Gatlinburg: "The Day Of The LORD Is Near"
Just over 10 days ago on November 20th, the planet Jupiter, which has been identified as Christ's star by a number of biblical scholars (see here and here), entered the womb of the constellation Virgo (the Virgin) where it will remain for exactly 42 weeks, or the length of a human gestation before being "born" on September 9th, 2017. Exactly two weeks later the birth concludes on the Jewish feast of Rosh Hashanah during an astronomical alignment that appears to fulfill a literal word-for-word reading of Revelation 12:1-2 and Revelation 12:5.
Only two short days later, on November 22nd, fires broke out all across central and northern Israel. Spurred on by dry weather and dozens of Islamic arson attacks taking advantage of the conditions, the fires rapidly spread across many cities. Tens of thousands of Israelis fled for their lives from Haifa, Israel's third largest city. By the time the fires were finally put out on November 27th, over 560 buildings had been completely destroyed and over 180 were injured. Dozens of arsonists were arrested.
Then the very next day, on November 28th, a wildfire was sparked on the Chimney Tops Mountain in Tennessee, a mountain whose elevation is 144,000 centimeters (reference; see Revelation 14:1). The fire rapidly spread - soon surrounding the town of Gatlinburg. 14,000 people were evacuated, but tragically 7 people were killed and the town was largely destroyed.
As workers began combing though the ashes and wreckage, a man named Isaac McCord found a single page from the Bible under a park bench. Though the page was burnt all around, several verses could still be discerned from the first and second chapters of the book of Joel (specifically Joel 1:14-2:1):
Declare a holy fast;
call a sacred assembly.
Summon the elders
and all who live in the land
to the house of the Lord your God,
and cry out to the Lord.
Alas for that day!
For the day of the Lord is near;
it will come like destruction from the Almighty.
Has not the food been cut off
before our very eyes—
joy and gladness
from the house of our God?
The seeds are shriveled
beneath the clods.
The storehouses are in ruins,
the granaries have been broken down,
for the grain has dried up.
How the cattle moan!
The herds mill about
because they have no pasture;
even the flocks of sheep are suffering.
To you, Lord, I call,
for fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness
and flames have burned up all the trees of the field.
Even the wild animals pant for you;
the streams of water have dried up
and fire has devoured the pastures in the wilderness.
Blow the trumpet in Zion;
sound the alarm on my holy hill.
Let all who live in the land tremble,
for the day of the Lord is coming.
It is close at hand—
Here is a picture of the actual page that Isaac found, which has now been picked up by NBC news and others - including Franklin Graham:
