A POST ON FIVE DOVES, RE: Gail (2 Jan 2014) Jer 49:23

I have a question concerning Rev. 4:1 alluding to a rapture. How can the Apostle John refer to a rapture in Rev. 4:1, and then to prophesy in Rev. 10:11? If John represents a rapture, how then does he prophesy? Therefore either Rev. 4:1 alludes to a rapture or it just means he was taken in the spirit to see all these things so to share with the church what is to come? Blessings, Happy New Year!

MY REPLY

John is an apostle. When he goes up, we go up. Together with the apostles, believers are the Temple of the Holy Spirit.

1Co_3:16 says, "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"

The Revelation of Jesus Christ is a miracle play to reveal to us things to come. Christ wrote the script and is the director. John is cast as narrator, scribe and actor. It is written to the Church. The time is 10 days before the First-Trump Rapture, i.e., our days.

Rev 1:3 says, "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand."

Rev 22:10 says, "And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand."

Rev 2:10 says, "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."

1Pe_5:4 says, "And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."

Like our movies, it starts off with an introduction and a Preview. Jesus speaks, then John speaks.

Rev 1:8 says, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."

The Preview is in Rev 1:9-18. It starts of with, "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 (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was (ginomai, became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.

After the scene in heaven after the Rapture, we are told how the play is organized. This is crucial to understand the timing of events.

Rev 1:19 says, "Write the things which thou hast seen (i.e., before the 1st First-Trump Rapture), and the things which are (at the time of the First Trump Rapture), and the things which shall be HEREAFTER" (after the first Rapture)."

After Jesus' monologue to the churches, the action begins with the First-Trump Rapture.

Rev 4:1-4 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, COME UP HITHER, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter (after the First-Trump Rapture). 2 And immediately I was (ginomai, became) in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one (i.e., the God/man Jesus) sat on the throne. 3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper (last stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (first stone in the breastplate, Jesus is the first and the last): and there was a rainbow (Saturn's rings) round about the throne (on the 3rd heaven, Saturn), in sight like unto an emerald (Judah's stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah). 4 And round about the throne were four and twenty seats (thrones): and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders (i.e., 12 patriarchs and 12 apostles of Israel) sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold" (given to them after the first Rapture).

Rev 5:8,9 says, "And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they (i.e., the raptured saints) sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation".

These saints are out of every nation. Therefore, the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 4:1 was the first Rapture.

> > How can the Apostle John refer to a rapture in Rev. 4: 1, and then to prophesy in Rev. 10: 11?

After the first Rapture, Jesus, the Lamb of God, is given the 7-sealed book, assumed to be the Title Deed of the Earth. Gradually, the seals are opened. The first in Rev. 6, and the 6th in Rev. 9:13.

Rev_8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour."

There is also silence on Earth while Jesus is being seated as judge at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

Hab_2:20 says, "But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him."

Next, 7 angels are given 7 trumpets.

Rev. 10:5-7 says, "And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, 6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time (i.e., delay) no longer: 7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets."

Before the finish is revealed, there is something else we should know. In Rev 10:11, John is told to "prophesy again (palin, oscillatory repetition, once more, again)".

Rev. 11 goes over the same territory that John has just finished to give us information about the 2 witnesses.

Rev. 11:1 starts with the "rise," the First-Trump Rapture, just as in Rev. 4:1. The second Rapture is the "Come up hither" in verse 12. The two witnesses, Moses and Elijah, prophesy for 1260 days between the First-Trump Rapture, Mid-Trib, and the Last-Trump Rapture at the end of the Great Tribulation.

However, the Great Tribulation is to be shortened or no flesh would be saved.

Mat_24:22 says, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."

Rev 11:1 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE (i.e., in the First-Trump Rapture), and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein."

At the first Rapture, all participants can be measured, although we are not given the full number. At the last Rapture, only the 144,000 Israelites can be measured.

Rev 7:9 says, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands".

We are the temple of the Holy Spirit. 1Co_3:16 says, "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?"

Rev 11:2 says, "But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months (i.e., during the Great Tribulation). 3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth."

Rev 11:12,13 says, "And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, COME UP HITHER. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."

The worldwide earthquake happens on the Day of God's Wrath. The mountain-sized asteroid will hit the NE Mediterranean Sea. Damascus will cease to be a city.

Eze 38:18-20 says, "And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. 19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; 20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground."

Before the catastrophe on the Day of God's Wrath, the second Rapture takes place, and before it is over, "every living soul died in the sea."

Rev 16:17-21 says, "And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 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. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great."

Rev 18:4 is also talking about the second Rapture. It 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."

Why? Rev 18:2 says, "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird."

Rev 18:21 is the impact of Satan's asteroid Wormwood that destroys Babylon. It 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."

Hope this gets you better oriented to understand The Revelation of Jesus Christ. Agape

A POST ON FIVE DOVES, RE: Steve Mullin (2 Jan 2014) "Blood Moons and Major Events"

Just reviewing the last 3 major events associated with the tetrads to glean any pattern or information that may be relevant to the timing of the rapture and sudden destruction. Right now we have about 105 days until the first of the four blood moons takes place on April 15th. As most of you know, the last three times this sequence of events took place, there were major prophetic implications w/regard to Israel and the world. In 1492, the Spanish Inquisition led to the expulsion of Jews from Spain, leading to Columbus setting sail and discovering America. The next time it happened about 450 plus years later, Israel was reborn in a day fulfilling the famous prophecy from Isaiah in May of 1948. Then in June of 1967, the Jewish people recaptured Jerusalem in the 6 day war. Amazing how this sign of 4 blood moons falling on the feast days has coincided with these events the last 3 times the major events occurred. Stands to reason that something major could happen shortly because after the next set in 2014-2015, it doesn't occur again for another 500 years or so. Below is a summary of the historical dates associated with the tetrad about the time of the major events:

Three sets of blood-red moons that corresponded to significant events:
The Spanish Inquisition final year 1492 when the Alhambra Decree ordered all remaining Jews who would not convert to Christianity to leave Spain, the 1948 War of Independence and the 1967 Six-Day War had back-to-back, blood-red moons occur on the first day of Passover and Sukkot the following two years or beginning the same year of the 1967 Six-Day War for two years.

The Spanish Inquisition — 1492
* Passover, April 2, 1493
* Sukkoth, Sept. 25, 1493
* Passover, March 22, 1494
* Sukkoth, Sept. 15, 1494
The War of Independence — 1948
* Passover, April 13, 1949
* Sukkoth, Oct. 7, 1949
* Passover, April 2, 1950
* Sukkoth, Sept. 26, 1950
The Six-Day War — 1967
* First Day of Passover, April 24, 1967
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 18, 1967
* First Day of Passover. April 13, 1968
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 6, 1968
What will occur in the 2013–2015 time period?
* First Day of Passover, April 15, 2014
* First Day of Sukkoth, Oct. 8, 2014
* First Day of Passover, April 4, 2015
* First Day of Sukkoth, Sept. 28, 2015
Fall Feasts in 2015
* Rosh Hashanah (The Feast of Trumpets), Sept. 14
* Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement), Sept. 23
* Sukkoth (The Feast of Tabernacles), Sept. 28

The Alhambra Decree was made in March of 1492. Columbus began his voyage and the results vary for the exact timing he arrived to the new world, but it was most likely months later before the first of the 4 blood moons in April of 1493. Major event, then the 4 blood moons on feast days.

Second, Israel became a nation on May 15th, 1948. The first of the four blood moons on feast days began the following year on April 24th, 1967. Major event, then the 4 blood moons on feast days.

Third, Jerusalem was recaptured during the six day war during the first week of June 1967. The first blood moon took place before the six day war April 24th 1967, but the other 3 blood moons took place after.

11 out of 12 parts of the tetrads took place before the major event.

Because the rapture would make sense as the next major "event", it could literally happen any time now according to precedent. If the major event is a war, seems like that wouldn't be "as in the days of Noah" where everything is business as usual. Also wondering if one of the 4 blood moons of the tetrad is the blood moon spoken of in prophecy about the sun turning to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord. Combine the upcoming blood moons with the state of the world and things could change dramatically any day. Steve M

> > Just reviewing the last 3 major events associated with the tetrads to glean any pattern or information that may be relevant to the timing of the rapture and sudden destruction.

I don't associate the First-Trump Rapture of I Thess 4:13-18 with "sudden destruction". The Rapture comes before the seven-sealed book is given to Jesus, and before the first seal is broken.

1Th 4:16-18 says, "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. 4:18 Wherefore COMFORT ONE ANOTHER with these words."

"GOD HATH NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH...COMFORT YOURSELVES"

Sudden destruction on the Day of the Lord, the Day of God's Wrath, does not fall on the brethren, the believers. It falls on unbelievers.

1Th 5:1-11 says, "But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the DAY OF THE LORD so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when THEY shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon THEM, as travail upon a woman with child; and THEY shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For THEY that sleep sleep in the night; and THEY that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For GOD HATH NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore COMFORT YOURSELVES together, and edify one another, even as also ye do."

Sudden destruction comes after the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor 15:51-54. It comes after the sixth seal is broken in Rev. 6:12 on the Day of God's Wrath (v. 17).

THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD, THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH

1Co 15:51-54 says, "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."

Rev 6:12-17 says, "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. 15 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; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"

Rev 7:9 says, "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands".

Rev 7:14,15 says, "And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore are they before the throne of God".

> > Stands to reason that something major could happen shortly because after the next set in 2014-2015, it doesn't occur again for another 500 years or so

I agree.

> > Fall Feasts in 2015
> > * Rosh Hashanah (The Feast of Trumpets), Sept. 14
> > * Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement), Sept. 23
> > * Sukkoth (The Feast of Tabernacles), Sept. 28

I think the Feast of Trumpets, Mon. Sept. 14, 2015 will be the Day of God's Wrath. There will be a solar eclipse on the Eve of Trumpets to announce it. The coming Jubilee should be announced on the Day of Atonement, Sept. 23, 2015. Then there will be 7 months to Nisan 1, 2016, the first day of the Jubilee, Regnal and Sacred years. I expect the Second Advent on that day, our Sat. Apr. 9, 2016.

JESUS IS LORD OF THE SABBATH, SATURDAY

Mat_12:8 says, "the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day."
Mar_2:28 says, "the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath".
Luke 6:5 says, "the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath."

Saturday, the Sabbath, is from the Latin Saturni dies, "Saturn's day," and the throne of the God/man Jesus is on the planet Saturn (Eze 1:1,26-28). Therefore, the Second Advent on Saturday seems appropriate.

Eze 1:1,26-28 says, "the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of GOD....26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone (sapphire means dear to the planet Saturn, from the Sanskrit Sani, Saturn, and priya, dear): and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a MAN (i.e., the only God/man is Jesus) above upon it. 27 And I saw as the colour of amber (i.e., Saturn is amber), as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins (i.e., from the equator) even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness (i.e., Saturn's ring system) round about. 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD."

Rev 4:1-3 says, "After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. 2 And immediately I was (ginomai, became) in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one (i.e., the LORD Jesus) sat on the throne. 3 And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper (last stone in the breastplate) and a sardine stone (first stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is the first and the last, Rev 1:8): and there was a rainbow (i.e., Saturn's rings) round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald" (Judas stone in the breastplate, i.e., Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah).

Rev 1:8 "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."

THE SEVEN MONTHS BETWEEN THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH AND THE SECOND ADVENT

Eze 39:11-13 says, "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog. 12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. 13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD."

Jesus will be glorified at the Second Advent.

2Th_1:10 says, "When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day."

For there to be 7 months between Tishri 1 and Nisan 1, that year has to be a Leap Year, and 5776 is a Leap Year with the 13th month. To me, that seems to lock in the year of the Day of God's Wrath and the Second Advent.

INCOMING EMAIL

Thank you for your posts & replies on fivedoves.
God Bless you sister Agee, I hope you are well this time of year.
Just wanted to write ya a quick note on your reply about my recent post & 'time of Jacob's trouble' 42 months.

The Lord himself quotes from the Prophet Daniel's writings-
Matthew 24:15
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16.) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
Judea includes Jerusalem.
17.) Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house
18.) Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes
19.) And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20.) But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21.) For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22.) And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
down to verse 29
29.) Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Several verses of the above passages state- those days, it's plural. In 1stThessalonians & in 2Peter, God's word references the same 'Day of the Lord,' you refer to in Jeremiah 30.

1Th 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
2Pe 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
His word makes it clear, believers are not appointed to witness the 'wrath of God.' Yet Matthew 24:22 says 'the elect' is still on earth and is to flee because of the travail about to take place.
We could go back & forth on this,
but scripture in the many references recounted above show that the Day of Lord represents a time frame consisting of more than just one day for sure.
The following is from Mr.Ted Montgomery's site-

It is not even until after the Sixth Seal is opened (Revelation 6:16,17) that the word "wrath" appears in the Book of Revelation.
It is only at that point, after the cosmic disturbances (sun turns dark, moon turns red, etc.) have begun, that the unbelievers will realize that God's wrath is imminent- that is, that the great day of God's wrath (the "day of vengeance") is at hand.

Even disagreeing I am glad to get to write to you sister Agee. :)
God Bless, I love you, gail

MY REPLY

I'm glad you enjoy reading my posts.

I'm well. Hope you are too. Dave and I prayed for a spot of dry gangrene on my foot to go away, and it did. Thank you Lord.

I spent most of New Year's Day alone, and forgot to watch the Rose Parade in the morning. That night, I remembered and switched on Channel 5. There was a re-run of the parade. I got to see it after all. The first band I saw was Dobyns Bennett High School Band from Kingsport, TN. That gave me a thrill. I was still tingling when Dave walked in. I was in that band 3 years. We had to learn a new half-time show for each home game. I had to stay after school every evening to learn the new routine. But I had a blast doing it, and when I was a senior, our football team was State Champion, so the band got to go to all the games, not just the home games. I will never forget those days. On Fridays, for home games, we paraded down Broad Street, the main street from Church Circle to the railroad and cement plant, right after school too. That drew quite a crowd.

It seems that you are calling the Great Tribulation, the whole last half of the Tribulation, the Day of Jacob's Trouble. I think the Day of Jacob's Trouble will be the last day of the Great Tribulation, the great and terrible Day of the Lord, the Day of God's Wrath. I'll give you my reasons, and you can decide what you think.

Jer_30:7 says, "Alas! for that DAY is great, so that NONE IS LIKE IT: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it."

If "NONE IS LIKE IT", it seems to me that it has to be limited to one literal day, but it will be a long day.

JESUS' LONG DAY

I think that will be Jesus' Long Day, of which Joshua's Long Day was a type. The name Jesus is Joshua in Hebrew. When Earth gets hit by Satan's asteroid Wormwood, it will knock the Earth upside down. It will take some time to regain its equilibrium. That will cause another long day.

Isa_24:1 says, "Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."

Isa 24:5,6 says, "The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 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."

The curse devours the Earth when Satan's asteroid Wormwood impacts Earth.

Rev 8:10,11 says, "And the third angel sounded, and THERE FELL A GREAT STAR (aster, star, asteroid, or 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".

Wormwood will come in over Russia and hit Babylon. I think the meteorite that hit Russia last February was a sign. It may have been from the Asteroid Belt. They got a large piece out of the lake. That could be a piece of Satan's planet Rahab that split apart.

Isa 51:9 says, "Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut (lit., split) Rahab, and wounded the dragon?"

JOSHUA'S LONG DAY WAS CAUSED BY AN ASTEROID IMPACT

Jos 10:9-14 says, "Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, and went up from Gilgal all night. 10 And the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah. 11 And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, and were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD CAST DOWN GREAT STONES FROM HEAVEN UPON THEM unto Azekah, and they died: they were more which died with HAILSTONES than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword. 12 Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, SUN, STAND THOU STILL upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon. 13 AND THE SUN STOOD STILL, AND THE MOON STAYED (i.e., actually the Earth's rotation was temporarily slowed because of the initial jolt when the asteroid hit it), until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day. 14 And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel."

The next time, the LORD will do it without a man asking for the Sun to stand still.

BOOK OF JASHER
http://www.ccel.org/a/anonymous/jasher/88.htm

"60.And the Lord confounded them before the children at Israel, who smote them with a terrible slaughter in Gibeon, and pursued them along the way that goes up to Beth Horon unto Makkedah, and they fled from before the children of Israel.
61.And whilst they were fleeing, the Lord sent upon them HAILSTONES FROM HEAVEN, and more of them died by the hailstones, than by the slaughter of the children of Israel.
62.And the children of Israel pursued them, and they still smote them in the road, going on and smiting them.
63.And when they were smiting, the day was declining toward evening, and Joshua said in the sight of all the people, SUN, STAND THOU STILL upon Gibeon, and thou moon in the valley of Ajalon, until the nation shall have revenged itself upon its enemies.
64.And the Lord hearkened to the voice of Joshua, and THE SUN STOOD STILL in the midst of the heavens, AND IT STOOD STILL SIX AND THIRTY MOMENTS, and the moon also stood still and hastened not to go down a whole day.
65.And there was no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened to the voice of a man, for the Lord fought for Israel."

That was worth looking up. Earth stood still 36 moments. I take that to mean 36 minutes.

Mat 24:28-31 says, "For wheresoever the carcase (i.e., body, the Body of Christ) is (i.e., in Heaven), there will the eagles (high-flying Tribulation saints) be gathered together. 29 Immediately AFTER the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and THE STARS SHALL FALL FROM HEAVEN, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And THEN shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of HEAVEN to the other. "

Mar 13:24-27 says, "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. 26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven."

That is the Last-Trump Rapture. It was as the days of Lot.

Luk 17:29-37 says, "But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed (i.e., they will see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky). 31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. 35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever THE BODY (i.e., the Body of Christ) is (i.e., in Heaven), thither will the EAGLES be gathered together."

Isa_40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as EAGLES; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

May God bless you richly. Agape
