Finding my Place – Part 3 of 5 Prophecy Posts

The Six Month Suggestion (SMS) is still going.  Every six months since 2007, there has been another fulfillment from Revelation.  I’d thought that the SMS was just for the Seals, but looking back in hindsight, I’m finding that the Trumps have been fulfilled in the same increments of time, and it’s blowing me away.  So far we’ve covered:

2007a: : ENPI begins judgments
2007b: Seal One: White Horse (unseen in Heaven)Seal One
2008a: Seal Two: Red Horse (Russian Reunification)
2008b: Seal Three: Black Horse (economic collapse)
2009a: Seal Four: Pale Horse (pandemics begin)
2009b: Seal Five: Martyrs at altar (unseen in Heaven)
2010a: Seal Six: Cataclysm (Terra events on a grand scale)
2010b: Silence in heaven as angels receive gifts (unseen in Heaven)
2011a: Censer cast to earth/quake (Honshu Japan/Fukushima)
2011b: Angels prepare to sound (unseen in Heaven)
2012a: 1/3 vegetation burned (Russia/Canada/US massive fires)
2012b: 1/3 sea life killed/seawater corrupted (radiation in Pacific)
2013a: 1/3 freshwater ‘made bitter’ (polar freshwater/ice melts)
2013b: 1/3 sun, moon, and stars darkened (Nibiru approach)

Anyhow, if you read Matthew 24 at the same time as Revelation, the timelines have some varying information.  The next thing in Messiah’s timeline after the Seal Judgments is ‘Israel, surrounded by Armies’ and the ‘Abominations of Desolation’ in the holy place.  This is not found in Revelation, but at the time that Revelation was written, this information was already penned in the Gospel of John.  Can I take a quick moment to show the fulfillment of this?  Because this also has already happened:

4/23/2014 began the surrounding of Israel with no holds barred
…….(this date being the ending of the Hamas/Israeli peace treaty).
8/4/2014 ISIS takes Syria
8/8/2014 ISIS establishes presence in Lebanon
10/26/2014  Israel attacked by Egypt to the south
8/6/2015 Obama states that ‘Israel stands alone’.
-and-
5/26/2014 saw the Upper Room in Jerusalem being given to the Pope during his first visit to Israel (and he performed the Mass in the Upper Room).  There’s our ‘abomination’ in the ‘holy place’.

But that’s not all that’s supposed to have happened in 2014, if our SMS theory is true.

I was going to jump into Trumpet #5, today, but there’s a verse between the trumpets.  It’s about an angel crying out ‘Woe, Woe, Woe to the earth!’ in Heaven.  I can’t skip it, because it might be a time relevant/event relevant verse.  It’s there for a reason. So let’s add that, as well:

And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!  Rev 8:13

Does it mark time?  It might.  It might be marking the time of the events Messiah foretold that aren’t included, for all that.  Look at the first two dates of each – 2014a.  Do you see it?  So there it is.

Now for Trump #5, the first of the ‘woe’ judgments:

And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 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.

And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.  And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.  Rev 9: 1-11

Whoa, these ‘woe’ judgments are more detailed.  And may I admit up front that I don’t know what the heck this is talking about?  Because I don’t.  It’s trippy.  We have three guesses, (Brian’s and two of mine), and I’m going to share them, but… I haven’t gotten confirmation on any one, yet.  And that’s fine.  He can tell us when it’s time for Him to tell us.

THEORY #1:  Zika Virus.  It was in Africa/Asia for something like eighty years, but all of a sudden it’s spread like wildfire, and has been classified as a pandemic by WHO (and Obama).  Mosquitos have a locust-y look, sound like an army when in numbers, have ‘breastplates’ and wings, tails somewhat like a scorpion, and hurt men.  This is Brian’s hypothesis.  I have issues because mosquitoes bite – the sting isn’t in the tail.  And Zika isn’t just five months on the timeline.  And the hair, crowns…?  I don’t know.  But it doesn’t seem or feel quite right.

THEORY #2:  Demons.  Bear with me on this… Looking at the Seal Judgments, numbers one (white horse) and five (martyrs) are unseen judgments that have an effect on us from the spiritual perspective.  So I was looking at the Trumpets, and trumpet #1 is a ‘hail blood and fire mixed and hurled upon the earth’, so that 1/3 of the vegetation is burned up.  We see the result, but the mixture and the act we don’t see.   So what if we see the result of trumpet #5, but not the deliverance/deliverers of it?  What if this is actually Satan, being given over the key to unleash his demons upon the earth?  To me, this is a possible explanation.  But it still doesn’t feel right.  And I still don’t understand the ‘five months’ thing.

THEORY #3:  ISIS.  There are three reasons that I believe it might be ISIS.
1:  It’s what most of the Biblical commenters believe, and provide credible evidence towards – that the locust army is Islam, from the Middle East.  The ‘golden crowns’ being Islam’s yellow turbans, the long hair of an extremist, the lion’s teeth being ferocity, the army references…  here’s what IVP commentary says:  “[Revelation’s] locusts are [more] like the locusts in Joel’s vision centuries later,A nation has invaded my land, powerful and without number; it has the teeth of a lion, the fangs of a lioness. It has laid waste my vines and ruined my fig trees. It has stripped off their bark and thrown it away, leaving their branches white“.’ (Joel 1:6-7; see also 2:1-11).  An army, not actual insects or figurative demons.
2:  I have another hypothesis: that trumpets 5-7 aren’t three separate woes, but one woe that has three phases, or stages of intensity.  And ISIS may just fit that, as I’ll show in tomorrow’s post, too.
3.  I was looking at this timeline graphic of the formation of ISIS, and it puts them as creating/naming themselves as a separate and deadly entity on the cusp of the second half of 2014.  The timing is perfect.  They’re an army, they’re like locust upon the earth, but not harming nature, rather people. ISIS fits.

The problem is that ‘five months of not killing men’ thing.  ISIS behead people… that’s definitely killing people.  On the other hand, they’re only kept from slaying people for five months, per scripture.  We don’t know when that five months is, or what it refers to (yet).  But regardless, after those five months, anything goes, no?  Death to the infidel?  We’re not told.

Something that really struck me was that they hurt anyone who didn’t have the ‘seal of God’.  Do you remember in 2014, when there was this really Catholic thing where we had to support christians in Iraq and Syria who were being targeted, by having this symbol/seal on their FB pages?  I just… it felt worth mentioning.  The people who had this symbol spray-painted on their doors/walls were being targeted, and were given a chance to leave, and thus ‘were not harmed’ because of the ‘seal’ they had on them.  Interesting to note, anyhow.  We haven’t seen anything like that since the swastika, and yet 2014 had believers marked with a symbol/seal and fleeing (not being harmed) because of it.  I don’t know.  But here’s what it says in Wikipedia, with my comments in green:

In gematria, [the Hebrew] Nun represents the number 50.  ((<< Fifty and five months… both fives.))  Nun is also one of the seven letters which receive a special crown (called a tagin) when written in a Sefer Torah.  In the game of dreidel, a rolled Nun passes play to the next player with no other action.  ((Passes by, no action taken!))

After the fall of Mosul, ISIL demanded Assyrian Christians in the city to convert to Islam, pay tribute, or face execution.[1] ISIL begun marking homes of Christian residents with the letter nūn for Nassarah (“Christian”).[2][3] Thousands of Christians, Yazidis (the latter whom were given only the choice of conversion or death) and other, mostly Shi’aMuslims (whom ISIL consider to be apostates) have abandoned their homes and land.

In response to the persecution of Christians and Yazidis by ISIL, an international social media campaign was launched to raise global awareness of the plight of religious minorities in Mosul, making use of the letter ن (nun)—the mark that ISIL troops spray painted on deserted Christian properties.[4] …The letter ن, in relation to this social media campaign, is being called the “Mark of the Nazarene” from naṣrānī (نصراني; plural naṣārā نصارى), a normative Arabic term disparagingly used by ISIL to brand Christians.[5]

So what do you think?  ISIS is timed impeccably.  The symbolism of an army, the ‘seal’ that left believers unharmed and able to escape, the location… it all fits.  And it was far more noticeable – it was on the FB pages of people all around the globe, in the form of a nun.  Visible, but not picked up on.

It’s interesting, anyhow!
