7 Trumpets Placement in Regard to Tribulation Period
Trumpet 4 – Upper Level Volcano Cloud Starts to Form
September 15, 2014
The future sounding of the cloud forming upper Shield
Martyred Souls in Heaven Now increasing Numerically
They’re anxious to return to earth Behind Jesus Christ
Ruling under him there 1000 years as Kings and Priests
Martyred Fellow Servant Brethren NOW Joining Them,
Will rapidly increase numerically after Seal 6 is Opened
But WILL NO Longer BE added AFTER Trumpet 7 Sounds!
When Seal 6 Is Opened The Tribulation Period Begins!
As it Opens the World will be Cast into Tectonic Chaos
I don’t expect Seal 6 to open until Obama leaves Office
I don’t know precisely how long afterward it will Open.
Antichrist will arise from a current Middle East Chaos
From Greater Syria to offer a long term Hudna to Jews
After He has Driven Israelis into the Negev Wilderness
The Age Of Increasing Martyred Souls Is Now In Force,
And it shall Not Cease until the Sounding of Trumpet 7
Trumpet 5 is the start of a growing World Cloud Shield
Revelation 6:9-14 – And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.  And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;  And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.  And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Revelation 8:12 – And the fourth angel sound, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the thrid part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so that the third part of them was darkened , and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
SPECIAL PROPHECY UPDATE NUMBER 183A
July 31, 2004
Tectonic Chaos – Chapter 6 – The Gray Thickens
Zechariah 14:6 – And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
As I indicated in Chapter 1 of this series, due to requests for copies of my first book, which I allowed to go out of print, I decided to reprint it, making any changes necessary to update it after 27 years have past. I updated Chapter 4, “The Blue Turns to Gray” in a previous Prophecy Update. Much of Chapter 6 deals with the same phenomena in Chapter 4, because when I wrote “Birth Pangs from the Bottomless Pit,” I combined the two into a single chapter. The Birth Pang Figures in our Archives that deal with Chapter 4 are Numbers 10 to 14, while those dealing with Chapter 6 are numbers 14 to 16.
Modern man in his running “to and fro” has discovered the strange qualities of sunlight. We now know that in some ways sunlight behaves like waves, and at other times it behaves as though its composition is a maze of particles. Man has discovered several laws of light. Two in which I am particularly interested are the law of diffuse and regular reflection of light, and the law of the refraction of light. All laws in the world of science are of God. They are like the one who made them in his natural creation, in that they do not change, and are consistent in producing the same results. It is not the purpose of the author to teach physics to the reader, so I will refrain from a technical discussion of the two laws, but will refer those interested to a general physics text. The reason “the light will not be clear, nor dark,” is that the earth’s upper atmosphere (the stratosphere) will be filled with a cloud of suspended, microscopic, volcanic particles. The incoming light from the sun, by a process of diffuse reflection, scattering, and refraction, while passing through the cloud shield, will be dimmed such it will not be “bright as day” on earth’s surface, nor will it be “dark as pitch.” It is the perfect picture of how much light would be reaching the earth’s surface if its stratosphere had been filled with a volcanic cloud of smoke particles. It is precisely what light is like on a cloudy day anywhere, but this will be a cloud covering all the earth, and it will simply be a cloudy day at every point on the surface of the planet. To a Hebrew, like Zechariah, “clear” light was the light that came down on him unrestricted by clouds, while “dark” was the total absence of light as on a starless night. It will not be totally dark or totally bright anywhere on earth. There is no better way to put it, a cloudy day is one in which the sunlight is restricted in its full glow on earth’s surface but, on the other hand, it is not pitch dark, and there is some light (See Birth Pang Figure 14).
Zechariah 14:7 – But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
A most unusual phenomenon: light at night from the sun! When will it occur? The answer is found in verses 4 and 5, which describe the cleavage of the Mount of Olives, a definite occurrence of the latter portion of the Tribulation Period. In the latter part of the Tribulation Period the great cloud shroud of figure 14 will have established itself around the entire earth above the tropopause. It is this great cloud shroud that will fulfill the prophecies of verses 6 and 7. Verse 6 states that the light will not be clear nor dark. To a Hebrew, clear light was unobstructed light, a light that came from its source to fall on an object with few, if any, obstructions along its path. A Hebrew viewed darkness as the absence of light. So we are advised that there will be some light (it will not be pitch dark), but the light will not be clear light (it will be partially obstructed). This is a perfect description of what we call a cloudy day. On days when the skies are overcast we do have light, but it is not clear light, for the clouds obstruct our view of the sun. The light on a cloudy day always reaches us by a process that involves reflection, refraction, and scattering of the light from the sun. During the latter portion of the Tribulation Period man will not see the sun. But limited light, of varying degrees, will penetrate the great cloud shield in the stratosphere. It will be a very dull, gray, depressing light in which the inhabitants of the earth are struggling for survival. But how can it come to pass “that at evening time it shall be light?” How is it possible that, at every location on the face of the earth, there will be some light during the evening hours when normally it is pitch dark?
About 20 years ago, after presenting a lecture series in California for Dr. Reed, I departed the Los Angeles area by jet to Dallas, flying at an altitude just below 40 thousand feet. It was a beautiful day from the surface to the top of the atmosphere along the entire flight path, with clear skies above and below the aircraft. As we crossed Arizona and New Mexico the light from the sun beamed upon the ground below us, and through the air above us. When we crossed into Texas there were no clouds below or above us, and the sun was beaming on the aircraft with its full brilliance, but as I looked toward the earth’s surface I begin to notice tiny pinpoints of light on the ground. People had turned on the lights below us because it was dark at ground level. The curvature of the earth had already blocked off the surface rays of the sun at ground level across Texas, but at our flight level and above it was broad daylight. If there had been a way for me to take the light at high levels and direct it downward, it would have produced light on the surface below, where darkness had enshrouded Texas. It is not by accident that the God of light, who is Light, has very conveniently established a law in nature where this is predictably possible – The law of refraction.
Laws are not theories. They are like God because they are made by God. They are consistent and can always be counted to act in a predictable, unchanging manner. It is not my purpose to teach physics, so I will refrain from a technical discussion of the law itself, and will rather refer those interested in such a dissertation to any general physics textbook. Refraction occurs because light waves travel at different speeds through different substances. Refraction involves the bending of light waves as they move from one medium to another. In figure 15 you can see the bending effect on light as it passes from a less dense medium (air) into a denser medium (water). If you want to see this bending of light in action, drop a pencil and a coin into a glass about three-fourths full of water. The pencil will appear to be broken at the water surface, and the coin will appear to be on the side of the glass. This is a phenomenon produced by refraction.
Why is it that we still have light long after the sun has disappeared over the horizon? And why do we have light in the morning before the sun comes into view? You guessed it! It is the law of refraction at work. As the sun’s rays travel through space, they move very rapidly, as if in a vacuum, but when contact is made with the more dense atmospheric medium of the earth, the light decelerates, and is bend around the curvature of the earth by the law of refraction. This law causes the light to reach the surface before the sun appears in the morning, and to trail behind on the surface long after the early evening sun disappears.
The great cloud of volcanic smoke will be firmly established as shown in figure 14 by the time the battle of Armageddon occurs. This great encompassing shroud will vertically be thousands of feet thick and, as such, a very dense medium through which the sun’s rays must filter on their way to the earth’s surface. As the rays filter through by refraction and scattering, they will be severely bent around the curvature of the earth’s surface. As you may observe in figure 16, the small island, on the opposite side of the earth from the sun, would normally be experiencing an evening of complete darkness. However, because of the refraction and scattering of sunshine through the great volcanic cloud, light would be bent around the earth to strike the island, and “it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.” Such would be the case at every location on the surface of the earth. The intensity of the light at any given point would be affected by the distance it had to be refracted, and by the thickness of cloud through which it had to pass. No spot on the earth would receive clear light (unobstructed), and no spot on the earth would ever be dark (lightless).
