The Earth Is Reeling & Rocking
“The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard . . .” (Isaiah 24:20a). There is great concern that the world’s largest volcano, which is located under Yellowstone National Park, is set to erupt, wiping out two-thirds of the United States. A storm of comets that is pelting the sun has alarmed NASA’s Solar and Heliospheric Observatory operators. The earth’s magnetic pole is said to be unleashing poisonous space clouds and harming the earth’s atmosphere. This was speculated to be causing the death of fowls that are falling out of the sky around the world. An earthquake off the west coast of America, which was at the same location of a previous earthquake in 1700 A.D., is said to be building and getting ready to explode. The study suggests that a thirty-five foot tsunami will strike the western coastlines of the United States with death.
Is all of this just scary talk or is this God’s plan to fulfill the Book of Revelation? Haggai promised by the Spirit, “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come” (Haggai 2:6-7a).
Our very earth, along with its created system of nature, is at the point of imploding. By the Holy Ghost Isaiah stated, “The earth mourneth and languiseth” (Isaiah 33:9a). Apostle Paul gave this statement a New Testament interpretation, “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” (Romans 8:22). This world was created in righteousness and the depravity of human wickedness is ripping the very beauty out of our earth. The present earth is like a formerly strong, healthy body that has been ravaged by cancer. Spiritually, our world is only “skin and bones” with a thin, yellow, leathery covering holding the last breaths in failing lungs. The Spirit said, “For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations . . . And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll . . . for my sword shall be bathed in heaven” (Isaiah 34:2-5).
Let’s add to this what Jesus Christ told John to write in his Revelation, “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, 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” (Revelation 6:12-14).
The details of the scientific facts about the movements and signs of coming catastrophes in our earth’s bio-systems and in the stratosphere above are alarming. Before we try to understand the picture of what is developing, let us first understand God’s plan and the final results of what is going on in the earth. Every catastrophic event that takes place in the last days of our world will bring about a glorious end. Our world is soon to be a recreated Garden of Eden.
The heaven above us is going to be rolled together as a scroll and disappear. The dwelling place of the Father and His heavenly hosts will soon be next door to the earth. During the Great Tribulation, the wicked will see the Father on His throne as they endure hell on earth. The saints that were raptured will be the Father’s elders and will participate with Him in ordering the cleansing judgment of this present planet. The total planet will be recreated in righteousness and will be fit for kings and priests to live in divine splendor.
God’s promise is beyond our mind to fully grasp, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea . . . And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful” (Revelation 21:1, 4-5).
It is an absolute fact that the coming judgment of the wicked is the exact opposite for the righteous. We are going to dwell in a world of perfect righteousness with every saint of God, every holy angel, along with the Father and His Son, joined by the Holy Spirit. The Heavenly Father and His Son are going to use their natural world and all the powers of nature to purify and cleanse this earth. When God judged Noah’s generation, He used the waters in the deep and the waters above to create a great flood. He even used Noah and his family to build an ark to save the species of creatures that He had created. When the flood was over, God sent the wind to blow and the sun to shine until man could step out of the ark and inhabit His earth again. He will do similar things again.
The same kind of earthquakes that probably occurred at the great flood and caused the mountains to rise and the valleys to descend will soon cause the opposite to occur. These great events will be so powerful and supernatural that there will be no more great seas. “…for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea” (Revelation 21:1b). The evidence of sea life has been discovered in the mountains of our present world proving that these mountains were once underwater. The upheaval of this earth was the direct result of sin. The shield that our Creator had erected over the earth was removed so the human lifespan would decrease from the 800 to 900 years that it had been possible for man to live. Again, we see the picture of our Father using nature or the rays of the sun to shorten life and give mankind less time to grow more and more wicked.
Studying about the world’s most powerful volcano beneath the Yellowstone National Park gives a picture of how fragile our world has become. The data about this volcanic field must leave all of us concerned. The size of the overall caldera is spread over an area of 300 miles. It is said to be 400 miles deep at its base and then rises upward to 30 miles beneath the earth’s surface before the 300 mile spread. This entire area is believed to be filled with white hot, molten rock. The experts tell us that this cauldron is expanding and has been lifting the floor of the park about 3 inches a year since 2004. This is the fastest rate since scientists began keeping records in 1923. An expert from the University of Utah, Bob Smith, stated, “It’s an extra ordinary uplift, because it covers such a large area and the rate is so high.” He further states, “We have no idea how long the process goes on before there is an eruption or the inflow of molten rock stops and the caldera deflates itself.” (www.dailymail.co.uk).
When you consider the increasing number of earthquakes, volcano eruptions, strange actions in the atmosphere, the continuing death of animals, and, then, wars and rumors of wars, multiplying incurable diseases, and the evidence of an Antichrist spirit taking control of our world’s mindset; we can’t help but see the Bible’s perfect picture of the end. There is no one that knows and believes the Bible that can offer one ounce of proof against what is about to happen. God can prolong the shadows and the signs, but wise people who have the fear of God must confess that the end is near. Actually, it is not the end of anything but sin, sorrow, and disobedience against God. It is the beginning of hope and happiness that has been unknown since the Garden of Eden was invaded by the thief that stole our human glory. He will soon pay for his lying and destruction.
