And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. 20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great. Rev 16:17-21 (KJV)
It may not sound bad reading it – but remember this is going to be the LAST JUDGMENT. It’s going to be devastating. Try to imagine earthquakes so intense they devastate mountain chains, and islands are broken apart. There’s been massive earthquakes in this century alone that have moved Islands – this is talking about OBLITERATING them.
Mountains have faced devastating earthquakes before that have done minor damage – we’re talking destruction. This will be without a doubt the greatest earthquake in the history of the earth. The Richter scale cannot even begin to measure it.
Hailstones sixty to eighty pounds will generate massive damage – when objects that big fall from several thousand feet, it generates a release of energy when it hits the ground. If you hit a rock with a hammer, it makes a spark. Imagine an 80 pound ball of ice falling from cloud level. It should hit terminal velocity quickly, and troops on the ground trying to invade Jerusalem are going to be caught out in the open. Loss of life will be huge. And the Return of the Lord is nigh at this point – if you have not taken the mark at this point, and you see the armies surround Jerusalem, get saved – you’re about to run out of time permanently. At that time, failing to choose will be tantamount to choosing.
If you have taken the mark before this… your reckoning is about due. I’m sorry. Eternity is about to become very horrible for you.
