Light and Darkness

There are very few people through the history of humanity that are actually people of light. Most of the people in the history of humanity are people of darkness.

Light:

A — 1: φῶς
(Strong’s #5457 — Noun Neuter — phos — foce )

akin to phao, “to give light” (from roots pha—, and phan—, expressing “light as seen by the eye,” and, metaphorically, as “reaching the mind,” whence phaino, “to make to appear,” phaneros, “evident,” etc.); cp. Eng., “phosphorus” (lit., “light-bearing”). “Primarily light is a luminous emanation, probably of force, from certain bodies, which enables the eye to discern form and color. Light requires an organ adapted for its reception (Matthew 6:22 ). Where the eye is absent, or where it has become impaired from any cause, light is useless. Man, naturally, is incapable of receiving spiritual light inasmuch as he lacks the capacity for spiritual things, 1 Corinthians 2:14 . Hence believers are called ‘sons of light,’ Luke 16:8 , not merely because they have received a revelation from God, but because in the New Birth they have received the spiritual capacity for it.

“Apart from natural phenomena, light is used in Scripture of (a) the glory of God’s dwelling-place, 1 Timothy 6:16 ; (b) the nature of God, 1 John 1:5 ; (c) the impartiality of God, James 1:17 ; (d) the favor of God, Psalm 4:6 ; of the King, Proverbs 16:15 ; of an influential man, Job 29:24 ; (e) God, as the illuminator of His people, Isaiah 60:19,20 ; (f) the Lord Jesus as the illuminator of men, John 1:4,5,9 ; 3:19 ; 8:12 ; 9:5 ; 12:35,36,46 ; Acts 13:47 ; (g) the illuminating power of the Scriptures, Psalm 119:105 ; and of the judgments and commandments of God, Isaiah 51:4 ; Proverbs 6:23 , cp. Psalm 43:3 ; (h) the guidance of God, Job 29:3 ; Psalm 112:4 ; Isaiah 58:10 ; and, ironically, of the guidance of man, Romans 2:19 ; (i) salvation, 1 Peter 2:9 ; (j) righteousness, Romans 13:12 ; 2 Corinthians 11:14,15 ; 1 John 2:9,10 ; (k) witness for God, Matthew 5:14,16 ; John 5:35 ; (l) prosperity and general well-being, Esther 8:16 ; Job 18:18 ; Isaiah 58:8-10 .” * [* From Notes on Thessalonians, by Hogg and Vine, pp. 159,160.]

A — 2: φωστήρ
(Strong’s #5458 — Noun Masculine — phoster — foce-tare’ )

denotes “a luminary, light,” or “light-giver;” it is used figuratively of believers, as shining in the spiritual darkness of the world, Philippians 2:15 ; in Revelation 21:11 it is used of Christ as the “Light” reflected in and shining through the heavenly city (cp. Revelation 21:23 ). In the Sept., Genesis 1:14,16 .

A — 3: φωτισμός
(Strong’s #5462 — Noun Masculine — photismos — fo-tis-mos’ )

“an illumination, light,” is used metaphorically in 2 Corinthians 4:4 , of the “light” of the Gospel, and in 2 Corinthians 4:6 , of the knowledge of the glory of God. In the Sept., Job 3:9 ; Psalm 27:1 ; 44:3 ; 78:14 ; 90:8 ; 139:11 .

A — 4: φέγγος
(Strong’s #5338 — Noun Neuter — phengos — feng’-gos )

“brightness, luster,” is used of the “light” of the moon, Matthew 24:29 ; Mark 13:24 ; of a lamp, Luke 11:33 (some mss. have phos, here).

A — 5: λύχνος
(Strong’s #3088 — Noun Masculine — luchnos — lookh’-nos )

“a hand-lamp:”

A — 6: λαμπάς
(Strong’s #2985 — Noun Feminine — lampas — lam-pas’ )

“a torch:”

B — 1: φωτίζω
(Strong’s #5461 — Verb — photizo — fo-tid’-zo )

used (a) intrasitively, signifies “to shine, give light,” Revelation 22:5 ; (b) transitively, (1) “to illumine, to light, enlighten, to be lightened,” Luke 11:36 ; Revelation 21:23 ; in the Passive Voice, Revelation 18:1 ; metaphorically, of spiritual enlightenment, John 1:9 ; Ephesians 1:18 ; 3:9 , “to make … see;” Hebrews 6:4 ; 10:32 , “ye were enlightened,” RV (AV, “… illuminated”); (2) “to bring to light,” 1 Corinthians 4:5 (of God’s act in the future); 2 Timothy 1:10 (of God’s act in the past).

B — 2: ἐπιφαύσκω
(Strong’s #2017 — Verb — epiphausko — ep-ee-fow’-o )

or possibly epiphauo, “to shine forth,” is rendered “shall give … light,” in Ephesians 5:14 , AV (RV, “shall shine upon”), of the glory of Christ, illumining the believer who fulfills the conditions, so that being guided by His “light” he reflects His character. See SHINE. Cp. epiphosko, “to dawn” (really a variant form of epiphausko).

B — 3: λάμπω
(Strong’s #2989 — Verb — lampo — lam’-po )

“to give the light of a torch,” is rendered “giveth light” in Matthew 5:15 , AV (RV, “shineth”).

B — 4: ἐπιφαίνω
(Strong’s #2014 — Verb — epiphaino — ep-ee-fah’ee-no )

transitively, “to show forth” (epi, “upon,” phaino, “to cause to shine”), is used intransitively and metaphorically in Luke 1:79 , and rendered “to give light,” AV (RV, “to shine upon”).

B — 5: ἅπτω
(Strong’s #681 — Verb — hapto — hap’-to )

“to kindle a fire” and so give “light:”

B — 6: καίω
(Strong’s #2545 — Verb — kaio — kah’-yo )

“to burn,” is translated “do (men) light” in Matthew 5:15 .

B — 7: ἀστράπτω
(Strong’s #797 — Verb — astrapto — as-trap’-to )

“to flash forth, lighten as lightning” (akin to astrape, “lightning”), occurs in Luke 17:24 ; 24:4 (AV “shining;” RV, “dazzling”).

Note: In Luke 2:32 , AV, the noun apokalupsis, “an unveiling, revelation,” preceded by eis, “unto, with a view to,” is rendered “to lighten” (RV, “for revelation;” marg., “(the) unveiling”).

C — 1: φωτεινός
(Strong’s #5460 — Adjective — photeinos — fo-ti-nos’ )

from phos (A, No. 1), “bright,” is rendered “full of light” in Matthew 6:22 ; Luke 11:34,36 (twice), figuratively, of the single-mindedness of the eye, which acts as the lamp of the body; in Matthew 17:5 , “bright,” of a cloud.

Event 8 – Christ returns with all the saved some 1335 days after the initial attack of Islamic forces against Israel.

SUMMARY

  1. Israel will be attacked to start the last 1335 days of Israel’s Travail
  2. Jerusalem will fall 30 days after the initial attack
  3. The two witnesses will testify for 1260 days after the fall of Jerusalem
  4. A truce or hudna will be declared at Beersheba 45 days after Jerusalem falls
  5. Israel will remain in the Negev for 1260 days after the truce or hudna
  6. Antichrist will kill the two witnesses and declare himself to be God on the Temple Mount making himself the “abomination that maketh desolate.”
  7. Three and one-half days later three events occur in rapid succession on the same day: (1) The two witnesses ascend into heaven, (2) A great earthquake occurs, and (3) The seventh trump sounds and all the saved are caught up, including the sealed 144,000.

A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:30: And I will show a token, a sign and wonder in the visible arch of the sky where the clouds move and throughout all the earth, in the fields, in the country, in the wilderness and it will have the appearance of blood, along with a burning, hot flaming fire, with columns of cloudy dust, smoke and vapor.

A composite of the Hebrew words for Joel 2:31: The brilliant sun, from the rising of the sun in the east to the sun rays in the arch ways of the sky, will be changed into darkness, as if it were night and the moon will take on the appearance of blood before the great and noble, fearful and terrible day in which Jehovah, the self-Existing One, the Eternal Lord shall come.

A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:19: And I will bring forth a rare event so extraordinary, it will inspire wonder, for it will be in the elevated area of the sky and a token of these events, will be throughout the entire regions under the surface of the soil, of all the land of the world, for it will be a visible wonder of flowing substance like blood, of flashes of lightening and fire, with a mist of smoke.

A composite of the Greek words for Acts 2:20: The rising of the sun in the east and the rays of daily light will become as an outlining shadow and the bright shining moon, will appear to be a blood red color, before that mighty and visible day in which the One in supreme authority will come.

The Extinction Cycle a.k.a. the Biblical Great Tribulation Period

*****

The following information is generally being placed on the bottom of some of the pages in which are being renamed and reworked. The goal is to help any visitor to better understand the overall theme of the End Times Biblical Teaching of the Great Tribulation Period, etc. It is not to overwhelm the page or the viewer, but to capture your attention, as some viewers only visit one page or many just a few and then move on, never to return again. Maybe with this material, you will understand how, then the why of the method. This bottom information material was created on June 4, 2022 and I may add a few more notes of time to time, which will appear on some pages, but not others. Most recent updates added to this page was on June 27, 2022.

*****

When the coming Extinction Cycle a.k.a the Biblical Great Tribulation Period actually begins with the Great Earthquakes; Massive Volcanic Eruptions; Tsunamis on a Global scale; a Comet hits the earth; the Magnetic Field weakens and allows Comic Lightening to strike the earth; and all the World Governmental, Corporate Business and Mainstream Religious Leaders, including all of the so called powers-that-be fail to provide Truthful answers; how are the almost 8 billion masses of humanity going to feel, when their lives are about to vanish away?

*****

It is going to be so amazing when these events begin to unfold and the people who present themselves as Leaders of People, (great and powerful), become nothing but mere frighten helpless creatures of earthen clay.

Be sure to take time to watch them.

They will help you to understand how God will use the Earth to bring about the Great Tribulation Period with the use of Earthquakes and Volcanoes, including Tsunamis, which are produced by Underwater Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions, throughout the Oceans and Seas of the world.

There is virtually an unlimited amount of comprehension in the Universe. It is going to be so amazing, when True Christian Believers enter into infinity!!! Likewise, it is going to be very unfortunate for others, who are not True Christian Believers, but simply put on a show of religion or else those individuals who have never been Saved by Grace through Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

June 14, 2022: Hey Viewers, if any??? Here is a brief review with links about some Bible Prophecy dealing with Islam, Judaism and Roman Catholics.
*****
01.  There are several pages of studies on this website about how the Roman Catholics will unite with Islam and eventually with the Biblical Antichrist of the 10 Islamic nations in the Middle East; which will form an Islamic Caliphate. Sometime during this 3 ½ year time frame, the followers of Islam will turn against the Catholics within the region and basically pillage and burn their buildings, then kill them by the millions.
*****
02.  Islam in a round-about-way is trying and will more so in the future, to deceive the Jews in Israel; that they want peace, at least in some regards, among some groups of people. This will catch them off guard; then the Islamic masses surrounding the nation Israel will conduct a surprise military attack and kill 2/3rds of the Jewish population, capture Jerusalem and all the land from Dan to Beersheba; then hold it for 3 ½ years. There are about 6,894,000 Jews in Israel. The Bible informs us that of this Jewish population, 2/3rds will be killed during the invasion from the Islamic forces, which will amount to about 4,619,000 Jews; more or less, depending on when this invasion occurs.
*****
03.  The followers of Islam during this end time prophecy, will be giving an allegiance to the Biblical Antichrist or Beast of Revelation. This person is the Islamic leader of the core 10 Islamic Nations that unite to form this Caliphate in the Middle East. At the end of this 3 ½ years at the Battle of Armageddon; when it is assembled in the Valley of Megiddo, (Megiddo valley is also called Plain of Esdraelon or Plain of Jezreel (Vale of Jezreel) the Jordan River Valley will spread apart enough to create a Basalt Lava Field and destroy the majority of the army of the Antichrist. The masses of Islamic followers, along with the Islamic Antichrist and the Islamic Religious leader will all be cast into the Lake of Fire.
*****
04. This study reminds me of the Story of Babel, when people built a tower and were of one language, then God came down and put an end to their project. The Great Tribulation Period will be a process of putting an end to this one world type religious merger. Of course, most people will not accept this fact; but this new world religious merger will only be allowed to exist for a few years; as the Great Tribulation Period, with the Wrath of God from the Book of Revelation will put an end to this process; with the destruction of most of the population of the world and finally the complete and total burning of the Vatican City in Rome, Italy by the Volcanic Fire from the Volcanic Complex above the Subduction Zone, then the entire land will subside into Hades; and then being covered by the Mediterranean Sea. This will be the End of the Vatican City, as the leadership of this religious system will not be allowed to enter into the Millennial Reign of the Lord Jesus Christ.
*****
Here is where the Vatican City and it’s leadership will be going in the near future; including all the followers of Islam; the Devil; the Islamic Antichrist, who is the Islamic Leader of the Caliphate and the Islamic False Prophet; the masses of False Religions; the Atheists and every human being who is considered accountable to be able to make a decision about receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior; but will not put their Faith in the Blood Sacrifice of Christ alone. There future is under the crust of the earth, which is Hades or even further down, within the core of the earth and eventually they all will be cast into the Lake of Fire, which will probably be some form of energy, beyond the elements of the present earth or even the stars in the universe. At least you will not be concerned about Climate Change or Global Warming!!! Wow, I made a little joke!!!
*****
Revelation 14: [9] And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, [10] The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: [11] And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
*****
Revelation 19: [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
*****
*****
Revelation 20: [10] And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. [11] And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. [12] And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. [13] And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. [14] And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. [15] And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

An upper layer of the sun’s atmosphere called the photosphere has a temperature of about 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. If one compares this temperature to the Earth’s core temperature, which is approximately 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit, one finds that the Earth’s core is hotter than this layer of the sun’s surface. However, the sun’s core temperature can be as high as 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. If one compares this to Earth’s core temperature of 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit, then the sun’s core temperature is much hotter than that of the Earth’s core. If one goes more in-depth into the universe, a helium flash in the core of Red Giant Stars; the temperature reaches 200 million Kelvin = 359,999,540 degrees Fahrenheit.
*****
Perhaps the hottest place is in the star core temperature that rises to over 100 billion degrees Fahrenheit as the iron atoms are crushed together, just before a star goes supernova, then turns into a black hole.
*****
Of course, these temperatures are estimated; but such places will not be a pleasant environment to exist in for eternity!!!

Genesis 11: [1] And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.[2] And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. [3] And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. [4] And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. [5] And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. [6] And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. [7] Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. [8] So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. [9] Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

There will be a comet coming in the future; as it will be Trumpet 3 and Vial 3 of the Book of Revelation, as it will actually hit the earth’s atmosphere, melt and cause a massive meteor storm, with the chemical poisons being absorbed into the hydrological cycle possible over Eurasia. Here are some interesting links about the subject:

The general focus of this website is to provide Biblical, Astronomical, Geological and Meteorological; including Middle East Political events, related to the Islamic Caliphate that are forthcoming; with information about the Great Tribulation Period from the 7 Trumpets and 7 Vials of the Book of Revelation and the Parousia of the Lord Jesus Christ.
*****
There is sufficient study material on this website to serve as a guide towards understanding the Truthful Teaching of the Biblical Antichrist and his Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East Region; the Great Tribulation Period; the Seven Trumpets and Vials of the Book of Revelation; the 45+/- Days of the Wrath of God; the Rapture of the True Christian Believers, a.k.a. the Catching Out; the Parousia of the Lord Jesus Christ; and finally, some general information about the beginning of the Millennial Reign.
*****
Here are some interesting Videos about the Economy. This is important, as the economy worsens, this will cause the rise of the Biblical Antichrist in the Middle East Region and eventually the Mark, Name and Number of the Beast, 666; which will basically be a means of identification, mostly used in the Islamic Caliphate Empire for the food rations program.

Coronal Mass Ejections from the Sun. I believe eventually, these charged particles will hit the Earth in the Future; that will be so intense, they will penetrate through an opening in the Magnetic Shield, as it will be at a weaken state; then upon striking the Earth, will cause the three Earthquakes, with the 3rd being the Greatest Earthquake in Human History, as is mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

There are a few verses in the Book of Revelation that have the word: lightning in the text.

It is possible, this Cosmic Lightning could occur and cause Earthquakes, which in turn cause Volcanic Eruptions, which have Volcanic Lightning!!!

Here are the Verses in Revelation. It starts with the Seven Trumpets and Ends with the Seven Vials of the Wrath of God.

1. Revelation 8:5: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

2. Revelation 11:19: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

3. Revelation 16:18 & 21: 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. [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.

***

Here is a brief statement of what I a referring to, with regards to Cosmic Lightning:  “For an hour on March 13th, a big crack opened in Earth’s magnetic field – one of the biggest in years (For specialists: BsubZ less than -20 nT),” Dr. Tony Phillips of SpaceWeather.com noted.“Solar wind poured through the gap, adding its energy to that of the CME which struck earlier in the day. This increases the chances that high-latitude auroras may remain visible at least through the early hours of March 14th.” What Dr. Phillips described took place from 21:33 to 22:36 UTC.  From:   Watchers.News/2022/03/13/CME Hits Earth
