Most of the people throughout the world will not believe the reality of the End of the World; understood as the Great Tribulation Period, which is actually the End of the Age of Grace and the Beginning of the Millennial Age, until an earthquake causes the ground to move beneath their feet and the sky rolls black with volcanic ash and their entire Earth Life is being destroyed right before their eyes…

The goal of these pages dealing with Geological Events, Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tsunamis is to help you understand the reality of these events, as they will eventually become a chaotic worldwide event…

One of the most destructive events during the Great Tribulation Period will be the Volcanic Burning of the Vatican City in Rome, Italy….

The Volcanic Burning of the Vatican City

Revelation 18: [8] Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire:for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. [9] And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, [10] Standing afar off for the fear of hertorment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour is thy judgment come. [15] The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, [17] For in one hour so great riches is come to naught. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, [18] And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! [19] And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! For in one hour is she made desolate.

The Greek word definitions:

Revelation 18:8 utterly burned with fire – to burn up, blasted and consume by fire.

Revelation 18:9 & 19 the smoke of her burning – the burning by which metals are roasted and reduced; by a figure drawn from a refiners fire; calamities or trials that test the character.

Revelation 18:10 & 15 torment – to torture, a testing by the touchstone, which is a black siliceous stone used to test the purity of gold or silver by the color of the streak produced on it by rubbing it with either metal.

Revelation 18:17 & 19 come to naught & made desolate – to make desolate, lay waste, to ruin, bring to desolation, to despoil one, strip her of her treasures.

For more information, be sure to check out these two pages on my Website:

The final part of the Great Tribulation Period 3 1/2 years and mostly during the about last 45 days of the Wrath of God will be the Destruction of Rome, Italy and the Vatican City at the very end of this time period; perhaps just a few days before the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1….The Volcanic Burning of the Vatican City

2….The Future Destruction of Rome, Italy

The Lord Jesus Christ will return as the Parousia in bodily presence through this Volcanic Ash Cloud and begin His Millennial Reign. The Glory of the Brightness of His body will illuminate sufficiently to be refracted visibly surrounding the entire planet and every human will see Him upon His Return.

The Great Tribulation Period will be composed of the 7 Trumpets and 7 Vials of the Book of Revelation. True Christian Believers will be on earth until the 7th Trumpet, in which case; whoever may survive the 1st thru 6th Trumpet, will be caught out on the 7th Trumpet. The Spiritually Lost human beings who survive the 7 Trumpets will have to endure the 7 Vials of the Wrath of God, which will last about 45 days.
