After a great martyrdom of saints in Revelation 6:9-11, called the 5th Seal, something dramatic begins to happen. In v. 12-17 there is a great earthquake that belches up enough smoke to cause the sun to appear black. People will not be able to see the stars because it will appear they have collapsed and disappeared. Horror will grip the population of planet Earth.
An unusual event takes place that the populous will not realize is taking place. Invisible to the human eye, angels will come and seal 144,000 individuals from the tribes of Israel. Anyone who has the Holy Spirit is a saint and adopted into Israel (Ephesians 2). This SEALING is for Divine protection from what is about to occur next. This great earthquake will be caused by something that scientists at NASA have known since at least 1982. They have discovered the long sought for Tenth Planet in our solar system. It orbits far out into space and returns every 3-4 thousand years. When it returns, it will create weather conditions that are almost unbearable. The weather conditions would be determined by how close to the Earth it would come.
Revelation 8 gives us the details of this Planet X flyby! The Seventh Seal is broken down into Seven Trumpets. V.7 describes a comet, meteor, or asteroid plunging into Planet Earth as a result of this huge Planet X’s gravitational pull. It will break-up into many pieces, too large to burn up in our atmosphere; therefore, it will burn 1/3rd of the trees and all green grass. Mankind will go ballistic! They will think the “end of the world” has come. But it gets worse.
V.8-9 tells of worse events than forest fires. A great asteroid is pulled into our atmosphere and begins to burn. It will crash into the ocean killing 1/3rd of all sea creatures, and it will destroy 1/3rd of the ships carrying their cargo. The stench of rotting fish will be stifling. The shipping industry will be dead for all purposes. This will create tidal waves that will be unbelievably high. The coastal cities will be destroyed. Those who did not take the warning to flee coastal areas will be washed away. Millions will suffer death by this great event.
Yet another asteroid hits Planet Earth on a continent. It will poison many of the FRESH water-rivers and tributaries. It is recorded under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit that many will die as a result of drinking the poisoned water.
As a direct result of fires burning, volcanoes being set off by these asteroids, the visibility of the sun, moon and stars will be hard to see. Soot and smoke will flood the atmosphere and will be carried around the world by the jet stream.
There is a term called “Jacob’s trouble.” Israel was separated into two national dynasties of kings after Solomon’s death (I Kings 11-12). They are referred to as the house of Judah, which followed David’s throne, while the other was termed the house of Israel, composed of the Northern Ten Tribes that rebelled over heavy taxation. God sent a message to both to be understood in the last days. Jeremiah 30:4-7, “And these are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and concerning Judah. V.5 For thus says the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not peace. V.6 Ask you now, and see whether a man does travail with child? Wherefore (or why) do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? V.7 Alas! For that day is great, so that NONE is like it: It is even the time of Jacob’s TROUBLE; but he shall be saved out of it.
This will be the most horrorific time in human history. The entire human race will think they will die, therefore, the end of the world. But Satan has blinded the world to God’s overall plan for the human race!!! It will be up to God to reverse the collapse of everything we know that keeps our Earth working. And that He will do!
Look at Acts 3:18-21, “But those things, which God before had shown by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, He has so fulfilled. V.19 Repent you therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; v.20 And He shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you; v.21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of ALL things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.”
Jesus said to “watch.” These events are slowly creeping upon us. Will we get right with God before it is too late, or will we suffer and maybe die in this tribulation?
