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.

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.

No More Mountains

Geography Changes Coming…

Isaiah 2:1-2 Here is the message about Judah and Jerusalem that was revealed to Isaiah son of Amoz.In the future the mountain of the Lord’s temple will endure as the most important of mountains, and will be the most prominent of hills.

v. 1 Judah is the area or region around Jerusalem. During Isaiah’s time, it is roughly the area between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. In today’s world, this would be central and southern Israel. Israel was divided into two kingdoms. The southern kingdom was referred to as Judah.

v.2 The geography of verse two would suggest the temple will be located at the top of the tallest mountain. Modern day Jerusalem is approximately 2500 feet above sea level. There are hills and mountains in the region that are higher than 2500 feet. Let alone there are mountain ranges around the world that top 14000 feet…
