“The Oil Flow”


The Oil flow…..

By Pastor F. M. Riley

July 1, 2010

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God,” Psalm 9:17.

“The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languiseth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth; and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left,” Isaiah 24:4-6.

Introduction

The title of this study needs no explanation.   The major topic on the news channels of America and much of the world since April 20, 2010 has been the “oil flow” in the Gulf of Mexico.

Over these past two months I have received many emails asking me if this disaster occurring in the Gulf has any “Biblical significance” to end-time prophecy?  At first I was hesitant to answer, because the full scope of this disaster was not immediately apparent and the PTB have done their best to keep it hidden from the public. But the Lord has explicitly stated in His inspired Word, “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest [unveiled; revealed]; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad,” Luke 8:17.

It is now obvious that what has occurred [and is still occurring] in the Gulf is a disaster which will ultimately affect every nation on earth. As more information on this disaster has surfaced and continues to surface, I can now say without hesitation that this “oil flow” is going to have Scriptural significance for the whole world.  This is what this  Bible study is about.  Join us for an enlightening study…..

Identifying the Problem

After two months of bald faced lies on the part of British Petroleum (BP), the Obama administration, and the morally bankrupt sickos in the liberal news media, the real truth about this OIL GUSHER is finally being revealed.

The Oil…….The first problem is the oil itself. Right after the (1) accident (2) sabotage (3) planned disaster [???] which started the oil gusher in the Gulf, the public was told that BP estimated there was probably 1,000 barrels of oil a day that was “leaking” out into the Gulf.  After some two months of listening to their lies, always dutifully repeated

1

by the dumb parrots in the liberal news media, it is now known that some 4 million gallons of oil are gushing out into the Gulf every day.  The so-called “spill” is really a gusher which some are even calling an “oil volcano” due to the amount of oil gushing out of the opening in the sea bed.  According to a number of different sources, approximately 40 percent of the water in the Gulf has now been replaced by oil.  Wow!

Where is all this oil going?  The ocean currents in the Gulf are now carrying the oil out of the Gulf and into the Atlantic Ocean.  The oil is being carried by the Atlantic currents up the east coast of the United States and is already spreading out into the Atlantic towards Europe.  Everywhere the oil goes the sea beds are being contaminated, and fish and other marine life are dying.  The professionals who study the ocean currents believe that this oil gushing from the sea floor in the Gulf will reach into and contaminate every ocean and sea in the entire earth within 18 to 24 months.  Folks, we are looking at a disaster which will have WORLD WIDE CONSEQUENCES.

The Chemicals……However, the oil itself is not the extent of the problem.  Flowing up out of the sea bed with the oil are numerous chemicals which are highly toxic [poison] and FLAMMABLE, foremost among them being Hydrogen Sulfide, Benzene, and Methylene Chloride. These chemicals will not only kill the sea life in the oceans of the world, but they will kill human beings, birds and animals, and plant life.  When mixed with water or heated by the Sun some of these chemicals become even more toxic than in their inert state.  When they emerge on to the surface the process of evaporation turns them into gases which become air borne.  Breathing these fumes is like breathing sickness and DEATH into one’s body.  When the right temperature is reached just a spark will cause the gases to EXPLODE in a gigantic fireball.

The Weather…….In the process of evaporation some oil and chemicals will be caught up into the atmosphere.  This will then return to the earth in the form of rain. Some areas around the Gulf are already experiencing this toxic rain which has a detrimental effect on humans, animals, birds, and vegetation.  Wherever this rain is falling, the vegetation is dying.  ALL OF IT!  Even the weeds!  It should be obvious to any thinking person that when this becomes widespread there will be a rain of death” that will kill off plants, animals, birds, and humans, and will cause WORLD WIDE FAMINE upon the earth.  Those who claim to believe in and fear God might do well to read Revelation 6:5-6 and Joel 1:15-20 RIGHT NOW

The Latest Discovery…….Now after nearly two months someone finally thought of checking the flow of oil coming up out of the sea bed for RADIATION.  In just the past two weeks we have finally learned that the oil flow in the Gulf is bringing up with it both URANIUM and THORIUM.  The amounts of these are FAR ABOVE what is considered “safe levels” for humans and other living creatures.  As if the people along the Gulf didn’t already have enough problems to worry about, the oil and chemicals pouring forth from the seabed are also contaminated with RADIO ACTIVE materials.  This uranium and thorium, far above safe levels, is also being carried by the oil flow and the currents in the sea.  Have you ever heard of “radiation sickness”?  No!  Well you will!

Examining the Background

2

The public has never been told the truth about oil!  Period!  We were taught as children in school that oil comes from organic matter which grew on the surface of the earth in the past.  Supposedly over BILLIONS OF YEARS this organic matter was turned under the surface of the earth by earthquakes.  The weight of the earth then crushed the oil out of the organic matter and formed pools of oil beneath the earth’s surface.  This FALSE TEACHING has served as one of the “crutches” that has aided the evolutionary scientists in explaining away the existence of Almighty God.  Now this claim has been revealed as A BALD FACED LIE on the part of these evolutionary scientists.  Guess who revealed it?  The bumbling scientists themselves!

Earth’s Age…….Folks, the claim that the earth is 4.5 billion years old is nothing but a bald faced lie.  The inspired Word of God DOES NOT give the exact age of the earth, but it certainly suggests that the earth is young, likely somewhere in the neighborhood of 7,000 to 12 thousand years old.  There are all kinds of evidences preserved in the earth itself which PROVE that our planet is young among the heavenly bodies of earth’s solar system.  I could say much more on this subject, but a treatise on the age of the earth is not the intent of this study.  I’ll leave that for another study at another time.

However, if you are willing to do the research, in the scientific publications written only four to five hundred years ago the “scientists” of those days “theorized” about the age of the earth.  Some of them wrote in obvious “awe,” that the earth “could be as much as 20,000 years old.” As time passed other “scientists” dared to suggest that earth might be 50,000 years old.   As more time passed, their guesses expanded.  As late as the 1700’s and even into the early 1800’s “scientists” wrote that the earth was “possibly” 100,000 years old.  As mankind passed into the 19th and 20th centuries, the LIE got bigger and the time span got longer in order to accommodate the rotten, stinking, blasphemous, teaching of atheistic evolution. So now these “all knowing” scientists today claim that the earth is 4.5 billion years of age.  Sic!  Talk about the nose on Pinocchio!  The last time I checked Psalm 14:1 was still in the Bible.  So is Revelation 21:8!

The Discovery…….Back in the late 1950’s and early 60’s some “scientists” in the oil industry began to suspect that what was commonly believed about oil being formed from organic sources was not correct.  This was because those in the oil industry could return years later to oil deposits which had previously been pumped bone dry, and they could once again pump oil from those same deposits.  It became obvious that the oil was being replenished from some source.  The source had to be deeper in the bowels of the earth, for the oil deposits obviously were not being replenished from the surface of the earth.

So in the 1970’s the nation of Russia began drilling deep wells in search of the real source of oil.  I mean DEEP WELLS.  I remember reading about one well that made news headlines back in the 1970’s that was over 40,000 feet in depth. That is some 8 miles down into the bowels of the earth.  The Russian drillers quickly learned that pressure at such depths is above anything mankind had ever previously encountered.   The Russians hit such high pressure in their deep drilling that on five different occasions the pressure caused the Russian wells to erupt into gushers of such force that they could not be controlled with any of man’s modern technology.  Russia experimented with those five wells, finally succeeding in stopping all five of the wells from flowing through the

3

use of NUCLEAR BOMBS.  However, keep in mind that all five of the deep wells drilled by Russia were on land.  None of them were drilled beneath the sea or ocean.

What the Russian drillers discovered in drilling their deep wells is a source of oil now called Abiotic oil.  This KIND of oil is only found deep in the bowels of the earth.  This Abiotic oil is not formed from organic matter, but rather is chemically created in the bowels of the earth under tremendous heat and pressure and is INEXHAUSTIBLE.  It is the oil that over a period of years, because heat from earth’s molten core causes all interior moisture to slowly gravitate upwards towards the surface of the earth, slowly refills the cavities in the earth where previous deposits of oil once existed but were totally pumped dry.  Amazing!  Yes, our God is amazing!  He has designed His creation to function in an amazing manner.  Just how amazing these atheistic scientists have yet to learn, BUT THEY WILL!

The Eternal Fires of Hell…….I want to digress in this study for a moment.  As a Christian believer who seriously STUDIES the inspired Word, I wondered for many years how the fires of hell and the lake of fire and brimstone could burn “for ever and ever” as a place of eternal punishment for the incorrigible wicked.  See Deuteronomy 32:22, Isaiah 5:14, 14:9, 34:9-10, 66:23-24, Matthew 5:29-30, Mark 9:42-49, Revelation 14:9-11, 19:20, 20:10, 20:14-15, and 21:8.

Now, I know I have at least part of the answer.  The discoveries of these atheistic scientists provide some insight for all those who truly believe God’s Word.  It is a fact that with every new “discovery” these atheistic scientists make, they are proving again and again the Word of God to be absolutely true. I am well aware that is not their intention, but they just can’t help themselves!  The Lord is still in charge!  Praise God!

Folks, Almighty God is the Master Chemist WHO created a chemical process in the bowels of the earth which continually replenishes THE OIL.  This inexhaustible source of oil will obviously fuel the fires of hell and the lake of fire and brimstone in order to keep them burning “for ever and ever,” Revelation 14:11. Is it just coincidence that “pitch,” a form of oil, is mentioned in the Scriptures in connection with the land of Egypt and the land of Edom?  Is it just coincidence that “pitch” is found today in the area around the Dead Sea where Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, and in the area around the ancient city of Babylon in the nation of Iraq?  Think about it!

The Real Story…….It is this deposit of Abiotic oil that the Russian drillers “discovered” in the 1970’s, which has since made Russia the world’s leading producer of oil.  It is also this deep underground source of Abiotic oil that British Petroleum was trying to locate when they began drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.  But the truth about this  is one of the things the public hasn’t been told…..

Neither BP nor the news media has told the public that BP contracted “secretly” with the U.S. government to drill this deep well.  This information has surfaced in just the last month.  Our government wanted to tap into this inexhaustible supply of Abiotic oil without the rest of the world knowing about it, so they hired BP to do the job. The government’s “secret” deal with BP has now brought upon humanity a WORLD DISASTER unlike anything which has occurred in human history since “the days of Noah.” Is this coincidence?  I think not!

The Prophetic Significance…..

I could share much more information about what is happening in the Gulf, but in order to keep this study as brief and to the point as possible I want to turn our attention to the Scriptural and prophetic significance of this disaster.  Read on…….

Man’s Departure…….Our text for this study explicitly states that “…all the nations that forget God” will be “…turned into hell…,” Psalm 9:17. Whether some want to believe this or not, this DOES include the United States of America.  In fact, it includes  ALL of the so-called “Christian” nations of the world, but since I was born and grew up in this country and it is my “earthly home,” it is the United States of America in particular that I have in mind as I write.

Folks, other than ancient Israel, no nation in human history has been so blessed as the United States of America.  Why?  Because it is a documented fact of our national history that this nation was founded upon the Judeo-Christian principles of God’s Word.  Right from the beginning of our history the American people [not the corrupt politicians] sought to live according to the principles of morality set forth in God’s Word. This general sense of Biblical morality in America continued right up until the beginning of the Second World War.  It was at that time…..

That the mothers and daughters of America left their homes to work in the “defense plants” building bombs, weapons, and other military equipment, while their husbands and fathers were away fighting the war.  Right then the “seeds” were sown that would lead to America’s future destruction.  Undermine the family and home and Satan will have succeeded in destroying everything in life that really matters, for it is Godly families and homes that hold any orderly society together.  The very first thing Almighty God Himself established after the creation of mankind was the home.  A real “home” is one man and one woman totally committed to love each other and to love God who has brought them together, exactly as portrayed by Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.  But what was the aftermath of the second world war…??

Out of the second World War came more prosperous times economically.  Women, now used to working in the factories and defense plants, left their homes and children to go into public work.  AND MOST STUPID MEN LOVED IT!  The extra income meant more money to blow on luxuries they didn’t need, and previously couldn’t afford. With the extra income brought in by women working outside the home, “the good life” had arrived. To hell with the children! Sadly, “hell” is exactly where millions of children and young people have gone, and are still going today, without the personal attention and guidance of a Godly and loving  mother in the home.

Then the divorce rate began to shoot up.  Women had learned during the war that they could support themselves and chart their own course.  They didn’t need a man around anymore!  So in the years following the war, and continuing right to this present day, the people in this country, both men and women, turned to flirting, lust, fornication, adultery, divorce, promiscuity, women’s lib, homosexuality, lesbianism, and the cold blooded, premeditated, MURDER of the innocent unborn.  Partying and pleasure and fun, fun, fun, have become the “norm” in America today, and “to hell” with God, the Bible, the church, Christianity, and especially those “fanatical Christians.”  Sic!   God have mercy!

5

In the now 65 years since the end of the second World War the people in this country  have turned their backs on the God of the Bible and have “gone a whoring” after the gods of this world; lusts, sex, pleasures, money, materialism, alcohol, drugs, etc.  This nation has “forgotten Godand now America is going to face the consequences whether the American people believe it or not! 

Hey!  If some readers do not like what I am saying, LUMP IT!  I have stated truth exactly as I personally watched it happen, and I have no apology to make to anyone!    I’m not writing to gain popularity, but to uphold truth!  If some readers don’t like what I have said, then they are “living examples” of how this wicked nation has turned their back on the truth of God’s Word and have gone off into apostasy.  Plain enough…?!?!?

God’s Accusation…….Now I want to call the attention of our readers to our second text for this study taken from Isaiah 24:4-6. These verses clearly speak of depletion of the soil [the earth mourning and fading away] and pollution of both the soil and the waters of the earth [defiled under the inhabitants].  Has this happened?  Is it still happening today?  Every honest reader knows the answers to these questions.

But why is it happening? In these inspired Scriptures Almighty God explicitly says that these things are happening “because…..the inhabitants of the earth…..have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.” What does the Lord mean by this accusation against humanity?  Let’s just see…..

“the laws”…….The English word “laws” in this verse is translated from the Hebrew word, “torah.” This refers to the Ten Commandments given to Moses at Mt. Sinai some 3,400 years ago.  These Ten Commandments given to Israel and the Jewish people still serve as the foundation upon which all moral, just, and righteous, human laws are based.  It is through respecting and observing these moral laws that mankind is enabled to live together in peace in a just and orderly society.  It is the ignoring and abandoning of these moral laws which bring sin, strife, war, and death upon mankind.

In Isaiah 24 Almighty God Himself accuses mankind of “defiling” the whole earth because humanity has today reached a point in human history when these moral laws are mocked and scorned, ignored and abandoned, and transgressed by most of mankind with no thought whatsoever of the consequences.  As a result the earth is once again “filled with violence” [Genesis 6:11] as it was in “the days of Noah” before the flood, Luke 17:26.

“the ordinance”…….The “ordinance” in this passage is referring to these same “laws” about which the Lord has just spoken.  However, the emphasis is not on the “ordinance,” but rather on the word “changed.” This word is translated from the Hebrew word, “halap.” This Hebrew word literally means “to change; to subvert; to corrupt; to by pass; to pierce; to cut through; to strike through; to alter; to abolish.” See Gesenius Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon, page 282, Strong’s No. 2498.  In other words, the Lord is accusing mankind living today [this is prophecy] of totally corrupting and subverting the whole purpose for which He gave moral and righteous laws to mankind.  Again listen to the Word, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight,” Isaiah

6

5:20-21. Isn’t this exactly what we see happening in the world around us today?  You know it is!  The governing bodies of the nations of the world today are making laws which are diametrically opposed to moral righteousness and justice.  No wonder God’s judgment is swiftly descending upon humanity!

“the everlasting covenant”…….The is the third accusation the Lord levels against mankind, explicitly stating that the earth is “defiled” because the “inhabitants thereof” have “broken the everlasting covenant.” What “covenant” is the Lord referring to in this verse?  Let’s see…..

According to the “law of first mention,” the first time the word “covenant” even occurs in the Bible is found in Genesis 6:18 where the Lord told Noah that He would “establish” His “covenant” with him.  After the flood Noah and his family, and all of the living creatures that were with them came out of the ark, Genesis 8:15-19. Noah then built an altar and offered up a sacrifice to the Lord.  Right at that point the Lord began  setting forth the terms of “the everlasting covenant” [9:12; 9:17] to Noah. This “everlasting covenant” is the subject being discussed from Genesis 9:1 through 9:17. Study these verses carefully, and take note of the terms of this covenant given to Noah and all mankind which should come after Noah. This is then the “everlasting covenant” that the Lord accuses mankind of violating in Isaiah 24:5.

Now what is in this covenant that has been so violated by mankind that Almighty God has decreed judgment upon all the inhabitants of the earth, Isaiah 24:2-6? Let’s see…..

The very first command set forth in this covenant in Genesis 9:1 and repeated a second time in 9:7 is, “…Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.” Since this was repeated twice it must be very important to the Lord. Hello!  Are you listening?

All the commands set forth by the Lord in this covenant are important, but it appears   that two of them are absolutely essential to the preservation of a just and orderly civilization upon the earth.  The second one is found in 9:6, “Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.” This is a direct command from God Almighty Himself for law abiding civilized men to execute capital punishment upon those of mankind who choose to murder their fellow human beings.  Study Numbers 35:9-34 and let the truth of God’s Word stated there soak in.

In view of these plainly stated commands set forth by the Lord Himself in His “everlasting covenant,” how has mankind upon the earth, especially mankind living today, regarded these explicit commands of the Lord?

Remember Roe vs Wade1973…Supreme Court ruling? Since the time that wicked ruling was handed down by the so-called “justices” [Sic!] of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, which “legalized abortion,” there has been an average of 5,000 innocent unborn babies callously MURDERED in this nation every single day.  Folks, that is nearly 68 MILLION innocent unborn babies whose lives have been brutally snuffed out over these past 37 years.  That is enough blood from the bodies of the innocent unborn to TURN THE GULF OF MEXICO BLOOD RED! Think about it!

Not only have the people of the United States of America committed this heinous crime against God and their own innocent unborn children, this wicked nation has INFECTED the entire world. America was the FIRST nation in modern times to “officially sanction” the killing of the innocent unborn. SHADES OF NAZI GERMANY!  Well, if “Christian” America could do it, then those nations who once looked to America

7

to set the standards of moral leadership for the whole world, felt justified in also doing it.

Since 1973 practically every nation on earth has followed the rotten, vile, stinking, example of this country.  Today even as I write multiplied THOUSANDS of innocent unborn children are being callously MURDERED in nearly every nation on earth, and the hands of America are dripping with their blood.

If you really want to know what Almighty God thinks about “legalized abortion” [Sic!], read 2 Kings 21:16, 24:4, Psalm 106:37-40, Isaiah 57:5, 59:7, Jeremiah 2:33-34, 19:3-5, and Ezekiel 16:20-21. In view of this GLARING TRUTH, every time I hear one of these “gung ho” Christians or Patriots loudly proclaiming “God Bless America!” I want to puke! WHY SHOULD GOD BLESS A NATION WHOSE HANDS ARE DRIPPING WITH THE BLOOD OF THE INNOCENT UNBORN?  Why..??  Well…?? Justify it if you can!  I want you to!  I love this nation!  I was born here, grew up here, and still live here, and I GRIEVE OVER WHAT THIS NATION HAS BECOME.  We Americans, and yes we Christian believers in this country, figuratively speaking, every single day wade through the blood of the innocent unborn who have been callously murdered in this country for the past 37 years.  Yet the American people have the UNMITIGATED GALL to ask God to bless our country?  One thing I know for certain, all of the HYPOCRITES didn’t live in ancient Israel.  God have mercy!

It is also a glaring truth that nearly every nation on earth today has abolished capital punishment.” The prisons in this country are filled with people on “death row” who will NEVER be executed for their brutal crimes.  The wicked politicians and equally wicked judges in this country today have become so enthralled with listening to jug headed “sociologists” explain “human behavior,” that they no longer retain any sense of COMPASSION OR JUSTICE for the victims. Oh no! Rather, the whole judicial system today is geared to show pity for and protect “the poor misunderstood criminal” who probably was raised in a “poor home” and had “such a miserable childhood” that he [or she] just lashed out against humanity and killed someone.  Sic!  Sic!  Sic!  I’m not real impressed with this “honey bucket” of philosophy issuing forth from most sociologists and psychiatrists today.  It is obvious from the inspired Word that the Lord isn’t either!

The Terrible Consequences…….In Isaiah 24:6 the Lord explicitly states, “Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth ARE BURNED, and few men left.”

The word “therefore,” occurring twice in this verse, clearly indicates that mankind’s willful transgression of “the laws,” their changing of “the ordinance,” and their breaking of “the everlasting covenant,” will result in “the inhabitants of the earth” being “burned.” Further, the inspired Word tells us that there will be “few men left.” In other words, the present population of the earth is going to be vastly reduced during the coming

Tribulation period BY FIRE, just as the population of the earth was reduced in “the days of Noah” BY WATER, 2 Peter 3:3-7. There will be so many people burned during the swiftly approaching Tribulation period, that the inspired prophecies tell us that the survivors of the Tribulation will literally walk on the ashes of the wicked.  See Ezekiel 28:18 and Malachi 4:1-3. Read it for yourself!

Folks, whether some want to believe it or not, this most definitely includes the United States of America.  In fact, events occurring in the world RIGHT NOW may indicate

8

that the “burning” of the wicked could very well begin with the destruction by fire of the United States of America.  What do I mean?  Well let’s see…..

The Future Tribulation Period

A few weeks ago I sent out to our readers a study entitled, “Rightly Dividing the Revelation.” I followed that study up with another study entitled, “After…..” In both of these studies I clearly set forth the order in which the judgments of the Tribulation are to be poured out upon the earth, and backed up [proved] every point I made with book, chapter, and verse, exactly as 1 Thessalonians 5:21 commands God people [true believers] to do.  I have been given NO SCRIPTURAL REASON whatsoever to change my mind on what I wrote.  PERIOD!

I mention this to emphasize that shortly after the beginning of the Tribulation the Seven Trumpets of Revelation 8 will begin to “sound.” Here is what is recorded about the sounding of the very first trumpet:

“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,” Revelation 8:7. [King James Version]

“And the first angel sounded [his] trumpet; and there was hail and fire mingled with blood, and it was cast upon the earth: and the third part of the earth was burnt up, and all the green grass was burnt up,” 8:7. [GLTTrAW]

“The first angel blew [his] trumpet, and there was a storm of hail and fire mingled with blood, cast upon the earth.  And a third part of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees was burned up and all the green grass was burned up,” 8:7. [Amplified Bible]

“The first blew his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood which were poured on the earth.  And a third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees, and all the green grass,” 8:7. [New Testament in the Language of Today]

“The first angel blew his trumpet.  Then hail and fire mixed with blood was poured down on the earth.  And a third of the earth and all the green grass and a third of the trees were burned up,” 8:7. [The Everyday Bible]

Do I need to list anymore versions of Scripture to drive home the point I am making?  All of these versions and others I could list make it clear that shortly after the beginning of the Tribulation one third of the earth will be burned up. This means that every nation and people in that particular one third of the earth which is burned up will cease to exist as nations and peoples during the remainder of the Tribulation period.  Hello!  Do I have your attention yet?

Which One-Third…??

9

Let’s begin answering this question by the process of elimination. Take a world globe and divide the land masses of the earth into three equal parts by drawing three straight lines from the top of the globe [the North Pole] down to the bottom of the globe [the South Pole]. Now go to your Bible and see which one third of the earth is NEVER mentioned in the prophecies dealing with “the day of the Lord” [Tribulation].  While  checking this out in your Bible, also carefully notice which two-thirds of the earth are repeatedly mentioned in the prophecies dealing with the Tribulation in the end-time.   Scriptural light should begin to break forth…..

Folks, where in the end-time prophecies of the Bible is the United States mentioned?    I mean clearly enough that there can be no question about identifying it!  Where is Canada mentioned?  Where is Mexico mentioned?  Where is Central and South America mentioned?  Where are any of the nations of this “western hemisphere” mentioned in the end-time prophecies dealing with the Tribulation?  Where?

Don’t bother sending me your “opinion” or “theory.” Don’t bother sending me “George Washington’s [supposed] vision. [Barf!]  I’m serious about searching for the truth of end-time prophecy.  I want book, chapter, and verse please, where these nations of the “western hemisphere” can be clearly identified as fulfilling a significant role in the   prophecies of the Tribulation. Where is this found in God’s Word?   Well…??

If one pays careful attention to the prophecies which deal with the Tribulation period,  the nations and peoples which do fulfill Tribulation prophecy CAN be identified…..

(1)       The nations of Europe are mentioned.  “Gomer, and all his bands” are a reference to the related Germanic races of Europe, Ezekiel 38:6.

(2)       The British Isles and their extended colonies are mentioned.  “Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof,” Ezekiel 38:13. In ancient times “Tarshish” referred to the British Isles, whose ships sailed all over the known world.  To this day British sailors are still referred to as “Tars.” 

(3)       The nations of the Middle East and northern Africa are repeatedly mentioned in so many places that I don’t need to labor the point. Israel, Egypt, Libya, and Ethiopia are repeatedly mentioned.  Likewise Lebanon, Syria, Arabia, Edom, Moab, and the land of the Ammonites [modern Jordan] are repeatedly mentioned. 

(4)       The nation of Turkey which bridges the gap between Europe and Asia has a significant role to play in the end-time prophecies.  “…the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands,” Ezekiel 38:6.

(5)       The nations of Persia [modern Iran] and Babylon [modern Iraq] are both

repeatedly mentioned in the end-time prophecies.

(6)   The nation of Russia and “all the families of the north” are easily identified  in

the prophecies of Ezekiel 38 – 39 and also in other prophetic passages. 

(7)     The nations of Asia are mentioned.   “…the  kings of the east [Greek…from the

rising sun] in Revelation 9:14-19 and 16:12.

This list accounts for the nations of Europe, Asia, and Africa, which was the whole known world in ancient times.  The nations of the western hemisphere were nothing but “legends” in the minds of people from the known world up until their actual discoveries and exploration beginning as late in the history of the nations as “1492 when Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”

We can find all of the nations and continents listed above in the prophetic Scriptures dealing with the end-time.  But where do we find the nations of the “western hemisphere” in the end-time prophecies dealing with the Tribulation period?  Where?

In order to drive home the point, let’s do one more little experiment.  We have already pointed out that Isaiah 24:6 explicitly states that because of man’s wickedness upon the earth in these last days “…therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.”

Now notice that Isaiah 24:14-16 states, “They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea.  Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea. From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous…” Obviously these songs of glory and praise to the Lord are being sung by those who will have survived these fires. The fact that there will be survivors and that they will acknowledge and give praise to the Lord for their survival is significant in itself.  But notice the location from which this singing of praises to the Lord is coming…..

Take your globe again and place a finger on Israel as the starting point, for all of the prophecies of God’s Word came forth from Israel and the fulfillment of the prophecies  ultimately relates back to Israel in some way, Deuteronomy 32:8. Now turn the globe and find the spot which is directly on the opposite side of the earth from Israel.  That spot represents “the uttermost part of the earth” from the nation of Israel.  Now where is it?

If you follow the instructions, the spot you locate directly on the opposite side of the earth from Israel will be in the ocean, with the nearest land mass being THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  Hello!  Is light breaking through yet?

Back to the Oil Gusher…..

If any reader hasn’t noticed, the entire world is paying attention to the oil flowing from the Gulf of Mexico because this “runaway” oil flow has the potential of at least temporarily wiping out agriculture and vegetation over the whole earth, as well as killing off massive amounts of sea life.  This would immediately create a world wide food shortage followed by world famine.  The real truth about what is happening in the Gulf has already been reported on by the news media in Europe, Asia, and Africa, while the liberal American news media has been feeding the American people a steady diet of lies, lies, and more lies.  For instance…..

Weeks ago the leading Russian newspaper, PRAVDA, published an editorial  predicting that the entire eastern half of the United States would become a desert, due to the prevailing winds carrying toxic rain east and north from the Gulf.  This toxic rain, according to their editorial, will destroy all the agriculture and vegetation in the eastern half of the U.S., even including weeds, and the United States will simply cease to exist as a nation.  Is this really possible?  Let’s see what God’s inspired Word says…..

The Present Scenario

I have received loads of information about what is occurring in the Gulf.  Admittedly,

11

some of this information is only rumor being circulated by unreliable sources.  But other “leaks” revealing the glaring truth have come from highly reliable sources; people who know exactly what they are talking about, who themselves are frightened, and are desperately trying to warn the American people.

In reality, the Gulf oil flow is uncontrolled and uncontrollable.  As already pointed out in this study, not only is oil gushing from the sea bed with uncontrollable pressure, but it is also bringing up with it Hydrogen Sulfide, Benzene, Methylene Chloride, and Uranium and Thorium, all of which are highly toxic [poison] and flammable.  Then the BP idiots “supposedly” working to stop the oil flow have been adding to this lethal mixture, millions of gallons of CorExit 9500, a dispersant supposed to dilute the oil. This dispersant is also highly toxic [killing humans] and flammable, killing fish and other sea creatures and plant life, and it becomes even more toxic and flammable when evaporated into gaseous form by the heat of the Sun.

Add to this the fact that cracks which were already in the sea floor when BP began drilling their deep well are now enlarging and new cracks are developing daily, releasing not only more oil but large quantities of Methane gas.  It has become public knowledge that BP drilled their deep well directly over a huge bulge in the sea floor, the bulge being  caused by Methane gas trapped under the sea floor.  BP was aware of this bulge in the sea floor and knew exactly what was causing the bulge years before they began drilling, and yet chose to drill in that location anyway.

Now all of these chemicals are evaporating on the surface of the sea, and are being carried by the prevailing winds EASTWARD and NORTHWARD from the Gulf, and UPWARDS into the clouds above the Gulf.    Odors from these gaseous chemicals have already been reported in some places as far inland as 100 miles, and according to tests made with sensitive detection instruments minute quantities of these gases have been detected in some places as far inland as 200 miles.

So what has really been created in the Gulf, and which continues to grow more deadly with every passing day, is a GIGANTIC BOMB.  The size of this BOMB will be just as large outwards and upwards as wherever these highly flammable chemicals and gases are carried by the prevailing winds.  God have mercy!

Due to this situation, plans are already in the works by the U.S. government for the MANDATORY EVACUATION of the entire Gulf coast area. Why hasn’t this been  reported to the public by the main line news media in this country?  Sic!   If any reader doesn’t know the answer to that question, then just go back to sleep!  You are likely  “half dead” in “trespasses and sins” [Ephesians 2:1] and really need salvation!

Since word of this coming evacuation has now “leaked out,” the PTB have decided to “tone it down.”  They fear a general uprising of the people and all out civil war.  So now they have decided to begin the evacuation by “regions,” while telling the public that they are “forced to do it to protect the public.” Anything rotten the politicians do, they always want to come out of it “smelling like heroes.” Sic!  So now the first “region” to be forcibly evacuated will be the immediate area along the Gulf coast from Corpus Christi, Texas to Panama City, Florida and only a few miles inland.  Once they have successfully achieved this first “relocation” of the people without too much resistance, then they will “bite off another chunk,” and then another and another and another. This is the way Satan and his crowd has always worked; a little at a time.

The “Potential” Future Scenario

God’s inspired Word explicitly states in Revelation 8:7 that when the First Trumpet sounds “…hail and fire mingled with blood…” are “…cast upon the earth: and the third part of the earth was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”

Isn’t this exactly what is predicted in the prophecy transliterated by Peter on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2:19“and I will show wonders [miraculous signs] in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke: the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:…”

Every true believer who seriously studies and believes the prophecies knows that “signs” have been showing up in the heavens since the beginning of this present 21st century, but over the past two to three years these “signs” have greatly increased. This same thing can be said about “…signs in the earth beneath…” Some of the greatest earthquakes in human history have occurred since the beginning of this present century, and more are occurring with nearly every passing day.

Immediately after Peter said, “…signs in the earth beneath;” he then added an inspired description of such “signs,” “…blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke…” This is the exact thing that John predicted to be “…cast upon the earth…” in Revelation 8:7 at the sounding of the First Trumpet.  Is this just coincidence?  Think about it!

Is it then also “just coincidence” that what is occurring in the Gulf RIGHT NOW has the potential to fulfill both of these prophecies to the letter?  Well…??

RIGHT NOW the entire Gulf coast area [a thousand plus miles east to west and almost that width north to south] is filled with oil and chemicals, and highly flammable fumes from the chemicals.  The oil is also flammable when the right temperature and source of flame is applied to set it off.  Now guess what our illustrious politicians are seriously contemplating doing to stop the flow of oil?  They are now seriously discussing  exploding A NUCLEAR BOMB at the bottom of the sea in an effort to stop the flow of oil from the sea bed.  Oh, yes they are!

The Russian government has been urging the United States to take such action before all the seas and oceans of the earth are contaminated.  As recently as yesterday [June 29th] former President Bill Clinton made a speech shown on national TV urging the Obama administration to shut off the flow of oil with A NUCLEAR BOMB and thereby  “save the world.”  Sic!  Sic!  [That’s a double sic!]

Is this a good idea?   Keep in mind that the floor of the sea bed is already fractured and is leaking both oil and methane gas in numerous places.  Keep in mind that a gigantic methane gas bubble is trapped under the sea floor and is actually causing the sea floor to bulge upward under the pressure being exerted upon it by the trapped methane.  So what could actually happen if a NUCLEAR BOMB was exploded under these conditions? Rather than stopping the flow of oil, the nuclear bomb could break up the sea floor releasing in an instant all of the methane gas trapped there?  Think about it!

Dear readers, there exists RIGHT NOW a potential for an explosion unlike any previous explosion in all of human history.  The explosion of the NUCLEAR BOMB could easily produce the high temperature and “spark” necessary to ignite all of the oil

13

and the toxic chemicals and flammable gases in the entire Gulf of Mexico [don’t forget the radiation] and the surrounding area, turning the entire area into one GIGANTIC EXPLOSION AND FIRESTORM that could literally “wipe out” this entire western hemisphere.  Every city, town, village, home, and combustible structure would instantly  explode into flames.

Further, Such an explosion would literally shake the entire earth.  There is no question in my mind that the shock wave from the explosion would set off the New Madrid fault along the Mississippi River, the San Andreas fault along the west coast, the Yellowstone super volcano caldera in Wyoming, and the Lord only knows how many more fault lines and volcanoes in this country and around the whole earth. Every man made dam in this country would be destroyed releasing hundreds of millions of gallons of water  to go roaring down river beds destroying everything in their path.  Such an explosion would also create a tsunami [tidal wave] in the Gulf hundreds of feet high that would sweep inland over the U.S., Mexico and Central America, Cuba and the Caribbean islands, and even over parts of South America.  IN ONE TERRIBLE 24 HOUR PERIOD THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WOULD CEASE TO EXIST, and very likely all of the nations in the whole “western hemisphere” would also be destroyed at the same time. MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY AND THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE WESTERN HEMISPHERE WOULD DIE!

Also the entire earth would be plunged into TOTAL DARKNESS as the upper atmosphere of the earth was filled with smoke from the initial explosion and from a million fires kindled throughout the western hemisphere of the earth.  This smoke would  totally block out the light of the Sun for ????? days.  God only knows!

Impossible you say!  It can’t happen!  Surely Almighty God would not even allow something like this to happen!  Why would the Lord allow something like this to occur?  Why..??  Because there are wicked men living on this earth today who insist on “playing God” rather than submitting themselves to God. The gullible public looks up to these wicked men as “great leaders” of the world, and obediently and blindly follows their “leadership” instead of looking to the Lord God of Heaven who created them. THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO PAY for such blind devotion, exaltation, and worship of wicked men, rather than worshiping and serving the God who created man.  Read Isaiah 24:1-6 again.  In fact, carefully read Revelation 8:7 again and ask the Lord to give you the “faith” to believe His Word.  Your eternal destiny may very well depend upon it!   And while you are reading, read Isaiah 45:21-23.

Conclusion

What I have set before my readers in this study is not some event months or years away which may or may not occur.  I have set before our readers A WORLD DISASTER which is taking place RIGHT NOW.  With every tick of the clock and every passing day this situation in the Gulf is becoming steadily worse.  Tomorrow it will be worse than it is today.  At some point VERY SOON “critical mass” is going to be reached, and then all of humanity on earth will have “hell to pay.”

Are things going to work out exactly according to the “potential scenario” which I have set forth in this study?  I DO NOT KNOW!  I make no claim of knowing!  What I

14

have set before our readers in this study is a possible fulfillment of prophecies which the Lord Himself in His inspired Word explicitly states WILL COME TO PASS.  Whether the Lord uses this Gulf oil disaster to fulfill these prophecies remains to be seen.  But seeing how close the prophecies appear to harmonize with this present crisis in the Gulf, are you willing to risk your eternal soul on the outcome?  Well…???

Folks, there is ONLY ONE SURE WAY out of this present mess, and that “way” is “straight up” through the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.  Every true believer who is seriously studying the prophecies of God’s Word KNOWS that we are living right at the end of this present dispensation.  The Lord could come at any moment of any hour of any day now to rapture His people to glory.  And He will come, Revelation 3:10. When He comes, will you be ready?  Think about it!

Do you have assurance that you have been cleansed and saved from sin through the “saving grace” of the Lord Jesus Christ?  A personal experience of saving grace is the ONLY WAY anyone will ever be “accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man,” Luke 21:36; 20:35-36; Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 3:5; Acts 16:30-31; 20:21;  Romans 10:8-13; John 5:24.

If any reader needs spiritual help, either for salvation or for assurance of salvation, please contact me.  I know Him who is “the way, the truth, and the life,” John 14:6. It would be my joy and blessing to introduce you to Him.

May God grant to every reader His grace and mercy is my prayer.
