The Book (7) of Daniel and The Book of Revelation. ‘Bookends’ (7) Regarding Prophecy of the ‘End-Times’, Tribulation. Revelation 10:7 But in the (7) days of the voice of the seventh (7) angel, when he shall begin to sound, (7) the mystery of God should be finished, as he (7) hath declared to his servants the prophets. ‘10’ is the biblical number for ‘completeness on earth’. ‘7’ is the biblical number for (7) divine completeness to God’s plan or purpose.
Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year tribulation.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.
‘Time of the End’:
Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’: (NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.
(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)
4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, ‘7’ that there should be time no longer:
(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)
Acts 2:17-21 ‘And it shall ‘7’ come to pass in ‘the last days’, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. …
Daniel 1:17 As for these four young men, God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.
Joel 2:28 “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions.
Acts 2:17 ‘And it shall come to pass in ‘the last days’, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.
The ‘GREAT CITY’ (NEOM BABYLON) was DIVIDED into Three (3) Parts. And … ‘Every Island Fled Away’ and the ‘Mountains Were Not Found’ and the ‘Cities Of The Nations FELL.’ So much for Neom and other cities of the world. This What a Category 10 Magnitude Earthquake Can Do. (7) Continental plates are more unstable than previously thought
Revelation 16:18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, (7) so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city (NEOM Babylon) was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
Simple ‘Theology’; Yahweh ‘Y’ has the last laugh. The Beast/Antichrist ‘split’ Jerusalem and confirmed it throughout MENA (the MANY Arabic/Muslim Nations). Jerusalem is the ‘apple of God’s eye’ and HIS ‘seat on earth’ reserved for HIM in the Third Temple. Since the Beast/Antichrist ‘split or divided’ Jerusalem, Yahweh ‘Y’ will split, divide, cut or fracture NEOM (the Great City, the Whore, the Woman that sits on 7 scarlet and purple mountains, the Last Babylon) into THREE ‘3’ PARTS from the ‘greatest ever or will be’ earthquake. Three ‘3’ denotes God’s ‘intensity and emphasis of the matter. Coincidence? Three parts and ‘three tectonic plates’ UNDER Neom?
Seismic Hazard Assessment for Tabuk Region, NW Saudi Arabia
Ziyad I. Al-Besher King Abdul-Aziz City for Science and Technology, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Received August 2013. Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection 2013. Vol.1, No.3, 7-11 Published Online December 2013 in SciRes
Tectonic Setting: The Tabuk is an area located in the northwestern part of the Arabian Plate. This Plate is surrounded by three tectonic regimes; divergent, convergent, and transform. The divergent boundaries in the west and south represent the recent spreading along the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden respectively. The active convergent margin lies to the northeast in the Turkish Iranian Plateau, where continental collision has given rise to this Plateau.
The most important among the tectonic features is the northwest-southeast striking faults (parallel to the Red Sea), the Gulf of Suez rift, the Najd faults system, the Aqaba fault line, and northeast-southwest and east-west trending pattern. The geology and tectonics of western Saudi Arabia is dominated by the Arabian Shield, the Red Sea, and the Gulf of Aden in the west-southwest.
A major continental strike-slip fault zone bounds the plate in the northwest. This is the Dead Sea Transform fault which runs from the Gulf of Aqaba through the Dead Sea and Syria into southern Turkey. A second transform boundary exists to the southeast (offshore of Oman) in the intra-oceanic Owen Fracture Zone. This boundary with the Indian Plate is the oldest and least active tectonic margin of the Arabian Plate. The tectonic pattern of the region is inherited from the basement tectonics of ancient Nubian-Arabian shield, which received its main structural imprint during the late Precambrian orogenies.
The most important among the tectonic features is the northwest-southeast striking faults (parallel to the Red Sea), the Gulf of Suez rift, the Najd faults system, the Aqaba fault line, and northeast-southwest and east-west trending pattern. The geology and tectonics of western Saudi Arabia is dominated by the Arabian Shield, the Red Sea, and the Gulf of Aden in the west-southwest. Since the start of rifting, the Arabian plate moved northeastward from Egypt and Sudan, northward from Somalia, and rotated counterclockwise about a point in the vicinity of the Gulf of Suez. Such movement is accommodated by compression and strike-slip faulting along the Bitlis and Zagros belts, where the Arabian plate is undergoing a subduction beneath the Eurasian plate, and by strike-slip displacement along the Dead Sea transform fault. At present, the northern part of the Arabian plate moves northwestward with respect to the Eurasian plate at a rate of 20 ± 3 mm/yr.
Greatest Ever Earthquake (7) Continental plates more unstable than previously thought
Sunday, June 18, 2023 Watchers.news
A revolutionary research study from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign disputes the decades-old conventional understanding of the Earth’s continental plates. The study posits that the Earth’s ‘stable cratons’—previously thought to be immovable regions of continental plates—have experienced repeated deformations beneath their crust since their formation.
The research, led by Illinois geology professor Lijun Liu, utilized previously gathered density data from the lithosphere—the Earth’s uppermost rigid layers of crust and mantle. Liu’s team examined the relationship between the surface topography of cratons and the thickness of the lithosphere layer underneath them. The findings were published in the journal Nature Geosciences.
Cratons are the longest-lived tectonic units on Earth due to the lack of deformation they have experienced since their formation. They have survived supercontinent cycles, including the formation and breakup of Pangea and Rodina. Liu explained that the prevailing belief has been that cratons’ longevity was due to their “thick underlying mantle roots, or keels, which are thought to be buoyant and strong and thus stable over time.”
However, recent studies from Liu’s team challenge this view, showing that these mantle keels are indeed quite dense. In a 2022 study, Liu’s team demonstrated that most of the Earth’s cratons would be about 3 km (1.8 miles) above the sea surface if their keels were buoyant, whereas their actual elevation is only a few hundred meters. This discrepancy suggests that the lithospheric mantle beneath the crust must be dense enough to pull the surface down by about 2 km (1.2 miles).
By using gravity field measurements, the researchers identified the density structure of the craton keels. They found that the high-density material likely resides in the lower portion of the mantle keel, indicating an increasing density profile with depth below the cratons.
The new study reveals that the lower portion of the mantle keel, being denser, tends to peel away from the lithosphere above during mantle upwellings or plumes, initiating supercontinent breakups. After warming up within the hot mantle, these ‘delaminated’ keels could return to the base of the lithosphere. Liu likens the process to the movement seen in a lava lamp.
Furthermore, the team found that mantle delamination could cause the craton surface to rise and lead to erosion. This has significant implications for the crustal thickness of cratons, an observation never made before this study.
Liu highlighted two significant uplift and erosion events in the past, coinciding with the separation of the supercontinents Rodinia and Pangea. These events resulted in the ‘Great Unconformity’, a gap in the Earth’s rock record where no new deposition occurred, only deep craton erosion. These episodes of erosion are why ancient lower crust is exposed at the craton’s surface today.
The study concludes that this episodic deformation style of the lower craton keels has allowed craton crusts to survive throughout long geological periods. “We believe this newly hypothesized lifestyle of cratons will significantly change people’s view on how continents evolve and how plate tectonics operate on Earth,” Liu said.

But how can they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save them unless they believe in him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they believe in him (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear about him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).
. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).
. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).
. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
