And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.
The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.
The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.
And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
“And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;
And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.
Revelation 16:12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.
Revelation 16:18 And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. 19 Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. 20 Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent (100lbs). Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.

Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano is spewing gas, smoke and ash
For more than a week, the 17,797-foot mountain just southeast of Mexico City and known affectionately as “El Popo,” has been increasingly explosive, spewing great plumes of gas, ash and incandescent rock into the air. The activity led the Mexican government to raise the warning level and on Monday, local, state and federal officials held drills for the possibility of evacuations. The situation in Mexico comes as active volcanoes also prompted warnings in Italy and the Democratic Republic of Congo in recent days
Active volcanoes prompted ash warnings and set nerves on edge in Italy, Mexico and the Democratic Republic of Congo over the weekend.
Mount Etna showered ash over Catania in eastern Sicily Sunday and forced the temporary suspension of airport operations. Ash also briefly closed Mexico City’s largest airport and the eruption of Volcano Popocatépetl prompted officials to urge people to avoid traveling near it.
The Nyamulagira volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo also continued ongoing activity and lava flow.
The volcanoes are among nearly 50 (5) volcanoes active around the world
Volcano Popocatépetl prompts warnings in Mexico City
Volcanic ash from Popocatépetl triggered the temporary closure of Mexico City’s Benito Juárez International Airport on Saturday, according to the U.S. Embassy. Flight delays related to the presence of ash also were reported Monday.
CNN reported that millions were warned to prepare for possible evacuation Popocatépetl, as authorities closed schools in dozens of municipalities.
People were urged not to travel within a 7.5 mile radius of the volcano and to avoid the crater, “due to the danger of falling ballistic fragments,” according to Mexico’s National Center for Communication and Civil Protection Operations.
The volcano has experienced explosions, tremors and exhalations of vapor, gas and ashes for weeks, according to monitoring reports from the national center and the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
Ash fell across more than a dozen municipalities over the weekend.
Volcano Popocatepetl lies near Puebla, about 45 miles southwest of Mexico City.
CNN reported 25 million people live within a 60-mile radius of the volcano.
Mount Etna spews ash
Stepped up tremor activity had been noted at Mount Etna for several days, reported Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology.
No injuries were reported and cloud cover was impeding views of the eruption on Sunday, the agency said.
People in the towns of Adrano and Biancavilla reported hearing loud booms from the volcano on Sunday
Activity frequently originates from multiple cones in the craters at Etna’s summit, according to the Smithsonian Institution’s Global Volcanism Program and the US Geological Survey.
Lava flows were reported in January, and an explosion on May 14 produced an ash admission, the group stated.
Activity at Mount Etna has been observed and recorded for more than 2,500 years, making it one of the oldest continuously monitored volcanoes.
What happened at the Nyamulagira volcano?
Lava flowed on Saturday and Sunday from an ongoing eruption inside the Nyamulagira volcano, reported Charles Balagizi, a geochemist and geohazards researcher at the Goma Volcano Observatory in a Twitter post. The volcano is north of Goma, on the eastern side of the Democratic Republic of Congo near the border with Rwanda.
Nyamulagira is Africa’s most active volcano.
It was releasing large quantities of sulphur dioxide over the weekend, Balagizi said.
He encouraged residents in the region to wash all vegetables before cooking.
An eruption began in the summit crater on March 14 and active flows were seen on May 7 and May 12, according to the Smithsonian’s Global Volcanism Program.
The volcano has been active since April 2018.
How many volcanoes are active?
As of April 14, 49 volcanoes around the world were in continuing eruption status, according to the Smithsonian’s Global Volcanism Program. Last week, 24 were in some stage of active eruption, according to the program’s latest weekly report.
But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
