101 Bible Secrets
Bible Secret Number 49 

A Major Contradiction?

There is a prophecy in the Book of Revelation 8:7 which states that "all green grass is to be burnt up," but Revelation 9:4 said later that the locusts could not harm "the grass of the earth." How could there be grass available when it was supposedly consumed?
 

Though "all green grass was burnt up," it would have taken only a month or so for new grass (From the seed embedded in the ground) to sprout. The "grass of the earth" in Revelation 9:4 could have been new foliage. There is no contradiction of the Bible on this matter.
