Water World

Water World

The water of noah's flood didn't just dissappear - see link.  It's not the agent of the end times, that is fire, but it may be the looming fate of earthly babylon's infrastructure, it's deep water ports and coastal cities, before fire consumes the earthly trading megacomplex, mystery, babylon the great.

Deep Freeze

The title, "Deep Freeze", contains great truths about our present earth's living conditions.

We don't know much about the weather conditions before the flood but I think they were probably quite different to out present climate. People certainly lived a lot longer but that may be due to the Lord allowing that before He shortened man's days.

In time past, the Lord's first advent, He stilled the raging waters with a word. There is a lot of weather in the bible!

We are now approaching the end of this age. Wars and rumours of wars (the cold war), yes, we have had that. Matthew 24:-
    6, And ye will be about to hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things it is necessary for them to arise, but the end is not yet.
    7, For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in different places.
    8, All these are a beginning of birth- pangs.
Luke, in chapter 21, describes this slightly differently:-
    9, But when ye shall hear of wars and unrest, be not scared: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not immediately."
    10, Then said He unto them, "Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
    11, And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences [dearths and deaths]; and things that fill with fear and great signs shall there be from heaven. 
By looking closely at both passages, we can see that we are in that time when the next major international dust up, "nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom", is about to unfold.

The birth pangs will start then. The next conflagration of nations signals the beginning of the end times. This is what is REALLY going on on earth today.

My guess is that soon the "babylon" mentioned by the prophet Isaiah (not mystery babylon, that is something else though closely connected), that system of international trade that relies upon deep water ports and coastal cities, will be engulfed by the rising seas. There is a lot of talk about the arctic melting but consider, if the east antarctic ice sheet melts, sea levels will rise by 50 metres!!! These frozen ice/land masses have been there since the days of the Flood of Noah. As the end of the age approaches, these guardian ice sheets, that have controlled the weather systems of this good earth since Noah's Flood, are going to wreak havoc on the systems of men.

Luke only has the sea roaring

Luk 21:25  "And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves,
Luk 21:26  people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Why is it that only Luke mentions this marine aspect of the birth pangs?

The answer is sublime. Luke's temple discourse has the gentiles as it's target audience, that is all the peoples around the world.
Matthew and Mark's Olivet discourse accounts, a private one with just the disciples, have those living in Jerusalem at the time of the birth pangs as their target audience. As such, they are protected from the worst of the ravages of the marine disturbance by the Mediterranean sea.

If one is disposed to question this, consider:- The other three evangelists are all Jewish, Matthew, Mark and John. These three were directly appointed by the Lord in His earthly ministry. Only Luke "comes in from the cold" of the gentiles.

Luke is the faithful companion of Paul, the apostle to the gentiles.

Clouds of heaven

Gas cloud in the heavens

Job 22:12  "Is not God high in the heavens? See the highest stars, how lofty they are!
Job 22:13  But you say, 'What does God know? Can he judge through the deep darkness?
Job 22:14  Thick clouds veil him, so that he does not see, and he walks on the vault of heaven.'

Dan_7:13  "I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him.
Mat_24:30  Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat_26:64  Jesus said to him, "You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven."
Mar_14:62  And Jesus said, "I am, and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven."

Space roar


Space roar

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

As the article shows (see Space roar), it is the roar of radio waves that were found. Sound waves are not going to travel through space ( which is largely a vacuum, no air out there except on planets, obviously). It is therefore a very interesting topic to contemplate how the roar can be heard as mentioned by Peter the apostle, above.

Which means he may have been talking about what is recorded in the Revelation:-


Rev 6:12  When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood,
Rev 6:13  and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale.
Rev 6:14  The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
Rev 6:15  Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains,
Rev 6:16  calling to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb,
Rev 6:17  for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?


This is starting to make a lot of sense as Peter also says "and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved" in addition to the heavens passing away. We will not hear the "heavenly bodies" being burned up and dissolved but we will hear when the sky is rolled up as sound travels in the atmosphere.

Peter also says:-
"and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed."
Revelation says:-
Rev 6:15  Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains,
Rev 6:16  calling to the mountains and rocks, "Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb,
Rev 6:17  for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?"

..............................

The "roar" in the article makes one wonder. The current growing worsening condition of the seas indicates we maybe entering a new phase or, at least, experiencing some early indicators of such a phase coming. If that is the case, when such phase arrives, information shall start appearing in the heavens, some of which shall be in the form of  radio waves and light, travelling at the speed of light, and revealing a decaying universe. Which also raises the question, does everything travel within the confines of the speed of light out there in deep space. Quantum physics suggests we don't really understand particle theory as much as today's scientific illuminati would pretend to (entangled particles, for example). My point being that I don't think the universe has been decaying for millions of years and we are just about, perhaps, to start seeing it. I have long thought that light travels at a certain speed only within the confines of our safe haven in the universe, which is likely to be the centre of the universe ( centre of the universe ).
(See CBR asymmetry for direction in space -  Job 26:7  "He stretches out the north over the void and hangs the earth on nothing". Space is not uniform, the view north is not so filled with stars, etc, like the rest).

Bear this in mind:-

Luk 21:10  Then he said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
Luk 21:11  There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

When the final phase arrives, all that is contained in the above 2 verses shall happen together, in concert. So, we are not there...yet.

Then

Mat 25:1  "Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.

I'm guessing most readers will know this parable.
I'm guessing most readers kind of nod assent to it but haven't really thought about it too much.

In fact, this is one of the most important statements concerning our walk in the time to come.
Firstly, it applies to that time when the Lord comes back - that is the 'then' time.
Secondly, it tells us something very important - we need to keep spiritually awake. When the Lord returns, the earth will be in a state of deep spiritual darkness. It's midnight.
Thirdly, we need light to go out to meet the Lord, the bridegroom. Things are changing very fast now, lawlessness is rampant and soon there will be outright rebellion against the Light of the gospel of Christ. Many people around you are in fact the walking dead but they are increasingly energised by the spirit that is at work in those who disobey the gospel.

We need to be able to wake up at the correct time, to see the day coming, it will not overtake us by surprise if we remain vigilant now.

When that time comes, it won't be church programs that will save you, it will be that you are walking in the Light, your own personal, true gospel light that you have acquired. You can't afford to share that with others, you will only have enough light, at that time, for yourself only (and perhaps your children if you have them - they are sanctified by your faith).

The great danger facing believers today - I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing


Rev 3:14  "And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: 'The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God's creation.
Rev 3:15  "'I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot!
Rev 3:16  So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
Rev 3:17  For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.
Rev 3:18  I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.
Rev 3:19  Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.
Rev 3:20  Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Rev 3:21  The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.
Rev 3:22  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'"



God bless
