In Quick Succession - Fire, Flood, Earthquake with War and Bloodshed!
"More and more, as the days go by, it is becoming apparent that God's judgments are in the world. In fire and flood and earthquake, He is warning the inhabitants of this earth of His near approach. The time is nearing when the great crisis in the history of the world will have come, when every movement in the government of God will be watched with intense interest and inexpressible apprehension. In quick succession the judgments of God will follow one another - fire and flood and earthquake, with war and bloodshed" 9T 97.1
"In quick succession, the next great event is a devastating earthquake on a scale similar to the Great Lisbon Earthquake of November 1, 1755. California will suffer. Millions will die. If men will not respond to God's mercy, men will respond to God's judgments."
Historic US fires and historic US floods follow a continuous cycle. In quick succession, the next great event is a devastating earthquake on a scale similar to the Great Lisbon Earthquake of November 1, 1755. California will suffer. Millions will die. If men will not respond to God's mercy, men will respond to God's judgments. This catastrophic earthquake will impel people back to God and church on Sunday. Religious leaders will promote the need to make Sunday observance mandatory to stop natural calamities and return to material prosperity. But Sunday observance is not found in the Bible. As found in the fourth commandment of God, the Bible commands that we worship the Creator on the seventh-day Sabbath. Enforcement of Sunday observance brings increased calamities and a time of trouble for commandment keepers who acknowledge only the Bible as their authority.
The San Francisco Business Times reports, "...California floods could trigger earthquakes."
"Extreme amounts of rain caused by back-to-back storms systems in the state could create enough pressure in the groundwater system to trigger earthquakes along California's faults, a new report says." 6
Just as shaking a person awakens them from sleep, God is about to shake this earth with His mighty hand to awaken us from the sleep of carnal security.
More earthquakes will follow. Jesus says, "And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences" Luke 21:11.
The Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 fulfilled the words of Jesus, "And great earthquakes shall be in divers places." This earthquake that devastated Spain crushed Lisbon, Portugal's capital and largest city. In 1755, Lisbon was "one of the biggest ports on the Atlantic Ocean, the city played a critical role in world trade" (History.com, Earthquake takes heavy toll on Lisbon). In addition, Lisbon was known to have a homosexual subculture.
Rictor Norton in his essay, "From Twickenham to Turkey: Eighteenth-Century Gay Subcultures in Europe, America and Australia" shares the following:
"There is also evidence of a homosexual subculture in Lisbon and elsewhere in Portugal in the mid-seventeenth century. Effeminate homosexuals (fanchons) met together in rooming houses, danced together wearing female clothes in the streets, and used female nicknames or men's names modified by feminine diminutives... In the more organized subculture of Lisbon, sodomites patronized certain inns and met one another in private homes, as well as used a widespread street culture of male prostitution... Many of the sodomites were married, but nevertheless recognized themselves as part of a group who shared homosexual tastes. Many were also exclusively male-oriented." 7
Today some of the busiest trading ports use the Pacific Ocean. The largest and richest trading ports from Asia Pacific to American ports, located in Los Angeles and San Francisco California, play a critical role in world trade. Similar like the sodomites of Lisbon, San Francisco is the LGBT capital of the world and Los Angeles is the pornographic film capital of the world.
The judgments of God are about to fall on these two great cities and others. Just as the Great Lisbon Earthquake stirred discussions on theodicy—this Great California Earthquake will stir the moral apathy of Americans. This leads to a great push toward morality and attending church on Sunday, the mark of the beast.
"Just before the earthquake was in San Francisco all night, I was seeing such devastation, just as though I was in the midst of it, and the judgment day seemed to come... Now, I tell you this because I know that earthquakes are coming. I know they are coming right upon Los Angeles and other places" MS 188, 1907. 8
"This is that of which Christ warned His disciples when He said that before His coming there would be earthquakes in divers places... I feel sure that San Francisco and Oakland will again be visited with the judgments of God" LT 2, 1909. 9
When Christ laid down His life and died, an earthquake marked the event [Matthew 27:51]. When Christ took up His life and rose in power, again an earthquake marked the event [Matthew 28:2].
As with Christ, so it goes with the Antichrist - the Papacy.
The Great Lisbon Earthquake on November 1, 1755 foreshadowed the "deadly wound" of the papacy. The Catholic Church lost life and power about 40 years later during the French Revolution. The Great Lisbon Earthquake marked that event. The influence of Catholic Church departed during the 1798 French Revolution when the pope was taken captive. Its world dominant presence died. So this Great California Earthquake will coincide with the meteoric rise of the Catholic Church and its return as a global power through the support of the United States of America [Revelation 13]. A Great California Earthquake will mark this event.
Revelation 11:13 KJV
v.13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Bible prophecy records three woes or the last three trumpets that were to sound before the return of Christ. It delineates the rise of barbaric tribes and Islam ("out of the bottomless pit") that terrorized and overthrew the Roman Empire and that exist today in the likes of ISIS [Revelation 8:13].
Within the events of the second woe are recorded the history of France. During the French Revolution, France by national decree defied God by declaring support for atheism ("out of the bottomless pit") and immorality [Revelation 11:8,14].
Today, America stands as the counterpart of France during 1793. By endorsing same-sex marriage through The Supreme Court, America endorses immorality and with the spirit of atheism virtually says as did Pharaoh, king of Egypt, "Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice?..." [Exodus 5:2]. Yet, God's "two witnesses" (Old and New Testament) will speak again!
During the French Revolution, France, a tenth-part of the Western Roman Empire withdrew support from the Papacy in 1798 when the Pope of Rome was taken captive by Napoleon. This event gave the Papacy it's "deadly wound" [Revelation 13:12], which is now almost completely healed.
The intense moral depravity of France in 1798 coincided with the fall of the Papacy. The intense moral depravity of America will coincide with the rise of the Papacy.
France, once one of the greatest defenders of popery, became one of its greatest opponents during the events of the French Revolution. America, once one of the greatest opposers of popery during colonial times, will become one of its greatest advocates when a great earthquake strikes California.
The United States will soon heal the wound of the Papacy. Protestants in America will join Popery and Spiritualism after "a great earthquake" batters California. God allows this earthquake to strike San Francisco and Los Angeles because of its central role in defying God through LGBT support and immorality. A "tenth part" of the people of California will die. Based on the current population of California, approximately 4 million people will lose their lives in this horrific event. "Seven thousand" denotes a complete symbolic numbering of the people who perish. "The remnant" afraid and panic stricken will give "glory to the God of heaven." After this great earthquake, the loud cry of the third angel sounds, "Babylon the great is fallen.... Come out of her, my people" Revelation 18:2-4. The last movements will be rapid ones.
"In the future, cities will certainly feel the terrible results of earthquakes and fires.... Out of the cities, is my message at this time. Be assured that the call is for our people to locate miles away from the large cities. One look at San Francisco as it is today would speak to your intelligent minds, showing you the necessity of getting out of the cities.... Let all who would understand the meaning of these things [The Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906] read the eleventh chapter of Revelation. Read every verse, and learn the things that are yet to take place in the cities. Read also the scenes portrayed in the eighteenth chapter of the same book" LT 158, 1906. 10
The words below were penned less than three months after The Great San Francisco Earthquake of April, 18, 1906.
"The time is nearing when the great crisis in the history of the world will have come, when every movement in the government of God will be watched with intense interest and inexpressible apprehension. In quick succession the judgments of God will follow one another, - fire and flood and earthquakes, with war and bloodshed. Something great and decisive will soon of necessity take place" RH July 5, 1906.11
Again, these words were repeated in 1909.
"The most awful destructions, by fire and flood, are following one another in quick succession. The terrible disasters that are taking place from week to week speak to us in earnest tones of warning, declaring that the end is near, that something great and decisive will soon of necessity take place."
"Confusion fills the world, and a great terror is soon to come upon human beings. The end is very near. We who know the truth should be preparing for what is soon to break upon the world as an overwhelming surprise."
"Probationary time will not continue much longer. Now God is withdrawing his restraining hand from the earth. Long has he been speaking to men and women through the agency of his Holy Spirit; but they have not heeded the call. Now he is speaking to his people, and to the world, by his judgments. The time of these judgments is a time of mercy for those who have not yet had opportunity to learn what is truth. Tenderly will the Lord look upon them. His heart of mercy is touched; his hand is still stretched out to save" The Watchmen, December 1, 1909.12
What causes a merciful God to send judgments? We have turned our back on God as our Creator. We listen to the words of religious leaders and men like pope Francis rather than follow the teachings of the Bible. Hypocrisy has become an art form as mainline Protestant churches and pope Francis accept the sins of the LGBT community.
Will America lessen the guilt of the LGBT community and place the blame of natural calamities on those who refuse Sunday observance? While calling for better moral living, yet deflecting the issue away from the moral failure of our country that supports LGBT, will the United States of America persecute Sabbath keepers who keep holy the seventh-day Sabbath and refuse Sunday observance?
America will maintain same-sex unions. And just as the religious leaders in Christ's day accepted a murderer and robber calling for the death of Christ—so religious leaders in America will minimize the immorality of same-sex unions and call for the death of those who keep the commandments of God and worship on the seventh-day Sabbath.
Lawmakers will lessen the law of God to promote Sunday observance over Sabbath keeping; they will continue to lessen the sin of same-sex unions rather than stand unflinchingly for Biblical marriage. Pretending to stand for Biblical marriage and moral living, religious leaders will nevertheless support inclusiveness of the LGBT community. To truly stand for Biblical marriage, Americans must call same-sex unions an abomination, sinful and a disgrace in the sight of God. Religious leaders, including pope Francis, will advocate Biblical marriage and other moral reforms while deceitfully patronizing LGBT people. God calls these leaders hypocrites. True love for God does not patronize sin. The LGBT lifestyle is sin - even when celibate. That's Bible truth!
