There are many doctrines and beliefs concerning
this topic. It has fascinated people all over the world to discuss the
end of the world. And in these last days, many people are
experiencing a feeling of DOOM. Even though this topic is not a
Salvation issue ( that is to say, what you believe concerning this
topic, should not cause or prevent one from being Saved ), but that I
fail not to reveal what the Spirit of Truth has revealed to me, is why
I include it here.
So then whether you believe it or not, is entirely up to you. Pray about it if in doubt. Most everything in this chapter will have Scriptures quoted to back up what is being said. Let us begin.
The very first question, are we going to have a New Heaven and a New Earth? Saint Peter says:
Isaiah, a major prophet of the Old Testament teaching about the future said:
Isaiah continues to tell us what the Lord says in:
Saint John in the Revelations, concerning what is to happen in the future says:
And Jesus Christ Himself talked about Heaven and Earth passing away in:
So we see clearly that Scriptures speak of a New Heaven and a New Earth. So what Heaven is going to pass away and become New? Is it the Heaven where God the Father dwells or is some other Heaven being discussed here? Well we get a little insight what the Apostle Paul says to the Corinthians, consider:
So by this Scripture, if there is a 3rd Heaven, then there is a first Heaven. And verse 4 says the third Heaven is Paradise. Scriptures teach us that the 3rd Heaven is Paradise; does Scriptures teach us about a Heaven that is not Paradise? It does, consider these verses:
Where does rain come from? Where do birds fly? The answer is: Our atmosphere. So the Word of God calls our atmosphere – Heaven. For it says the windows of Heaven were opened and it rained, and that birds fly in the Heaven. Many other verses refer to our atmosphere as a Heaven, which I will not list them all here; I think the verses above are enough.
So if our atmosphere is the first Heaven and Paradise is the third Heaven, I think it would be safe to assume that our solar system, galaxy, and universe is the 2nd Heaven, how is it, there will be some who will disagree even with that in this generation.
If Scriptures teach we will have a New Heaven and a New earth, that means a New Atmosphere and New Earth. So then the atmosphere we have now and the Earth as we know it now, both must pass away according to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
How? How is God going to destroy our atmosphere and Earth as we know it? What I am going to try to do is reveal to you what the Spirit of Truth has revealed to me. It is up to you, if you choose to believe it or not to believe it. My hope is that whether you believe this or not, is when it does come to pass as I have said in this chapter, that you will also believe all the rest the Spirit of Truth has revealed to me in this book, and they are Salvation issues. That is my hope anyway.
How is God going to destroy the Earth? With Fire. How is God going to destroy our Heaven, which is our atmosphere? By returning this atmosphere to the way it was prior to the flood.
What? You don’t think it was a different atmosphere prior to the flood? Are you aware it never rained prior to the flood? Consider:
Notice that even the Garden of Eden the plants were not watered by rain, consider:
So then according to the Word, either a mist or rivers is what watered plants, prior to the flood. So the absence of rain shows it was not the same atmosphere we have today. Another big difference, if not the most evident, is that prior to the flood people, according to the Word of God, lived extremely long lives, living to ages of almost a thousand years. And there is evidence from the fossil records prior to the flood that suggests age of plants and animals alike also lived long ages, such as 2 foot grasshoppers, and 50 foot cattails, which could only get to those sizes if they had longer to live, and many other fossils that seem to suggest long ages of life prior to the flood.
Other than- time. What causes people, plants and animals to age? The Sun. Something was definitely different prior to the flood compared to after the flood. And it was our atmosphere. The atmosphere being entirely different also explains why carbon-14 dating is only accurate to the time of the flood, and is extremely inaccurate dating anything prior to the flood. Carbon-14 dating is only accurate in this atmosphere, not the one prior to the flood.
So then God is going to destroy this atmosphere we have now and give us a New one. An atmosphere like the one prior to the flood, and long age will be restored again. Long age being restored again is what Isaiah tells us will happen after the New Heaven and New Earth.
So God is going to restore the atmosphere to the way it was prior to the flood. Did you know that Scriptures teach that at one time there was a layer of water above our atmosphere? This layer of water would indeed protect people, animals, and plants from the harmful rays of the sun that actually causes a person to age faster. This layer of water would make the planet like a greenhouse. But does the Bible tell us there was water above our atmosphere? Yes. Let us go to Genesis Chapter One:
Notice the Earth had no form, that is to say the Earth had no solid substance, and reading on in the same verse it says God moved upon the face of the waters. So then according to this Scripture the Earth was a ball of water, on the first day. So the first day God moved over the ball of water and created light so He could see what He was doing, The second day He created our atmosphere.
What is a firmament?
So then, according to the Word of God, God called the firmament Heaven. So I am going to show Genesis 1:6, substituting the word firmament for Heaven.
Do you see what it is saying here? That our atmosphere is divided between two waters. How can our atmosphere divide waters? The only explanation is there was water above our atmosphere and water below our atmosphere. Many people say, that is dividing the waters into seas, oceans, and lakes. The problem with that is we are talking about the 2nd day of creation and there was no LAND. Dry land was created the 3rd day, not the second day.
First day, there was a ball of water and God created light. Second day, God created our (atmosphere/Heaven/Firmament). Third day, He created land out of the waters. So the second day could not have been to create oceans, seas, and lakes, all those things require land.
But on the second day He divided the waters from the waters and put our atmosphere between them. Still doubt? Well the next verse God put in just in case people did not get the truth from the previous verse:
So from what the Word of God teaches there was a layer of water above our atmosphere. Looking at Saturn in our Solar System, it isn’t too hard to believe that it is possible. Saturn’s rings are made up of frozen water, ice. If Saturn would be closer to the Sun like the Earth is, it would be a layer of water and not a ring of ice as it is now. And a layer of water that you would not even be able to see, it would be transparent, you would see through it like glass, only you might see more stars and they may seem closer and brighter, because water magnifies what you see on the other side, but other than that you would not even know it is there looking up from the Earth.
Where do you think enough water could come from to flood the entire world?
If there was a layer of water above our atmosphere as the Word says there was, and it is no longer there now, as we know it is not. Then at some point it had to come down. This happened when the entire world was flooded, and all that water came from that layer of water that was above our atmosphere and there was enough of it to rain on the whole Earth for 40 days and 40 nights. We get a downpour that lasts a few hours and roads and crops are flooded under, a downpour that lasts 40 days and 40 nights will indeed flood the whole Earth. When the weight of the water sinks into the crust in underground rivers and reservoirs, and enough evaporation and cloud formations are created, and water starts to freeze and float, called icebergs, at the North and South Poles, dry land will begin to appear.
If God is going to destroy our atmosphere by returning it to the way it was prior to the flood, which means He is going to restore that layer of water back to above our atmosphere. To do this, will take 7 years of Tribulations. God will destroy the Earth with fire, during the Tribulation period. Much heat will be required to evaporate the water that will be needed to refill this layer of water where it needs to go, something extra will need to happen, which I will discuss later, to make it go that extra step to fill it.
For now consider all these verses which refer to the last days and the fire:
John the Baptist said:
Jesus confirms this Himself in His Parable of the wheat and the tares:
Jesus is quoted saying:
What about Saint John the Beloved of the Lord, what does he have to say about fire and the Tribulations?
Now some Old Testament prophesies:
The prophet Joel has something to say concerning the Tribulations, we know this because of verse 1 that he is referring to the last days, and pay special attention to verse 3 which gives us a time line (sort of), talking about the fire and desolation but a Garden of Eden after that time of fire, also notice in verse 6 which prophesies that all faces shall gather blackness, from all the fires I suspect.
As you can see, Scriptures prophesize that the entire Earth is going to be burned with fire. With all that fire it will cause a great deal of evaporation of water. Here are some Scriptures which speak of rivers drying up and no more oceans.
Please understand, any large body of water was called a sea. So oceans were considered to be seas in those days. And according to the Word of God, God will dry up all the seas, which would include the oceans.
No more sea, where did all that water go to if there are no more seas or oceans? Well most of it went to fill that layer of water above our atmosphere is where the water went. And there is a particular day coming, according to the Scriptures, that will be hat as an oven, consider:
And Isaiah describes this particular day even better:
According to Malachi a day is coming that will be as hot as an oven. Isaiah says a day is coming when the moon will shine as bright as the sun, and the sun will shine in one day, 7 days worth of light and heat. That day water will boil like Isaiah says in 64:2. Saint John may be describing this day in:
Even the Patriarch David might have referred to this day:
Do you know what protects the Earth from radiation from the sun? Our magnetic field that wraps around our planet is what deflects harmful rays to our planet. Scientists now are saying that the Earth will go through another polar shift, that is where the North Pole becomes the South Pole and the South Pole becomes the North. They say it will not happen for thousands of years from now. They say during that switching of the poles, however long it takes the Earth will be unprotected by the magnetic shields, This is the time the Earth will be most vulnerable to the harmful radiation of the sun. What if the Earth is bombarded by asteroids, could this not cause a Polar shift to prematurely switch? Consider this Scripture:
What if this inspired by God Scripture is a reference to God shifting the poles, which indeed would turn the world upside down. Maybe during the shift when we lose our magnetic protection is the day that the Earth shall burn as an oven, we shall soon see.
Well we see that there will be much fire during the Tribulation Period and much heat will cause much water to be evaporated. However evaporation is not enough to push the evaporated water into the higher atmosphere where it will return to water. So then something else has to happen to give the evaporated water a little extra push.
What if the planet were to spin faster? Then Centrifugal force would be enough to push that evaporated water that extra step so that layer can start filling up with water. I realize how this may sound, but I have Scriptures that support this ideal. How do you get a basketball to spin faster on your finger? You would strike it in the direction of its spin.
So what if an asteroid the size of a Mountain and a comet the same size, both hit the planet in the direction of its spin, would this not cause the planet to spin faster? Theoretically scientists say this is possible.
Now Scriptures teach the Earth will be hit by an asteroid the size of a mountain and also a comet.
So at the Second Trumpet a huge asteroid the size of a mountain hits the planet.
Please note, most comets are referred to as miniature stars. So at the third Trumpet another object hits the planet again. So the Earth has taken TWO huge impacts. What if, both of these hit the planet in the direction it is spinning, could this not make the planet spin faster? Sure it could, provided they are big enough and fast enough and at the right angle. Yes they could. Let us look at the fourth Angel when He sounds his Trumpet, if it will shed any light on what happens after the 2nd and 3rd Trumpets.
According to this verse something happens to 1/3 of the day and an equal amount of time happens to the night as well. What if, this is a description of the Earth spinning faster? True enough if we were to lose 4 hours during the day and 4 hours during the night, we would indeed lose 1/3 of the day and also 1/3 of the night as well.
So then the 2nd Trumpet sounds, a burning great Mountain hits the Earth, the 3rd Trumpet sounds, a star hits the Earth, and the 4th Trumpet 1/3 of the day is gone, and 1/3 of the night as well, and if you read on, the 5th Trumpet is yet another star that hits the planet.
The question is, are there any Scriptures that would seem to support this belief? That somehow our Earth is going to change its current speed and path?
Notice it said “Though the Earth be removed “. Think about that.
How can the entire Earth move out of her place? Isn’t the Earth on a set orbit around the sun? A definite place? A set pattern where it is suppose to be when it is suppose to be. So we see several Scriptures that talk about the Earth being removed, or moved, or out of place. And we haven’t even gotten to the most convincing of these verses yet.
Tell me, what is the only conclusion that is possible for the Sun to set at NOON? The Sun does not move faster, because it is not the sun that moves. What has to move faster in order for the sun to set at NOON? Yes, our planet has to speed up its spin, in order for the sun to set at NOON. Like the Word of God says it will. This verse, if to be believed proves that the Earth will spin faster, if we are to ever see the sun set at NOON. Now the next few verses from ISAIAH are the MOST convincing.
Did you notice the statement “for the windows from on high are open “ ? The last time those windows from on high were opened it flooded the entire Earth. Maybe God is revealing to us in this verse, that the windows on high are opened – to receive the water back to itself, just a thought. Let’s continue with the next verse:
WOW! The major prophet Isaiah plainly tells us that the Earth will be moved exceedingly, and that the Earth will reel to and fro as if it were drunk.
The 7 year Tribulation period serves two purposes for God. First purpose, He is going to restore the atmosphere to the way it was prior to the flood, for His 1,000 year reign on Earth, the whole Earth will be like the Garden of Eden during the 1,000 years. It is God’s Sabbath. In order to restore the atmosphere to its ideal condition, He has to destroy this atmosphere we have now and the Earth as well, and He destroys them with fire. The fire is the second purpose of the Tribulation period to punish the wicked and to destroy the wicked off the Earth. The wicked will not be Raptured with Christ, nor will they survive the Tribulation period, to live during the 1,000 year reign of Christ. God will destroy the wicked off the face of the Earth during this Tribulation period and at the same time restoring the atmosphere to the way it was prior to the flood. So His 1,000 year reign on Earth will be a Paradise for His chosen few.
Now you can believe this will happen or not believe, as for me I KNOW IT WILL HAPPEN, even as I have described it in this chapter. My hope for you is, that you are not doing anything, that God will Judge you as wicked, because you will experience this chapter first hand if you are not abiding in the Word of God.
Remember the Word says, those who believe in Jesus shall be Saved (John 3:16) AND the Word reveals to us over and over again that those who believe in Him, OBEY HIM. The Word even right out tells us who will have Eternal Life.
Those who Believe + Obey =Eternal Salvation. Those who have Faith + Works = Eternal Salvation.
Please read chapter “Faith, Works, or Both?” for more information on that.
So according to I John 1:6-7 As long as you are walking in the light as Jesus walked in the light, THEN His blood will cleanse you from all sin. So if you walk in the light NOW and remain in that light, endure to the end, then you will be Raptured up with Christ and His Second coming, and you will not experience the 7 last plagues that will be poured out on the Earth to destroy the wicked. (wicked = those who continue to do wickedness, and does not cease from them)
