Please… Mega Quake

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 5, 2018 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:17-20 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath. And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found.

 

 

The context of this verse is before the Second Coming of Christ. It occurs near the end of the seven-year Tribulation. The Millennial Kingdom is about to commence. The seventh bowl concludes the judgments upon the earth and humanity.

…and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake. The last earthquake mentioned in the Bible will be the largest and strongest in the history of humanity. This earthquake will also be the most destructive. The Greek expression of the quake is restated three times. The earthquake is greatness and magnitude upon greatness and magnitude upon greatness and magnitude. The scale and power are larger than the Discovery Channel can imagine. It is the Mega Quake!

The great city was split into three parts. The great city is mystery Babylon. Some think the city is a reborn Babylon in modern day Iraq. Others think it is Rome, Italy. Some believe it is Istanbul, Turkey. Mecca, Saudi Arabia is a city on seven hills. Pick your seven hilled city. Conjecture in regards to city is pointless.

…and the cities of the nations fell… All the cities (plural) of the nations (plural) are doomed. The Greek word for “fell” is πιπτο/pipto. Per Strong’s Concordance, it means: to descend from a higher place to a lower; to be thrust down; come to an end, disappear, cease; to lose authority, no longer have force. Metaphorically: to fall under judgment, came under condemnation. “It is done!”

And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found. The idea of no more mountains and changed geography is noted in multiple places in the Bible. Revelation is not the only source of this concept.

Psalm 97:5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

Psalm 46:6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.

Isaiah 24:19 The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.

 

The level of destruction is unimaginable. We cannot comprehend. It says what it says.

Please… Quake Marks the Spot

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , on July 29, 2018 by paulthepoke

Revelation 8:5 Then the angel took the censer and filled it with the fire of the altar, and threw it to the earth; and there followed peals of thunder and sounds and flashes of lightning and an earthquake.

Revelation 11:13 And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Revelation 11:19 And the temple of God which is in heaven was opened; and the ark of His covenant appeared in His temple, and there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder and an earthquake and a great hailstorm.

Revelation 16:18 And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty.

 

This set of quakes takes place seven years before the Millennial Kingdom. Geography and geology are going to change for planet Earth. Each earthquake will increase with regard to intensity. The first quake in Revelation 6:12 moves mountains and islands out of their place. A seismic chain of reaction is started. Additional quakes will facilitate further land mass movement. The land we live on floats on molten lava and magma. The last quake in Revelation 16:18 will be the greatest in the history of man.

A pattern emerges with earthquakes in the book of Revelation. Earthquakes mark the end of each set of judgments (seals, trumpets, and bowls). The first earthquake in Revelation 6:12 is the sixth seal. The quake in Revelation 8:5 occurs before the beginning of the trumpet judgments. It is the seventh seal. The earthquake in Revelation 11:13 marks the sixth trumpet of seven. The quake in Revelation 11:19 is the seventh trumpet before the bowl judgments. The last earthquake in Revelation 16:18 marks the end of the seven bowl judgments.

In addition to the quake activity, imagine the collateral events associated. It is plausible to imagine significant volcanic eruptions which spew dust, ash, steam, and gases into the atmosphere. Tsunamis are highly likely. Breathing is going to be difficult.

Joel 2:30-31 I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth, blood, fire and columns of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

 

Revelation 11:13… Jerusalem is the city referenced. Today in 2018, Jerusalem’s population is estimated to be around 874,000+. The verse states a tenth of city’s infrastructure is destroyed. 7,000 people are prophesied to die in this earthquake.

This earthquake is also the exclamation point for the resurrection of the two witnesses of Revelation 11. People refuse to bury these two guys after they are killed by the antichrist. They are left to rot as an example. The citizens of Earth are throwing a party in honor of their death.

Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement: 5778/2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Fall Feasts, Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Teshuvah/Repent, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2017 by paulthepoke

Leviticus 16: Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement

Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement is celebrated on Tishri 10th. It is the last day of the 40 day period of Teshuvah. The holiday officially will be 10 days after Yom Teruah/Feast of Trumpets is declared at the sighting of the new moon. The new moon was declared on Thursday, September 21 outside of Jerusalem. In 2017, Yom Kippur is effectively Sunday, October 1 on our Gregorian calendar.

The Day of Atonement is viewed as the holiest day of Judaism. The day is a Sabbath day of rest. Yom Kippur is the only day a fast is required. The appointment begins at sun down.

The start of Teshuvah was announced in 2017 with a solar eclipse that crossed the United States from the northwest to the southeast. If one follows the understanding of the signs and symbols, the eclipse was a warning. Repent.

Teshuvah is the Hebrew word for repent. Change your heart and return to God. Live a Godly life. People are called to turn away from their sin and change course. It is a time of inward reflection and sincere self-assessment.  There are 40 days to make this consideration. The season implies we have turned away from God. And we need to return to God.

Psalm 53:2-3 God looks down from heaven on the children of man to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. They have all fallen away; together they have become corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one.

Romans 3:11 There is no one who understands; no one who seeks God.

The ultimate goal is to be face to face in relationship with God at Yom Kippur or the Day of Atonement. Sins are forgiven.

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

 

Let’s review what has happened on planet earth since the beginning of Teshuvah and the solar eclipse. All of this is in the last month. I apologize in advance. This is not a complete list…I am sure I missed some items.

The question begs. Was this, is this a warning? Did the people repent during the 40 day period of Teshuvah? If not, judgment is coming. Do we really want to see judgment if this was a warning???

Life rarely turns out like we thought it was going to when we were young, but it definitely can end up better if we put our trust in God. With His guidance, all things are possible. He wants what’s good & pleasant for us.

puerto ricoPray for the people of Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. The entire island is without power and facing many months of hardship. Pray for a break in the storms. Pray for communities and the island to come together and help their neighbor.

 mexicoflagPray for the people of Mexico following a devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake and volcano eruption. Loss of life and injuries are reported as significant. Damage to buildings and infrastructure has been crushing. Mexico continues to recover from Hurricane Katia. Pray for a break in the storms and natural disasters. Pray for the Mexican communities in their time of need and hope.

Pray for this broken world…

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart & lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him & He will make your paths straight.

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them & said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Trend Update: Groans & Birth Pains, September 2017

Luke 21:25 And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves… -Jesus

Isaiah 51:15 I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD of hosts is his name.

Pray for people around the world impacted by natural disasters.

The planet is currently experiencing a rough patch. Some have referenced the creation groaning. Others have called these events birth pains.

Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.

Hurricanes Sept 17 NOAA

The state of Florida is on the verge of taking a direct hit from Hurricane Irma. The storm is one of the largest and one of the most destructive hurricanes in the Atlantic basin in recorded history. At times, winds have been reported up to 215 mph. Islands experiencing the storm have been devastated.

The Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana are recovering from the flooding rains and winds of Hurricane Harvey. Up to 41 million people in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal are suffering from historic flooding in southeast Asia. Flooding and mudslides have occurred in Africa’s Sierra Leone.

2 Peter 3:7 But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

The scope of Peter’s verse is the heavens and earth. Fire plays a significant role in the end times scenario.

wildfire-and-elk_OR-Dept-of-Forestry

The situation in the western half of the United States is an ignored tragedy. I am not suggesting these wild fires are the judgment of God.

76 forest fires are noted in 9 western states. Approximately 1.4 million acres of land are burning. The smoke can be viewed by satellites from space. Smoke can be observed from space from the west coast to the east coast of the United States.

http://www.ibtimes.com/wildfire-map-2017-76-fires-engulf-oregon-other-western-states-2587478

Know at some point in the future, judgment is coming to the planet in the form of fire.

Luke 21:11 …and there will be great earthquakes…

September 8, 2017: A magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck off the coast of Mexico. Multiple aftershocks of 5.0 have been registered. As of this date, 61 are reported dead. Nearly 2 million homes have lost power. Tsunami warnings were issued. Waves as high as 3 feet were reported. Hurricane Katia in the western Gulf of Mexico will only complicate the matter.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/08/americas/earthquake-hits-off-the-coast-of-southern-mexico/index.html

A swarm of over 200 quakes has been reported on the southwest edge of Yellowstone in Soda Springs, Idaho. Over 2,300 tremors have been reported in the Yellowstone caldera since the beginning of June 2017.

Is this the time Jesus referenced? Did He really mean what He said? Jesus also spoke of a better day. Good news is coming.

Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

The focus is on the word “redemption”. It is the Greek word ἀπολύτρωσις/apolutrósis. Strong’s Concordance defines as: release effected by payment of ransom; redemption, deliverance.

HELPS word studies states the following: literally, “buying back from, re-purchasing (winning back) what was previously forfeited (lost).”

The believer’s glorification is coming. We will be transformed and born again.

1 Corinthians 15:49 Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.

Trend Update: Tremors in Super Volcanoes, August 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2017 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes…

While America was watching the solar eclipse…there were a couple of earthquakes of note. The issue was not the size of the quakes but the location. An earthquake was reported in Yellowstone National Park during the eclipse. Also in Europe, a quake was noted near Naples, Italy on the island of Ischia. Both of these earthquakes took place in relation to super volcanoes.

The vacation island of Ischia is located west of the Naples metro area. Ischia Island is located in the Campi Flegrei super volcano complex. This is the same region that is home to Mount Vesuvius near Pompeii. This is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.

The quake has been revised to 4.2 on the Richter Scale at a depth of 10 km (approximately 6 miles). Up to 14 aftershocks have been reported. Damage to buildings and homes has been significant. At least 2 lives were lost. Injuries continue to mount.

https://www.thelocal.it/20170822/shocking-to-die-in-such-low-magnitude-earthquake-says-chief-geologist

 

yellowstoneYellowstone National Park: A 3.2 magnitude quake was indicated on the western edge of the park per the USGS. Quakes in the Yellowstone area have been increasing in frequency and intensity over the past few months. With all the activity in the park, the ground is reported to have risen by 3 inches in various area.

NASA is reported to have plans on the books to stop a Yellowstone volcano eruption.

The following is an excerpt from The Sun. One of the “risky” plans includes drilling to the bottom of the the volcano and using high pressure water to release heat from the magma chamber.

Editorial comment by this author…bad idea. This concept is not working with injection wells at fracking sites in the oil fields. The end result has been earthquakes where quakes had not previously occurred. See Oklahoma.

Of note, all stories related to this event in Yellowstone were noted in foreign news sources from England and Israel.

Long Valley CAThese two super volcanoes are not the only active areas. The Long Valley Caldera in California is awake. Seismic activity is reported at negative levels per the USGS. Measurements taken are relative to sea level. The majority of quake activity is reported to occur below sea level. Many shallow quakes occur at depth down to 7 miles or less below the surface. That would mean the activity taking place in California is occurring in the mountains of the volcano. As in Yellowstone, the geography of the area is reported to be raised up to 6 inches.

 

Lake Toba and Krakatoa in Indonesia remain active with consistent seismic activity. Super volcanoes are actively rumbling in Europe, North America, and southeast Asia.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.
