ANTICHRIST SHALL ARISE OUT OF GREATER SYRIA
ANTICHRIST WILL RISE OUT FROM THE CALIPHATE
GOD USED HYPERBOLES MANY TIMES IN PROPHECY
HYPERBOLES ARE USED THROUGHOUT GOD’S WORD
THAT WOULD INCLUDE INTERPRETING PROPHECIES!
THE ISLAMIC CALIPHATE SHALL BE SMALLER IN SIZE
I’VE BEEN TEACHING THIS FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS
I AM NOW CONVINCED IT SHALL EVENTUALLY OCCUR
IT IS TIME TO CONSIDER THE PROPHECY HYPERBOLE!
BY WATCHING OLD WORLD PROPHECY FULFILLMENT!!

THE HYPERBOLE IS NOT A LIE BECAUSE A HEARER OR A READER IS ACQUAINTED WITH THE USE OF HYPERBOLE AS AN EXAGGERATED STATEMENT!

“HYPERBOLE” COMES FROM THE GREEK. IT MEANS “TO DELIBERATELY THROW OUTSIDE OR INSIDE A MARKED LINE FOR EFFECT, MAKING THE AREA LARGER OR SMALLER THAN IT IS – EXAGGERATION FOR EFFECT – IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE TAKEN LITERALLY, EXAGGERATING OR DIMISHING BEYOND THE INTENT OF THE HYPERBOLE TO EXCEED ITS INTENT.” THE HYPERBOLE IS USED IN PROPHECY TO IDENTIFY THE SMALL THING AS ONE THAT IS MUCH LARGER, OR A LARGE THING THAT IS MUCH SMALLER.

IT IS NOT A LIE BECAUSE THE HEARER OR READER IS ACQUAINTED WITH THE USE OF HYPERBOLE AS AN EXAGGERATED STATEMENT.

THE EXPRESSIONS LIKE “THE WHOLE EARTH, ALL THE WORLD, OR WHERESOEVER MEN SHALL DWELL ON THE EARTH ETC,” ARE AT TIMES HYPERBOLE NOT REFERRING TO THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF THE EARTH FROM POLE TO POLE AND AROUND ITS EQUATOR. I BELIEVE THIS HAS CAUSED MANY TO EXAGGERATE THE SIZE AND STRENGTH OF THE FINAL CALIPHATE OF ANTICHRIST.

Will the Antichrist’s Caliphate cover all of today’s Earth?

July 20, 2002

http://www.tribulationperiod.com/

To many preachers, pastors, teachers, and Bible expositors this is a very simple question! And they seem startled that I would even pose such a stupid question.

The answer that I normally receive runs something like this: Brother, when God’s Word says “the whole world” it means “the whole world,” and when it says “all the earth” it means “all the earth.” What’s the matter with you, don’t you believe God’s Holy Book? When God delivered His Word to the writers of the Old and New Testaments, expressions like “the whole world, all the earth, and wherever men dwell,” meant the known world of that day. So how can we be so all fired certain that we have been given God’s authority to enlarge its definition with the passage of time? Of course, there is no question that God, who made earth, knew its size from the beginning, but where did we get the authority to change the meaning of the way He meant to be understood in the minds of those to whom he initially wrote it? For better or for worse, I believe modern day expositors have made a serious mistake in expanding the size of the antichrist’s empire as world exploration kept increasing the size of the earth. I previously laid out a case to prove my point linguistically as to how God uses expressions throughout his Word that some think mean the whole world as we know it today, but it reality do not by his use of the hyperbole. As each new continent, each new land mass, each new island, and each new ice burg was located by exploration, we changed the original meaning of the Scriptures to fit the ever expanding size of the world. I do not believe we were justified in doing this, and that because we have done it, we have expanded the antichrist’s empire into one that rules all men from Pole to Pole and around a 360-degree girth of longitude. We are now looking for an antichrist that will rule all the men on this present earth. As a result of this looking for such a man, we are not going to recognize the true antichrist when he does come on the scene. He will not dominate all the world as we know it today. He will dominate the world that was in existence through the period of Daniel’s four beasts.

Revelation 13:2 – And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

John is looking back some 700 years in time to Daniel’s four beasts, of which three, in Daniel’s day, were still future. John is writing in the days of Daniel’s fourth beast. The first beast of Daniel, the Babylonian Lion Empire, was crushed by the Medo-Persian Bear Empire, which was conquered by the Macedonian Leopard Empire, only to suffer the same fate by Daniel’s fourth Roman Empire beast. The last evil empire on this planet will be that of the antichrist. His empire will take in all the territory covered during the expansions of the four beast empires. When the antichrist first attacks Israel he will lead 10 Islamic nations, which were all occupied at times by the old Roman Empire. I believe the most likely candidates are Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and the PA. After the antichrist conquers Egypt (Daniel 11:43,44), then Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and all the other Islamic nations to the borders of India, will quickly accept him as their ruler. Within months Europe will come under his dominating influence. I fully expect him to rule all the land occupied by the four beasts during their maximum expansions, but I do not believe he will dominate the western hemisphere nations.

Revelation 6:9-11 – And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: [10] And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? [11] And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Revelation 11:15,18 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. [18] And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Revelation 16:10-16 – And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, [11] And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. [12] And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. [13] And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. [14] For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. [15] Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. [16] And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Revelation 3:3,4 – Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. [4] Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

When Satan Releases 3 Unclean Devil Spirits in Extreme Radical Islam!

Allah is a false God because he never laid down his life in the flesh for man’s sins.

The Islamic followers claim their false God Allah did not come as a sinless man in perfect flesh to offer it for their sins on the cross, and then rise from the dead. The Islamic faith teaches that Jesus was a Muslim prophet born of the Virgin Mary, and was not crucified, but was carried into heaven by Allah in the flesh, where he now waits to return during a time of great chaos in the last days when their Mahdi is killed in battle.

ISAIAH LEAVES NO QUESTION AS TO THE IDENTITY OF THE CHILD IN THE BETHLEHEM MANGER!

Isaiah 9:6,7 – For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. [7] Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

IF THERE’S NO SACRIFICE OF SINLESS BLOOD AND FLESH AND BLOOD FOR SIN, THERE IS NO REMISSION FOR SIN.

John 10:30,31 – I and my Father are one. [31] Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

I John 3:16 – Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

I John 2:22,23 – Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. [23] Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

I John 4:3 – And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Revelation 12:5,6 – And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. [6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Zechariah 13:8 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Revelation 16:12-16 – And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. [13] And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. [14] For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. [15] Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. [16] And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Revelation 17:12-17 – And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [14] These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. [15] And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. [16] And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. [17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Zechariah 13:9 to 14:4 – And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God. [1] Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. [2] For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. [3] Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. [4] And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

Revelation 17:12-17 – And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [14] These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. [15] And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. [16] And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. [17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

      

“The End of Not Yet” is Finally Arriving” – Part 6

“The End Of Not Yet Is Finally Arriving” – Part 6

THE WORLD’s ETHNIC RIOTS AND ETHNIC CLEANSING WILL INCREASE!

Please read Part 6 after reading our heading and Part 3 that follows It.

The Missouri Riots in Missouri will end, but they will increase Worldwide

I know this will be true till Jesus returns at the final Armageddon Battle

Jesus takes up saved before wrath to return with them at 2nd Advent!

If you’re interested in this, please stroll down to Part 2 issued July 9, 2014.

I promised that at the end of Part 3 of the Series I planned to individually deal with the things appearing in Luke 21:11. I have waited for 40 years for what the world now sees happening in the Middle East and in worldwide world ethnic riots, as well as those that have already occurred in America, including the one now occurring in Missouri. I knew from many Scriptures that ethic cleansing, ethnic riots, famine, and pestilence had to one day dramatically increase, as the worldwide population rose higher and higher. How in the world did I know it had to happen?

I knew it as a Christian who believes the inspired word of Almighty, and as a man who is a Christian Scientist, whose eternally saved soul is daily being converted and trained in truth and true science by the spirit and word of Jesus Christ. And do allow me to those who believe God is dead or that he never existed, I an also a man who God caused to be educated in a Seminary, many Military Institutions of Higher Learning, Colleges, Universities, and I served in Vietnam when I could have gotten out of it by leaving service, but God let me know I needed to pay my dues, and I left my wife and pregnant wife with my Mom in Little Rock, Arkansas with 5 children. I tried to come home for a brief stay when he was born in December, via the American Red Cross, but they turned me down. Neither myself or my wife were angry about it because we both believed all things work together for good as God had taught us in Romans 8.28.

Please don’t criticize me for not getting out of service when I could have gotten out of it because I only had a few months left on my enlistment when I got my orders for Vietnam at the Military Severe Warning Center in the Federal Office Building Center in Kansas City, Missouri. I can take your criticism, because I have been, and still am, being educated by Jesus Christ. He indwells my soul as Almighty God and the Everlasting Father. I will tell you who I am today totally by the grace of God. By his Spirit in me through His Holy Word, Jesus has taught me that I am an unprofitable servant, but that he will never leave me nor forsake me. Jesus has been teaching me since I was eternally saved at age 12 to let his mind grow in me, just like Jesus informed Peter he still needed to be converted after he was already saved, scripturally baptized by John, and observed the First Lord’s Supper with Jesus Christ as a member of his New Testament Church. After I have pastured for 40 plus years God has changed me from a man who thought he could handle any problem with God’s help. God has converted me into a small, insignificant child who is not God’s helper. I am now a helpless child who trusts in the manger child to deliver the church I pastor, because Jesus has taught me who he is, but it took me a long time to understand it. I know who he is because he caused Isaiah to teach me Jesus is God. My wife and I learned who Jesus was as we raised our 5 girls and 2 boys. They all knew who Jesus was when her soul went to be where Jesus rules today. Both of us were madly in love from the day we met in Georgia and are still madly in love soul to soul. But we learned to love Jesus more than we loved each other. I thank God for the life he gave us together and before he put us together. I have enjoyed every minute of it, even in tribulation, and so did she. We are still madly in love Soul to Soul. We both believed what Isaiah wrote about Jesus.

Isaiah 9:6,7 – For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. [7] Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

“The End Of Not Yet” Is Finally Arriving – Part 3

July 10, 2014

http://www.tribulationperiod.com/

Part 1 was put up on July 8, 2014

Part 2 was put up on July 9, 2014

In Part I, an exposition of Matthew 24:1-6, Mark 13:7, and Luke 21:9 was given.

In Part 2, a thorough exposition of Luke 21:10 was given as it related to its disassociation from 21:9, because by the use of “tote elegen” for “then said he,” it indicated that a new subject was being introduced, so that the “wars” of verse 9 are not related to “nation shall rise against nation” in verse 10.

Luke 21:9,10 – But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. [10] Then said he (tote elegen) unto them, nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

In Part 2, a case was made to show the root word “egeiro,” translated as “rise” in verse 10, means to “come to life, to rise from sleep, or to come into existence.” And I showed numerous Scriptures where it was used in order to make that point. A case was also made to show that the word “against” is “epi,” and that its basic meaning is “on” or “upon.” So the claim was made that “Nation shall rise (egeiro) against (epi) does not in any way refer to war, but rather the ever increasing number of nations that have come to life in the last 53 years, rising one upon another from the 51 charter members of the United Nations in 1945 to 160 by 1989, and to 200 in 2003. Nothing like this has ever happened in history. But I promised, at the close of part 2, to provide additional proof that “Nation shall rise against nation” does not refer to increasing wars, but rather to an increasing rise in the number of new nations every coming to life, and raising one upon another. And I will proceed to present additional proof at this time.

Immediately after Matthew and Mark list the signs that give the answer to the second question they asked him, which was, “And what shall be the sign of thy coming,” Jesus gives the general name for the four things he has listed in the expression, “All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

Matthew 24:7,8 – For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [8] All these are the beginning of SORROWS (ODIN)

The God-Breathed word for SORROWS is ODIN. You may look in any Greek Lexicon from any time period, and you will always find this listed centrally as the definition for ODIN – “The pains a woman suffers in the travail of childbirth, a woman’s birth pains.” The disciples knew quite well what ODIN meant. When the Olivet Discourse was written, they had no hospitals, no painkillers, and midwives delivered the babies. If a baby was lodged sideways in the womb, no one knew how to remove the baby through the stomach, and the mother and child died. The pain of normal childbirth is painful enough, but these men had listened to the shrill dying cries of women that traveled for great distances. They knew what ODIN meant. When true labor pains begin, the first pain hurts, but the next hurts a little more, the next more and closer to its precedent, and harder and closer, and harder and closer, and harder and closer, until finally the baby arrives. This is the manner the occurrence of the four things he listed as SORROWS would follow as signs his second coming was drawing near

The four things he associated with the “sorrows” that are to be signs that his coming is drawing near are: (1) nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, (2) Earthquakes, (3) Pestilences, and (4) Famines.

Luke 21:10,11 – Then said he unto them, nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation, (ethnos) and kingdom against kingdom: [11] And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Luke did not refer to them as the “beginning of sorrows” because he added “fearful sights and great signs,” which are not a part of the time of sorrows, but rather a part of Christ’s answer to the third question. They will mark the end of the world (the Gentile age), and are associated with the 2nd Advent of Christ at Armageddon. I will be showing why this is the case in future Blog expositions.

The number of new nations coming to life, and rising one upon another, started to increase like a woman’s birth pains at the end of World War II. Earthquakes started to follow the birth pains pattern in 1967. The pestilences began to follow the pattern in 1980. Famines began to follow the pattern in the early eighties, and continued to increase after 1993. I will deal with each one of these separately, Lord willing, in future parts of the Olivet Discourse, but Part 4 will deal with Luke 21:12 to 17, and I promise you will find it interesting.

“The End Of Not Yet Is Finally Arriving” – Part 6

Part 3 was put up on July 10, 2014

The word “Ethnos” does not appear in Luke 21:9 because he is referring to the many wars and commotions that he knew would start around the long fringes of the vast Roman after his ascendance on the Mount of Olives.

“Ethnos”is translated as Gentiles (plural) 93 times, 64 times as Nations, 5 times as Heathen, and 2 times as People.

I am positive we are going to see ever increasing local ethnic riots and, by the time of the 2nd Advent, when they have climbed to a max in both number and intensity.

I know exactly why man’s heart has triggered ethnic riots and ethnic cleansing. I have listened since I was 12 years to man’s explanations of why ethnic riots and ethnic cleansing, Why I am certain I know the reason – The Lord taught me from His Word.

I was born in 1932 with a heart just like Jeremiah described, and I did not know that until I was 12 years old.

Many have never believed in Jesus and still don’t believe they have such a heart.

The ISIS does not believe their false God Allah has a Son, and they have hearts just as Jeremiah describes an ungodly heart. They have no conscience in performing the heartless act of ethnic cleansing.

Jeremiah 17:9,10 – The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? [10] I the Lord search the heart I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

When God saves a Soul he seals it eternally, and then desires to convert it to HIS WAY, HIS TRUTH, AND HIS LIFE as the Soul lives the remainder of its life in its sinful physical body of flesh.

I Corinthians 15:50 – Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

Galatians 2:20,21 – I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. [21] I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

The ISIS ethnic cleansing is occurring in the Middle East because Islam does not know God.

The reason ethnic race riots I have observed since I started grade school in 1937 HAVE NOT primarily occurred because Americans did not know God. I believed there was a God since I was 4 years old when my Aunt Mae died in 1936, but I didn’t know Jesus until I was 12.

The local ethnic riot races are going to increase for several reasons: (1) All saved souls still have carnal hearts like mine and the world population has exploded since 1932 – More souls to increase local ethnic riots. (2) The sudden rise of the nations rising one upon another after World Wars Numbers I and 2 and the creation of the United Nations – More nations means more different ethnic borders which means more ethnic riots and more ethnic cleansing.

The word “ethnos” does not occur in Luke 21:9, but it occurs twice in Luke 21:10.

Luke 21:9 – But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

Luke 21:10,11 – Then said he unto them, nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation, (ethnos) and kingdom against kingdom: [11] And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

Begin Excerpts from Wikipedia Free Dictionary

An ethnicity, or ethnic group, is a socially-defined category of people who identify with each other based on common ancestral, social, cultural, or national experience. Membership of an ethnic group tends to be defined by a shared cultural heritage, ancestry, myth of origins, history, homeland, language (dialect), or even ideology, and manifests itself through symbolic systems such as religion, mythology and ritual, cuisine, dressing style, physical appearance, etc.

The largest ethnic groups in modern times comprise hundreds of millions of individuals (Han Chinese being the largest), while the smallest are limited to a few dozen individuals (numerous indigenous peoples worldwide). Larger ethnic groups may be subdivided into smaller sub-groups known variously as tribes or clans, which over time may become separate ethnic groups themselves due to endogamy and/or physical isolation from the parent group. Conversely, formerly separate ethnicities can merge to form a pan-ethnicity, and may eventually merge into one single ethnicity. Whether through division or amalgamation, the formation of a separate ethnic identity is referred to as ethnogenesis.

Depending on which source of group identity is emphasized to define membership, the following types* of ethnic groups can be identified:

* ethno-racial group — emphasizing shared physical appearance based on genetic origins
* ethno-religious group — emphasizing shared affiliation with a particular religion (or denomination, or sect)
* ethno-linguistic group — emphasizing shared language (or dialect, or even use of script)
*ethno-national group — emphasizing a shared polity (cf. national idenity)
*ethno-regional group — emphasizing distinct local sense of belonging stemming from geographic isolation

     

“The End of Not Yet” Is Finally Arriving – Part 7

“The End of Not Yet” Is Finally Arriving – Part 7

August 21, 2014

Today’s City of Jerusalem will once again fall after --- leaves office, but it will not fall to another Roman Prince. It will fall to an Islamic Caliph Antichrist as he drives Israel into the Negev Wilderness, and Jerusalem will be trodden down by his forces for 42 months. Jerusalem will be retaken by Israel led by the Messiah when he returns at his 2nd Advent to end the final battle of Armageddon.

Revelation 11:2,3 – But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. [3] And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

In Parts 1 through 6, an exposition was given that covered Mark 13:1-8, Matthew 24:1-8, and Luke 21:5 to 19. Part 6 completed Luke 21:12-19 as an answer to the first of three questions the disciples asked Jesus, which are found in Matthew 24:3, the first question being, “when shall these things be?” They wanted to know what signs would be occurring from that time until the temple was leveled.

Matthew 24:3 – And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

Part 6 ended with the exposition of Luke 21:19, so Part 7 will continue to answer this first question, beginning with Luke 21:20, which was a prophecy that was fulfilled by Roman General Cestius Gallas in 66 A.D.

Luke 21:20 – And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

There were actually two surroundings of Jerusalem by Roman troops in the Jewish War. The first occurred in response to Menahem’s breaking open of Herod’s armory on Masada, after which he quickly distributed its weaponry to his fellow Jerusalem citizens and the wilderness bandits of Masada. The events that transpired after that are fully described in the account of the JEWISH WARS by Josephus, the great historian of the time. All of this culminated in the slaughter of the Jewish colony in Caesarea, capital city of the Governor, with more than 20,000 suffering death in the brutal slaughter. This event marked the true beginning of the Jewish War. The Jews, in response to this carnage, began their war against Rome. The Roman general Cestius Gallas was commissioned by Rome to put down the Jewish rebellion. He enjoyed great success in city after city, until he came to Jerusalem. After having put down the rebellion in areas north and west of Jerusalem, he came to set up his camp in a place called Gibeon, six miles from Jerusalem. Eventually, after several skirmishes, Cestius surrounded Jerusalem, and set his camp headquarters on Mt. Scopus. His troops kept the city surrounded for some time, thinking the Jews would surrender. Then, and even today, military strategists are amazed he did not attack the city, rather than surrounding it for some time. They say he could have almost walked into the city and the Jews would have capitulated. But suddenly he withdrew from around the city and headed north. When the Jews saw this, they took courage, and viciously attacked the rear flanks of his retreating army. The Jewish losses were negligible, but the Romans and their allies lost 5,300 infantrymen and 480 cavalrymen to death. The surrounding of the city, and the battle, occurred in 66 A.D., and incurred the wrath of the Emperor of Rome. Nero dispatched the Roman general Vespasian to Israel to put down the Jewish rebellion. Vespasian’s march across Syria and northern Israel is not pertinent to this exposition, so I will not list its events. He eventually smashed Jericho and all the smaller cities around Jerusalem, and would have gone against Jerusalem, but was recalled to Rome and declared Emperor in 69 A.D., leaving his son Titus in change of the Roman legions in Israel. Titus surrounded Jerusalem, and began his siege against it in March of 70 A.D., capturing the Fortress Antonia in July, firing Herod’s Temple in August, and desolating the entire city in September. The desolations of the Jewish War ended with Mesada’s fall to the Romans in 73 A.D., which had been in Jewish hands since being conquered in 66 A.D. by insurgents. So, when Jerusalem fell in 70 A.D., Vaspasian was the Emperor of Rome and his son Titus, as a Prince of Rome, came in like a flood and desolated the city, and until the end of the war desolations continued across southern Israel.

Luke 21:21 – Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

After the first surrounding of Jerusalem by Cestius, Josephus indicates that “many of the most imminent of the Jews swam away from the city, as from a ship when it was going to sink.” It is quite likely that many believers left the city when he withdrew, and never returned, taking it as a fulfillment of the warning in Luke 21:20. When Titus came some four years later to surround it for the second time, some have written that very few believers were to be found in the city, since they believed the first surrounding was the sign of warning the city would soon be made desolate. However, since the siege began at the time of Passover, few believers would have been in the city. But there is no question that after Jerusalem was surrounded by Titus, it was made desolate some seven months later, and I am convinced this is the desolation that Jesus spoke of in Luke 21:20. In modern day terminology they were advised “to get out o’ town and head fo de hills, and don’t u’ cum bak no moe, no moe.”       

  

The Day’s of God’s Kingdom on Earth, and His Associated 1000 Year Reign, are NOT FAR Distant Events!

THE DAYS OF THE KINGDOM ARE NOT FAR DISTANT EVENTS
WELCOME TO THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS FOR ALL MEN!
ETHNIC GROUPS ARE NOW RISING AGAINST ONE ANOTHER

August 21, 2014

http://www.tribulationperiod.com/

SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST HAS FULL CONTROL IN ISIS HEARTS
AND IN SOME HEARTS WORLDWIDE IN END TIME SORROWS,
AND LOCAL CONTROL IN A FEW HEARTS IN MISSOURI RIOT!
WHY SHALL SORROWS GROW UNTIL CHRIST’S 2ND ADVENT?
MANY HAVE NON-BELIEVING HEARTS IN JESUS THE CHRIST!
THOSE TO WHOM I REFER DON’T KNOW CHRIST AS SAVIOR!
THEIR HEARTS STILL EXIST IN THE SAME BIRTH CONDITION!
BUT GOD KNOWS THE CONDITION OF EVERY HUMAN HEART!

Jeremiah 17:9,10 – The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? [10] I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

MOST OF THOSE INVOLVED IN THIS MISSOURI NIGHTMARE
RECEIVED JESUS CHRIST AS THE SAVIOR OF THEIR SOULS,
BUT LIKE ME, STILL POSSESS A CARNAL NATURE IN FLESH
THEY FOLLOW FLESH RATHER THAN THE SPIRIT OF JESUS!

THIS IS ETERNAL SALVATION OF THE SOUL BY THE LORD:

Matthew 11:28 – Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

THIS IS AN ETERNALLY SAVED SOUL WALKING IN CHRIST:

Matthew 11:29 – Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

THE BIBLICAL MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO DON’T BELIEVE:

Acts 20:20,21 – And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house, [21] Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 10:17 –So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:13 – For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

STOP RIOTING – GO HOME – REPENT (TURN TO GOD IN YOUR HEART) – ASK JESUS CHRIST TO SAVE YOUR SOUL – THEN FOLLOW HIM TO LEARN HOW ETERNALLY SAVED YOU ARE!

BIBLICAL MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO ARE BELIEVERS:

STOP GOING DOWN TO GET YOUR FLESHLY WILL DONE – PRAY AT HOME THAT GOD’S WILL BE DONE – REMOVE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR FLESHLY RIOT WALK AND ACCEPT WHATEVER GOD DOES – WHAT’S THE MATTER, DON’T YOU HAVE MORE TRUST IN HIM THAN YOUR FLESHLY RIOTS? DID JESUS GET HIS FOLLOWERS TO RIOT AGAINST THEIR FOES TO GET THEIR EARTHLY RIGHTS? – DID HE STIR UP THE MASSES TO REVOLT AGAINST ROMANS? THOSE WHO WALKED WITH JESUS WOULD NOT WALK IN THE MISSOURI RIOTS OF TODAY – JESUS WAS NOT A REBEL AS SOME CLAIM TODAY – JESUS WAS MEEK AND LOWLY IN HEART, AND DID NOT USE HIS POWER TO DESTROY MAN OR LEAD RIOTS – GO HOME AND PRAY HIS WILL, NOT YOURS, SHALL BE DONE. ASSEMBLE IN CHURCH TO WORSHIP HIM, NOT TO HEAR MESSAGES THAT FIRE UP YOUR FLESH, ESPECIALLY AS BELIEVERS CAN NOW SEE THE DAY OF HIS COMING IS APPROACHING, AND THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST IS MAKING HAY WHILE THE PHYSICAL SUN IS SHINNING, BUT IT IS HIS SPIRITUAL DARKNESS THAT YOU ARE NOW FOLLOWING BY WALKING IN THE MISSOURI ETHNIC TURMOIL. MAN WALKS IN ETERNAL DARKNESS WITHOUT JESUS. A SAVED SOUL CAN
STILL WALK IN DARKNESS AT TIMES WHEN HE WON’T FOLLOW HIS TEACHINGS.

Matthew 6:10 – Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Hebrews 10:23-25 – Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) [24] And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: [25] Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Matthew 6:33,34 –But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. [34] Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

      


Humanity is in a Ship Floating in Deep Waters Waters that is about to Sink!

It’s time for the saved to “Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid”

This Generation is losing its Confidence in many hardening Hearts.

What Effect has God’s Word Seed had on your Life Before it Ends?

The hearts of men are accelerating in hardening in this Generation!

It shall Continue to accelerate until the Final Battle of Armageddon

Humanity is in a Ship Floating in Deep Waters that is about to Sink

Hearts of passengers today are Hardening toward the Ship Captain
1
He’s God’s Seed whose will is that all men will be Saved in This Life

He’s a Captain who would have all men to be Saved and follow Him

He Saves, Seals, and Forever Keeps all who Ask Him to Save Them
2
Souls never calling upon the Seed will end up in a vast lake of Fire!
3
A saved soul can’t go to hell but can harden its heart toward Jesus

Most Saved Souls Stop Following by Not Worshipping Him Correctly,
4
Samaritan well woman: We Must Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth!
5
I urge unsaved hearts to repent & call on Jesus to save your Souls

I urge his disciples to not get out of the ship to walk out of his Will

I urge His former disciples who got out of the Ship to get back in It

I encourage Saved who didn’t become Disciples to Jump in His Ship!

(Disciples who are serving God at the end of physical life, whose lives gave the light of God’s Glory)

Now back to the ship full of disciples, including one who was not saved.

 

Placement of First 5 Revelation Seals in Regard to Tribulation Period – Part 1

Placement of First 5 Revelation Seals in Regard to Tribulation Period
The Tribulation Period will begin Post---- when Seal 6 is Opened!

Part 1

Frst 5 Seals Open In The “Beginning of Sorrows”

And we are seeing the results of the first 3 Seals

Beginning to be Fulfilled in the Old World In Seal 4!

The tribulation period Starts when Seal 6 is Opened

All the Saved are caught up when Trumpet 7 Sounds

August 23, 2014

In October 2003, I presented the seventh trumpet pre-wrath position at the Missionary Baptist Seminary in Midwest City, Oklahoma, over a period that lasted from 8 A.M. to 10:30 P.M., with a break for lunch and dinner, and several short breaks for water and circulation relief. I am very grateful to one of the fine pastors there for a question he asked concerning the seven seals. He asked me where I placed them. I had not discussed them, and he wanted to be able to envision where I put them. I am grateful he asked me, because it suddenly made me very aware of something I knew, but had not really thought about for years. I covered the seals in my second book, “The Tribulation Triad,” when I wrote it in the late seventies, but during the 35 years I lectured in more than 700 churches, seminaries, colleges, and universities. I have never, to the best of my recollection, formally presented in my lectures the “where” the first 4 seals fit in the tribulation period. I have discussed what they represent at great length, but simply did not position them as to where they belong in the tribulation period, but I did teach it at Dardanelle MBC. There is a very good reason as to why I didn’t place them specifically in the tribulation period – I did not expect most people would believe it, but I did put it in my books, and did lecture on it at my home Church. If anyone, anywhere, asked me what I believed about the first 6 Seals, I told them. So here is why I did not make it a part of my lecture – I did not believe the first five seals were during the tribulation period, and that the first four describe the events Jesus referred to as “the beginning of sorrows” in Matthew 24:7,8, Mark 13:8, and Luke 21:10,11.

Matthew 24:7,8 – For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Mark 13:8 – For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

Luke 21:10,11 – Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: [11] And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

I certainly do not believe we are now in the tribulation period, because I have long taught the first seal opened following the end of the First World World on this planet, and that the others began to open in chronological when World War II began. I should have presented this series at the time we started this web site several years ago, but better late than never. It is diagrammatically pictured on page 154 of “The Tribulation Period.” Even though I did not believe the first part of the tribulation period was going to last three and one-half years because I believed the three “he’s” in Daniel 9:27 are Messiah the Prince, and not the antichrist, knowing the vast majority of the prophetic teachers of today believe it is the antichrist, I showed the first three and one-half years on my diagram, and jammed all of it as occurring during the fifth seal. I believe when seal six opens it starts the last three and one half years of the tribulation. I do believe there will be a brief period of false peace just before the opening of the sixth seal, during the time of the fifth seal, but it will be of much, much shorter duration that most believe today. I have always taught that the sixth seal is a preview of all the horrifying events that will occur from the seventh seal through the seven trumpets and seven vials. At the time I wrote “The Tribulation Triad” I placed the time of Satan’s casting out of heaven (Revelation 12:7-12) in what most identify as the first three and one half years of a seven-year tribulation period. I have since changed my mind. Do I still change my mind about prophecy? I do not change my mind about the doctrines of salvation, the ordinances of the church, or that Jesus is coming, but I do indeed continue to change my mind about the many things in prophecy. If you are not prepared to do that, you will never learn anything. The only one who could lecture about prophecy, and never have to correct what he taught, is the Great Three-In-One. I feel sorry for all those who think they got it right the first time, and still teach exactly the same things they taught when they first taught prophecy fifty years ago. I have changed what I once believed about some things, and hopefully, if I don’t grow to think I am God, and understand it as well as He does, I will continue to change. God got it right the first time, the rest of us will have to keep changing our minds if we want to be more accurate in our interpretation of what God already knows.

I will begin this series with the first seal and, if the Lord is willing, will go through the seals, and then identify how I believe the seals, trumpets, and vials are laced into a pattern from the seventh seal through the last vial. Again, I am grateful I was asked where the seals fit in the tribulation period, because it made me realize that what I have long believed about it had become such so engrained in me that I proceeded like the hearer already knew where I placed them, which was a real goof on my part. I knew that the vast majority of writers place the seals in what is known as the tribulation period. Knowing this, I should have explained the seal positioning at some point before he asked the question, and it suddenly made me realize that I should have put this on our web pages when we first began. So I will be putting it out on updates for some time, giving the seals in chronological order.The riders on the first four seals do not picture specific individuals – they do not represent men, but rather all of mankind. They represent four phases through which mankind was to pass preceding the tribulation period. I do not believe the tribulation period has seven full years, because Jesus fulfilled more than three years of it after his baptism. The horse colors portray the characteristics of four phases in chronological order: white for peaceful conquests, red for the blood shed in wars, black for the dark eyes associated with famine, and pale for the color of death associated with pestilence or a corpse.

Revelation 6:1,2 – And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. [2] And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. The first great world war to engulf all the known world that existed when John wrote the book of Revelation in about 96 A.D. during the great Roman Empire, which was the fourth beast of Chapter Seven in Daniel, out of which a final revived empire of antichrist was to arise in the latter days, was what we called World War I. Out of World War I came the Balfour Declaration, which did finally lead to the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. The Balfour Declaration was a British statement of policy issued in 1917 by Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour. It stated British support for a Jewish national home in Palestine without prejudice to the rights of the non-Jewish population. The white horse rider represents the state of mankind that existed between the two great world wars that occurred between two German tyrants. The color of the horse, like a white dove, symbolizes the state of peace that existed between 1918 and 1932 across the territories recognized as the Roman Empire during its maximum extent. I believe most of the prophecies in the book of Revelation will be fulfilled across the known world of John’s day, not in the western hemisphere.

A long series of conquests by Hitler’s shaking of the bow, without firing any arrows, allowed the relative peace to continue until 1939. He was able to occupy several of the lands to his west, southwest, south, and southeast by a series of bluffs, without firing a shout. They succumbed to his threats, and he occupied large sections of nations around Germany. Threats, rather than arrows, secured him much land. The Prime Minister of Great Britain, Arthur Neville Chamberlain, followed a policy appeasing Hitler, rather than confronting him. So, in 1938, he went to Germany and signed the Munich Pact, which allowed Hitler to occupy part of Czechoslovakia. It was a time of peace where those who “went forth conquering, and to conquer,” did so by bluff rather than by blood. He returned home with the cry “Peace in our times.” The first of the four horse riders has come and gone. He departed the scene when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939. That is when the red horse rider came on the scene. I will cover his activities in Part 2.

ALL Saved are Caught Up WHEN Trumpet 7 Sounds

In October 2003, I presented the seventh trumpet pre-wrath position at the Missionary Baptist Seminary in Midwest City, Oklahoma, over a period that lasted from 8 A.M. to 10:30 P.M., with a break for lunch and dinner, and several short breaks for water and circulation relief.

I am grateful he asked me, because it suddenly made me very aware of something I knew, but had not really thought about for years. I covered the seals in my second book, “The Tribulation Triad,” when I wrote it in the seventies, but during the 35 years I lectured in more than 700 churches, seminaries, colleges, and universities. The first edition of the book was published by Diamond W. Graphics in Little Rock, Arkansas. Dr. J.B. Powers, a former chief of the Texarkana Book Store, came to my lectures several times in the eighties and asked me if Bogart Press could publish it, and I obtained permission from Diamond W. Graphics to do so. Bogart Press published two more of my books in the eighties. I dedicated one of my last two books because he was a great man who was always busy, but always had time for me because a had a lot to learn about how to pastor one of the Lord’s Churches. Men like J.B. Powers, O.H. Griffith, I.K. Cross, Ray Brooks, John Penn, David Robinson, John Penn and Lamar Hill were used by God to teach me that I should serve God, not Man, as well as how and why I should serve him.

What Follows I first wrote 40 years ago, and it is now happening in the vast Middle Middle East. We are on a countdown to the beginning of the Tribulation Period War which will begin after --- leaves office, I don’t know precisely how long after he leaves in February, 2017 that it will begin, but I an certain it is “drawing nigh.”

The Seals, The Trumpets, and the Vials of Revelation

Part 2 – The Second Seal

The first four seals of Revelation open before the period known as the tribulation period. They occur during the period of time Jesus called “the beginning of sorrows.”

Matthew 24:7,8 – For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.

The first seal has already opened and maxed out. The second, third, and fourth seals are already open, and will remain open until the end of the tribulation period. All three of them will intensify rapidly in the tribulation period.

In Part 1, we placed the first seal before the tribulation period in the time period from 1918 to 1939, from the end of World War I to the beginning of World War II. The second seal was opened by the appearance of the red horse rider when Hitler attacked Poland in 1939 to start World War II. The Second Advent will close it.

Revelation 6:3,4 – And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. [4] And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

The bloody 1939 German invasion of Poland marked the arrival of the red horse of war. As its rider spread out a carpet of blood by war across what was once the old Roman Empire, across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Eurasia, it began to fulfill verse four’s prophecy. We have had no lasting peace on the earth since 1939, with blood continuing to be shed off and one during the cold war across the northern half of the ancient Roman Empire, and intermittent bloody wars have continued to occur across the great African and Middle East sections of what made up the vast southern half of the Empire in John’s day. The landmass of Roman conquest in Africa and the Middle East was greater in size than the land it took over in Europe. The antichrist will arise out of this section of a revived Roman Empire, not out of Europe. The ten toes of Daniel’s great statue, the 10 horns of his fourth beast, the ten horns found on each of John’s two beasts, and the ten horns on his Dragon, are all the same ten kings, but they are not European horns, they are the horns of ten Islamic nations, and the horn that leads them comes out from the section of the Roman Empire that once covered the ancient Assyrian Empire.

The rider on the red horse is still on the move in guerilla warfare across northern Africa, and the entire Middle East. The suicide bombings, the hit and run tactics, and all the terrorist activities in the Middle East will continue to increase until a false peace comes in to lull Israel into a false sense of security. The false peace will not last for three and one half years. I believe it will last for less than three months, and be broken by a surprise Jihad of lightning quickness out of Syria and Lebanon. The total number of wars in any given year peaked in 1987, but the character of it changed from army against army to terror again everyone. However, this coming Jihad will break a brief false peace suddenly, and massive blood shed will occur across sections of the revived Roman Empire. The initial red horse blood bath will occur from Syria to Egypt, but by the end of the tribulation period, which ends with the battle of Armageddon, it will have engulfed all of what was once the great Roman Empire. The old Roman Empire is currently being revived in its southern half by the ten horns it carried to its 2000-year sleep, but, once fully revived, it will not last long. Then Christ will head a World Kingdom for 1000 years.

Daniel 11:41-43 – He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. [42] He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

Zechariah 13:8 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Daniel 7:23-27 – Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. [24] And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. [25] And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. [26] But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. [27] And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Acts 2:19-21 – And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: [20] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: [21] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The Seals, the Trumpets, and the Vials of Revelation

Part 3 – The Third Seal

The first four seals of Revelation open before the period known as the tribulation period. They occur during the period of time Jesus called “the beginning of sorrows.”

Matthew 24:7,8 – For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.

The first seal has already opened and peaked, then fell. The second, third, and fourth seals are already open, and will all remain open until the end of the tribulation period, and all three will rapidly intensify when it begins.

Their primary area of fulfillment is the maximum extent of land occupied by the Roman Empire in the first and second century. The “whole earth,” “all the world,” and similar expressions in the prophetic writings of both the Old and New Testament periods, in many instances, are hyperbolic, and do not refer to the world as we know it today, but to the world as the people, to whom they wrote, knew it from 600 B.C. to 135 A.D. The most severe judgments of the second, third, and fourth horse riders, along with the mark of the beast, will occur in this area.

I have known for a long time that if I lived to my allotted threescore and ten yea s, I would see the third seal open in the area known to those that lived in the era of Roman domination. The African continent was known to exist at the time of John’s writings, and that is where I knew it had to start. Good ole Mr. Wills, my ninth grade teacher in Junior High School, is the one who introduced me to this in 1947. It was such a simple thing, but such a certain thing, that I had no fear of being wrong about it when I wrote my first book in the seventies. It was based on food supply and population increase.

Revelation 6:5,6 – And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. [6] And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

The population explosion, particularly in Africa, which has suddenly burst on the scene, should be no surprise to the human race. The world’s population has roughly, in a somewhat similar pattern, followed a formula of daily penny doubling. Suppose someone proposed to give you five billion dollars if you would double a penny he gave you for forty days, and then give him all the proceeds of the doubling process on the fortieth day – Would you take the deal? A single penny on the first day would produce two cents on the second day, four cents on the third day, eight cents on the fourth day, sixteen cents on the fifth day, thirty-two cents on the sixth day, sixty-four cents on the seventh day, and only a dollar and twenty-eight cents on the eighth day. So, based on what you’ve read so far, it seems like a pretty good deal. But on day forty you would have to fork over more than five billion dollars. This principle has been the backbone of when the famine prophecy prediction would occur ever since eight people stepped off the Ark of Noah. This principle opened the famine seal, and will cause it to intensify until Armageddon.

The world’s famine outbreaks in its developing countries have been occurring closer and closer together in time since World War II, and the trend will accelerate until the Second Advent. Why? A few thousand years ago eight men and women descended in an ark “upon the mountains of Ararat,” and then began to multiply. At first, like the penny, the increase was insignificant from a numerical standpoint. When Jesus was born the world population had only reached about 200 million. When Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492 it had barely reached 400 million. But, like the multiplying principle of the penny, it began to accelerate noticeably about the time of the Civil War, and exploded after the Great Depression of the thirties. In 1989 the world population reached five billion and, the same year, eleven million of the earth’s residents died of starvation. The population of our planet passed six billion in October of 1999, and is predicted to reach ten billion in 2030. Some say it will only reach between eight and nine billion by 2030. But even if that is true, how can the additional three plus billion be fed, if eleven million died of starvation in 1989 with a population of only five million.

Some say, “don’t worry, agricultural technology is on the way to solving the famine problem.” No way! The latest U.N. study found ten percent of the world’s soil profile badly damaged. The three-year study accessed the soil conditions on a global scale, and involved more than 250 soil scientists. It marked the first time since World War II that soil profiles had been accessed on a global scale. As reported by Larry B. Stammer in the Los Angeles Times, the study found that “about two-thirds of all seriously eroded land is in Asia and Africa, home to most of the world’s poor. The article, using the report as its basis, proclaimed: “Despite the much acclaimed great green revolution of the past several decades, which have produced unprecedented gains in food production by the introduction of fertilizers and hybrid grains, per-capita food production has declined in some eighty developing countries in the past decade” The 1993 report, “Vital Signs, The Trends That Are Shaping Our Future,” as reported in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette of July 18, 1993, stated: “This new report shows the first clear sign that population is outpacing the available food supply for humans. The trend is mostly because of record world population growth, but also reflects a slowdown after decades of increasing food supplies. The main sources of food – farms, ranches, and oceans – all are approaching, or may have reached, their maximum per-capita output, according to the Vital Signs Report.”

The simple truth is this, in 1993, for the first time since records began to be kept, world food utilization exceeded world food production. Utilization continued to exceed food production until 1996, and a massive endeavor was made by technology to catch up with utilization. The endeavor allowed food production to pass utilization in 1996, and it continued to exceed utilization until 1999, but the population passed six billion in October of 1999, and the production again fell below utilization, where it has remained to the present. In April of 2003, a report published by the International Committee of the Fourth International, stated that 200 million people in Africa are malnourished. The world food production has not been able to keep up with the stork in the twenty-first century, and the disparity can only increase with an increasing population growth.

The third horse rider will gallop faster and faster as he heads for Armageddon. I contend that the famine now occurring in Africa, which was a part of the prophetic world when the prophecies were written, is the beginning of the fulfillment of those prophecies, and that famine will spread out of this area into all sections of the world that were known at the time the book of Revelation was written by John. There will be a serious food shortage in the United States, but it will in no way be comparable to the famines that ravage what is referred to as the “Old World,” or the pre-Columbus world. I believe the vast majority of “Old World” residents, both religious and non-religious, will take the mark of the beast to get food without hesitation, but I do not believe the mark of the beast will be put on the residents of the United States. I believe that Revelation 13:16,17 applies only to that part of today’s world that was known when John wrote Revelation.

Revelation 13:16,17 – And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: [17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Most followers of Islam have no idea whatsoever about even the existence of this prophecy. Many Catholic priests have not taught their masses in Europe about this, and only a few Catholics understand anything about it. The same is true among all the different sects of religion that are spread across the “Old World.” They will all take it without hesitation to obtain food.

I believe the antichrist’s caliphate will, at first, take in the vast Arab area of Islam from Morocco to Pakistan, but it will spread out quickly like water, and when the time for the final battle of Armageddon arrives, he will dominate all of the “Old World.”

First, The Opening Of Seal 6 – Second, The Sounding Of Trumpet 7

If you want to Understand the Mid-East Beheadings Now Occurring

I urge you to Read the Comments, Scriptures, Excerpts that Follow

I Warned About The Bloodthirsty Salafists in Several Previous Blogs

This Is the Beginning of Fulfillment of 10 Horns Prophecy Fulfillment,

When 10 Islamic Horns Give Their Power to the Beast of Revelation,

But I do not believe 10 Horns will do that till ----   is out of Office

WATCH for multiple Individuals to flow into ISIS from extreme Islam

Revelation 17:12,13 – And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

The word “AFTER” in Daniel 7:24 indicates the 11th Horn Beast will be AFTER the 10. Considering what is now happening in the Middle East it would take time for this Antichrist Beast to unite them into a fully coordinated logistical Army. I do not believe Antichrist’s united Horns will attack Israel to start the Tribulation Period until after ---   leaves offices. How long after he leaves will it take for the Antichrist to unite the 10 horns? WATCH while you wait for it to begin and each day will make it one day closer.

Daniel 7:24 – And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Mark 13:35-37 – Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: [36] Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. [37] And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

The Seals, the Trumpets, and the Vials of Revelation

Part 4 – The Fourth Seal

The first four seals of Revelation open before the period known as the tribulation period. They occur during the period of time Jesus called “the beginning of sorrows.”

Matthew 24:7,8 – For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [8] All these are the beginning of sorrows.

The first seal opened with the end of WW-1 and ended when Hitler invaded Poland to open the Red Horse Rider Events . The second, third, and fourth seals are already open, and will remain open until the end of the tribulation period, and all three will rapidly intensify when it begins. Its major effects will be experienced in the “Old World.” The word used for “pestilence” is “loimos,” which means “any deadly infectious disorder.” Death is the usual resultant of most deadly infectious disorders, and the corpse of pestilence often has a pale, greenish-yellow, jaundice appearance, as is found representing the color of the pale horse in the fourth seal.

Revelation 6:7,8 – And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. [8] And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Many plagues have passed through mankind since Adam’s fall, but few have generated a massive epidemic that just kept on accelerating, with seemingly no end or cure on the horizon. Cholera, small pox, typhoid, bubonic plague, and so on, have appeared in short bursts like false labor. AIDS was the deadly infectious virus that swept across the globe like wildfire. HIV cases worldwide increased from a trace in 1980 to more than 5 million in 1985, to more than 10 million in 1990, to more than 20 million in 1995, to 35 million in 2000, and now stand at 45 million in 2003. AIDS, the dreadful blossom of HIV, was first reported in a British sailor, that died from it in England in 1959. The hardest hit areas were those who are part of the “Old World” that was the known world during the Roman Empire. Africa is by far the hardest hit area, There were 5 million new HIV cases in 2002, and 3.1 million died of HIV/AIDS the same year. We still do not have a vaccination or a cure for it but we are now able to give much longer life to those with HIV, but people still get infected by it. And now we have Ebola spreading in the Old World.

Ebola and HIV are not the only deadly infectious disorders in the “Old World.” The World Health Organization fears that tuberculosis will kill millions during the next 25 years. The emergence of numerous drug-resistant strains, and the spread of many, have both hampered efforts by health agencies to slow the renewed spread of the consumptive pestilence. Numerous new infectious diseases have come to life since 1970.

Lord willing, I will present a summary of the final result of the second, third, and fourth riders activities in a future Blog. We are headed for an unbelievable chain of horrifying events when Seal 6 is opened, but only a handful believes it. They are still looking for a European Antichrist. Multitudes believe that the 3 “He’s” in Daniel 7:27 are not Jesus. Multitudes believe that we have 7 full prophetic years left to be fulfilled in Daniel’s 70 weeks. Multitudes believe that all the saved will be caught out before the Tribulation Period begins. Multitudes believe they are going to be caught out before Trumpet 7 sounds. Please go back and consider what the MAJORITY of preachers believed – It is recorded on our current Web Site Blogs which began in 2005.

Revelation 6:7,8 – And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. [8] And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

The fourth seal pestilence is represented by a pale colored horse. It is a yellow tint sometimes seen in the change of human color before death. I covered the fourth seal in Part 4. The worldwide massive human death after Seal 6 will be staggering, and most of it will occur in the known Old World when John wrote the Book of Revelation between 96 and 100 A.D. But many will be martyred from now until the 6th Seal opens. Most of these will occur in the Eastern Hemisphere where heaviest Muslim populations exist.

Since I have already covered the first half of Part 4, I will now finish the second half in Part 4A.

Part 5 – Affects of Three Seal Riders on Earth that lead to melting flesh at the last battle of Armageddon.

Revelation 6:3-8 – And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. [4] And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. [5] And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. [6] And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. [7] And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. [8] And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Revelation 6:8B – And POWER was given unto THEM over the FOURTH PART of the EARTH, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with THE BEASTS of the earth.

Some seem to have the impression that these three riders pass their individual judgments on the earth, with each one departing the scene when the next one shows up, and then the last one, the pale horse rider death, departs the scene as soon as the fifth seal opens. I don’t know where the idea came from, but I am convinced that these three riders are going to be galloping until the end of the last 1260 days of the tribulation, and will be striding at their greatest pace at Armageddon. The red horse pictures bloodshed, the black horse represents famine, and the pale horse represents death. These three phenomena will be experiencing their peak occurrences during the final great battle of Armageddon. The “them” in verse eight refers specifically to the rider on the red horse (death by weapon of war), the rider on the black horse (death by hunger), and the rider on the pale horse (death by pestilence). By the close of the tribulation period they will have killed billions across one-fourth of the earth (the known world in John’s day). The word translated as “earth” is “ges,” and it does not mean population, it means “earth.” Many writers try to make this a fourth of the world’s population, but that cannot be the case, because “ges” never means population.

The last feast of wildlife on the slain bodies will reach a maximum at Armageddon, and it will be the time when wildlife beasts eat the physical flesh of 10 beast kings that followed Antichrist, but the Antichrist and the False Prophet will be cast ALIVE into a lake of fire where their flesh will be instantly melted, along with the millions of the Antichrist’s Army on both sides of the Jordan River. (Read Birth Pang 16 and Prophecy Update 135).

Ezekiel 39:4 – Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

Revelation 19:17,18 – And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; [18] That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

Isaiah 66:15,16 – For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. [16] For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.

These three riders will still be going strong at Armageddon.

THIS HAS BEEN A SUMMARY OF THE FIRST 4 SEALS

We are headed for an unbelievable chain of horrifying events when Seal 6 is opened, but only a handful believes it. They are still looking for a European Antichrist. Multitudes believe that the 3 “He’s” in Daniel 9:27 are not Jesus. Multitudes believe that we have 7 full prophetic years left to be fulfilled in Daniel’s 70 weeks. Multitudes believe that all the saved will be caught out before the Tribulation Period begins. Multitudes believe they are going to be caught out before Trumpet 7 sounds. Please go back and consider what the MAJORITY of preachers believed before 1740 – It is recorded throughout our current Web Site Blogs which began in 2005. I am not a revisionist, but a multitude of revisionists came out of the Great Awakening and Evangelistic Ages. Many of their teachings are now heard on Radio, Television, and in Church.

Revelation 6:9-11 – And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: [10] And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? [11] And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

These are the martyred souls of the saints of the ages, and they are very anxious for the Second Advent, since they will return to reign with Christ for 1000 years on this present earth. The white robes are a reward for a willingness to die for the word of God and the testimony of Christ they gave from it. Their fellow servants and brethren are still on the earth, and will remain there up to the time of their martyrdom before or at the sounding of the seventh trumpet. Both groups will be in heaven after the sounding of the seventh trumpet. White robes are part of the eternal outer garment of the saved that were faithful. The souls under the altar were faithful unto death. There will be saved men and women who will be faithful unto death in the tribulation period. Some will be faithful, but will not be required to give their lives. They will also wear the outer robe as a garment forever, but the unfaithful saved will not wear the outer garment in heaven. The “little season” they are told to wait in rest is the time left before their fellow servants and brethren come up to join them when the seventh trumpet sounds, after which God will perform their request to “judge and avenge our blood on them (the lost) that dwell on the earth.” Some saved in heaven will not receive a robe because of unfaithfulness.

Revelation 16:15 – Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.

“Naked” did not mean completely uncovered to John. It meant to be covered by the inner garment without an outer garment. All the saved will go out on the seventh trumpet, both faithful and unfaithful, and all will be judged in heaven for rewards following it.

Revelation 11:15,18 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. [18] And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Chapter 12 in Revelation is a parenthetical chapter, and the remnant in the midst of the woman Israel, being the remnant of her Son Jesus Christ, will have his testimony and keep his commandments in the Negev. The woman Israel will flee into the Negev wilderness 1260 days prior to Armageddon with her Seed’s remnant in the midst of her, and the Seed’s remnant, the 144,000, will be taken up when the seventh trumpet sounds. The two men who are the witnesses of God will be among the 144,000, but will be caught up IMMEDIATELY before the blowing of the seventh trumpet. They will be among those who “should be killed as they were” in seal five, Revelation 6:11.

Revelation 12:5,6,17 – And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. [6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. [17] And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 7:4 – And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Revelation 11:3 – And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Revelation 11:7-9 – And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

Revelation 11:12 – And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. (The 144,000 are caught up within the same hour after the two witnesses go up)

Revelation 20:4 – And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

I do this series hoping some will consider it before it suddenly Begins

When Seal 6 Opens They find Themselves with Fearful Failing Hearts

Revelation 6:7-17 – And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. [8] And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. [9] And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: [10] And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? [11] And white robes were given unto every one of them; AND IT WAS SAID UNTO THEM, THAT THEY SHOULD REST YET FOR A LITTLE SEASON, UNTIL THEIR FELLOW-SERVANTS ALSO AND THEIR BRETHREN, THAT SHOULD BE KILLED AS THEY WERE, SHOULD BE FULFILLED. [12] And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; [13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. [14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. [15] And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; [16] And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: [17] For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Tribulation Period Humans still call on the name of the Lord

Acts 2:19-21 – And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: [20] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: [21] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

The End of “Beginning of Sorrows” Intensifies into Seal 6

Luke 21:10,11,25-28 – Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: [11] And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. [25} And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. [28] And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

All saved go up on Trump 7 to be judged – God destroys those destroying Earth.

Revelation 11:15 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. [18] And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

I Corinthians 15:57,58 – But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. [58] Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Luke 9:23 – And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

It will be shown at the Judgment Seat of Christ when it is Manifested!

It will determine your type of apparel and where you abide in Heaven!

I would be amiss in my assignment if I did not warn the Saved of This!

All the Saved will be in heaven eternally and all the lost will be in Hell!

But many Saved have had Little Interest in their Heavenly Inheritance

Use what Little Time you have left to let him Convert your saved Soul!

Are you letting God prepare your saved soul with a wedding Garment

Does Mankind See God Inside you on the Outside as You Follow Him?

Luke 22:31-33 – And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: [32] But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art CONVERTED, strengthen thy brethren. [33] And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

Matthew 26:34,35 – Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. [35] Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. LIKEWISE ALSO SAID ALL THE DISCIPLES.

Hell’s Billions never Accept the Seed while they live on the Earth

Luke 8:11,12 – Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. [12] Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.

WW-1 Ended With A League Of Nations Saying Peace and Safety,

Then A Relative Period Of Peace Existed Until Hitler Arose In 1932

And took huge tracks without War waving a bow without Using It

Mankind Cried for continued Peace and safety from 1936 to 1939,

But in 1939 The RED HORSE Galloped in AS Hitler Invaded Poland!

Millions Have Been Eternally Saved Since the End of World War 2

Their dead bodies are in graves – their living souls are In Heaven

Many eternally saved souls are still living in sinful bodies of Flesh

Waiting for the First Resurrection to receive a new eternal Body!

I Corinthians 15:50-52 – Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. [51] Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the LAST trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Seals 2 to 5 were a “Beginning of Sorrows” for man’s Immorality

Seal 6 is the beginning of God’s judgment in a Tribulation Period

Revelation 6:12 – And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Vial 1 is The Beginning of God’s Wrath on Mankind Still On Earth

Revelation 16:1 – And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

Millions have been Saved since WW-2 whose Souls are in Heaven

But to what degree were their Souls Converted by His Teachings?

Some a Little, Some More, and Some To A Christian Maturity Life!

how Much have you Let Jesus Add to your Faith Since Salvation?

Luke 11:8,13-18 – Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. [13] They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. [14] And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection. [15] But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. [16] No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. [17] For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.

Matthew 28:18-20 – And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [19] Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

II Peter 1:2-8 – Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, [3] According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: [4] Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. [5] And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; [6] And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; [7] And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. [8] For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Christ’s Bride made herself ready by letting her Soul fall madly in love with him as she learned about Jesus from his Word. The Bride’s Soul came to know him as Counselor, Comforter, Almighty God, Everlasting Father, and the Prince of her Soul’s Peace. He will soon come to bring Millennial peace at His Second Advent.

Revelation 19:5-9 – And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great. [6] And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. [7] Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. [8] And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. [9] And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, THESE ARE THE TRUE SAYINGS OF GOD.

THESE ARE ALSO THE TRUE SAYINGS OF GOD IN ISAIAH

I REGRET THAT IT TOOK ME SO LONG TO FOLLOW HIM!

Isaiah 9:6,7 – For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. [7] Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

MY SOUL WAS SAVED AND ETERNALLY SEALED AT AGE 12

I WAS A PASTOR WHEN I UNDERSTOOD ISAIAH 9:6 And 7

I NOW FOLLOW HIM AS ISAIAH SAID HE WAS IN 6 AND 7!

I NOW KNOW WHY MY PASTOR’S BURDEN WAS SO HEAVY

I HAD SCRIPTURAL BAPTISM – I WAS CALLED TO PASTOR,

HE TAUGHT ME HOW TO PASTOR A LOCAL BODY IN LOVE!

AND AS GOD TAUGHT ME TO LET HIM PULL BY HIS POWER

I FINALLY LEARNED JUST WHY MY YOKE WAS VERY HEAVY

I NOW LET CHRIST PASTOR DMBC AS I WALK IN HIS YOKE!

Matthew 11:28-30 – Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [29] Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. [30] For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

I DON’T PASTOR LIKE MANY THAT FEAR LOSING A PULPIT!

I STOPPED HAVING MY WAY IN OUR BUSINESS MEETINGS

AND POUTING WHEN I FAILED TO HAVE MY WAY IN THEM

I PASTOR AS CHRIST TEACHES ME TO LOVE HIS CHURCH!

SO NOW HIS YOKE IS EASY AND MY BURDENS ARE LIGHT!

I THANK CHRIST DAILY FOR TEACHING ME ABOUT A YOKE

I’M THANKFUL I BECAME TOO OLD TO PASTOR – WHY?

IT STOPPED CALLS TO PREACH IN VIEW OF A CALL!!

KNOW WHY I’M STILL PASTORING DMBC AT AGE 82?

KNOW WHY DMBC LET ME PREACH 700+ REVIVALS?

SINCE IT WAS GOD’S WILL THE DMBC ALLOWED IT

I’VE TRIED TO WARN MANKIND IN 700+ MEETINGS!

I WROTE 3 BOOKS TO WARN SEAL 6 OPENS SOON

I FINISHED MY VIETNAM ALIVE THEN CAME HOME!

I’LL SOON FINISH THIS LIFE TO SEE GOD’S HOME

AFTER I SEE JESUS I WANT TO SEE MY EMOGINE

Revelation 6:8,9 – And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth (ges), to kill with sword (red horse), and with hunger (black horse), and with death (pale horse), and with the beasts of the earth. [9] And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

“Ges” is not used to represent population – It refers to the land covered – Look it up for yourself

Seals 2, 3, 4, and 5 are open and martyrs are now increasing in number across the Old World that existed when John wrote Revelation. The time of the beginning of the final war of the Age of the Gentiles will begin when Seal 6 opens at some point in time after --- is no longer in Office.

I’ve never known, nor do I know, the day or the hour when Jesus Arrives

But I am sure the Beginning of Sorrows makes me Know it is Drawing Near

And I Also know all the lost go to Hell and the Saved are Judged by Christ

Plus I am Acutely Aware that the Word “Generation” represents an “Age”

The “Age” of the Gentiles will Close at the Second Advent of Jesus Christ!

Jesus Shall Decide What the Saved Wear and Where they Live in Heaven!

Abode and Apparel is determined by degree of Post Salvation Conversion

 Worthiness!

Luke 21:28-36 – And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. [29] And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; [30] When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. [31] So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. [32] Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. [33] Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. [34] And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. [35] For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. [36] Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

ABRAHAM WAS VIEWED AS GOD’S FRIEND BY HIS WORKS
IT IS TIME FOR THE SAVED TO BE SEEN AS HIS FRIENDS
SAVED JUDGMENT SEAT WILL REVEAL JESUS’ FRIENDS

Luke 22:28-33 – Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. [29] And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; [30] That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. [31] And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: [32] But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art CONVERTED, strengthen thy brethren. [33] And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.
CONVERTED – epistrepho – To turn in mind, to change in mind, to become as it were another man – The action is performed on the subject and the subject responds to it favorably.

ABRAHAM WAS ETERNALLY SAVED WHEN HE BELIEVED GOD!
Romans 4:1-8 – What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? [2] For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. [3] For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. [4] Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. [5] But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. [6] Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, [7] Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. [8] Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

AS AN ETERNALLY SAVED MAN HE WAS CONVERTED
Romans 4:19 to 5:5 – And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb: [20] He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; [21] And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. [22] And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. [23] Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; [24] But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; [25] Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. [1] Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: [2] By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. [3] And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; [4] And patience, experience; and experience, hope: [5] And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. (Jesus’ living faith is in us!)

We are saved by a living faith, not a dead faith, and James makes the point that a living faith will produce works varying in degree from one iota to an unbelievable total in some.

James 2:17-24 – Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. [18] Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. [19] Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. [20] But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? [21] Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? [22] Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? [23] And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. [24] Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A DEAD JESUS
Philippians 2:13 – For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Galatians 3:26 – For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

   

Placement of First 5 Revelation Seals in Regard to the Tribulation Period – Part 6

The first five seals are a chain of events that are already in motion. The first four have already opened, and I am persuaded that the fifth is about to be played out under the throne by the souls of the martyred saints found in Revelation 6:9-11. I would not be surprised at all if the sixth seal opens at some point in time before 2019. It will open, but WHEN is just OPINION on my part.

The sixth seal gives John a preview of what will happen when the seventh seal is opened and the seven trumpets begin to sound. I believe that the sixth seal contains a fore view of the events that will occur when the trumpets are blown and the vials are emptied. The opening of the sixth seal sets the stage for the sounding of the first trumpet – and then remains unsealed up to the pouring out of the seventh vial.

When God showed John the events of the end times, he first showed him a generalized picture of what would be happening on earth and in heaven during the period that proceeds the tribulation period, in what Matthew and Mark called “the beginning of sorrows.” This picture was presented in the opening of the first four seals. The fifth seal is a heavenly scene of souls in heaven anxious for God to take action against those who spilled their blood, and for his Second Advent. When the sixth seal is opened, God gives John a preview of what the last 1260 days of the tribulation period will be like. But it is an overview, and the specifics are not revealed until the seventh seal is opened, all seven trumpets sound, and all seven vials have been emptied. The sixth seal is a broad outline of what God intends to do during the time span from the seventh seal, through the trumpets, and up to the last drop of the seventh vial. The trumpets and vials are the specific events within the broad outline of the sixth seal. The trumpets and vials are interlaced, and picture the same events. Each trumpet announces the beginning of an event, and its numerically corresponding vial closes it. The sound of the trumpet heralds the start of a phase, and when the last drop of the corresponding vial is poured out, the phase is finished. Trumpet number 1 is the judgment of God until it phases into Vial number 1, at which time it becomes the wrath of God. Trumpet number 2 shows the judgment of God until it phases into Vial number 2, at which time is becomes the wrath of God. This sequence is true through all seven trumpets and seven vials. The trumpets represent the judgment of God on both the saved and the lost. The vials represent the wrath of God upon the lost. The sixth seal gives a preview of the trumpets and vials. It first previews the judgments of the phenomena which are going to be unleashed by the trumpets in Revelation 6:12-14, and then gives a preview of the wrath of God that will be unleashed by the vials in Revelation 6:15-17.

Revelation 6:12-17 – And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; [13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. [14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. [15] And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; [16] And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: [17] For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Verses 12 to 14 are God’s judgment. They basically tell what will be produced during the time of the trumpets. Verses 15 to 17 are God’s wrath. They basically picture what will be produced on mankind by the vials.

God’s wrath will come after the sounding of trumpet 7, when vial 1 of his wrath, which corresponded to trumpet 1, is poured out. Trumpet 7 sounds in Revelation 11:15.

Revelation 11:15 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

God’s “wrath is come” after the seventh trumpet sounds, while the saved are being judged in heaven after being taken up at its sounding, and are at Christ’s judgment seat for rewards for works done during their time in their physical bodies.

Revelation 11:18 – And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

[14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
 
The sixth seal catastrophe begins with an earthquake.  The Antichrist will attack immediately before the great earthquake, driving Israel into the Negev and leaving them there for the last 1260 days of the tribulation period. This earthquake is the first earthquake in the book of Revelation, and it opens 1260 days of tribulation before Armageddon. The last earthquake in Revelation is the greatest of all, and it closes the tribulation period at Armageddon. There will be countless numbers of earthquakes of great intensity between these two, but these are the first and the last in the tribulation period, occurring on the sixth seal opening, and the empting of the seventh vial. They will a part of God’s judgment upon both the lost and the unfaithful saved during the seals and the trumpets. However, those earthquakes occurring from the seventh trumpet to the last vial will be much greater in intensity because they are a part of God’s wrath on the earth.
 
Revelation 16:16-21 – And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. [17] And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. [18] And there were voices, and thunders, and lightening; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. [19] And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. [20] And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. [21] And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.he first five seals are a chain of events that are already in motion.

Trumpet number 2 shows the judgment of God until it phases into Vial number 2, at which time is becomes the wrath of God. This sequence is true through all seven trumpets and seven vials. The trumpets represent the judgment of God on both the saved and the lost. The vials represent the wrath of God upon the lost. The sixth seal gives a preview of the trumpets and vials. It first previews the judgments of the phenomena which are going to be unleashed by the trumpets in Revelation 6:12-14, and then gives a preview of the wrath of God that will be unleashed by the vials in Revelation 6:15-17.
 
Revelation 6:12-17 – And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; [13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. [14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. [15] And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; [16] And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: [17] For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
 
Verses 12 to 14 are God’s judgment. They basically tell what will be produced during the time of the trumpets. Verses 15 to 17 are God’s wrath. They basically picture what will be produced on mankind by the vials.
 
God’s wrath will come after the sounding of trumpet 7, when vial 1 of his wrath, which corresponded to trumpet 1, is poured out. Trumpet 7 sounds in Revelation 11:15.
 
Revelation 11:15 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
 
God’s “wrath is come” after the seventh trumpet sounds, while the saved are being judged in heaven after being taken up at its sounding, and are at Christ’s judgment seat for rewards for works done during their time in their physical bodies.
 
Revelation 11:18 – And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Opening the Seals, Trumpets, and Vials

Part 8 – The Last 1260 Days of Tribulation

The Seals, the Trumpets, and the Vials

Part 8 – The Seventh Seal Introduces Seven Trumpets

I covered the sixth seal in Part 7 – It is an overview, a preview, a brief outline, of the coming judgments of God during the seven trumpets upon the land, the water, the atmosphere, and interior of the earth, and of the wrath of God on the lost of the earth from the seven vials his angels pour out on it. Verses 12 to 14 in the verses that follow are a preview of the coming judgment of God in the seven trumpets that follow the seventh seal. Verses 15 to 17 are a preview of the coming wrath of God in the seven vials that are poured out following the blowing of the seventh trumpet.

Revelation 6:12-14 – And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; [13] And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. [14] And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

Revelation 6:15-17 – And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; [16] And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: [17] For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

The seventh seal opens, and there is a hushed breath of silence in heaven in heaven before the trumpets begin to sound. The seventh seal introduces, and contains, the elements in the seven trumpets of God’s judgment.

Revelation 8:1-6 – And when he had opened THE SEVENTH SEAL, THERE WAS SILENCE IN HEAVEN ABOUT THE SPACE OF HALF AN HOUR.  [2] And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. [3] And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. [4] And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. [5] And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. [6] And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

The first trumpet judgment on mankind comes up from beneath the earth’s land interior into its atmosphere, and then comes down on the earth. (See Birth Pang 3).

The second trumpet judgment on mankind comes up from beneath the earth’s ocean and sea floors, and then comes down on its liquid surface. (See Birth Pang 4).

The third trumpet judgment on mankind comes down on part of the earth’s water supply in the person of a comet named Wormwood. (See Birth Pang 12).

The fourth trumpet judgment on mankind comes up out of the earth and gradually darkens the entire upper part of the earth’s atmosphere. (See Birth Pangs 7, 9 & 10).

The fifth trumpet judgment upon man comes up out of the smoke from the interior of the earth in the form of demonic depraved fallen angels. (See Birth Pang 6).

The sixth trumpet judgment upon man comes up on the earth out of a demonic world under the Euphrates River as a vast multi-million army of terrifying demonic riders on devilish creatures. (See Birth Pangs 6 & 8).

The seventh trumpet separates the saved from the lost on the earth as the saved are all gathered up at the rapture, and thereafter judged in heaven. “Thy wrath is come” on the earth while the saved are being judged in heaven for rewards. God’s wrath begins following the seventh trumpet when the first vial of it is poured out on the earth.

Revelation 11:15 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Revelation 11:18 – And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

Revelation 16:1,2 – And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. [2] And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

What God’s Tectonic Plates Send Up Comes Back Down!

Part 1

http://www.tribulationperiod.com/

Please consider the diagram and narrative I put up on Archive Prophecy Update Number 321, December 9, 2011.  I had taught it for many years at DMBC prior to issuing it on our web site.  The exacting numbers are not absolutely specific, and are not intended to be iron clad, but I have long considered they will not be too far off in accuracy.  I have waited for many years for the pre-conditions to begin to form before Israel is attacked by the Antichrist into what see on Diagram 321.  These pre-conditions are now in place, and I am confident the initial attack will occur after Obama leaves office,          BUT I DO NOT KNOW PRECISELY WHEN SEAL 6 WILL OPEN!  I do know Seals 1 through 5 have NOW opened as the “Beginning of Sorrows,” and Seal 6 begins the Tribulation Period.  When it does finally open, the tectonic chaos and initial attack of Antichrist will occur in the same time frame.

Revelation 8:1-6 – And when he had opened THE SEVENTH SEAL, THERE WAS SILENCE IN HEAVEN ABOUT THE SPACE OF HALF AN HOUR.  [2] And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. [3] And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. [4] And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. [5] And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. [6] And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

The first trumpet judgment on mankind comes up from beneath the earth’s land interior into its atmosphere, and then comes down on the earth. (See Birth Pang 3).

SPECIAL PROPHECY UPDATE NUMBER 182B

July 27, 2004

Update of First Book “Tectonic Chaos” (1977)

Tectonic Chaos – Chapter 5 – Hail and Fire Mingled with Blood

Please take a look in our Birth Pang Figures found in our Archives for the several Figures referenced in this and other chapters in this updated 1977 book.  Figure 3 shows the world’s tectonic plates.  Figures 4 to 8 also apply to this chapter.

Revelation 8:7 – The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Revelation 8:7 does not mix frozen hailstones with fire.  It mixes large volcanic bombs (hail) and fiery blood-red lava.  I believe what John witnessed was a worldwide pattern of volcanic eruptions around the edges of the tectonic plates.  This verse is a perfect description of a chain of volcanic eruptions.  As the volcanic bombs (hail) are thrown great distances from the caldera vents, fires are started, and as the fiery lava moves across the surface of the earth it burns up everything in its path.  I challenge you to view films of an actual eruption and then not believe this is what John saw in his vision from God.  (See Archives – Birth Pang 3)

PROPHECY UPDATE NUMBER 206

January 6, 2005

Number of Worldwide Earthquakes (19 Year Cycles)

Greater Than 1 on the Richter Scale

Reported by U.S. Geological Survey 1948 to 2005

This is an update of the earthquake statistics I began to keep some 27 years ago, updating them every year, and presenting them as I conducted lectures across the earth. You will find them in all my books, and may view them by clicking on “Birth Pang” on Our Menu, and then on “Birth Pang Figures.”

What follows is Prophecy Update Number 18, issued in 2001, and from which you may read about these statistics.

ARCHIVE PROPHECY UPDATE 18 QUOTE BEGINS

Before the sons of God were to appear in glorious manifestation on the millennial earth, there was to be a groaning of God’s creation. The earth was to travail like a woman experiencing birth pangs. We were advised of this by Paul in verses 19 and 22 of the eighth chapter of Romans, where he wrote: “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God,” and “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and trvaileth in pain together until now.” The birth pangs were occasionally felt during the time of Paul’s writings, but Matthew indicated they would increase noticeably just before Christ’s coming for his saints in verses 7b and 8 of the twentieth-fourth chapter of his gospel, where he wrote: “And there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers (many different) places. All these are the beginning of sorrows (odin).” The word “odin” is used for “sorrows” by Matthew, and the same root word for “odin” is used by Paul in Romans 8:22 to describe the “travail” of God’s creation. You may use any Greek lexicon of your choice, and you will find that the basic meaning of the word “odin” refers to the birth pangs experienced by a woman in the travail of delivering a child. Therefore, when the Lord said “All these,” in verse 8, he was referring specifically to the birth pangs that would be suffered, in a period of time just before his coming, because of famines, pestilence, and earthquakes. He indicated that all three of these phenomena would increase steadily like a woman’s birth pangs, ever increasing in this period labeled as “the beginning of sorrows.” Down through the centuries earthquakes, famine, and pestilence have been used repeatedly to teach that the coming of Jesus was at hand. However, they have never followed the “odin” pattern of a woman’s birth pangs during recorded history, that is, until now. In order for this prophecy of Christ to be fulfilled these phenomena had to behave like a woman’s birth pains. When true labor pangs begin, they become greater and greater in frequency and intensity with the passage of time. Earthquake surges have come and gone in short duration patterns since this prophecy was uttered, but now, for the first time since it was given, they are steadily following the pattern of “odin.” The same basic pattern is now being followed in famine, pestilence, and earthquakes, just as Jesus indicated. In this update we will show the “odin” pattern in earthquakes. In future updates we will cover pestilence (loimos) and famine, Lord willing. The statistics which will follow were first extracted from the Earthquake Data File Summary, U. S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Environmental Data Service, Boulder, Colorado, which was issued in May of 1976. I have received updates to the original report from the same source every year since 1977. While the intensity of the earthquakes is similar to the Richter scale, with which most people are familiar, they are not exactly the same, but rather than launch out into a technical discussion of the difference, let me simply state that, for comparative purposes, they are the same. They come from Table 2 – Summary of data file by year by magnitude and depth. As you read the numbers which follow in the narrative, remember they are referring to earthquakes reported across the earth greater than one in intensity on the Richter scale. Before Israel officially became a nation in May of 1948, there were never more than 6,000 earthquakes greater than one reported in any 19 year period. I chose a 19 year cycle, because that is the number of years which passed between the time that Israel became a nation (1948), and the time she finally took back Old Jerusalem and her Temple

BIRTH PANG NUMBER 4

April 21, 2010

http://www.tribulationperiod.com/

The same God who made the ocean and sea floors of the world also happens to control them!  God used his own creation to destroy man when man had become as corrupt in the days of Noah as we are today, leaving a remnant of eight humans.

Genesis 6:9,11-13 – These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.  [11] The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. [12] And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. [13] And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I WILL DESTROY THEM WITH THE EARTH.

Genesis 7:11 – In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

When man has again reached the degree of corruption in Noah’s day, God will once again use his creation to destroy sinful man, not with water, but will the fire of his wrath in the form of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions affecting his earth and his heavens, and will also use his creations in the universe as well.  The vials of wrath follow the catching out of the saved.

Luke 17:26.27 – And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. [27] They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, UNTIL THE DAY that Noe ENTERED into the ark, and the flood came, AND DESTROYED THEM ALL.

GOD’S WRATH WILL NOT COME ON THE SAVED BECAUSE THEY WILL ENTER INTO HEAVEN ON THE DAY HIS WRATH IS POURED ON EARTH.

I Thessalonians 5:9 – For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Revelation 11:15,18 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. [18] And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; AND SHOULDEST DESTROY THEM WHICH DESTROY THE EARTH.

There will be fantastic numbers of seamounts rising from the oceans and seas along the tectonic plate boundaries as exposed active volcanoes during the 3 and ½ years prior to Armageddon.

SEAMOUNTS ARE TYPICALLY FORMED FROM EXTINCT VOLCANOES

“AN ESTIMATED 30,000 SEAMOUNTS OCCUR ACROSS THE GLOBE”

THE FOLLOWING QUOTED PARAGRAPH IS FROM WIKIPEDIA

Seamount

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A seamount is a mountain rising from the ocean seafloor that does not reach to the water’s surface (sea level), and thus is not an island. These are typically formed from extinct volcanoes, that rise abruptly and are usually found rising from a seafloor of 1,000–4,000 metres depth. They are defined by oceanographers as independent features that rise to at least 1,000 metres above the seafloor. The peaks are often found hundreds to thousands of metres below the surface, and are therefore considered to be within the deep sea. An estimated 30,000 seamounts occur across the globe, with only a few having been studied. However, some seamounts are also unusual. For example, while the summits of seamounts are normally hundreds of metres below sea level, the Bowie Seamount rises from a depth of about 3,000 metres to within 24 metres of the sea surface.

CHAPTER 6 – BURNING MOUNTAINS AND BLOODY SEAS

http://www.tribulationperiod.com./

Revelation 8:7-9 – The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. [8] 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; [9] 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.

In the previous chapter a lengthy discourse of verse seven was given; a discourse portraying the terrible effects of volcanic spillage on dry land masses. I have attempted to build a case that God will move the massive tectonic plates of figure 3 to pro­duce unbelievable dry land eruptions. But the shifting of the plates would most assuredly not only affect the land, for most of these great cracks exist on the world’s ocean and sea floors. John’s eyes had been fixed on the horrifying volcanic burning of the earth’s greenery (verse seven), but as he watched the land scene the underwater volcanic activity remained hidden from his view. It is therefore only natural that the dry land events were reported before the water events.In order to correctly interpret verse eight, one must under­stand what the expression “as it were” means, and how it is used in relation to the subject and verb of the middle section of this verse. Many commentaries identify the great burning mountain as a meteorite that falls into the sea from heaven, but I will attempt to prove that this is not the case.

The expression “as it were” is one very small Greek word. That word is ‘hos.’ Hos is a particle having a very wide variety of uses in the New Testament. At times it applies to the subject, at other times it applies to the verbal action, and sometimes it applies to both. Hos can be translated as “what looked like,” “it was as though,” “what seemed to be,” “it was as if,” “as it were,” etc.

The verbal action “was cast” Is a single Greek verb, ‘eblethe,’ which expresses punctiliar action in past time and, as such, can be translated “had been cast.”

John used hos in John 7:10 to describe the action performed by the subject:

But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

Paul in 1 Corinthians 4:9 used hos to refer to a verbal action affecting the subjects:

For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

Now considering the usage of hos and eblethe in Revelation 8:8, let us carefully examine what John saw and how he reported it:

And the second angel sounded, and as it were [hos] a great moun­tion burning with fire was cast [eblethe] into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood.

Hos (as it were) refers to both the subject (great burning mountain) and the verbal action eblethe (had been cast) that began at some point in time before John actually saw the sub­ject. John’s attention had been fixed on a horrible scene of fiery objects coming down upon the dry land masses of the world, destroying all the green grass and one-third of the trees. Suddenly the second trumpet shifted his eyes to the sea, and he beheld what looked like a great mountain on fire in the midst of the sea. John did not know where it came from, so he used the expression (hos) to tell us it was as if it had been cast into the sea. John did not see it cast into the sea, because the tense of the verb eblethe indicates the action that caused it to be in the midst of the sea occurred before John actually saw it there. What John saw is what you see in figure 5. The mountain had been cast into the sea from beneath, not from above as many commentaries assume. Not all commentaries take the falling meteor position. Among one of the more reputable that does not is the Expositor’s Greek Testament Volume five of this highly esteemed work provides the following information concerning Revelation 8:8 and the rest of the book of Revelation:

Volcanic phenomena… in the Egean archipelago are in the background of this description, and of others throughout the book; features such a the disturbance of islands and the mainland, show­ers of stones, earthquakes, the sun obscured by a black mist of ashes, and the moon reddened by volcanic dust, were the natural conse­quences of eruption in some submarine volcano, and Thera—adjoin­ing Patmos—was in a state of more or less severe eruption during the first century. All this suggested the hideous colors in which the final catastrophe was painted by the imagination of pious contem­poraries. In the eruption of 1573, the sea round Thera was tinted for twenty miles round, and even when the submarine volcano is quies­cent, “the sea in the immediate vicinity of the cone is of a brilliant orange color, from the action of oxide of iron.” In 1707 a large rock suddenly appeared in the sea, during the eruption, and owing to noxious vapors ‘all fish in the harbor died.’

It is difficult to prove conclusively the case for volcanic erup­tions by linguistics alone, but the effects produced in the form of blood-red water that destroys aquatic life is a natural conse­quence of volcanic eruptions. There have been thousands of meteorites that have fallen into man’s water supplies for many years and yet not one case of poisoning has ever been validated. Meteors are not poisonous nor do they turn water a continuing red.

Please do not let the “orange” color mentioned in the quote from the Expositor’s Greek testament mislead you. You will not find the color “orange” in the entire Bible. One of the reasons the word “blood” appears so often in Revelation is that it figu­ratively covers a wide range of blood shades from orange to red­dish black. Ask any hematologist about the tremendous change in blood color found in various parts of the human anatomy.

The surface of Mars has a very high hematite iron content that gives it its red color and its nickname as the “Red Planet.”  It is rust produced from hematite oxidation, and is found all over Mars.  It forms whenever iron is oxidized by being exposed to air.

Basaltic magma has the highest iron content of the three types of volcanic eruptions.

There are three types of magma that burst onto the earth’s surface as blood-red lava, and basaltic magma has the highest iron content of the three, with virtually all oceanic eruptions being of the basaltic variety. If a piece of iron is left long enough in a glass of water it will turn the water a rusty red by oxida­tion If the water is heated the oxidation (rusting) will be accelerated. As the basaltic material makes contact with the ocean seawater its temperature is often in excess of six hundred degrees centigrade, and this produces fantastically accelerated oxidation of its iron content. In virtually all oceanic eruptions a blood-red shield is formed, and this shield is carried away from the source many miles by the currents of the sea. When coupled with the other chemical reactions associated with maritime volcanic eruptions, it acts like a smothering aerobic blanket on aquatic life as it spreads across the seas and oceans of the world.

God, who created all things and will use them to fulfill His prophecies, has also created life forms in the sea that can pro­duce dreadful effects. There are certain microscopic organisms that exist in the sea that can reproduce at fantastic rates. Under certain conditions these oceanic organisms have repro­duced to exhibit over sixty million in a single quart of seawater. They are deadly only under certain conditions which I shall describe later. As long as these organisms remain in a certain environmental temperature range there is no problem. They will remain absolutely harmless. In fact, if the organism is car­ried into a cold water zone by the currents of the ocean, God has so designed it that a protective crust forms around it, and the shield remains until it is carried back into a favorable temper­ature environment. But there is one thing that must never be performed on this organism: never heat the water. For if you heat the water above the organism’s normal temperature envi­ronment, the following quote from a standard biological text describes what will happen:

Under certain conditions it reproduces at a fantastic rate; sixty million have been counted in a single quart of seawater. The organ­ism tends to utilize the dissolved oxygen at a rate which creates an anaerobic condition. Thus aerobic organisms, such as fish, die. It also releases an airborne “poison gas” which irritates the human res­piratory tract and may cause coughing, sneezing and even shortness of breath.

During the red tide off the coast of Florida in 1952 and again in 1954 enormous numbers of fish died, and the shore was littered for miles with stinking fish.

Another dinoflagellate, Gonyauiox, also causes waters to appear a rusty red at times becaue of its great numbers. Gonyaulax catenel­la is known to have been the cause of disastrous poisoning in man. Several kinds of shellfish along the Pacific coast feed on them, thus making the shellfish poisonous for human consumption. In 1941 there were 346 cases of poisoning with 24 deaths. Since 1941 state laws forbid the gathering of shellfish during the season of the red waters. Experiments have shown the toxin (an alkaloid) to be about ten times as potent as strychnine, which is used for poisoning mice.

When God shifts the great tectonic plates, all the cracks on the ocean floors shown in figure 3 will open to produce long chains of oceanic eruptions as pictured in figure 5. As the magma begins to heat the oceans and seas of the world, many varieties of dinoflagellate will begin to reproduce at fantastic rates. As the heating spreads, the dinoflagellate will spread, both by formation and transportation by the currents of oceans and seas of the world. The sea will be turned red by the oxida­tion and organism secretions, both creations of God. The same God, who created the process of oxidation and all organisms, has also created the mechanism to slowly spread the blood-red shroud of poison across the oceans and seas of the world—the currents of the “seven seas” shown in figure 5A. By the time the last drop of the second vial has been poured out, all aquatic life in the oceans and seas will have been destroyed by this shield of death carried by the currents that daily move life through them.

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).

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).

The great red shield of death is formed and spreads across one-third of the sea as the trumpet sounds. The second trumpet begins the event and the second vial closes it. By the time the last drop of the vial has fallen, the ocean current spread of both organic and inorganic takers of life will have rendered the sea to belike the blood of a dead man. A dead man’s blood will not support life. The trumpets and vials do not occur separately from one another in a chronological sense. The first trumpet announces the beginning of event one, and the last drop of the first vial closes it. This sequence is true throughout all seven trumpets and vials.

The preceding chapters have continually added to the premise that God will destroy sinful mankind with the earth. This chapter, and those which follow, will continue to build upon that premise. The major contention of this premise is that God will move the massive tectonic plates shown in figure 3 approximately one to two feet during the last three and one-half years of the Tribulation Period. It is this destroying with the earth that will create the horrifying scenes described in Isaiah 29:6 and Luke 21:25.

Isaiah 29:6 – Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

Luke 21:25 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring,

 In Luke 21:25 the word translated wave is saiou, which means a particular type of wave. It means a wave that breaks on the shoreline, a wave of the surf. The nations of the world will be in great perplexity because of the roaring sound of the sea and surf. It is this phenomenon of sea and surf that will destroy one-third of the world’s shipping.

The claim has been made that unbelievably violent earth­quake and volcanic activity will be occurring along the area indicated by dashed lines of figure 3 during the last half of the Tribulation Period. Please note that most of these great cracks in the earth’s crust lie on the ocean and sea floors of the world. If I am correct about the earthquake and volcanic activity along these cracks, then I am positive that what I am about to describe will definitely occur.

There are many types of waves that exist on the ocean sur­face. The most common being those induced by the winds and tides of the earth. But the most horrifying of all waves that pound the shorelines of the world is not produced by wind or tide; it is the unbelievable tsunami produced by earthquake and volcanic eruption on the seafloor.

Tsunamis are not “tidal waves. They are caused by undersea earthquakes or volcanoes and have killed millions of people down through the ages. Tsunami is the Japanese word for “storm wave.” The Alaska earthquake of 1964 produced the tsunami wave pattern shown in figure 6. As you can observe from the figure, it only took the tsunami four hours to move from the epicenter to Hawaii. Tsunami travel as fast as some jet aircraft. Tsunami can now be predicted so that appalling death tolls of yesteryear can be avoided. A network of seismic warning stations now functions across the Pacific Ocean to give early warning of an approaching tsunami.

As you can observe on the lower half of figure 6, a tsunami is generated when an undersea earthquake or volcanic eruption causes a sudden downward movement of an earth block. The downward displacement of water above the block produces not a surface wave, but rather a wave which moves horizontally outward through the water from the bottom to the top.

Tsunami cross the ocean as long low waves which seagoing vessels may not even notice but, as you may observe in figure 7, when the tsunami approaches the shoreline the energy of the wave is con­fined in shallower and shallower water. Tsunamis have been known to rise to heights in excess of two hundred fifty feet. The increase in tsunami occurrences, during the past 190 years, is made evident in figure 8. When a tsunami crashes against a coastline it destroys everything in its path, often up to half a mile inland.

Shipping on the open sea is virtually unaffected by a tsunami, but woe unto the ship that is caught in port. There is not a ship built which can withstand the force of a full blown tsunami as it roars into port. In one day the old city of Lisbon and all the ships in port were destroyed by a wall of water that washed half a mile inland.

During the last three and one-half years of the Tribulation Period most of the coastal cities of the world and the ships in port will be completely destroyed by tsunami after tsunami. This is what will produce much of the distress and perplexity among the nations of the world. Now, how does all this fit in with Revelation 8:9 regarding John’s statement: “and the third part of the ships were destroyed?”

At any given time approximately two-thirds of the world’s shipping is “under way” on the open sea, and one-third is in port or dry dock. The two-thirds on the open sea will be spared, and the one-third in port will be destroyed by tsunami during the sounding of the second trumpet.

The following Scriptures leave little doubt that God has con­trol of the sea and the destructive forces of its waves. Those who “do business in great waters” will lose one-third of their busi­ness on the sounding of the second trump.

Psalm 89.9 – Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them

Isaiah 51:15 – But I am the Lord thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The Lord of hosts is his name.

Psalm 107:23-25 – They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; [24] These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. [25] For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

The earth is God’s creation and all the things thereof. God does not need man’s weaponry or technology to fulfill His prophecies. God has already made all the elements necessary to destroy man, and He has molded them into forms, shapes, com­pounds and processes capable of fulfilling His revelation of end-time events. I know that a great war will occur. Many men will die in that war. Bullets and other weaponry will kill many of them; but that will be only a few compared to the earthquake, fire and brimstone toll exacted by the force of Almighty God upon sinful mankind. For too long biblical expositors have been concentrating on a single tree (man’s weaponry and technology) as the fulfillment of Revelation prophecies. In so doing, they have overlooked the forest of God’s creation, the earth’s natural destructive forces.

Man will not destroy himself in a nuclear holocaust of his own making. If you desire to be frightened by such a possibili­ty, be my guest and join the crowd. I do not fear the armies with thermonuclear arsenals. May I remind you whom you should fear with this closing passage of Scripture.

Luke 12:4,5 – And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. [5] But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

7 Trumpets Placement in Regard to Tribulation Period

Trumpet 3

We now live in the days of Seal 5 in the “beginning of sorrows” waiting for Seal 6 to begin the Tribulation period.  I believe Seal 6 will open at some point in time after President Obama is no longer President, and that it represents a preview of the Tribulation Period from Seal 6 to Vial 7 in chronological order. Seal 6 gives a general version of the entire Tribulation Period.  What follows Seal 6 is a specific description of each individual seal, trumpet, or vial event through Vial 7.  I have taught this for almost 40 years.  I included it the Chapter 11 of my second book, “Tectonic Triad.”  It has followed the pattern I indicated, and I am now refining it this current series because I now understand it better than I did 40 years ago.

Tectonic Chaos – Chapter 12 – A Poisonous Visitor

Tectonic Chaos was written in 1976 and published in 1978

The Figures referred to in this chapter are located under “Birth Pangs” on our web site menu, and may be viewed by clicking on “Birth Pang Archive Figures” after clicking on “Birth Pangs.”

Revelation 8:10,11 – 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; [11] 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.

In Revelation 8:7-9, John has viewed the land and sea events described previously in Chapters 2, 4, 5, and 6.  Now his view is shifted upward where he observes a great star falling from heaven.  The word used for star is “aster.”  It can mean any one of three different things.  It can be a navigational star in the heavens such as Polaris, the North Star – or a “shooting” star, better known as a meteor – or a comet.  Sometimes meteors and comets are lumped together as “asteroids” by various types of commentators, but there is a considerable difference between a meteor and a comet.   Since all the fixed stars in our universe (except for the sun) are millions to billions of light years from our planet and, as such, eliminate themselves from consideration as candidates for John’s Wormwood, this leaves us with only two candidates – a meteor or a comet.  In order to select between these two it is necessary to carefully examine John’s description of the characteristics of Wormwood.

Using John’s description, the following statements concerning Wormwood cannot be easily refuted:  (1) It burned like a lamp, and the Hebrew lamp had a fuel supply that kept it burning.  (2) It fell upon the third part of the earth’s water surface, and yet John did not so much as mention a quiver in the earth’s crust as it struck.  He mentions earthquakes time after time throughout the Book of Revelation, but does not mention one occurring as Wormwood strikes the earth.  (3) Whatever Wormwood is, it dissolves in water, because the water becomes Wormwood.  (4) When it dissolves in man’s water supply it gives the water a bitter taste, and it causes many who drink the water to die.

When a “shooting star” is outside the earth’s atmosphere it is called a meteoroid.  When it enters the earth’s atmosphere it is called a meteor.  And, if it is large enough to eventually strike the earth’s surface, before burning into ashes, the solid portion that remains is identified as a meteorite.  For simplicity I will refer to all three phases as “shooting stars” to avoid confusion. Shooting stars are made of nickel, iron, and/or stone.  Now, let us reason together as to why Wormwood cannot be a shooting star by comparing it with John’s Revelation description.

1) A shooting star does not burn like a Hebrew lamp.  It does not have a continuous fuel supply.  Being a solid it burns out very quickly in a matter of seconds to minutes.

2)  If a shooting star large enough to strike one-third of the earth was to make such a contact, the impact of such a solid object would jar the earth to its very foundations, but John reports no such shaking in his vision.

Nickel, iron, and stone do not dissolve in water, but the water is said to become Wormwood.

3) Nickel, iron, and stone do not give water a bitter taste, nor or they poisonous.  During the course of man’s recorded history, thousands of shooting stars have fallen into local water sources, and yet there has never been a validated report of poisoning recorded.

One might argue at this point that God could make a shooting star with a continuous fuel supply, which melted instead of burned, dissolved in water, made water taste bitter, and was poisonous to mankind.  He doesn’t have to make one, because he made many heavenly bodies long ago that do all of these things – we call them comets.  The “aster” of Revelation 8:10 is one of God’s trillions of comets.  Why am I so confident that Wormwood is a comet?  My reasons are as follows:

1) A comet has a continuous fuel supply.  As it approaches the sun its fuel supply begins to be released by sublimation, and it then moves through the heavens like a great, ever burning lamp.

2) If a comet entered the earth’s atmosphere it would not burn to ashes, for a comet is composed largely of ice.  It would not burn, but would melt by sublimation, and eventually fall as liquid, and a super thick cloud, upon one-third of man’s water supply.  As the ice melted from a solid into a super thick glob of vapor and liquid, the trillions of pieces of nickel, iron, and stone, embedded in the ice, would be released.  The super thick cloud of liquid and vapor would decelerate in his descent toward the earth, but the released solids, being heavier, would be subject to greater gravitation pull, and would proceed to the earth in advance of the cloud, burning in the atmosphere as shooting stars.  To an observer on the earth it would appear that all the stars of heaven were falling to earth in advance of the cloud that would eventually settle on one-third of man’s water supply. “But in those days after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, [25] And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.” (Mark 13:24,25)

3) As the comet passed through the earth’s atmosphere during its melting process, it would release methyl cyanide, hydrogen cyanide, and a wide range of cyanogenic poisons, all of which are 100 percent water soluble and have a bitter taste.

4) Methyl cyanide, hydrogen cyanide, and cyanogenic gases are extremely toxic, and many would die of the poisoning effects.

Comets originate from a region between our solar system and the nearest stars.  There are trillions of comets in this great comet cloud.  There appears to be a virtually endless supply of them, for each year new comets are discovered and others go out of existence, victims of the shattering effects of the sun.  When earth passes through the old path of a comet, the small solid particles, which melted off the outer veneer of its icy surface, are intercepted, and meteor showers are produced in our atmosphere.  These showers occasionally exhibit as many as a thousand shooting stars per minute falling through the earth’s atmosphere.

A comet is one of God’s strangest creations.  There is nothing quite like it.  A comet nucleus is made of solid ice, but it is actually ice made of gases that solidified in the unbelievable coldness of outer space.  As the ice ball nucleus approaches the sun, its outer surface begins to pass directly from solid ice to a gas by sublimation, and we earthlings begin to observe its long, gaseous, lamp like tail.  A Hebrew lamp, because they did not refine the olive oil, put out a gray trail of smoke when it burned. Figure 18 illustrates how the comet’s tail always points away from the sun because of the sun’s solar winds.

The black specks on the surface of the comet in figure 17 are small pieces of nickel, iron, and stone that become embedded in the outer layer of ice by contact as the comet makes its long elliptical orbit around the sun and our solar system.  These pieces of nickel, iron, and stone are released into its tail along the comet’s path when the sun’s rays begin to melt the comet, as illustrated in figure 18.  Sometimes the gaseous tail of a comet has been observed to extend out to 150 million miles from its nucleus, and over this great distance a trail of small, solid pieces of space debris is laid down in space.  Every year, particularly during the late fall and early winter, the earth passes through several comet tails of the past, and dramatic shooting star displays are visible in our atmosphere.

The solid chunk of ice nucleus varies in size, some being less than 20 miles across, while other icy centers are several thousand miles in diameter.  When the nucleus comes within the warming rays of the sun it begins to melt, and this produces the coma and tail shown in figure 19.  The icy nucleus is composed of hydrogen, helium, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen gases in a solid icy state.  As the ultraviolet rays of the sun strike this combination of elemental gases, several compounds are produced.  Among these gases are methyl cyanide, hydrogen cyanide, and a whole range of cyanogenic poisons.  When Russian, Italian, and Japanese satellites went in, around, and over the coma and nucleus of Halley’s Comet in 1986, scientists were shocked by the very heavy concentrations of cyanogenic gases that were discovered.  The same heavy concentrations have also been observed in all probes of comets since 1986.

I do not know which of the trillions of comets God will select to be Wormwood, but I am certain that Wormwood is a comet.  When Wormwood enters the earth’s atmosphere it will not burn, it will melt.  And, as it goes directly from a solid to a gas, it will release into the earth’s atmospheric the aforementioned deadly gases of figure 19.  Figure 20 pictures another creation of God described in Ecclesiastes 1:7 – “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.”

This creation of God, known as the Hydrological Cycle, is the cycle into which the 100 percent water soluble, poisonous gases of figure 21 will be released.  God has so designed the earth’s atmosphere that the sun’s rays cause exposed water surfaces to be turned into a rising gas called water vapor.  As the water vapor is set free from its liquid state by evaporation, it rises and cools at the rate of 1 degree centigrade for every 100 meters it is lifted.  Continued lifting produces a visible gas structure by condensation, which we call a cloud.  Further lifting causes the water vapor to condense on microscopic floating particles in the air and, if they grow heavy enough, they fall to the earth as precipitation.  God’s comet gases will readily mix with God’s water vapor in God’s hydrological system to fall as God’s deadly precipitation on one-third of the water supply God made for man.  The things of God’s creation will be used to destroy most of what represents God’s most complex creation – mankind.  Once again, I make my continuously repetitious point:  God will destroy most of mankind with His creation, not with the creations of mankind.
