Just an everyday smoky pit near Galilee

 And the fifth angel blew his trumpet, and I saw a star fallen from heaven to earth, and he was given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit. He opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke from the shaft. (Revelation 9:1-2 ESV)

I couldn’t help posting this, as much for the humor value of it. I don’t think this story refers to the actual pit that is opened at the 5th trumpet – but the imagery invoked in the story and the neighbors frustration with it made me think of the verse above.

  1. I received my first negative e-mail from a sister in Christ ( dating back from 1998) and this is what she said today ”
