    The Great Day of the Lord is Near:

    Zephaniah 1:14-16 The great Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath is near1, very near and coming quickly. Listen for the sound of that Day!2 When it comes even the warriors will panic and be terrified.

    That Day will a day of great fury, a day of distress and torment, a day of destruction and devastation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick blackness, a day of the trumpet battle call against all the fortifications and upon all military strength.3

    Because the people have sinned against the Lord, He will bring a shocking disaster to all who live in the holy Land. Their blood will be poured out like dust and the entrails like dung. Their strength and riches will not save them on the Day of the Lord’s fiery wrath, the whole Land will be burnt and devastated. For He will make an end; a horrible end of all who live in the holy Land.4

    Isaiah 13:9-13 Here comes the Day of the Lords wrath! A day full of fury and the outpoured wrath of the Lord. The whole earth will be devastated and all the ungodly people will be destroyed. 5

    On that day, you will not have any light from the sun, the moon or the stars. The sky will roll up like a scroll, [Isaiah 34:4, Revelation 6:14] and the earth will be shaken from its place. 7

    The Lord will punish the world for its evil and the wicked peoples for their iniquity, He will end the arrogance of the proud and humble the pride of the leaders.
    On that Day, humans will become scarce, they will be as rare as fine gold; after the Lord’s Day of His blazing anger.8

    Isaiah 24:1-13 Be warned, the Lord is about to strip the earth, ruin and devastate it. All the earths inhabitants, without exception, will be severely affected.9

    For the Lord has spoked this Word: The whole world is defiled by its peoples, they have changed the Laws, ignored the Statutes and broken the Everlasting Covenant. Therefore; My curse will consume the earth and its inhabitants will suffer punishment. They will be burned up and very few will be left10. There will no longer be the sounds of revelry and partying, the sounds of music and songs will cease.

    The cities and towns will be in chaos11, every house locked and the people gone. They will be deserted, with all the roads and bridges destroyed. It will be like that throughout the world, in all the nations, just like an olive tree: beaten and stripped after the harvest.


    Isaiah 24:14-16 & 23 The Lord’s people lift their voices, they shout for joy, all His faithful righteous people in the West, in the East and in the islands of the sea; all giving honour to the God of Israel.
    From the ends of the earth, we hear them singing: Glory to God, our Saviour and our Redeemer!12
    Ref: REB, CJB, NIV, KJV. Some verses condensed.


    1/ The great and terrible Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath will be a massive explosion of the suns surface. Isaiah 30:26 and other prophesies can only be literally fulfilled by a Coronal Mass Ejection, a known natural occurrence, but never before of the magnitude described. Joel 2:2b

    As the enemies of Israel prepare their weapon to attack, the Lord will instigate His punishment. Psalms 11:4-6, Psalms 7:12-15, Romans 1:18

    Only now is the world in a similar state as it was in Noah’s time. 2 Peter 3:6-7

    The Lord will bring out of His storehouse, Deuteronomy 32:34-43, the fire, earthquakes, storms and tsunamis, to destroy those attackers and to clear and cleanse the entire Middle East region. Psalms 83, Ezekiel 30:1-5, Jeremiah 12:14

    2/The great sound will be heard all around the world. Jeremiah 25:30-31, Isaiah 29:6

    3/ Military powers of all kinds will be destroyed; all nuclear weapons neutralized. Jeremiah 49:35 & 50:22-27, Micah 5:10-11, Isaiah 32:14, Hosea 8:14

    4/ All of the holy Land, from the Nile to the Euphrates will be devastated and depopulated. Isaiah 6:11-12, Jeremiah 10:18 & 4:26, Ezekiel 21:1-7, Hosea 4:3

    5/ The whole world will be severely affected. 2 Peter 3:7, Nahum 1:5, Malachi 4:1-3, Isaiah 66:15-17, Revelation 6:12-17

    6/ There will be no natural light, because of the cloud of the suns ejected material. Isaiah 47:3, Amos 5:20, Joel 2:22, Jeremiah 4:23

    7/ The earth will be pushed along its orbital track and the year will again be 360 days. Haggai 2:21-22, Joel 2:10, Psalms 18:7 and the time periods of Revelation.

    8/ Millions will die around the world, but especially in the Middle East, where this strike will hit at mid-day. Zephaniah 2:4, Jeremiah 9:21-22, Revelation 14:17-20

    9/ Everybody alive then, will experience this dramatic event. It will come upon all and will test the worth of each person. 1 Corinthians 3:13-15, 1 Peter 4:12, Rev 3:19

    10/ Many will die from this strike and from later problems. But millions will survive too, they just need to keep under cover for 36 hours. Nahum 1:7, Psalms 60:4-5

    11/ After this disaster, which will destroy all our modern infrastructure, the survivor’s will divide the world into 10 regions, each led by a President, in a One World Government federation. Daniel 11:21-24, Revelation 17-12

    12/ A new nation will arise in all of the holy Land, consisting of only those people faithful to God; all born again Christian people, from every race, nation and language. Isaiah 62:1-5, John sees them there in Revelation 7:9-14.

    Zechariah 8:4-8 The Lord says: I am about to rescue My people [now every faithful Christian] and bring them to live in the holy Land. Once again old people will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, watching the children at play. Even if this seems impossible for those alive at that time; will it be impossible for Me?

    Revelation 7:9-14 I saw a vast multitude of people from every race, nation and language.....they shouted: Victory to our God and to the Lamb, our Redeemer and King. [Note in 2 Thessalonians 1:10, that Jesus is revealed to His people soon after His Day of wrath.]

    The 2000 year Church age is nearly over and the end times prophesies will commence with the 'foot slip' of the enemies of the Lord. 'Foot slip'- make a mistake and fall to disaster. That mistake will be their start of an attack onto Israel.

    Deuteronomy 32:34-35 & 43 I have sealed up in My storehouses, punishments against My enemies, till the Day of vengeance and wrath, at the moment their foot slips. For the Day of their downfall is near, their doom is fast approaching. The Lord will punish those who hate Him and cleanse His peoples Land.

    Isaiah 2:21 On that Day, the Lord will arise and strike the world with terror.

    Isaiah 13:1-8 My troops, eager for victory, with the weapons of the Lord’s wrath.

    Jeremiah 4:20 Crash follow crash, for the whole land goes down in ruin. Suddenly my tents are thrown down, my coverings in an instant.

    Isaiah 66:6 The noise and distress that you hear, is the Lord dealing retribution to His foes.

    Psalms 110:1-6 In glorious majesty He judges the nations, shattering heads throughout the wide earth.


    Judgement of fire A coronal mass ejection from the sun will strike the earth: Isaiah 30:26a

    Malachi 4:1 The Day comes, burning like a furnace, all arrogant evildoers will be as stubble, they will be destroyed in a fiery blaze.

    Isaiah 29:5-6 Suddenly, in an instant, punishment will come, storms, earthquakes and a flame of devouring fire.

    Isaiah 66:16 The Lord will judge with fire and sword, many will be slain by Him.

    Ezekiel 21:28 A sword of slaughter will flash like lightening.

    Isaiah 10:17-19 Sudden destruction. As sudden as someone falling in a fit.

    Psalm 21:8-9 Your hand will reach all Your enemies, all who hate You. In Your anger, You will engulf them as in a fiery furnace and fire will consume them.

    Ezekiel 20:47-48 Say to the Land: I am about to kindle a fire in you, it will consume all flammable material, its fiery flame cannot be put out and everyone will be scorched by it.

    Destroyed at the moment of attack:
    Amos 5:9 He makes destruction flash forth against the mighty.

    Psalm 140:9 When those who beset me raise their heads, may their conspiracies engulf them.

    Habakkuk 3:14 You pierce their leaders with Your arrows, they are swept away by a whirlwind as they open their jaws to secretly devour their victims.

    Psalms 37:12-15 The wicked have drawn their swords and strung their bows, to slaughter the righteous. Their weapons will cut their own hearts and their bows will be shattered.

    Psalms 7:12-16 The enemy prepares to attack, he has conceived mischief and given birth to lies. He has dug a deep pit, but he himself will fall into it.

    Psalms 9:15-17 The wicked are trapped in their own devices. The wicked depart to Sheol, all the nations who are heedless of the Lord. Ref: REB. Verses abridged

    The scenario:
    Nuclear tipped missiles are prepared for launching. At the moment the firing button is pressed, a massive CME strikes the area. The highly charged particles of superheated hydrogen will cause the bombs and the missiles to explode on the ground.

    But He doesn't! Plenty happens and is yet to happen before that glorious Day.

    Is it right to just ignore over a quarter of our Bible that is prophecy?
    Did God give all that information to His prophets and ensure that it was kept for us today, for no reason? No; we should not be in the dark about God's plans for our future. 1 Thess 5:4

    It is plain for all to see, that God will intervene to correct His Creation again, We are, once again; as in the days of Noah and God reset that civilization by drowning all except 8 people. This time it will be by fire, we are plainly told about it and what we should do to be physically and spiritually prepared for it.

    I was brought up with reports of 'it coming', or 'it's happening.... soon' There would be a report of archery equipmenmt being sold to Russia and that would be taken up as a sign of preparations for gog and magog to invade Israel.

    We get equal hysteria over blood red moons today.

    The point you and everyone else totally misses is that Jesus's second coming will be 'unexpected' we will not know when it will happen.

    Yes we need to be expectant, obessed no.

    Yes, that is a problem with warning people about the forthcoming end time events. The 'cry wolf' syndrome has made many turn right away from Bible prophesy.
    Regarding 'unexpected'; the actual Return of Jesus will not be unknown by Christians, as 1260 days before that glorious event, the Anti-Christ leader of the One World Govt, will sit in the new Temple and declare himself to be god. What will be sudden and shocking is the next prophesied event; the Sixth Seal worldwide disaster. This is what I warn about, as the plain convergence of signs and the obvious closeness of God needing to take action to correct our civilization now, shows.

    I actually see your attitude of; don't worry, just try to be ready and don't even bother trying to understand what the Prophetic Word says, as another sign of the closeness of it all happening soon.

    Carefully read my articles here and I have plenty more free at: logostelos.info
    We should, as Bible believing Christians; not be in the dark about God's plans for our future.

    The thing is, we all know what God expects of us. It is to live for him.

    That includes being expectant of his return, but if we are indifferent about expecting an iminenim return, what is the primary importance for God.
    That there are believers or that they are having heartattacks anticipating his coming.

    They must be people who simply haven't read the prophesies properly.
    When it is understood what the Lord actually does plan for His righteous people's future, then you should be as I am; in great anticipation of amazing things.
    His Blessings to us; every faithful Christian, living in all of the holy Land, in peace and prosperity.

    THAT is what the prophets tell us will happen, any other end time scenario is false teaching. Ezekiel 34:11-16, Isaiah 35:1-10, Romans 9:24-26, Revelation 7:9-14

    The Lord's Supper reminds us of His coming, 1 Corinthians 11.26.

    All the faithful, born again Christians from every tribe, race, nation and language, will gather and settle in all of the holy Land. Isaiah 66:18b-21, Ezekiel 34:11-16, Romans 9:24-26 The rest of the world's people, survivors of this prophesied disaster, will form a One World Govt.
    We will be the people that God always wanted there, but has never yet had. His witnesses, Isaiah 43:10, John 15:27 and His Light to the nations. Isaiah 49:8, Matthew 5:14-16
    THAT is our destiny and our great privilege. Psalms 37:29

    Well there is My solutions.
    When Christian organisation start emailing etc to get believers to move to Israel, that is when I need to start thinking that there is a possibility of Jesus returning in my life time.

    Get real just how many Christians will Israel permit to move in?
    There are 60 million people in the UK if 1% are Christians that's 600,000 moving to Israel and a great many more from the USA.

    The Prophetic Word plainly says that all the holy Land will be cleared and cleansed in the next event; the Lord's Day of wrath against the nations. Only a remnant of the Jews will survive. Isaiah 29:1-4, Romans 9:27
    Then the entire holy Land, from the Nile to the Euphrates, will then become as a garden land and all the Lord's faithful Christian people will live in it. Isaiah 35:1-10, Ezekiel 34:11-16, Romans 9:24-26

    Your choice is to read what the Bible actually says will happen, or discard the whole lot, because to pick and choose what to believe; such as Salvation thru Jesus, but to reject the rest of the Bible, is sheer hypocrisy.

    I know the idea of going to live in the holy Land, is new to you, its something that is never taught, but it is there and is what will happen. We Christians are the Lord's chosen people, John 15:14-16, 1 Peter 2:9-10 and we are the ones, Jews and Gentiles, who will be the people God always wanted in His Land and has never yet had. Jeremiah 50:4-5

    As is to stress that ones interpretation is the only correct understanding.

    Who's interpreting?
    I quote what the Prophetic Word says. Why must you question that?

    This is a discussion Forum. Implying that a posting member wrongly interprets Bible prophecy, without any kind of proper rebuttal, is not acceptable.

    Blow the Trumpet! Joel 2:1-2 Yom Teruah, the Day of Trumpets.

    Hosea 5:8-15 Blow the trumpet in the Holy Land! Raise the battle cry over the Land. Benjamin will lead the way. [Benjamin, now part of the House of Judah]

    On the Day of Reckoning and punishment Ephraim will be laid waste, this is the certain doom the Lord has decreed for all of Israel’s tribes. Judah’s rabbis are like those who move boundary stones, therefore He will pour out His wrath upon them like a flood. Jeremiah 8:8, 1 Tim. 1:7

    Ephraim is an oppressor trampling on justice, obstinately pursuing what is worthless. So the Lord will be as a festering boil to Ephraim and like rot to the people of Judah. When Ephraim realized his sickness and Judah found his sores, they turned for help to earthly powers, but they had no cure for them. Jer. 13:25

    The Lord will be like a lion against Ephraim and as a fierce lion to Judah, He will maul His prey and go, Jer. 4:7-9 leaving them with no hope of rescue. He will return to His dwelling place until they admit their guilt and in remorse they seek their God. In their misery and pain, they will acknowledge their offences and pray for the Lord to heal them. Isaiah 57:15-19, Psalm 41, Jer. 33:6-8, Hosea 14


    This is the amazing story of what will happen very soon. How the Lord will instigate His Day of Reckoning and punishment, His terrible judgement of fire that will virtually wipe out the Middle East and affect all the world. We read the prophesies such as Psalm 83, how on that Day, He will destroy His enemies, but this passage in Hosea tells us that His people, will also face judgement. Their lands will be ‘laid waste,’ but in Jeremiah 30:7 How awful is that Day, when has been the like? A time of anguish for Jacob, [now the Western nations] yet he will come through it safely. Zechariah 9:14-17

    The Lord ‘will maul His prey and go back to His dwelling place’, this is undeniable proof that this terrible Day of wrath: the Sixth Seal, is separate from and years before the glorious Return.

    Jeremiah 50:3-5 A great horde [a fiery mass] will fall upon the Middle East, [Joel 2:1-11, Ezekiel 30:1-5] making all the holy Land a desolate waste, with no one living there; man and beast will all be gone. In those days and at that time, the people of Israel, [the ten Northern tribes] and the people of Judah, [the Jews] will come together and with remorse and tears go in search of the Lord their God. They will seek the way to the holy Land, looking toward Jerusalem and saying: Come, let us join ourselves to the Lord in an everlasting Covenant that will never be forgotten Hebrews 8:8-13, Jeremiah 31:8-9, Deut. 4:27-31, Ezekiel 37:1-28

    Jeremiah 51:50 You who escape the terrible Day of the Lord’s wrath; Go do not linger. Remember the Lord from afar and let Jerusalem come into your minds.

    Isaiah 12:1-6 On that Day, you will say: Praise God, my Deliverer… Let this be known in all the world – the Holy One of Israel has Redeemed His people and will be among them. Isaiah 24:23, 2 Thess. 1:10 Ref: REB, NIV, KJV. Paraphrased

    The Shekinah glory of God will return to the new Temple, in the same manner as in Solomon’s Temple. Ezekiel 43:4 But when the Anti-Christ conquers Beulah and places his image in the Temple, the Lord will depart along with His holy ones, Daniel 11:32, Rev. 12:14, for the 1260 day period of the great Tribulation. They will live in a place far out of reach of the ‘serpent’ until the Return of Jesus for His Millennial reign. Matthew 24:30-31
