The End of the World
"Newspaper Rock," Utah, USA; And the "Red Dragon"
Proof that the SUN does get angry! The black is clearly a scorching from the sun many thousands of years back.
In late 2018 it kept getting closer and closer to the sun and could only be seen early in the morning right before the sun rose. It was in the South-Eastern sky. By the end of 2019, it could no longer be seen, because it went behind the sun (from our perspective; Actually we went behind the sun.). By 2021, it could be seen in the South-Western sky, just after sundown. It appeared as a star with a red planet, but more likely what I was looking at was a red star with a very shiny planet. Now (2022), it can be seen again in the South-Eastern sky just before sunrise. Here is a recent photo that I took. If you look at it with binoculars, you can see TWO (not one) objects heading our direction. I say it is heading our direction because it gets brighter and brighter every day. BUT, it is getting closer and closer to the rising sun, which means it will be out of view for a while. My guess is that it will no longer be visible by Fall of this year, and be back in view by sometime in 2023.
AND, IT HAS BEEN HERE BEFORE!!!!
EGYPT RECORDED IT!
The Bible prophesies that the sun will get hotter, it will scorch men, and kill 1/3rd of all plants. Men will hide in the rocks to escape the anger of the sun. BUT, the Bible ALSO tells us that it has been here before (not literally; you have to read between the lines). Egyptian scribes tell us that the ten plagues of Egypt were due to a goddess named Hathor-Sekhmet. Now, if you understand (and you should) that all the gods of the ancients (except the gods of the Hebrews) were merely personifications of real natural phenomena, then this pill will be easier to swallow. Hathor-Sekmet represented a red sun. See...
Her name-symbol on her head is that of a red sun.
Now, if you are an Egyptologist who isn't aware that we live in a binary solar system with an actual red sun, then you might think that Harthor-Sekhmet (who is the daughter of Ra), merely represented the sun when it looks red (like when there's a lot of smoke in the air). BUT WAIT... till you read the story (myth) of Hathor-Sekhmet.
According the Egyptian mythology, Hathor was a
rather docile, peaceful daughter of Ra, and she was rather liked, too.
But, when Ra got angry...

IT's COMING BACK AGAIN
The book of Revelation (9:11) mentions Abaddon, AKA: Apollyon (AKA: Apollo; a Solar deity) who will rise out of the bottomless pit (i.e., the darkness of space) sending little locusts (i.e., rays of ultraviolet light and gamma radiation) which will have the power to "sting" men for 5 months. Could that be Coronal Mass Ejections from Solar Flares?
There are many rocks like Newspaper Rock (pictured above at the top of this page) all over Utah. Also, in addition to the burnt rock faces, we need to understand that the Great Basin of Eastern Nevada and Western Utah, used to be a great inland sea (called Bonneville Lake by geologists) that is all dried up now, except for a small remnant called Salt Lake, near Salt Lake City, Utah.
How did it dry up? Well, the sun got HOT! (and/or there was a great earthquake that opened up the Bryce Canyon, Glen Canyon, and Grand Canyon and all the water ran out towards the sea. (Take your pick). [This sentence is supported by Native American Legend].

The Red Dragon caused
Herein below, I compare Hebrew Prophecy (Book of Revelation) with the Buryat-Mongolian Epic of King Gesar (which is also part of Tibetan Lore). Special Thanks to Sarangerel, who translated the Myth/Epic of King Gesar into English.
FOREWORD: The article in Wikipedia about King Gesar, will tell you that there are many "wise men" who have their theories on who King Gesar was. They are all wrong. Their timing is wrong, too. This happened a very long time ago. I believe that the Hebrew-Egyptian account of the 10 plagues of Egypt coincided with the Buryat-Mongolian account, putting that even back approximately 4,000 years ago.
Oh! Wait! There's more!
Just keep scrolling.
The Sumerians told us all about a red
star, possibly a twin star to our yellow star,
and quite possibly the origin of all the "twin" cosmological myths
around the planet. IF the Sumerians had a name for this red
star, I'm not aware. As I understand it, there is a planet that
revolves around that red star called Nibiru. It is from Nibiru that the
Sumerian gods, the Anunnaki, claim to have originated. According to Jeremiah Sitchin,
the last time Nibiru came around was 3600 years ago, which would be about the
time of the 10 plagues of Egypt.
<---Not linked because I'm NOT promoting his book.
The Kolbrin Bible is alleged to be an Egyptian text allegedly somehow brought to us by Marshall Masters. Marshall claims that the first six books of the Kolbrin Bible were penned by Egyptian authors. How Marshall got a hold of said texts is beyond me. How he translated them is beyond me. So, obviously, there hasn't been much said by others about his book. Is it a work of fiction? I do not know. Whether the book is a book of fiction or not, Marshall is VERY convinced that we will soon be seeing the Destroyer in our skies. The alleged Egyptian books tell of the DESTROYER, a large celestial body that comes near to the Earth every 3600 years (disputable timing), reeking havoc on our planet and peoples, causing plagues of all kinds. The last time it came was during the 10 plagues of Moses. If the Marshall is correct, then the Destroyer blocked out the sun for three days. THREE WHOLE DAYS!!!!
Cross reference that with Exodus 10:21-22: "And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days."
PLEASE NOTE: That I place more stock in the Hathor-Sekhmet myth above as evidence that the Egyptians actually DID record that event. (And, you don't have to pay 45 bucks to find out, either.)
"And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth." [compare the Dresden codex of Mayan Prophecy (below) where there is a picture of a huge serpent spewing out water upon the earth in the last days].
For more detailed interpretation of the book of Revelation, please click here. (I cover from chapter 12 till the end).
"Quatrain 2.46 After great human misery a greater approaches, The great motor of the centuries renewed: Rain, blood, milk, famine, weapons (wars?), and pestilence, In the sky fire seen, dragging long sparks."
NOTE: "The great motor of the centuries renewed"
is said to be the beginning of the new millennium (after 2000 A.D.)
[Actually, I think the dragon is referring to some cosmic body coming by and bringing heat (which causes rain) and a bunch of space debris with it, some of which will no doubt hit planet Earth.]
HOPI PROPHECY: BLUE STAR (Kachina) Prophecy & RED STAR (Kachina) Prophecy
The Hopi (a tribe of American Aborigines) of the current United States of America have a series of prophecies of what will happen prior to what they call the "Purification Period". All have been fulfilled, except the red star prophecy. First the blue star (twins) will come by our planet (i.e., will been seen in the heavens). Then, a red star (called by the HOPI: "The Purifier"), and cleanse the earth of those who refuse to live righteously, in harmony with nature.
Allegedly, after the blue star shows up, we have 7 years to get ready for the purification by the red star. [Annotations needed here].

And I quote:
"When the Purifier comes we will see him first as a small Red Star which will come very close and sit in our heavens watching us. Watching us to see how well we have remembered the sacred teachings."

VIETNAMESE BUDDHIST PROPHECY
While in Vietnam, I must have passed a hidden temple 108 times before I realized that inside the gate, there actually was a temple. It was not displayed on any map of the city. There were no signs or symbols that would indicate that it was a Buddhist temple. There was just a brick wall surrounding the grounds, with an ordinary gate. Being the curious fellow that I am, one day, I decided to see what was inside the gate. Lo and behold, it was a temple! I went in and explored the grounds, and what I discovered there was the most amazing thing! I took a picture (2009). Look!
DO YOU SEE THAT! Is that not the most amazing thing? A star is at the tail of the dragon (which probably represents the red sun coming), and water is spewing out of his mouth.
DO YOU THINK That maybe the ancients are trying to tell us something? That is a prophecy in stone. I wanted to ask somebody, "Do you know what this means?" but, I didn't speak Vietnamese. I was so excited to find that prophecy. No where else in Vietnam did I see this prophecy, though I looked at every temple I could find.
Taoist Concept of the 3 Suns
The Buddhists took the TAOIST concept of the 3 suns and turned it into a doctrine, which is interesting, saying that each sun represents an age and each age (or dispensation of time) was initiated by a different Buddha. Interesting, but it's just religious mumbo jumbo.
The Confucians took the TAOIST concept of the 3 suns and likewise turned it into a doctrine, which is about ages as well, (1) Disorder, (2) Approaching Peace, and (3) Peace. It's a nice view, but I don't subscribe to it.
And, a sect that I've never heard of before, Yiguandao, has taken the concept of the 3 suns and turned it into a doctrine, that I don't agree with at all.
Evidence suggests that the concept of the 3 suns predates both the Buddhist version and the Confucian version in the TAOIST cosmology, but I can find no information on the web regarding the actual original meanings of the 3 suns, except that three suns appeared on the day that LaoZi was born.
MOTHER SHIPTON'S PROPHECY
FOREWORD: Mother Shipton was a prophetess, a seer. Her prophecy is a dire prophecy, which is very similar with Major Ed Dames' ("Dr. Doom's) prophecy. She saw a fiery dragon in the sky which causes the destruction of Earth, save a few survivors. [Note: Major Ed Dames is a remote viewer who saw the Earth being "attacked" by a Solar Flare and Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) headed straight for Earth].
Here is the whole prophecy:
And now a word, in uncouth rhyme
Of what shall be in future time
Then upside down the world shall be
And gold found at the root of tree
All England's sons that plough the land
Shall oft be seen with Book in hand
The poor shall now great wisdom know
Great houses stand in farflung vale
All covered o'er with snow and hail
A carriage without horse will go
Disaster fill the world with woe.
In London, Primrose Hill shall be
In centre hold a Bishop's See
Around the world men's thoughts will fly
Quick as the twinkling of an eye.
And water shall great wonders do
How strange. And yet it shall come true.
Through towering hills proud men shall ride
No horse or ass move by his side.
Beneath the water, men shall walk
Shall ride, shall sleep, shall even talk.
And in the air men shall be seen
In white and black and even green
A great man then, shall come and go
For prophecy declares it so.
In water, iron, then shall float
As easy as a wooden boat
Gold shall be seen in stream and stone
In land that is yet unknown.
And England shall admit a Jew
You think this strange, but it is true
The Jew that once was held in scorn
Shall of a Christian then be born.
A house of glass shall come to pass
In England. But Alas, alas
A war will follow with the work
Where dwells the Pagan and the Turk
These states will lock in fiercest strife
And seek to take each others life.
When North shall thus divide the south
And Eagle build in Lions mouth
Then tax and blood and cruel war
Shall come to every humble door.
Three times shall lovely sunny France
Be led to play a bloody dance
Before the people shall be free
Three tyrant rulers shall she see.
Three rulers in succession be
Each springs from different dynasty.
Then when the fiercest strife is done
England and France shall be as one.
The British olive shall next then twine
In marriage with a german vine.
Men walk beneath and over streams
Fulfilled shall be their wondrous dreams.
For in those wondrous far off days
The women shall adopt a craze
To dress like men, and trousers wear
And to cut off their locks of hair
They'll ride astride with brazen brow
As witches do on broomstick now.
And roaring monsters with man atop
Does seem to eat the verdant crop
And men shall fly as birds do now
And give away the horse and plough.
There'll be a sign for all to see
Be sure that it will certain be.
Then love shall die and marriage cease
And nations wane as babes decrease
And wives shall fondle cats and dogs
And men live much the same as hogs.
In nineteen hundred and twenty six
Build houses light of straw and sticks.
For then shall mighty wars be planned
And fire and sword shall sweep the land
When pictures seem alive with movements free
When boats like fishes swim beneath the sea,
When men like birds shall scour the sky
Then half the world, deep
drenched in blood shall die.
For those who live the century through
In fear and trembling this shall do.
Flee to the mountains and the dens
To bog and forest and wild fens.
For storms will rage and oceans roar
When Gabriel stands on sea and shore
And as he blows his wondrous horn
Old worlds die and new be born.
A fiery dragon will cross the sky
Six times before this earth shall die.
Mankind will tremble and frightened be
for the sixth heralds in this prophecy.
For seven days and seven nights
Man will watch this awesome sight.
The tides will rise beyond their ken
To bite away the shores and then
The mountains will begin to roar
And earthquakes split the plain to shore.
And flooding waters, rushing in
Will flood the lands with such a din
That mankind cowers in muddy fen
And snarls about his fellow men.
He bares his teeth and fights and kills
And secrets food in secret hills
And ugly in his fear, he lies
To kill marauders, thieves and spies.
Man flees in terror from the floods
And kills, and rapes and lies in blood
And spilling blood by mankind's hands
Will stain and bitter many lands
And when the dragon's tail is gone,
Man forgets, and smiles, and carries on
To apply himself - too late, too late
For mankind has earned deserved fate.
His masked smile - his false grandeur,
Will serve the Gods their anger stir.
And they will send the Dragon back
To light the sky - his tail will crack
Upon the earth and rend the earth
And man shall flee, King, Lord, and serf.
But slowly they are routed out
To seek diminishing water spout
And men will die of thirst before
The oceans rise to mount the shore.
And lands will crack and rend anew
You think it strange. It will come true.
And in some far off distant land
Some men - oh such a tiny band
Will have to leave their solid mount
And span the earth, those few to count,
Who survives this (unreadable) and then
Begin the human race again.
But not on land already there
But on ocean beds, stark, dry and bare
Not every soul on Earth will die
As the Dragons tail goes sweeping by.
Not every land on earth will sink
But these will wallow in stench and stink
Of rotting bodies of beast and man
Of vegetation crisped on land.
But the land that rises from the sea
Will be dry and clean and soft and free
Of mankind's dirt and therefore be
The source of man's new dynasty.
And those that live will ever fear
The dragons tail for many year
But time erases memory
You think it strange. But it will be.
And before the race is built anew
A silver serpent comes to view
And spew out men of like unknown
To mingle with the earth now grown
Cold from its heat and these men can
Enlighten the minds of future man.
To intermingle and show them how
To live and love and thus endow
The children with the second sight.
A natural thing so that they might
Grow graceful, humble and when they do
The Golden Age will start anew.
The dragons tail is but a sign
For mankind's fall and man's decline.
And before this prophecy is done
I shall be burned at the stake, at one
My body singed and my soul set free
You think I utter blasphemy
You're wrong. These things have come to me
This prophecy will come to be.
I know I go - I know I'm free
I know that this will come to be.
Secreted this - for this will be
Found by later dynasty
A dairy maid, a bonny lass
Shall kick this tone as she does pass
And five generations she shall breed
Before one male child does learn to read.
This is then held year by year
Till an iron monster trembling fear
eats parchment, words and quill and ink
And mankind is given time to think.
And only when this comes to be
Will mankind read this prophecy
But one mans sweets another's bane
So I shall not have burned in vain.
- Mother Shipton
This section was kept apart from the other and it appears
The signs will be there for all to read
When man shall do most heinous deed
Man will ruin kinder lives
By taking them as to their wives.
And murder foul and brutal deed
When man will only think of greed.
And man shall walk as if asleep
He does not look - he many not peep
And iron men the tail shall do
And iron cart and carriage too.
The kings shall false promise make
And talk just for talking's sake
And nations plan horrific war
The like as never seen before
And taxes rise and lively down
And nations wear perpetual frown.
Yet greater sign there be to see
As man nears latter century
Three sleeping mountains gather breath
And spew out mud, and ice and death.
And earthquakes swallow town and town,
In lands as yet to me unknown.
And christian one fights christian two
And nations sigh, yet nothing do
And yellow men great power gain
From mighty bear with whom they've lain.
These mighty tyrants will fail to do
They fail to split the world in two.
But from their acts a danger bred
An ague - leaving many dead.
And physics find no remedy
For this is worse than leprosy.
Oh many signs for all to see
The truth of this true prophecy.

[Saving the best for last; My favorite.]
The Zoroastrian view of the end-times does not involve a red
sun (at least not overtly), but it does involve a dragon (which may very well
represent the red sun). Because the color of the dragon is not mentioned,
it has been (until now, June 10, 2021), an oversight of mine. Thus, I did
not include the Zoroastrian eschatological myth on this page (although it is
included on another page of
mine). However, I feel that it is worth mentioning here for two
reasons: (1) Of all the end-time myths, it is my favorite, and (2)
it does have a dragon in it.
In the end-times Azi-Dahaka will kill 1/3rd of all humans before it is destroyed by the resurrected Garshasp. Garshasp was human, but quite possibly an incarnation of some benevolent spirit, and certainly was a hero that saved humans from destruction by the Dragon who is the Demon in the Darkness (Cross reference that with the "Destroyer" in other mythology).
KING GARSHASP = KING GESAR, POSSIBLY????
Cross reference the Zoroastrian Myth of King Garshasp with the Mongolian Myth of King Gesar. [Perhaps "Gesar" is a cognate of "Garshasp"]. Please note that above on this same page I did NOT relate the entire myth of King Gesar. Here's the rest of the story: After all the destruction caused by the war in the heavens between Khor Masta [which is a strongly-possible cognate with Ahura Mazda] and the demon-dragon Arkhan, [which may be a cognate of Azi-Dahaka], King Gesar was the human-hero (a god incarnate) who helped the humans survive and rebuild. (That's a long sentence; let me reiterate.) After all the destruction on Earth due to the war in heaven, King Gesar helped humans survive and rebuild. All, I'm saying is that the story of King Garshasp is very similar to the story of King Gesar. [Big Ah-ha moment for me!]
BUT WAIT! That's not all. There's more!
According the Zoroastrian end-time scenario, there will be a "Paradise-Making" which is a lose translation of the ancient Persian word "Frasho-Kereti", which etymologically more closely means "First-state-Making" or going back to the original paradise that this world was in the beginning.
Well, the story goes that the Earth is going to get so hot that the metal in the mountains will melt and flow like molten lava, but to the righteous it will feel like wading in warm milk, but the wicked will burn. Then, the Earth becomes a paradise and only the righteous will be left to enjoy it.
He who hath no name!
You don't want to miss this! I just added a comparison chart of 12 different cultures and their take on the menacing red sun (often portrayed as a dragon/serpent, but sometimes a lion, bird, or wolf).
Here's a taste...
The "Rapture" and the Tribulation
QUESTIONS ADDRESSED HEREIN BELOW:
What is the so-called "Rapture" event?
Many so-called "Christians" believe that they don't need to worry about the coming "tribulations" because they will be "raptured" out beforehand (And, that's the word they use--rapture--for an anticipated event, which isn't even in the Bible).
So, what exactly does the Bible teach us? Well, let's take a look at that, shall we? And then, ask yourself, "Is my preacher teaching me what is actually in the Bible, or is he teaching stuff he has been taught in seminary, which isn't Biblical?
My Dear Readers:
(1) Firstly, the word "rapture" does not appear in the King James Version of the Bible, nope, not even once. So, where does the doctrine of the so-called "rapture" come from? It comes from Paul's epistle to the Thessalonians:
"Caught up" comes from the Greek word, "harpazo (ἁρπάζω), (because the New Testament was written in Greek)... meaning to snatch away or seize." (Wikipedia, "Rapture"). The word, "Rapture," was substituted by many so-called "evangelicals" because such an event would seem rapturous, would it not? The word "rapture" stuck and is used by most main-stream Christians around the world, not even realizing that the word is no where in the Bible. (Just like they think that "the antichrist" is in the Bible, but he is not.) [See my YouTube video about the antichrist.]
But, why would Christians think (or assume) that Jesus' return would be before the so-called "7-year tribulation" ? I'm not sure. The so-called "7-year tribulation" is also not Biblical. Read on to learn more.
Secondly, when did the "Second Coming"
Now, it has generally been widely accepted (especially in modern times) that Matthew 24 is about the coming of Jesus at the end of the world. However, that cannot be true. Jesus said, that the currently living generation would not all pass away before the end came. (Matt. 24:34)
Well, the end of the world didn't come, did it? and that generation has already passed away, hasn't it?
Wouldn't that make Jesus a false prophet if he hadn't come already? Yes, it would! But, everything he said, came to pass.
You see, Matthew 24 was fulfilled by 132 A.D. That would mean that the infant who was alive at the time of Jesus' prophecy would be exactly 100 years old at the time the prophecy was completely fulfilled. Sounds about right.
The so-called "End of the World" (that Jesus referred to) was not for everyone, but for the Jewish people. In 132 A.D. the Jewish people were driven from their land and forbidden to return. (Wikipedia, "Jewish diaspora").
So, Jesus' prophecy was completely fulfilled by 132 A.D. It was the "end of the world" for the Jewish nation.
However, that doesn't prevent people from ignoring Jesus' prophecy that that generation would not all pass away before his prophecy would come to pass. People still are looking for Jesus to come back. And not altogether wrongly, but we'll get to that later. For now, let's address the topic of his second coming.
According to Acts, chapter 1, Jesus came back after his death and tarried with the Saints for 40 days. Then, he ascended into the sky and it was told by two mysterious men dressed in white that Jesus would return a third time, coming from the sky (descending from the sky just as he had ascended).
So, people should stop looking for the Second Coming and be looking for the Third Coming!
But, I get carried away.
(3) "Taken" = DEATH & "Third coming" means a personal visitation
In Jesus' prophecy of his second coming (which you will recall was already fulfilled), he said that one of the signs would be:
Well, I admit that Matthew 24 does sound like it might be the end of the world for the world, but readers beware!
"Taken" means: "Taken to the 'other side' via the process of DEATH!
When the "Lord doth come" is referring to Jesus coming to collect your spirit and take it back to paradise.
"For in an hour ye think not the Son of man cometh," means: You don't know when you are going to die.
You see? The so-called "Second Coming" of Jesus is a personal thing, not a world-wide collective event. Now, as for the Third Coming, Well, that's a different story. And it is perhaps the most interesting of them all, don't you agree? Let's get into that, shall we?
(4) Paul's Writings
If we understand that Jesus' prophecy has already been fulfilled, we have only Paul's letter to the Thessalonians, where we read about the "catching away" to meet the Lord in the clouds.
My interpretation of that is that many people will die, and the good ones will be "caught up" to meet the Lord in the sky in their spirit form. Also, if you listen to some of the so-called "Rapture" dreams that some people are having, their descriptions of those being "raptured" where consistent of spirits/ghosts exiting the planet and drifting upward. Why? because in the dreams, those who were being "raptured" were translucent.
I heard one dream (on YouTube) where there was a lady who was crying out to the Lord, asking why she hadn't been "raptured" before the "tribulation". That (and other things) lead me to believe that there will be many such Christians wondering why they hadn't been 'raptured". The answer is, of course, because she hadn't died yet!
Here's a little pop-quiz for ya:
the rapture happen?
Answer: Even if you don't know what the tribulation is (which is discussed in the next section) you should still be able to answer that question correctly: The answer is d, because it is an on-going thing. The so-called "Day of the Lord," "Judgment Day," "End of Days," "End of times," etc. is referring to when you die, and it is different for nearly everyone.
What is the so-called "Tribulation"?
In Matthew 24, Jesus talks about a "tribulation" that the saints would endure (and they did). [Already fulfilled].
In Revelation, John considers himself being a victim of the "tribulation". [Hence, already fulfilled].
Revelation 7:14 speaks of a 'Great Tribulation', (which has NOT been fully fulfilled yet; but I believe it has started). However, there is no time nor duration given for the 'Great Tribulation'. This is where most people get the doctrine of the tribulation. But, no where in the Bible is there a time given for the so-called 'Great Tribulation'. So, people are looking for a 7-year period of tribulation that they think hasn't happened yet, but that's just not Biblical.
Here's what the Bible really says:
In Revelation 11:3 it says that God's two witnesses (and I guarantee you that you have no idea what that is referring to) shall prophesy 1260 days (3 and 1/2 years). [I will tell you who, or rather what, the two witnesses are below, because I finally figured it out].
In Revelation 12:6 is says that the woman (click to learn more about the woman) shall hide in the wilderness 1260 days (3 and 1/2 years).
You add those up and you get approximately 7 years. So, some people get it in their heads that all that apocalyptic stuff in the book of Revelation will take 7 years. But, that is just not so. Bad stuff will happen before, during and after that. And how do we know that BOTH of the 3 and 1/2 year periods don't coincide? They could be the same 3 and 1/2 years! We just don't know. (Personally, I think that they are either the same 3 and 1/2 years; OR, they overlap some).
Conclusion: From my research, the so-called 7-year tribulation does not appear to be Biblical. However, that doesn't mean that there isn't some really terrible stuff coming. Oh, no! In fact, we're to expect some really bad stuff to happen. I think that the WHOLE book of REVELATION is the TRIBULATION. (And it will take a lot more than seven years to come to fruition). See below.
The Book of Revelation
& The Third Coming.
I consider the book of Revelation to be inspired (and if you don't, well, then skip this section). I believe it has accurate (albeit at times figurative) descriptions of what is yet to come (or has already been fulfilled). However, the book of Revelation does not mention anything akin to a "rapture" type event. So, I will not discuss that in this section.
The book of Revelation appears to be different than the others, because most of the things written therein have NOT come to pass yet (BUT SOME ARE HAPPENING NOW!!!!!). Take for example: every living thing in the sea dying (happening), one third of the trees dying (happening), one third of the waters being turned to blood (happening), two-thirds of humanity dying (hmmm). Things like that. Also, a great object falling from heaven and poising all the waters (definitely hasn't happened yet). The book of Revelation appears to be a prophecy that for the most part has yet to be fulfilled.
The Third Coming (or NOT!)
Apparently, Jesus is supposed to come back again (a third time), according to the book of Revelation. Or is he? Well, maybe not. Please see the evidence that I give below, but be warned.
The following content is a bit graphic (and yet, it's from the Bible). It is not for the faint of heart. It reveals an entity (and many think that it is Jesus) who is very mean and vengeful; (But the Book of Revelations does not say that it is Jesus). Makes one question whether it is really talking about the same Jesus who came with a message of LOVE. [Note: I reiterate: The book of Revelation does not say it is Jesus; so we must theorize that it is a different entity altogether; and that theorem based upon the context].
I shall quote in red, then put my comment in blue.
 And I saw
heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called
Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had
a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is
called The Word of God.
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the
nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the
winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND
LORD OF LORDS.
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying
to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves
together unto the supper of the great God;
That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh
of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the
flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.
And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered
together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
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.
And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse,
which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with
And that brings me to my final discussion:
What is the Final
Revelation chapter 21 (the final chapter) tells of a "new earth".
Yes! Read it... read the whole chapter! There will be a "new earth" and only the overcomers will be allowed on the new earth.
Zoroastrian prophecy for the last days. (I call your attention to the part where the asteroid hits the earth and the Earth will melt and all the unrighteous will be burned alive, but the righteous will survive). You are probably asking yourself (as I have done): How is this possible?
Well, with modern events and technology and scientific knowledge, we can see very well how this can happen. There are TWO scientific phenomena that you need to be aware of. And, once you do, you can put them together to understand very well how such a thing could happen.
Binary Solar Systems
Human vibrational frequency
Now, what I'm about to present to you is not from peer-reviewed science, because it has never been proven, but I propose that if we raise our vibrational frequency, we will not be affected in negative ways by the solar radiation that is coming from the sun. It is possible that we will be affected (I don't see how we wouldn't be affected), but I'm of the opinion that it will be in positive ways.
The bottom line is that we need to be what John the Revelator calls: "overcomers". We overcome the world (which is highly negative and toxic (both to our bodies and our spirits); by being loving, kind, compassionate, and grateful.
How to be
First of all, what are
the benefits of becoming an overcomer?
BENEFITS OF BEING AN OVERCOMER:
Comment: the tree of life is a symbol of eternal life, for it was written that the partaker thereof would life forever in paradise.
Comment: The so-called 'second death' is a spiritual death, which means a separation from God, and being sent to the lake of fire and brimstone (Rev. 21:8). The overcomer will not be separated from God.
Manna is a like a flat bread or tortilla or nan. Hidden manna is spiritual food;
food for the soul.
Comment: no comment, except to say that this is the perfect lead-in to the next section about what it means to "overcome." But first, one more.
NOW, ...How to overcome.
As Revelation chapter 2 verse 26 indicates, to overcome means to keep the works of Jesus unto the end. Well, that leads us to another question: What are the works of Jesus?
Answer: Did not Jesus heal the sick? Did he not feed the hungry? Did he not clothe the naked? Did he not cast out demons? Did he not forgive others?
Those are the works that the "overcomer" does.
"But I can't heal the sick! I'm not a doctor," you say. Well, that's true, but we can minister to the sick and we can give them love. Sometimes, love is all that is needed to heal the sick, because love will help them build up their immune systems.
"But I can't cast out demons!" you say. Well, that may be true, but you can teach others how to cast out their own demons. See my exorcism page for more details on how to cast out demons.
"But I just can't forgive that one person," you say. Well, you have to. However, I must add here that many people misunderstand what it is to forgive. Forgiveness doesn't mean letting someone get away with murder. Forgiveness doesn't mean you have to let that person back into your life. Forgiveness doesn't mean that you let them keep taking advantage of you (or other people). Forgiveness doesn't mean being foolish and letting the offender keep hurting you (or hurting others). Forgiveness means you let it go and move on with your life. Sometimes moving on means leaving offenders behind. Forgiveness is for the forgiver, not for the forgiven.
Can we forgive others? Yes, we can. Is it easy? No, it is not.
Can we be overcomers? Yes, we can.
Can we be overcomers by going to church every Sunday and singing praises to the Lord and praising God? No.
The overcomer worships God by employing the principles learned in the parable of the sheep and the goats in Matthew chapter 25. Let me quote from Matthew 25: 31-46.
 When the Son of man shall come in his
glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of
And What did the leadership (Peter, James, and John) of the 12 apostles say?
Peter tells us this: "As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: but as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy." And, "Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently." (I Peter 1:14-22)
James tells us this: "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." (James 1:27)
John tells us this: "Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother. For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another." (I John 3:7-11)
Why is the Rapture teaching so dangerous?
Because most of the Born-Again Christians that I hear from are leaning toward the Pre-Tribulation Rapture and they are not preparing for the things to come. Many receive warning dreams and pay no heed, because they believe that their belief in Jesus will save them from having to endure the disasters prophesied in their dreams. They take their dreams to mean that they should warn others and recruit them to Jesus, so they too can avoid the tribulations to come.
In my opinion, God gives you dreams to warn YOU! If you do not heed the warning, you have only yourself to blame. My son was given a dream from God. Read his dream in the next section.
I believe that dreams can be prophetic. I believe that we are all privy to secret knowledge in our dreams. Here is support for that notion:
"But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets... Thy dream, and the vision of thy head upon thy bed, are these." (Daniel 2:28)
"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions." (Joel 2:28)
"Surely the Lord God will do nothing, except he revealeth his secret unto his servants, the prophets." (Amos 3:7)
Many people these days are having dreams of disasters, yet they are not taking precautions. I think that the dreams are given/received so that you can prepare yourselves. NOT so that you can recruit people to Jesus (although that might be a bi-product). Would it not be better to heed the warnings, then afterward recruit people to Jesus? Just saying.
For example, many people who live on either the West coast or the East coast are having tsunami dreams. Yet, they refuse to move away from the coast, thinking that they will be raptured out before anything like that happens.
Show me one precedent in the Bible, where God gave someone a dream, and that person didn't have to do anything. Just stay there and God will save you from the approaching danger. Where is that written?
RE: Rapture Dreams
Many people are having rapture dreams and posting them on YouTube. Not all of them, but some of them clearly show that the people, who are rising to meet Jesus in the clouds, are translucent. Thus, "Rapture" = Death. Many people will die at once (such as from a great tsunami) and the spirits of the good rise up to meet Jesus in the clouds. Rapture doesn't mean taken before death. Rapture means taken after death. If you do the research that I have done by watching hundreds of so-called "rapture dreams" on YouTube, you will see what I mean. So, why don't you avoid death, and live. See my next section, Preppers Section for how to survive the apocalypse.
RE: My son's dream; famine
dream was had either July 31, 2020 or August 1st, 2020.
Some Actual End-times, Prophetic Dreams from Others
to YouTube Video posted by Real Bible Real Life
The first dream was from a guy who sounds Australian, judging from his accent. And, the dream is about a meteor that hits in the ocean nearby and causes a wave that covers the whole island where he lives. (Please note: I'm making the assumption that the wave covers the whole island, because he wakes up right before the wave hits, but I think it is a fair assumption judging by the size/height of the wave.) All of Austronesia should beware.
The second dream was from a lady with an American accent. Don't know what part. Her dream could easily be for anywhere in North America (or all of North America). Her dream was of a power outage (extreme darkness) and that power outage accompanied by a military invasion, and the chaos that ensued.
The third dream was from a Latina lady who I believe lives in Florida, because she mentions Florida. Her dream was of an EMP attack from Asia. It could be for anywhere in the U.S.A.
(2) RE: Sun
flickers and then goes out!
Description: Jessica tells many dreams that she has had. The first and second most important is the one where the sun flickers and then goes out. A scientist told me (and others) that this is possible. When binary stars hit perihelion, there is an exchange of light and particles. Being caught in between means death by fire (sun's plasma). But being caught on the outskirts, means darkness for the planet. The second and most important dream is the one about the rottweilers. The message (directly from Jesus) was that the things that are said to protect us, are actually intended to harm us. (I think that this is a metaphor for certain medications that the powers-of-the-planet are pushing on the population; AKA: the mark of the beast). Both of these dreams affect the entire world.
(3) RE: Injections, Waves, Sun goes out
Description: She retells three dreams posted by a woman named Jamie on a Christian forum. The first dream shows evil people injecting others with something, those people have evil intent. The second dream showed a humungous wave coming. The third dream showed the sun going dark; completely dark. I don't buy into all the religions interpretations that some of the dreamers get into. But, I think that the dreams themselves are telling.
And many, many more.
In the meantime, get prepared. See the next section on how to prepare for the apocalypse.
If you are prepared, you shall not fear.
Yes, the western half of the U.S.A. is suffering unprecedented drought...
Yes! There are unprecedented fires in the West and major flooding in the East....
...But, there are prophecies that say something even more disturbing will happen...
There are many maps made by many different people with various sources that all are saying approximately the same thing. This is what America will look like in the future.
I do not wish to break copyright laws, so I made my own map, which approximates the others.

What could cause this?
Major Ed Dames made a map, too! He doesn't care if people copy it, because he just wants to get the information out there to people, so that they can prepare. Here is his map.
you have not yet found a relatively safe location...
Pray!!!! Make a plan, and pray some more!
Get some water filters!
Get EMP Shield! And, get $50 off with promo code.
(1.5) Make your own Faraday Cage
There are a plethora of videos on YouTube that will teach you how to make your own faraday cage to protect your electronics in case of a Nuclear-bomb-caused EMP or a Solar-flash-caused EMP. That's how I learned, and I made two Faraday cages for my electronics, including my solar-powered electric generator. For added protection, make 'Nested Faraday cages'.
Obviously, the heavier the metal, the better the Faraday cage will be. Most people just use aluminum foil for the first layer, and a metal garbage can for the second layer. All metal layers must be separated by insulation (non-conducting material). Personally, I think that the Ark of the Covenant was a Faraday cage, but who has gold that they can melt down and 'paint' onto the outside of the cage? I certainly don't. So, my home-made Faraday cages may not be the best, but they are better than nothing.
Find like-minded people and form a survival group.
Have a get-away plan.
(4) Get a 'bug-out' bag (or two) packed and have it/them ready to go in case of an emergency. Contents as follows:
- A small water filter. (Clean, potable water will be your first
(5) Start storing food. Anything dry will last forever (as long as you can keep it dry). Some ideas:
- rice and/or wheat (in a water-tight container)
(6) Pray for help and guidance! (Unless you are an atheist, in which case, get away from the COAST and build a bunker and store it with all kinds of food storage).
RE: Symbolism of Revelation 11 and 12
Rev. 11 The two witnesses; What are they?
FOREWORD: REGARDING THE TWO WITNESSES
What do I believe? Well, I'll tell you what they are NOT! They are NOT human. Read on and find out what they actually are! (I have finally figured it out! Today is April 20, 2022.)
VERSE BY VERSE
In the Bible, there is a detailed description of the two witnesses, so let's take a closer look at that, shall we?
REVELATION, CHAPTER 11
 And I will give power unto my
witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the
bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
- The beast is the RED SUN (a binary star in our solar system).
- The bottomless pit is space. (No pit on Earth is bottomless; ONLY space is bottomless.)
- Learn more about THE RED SUN in the lore of 12 different cultures around our planet.
 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also
our Lord was crucified.
 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Rev. 12:6 The woman: Who is she? There are 3 Theories...
#1: GOD's PEOPLE
THE SERPENT: What does that represent?
Rev. 12:15 The serpent: Who is she?
The serpent is leviathan, which represents the waters, both in the sky and on Earth. See my "Fantastic Beasts of the Bible" page for verification. There is no doubt that parts of the Earth are experiencing precipitation the likes of which we've not seen since Noah's flood. Only this time it will be different. Mother Earth will open up and swallow some of it, meaning that the flooding will be mitigated.
Photo (by me) of "Red Sun" in our skies
Note: Just looking at the photo as is, one can see three satellites orbiting the star. But, if you copy and paste the photo into a viewer and zoom in, you will see a fourth satellite in the ecliptic up to the right of the star.
is this star now?
