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:

  1. And northern Italy is flooded, flooding and rain in the Pacific Northwest, flooding and tornadoes on the deep south, earthquake in new zealand, earthquake in fukushima, 8500 seek medical care with 6 dead and 5 in icu in Melbourne Australia after lightening storm, flooding in China and Great Britain. .. and I'm only half paying attention.

    1. It's all coming to a head. I just posted this on Matt's article over at the Daily Crow:

      MP: I’m covering this also over at Unsealed.org and have linked to your excellent post. Another observation:

      According to news reports, the fire that burned Gatlinburg started on Chimney Tops *Mountain*. This mountain has an elevation of 1,440 meters (direct from its Wikipedia article and topographic maps) – *144,000* centimeters.

      Compare to Revelation 14:1:

      “Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on *Mount Zion*, and with him *144,000* who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.”

      And then the visible portion of Joel 2 from the burned page found:

      “Blow the trumpet in Zion;
      sound the alarm on my holy hill.”

      This is a reference to Mount Zion! 144,000 Jews will be sealed as Joel’s prophesied ‘Day of the LORD’ soon commences. Secondly, two verses stand out about fire being kindled from mountains:

      “To the Israelites the glory of the LORD looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain.” – Exodus 24:17

      And… Hebrews 12:

      18 You have not come to a *mountain* that can be touched and that is *burning with fire*; to darkness, gloom and storm; 19 to a trumpet blast or to such a voice speaking words that those who heard it begged that no further word be spoken to them, 20 because they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned to death.” 21 The sight was so terrifying that Moses said, “I am trembling with fear.”

      22 But you have come to *Mount Zion*, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

  2. Amazing correlations make me somehow hopeful that our redemption draweth nigh. 'Somehow hopeful' because God is also long-suffering and He may allow many more years to pass before anything happens.

    1. Certainly long-suffering, but I'm amazed at all that's going on. I've never seen anything like it - especially the possible Rev. 12 sign. I plan on further studies on that in the near future.
