Hawaii’s Volcano Signals Impending Calamity on US

Volcanic Countdown to Apocalypse? May 19, 1780, May 18, 1980, May 17, 2018Signs Closer together

“Not random evolution of global warming, but Intelligent Design to warn us of impending judgment on the US,” says Dr. Richard Ruhling, re Google listing of a Mt St Helens’ eruption photo as an omen of Hawaii? It erupted on May 18, 1980, darkening three states with ash on May 19 as an echo of the Dark Day, May 19, 1780.that early Americans saw as a biblical sign.

Ruhling is the author of God Bless America? (Amazon) and he says the time of judgment in Revelation 14 is impending this month because God gives man “six days to do all his work” (Exodus 20) and ‘a thousand years are as a day’ according to St. Peter’s 2Peter 3:8-10. “6,000 years are complete and time is up as current events are showing, and the context refers to things “reserved unto fire against the day of judgment.” verse 7. 

Why this month? One reason might include May 17 was the New Moon or new month day–and it could have sign quality for what’s impending in the month.

Christ’s closing parables support different aspects of the same huge event, because they have the same timing, “as the days of Noah” when the Flood came with Passover timing, but in the 2nd spring month. Passover was when God “executed judgment” (Exodus 12:12) and the sacrifice was selected on the 10th day (verse 3). That was when Noah entered the ark in Genesis 7:7,11. When people refused Noah’s invitation, they selected themselves for sacrifice.

The 10th day of the month, counting from the New Moon would be Saturday, May 26. We might see a sign that supports this information, like a significant earthquake in California, as a warning.

Another example of the 2nd spring month is when women missed a wedding in Matthew 25:10. Christ said, “Watch” (clue for Passover as the only night that being awake was commanded. It would be unfair for Christ to ask this if there were no clues.) 

“You don’t know the day or hour” is a poor translation of the Greek word, eido, It means to be aware or understand. Christ was saying, You don’t understand because it’s like a man traveling to a far country, Matt 25:14. If Israelites took a long trip in spring and couldn’t get back for Passover, they were to keep it a month later—2nd month, Numbers 9:10,11. That law is still in effect, Matthew 5:18 and that timing example linked Christ’s last two parables.

Another example is the goodman who is on a long journey in Prov 7:19,20, King James, so he comes at 2nd Passover as above. Christ said, if he had known, he would have watched and not suffered his house to be broken by the thief, “ Matthew 24:43. This suggests that watching, being awake, is protective, as seen by Christ’s saying, “If you don’t watch, I will come on you as a thief,” Revelation 3:3. The time to “watch and pray” as Christ said in the context of Passover in Matthew 26:38-41, but it’s 2nd Passover, Wednesday night, May 30; churches should focus on this opportunity. 

This coming as a thief is linked to “the day of the Lord” that comes in the context of 6,000 years as the 7th millennium begins: This also shows that the 7th day (Sabbath) is the Lord’s day as in Mark 2:28, not Sunday as the papacy claims (and with no biblical support). Judgment falling in this 7th millennium would warn against a papal UN New World Order, (Rev 13:14) which is the image government (beast) of the 1st beast (papacy) in Revelation 13:1-10 where the deadly wound by the sword was the Protestant Reformation. The Bible is Sword, Hebrews 4:12. 

The judgment impending on the US is a megaquake that initiates the biblical end-times as seen in Joel 2:10,11 and Revelation 8:5,6. The LA Times, Oct 22, 2015, gave an 88-99.9% risk of a major earthquake in 3 years. The San Andreas Fault is said to be “locked, loaded and ready to roll.” YouTube.

      So then, could Hawaii possibly be fulfillment of the second trumpet prophecy?

      Revelation 8:8,9

      8Then the second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned to blood, 9a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.…

      If that volcanic ‘mountain’ burning with fire, went into the sea, then it could kill much sea life in the pacific and tsunami could take out ships near shore.

      Good question, Paul. The language sounds like it, but I don’t think the context supports it because we haven’t seen the earthquake in verse 5 that initiates the end-times. It is linked in Joel 2:10,11 to “the day of the Lord” which Paul (your name sake) said comes with sudden destruction when they shall say, ‘Peace and safety.” 1Thess 5:2,3.

      I think the 1st trumpet after that earthquake will be economic collapse because if literally “all the green grass burnt up” we would be finished, because the grains are grasses. I think it’s a spiritual meaning explained in the King James Bible, “as the flower of the grass, so shall the rich man fade.” I don’t think they will be rich after that, and James 5:1-3 says they will “weep and howl” because they’ve based their lives and security on money and lost it…sad.

        Interesting indeed….I do not feel that the earthquake spoken of at verse 5 references a worldwide quake, like the 7th bowl quake; and our planet has seen increasingly large quakes since the indonesian and japanese quakes of 2004 and 2011.

        Interesting times.

        Blessings in Yeshua, Jesus Christ be upon you and yours.

      Paul, I agree with you that the earthquake of Rev 8:5 might not be worldwide the 7th bowl quake, but on the other hand, it’s a singular imagery, not like one of many, and it must get widespread attention to signal a time of impending judgment as suggested by the warning message in Rev 14:7 to “Fear God…the time of His judgment is come.”
      “Daniel” means God is my judge and He delivered Daniel in life or death situations. The book of Judges shows they were deliverers, but we will need to understand and cooperate with it.
      God is going to gather His people who are willing to go by His guidelines and who are willing to renew a covenant as Israel did, and He will make a “full end of all other nations,” Jeremiah 30:3,11.
