The Great Day of the Lord,
Part 1: The 6th Seal
(22 May 2015 – 21 December 2015)
How do Revelation’s trumpets and bowls differ in meaning?
Why is God so angry that He begins the Apocalypse by burning off a third the world’s plant life?
Is the earth soon due for collision with a swarm of asteroids?
Thirteen days of the Greatest Earthquake Ever!
The Sixth Seal, The Road to Armageddon
The 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse designates the last seven months as the 12th Period as spanning from 22 May to 21 December 2015, which is the end of the Great Apocalypse.
The date of 22 May 2015 closely coincides with the second major Jewish feast day, the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot) or Pentecost. We count 64 days from then to arrive at 25 July 2015, which is the 9 th of Av. This date commemorates the destruction of both previous Jewish temples. When we see a number 64, we should immediately recognize it as a gear in the World Cuckoo Clock. This numeric relationship gives us confidence that we picked the right date and confirms the dating of the Apocalypse. (Later chapters will explain more.)
40 Days Later
When we add 40 days to July 25th, we reach 4 September 2015, which is the end of the Second Woe. I predict that the greatest earthquake ever to occur in the history of mankind will take place on this day. I checked the tabulation of this date against the normal seasonal starting and ending dates for migrating flocks of birds, which the Bible mentions in prophecy. Later in this chapter I will explain how I did this in detail.
The computation of 4 September 2015 also overlays with the Hebrew number system. The number 40 (Mem) is interpreted to mean “trial, pain and/or in the time dimension of this age” (Daleth). During these 40 days, the world will see thousands of Jews slaughtered in a final orgy of “ethnic cleansing” that will exceed even the Nazis’ demented fanaticism, but this last attempt to destroy all of the Jewish people will also fail in the end due to God’s divine intervention.
In this Chapter we will describe the seven trumpets and seven bowls of God's wrath that climax with a gigantic earthquake. This earthquake will be on the same magnitude as when the “depths of the earth” broke open to flood the planet in Noah’s day. The table overlay indicates that the entire world system will come to an end on 17 September 2015, which ends the Mini-Apocalypse. Satan will be stripped of his influence and dominion over human society to be bound powerless in the dark depths of the underworld. All of the other fallen angels will also be removed from activity in the earthly dimension. They will lose their sway over humanity and be cast separately into the Lake of Fire to painfully and permanently terminate their final existence in the doom of solitary oblivion.
Although the Great Apocalypse officially ends on the 21 December 2015 solstice date, Scripture reveals that the time of sufferings would be cut short in order to save extra people from dying. That is why the directly inflicted horrors of the Mini-Apocalypse cease on 17 September and not on 21 December 2015.
Six years prior to that day EU/UN made a seven-year agreement with representatives of both the Israelis and the surrounding Arab nations to conclude a “permanent peace” in the region. NATO’s military superiority had left most of the Islamic countries with no choice but to sign the peace agreement, but they did not really agree with the permission to build the Temple next to their holy place, the Dome of the Rock. They had been forced to accept it as part of the Antichrist’s peace program. Back in 2009 (from the perspective of 2015) the Palestinian Arabs were forced to accept the new Temple against their will.
This agreement will be broken in 2012. For awhile it will seem that “Allah” and the momentum of the war will be on the side of Islam. Probably under the leadership of a mehdi, the Islamic messiah, many Arab nations will unit to invade Israel and reclaim the Haram (Temple Mount) in Jerusalem as their own. Antichrist will intercede to honor Europe’s commitments to the Mideast Peace Treaty. Many nations will be conquered, but not all. (Daniel 11:40-43)
Three years later in 2015, the Muslims will be a vital part of a huge army assembled at Armageddon to fight against Jerusalem. At least their advance guard will overrun the Jewish defense perimeter around Jerusalem. With hatred at a boiling point these Arab forces will attempt to clean the holy “Haram” with its Al Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock, as well as Jerusalem, of all infidels and Jews once and for all. Jacob’s trouble is in full bloom. Forty days later we come to another junction as the battle rages on for the extermination of all Jews wherever they are found around the world.
Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the Lord is coming, it is near—a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness spread upon the mountains a great and powerful army comes; their like has never been from of old, nor will be again after the in ages to come.
Fire devours in front of them, and behind them a flame burns.
Before them the land is like the Garden of Eden, but after them a desolate wilderness and nothing escapes them.
They have the appearance of horses, and like war-horses they charge. As with the rumbling of chariots, they leap on the tops of the mountains, like the crackling of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a powerful army drawn up for battle. (Joel 2:1-5 NRSV)
The Islamic countries, enraged over the destruction of their holy places, will unite with Russian, Chinese and other Asian armies to march toward Jerusalem for the final strike against European confederacy occupying Israel at that time. The whole world will send armies to meet for a gigantic showdown. The control of oil reserves, the centuries-old hatred against the Jews and the threat to the very existence of Islam will drive them blindly to exterminate the infidels:
The sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up in order to prepare the way for the kings from the east. And I saw three foul spirits like frogs coming from the mouth of the dragon, from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the false prophet.
These are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle on the great day of God the Almighty. (“See, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and is clothed, not going about naked and exposed to shame.”) And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. (Revelation 16:12-16 NRSV)
As the Daleth dimension part of the Second Woe, all of the armies of the world will gather north of Israel at Armageddon to destroy the western capitalistic system based on excessive greed that has controlled the world for centuries. The four death angels of the Heh dimension are part of this woe as described in Chapter 5. Powerful forces of animosity and deeply ingrained hatred will move people from all over the world toward this one place. The largest armored tank formation ever assembled on earth will be followed by two hundred million infantrymen with additional vehicles and military support supplies.
It will be an awesome, unimaginable spectacle that Joel described as a plague of locusts. There will be so many soldiers that they will be able to march straight ahead, shoulder-to-shoulder, not needing to turn to the right or to the left in order to find the last remaining Jews to kill. Even going through windows not miss anyone, and climbing walls to prevent a getaway. Nothing will escape their path of destruction.
For a nation has invaded my land, powerful and innumerable; its teeth are lions’ teeth, and it has the fangs of a lioness. It has laid waste my vines, and splintered my fig trees; it has stripped off their bark and thrown it down; their branches have turned white. (Joel 1:6-7 NRSV)
Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is near, and as destruction from the Almighty it comes. Is not the food cut off before our eyes? (Joel 1:15-16 NRSV)
To you, O Lord , I cry. For fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness and flames have burned all the trees of the field. Even the wild animals cry to you because the watercourses are dried up, and fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness. (Joel 1:19-20 NRSV)
Before them peoples are in anguish, all faces grow pale. Like warriors they charge, like soldiers they scale the wall.
Each keeps to its own course, they do not swerve from their paths. They do not jostle one another, each keeps to its own track; they burst through the weapons and are not halted.
They leap upon the city, they run upon the walls; they climb up into the houses, they enter through the windows like a thief.
The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. (Joel 2:6-10 NRSV)
The Bible is a terrible mirror reflecting so much detail. These descriptive words written thousands of years ago are today materialized in our modern weapons and machines of war.
And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. (Revelation 16:16 NRSV)
The number of the troops of cavalry was two hundred million; I heard their number. And this was how I saw the horses in my vision: the riders wore breastplates the color of fire and of sapphire and of sulfur; the heads of the horses were like lions' heads, and fire and smoke and sulfur came out of their mouths.
By these three plagues a third of humankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they inflict harm.
The rest of humankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands or give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their fornication or their thefts. (Revelation 9:16-21 NRSV)
There is no doubt in my mind that these verses describe high tech rocket propelled tanks and other powerful killing machines not yet revealed to the public.
When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near. Then those in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those inside the city must leave it, and those out in the country must not enter it; for these are days of vengeance, as a fulfillment of all that is written.
Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing infants in those days! For there will be great distress on the earth and wrath against this people; they will fall by the edge of the sword and be taken away as captives among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. (Luke 21:20-24 NRSV)
This huge army advances toward Jerusalem leaving desolation behind them like a dessert void of all life with only one purpose, to swallow up all of Israel and make a final end to the descendants of Jacob. But God’s answer is:
I will remove the northern army far from you, and drive it into a parched and desolate land, its front into the eastern sea, and its rear into the western sea; its stench and foul smell will rise up. Surely he has done great things! (Joel 2:20 NRSV)
You shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I, the Lord, am your God and there is no other. And my people shall never again be put to shame. (Joel 2:27 NRSV)
Judgment in the Valley of Jehoshaphat:
For then, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will enter into judgment with them there, on account of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations. They have divided my land, and cast lots for my people, and traded boys for prostitutes, and sold girls for wine, and drunk it down. (Joel 3:1-3 NRSV)
Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare war, stir up the warriors. Let all the soldiers draw near, let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weakling say, “I am a warrior.”
Come quickly, all you nations all around, gather yourselves there. Bring down your warriors, O Lord. Let the nations rouse themselves, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the neighboring nations.
Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. The Lord roars from Zion, and utters his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shake.
But the Lord is a refuge for his people, a stronghold for the people of Israel. Egypt shall become a desolation and Edom a desolate wilderness, because of the violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they have shed innocent blood.
But Judah shall be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem to all generations. I will avenge their blood, and I will not clear the guilty, for the Lord dwells in Zion. (Joel 3:9:21 NRSV)
In the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, the number twelve (12) corresponds to “Perfect Government.” The 12th Period of the Apocalypse is the time when God's wrath will be poured out. It will start with a cosmic firecracker display; it will end with a big bang of immense proportion that will engulf the entire globe. (Revelation 8:8)
While preparation begins in Heaven for one more major event to be announced a global war of incomprehensible magnitude will break out on earth. Russia and China, allied with many Islamic nations, will gather against the European Union and its allies, America and Canada, to contest with the West for global dominance. Along with the military defeat of Europe, Islamic nations will want to pursue their ancient dream of establishing and spreading their vision of religious theocracy everywhere.
God's Word has this to say about the nations' final conflicts with one another:
But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be handed over to the saints, the people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey Hi m. (Daniel 7:26-27)
Satan and his followers will know that their time is at an end:
I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one "like a son of man" with a crown of gold on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to Him who was sitting on the cloud, "Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe." So He who was seated on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
Another angel came out of the temple in Heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, "Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth's vine, because its grapes are ripe." The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God's wrath. (Revelation 14:14-19)
This period overlays the Jewish month of Tishri. The first of Tishri's holidays is Rosh Hashanah, a day of blowing trumpets. It is followed by the fast of Atonement or Yom Kippur and ends with the great harvest festival of Booths or Sukkoth, which is celebrated for seven days and includes the olive and grape harvests among other fall crops. Hoshannah Rabba is the last, eighth day of assembly that follows the seventh day of Sukkoth.
Rosh Hashanah, 1 Tishri, recalls the Creation and begins a traditional ten day period of soul-searching and turning towards God and away from sin. These “Ten Days of Awe” end with Atonement or Yom Kippur. Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the civil year; it is the day when the number of the year count goes up. Historically, the kings of Israel and Judah began to count the years of their reign from the first Rosh Hashanah after their crowning.
The most prominent feature of 1 Tishri is the multiple blowing of the mysterious sounding shofar or ram’s horn trumpet. In ancient Israel trumpets were blown for several reasons: a call to prayer and/or assembly; a warning of enemy attack; the marking of holy time, or the coming of a king. On Atonement (Yom Kippur) the ten days of judgment ended and a special double sacrifice was made. (Leviticus 16)
The Feast of Booths (Sukkoth) was a joyous festival celebrating Israel’s largest harvest time. Traditional Jewish observance of this festival recalls Israel’s Exodus from Egypt. Many Messianic Jewish believers see this celebration of dwelling in humble, temporary shacks as a reminder of when Jesus, the Son of God, dwelt among us in the flesh. It also looks forward in time to help us understand key events that will take place at the end of the Apocalypse. God will command the angelic forces to take out their sickles and harvest both the evil and the righteous. (Isaiah 24:1-23; Matthew 24:31) Finally, the Feast of Booths foreshadows the millennial harvest of souls under Messiah’s rule. (Zechariah 14:16-21)
Sukkoth is followed by Hoshannah Rabba, which anticipates the fall rains with prayer and rejoicing. These winter rains replenished Israel’s water supply after the long hot summer. The steady rains fill the dry river beds, which begin to flow with life-giving water. On this last day of the feast Jesus stood in the Temple and called out to all who thirst for the waters of eternal life to come to Him for salvation:
If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, “From his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:37)
Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go, pour out the seven bowls of God's wrath on the eart h." (Revelation 16: 1)
And I saw the seven angels who stand before God and to them were given seven trumpets. (Revelation 8:2)
The bowls and trumpets referred to here represent the events of the Apocalypse. Humankind will be confronted with God's authority and judged for their willful rebellion. Many will be unrepentant to the very end; they will not turn from their wickedness even in the face of God’s clear intervention of punishing justice. So God will withdraw His divine protection, which has shielded the earth from so many dangerous encounters such as asteroids from outer space.
As we come to these last climatic events on earth, we will notice that Revelation’s various chapters describe the same events as seen from different perspectives. For example, you will read about seven trumpets describing events and seven bowls that seem to describe the same or related events. In other cases events unfold in a direction that seem to develop in reverse order as compared to similar events in other chapters.
At first I was very confused, and so I asked the Lord, “Please tell me what is going on here.” I am not a scholar, and many books have been written about Revelation. Much of what I read seems to be interpreted differently by the various authors. My intention is not to write on every aspect of this fascinating book but to focus on putting a few key events in their chronological context in order to guide the reader into further study.
I love the Lord who gave me the answer within hours.
First, it must have been quite a bewildering job for John to be on “the other side” in the Heh dimension when he was told, “Write down what you see.” Let’s imagine that we are standing with John in a round 360 degree movie theater. John, as an observer, was looking at it from several different angles at the same time if possible. Perhaps, he first heard something coming from behind him, so he looked back to where all the sounds came from. Then his attention was drawn first to one side and then another, until he finally made it to the front. So from these various vantage points, he saw things in contra sted perspectives.
In addition to having to try to keep track of all that was happening around him, John may have noticed that the scenes came in different order from either of the two dimensions, Heh and Daleth. These passed by him simultaneously - one on the right side and the other on the left, only to merge together at the rear as a whole again. Through this perspective in the round, he could sense the difference in real time and observe what would be happening in the heavenly dimension by quickly looking at the other side and noticing the effect on earth.
From our perspective of not being in the movie, it appears that Revelation’s pages are mixed up. Even with today’s modern way of technology, I do not think we could have done a better job than John did of reporting multiple actions from two dimensions simultaneously taking place all around us. This is why the Hebrew Alphabet Number System is so important. It is the only tool I know that can be used to reassemble what John was trying to report in sequence. Unfortunately, this seeming mix-up of Revelation’s pages has caused some major disagreement among theologians because they did not know about how to apply this obscure Hebrew matrix of information to bring some order to the Bible’s last and perhaps, most controversial book.
In fact, I first believed that the sequence of John’s writings might have been mixed up at some point in time since ancient scrolls did not contain any page numbers. I have been told that punctuation and breaks in the text are not readily recognized in most ancient documents either, so the texts flow undivided. Only in English or other modern translations do scholars divide the ancient sources of Scripture up into paragraphs and chapters for better understanding.
This characteristic of ancient documents might account for the same events being described in different chapters. Another area of confusion is the actors. There seem to be different sets of angelic announcers: one appears with trumpets to blow while the other pours out bowls.
The trumpet blower projects what is about to happen in a three dimensional visual dimension – like computer graphics. It is a form of speech but on a higher level. Television comes close to it. The other angel pours different bowls out over the earth so that the previously declared judgments or events announced by the trumpet blower now become reality on earth. When the bowls are poured out, the words of God become real events that take place in the natural dimension (Daleth) of our experience on earth. Thus, there seems to be multiple perspectives of the same set of events. Of course, the symbolically colorful language used also needs to be placed in the proper historic and cultural context.
A third variance I have noticed is that sometimes the announcement is made in the order of importance instead of in order of chronological development, which means that the actual events on earth may even take place in reversed order from their appearance in the text. Perhaps the reason is because the events announced on a heavenly stage must actually take place on the stage of material time – the Daleth dimension, which is only a mirror image of Heaven. As an example, when the announcement of Jesus coming in splendor is made, He is the main feature and other events become secondary like the great earthquake, which destroys armies and results in lots of dead bodies that must be eaten by the birds of prey. (Revelation 19:11, 17-19)
Lastly, I noticed another parallel connection between the trumpets and bowls. The trumpet announces the “cause” of the coming woe, and the corresponding bowl describes the “effects” of the woe as it impacts the earth environment.
With these points in mind, hopefully we will now be able to follow the correct chronological sequence in dating the events of the Apocalypse.
In the 4 th month of the 12th Period the 1st trumpet announces when the 1st bowl is emptied. The sounding of the first trumpet will send red-hot hailstones and meteors plunging through our atmosphere. They will ignite wildfires worldwide. A third of all shrubs and trees and most grassy areas on earth will be destroyed. Hailstones, weighing up to one hundred pounds, will be mixed with a slimy concoction that looks like blood to bombard the earth from space.
Like radiation, the resulting contamination will cause painful, ugly sores (the first bowl). The debris from this outpouring will affect plant and animal life alike.
Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them. The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. (Revelation 8:6- 7)
The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. (Revelation 16:2)
The seven trumpets announcing the seven bowls of the Apocalypse will be God's answer to the evil schemes of humanity against His creation on earth. The first bowl will pour out thousands of asteroid fragments, which will bombard the earth and destroy one-third of all plant life.
Aligning these events with the global judgment of Noah's Flood, I can draw a parallel. Why does God begin the Apocalypse by burning off a third the world’s plant life? Because it is necessary to purify a contaminated planet.
Since the introduction of (GMOs) Genetically Modified Organisms, the only correction or remedy possible is by burning. God will burn up the mutated and genetically modified organisms. GMOs endanger the biological ecology of the environment to the point that most of the natural insect, plant and animal life forms are being pushed towards extinction. To put prophecy into perspective, I can see North America immersed in gigantic 1000 mile long firestorm of unbelievable proportions as the means to purifying this continental hotbed of genetic plant, animal and soil contamination. Let me give you an example of why my prediction is the only hope for humanity.
The Round Valley News covered a story of a Canadian farmer that is typical of the Canadian and American Midwest. His third generation ranch was totally contaminated by GMO (Genetic Modified Organism) genes due to cross-pollination from neighboring fields. This gene pollution put him out of business. The transfer of these super genes by pollen in wind or animals is unavoidable. Soon it won’t be possible to find GMO-free canola plants in North America. If you want to know more about this subject, then read, What is Genetically Modified Food by Martha Herbert, MD.
Farmers have been hit from two sides. First, GMO crops remain difficult to sell in Europe, which has reduced the number of potential buyers even for those who voluntarily switched. Secondly, the agribusiness industry has l ured farmers with the sales pitch that using GMO seed wil l save them money and labor because they use less pesticides and herbicides, so the farmers switched. In short, the farmers were promised higher yields at less cost; however, reports are now coming in of a 10-50% decline in GMO canola harvest yields after only three years of using the GMO seeds. How did that happen?
The genetic modifications created a super strain of canola plants with genetically built-in resistance to pesticides and herbicides. The idea was that these chemicals could be used to eliminate weeds and pests without hurting the canola plants. As ever higher concentrations of these dangerous chemicals were applied, “Nature” responded by producing a very prolific assemblage of super weeds that can no longer be killed with herbicide. Consequently, these weeds are expanding very quickly over very large areas.
Meanwhile, a small number of gigantic conglomerates have bought up most of the world’s seed companies thus eliminating competitive alternatives and giving them control of the seed market. These farmers are now forced to confront the reality that these genetic changes are irreversible, their businesses are declining, and they have no options other than to continue to work with the producers of GMO seeds and wait for the next generation of genetic manipulation.
Besides being burdened by growing populations of poor citizens, many third world farmers are being put out of business. Pushed to adopt western agricultural methods in order to compete globally, third world countries in Africa and Asia, like Nigeria, India or Bangladesh are being severely affected, too. Whenever a few large farmers plant GMO seed, it spreads into the fields of the many small farmers that make up the backbone of third world agriculture. The transfer of pollen carrying these super genes by wind or animals is unavoidable.
To make matters worse, some companies hire aggressive “gene police” to defend the company’s patents by vigorously prosecuting farmers in court if even one genetically modified plant is found on their acres. Poor farmers, who cannot pay lawyer fees, are thus compelled by circumstances beyond their control to pay licensee fees, which push many of them into bankruptcy.
The first meteor storm will bring huge asteroids that will plunge into the ocean destroying many ships. A third of all sea life will perish:
The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8-9)
The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead man, and every living thing in the sea died. (Revelation 16:3)
The Scriptures compare this event to the catastrophic rending of the earth in Noah's time:
Immediately after the distress of those days "the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken ." (Matthew 24:29)
Many scientists consider these biblical predictions farfetched. The wise men before the Flood undoubtedly thought likewise . . . before they perished:
First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, "Where is this ‘coming' He promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."
But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. (2Peter 3:3-7)
The weekly newsmagazine Science News published an article entitled "It's Raining Stardust: Spacecraft Measures Record Amount of Stellar Debris." The author, Ron Cowen, states that "stardust is sneaking into our solar system at three times the rate that it was just six years ago. Moreover, the influx of dust could triple again by the end of 2010." This dust seems to be a forerunner of the future storm of asteroids and comets prophesied in Revelation.
Stardust investigator Donald E. Brownlee of the University of Washington in Seattle is quoted in this article as saying, "People often think of dust as trivial, but it's a major character in the solar system and throughout the galaxy." Brownlee adds, "Not only does dust absorb starlight, reradiating it as heat, it ferries such elements as iron, carbon, and silicon into the solar system."
Scientists have catalogued 15,000 asteroids in our solar system. Some are as large as fifty kilometers across. According to technical calculations, if one of these asteroids were to hit the earth, the impact would result in tsunami tidal waves and earthquakes large enough to destroy thousands of cities.
Popular Science magazine's September 2003 issue contained an article entitled "Incoming!" The author states, "The killer-asteroid movies are almost forgotten, but the threat is real and unquantified."
Its name is 1950DA, it's the size of a small mountain, and it's headed for earth. According to one grim scenario, 1950DA will hit its target—most likely water, since there is more water than land on our planet—and plunge to the seabed in a fraction of a second. When the asteroid meets the ocean floor, it will explode, excavating a crater 11 miles wide. A column of water and debris will shoot a few miles into the sky—to the height of a low-flying jetliner. Then skyscraper-high walls of water will head for shore, eventually breaking in the shallows and flooding the coast. The rest you know if you saw the 1998 asteroid movie Deep Impact.
Worse things may already have happened: One theory credits an 11-kilometer-wide asteroid with roasting dinosaurs alive 65 million years ago. (My own theory is that it happened during Noah's Flood in 2288 bc. See Chapter 4 of Apocalypse Prophesied). The enormous impact sent debris flying back into space—some of it halfway to the Moon.
When the asteroid bits reentered the atmosphere, the heat that was generated flash-baked plant and animal life. 1950DA is minuscule by comparison, though even a still smaller asteroid could take out an entire city with a direct hit. And make no mistake, there are plenty of space rocks out there; one missed the earth by only 75,000 miles in June 2002—and wasn't spotted until it had whizzed by.
According to this article, "Of the 600-plus large NEOs [Near Earth Objects] tracked thus far, only 1950DA poses any threat at all." In addition, 1950DA is estimated at a 300-to-1 long shot for actually striking the planet and doing the damage in the scenario above. "But at this stage of the search, there are an estimated 400 potential global killers left to find, not to mention over a million hard-to-spot smaller asteroids capable of regional destruction."
Immediately following the destructive impacts from a widespread meteor shower, a mammoth mountain-sized asteroid will smash into the earth, followed again by many smaller asteroids as explained previously. Note the sequence of events described in the magazine report are identical to what the Bible describes as the 2 nd bowl followed by the 3rd and 4th. The debris from all of these asteroids will cover the planet’s lakes, reservoirs and rivers. It will contaminate one-third of the fresh water making it undrinkable .
The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water—the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter. (Revelation 8:10-11)
The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. Then I heard the angel in charge of the waters say: "You are just in these judgments, you who are and who were, the Holy One, because you have so judged; for they have shed the blood of your saints and prophets, and you have given them blood to drink as they deserve."
And I heard the altar respond: "Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments." (Revelation 16:4- 7)
There will be so much cosmic dust and impact debris in the atmosphere that the earth’s daylight and moonlight will be dimmed by one third. At the same time huge explosions will occur on the surface of the sun in the most spectacular and frightening cosmic event in history. All communication signals will be shut down. Satellites will be knocked out of orbit either crashing toward earth or breaking away into outer space. Temperatures will soar over a hundred degrees Fahrenheit, and there will be almost no suitable drinking water available because of the spreading contamination.
The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night. (Revelation 8:1 2)
The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify Him. (Revelation 16:8-9)
The Fifth Angel previously appeared in Chapter 3 when he opened the underworld with a key for an army of demons to arrive and possess human beings. In the 360-degree projection of these prophetic events, this angel is the only one who seems to appear twice with a time sequence of 150 days between those appearances. This sequence follows the conclusion of the 4th trumpet’s sounding and ends those demonic possessions. It merges together with the 6th trumpet sound that opens the 6th Seal, which are the final blow that ends this series of events with a gigantic earthquake and the Seven Thunders of the Apocalypse.
Let’s return to the armies of the world gathered for a gigantic battle north of Jerusalem. Never before in all of history has such a multitude been assembled. Suddenly, in the midst of infighting among the soldiers, mutiny among its generals, as well as acts of sabotage and killing for control over these vast armies, rumblings will be heard deep within the earth.
As the earth keeps shaking, now all people will panic. Utter chaos will ensue. The huge military wheels of 200 million soldiers will grind to a halt as they experience the destructive effects of the biggest and longest-lasting earthquake ever to erupt on earth. Yahweh – Jehovah, the ancient God of Israel will burn with anger like a volcanic eruption equivalent of multitudes of exploding H-bombs that affect the whole earth.
This great earthquake (allegorically like Daleth thunder in the earth) results from the seventh trumpet and seventh vial and constitutes the Third Woe. At the same time that the Seven Thunders commence the process of clearing the Second Heaven atmosphere of Heh dimension demonic forces, they cause Daleth dimension effects in the form of hundred pound hailstones that pummel the armies of the earth. (Isaiah 24:21)
The Third Woe plagues of Seven Thunders, hailstones and the great earthquake end the Second Woe. Not only do they destroy the remaining armed forces of mortal man but also the powers of darkness. The deadly plagues of the Apocalypse will be cut short to preserve a people and prepare the way for Christ to return to the earth - at the time appointed but even yet then unknown.
The earth is broken asunder, the earth is split through, the earth is shaken violently, the earth reels to and fro like a drunkard, and it totters like a shack, for its transgression is heavy upon it, and it will fall, never to rise again. (Isaiah 24:19-20)
The earthquake will be felt worldwide. Every city on the globe will be destroyed as mountains disappear and valleys are raised up to leveled plains. To attempt to scientifically explain such gigantic terrestrial occurrences, I can think of only one physical cause: It is the delayed result of the previous impact of the meteors. Perhaps their impact was so forceful that it had dislodged the inner earth’s magma mass causing a gravitational imbalance. The tectonic plates of the earth’s crust have built up thousands of years of stress and pressure that, at God’s chosen moment will be suddenly released with a mammoth burst of energy.
Just as in Noah's days, God executes a worldwide, apocalyptic judgment on mankind. The sweeping devastation of this earthquake will shrink the world population so much that those remaining alive will finally recognize the God of the Bible as Lord of all creation.
For the scientifically inclined skeptic, I would like to reference an article I read recently. Science News published an article written by Sorcha McDonagh entitled "On Shifting Ground: How Much Is Enough When Mitigating Earthquakes Damage?" The author states,
Earthquakes now endanger more people than ever. The world population has more than doubled in the past fifty years, and by 2007 half of the planet's 6.6 billion people will be living in urban centers. Because more than 380 major cities lie on or near unstable seams in the earth's crust, one seismologist has come to a grim conclusion: A catastrophic temblor sufficient to kill one million could occur.
The number 6.6 billion is significant since six (6) is the number for man throughout the Bible. Biblical prophecy is not too far-fetched. I like to ask this scientist, what would be his prognosis if 50-km large mountain size asteroids hit the earth?
Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth; and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake. (Revelation 8:5 NRSV)
Toward the end, Satan will lose control of the vast army that will approach Israel from the east and north. When he realizes that his end is near, he will give the order to push the button to blow up all nuclear bombs under his control. But before he can do that, God will intervene with an earthquake so great that all the cities of the world will be leveled. This will be the biggest earthquake ever to hit the earth. Mountains will be dislocated. The atmosphere will be choked with dust.
See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants—it will be the same for priest as for people, for master as for servant, for mistress as for maid, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered.
The Lord has spoken this word. The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted of the earth languish. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt.
Therefore earth's inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left. The new wine dries up and the vine withers; all the merrymakers groan. The gaiety of the tambourines is stilled, the noise of the revelers has stopped, the joyful harp is silent. No longer do they drink wine with a song; the beer is bitter to its drinkers. The ruined city lies desolate; the entrance to every house is barred. In the streets they cry out for wine; all joy turns to gloom, all gaiety is banished from the earth. The city is left in ruins, its gate is battered to pieces. So will it be on the earth and among the nations, as when an olive tree is beaten, or as when gleanings are left after the grape harvest.
But I said, "I waste away, I waste away! Woe to me! The treacherous betray! With treachery the treacherous betray!" Terror and pit and snare await you, O people of the earth. Whoever flees at the sound of terror will fall into a pit; whoever climbs out of the pit will be caught in a snare.
The floodgates of the heavens are opened, the foundations of the earth shake. The earth is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is thoroughly shaken. The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls—never to rise again.
In that day (the Seven Thunders) the Lord will punish the powers in the heavens above (Satan and his evil angels) and the kings on the earth below (the Great Earthquake). They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days.
The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed; for the Lord Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders, gloriously. (Isaiah 24:1-23, parentheses added)
The resulting global destruction will affect electric power stations worldwide, preventing Satan's attempts to totally destroy the world by Weapons of Mass Destruction. Without electricity, all electronic circuits are inoperative to release Satan's pre-programmed enforcement, which cannot be activated. Rockets on high alert will become useless because the satellites used by their navigational guidance systems and will be burned up by the sun’s disturbance to fall out orbit towards the earth. Without the telecommunications satellites in their proper positions, all Internet, radio, or televised communications, including telephones, will no longer work either. The infrastructure required to coordinate and operate missile installations and other military hardware will become useless around the world.
Satan’s time is up! Once the air is cleared by the Seven Thunders and the armies of Armageddon are destroyed, an angel from heaven will come with an iron chain to bind and throw him into a sealed pit, which is the underworld. Let’s read some of the many Bible verses about these events. We will then see that God will call all of the nations together for judgment:
When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and there came a great earthquake; the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree drops its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll rolling itself up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Then the kings of the earth and the magnates and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, calling to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of the one seated on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?" (Revelation 6:12-17 NRSV)
Russia and her armies will be assaulted with hailstorms, horrible diseases, and mass confusion. They will have killed one another in panic . Whoever survives the confusion will die from the earthquake or the hundred pound hailstones.
Thus says the Lord God: Are you he of whom I spoke in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel, who in those days prophesied for years that I would bring you against them?
On that day, when Gog [ Russia] comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, my wrath shall be aroused. For in my jealousy and in my blazing wrath I declare: On that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; the fish of the sea, and the birds of the air, and the animals of the field, and all creeping things that creep on the ground, and all human beings that are on the face of the earth, shall quake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the cliffs shall fall, and every wall shall tumble to the ground.
I will summon the sword against Gog in all my mountains, says the Lord God; the swords of all will be against their comrades. With pestilence and bloodshed I will enter into judgment with him; and I will pour down torrential rains and hailstones, fire and sulfur, upon him and his troops and the many peoples that are with him. So I will display my greatness and my holiness and make myself known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the Lord. (Ezekiel 38:17-23 NRSV, brackets added)
The Lord will personally fight against the nations who come to exterminate the Jews. They will be completely annihilated by a special plague. It may be a bomb of flesh eating bacteria or just the blast of his radiant appearance that does it. However it happens, the Bible states that their flesh will literally melt off their bones. Not one soldier will be left alive.
See, a day is coming for the Lord, when the plunder taken from you will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses looted and the women raped; half the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives, which lies before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley; so that one half of the Mount shall withdraw northward, and the other half southward. And you shall flee by the valley of the Lord's mountain, for the valley between the mountains shall reach to Azal; and you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. (Zechariah 14:1-5 NRSV)
This shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh shall rot while they are still on their feet; their eyes shall rot in their sockets, and their tongues shall rot in their mouths. On that day a great panic from the Lord shall fall on them, so that each will seize the hand of a neighbor, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other; even Judah will fight at Jerusalem.
And the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected--gold, silver, and garments in great abundance. And a plague like this plague [flesh eating bacteria, viruses] shall fall on the horses, the mules, the camels, the donkeys, and whatever animals may be in those camps. (Zechariah 14:12-15 NRSV, brackets added)
Personally, I shudder at the Bible’s graphic description of God’s prophesied wrath and anger over this civilization. All nations will gather in a final permanent solution to destroy Israel – such a tiny nation among the nations of the earth. For them to do so is like touching the pupil of God’s eyeball. It will result in a level of destruction unparalleled in the earth’s history in the fulfillment of what the prophet warned the world over 2,500 years ago.
Very few will survive the earthquake and the other woes spelled out in the book of Revelation. The cleansing of the Seven Thunders and Satan’s imprisonment in the abyss will mean the end of every false religion – including the corrupted Babylonish Christianity and Islam. Writing this is very difficult for me, because there are many innocent (among others) Buddhist, Hindu, and Islamic families, which are in the midst of this turmoil. I did not write these prophecies; I only attempt to explain in layman’s terms what is written in those ancient scrolls as handed down to us. Bible prophecies do indicate that very small remnants of Assyria ( Iraq and adjacent areas) and Egypt, which are Muslim countries, will survive.
This shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh shall rot while they are still on their feet; their eyes shall rot in their sockets, and their tongues shall rot in their mouths. On that day a great panic from the Lord shall fall on them, so that each will seize the hand of a neighbor, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other; even Judah will fight at Jerusalem.
And the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected--gold, silver, and garments in great abundance. And a plague like this plague [flesh eating bacteria, viruses] shall fall on the horses, the mules, the camels, the donkeys, and whatever animals may be in those camps. (Zechariah 14: 12-15 NRSV, brackets added)
The Lord will shorten these days to preserve enough human beings to repopulate the future world. The armies of the world that gathered for the destruction of Israel have been totally defeated and completely destroyed. God will fight for his people, and Israel will witness one of the greatest miracles ever to occur on earth.
Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weakling say, “I am a warrior.” (Joel 3:10 NRSV)
He shall judge between many peoples, and shall arbitrate between strong nations far away; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more; but they shall all sit under their own vines and under their own fig trees, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken. (Micah 4:3-4 NRSV)
Notice the reversal in how the new age to come will use metal. During the Zayin age of strife, the nations’ worldly wealth was ultimately invested in military armament in order to gain more economic and political power. This Satanic set of priorities did not benefit the average family. Instead it put hundreds of nations into bankruptcy.
But in God’s new economy the war materials will be converted into useful tools for peaceful purposes that bless all peoples everywhere. Wealth generated by its people will be redirected toward peaceful activities to benefit the family and surrounding community and building up an infrastructure for a Godly civilization under a government ruled by the resurrected Saints.
The Old Testament prophets reveal that God is a covenant maker and a covenant keeper. The central covenant of the Old Testament is the one between Abraham and God recorded in Genesis 15:9-20. In these verses, Abraham is told to prepare five animals, cutting four animals into half - but not the fifth one.
This use of the number five again indicates the Hebrew hand-finger rule, the thumb in relation to the other four fingers, Alpha – Daleth. To make a blood covenant was not unusual among nomads in that age of history. It was a common way to guarantee a promise and confirm a contract between two parties. The carcass pieces were laid out side by side, and the parties walked between them sealing the covenant forever.
When Abraham was ready, God did not show up right away. What showed up were birds of prey. While Abraham was driving them away, the sun went down. Only then was God ready at sunset to make his covenant with Abraham. He promised Abraham and his descendants that they would own all the land from the river of Egypt (perhaps the Nile) to the river Euphrates. The fulfillment of this forecast is at the end of the Zayin-Chet age as shown on my World Cuckoo Clock table.
God did not allow Abraham to walk between those pieces: God Himself did the walking in order to signify that he would keep Abraham’s side of the promise too. The birds of prey represent Satan’s efforts to prevent any kind of relationship with God. Their presence at the cutting of Abraham’s sacrifice/offering reveals, like a commercial on TV, that there is a product of value and substance to God’s purpose, a promise from the Creator of the universe. Thousands of years later Jesus also referred to the birds of prey as a prophetic sign reminding us to look for the covenant. When the birds show up, the events that will have transpired will then make sense to those who know the Bible.
I discovered God’s plan for this earth and overlaid it with a World Cuckoo Clock. From that clock I next developed the 7,000-Year Table of Human History. This seven thousand year diagram concept followed a 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse, a smaller egg, which located the Apocalypse. But when I came to the last period of the Apocalypse, I again found that the last seven months neatly aligned with all the other tables as the Micro-Apocalypse or Twelfth Period Table. Altogether, these symmetrical overlays of history and prophecy created a very strong case for the predicted events to happen on the dates indicated, so I wrote these books.
Jesus and the Apostles quote regularly from Old Testament prophets, because they are dependable, authoritative, and reliable and give credence when referenced to establish truth. Dealing with Israel as a nation is a fact in history. Her past and interaction with God is proof of Gods faithfulness to his promises for Israel’s future. We cannot understand the sayings of Jesus or the Gospels without relying on the prophets, because they are connected like ties connecting the other railroad track.
But to really comprehend what they are saying we must be aware of some rules. When we look through a prophetic telescope we encounter mountain peaks. There is a near fulfillment and distant ones further ahead in prophetic history. The valleys between those peaks represent indefinite duration of time that are impossible to measure because we can’t see them, or they are clouded from detailed view.
The Rosetta Stone 7:5 ratio principle reveals a seven-based dimension and existing in parallel configuration with a five-based dimension, which helps us to calculate the length and breadth of these valleys of time. Let’s look at an example. In Luke 4:14-22 Jesus reads a portion of Isaiah 61:1 but stops in the middle of the second verse.
The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor…
The first portion is the near prophecy. When he read it, Jesus said that “in your hearing today” this prophecy has been fulfilled. The other half of Isaiah’s prophecy is still in the future - a far fulfillment.
…and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn. (Isaiah 61:2 NRSV)
When we examine scripture references we must always look for the two mountain peaks, which represent the two witnesses required to establish truth.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:28-35 “For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.” He referred to the coming of the Son of Man immediately after the tribulation when he sends his angels to gather the elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. It will be easily recognized that the time has arrived. One marker of these coming times will be the real birds of prey gathered to feast on the warrior dead.
And you, mortal, prophesy against Gog [Russia] and say: Thus says the Lord GOD : I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal! I will turn you around and drive you forward, and bring you up from the remotest parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel.
I will strike your bow from your left hand, and will make your arrows drop out of your right hand. You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples that are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every kind and to the wild animals to be devoured. You shall fall in the open field; for I have spoken, says the Lord GOD. I will send fire on Magog and on those who live securely in the coastlands; and they shall know that I am the LORD. Ezekiel 39:1-6 NRSV Parentheses added.)
As for you, mortal, thus says the Lord God: Speak to the birds of every kind and to all the wild animals: Assemble and come, gather from all around to the sacrificial feast that I am preparing for you, a great sacrificial feast on the mountains of Israel, and you shall eat flesh and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth. (Ezekiel 39:17-18 NRSV)
I will display my glory among the nations; and all the nations shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid on them. The house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God, from that day forward. (Ezekiel 39:21-22 NRSV)
Mortal, raise a lamentation over Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say to him: You consider yourself a lion among the nations, but you are like a dragon in the seas; you thrash about in your streams, trouble the water with your feet, and foul your streams.
Thus says the Lord GOD : In an assembly of many peoples I will throw my net over you; and I will haul you up in my dragnet I will throw you on the ground, on the open field I will fling you, and will cause all the birds of the air to settle on you, and I will let the wild animals of the whole earth gorge themselves with you. I will strew your flesh on the mountains, and fill the valleys with your carcass. I will drench the land with your flowing blood up to the mountains, and the watercourses will be filled with you.
When I blot you out, I will cover the heavens, and make their stars dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give its light. All the shining lights of the heavens I will darken above you, and put darkness on your land, says the Lord GOD. (Ezekiel 32:2-8 NRSV)
The prophet wrote from the perspective of the ancient Persian Empire. Today, there are five Islamic countries south of Russia found in the territory of ancient Persia. They will ally themselves with other Islamic countries located in Asia and Africa to come against Israel together in the last days. The Jewish temple erected against their desires will become a grievous thorn in the eyes of all Islamic nations. It will be considered an abomination that desecrates one of the great holy places of their religion – the shrine and mosque on top of the ancient temple mount. They will come to liberate Jerusalem for Allah.
Their perpetual hatred against Israel will now crystallize in a last war to exterminate the Jews from that region and possibly the planet. The last battle the scripture refers to an area between Jericho and the West Bank and the Golan Heights.
It is well known that migratory birds come from Russia and Europe and migrate south to Africa over the winter. Then they come back north to nest in the spring and summer. Israel is located along their path of migration. About 10%, or 1 million, of the 10 million migrating storks and other species of birds are meat-eaters. Those that are not carrion eaters now will have become so by then due to the difficult times of the Apocalypse. They will play an important role in the clean-up of the Holy Land . When God destroys the armies of Islam, their corpses will be left to be eaten by birds.
So let us now consider the timing of these future events and look what the world clock tells us. I have pinpointed the destruction of the Third Temple on the 9th of Av (25 July 2015) because it is the date on the Hebrew calendar that the two previous temples were destroyed. The Islamic armies from the north will capture Jerusalem. They will then dismantle the structure of the Jewish Temple piece by piece to remove all traces of its defilement of their mosque, which consists of the entire Temple Mount enclosure as a result of their recent and continuing building programs since 1990.
When we add the gear of 40 days from the date of the Temple’s destruction on July 25 th, we arrive at 3 September 2015, which I predict will be the date of the biggest earthquake ever to strike the earth. The destructive force of this earthquake will destroy the converging armies of the world. On this date, millions of birds of prey will fly over the battlefields of Armageddon, where the 200,000,000 man army was destroyed by an earthquake.
Remember these last seven months compose the Twelfth Period Micro-Apocalypse that also overlay the Mini-Apocalypse and the seven years of the Great Apocalypse, which in turn overlays the 7,000-Year Table of Human history. This seven month period is just a smaller Russian Egg, but all of the components are the same, and they proportionately align with the mathematical precision of the clock’s numeric gears. This now is the point in the future when we have the 200 million dead bodies littering the hills and valleys surrounding Jerusalem.
This is where the birds of prey come into play. The two main seasons of bird migration over Israel take place in March-April and September-October. They fly in a narrow corridor along the coastal plain, and even the Israeli air force and airlines have problems avoiding them during those seasons. Because the birds can be sucked into the jet engines with disastrous results, the Israelis have had to set up a special surveillance to avoid these massive concentrations of birds seasonally flying north in the spring only to return south in the autumn.
The birds of prey gave me several thoughts to consider. Every year they are hungry when they reach Israel from coming great distances. In the future they will fly over the 200 million dead bodies spread out over the country side around Jerusalem. Naturally, they will settle down over these dead corpses and have the feast of their lifetime. The date of the great earthquake occurs right in the beginning of their yearly migration route, which means that the maximum number of migrating birds will pass over the carnage.
Bible prophecy is exact that even natural cycles conform to it because the author of both is God. Jesus mentioned the birds as a sign of this terrible time and to be watchful of his coming soon there after. The prophetic events are pre-placed so that the migration cycles will bring the number of birds necessary to fulfill them in detail.
Soon after Armageddon, Satan will be bound in the abyss where he remains until the end of the millennial rule of Jesus on earth. These last prophetic events take place during the fourth month (Tammuz position to the day) of the 12th Period’s seven months (22 May 2015 to 21 December 2015). Its Tammuz position corresponds to the 7th Period of the 7-Year Table of the Apocalypse’s twelve periods, when the Satan was cast out of heaven, descending to earth to “resurrect” the dead Antichrist’s body on December 21, 2012. The 7th Period is also a Tammuz position following the Rosetta Stone principle of the 7:5 ratio.
These two Tammuz events mark parallel actions: the first takes place in the Heh dimension and the second in the Daleth dimension (two mountain peaks and two witnesses). In the Heh instance of December 21, 2012 Satan is cast out from heaven (Tammuz position of the 7th Period of twelve). Similarly, in the 4th month of the 12th Period’s seven months (September 2015), Satan is bound and cast out of the freedom of the earth’s (Daleth) atmosphere into the depths of the earth, chained in the abyss of Hell during the middle, Tammuz position of the Twelfth period, being the 7th part of a total of twelve parts again matching the 7:5 ratio.
I have learned that there are so many coincidences that they must not be coincidences. In fact as I discover more prophetic events to add to the model of the Apocalypse, they all seem to drop into place as if I ordered it that way.
However, I hope that you can see that it is the Bible that has presented these events thousands of years ago. I have just come across them one at a time – and in no special order, only to discover the precise patterns charted in the tables. You take it from here and make your own conclusions.
