And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.(Revelation 8:8-9) KJV
And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.(Revelation 16:3) KJV
The 1st trumpet/vial caused hail to fall on the land. That’s because the land, as we see it today, is distributed around the globe in a haphazard pattern. How could stellar material falling in an apparently random manner, and including a great mountain burning with fire, fall only on the sea? Consider this:

Every valley shall be exalted,
and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be
made straight, and the rough places plain: ( Isaiah 40:4 ) KJV
We have made a lot of progress on the structuring of the November blogs posts. Here is our work so far summarizing the scripture which has to incorporated into our model.
Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Daniel records a vision of seeing a stone, cut out without hands, symbolically destroying human rule of the earth and forming a mountain that fills the whole earth.
All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses. And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
The land from Geba to Rimmon, an area including Jerusalem with a diameter of about 40 miles, is going to be lifted up.
This will be a plateau at the summit of a mountain that fills the whole earth.
Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
If every mountain is to be lowered and every valley raised up, then we are talking about flattening out the entire surface of earth.
Is this poetic language or a prophecy of major tectonic activity?
