The Lord's Message
4. THE LORD’S MESSAGE
It became clear to me that the Book of Ezekiel is similar to the Book of Revelation in that it talks about this time of the end. At that time I was puzzled about what this coming unique end time disaster could possibly be. It has never been done before and will never be done again So I decided that I needed to start at the beginning of the Book of Ezekiel.
I had been home three days, and it was about mid-morning. I had just begun to read in Chapter 1, Verse 4, where it says Ezekiel looked and he saw coming out of the north a great cloud of fire enfolding itself—surrounded by brilliant light.
Right as I was thinking, “Can this be a description of a nuclear mushroom cloud?” there was a knock at the front door. I couldn’t get up and answer it, my leg was broken, and so I just hollered: “Come on in!”
An eighty-year-old friend of mine named Doc came in and sat down. He said, “I heard you were hurt, so I thought I’d stop by and check on you to see how you’re doing.”
I’m now convinced the Lord sent him, because after visiting a few minutes, I told him about Ezekiel 1:4, which I had just been reading when he knocked on the door. I asked Doc, “Do you think the Ezekiel could be talking about a mushroom cloud of a nuclear bomb?”
He began to tell me how he had been in the South Pacific on a ship in the Navy after World War II. They were conducting atomic bomb tests. He said, “I’ve seen those bombs go off.” The order was given, “You must tightly close your eyes and cover your eyes with your forearm.” Doc said that when the bomb detonated, every man on the ship saw the bones in his forearm through his tightly closed eyes. Ezekiel says that he saw an immense fire cloud, enfolding itself, surrounded by a brilliant light. Now that definitely qualifies as brilliant light.
It has since occurred to me that not many men like Doc are around, who have personally witnessed nuclear bomb tests. Those kind of men are few and far between. I’m thinking the odds are greater than at least one in ten thousand people who can say they were there and saw a nuclear bomb explode, yet at the exact same minute I am reading about it, I have a man like that knock on my front door and he comes in and explains to me what it is like. Truly the Lord sent him to me and my understanding grows.
Now I wanted to see if there were other scriptures that supported this scenario. I became determined to carefully review the Bible for further evidence in support of a nuclear holocaust. You will be astonished at the amount of scriptures I am going to reveal.
After all, I was held hostage by my broken body, and I had nowhere to go and nothing else to do but immerse myself in the scriptures. I became hungry for God’s word. Things I had read before now had new meaning. This was totally new for me.
NUCLEAR BOMBS DROPPED BY JETS
What Ezekiel, Chapter 1 clearly warns of, does come out of the north–a windstorm and an immense cloud with flashing lightning. With what seems to be the description of a mushroom cloud followed by these details; it is not difficult for one to perceive them to be jet aircraft.
Ezekiel says he sees what appears to be the likeness of four living creatures that come out of the midst of the fire cloud. One biblical version says they gleam like burnished bronze (an indication they are made of metal.) They each one have four faces, and each one has four wings, with two that touch one another. An observation of four modern jet aircraft flying in tight formation can appear to have their wings touching. They are often in groups of four together– even while moving straight forward without turning as a jet in flight.
Ezekiel said their legs are straight and they have feet like calves’ feet. I have heard the expression used about something being as crooked as a dog’s hind leg. I thought the dog’s hind leg is not particularly more crooked than other animal’s hind legs but Ezekiel felt it was important to tell us that these legs are straight possibly because he had never seen anything with straight legs before. A jet can have two tires at the end of the straight leg as landing gear. The silhouette would form two ovals giving the appearance like a divided hoof.
And Ezekiel never says that they are living creatures. They only have the likeness of living creatures. It is the same as a bowl of wax fruit sitting on a table that has a likeness to fruit, but you cannot eat it. In addition, he specifies that these creatures have four faces. The face of a man, the face of a lion, the face of an ox, and the face of an eagle. But there is no mention of four heads.
My first impulse was to think of a face as part of a head, but the word “face” has other meanings, as in face of the earth or face of a cliff. So how else can we define what your face is?
It is your single most conspicuous and unique and identifiable characteristic. It is the single most obvious and prominent feature that identifies you as unique from others. You may have had an experience like me of seeing someone from a distance who you thought was an old friend, but when you approached them an saw their face you then realized they weren’t who you thought.
1 – Man stands out from all other of God’s creation as most Intelligent.
2 – The Lion is known as the ultimate ferocious Predator.
3 – The ox is known for its Power.
4 – The eagle is the superior Master of the Sky.
Jet aircraft would appear to a man from ancient times to be Intelligent, Predatory, Powerful, and Masters of the Sky, all at the same time.
Try to understand what it would be like to live in the time of Ezekiel and to then be shown future events as they are taking place in today’s modern time. After you are shown these things you are then instructed to go and write down what you saw. Ezekiel was a rare man in his day in that few men were educated to read and write; but he was intelligent and educated. Any man from that time period would be hard pressed to do a better job of describing modern jets using the existing vocabulary of that time.
Should we find it difficult to believe that Ezekiel is describing four jets if this is a mushroom cloud of a nuclear bomb that has been delivered and dropped by the jets that are flying or coming out of the midst of the fire? Are not today’s enemy aircraft capable of flying low enough to be undetected by modern radar?
I see the evidence in Ezekiel’s writing that he witnessed these future events as they were happening. I suspect that time has no barriers for God. He can freely go forward into the future and back into the past. This would lend credibility to the concept of time travel. Insight of other scriptures also reveals details of modern warfare and weapons of mass destruction; an indication that the future has already taken place and it has been written down exactly like it will happen.
SIEGE WALL – BOMB SHELTER
In the section where it says to lie on your left side are instructions to put a barrier between yourself and the city: “Get yourself a brick, and build a siege wall.” Then, it says to set up an iron plate like steel-reinforced masonry wall which must be strategically placed between you and the metropolitan area. This design would effectively deflect the 400-mile-per-hour winds produced by a nuclear blast, protecting you as you lay on your left side behind the wall. Just like in modern building codes today, iron is used in reinforcement of masonry block and is necessary for withstanding seismic activity.
We’re instructed to gather enough food and other resources to survive 390 days, over one year, long enough for most of the radiation to dissipate and get to harvest time the next year.
Also, homes constructed with brick or concrete exteriors, especially those reinforced with iron, are more likely to remain standing than wood structures outside ground-zero areas. Today, there’s a misconception that a nuclear blast produces radiation that will make an area uninhabitable for thousands of years.
Yet we know from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, (the Japanese cities obliterated by nuclear blasts at the end of World War II) that such communities can be rebuilt over time. Those regions now have thriving populations.
SHOULD YOU BUILD A SIEGE WALL?
Build a siege wall if you’re near the outskirts of a major metropolitan area. But build it far enough away that the actual blast is unlikely to cause death. People living or staying overnight in major cities–at or very close to ground zero areas–would not survive the explosions even if they had built siege walls there. It is imperative that you avoid staying at the largest cities that are likely high profile target areas, particularly during the time that these important scriptures reveal.
Instead, you should live or work in mountain or countryside areas where there is a much greater chance of long-term survival. According to Ezekiel 7, all who survive and escape will be in the mountains, but they have baldness on their heads. A well known side effect of radiation exposure is a person’s hair all falls out. Supporting evidence continued to accumulate.
At the time of my accident, I had planned to build and lease out a new office building to a cable TV company. I had even signed a notice of intent to do that. But my injury and the recovery process made this impossible. Prayerfully, I opened my Bible seeking direction about this existing commitment. My eyes focused on Jeremiah 45:5, which asks “Should you then seek great things for yourself? Seek them not, for I will bring disaster on all people declares the Lord. But wherever you go, I will let you escape with your life.” The Lord certainly had my attention, just like I’m trying to get yours now.
This end-time disaster is coming, and it requires us to stop seeking great things for ourselves and change our plans to make way for the coming of the Lord. His plans supersede ours and Amos 3:7 says, “Surely the sovereign Lord God does nothing without first revealing His plans to His servants the prophets.”
Up to this point in life, I had been seeking to become wealthy and to have commercial properties full of tenants generating monthly cash flows for me and my family. I telephoned my client, and I told them what had happened to me. And we mutually agreed to indefinitely postpone our plans.
ANALYZE EVERY WORD OF SCRIPTURE
The verse I turned to upon immediately arriving home from the hospital with a shattered left arm and a shattered left leg, says: “As for you, lay down on your left side.” I readily perceived that the Lord was trying to tell me something. So I began to try and understand what it was talking about. It is preceded by instructions to get yourself a brick, build a siege wall, raise up a ramp, and then get yourself an iron plate and set it up–as an iron wall. I had little difficulty recognizing this as a form of a bomb shelter and more evidence supporting of a nuclear holocaust.
We’re told to strategically locate this between you and the city. Why is that? Chapter 5 of Ezekiel says: “One third of you will burn in the fire at the center of the city.” I thought to myself, “Nuclear bombs will target cities, not vast expanses of mountains or agricultural land or anywhere else.” Ezekiel informs us the people in the city will perish of famine and plague; another third will perish by the sword in the country. Apparently, the people in the country deal with a different problem than those in the city. Evidently, the plague that these scriptures foretell of has not spread out into the country at least not to a lethal degree, potentially because it is radiation sickness and that is not contagious. It will remain a problem for some time to come in the city.
The intensity of the famine is not as bad out in the country where the population is sparser, plus country people have farms and livestock.
I continued to think about that verse in Ezekiel Chapter 7 that says, “The survivors will escape and they’ll be on the mountains, with shame on their faces and baldness on their heads.” Not only does radiation cause hair loss, but another thing about being in the mountains–there is a generous supply of uncontaminated fresh water coming out of the mountain springs that plays an important role for the survivors. We are told at the end of Ezekiel Chapter 4 that both food and water will be scarce.
Further instructions are to set up a camp behind the iron re-enforced brick wall and get 390 days worth of stored food because food and water will be scarce. I was already familiar with scriptures in Revelations that say a “day’s wages for a quart of wheat.”
I began to see numerous similarities in Revelation and Ezekiel. At the end of Chapter 2 of Ezekiel, a hand reached out to him. In it was a scroll that had writing on both sides, and it was filled with words of lament, mourning and woe.
Revelation 5 talks about a right hand that has a scroll in it, with writing on both sides of it. That scroll is filled with words of tribulation. The Lord made copies of the same end time scroll and passed them out not only to Ezekiel 2 and Revelation 5, but also Isaiah 8, Jeremiah 36, and Zechariah 5.
THE FOUR JUDGMENTS
Ezekiel Chapter 14 tells us that the Lord has just four judgments—the sword, the famine, the plague and the wild beast. Those same four judgments are listed in Chapter 6 of Revelation, as the seals on that scroll opened. Out come the four horsemen called the riders of the apocalypse, and they are given power to kill by sword, famine, plague and wild beasts. By paying careful attention, you can also find the four judgments in Leviticus Chapter 26 — along with Verse 24, which refers to the seven years of coming tribulation. Wherever these four judgments are found all together, it is a sure way of easily recognizing that those passages of scripture are referring to the unique disaster at the time of the end. Leviticus 26:21-26 (New International Version)
21 “If you remain hostile toward me and refuse to listen to me, I will multiply your afflictions seven times over, as your sins deserve.” (The seven times is the coming seven years of Tribulation/World War III.)
22 “ I will send wild animals against you, and they will rob you of your children, destroy your cattle and make you so few in number that your roads will be deserted.”
23 “If in spite of these things you do not accept my correction but continue to be hostile toward me.”
24 “I myself will be hostile toward you and will afflict you for your sins seven times over.”
25 “And I will bring the sword upon you to avenge the breaking of the covenant. When you withdraw into your cities, I will send a plague among you, and you will be given into enemy hands.”
26 “ When I cut off your supply of bread, ten women will be able to bake your bread in one oven, and they will dole out the bread by weight. You will eat, but you will not be satisfied.”
And Deuteronomy Chapter 29:23 warns that the “whole land will be a burning wasteland” similar to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Chapter 32 goes on to say the fire has been kindled by the wrath of God, and Verse 20 says God will “see what their end will be.” This is a clear reference that the text pertains to this time of the end.
Deuteronomy 32:24 says, “ I will send a wasting famine against them, consuming pestilence and plague.” And once again, we discover the radiation dust described as follows: “…venom of vipers that glide in the dust.” To put it mildly, radiation dust bites people, leaving them covered with sores.
In Verse 35 the Lord proclaims that their “ foot will slip, their day of disaster is near, their doom rushes upon them.” Ultimately, the Lord shall judge his people, showing compassion to his servants.
Ezekiel 12:11: ” Say to them, I am a sign to you, as I have done, so it will be done to them!” Coincidentally, what happened to me was exactly that: my foot slipped, and I experienced a day of disaster unlike anything that had ever happened to me before. I hope and pray such a thing never happens to me again. As my left arm and leg were suddenly shattered–so it will be just as devastating to this country on the Day of the Lord. I have had a long and slow recovery process, and I am now in pretty good shape. America will also have a long and slow recovery period, and then she will emerge as the champion of the world!
The Bible tells us in no uncertain terms within the New Testament that at this time of the end, people will be busy “buying and selling; and building and planting; and marrying and giving in marriage when sudden destruction comes upon them.” This depicts a complacent society where people are caught up in a forward-moving fast paced economy. Instead we should be sober and vigilant–not caught up in the cares of this life.
Because the Lord has shown me these things, I’ve been alarmed every single year since 1999. Everything I’ve discovered has been confirmed by the hand of God, and points to this end-time disaster. It is because of His grace and mercy toward us, He is revealing his plans to those who have a heart to hear the truth. The truth will set you free and knowing what is coming is crucial to surviving. But you have to take action, for Isaiah 32:8 says the noble man makes noble plans and by noble deeds he will stand.
In Isaiah 33 the Lord makes it clear that the highways are deserted without travelers, as brave men cry aloud in the streets. People weep bitterly, the treaty is broken, and people despise the cities where no one is respected as the land mourns and wastes away. On the highway a semi-truck in front of me had a bumper sticker that said, “If this truck stops, America stops.” How true–the big trucks are keeping us supplied with everything, but a nuclear attack on major cities will take out the hub of the intersecting highway systems, and the rubble cannot be cleared away for the radiation lingering around has to cool down first. It could be months.
or 390 days before any supplies can get moving again.
RADIATION CONTAMINATED FARMLAND
“ The fields are ruined, the grounds dried up, the grains destroyed,” says Joel Chapter 1 as it describes what it will be like on the “Day of the Lord”. It warns us that the vine growers wail because their vines are dried up; the farmers despair for the wheat and barley because the harvest of the field is destroyed. The herds of cattle wander about, moaning for their pasture is taken away.
Jeremiah Chapter 8 gives a similar forecast about taking away their harvest, and the leaves on the trees will wither, (more evidence of the nuclear winter) and give them poisoned water to drink; adding that “ what I’ve given them will be taken away from them.” The Lord will allow all this to happen because we’ve sinned against him. The Bible tells us that this shall become evident to many people when they see that the summer ends and the harvest is passed, and yet they still aren’t saved. Even Jeremiah laments that “ since my people are crushed, I am crushed,” mourning and gripped in horror. He mourns partly because there’s no balm or ointment to heal sores, such as those caused from radiation.
Besides storing foods, we should also stockpile medical supplies of every kind. One that might be particularly useful is healing salves such as Neosporin® ointment to stop infections and treat seeping radiation sores. For the most part, a vast majority of Americans remain ignorant about radiation fallout– how to detect it and its symptoms.
Another useful ointment to have is the stuff that treats athlete’s foot. Many people may be walking and unable to change their socks or even take showers for days, resulting in that kind of burning and itching affliction. The scriptures tell us that for a lack of knowledge, people shall perish. Those traveling without Geiger counters risk entering into death zones of highly radioactive areas, exposing themselves to high radiation without knowing it. A noble plan would be to acquire a radiation detection
Revelation 6 tells us that a black horse emerges carrying a scale for carefully measuring every morsel, as men become willing to work an entire day for a quart of wheat as wages. Starving families shall struggle to eat, resigning themselves to work for just enough food just to stay alive because at that time nothing else will matter. Numerous scriptures foretell of extreme hunger even to the degree of cannibalism in some places. But you need not allow yourself to placed into that kind
of gruesome scenario.
WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN
In 2 Peter 2 we are told that the Lord condemned Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes AND He made them an example of “ what is going to happen” to the ungodly. The fire fell from the sky and burned them up. That is an example of thermal nuclear fire, and that is what is going to happen. It is an example of today’s modern cities that are going to burn.
2 Peter 3:6-7 notes that the world was deluged by water in Noah’s day, while the present heavens and earth are reserved for judgment by fire and the destruction of ungodly men.
In fact, as these scriptures describe it, the “ungodly” people are primarily the ones within our society who will face the brunt of the attack. Isaiah 3:10 tells us that righteous people will do well, enjoying the fruit of their deeds–deeds of preparations of stocking up.
Isaiah 32:8 says, “But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands.”
I want you to be a noble man and make your plans to deal with these difficult times so you can stand and persevere through them.
Isaiah 32:10 says, “In a little more than a year [the same 390 days of siege in Ez. 4:5] people who once felt secure will tremble, their grape harvests will fail and their fruits will not ripen.” This is what happens in June, the apples are small and green but the leaves wither from the nuclear winter the crop of apples is lost and the tree goes dormant until the next spring. A new crop is on the way.
Here again other scriptures support the reason Ezekiel 4:9 instructs you to prepare by storing up 390 days’ supply of food. Multiple scriptures appear to support the domino effect of a nuclear holocaust resulting in a harvest that is contaminated by fallout dust.
Isaiah 33:12: “People will get burned as if to lime.” Lime resembles white dust. What do you suppose could turn a human body into a pile of white dust? The million-degree heat of a nuclear blast will instantly incinerate people. Isaiah 33 continues by saying that sinners are terrified and trembling grips the godless. Who can dwell with the consuming fire? The answer is a righteous man who dwells in a mountain fortress. His food and water will be supplied. Remember that Ezekiel 7:16 said all who survive and escape will flee to the mountains. Nevada is considered the most mountainous state of the lower forty-eight.
The fallout dust that covers the environment will be rinsed off the upper elevations first and become concentrated in the water shed in the lower elevations making the water in lakes, creeks, rivers, and reservoirs poison to drink. Those living at higher elevations are better off than those at sea level. The surface waters may be contaminated, but underground water in domestic wells should remain potable. Because we have been told that the nation’s power grid is vulnerable to attack, consider this as a primary reason to have generators to power up pumps in wells.
THE UNIQUE DISASTER
I cannot emphasis the importance of these scriptures enough. In the New International Version, Ezekiel 5:9 proclaims that the Lord will bring his wrath. Because of “all your detestable idols, I will do to you what I’ve never done before and never will do again.” This disaster is the end-time
unique disaster of Ezekiel 7:5 [NASV].
This end-time disaster consists of these four punishments: famine, the sword, the plague and the wild beast. And as we’ve said, Chapter 5 reiterates that a third of the people will perish by famine and plague inside the city.
Another third will fall by the sword, killed outside, in the country–“ a third I will scatter to the winds and pursue with a drawn sword.” The third that survives is scattered and pursued by their attackers with swords. All who survive and escape will be in the mountains, moaning like doves of the valley, and their heads will be bald, (because radiation causes hair loss), and the wild beasts will bereave them of their children.
THE SAME TWO THIRDS
Zechariah 13:8 warns that two thirds will be struck down and perish; yet one-third will be left and survive. The Lord will bring them into the fire. “They’ll be refined, purified, and call on the name of the Lord.” These are the same two thirds and one third in Ezekiel 5:12. Many similarities, coupled with those I’ve already told you about, describe “the time of the end,” all confirming the same conclusion.
Those who will survive are the righteous–those who seek to purify themselves for the Lord. “One third will be left, and this third I will bring into the fire, and I will refine them like silver–test
them like gold. They will call on my name, and I will answer them. I will say they’re my people, and they’ll say, ‘The Lord is our God.’”
This is a refining fire, a purifying process, but these people will emerge from the fire without being incinerated or burned, and they’re going to survive. Furthermore, Isaiah 26:9 declares, “When the judgments of the Lord come upon the earth, people of the world will learn righteousness.” Without question, the Lord is going to teach us one way or another. Ultimately, as heartless as this might sound, you’re either going to learn, or you’re going to burn. The Lord and his messengers in the Bible make this clear. Thus, it’s up to us to follow his path and benefit from these teachings.
So, take heed when considering Jeremiah Chapter 7, it instructs you to reform your ways and your actions, and I will let you live in this place.
2 Peter 3 states that we should live holy, godly lives as we await the day of the Lord: “In speed, it’s coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire.” And as is the case with a thermal nuclear bomb, “the elements will melt in the fervent heat.” In keeping with his promise, you can look forward to a new heaven, a new earth, the home of the righteous. Just as Ezekiel 18 says, “It is the soul who sins that will die.” These scriptures refer to the coming new age – the 1000 years of peace on earth.
