(Jeremiah 30:3)(Joel 3:1) the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah
(Jeremiah 18:17) I will show them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.

(Revelation 8:8-9) 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.
(Revelation 8:10-11) And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; {11} And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
(Revelation 8:12-13) And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. {13} And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
(Revelation 9:1-2) And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. {2} And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

7) NONE SHALL PASS---SMOKE FOREVER
(Isaiah 34:10) from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
(Jeremiah 9:12) because they are burned up, so that none can pass through--the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through?
(Jeremiah 18:16-17) To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished.

(Jeremiah 50:40) As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah--neither shall any son of man dwell therein.

8) THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN
(Matthew 24:29-30) 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.

9) MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB
(Joel 2:16) Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

(Jeremiah 50:25) The LORD hath opened his armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of his indignation
(Jeremiah 51:11) for his device is against Babylon, to destroy it; because it is the vengeance of the LORD, the vengeance of his temple. (Jeremiah 51:20-23) Thou art my battle ax and weapons of war: for with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms--with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider--I break in pieces man and woman--I break in pieces captains and rulers.
(Jeremiah 51:25-26) Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain--which destroyest all the earth--I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain

KEY WORDS
her images are broken in pieces--it shall not be inhabited-- it shall be wholly desolate-- As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah --At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth is moved--the land shall tremble--The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof.--he spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith the LORD--Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.
(Jeremiah 50:1-3, 13, 40, 46; 51.29, 42, 48) (Isaiah 13:19-22; 21.9)
