360 vs. 365: God’s prophetic Clock August 8, 2008

I just wanted to share this remembrance from the research of Guy Cramer as I was looking into some information. I find it fascinating that the precision of God is evident in His creation and that His eternal plan, running on its original time, is the clock by which God has laid out human history from His creation of us to the time of redemption for them that love and obey Him. It is through the highlights of the Hebrews that He has brought this redemption to mankind, becoming flesh from a peculiar people and to enter this world with humility to serve those that would reject His ways of love that we could repent and be forgiven. So it is through this Hebrew clock, set to God’s time by obedience to His decrees, that He reveals His plans to us through His work to redeem not only His bride, but also His chosen people. To Yeshua be the glory as is the will of God. More information on the Hebrew Calendar.

In the past I have mentioned that as a result of God’s intervention on Israel’s behalf to glorify His name in destroying the Magog attackers, that there will be a spiritual shift in Israel that may spur the rebuilding of the temple. I recently had some scriptures brought to my attention that I believe may scripturally point this out and I would like to share these passages with you.

Acts 2:16-21
But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Is there more context to this passage quoted from Joel that could give us more information as to the meaning?

Joel 2:15-25
Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God? Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things. (Ezekiel 38,39 – Magog invasion from the North which God decimates in the mountains of Israel leaving but 1/6 of them.) Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things. Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil. And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

There appears to be a sequence in Joel 2 that goes from a time of increase for Israel to a point when a Northern army is removed far off from Israel. This is where the Magog invasion comes in from the past posts…

Ezekiel 39:21-29
And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward. And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword. According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

It is after God decimates the Magog invaders that Israel knows He is the LORD their God from that day forward. This doesn’t necessarily mean that they accept Yeshua as the Messiah, but as compared to the largely secular state of Israel today I’ve posited that there will be a spiritual shift that will bring the nation of Israel back to a place where the nation will rebuild the temple and begin the daily sacrifice once again in the ways of their fathers. What I hadn’t noticed before was Ezekiel 39:29 in relation to the following continuation of Joel 2 after driving off the Northern army…

Joel 2:26-29
And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

There seems to be a distinct similarity between what happens after God drives off the Magog invaders from the North, Israel’s recognizing God’s sovereignty as a nation again and God pouring out His Spirit upon all flesh. What is even more interesting is the progression of events continues to show wonders in the heavens and the earth leading to the signs of the sixth seal that heralds the day of the Lord and sudden destruction soon following it.

So it seems possible that Joel 2 follows a progression of end time events that describes Israel at a time just prior to an attack by an army from the North that God drives away through a time of the latter rain bringing great increase to Israel afterward and a pouring out of God’s Spirit on all flesh during this time. Imagine the state of Israel during this time of God showing His power in her protection and Israel’s blindness to Yeshua as the Messiah. I can imagine that they will have a strong national desire to rebuild the temple, yet with the Dome of the Rock still located where it is, they will only build the inner court so that the two temples will rest side-by-side fulfilling Revelation 11:1,2. More on that here.

This will set up everything for the stopping of the daily sacrifice by the man of sin who will then declare himself to be God and set himself up as an idol to be worshipped in the Holy of Holies. This is the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet and Yeshua in Daniel 9:27 and Matthew 24:15-22 respectively.

Matthew 24:29
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

It is this time just after the abomination of desolation when the signs of the sixth seal take place, immediately after the time of Jacob’s trouble. The sixth seal is the sign just before the day of the Lord, heralding the sudden destruction that comes like the days of Noah and Lot that the bride escapes. We are not in darkness, keep watching!

Middle East Update: Interesting Summer? July 12, 2008

In case you’ve just joined the Watchman Newsletter or have not yet seen some of the stories linked from it, my current theory in light of what I’ve studied from the Bible and seen in current events reported here is as follows. (I’m just watching and reading in prayer, so in all things hold to Acts 17:11.)

The attack of Ezekiel 38 & 39 where Iran, Russia, Turkey, Libya and friends attempt to destroy Israel and God destroys them with fire and brimstone from heaven, will come before the abomination of desolation and indeed be the event that both quiets the opposition and cause a spiritual shift in the nation of Israel that will lead to the rebuilding of the temple for the third time in several millennia.

Ezekiel 38:2-6; 16-23
Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 39:1-8
Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand. Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured. Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel. Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken.

From these passages, I believe that the Magog armies will be pulled into a confrontation with Israel. (hooks in their jaws) God’s destruction will be expressed in natural form with fire and brimstone from heaven. Even though things happening in the nature are usually discouraged from association with God’s design, the timing of the natural event with the attack will be a clear trumpeting of Bible prophecy as being real and present in a concrete manner for most. Some may remain in denial, but anyone who knows anything about Bible prophecy will be awake and aware.

Israel has God’s Word intertwined with them and even though they can’t see the fulfillments of the shadows in Yeshua, this is clear and from the Tahakh, Old Testament. So while Israel has not accepted the Meshiach Nagid as presented in prophecy at the triumphal entry, their faith will be strengthened and it is my belief that the Nation of Israel will return to the ways of their fathers and require the rebuilding of a temple to begin the sacrifices again setting up the way for the abomination of desolation and the beginning of the time of Jacob’s trouble. More on the Temple Mount here.

Revelation 11:1,2
And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

Revelation 13:1-5
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: [abomination of desolation] and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

You can read more about the beast and 10 horns here. Now the question is, what triggers this series of events that could very well lead to the fulfillment of the above prophecies? (more…)

The Coming Times: 2008 And Beyond March 3, 2008

In the course of studying Bible prophecy and watching current events, a series of events became clear that I would like to lay out for you here. It began with my personal search through the Bible to see for myself if God’s Word clarified itself to the point of the bride of Christ being able to understand the times in which we live. I had read in the Bible that we would not be in darkness and that we should watch and pray, but there are so many personal interpretations of scripture out there and I hadn’t taken the time to really search the scriptures myself because I didn’t feel I had the background to understand. So acknowledging my deficiencies, I came before the Lord in prayer and asked Him to reveal His Word through the guidance of the Holy Spirit and show me His plans and not my own desires or interpretations of His plans.

 This doesn’t mean I’m always right and this is not a claim to have all the answers. I will never stop warning people not to take my word for anything but to search the scriptures themselves to see whether these things are so. Acts 17:11 The Watchman Bible Study website is the result of my search for Truth and my desire to share the clarity I’ve discovered written into and interpreted by the Bible. While I am not always correct the Bible is, and so if this sequence of events does not turn out to be completely accurate that doesn’t change the Bible’s validity, just shows my lack of full understanding.

What I would like to focus on in this post is a collection of diverse prophesies found throughout the Bible in the order of events as understood through examining the context of these prophesies in light of the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies. The premise of this collection of research by other watchmen on the wall traces Israel’s judgment history through time and showing how that snaps to Israel’s feast days and the 70th week of Daniel, the final seven years of God dealing with Israel before His return in glory. These studies examine the precision of Bible prophecy and history to build faith in what was already fulfilled with 100% accuracy to look toward the future with faith that God’s Word will again be fulfilled in the future with that same accuracy. According to Matthew 24:14,15 “the end” comes at the abomination of desolation, which the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies place in just under one year (February 16, 2009) from today (March 3, 2008).

I am not lost on the significance of making a statement like this, but I am sure if you examine the information at the links provided, you too will see the significance of what I am going to share. Please also note that while this post is focusing on Bible prophecy that is 100% accurate in its future fulfillment, there isn’t the kind of precise dates connected to them and so the timing is my estimation based on my research. This is this watchman’s perspective on what may come to pass in 2008 and how that will explain and connect to the HIStory, Our Future conclusions for the timing of the 70th week of Daniel and the abomination of desolation that will transpire in the midst of that seven years – 2009.

Treaty of Lisbon
amending the Treaty on European Union and the Treaty establishing the European Community

The Lisbon Treaty is basically the European Constitution under a different name. It offers many of the powers previously sought to create a Foreign Minister position that would speak for Europe. Regarding who that power has been given in the past, I will let the leaders speak for themselves.

We have finally decided that Europe will speak with one voice, that of Mr. Solana. | Jacques Chirac: Regarding Solana’s visit to Damascus for the Hariri inquiry Solana to Restore EU Ties with Syria (March 9, 2007)

Solana has the power and has had it since January 30, 1999. We are speaking with one voice through Javier Solana. | Madeline Albright: USA Secretary of State Regarding Solana being given sole power to make all further military decisions over NATO Balkan operations.

I agree with Javier Solana’s decision to do this. | Bill Clinton: March 21, 1999 in regards to the forthcoming bombings from the above quote.

Revelation 17:12,13
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

In short, I will share some excerpts from this new European government structure and show also how it is connected to NATO and thereby the United States to have military and civilian assets available in the event of an emergency as determined by Mr. Europe to conquer terrorist forces if need be to keep order, peace and security. And so by peace many will be destroyed.

The following are excerpts from the documents linked above. The purpose is to show in the documentation how power consolidation is being made such that all resources will be available to the High Representative over the military and civilian forces of the EU and UN:

Article 9e page 9

2. The High Representative shall conduct the Union’s common foreign and security policy. He or she shall contribute by his or her proposals to the development of that policy, which he or she shall carry out as mandated by the Council. The same shall apply to the common security and defence policy.

3. The High Representative shall preside over the Foreign Affairs Council.

Article 13 page 9

3. The common foreign and security policy shall be put into effect by the High Representative and by the Member States, using national and Union resources.

Article 19 page 11 - With the LISBON TREATY Solana has a foot in the UN security Council and has the EU countries there work for his interests:

“Member States which are also members of the United Nations Security Council will concert and keep the other Member States, and the High Representative, fully informed. Member States which are members of the Security Council will, in the execution of their functions, defend the positions and the interests of the Union, without prejudice to their responsibilities under the provisions of the United Nations Charter. When the Union has defined a position on a subject which is on the United Nations Security Council agenda, those Member States which sit on the Security Council shall request that the High Representative be asked to present the Union’s position “[…]

Article 9e page 12

2. Furthermore, the Conference recalls that, as regards the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy whose term of office will start in November 2009 at the same time and for the same duration as the next Commission, he or she will be appointed in accordance with the provision of Articles 9d and 9e of the Treaty on European Union.

Daniel 7:25
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Revelation 13:1-9
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear.

Revelation 17:12-14
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

I would like to share my reason I believe it will be this generation and that Herb Peters observations and reporting agree. I’ve shared the HIStory, Our Future Bible studies link over and over and decided recently to present the information in shorthand as far as the reason I believe it is significant based on the fact that God’s timeline of prophetic events always revolve around the nation of Israel. And God’s dealing with Israel cannot continue until previous judgments prescribed are completed.

I don’t believe in coincidence and that is what this would have to be if not God’s design spelled out from His Word, here a little and there a little. Isaiah 28:9-13 This is an overview without details in my own words. If you want to verify the individual studies, click the links.

The Escape of the Bride to the Marriage of the Lamb November 2, 2007

Matthew 25:1-13
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

This parable is representative of the rapture of the bride of Christ to the marriage. We can see upon examining some ancient Hebrew wedding traditions how these were physical foreshadows from earthly marriage to the future marriage of the church to Christ. As we will see, this study highlights the importance of obedience to God’s Word as true Christians living a life of selfless love toward God and others. It should also be noted that marriage to Christ is in the spiritual sense of two becoming one like marriage. The church is the body of Christ and He is the head of the church. The head gives direction to the body as God has done in His Word. We are promised to Christ now for a future time when we will be together in more than just spirit. The point of first meeting is upon being called out to meet Him at His coming.

This going out at Christ’s coming to meet Him can be placed in the timeline of prophetic events based on how Christ’s coming is described and a time we are promised escape from. Both Matthew 24:36-39 and Luke 17:26-30 associate Christ’s coming with sudden destruction like the days of Noah and Lot. Prior to both of those times coming, the earth was in a place of spiritual wickedness and ignorance to their impending destruction until it came suddenly and they did not escape. Likewise, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 describes a time when God’s wrath comes beginning the day of the Lord. This time comes suddenly like a thief in the night from which those caught by surprise will not escape. We are warned to not be caught up in the cares of this life and a life of ignorance so this day doesn’t also catch us off guard. Our point of escape from this destruction of God’s wrath is laid out in Luke 21:34-36 regarding a time coming on all them that dwell on the whole earth.

Luke 21:34-36
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earthWatch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Our escape coincides with Christ’s coming followed by sudden destruction. Ephesians 5:1-8 states that God’s wrath is for the children of disobedience whom we are not to be partakers with. So if God’s wrath is for the children of disobedience and we are removed prior to that wrath, a dividing line of obedience vs. disobedience to God is laid out determining who escapes when Christ comes to gather His bride and who does not. This highlights the importance in a Christian trying to remain obedient to God’s Word of selfless love for Him and others.

As you will see, this isn’t just an escape, but the point of departure to attend the marriage of the Lamb. Some interesting points of similarity are highlighted when we examine ancient Hebrew wedding tradition that I believe is relevant to understanding the details of this parable. There are two parts to the marriage according to tradition.

Global Warming and the Day of the Lord October 27, 2007

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

The Earth is warming, but not because of us. We may have some effect in obvious ways like the detriment to our health when you see the air around some cities or the destruction of large amounts of forest, which produce the oxygen we need. But the truth of the matter is that what is happening is much more serious than that and will soon disrupt life as we know it on earth for everyone. However there is nothing that anyone can do to change what is about to happen.

How do I know that we aren’t the cause of global warming and there is nothing we can do about it? The fact of the matter is that Earth is not the only planet in our solar system heating up or showing increased energy. If other planets are heating up too and the sun has been more active over the past 100 years, then our pollution is not somehow getting to Mars or Saturn. We have not yet invented a dial to adjust the sun’s temperature or reverse the continuing decreased magnetic field of the earth, but even so it is not so much what is happening but what is coming and why.

What’s causing this?

Since our whole solar system is being affected, the cause is something other than humans because we only live on Earth. So what is it then? The sun goes through changes that affect the whole solar system over long periods of time. So something is going on with our sun that affects the solar system, all of which are affected by electromagnetism and gravity. Regarding the electric nature of our solar system and galaxy, please watch The Thunderbolts of the Gods. But besides temperature increases, is there anything else affecting our solar system? Yes.

NASA Press Release 1992
“Unexplained deviations in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune point to a large outer solar system body of 4 to 8 Earth masses, on a highly tilted orbit, beyond 7 billion miles from the sun.”

On January 26, 1983, NASA launched the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS). They found something large at the edge of our solar system. On December 30, 1983 the Washington Post published an article about a mystery heavenly body discovered possibly the size of Jupiter from the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescop aboard IRAS.

“A heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescope aboard the U.S. infrared astronomical satellite. So mysterious is the object that astronomers do not know if it is a planet, a giant comet, a nearby “protostar” that never got hot enough to become a star, a distant galaxy so young that it is still in the process of forming its first stars or a galaxy so shrouded in dust that none of the light cast by its stars ever gets through. All I can tell you is that we don’t know what it is,” Dr. Gerry Neugebauer, IRAS chief scientist for California’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and director of the Palomar Observatory for the California Institute of Technology, said in an interview. The most fascinating explanation of this mystery body, which is so cold it casts no light and has never been seen by optical telescopes on Earth or in space, is that it is a giant gaseous planet as large as Jupiter and as close to Earth as 50 trillion miles. While that may seem like a great distance in earthbound terms, it is a stone’s throw in cosmological terms, so close in fact that it would be the nearest heavenly body to Earth beyond the outermost planet Pluto.”

I believe the cause of these changes in the sun and disturbances may be from the gravitational and electrical effects of what is being called Planet-X. Please read through and watch the videos on Planet-X at that link. These affects would be seen in the disruption gravitationally in planetary orbits and electrical changes if the mass was great enough. This would translate to changes in the sun’s activity, which has increased over the past century, and that energy affects the core of earth, increasing volcanic activity both above and below the ocean. This is all happening now as volcanoes are waking up around the ring of fire and there are increased earthquakes globally and in some diverse places.

The volcanic activity around the earth is increasing and we are discovering that our ocean is littered with active volcanoes. They heat the ocean, which affects the ocean currents. These in turn affect weather and sea life, not to mention the ice at the poles. Understanding the electrical nature of our universe and how the celestial bodies interact, we can see that the arrival of a large planet, or as some believe a brown dwarf star, would have tremendous effects on both water and earth tides.

In addition to the sun’s effects on the inside of the earth, there is the charged plasma that is ejected from the sun with a continually weakening magnetic field protecting the earth. This protective field could also be disrupted with another celestial body coming into the solar system. There are also concerns that the Earth’s magnetic field may be about to go into reverse.

Does our government know about all this? The projected orbit of Planet-X has it entering the solar system from south of the solar plane. In 2007, an infrared telescope was installed at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Some believe Planet-X is a brown dwarf star, which would be difficult to see because it doesn’t put out a lot of visible spectrum light, although it does show up in the infrared. If the government does know about this, and I believe elements do, they are powerless to do anything to stop it or the ramifications of its arrival. In this powerless state I believe they would opt to make this remain a secret while planning for the disasters.

If you are alarmed now, there is more to this that goes to the very core of your eternal nature as a creation of God. It spans eternity and the choices you make will determine that eternity. If you think I’m just a kook or religious whacko, I encourage you to actually read my website. I promise that I say this out of selfless love and desire to see you in eternity, if you love God and choose His way. John 14,15 For those who love God, there is nothing to fear. For those who don’t, there is still time to change your mind. Seek the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – you will find Him, He already knows you and is waiting for you to want to know Him.
