WORMWOOD – UNDDERSTANDING WORMWOOD

1 – THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR A STAR WHICH WILL FALL ON EARTH (Rev 8:11)

What is the meaning of this prophecy give by YAHUSHA through the sight of John?

I am using the HalleluYah Scripture for the purpose of studying and understanding the meaning of this prophecy. Please search through the Scripture with me.

Debarim (Deuteronomy) 29:16-18
“For you know how we dwelt in the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt) and how we passed through the nations which you passed through, and you saw their abominations and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were with them, lest there should be among you a man or woman or clan or tribe, WHOSE HEARTS TURNS AWAY TODAY FROM YAHUAH our Elohim (God), TO GO and SERVE THE MIGHTY ONES OF THESE NATIONS, lest there should be among you a root bearing bitterness or wormwood.”

Could it be that the practises (abominations) of these nations is root(-s) of bitterness or wormwood?
Mishley (Proverb) 5:3-6

“For the lips (voices/teachings) of a strange woman (Church: Rev 12 and Rev 17) drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil; But in the end SHE IS BITTER AS WORMWOOD, Sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death, He steps lay hold of the grave. She does not consider the path of hai; He ways are unstable – you do not know it.”

He describe a church [must be a world church] with smooth bitter “teachings which will cut deep in you flesh and mind [it will become part of your being]”. Just as we ask YAHUAH to wrote His Scripture deep inside the wall of our mind (to remember it), so does this woman’s words goes deep inside our minds to change as and turning as “away from YAHUAH our Elohim (God), to go and serve baal/satan/lucifer/moloch/saturn [“all the same mighty one”] the idols (all idols represent the devil) of the woman.
These quotes was found, which was said to smoothen the minds of those active in this church, they are:

1) “Strong fennel and wormwood hit the back of my tongue along with a dryness from the barrel and hints of citrus from the chamomile.”
2) “But voters are more likely to go for Gabriel Ebert, who plays Mr. Wormwood in Matilda the Musical with bitter fun.”
3) “Like, Mrs. Wormwood very much wants to be the center of attention.”
4) “I have summoned you here to witness it, because I know it will be gall and wormwood to you!”
5) “Give it brimstone and treacle and a cupful of wormwood and camomile.”
6) “This was wormwood and gall to the parent, but he did not spare himself.”
7) “He had to live on her money, which galled him, and to be assisted by the Dean’s money, which was wormwood to him.”
8) “It may easily be conceived that all this was gall and wormwood to the Baroness Banmann.”

2 – THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR A STAR WHICH WILL FALL ON EARTH (Rev 8:11)

To smoothen YAHUAH warning, the agents of the church spread the following “antidote”:

Wormwood Benefits
Chances are, many readers know that wormwood is the key ingredient in the famous European beverage absinthe. Almost as many know little else about this fascinating and beneficial herb. Wormwood belongs to the genus Artemisia, named for the goddess Artemis. The members of this genus belong to the family Compositae, along with daisies, tarragon, and a whole host of other plants we find in the field, the garden, and the kitchen. All species of Artemisia possess the characteristic bitterness, often effective for animals that feed on the wild varieties as a means of avoiding predation. But what can it do for humans, beyond the fact that one type, Artemisia absinthe,(Artemisia absinthium) is used to produce an intoxicant?

Medicinal Uses of Wormwood
Sources from the Ancient World and the Middle Ages indicate that many varieties were useful for insecticides, to be strewn among floor rushes or dried and packed among furs and textiles to prevent moth and flea infestations. It also places prominently in love potions and philters of the Middle Ages. While it may truly be useful for repelling insects, more fascinating is the place it rightfully holds in modern pharmacopeias.

Digestive aid
The bitter components and acids render wormwood an excellent remedy for digestive issues. This is primarily because a bitter flavor on the tongue actually causes the gallbladder to produce and release bile. Contrary to popular belief, it is often too little acid production that leads to most indigestion, not an excess of it. It is also noted as being useful in alleviating fever, expelling parasitic worms like roundworm from the digestive tract, and for its tonic effects. It may also be applied topically to reduce inflammation of insect bites and promote healing. Wormwood is also noted to be useful in treating jaundice, a sign of liver dysfunction and to increase sexual desire.

Habitat – Appearance of Wormwood
Species in this genus grow to approximately two feet in height. Their leaves have an almost feathery appearance and both the stem and upper surface of the leaves are covered with small, whitish hairs. Artemisia species can be found in much of the northern and western parts of Europe, where they grow wild in waste spaces. It is thought that several of these species were once commonly cultivated for their medicinal and insect repelling properties. Several may also be found throughout the North American continent as naturalized species, and in the steppes of Northern Asia. Many varieties of wormwood favor shady areas and can often be found as scrub vegetation in the understory level of more developed tracts vegetation. However, several species favor more arid and open conditions than those typically found in woodland habitats.

Active Ingredients in Wormwood
Wormwood possesses a volatile oil, which, when the plant essence is distilled, exhibits approximately .5%-1% of the resultant liquid. It is often blue or green in color and gives off a strong, bitter smell. The oil itself is a cocktail of thujone (absinthe or tenaceton), thujanol alcohol (both free and combined with acetic iso valerianic, succinic, and malic acids), cadinene, phellandrene, and pinene. The herb also contains quantities of tannin, resin, nitrate of potash, other salts, the bitter glucoside absinthe, and absinthic acid. Often, the entire herb—root, stem and leaves, and flowers—is used in various preparations.

Properly collected and dried leaves and flowers of wormwood, collected on a warm, sunny day after blooming has begun in July and dried in partial sun not cooler than 70 degrees Fahrenheit, may be steeped as a tea in the following proportions: one ounce of dried leaves steeped for 10-12 minutes in one pint of boiling water. The essential oils are also useful for dispelling intestinal worms. Caution should be taken with wormwood however, as taking too much can cause diarrhea because it stimulates swift emptying of the intestines as a part of its tonic effects.

3 – THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR A STAR WHICH WILL FALL ON EARTH (Rev 8:11)
Wormwood has the general “benefit” (curse) of:

“In terms of general benefits of the herb Wormwood, it has been proven to help with many things, however it is mainly used in the holistic aspect of medicinal use. It is most commonly consumed either as a hot tea or a tincture to be taken before meals and is favorably used for: Stimulating the digestive tract and gallbladder function effective trigger of producing excessive amounts of bile which aids in the function of the gallbladder typically mixed with peppermint and/or caraway (in a tea) to aid in the calming of heartburn and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)Expelling of intestinal worms stimulate feminine menstruation. Stimulates cerebral hemispheres and directly stimulates the cortex cerebri which may aid in nervous diseases like neurasthenia common muscle relaxant may help to quicken the process of childbirth and help with the expulsion of the afterbirth (it is not recommended however due to the toxicity of the herb)Known to treat anxieties by being used a mild sedative stimulates poor circulation and aids in the relief of painful rheumatic joints by using the leaves a compress stimulates/remedies a poor appetite. Wormwood has become a highly popularized herb that is commonly used in the prominent and ever growing field of holistic medicine. Like mainly organic herbs, Wormwood has been known to help in the overall general function and cleanliness of many internal organs.”
If it works? I do no know, but what i do know is the Scripture mentioned it and its effects is not good in description. Let look at more Scripture verses regarding “wormwood”.

YirmeYahu (Jeremia) 9:13-15 reads “And YAHUAH says, Because they have forsaken My Torah which I put before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, but they have walked according to the stubbornness of their own heart and after the Ba’als, which their fathers had taught them. Therefore thus said YAHUAH of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’el, See, I am making this people eat wormwood, and I shall make them drink poisoned water.”

We can see [and easily understand] that YAHUAH Commandments NEED TO be kept. ALL of then! Israel is been charged that they worship ba’als. They worship the sun gode, the golden calf, osiris, horus and seth (3 gods of Egypt). People we need to know who these idols is, so that you NOT HAVE THEM IN YOU HOMES! Wormwood is a herb that relaxes you muscles, your mind; the way you think [your faith could be affected]! It’s almost “like flunitrazepam (Rohypnol); gamma hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), and ketamine” (the date rape drug). Their affect you very quickly and cause victims to become weak and confused, toxicity, Convulsions, impotence, muscular weakness, nausea, vomiting, and possibly death. Wormwood medical name is “Artemisia Absinthium”.

WE HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND THAT WE HAVE TO DO WITH THE CONDITION OF THE SPIRITUAL MEN AND WOMEN! WORMWOOD AFFECT PEOPLE TO CHANGE THEIR FAITH WITHOUT THEY EVEN KNOWING IT!

4 – THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR A STAR WHICH WILL FALL ON EARTH (Rev 8:11)
“Is it really a star, or the star symbolize something else?”

We (i) have come to the understanding that the Commandments need to be kept. YAHUAH never change, what was said in the Old Testament also apply in the New Testament! The fact is we NEED NOT worship other gods (idols), we MUST not make ANY craven image of anything and we MUST NOT bow down and worship them. For any other elohim is a symbol of lucifer! It is a symbol of the devil (Ba’al).

YirmeYahu (Jeremia) 23:10-15 reads “For the land is filled with adulterers. . .And their course is evil, and their might is not right. For both nabi (prophet) and kohein (priest) have become defiled. Even in My house I have found their evil. . .Therefore their ways is to them like slippery ways in the dark. They are driven on and they shall fall in them. For I (YAHUAH) bring evil on them. . .they prophesied by ba’al and led My people Yisra’el astray. And among the nebi’im (prophets) of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) I have seen a horrible matter: committing adultery and walking in falsehood. And they strengthen the hands of evil ones, so that no one turns back from his evil. All of them are like Sedom to Me, and her inhabitants like Amorah. Therefore thus said YAHAUH of hosts concerning the nebi’im, See, I am making them eat wormwood, and shall make them drink poisoned water. For defilement has gone out into all the land. . .”

AGAIN we see that Israel do the deeds a wicked nation. They worship ba’al and act accordingly. YAHUAH says He “shall make them (Israel) drink poisoned water”?
Water in Scripture is the HOLY SPIRIT (John 7:37; 4:14; Rev 22;17) while poison must been the opposite of holy. YAHUAH in fact shall let them drink the evil spirit.

5 – THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR A STAR WHICH WILL FALL ON EARTH (Rev 8:11)

Amos 5:7 “. . .you. .are turning right-ruling into wormwood. . .”

What is right-ruling? It is the judgement or ruling for justice in a dispute or matter between two parties – H4941

Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon dictionary define right-ruling as:
1. (properly) a verdict (favorable or unfavorable) pronounced judicially.
2. (especially) a sentence or formal decree (human or (participant’s) divine law, individual or collective), including the act, the place, the suit, the crime, and the penalty.
3. (abstractly) justice, including a participant’s right or privilege (statutory or customary), or even a style. [from H8199]

KJV: + adversary, ceremony, charge, X crime, custom, desert, determination, discretion, disposing, due, fashion, form, to be judged, judgment, just(-ice, -ly), (manner of) law(-ful), manner, measure, (due) order, ordinance, right, sentence, uses, X worthy, + wrong.

As we already witnessed, wormwood cause that you act “as if you are trapped in a dream” with the deference that you remember everything you have done. Wormwood causes the people to turn right-ruling into unrighteousness!

[Please go to https://evidenceforthename.wordpress.com/right-ruling-what-is-it/ for a complete and Scriptural understanding regarding “right-ruling” in Scripture]

Amos 6:12 “. .you have turn right-ruling into poison, and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood”

Hosheia (Hosea) 10:4 “They have spoken words,swearing falsely in making a covenant. Therefore judgment shall spring up like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.”

Romiyim (Romans) 1:31 “without discernment, Covenant breaking, unloving, unforgiving, ruthless”

2 Tomtiyos (Timothy) 3:3 “unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of good”

Ma’aseih (Acts) 8:23 “For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by unrighteousness.”

Ibrim (Hebrews) 12:15 “See to it that no one falls short of the favour of Elohim, that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, by which many become defiled, lest there be anyone who whores, or profane one. . .who for a single meal sold his birthright.”

6 – THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR A STAR WHICH WILL FALL ON EARTH 

Revelation 8:10-11 “And the third messenger sounded and a great star fell from the shamayim (heaven), burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water, and the name of the star is called Wormwood. And a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men dead from the waters, because they were made bitter.”

The King James Version of Scripture reads, “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”

The Revised Standard Version of Scripture reads “The 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 fountains of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the water became wormwood, and many men died of the water, because it was made bitter.”

Let look to these 2 verse closely:
a) “burning as it were a lamp”
b) “the rivers”
c) “the fountains of waters”
d) “men died”
e) “they were made bitter”

The best way to understand Scripture is to let Scripture explain. Let see what does Scripture says regarding the strong points:

b) “the rivers” —

– Water symbolized people, and crowds, and nations, and tongues (Rev 17:15). 

– Water also symbolized also the “holy Spirit” (John 7:39; 4:14; Rev 22:14), if the water dirty it could mean that the spirit is not holy but evil.

– [the Holy Spirit is related with the Gospel (John 14:17,26; 15:26,7-11,13)

– A river is stream which flows out of a “pool”, carrying the water to somewhere.

c) “the fountain of water” —

– Proverbs 18:4 The words of a man’s mouth are deep waters; The fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook.

– Zechariah 13:1 “In that day a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for impurity.

– Jeremiah 9:1 Oh that my head were waters And my eyes a fountain of tears, That I might weep day and night For the slain of the daughter of my people!

– Proverbs 5:15-18 Drink water from your own cistern And fresh water from your own well. Should your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets? Let them be yours alone And not for strangers with you.

– Psalm 36:9 For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

– Proverbs 5:16 Should your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets?

(See also: Psalm 87:7; Proverbs 10:11; Proverbs 13:14; Proverbs 16:22; Joel 3:18; Jeremiah 2:13; Jeremiah 6:7; Proverbs 25:26; John 3:33; Romans 15:13; Revelation 7:17)

d) “men died” —

To understand this prophecy or warning, we need to REMEMBER that death come upon these men because the have drink of these poisonous water. (Also read Rev 14:13; Prov 14:32; Ecc 8:8; Prov 5:23; Job 7:9; Rom 6:23; Ezek 3:19; Num 16:32).

e) “they were made bitter” —

Oxford Dictionary explain “bitter” as:
1) having a harsh pungent taste as of quinine or of coffee that is too strong
2) caused by or showing mental pain or resentment (bitter memories; bitter rejoinder)
3) painful or difficult to accept (bitter disappointment)
4) etc.

After we understand point b) to e) lets look at point a): “burning as it were a torch/lamp”: What is the purpose of a torch or lamp? It give light [upon a subject]. YAHUSHA is the true light (lamp/torch) of the world (John 1:8-9). But this message which the star (messenger) brings, burning, but as if it were a lamp/torch, it isn’t the lamp/torch. The messengers name is Wormwood, the message makes you bitter – it change your character. We sow that Israel ate the the Wormwood plant and they drank the Wormwood water, because the were adulterers who whore after Baals. They transgress the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Command. They had other gods before YAHUAH; they make for themselves images of these gods; the worshipped them by bowing down before them; and they worship Baal on YAHUAH’S day of worship (Exo 32:5).
