There are other prophecies that we could add to our Prophecy Clock. We could also take a harder look at what happens during the Tribulation, but I’m not sure how accurate we would be. And, I’m not sure that the exercise would be useful. Once we get to the Tribulation, we’re pretty much stuck where we are.
The biggest challenge that we have, right now, is envisioning what is going to happen before we even GET to the Tribulation. It’s mind-blowing. It’s beyond anything that we can comprehend because no one has ever experienced such a massive catastrophe. And, when we look around ourselves, we see a world that seems to work pretty well.
The problem is… that deep down… we really don’t believe that any of what we see will actually change. But, the Bible promises ‘sudden destruction’ (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
[UPDATE FROM 2022: I guess that those dates weren’t as good as I thought. Nor was the need to rush out and teach English in East Asia. Of course, extreme outcomes often require an extreme response, but still… those dates. – JL]

Prophecy Clock – Timeline – Finale
There are two verses that refer to the exact, same moment in time:
Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound. – Isaiah 30:26
And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord. – Ezekiel 39:6
Those two verses talk about EXACTLY the same moment in time. Exactly.
I’ve made the connection before, but it somehow slipped my mind. Now that it’s come back into focus… well, I’m going to bang this drum until it breaks. There is just no way that the Sun will shine seven times brighter without this being a solar flare, and a Solar Flare IS fire.
Deadly Wound in Revelation 13
I also now believe that these two passages lay the groundwork for Revelation 13. I encourage you to read that whole chapter because it talks about what will be happening AFTER this Solar Flare.
That Solar Flare will cause a death blow to occur to one of the seven heads of the seven-headed beast of Revelation:
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. – Revelation 13:3
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. – Revelation 13:12
Ooops. I think that was a hornet’s nest that I just kicked over. So, I guess that I need to talk about what/who these seven heads are.
What Are These Heads?
You have to go to Revelation 17 for this, because THAT is where the seven headed beast is explained. Remember that this beast has Seven Heads, Seven Crowns and Ten Horns. Here are the passages:
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. – Revelation 17:9-12
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. – Revelation 12:3
There are three things here:
- 7 Heads
- 7 Crowns
- 10 Horns
The angel explaining all this to John said that those three things are:
- 7 Mountains
- 7 Kings
- 10 Kingdomless Kings
Now, we have to ask this question:
What was wounded?
Was a crown wounded?
No. A head.
Are the heads and the crowns the same?
No. The heads are mountains. The crowns are kings.
Were any of the crowns wounded/damaged?
No. Just the head.
So, what are these heads/mountains?
They could be continents or empires. There are seven continents in the world, and that would seem to fit, except… well, two of those continents… Antarctica and Australia… don’t really fit. Australia doesn’t really have that many people on it (sorry, Australia!) and Antarctica is completely barren (sorry, penguins!).
The Head Could Be Empires
They could be empires.
But… um… WHICH empires?
There have been MANY empires. Just look at the list.
Daniel 2 Empires
However, there is the great image in Daniel 2. I won’t go into an in-depth discussion, except to say that the Great Image describes a succession of empires:
- Golden Head
- Silver Chest and Arms
- Brass Belly and Thighs
- Iron Legs
- Clay/Iron Feet
That’s five, Okay, let’s see if we can get seven out of all that:
- Head – Babylon
- Chest – Persian Empire
- Belly/Thighs – Alexander’s Empire
- Legs – Roman and Byzantine Empires?
- Feet – ??
Interesting problem that we have here. The two feet and ten toes could be the European empires that cropped up, along with the Russian and Ottoman empires. And, we should throw in the current American Empire.
Can you see the problem that we have here?
We’re having trouble fitting all these empires into Daniel’s Great Image.
However, notice what happens to the Great Image:
Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. – Daniel 2:34
The stone (Jesus) smites the image at the feet and destroys the image. That certainly happens when Jesus returns, which means that we have a direct correlation with Revelation.
Do we have seven heads here?
Well, we have five levels – gold, silver, brass, iron and iron reinforced clay. But, the last two, the legs and feet, are divided into two.
Does this mean that we have seven?
VERY good question, and I don’t know that we can say that. We could be talking about continents, even though I was fairly dismissive of that idea. After all, the heads are described as mountains, and a continent is a bit like a mountain. I just don’t know how a continent can be ‘wounded unto death’.
But, let’s let that thought simmer a bit as we get back to the literally burning question.
Back To Ezekiel’s Fire
When the fire of Ezekiel 39:6 rains down, it’s going to take out Russia and Europe. The question that we are talking about now is whether it will also take out the US. I believe that it will, but you will have to decide for yourself.
However, I’m prepared to say that if it doesn’t, China and Russia will be prepared to ‘take out’ the US themselves. Quite a few Godly men have had visions of nuclear attack, and I could see how that would happen. If I was China or Russia, I wouldn’t want America to get out of this unscathed.
Get To East Asia
The point that I am trying to make here is that you need to get out of the US. When you see Gog and Magog preparing to attack Israel, you need to get on the first plane to East Asia. Go to Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, China, Korea, Japan or Taiwan. If you need to borrow money to do it, do it.
If you have to sell everything that you have and go into debt, do it. But, you MUST get out. But, that’s advice for those of you who like doing things at the last minute.
I think waiting for the last possible moment is a really bad idea. It is more than possible that the gate to freedom will close long before then. Anything could happen.
That’s why I strongly encourage you to take steps now.
Do you have a useful skill? Can you teach English?
Go to Southeast Asia, Taiwan or China.
Want to be a student again?
Go get your first/second/third degree at a university in Australia or New Zealand. Student visas can let you stay for years at a time – as long as you are studying.
Have you thought about learning Chinese?
I know plenty of folks who have student visas for the purpose of learning Mandarin.
Maybe you could get a student loan?
Start looking for opportunities NOW in East Asia. You never know what might pop up. God doesn’t want you to be caught by the cataclysm that’s coming.
For Those Who Cannot Leave
Now, there are some of you who cannot leave. I completely understand that. This means preparing for a Mad Max existence. Water, food and security will be non-existent. You must be ready for this, and that means looking for a community of people that are prepared to wait out the storm.
Please understand that this ‘storm’ will be REALLY bad, and you will need as much help as you can to survive. This means good neighbors and a strong community.
There are prepper groups all over the US, so you should be able to find one in your area. If you can’t find one, move to where you can.
Even better, relocate to the American Redoubt. Start looking for jobs out there. Your family won’t like it, but they’ll thank you when they realize that you’ve just saved their lives.
Ezekiel’s Fire IS Coming
The point is that Isaiah 30:26 and Ezekiel 39:6 are coming, and you need to do something about that. If it means selling everything you have and escaping with a small suitcase – then do that. God does not want us to suffer the judgment that is coming. And yes, we deserve judgment for the sins and the blasphemy that we have committed against Him.
Are you ready for this?
