Largest hailstone in US, 8”, fell in Vivian, SD on 7/23/10.  Record-breaking river flood, 61.72’, in Cairo, Ill on 5/3/11.  Record-breaking fires burned 6.8 million acres in US in 2012.  Widest tornado in US, 2.6 mi, hit El Reno, OK 5/31/13.

“The Lord has a mighty strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to earth with the hand” Isaiah 28:2

Isaiah also prophesied of great earthquakes, storms and fires, “Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, with earthquake and great noise, with storm and tempest and the flame of devouring fire” Isaiah 29:6. Isaiah prophesied these things to backsliding Israel, but they are against all nations that forget God. History repeats itself and these prophecies apply to all the backslidden nations of the world today. The Bible says, “The thing that has been is that which shall be, and that which is done is that which shall be done, and there is no new thing under the sun” Ecclesiastes 1:9. In these last days, catastrophic events are happening throughout the earth, such as the Indian Ocean tsunami, which killed an estimated 280,000 people on 12/26/04, triggered by a massive 9.1 earthquake. We have also witnessed the 9.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Tohoku, Japan, on 3/11/11 (Japan’s most powerful earthquake in recorded history), and the resulting tsunami, reaching heights of 133 feet, reportedly killing about 30,000. The earthquake moved Honshu, Japan, 8 feet east and shifted the earth on its axis by about 4 inches. Jesus said concerning the last days, “There shall be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars, and upon the earth distress of nations with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring” Luke 21:25. Isaiah also prophesied concerning the last days, “The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard and shall be removed like a cottage, and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it, and it shall fall and not rise again” Isaiah 24:20. These signs are only a prelude to the greatest tribulation known to man. Jesus said, “Then shall be great tribulation such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” Matthew 24:21. This means that the holocaust will pale in comparison! Isaiah prophesied of “devouring fires” (Isaiah 29:6). The 2010 Russian wildfires were the worst in Russia’s recorded history. A record-breaking 56,000 people died from the fire, smoke and heat during the wildfires of 2010. Last year, by mid-August 2012, RT News reported that a record-breaking 6.8 million acres burned throughout the United States, which did not include acreage burned during the remainder of the year! Jesus said there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. A meteor streaked through the sky and exploded over Russia’s Ural Mountains with the power of an “atomic bomb” on 2/15/13. Its sonic blasts shattered countless windows and injured about 1,100 people. There were no fatalities, only because it exploded in a remote area; the damage could have been so much worse. The meteorite flew into the earth’s atmosphere at an estimated 33,000 mph. Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a Russian Nationalist leader, immediately blamed “the Americans.” Barack Obama has informed Congress that he will share some of our top secret missile technology with Russia. This type of action on Obama’s part is only the tip of the iceberg concerning his plans to bring America’s “super power” status to an all time low – on purpose - comparative to other nations. The angel of the Lord told me upon waking on 11/27/11, “With the sleight of hand, the nations will be turned upside down.” Only today, as I was studying Psalms, I came across a very similar statement, “The Lord preserveth the strangers; He relieveth the fatherless and widow; but the way of the wicked He turneth upside down” Psalm 146:9. I was amazed as I read and studied this passage of scripture. The Lord revealed to me during my Bible study on 2/8/10, that He would return “shortly.” I had a dream of the rapture on 2/7/10, then I had a vision (while awake and sitting in my living room) of the same rapture the following morning, on 2/8/10. I sat down to study the Bible after this vision, where I had left off the previous day, turning to Genesis 41:32, and I began reading, “And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice, it is because the thing is established by God and God will shortly bring it to pass.” The Lord did not give me a day or an hour, because He has already said in His Word that the Father has not revealed that to anyone. Nevertheless, it is very clear that the Lord revealed me that the rapture will happen “shortly.” Considering that after Pharaoh’s dream, the catastrophic drought and famine happened within seven years, it may be indicative that “shortly” could be defined as within a seven-year time period by the Lord, and that would be from the year of my dream and vision, in 2010, which might very well bring us to about the year 2017. As we can clearly see from the cataclysmic events described above, a lot can happen over the next four years. Are you prepared to face God? If not, salvation is free and it’s only a prayer away. I pray you make the right choice; it will last for eternity.
