Revelation 8:13 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!

I was asked about the Greek rendering of the word “eagle” in this verse. The oldest manuscripts still use the word eagle. It is not an angel, but so far as I can see it is a literal eagle.
His announcement is one of change. He announces the first four plagues were against nature, the next three, which change, because the next three trumpets are directed against man. Those against nature are called warnings; those against man are called woes.

    That’s interesting. I read in a NLT and KJV parallel and had not noticed that difference…probably bc I’m a little dyslexic.

    But it made me think of when all the birds were falling dead out of the sky 8 or 9 years ago.
    I asked God about those happenings and felt he told me it was a warning.
    He took me to creation in Genesis where he made man and blessed him and made birds and fish and blessed them. He didn’t bless anything of the rest of creation in that account. So the birds and fish dying for no apparent reason was a warning to man of what happens when Gods blessing is removed.
