Chapter 10

Chapter 10
The Son of Perdition



“I am God!” I expect to hear this statement coming out of the mouth of the man that will be the first and last human ruler of the entire world—the antichrist. And, believe it or not, many will believe his words and fall for his deception, and he will be heralded as the greatest man to ever live as he brings peace to a worn-torn, tumultuous world. Yes, there is coming a day when the world will cry out for someone to bring peace to the world and rule over them. After the chaos of the first four seals unfolds upon the earth—financial collapse, WWIII, famines, plagues, and death — and the desperation during the aftermath; the world will unfortunately turn to a man filled with satan to solve its problems — the false messiah, the son of perdition, the antichrist.

Since authority over the world will be given to him for the last 3.5 years of the 70th Week, his actions will affect every person living on the earth at that time. With the opening of the fifth seal, no one on earth will be able to buy or sell without taking his mark (Rev. 13:16,17) and he will wage war against Christians and Jews and they will suffer severe persecution at his hands: “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Rev 13:7) Here is what the illuminati plan revealed in the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” say about his reign of despotism “and our kingdom will be distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe out any ... who oppose us by deed or word."

We have briefly discussed the antichrist throughout the book, but since he will hold such a prominent position—the head of the NWO—and will affect so many, I believe that we should examine the biblical facts and other pertinent information about him. Exposing him may also help some avoid the trap of his deceptions.

What the Prophecies Reveal
One of the most prominent, easily recognized, and most likely public actions of the antichrist prophesied in scripture, which we have already discussed in detail, is that in the midst of the 70th Week, he will strengthen the seven-year peace treaty that was made with “the many.”

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (Dan. 9:27)

Not only will he strengthen the peace treaty that will have already been in existence before he comes on the scene, but also this verse tells us another prominent action of the antichrist—that he will perform the abomination of desolation. This is when he will enter the temple and stop the sacrifices and proclaim to the entire world that he is god.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (2 Thess. 2: 3,4)

Of course this cannot happen until there is a temple, which will most likely be rebuilt during the first half of the 70th Week after the Dome of the Rock is destroyed by his henchmen. Daniel gives us more insights about the antichrist and his religious beliefs.

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. (Dan. 11:37-39)

Some interpret this verse to mean the antichrist will worship a god of forces/science and that he will set himself above all gods. The phrase “nor the desire of women” could refer to the fact that he will not worship a female god or could be in regards to his sexual orientation...

The Symbol


Hello all. I need help in identifying the symbol above. I believe that it is from 1700s or before and may be associated with the Temple in Jerusalem and or masonry. If any one knows anything about it please email me at email@thecomingepiphany.com or post a comment.

Know Fear -- No Fear

end times, bible, prophecy, fear, tribulation, revelation
The world is entering one of the most tumultious periods in its existence--the end times. The sorrows and tribulations that are coming upon the world in the next few years are going to be intense. I must admit that thinking about the future has brought fear into my heart and may have brought fear into yours. Some do not even want to talk about the end times because it frightens them too much.

I know this; God does not want you to be afraid and God does want you to know the truth about the end times--for "the truth will set you free."

So how can we not be afraid? The answer; by fearing God.

For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 Say ye not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid. 13 Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; Isaiah 8:11-14

If we fear God by acknowledging who He is, the infinitely powerful creator who holds us accountable for our sins, and call out to Him to be saved we become one of His children. Just as parents have a desire protect their children, God will protect His in an infinitely greater way.

So the fear of the Lord brings protection and with protection comes the removal of fear. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: Prov 1:7a and that knowledge will vanquish fear.

What will God specifically do for His children? Job 5 gives a good summary: Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 18 For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. 19 He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. 20 In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. 21 Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. 22 At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth. 23 For thou shalt be in league with the stones of the field: and the beasts of the field shall be at peace with thee. 24 And thou shalt know that thy tabernacle shall be in peace; and thou shalt visit thy habitation, and shalt not sin. 25 Thou shalt know also that thy seed shall be great, and thine offspring as the grass of the earth. 26 Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season. 27 Lo this, we have searched it, so it is; hear it, and know thou it for thy good.

If we fear the Lord and are saved and become His child He will protect us and He will only allow times of tribulation and anguish to come upon us if it is for our good. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Rom 8:28. Problems can also come upon us for chastisement because of our disobedience. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 1Cor 11:30.

To sum it all up: Knowing fear leads to no fear. Let us rest securely in our Father's hands.

Chapter 9

Chapter 9
The Fourth Beast

Have you ever heard the term “New World Order?” That is the term given to the coming one world government. Former President Bush made reference to the NWO in several speeches. The Washington Times recently reported on the fact that President George Bush called for just such a New World Order while giving a speech in Canada:

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — President Bush yesterday challenged international leaders to create a new world order, declaring pre-September 11 multilateralism outmoded and asserting that freedom from terrorism will come only through pre-emptive action against enemies of democracy.[1]

In his inauguration speech, President Bush also acknowledged that the United States is going forward with the plan set about to bring in the “new order of the ages” or in other words the New World Order.[2] This coming one world government, NWO, was foreseen by Daniel thousands of years ago in a vision.

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. (Dan 7:7-8)

Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast…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. 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. 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. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. 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. (Dan 7:19-27)

The apostle John also saw a vision of the end times demonic world kingdom in Revelation 13.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 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. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Rev 13:1-8)

This most dreadful world empire represented by the fourth beast will be controlled by the devil himself, of which the antichrist will be the leader for the last 3.5 years of the 70th Week. The NWO, the final world kingdom, will be the supreme entity on the earth during the end-times, and this final world kingdom will directly and indirectly affect many people’s lives. They will be responsible for much of what occurs on the earth during the 70th Week and directly responsible for the first 5 seals. I feel it is necessary for people to know about the NWO so that people would not be caught off guard by their actions. The more you know about the NWO, the more you can help others avoid the great deception that is coming and that is already at work in the world today.

What Is the New World Order?
Throughout the ages many people—starting with Adam and Eve—have been deceived into following satan and doing his bidding. For the last couple of hundred years, satan has gathered a group of people whose goal has been to take over the world and form a one-world government. This group of people could best be called ”the illuminati.” And can refer to any group which has “seen the light” and been “illuminated” in the satanic way described above. This would include Masons, Theosophists, Knights Templar, satanists, pagans, and New Age adherents. All of these groups are very similar in belief.[3]
Here is a quote from New Age adherent and promoter David Spangler that shows the satan/Illuminati/New Age connection.

Lucifer is the angel of man’s inner light….Lucifer, like Christ, stands at the door of man’s consciousness and knocks….If man says, ‘Come in,’ Lucifer becomes….the being who carries…the light of wisdom….Lucifer is literally the angel of experience. He is an agent of God’s love…and we move into a new age…each of us in some way is brought to that point which I term the Luceriferic initiation….It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.[4]

In recent years, Illuminati have risen to the top of world and national politics. Here is a list of a few of the reported modern day Illuminati groups: The Carnegies, The CFR, The Bilderbergers, The Rothschilds, and the Tri Lateral Commission. Illuminati are in key world positions and control much of what happens in the world. Listen to what Jim Searcy has to say about the power and control of the Illuminati:...

[2] Bush transcript, Fox News;

[3] Hitler was an illuminati who masqueraded as a Christian and was part of a satanic group called the Thule Society. Here is what he said: “I got Illumination…from the Freemasons….There is one dangerous element…I have copied from the Freemasons. They form a sort of priestly nobility. They have developed an esoteric doctrine….imparted through the medium of symbols and mysterious rites in degrees of initiation…by working on the imagination through magic and symbols of a cult —all this is the dangerous element that I have taken over. Don’t you see that our party must be of this character?…. An order, the hierarchical Order of a secular priesthood.” (Morals and Dogma. p.60.) Beware of leaders who proclaim to be Christians but their actions speak differently, especially if they have associations with the illuminati or veiled satanic groups and especially if they make statements like “we all worship the same God.” Christians are to obey the government (Rom 13:1) and “honor the king” (I Pet 2:17). But that does not mean that Christians should blindly follow leaders or the government in disobeying the Lord.

[41] Some have cited Luke 21:12-24 as evidence that WWIII occurs after the Abomination of Desolation. One reason that they surmise this is because the passage says; “But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.” Thus, they assert that the things mentioned above all happen after Seal 5. If you just take the Luke passage alone, that is a logical conclusion, but taking into account the Matthew and Mark passage, which places the “nation arising against nation” before the Abomination of Desolation, this creates a contradiction. Scripture cannot contradict scripture; thus there has to be another interpretation for the Luke passage. The other interpretation is that the persecution that would happen before all these sorrows is the persecution that the first century Christians endured. Here is what Ryrie has to say about this in his Study Bible. “Luke 21-7 when …will these things happen? There is a dual perspective in Christ’s answer—the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 and the tribulation days just prior to his Second Coming.” So I believe that the persecution that will occur before the great wars mentioned in the Luke passage is in reference to the persecution that the first century Christians endured.

[47] It is interesting to note that a day and a year after the “birthing ceremonies” was the infamous 9/11 tragedy. The time span of “A day and a year” is significant to illuminati. This, among other things, is one of the indications that 9/11 was part of the illuminati plan to establish the NWO.

3 Lines to Israel; One for Life, Two for Death

israel, usa, bible, prophecy, end times, katrina, revelation, divide land, jerusalem, america
There are three lines; 2 are for death and one is for life. What will you choose America? What will you choose Israel? Here is the rest of the story...

The other night as I was reading my Bible for my nightly devotions I randomly turned to 2 Samuel 8. The second verse hit me like a ton of bricks.

And after this it came to pass that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them: and David took Methegammah out of the hand of the Philistines. 2And he smote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground; even with two lines measured he to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites became David's servants, and brought gifts. (2Samuel 8:1,2)

Let's investigate the passage and see what it means. The phrase "with a line" only occurs once in the KJV. Strong's defines the word like this.

Strong's H2256 - chebel

1) a cord, rope, territory, band, company

a) a rope, cord
b) a measuring-cord or line
c) a measured portion, lot, part, region
d) a band or company

2) pain, sorrow, travail, pang

a) pains of travail
b) pains, pangs, sorrows

3) union

4) destruction

Matthew Henry comments on the passage;

God had given David rest from all his enemies that opposed him and made head against him; and he having made a good use of that rest, has now commission given him to make war upon them, and to act offensively for the avenging of Israel’s quarrels and the recovery of their rights; for as yet they were not in full possession of that country to which by the promise of God they were entitled...

He smote the Moabites, and made them tributaries to Israel, v. 2. He divided the country into three parts, two of which he destroyed, casting down the strong-holds, and putting all to the sword; the third part he spared, to till the ground and be servants to Israel. Dr. Lightfoot says, "He laid them on the ground and measured them with a cord, who should be slain and who should live;’’ and this is called meting out the valley of Succoth, Ps. 60:6. The Jews say he used this severity with the Moabites because they had slain his parents and brethren, whom he put under the protection of the king of Moab during his exile, 1 Sa. 22:3, 4. He did it in justice, because they had been dangerous enemies to the Israel of God; and in policy, because, if left in their strength, they still would have been so. But observe, Though it was necessary that two-thirds should be cut off, yet the line that was to keep alive, though it was but one, is ordered to be a full line. Be sure to give that length enough; let the line of mercy be stretched to the utmost in favorem vitae—so as to favour life.
Matthew Henry Commentary

In the post "A-lining" With Israel it was shown that there are three lines that align with prominent locations in the United States and Israel. One that goes through the capital in Washington D.C., the first capital in New York, and the Golan Heights. The second goes through the capital in Washington D.C., the second capital in Philadelphia, and the Gaza Strip. The third goes through Independence Hall and the Temple Mount and aligns with "interesting" locations in the USA. It was also shown that these lines have profound prophetic implications.

So we have 3 prominent lines between the USA and Israel and 2 days after the study was posted as I randomly open my Bible God brings me to the only passage in scripture that contains the phrase "with a line," and a passage that references three lines! I find this highly significant and beyond coincidence.

Here are the implications as I see it. First; I take this occurrence as a confirmation from God for the information in the "A-lining" With Israel post. Secondly; I believe that the 2 lines of death are the lines that point to the Golan Heights and the Gaza Strip, and that if we force Israel to divide her land and give back these territories as is being promoted by many, that God will allow satan to destroy our land. I also believe that it is highly possible that just as David divided the land of the Moabites and killed those who lived within certain boundaries divided by the lines that God will allow satan to destroy portions of our land divided by those lines--possibly New York, Washington, Philadelphia or even the areas between them. Third our line of life is our supporting Israel's right to her land, our "chevron" of protection. We are in "dainger" if we choose to force her to divide it.

God brought another thought to my mind; check where Katrina made landfall.

israel, usa, bible, prophecy, end times, katrina, revelation, divide land, jerusalem, america
Look how close the line between the Temple Mount and Independence Hall is to where Katrina made land fall. As a matter of fact all three lines come close to this area.

israel, usa, bible, prophecy, end times, katrina, revelation, divide land, jerusalem, america
Look at the proximity of the line to what counties were declared Federal disaster areas.

israel, usa, bible, prophecy, end times, katrina, revelation, divide land, jerusalem, america
Many think that Katrina was a direct result of the USA pressuring Israel to remove settlers from the Gaza Strip as outlined in this article by World Net Daily.

JERUSALEM – While most religious authorities seem to agree one cannot discern the intentions of God, there has been talk in some circles here and on the Internet that the storm that turned parts of the Gulf Coast into a disaster zone, prompting hundreds of thousands to evacuate their homes and possibly causing upwards of 10,000 deaths, was thrust upon the U.S. for its support of the Gaza evacuation.

"Katrina is a consequence of the destruction of [Gaza's] Gush Katif [slate of Jewish communities] with America's urging and encouragement," Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Lewin, executive director of the Rabbinic Congress for Peace, told WND. "The U.S. should have discouraged Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon from implementing the Gaza evacuation rather than pushing for it and pressuring Israel into concessions..."

The article goes on to describe similarities between the two events. This all brings me to repeat what I said before in the "A-lining With Israel" post; AMERICA DO NOT DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL!

Today in my devotions the Lord brought me to a passage which I believe is a message for Israel, who is not innocent in her dealings.

1The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2Stand in the gate of the LORD's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD. 3Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these. 5For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; 6If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: 7Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever. Jeremiah 7:1-7

Do you, O Israel, want to dwell securely and peacefully in your land and prosper? Then turn to Jesus and accept Him as your Messiah. One day after you have been deceived and ravaged by the antichrist one third of you, O Israel, will and you will be saved and dwell in the land peacefully and you will prosper.

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. 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. (Zech 13:8–9)

7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. 8For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: 9But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. 10Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. 11For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished. Jeremiah 30:7-11.

There are three lines; 2 are for death and one is for life. What will you choose America? What will you choose Israel?

God's day of wrath is almost here. He offers all a life-line in the Lord Jesus Christ. Are you saved from your sins? Read here to find out how.

Chapter 8
O America!

O beautiful for spacious skies,
for amber waves of grain,
for purple mountain majesties above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!


America is the greatest most blessed nation in all the earth. Where does America fit in the prophetic scheme of things? Is America mentioned in the Bible? Will it have a role to play in the end-times scenario? Many say that America is not mentioned in the Bible. I disagree and strongly believe that America has been prophesied about in the Bible and that it will play a major role in the end times. How could the greatest nation in the world, the only super power, not have a role to play? Of course, it will. America has been mentioned many times in scripture. The clearest mention is found in Revelation 18. This chapter describes the end-times Babylon and the judgment that it will receive. I believe America is the end-times Babylon talked about in this chapter. Let us examine this chapter to find out why I believe America is the end-times Babylon, and what will happen to her.

The main reason why I — along with many others — believe that America is the Babylon talked about in Revelation 18 is because of several verses that, when considered collectively, lead us to conclude that America is the only country that fulfills all of the parameters listed in the verses. Let us examine what the scriptures say about this modern day end-times Babylon and see how they undeniably point to America.

1. End-times Babylon is a great nation that receives judgment for its many sins.

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Rev. 18:2)

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. (Rev. 18:3)...

Chapter 7

CHAPTER 7
The Millennium and Beyond


Have you ever tried to imagine what it would have been like to have been one of the disciples, and to have been able to spend time with, talk to, and interact with Jesus? I have and I think it must have been fantastic! Some day that will be a reality for all God’s children, we will be able to dwell with the Lord. That is the greatest aspect of the greatly anticipated Millennium kingdom—God dwelling with man. Right after the battle of Armageddon, Jesus will set up His Millennial Kingdom. Several events will take place during this time of transition. At this point, we will examine the order in which the events after the battle of Armageddon occur and concern ourselves with a more exact timing in the next chapter.

Let’s start this discussion with what happens after Armageddon. Immediately after the battle of Armageddon, the Lord will come from Bozrah to Jerusalem. Zechariah 14 speaks of this battle and then shows the Lord returning to Jerusalem:

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 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. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 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. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one. All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up…And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth…And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of tabernacles. (Zech 14:1-16)

This lengthy passage brings out several important facts. First we see the nations gathering against Israel, and from our discussion in the last chapter, we saw that Israel has been hidden and protected by God in Bozrah (Petra). Then, as the armies descend upon her, Jesus comes to the rescue of Israel and destroys the gathered armies. After the battle, He stands on the Mount of Olives, which splits and a great valley is formed. At this time, living waters will flow out of Jerusalem and the Lord will be anointed king over all the earth and all the land be turned into a plain and lifted up. The living waters are mentioned in Ezekiel and are seen to be coming from the throne of God and will bring blessings to the whole earth:

Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward…Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river. Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed. And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed….And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. (Ez 47:1-12)

In the passage above, the prophet Ezekiel sees a vision of this great river of life. It has as its source the house of the Lord and goes “out toward the east country, and goes down into the desert, and goes into the sea.” This indicates that the river of life will flow into the Dead Sea and restore and purify its waters and then flow to all the earth. Zechariah tells us that the river will divide into two parts. One part of the river will flow toward the Dead Sea and the other to the Mediterranean. “And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.” (Zech14:8) It also was noted by Ezekiel that there were trees for food and medicine that grow along side this river.

And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine. (Eze. 47:12)

The river will also bring life and healing with it. Remember that after the bowl judgments, all living things in the ocean were destroyed. This river will restore life wherever it flows, and will bring an abundance of fish.

So when Jesus returns to Jerusalem after the battle of Armageddon, the river of life will start flowing from the throne of God. This implies that the throne is there and further implies that the temple has been restored, because the temple is the place of God’s throne.

Ezekiel shows us these exact things in his description of the millennial temple:...

"A-lining" With Israel

america, israel, end times, bible, prophecy, babylon, destruction, 1967, six day war, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, revelation, usa, divide land, obama, jerusalem, temple

You are about to embark on an astounding journey that has profound prophetic implications. I take no credit for these findings but humbly thank God for the privilege of being shown these things through the infilling, controlling, and empowering of His Spirit. The Journey begins...

Recently it was brought to my attention by Ultraguy in his post "As the Sand on the Seashore..." that there is a great circle on the sphere of the earth that goes through the White House and Independence Hall and other noteworthy locations. I extended his line and found that it also passed through Israel. I then decided to investigate the matter further and I made a few more lines. I connected the three official capitals of the United States to see where they would lead. Some very interesting things occurred.

First I connected the capital building in Washington D.C. (the third official capital of the USA) to the Federal Capital building in New York City located on Wall st. (the first official capital of the United States) and extended the line and it continued through Europe and intersected Israel at the Golan Heights as pictured below.

america, israel, end times, bible, prophecy, babylon, destruction, 1967, six day war, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, revelation, usa, divide land, obama, jerusalem, templeamerica, israel, end times, bible, prophecy, babylon, destruction, 1967, six day war, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, revelation, usa, divide land, obama, jerusalem, temple
Next I connected the capital building in Washington D.C. (the third official capital of the USA) to Congress Hall in Philadelphia (the second official capital of the United States) and extended the line and it continued through Europe and intersected Israel at the Gaza strip as pictured below.


I find it very interesting that these lines both intersect the land of Israel, and not only just the land of Israel, but some of the land that Israel gained in the 1967 six day war and that she is being pressured by the USA and the world to give up as outlined below.

In 1979 the UN declared settlements in these areas to be illegal.

UN Security Council Resolution 446 (March 1979), declared settlements on the West Bank, Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights to be illegal. While most of the 65 Security Council and General Assembly resolutions passed against Israeli actions (and the 41 Security Council resolutions vetoed by the United States) have had near universal support in the UN (often with the United States and Israel alone among the dissenting), supporters of Israel claim that the resolutions often misconstrue International Law, that their supporters selectively apply them, and that the assemblies themselves are biased.


As you can see in the past we stood with Israel vetoing the measures but as you will see below our stance is changing. The world's effort to divide the land of Israel has continued and one of the plans that has gained widespread acceptance is the Geneva accord which would create a Palestinian state and force Israel to essentially go back to its borders before the six days war.

The Geneva agreement provides in great detail for an independent and demilitarized Palestine living alongside Israel. Borders between the states would be based on the 1967 lines with slight modifications, giving Israel the Gush Etzion settlements, Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, the Jewish quarter of the Old City and the settlement of Ma'aleh Edumim. An international religious authority would control central holy sites, with the Temple Mount officially under Palestinian sovereignty and the Western Wall and Jewish Quarter of the Old City under Israeli sovereignty. Israel would decide how many Palestinian refugees would be admitted to Israel. Other refugees would get compensation from international funds and would be accepted either into Palestine the countries in which they are currently residing or other countries.

And then we have this recent development from the Obama administration.

JERUSALEM - President Obama was expected to pressure visiting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu into accepting the Middle East Quartet's two-year timetable for formal Palestinian statehood in 2011. Though members of Netanyahu's inner cabinet advised the Israeli leader to resist any attempt by the White House or the so-called Middle East Quartet to put a stopwatch on "final status" negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, Obama and Secretary of State Clinton have thrown their support behind the 2011 statehood initiative. The Post reported that if PA-Israel peace negotiations are still deadlocked by 2011, Fayyad, with the encouragement of the White House, the Quartet and the Arab League, will formally announce Palestinian statehood in the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem, calling on Israel to immediately withdraw to the 1949 UN armistice lines. http://www.jewishpress.com/pageroute.do/43072

And the latest; an an international summit to divide the land.

U.S. President Barack Obama has told several European leaders that if Israeli-Palestinian talks remain stalemated into September or October, he will convene an international summit on achieving Mideast peace, senior Israeli officials told Haaretz on Thursday.

The officials said the conference would be run by the Quartet of Middle East peacemakers - the United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia - in a bid to forge a united global front for creating a Palestinian state. The summit, they said, would address such core issues as borders, security arrangements, Palestinian refugees and the status of Jerusalem
. http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/news/israeli-officials-obama-to-call-world-summit-if-mideast-peace-talks-fail-1.287469

So these lines that align with capitals of the United States intersect land in Israel that they gained in the six days war and are being pressured to give up. What is significant about these occurrences? I do not know for sure but I do know, as has been stated by many, that what we do to Israel God will do to us. This is called the scriptural principle of sowing and reaping. You sow a corn seed and you get back hundreds of corn seeds.

In my devotions yesterday morning as I randomly opened my Bible God brought me to the story of Haman in Esther. Most of us are familiar with the story; Haman was planning on killing all the Jews and hanging Mordecai on a gallows. But as it turned out Haman was hanged on his own gallows, what he sowed he reaped.

So what is significant about these lines and Israel and the USA? I can only speculate but based on the principal of sowing and reaping I have a sense that if we force Israel to give up her land that God might just allow satan to destroy our land that aligns with it--Washington, D.C., New York City, and Philadelphia. Or maybe He will allow the whole area from Washington, D.C. to New York to be destroyed.

After writing the above I had a sense that there was more to the story so I did a little more a-lining. What I found is astounding. I connected the Temple Mount in Jerusalem with Independence Hall in Philadelphia and continued the line to the Gulf of Mexico. The places that line hit left me awestruck to say the least. The first place it hits in the United States was in Massachusetts and believe it or not the first road it crossed was named Jerusalem Rd!

Here is the spot--Jerusalem rd.

Following the line to the Gulf of Mexico the last place it hits in the United State is Chevron Rd in Lafourche Parish Louisiana.

america, israel, end times, bible, prophecy, babylon, destruction, 1967, six day war, New York, Washington, Philadelphia, revelation, usa, divide land, obama, jerusalem, temple

Wow this is truly mind boggling! We have a line drawn from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem to Independence Hall and the first road it crosses in the USA is Jerusalem Rd it then hits Daingerfield Island in Washington, D.C. and then the last road it hits in the USA is Chevron Rd. in La Fourche Parish. To me this was astounding and I find it loaded with symbolism.

Here is what is says to me; First the definition of La Fourche is "Fork" as associated with "fork in the road." "The name, “Lafourche” comes from the Cajun French “Lafourche” meaning a “fork” in a river or path, he added." Houmatoday.com

A Chevron has various meanings "The chevron represents the roof of a house, derived from the French word "chevron" meaning rafter. It signifies protection. The Chevron was granted to those who had participated in some notable enterprise."House of Names

So what does this say to me? In the past the United States has been granted protection because we have supported Israel's right to her land--Chevron rd. The United States is now at a fork in the road; We have a choice to support Israel's right to her land or force her to divide it--La Fourche. The present administration is indicating that they are going to force Israel to divide her land and thus we are in great danger--Daingerfield Island.

Today the Lord brought me to this passage as I randomly opened my Bible.
Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: 3If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; 4Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. 5He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. 6But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand. 7So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. (Ezek 33: 1-7)

In response to that I say this; Listen America you are being warned. DO NOT DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL. If you do God will do to you as you have done to her. Take her cities and He will take your cities. Split her land and He will split yours. This has been said by many.
I know that as a nation we will reap what we sow and we have sowed many seeds of destruction. My hope is that we as a nation would support Israel's right to her land and that our nation would repent of her many sins before it is too late. However I know her fate ,and it is not good.

The good news is that you can be saved from your sins and escape God's wrath. Please read our salvation page to find out how.

There are three lines; 2 are for death and one is for life. What will you choose America? What will you choose Israel? Here is the rest of the story...

The other night as I was reading my Bible for my nightly devotions I randomly turned to 2 Samuel 8. The second verse hit me like a ton of bricks.

And after this it came to pass that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them: and David took Methegammah out of the hand of the Philistines. 2And he smote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground; even with two lines measured he to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites became David's servants, and brought gifts. (2Samuel 8:1,2)

Let's investigate the passage and see what it means. The phrase "with a line" only occurs once in the KJV. Strong's defines the word like this.

Strong's H2256 - chebel

1) a cord, rope, territory, band, company

a) a rope, cord
b) a measuring-cord or line
c) a measured portion, lot, part, region
d) a band or company

2) pain, sorrow, travail, pang

a) pains of travail
b) pains, pangs, sorrows

3) union

4) destruction

Matthew Henry comments on the passage;

God had given David rest from all his enemies that opposed him and made head against him; and he having made a good use of that rest, has now commission given him to make war upon them, and to act offensively for the avenging of Israel’s quarrels and the recovery of their rights; for as yet they were not in full possession of that country to which by the promise of God they were entitled...

He smote the Moabites, and made them tributaries to Israel, v. 2. He divided the country into three parts, two of which he destroyed, casting down the strong-holds, and putting all to the sword; the third part he spared, to till the ground and be servants to Israel. Dr. Lightfoot says, "He laid them on the ground and measured them with a cord, who should be slain and who should live;’’ and this is called meting out the valley of Succoth, Ps. 60:6. The Jews say he used this severity with the Moabites because they had slain his parents and brethren, whom he put under the protection of the king of Moab during his exile, 1 Sa. 22:3, 4. He did it in justice, because they had been dangerous enemies to the Israel of God; and in policy, because, if left in their strength, they still would have been so. But observe, Though it was necessary that two-thirds should be cut off, yet the line that was to keep alive, though it was but one, is ordered to be a full line. Be sure to give that length enough; let the line of mercy be stretched to the utmost in favorem vitae—so as to favour life.
Matthew Henry Commentary

In the post "A-lining" With Israel it was shown that there are three lines that align with prominent locations in the United States and Israel. One that goes through the capital in Washington D.C., the first capital in New York, and the Golan Heights. The second goes through the capital in Washington D.C., the second capital in Philadelphia, and the Gaza Strip. The third goes through Independence Hall and the Temple Mount and aligns with "interesting" locations in the USA. It was also shown that these lines have profound prophetic implications.

So we have 3 prominent lines between the USA and Israel and 2 days after the study was posted as I randomly open my Bible God brings me to the only passage in scripture that contains the phrase "with a line," and a passage that references three lines! I find this highly significant and beyond coincidence.

Here are the implications as I see it. First; I take this occurrence as a confirmation from God for the information in the "A-lining" With Israel post. Secondly; I believe that the 2 lines of death are the lines that point to the Golan Heights and the Gaza Strip, and that if we force Israel to divide her land and give back these territories as is being promoted by many, that God will allow satan to destroy our land. I also believe that it is highly possible that just as David divided the land of the Moabites and killed those who lived within certain boundaries divided by the lines that God will allow satan to destroy portions of our land divided by those lines--possibly New York, Washington, Philadelphia or even the areas between them. Third our line of life is our supporting Israel's right to her land, our "chevron" of protection. We are in "dainger" if we choose to force her to divide it.

God brought another thought to my mind; check where Katrina made landfall.

israel, usa, bible, prophecy, end times, katrina, revelation, divide land, jerusalem, america
Look how close the line between the Temple Mount and Independence Hall is to where Katrina made land fall. As a matter of fact all three lines come close to this area.

israel, usa, bible, prophecy, end times, katrina, revelation, divide land, jerusalem, america
Look at the proximity of the line to what counties were declared Federal disaster areas.

israel, usa, bible, prophecy, end times, katrina, revelation, divide land, jerusalem, america
Many think that Katrina was a direct result of the USA pressuring Israel to remove settlers from the Gaza Strip as outlined in this article by World Net Daily.

JERUSALEM – While most religious authorities seem to agree one cannot discern the intentions of God, there has been talk in some circles here and on the Internet that the storm that turned parts of the Gulf Coast into a disaster zone, prompting hundreds of thousands to evacuate their homes and possibly causing upwards of 10,000 deaths, was thrust upon the U.S. for its support of the Gaza evacuation.

"Katrina is a consequence of the destruction of [Gaza's] Gush Katif [slate of Jewish communities] with America's urging and encouragement," Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Lewin, executive director of the Rabbinic Congress for Peace, told WND. "The U.S. should have discouraged Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon from implementing the Gaza evacuation rather than pushing for it and pressuring Israel into concessions..."

The article goes on to describe similarities between the two events. This all brings me to repeat what I said before in the "A-lining With Israel" post; AMERICA DO NOT DIVIDE THE LAND OF ISRAEL!

Today in my devotions the Lord brought me to a passage which I believe is a message for Israel, who is not innocent in her dealings.

1The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2Stand in the gate of the LORD's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD. 3Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these. 5For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; 6If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: 7Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever. Jeremiah 7:1-7

Do you, O Israel, want to dwell securely and peacefully in your land and prosper? Then turn to Jesus and accept Him as your Messiah. One day after you have been deceived and ravaged by the antichrist one third of you, O Israel, will and you will be saved and dwell in the land peacefully and you will prosper.

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. 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. (Zech 13:8–9)

7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. 8For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: 9But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. 10Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. 11For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished. Jeremiah 30:7-11.

There are three lines; 2 are for death and one is for life. What will you choose America? What will you choose Israel?

God's day of wrath is almost here. He offers all a life-line in the Lord Jesus Christ. Are you saved from your sins? Read here to find out how.

What's Wrong With The Weather?

Updated 5/13/2010
Storms involving large scale flooding are increasing in frequency and magnitude, 300 - 400 year level of snowstorms are being breached, crops are failing, the gulf stream is becoming erratic, ice sheets are falling apart, methane is leaking from underneath permafrost, large earthquakes are increasing exponentially. What is going on and where will it lead?

The main cause for all of this is the SUN. The sun is going through a massive cyclical change that is wreaking havoc on the earth. The bad part is that we have not seen anything yet. In the next 2-3 years all of the above will increase to even greater degrees with possible world wide cataclysmic consequences. One of the most immediate and globally felt consequences will be food shortages which will accentuate the already collapsing economy. Yea and this all ties in with the 2012 date which by that time the disruptions could be very severe especially to the power grid.

Here is a short excerpt from the linked article above.

If the sun spot cycle mechanism is accurate, will there be pre-cursors? You betcha'. No doubt about it. And it can be postulated that the cracking of the Indo-Australian tectonic plate in the tsunami causing earthquake of 2004 is within the expected precursors. Other indicators are (will continue to be) increasing earthquakes, and other tectonic plate cracks. Further signs will come from solar behavior as well as the impacts of solar radiations here on earth. The radiation impacts will include damages to plants, and animals...

The electrical problems here on terra would include our communications satellites going wonky, perhaps even to the point of failure. This should happen some months prior to the energetic release by the sun. Other predictable electric effects will include strange 'ground' properties and static discharges of note at specific spots on the planet (internal hyper dimensional locations). It would seem likely that the planet would also continue to heat up internally in spite of atmospheric cooling. Thus the oceans will continue to warm, and the ice melt at the poles, even as large snow masses begin to build in formerly temperate zones.There will be predictable effects of the end of this nearly 12 thousand year cycle of sun spots on conditions here on earth. These will include a continuing building of large, and damaging earthquakes in an irregular, but frequent pattern globally, including these damaging earthquakes occurring in places not usually associated with quakes. This will 'peak' with a steady, daily shift to large (6+) earthquakes in many geologically sensitive areas on the planet.

Other predictable impacts include increasing down time for our satellites as the energies from space some pouring in through the decreasing terran magnetosphere... As may be understood, the final years leading up to a solar expansion and subsequent
pole and crustal shift here on earth are themselves likely to be filled with challenges to life and sanity

This press release just out.

The Space and Science Research Center (SSRC), the leading independent research organization in the United States on the subject of the next climate change, issues today the following warning of imminent crop damage expected to produce food and ethanol shortages for the US and Canada:

Over the next 30 months, global temperatures are expected to make another dramatic drop even greater than that seen during the 2007-2008 period. As the Earth’s current El Nino dissipates, the planet will return to the long term temperature decline brought on by the Sun’s historic reduction in output, the on-going “solar hibernation.” In follow-up to the specific global temperature forecast posted in SSRC Press Release 4-2009, the SSRC advises that in order to return to the long term decline slope from the current El Nino induced high temperatures, a significant global cold weather re-direction must occur. According to SSRC Director John Casey, “The Earth typically makes adjustments in major temperature spikes within two to three years. In this case as we cool down from El Nino, we are dealing with the combined effects of this planetary thermodynamic normalization and the influence of the more powerful underlying global temperature downturn brought on by the solar hibernation. Both forces will present the first opportunity since the period of Sun-caused global warming period ended to witness obvious harmful agricultural impacts of the new cold climate. Analysis shows that food and crop derived fuel will for the first time, become threatened in the next two and a half years. Though the SSRC does not get involved with short term weather prediction, it would not be unusual to see these ill-effects this year much less within the next 30 months.”

The SSRC further adds that the severity of this projected near term decline may be on the order of 0.9 C to 1.1 C from present levels. Surprising cold weather fronts will adversely impact all northern grain crops including of course wheat and the corn used in ethanol for automotive fuel.

In pointing out the importance and reliability of this new temperature forecast and its effects on North American crops, Director Casey adds,” The SSRC has been the only US independent research organization to correctly predict in advance three of the most important events in all of climate science history. We accurately announced beforehand, the end of global warming, a long term drop in the Earth’s temperatures and most importantly the advent of a historic drop in the Sun’s output, a solar hibernation. The US government’s leading science organizations, NASA and NOAA have completely missed all three, as of course have United Nations climate change experts. It is only because of the amount of expected criticism we received because of our strong opposition to the Obama administration’s climate change policies and our declaration of the end of global warming, that the SSRC is not more fully accepted for its leadership role in climate change forecasting. The facts and reliability surrounding our well publicized predictions however stand as testament to the SSRC’s proven ability to understand the nature of global climate change. In view of the importance of this new forecast I have notified the Secretary of Agriculture to take immediate actions to prepare the nation’s agricultural industry for the coming crop damage.”

The SSRC places only one caveat on this forecast. Casey elaborates, “Only a stronger solar cycle with a period longer than the 206 year cycle can cause us to alter our projections. Although more research is needed in this area, none have yet shown themselves. The present hibernation is proceeding in almost lock step as the last one which occurred from 1793 to 1830. If it continues on present course, while the cold weather impacts on food and fuel announced today are certainly important, they do not compare with what is to follow later. At the bottom of the cold cycle of this hibernation in the late 2020’s and 2030’s there will likely be years with devastating to total crop losses in the Canadian and northern US grain regions.”

Chapter 6

CHAPTER 6
The Great Day of His Wrath is Come

The Day of the Lord has begun! Christians, having been rescued from the wrath to come via the rapture, are with God in heaven. The peoples of the world, after realizing their error in following the antichrist, will be in a fear stricken panic. They have seen Christ in the clouds, and they have had an epiphany and are scared to death. The big question is what will happen next?

After the rapture occurs, many other catastrophic events—all part of the Day of the Lord—will occur during this time. These events are succinctly listed in Revelation and will encompass the seventh seal and the trumpet and vial (or bowl) judgments. We will examine these events individually, so we can get a feel for what this time will be like.

The Seventh Seal

The first judgment of the Day of the Lord is the seventh seal:

And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. 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. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. 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. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. (Rev. 8:1-6)

When the seventh seal is opened, the first thing that we notice is that there is a time of silence in heaven. This silence indicates to me that something very important and sobering is about to occur. It is plausible to theorize that there may also be a great silence in the hearts and minds of the people left on earth after the rapture, after having just seen Christ in the clouds and witnessing the disappearance of millions of people. I am sure that they will be pondering the events that just took place and the events that are about to unfold. The next thing we see is that fire is cast to the earth. This may indicate a meteor shower or horrific lightning storms. There is another earthquake and the seven trumpet judgments are permitted to begin.

Scripture tells us that this pouring out of wrath is the result of the prayers of the saints in connection with the persecution they have suffered at the hands of the antichrist and his followers (Rev. 6:10-11). God’s vengeance is a just recompense for the wickedness that the world has committed. So the seventh seal consists of “fire” cast to the earth, a great earthquake, and seven more judgments known as the trumpet judgments.

The First Trumpet
The first trumpet judgment is found in Rev. 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.

Several interpretations have been offered as to what this judgment entails, including a meteor shower, fire and brimstone literally falling from heaven, and severe thunderstorms with huge hail and catastrophic lightning. Although we cannot be sure, I feel that the language of the text lends itself to the latter interpretation. That is, the judgment consists of horrific thunderstorms with devastating hail and fire. One of the main reasons leading me to this conclusion is that the language in the passage is very similar to the language in Ex 9:22–23:

And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt. And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

We see here a local judgment on the land of Egypt consisting of horrific thunderstorms with devastating hail and fire. It is interesting to note that the hail caused fire to run upon the ground. This may be what is known as ball lightning, which has been observed frequently in modern times. This phenomena is caused by the air being super-charged with static electricity. I remember as a boy at scout camp a thunderstorm came across the bay toward where we were standing. As it approached, ball lightning eerily sizzled as it moved erratically about fifteen feet above our heads. It could have just as easily occurred on the ground. Another possible cause is electrically charged hail lying on the ground. While I feel the most likely scenario is horrific thunderstorms with hail, whatever this judgment is, it will result in one-third of all the trees on the earth being burnt up and all the grass being burnt up.
