Isaiah 66:22 – For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain.

ISAIAH 66:1 – Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest?

The Lord addresses Israel, and pre-addresses his query by reminding Israel of the size of a building it would take to contain his person and kingdom. The point is that they cannot build such a building. But it is also a stark reminder God does not need a building in which to dwell. Where could you put such a building?
When Isaiah wrote this, Solomon’s temple was in full blossom in Jerusalem, so Israel had a beautiful temple for a place to worship. God reminds them in 66:1,2 that He is much greater than his temple, and that they are not worshipping the building, but the One whose Spirit indwells it.

ISAIAH 66:2 – For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

Matthew 5:3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Romans 2:28,29 – For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: [29] But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.
This is the type of man God has always sought to worship him in spirit and in truth.
There was only one man, absolutely perfect in having these characteristics from birth to death in sinless flesh, and that man was Jesus Christ, God himself in perfect flesh. He alone was qualified to present himself, his body and his blood, as the total one-time offering for the sins of all who would accept him as their offering.
Solomon’s temple, which “had been” built by human hands made by the hand of God, was indeed a thing of beauty, but its ordinances and sacrifices all pointed as figures, types, or symbols of an anointed man, whom God looked to as a man worthy of being indwelled by God in all his fullness, the God-man, Christ Jesus.

Luke 2:40 – And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

Luke 2:52 – And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

Philippians 2:5-12 – Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: [7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: [8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. [9] Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: [10] That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; [11] And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

II Corinthians 5:19 – To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

Colossians 2:9,10 – For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. [10] And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

Ephesians 2:22 – In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Israelis were placing their faith in the stone temple and animal sacrifices rather than the mercy and grace of God’s Spirit indwelling it, and not in his promised Seed of Genesis 3:15 who was some 700 years in the future when Isaiah wrote his Book.

ISAIAH 66:2,3 – For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. [3] He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

Psalm 51:15-17 – O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. [16] For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering [17] The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
The temple ordinances and sacrifices meant nothing, and were not accepted, unless they came from a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart.

Hebrews 10:4-13 – For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. [5] Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: [6] In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. [7] Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God. [8] Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; [9] Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. [10] By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Jesus spoke John 5:39-41 to those Jews who rejected him as the Messiah. (John 5:18)
John 5:39-41 – Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. [40] And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. [41] I receive not honour from men.
God’s own people rejected him in the days of the prophets who warned them of the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities that were coming on them for their evil conduct. God chose their delusions and brought their fears upon them as a consequence of their actions. Jesus, as the Prophet described by Moses, also told the generation of his day of the consequences of their actions in rejecting him.

ISAIAH 66:4 – I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

Matthew 23:27-39–Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. [28] Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. [29] Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, [30] And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. [31] Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. [32] Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. [33] Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? [34] Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: [35] That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. [36] Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. [37] O Jerusalem, Jerusalem thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! [38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.[39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Matthew 5:8 – Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Romans 2:29 – But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Part 1 was an exposition of Isaiah 66:1-4. It closed with the rejection of Jesus by his own people, which was also a rejection of the disciples for what they taught after his resurrection.

Matthew 23:37-39 – O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! [38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. [39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

The exposition continues in Isaiah 66:5 describing the return of Christ at the Second Advent with the penalty his people will suffer for the rejecting him as well as his brethren.
ISAIAH 66:5 – Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

Micah and Isaiah wrote in the same time period. Micah also indicated that Christ would temporarily give Israel up until she travailed through the tribulation period. At the end of her travail she would see her Messiah brought forth again at his Second Advent. His brethren of the church age would rejoice, but the descendants of those who rejected him would be ashamed of the actions of their forefathers, as well as their own.

Micah 5:3 – Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. (Review Archive Prophecy Update Number 64)

Micah 5:1 – Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us: they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek. (Review Archive Prophecy Update Number 62)

Micah 5:2 – But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. (Review Archive Prophecy Update Number 63)

ISAIAH 66:5 – Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

Luke 22:21-30 – But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. [22] And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed! [23] And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing. [24] And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest. [25] And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. [26] But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve. [27] For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth. [28] Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. [29] And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; [30] That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Revelation 1:5-7 – And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, [6] And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. [7] Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.

Revelation 20:2-6 – And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, [3] And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. [4] 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. [5] But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. [6] Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

**********************

The following information is very helpful towards understanding the Truthful aspects of the Great Tribulation Period. It covers the Trumpets and Vials of the Book of Revelation, etc. There may be some redundancy, as I’ve tried to put something together on a single page, but not to overload it.

The Sounding of the Trumpets – Are You Ready?

In I Corinthians 15:51-52, the Apostle Paul speaks a mystery: “at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed.”  For speculation, are there trumpets, which have already sounded before the last trump?

In I Thessalonians 4:16-18, the Apostle Paul writes, “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:  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.  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

In Revelation 8:1, seven Angels are given seven trumpets. Each trumpet announces the beginning of certain events which can be for a “worldwide” or “local” area. They can be for events on the surface of the earth, in the oceans, in the atmosphere or in the spiritual world.

Revelation 8:7 – 1st trumpet – volcanic activity begins on the earth destroying one third of the trees and all the green grass surrounding the volcano.

Revelation 8:8-9 – 2nd trumpet – volcanic activity begins in the oceans killing one third of sea life and producing worldwide tsunami waves, which destroy a third of the ships in port.

Revelation 8:10 -11- 3rd trumpet – a great comet strikes the earth, melts and is absorbed into the hydrological cycle, producing hydrocyanic acid, poisoning one third of the earth’s water supply, proceeded by a meteor storm as the comet begins its atmospheric entrance.

Revelation 8:12 – 4th trumpet – a dramatic increase in worldwide volcanic activity, creates a dust haze over a third of the earth.

Revelation 9:1-12 – 5th trumpet – a massive chain of worldwide volcanic eruptions and releasing of demonic beings from the earth’s interior, which torment lost humanity for five months.

Revelation 9:13-21 – 6th trumpet – release of four demonic kings, which lead approximately 200 million demons to kill a third of the human population with fire, smoke and an intense sulfurous suffocating odor.

Revelation 11:15-19 – 7th trumpet – announces the time of the judging of the dead and to give rewards to saved souls in the presence of Jesus Christ in the spiritual kingdom, understood as the Rapture and the occurrence of an earthquake and great volcanic hail upon the earth.

The Seven Trumpets of the Great Tribulation Period

After the first “great earthquake” occurs, there follows “seven trumpets” which are:

  1. Volcanic eruptions on the land surface, which destroy the trees and grass from the heat blast, lava flow and ash fall. The Saved, that is, the True Christian Believers are still on the earth during this event.
  2. Volcanic eruptions on the ocean floor, which poisons the water and produces tsunamis. The Saved, that is, the True Christian Believers are still on the earth during this event.
  3. A comet strikes the earth, melts and releases its’ poisonous gases into the hydrological cycle. It probably falls directly over Eurasia, which is 1/3 of the earth and where the most wicked population of the world exists. The Saved, that is, the True Christian Believers are still on the earth during this event.
  4. This is a dramatic increase of volcanic eruptions, producing towering ash clouds, surrounding one third of the earths’ surface. The Saved, that is, the True Christian Believers are still on the earth during this event.
  5. This is the release of demonic beings from the interior of the earth. They will torment lost humanity for the remaining five months or 150 days, to the very end of the Great Tribulation Period. This is the first “Woe” upon the earth. The Saved, that is, the True Christian Believers are still on the earth during this event.
  6. This is the release of four chief demonic beings which command 200 million demons to kill 1/3 of humanity with fire, smoke and brimstone, which are from volcanic eruptions and volcanic lava flows. This is the second “Woe” upon the earth. The Saved, that is, the True Christian Believers are still on the earth during this event.
  7. This is a massive increase of volcanic eruptions resulting in volcanic bombs being cast out upon the earth. The “great hail” is not hail stones from thunderstorms, but molten rock flying through the air from the towering volcanic eruptions. This “seventh trumpet” announces the Rapture; the Catching Out of what few “Saved”, a.k.a.: the True Christian Believers have survived thus far, through the previous 6 Trumpets. This is the third “Woe” upon the earth.

The Wrath of God

The Apostle John explains the wrath of God in a picture of catastrophic terror and horrors coming upon the earth because of the wickedness of humanity and in order to make necessary changes in the geological structure in the land of Israel.  This period of the wrath of God lasts only for about 45 days. These events occur after the Rapture of the Saved from the earth. They are a continuation and an increase of intensity of the seven trumpets which have just been completed.

The entire text is found in Revelation 16:1-21.

Revelation 16:2 – 1st plague – a shift in the magnetic field of the earth, from the earthquakes, leaving the earth temporarily without its protective shield, resulting in cosmic radiation mutilating the human flesh of those who worship the beast or antichrist.

Revelation 16:3 – 2nd plague – the heating of the oceans by undersea lava causing the reproduction of various dinoflagellates at a fantastic rate, producing oxidation and red tide.

Revelation 16:4-7 – 3rd plague – a poisoning of the earth’s freshwater supply by a comet’s release of methyl cyanide, hydrogen cyanide and a whole range of cyanogenic poisonous gases into the hydrological cycle.

Revelation 16:8-9 – 4th plague – destruction of the ozone layer by volcanic activity, allowing penetration of ultraviolet radiation causing a burning skin cancer.

Revelation 16:10-11 – 5th plague – a massive pyroclastic holocaust from volcanic lava upon wicked humanity.

Revelation 16:12-16 – 6th plague – the releasing of three evil spirits, causing people to worship the antichrist and to gather for the battle of Armageddon, including the diversion of the Euphrates River towards the Jordan River valley.

Revelation 16:17-21 – 7th plague – the greatest earthquake to ever have occurred since humanity has been on earth will take place in the Jordan river valley, causing the city of Jerusalem to split into three sections and producing a chain reaction of earthquakes, which will cause the cities of the nations of the world to fall into ruin, ending with catastrophic global volcanic activity, developing a single dust cloud encircling the entire planet earth.

Volcanic Hailstorm…  calaza    chalaza  khal’-ad-zah…  Hail:  chalaza khal’-ad-zah to lower (as into a void): to let down from a higher place to a lower; hail. [Greek: chalaza, hard lump, hailstone.]

Revelation 8:7:  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.

Revelation 11:19:  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 thundering’s, and an earthquake, and great hail.

Revelation 16:21:  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.

What is this “hail”?  It is mingled with a substance of a blood red color.  It was cast upon the earth.  It is associated with a third part of the trees being burned up. It is associated with all the green grass being burned up.  It is associated with lightning, a tone of thunder, an earthquake and is great. It fell out of heaven.  It had a tremendous effect upon humanity, because the plague was extremely great.

When the Great Tribulation Period begins, there will be absolutely no doubt as to what this “hail” really is. Just plain and simple: this “hail” will be molten rocks of volcanic “hailstones” that will cast out from the volcanic vents of the earth.

The majority of these events will be along the earths’ tectonic plate boundaries. This “hail” noticeably begins on the 1st trumpet; it intensifies with the sounding of the 7th trumpet and becomes “exceeding great” upon the pouring out of the 7th vial of the wrath of God.

September, 2020: If you are watching the news about the Middle East Arab nations currently trying to make Peace with Israel, which is a good thing; but as a few more make Peace with Israel, this is actually leading up to the time when the Islamic Antichrist will take action as Israel has a sense of a time of Peace and Safety, then this Islamic Antichrist will be working with terrorist groups in the Middle East with the Arab Countries, to collectively work towards an invasion of Israel.

When this invasion occurs, the Arabs will kill 2/3’s of the Jewish population in Israel according to Biblical Prophecy. A Great Earthquake will split the Mount of Olives and allow perhaps most of the Jews in Jerusalem to escape to the Negev Wilderness.

This Islamic Antichrist will conquer Jerusalem and the Land from Dan to Beersheba. He will then take control of Cairo, Egypt and establish his headquarters at Cairo for 3 1/2 years and create an Islamic Caliphate of ten Arab Nations. It will last for 3 1/2 years.

The Great Tribulation Period will begin at the start of the Great Earthquake and last for the duration of the 3 1/2 years. At the end of this time period, the Lord Jesus Christ will Return to defeat the Antichrist as he stands on the Temple Mount and declares himself to be God in flesh to the Islamic followers. This will end the 1,335 days of the Great Tribulation Period.

Christian Believers will still be on the earth during this 3 1/2 years of Tribulation and will caught out at the Rapture just before the last portion of the about 45 days of the Wrath of God, which will be the 7 Vials of the Book of Revelation.

In other words, as you see a few more Arab countries form some type of Peace Deal with Israel, then be on the watch for an invasion from Syria into Israel. This battle will last for about 75 days, then Jerusalem will be taken by the Arabs and the Land from Dan to Beersheba. A truce will be brokered with the Arabs and Israel after the battle for about 75 days. The Great Tribulation Period will continue with an increase number and degree of Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions and Tsunamis on a global scale.

It will finally end with the greatest Earthquake in human history in the Jordan River Valley of Israel, which will begin a surface motion that will cause all the cities of the world to fall into ruin. During this time, the Volcanic Eruptions would have developed a massive cloud of ash encircling the planet.

The final part of the Great Tribulation Period 3 1/2 years and mostly during the about last 45 days of the Wrath of God will be the Destruction of Rome, Italy and the Vatican City at the very end of this time period; perhaps just a few days before the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

There are two studies on my website that describe in detail about this event:

*****

Here is an excellent video about the volcanic complex near Rome, Italy. I believe this complex will become active toward the end of the Great Tribulation Period and completely destroy the City of Rome and the Vatican City.

01.  The Active Volcano in Italy; Colli Albani Apr 20, 2021

Here are some pages on my website that explains this future event:

01.  The Future Destruction of Rome, Italy and the Vatican City

02.  The Volcanic Burning of the Vatican City

The Volcanic Burning of the Vatican City

Revelation 18: [8] Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. [9] And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, [10] Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come. [15] The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, [17] For in one hour so great riches is come to naught. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, [18] And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! [19] And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour is she made desolate.

The Greek word definitions:

Revelation 18:8 utterly burned with fire – to burn up, blasted and consume by fire.

Revelation 18:9 & 19 the smoke of her burning – the burning by which metals are roasted and reduced; by a figure drawn from a refiners fire; calamities or trials that test the character.

Revelation 18:10 & 15 torment – to torture, a testing by the touchstone, which is a black siliceous stone used to test the purity of gold or silver by the color of the streak produced on it by rubbing it with either metal.

Revelation 18:17 & 19 come to naught & made desolate – to make desolate, lay waste, to ruin, bring to desolation, to despoil one, strip her of her treasures.

******

Revelation 11:18 – And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which DESTROY the earth.

The 7 Vials of the Wrath of God will be so great of a destruction, that the majority of humanity will be destroyed during this about a 45 day period, which will be the last portion of the 3 ½ years of the Great Tribulation Period, that perhaps only a few hundred million people will be allowed to enter into the Millennial Reign.

Greek word Number: 1311 diaphtheírō (from 1223 /diá, “thoroughly,” which intensifies 5351 /phtheírō, “defile, corrupt”) – properly, thoroughly corrupt, totally degenerate (disintegrate); waste away by the decaying influence of moral (spiritual) impurity; “utterly corrupt”; becoming thoroughly disabled (morally depraved), “all the way through” (“utterly decayed”).

Vine, Unger, White (NT, 130), “1311 (diaphtheírō) comes from dia, ‘through,’ ‘intensive,’ to corrupt utterly, through and through.” The noun form, 1312 (diaphthorá), likewise means “thorough decay.”

From diaballo and phtheiro; to rot thoroughly, i.e. (by implication) to ruin (passively, decay utterly, figuratively, pervert) — corrupt, destroy, perish. To change for the worse, to corrupt: minds, morals; τήν γῆν, i. e. the men that inhabit the earth, Revelation 11:18.

The purpose of the wrath of God will be to destroy those of humanity who have morally corrupted the earth. It is true, that all of humanity is corrupt to the core of their souls, but there are countless millions of people whose corruption has such an influence, that they are actually causing the billions of humanity to become even more morally corrupt by changing their minds for the worse, to the point of becoming thoroughly rotten!!!

(And should destroy them which destroy the earth.) The Greek word for the second English word “destroy” has to do with morality.

It can be translated as: and destroy and bring to ruin, causing them to perish, which destroy by morally corrupting the occupants of the earth and have caused them to become thoroughly rotten, by changing their minds and morals for the worse.
*****

The Lord Jesus Christ will return as the Parousia in bodily presence through this Volcanic Ash Cloud and begin His Millennial Reign. The Glory of the Brightness of His body will illuminate sufficiently to be refracted visibly surrounding the entire planet and every human will see Him upon His Return

The Great Tribulation Period will be composed of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Vials of the Book of Revelation. True Christian Believers will be on earth until the 7th Trumpet, in which case; whoever may survive the 1st thru 6th Trumpet, will be caught out on the 7th Trumpet. The Spiritually Lost human beings who survive the 7 Trumpets will have to endure the 7 Vials of the Wrath of God, which will last about 45 days. The majority of the population on earth will die during this Time Period, with perhaps only a few hundred million entering the Millennial Reign.

Antichrist Islamic Attack Events up to the Second Advent of Christ

Daniel’s 70 Weeks of Years Clock stopped with 1,335 days left to complete fulfillment. It will start to tick off some 1,335 days when Islam attacks Israel.  Some 75 days later a truce will be declared at Beersheba, and Israel will be left in a state of “Peace and safety” for 3+ years.  The truce will be broken when the Antichrist stands on the Temple Mount as the Antichrist claiming to be God and kills the two witnesses.  Some 3 and ½ Days later they will be caught up for all to see, and immediately thereafter, perhaps on the same day, all the saved, including the 144,000 sealed Jews, will be caught up on the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet. For the first time in history all the saved will be in heaven in glorified bodies to be judged for their apparel rewards, while the wrath of God is poured out on the earth in Seven Vials.

Some 45 days after Jerusalem falls, and the Israelis withdraw south to Negev’s Beersheba, the UN, US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, and China, broker a truce twixt Islam and Negev Israel.  This ‘hudna’ truce period of “Peace and safety” will last for 3+ years.   The Antichrist will then defeat the Egyptian Army and establish his Caliphate Capital at Cairo.  He will use the 3+ years to quickly build a gigantic Caliphate as many Islamic nations jump on his bandwagon.  It is likely to include the following nations with majority Muslim populations:  Iran, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and all the nations on its borders, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Taijhistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkistan, and Kirghizia.

Israel remains surrounded in the Negev on its three borders during its 3+ year truce period.  Antichrist will be an abnormally strong super intelligent individual, who is a satanically energized Islamic military leader, and God puts a fear of this man of sin in the hearts of leaders in his Caliphate to obey him.  Because of this, Antichrist will be able to bond together the 10 toes of Daniel 2 for some 1,335 days after his initial attack against Israel.  The 10 horns in Daniel 7:24 and Revelation 17:12 &17 are, of course, the same as the 10 toes in Daniel 2.  Jesus will destroy this beast and the kingdoms following him at His Armageddon Second Advent, when He comes as “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”

Antichrist will command and force all terrorist groups to stop all attacks inside borders of Negev Israel and to end all missile launches into the Negev, because he will need to gain international support as he organizes his control over his growing Caliphate, and also needs to lull Negev Israel and the West into the false sense of “Peace and safety” in I Thessalonians 5:3.  When the last trump sounds, which is the last trump in the series of seven, then the rapture occurs, after which the wrath of God is poured on the earth in seven vials.  Remembering chapter divisions in the KJV New Testament were artificially supplied by its translators, and that the context subject between chapters 4 and 5 does not change, please consider I Thessalonians 4:16 to 5:5.

The children of light will not know the exact day when Israel is pushed into the Negev, but they will have a general idea because they are not children of darkness.

While the 3 plus years of Israel in the Negev are occurring, those who continue to remain in darkness will still not believe, even as they see the events occurring, and will deny they mean anything, but many will come out of darkness when they see prophecies fulfilled, and will call upon the name of the Lord to save them in the tribulation period.

Israel will remain surrounded by Islam for some 1,260 days after the truce or hudna is declared – Near the end of this time, because the Antichrist has prohibited his forces from launching missiles into Israel as well as all internal Negev terrorist activity, the world and Israel will breathe a huge sigh of relief, and begin to believe “Peace and safety” has finally come to the Middle East.  But once this attitude reaches a big majority among both Jews and non-Islamists, sudden destruction will come on Israel.  This sets the stage for the 7th Trumpet to sound

Surrounded and trapped in the Negev, Israel “shall be given into his hand” like a man kept in a well by an enemy.  But Israel will be supplied with food, clothing, and logistic needs by friendly nations who drop these things down from above into the Negev well.  “They” in Revelation 12:6 refers to some friendly nations of the West who airlift supplies in to them.  The Russians did not shoot down the planes that airlifted supplies into our Berlin section after WW-2 because they did not want a WW-3.  The Islamic Antichrist will allow this future airlift to the Israel Negev for the same reason until the sounding of the Seventh Trumpet.

More than 45 days before the Second Advent Antichrist will return to Jerusalem from his Cairo Caliphate Capital.  He will kill the two witnesses some 45 days before the Second Advent, after they have testified to Israel in the Negev for 42 prophetic months (1,260 days).  At that time Antichrist declares himself to God while standing on the Temple Mount.  The Antichrist himself is the “abomination that maketh desolate.”  Three things happen immediately some 3 and ½ days after the 2 witnesses are killed, and they occur in rapid succession – the language makes it possible, even likely, they are on the same day, manner.

The 2 witnesses ascend up to heaven through the clouds.

A great earthquake occurs during the same hour in Jerusalem after they go up.

The 7th Trumpet (last trump) sounds – All the True Christian Believers on earth, including the 144,000 sealed Jews, are caught up, and the mystery of the Rapture will be finished.

AFTER THE 7TH TRUMPET SOUNDS ALL THE SAVED SOULS WILL APPEAR IN RESURRECTED GLORIFIED BODIES IN HEAVEN TO BE JUDGED FOR THEIR ETERNAL HEAVENLY GARMENTS AND CROWNS.

The 7 vials of God’s wrath will be poured out on an unbelieving earth for some 45 days between the 7th Trumpet Rapture and His Second Advent return, which will end the Tribulation Period at the final battle of Armageddon.

Christ returns at His Second Advent with the saved to end the 7 vials of wrath, deliver Israel by leading her out of the Negev to victory and promised occupation of a huge Land Grant he gave to Jacob (Israel) through Abraham and Isaac, and to destroy the Antichrist and False Prophet.

*****

P.S. The “abomination that maketh desolate” may not only be the bodily person of the Islamic Antichrist, but a statue of the individual of which will be constructed and placed on the Temple Mount.

To anyone viewing my websites: in no way, shape, form or fashion, do I think all of the material on my websites are the most correct interpretation of the events of Prophecy from the Holy Bible. I was taught by Pastor Tom McElmurry for some 41 years. I have listened to his Sermons many times and have read the studies on his website likewise, many times to try to understand the Trumpets and Vials of Revelation.

If I have mailed you any material, such as Books or simply a flyer, then my only purpose is to provide information that will be of help to you and eventually, even the people you influence, as to help you understand what is occurring, when these End Time events begin to unfold. If my mailing you something was unwelcomed, then forgive me, accept my apology and be at Peace.

I realize, perhaps most of you, as is generally the norm in our world, have very limited knowledge of the Great Tribulation Period teachings and to be honest, most people really do not care to know. As the majority of people are probably overwhelmed with life and that is all they want to be concerned with. Understandable!!!

At the current age of 62, having Pastored and Preached in Baptist Churches for some 35 years and having worked in the community of the world for some 44 years, I do realize the attitude of people toward Life!!! Most people spend their overwhelming thoughts about their Earth Life and nothing more. I truly Understand!!!

Nevertheless, when these events begin to occur, at least you might have some insight as to what is happening and this information will be helpful to you and to the people you have influence upon.

A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:30: And I will show a token, a sign and wonder in the visible arch of the sky where the clouds move and throughout all the earth, in the fields, in the country, in the wilderness and it will have the appearance of blood, along with a burning, hot flaming fire, with columns of cloudy dust, smoke and vapor.

A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:31: The brilliant sun, from the rising of the sun in the east to the sun rays in the arch ways of the sky, will be changed into darkness, as if it were night and the moon will take on the appearance of blood before the great and noble, fearful and terrible day in which Jehovah, the self-Existing One, the Eternal Lord shall come.

A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:19: And I will bring forth a rare event so extraordinary, it will inspire wonder, for it will be in the elevated area of the sky and a token of these events, will be throughout the entire regions under the surface of the soil, of all the land of the world, for it will be a visible wonder of flowing substance like blood, of flashes of lightening and fire, with a mist of smoke.

A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:20: The rising of the sun in the east and the rays of daily light will become as an outlining shadow and the bright shining moon, will appear to be a blood red color, before that mighty and visible day in which the One in supreme authority will come.

The Sign of The Second Coming of the Lord:  The following is an expanded translation, based upon all of the information from seventeen different translations, including the definitions of the Greek words and all related Scriptures, in regards to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ:

  1. What will be the sign and token to indicate and signify, when these predictions and events are about to take place, to be accomplished and fulfilled; regarding the coming and bodily presence of your return?
  2. And of the entire, full, completed and specific period of time, of the end of the age and of the end of the world?
  3. For the Gentle nations, the heathen and pagan people will rise up and move up against and among one another’s bordering nations and kingdom against kingdom, one place of reign touching another.
  4. There will be famines, a lack of food, causing destitution of people being without food.
  5. An outburst of diseases, plagues, pestilences and troubles.
  6. And great earth-shocks, earthquakes and a great shaking of the ground, causing it to tremble, shake sideways and back and forth, for the earth will be shaking in divers or different and various places, down through its’ distribution in many locations.
  7. And there will be great signs of terror and fearful sights from heaven.
  8. All these are the beginning, of the grief, the first of the troubles and sorrows, like the early pains and travail of childbirth.
  9. And there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood; 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. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And should destroy and bring to ruin them which morally corrupt the earth. And there were lightning and voices and thundering and an earthquake and great hail.
  10. Watch ye therefore and take heed to yourselves, for you do not know what hour your Lord will come. It may be during the evening or at midnight or in the early morning; What I say unto you I say to all, Watch. Therefore, be ye always ready and do not let your hearts be burdened and weighted down with a life filled with self-indulgence and pleasure, with a state of drunkenness and the cares and worries of life; in case the Lord comes and finds you sleeping, for in such an hour in which you are unaware and are not thinking, the Lord will come. For these things of life will be a snare and trap upon all who dwell upon the earth. Watch and pray that you may be accounted worthy to escape these things that will come to pass and to be allowed to stand before the Son of Man. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
  11. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: In an almost indivisible moment of time, at the instant of the jerking and twinkling of the eye, at the farthest, final, last, towards the latter end of the uttermost trumpet, for the trumpet will sound; To seize; to take for oneself, catch (away, up), pluck, pull, take (by force); take or grasp something {someone} abruptly or hastily with emphasis on the idea of suddenness or quickness; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: the dead will be waken and rise up to a state of undecaying immortality and we shall be changed and made different; 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.
  12. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
  13. Immediately after the pressure, affliction, anguish, burden, persecution, oppression, distress, tribulation and trouble of those days; as a sign, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light and the stars of heaven shall fall from the firmament of the sky; and upon the earth there will be distress of the nations, having a mental state of having no way out, as in bewilderment and confusion, because of the loud roaring of the sea and roaring waves; and the forces and powers that control heaven will be shaken, moved in disorder and will be disturbed.
  14. And there were noises/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. 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. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 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.
  15. And then shall they see the sign of the Son of Man coming in the clouds of the sky with power and great glory and all the tribes of the earth shall smite the breast and mourn.
  16. And shall he send forth his angels with a great sound of a trumpet and gather his elect from the uttermost end of the heavens.

Do not let it take you a life time to try and understand the following verses of Scripture. If someone is attempting to teach you the Word of God; correctly, then you should appreciate the opportunity given to you in your life!!!

Isaiah 52: [7] How Beautiful upon the Mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth Peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!

Nahum 1: [15] Behold upon the Mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth Peace!

Romans 10: [12] For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. [13] For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be Saved. [14] How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a Preacher? [15] And how shall they Preach, except they be sent? As it is written, How Beautiful are the feet of them that Preach the Gospel of Peace and bring glad tidings of good things!

Coronal Mass Ejections from the Sun. I believe eventually, these charged particles will hit the Earth in the Future; that will be so intense, they will penetrate through an opening in the Magnetic Shield, as it will be at a weaken state; then upon striking the Earth, will cause the three Earthquakes, with the 3rd being the Greatest Earthquake in Human History, as is mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

There are a few verses in the Book of Revelation that have the word: lightning in the text.

It is possible, this Cosmic Lightning could occur and cause Earthquakes, which in turn cause Volcanic Eruptions, which have Volcanic Lightning!!!

Here are the Verses in Revelation. It starts with the Seven Trumpets and Ends with the Seven Vials of the Wrath of God.

1. Revelation 8:5: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

2. Revelation 11:19: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

3. Revelation 16:18 & 21: 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. [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.

***

Here is a brief statement of what I a referring to, with regards to Cosmic Lightning:  “For an hour on March 13th, a big crack opened in Earth’s magnetic field – one of the biggest in years (For specialists: BsubZ less than -20 nT),” Dr. Tony Phillips of SpaceWeather.com noted.“Solar wind poured through the gap, adding its energy to that of the CME which struck earlier in the day. This increases the chances that high-latitude auroras may remain visible at least through the early hours of March 14th.” What Dr. Phillips described took place from 21:33 to 22:36 UTC.  From:   Watchers.News/2022/03/13/CME Hits Earth
