Pro and Con 1695
PETER IS PROMINENT ON THE FISHERMAN'S RING POPE FRANCIS CHOSE
For the 112th pope, Malachy said, "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people."
Rome is considered the city of seven hills. However, Vatican Hill is not counted as one of the seven.
Known as the fisherman's ring from the apostle Peter, who was a fisherman and considered by Catholics as the first pope, Pope Francis's new ring depicts St. Peter holding the keys of the "Holy See."
Pope Francis is devoted to the Virgin Mary. After becoming Pope, he went to pray at the Chapel of the Blessed Virgin at Santa Maria Maggiore.
THE 10 KINGS RECEIVE THEIR KINGDOM AFTER THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE BUT BEFORE THE GREAT CITY IS BURNED
Rev 17:12-18 says, "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received NO KINGDOM AS YET; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and THEY THAT ARE WITH HIM ARE CALLED, AND CHOSEN, AND FAITHFUL. 15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."
OUR SIGN: THE PATH OF COMET PANSTARRS, DISCOVERED 6-6-11, WILL BE IN CASSIOPEIA (THE BRIDE OF CHRIST) THROUGH MAY. THE FISH IN PISCES THAT REPRESENTS THOSE OF THE FIRST RAPTURE ARE ALSO HEADED FOR CASSIOPEIA
On PanSTARRS journey to CASSIOPEIA, it will go through ANDROMEDA. That represents the persecution of the people of God. Therefore, the time is during the Tribulation. It looks like the First-Trump Rapture will be on Ascension Day, May 5, 2013, which is also Sunday, the Eastern Orthodox Easter, and the end of the Great Tribulation will be the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 14, 2015. The Last-Trump Rapture takes place just after the great and terrible Day of the Lord, the Day of God's Wrath, begins (Rev 6:17; 7:14).
"Comet PanSTARRS will continue its trek northward through Pisces into Andromeda for the remainder of March, passing within 3° of the Andromeda Galaxy M31 on April 3, 2013 and crossing the galactic plane in Cassiopeia on April 25, 2013. From mid-May onward, Comet Pan-STARRS will become circumpolar for observers at mid-northern latitudes and will remain visible all night long. At that time it will shine around 8th magnitude and require a small to medium-sized telescope to view."
INCOMING EMAIL, Re: What Do You Make of This Marilyn?
I was just checking out the projected path through the sky of the Pan-STARRS comet (http://www.space.com/20091-comet-pan-starrs-night-sky-stargazing-tips.html) and noticed that it will passing through the Band of Pieces on 14th. According to E. R. Capt, the Ancient Egyptian name for the band was U-or, meaning, "He Comes."
Not only that, it passes just a tick below the star Delta Piscium which is interesting in that, as wikipedia includes... "Delta Piscium is the most notable star the moon will be closest to on the solstice of December 21, 2012. Some works of fiction mention Delta Piscium combining myths about the Maya calendar and Revelation 13:5. The forty-two months the beast is to rise to power mentioned in Revelation is marked by the moon's passing Delta Piscium forty-two times. The first passing of this countdown nearly coincided with the full moon on October 4, 2009."
The comet then slices right through the chest of Andromeda, the chained and afflicted woman on the 26th/27th to 28th/29th before disappearing into Cassiopeia, the enthroned bride.
Anyway, I just thought that was really interesting.
I noticed that the comet was going through Pisces, but didn't realize it would go through the band. I believe that U-or, He Comes, is a sign. Aries, the Ram, represents Christ.
In Pisces, the smaller fish hurrying upward represents the First-Trump Rapture of the wise virgins. It is heaven bound for Cassiopeia, the Bride of Christ. Aries, the Ram (Christ) has his foot on the band. He is in control of both fish (i.e., both Raptures) and of Cetus, Satan. The larger fish, representing the foolish virgins, is going back to Aquarius, for more of the Holy Spirit.

There is a chart I liked about 1/4th the way in on the video at: http://earthsky.org/space/comet-panstarrs-possibly-visible-to-eye-in-march-2013
The video is near the bottom of the page.
The comet will reach Cassiopia May 1st. I think it is a sign. May 5 is the Eastern Orthodox Easter Sunday and Ascension Day, Iyar 25. Agape
WE HAVE A POPE
"World Net Daily said: Habemus Papum - We have a Pope. St. Malachy, an Irish saint and the archbishop of Armagh, who lived from 1094 to 1148, described the "final pope" this way: "In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the City of Seven Hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people."…The election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff lines up with a medieval prophecy that would make him the "final pope" before the End Times. ...Malachy's prophecies, first published in 1595, culminate with the "final pope," "Petrus Romanus," or "Peter the Roman," whose reign ends with the destruction of Rome and the judgment of Christ.... a pope of Italian descent would fulfill the prophecy, noting Bergoglio is the son of Italian parents and a Jesuit. ...the name "Petrus Romanus" in the prophecy "implies this pope will reaffirm the authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Church and will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith and the Roman Catholic Church above all other religions and denominations, and its authority over all Christians and all peoples of the world....[there is] significance in Bergoglio naming himself after Francis of Assisi, an Italian, or Roman, priest whose original name was Francesco di Pietro (Peter) di Bernardone, "literally, Peter the Roman."
INCOMING EMAIL, Re: 2 Thess. 2
...thank you for taking the time to write such a lengthy post to me. It shows your passion and love for His children....
...One thing I mentioned in my reply...was that the Lord the following day (after I sent that post to Chondra, but before receiving your post) convicted me that His faithful church will NOT be going through the Great Tribulation period, but will be caught up (Rapture) before then. With that said, I need to say this: I read your post and took it all in, and even though I agree with you that there will be a pre-great tribulation Rapture of the church (hallelujah!), I will never agree with you that the "falling away" refers to a Rapture. The reason why many try to make the "falling away" to mean something that it's not is because that would bring an understanding that the once-saved-always-saved (OSAS) doctrine is a lie, which would mean that they would have to actually stop sinning! I think of John 3: 19-20. Don't get me wrong, I do believe in OSAS doctrine, it's just we are OSAS as long as we do not commit the sins unto death, which are found in 1 Cor. 6: 9-10 and Gal. 5: 19-21, etc. Anyone that does these things will not inherit the kingdom of God except they repent from them, which means that we must cease from doing them (1 Pet. 4: 1). If we are naming the name of Christ, yet we allow such sins to enter into our heart, and then allow it to conceive in our heart to do them, even after coming to Christ, then we do not have salvation! Scripture tells us that "He that abides in Him sins not: whosoever sins has not seen Him, neither known Him" (1 Jn. 3: 6; 1 Jn. 5: 18). The blood of Christ represented our sins, not our holiness! And He has every expectation toward everyone that names the name of Christ to depart from iniquity. He has this expectation because He knows the power of His own Self. He will not lead us to sin (Gal. 2: 20).
You can research all you want and talk about all these eariler manuscripts that date before the KJV, and try to claim that "departing" or "departure" refers to a Rapture, but you can never take away what He clearly revealed to me concerning the falling away, and this passage of scripture (1-12) because it came of Him; not of man.
I am telling you, in His love, that the "falling away" refers not to the Rapture, but to a falling away or departure from the true gospel of Christ. This works perfectly with Daniel 8: 23. The word apostasia has different applications. In this sense, the word is used to describe the overall condition or state of the church in general; that when it comes to the full in no longer believing that it's possible to cease from doing such sins, it preaching another gospel, which is not another (Gal. 1: 6-7), then God would sent that man of sin, the son of perdition to bring judgment upon a hypocritical nation to waste it (Isaiah 10: 5-6). The hypocritical nation being the U.S.
I am telling you, by the word of the Lord, that the Rapture is only for them that have learned to do the Father's will, which is that we cease from doing such sins. If we are still doing such sins then we should expect to not be in the Rapture, but rather expect to be chastised, corrected, or punished, if necessary, during the great tribulation for the destruction of the flesh. Only those who allow such chastisement and correct will endure, as He will give them supernatural power to allow themselves to be put to death. Everyone else will take the mark of the beast, which we know their final destiny.
I'm convicted that the Gentile Church Age ended on Sept. 10, 2010, which is two years after our modern day famine in the land on Sept. 29, 2008. Both these dates fall on Rosh Hashanah (Gen. 45: 6).
"....and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord" (Heb. 12: 14). In the love of Christ
> > ...even though I agree with you that there will be a pre-great tribulation Rapture of the church (hallelujah!), I will never agree with you that the "falling away" refers to a Rapture.
Then tell me what specific "FALLING AWAY" precedes the Rapture. We have always had apostasy.
THE GREAT APOSTASY, MAKING MARY COREDEMPTRIX, is still to come AFTER THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE by the teachings of the Satan-possessed False Prophet.
When Satan is cast out of Heaven "INTO" the Earth, he does not come up to indwell the False Prophet until after the First-Trump Rapture.
Rev 12:7-9 says, "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out INTO THE EARTH, and his angels were cast out with him."
Rev 17:8 says, "The beast that thou sawest was (i.e., in Judas Iscariot, the first son of perdition), and is not (in man now); and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition (the last son of perdition, the False Prophet): and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."
I think Satan will try to unite all religions in worship of the "Queen of Heaven," making Mary Coredemptrix. Satan tried it before, and "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun" (Eccl 1:9). Job 11:6 says, "the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is!"
Once the Pope proclaims Mary Co-Redemptrix, all religions can unite under her banner, never mind who accepts Christ and who does not.
Once she is proclaimed Co-Redemptrix by the Pope, the Queen will unite all religions under her mantle.
"Queen Over All
"Marian advocates often quote Saint Louis de Montfort, who was a great devotee of Our Lady. Saint Louis de Montfort predicted that:
"The power of Mary over all devils will be particularly outstanding in the last period of time. She will extend the Kingdom of Christ over the idolators and Moslems, and there will come a glorious era in which Mary will be ruler and queen of human hearts. [Note 54]
"Catholic visionary Mary of Agreda, who wrote the classic "Mystical City of God," conveyed what was told to her about the final era of peace:
"Before the Second Coming of Christ, Mary must, more than ever, shine in mercy, might and grace in order to bring unbelievers into the Catholic Faith. The powers of Mary in the last times over demons will be very conspicuous. Mary will extend the reign of Christ over the heathens and Mohammedans, and it will be a time of great joy when Mary, as Mistress and Queen of Hearts is enthroned. [Note 55]
"Rome will Rule
"When the apparition of Mary speaks of unity, she means unity under the Roman Catholic Church. It is under the Church of Rome that "Mary" wishes to establish world unity.
"Both humanity [the whole world] and the Church [the Roman Catholic Church] will experience this new era.… you will as of today see my light becoming stronger and stronger, until it encircles the whole earth, ready now to open itself to the new day, which will begin with the Triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world. [Note 56]
For the Notes, go to http://www.hissheep.org/israeli/mary_queen_of_muslims.html
"A true reunification of Christians is not possible unless it be in the perfection of truth. And truth has been kept intact only in the Catholic Church, which must preserve it, defend it and proclaim it to all without fear. [Note 57]
"Furthermore, Pope Pius IX made this remarkable prediction in 1878 concerning Mary's role to establish the world under her Church, the Roman Catholic Church:
"We expect that the Immaculate Virgin and Mother of God, Mary, through her most powerful intercession, will bring it about that our Holy Mother the Catholic Church… will gain in influence from day to day among all nations and in all places, prosper and rule from ocean to ocean, from the great stream to the ends of the earth; that she will enjoy peace and liberty… and there will be then one fold and one shepherd. [Note 58]
"Queen of Muslims?
"Think of the regions of our world today that are potential time bombs - powder kegs waiting to be ignited by some religious dispute. Can anyone imagine how religious differences could be resolved in these areas? Who alive on planet earth today could act as a mediator or diplomat that has the ability to bring about a peaceful resolution? Certainly for such an historic event to occur, a supernatural miracle would be required. There are some who are saying that Marian apparitions and the messages that "Mary" gives from heaven provide such a possibility.
"While the title of this section may seem strange to the reader, it is appropriate, as we will see. How could "Mary" have any influence on the millions of Muslims who follow Allah? Those who have studied the Muslim's holy book, known as the Koran, may be aware of the answer. First, the Koran portrays Jesus Christ as a prophet, unique in His preincarnate nature, miraculous birth, miracles and moral stature. Muslims revere Jesus Christ.
As the Koran states: "The angels said to Mary: "God [Allah] bids you rejoice in a Word from Him. His name is the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary. He shall be noble in this world and in the world to come, and shall be one of those who are favored. He shall preach to men in his cradle and in the prime of manhood, and shall lead a righteous life." [Note 59]
"It is interesting to note that in the Koran, Jesus is almost exclusively referred to as "Jesus son of Mary," rather than "Son of God." The Koran vehemently denies that Jesus is the Son of God, yet it holds both Jesus and Mary in high esteem. More important to our context, is the fact that Mary is arguably more highly honored than Jesus in the Koran and in the Muslim world. The Muslims, like the Catholics, refer to her as "Our Lady." She is also venerated as a pure and holy saint in the Islamic world.
"Furthermore, Mary is mentioned no less than 34 times in the Koran. In addition, the 19th surah (chapter) of the Koran is named after Mary. Based on these facts alone, it is apparent that "Our Lady" is surely seen as blessed above all women by orthodox Muslims. In addition, consider the following three quotes taken directly from the Koran:
"And remember the angels' words to Mary. They said: "God has chosen you. He has made you pure and exalted you above womankind." [Note 60]
"The Messiah, the son of Mary, was no more than an apostle: other apostles passed away before him. His mother was a saintly woman. [Note 61]
"Whereupon he [Jesus] spoke and said: "I am the servant of God. He has given me the Book and ordained me a prophet. His blessing is upon me wherever I go, and He has exhorted me to be steadfast in prayer and to give alms as long as I shall live. He has exhorted me to honor my mother and has purged me of vanity and wickedness" [Note 62]"
Now I understand why Pope John Paul II kissed the Koran. He had dedicated his papacy to Mary.
"John Paul II dedicated papal encyclicals to Mary. In the one in March 1987, titled REDEMPTORIS MATER, he stated that his objective was to awaken and deepen Marian devotion and HE CALLED ON ALL CHRISTIANS TO LOOK TO "OUR COMMON MOTHER" AS A WAY OF BRINGING ABOUT UNITY BETWEEN THE DIVIDED CHURCHES OF THE WORLD."
He exalted Mary as MEDIATRIX and CO-REDEMPTRESS. In his general audience of December 13, 1995, he observed that the Vatican II Council applied the title of Mediatix to Mary and spoke of her “mediating role” and “her cooperation in a wholly singular way in the work of restoring supernatural life to souls” and “her exceptional role in the work of redemption” (“Council’s Teaching on Mary Is Rich and Positive,” Dec. 13, 1995, L’Osservatore Romano, English edition).
John Paul II even used the term "worship" to describe devotion to Mary. In his general audience of May 7, 1997, the Pope said that "MARIAN WORSHIP in the ecclesial community ... is based on the will of Christ" and "MARY IS THE PATH THAT LEADS TO CHRIST..." (Vatican Information Service, May 7, 1997). He concluded by urging all Christians to acknowledge Mary’s "providential role in the path of salvation."

THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
Jer_7:18 says, "The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may PROVOKE ME TO ANGER." It looks like the apostasy, the worship of THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, will precede the Day of God's Wrath.
Jer_44:17-19 says, "But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. 18 But since we left off to burn incense to THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. 19 And when we burned incense to THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?"
Jer_44:25 says, "Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows."
Catholicism says, "Mary was chosen as Mother of Christ in order that she might become a partner in the redemption of the human race."
However, help by Mary is not necessary. Heb 10:14 says, "by one offering he hath perfected FOR EVER them that are sanctified."
Wikipedia also says, "The first Mariological definition and basis for the title of Mary Queen of Heaven developed at the Council of Ephesus, where Mary was defined to be the Mother of God."
Mary was the mother of Jesus' human body, not the "Mother of God." God has no Mother.
"The Catholic Church from the earliest times venerated the Queen of Heaven, according to Pius XII:" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_of_Heaven)
"Queen of Heaven was a title given to a number of ancient sky goddesses in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East, in particular Anat, Isis, Innana, Astarte, Hera and possibly Asherah (by the prophet Jeremiah). Elsewhere, Nordic Frigg also bore this title. In Greco-Roman times Hera, and her Roman aspect Juno bore this title. Forms and content of worship varied. The title Queen of Heaven is used by Catholics and Orthodox Christians for Mary." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_of_heaven_(antiquity)
BELIEF - CONFESSION - SALVATION
We do not need Mary to intercede for us.
Acts 16:31 says, "BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND THOU SHALT BE SAVED."
Romans 10:9-13: "If thou shalt CONFESS with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt BELIEVE in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, THOU SHALT BE SAVED. . .for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED."
Joh 3:16-18 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever BELIEVETH in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be SAVED. 18 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."
Rom_6:14: "sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under GRACE."
Rom_11:5-6 says, "Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of GRACE. 6 And if BY GRACE, then is it NO MORE OF WORKS: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace".
SAVED BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH, NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST
Eph 2:4-10 says, "God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 "Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (BY GRACE YE ARE SAVED) 6: And HATH (past tense) RAISED US UP TOGETHER, AND MADE US SIT TOGETHER IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS (i.e., at the First-Trump Rapture): 7: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his GRACE in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8: For BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH; AND THAT NOT OF YOURSELVES: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: 9: NOT OF WORKS, LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST. 10: For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
Rom_4:16 says, "Therefore it is of FAITH, that it might be by GRACE; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the FAITH of Abraham; who is the father of us all".
WORKS EQUAL DEBT
Rom_3:23 says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God".
Rom_4:4 says, "Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of DEBT."
Rom_5:12 says, "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that ALL HAVE SINNED".
We could never do enough works to be saved. No one in the Old Testament was saved by works.
Isa_64:6 says, "But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away."
Eze_33:13 says, "When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMITTED, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT."
"WHAT THEN? SHALL WE SIN"?
Rom_6:15 says, "What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid."
Rom_5:21 says, "That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord."
Gal_2:21 says, "I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain."
Gal_5:4 says, "Christ is become of no effect unto you, WHOSOEVER OF YOU ARE JUSTIFIED BY THE LAW; YE ARE FALLEN FROM GRACE."
Gal 5:18 says, "IF YE BE LED OF THE SPIRIT, YE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW."
Tit_3:7 says, "That being justified by his grace, we should be made HEIRS according to the hope of eternal life."
1Co 3:8-15 says, "Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. 10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11 For OTHER FOUNDATION CAN NO MAN LAY THAN THAT IS LAID, WHICH IS JESUS CHRIST. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire."
TIME OF REWARDS, DAY OF GOD'S WRATH
Rev 11:17-19 says, "We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come (i.e., the Second Advent is 7 months future, Eze 39:12,13); because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, and THY WRATH IS COME, AND THE TIME OF THE DEAD, THAT THEY SHOULD BE JUDGED, AND THAT THOU SHOULDEST GIVE REWARD unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. 19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament (i.e., in it are 2 stones): and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."
THE TWO STONES, A MOUNTAIN AND SATAN'S HOME, WORMWOOD
Rev 8:8-11 says, "And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great MOUNTAIN burning with fire was cast into the sea (i.e., the Mediterranean): and the third part of the sea became blood; 9 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. 10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great STAR (aster, star, asteroid, meteorite) 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 DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, THE DAY OF THE LORD
Isa 22:5 says, "For it is a day of trouble".
Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here? (i.e., Babylon) and whom hast thou here (the Satan-indwelt False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here (at Babylon), as he (Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high (in the asteroid Wormwood), and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock? 17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 He will surely violently TURN AND TOSS THEE LIKE A BALL into a large country (Iraq, not tiny Israel): there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down."
SCRIPTURE HAS A LOT TO SAY ABOUT THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, THE DAY OF THE LORD
Job_21:30 says, "the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? they shall be brought forth to the day of wrath."
Pro_10:2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death (i.e., because the Last-Trump Rapture takes place at that time.)
Pro_11:4 says, "Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but RIGHTEOUSNESS DELIVERETH FROM DEATH" (i.e., because the Last-Trump Rapture takes place on the Day of God's Wrath, just before Satan's asteroid Wormwood hits Earth).
Zep_1:15 says, "That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness".
Rom_2:5 says, "But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God".
Isa_2:12 says, "For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low."
Isa_13:6 says, "Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty."
Isa_13:9 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it."
Isa_34:8 says, "For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion" (i.e., Jerusalem).
Jer_46:10 says, "For this is the day of the Lord GOD of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and THE SWORD SHALL DEVOUR, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord GOD of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country (i.e., at Babylon) by the river Euphrates."
Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and A FLAMING SWORD (i.e., Satan's asteroid Wormwood) which turned every way (rotated and orbited), to keep the way of (or to) the tree of life" (which is on Saturn).

Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid (sathar, be absent, i.e., because of the Last-Trump Rapture) in the day of the LORD'S anger."
Zec_14:1 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee."

Here is the verse the Lord put a rectangle of light on in a darkened room. I am to declare this.
Jer 50:2 says, "Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces."

Rev 18:21 says, "And a mighty angel took up a STONE like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all."
BEFORE THAT HAPPENS, TWO RAPTURES WILL TAKE PLACE
1. THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, I Thess 4:13-18, ON THE DAY OF CHRIST, THE LORD'S DAY, THE DAY OF THE LORD JESUS
ON SUNDAY, maybe on Ascension Day, the Eastern Orthodox Easter, May 5, 2013.
Rev 1:9-11 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (Sunday), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".
1Co_5:5 says, "To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus."
2Co_1:14 says, "As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Php_1:10 says, "That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ".
Php_2:16 says, "Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain."
2Th_2:2 says, "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand."
2. THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, I Cor 15:51-54, Rev 6:17, 7:14, ON THE DAY OF THE LORD,
ON THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, probably on the Feast of Trumpets, Mon. Sept 14, 2015.
Rev 18:4 says, "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Agape
