath of the curse—‘then may the LORD make you an attested curse among your people by making your thigh shrivel and your belly swell. 22May this water that brings a curse enter your stomach and cause your belly to swell and your thigh to shrivel.’Then the woman is to say, ‘Amen, Amen.’23And the priest shall write these curses on a scroll and wash them off into the bitter water. 24He is to have the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and it will enter her and cause her bitter suffering. 25The priest shall take from her hand the grain offering for jealousy, wave it before the LORD, and bring it to the altar. 26The priest is then to take a handful of the grain offering as a memorial portion and burn it on the altar; after that he is to have the woman drink the water.27When he has made her drink the water, if she has defiled herself and been unfaithful to her husband, then the water that brings a curse will enter her and cause bitter suffering; her belly will swell, her thigh will shrivel, and she will become accursed among her people. 28But if the woman has not defiled herself and is clean, she will be unaffected and able to conceive children.29This is the law of jealousy when a wife goes astray and defiles herself while under her husband’s authority, 30or when a feeling of jealousy comes over a husband and he suspects his wife. He is to have the woman stand before the LORD, and the priest is to apply to her this entire law. 31The husband will be free from guilt, but the woman shall bear her iniquity.”
After the Christian who dapples in idols had the la’anah water, he or she will never lead another soul to Christ. This is analogous of the unfaithful wife in Numbers 5 where she will not bear child no longer. Those in the Church who have been faithful to Y’shua all along will pass this test. They shall go on to lead more souls to Christ in the remaining blasts of the trumpets in Revelation.
And when Y’shua our Kinsman comes, to the faithful Church He will gather to His Father’s house.
The unfaithful barren Church bits will hear Him say, Depart from Me!
