Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes…

Anchorage, Alaska, November 30, 2018:  7.0 magnitude and 5.7 magnitude earthquakes have struck in Alaska. Approximately 250 quakes of 2.5 magnitude or greater have hit the area in the last day.

Alaska Governor Bill Walker has issued a disaster declaration and state of emergency. Roads are damaged. Thousands are without electricity. Gas and oil lines are being inspected. President Trump has declared a state of emergency as well.

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

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.

Trend Update: Yellowstone Tremors, June 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 27, 2017 by paulthepoke

 

Psalm 46:6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.

Significant seismic activity is a characteristic of the end time scenario. The activity in Yellowstone Park is not.

June 2017: A swarm of earthquakes has recently hit the Yellowstone super caldera in Wyoming. Depending on various reports, up to 800 quakes have taken place. The largest reported tremor was 4.5 magnitude on the Richter Scale. The series of events was noted as “green” by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2017/06/26/scientists-confirm-yellowstone-supervolcano-was-hit-by-a-450-earthquakes-in-one-week/#512d67b93e87

Predictably, the experts state that Yellowstone is not in danger of a massive eruption. However, the US government is taking the following precautions??? Caution, conspiracy theories are alive and well!

Allegedly, NASA has launched its Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) to monitor the Yellowstone Caldera. At the least, SOFIA has been seen flying over the area.

sofia

The following description is per NASA. Built into a converted Boeing 747SP, SOFIA’s 2.5-meter (8.2-foot)-diameter telescope will make it the world’s largest and most sensitive airborne observatory. Flying at 39,000 to 45,000 feet, it will enable scientific observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest of Earth-based telescopes. Peering out through an open cavity in the side of the aircraft, the telescope will allow astronomers to obtain sharper infrared images than ever before. The astronomers, technicians, engineers, educators, and flight crew will work in a comfortable airliner environment during a typical eight-to-nine-hour flight.

One conspiracy theory has the United States offering billions of dollars to other countries for relocation of citizens in case of a massive event. The plan reportedly has US citizens being sent to Australia, Brazil, and Argentina. The relocation plan allegedly was signed, sealed, and delivered in 2014.

Do your own homework and verify.

One way or another, there is a lot of hot air being released…

Millennial Kingdom: Geological/Geographical Implications

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Millennial Kingdom, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , on May 29, 2016 by paulthepoke

Revelation 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 series 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 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 (early 21st century, May 2016) has not seen an earthquake that has caused continents to initiate movement and drifting. Modern day maps and globes will be obsolete.

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.

Trend Update: Quakes in Various Places, May 2016

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).

There are at least 7 references to earthquakes in the book of Revelation alone. The beast of all historical earthquakes is to take place in 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.

The end result of this earthquake is Revelation 16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. These passages are suggestive of significant, changed geography of planet Earth. No more islands, no more mountains! What we are seeing now is a starter kit.

Earthquake activity has recently picked up in the Holy Land. Starting May 15, 2016, quakes have been noted on the fault line running through the Red Sea north towards Israel. Earthquakes were noted in Egypt (5.1) and southern Israel (4.8).

Seismic and volcanic activity is picking up around the globe. New activity/unrest was observed at 4 volcanoes between May 4 and 10, 2016. Continued activity was reported for 19 volcanoes. On May 16, 2016, five volcanoes erupted on the same day.

The US Federal Government has a preparedness exercise scheduled for June 7-10, 2016 called Cascadia Rising. The focus is the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Here is the opening paragraph from FEMA.

A 9.0 magnitude earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) and the resulting tsunami is the most complex disaster scenario that emergency management and public safety officials in the Pacific Northwest could face. Cascadia Rising is an exercise to address that disaster.

By the way, Oklahoma continues to be the most earthquake prone in the United States…
