Please… Judgment is Coming

Posted in Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , , on July 21, 2018 by paulthepoke

Judgment is coming. The seven-year period of tribulation will be marked by spiritual deception, world war, economic upheaval, famine, disease, asteroids, extreme weather, and on and on and on…

Jesus said it best.

Matthew 24:21-22 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.

 bloodmoonRevelation 6:12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood…

The context of the set of verses in Revelation 6 is the initial third of the Tribulation, the seals. This event takes place approximately 7 years before the beginning of Christ’s Kingdom. Granted, there appears to be significant issues with the sun, moon, stars, atmosphere and sky in this context. But, the focus of the section is the geological and geographical changes coming to planet Earth.

The earthquake starts the chain of events in the sixth seal. The quake is described as “great” or μεγασ/megas in the Greek. It can be translated as significant, severe, gigantic, or YUGE (huge) per Strong’s Concordance. This earthquake will be a big deal.

Revelation 6:14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

…and every mountain and island were moved out of their places… This is exactly what the verse says in the Greek. “Every” mountain and island will be moved out of its place. Each, every, the whole, all of them are moved.

The root word for “moved” is κινεο/kineo. It can also be translated: to cause to go, to move, set in motion. Figuratively, it will cause a commotion (NET Bible/Strong’s Concordance).

This verse is suggesting tectonic plate movement and change across the planet. The earthquake will knock things out of their place. Consider all of the mountain ranges in the world: The Rockies, Andes, Urals, Alps, Himalayas… Consider all of the islands in the world…

Recent history has not seen an earthquake that has caused continents to initiate movement and drifting. Modern day maps and globes will be obsolete.

judgment Door to Hell

Revelation 6:15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains;

God does not care how deep your bunker is. God does not care how much you have prepared. God does not care if you are the leader of a country. Military training will not save you. He does not care how much money and wealth one has acquired. Your intellect is no match for the Lamb, Jesus. It does not matter if you are isolated. A piece of advice to the social elite, you can run but you cannot hide.

Revelation 6:16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb…”

Be careful what you wish for. God will give you what you want. Revelation 16:20 beckons.

Revelation: Earth Prepares for the Big Quake…Featuring Bill Kitsch

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 22, 2017 by paulthepoke

We are on the cusp of global tectonic shift (the continents move). The ‘cracks’ all over the earth are the lifting and jostling of the tectonic plates. Ice melt equals removal of vast weight. Removal of weight causes ‘continental rise’ and alters Earth’s isostasy.

Dawes Glacier calving
i·sos·ta·sy  /īˈsästəsē/ noun:
The equilibrium that exists between parts of the earth’s crust, which behaves as if it consists of blocks floating on the underlying mantle, rising if material (such as an ice cap) is removed and sinking if material is deposited.

Isostasy affects the imposition of centrifugal forces on the continental mass. Therefore at the pole of Antarctica, both a continent and a tectonic plate, the centrifugal force increase is exponential!

As Antarctica takes off moving sideways and rotating simultaneously, a chain reaction shift of the plates occurs to restore balance – stasis; isostasy. Furthermore, we are seeing the magnetic pole has moved a few degrees. This is the manifestation of Earth’s magnetism holding back the plates from moving on the plastic substrate. Of course the field is distorted or pulled!

continental driftWhen centrifugal forces and other forces of the movement of the plates overcome the ability of the magnetic field to hold the plates back, we have ‘polar flip’. And magnetic forces move rapidly. Then the field gets dragged right over just like a Slinky when it jumps a step. The magnetic reversals are seen in the geological record.

The laws of displacement dictate that the predicted ‘sea level rise’, even if all the ice melted, is minimal at best. Therefore we need not worry about sea level rise as such. It’s a fairy tale.

mastodonThe mastodon are in the ice in Siberia with tropical plants in their digestive tracts because that continent (tectonic plate) moved north over 2000 miles in days. I calculate about 15 to 25 mph which means it would move 2000 miles in a couple of days to a week. The animals froze foraging for the last of the surviving plants native to the prior latitudes, where the continent was just days earlier. There is no scientific reason or mechanism that would cause ‘cold’ to come down from the north fast enough to cause this ‘flash freezing’ and remain for the entire period of glaciation.

We know moving glaciers pushing south would pulverize everything in their path. Glaciers moving down rapidly as a theory is ludicrous.

The Earth is in preparation (tectonically) for ‘the great earthquake’.

Revelation 16:17-21 (the seventh bowl): Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, “It is done.” 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. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremely severe.
But humans survived the onslaught…

Science and the Bible must and will line up in our understanding, regardless of our notions.

Luke 21:11 …and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. –Jesus

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Mark 13:8. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

Japan, November 21, 2016: An earthquake registering as high as 7.3 magnitude has struck off the coast near Fukushima. Yes, that is the same Fukushima of March 2011.

Tsunami warnings have been issued. Buoy data has been knocked out of commission near the quake area.

For earthquake geeks out there, I highly recommend these two social media personalities.

Luke 21:11 …and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. –Jesus

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Mark 13:8. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

October 31, 2016: Hundreds of earthquakes have hit central Italy over the past couple of months. Over 15,000 people are in shelters. The recent 6.6 tremblor is the strongest to hit Italy in 36 years.

A concern is a dormant volcano near Lake Albano is showing signs of life. The lake is located a few miles southeast of Rome. Scientists indicate magma is building. The ground is rising 2-3 mm per year.

“When the eruption happens, it has an explosive effect, like opening a champagne bottle after shaking it,” Fabrizio Marra of the National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology in Italy.

“It’s out of the question that they [the recent earthquakes] could have significant effects, at least for now, maybe in a thousand years they will.”

According to the experts, there is no need to worry…

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

Halloween 2016: To add insult to injury, a tropical storm formed in the Mediterranean Sea. The activity formed on October 28, 2016 and intensified.

A “Medicane” is an extremely rare weather event for the area.

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.

One gets the sense, this is not ending soon.

Take a side, Jesus or scientific experts.

Trend Update: Earth Staggers Like a Drunk, Planet 9??? October 2016

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2016 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 24:18c-20 For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble. The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken. The earth staggers like a drunken man; it sways like a hut; its transgression lies heavy upon it, and it falls, and will not rise again.

The Earth has fallen and it can’t get up. The context of Isaiah 24 is judgment against all humanity of the earth. The language of the chapter is full of seismic activity consistent with earthquakes. Look at the language of these two and a half verses as examples.

  • Foundations tremble…
  • Earth is broken…
  • Earth is split…
  • Earth is violently shaken…
  • Earth staggers…
  • Sways like a hut…
  • It falls…

In April 2015, the Inuit contacted NASA and informed the sky had changed. The Inuit people reside in the Arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland.

The changes reported included different positions of sun rises and sun sets, longer days, higher sun position, and increased warmth. Changes in moon positioning and constellations were noted as well. Predominant winds have changed directions.

All Inuit elders were in agreement. The planet has shifted toward the north.

January 20, 2016: The following excerpt is from Caltech.

Caltech researchers Mike Brown and Konstantin Batygin have found evidence of a giant planet tracing a bizarre, highly elongated orbit in the outer solar system. The dubbed Planet Nine has a mass about 10 times of Earth. It orbits about 20 times farther from the sun on average than Neptune (orbits the sun at an average distance of 2.8 billion miles). Planet 9 takes between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make one full orbit around the sun.

October 13, 2016: President Obama signs an executive order Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events. This executive order has multiple requests to be completed by multiple government agencies after the president is scheduled to leave office.

October 21, 2016: Scientists hypothesize the mysterious Planet 9 may be causing a wobble or tilt to our solar system and sun.

Allegedly, Planet 9 orbits about 30 degrees off the plane of planets in our solar system. As it gets closer, the planet could cause other heavenly bodies to tilt or wobble.

“Because Planet Nine is so massive and has an orbit tilted compared to the other planets, the solar system has no choice but to slowly twist out of alignment,” Elizabeth Bailey, Caltech graduate student and lead author.

“It continues to amaze us; every time we look carefully we continue to find that Planet Nine explains something about the solar system that had long been a mystery,” said Konstantin Batygin, an assistant professor of planetary science.

Beware! This topic is loaded with all kinds of theories. Some call it Planet X, Nibiru, Hercolubus…

As always, do your homework. What’s going on???

 

 

Trend Update: Quakes in Various Places, Salton Sea, Bombay Beach, California, September 2016

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2016 by paulthepoke

Over the past week, there has been a swarm of earthquakes under the Salton Sea. Granted, most of the earthquakes have been less than 2.5 in magnitude. One issue is the location. This earthquake swarm is located on the southern edge of the San Andreas Fault Line. At the time of this post, approximately 275 tremors have occurred under the Salton Sea in the last week. Is the Big One coming???

Mark 13:7-8 When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be frightened; those things must take place; but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.    –Jesus

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Luke 21:11. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

Is this Jesus referring to here and now of the early 21st century? If not, no big deal, life goes on.

If so, serious consequences. BIG TROUBLE for earthlings.

Think about it.

Millennial Kingdom:Geological/Geographical Implications;Greatest Earthquake Ever

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Millennial Kingdom, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 12, 2016 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. 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.
