PROPHECY  of  HOSEA

 

With remarkable similarity to  Amos 2 v4-5 , the prophet  Hosea  details the identical events that will befall God’s people and also decries Israel’s spiritual failures , aptly describing  1. its ' unfaithfulness '   2. its ' idolatry '  and  3. its ' misplaced trust ' ( in walls and fences ) before passing the same sentence  I will send  A FIRE . . . upon the nation , with its cities and palaces being consumed.  So again repeated in yet another prophecy , is the clear indication that Israel will face judgment and divine wrath  , but through God’s use of war and conflict from other hostile nations. 

 

HOSEA 8 

v14  -  For  Israel  hath . . .  1.  forgotten  his Maker   and   2.  buildeth temples 

            and  Judah  hath . . .  3.  multiplied ‘ fenced ’ cities : 

            but  I WILL  send a  ' A FIRE '  upon his cities

            and  ' IT '  shall  devour  the palaces thereof

 

How can we be sure  this  “ FIRE ”  ( ‘ sent ’ by God )  is not the result of the  ‘ forces of nature ’  or  ‘ from the heavens ’  but rather is delivered by hostile foreign powers ?  Once again , context is critical.  Throughout the earlier verses in Hosea 8 we find constant and repeated references indisputably identifying Russia as the head of these rampaging anti-semite nations. In the opening verse we see the blowing of the  trumpet ”  signalling the outbreak of war  ‘ between armies ’ ,  before :

 

       Verse 1  -  it is declared the attacker comes as . . .  “ AN  EAGLE    ( cp.  Deut 28v49  /  Jer 48v4049v22  /   Hab 1v8  Lam 4v19  )  

       Verse 3  -  describes Israel being pursued by . . . THE  ENEMY    ( cp.  Isa 59v9   /   Jer 6v22-25   /   Lam 1v9 , 4v12  ) 

       Verse 7  -  describes  Israel  ‘ reaping ’   . . .   THE  WHIRLWIND    ( cp.  Dan 11v40  /  Jer 4v13   /   Isa 5v26-28  )

 

All three  of these ‘ metaphoric allusions ’ listed are well-known and established ‘ symbols  ’ used throughout God’s Word  for the latter-day nation of ‘ RUSSIA ‘.  Currently the possessor of the world’s largest arsenal of nuclear weapons , is there anyone who does NOT believe Russia’s iron-fisted autocrat ( Vladimir Putin ) in his quest for global domination , is fully prepared to unleash these deadly ‘ doomsday ’ weapons to achieve his aims ??   

 

 

PROPHECY  of  ZECHARIAH

 

Another instance of the  THE FIRE  being used is in  Zechariah 13  wherein God speaking of  ' end-time ' events in  Israel ,  in  Verse 9  says that after ‘ two-thirds ’ of the Jews will perish in the land , He will also preserve the other  ‘ one-third ’  of His people  and bring them through THE FIRE.   While chapter 13 is devoid of any clue to what constitutes this THE FIRE ,  the chapter is  ‘ straddled between ’  two adjoining chapters that speak ‘ extensively ’ on the ‘ Day of the Lord ’  and the battle for Jerusalem.  As if to emphasise  the apocalyptic nature of this event ,  chapter 12 repeats the phrase in that day6 times ’  while in  chapter 14  the same phrase is repeated no less than ‘ 8 times ’ . . .  yet interestingly ,  never once  in  chapter 13  wherein this  all-consuming  THE FIRE  is mentioned.  Given that this  THE FIRE  referred to by Zechariah  is deeply embedded in the middle of these two parallel narratives it is therefore abundantly clear this ‘ FIRE ’ which kills two-thirds of the people  ( and then , that God brings the other one-third through )  is in fact  ‘ THE FIRE  of  WAR ’  between the armies ‘ of  man ’ battling for Jerusalem.  Once more we see the ‘ judgments of God ’ ( here brought upon His people )  being in the form of ‘ man-made ’ destruction , through either ‘ conventional ’ or ‘ nuclear ’ war.  There is simply no evidence that the  THE FIRE  of  Zechariah chapter 13 comes from ‘ any ’ other source ( ie. heaven  or  volcanoes etc. )  other than  man.

 

ZECHARIAH  13

 

         v8  -    And it shall come to pass ,  that in  IN ALL THE LAND  of  Israel  ) ,  saith the LORD

                    ‘ two parts ’  therein shall be  '  cut off  '  and die

                    but  ‘ the third ’  shall be  left  therein.

         v9  -   And I will bring  ‘ the third part ’  through  ‘ THE FIRE ’

                   and will refine them as silver is refined ,  and will try them as gold is tried

                   they  ( Jews )  shall call on my name ,  and I will hear them :  I will say ,  It is my people

​​​​

​LAMENTATIONS  (  of  JEREMIAH  )

 

Even Lamentations provide more compelling evidence declaring that , not only is the source of Israel’s  ‘ judgment of FIRE ’  undeniably from God  ( who hath kindled A FIRE in Zion )  but the same verse states it is the accomplishment of HIS fury  and the pouring out of  “ HIS fierce anger ” against them.

 

LAMENTATIONS 4 

v11  -  The LORD hath  accomplished his fury ;  he hath poured out his fierce anger 

           and  hath kindled   ' A FIRE ’   in  Zion   ( Jerusalem )  

           and  it hath devoured the foundations thereof.

 

v12  -  The kings of  ‘ the earth ’  and  all the inhabitants ‘ of the world ’

           would  NOT  have believed  that  THE ADVERSARY  and  THE ENEMY

           should have  entered into the gates of Jerusalem.

 

More specifically Lamentations also makes clear His people’s punishment is directly at the hands of two foreign powers  THE ADVERSARY and THE ENEMY (  Iran + Russia  ) who invade Israel and the Holy City, Jerusalem.  Interestingly, this bible passage also emphatically conveys the ‘ world-wide ’ shock and disbelief that these two powers should suddenly invade and ‘ lay siege ’ to the Holy City.  So once again , the Book of Lamentations  confirms the execution of God’s will and the pouring out of  ‘ His judgment ’  upon Israel is  ( . . . in yet another instance ) actually achieved  ' wholly  and  exclusively ’  through the ‘ hand of man ’ . . .  via conflict and war. 

​​​

“ PILLARS  of  SMOKE ” 

 

As we return to the striking ‘ symbolism ’ broadly used to describe the terrifying ‘ reality ’ of this coming ‘ nuclear war ’ and the worldwide havoc that will follow , another revealing biblical reference is the pillars of smoke as found in  Joel Ch. 2  and its parallel  New Testament citing in Acts Ch. 2

 

     JOEL 2 v 30    -   And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth,

                                 BLOOD  and  ‘ FIRE ’  and  ‘ PILLARS OF SMOKE ’

 

     ACTS 2 v 19   -   And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath;

                                 BLOOD  and  ‘ FIRE ’  and  ‘  VAPOUR OF SMOKE ’ 

 

These passages are routinely ( and almost exclusively ) linked to the ‘ natural ’ phenomena of  ‘ erupting volcanoes ’  in the last days.  Both verses are often quoted from our lecture platforms as legitimate and verifiable evidence that points to the outworking of divine judgment in the end-times wherein the natural earth is convulsing to the maladies brought on by mankind.  Yet , could we be un-aware of  ( or perhaps even dismissing )  their ‘ primary ’ intended meaning ??   So , is it mere co-incidence that these pillars of smoke are the  ‘ universal signature ’ accompanying every single nuclear detonation ?

 

Almost like an apocalyptic headstone , these swiftly deploying ’ clouds that tower over the freshly scorched earth are a testament to the colossal destruction and misery unleashed beneath them by man.  Can we ignore this vivid imagery Yahweh has deliberately left on record for our learning ??  Do we believe that it is simply  ‘ erupting volcanoes ’  that will span the vast expanse of the globe  - or -  is this nuclear war scenario a far more plausible and accurate explanation when we read these words ??  More importantly , are we as ‘ faithful watchmen ’ sounding a dire warning  ( both to those , within the household of God and those yet in darkness ‘ in the world ’ )  of these terrifying things coming on the earth ??

 

In  Joel Ch.2  the language is highly specific , with the word for  PILLARS   being rendered by Strong’s Concordance  as :

 

  H8490        תּימרה   tı̂ymârâh   tee-maw-raw'    From the same as  H8558 ;   ‘ a column ’ ,  that is ,  cloud : -  pillar.

 

This Hebrew word and this analogy toa column comes from an unused root  meaning to ‘ be erect ’ ; ( ie.  as a palm tree ).  While the citation of  Joel 2  found later in  Acts 2 v 19  does seem to lose ‘ the pillar ’ in favour of  a VAPOUR of smoke  as a result of the New Testament translation from the Greek   -  nevertheless  -   if we also look to a ‘ previously examined ’ passage in  Isaiah 9 v18  we actually discover the ' EXACT SAME ' translation ( quite literally ‘ hidden ’ in the text ) of yet another stunning passage about these monumental plumes of smoke.   

​​​​

​ISA 9 v 18   -   For  ' wickedness '  burneth as  ‘ THE FIRE ’

                         ‘ IT ’  shall devour the briers and thorns

                         and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest

                         and they shall mount up like the  ‘ LIFTING UP OF SMOKE ’ 

 

Fittingly , and in the familiar context of  burning wickedness  and  devouring fire  that

consumes the  ‘ briers , thorns and forests ’,  the prophet  Isaiah  in the  King James Version 

wrote : 

“  they shall  ' mount '  up  . . .  like  the  LIFTING UP  OF  SMOKE  ”

Yet  ' almost every '  other alternate ( and reliable ) translation renders this phrase : 

“  they  ‘ ROLL ’  upward  . . .  in a  COLUMN  OF  SMOKE ” 

 

​​

Anyone who has compared the formation of volcano plumes to nuclear blast clouds will be aware that ‘ the latter ’ conform far more  closely with ‘ columns ’ . . . ‘ rolling upward ’.   Nuclear blasts typically have a well-defined ‘ column ’ or cloud stem that  ‘ envelopes itself ’  as it shoots skyward , rolling into a gigantic bulbous cloud at the top , whereas volcano clouds are generally more non-descript , lacking a distinctive form or consistency of shape until the smoke ascends into the heavens in the loose form of a column.  We would again suggest the ‘ precise language ’ used prophetically in scripture is certainly  NOT  by chance ,  but points unquestionably and unmistakably to the horrific spectre of nuclear war in the last days.

 

Finally , like so many other ‘ allegorical ’ references in scripture , we know these powerful images and allusions actually foreshadow even greater events to come  -  that being the manifestation of ‘ divine power ’  -  through the Lord Jesus Christ , who will ultimately use the  ‘ forces of nature ’  to forever obliterate the evil deeds and corruption of man and impose His Father’s righteous and sovereign will upon the kingdoms of men.   Even in the  pillars of smoke  referred to in  Song of Solomon  we are given  a vision of the Lord’s long awaited advent as he emerges from the wilderness , His power and presence likened to the colossal nature and grandeur of the  pillars of smoke ”  previously considered.

SONG OF SOLOMON  3  

v 6  -  WHO ’  is  this  that cometh out of the wilderness  like  ‘ PILLARS OF SMOKE ’

          ‘ perfumed ’  with myrrh and frankincense , with all powders of the merchant ?

​​

ISAIAH  19   -   PROPHECY  of  EGYPT

 

All these bible occurrences of  ' symbolism ' , ' metaphors '  and  ' illustrative word-pictures '  help to crystallise our understanding of events to come.  But perhaps no where else in God’s Word is this illustrated more graphically than  Isaiah 19.   In this prophecy about  Egypt  we have a ‘ scintillating array ’ of metaphorical allusions that once again seem to ‘ speak irrefutably ’ to the certainty of nuclear conflict , this time affecting Egypt.

 

ISAIAH 19  

 

 

v1 -   Behold ,  the LORD  rideth  UPON  A  ‘ SWIFT CLOUD ’  and shall come into Egypt

         and  the  IDOLS  of  Egypt  shall be  ‘ MOVED ’  at  his presence

         and  the  HEART  of  Egypt  shall  ' MELT '  in the midst of it       

 

v4 -   And  the Egyptians  will I  give over into the hand of a  cruel lord :

         and  ' a fierce kingshall rule over them ,  saith the Lord ,  the LORD of hosts

 

v16 -  In that day  shall  Egypt  be like unto women :  and it shall be afraid and fear

          because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts ,  which he shaketh over it

 

v17 -  And ' the land of Judah ' shall be ' a terror ' unto  Egypt

          every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself

  

v20 -  And it shall be for  ' A SIGN '  and for  ' A WITNESS '  unto the LORD  of hosts  in the land of Egypt

          for  they  shall cry unto the LORD because of  ‘ the oppressors ’

          and  he shall send them ‘ a saviour ’

          and ' a great one ' ,  and ' he ' shall deliver them 

 

If we  ‘ carefully and critically consider ’  these verses in their overall context ,  the true meaning becomes very apparent :  

 

Verse 1  Is the ' centre-piece ' of this stunning prophecy providing the THREE major allusions  ( misunderstood by many )  that are allegorical language actually describing the reality of nuclear war.  As we've previously established , before Jesus’ appearance on the Mount of Olives ,  all of God’s judgments on the nations will be executed through ‘ man-made means( ie. war )  even though these events are actually ‘ sent by Him

 

Quite clearly ,  there is no need that  ' the LORD ' actually  “ RIDES UPON  a swift cloud  as if  upon a magic carpet.  It is not a literal statement ,  it is a  ‘ figurative ’  illustration  that signals that  ‘ THE LORD’s  will ’  is being brought upon/to Egypt. 

 

Secondly , this precise depiction of a  SWIFT cloud  could only refer to either  whirlwind/storms clouds  - or -  alternatively the explosive mushroom cloud from a nuclear blast.  With the presence of ‘ intense heat ’ mentioned later in  Verse 1, this eliminates the notion of whirlwind/storms and exponentially strengthens the nuclear detonation probability.  Furthermore , this ‘ nuclear explosion ’ scenario is absolutely consistent with the words that follow , as  the IDOLS of EGYPT ( ie Pyramids , Sphinxes etc. ) . . . shall be ‘ MOVED ’  indicating these monumental structures are ‘ moved - or - shaken ’ by these blasts.  What else could this statement be referring to ??  And outside of divine power , what else would possess the enormous capability to move these structures ? 

It is also quite plausible the third and final allusion  the HEART of Egypt shall ' MELT ' in the midst of it  could well be a ' figurative '  statement ( concerning ‘ the spirit ’ or ‘ resolve ’ of the Egyptians )  however , it does seem far more logical  ( given all the accompanying evidence )  that this is in fact aliteralevent , describing the capital city  ( or ‘ heart ‘ )  of Egypt  ‘ melting ’  as it is engulfed by this man-made ‘ nuclear ’ firestorm.

 

While the LORD is  NOT  literally and visibly present in Egypt ,  the following verses further remind the reader ( Verse 16 ) that this  shaking of the hand of the LORD . . . which he shaketh over it figuratively show these events indisputably represent the outworking of the LORD’s will.  (  Notice ‘ repetition ’ is used here to reinforce the importance of this point  )  

 

‘ IF ’  the LORD were actually ‘ present ’ here in Egypt ( in a protective sense ) then  Verse 17  the land of Judah  ( ie, God’s own people , Israel ) shall be  A TERROR  unto Egypt ”  would make  ' no sense '  at all.    However , we do know  (  for a certainty  )  from many other bible references ( Jer 46v19,20,24  /  Ezek 30v3-4  /  Ezek 32v2-16  /  Dan 11v40-42 ) that Egypt will be among the first nations to fall to the invading Russian confederacy and be in captivity.  If  ‘ hostile ’  Russian forces  are in possession of Egypt  ( v20 -  “ the oppressors )  and threaten the Holy Land , we can readily appreciate why a ‘ nuclear-armed ’ Israel may well be  A TERROR  to the captive Egyptians.    This fits in  exactly  with the full narrative earlier in  Isaiah 19  :

 

ISAIAH 19

v2  -  And  I will  set  the Egyptians  against  the Egyptians   (  2011 Egyptian Revolution  )

         and they shall fight every one against his brother

         and every one against his neighbour ;  city against city  ,  kingdom against kingdom.

 

v3   -  And the  ' spirit '  of Egypt  shall  ' fail '  in the midst thereof;

          and  I will  destroy the counsel thereof :  and they shall seek to the idols,

          and to the charmers , and to them that have familiar spirits , and to the wizards

v4  -   And  the Egyptians  will I  give over into the hand of a  ' CRUEL LORD '  ( Muhammad Morsi  2012-13 )

          and  a  FIERCE  KING   (  cp. Daniel 8 v 23  /  Deut. 28 v 50   -  Russian ‘ GOG ‘  )   shall  RULE  over them

 

 

 

Finally ,  in  Verse 20  we are then told that Yahweh will then respond to the desperate cries of the Egyptians sending them A SAVIOUR  /  A GREAT ONE  ( Jesus Christ )  to deliver them from their brutal Russian overlords “ the oppressors ”   

 

          v20  -   And it shall be for  ' A SIGN '  and for  ' A WITNESS '  unto the LORD  of hosts  in the land of  Egypt

                      for they shall cry unto the LORD  because of  ‘ the oppressors ’

and  he  shall send them  ' A SAVIOUR '   and  '  A GREAT ONE ' and  ' HE '  shall deliver them 

We see throughout this prophecy in  Isaiah 19  ‘ God’s judgments ’ upon Egypt are innately connected to the hostile nations surrounding them ( ie. Russia , Israel , etc.)  and how all the illustrative language and evidence suggests  ( quite conclusively )  the curse of  ‘ nuclear warfare ’  will be central to these catastrophic events that will  ' befall Egypt '  before the Lord’s return.   

CLOUDS  /  DARKNESS  /  GLOOMINESS  /  NOISE   ”

 

Beyond the use of The Curse  /  The Pestilence  /  The Plague and The Fire  /  The Flame  /  Pillars of Smoke all of which link these apocalyptic prophecies together , these same passages also contain other  ‘ visual language ’  that vividly describe the ‘ actual effects ’ of military  conflict , and of nuclear war.  Across several of these bible accounts that foretell of the  ‘ Day of the LORD  /  Time of Trouble  /  Great Tribulation ’  we also see  “ Clouds / Darkness / Gloominess / Noise ”  as a repeated feature that not only describes the aftermath of nuclear war, but also provides important contextual verification.

 

In  Joel 2  these ‘ visual ‘ descriptions are coupled with strong allusions to  1.  the end-times Russian confederacy  ( as it is about to descend upon and attack God’s people , Israel )  and   . . .  2.  to  “ THE FIRE ”  and THE FLAME   that  scorch the earth  both before and after them.  We  ask  once again , what else could such devastating imagery refer to ?  

 

JOEL  2  

v2-3  -   A day of  DARKNESS  and of  GLOOMINESS ,

             a day of  CLOUDS  and of  THICK DARKNESS  . . . 

             a ‘ great people ’  and  ‘ a strong ’  ( Russian Confederacy )  there hath not been ever the like,

             neither shall be any more after it ,  even to the years of many generations.

             A  ‘ FIRE ’  devoureth  before them ;                   ( H784     “ Fire ”  )

             And  behind them  a  ‘ FLAME ’  burneth           ( H3852    “ Flame (-ming),  Head  of a  SPEAR ” )

  v5  -   Like  ' THE NOISE '  of chariots  on the tops of mountains shall they leap,

            like  ' THE NOISE '  of a  FLAME OF FIRE  that devoureth the stubble,     ( H3851   /    H784  )  

            ‘ as ’  a strong people  set in battle array

 

While the record in  Joel Ch.2  identifies ' the aggressors '  ( " a great people and a strong " )  alluding to the invading Russian confederacy , the dramatic parallel account in  Zephaniah 1  provide an identical description of the ‘ visual elements ’ of this event  ( confirming it is ‘ the same ’ occurrence ).  Nevertheless  Zephaniah provides an entirely different perspective clearly identifying  those ‘ assailed upon ’ ( ‘ the fenced cities ’ )  during this same onslaught , those being Israel.  So between  Joel  and  Zephaniah  we are given ‘ both opposing perspectives ’ around a common ‘ identical description ’ of this event  but the underlying point is the form of judgment in  “ THE FIRE ”  and  THE FLAME   is entirely of man’s doing.

 

ZEPHANIAH  1 

 

v15  -  That day  is a ' day of wrath '

           A  day  of  trouble and distress

           A  day  of  wasteness and desolation

           A  day  of  DARKNESS  and of  GLOOMINESS

           A  day  of  CLOUDS  and of  THICK DARKNESS

v16  -  A ' day  of  the trumpet ' and alarm  AGAINST  ‘ the fenced cities ’  ( ie. Israel )                    

           and against the high towers.

 

Yet, in this the end-time battle for Jerusalem  -  if we consider a third account of this event  -  when ‘ truly divine power ’ is brought upon the Russian-led ‘ multitude of nations ’ who have overwhelmed and now possess the Holy Land , we see the composition of elements has changed to a more complete profile of the ‘ forces of nature ’.  In this instance , not only do the elements synonymous with ‘ nuclear war ’ remain present ( ie. FIRE , FLAME ,  GREAT NOISE ) but ' new ' components of nature are introduced ( EARTHQUAKE , TEMPEST , STORM , THUNDER ).   This being the full unsheathing of God’s fury upon the nations ,  these devastating forces are both  unprecedented  in their form ,  and  colossal  in their magnitude and ferocity.

 

So great , so powerful and so destructive are these natural elements ,  all the mighty ‘ nuclear-armed ‘ nations are crushed , and  -  as the prophet says  -  reduced to nothing more than the lingering memory  of a night vision  as if , they had only ever been ‘ a dream ’.

 

ISAIAH  29

v6-7  -  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

            And the  ‘ multitude of all the nations ’  that  FIGHT AGAINST ARIEL  (  Jerusalem  )

            and that distress her  . . .  shall be  ' as a dream '  of a night vision.

 

UNLIKE  all the previous examples we have studied in this article , in this instance we know for  ‘ a certainty ’  these are  NOTmetaphorical ’ or  ‘ figurative ’  allusions to the nations and/or peoples.   How do we know ?   One clear proof of this is that as metaphors  THE STORM   and  THE TEMPEST throughout scripture has been consistently used as representative symbols  for ‘ RUSSIA ’,  but in this final battle for Jerusalem we see these literalforces of nature  ( in ‘ the storm ’ and ‘ the tempest ’ )  actually being employed at the command of the Lord Jesus Christ , to finally destroy  RUSSIA , and the multitude of nations with it.

​​

In conclusion , in this paper we have considered a vast array of  ‘ symbolic passages of prophecy ’.  All of these , after being studied are found to be thoroughly ‘ supported and verified ’  by context ,  by cross-references  and  by empirical evidence.  There simply remains  no doubt  these passages speak to the certainty of a ‘ man-made ’ NUCLEAR WAR  coming very soon.  This is not to say ‘ every ’ theatre of battle in this impending global war will necessarily be ‘ nuclear ’, however when both the ‘ technical specificity ’  and the ‘ incalculable scale ’ of prophecies such as  Zechariah 5 , Psalm 91 and Isaiah 24  are fully understood and weighed , we can be absolutely certain the totality of these events ( as faithfully and accurately depicted in God’s Word over 2,000 years ago )  will surely come to pass.   

 

As we approach the very last days of the ‘ kingdoms of men ’ it does seem astounding that so much information on this apocalyptic topic has been concealed within God’s Word.  From the times of the ancient prophets , ‘ whole chapters ’ and expansive ‘ metaphoric themes ’ dedicated to the explanation and understanding of these ‘ catastrophic end-times events ’ have been quite literally ‘ hidden in plain sight ’.  Yet according to the LORD’s wisdom and mercy , these secrets are being revealed at the appointed time , for the benefit of those who are watching and waiting for the Lord’s return ,  and for also ‘ the saving ’ of those who are yet in darkness and perhaps searching for answers.

 

Therefore ,  now with a deeper appreciation of God’s underlying purpose in these  symbols , metaphors and  analogies , we can see their ‘ LITERAL ’ fulfilment is just around the corner.   Furthermore we can also find a more complete understanding of  ‘ other ’ similar end-time prophecies in both the old and new testaments  ( many of which , have not even been touched upon in this article ).   Consider for example the description of  ‘ the Day of the Lord ’  in the Apostle Peter’s words  :  

 

2 PETER 3  

v10 -  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 '

 

v12 -  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of  the DAY OF GOD

          wherein the  ( ‘ political ’ )  heavens  being  ‘ ON FIRE ’  shall be  DISSOLVED

          and  ' the elements '  shall ' MELT '  with  fervent heat  ?

 

 

Likewise , the Old Testament prophet Malachi ( with near identical language ) also provides the same ‘ apocalyptic insight ’ into the coming events soon to befall mankind.  Are both their visions and their ‘ choice of words ’ merely co-incidental ??  Do we not recognise and accept this symbolic language laid out in God’s Word as both ‘ accurate and descriptive ’ of the exact events  soon to take place ?  More urgently, are we  alerting others  to the profound dangers soon to sweep the earth ?

 

MALACHI 4

v1  -  For, behold , ‘ the DAY cometh ’  that shall  ‘ BURN as an OVEN ’

         and  all the proud , yea , and all that do wickedly , shall be stubble

         and  ' THE DAY '  that cometh  shall  ‘ BURN THEM UP ’,  saith the LORD of hosts,

         that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.

 

 

Finally , through an  ‘ exhaustive ’  examination of  metaphors  and  figurative allusions  found in these end-times prophecies , we discovered that many are either  ‘ identical ’  or   ‘ highly similar ’ ( synonyms ) :  

 

  • “  The Curse   /   The Pestilence   /   The Plague  ”                                                                                  

 

  • “  The Fire   /   The Flame   /   Pillars of Smoke  ”                                                                                    

 

  • “  Clouds   /   Darkness   /   Gloominess   /   Noise  ”                                                                              

 

Not only do they frequently speak to the ' EXACT SAME ' prophetic event , but they also provide such overwhelming accuracy and detail that all the aggregated evidence points to the absolute certainty that GLOBAL NUCLEAR WARis near.  The common and repeated occurrences of these ‘ metaphors ’ and ‘ figurative allusions ’ in prophecy  -  together with other illustrative language ( ie. ‘ On Fire ’ ... ‘ Melt ’ ... ‘  Burned up ’ ... ‘ Burn as an Oven ’ ) help portray with unwavering clarity , a grim and dire vision of the  ‘ Day of the LORD  /  Time of Trouble  /  Great Tribulationand God’s final outpouring of judgment upon mankind ,  particularly those judgments that are by the ‘ foolishness of man’s own hand ’ and that will shortly be fulfilled  in a  very  ‘ REAL ‘  and  ‘ LITERAL ‘ manner . 

 

As we now ' await the time ' for this  “ CURSE  to break forth across the whole earth , it serves us well to return to one of our first bible verses to recall the full horrific import of these approaching events and to be reminded of the grave responsibility we all have to sound an alarm to those around us ,  of the perils that lay ahead.

 

 

ISAIAH Ch. 24 

 

v6 -  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 

 

 

A  FINAL  THOUGHT

 

As watchmen , who now stand on the ‘ thresh-hold ’ of cataclysmic global events , the likes of which ‘ the world ‘  has  NEVER  before seen ,  we have both an individual and a collective responsibility to ‘ those within the household of God ’ and a responsibility to  ‘ those without ’ ( who are yet in darkness )  to let them know  ‘ exactly  WHAT  is  coming ’ !!!   If we do this , it may be they will avail themselves of the opportunity to find ‘ sanctuary ’ both for themselves and their families ( through the hope that is offered ‘ in Christ ’ )  and through His grace escape from the ‘ NUCLEAR catastrophe ’ that will soon engulf the entire planet.

                                                                                                  -    THE FIRE   /    THE FLAME    /    PILLARS OF SMOKE

                                                                                                

  • All of which link these  ' apocalyptic prophecies '  together  -   ‘  Time of Trouble  /  Great Tribulation  /  Day of the LORD  ’

  • It is God Himself who ‘ ’ these ( man-made ) ‘ judgments ’ “  I WILL bring  IT  forth  . . .  saith the LORD 

    (  Man’s own evil deeds are the  ’ just and righteous ’  means God uses to recompense the disobedience and godlessness of mankind  )

Almost  ' EVERY ASPECT ' of this  ‘ Coming Nuclear War . . .  is comprehensively and graphically detailed in God's Word , the Bible  :

 

  • Description of  ‘ nuclear ’  missiles and warheads  -  “  A  FLYING  ROLL ”  [  A  " ROLL " . .  NOT  a  scroll  ► ie. " missile " ]

 

    TRANSLATIONAL ERROR   (  CORRECTION  # 1 )  :   “ Scroll ”    —>   “ ROLL ”   

 

  • Other bible symbols / metaphors for ‘ MISSILES ’ " THE ARROW  . . .  that flieth by day     /    TERROR BY NIGHT "

 

 

Design and technical configurations  :

 

  • Exact dimensions     -    "  the length is twenty cubits ,  the breadth  ( ie.  circumference )  ten cubits "  

 

                                                   [ apx.  34 feet LONG   X   6 feet DIAMETER    /    10.4 metres  X  1.6 metres  ]  

  

  • Payload   -   " ephah "  ( or basket  -   apx. 40 litres )

  • Uniformity ( worldwide )  -  This is  THEIR RESEMBLANCE  through all the earth    

 

  • Core fissile materials / elements   -   “  a talent of  LEAD   ( ie. Uranium-235 )

 

  • The  ‘ Operational Trigger '   -  “  he cast  ' IT '  ( ie.  talent of LEAD )  into the midst of the ephah( ‘ basket ’ )

                                                         -  “  he cast the  weight of LEAD  ( ie. uranium )  upon the mouth thereof  "

 

    TRANSLATIONAL ERROR   (  CORRECTION  #  2 )  :   “ Woman ”    —>   “ FIRE ”   .

 

  • the  ‘ Nuclear Warhead ’ this is ' A  FIRE '  ( ie,  FIRE / BURNT  offering )  that sitteth in the midst of the ephah

 

  • Multiple Independent Warheads ( MIRV’s ) " there came out  TWO ' FIRES '  ( ie,  FIRE / BURNT offerings )  the wind was ' in their wings ' ” 

  • The  ‘ Flight ’   -   the wind was  in their wings  . . .  For they had  ‘ wings ’  like the wings of a stork 

  • The  ‘ Flight Path / Trajectory ’  -  “ they lifted up  ‘ the ephah ’  BETWEEN  the earth  and  the heaven  ( ie. ‘ stratosphere ’ )

  • The  ‘ effect ’  of these nuclear detonations   -   Their  flesh  shall  consume away  while they stand upon their feet

                                                                                            Their  tongue  shall  consume away 

                                                                                            Their  eyes  shall  consume away  in their holes

 

                                                                                      -   The inhabitants  of the earth  are burned  and  few  men left  ”

 

 

  • The extraordinary meaning behind  ‘ THE FIRE ’  and  ‘ THE FLAME ’  ( of nuclear war )    

 

“ FIRE ”     -     H784     אשׁ      meaning :-   fire  ( literally or figuratively ) : - burning ,  fiery ,  fire ,  flaming ,  hot

“ FLAME ” -   H3852     להבה  meaning :-  flame (-ming), head [ of a spear ]

                  -   H3851    להב     meaning :-  ‘ to gleam , a flash ’ ; figuratively sharply polished blade  or  point of a weapon

 

 

Aftermath of nuclear warfare ,  that is  ‘ radiation ’  or  ‘ radioactive fall-out

 

  • The description of  ‘ nuclear radiation ’   -  “  ' IT '  shall enter  into the house  ”

                                                                              -  “  ' IT '  shall remain in the midst  of his house  ”

                                                                              -  “  and  shall  consume it  with the timber thereof  &  the stones thereof  ”

 

  • The  ‘ mortal ’  effects of nuclear radiation   -    “  the ‘ PESTILENCE ’  that walks  in darkness    ( mass killer )  

  

  • The  ‘ destructive ’  effects of nuclear radiation   -   the DESTRUCTION ’  that wasteth  at noonday   ( mass destruction )

  

  • The scale and death toll   -   “  A THOUSAND  shall ' fall ' at thy side  . . .  and  TEN THOUSAND  at thy right hand 

The Bible  also  states   -  the effects of this  global nuclear war ,  will  NOT  be  ' arbitrary  or  chance ' ,  but will involve :

 

  • The  DISCRIMINATORY  SELECTION ’  of those in society who commit these two evils  ( 1. Immorality  2. False worship )

  • The execution of these events are a ‘ moral judgment ’   -   “  for every one that  ‘ stealeth ’  shall be  cut off  ”  

                                                                                                           -  “  . . . every one that  ‘ sweareth ’  shall be  cut off  ”

                                                                                                           -  “  all  the proud , and all that  do wickedly ,  shall be stubble

                                                                                                           -  “  the  ' destruction '  of  the transgressors  and of  the sinners  shall be together

                                                                                                           -  “  they shall both  ‘ BURN TOGETHER ’  and none shall quench them

                                                                                                           -  “  they that  ‘ forsake ’  the LORD shall be consumed

 

  • The  destruction of  ‘ mainstream ’  religions  (  & their followers  )   -  “  him that  ‘ sweareth falsely ’ ... BY MY NAME

  • Vast majority of the (ungodly) inhabitants of the world will perish  -  the INHABITANTS of the earth  ARE BURNED .... and  ‘ FEW ’ MEN LEFT "

                                                                                                                                                                    

                         

                                         

God’s unbreakable promises  . . .

  • Absolute promise  of  SELECTIVE ' PROTECTION  of  believers ... amid a ' full-scale ' nuclear war ( both  WHY  and  HOW  this will be achieved )

       

        WHY   . . .             " Because  thou  hast made the LORD  . . .  THY HABITATION "

        HOW  . . .       v1 -  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High

                                          shall  ABIDE UNDER  the shadow of  THE ALMIGHTY.

v2  - I will say of the LORD,  HE IS MY REFUGE  and  MY FORTRESS :

        my God ;  in him will I trust.

 

v3 -  Surely  HE SHALL DELIVER THEE  from the snare of the fowler,

        and  FROM THE  NOISOME ‘ PESTILENCE ’

 

v4 -  HE SHALL COVER THEE  with his feathers 

         and  UNDER HIS WINGS  shalt thou trust

         ‘ his truth ’  shall be  THY SHIELD  and buckler.

 

v5 -   Thou shalt  not  be afraid  . . .

         For  the  ' TERROR BY NIGHT '

         Nor  for  ' THE ARROW '  that  flieth  by day

 

v6 -   Nor  for  ' THE PESTILENCE '  that  walketh  in darkness    ( ie. ' nuclear  radiation ' )

         Nor  for  ' THE DESTRUCTION '  that  ' wasteth '  at noonday    ( ie. ' nuclear  radiation ' )

 

v7 -  ' A THOUSAND '  shall fall at thy side , and  ' TEN THOUSAND '  at thy right hand

         but  ' IT '  shall  NOT  COME NIGH THEE

 

v10 - There shall  NO EVIL  befall thee   . . . .

 

  • The  ‘ faithful ’  will be protected  . . .  in  their  houses   -  neither  shall any  ' PLAGUE '  come nigh  THY DWELLING

  • The  ‘ faithful ’  will actually ‘ witness ’  the final judgments  -  Only WITH THINE EYES  shalt thou BEHOLD and SEE the reward of the wicked

 

                                                 

 

Finally ,  the Bible declares

 

  • The  ‘ destination ’  of these highly destructive projectiles   - goeth forth  over the face of  THE WHOLE EARTH

                                                                                                                -  in the land of  Shinar  ”   ( ie.  ‘ the world ’ )

 

  • The  ‘ overall purpose ’  of this apocalyptic nuclear war    -  To build it  AN HOUSE  ( ie.  ‘ the house of the LORD ’ )

                                                                                                            it shall be established  and  set there upon her own base

 

  • The  ‘ final outcome ’  beyond this coming global crisis  -  A world ‘ cleansed ’ of man’s evils and ungodliness and ‘ prepared ’ for the 1,000 year

                                                                                                            reign of the Lord Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Father’s Kingdom on Earth
