Old Testament Scriptures
And Jehovah GOD saw that the evil, wretchedness and wickedness of mankind was great in the earth, and that every imagination and everything framed in his mind, of the purpose and thoughts of his feelings, and heart was only evil, and his desires were wrong continually, every day. And it repented the LORD Jehovah that He had made man on the earth and it displeased, and grieved Him at His inner feelings and heart. And the LORD Jehovah said, I will destroy, erase, strike and rub out man whom I have created and prepared from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it causes me to repent and reconsider that I have made them. For yet in seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance and thing that I have made, will I destroy, erase, strike and rub out from off the face of the earth. The earth also was corrupt and marred before the exceeding great and mighty God, the Judge; and the land of the earth was full of injustice and unrighteous violence. And the exceeding great and mighty God, the Judge; directed His view, to view and think upon the land of the earth; and all flesh of mankind had corrupted and spoiled His course of life and the way to walk upon the land of the earth. And the exceeding great and mighty God, the Judge; said unto Noah; the process of the end of all flesh of mankind is come before my face, for the land of the earth is filled with false injustice and violence through them and behold, I will destroy, cast off, cause to perish and utterly waste them with the land of the earth. In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains, springs and wells of the great abyss of surging water in the deep broken up, and the windows and holes of heaven were opened. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a deluge and flood; neither shall there anymore be a deluge and flood to destroy the earth. Genesis 6:5-7, 11-13; 7:4, 11-12; & 9:11.
Then the LORD caused it to rain upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah an inflammable sulfurous brimstone and a burning, hot flaming fire from the LORD Jehovah out of the sky of heaven; And He overthrew those cities and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. And Abraham got up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD Jehovah: And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, a cloud of ashes, smoke and vapor of the land went up as the fume and smoke of a smelting furnace.
Genesis 19:24-25; & 19:27-28.
For the day of the LORD Jehovah of hosts shall be upon every one that is arrogant, proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be abased, humiliated and brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols He shall utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He rises to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the caverns and clefts of the rocks as a refuge, and onto the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He rises to shake mightily and terribly the earth. Isaiah 2:12-21.
In that day, they shall growl, mourn and roar against them like the roaring of the sea and if one look and consider attentively unto the land, behold, darkness, death, destruction, misery and sorrow of anguish; trouble and tribulation; and the illumination of the bright, clear day light is caused to be darkness, made dim and black, as to hide in the sky of the heaven, as dropping at the horizon. Isaiah 5:30.
Make a boisterous and wailing howl; for the day of the LORD Jehovah is near at hand; it shall come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Lo and behold, the day of the LORD Jehovah is coming, a burning and cruel anger; both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the country, the field, the wilderness and the land of the earth desolate: and He shall destroy the one accounted guilty as sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations, even of Orion, thereof shall not give their light: the sun rays from the east to the west will be dark and hidden from view and the bright moon will not glitter, illuminate or shine. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore, I will shake with a violent tremble, the air of heaven and the land of the earth shall move in a smooth wavelike motion, it will increase and decrease, out of her local and general place in the outburst of passionate anger, rage and wrath of the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One of Armies and in the day of His burning fierce rapid breathing passionate anger. Isaiah 13:6-13.
Behold, the LORD God Jehovah, the Self-Existent, Eternal One makes the land of the earth empty, and depopulates it, and annihilates it, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters by dashing in pieces and abroad the ones who dwell and settle down on the land of the earth, the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land of the earth shall be utterly emptied, and depopulated, and utterly plundered and spoiled: for the LORD God Jehovah, the Self-Existent, Eternal One hath spoken and properly arranged this word. The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, and the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured and consumed the land of the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate and guilty to be punished and to perish: therefore the inhabitants of the land of the earth are burned, and few men remain. Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. And it shall come to pass, that he who flees and escapes from the noise and sound of the fear, alarm and terror shall fall into the pit and snare as a catching for prey; and he who comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the spring trap and snare: for the windows from on high are open wide, and the foundations of the ground and land of the earth do shake. The land and field of the earth is utterly broken down into pieces, the ground and the land of the earth is clean dissolved, it is moved and wavered, the earth is shaken off course, it is moved exceedingly, falling down and shaken violently. The earth shall reel and waver, to and fro, as in wavering as being intoxicated and like a drunkard, and shall flee, waver and be tossing like a hammock, be removed like a cottage; and the transgression and rebellion and sin, thereof shall be heavy and a severe burden upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD Jehovah, the Self-Existent, Eternal One, shall visit to punish the mass of those organized for war and the host of the high and haughty ones that are in a lofty and elevated place, and the kings of the earth upon the land of the earth. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, a dungeon and prison, and shall be shut up and fastened in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited for punishment. Then the moon shall be confounded and brought to confusion and the heat of the sun ashamed, pale and delayed, when the LORD Jehovah, the Self-Existent, Eternal One, of the Hosts of Armies shall take council to ascend to the throne and begin His royal reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients in splendor, glory and honor. Isaiah 24:1-6 & 17-23.
Thou shall be visited by the Lord Jehovah of Hosts with a peal of thunder, with earthquake and vibration, with fierceness, shaking and vapor; and great noise, with whirlwind, storm and tempest and the flash of bright, flaming, devouring, burning fire. Isaiah 29:6.
For lo, I begin to bring evil and spoil on the guarded city which is called by name and should ye be completely unpunished; ye shall be unpunished, for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants, those who settle down to dwell on the land of the earth and of the world, saith the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One of the Hosts of Armies. Therefore, speak an inspiration of prophesy as a matter of cause and against them all these words and say, the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One will mightily roar from on high and call aloud with His voice from His sacred and holy abode and habitation; He shall give an acclamation and shout as they that tread and walk though to ambush the inhabitants and dwellers upon the land of the earth. A noise and an uproar shall come even to the ends of the land of the earth, for the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One has a controversy and a strife with the nations of the Gentile people, the foreign heathen; He will judge and pass sentence, vibrate and punish all flesh of mankind, He will give them that are morally wrong, wicked and ungodly, to the cutting instrument of a sword, declares by affirmation, the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One. Thus says the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One of the Host of Armies, Behold evil and wretchedness shall go forth from the nations of the Gentiles, to the nations of the Gentiles, a great tempest of a whirlwind, and shall be raised up, and stirred up, and awaken from the coasts, and boarders of the earth of the world. And the slain of the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One shall be at that day, from one end of the land of the earth, even unto the other end of the land of the earth, they shall not be lamented or mourn, nor in any wise be buried, they shall be dung upon the surface of the soil and ground of the earth.
The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying: son of a human being, speak by inspiration in a prediction and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD, Jehovah; Howl ye with a boisterous wailing tone, Woe and grief worth the day, For the day is near, even the day of the LORD Jehovah: is near, a day of clouds that cover the sky; a time of the nations of the Gentiles; the heathen. Ezekiel 30:1-3.
Therefore, son of a human being: speak an inspired prophesy and say unto Gog, the northern nation, Thus says, the Lord, the Only God; In that day, when my people of Israel dwell in a quiet, secure and feeling of safety, Will you not know and be ascertain by seeing it? And thou shall come from the northern border, you and many people as a unit of troops, with all of them riding and being dispatched upon horses, a great assembly and multitude, an abundant and a mighty army of fierce and strength. And thou shall come up and ascend as a trap against my people of Israel, as a thunder cloud covering the sky to cover and overwhelm the land. It shall be in the latter and future days and I will bring thee against my land, that the foreign heathen, Gentile people may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee O’ Gog, the northern nation, before their eyes. Thus says the Lord, the Only God, Art thou he of whom I have spoken in ancient time by my servants, the inspired men and prophets of Israel which spoke by inspiration in those days, many years that I would bring thee against them? And it shall come to pass at the same time, when Gog, the northern nation, will come against the land of Israel saith the Lord, the Only God, that my anger and hot displeasure, fury and rage will come up into my face. For in my jealousy and zeal, in the burning, hot flaming fire of my outburst of passionate anger, rage and wrath, have I spoken: For certain, in that day, there shall be a great and insolent shaking and uproar, a vibration and quaking in the land of Israel. So that the fishes of the sea and the birds of the air of heaven and the living creatures of the field and all reptiles, and any other rapid moving animals that creep by moving upon the soil of the earth and all human beings, that are upon the face of the soil of the earth, will shake at my presence, and the mountains and range of hills shall be broken into pieces, and the wall of protection will fall to the ground. And I will call out for a cutting instrument of a sword against all and throughout all my mountain range of hills and country, Says the Lord, the Only God: every man’s cutting instrument of a sword will be against his brother and kinsman. And I will judge for a sentence to vindicate and punish against him, with a plague and pestilence, with a substance like blood; and I will rain upon him and upon his army and crowd of troops, upon many people as a collective unit, that are with him, an over flowing gush, and conquering overflowing rain, and a great weight of a peal of hail stones, of a hot, burning, fiery, flaming fire and an inflammable, sulfur resin of brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many a foreign, heathen, Gentile people and you will know by ascertain by seeing, that I am the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One. Ezekiel 38:14-23.
Sanctify ye a fast, to call out a solemn assembly to a meeting, to gather the elders and all the inhabitants, who settle and dwell on the land of the earth, into the house of the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One, your great and mighty God, the Judge; cry and shriek unto the Lord Jehovah; Oh, oh, Alas, for the day of the Lord Jehovah, the Self-Existent and Eternal One is near at hand: as a destruction of violence and ravage of wasting, from the Almighty shall it come. Joel 1:14-15.
Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble with violent emotion and stand in awe: for the day of the LORD Jehovah cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and misery, of gloominess and misfortune, a day of clouds and lowering of the dark thick sky, as the day dawns upon the mountains: a great people, numerous and strong; there hath not been anything like this, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A hot, fiery, flame devours and consumes them; and behind them a spearing flame is set on a flaming blaze: the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate, devastation and wasted wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape it. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march everyone on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk everyone in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake and quiver with a violent rage, shake and tremble before them; the air of the heavens shall tremble and move: the sun rays in the arch of the sky, from the east, to the west and the moon shall be an ashy dark color; and the stars shall withdraw and remove their clear brilliant shining: And the LORD shall thunder forth His voice before His army: for His encampment is very exceeding great: for He is mighty and strong to execute His word: for the day of the LORD Jehovah is very great and very terrible, to be feared; and who can endure and bear it? Joel 2:1-11.
And I will show a token, a sign and wonders in the air of the heavens, in the visible arch of the sky, where the clouds move; and in the field, in the ground, in the wilderness and throughout all the land of the earth; it will have the appearance of blood along with a burning, hot, flaming fire; and columns and pillars of clouds, of angry dust, smoke and vapor. The brilliant sunrays in the arch of the sky, from the rising of the sun in the east, to the setting of the sun westward will be changed and turned over to the darkness of night and the moon will take on the appearance of blood, before the great and notable, the fearful, the terrible and dreadful day of the LORD Jehovah, the self-Existing, the Eternal One comes. Joel 2:30-31
Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD Jehovah is near at hand, in the valley of decision and destruction. The arch of the sunrays from the rising in the east, to the setting in the west and the moon shall be ashy dark and the gazing of the stars shall withdraw their bright shining. The LORD Jehovah also shall mightily roar and rumble out of Zion; and give forth His voice from Jerusalem; and the air of the heavens and the field, the country, the wilderness and the land of the earth shall shake and tremble: but the LORD Jehovah will be the shelter of hope of His people and the strength and fortress of the children of Israel. So shall ye know that I am the LORD your God dwelling in Zion, my holy mountain: then shall Jerusalem be holy, and there shall no strangers pass through her any more. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of the LORD, and shall water the valley of Shittim. Egypt shall be desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall dwell forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation. For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the LORD dwelleth in Zion. Joel 3:9-21.
Alas, O’ Woe unto you that desire and wish to know the day of the LORD! To what purpose and to what end is it for you? The day of the LORD Jehovah is darkness and obscurity and not bright nor light. As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. Shall not the day of the LORD Jehovah be darkness and not one of illumination, bright and clear? Even very dark and dusky; with no brightness or clear shinning in it? Amos 5:18-20.
And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord Jehovah, that I will cause the sun rays in the arch of the sky, from the rising of the sun in the east to the setting in the west, to go down at noon, midday and become a dual, double light and I will withhold the light and cause darkness on the earth in the clear, bright, illumination of the day. Amos 8:9.
Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests. And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD's sacrifice that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel. In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and deceit. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and a howling from the second, and a great crashing from the hills. Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off. And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their preserved things: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil. Therefore their goods shall become booty and their houses desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof. The great day of the LORD Jehovah is near, it is near, and is coming exceeding quickly and swiftly, even the voice of the day of the LORD Jehovah: the mighty man shall cry in a shrill of tone, there with discontent and great bitterness. That day, is a day of anger, rage and wrath, a day of adversity, affliction, anguish, distress, tribulation and trouble; a day of wastefulness, devastation and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick black darkness covering the sky; A day of the trumpet and giving a clear sound, an alarm against the fenced and fortified cities, and against the high towers and battlements. And I will bring distress upon human beings that they shall walk like a blind person, because they have sinned against the LORD Jehovah: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and the flesh of their bodies as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD Jehovah’s outburst of anger, rage and wrath; but the whole land shall be burned, devoured and consumed by the hot fiery flame of His jealousy: for He shall make a speedy and complete destruction and riddance of all the inhabitants of the land. Zephaniah 1:7-18.
Thus said the Lord Jehovah of the Hosts of Armies; Yet once in a little while, very soon, I will shake the air of the heavens and the country, the ground, the wilderness, the field and the land of the earth and the sea, the dry and the desert land. Haggai 2:6.
Behold, the day of the LORD Jehovah comes, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all heathen, Gentile nations against Jerusalem to battle and war; and the city shall be captured, occupied and taken, and the houses rifled, plundered and spoiled; and the women will be defiled and ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity and exile, and the residue and remainder of the people shall not be cut off or consumed, nor destroyed from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle. And His feet shall stand in that day, upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall be divided, cleave and split in the middle, into two parts, toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the illumination of the day light, shall not be clear with brightness, nor settled dark: But it shall be one unique day, which shall be known to the LORD Jehovah, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at dusk of the evening time, there will be illumination of light. And it shall be in that day, that living, running spring water, shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and His name one. All the land shall be turned as a plain, as the Arabah desert from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses, where the grapes are crushed. And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more curse or physical destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite and slay all the people, that have assembled and fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away and melt, while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away and melt in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away and melt in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbor and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor. And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about, shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance. And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague. And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. And it shall be that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; that shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD's house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of Hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and see therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of Hosts. Zechariah 14:1-21.
For, behold, the day shall come, it will burn as a furnace, a fire pot and an oven; and all the arrogant and proud, yes all that do wickedly, will be as stubble: and the day that comes, shall burn and set them ablaze with a flaming fire, saith the Lord Jehovah of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root or branch. Malachi 4:1.
