A LILY OF ISRAEL

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: AMAZING DISCOVERIES, Stranger than Fiction! from the archives of J.R. Church (terri.pitn@gmail.com)

Did You Say His Name Is Lucifer?

"That is the common belief for the devil's name, because Isaiah 14:12 says so. The King James Version of the Bible reads:

"How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"

"I suppose no one has ever questioned the English rendering of the Hebrew text. Some Bibles go so far as to translate the name as: "O day-star, son of the morning!" (the American Standard Bible), or, "O shining one, son of the dawn"! (Young's Bible Translation).

"The name Lucifer originated with the Latin Vulgate Bible published by St. Jerome (c. 345-c.419) in the late fourth century. The Latin translates the Hebrew text as "Lucifer." And that has become the accepted name:

"Quomodo cecidisti de caelo lucifer qui mane oriebaris corruisti in terram qui vulnerabas gentes" (Isaiah 14:12, Jerome, Latin Vulgate).

"But the Hebrew text tells a different story - a story overlooked for centuries. I'm sure many scholars have read the Hebrew text, but I guess it never occurred to them that the devil's name is...is...well, the Hebrew text (Hebrew reads from right to left), calls him "hey, yod, lamed, lamed", that, if transliterated into English, spells - HELL.

"Yep! That is the name of the devil! Old Mr. Hell. Perhaps the name of sheol (Hebrew) or hades (Greek) was given the English name of "hell" as a namesake of the old dragon, himself!"

INCOMING EMAIL, RE: great tribulation

According to my timeline, we have about 1-year until the comet Wormwood drama starts the Great Tribulation Period. Just imagine the chaos we are witnessing in Baltimore times a thousand race across the U.S. and around the world as the comet Wormwood speeds towards a collision course with earth. There will be worldwide devastation, but mankind will survive according to Rev 6:12-Rev 8. We have about 1-year to get spiritually, physically and mentally prepared. God Bless

> > According to my timeline, we have about 1-year until the comet Wormwood drama starts the Great Tribulation Period.

You think the impact of the comet Wormwood starts the Great Tribulation?

I THINK THE IMPACT OF SATAN'S ASTEROID WORMWOOD WILL BE ON THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH AT THE END OF THE SHORTENED GREAT TRIBULATION

To me, the day of impact will be the great and terrible Day of the Lord, the day of the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor. 15:51-54, and the day Jesus receives his millennial kingdom.

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."

2Co_5:10 says, "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad."

Heb_10:27 says, "But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries."

Jud_1:6 says, "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day."

Rev_20:4 says, "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

THE DAY OF THE LORD IS JESUS' LONG DAY THAT BEGINS THE THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF CHRIST

Isa_13:6 says, "Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty."

Joe 1:15 says "Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."

JOSHUA'S LONG DAY, THE FORERUNNER OF JESUS' LONG DAY WHEN WORMWOOD WILL IMPACT EARTH AND TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN

Zec 14:1-3 says, "Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle" (i.e., on Joshua's Long Day).

Jos 10:11-14 says, "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, 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."

Joshua's Long Day prefigures Jesus' Long Day. As the Millennium begins, Israel will be attacked by the army under Gog (Ezek. 38). Two main pieces of an asteroid will impact Earth (Rev. 8:8,10). Ezek. 38:20 says "the mountains (i.e., of Rev. 8:8-11) shall be thrown down." The Earth will be turned upside down (Isa. 24:1), and the Lord will "cast down great stones from heaven upon them" and again, there will be "more which died with hailstones than they whom the children of Israel slew with the sword" (Joshua 10:11).

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."

WORMWOOD'S IMPACT CAN'T BE THE DAY OF THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, BECAUSE IT HITS EARTH AFTER THE SEVENTH SEAL IS BROKEN

Jesus is not given the 7-sealed book until after the first Rapture.

Rev 5:6-10 says, "And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8 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 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; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on (epi, on or over) the earth."

Rev 8:1,2 says, "And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets."

Rev 8:5 says, "And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake."

THERE IS AN EARTHQUAKE AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, NOT AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE

Rev 8:5-11 says, "And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into (eis, to or into) the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. 6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 7 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; 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) 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 FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE, MID-TRIB, NO EARTHQUAKE

Rev 4:1 says, "After this (i.e., after Jesus' warning message to the church of Laodicea) 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".

Rev 10:11 says, "And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

Therefore, the "RISE" in Rev. 11:1 is the same as the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 4:1.

Rev 11:1-3 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE, and measure the temple of God (i.e., we are the temple of the Holy Spirit), and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 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 (i.e., Moses and Elijah), and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days (i.e., during the Great Tribulation), clothed in sackcloth."

THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE, SIXTH SEAL, END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, GREAT EARTHQUAKE

Rev 6:12,13 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."

Rev 11:11-15 says, "And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them (i.e., Moses and Elijah), and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 12 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. 14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. 15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever."

Rev 11:17-19 says, "We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; 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 (i.e., at the Judgment Seat of Christ) 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: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an EARTHQUAKE, and great hail."

Isa 29:5-8 says, "Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly. 6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with EARTHQUAKE, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire. 7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel (i.e., Jerusalem), even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. 8 It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion."

It looks like the meteorite that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia on Feb 15, 2013 was a warning of what will take place when Wormwood hits Babylon. That will be an extinction event. There will be few men left.

In 1908, a meteorite hit Lake Checo in the Tunguska event about 2000 miles from Chelyabinsk. Iridium has been found in the area, which shows that an asteroid impacted Earth.
(http://phys.org/news/2012-05-team-evidence-lake-cheko-impact.html)

An iridium layer was found at the KT boundary, when the dinosaurs were wiped out, and has been found at 100 sites around the world. Shocked quartz (coesite), result of large impacts, has been found at more than 30 sites. The chromium isotopic ratios at impact sites are the same as in carbonaceous chondrites.

Carbonaceous chondrites are of the most pristine matter known. They have some water in them. Their source seems to be our Asteroid Belt, as with Ceres. To me, this shows that Satan's planet Rahab that split apart had water. The CR group have nickel-iron or iron sulfide, showing that Rahab had an iron core.

"Iridium is one of the rarest non-radioactive, non-noble gas elements in the Earth's crust, but is relatively common in meteorites. Iridium and osmium are the densest elements, and both are believed to have dropped below the Earth's crust toward the core when the Earth was young and molten. The concentration of iridium in meteorites matches the concentration of iridium in the Earth as a whole."
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iridium)

Lake Cheko, Tunguska, Russia, June 30, 1908: "Further evidence came to light they say in 2009 when they returned to the lake and performed a magnetic survey, which they say showed an anomaly in the same location as their seismic measurements had detected. Now, after three more years of studying evidence they collected from the site, they've concluded that Lake Cheko is indeed an impact crater and that the dense object beneath the lakebed is the smoking gun."
http://phys.org/news/2012-05-team-evidence-lake-cheko-impact.html

Chelyabinsk, Russia, Feb 15, 2013: "On account of its high velocity and shallow angle of atmospheric entry, the object exploded in an air burst over Chelyabinsk Oblast, at a height of around 29.7 km (18.4 miles, 97,400 feet).[7][8] The explosion generated a bright flash, producing a hot cloud of dust and gas that penetrated to 26.2 km, and many surviving small fragmentary meteorites, as well as a large shock wave. The bulk of the object's energy was absorbed by the atmosphere, with a total kinetic energy before atmospheric impact equivalent to approximately 500 kilotons of TNT (about 1.8 PJ), 20–30 times more energy than was released from the atomic bomb detonated at Hiroshima."

SATAN'S ASTEROID WORMWOOD

Isa 22:5 says, "For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord GOD of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains."

Isa 22:16-19 says, "What hast thou here (i.e., Babylon)? and whom hast thou here (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet), that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he (i.e., Satan) that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock (i.e., in the asteroid Wormwood)? 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: 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."

Isa_24:6 says, "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."

Zec 14:1-4 says, "Behold, the DAY OF THE LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle (i.e., on Joshua's Long Day). 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south."

This cannot precede the great and terrible Day of the Lord.

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." Agape

IN THE WORLD WE WILL HAVE TRIBULATION

Jesus said, "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33

MY REPLY TO PASTOR BOB'S POST ON FIVE DOVES

Re: Pastor Bob (26 Apr 2015)
""Pre-Tribulation Truth - 8"", and following

> > 41. The Bible makes a distinction during the Tribulation. Revelation 7:1-17 notes the sealing of 144,000 sealed servants from the twelve tribes of Israel.

To me, the 144,000 Israelites are sealed on the Day of God's Wrath at the end of the shortened Great Tribulation.

Rev 6:17 says, "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"

> > Jeremiah 30:7 notes that the Tribulation as "Jacob's trouble". Again, the focus is on Israel, not the Bride/Church.

I take it that the time of Jacob's trouble is one literal day. No other day is like it.

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 (i.e., the 144,000) shall be saved out of it."

> > 49. The Bride/Church is absolutely central in Revelation 1-3 (mentioned 19X) and is also seen in Revelation 4 and 5, in the description of the 24 elders. Notably absent in those five chapters is any mention of the nation of Israel.

I think the 24 elders in Rev. 4:4 are the 12 patriarchs of Israel and the 12 apostles of Israel. They are "the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel" that "shall gather themselves unto thee" at the time of the first trumpet.

There are two trumpet calls, two Raptures.

Num 10:1-4 says, "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them (i.e., both) for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. 3 And when they shall blow with them (i.e., both), all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4 And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes (i.e., the 12 patriarchs), which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee."

1Th 4:16,17 tells us about the first trumpet. It 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."

The "last trump" is in 1Co 15:51-54. It 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."

Pastor Bob (26 Apr 2015) ""Pre-Tribulation Truth - 9""

> > 52...try to find where it specifically says that the Bride/Church will be in the Tribulation. It simply does not exist.

In the Preview of "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", John, one of the elders, played out the Rapture. He became in the Spirit "in tribulation".

In Rev. 1:9-11, he said, "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 (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (i.e., possibly Thursday, the day of both the Crucifixion and later, the Ascension of Jesus), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".

Mat 24:20-22 says, "But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then (i.e., following Mid-Trib) 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."

Joh 16:31-33 says, "Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe? 32 Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Act_14:22 says, "Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God."

Rom 5:3 says, "we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience".

Rom_12:12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer".

Rev_2:9 says, "I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."

The overcomers of all church groups will be in the first half of the Tribulation. The church of Thyatira is threatened to be left behind at the time of the Mid-Trib Rapture to go into the Great Tribulation. Rev_2:22 says, "Behold, I will cast her (i.e., the church of Thyatira) into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into GREAT TRIBULATION, except they repent of their deeds."

Rev_7:14 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."

> > The Bride/Church is promised a Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Do you believe it?

No. I believe that the Bride is promised a Pre-Great Tribulation Rapture.

> > 81. In the book of Revelation, "Wrath" is found 10X: Revelation 6:16; 6:17; 11:18; 14:10; 14:19; 15:1; 15:7; 16:1; 16:19; and 19:15. Why isn't the Bride/Church mentioned in those chapters?

It is. The "rise" in Rev. 11:1 refers to the Mid-Trib Rapture of the Bride/Church.

Rev 10:11 says, "And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy AGAIN before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings."

Therefore, the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 4:1 and the "RISE" of Rev. 11:1 are the first Rapture, and the "COME UP HITHER" of Rev. 11:12 is the last Rapture.

Rev 4:1,2 says, "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 (lit., became) in the spirit".

Rev 11:1,2 says, "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, RISE, and measure the temple of God (i.e., we are the temple of the Holy Spirit), and the altar, and them that worship therein. 2 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."

Rev 11:12 is the second Rapture. It says, "And they (i.e., Moses and Elijah) 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."

> > 84. The Bride/Church will not be "overtaken by the Day of the Lord" as 1st Thessalonians 5:1-9 states. The "Day of the Lord" is just another phrase which defines the Tribulation. The Bride/Church will not be caught in it, it will be caught up from it!

To me, the Day of the Lord is the day Jesus receives his millennial kingdom at the end of the Great Tribulation. That day is the day of the Last-Trump Rapture and the Day of God's Wrath.

Mal_4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD". Elijah comes at the time of the First-Trump Rapture Mid-Trib.

2Pe_3:10 says, "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."

Amo_5:18 says, "Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light."

Act_2:20 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come".

Rev 6:12 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".

Joe_1:15 says, "Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come."

Joe_2:11 says, "And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?"

Joe_2:31 says, "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come."

Rev 6:17 says, "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"

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."

The Day of the Lord is also Jesus' Long Day, of which Joshua's Long Day was a type. On that day, the asteroid Wormwood will destroy Babylon (Rev. 8:11), turning the world upside down.

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

Isa 24:6 says, "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."

Jos 10:11-14 says, "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, 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."

> > 87. ...The judgment could not happen to Sodom until Lot was taken out of there. So also, the Tribulation cannot happen until the Bride/Church is taken out of the world in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture.

To me, the First-Trump Rapture will be as the days of Noah, and the Last-Trump Rapture will be as the days of Lot. The asteroid impact on the Day of the Lord will be much like the asteroid impact in the days of Lot. It split the Earth from Turkey to Lake Nyassa in Africa, forming the Great Rift Valley and punching down the bedrock a the Dead Sea.

MID-TRIB: WE ARE CAUGHT UP WHEN SATAN IS CAST DOWN

Eph 6:12,13 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day (i.e., Mid-Trib, when Satan is cast out of Heaven), and having done all, to stand (histemi, to bring up)."

Rev 12:6-12 says, "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. 7 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. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now (arti, just now) is come salvation (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., the Mid-Trib Rapture), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time" (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation).
