What God’s Tectonic Plates Send Up Comes Back Down!

Part 1


Please consider the diagram and narrative I put up on Archive Prophecy Update Number 321, December 9, 2011.  I had taught it for many years at DMBC prior to issuing it on our web site.  The exacting numbers are not absolutely specific, and are not intended to be iron clad, but I have long considered they will not be too far off in accuracy.  I have waited for many years for the pre-conditions to begin to form before Israel is attacked by the Antichrist into what see on Diagram 321.  These pre-conditions are now in place, and I am confident the initial attack will occur after Obama leaves office,          BUT I DO NOT KNOW PRECISELY WHEN SEAL 6 WILL OPEN!  I do know Seals 1 through 5 have NOW opened as the “Beginning of Sorrows,” and Seal 6 begins the Tribulation Period.  When it does finally open, the tectonic chaos and initial attack of Antichrist will occur in the same time frame.

Revelation 8:1-6 – And when he had opened THE SEVENTH SEAL, THERE WAS SILENCE IN HEAVEN ABOUT THE SPACE OF HALF AN HOUR.  [2] And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. [3] And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. [4] And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. [5] And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. [6] And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

The first trumpet judgment on mankind comes up from beneath the earth’s land interior into its atmosphere, and then comes down on the earth. (See Birth Pang 3).

Update of First Book “Tectonic Chaos” (1977)

Tectonic Chaos – Chapter 5 – Hail and Fire Mingled with Blood

Please take a look in our Birth Pang Figures found in our Archives for the several Figures referenced in this and other chapters in this updated 1977 book.  Figure 3 shows the world’s tectonic plates.  Figures 4 to 8 also apply to this chapter.

Revelation 8:7 – The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

Revelation 8:7 does not mix frozen hailstones with fire.  It mixes large volcanic bombs (hail) and fiery blood-red lava.  I believe what John witnessed was a worldwide pattern of volcanic eruptions around the edges of the tectonic plates.  This verse is a perfect description of a chain of volcanic eruptions.  As the volcanic bombs (hail) are thrown great distances from the caldera vents, fires are started, and as the fiery lava moves across the surface of the earth it burns up everything in its path.  I challenge you to view films of an actual eruption and then not believe this is what John saw in his vision from God.  (See Archives – Birth Pang 3)

Number of Worldwide Earthquakes (19 Year Cycles)

Greater Than 1 on the Richter Scale

Reported by U.S. Geological Survey 1948 to 2005

This is an update of the earthquake statistics I began to keep some 27 years ago, updating them every year, and presenting them as I conducted lectures across the earth. You will find them in all my books, and may view them by clicking on “Birth Pang” on Our Menu, and then on “Birth Pang Figures.”

What follows is Prophecy Update Number 18, issued in 2001, and from which you may read about these statistics.


Before the sons of God were to appear in glorious manifestation on the millennial earth, there was to be a groaning of God’s creation. The earth was to travail like a woman experiencing birth pangs. We were advised of this by Paul in verses 19 and 22 of the eighth chapter of Romans, where he wrote: “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God,” and “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and trvaileth in pain together until now.” The birth pangs were occasionally felt during the time of Paul’s writings, but Matthew indicated they would increase noticeably just before Christ’s coming for his saints in verses 7b and 8 of the twentieth-fourth chapter of his gospel, where he wrote: “And there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers (many different) places. All these are the beginning of sorrows (odin).” The word “odin” is used for “sorrows” by Matthew, and the same root word for “odin” is used by Paul in Romans 8:22 to describe the “travail” of God’s creation. You may use any Greek lexicon of your choice, and you will find that the basic meaning of the word “odin” refers to the birth pangs experienced by a woman in the travail of delivering a child. Therefore, when the Lord said “All these,” in verse 8, he was referring specifically to the birth pangs that would be suffered, in a period of time just before his coming, because of famines, pestilence, and earthquakes. He indicated that all three of these phenomena would increase steadily like a woman’s birth pangs, ever increasing in this period labeled as “the beginning of sorrows.” Down through the centuries earthquakes, famine, and pestilence have been used repeatedly to teach that the coming of Jesus was at hand. However, they have never followed the “odin” pattern of a woman’s birth pangs during recorded history, that is, until now. In order for this prophecy of Christ to be fulfilled these phenomena had to behave like a woman’s birth pains. When true labor pangs begin, they become greater and greater in frequency and intensity with the passage of time. Earthquake surges have come and gone in short duration patterns since this prophecy was uttered, but now, for the first time since it was given, they are steadily following the pattern of “odin.” The same basic pattern is now being followed in famine, pestilence, and earthquakes, just as Jesus indicated. In this update we will show the “odin” pattern in earthquakes. In future updates we will cover pestilence (loimos) and famine, Lord willing. The statistics which will follow were first extracted from the Earthquake Data File Summary, U. S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Environmental Data Service, Boulder, Colorado, which was issued in May of 1976. I have received updates to the original report from the same source every year since 1977. While the intensity of the earthquakes is similar to the Richter scale, with which most people are familiar, they are not exactly the same, but rather than launch out into a technical discussion of the difference, let me simply state that, for comparative purposes, they are the same. They come from Table 2 – Summary of data file by year by magnitude and depth. As you read the numbers which follow in the narrative, remember they are referring to earthquakes reported across the earth greater than one in intensity on the Richter scale. Before Israel officially became a nation in May of 1948, there were never more than 6,000 earthquakes greater than one reported in any 19 year period. I chose a 19 year cycle, because that is the number of years which passed between the time that Israel became a nation (1948), and the time she finally took back Old Jerusalem and her Temple

What God’s Tectonic Plates Send Up comes back Down!

Part 2


Revelation 8:1-6 – And when he had opened THE SEVENTH SEAL, THERE WAS SILENCE IN HEAVEN ABOUT THE SPACE OF HALF AN HOUR.  [2] And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. [3] And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. [4] And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand. [5] And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. [6] And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.


April 21, 2010


The same God who made the ocean and sea floors of the world also happens to control them!  God used his own creation to destroy man when man had become as corrupt in the days of Noah as we are today, leaving a remnant of eight humans.

Genesis 6:9,11-13 – These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.  [11] The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. [12] And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. [13] And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I WILL DESTROY THEM WITH THE EARTH.

Genesis 7:11 – 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 of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

When man has again reached the degree of corruption in Noah’s day, God will once again use his creation to destroy sinful man, not with water, but will the fire of his wrath in the form of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions affecting his earth and his heavens, and will also use his creations in the universe as well.  The vials of wrath follow the catching out of the saved.

Luke 17:26.27 – And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. [27] They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, UNTIL THE DAY that Noe ENTERED into the ark, and the flood came, AND DESTROYED THEM ALL.


I Thessalonians 5:9 – For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Revelation 11:15,18 – And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. [18] And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; AND SHOULDEST DESTROY THEM WHICH DESTROY THE EARTH.

There will be fantastic numbers of seamounts rising from the oceans and seas along the tectonic plate boundaries as exposed active volcanoes during the 3 and ½ years prior to Armageddon.





From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A seamount is a mountain rising from the ocean seafloor that does not reach to the water’s surface (sea level), and thus is not an island. These are typically formed from extinct volcanoes, that rise abruptly and are usually found rising from a seafloor of 1,000–4,000 metres depth. They are defined by oceanographers as independent features that rise to at least 1,000 metres above the seafloor. The peaks are often found hundreds to thousands of metres below the surface, and are therefore considered to be within the deep sea. An estimated 30,000 seamounts occur across the globe, with only a few having been studied. However, some seamounts are also unusual. For example, while the summits of seamounts are normally hundreds of metres below sea level, the Bowie Seamount rises from a depth of about 3,000 metres to within 24 metres of the sea surface.

Begin Chapter 6 from “Birth Pangs from the Bottomless Pit,” which I wrote in 1979.

Revelation 8:7-9 – The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. [8] And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; [9] And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

In the previous chapter a lengthy discourse of verse seven was given; a discourse portraying the terrible effects of volcanic spillage on dry land masses. I have attempted to build a case that God will move the massive tectonic plates of figure 3 to pro­duce unbelievable dry land eruptions. But the shifting of the plates would most assuredly not only affect the land, for most of these great cracks exist on the world’s ocean and sea floors. John’s eyes had been fixed on the horrifying volcanic burning of the earth’s greenery (verse seven), but as he watched the land scene the underwater volcanic activity remained hidden from his view. It is therefore only natural that the dry land events were reported before the water events.In order to correctly interpret verse eight, one must under­stand what the expression “as it were” means, and how it is used in relation to the subject and verb of the middle section of this verse. Many commentaries identify the great burning mountain as a meteorite that falls into the sea from heaven, but I will attempt to prove that this is not the case.

The expression “as it were” is one very small Greek word. That word is ‘hos.’ Hos is a particle having a very wide variety of uses in the New Testament. At times it applies to the subject, at other times it applies to the verbal action, and sometimes it applies to both. Hos can be translated as “what looked like,” “it was as though,” “what seemed to be,” “it was as if,” “as it were,” etc.

The verbal action “was cast” Is a single Greek verb, ‘eblethe,’ which expresses punctiliar action in past time and, as such, can be translated “had been cast.”

John used hos in John 7:10 to describe the action performed by the subject:

But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

Paul in 1 Corinthians 4:9 used hos to refer to a verbal action affecting the subjects:

For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

Now considering the usage of hos and eblethe in Revelation 8:8, let us carefully examine what John saw and how he reported it:

And the second angel sounded, and as it were [hos] a great moun­tion burning with fire was cast [eblethe] into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood.

Hos (as it were) refers to both the subject (great burning mountain) and the verbal action eblethe (had been cast) that began at some point in time before John actually saw the sub­ject. John’s attention had been fixed on a horrible scene of fiery objects coming down upon the dry land masses of the world, destroying all the green grass and one-third of the trees. Suddenly the second trumpet shifted his eyes to the sea, and he beheld what looked like a great mountain on fire in the midst of the sea. John did not know where it came from, so he used the expression (hos) to tell us it was as if it had been cast into the sea. John did not see it cast into the sea, because the tense of the verb eblethe indicates the action that caused it to be in the midst of the sea occurred before John actually saw it there. What John saw is what you see in figure 5. The mountain had been cast into the sea from beneath, not from above as many commentaries assume. Not all commentaries take the falling meteor position. Among one of the more reputable that does not is the Expositor’s Greek Testament Volume five of this highly esteemed work provides the following information concerning Revelation 8:8 and the rest of the book of Revelation:

Volcanic phenomena… in the Egean archipelago are in the background of this description, and of others throughout the book; features such a the disturbance of islands and the mainland, show­ers of stones, earthquakes, the sun obscured by a black mist of ashes, and the moon reddened by volcanic dust, were the natural conse­quences of eruption in some submarine volcano, and Thera—adjoin­ing Patmos—was in a state of more or less severe eruption during the first century. All this suggested the hideous colors in which the final catastrophe was painted by the imagination of pious contem­poraries. In the eruption of 1573, the sea round Thera was tinted for twenty miles round, and even when the submarine volcano is quies­cent, “the sea in the immediate vicinity of the cone is of a brilliant orange color, from the action of oxide of iron.” In 1707 a large rock suddenly appeared in the sea, during the eruption, and owing to noxious vapors ‘all fish in the harbor died.’

It is difficult to prove conclusively the case for volcanic erup­tions by linguistics alone, but the effects produced in the form of blood-red water that destroys aquatic life is a natural conse­quence of volcanic eruptions. There have been thousands of meteorites that have fallen into man’s water supplies for many years and yet not one case of poisoning has ever been validated. Meteors are not poisonous nor do they turn water a continuing red.

Please do not let the “orange” color mentioned in the quote from the Expositor’s Greek testament mislead you. You will not find the color “orange” in the entire Bible. One of the reasons the word “blood” appears so often in Revelation is that it figu­ratively covers a wide range of blood shades from orange to red­dish black. Ask any hematologist about the tremendous change in blood color found in various parts of the human anatomy.

The surface of Mars has a very high hematite iron content that gives it its red color and its nickname as the “Red Planet.”  It is rust produced from hematite oxidation, and is found all over Mars.  It forms whenever iron is oxidized by being exposed to air.

Basaltic magma has the highest iron content of the three types of volcanic eruptions.

There are three types of magma that burst onto the earth’s surface as blood-red lava, and basaltic magma has the highest iron content of the three, with virtually all oceanic eruptions being of the basaltic variety. If a piece of iron is left long enough in a glass of water it will turn the water a rusty red by oxida­tion If the water is heated the oxidation (rusting) will be accelerated. As the basaltic material makes contact with the ocean seawater its temperature is often in excess of six hundred degrees centigrade, and this produces fantastically accelerated oxidation of its iron content. In virtually all oceanic eruptions a blood-red shield is formed, and this shield is carried away from the source many miles by the currents of the sea. When coupled with the other chemical reactions associated with maritime volcanic eruptions, it acts like a smothering aerobic blanket on aquatic life as it spreads across the seas and oceans of the world.

God, who created all things and will use them to fulfill His prophecies, has also created life forms in the sea that can pro­duce dreadful effects. There are certain microscopic organisms that exist in the sea that can reproduce at fantastic rates. Under certain conditions these oceanic organisms have repro­duced to exhibit over sixty million in a single quart of seawater. They are deadly only under certain conditions which I shall describe later. As long as these organisms remain in a certain environmental temperature range there is no problem. They will remain absolutely harmless. In fact, if the organism is car­ried into a cold water zone by the currents of the ocean, God has so designed it that a protective crust forms around it, and the shield remains until it is carried back into a favorable temper­ature environment. But there is one thing that must never be performed on this organism: never heat the water. For if you heat the water above the organism’s normal temperature envi­ronment, the following quote from a standard biological text describes what will happen:

Under certain conditions it reproduces at a fantastic rate; sixty million have been counted in a single quart of seawater. The organ­ism tends to utilize the dissolved oxygen at a rate which creates an anaerobic condition. Thus aerobic organisms, such as fish, die. It also releases an airborne “poison gas” which irritates the human res­piratory tract and may cause coughing, sneezing and even shortness of breath.

During the red tide off the coast of Florida in 1952 and again in 1954 enormous numbers of fish died, and the shore was littered for miles with stinking fish.

Another dinoflagellate, Gonyauiox, also causes waters to appear a rusty red at times becaue of its great numbers. Gonyaulax catenel­la is known to have been the cause of disastrous poisoning in man. Several kinds of shellfish along the Pacific coast feed on them, thus making the shellfish poisonous for human consumption. In 1941 there were 346 cases of poisoning with 24 deaths. Since 1941 state laws forbid the gathering of shellfish during the season of the red waters. Experiments have shown the toxin (an alkaloid) to be about ten times as potent as strychnine, which is used for poisoning mice.

When God shifts the great tectonic plates, all the cracks on the ocean floors shown in figure 3 will open to produce long chains of oceanic eruptions as pictured in figure 5. As the magma begins to heat the oceans and seas of the world, many varieties of dinoflagellate will begin to reproduce at fantastic rates. As the heating spreads, the dinoflagellate will spread, both by formation and transportation by the currents of oceans and seas of the world. The sea will be turned red by the oxida­tion and organism secretions, both creations of God. The same God, who created the process of oxidation and all organisms, has also created the mechanism to slowly spread the blood-red shroud of poison across the oceans and seas of the world—the currents of the “seven seas” shown in figure 5A. By the time the last drop of the second vial has been poured out, all aquatic life in the oceans and seas will have been destroyed by this shield of death carried by the currents that daily move life through them.

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood: and the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed  (Revelation 8:8,9).

And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea  (Revelation 16:3).

The great red shield of death is formed and spreads across one-third of the sea as the trumpet sounds. The second trumpet begins the event and the second vial closes it. By the time the last drop of the vial has fallen, the ocean current spread of both organic and inorganic takers of life will have rendered the sea to belike the blood of a dead man. A dead man’s blood will not support life. The trumpets and vials do not occur separately from one another in a chronological sense. The first trumpet announces the beginning of event one, and the last drop of the first vial closes it. This sequence is true throughout all seven trumpets and vials.

The preceding chapters have continually added to the premise that God will destroy sinful mankind with the earth. This chapter, and those which follow, will continue to build upon that premise. The major contention of this premise is that God will move the massive tectonic plates shown in figure 3 approximately one to two feet during the last three and one-half years of the Tribulation Period. It is this destroying with the earth that will create the horrifying scenes described in Isaiah 29:6 and Luke 21:25.

Isaiah 29:6 – Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

Luke 21:25 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring,

 In Luke 21:25 the word translated wave is saiou, which means a particular type of wave. It means a wave that breaks on the shoreline, a wave of the surf. The nations of the world will be in great perplexity because of the roaring sound of the sea and surf. It is this phenomenon of sea and surf that will destroy one-third of the world’s shipping.

The claim has been made that unbelievably violent earth­quake and volcanic activity will be occurring along the area indicated by dashed lines of figure 3 during the last half of the Tribulation Period. Please note that most of these great cracks in the earth’s crust lie on the ocean and sea floors of the world. If I am correct about the earthquake and volcanic activity along these cracks, then I am positive that what I am about to describe will definitely occur.

There are many types of waves that exist on the ocean sur­face. The most common being those induced by the winds and tides of the earth. But the most horrifying of all waves that pound the shorelines of the world is not produced by wind or tide; it is the unbelievable tsunami produced by earthquake and volcanic eruption on the seafloor.

Tsunamis are not “tidal waves. They are caused by undersea earthquakes or volcanoes and have killed millions of people down through the ages. Tsunami is the Japanese word for “storm wave.” The Alaska earthquake of 1964 produced the tsunami wave pattern shown in figure 6. As you can observe from the figure, it only took the tsunami four hours to move from the epicenter to Hawaii. Tsunami travel as fast as some jet aircraft. Tsunami can now be predicted so that appalling death tolls of yesteryear can be avoided. A network of seismic warning stations now functions across the Pacific Ocean to give early warning of an approaching tsunami.

As you can observe on the lower half of figure 6, a tsunami is generated when an undersea earthquake or volcanic eruption causes a sudden downward movement of an earth block. The downward displacement of water above the block produces not a surface wave, but rather a wave which moves horizontally outward through the water from the bottom to the top.

Tsunami cross the ocean as long low waves which seagoing vessels may not even notice but, as you may observe in figure 7, when the tsunami approaches the shoreline the energy of the wave is con­fined in shallower and shallower water. Tsunamis have been known to rise to heights in excess of two hundred fifty feet. The increase in tsunami occurrences, during the past 190 years, is made evident in figure 8. When a tsunami crashes against a coastline it destroys everything in its path, often up to half a mile inland.

Shipping on the open sea is virtually unaffected by a tsunami, but woe unto the ship that is caught in port. There is not a ship built which can withstand the force of a full blown tsunami as it roars into port. In one day the old city of Lisbon and all the ships in port were destroyed by a wall of water that washed half a mile inland.

During the last three and one-half years of the Tribulation Period most of the coastal cities of the world and the ships in port will be completely destroyed by tsunami after tsunami. This is what will produce much of the distress and perplexity among the nations of the world. Now, how does all this fit in with Revelation 8:9 regarding John’s statement: “and the third part of the ships were destroyed?”

At any given time approximately two-thirds of the world’s shipping is “under way” on the open sea, and one-third is in port or dry dock. The two-thirds on the open sea will be spared, and the one-third in port will be destroyed by tsunami during the sounding of the second trumpet.

The following Scriptures leave little doubt that God has con­trol of the sea and the destructive forces of its waves. Those who “do business in great waters” will lose one-third of their busi­ness on the sounding of the second trump.

Psalm 89.9 – Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them

Isaiah 51:15 – But I am the Lord thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The Lord of hosts is his name.

Psalm 107:23-25 – They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; [24] These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep. [25] For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

The earth is God’s creation and all the things thereof. God does not need man’s weaponry or technology to fulfill His prophecies. God has already made all the elements necessary to destroy man, and He has molded them into forms, shapes, com­pounds and processes capable of fulfilling His revelation of end-time events. I know that a great war will occur. Many men will die in that war. Bullets and other weaponry will kill many of them; but that will be only a few compared to the earthquake, fire and brimstone toll exacted by the force of Almighty God upon sinful mankind. For too long biblical expositors have been concentrating on a single tree (man’s weaponry and technology) as the fulfillment of Revelation prophecies. In so doing, they have overlooked the forest of God’s creation, the earth’s natural destructive forces.

Man will not destroy himself in a nuclear holocaust of his own making. If you desire to be frightened by such a possibili­ty, be my guest and join the crowd. I do not fear the armies with thermonuclear arsenals. May I remind you whom you should fear with this closing passage of Scripture.

Luke 12:4,5 – And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. [5] But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

We now live in the days of Seal 5 in the “beginning of sorrows” waiting for Seal 6 to begin the Tribulation period.  I believe Seal 6 will open at some point in time after President Obama is no longer President, and that it represents a preview of the Tribulation Period from Seal 6 to Vial 7 in chronological order. Seal 6 gives a general version of the entire Tribulation Period.  What follows Seal 6 is a specific description of each individual seal, trumpet, or vial event through Vial 7.  I have taught this for almost 40 years.  I included it the Chapter 11 of my second book, “Tectonic Triad.”  It has followed the pattern I indicated, and I am now refining it this current series because I now understand it better than I did 40 years ago.

Tectonic Chaos – Chapter 12 – A Poisonous Visitor

Tectonic Chaos was written in 1976 and published in 1978

The Figures referred to in this chapter are located under “Birth Pangs” on our web site menu, and may be viewed by clicking on “Birth Pang Archive Figures” after clicking on “Birth Pangs.”

Revelation 8:10,11 – And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; [11] And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

In Revelation 8:7-9, John has viewed the land and sea events described previously in Chapters 2, 4, 5, and 6.  Now his view is shifted upward where he observes a great star falling from heaven.  The word used for star is “aster.”  It can mean any one of three different things.  It can be a navigational star in the heavens such as Polaris, the North Star – or a “shooting” star, better known as a meteor – or a comet.  Sometimes meteors and comets are lumped together as “asteroids” by various types of commentators, but there is a considerable difference between a meteor and a comet.   Since all the fixed stars in our universe (except for the sun) are millions to billions of light years from our planet and, as such, eliminate themselves from consideration as candidates for John’s Wormwood, this leaves us with only two candidates – a meteor or a comet.  In order to select between these two it is necessary to carefully examine John’s description of the characteristics of Wormwood.

Using John’s description, the following statements concerning Wormwood cannot be easily refuted:  (1) It burned like a lamp, and the Hebrew lamp had a fuel supply that kept it burning.  (2) It fell upon the third part of the earth’s water surface, and yet John did not so much as mention a quiver in the earth’s crust as it struck.  He mentions earthquakes time after time throughout the Book of Revelation, but does not mention one occurring as Wormwood strikes the earth.  (3) Whatever Wormwood is, it dissolves in water, because the water becomes Wormwood.  (4) When it dissolves in man’s water supply it gives the water a bitter taste, and it causes many who drink the water to die.

When a “shooting star” is outside the earth’s atmosphere it is called a meteoroid.  When it enters the earth’s atmosphere it is called a meteor.  And, if it is large enough to eventually strike the earth’s surface, before burning into ashes, the solid portion that remains is identified as a meteorite.  For simplicity I will refer to all three phases as “shooting stars” to avoid confusion. Shooting stars are made of nickel, iron, and/or stone.  Now, let us reason together as to why Wormwood cannot be a shooting star by comparing it with John’s Revelation description.

1) A shooting star does not burn like a Hebrew lamp.  It does not have a continuous fuel supply.  Being a solid it burns out very quickly in a matter of seconds to minutes.

2)  If a shooting star large enough to strike one-third of the earth was to make such a contact, the impact of such a solid object would jar the earth to its very foundations, but John reports no such shaking in his vision.

Nickel, iron, and stone do not dissolve in water, but the water is said to become Wormwood.

3) Nickel, iron, and stone do not give water a bitter taste, nor or they poisonous.  During the course of man’s recorded history, thousands of shooting stars have fallen into local water sources, and yet there has never been a validated report of poisoning recorded.

One might argue at this point that God could make a shooting star with a continuous fuel supply, which melted instead of burned, dissolved in water, made water taste bitter, and was poisonous to mankind.  He doesn’t have to make one, because he made many heavenly bodies long ago that do all of these things – we call them comets.  The “aster” of Revelation 8:10 is one of God’s trillions of comets.  Why am I so confident that Wormwood is a comet?  My reasons are as follows:

1) A comet has a continuous fuel supply.  As it approaches the sun its fuel supply begins to be released by sublimation, and it then moves through the heavens like a great, ever burning lamp.

2) If a comet entered the earth’s atmosphere it would not burn to ashes, for a comet is composed largely of ice.  It would not burn, but would melt by sublimation, and eventually fall as liquid, and a super thick cloud, upon one-third of man’s water supply.  As the ice melted from a solid into a super thick glob of vapor and liquid, the trillions of pieces of nickel, iron, and stone, embedded in the ice, would be released.  The super thick cloud of liquid and vapor would decelerate in his descent toward the earth, but the released solids, being heavier, would be subject to greater gravitation pull, and would proceed to the earth in advance of the cloud, burning in the atmosphere as shooting stars.  To an observer on the earth it would appear that all the stars of heaven were falling to earth in advance of the cloud that would eventually settle on one-third of man’s water supply. “But in those days after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, [25] And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.” (Mark 13:24,25)

3) As the comet passed through the earth’s atmosphere during its melting process, it would release methyl cyanide, hydrogen cyanide, and a wide range of cyanogenic poisons, all of which are 100 percent water soluble and have a bitter taste.

4) Methyl cyanide, hydrogen cyanide, and cyanogenic gases are extremely toxic, and many would die of the poisoning effects.

Comets originate from a region between our solar system and the nearest stars.  There are trillions of comets in this great comet cloud.  There appears to be a virtually endless supply of them, for each year new comets are discovered and others go out of existence, victims of the shattering effects of the sun.  When earth passes through the old path of a comet, the small solid particles, which melted off the outer veneer of its icy surface, are intercepted, and meteor showers are produced in our atmosphere.  These showers occasionally exhibit as many as a thousand shooting stars per minute falling through the earth’s atmosphere.

A comet is one of God’s strangest creations.  There is nothing quite like it.  A comet nucleus is made of solid ice, but it is actually ice made of gases that solidified in the unbelievable coldness of outer space.  As the ice ball nucleus approaches the sun, its outer surface begins to pass directly from solid ice to a gas by sublimation, and we earthlings begin to observe its long, gaseous, lamp like tail.  A Hebrew lamp, because they did not refine the olive oil, put out a gray trail of smoke when it burned. Figure 18 illustrates how the comet’s tail always points away from the sun because of the sun’s solar winds.

The black specks on the surface of the comet in figure 17 are small pieces of nickel, iron, and stone that become embedded in the outer layer of ice by contact as the comet makes its long elliptical orbit around the sun and our solar system.  These pieces of nickel, iron, and stone are released into its tail along the comet’s path when the sun’s rays begin to melt the comet, as illustrated in figure 18.  Sometimes the gaseous tail of a comet has been observed to extend out to 150 million miles from its nucleus, and over this great distance a trail of small, solid pieces of space debris is laid down in space.  Every year, particularly during the late fall and early winter, the earth passes through several comet tails of the past, and dramatic shooting star displays are visible in our atmosphere.

The solid chunk of ice nucleus varies in size, some being less than 20 miles across, while other icy centers are several thousand miles in diameter.  When the nucleus comes within the warming rays of the sun it begins to melt, and this produces the coma and tail shown in figure 19.  The icy nucleus is composed of hydrogen, helium, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen gases in a solid icy state.  As the ultraviolet rays of the sun strike this combination of elemental gases, several compounds are produced.  Among these gases are methyl cyanide, hydrogen cyanide, and a whole range of cyanogenic poisons.  When Russian, Italian, and Japanese satellites went in, around, and over the coma and nucleus of Halley’s Comet in 1986, scientists were shocked by the very heavy concentrations of cyanogenic gases that were discovered.  The same heavy concentrations have also been observed in all probes of comets since 1986.

I do not know which of the trillions of comets God will select to be Wormwood, but I am certain that Wormwood is a comet.  When Wormwood enters the earth’s atmosphere it will not burn, it will melt.  And, as it goes directly from a solid to a gas, it will release into the earth’s atmospheric the aforementioned deadly gases of figure 19.  Figure 20 pictures another creation of God described in Ecclesiastes 1:7 – “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.”

This creation of God, known as the Hydrological Cycle, is the cycle into which the 100 percent water soluble, poisonous gases of figure 21 will be released.  God has so designed the earth’s atmosphere that the sun’s rays cause exposed water surfaces to be turned into a rising gas called water vapor.  As the water vapor is set free from its liquid state by evaporation, it rises and cools at the rate of 1 degree centigrade for every 100 meters it is lifted.  Continued lifting produces a visible gas structure by condensation, which we call a cloud.  Further lifting causes the water vapor to condense on microscopic floating particles in the air and, if they grow heavy enough, they fall to the earth as precipitation.  God’s comet gases will readily mix with God’s water vapor in God’s hydrological system to fall as God’s deadly precipitation on one-third of the water supply God made for man.  The things of God’s creation will be used to destroy most of what represents God’s most complex creation – mankind.  Once again, I make my continuously repetitious point:  God will destroy most of mankind with His creation, not with the creations of mankind.
