“8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” -Revelation 16:8-9
The fourth plague that happened was HEATWAVE which took place in France in May 2003. As a result, many people died because of extreme heat from the sun reaching 40 to 50 degrees Celsius. Several other countries like India, the United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Germany, the United States of America, Canada, and some countries in Europe were also affected. In REVELATION 16:8-9 we read: “THEN THE FOURTH ANGEL POURED OUT HIS BOWL ON THE SUN, AND IT WAS ALLOWED TO BURN PEOPLE WITH ITS FIERY HEAT. THEY WERE BURNED BY THE FIERCE HEAT, AND THEY CURSED THE NAME OF GOD, WHO HAS AUTHORITY OVER THESE PLAGUES. BUT THEY WOULD NOT TURN FROM THEIR SINS AND PRAISE HIS GREATNESS.”

2003 European heat wave
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 2003 European heat wave was the hottest summer on record in Europe since at least 1540. France was hit especially hard. The heat wave led to health crises in several countries and combined with drought to create a crop shortfall in parts of Southern Europe. Peer reviewed analysis places the European death toll at 70,000.
