After being hit by a swarm of large meteors again, scientist say that we have been shaken out of our orbit around the sun and are moving toward the sun.
The destruction all across the world has been beyond human belief. The earthquakes have shaken down virtually every building in the world, roads have become impassable for cars and trucks. New cracks in the earth have opened up and many new volcanoes have started. Reports have come in that some mountain ranges have sunk into the earth and islands have either moved or are totally gone. New mountain ranges have been rising.
The tidal waves that have been caused by the meteors have washed as much as a hundred miles inland on all sea coasts destroying everything that the earthquakes didn't. It is impossible to count the loss of life. Almost all fresh water supplies in the world have been destroyed or polluted.
Without roads, it is virtually impossible to transport food and medical help to those who need it. Airplanes can't fly because there are no runways left intact for them to takeoff and land. Only a few helicopters are left and they have all been pressed into government service. They can't fly for long, their fuel supply is very limited and without hope of replenishment.
Can Mankind Survive??
The Bible has many prophecies in it. Prophecies given more than a thousand years before have come to pass with 100% accuracy. Not one prophecy has failed out of the thousands given, therefore we can believe and expect that all of the prophecies yet to be fulfilled will happen exactly as the bible tells us.
The story above, is based on bible scripture. A prophecy of what will be fulfilled during the period the bible calls the "Great Tribulation"
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
That the earth will leave it's orbit during this tribulation period is told to us in many different scripture verses.
Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble.
To go into? the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Compare to Rev 6:12-14
?And I beheld, when he had opened the sixth seal and , lo, there was a
great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon
became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig
tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it
is rolled together; and every mountain and
Isaiah 34:4 ?And all the host of heaven shall? be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll; and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.?
Isaiah 51:6 ?Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner; but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished. ?
Ps 46:2;? ?Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea:?
But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light
25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
When I started following this line to see where it would take me I found a path that explained much in the book of Revelation (Apocalypse).
The Great Tribulation period will last for seven years. During this seven year period, the earth will be almost totally destroyed and so many men will die, that this verse from Isaiah will hold true.
I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
The world will continue yet for another one thousand years, with mankind still living on a changed world with Jesus Christ as the Ruler of the entire world. He will rule with an iron rod, meaning that His rule is absolute and unbending. His Will will be done.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne.
The scriptures tell us that man will live longer during this 1000 year period.
There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner [being] an hundred years old shall be accursed.
But what will happen during this tribulation period is terrible beyond imagination. The earth will be struck by many meteors, these strikes will cause a shifting of the earth which causes many great earthquakes as the earth tries to realign itself to a new equator and new pole positions.
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
"And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth." Meteors crashing upon the earth causing the earth to shift and move like it was drunk. Remember Isaiah 24:20 and Mark 13:24-25, compare against the above verses. "And the heavens departed", again a reference to the earth moving out of orbit for as we move the star patterns will appear to move. This upheaval will destroy the houses and other buildings forcing men to find any shelter they can while at this time they believe that it is the end of the world.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
It is only the beginning. More meteors strike the earth literally destroying almost everything.
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.
8 And the second angel sounded,and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
This kills most of the sea life on the earth.
And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
And then, what fresh waters are left on the earth will be polluted with a deadly substance that will kill many who are left.
And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood:and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
The impacts of these large meteors will cause the earth to increase the speed that it rotates, that is, in spinning faster the day and night will be shorter by one third. The earth will have a complete day and night in only sixteen hours instead of the twenty four hours that we know today.
And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
As the earth moves out of it's orbit and toward the sun there will continue to be great earthquakes with mountains moving and islands falling into the sea. There will be no place on the earth that could be recognized from what it was before the tribulation period.
But why toward the sun? Because, as the earth moves toward the sun, or gets closer to the sun, the earth will become hotter to the point of scorching the earth. Men will have to hide from the sun just to stay alive. We see this happening in Revelation 16:8- 9.
And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.?
The earth does not fall into the sun but instead, the gravity that pulled the earth toward the sun caused the earth to speed up and to pass the sun like a slingshot at great speed into outer space and darkness. The earth now stops rotating as it passes the sun leaving part of the earth in darkness. A darkness so complete that there isn't any light from moon or stars either. This darkness will cause a physical pain.
And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
We see that the darkness isn't over all the world but only over the seat of the beast and his kingdom. The indication that the earth has stopped rotating with this part facing away from the sun.
The earth continues to have earthquakes and volcanoes as the earth tries to adjust to these sudden changes in movement. Because of the spin of the earth, the equator bulged out from centrifugal force. When the earth spun faster, the bulge became greater and the earth's crust broke and moved creating great earthquakes, volcano's, new mountain ranges and great tears in the earth's crust. And now the earth suddenly stops spinning and all of that earth that moved, now moves back to form a round ball without that bulge in the middle. Even greater earthquakes as the earth's crust tries to stabilize itself.
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings;and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, [and] so great.
And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found
More Earthquakes because with this stop of rotation of the Earth, The parts of the Earth try to Equalize, the Equator bulge moves back.
The weather is in chaos, winds that will blow men off their feet, great storms and hail such as the world has never seen.
And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, [every stone] about the weight of a talent:(100 lb.) and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
Can you imagine, hail stones the size of three or four large watermelons. A man being hit by one would be killed or maimed. Even the slivers of ice that would fly off of this hail striking the ground would be like shrapnel that would cut a man to pieces.
So how many people will die during this seven years? Revelation 6:8 tells us that Even Before the 7 year Great Tribulation period, there will be an earlier tribulation where one fourth of the men on the earth will die. That is one out every four men, women, or children.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
And Revelation 9:15 tells us that one third of the people left will die during the 7 year Great Tribulation period.
And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.
That makes one half of all men, women, and children in the world, that are alive Now, will die, and that is only up to part way through the tribulation period. You say "How So"?
If we start with 100, 1/4 of 100 = 25 leaving 75. 1/3 of 75 = 25 leaving 50 or 1/2 of what we started with.
That is one half of the population up to that point and the bible doesn't
till us how many will die from the sun, drinking poison water, hail, the battle
of Armageddon, etc. I believe that a conservative guess would be that one out
of a thousand may live all the way through the tribulation and live in the
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
Is this a natural disaster? NO! This IS God's Judgment. God's Judgment is terrible. I see in this the planning of God, His timing, the irony of it all. Those persons who are still alive during this time recognize all of it as being God's work for they curse God for it. (see Rev. 16:21 above)
God has been telling us for thousands of years that He is going to destroy this earth with fire. In His word, He has even told us how He will use fire to destroy this earth. Who will listen, Who cares? So what if I die during those seven years, dead is dead. OH, is it?
God's saints will not have to go through the seven year Great tribulation period. First, we will be kept from that time.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
The Church (not a denomination), containing the saints of God, is the Bride of Jesus Christ, and Jesus will take His bride off of the earth just before the Great tribulation starts. This is the great catching away (the Rapture) of 1 Corinthians 15:51-54 and 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
1 Thessalonians 4:16
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
However, those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and God have already been condemned to hell.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
That means that if you miss the catching away of the saints because you have not accepted Jesus before He came for His Church (Bride, saints) then you have to be one of the Israelites, who will also have Salvation.
The Mark of the Beast (Rev. 13:15-17) ?will be put into place during the ?First Tribulation, which comes just before the Great Seven Year Last Tribulation. It is the Christians who will know to refuse accepting the Mark of the Beast. ?Those who accept the Mark of the Beast will go to Hell.
All of your good intentions will not do a thing for you. Oh, how many of us sit in church every week and think that it is enough? How many of us have never accepted Jesus Christ as our personal savior? How many of us believe on Jesus Christ with our minds, but not with our hearts? Only You and God knows if you have Jesus in your heart. If you serve God only.
So what happens AFTER the Earth slingshots past the Sun, continuing out into Space away from the Sun??
Isa 12:10? ?For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.?
Mk 13:24:25? ?But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in the heavens shall be shaken.?
Isa 60:19 ?The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee; but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.?
Isa 65:17 ?For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered, not come into mind.
Ps 102:25-26 ?Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shall endure; yea, all or them shall was old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them; and they shall be changed; ?
We will no longer have a Sun for light, But The Lord God will provide all the light that we will need on both the old World which will be destroyed and on the New Earth which man will then live on after the 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ on the Earth.?? Will there still be a moon?? I DO NOT KNOW.? If so, there will not be a sun to reflect its light off of it. Perhaps the Light of God will reflect back off of the moon.
