Revelation 8:10-11 10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 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.

What do you think this will be?What does Wormwood mean?I wonder if there is really a star named "wormwood" that scientists are aware of now or will it be discovered and named during the tribulation?

Wormwood means bitter its a root used as medicine but is extremely bitter. Wormwood will most likeliy be a comet or astriod but will be a very larg one.

Many years ago before I was a believer (but still a little superstitious with regards to the Bible, like so many false, semi-believing and lapsed Christians are), I heard it said that the Ukrainian word for Wormwood was Chernobyl, so I thought that it may have been a reference to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. This was without reading it or taking it in context with other verses, of course.

Now of course, I realise that none of that makes any sense, so I've stayed away from the 'wormwood' question. I just don't know what it means. I expect it will come clearer nearer to the time.

Maybe a meteor that the news is always talking about ? I guess time will tell.

Maybe a meteor will crash into chernobyl and give the wormwood name to it from that? One can speculate quite a bit with revelation.

Hmmm...the Bible says it is supposed to fall into 1/3 of our rivers and make them bitter so I can speculate not.
