In this video of Mr. Gary Stearman and Mr. Brent Miller they cover the sen seals and trumpets using the lens of modern science to give a detailed and very believing explanation of the difficult to comprehend apocalyptic literature.
The book of Revelation comes to live in this excellent lecture by Mr. Brent Miller in terms that are not only possible but almost certain to occur as explained.
It is a terrible scenario to contemplate being alive at this period of time that is at the door already.
Jesus is the only path to salvation and safety from the wrath to come. Repent and call on His name as your Lord and Savior and He will deliver you.
May 1, 2014 Prophecy conference interview with Bill Salus, Gary Stearman, host Jack Hibbs Part 1-Part 2
Very interesting interview with four knowledgeable Bible prophecy scholars. The questions and answers are important for the proper interpretation of prophecy and the times we live in.
There are so many prophetically predicted events happening in our world that the people who care for the prophetic Word are left amazed of the things we see and how God is choreographing the whole flow of History to fulfill His prophetic Word 100 %.
Three very important things were discussed in both parts that I think are interrelated one to the other. The book of Revelation, the Blood Moons and the prophecy of Daniel 9 of the seventy weeks.
Daniel 9 is a prophecy that spans the time of the first coming and the second coming as well as the complete restoration of the Nation of Israel as the head of the Nations of the world and God’s people. The first 69 weeks of years were fulfilled to the day with the crucifixion of Jesus. At that point a gap is introduced that leaves one week of years for the future. This week is the Apocalypse to be as yet fulfilled.
The tetrad of blood moons can be linked to the Book of Daniel 9 by the fact that the blood moons fall in Passover- Sukkot 2014 and Passover- Sukkot 2015. These two festivals of Passover and Sukkot each have the potential of being the start of the Tribulation. One has passed three are coming. See article linked below.
As earthquakes, volcano’s activity and upheavals in nature are part of the prophetic writings that will be present in the end times this news is of importance. In the past some scientific reports have said that a volcanic eruption in the El Hierro volcano can trigger a great earth slide into the ocean that could produce a mega tsunami that would reach the Atlantic coasts of the USA with disastrous consequences.
New eruption may be brewing at El Hierro volcano in Canary Islands
17 hours ago
Two years after a new underwater volcano appeared offshore of El Hierro in the Canary Islands, earthquake swarms and a sudden change in height suggest a new eruption is brewing near the island’s villages, officials announced Friday (Dec. 27).
After the announcement, one of the largest temblors ever recorded at the volcanic island, a magnitude-5.1 earthquake, struck offshore of El Hierro at 12:46 p.m. ET (5:46 p.m. local time) Friday, the National Geographic Institute reported. Residents on the island reported strong shaking, and the quake was felt throughout the Canary Islands, according to news reports. The earthquake’s epicenter was 9 miles (15 kilometers) deep.
Before the earthquake struck early Friday afternoon, the island’s volcano monitoring agency, Pelvolca, had raised the volcanic eruption risk for El Hierro to “yellow.” This warning means that activity is increasing at the volcano, but no eruption is imminent. A similar burst of activity prompted a yellow warning in June 2012, but the volcano soon quieted down.
Parts of El Hierro have swelled nearly 3 inches (7 centimeters) in the past week, with the growth centered between El Pinar and La Restinga, according to Involcan, the Volcanological Institute of the Canaries.
More than 550 earthquakes rattled the island between Monday and Wednesday, also centered on La Restinga. About 30 of the earthquakes were greater than magnitude 3, Involcan said. The earthquakes are triggered by magma rising underground, fracturing rocks and swelling the surface as the hot rock reaches upward. “The earthquake swarm corresponds to a new magmatic intrusion,” Involcan said Friday morning in a statement.
Friday’s preliminary magnitude-5.1 earthquake was on the opposite side of the island from the ongoing swarm.
El Hierro was the site of a spectacular underwater volcanic eruption in 2011, which severely affected island fisheries and forced islanders to evacuate.
Earthquakes and volcano’s are just some of the signs the Bible tells us that they will increase in frequency and intensity. Links found in http://www.raptureready.com/rapnews_db.php
July 22, 2013 – JAPAN – A strong vulcanian explosion occurred last night at 11:02 GMT (20:02 local time), following several hours of near complete calm at the volcano. A loud cannon-shot bang accompanied the explosion, which generated a large mushroom cloud that reached 12,000 ft (3.7 km) altitude and engulfed the NE half of the Sakurajima peninsula and was followed by several smaller ones within about half an hour. The volcano and much of the surrounding areas remained under the ash plume for several hours until it started to clear up again. In the hours after the explosion, the Showa crater continued to emit ash plumes in often near-continuous pulses, sometimes reaching several 100 m height, but with no visible incandescence or audible sounds. –Volcano Discovery
Large explosions at Ecuador volcano: An increase of activity occurred yesterday. IGPEN recorded 3 strong pulses of volcanic tremor since midnight 20-21 July (local time), which were accompanied by strombolian activity and strong explosions that produced loud roars, heavy gunfire sounds, and vibrations that rattled floors, windows and doors of houses in areas nearby. Some were heard even in the Tungurahua Volcano Observatory (OVT), located 14 km north of the volcano. The largest explosion yesterday at 14h18 (local time) generated an eruption column of 5 km height moving east. Although so far there have been no new pyroclastic flows, this could likely happen in the near future. Ash fall occurred in the area of Manzano, Choglontus, Tisaleo, Cevallos and Mapayacu. In between the explosions, constant strombolian activity with the ejection of incandescent bombs, some of which rolled down the slopes could be seen at night. The explosions caused considerable damage to some of the monitoring instruments (solar panels, cameras etc.). –Volcano Discovery
Luis Vega has written many good articles that were submitted to http://www.fivedoves.com for posting. This article is a very good explanation of the things that are described in the book of Revelations starting with the first seal.
A link is given for a chart that illustrates in great detail what is in the article. the 3rd to the 6th seal are not correct and the reader should check the Bible for the correct rendition. None the less this article is very good.

“The Coming Wrath of the Lamb – Judgments of Jesus Christ after the Rapture“
The Coming Wrath of the Lamb
Judgments of Jesus Christ after the Rapture
A possible correlation of an impending Super Solar Flare, Pole Shift & Asteroids to come
By Luis B. Vega

And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come. -1 Thessalonians 1:10
This study seeks to highlight & illustrate 3 possible impending calamities that will occur on Earth according to some interpretations of the Book of Revelation. They are set to occur, in the not too distant future, after the Rapture. These events specifically have to do with intensifying Solar Flares, the increasing Near Earth Objects (NEO) headed toward Earth & the changing Magnetic Pole. What is alarming is that the current & observable patterns of what is happening now with the Sun, Earth & NEOs appear to give credence to such possible apocalyptic calamities. Given the Law of Probability, it is not only a matter of time; of not if but when one or all these events will occur.
This study suggests that these 3 events, in particular, appear to correlate to 3 divine Scroll Judgments from the Book of Revelation. The magnitude of such events leads one to theorize that perhaps such events could indeed constitute the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ that the LORD will pour out on a rebellious ‘Last Generation’–according to what the Book of Revelation depicts. These astronomical scenarios presented are only suggesting a possible speculated Biblical correlation. Some interpret that the sequence of these Scroll Judgments of the ‘Lamb’ will happen nonetheless sometime in the Last Days but before Jesus’ Return to Earth to set up His Earthly Kingdom.
This rationale is also coming from the perspective that these divine & catastrophic judgments will happen in the natural world after the Rapture. The Bible clearly states that Christ promised that His Church would be spared from such type of ‘Wrath’. This illustration will thus focus on 3 of the primary Scroll Judgments of Revelation that will deal with the Sun, the Earth & the Oceans. It will be a time when the vengeance of the LORD will be brought about by Jesus to a Christ-rejecting world. Christ will execute Righteous Judgment upon a world that has rejected His love, forgiveness & authority.
Many End Times Biblical researchers believe that if these particular cataclysmic events will occur after the Rapture, then such catastrophic events are to occur during what will constitute the Tribulation Period at some point in time. The Book of Revelation speaks of people that will be saved during this Tribulation Period. The LORD will still extend this favor & grace during this horrific time despite the Righteous Judgments that will befall upon the world.
No doubt, Christians in that timeframe of the Tribulation Period will be targeted as the culprits of such divine judgments. It will be a very high price to pay to be associated or have allegiance to Jesus Christ; it will lead to inevitable persecution & death because the cataclysmic events will be attributed to the Christian ‘Lamb’, Jesus Christ. The Book of Revelation even specifically states that the people hiding in underground caves will realize & acknowledge that such calamities are coming from the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ & that they are part of His Wrath.
The Book of Revelation
According to the Book of Revelation, the Divine Wrath of Jesus Christ is coming to Earth; upon a Christ-rejecting humanity. These judgments, in their consummation are directed towards the last years of this current world age. This is the case because thereafter the Millennial Kingdom of Christ is to be established on Earth. As the Last Generation is coming into focus, we can ascertain the likelihood of the effects of such scenarios that are affecting the Sun, Earth & Oceans given what we know about science & statistical probability. A possible deciphering of the 1st century language & imagery used to describe the 3 scenarios can now be described and/or explained in modern scientific terms; these include:
1) a Super Solar Flare
2) Asteroids striking the Earth
3) a Pole Shift
Although the Seals were ‘broken’ in Glory devoid of time & space, the prophetic applications can be said to have an immediate, concurrent & futuristic fulfillments. The Scroll of Seals that is revealed in the Book of Revelation is a progressive unveiling of judgments. It is specifically comprised of multifaceted components of Christ’s Righteous Judgments. In a general overview, the sequence of the Judgments are comprised into 7 Seals, that lead to 7 Trumpets & culminate in 7 Bowls; a 7-7-7 numerical combination. The 3 particular calamities or elements to be highlighted in this essay are but a part of the total & complete Wrath of the Lamb Scroll Judgments.
The Bible depicts that Jesus Christ as the Lamb of God will use these element, the Sun, Earth & Asteroids -among others for horrific judgments, ‘upon those that dwell on the Earth’ per Rev 3:10. In the metaphorical language of the Book of Revelation, it describes a future time when the Sun will be so intense, people will curse GOD because of the scorching heat & fire. It further describes a time when EVERY island, mountain & land will be shaken from its foundation. This is due to an earthquake so huge, it levels cities across the globe –all at once as the Earth’s plates are convulsing or shifting. The description goes on to declare that 2 ‘stars’ or Asteroids will impact the Earth; one is as big as a mountain like a ‘mill stone’ will be crashing into an Earth’s ocean & the other will be like a ‘blazing star’. The Blazing Star or ‘wormwood’ perhaps will strike land.
the Lamb of GOD
The Bible declares that there had to be a price paid for the human offense of sin against a Holy & Righteous Creator. Before Calvary, God instructed mankind to use unblemished & pure lambs & bulls as literal metaphorical sacrifices in place of a sinner. The blood of such animals did not -nor could wash away or ‘pay’ for a sin of a person. Such ordinances were used for example, in Israel’s divine service to illustrate an object lesson. The life’s blood was required to atone; such animal sacrifices could only ‘cover’ but not plot out the stain of sin, much less provide eternal salvation & security for a person. Such an object lesson was set to teach that ultimately, GOD’s standard & only acceptable method of plotting out the sins of humanity was for a perfect, pure & sinless human representative to be willing & available to be a substitutionary agent.
GOD worked out a divine plan to have such a pure, blameless & sinless human representative for the fallen human race available. It would be in the fusion of the hypostatic union, or the GOD-MAN. Jesus Christ was that person; 100% GOD & 100% Man & willing to be that substitutionary sacrifice for all of fallen Humanity. What died at the Cross was not GOD but, the Man, Christ Jesus. It was this ‘Man’ of whom John the Baptist proclaimed, ‘behold the Lamb of GOD that takes the sin of the world away.’ (John 1:29)
This ‘slaughter’ of the ‘Lamb’ actually happened in Eternity Past, ‘before the foundations of the World were set up’, the Bible declares. The slaughter of Jesus Christ provided a divine & eternal payment or ‘atonement’ for a fallen Humanity created in the likeness of GOD. This payment was however fulfilled at the Cross of Calvary in space & time. Those that have refused & refuse such a royal invitation for compensation will be found wanting of worthiness. This is in reference to GOD’s absolute & immutable standard of righteousness & holiness. The outstanding amount owed by each living human soul will have to be reconciled by a Righteous LORD if one is found not being covering or ‘atoned’ for sin by the Blood of the Lamb.
The Book of Revelation depicts this very same ‘Lamb’ is the One now that has the Keys & authority to unlock this Divine Judgment upon an unrepentant world. This ‘lamb’ is actually a human, the risen Jesus Christ. It will be from the Tribe of Judah no less, a Jew. Now forever more, the 2nd Person of the Godhead is to be a human for all Eternity. Imagine that, in Heaven right now, there is a living, resurrected, glorified Man, a dual natured, human nonetheless representing a redeemed Humanity before the Throne of the Courts of Heaven.
THE WRATH OF THE LAMB
It is uncharacteristic to have a depiction of a ‘Lamb’ with a ‘wrath’. Most lambs are known for their docility. Christ was slain as a lamb led to the slaughter at His 1st Advent; He will return to execute His vengeance upon His enemies as a Lion at His 2nd Advent. It will be the time when the ‘Humble Lamb’ that triumphed over the raging prideful ‘red dragon’ at the Cross will have His vengeance in the end.
The Wrath of the Lamb will be a prelude to the eternal condemnation & judgment to come as described in the White Throne Judgment. This Tribulation Period, that will experience the Wrath of Jesus Christ, will be a time when those remaining on the Earth/World not ‘sealed’ by the Mark of the LORD will suffer the Wrath of the Lamb. The last wicked generation right before Christ’s return will be the one held accountable for the treatment of Believers in Christ during the Church Age & during the Tribulation. It will also be that Last Generation that will see the Resurrection & Rapture of the Saints to Glory.
In a sense, Jesus Christ will be implementing an ‘evection’ notice to a Christ-rejecting Humanity & fallen angelic entities left on Earth to make way for the Millennial Kingdom Age. Prophetically, the Lamb of God does now possess the Title Deed to Humanity & the Physical Earth that was forfeited by Adam & Eve since the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Christ purchased the Title Deed to the Earth on the Cross of Calvary as well. This was symbolized by the Crown of Thorns or the ‘curse of the Earth’ that Jesus took upon His very own head. Jesus took the ‘curse’ of the ground -the Earth that was a direct result of Adam’s disobedience that plummeted, not only Humanity into sin, but the whole of Creation as well.
The Lamb’s Scroll
The Wrath of the Lamb judgments follows the breaking of the successive Seals of the Scroll by the Lamb, Jesus Christ. A scroll in the ancient world also alluded to a title deed to a property. The Scroll of the Lamb is a sort of a ‘Last Will & Testament’ but in this case of the Risen Christ. In the ancient world or even now in to some extent for special occasions, a scroll was considered a ‘book’. The Greeks referred such scrolls as ‘biblion’; this is where we get the word Bible from. We also get the word ‘syllabus’ from the tag that was attached at the end of the scroll signifying who it was from, the ‘sillybos’. It was made up of columns & was on a continuous roll. Most scrolls were made out of papyrus or parchment.
In legal terms, if a scroll was sealed, it usually meant that it was very important as the seals carried the ‘mark’ or signet icon of the personage giving the scroll its authority. The sealing of a scroll also served to secure its contents & integrity. The connotation of a ‘sealed scroll’ meant that it had irrevocable mandates to be carried out -without delay or impediments. In general, a typical royal scroll had the following components to it:
The medium in which the lettering was inscribed on, usually in papyrus to any length required.
A tag that was pasted on the edge of the Scroll. It recorded the Author’s Title & Information.
These were the ‘seals’. Having a Bullae constituted the scroll as a Legal Document -as in a Will.
A sealed scroll also served to conceal the contents of the message or a will it contained until the seals were broken & at an allotted time. This is why the Book of Revelation in the Greek is called an ‘Apocalypse’ as in an un-raveling or unfolding verses an ‘Apocrypha’ that is a hiding. Christ chose to reveal the contents of His coming Wrath, if at least in metaphorical terms to all those that have ‘ears to listen’.
There is a scholarly debate as to when the seals are broken specifically. The argument is whether the Scroll Judgments have actually taken place already, are taking place or are to take place. The answer is probably all 3. Some believe that the Seals might have been metaphorically broken in the past but the contents will be fulfilled in real time or at some point in the future. Some speculate that they have occurred in GLORY -occurring since Christ’s ascension into Heaven. Others believe it will only occur literally to be fulfilled after the Rapture as the Church is promised not to endure such Wrath of the Lamb. Whether the physical seals are broken in the LORD’s presence or yet to be broken remains to be seen as it was a ‘vision’ given to the Apostle John.
1. A Super Solar Flare
The 1st angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the Earth. A 1/3 of the Earth was burned up, a 1/3 of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. –Revelation 8:7
The 4th angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him. –Revelation 16-8-9
The 1st century language did its best to describe what possibly will be understood to be such a case of a Super Solar Flare, Pole Shift & incoming Asteroid. The 1st Trumpet Judgment deals with the Sun. This possibly correlates to the 4th Bowl Judgment of the Wrath of the Lamb. There will be a degree of heat so intense that it will burn up 1/3 of all the Earth’s trees & grass. This clearly would describe a Super Solar Flare of such a magnitude as to possibly affect vegetation on at least the side the Earth is facing the Sun. At any given time, the continents make up about 1/3 of the Earth’s land surface when facing the Sun.
The Earth has already had some close encounters with massive Solar Flares. Some recent eruptions have spared the Earth so as the Flares have been on the opposite side of the Sun, away from the Earth. Currently the Sun is experiencing a Solar Maximum to peek in Spring of 2013. What is alarming is that the Sun has never been this active since recorded data has been collected. The latest massive Solar Eruption occurred on Nov. 16, 2012. This ‘prominence’ as it is referred to, was so huge, it was out of the rage of NASA’s measurable instrumentation.
It is only a matter of time & probability that the next major massive Solar Flare will face the Earth directly. Given that the Earth’s Magnetic Shields have holes & is at a weakened stage, it makes for the ‘perfect solar storm’ to occur as described in the Book of Revelation. This is not to allude that a super Solar Flare will occur on DEC 21, 2012 either as some predict.
With such a worst-case scenario possible, it would be plausible to conceive scientifically that a ‘Super Solar Flare’ would penetrate the weakened Magnetic Shield of Earth to cause such horrific damage upon the land facing the Sun -at that time that 1/3 of the grass, trees, crops & vegetation would be scored and/or burned to a certain degree. The heat would be so intense that it would case massive death of humanity as well, not to mention the ramification of a year’s loss of world-wide crops. Massive food shortages & starvation would ensue. The price of elementary food stuffs would skyrocket due to demand & inflation. It would therefore not be that far-fetched to image a loaf of bread costing a whole day’s wage -as described from the Book of Revelation, if a person could even have a job.
The 2nd angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A 1/3 of the sea turned into blood, a 1/3 of the living creatures in the sea died, and a 1/3 of the ships were destroyed. –Revelation 8:8-9
The 3rd angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a 1/3 of the rivers and on the springs of water—the name of the star is Wormwood. A 1/3 of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter. –Revelation 10:11
It is not a matter of IF but WHEN a Near Earth Object (NEO) will hit the Earth. It may be an Asteroid or a Meteorite -they have before. There are 100s of well recognized & confirmed impact creators all over the world. At any given time, there are 100s of Near Earth Objects that are tracked by NASA for example that appear to be headed toward Earth. Yet not all 100% of Asteroids that do exist in space can be possibly identified by world governments and/or space agencies to warn citizens of an impending danger or catastrophe. Or can they?
In the past few years alone, there have been several ‘near misses’ of Asteroids cruising by the Earth. There have also been some recent spectacular Meteorites recorded or caught on film that have screeched across the Earth’s skies. Such an object like a ‘mountain’ sized asteroid would be equal to 1000s of atomic bombs going off all at the same time. The plumes alone would cover the atmosphere of the Earth to the point that the Sun would be turned into ‘sackcloth’ & day would turn to night as a result for days. This too would affect the temperature as it would plummet in some areas & negatively affect the growing seasons & crops.
The Book of Revelation clearly suggests that there will actually be 2 separate occasions in which an object from space will come crashing down on Earth. The 1st object from space is described to be as big as a ‘mountain’ –this could only be an inference to an Asteroid. This first one will definitely hit an ocean. According to this Trumpet Judgment cataclysm, 1/3 of the Earth’s oceans will turn bitter. This includes the third part of the life therein & the destroyed shipping fleets. At any given time, the oceans facing the Sun make up approximately 1/3 of the Earth’s ocean surface.
The 2nd occurrence of an object coming down from space appears to be a Meteorite. The 2nd event that most likely describes a Meteorite may very well fall on land as opposed to the ocean. It appears that the description speaks of the springs of water & rivers that only land masses have & empty out into the ocean. According to this Trumpet Judgment cataclysm, 1/3 of the Earth’s springs & rivers will turn bitter. It has also been scientifically verified that Meteorites are made of a composite elements that when fused together with Earth’s elements make for a toxic mix that would likely contaminate that which it is exposed to.
3. Earth Pole Shift
The 7th angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. –Revelation 6:17-20
A current fact is that the Earth has been experiencing a surge in volcanic eruptions & increased frequency of sizable earthquakes. In some instances, earthquakes are occurring in areas not formally known for such activity. Many hold to a belief that in part, such geothermal activities are a direct result of an impending Pole-Shift. It is an undeniable fact now that the Earth’s magnetic poles are moving, and are accelerating in speed.
Over the last 420 years of recorded observations of the Magnetic North, the surge or the greatest change has occurred since 2000. What can cause a Pole-Shift, is for another body like the Earth of equal or greater weight/volume to be in such proximity that a reversal of polarity would ensue. Another theory is that a Pole-Shirt may be induced when the Earth may possible cross some galactic debris pocket of space or a Super Solar Flare. These are only suggestive speculations.
The 6th Seal of the Lamb’s Wrath has to do with the whole Earth or globe, perhaps as a direct result of a Pole-Shift. This description from the Book of Revelation would be in line with modern scientific models if such a calamity were to occur. The Book of Revelation speaks of an occurrence that will have all the foundations of the Earth shaken at the very core & at the same time. It will not be a localized event. This ‘event’ will be triggered by a Mega-Global Earthquake or as a result of it. The passage states that an earthquake will occur as none other since man has been on Earth. It will engulf the whole of the Planet. It thereafter depicts a horrible array of events that seem to allude to the consequences of a Pole Shirt in that ALL the islands & mountains will be moved from their very foundation.
Perhaps as part of a cause & effect, the prior Super Solar Flare could have induced this world mega-earthquake that in turn induces the Pole Shift due to the radiation & agitation of matter in part, i.e. Earth’s crust & magma compensations. A Pole Shift would cause the Earth’s crust & ocean floors to shift as the Earth’s Magnetic Field would rotate. According to the Book of Revelation, the world-wide effect of such a Pole-Shirt will be terrifying in terms of the consequences; major cities will be leveled, sea levels & coast re-orientated etc.
Judgment Outline of Revelation
The 7 SEALS (33rd Part)
1st SEAL-White Horse False Peace through Anti-Christ
2nd SEAL -Red Horse World War
3rd SEAL-Pale Horse Death by , famine & pestilences
4th SEAL-Martyrdom of Believers under Alter
6th SEAL-Sun Moon Stars
-‘Elites’ seek underground shelter from Wrath of Lamb
5th SEAL-Rapture of Martyrs to Heaven
7th SEAL-Silence in Heaven .5 Hours
7 TRUMPETS (33rd Part)
1st TRUMPET-33% of Trees & Grass burnt up (SUN)
2nd TRUMPET-33% of Sea turned to ‘Blood’ (Ocean-Asteroid)
3rd TRUMPET-33% of Fresh Water turned bitter (Land-Meteor)
4th TRUMPET-33% of Sun/Moon/Star loose light
5th TRUMPET-3 Woes Warning (Woe, Woe, Woe)
6th TRUMPET-Star Falls w/ Key to Abyss, 5 Months
It is not clear if the first 3 Trumpet Judgments are the same as the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th Bowl Judgments. The separate descriptions of the Trumpet & Bowl Judgments appear similar in scope & effect. Many researchers argue that it has to do with being a point of perspective; as the Trumpet Judgments may be presented from a ‘heavenly’ view point & the Bowl Judgments may be from an Earthly reference point. This rationale would only apply if it were the case that the separate descriptions are actually one in the same. One aspect is striking in that the 3 highlighted events do appear to mirror each other in terms of sequence; the first 3 Trumpets start off with the Sun & the 2nd,3rd, & 4th Bowls end with the Sun.
7 BOWLS (33rd Part)
1st BOWL On LAND: painful soars on those who took MARK
2nd BOWL On SEA: turned to ‘blood’ (Ocean)
3rd BOWL On RIVERS: turned to ‘blood’ (Land)
4th BOWL On SUN: scorching with fire & intense heat (Sun)
5th BOWL On BEAST THRONE: Darkness
6th BOWL On Euphrates: Dried up for Kings of EAST (China)
7th BOWL On AIR: Severe Earthquake; 100lbs hailstones
To reiterate, the descriptions of what is happening now to the Earth & in the Earth with increasing Solar Flares, Pole-Shift & earthquakes seem to line up to the prophetic cataclysms of the Book of Revelation. These highlighted cataclysms seem to correlate to the impending divine judgments of Jesus Christ that are referred to as being the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ to come. Even now there are some spectacular current world trends going on before our very eyes that appear to be ‘apocalyptic’ in scope: mass death of animals, birds, a ramping up of the occult, demonism, earthquakes, volcanoes, lawlessness, violence & threat of nuclear war, etc. These are but a few of the alarming trends that the world is currently experiencing.
If indeed such astronomical cataclysms are to be part of the Wrath of the Lamb judgments, they are designed & enacted to cause repentance & reconciliation. Sadly, the Humanity of the world in the Last Days, specifically during the Tribulation Period will be far removed from the precepts of the Gospel & repentance. Humanity as a whole will on the contrary, will shake their fists & curse at GOD for all the calamities befalling them.
If you think the current world conditions are bad now, the world will see a far worse reality & condition after the Rapture according to Jesus Christ. The coming Wrath of the Lamb will be so frightening that Christ Himself said that ‘unless those Days are cut short, no flesh would be left alive.’ Whether the ‘shortening’ refers to a literal alteration in time originally degreed or changed to a lesser amount of days, is not known 100%. Those that hold to a Pre-Tribulation or Pre-Wrath Rapture could nonetheless agree that the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ or of Jesus’ judgment of the world will commence once the Body of Christ is removed.
This speculative Escape scenario followers much like the example of what happened during the taking out or ‘snatching away’ of Lot & family out of Sodom & Gomorrah. The Rapture is The Escape that the LORD is providing His Redeemed from universal judgment; much like the Ark of Noah & Rehab. Rehab was spared the judgment of Jericho as the Walls fell down & the Israelites under Joshua’s command went up. If the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah is a type of the Rapture & Sudden Destruction sequence, then perhaps the Rapture will seemingly have a direct correlation to the probable cataclysmic scenarios that are said to occur on Earth per the Book of Revelation.
After the Rapture of the Body of Christ, judgment will be reigning down from Heaven but it cannot begin until the Redeemed are out of harms-way. Christians can be confident that when such cataclysmic scenarios begin to occur, it will only be signals of just how close the Rapture is. The Apostle Paul stipulated that the Bride of Christ will be removed because the Church is promised not to suffer ‘Wrath’ but will be provided an Escape, a door. In the Book of Revelation, the Risen Christ Himself addressed the Church of Philadelphia specifically in regards to this prophetically. Jesus Christ specifically promised that those of like-minded faith that ‘overcome’ are to be kept from the ‘hour of trail’ that is about to come to test the whole world. If that ‘testing’ is referring to the ‘Wrath of the Lamb’ then it would appear that the cataclysmic scenarios –as described in the Book of Revelation are post-Rapture.
Aside from the dispute of how long the Tribulation Period will be, it will be a specific period of time in which cataclysmic events are said to occur on Earth that will boggle the mind. It will be worse than a scripted science-fiction horror block buster; there will be billions that will die. You don’t want to be here for the darkest chapter & episode of Humanity’s history; do all you can to escape this. This Escape can only be secured through the Faith & Trust in Christ Jesus, the Lamb of God that has taken the sin of the World upon Himself, otherwise prepare to suffer the Wrath of the Lamb.

The subject of this post is the Coming of the Tribulation and the Rapture of the church of Jesus Christ. Pastor F.M. Riley has been a believer of the existence of Planet X or Nibiru for a long time. In this article below he theorizes that the start of the seven years of Tribulation is triggered by the fly by of Nibiru that causes the earth to shake violently and change from 365 days per year to 360.
I agree with the pastor that this event could be the one heralding the events he enunciates in the article so eloquently.
We must not ignore all the information written by the ancient civilizations like the Mayan and Hopi Indians as well as others that these events could be about to happen.

“What is about to happen…!“
What is about to happen…!
By Pastor F. M. Riley

Text: ”We have also a more sure [inerrant; infallible; unfailing] Word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts,” 2 Peter 1:19.
Because I love the inspired prophecies of the Word of God and write about them often, I frequently receive emails, phone calls, and letters from readers asking me what “I think” is going to happen next? My reply is usually that I just don’t know, for only the Lord knows “what a day shall bring forth,” Matthew 6:34. However, through the study of Bible prophecy, I do know approximately where humanity is at in God’s great Plan of the Ages, and therefore I am well aware of certain earthshaking events which are prophetically scheduled to happen at any moment of any day now. This is the subject matter of this study. I urge every reader to pay close attention to what follows and share this information with others as the Lord leads, for what I will be writing about in this study will have an effect on every person living on this earth today in one way or another. I will not be giving any small details which may occur from day to day during the course of these events, but will limit this study only to the events specifically predicted in the Scriptures.
I invite and urge our readers to join us for an enlightening study of the prophetic Word…….
 This present “dispensation of grace” will end with “a great earthquake.” Significantly, this is exactly the way the Dispensation of Grace began some 2,000 years ago. Read it for yourself in Matthew 27:45-53. Compare Colossians 2:13-14 which tells us exactly when and how the Dispensation of Law ended and the Dispensation of Grace began. Also remember again that the end has been declared from the beginning, Isaiah 46:9-10. So just as this dispensation began with “a great earthquake,” at the resurrection of Christ, so it is going to end with “a great earthquake” at the resurrection of all true New Covenant believers who are the disciples and followers of Christ.
 The source of this great earthquake will likely coincide with some heavenly body flying past the earth, Matthew 24:35. If our readers will look up in your own Concordance or Greek Lexicon the words translated as “pass away” in this passage, they will find that these words literally mean, “to pass by; to fly past; to go past; to be carried past; to pass away.” See Thayer’s Greek Lexicon, page 488, Strong’s No. 3928. So there is no question that the Lord Jesus Christ Himself clearly predicted in Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, and Luke 21:33 that some heavenly body, one or more, will come flying past the earth. Our readers can call it Planet X, Nibiru, the Dark Planet, the Brown Dwarf, or any of some 50 other names that have been assigned to this “wandering star.” I don’t care what you call it, but it is real, and very soon it is going to come flying past the earth, exactly as predicted by the Lord God Himself. As any reader willing to deal honestly with the Scriptures can see, this is not my opinion or theory. Christ Himself predicted that there will be a “fly by” of one or more heavenly bodies that will bring this present dispensation to an end, while also causing great destruction upon the earth.
Significantly, the inspired Apostle Peter predicted the exact same event in his epistle in 2 Peter 3:10, even using the exact same words in the Greek text which the Lord God used in the three passages in the Gospels. Check it out for yourself!
Why have I emphasized this truth? Because, not only will such a “fly by” cause great destruction upon the earth, but it will also…..
 Move the entire earth out of its present orbit and plunge the earth into total darkness. Oh yes it will! Read it for yourself in Isaiah 13:13-14 and 24:18-20. In ancient time before 701 B.C., all the nations of the earth had calendars based on a 360 day year. In 701 B.C. that all changed. The change was due to the great earthquake in the days of Uzziah, Amos 1:1; Zechariah 14:5. In 701 B.C. every nation and people on earth changed their calendars from a 360 day year to a year of 365.2422 days. It is glaringly obvious that the earth had been slightly moved out of its ancient orbit, thereby requiring a little more than five additional days to make its annual orbit around the Sun. This was caused by a “great earthquake” so large that it violently shook the entire earth, shaking it right out of its orbit. Folks, such an earthquake is coming again REAL SOON. When it occurs it will literally move the earth out of its present orbit of 365.2422 days per year, and the earth will return to its former orbit requiring only 360 days to make its annual trek around the Sun.
That this is going to happen is glaringly obvious, for the seven year Tribulation is only 2520 days in length. This is seven years of 360 days per year. Check it out for yourself.
 Such a great earthquake will set off every one of the 1,500 plus volcanoes presently on the earth, and will likely bring some new ones into existence. This will fulfill the prophecies set forth by Peter in Acts 2:19-20, and by Joel in Joel 2:30-31. Peter speaks of “blood and fire and vapor of smoke” covering the surface of the earth, but Joel speaks of “blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.” Any reader who has ever witnessed the violent eruption of a volcano or even seen a photo of such an eruption knows that the explosive force of the erupting volcano sends a column [or pillar] of smoke straight up into the atmosphere of the earth, sometimes towering five or six miles, or even higher, into the sky above the earth. These upright columns or pillars of smoke will be seen all over the earth following this great earthquake, fulfilling both of these prophecies to the letter.
This would also fulfill the prophecies of Isaiah 24:6, “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.” Can our readers even imagine the tremendous heat that will be caused by all of the volcanoes on earth erupting at the same time? People will literally have to flee into the caves and dens of the earth to escape the searing heat on the surface of the earth.
But this isn’t all of it by any means…..
 Pouring that amount of volcanic ash into the upper atmosphere above the earth will literally block out the light of the Sun during the day time, and if the moon is seen at night it will appear through the haze as “blood red.” Hello! Is God’s Word timely and relevant or not?
Folks, the inspired Word states repeatedly that the entire seven year Tribulation will be “A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains:…,” Joel 1;1-2. See also Zephaniah 1:14-15. People left on the earth after the rapture will go for days, weeks, even months, without seeing the light of the Sun.
I highly suspect that the tremendous amount of volcanic ash and heat released into the atmosphere above the earth will also alter the weather systems of the earth to the extent that there will be no rainfall on the earth for the first three and one-half years of the Tribulation. By the middle of the Tribulation the ash in the atmosphere above the earth will begin to thin out enough to allow storm clouds to form again, but during the first half of the Tribulation there will be total “dearth” [drought and death] over the whole earth.
Dear readers, these events are what all Christ rejecting unbelievers have to look forward to in the very near future. In fact, we today are living so close to the end of this present dispensation
that these events could begin at any moment of any day now. No, I do not know the “date” when these things will begin, and am not even trying to determine the “date.” I know they are going to occur, because God’s inspired Word says so, and I have set before our readers the book, chapter, and verse, where it says so. It is sufficient for me to know that these events are coming because they are clearly predicted in the inspired Word of God. I am willing to trust my Lord and wait until His “appointed time” to bring them to pass, for I am saved by His grace with an eternal salvation and none of these predicted events cause me any personal concern whatsoever.
I do have a concern for our readers. My hope and prayer is that every person reading this study knows the Lord in a true salvation experience and is ready to meet Him at His coming. If you are not saved, then you are not ready to face what is coming on the earth in the very near future. So keep reading…….
 It is highly likely that the exact same day that the great earthquake occurs will also be the day that the Lord Jesus Christ “descends from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and resurrects and raptures His New Covenant believing people to glory, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. The resurrection of Christ Himself was accompanied by “a great earthquake,” which literally opened the tomb of the Lord and the graves of the first fruit saints, Matthew 27:51-53. I highly suspect that there will be a repetition of what happened back then, yet on a far greater scale, when the predicted resurrection and rapture of New Covenant believers occurs. The grave of every true deceased believer on this earth will be opened. This will not be to let the believers come out of the grave, for that is not even necessary, but rather it will be to give visible “witness” to the unbelieving lost left behind that the predicted resurrection and rapture has actually occurred. Praise the Lord! Glory to God!
The Greek word translated as “shout” literally means “an intelligent call.” On that great day the Lord will call every New Covenant believer by their name. Every believer will instantly recognize the voice of the Lord as He calls and will answer Him with a shout of praise and glory. Compare the statement of the old patriarch Job in Job 14:12-15. Folks, this is “the blessed hope” of the believer, Titus 2:11-15. Glory to God! Praise the Lord! Thank you Lord Jesus!
The Lord will also have with Him “the voice of the archangel.” This will be the voice of Michael, the archangel. The obvious reason for this is that Michael has been entrusted with caring for the bodies of all true believers throughout human history. He guards and protects those bodies from Satan who would like to have them to use for his own evil purposes, Jude 8-9; Daniel 12:1. The voice of Michael will command the earth to release the bodies of the deceased believers into the care of our precious Lord, who Himself is “the resurrection and the life,” and those deceased believers will instantly live as they come forth from their graves, John 11:25; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Corinthians 15:51-53. Glory to God! Praise you Lord Jesus!
Christ will also have with Him “the trump [trumpet] of God.” This will be the same trumpet that sounded at Mt. Sinai some 3,500 years ago when God gave His Law to Moses to give to the children of Israel. Why would the Lord bring this trumpet with Him? Because the nation and people of Israel, in their present state of unbelief and rejection of Christ, will have to go back under seven more years of Law. See Daniel 9: 24-27 remembering that the prophecy was given while Daniel and the people of Israel were still living under the Law. They fulfilled the first 69 weeks of that prophecy until Christ was crucified and the Dispensation of Grace intervened. The last seven years of the Dispensation of the Law have not yet been fulfilled. Therefore, just as the “Trumpet of God” sounded at the institution of the Law some 3,500 years ago, it is going to sound again immediately after the resurrection and rapture of all New Covenant believers has occurred, re-instituting the final seven years of the Law upon Israel. Glory to the Lord!
 Immediately following the resurrection and rapture of New Covenant believers off the
earth, the seven year Tribulation will begin on the earth. When the thick darkness caused by the
“fly by,” the earthquake, and the erupting volcanoes lessens enough so that the unbelievers left on the earth can begin to see and understand what is going on, they will find that two strange looking men have appeared in the streets of Jerusalem preaching the Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom and demanding repentance on the part of the lost. These will be God’s “two witnesses,” who will preach to the Jewish people and to the whole world from the streets of Jerusalem throughout the first half of the Tribulation period [1,260 days], Revelation 11:3-6.
One of the first things they will ask of God in order to demonstrate the proof of their authority as true “messengers sent from God” will be their prayer that the Lord God will shut up the heavens for three and one-half years during their ministry. This coincides perfectly with Point 5 under the Natural Events as listed above.
We know that today every nation on earth is moving against Bible believing Christianity, and therefore against anything having to do with God and the Judeo-Christian Scriptures. It is only going to get worse with the passing of time. The preaching of these “two witnesses” will then be about as welcome to the unbelieving lost world left on the earth as a “wart on the nose.” There is no question that “the authorities” will attempt to stop their preaching almost immediately. But the Scriptures tell us that anyone who attempts to stop them or harm them in anyway will simply be consumed into ashes by fire proceeding out of the mouth of the “two witnesses,” Revelation 11:5. People may not believe in the supernatural today, but during the coming Tribulation there will be all kinds of supernatural powers at work. It won’t take but a few instances of people being burned into ashes, and the “authorities” will leave the “two witnesses” alone to do what the Lord God sent them to do.
I have an in-depth Bible study on The Future Ministry of God’s Two Witnesses which I will be glad to send to any reader upon request.
 The very first converts among the Jewish people to the ministry of God’s “two witnesses” will be the beginning of the Jewish “remnant,” consisting of 144,000 Jews out of all 12 tribes of the children of Israel, Revelation 7:1-8; 14:1-5. These 144,000 Jews will in turn be sealed and commissioned to carry “the gospel of the kingdom” [Matthew 24:14] all over the earth during the first half of the Tribulation, and millions of people will come to salvation in Christ under their ministry and the ministry of the “two witnesses,” Revelation 7:9-17; Joel 2:32.
I also have an in-depth study about The Salvation, Sealing, & Ministry of the 144,000, which I will be glad to send to any reader upon request.
 At almost the same time that these events are occurring, the “man of sin,” the prophesied
anti-christ, will make his appearance on the world scene. He will come on the world scene as a great “man of peace” with a “peace plan” which will supposedly ensure “world peace” for at least seven years, Revelation 6:1-2; Daniel 8:23-25; 9:27. The lost, unbelieving populace will “eat it up” and hail his arrival as the great “world leader” they have long anticipated and been hoping for. But it will all be a deception. The passage in Daniel 8:25 stated explicitly that under the guise of “peace” “he shall destroy many.” He will have limited supernatural powers with which he will deceive the whole unbelieving lost world into following him, 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10. His supernatural powers will increase during the last half of the Tribulation, after he has been killed and his body is then indwelt by the spirit of Satan himself, Revelation 13:1-9. Nevertheless, he will ultimately be destroyed by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and cast alive into the lake of fire and brimstone, Revelation 19:20.
These are just a few of the natural and spiritual events clearly prophesied in God’s Word to occur, which are staring humanity in the face RIGHT NOW. These events could begin at any
moment of any day now. But they will begin SOON! Those who “profess” to be Christian believers today can either “make your calling and election sure” and know that you are truly saved and ready to meet the Lord, or you can “sluff it off” in your unbelief and weep later, 2 Corinthians 13:5; 2 Peter 1:10. The time for playing silly little “religious” or “church” games is over. We living today are facing the very end of this dispensation, and it will end suddenly without any further warning. All the warnings we need are right here in God’s inspired Word. Readers can take this message to heart and act upon it, or they can ignore it to their own hurt and possible eternal damnation. Are you listening?
I am not writing to entertain anyone, nor to tickle anyone’s ears. I have laid these truths out before my readers just as plainly and sincerely as I know how. My heart cries and my eyes weep for the lost in the world today. I would like to meet every reader in glory when my precious Lord comes to receive His people to Himself, John 14:1-3. But the ONLY way that will happen is that every reader have the assurance of the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ in and upon your soul. Do YOU have such assurance? If any reader has any doubts, then I urge you to read again John 3:3-7; 3:16; 3:36; 5:24, 14:6; Acts 4:12; 16:30-31; 20:21; 20:26-27; Romans 10:8-13; 10:17; Ephesians 2:8-9; and Titus 3:5. After reading these passages, ask the Lord in simple prayer to give you the GRACE to believe His Word and to receive Christ as your own personal Savior. Then write and let me know that you have been saved so that I may rejoice with you and pray for you.
Written in the love of Christ Jesus our wonderful Savior and Lord.
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

As an introduction to this link I want to tell you that seldom will you find two videos whose speaker Mr. Patrick Heron captivates the audience with an electrifying theme that covers all the book of Revelation the Antichrist, the Rapture of the church and the fallen angels and the Nephilin. The last part covers the pyramids and Giza specifically.
He is a very good speaker who is full of the Holy Spirit. He makes the Holy Bible come alive and captivates you with the power of the Word of God. This is a two part video that must be seen by all people and specially all believers.
Thanks to Steven King for giving us the link.
