In light of the massive earthquake and tsunami that ravished the Japanese coastline, its inhabitants and economy, I could not help but think of that catastrophic setting EXPONENTIALLY magnified to global proportions.
In a day predestined by Almighty God coming up in the near future, near the end of the Great Tribulation time period (Rev 6-19), just before the Lord Jesus Christ’s returns to planet earth to destroy the demonically driven and diminished global armies of the Anti Christ (Zech. 12:8-9, Rev. 16:13-16; 19:11-21), a GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE so EXPONENTIALLY unimaginable will ABSOLUTELY ravish the world’s topographical landscape beyond ALL comparison.
So EXPONENTIALLY great will this earthquake be, so EXPONENTIALLY catastrophic, that ALL of the world’s islands and coasts will be forever more removed off of the face of the earth (Rev. 16:18-20). Global tsunamis’ will wipe out whatever coastal and island populations that have survived this horrendous seven year time period (Rev. 6-16). Continental landscapes will be upturned and rivers diverted beyond ALL recognition. The remaining forests, plains and lakes (Rev. 8:7) will be absolutely wiped out, scattered abroad and rent. The GREAT MOUNTAINS of the world (the Himalayas, Appalachian, Andes, and Rocky Mountains etc.) will be brought down to dust and will not be found (Rev. 16:20)! Whatever remains of the world’s once GREAT cities and their inhabitants (Paris, London, Hong Kong, New York, Rome, Moscow, Beijing, New Delhi etc.) will ALL be finally and utterly wiped out and buried beyond all recognition (except Jerusalem "that Great city") (Rev. 16:19). It is - at this time - Almighty God’s way of demonstrating and saying to little finite godless and rebellious man, ENOUGH is ENOUGH (Isa. 24:5-6, Hag 2:6-7, Rev 16)!!!
By this GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE shall EVERY fault line and tectonic plate be move out of its place and will absolutely transform the present continental landscapes as we know them to a wasteland of carnage, destruction and a catastrophic heap. This EXPONENTIAL quake will obliterate all resemblance of this present world and obliterate any works of splendor that mankind has designed and created since the Tower of Babel 4300 years ago (Gen. 11 – Rev. 18). Just as Almighty God used the Genesis flood to obliterate the godless and exponentially violent Enochian pre-flood world’s society and culture (Gen. 4:16-17; 6-7, 2 Peter 2:5; 3:6, 1 John 3:12, Jude 1:10-11) so also shall this EARTHQUAKE wondrously accomplish Almighty God’s will in bringing to naught mankind’s godless achievements and accomplishments– but to far lesser level (Rev. 16:18-20). What is even more sobering and unimaginable then this EXPONENTIAL CATASTROPHIC EARTHQUAKE – which takes place near the end of the Great Tribulation - is that the surviving inhabitants - of this earthquake and hail bombardment - of the Anti Christ’s 666 global state (Rev. 13) will seek with ALL their godless vindictive being to grope and crawl with ALL of their innate hatred and hardened hearts to war with Almighty God at the Battle of Armageddon (Psalm, 110, 2 Thess. 2:10-12, Rev. 16:21). Oh my friend, How hard can the heart of a created being of Almighty God get towards the RIGHTEOUSNESS and ETERNAL LOVE of ALMIGHTY GOD (John 3:16-17).
What words can we find or use to even try to begin to describe these EXPONENTIAL calamities and judgments which will be unleashed by Almighty God on rebellious mankind during this time (Isa. 24:5-6, Rev. 6-16). WONDROUS, EXPONENTIAL, STUPENDOUS, AWESOME, MIND BLOWING utterly fail to describe what Almighty God will do unto the godless inventions and rebellion of unregenerate and hard hearted man (Rom. 1:18-32). These WONDROUS judgments are done not to just judge mankind for their wickedness but to wake up godless man to repent and be saved (return and be delivered) to their Creator and Savior (John 3:16-17, Rom. 2:4, 1 Peter 3:20, 2 Peter 3:9, 15).
The awesome and horrific footage of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami is just but a finite picture of what will be on a global scale just before Christ returns to destroy the Anti Christ’s remaining armies at Armageddon (Zech. 12:8-9; 14:2-4, Rev. 16:13-16) Are you ready to stand in His HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS PRESENCE.
The Big Picture and Heart of the Matter
The ETERNAL BIG picture is that we All must give an account to Almighty God’s RIGHTEOUS Person (Rom. 10:2-4, Heb. 9:27, Rev. 20:11-15). This little fallen broken world is but a moment and must answer to ALL ETERNITY. This world is a stage for temporal mankind to display what he will do with the Person of Almighty God and His laws of nature and ETERNAL laws of RIGHTEOUSNESS.
The absence of man’s adherence to the ETERNAL laws of RIGHTEOUSNESS and moral absolutes, have ravished this world’s inhabitants since the fall in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3-6). There is only ONE WAY out from mankind’s destructive nature and depraved paths of fallen humanity (Rom. 7:24-25). That way is found ONLY in the Person of Almighty God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ!
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name (Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12)
“Who (Jesus) gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father” (Gal. 1:4)
“Who (Jesus) delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver [us];” (2 Cor. 1:10)
The ETERNAL EXPONENTIAL LOVE of Almighty God!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
