AN APPALACHIAN REDBUD TREE
MY REPLY TO A POST OF PASTOR BOB'S ON FIVE DOVES, RE: (3 May 2015) ""Pre-Tribulation Truth - 11""
> > I am well familiar with all the different points of view offered up by the various different positions and not a one offers any sort of credible collective evidence to even begin to come close to that of a Pre-Millennial, Pre- Tribulational Rapture! To deny or refute the evidence for the Pre-Tribulation Rapture of the Bride/Church is tantamount to denying the Words of Christ Jesus Himself, in Revelation 19:10, where it states, "For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." I am no Johnny-come-lately at the study of the Word of God. In 53-years, I have put well over a hundred thousand hours in the study of God's Word!
As for me, I have studied as hard as I can go for about 55 years.
In "The Revelation of Jesus Christ", the First-Trump Rapture is "at hand". It is at hand in both the first and last chapters.
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."
In the Preview of the Rapture in Rev 1:9-11, John was "IN TRIBULATION".
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 (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., the Day of Christ) , and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".
There is some important information for our days in Rev. 12 and 13 that I would like to focus our attention on.
IN REVELATION 12, NOTICE THAT THE SAINTS ARE JUST "NOW" IN HEAVEN WHEN THE DEVIL IS CAST OUT OF HEAVEN MID-TRIB
The meaning of the Greek word "arti" can be understood in Joh 14:7. It says, "If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth (arti) ye know him, and have seen him."
The word "arti" is used in Rev 12:10-12. It says, "I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, NOW (arti, just now, this instant, this moment, this day, this hour, at this very time, from henceforth, from now on, i.e., from MID-TRIB) is come salvation (soteria, rescue, deliverance, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture), and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren (i.e., Satan) is cast down (i.e., Mid-Trib), which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they (i.e., the saints that just arrived in heaven Mid-Trib) 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 (i.e., the Great Tribulation) 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, the last half of the Tribulation).
THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE TAKES PLACE MID-TRIB, BEFORE THE TEN KINGS RECEIVE THEIR KINGDOMS IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION
Rev 17:10-14 says, "And there are seven kings (i.e., kings of Babel, Babylon II, Media-Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire, Holy Roman Ecclesiastical Empire, and Babylon III): five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space (i.e., the shortened Great Tribulation). 11 And the beast that was, and is not (i.e., Satan), even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition (i.e., Satan enters into the False Prophet, the 2nd son of perdition; Judas Iscariot was the 1st). 12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are TEN KINGS, WHICH HAVE RECEIVED NO KINGDOM AS YET (i.e., AT MID-TRIB); but receive power as kings one hour with the beast (i.e., the Satan-possessed False Prophet). 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 (i.e., JUST RAPTURED MID-TRIB) ARE CALLED, AND CHOSEN, AND FAITHFUL."
IN REVELATION 13, WE READ ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST AND FALSE PROPHET THAT RULE DURING THE TRIBULATION
Both beasts come to power during the 7-year Tribulation, the Antichrist during the first half and the False Prophet during the last half, the Great Tribulation, which will be shortened or no flesh would be saved.
ACCORDING TO REV 13:5,6, THE RAPTURE TAKES PLACE MID-TRIB
Referring to the first half of the Tribulation, Rev 13:5,6 says, "And there was given unto him (i.e., Antichrist, the first beast) a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and POWER WAS GIVEN UNTO HIM TO CONTINUE FORTY AND TWO MONTHS (i.e., until MID-TRIB). 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and THEM THAT DWELL IN HEAVEN."
SCRIPTURE IS CONSISTENT. LUKE 21 AGREES WITH REV. 12 AND 13.
Luk 21:20-28 says, "And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21 Then (tote, at that time) let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains (i.e., flee to Petra MID-TRIB); and let them which are IN THE MIDST OF IT (i.e., MID-TRIB) DEPART OUT (EKCHOREO, DEPART, I.E., BE RAPTURED); and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22 For these be the days of vengeance (i.e., the beginning of the Great Tribulation), that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and JERUSALEM SHALL BE TRODDEN DOWN OF THE GENTILES, UNTIL THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES BE FULFILLED (i.e., at the end of the Great Tribulation). 25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth (i.e., at the end of the Great Tribulation): for the powers of heaven shall be shaken (i.e., the orbit of the asteroid Wormwood will line up with Earth). 27 And then (tote, at that time) shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (i.e., they see the Sign of the Son of Man in the sky at the end of the Great Tribulation). 28 And when these things begin to come to pass (i.e., at Mid-Trib), then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption (apolutrosis, deliverance, i.e., the First-Trump Rapture) draweth nigh."
THERE ARE TWO RAPTURES, 1TH 4:16,17 AND I COR 15:51-54
Since I Cor 15:51-54 is the "last trump", I Thess 4:16,17 is the first trump. There can't be a last trump without a first trump preceding it.
1Co 15:51,52 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."
"WE" CAN EVER BE WITH THE LORD AT THE FIRST RAPTURE, AND "WE" CAN BE CHANGED AT THE SECOND RAPTURE, BECAUSE THEY ARE AT TWO DIFFERENT TIMES.
THE TWO RAPTURES ARE AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF THE GREAT TRIBULATION, AND THEY ARE DIFFERENT, NONE ACTUALLY BECOME IMMORTAL UNTIL THE LAST RAPTURE.
Of the first trump Rapture, 1Th 4:16,17 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."
Of the last trump Rapture, 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 (i.e., at either Rapture), and THIS MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY (i.e., at the last Rapture). 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption (i.e., at either Rapture), and this mortal shall have put on immortality (i.e., at the last Rapture), then (tote, at that time) shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
THE TWO RAPTURES ARE LESS THAN 3.5 YEARS APART, BECAUSE THE GREAT TRIBULATION WILL BE SHORTENED
Mat_24:22 says, "And except those days (i.e., the Great Tribulation) should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
Mar_13:20 says, "And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days."
WHAT IS SO TERRIBLE THAT IT COULD THREATEN TO WIPE OUT ALL FLESH IN AN EXTINCTION EVENT LIKE THE ONE THAT WIPED OUT THE DINOSAURS AT THE KT BOUNDARY?
The impact of Satan's asteroid Wormwood at Babylon on the Euphrates can do it.
Rev 8:10,11 says, "And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star (aster, star, meteorite, asteroid) from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers (i.e., the Tigris and Euphrates), 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."
SATAN'S ASTEROID WORMWOOD IS THE "FLAMING SWORD" OF GEN 3:24
Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east (i.e., in the eastern sky) of the garden of Eden Cherubims (i.e., the 4 terrestrial planets, of which Earth is one, Eze. 1:15), and a FLAMING SWORD which turned every way (i.e., rotated and orbited), to keep the way of the tree of life."
Jer_12:12 says, "the sword of the LORD shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace."
WHEN THE PRESIDENT WAS GIVEN A 22" STATUE OF ISAIAH, I LOOKED UP ISA 22, AND WAS ASTONISHED AT WHAT I FOUND
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, Rev. 8:11) 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 (i.e., 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 (matastsab, fixed spot, MILITARY POST, i.e., east of Eden), and from thy state (maamad, position) shall he pull thee down."
The military post is the flaming sword of Gen. 3:24, Satan's asteroid Wormwood.
Gen 3:24 says, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden (i.e., in the eastern sky) Cherubims (i.e., terrestrial planets), and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
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 (chatsab, split, divided) Rahab (i.e., Satan's planet that is now our Asteroid Belt), and wounded the dragon?"
WHERE DOES THE FLAMING SWORD ORBIT?
Eze 10:2 says, "And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels (i.e., between the orbits of the terrestrial planets), even under the cherub (i.e., Satan, on the asteroid Wormwood), and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims (i.e., between the terrestrial planets), and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight."
> > 153. In Isaiah 61:1-2, the prophecy of Isaiah finishes where Jesus left off. After "the acceptable year of the Lord" (Grace - the Age of the Church) is the day of vengeance of our God after the Church age the Tribulation will come, i.e., "the day of vengeance of our God". We can better understand how God used Typology of the Bride/Church and the Pre-Tribulation Rapture which are so entwined in the New Testament text, then that day will come, with the Pre-Tribulation Rapture.
The "acceptable year of the Lord" in Isa 61:2 was 27/28 AD, the Jubilee Year that started Thur. Nisan 1, 3788, March 28, 27 AD, Julian Day 1,465,190, and ended Wed. Nisan 1, 3789, March 17, 28 AD, Julian day 1,465,545.
The "day of vengeance of our God" is the DAY OF THE LORD, THE DAY OF GOD'S WRATH, that will take place at the end of the future shortened Great Tribulation.
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".
Rev 6:17 says, "For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?"
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 (chereb, cutting instrument, i.e., the asteroid Wormwood) 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 BY THE RIVER EUPHRATES."
Jer 51:11 says, "Make bright the arrows; gather the shields: the LORD hath raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes: for his device (i.e., the Sword of the Lord) is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple."
Deu_32:41 says, "If I whet my glittering sword (chereb), and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me."
BY THAT TIME, ALL THE SAINTS WILL BE IN HEAVEN, INCLUDING BOTH THE PHILADELPHIANS AT THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE AND THE LAODICEANS AT THE LAST-TRUMP RAPTURE
Psa 149:5-9 says, "Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; 7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD."
Isa_34:8 says, "For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
Jer 51:35-37 says, "The violence done to me and to my flesh be upon Babylon, shall the inhabitant of Zion say; and my blood upon the inhabitants of Chaldea, shall Jerusalem say. 36 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will plead thy cause, and take vengeance for thee; and I will dry up her sea (i.e., the Persian Gulf), and make her springs dry. 37 And Babylon shall become heaps, a dwellingplace for dragons, an astonishment, and an hissing, without an inhabitant."
2Th_1:8 says, "In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ".
To me, the "day of vengeance of our God" will be the day of the Last-Trump Rapture of I Cor 15:51-54, the day Jesus receives his millennial Kingdom, the great and terrible Day of the Lord, the day of the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Day of God's Wrath, the Feast of Trumpets, Tishri 1.
THE "ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD" IN ISA 61:2 WAS CAREFULLY PLANNED
The "acceptable" is from the Hebrew ratson, delightful, from ratsah, to be pleased with, specifically to satisfy a debt.
Jesus was born Monday, Tishri 1, 3757, Sept. 4, 5 BC, Julian Day 1,454,028.
The sign in Rev. 12:1 was in the sky when Jesus was born.
(http://www.fourmilab.ch/yoursky/). At YourSky, put in 4 BC instead of 5 BC, because astronomers add a zero year.
Jesus was 31 years old on Sun. Tishri 1, 3787, Sept. 21, 27 AD, Julian Day 1,465,367, in the Sabbatic Year when the Temple had been under construction 46 years. It was begun in the Julian 19/20 BC.
On the following Saturday (7th day of the week) Tishri (7th month) 7 (7th day of the month), 3787, Sept. 27, 27 AD, Julian Day 1,465,373, on the Sabbath before the Day of Atonement, Jesus announced the coming Jubilee Year that would start the following Nisan 1, 3788 (Mar. 17, 28 AD, Julian Day 1,465,545).
Deu 15:1,2 says, "At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. 2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release."
Luk 4:16-21 says, "And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord (i.e., to announce the coming Jubilee Year). 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."
Isa 61:1,2 says, "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim (i.e., announce) the acceptable (ratson, delightful, from ratsah, specifically to satisfy a debt, i.e., the Jubilee) year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn".
MAYBE THE FIRST-TRUMP RAPTURE WILL BE THIS YEAR
We are living in a Sabbatical Year, 5775. Just maybe this is also a year "to preach good tidings unto the meek...to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim (i.e., announce) the acceptable (ratson, delightful, from ratsah, specifically to satisfy a debt) year of the LORD".
Next Nisan 1, Sat. April 9, the anniversary of the Resurrection on April 9, 30 AD, could be the first day of the Jubilee Year. I wonder if it could be the day of the Second Advent. If so, two Raptures would take place between now and then.
Jer_12:12 seems like it could come true soon. It says, "The spoilers are come upon all high places through the wilderness: for the sword of the LORD (i.e., the ‘flaming sword which turned every way') shall devour from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land: no flesh shall have peace."
THE GARDEN OF EDEN WAS BY THE EUPHRATES, WHERE THE SIN OF MANKIND BEGAN
The four rivers of Eden are known today as Tigris, Euphrates, Wadi Rimah plus Wadi Batin (Pison), and Wadi Karun R. (Gihon). See map at: (http://www.ldolphin.org/eden/)
All four are found near the Persian Gulf that is to be dried up.
Of Babylon, near the Euphrates River, Jer 50:13-16 says, "Because of the wrath of the LORD it shall not be inhabited, but it shall be wholly desolate: every one that goeth by Babylon shall be astonished, and hiss at all her plagues. 14 Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the LORD. 15 Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her. 16 Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the sickle in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land."
Jer_51:6 says, "Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence."
Jer_51:56 says, "Because the spoiler is come upon her, even upon Babylon, and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken: for the LORD God of recompences shall surely requite (shalam, to reciprocate, recompense)."
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."
Jer_51:11 says, "his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple."
> > 169. The Elders are saved out of every kindred, tongue, people, and nation on Earth.
To me, the elders are the 12 patriarchs and the 12 apostles of Israel. In Num 10:4, they are called "the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel".
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 for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. 3 And when they shall blow with them (i.e., with 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., elders), which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee."
When the general assembly is called in heaven at the Last-Trump Rapture, the bride saints are already there, having been caught up in the First-Trump Rapture.
Heb 12:22-24 says, "But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant".
> > 170. In Ezekiel and Daniel we find similar descriptions of heaven as shown in the Revelation except for one thing. The Old Testament prophets did not see 24 Elders. Why?
They did, in Num 10:1-4.
> > 193. The Tribulation is called a Day of Wrath in the Bible -(Zephaniah 1:15), but the Bible also says "God has NOT appointed us (the Bride/Church) to wrath". -(1st Thessalonians 5:9).
> > 194. The Tribulation is called a Day of Wrath, but the Bible says Christ Jesus "has delivered us from the wrath to come" -(delivering the Bride/Church from the Tribulation period) -(1st Thessalonians 1:10).
> > 195. In Scripture, the "Seven year Tribulation" is called "The Day of the Lord", "That Day", "The Indignation", "The Days of Vengeance of Our God".
The Day of God's Wrath is the first day of Christ's millennial kingdom. It is also called the Day of the Lord.
Rev 6:15-17 says, "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?"
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_34:8 says, "For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
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."
Zep 1:14-18 says, "The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. 15 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, 16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. 17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. 18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land."
Mal_4:5 says, "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD".
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".
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."
Those things could not happen every day for seven years. The Day of the Lord is Jesus' Long Day, of which Joshua's Long Day is a type. The asteroid Wormwood will impact Earth and turn the Earth upside down.
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
