The New Madrid Fault Line and Impending Doom. Pastor Robert Breaker
Four-fold Seal Wraths Poured out on Earth:
- Great earthquake. (Rev. 6:12).
- Sun becomes black. (Rev. 6:12).
- Moon becomes blood. (Rev. 6:12).
- Stars in heaven fall to the earth. (Rev. 6:13).
Commentary: When Christ opens the sixth book seal, natural calamities are unleashed on the earth and heavens (not heaven). The Seal Wraths, Trumpet Wraths and Vial Wraths all alternate between affecting men and the earth. In the case of wraths being poured out onto the earth, they increase in severity and intensity going from least (seal wraths) to greatest (vial wraths). There is a very consistent pattern of affliction to the sun, moon and stars; and to the earth, it’s seas, fresh water systems (rivers, fountains and lakes), the foliage and the earth’s internal structural integrity. God afflicts man through his wrath poured out on the earth in several substantial ways. Many peoples of the earth rely on the seas to provide them with their livelihoods and food. Other areas of the earth are extremely dependent on fresh water systems for drinking water and related uses like irrigation for crops and water for livestock. Elsewhere, peoples are dependent on grasses and crops for feeding not only humans but livestock. Without the sun, crops will die and ultimately so will livestock. God is in effect, causing severe stress on earth’s life-supporting systems for men. In many areas of the world today, drought makes it extremely difficult to eak out any form of subsistence. This will get worse. God causes these general calamities to affect the earth, in order to get evil mankind’s attention during the Tribulation. At this point, God is ‘shouting’ at evil mankind, through natural means.
Four-fold Trumpet Wraths Poured out on Earth:
- “The first angel shouted, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.” (Rev. 8:7).
- “And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.” (Rev. 8:8-9).
- “And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.” (Rev. 8:10-11.
- “And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.” (Rev. 8:12).
Commentary: Through the four trumpet wraths, God starts ‘yelling’ at evil mankind. He is turning up the heat a notch, so-to-speak, by increasing the affliction of earth to the point where various life-sustaining systems are destroyed. This includes sea creatures and man himself. 1/3rd of trees and 1/3rd of grasses burnt up. This affects livestock and animals in the eco-systems that are reliant on the forests and jungles. 1/3rd of the sea is contaminated which causes 1/3rd of sea creatures to die. 1/3rd of sea going vessels are also destroyed by the “great mountain burning with fire that is cast into the sea.” Pick any of the world’s major oceans to be the recipient of the great mountain burning with fire. It doesn’t matter which ocean is targeted, as they are all ultimately interconnected. The spill-over effect of one ocean being contaminated affecting adjacent oceans is ecologically obvious. It won’t take much to affect 1/3rd of the world’s salt-water oceans in becoming contaminated enough by a large meteor or of a super-massive volcanic explosion from the ocean depth. The contamination effectively kills off 1/3rd of global sea life.
Consider today the volcanic effects resulting from the volcanoes erupting in Hawaii, Guatemala, Bali and around the world. Here in the United States, the super-volcano that sits underneath Yellowstone National Park has geological scientists very worried, due to its ‘swarm earthquakes’ and substantially increased geyser activity. To harm the ocean is to harm its sea life and commercial ships that rely on harvesting the ocean. At this point, God also decides to pour his wrath out on earth by means of poisoning 1/3rd of the fresh water systems around the world (rivers, lakes, fountains). Because sea water (salt water) is undrinkable, most nations that do not have any formal de-salination technology, have to rely on fresh waters systems (rivers, lakes, fountains) for drinking water and its related uses to sustain human and animal life. The Bible is clear that a great heavenly object called “wormwood” is cast to earth which causes 1/3rd of freshwater systems to become bitter (polluted or contaminated to an unhealthy degree) to the extent that men die from drinking this water. The water of the earth, seas and fresh water systems, have been so afflicted that evil ma’s existence comes into question because of his reliance on the seas, lakes, rivers and fountains. Take away water, and man starts to die. Just as God and Christ started getting men’s attention by affecting the sun, moon and stars in the sixth book seal, the affliction of the sun, moon and stars gets turned up a notch by the fourth trumpet angel. Now, God is targeting his wrath to affect 1/3rd of the sun, 1/3rd of the moon and 1/3rd of the stars to become darkened during the day and not shine likewise at night. Daytime will be darkened by a third, and night time will be darker by a third.
Four-fold Vial Plagues Poured out on Earth:
- “And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.” (Rev. 16:3).
- “And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.” (Rev. 16:4).
- “And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain.” (Rev. 16:10).
- “And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” (Rev. 16:12).
Commentary: Ultimately, and finally, God starts ‘screaming’ at evil mankind through the final four vial plagues poured out on the earth in totality. Up until this point, God has turned up his wrath incrementally. Initially, he showcased supernatural wrath with first time afflictions of the earth proper. Next he showcased his wrath by affecting 1/3rd of the earth’s suface foliage and waters (sea and fresh) and 1/3rd of the heavens (sun, moon, stars). Here at the end with the vial plagues, God turns the knob of wrath, all the way up to high. The afflictions of the earth that sustains evil mankind is total. All seas become as blood. “Every living soul/creature dies in the sea.” 1/3rd of freshwater systems (rivers, fountains, lakes) also become as blood (which is progressively worse than being bitter from wormwood). The sun, moon and stars are totally darkened so that the beast’s kingdom and capital are completely dark (no sunlight, no moonlight, no starlight). The light that shines on the earth has gone progressively darker from a one-off darkness during the seal judgements, to a 1/3rd darkness during the trumpet wraths to total darkness with the vial wraths.
Lastly, Rev. 16:12 is unique in that this is the only wrath verse that indicates an entire river is dried up (Euphrates) to allow passage for the kings of the east to participate in The Great Day of the Lord aka the battle of Armageddon. This suggests that the vial plagues take place shortly before Christ’s second coming to earth, sometime during the Great Tribulation or last 3 ½ years of the total Tribulation period. These plagues will obviously affect men to the point of being in a frenzy of hatred and anger, and for them to vent blasphemy and curses at God. The beast/antichrist uses this to fuel worldwide motivation for a gathering of the world’s armies to arrive at Armageddon. The river has to be dried up so that thousands of tanks and armored vehicles of every sort can quickly cross the span of the river bed. Evil mankind’s existence is so threatened by these worldwide plagues that they feel the only thing they can do (other than to repent and ask Christ’s forgiveness through the shedding of his blood and resurrection) is to fight or make war against him. They do no succeed in this attempt and are totally annihilated.
Four-fold Reference to Plagues Poured out on Evil Mankind:
- Torment by Demonic Locusts: . . . “And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.” (Rev. 9:3-6).
- Noisome/Grievous Sores: . . . “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.” (Rev. 16:2).
- Scorching Heat: . . . “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And Men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” (Rev. 16:8-9).
- Great Hail: . . . “And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.” (Rev. 16:21).
Commentary: These plagues or afflictions round out God’s plan of pouring out wrath upon evil mankind. For the most part, the trumpet and vial wraths are poured out on the earth directly; sun, moon, stars, seas, rivers, lakes, fountains, trees, grasses and the earth’s internal structural integrity. All these natural elements support man’s existence on earth. In the first four seal judgements (horsemen of the apocalypse), God is using evil men against evil men, through wars – famines – pestilences and death. The carnage during this early period of the Tribulation is caused primarily by men acting upon men. God saves his worst wrath (vial plagues for the earth) just prior to Christ’s second coming, a.k.a. The Great Day of the Lord. The four wraths described above are directly poured out upon men. Three afflictions come from nature and one affliction comes directly from a demonic source (supernaturally evil locusts).
