Ezekiel’s Fire – The Ultimate Test

We are rapidly approaching that moment in time when we will discover who was right and who was wrong in terms of Bible prophecy. But, as I try to understand what the Bible really says, I’m beginning to see that this is something of a test.

  • If you pass – you live to continue serving God
  • If you fail – you die

Of course, life is full of tests. And, when the Bible speaks of trials, what it really means is that you are being tested. And, there’s a big one coming that you had better pass, because there will be no second chances.

Ezekiel’s Fire – The Ultimate Test

I just finished Chapter Two – yesterday – of Ezekiel’s Fire. And, I am struck by the thought that very few Christians seem to care about The Last Days, and even fewer seem to really look at what the Bible actually says about the Last Days.

I find that to be really, really strange.

More than 28% of the Bible talks about the days that we are living in, right now. And, for most of Christian history, we spent a lot of time trying to figure out what the Last Days were like. But, now that we are living in them, we don’t seem to care.


And, those that DO care about the Last Days, have spent so much time reading what people thought about the Last Days a hundred years ago, that they haven’t taken the time to sit down and read their Bible. If that’s you, I think that it’s time to close the commentary that you are reading and just open your Bible.

Please remember that the commentary that you are probably reading was either written by someone who lived in the 1800s, or was directly influenced by someone from the 1800s. There is just no way that someone a hundred and fifty years ago is going to get eschatology right.

Yes, they’ll get a lot of things right if they are Godly men. But, that doesn’t change the fact that they are like you and me – unable to comprehend what they cannot imagine. I suffer from the same problem, so this is not a critique. But, this inability to comprehend will have serious consequences for you and me.

Why do I say that?

Well, there are three prophets in the Bible that talk about a single point in time. Each of theme have a different viewpoint and add something to our understanding. But, all three of them lead us to a single conclusion:

Massive death and destruction

The problem is that I don’t know of anyone who understands what those prophets are saying. In fact, I don’t know anyone who is saying ANYTHING about it. It’s almost as if everyone has decided that – since it’s so hard to understand – they’ll just ignore that it exists.

The prophets that I am talking about are Isaiah, Ezekiel and Zechariah. And, all three of them are talking about something that would have been impossible to understand a hundred years ago. That ‘something’ is the largest solar flare in the history of the Earth. I call it Ezekiel’s Fire, but it is Isaiah that makes the pieces fall into place.

And, like I said, very few say ANYTHING about this.

Here is what Isaiah said:

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

That verse is so hard to understand that most people claim that it is poetic imagery, or some kind of fantastic miracle.

And, when I google Isaiah 30:26 solar flare, three of the search results on the first page are my own articles.

Why am I one of the few that see this connection?

I am truly amazed by this and very, very unhappy about it. If I am right, at least a billion people will die, and it makes me sick to think of it. But, God has always given us life and death tests. The Bible is full of such examples, and it’s not as if we don’t deserve to fail such a test.

So please, either show me that I’m wrong about Ezekiel’s Fire, or get ready for the biggest solar flare in world history – as well as the death of more than a billion people, along with your own.

Your life hangs in the balance.

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

  1. Thank you John for your work. You are right about those who are just reading other peoples stuff. Take time to read the Word yourself. If a person belongs to Christ they have everything they need right there. That however doesn’t mean that will be all they need. Our Father in heaven knows our needs much better than we.

    One thing that I have simply marveled at is the vast number of people who believe that Word of God is true and yet ignore what it say’s.
    I have always been fascinated by the book of Revelation since receiving my first King James bible in 1967-1970 not sure of the exact date right now but I still open that up with the same wonder as I did then. Thirst.
    The fabric of society is unraveling at an accelerating rate here in the US. (With help of course).

    I don’t know about tomorrow
    I just live from day to day
    I don’t borrow from its sunshine
    For its skies may turn to gray
    I don’t worry o’er the future
    For I know what Jesus said
    And today I’ll walk beside Him
    For He knows what is ahead

    Many things about tomorrow
    I don’t seem to understand
    But I know who holds tomorrow
    And I know who holds my hand

    I don’t know about tomorrow
    It may bring me poverty
    But the one who feeds the sparrow
    Is the one who stands by me
    And the path that be my portion
    May be through the flame or flood
    But His presence goes before me
    And I’m covered with His blood

    This is what I have is the Word.
    I have suspected for some time that the actual source of judgements would come from the sun. Either a solar flare or it;s other effect on the earth.
    Right now this week we are experiencing what I call the Bi-Polar vortex

    I had a comment that I posted for the 20th that had not been published. Was that because of spelling errors and your being gracious to not allow me to embarrass myself?

    • Hi Jeff,

      What a beautiful comment. And, I completely agree.

      Sorry about taking so long to approve comments. My workload sometimes means that it can take a while to answer/post a comment.

      God bless you, brother. Stay warm under that vortex.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  2. You mention in the story three prophets stating same event, however you only give us one reference to actual scripture. what are the other two?

  3. May I suggest another book for you. I am reading Keith R. Blades’ book, “Satan and His Plan of Evil”. It easily explains so much, so easily. I believe that you will enjoy/benefit from it. -Thanksgiving Blessings.

      • John,
        In regard’s to your comment to Jerri. Please consider in Exodus how God put a distinction between his people and the Egyptians when 10 plagues were sent on the land. Since God is the same yesterday and today, will He not also spare his people from the plagues that are to be sent in judgments that are yet to come? I do understand that some of us will die for the testimony of Jesus but that will be at the hand of the wicked, not by the judgment of God. God said “there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” and this has no conditions on it. Not now, not ever – this is the GOOD NEWS!!!!! Can you imagine the testimony someone will have when they do absolutely nothing to preserve their life yet are miraculously spared from a judgment where they see 1000 slain at thy hand and 10,000 slain at thy left hand and realize it was all God’s doing that they are not counted among the dead.

        Thank you for all you do sound the alarm for people to wake up to the truth that Jesus Christ is Lord and there is no other way to avoid eternal destruction accept to have faith in Him.


        • Hi Dave Tremont,

          I understand your point. And that is for those who cannot do for themselves. And, there are many in that situation.

          But, there is a reason why God has put prophecy in the Bible. In fact, God set aside more than 28% of the Bible for prophecy.

          Do you honestly think that it is wise to ignore the warnings that God has preserved in the Bible for 2500 years?

          Do what you think is right, but I will always be careful to heed the warnings that God has given us.

          A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3

          Are you going to be prudent, Dave?

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

  4. The fire should be next summer. The sun in the summer may be 3 to 7 times hotter than normal. However, the fireworks may be in 2016. Check out Renee M’s work on Beforeitsnews.com
    She is very good at explaining things. She believes the rapture will be in September of 2015 and Armageddon in 2016 and that the Day of the Lord will be 1 year long because 1 day = 1 year and 2016 is day 6 or day 7.

      • September on the first sliver of the new moon is what is called Day of Trumpet. The rapture can only occur that day. It can be in the year of Jubilee or even the 9th year according to Isaiah 61:1-2; Leviticus 23:24ff; Lev. 25:9-10, 21-22; Genesis 1:14.
        Website: Jardalkalataol.blogspot.com/2015/9

        http://jardalkalataol.blogspot.com/2015/09/josephs dream egypt and nibiru.html;

        Day of Atonement is Armageddon. Feast of Tabernacles is Millennium/Messianic Kingdom
        Passover is Death of Jesus. Unleavened bread is burial of Jesus. First Fruits is Resurrection of Jesus.
        Pentecost was already taken so that leaves Day of Trumpet for the rapture.
        Leviticus 23 is the redemptive story of Jesus Christ.

        • Why 2017 for possibly Armgeddon.

          Battle of Jerusalem 1917+100=2017; 6th day war 1967+50=2017; Israel became a nation in 1948 1-2 days prior to Pentecost (Matthew 24:32) +70 years (Psalm 90:10)=2017. Abraham’s birth 1947 BCE +2017 years= 70 CE (Destruction of the Temple; Matt 24:1-2)+1947 years =2017.
          Judah ben Samuel Prophecy; Woman clothed with the Sun in 2017 (Day of Trumpet); Giza Pyramid lineup of 2017 (Day of Trumpet).

          Jewish law required two agreeing witnesses to establish a charge (Deut 19:15).

          Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves…when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place…” (Matthew 24:32-35).
          Can we know what is the length of this “generation” that Jesus spoke about?
          And can we know exactly what He meant by the fig tree “putting forth leaves”?
          There are 7 definitions and 7 is the number of completeness.
          1) According to Gen. 6:3 it may be as long as 120 years.
          2) Genesis 15:13, coupled with Gen. 15:16 indicates 100 years.
          3) Psalms 90:10 indicates a possible 80 years.
          4) Psalms 90:10 also indicates a more likely 70 years.
          5) Matthew 1:17 may indicate around 50 years
          6) Psalms 95:10 indicates 40 years.
          7) Deut. 2:14 indicates 38 years.
          2017 – Using ALL 7 generations, based on the premise of ISRAEL being the fig tree Jesus spoke about in the end times:
          1) 2017 counting back a 120 year generation = 1897.
          Significant event: The first ever Zionist congress was held in Basel, Switzerland in 1897 on August 29.
          2) 2017 counting back a 100 year generation = 1917.
          Significant event: The first official political act paving the way for Jews to return to their land was the Balfour Declaration of November 1917.
          3) 2017 counting back a 80 year generation = 1937.
          Significant event: The Peel Commission published a report that for the first time recommended partition of Palestine, and the land under it’s authority be apportioned between an Arab and Jewish state. The plan was declared unimplementable.
          4) 2017 counting back a 70 year generation = 1947.
          Significant event: The United Nations general assembly voted in favour of the Partition Plan that actually created… the State of Israel!
          5) 2017 counting back a 50 year generation = 1967.
          Significant event: The Jews regained Jerusalem, fulfilling“when the fig tree putteth forth leaves.”
          Choosing a 50 year generation requires some explanation. Some people have reckoned on a 50 year generation, starting with 70 using Psalm 90:10 for an average age, and then taking away 20, because those under 20 years old who came out of Egypt were not counted, as mentioned fifteen times in the book of Numbers, Chapter 1.
          6) 2017 counting back a 40 year generation = 1977.
          Significant event: The State of Israel reaches the Jewish “age of maturity.” In the Old Testament Bible, priests could not work in the tabernacle until age 30. See Numbers 4:3.
          This was when they were considered mature. Modern Israel was born in 1947.
          Now do the calculation: 1947 + 30 = 1977.
          “When the fig tree putteth forth leaves” could be considered as another way of saying “when Israel becomes mature.” An example of this maturity is that the Liqud political party came to power in Israel in 1977. The Hebrew word Liqud means ‘The Consolidation’ in English.
          7) 2017 counting back a 38 year generation = 1979.
          Significant event: Israel signs a peace treaty with Egypt. Other than the events already mentioned I’m thinking this would be considered the other most positive historical step towards modern Israel’s expansion, showing “the fig tree putting forth leaves”. It led to many long term benefits, such as providing for the free passage of Israeli ships through the Suez Canal.
          And is 2017 really significant?
          2017 is the Jubilee (per Leviticus 25:9-12 , 50 years)? Counting back to 1967 it is.
          In 1967, Israel gained soverign control over Jerusalem for the first time since the days of King Solomon.
          The above was written by blogger Nicetiming. Heaven Awaits.wordpress.com

          I suggest that 2017 may be Armageddon. The teaching is that the groom can not go to war for one year so the rapture can be the year before on the Day of Trumpet and another teacing is 10 days before Armageddon.

          Do don’t believe in the lie of 7 years of tribulation or pre-trib rapture.

  5. I was in the book of Revelation last night, and I was struck by how much the fall of Babylon sounded like an EMP (or solar flare) NKJV Rev 18:22-23: “The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of the bridegroom and bride shall not be heard any more…” No music, no lights, and no tools for working could just be a lack of electricity, but it sounded a little more final than that. Just a thought.

  6. John, I enjoy your posts…keep up the good work. I see that all of life is a “test” to see if adam (mankind) will keep God’s commandments or not (Mt 4:1-4 / Dt 8:1-3). When you believe in Messiah Yeshua, His Spirit writes His commandments on our heart so we have a desire to keep them (Jer 31:31-33 / Heb 8:8-10)…this is our assurance of salvation…that we have a desire to keep God’s commandments. The problem is that very few see the importance of God’s commandments, the Torah. The Jews have veered off into Mishnah / Talmud and the Christians disavow the need to pursue Torah substituting mental ascent, “faith”, for faithfulness. Yes, you do need to believe that God is…to have “faith” IN Him…but this is not what saves you. You must also BELIEVE God. Gentiles fail to appreciate the significance of being grafted into “true Israel” (Rom 11 / Eph 2). True Israel, today, are those that have faith in Yeshua / Jesus and keep the commandments of God (Rev 14:12).

    • Amen, Aryeh!

      But, please be careful with the Torah. We have been freed from the Torah and are only required to follow the spirit of the Torah – its intentions.

      Observing Shabbat is NOT a requirement.

      Please read Galatians.

      Thank you, Aryeh.

      Yours in Christ,

  7. You forget one factor. Some of us came in early and will be leaving early (we are not really old) even though we do understand a lot (but certainly not all) about Bible prophecy.

    Thanks however for pointing out the solar flare theory. You may be right, then again, it could be an event prepared just for that day that cannot be linked to natural phenomena.

    I question for example, Hal Lindsey’s theory the locusts of Rev 9:7 are helicopter pilots. Why not just take it for it says, they are locusts, prepared for that special day?

    Why could not God prepare a burning out of the sun just for that day, unrelated to solar flares or anything else that men can relate to and understand. Why not a miracle that brings down the final curtain?

    • Hi Willard Aztec,

      I hear you brother.

      Even though I’m freaking out over this Ezekiel’s Fire, I’m really hoping that there is a better explanation that does not include the death of a billion or more people. Unfortunately, I don’t have an interpretation that fits the Bible better than this one.

      Remember that Isaiah 30:26 occurs at the time when Israel is saved. That makes this something that MUST happen before the Tribulation, and there’s not much time between now and then.

      I also understand your point about age. I’m old enough to see that there will come a point in time when I’ll say to those younger to run and leave me behind – although, I have a couple decades to go before I’m ready to say that.

      And yeah… those helicopters… (sigh)

      Thank you Willard. Excellent points.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  8. The Lord does not test us the book of James says so. He does not need to test us because he made us and knows us inside and us. God takes no pleasure in human death. Jesus paid all mankinds debt he passed all the tests!! Many have gone astray and don’t want to follow the Lord and give their lives to Jesus. Not sure where in the bible but it says the works of man would be burned up. Solar flares could very well be Ez.fire.

    • Hi kim singh,

      James is NOT saying that God doesn’t test us. James is saying that God does not test us with Evil. But, we see elsewhere in the Bible that God DOES actively test us – for instance, when David numbered Israel. But, He always does it for our good – for the increase of our faith.

      THAT is what trials and tribulations are all about.

      And… well …the solar flare isn’t about the works of man being burned up. That comes in heaven, or after the Millennium, when we get a new heaven and a new earth.

      Thank you, Kim.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  9. Hi Brother,
    I’ve been studying the Last Days for forty years since my conversion in 1974. You asked for those who see a flaw in your understanding of Isaiah 30:26. I would just say that the context clearly does not point to judgment in this verse. The context is a revelation of how much God will bless His people in the day of their return first from Babylon and also when we are finally saved. The light of the moon and the sun were and are considered great blessings. The sevenfold blessing of light is a picture of blessing not judgment. See Albert Barnes commentary on this point.
    That doesn’t mean I don’t see solar flares in our future. I do. Jesus was clear in Luke 21:25-27 when he described what it would look like when “the powers of heaven are shaken”. The consistency of the sun, moon and earth will all be shaken as described in Isaiah 13 and 24. The rulers of the earth will be like Belshazzar in Babylon on the night of Babylon’s fall when his face went pale and his bowels were loosened. It is at that time that Jesus told us simply to look up and be ready to be rescued by His return.

    • Hi Robert Brown,

      I would dearly love to agree with you, and four years ago… I would have. But, not now. What is seen cannot be unseen.

      Albert Barnes lived and wrote during the 1800s. There is NO WAY that he is going to understand this. And, it was not MEANT for him to understand. This is for us.

      The context of Isaiah 30:26 is salvation AND destruction. Massive-MASSIVE destruction. Remember that ALL the verses that deal with this moment in time must agree, and the only way that they can agree is for there to be a Solar Flare.

      I really wish that it wasn’t so. I really, really do – which is why I’m asking people for an alternative explanation.

      Please understand that applying a symbolic interpretation to what God describes as physical is a dangerous twisting of the Bible. And God is NOT being ‘symbolic’ here.

      Remember that lives are at stake, and God will have something to say to us if we put people in harm’s way by not treating prophecy in a direct manner.

      Thank you, Bob. I really appreciate the comment.

      Yours in Christ,

  10. Hi, with ref. to Isa.30:26 the moon and the sun is not mentioned according to the hebrew which you must make reference to. Moon = Yareach#3394 [Strong’s con]
    Lebanah # 3842/3 = white, bright,the whiteness of clay, etc. [Strong’s…]
    Chammah #2535/2525 = hot, heat, warm. etc. If Yahowah had meant sun and moon He would have used the correct words, after all, they are His. E-Sword is a great tool. The ‘bible’ is replete with copy edits for didn’t “they” write out our Father’s name 7000 times? I wonder why. Kind regards, Graham.
    PS. There is no such thing in ‘scripure’ as LAW or Commandments. Towrah is teaching and instructions. How can anyone command someone to love them? Try it with your wife or whoever. Hope this gives you food for thought.

    • Hi Graham,

      As a Hebrew speaker, I understand that the common usage for Moon is YaReh-ach. In fact, I could play all kinds of games with the wording. For instance, the word for ‘light’ (ohr) is also the word for skin, or leather. And, I could go on to do all KINDS of twisting.

      But, that is not what God wants us to do. He wants us to understand His warning.

      Please, let’s read our Bible and connect what we read with the rest of the Bible.

      Thank you, Graham.

      Yours in Christ,

  11. Hi John, as a physicist i can agree with your theory, part of my Bsc Applied physics was astrophysics in1987, i studied the maths of supernova and black holes men like chandrashaka,it is hard to comprehend the energy releases of a star,even a small star like our sun we can talk of so many hydrogen bombs as a measure of output but this only covers part of the story.We cannot determine the time,focus, or intensity of what may be a multiplicity of events, YHVH may give time for repentence,but death for the righteous and the wicked will come, if anyone is left alive they will be physically and mentally scared by what came upon the earth,no prepping will secure you against this it is beyond all imagination except for the mind of the creator, this will just be the fury of his creation let loose by him,think about his own personal fury against mankind when he returns.

    • Hi Beano,

      Ezekiel said it here:

      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

      And Zechariah said it here:

      In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. – Zechariah 12:4

      Although Zechariah doesn’t speak of a ‘fire’, the description fits the effects of a Class Z Solar Flare – if you understand what ‘horses’ are.

      Thank you, Beano.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  12. You wrote: There is just no way that someone a hundred and fifty years ago is going to get eschatology right.
    Jesus said: John 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
    Jesus said: John 16:13 “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.

    What is it about the word “all” that you don’t understand?
    Where does it say “all things” except those of the last times?

    When in the search for truth we must go to Scripture, the source of truth. Jesus said, My word is TRUTH and the truth will set you free.

    • Hi Mike,

      So, I guess that these men weren’t led by the Holy Spirit.. or …maybe the Holy Spirit just didn’t choose to reveal it to them. Maybe they weren’t saved. Maybe they were trying to fit what they saw in the world around them, with what they see in the Bible.

      Pick the explanation that fits for you.

      One think is completely clear, however. Very few commentaries written in the 1800s have eschatology right. I certainly haven’t come across any that interpreted it correctly.

      Furthermore, if you believe that you have the Holy Spirit, why are you reading a commentary, instead of the Bible?

      Are you saying that you DON’T have the Holy Spirit?

      Are you elevating a man above God?

      Mike, please be careful.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  13. JOHN,read Lisa’s visions,staring at the bottom of the page,ITS true I’ve seen the same things as her…..the new world will be wonderful for those that make it………thecallofthebride.com/lisa-s-vision……everyone needs to read this………

    • Hi Arizona,

      I’m afraid that I don’t have the time to go through all that she wrote, but I agree that there will be places in the world that will be so destroyed… well …those who make it will have a kind of paradise.

      I’ve actually thought about that, myself.

      But, a lot of agonizing death and destruction will come before it, I’m afraid. And very few are paying attention.

      Thank you, Arizona. Great comment.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  14. I wonder why you place the time of this fire BEFORE the beginning of the DAY OF THE LORD?
    A review of my study of scripture:
    Re 16:8-9 And the fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given to it to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues; and they did not repent, so as to give Him glory.
    Is this not the same event prophesied by Isaiah?
    What scripture supports them being separate events?
    Yet the bowl judgements of Revelation are clearly part of God’s wrath upon unrepentant men, the Day of the Lord. And in fact they are the grand final of that Day of judgement.
    Paul wrote that there were two events that must first occur BEFORE the beginning of the Day of the Lord. [II Thess 2] apostasy and revelation of the Man of Sin, Antichrist.
    Paul also wrote that the Day of the Lord starts after the gathering of the elect by the angels. [both events on the same day, in my understanding of Matt 24: 29-31]
    So, unless the fire in the sun is more than one event, which is unlikely, in my view, since the fire in Rev is part of God’s Day of wrath, which the elect are exempt from.

    The context of Isaiah 30:26 is God’s judgement for Israel’s rejection of the Messiah
    Is 30:15 “But you were not willing”
    Matt 23:37 “and you were unwilling.”
    Therefore you will not see me until I return as King Matt23:39, Is 30:27-28, Rev 19:11-16


    • Hi Mike,

      I’m afraid that you are quite incorrect. Read what I said here:


      Furthermore, you have missed the proper context of Isaiah 30. Here it is again:

      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 find it curious that you also missed this verse:

      And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. – Isaiah 30:18

      When reading the Bible, context is vital. If you don’t get the context, you will not get the Bible. And, without the Bible, you will be a false teacher.

      False teachers never end well.

      Thank you, Mike.

      Yours in Christ,

  15. You could not be more right about people not knowing or seeming to care about the scriptures in even our Christian circles. The book of Isaiah itself is a test and is a sealed book to those who ask not and are not lead by the Lord to understanding. Isaiah 30:26 needs to be read in context as it’s a verse talking about those whom the Lord is healing, “binding up”, and bringing together during the times of great destruction where the wicked are destroyed and the righteous are preserved by His hand. The increase in light is in reference to His people ascending spiritually from a lower spiritual group or plane, represented by the moon (those whose faith and light are dim and in similitude of the stars or worse being likened to Babylon in Isaiah will not survive), to a higher represented by the sun, and those who are likened unto the sun expanding as those who are lead and preserved by faith in these times grow closer and closer to their Lord and Savior, who guides their every move and without whom there is no deliverance from the destruction. There is also other layered meaning in the verse but for most it would be far too incredible to believe to the point of laughing to scorn anyone who had the audacity to voice it. Such is the spiritual state of the unbelieving in these last days.

    • Hi Caveman,

      I truly wish that I could agree with you.

      It appears that your interpretation is straight out of popular commentaries written more than a hundred years ago, by well-meaning brothers in Christ.

      However, spiritualizing what is meant to be physical is a dangerous thing. Worse, by lending your support to such a mistake, you lead to others making the same mistake.

      Please understand that the price for getting this verse wrong is an agonizing, terrifying death – for yourself and all who you convinced.

      Far worse than that, God will confront you in the life to come with this sin – and yes, it is a sin – and you will suffer the consequences for it.

      It is clear to me that Isaiah 30:26 is a description of a physical Sun and a physical Moon. And, I will act accordingly.

      So, you had better be sure, Caveman. Lives are at stake.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  16. I believe the three prophets are all pointing to Revelation chapter16 verses 8 & 9. It is very possible you are correct “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun”. But this happens during the great tribulation. Which is at least 3 1/2 years away.

  17. Mr. Little, I’m always reminded of Job 7:17-21 being the only verses humans are allowed to speak against angels or even God. They are summed up as “Why?”, but we are even not allowed to say that, according to Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News, humans are only allowed to ask “When?”.

    Our entire lives are indeed tests, as Job chapter 1 states, and Hezekiah in 2 Chronicles 32:31. Our “testing period” ends only at death, to be followed by reward or reproach, and even then we can only beg for the court’s mercy at the Great White Throne Judgement. We are treated like the sinners we are, yet we have been made spiritually deaf and blind by Adam’s legacy and our own confirmation, and never allowed to see and hear on our own. That is the “unfairness” people cry out about, and a great mystery.

    All we can do is obey God’s commandments, love Him as a child, and endure the continual testing.

    • Hi jhpace1,

      Great points.

      Um… but …I don’t understand your point about Job 7:17-21. So, I’m obviously missing something.

      And, we CAN ask why from God. We just aren’t allowed to demand an answer. We are to be humble before our righteous God.

      Thank you, JHP.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  18. John
    Having grown up in the 60’s and 70’s and experienced an “end times ” – Jesus People, (I actually had an opportunity to meet and speak with Duane Peterson) surge, I have a theory. Many of my friends and a Pastor of the church I used to go to, have expressed to me that they got it wrong/ were “burned”, back then. These are studied people. The recent explosion of watchers on the wall, is just “this generations reaction to changes in their world”. They don’t believe that these are end times. I think they don’t want to get burned again. They aren’t about to go out on a limb and admit what could well be going on.

    • Hi Marty Cherrie,

      We’ve seen this a lot – in almost every generation. And, I think that this is by Satanic design. After all, he’s made MANY attempts at a New World Order.

      We also see this in those who prepared for Y2K. They got laughed at, and they don’t want to go through that again.

      I actually HOPE that I get laughed at. It would be a profound relief to be so wrong. It’s one of the reasons why I am calling for someone to give me a clear-cut alternative that ties up all the loose-ends better than the interpretation that I see.

      I really, REALLY want to be wrong. In fact, I am desperately hoping to be wrong. But, I cannot afford to ignore what seems so clear.

      God bless you, Marty. I hope to see you on the other side of all this.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  19. People and the world itself are fragile, easily destroyed by things like meteors, comets, solar flares..etc. All the living creatures proceeded into the Ark while God HELD the pending catastrophe ‘in check’ until He Himself ‘shut’ the door. Noah did NOT shut it. God did. God will hold things ‘in check’ until everyone gets born-again who are fore-ordained to…..”..and the dsiciples came dragging the net full of assorted fishes, and for all there were so many, yet was not one lost..”…2 Thess….He who holds fast, will hold fast until He be taken out of the way. The Holy Spirit holds fast and the Holy Spirit will be taken away AT THE RAPTURE…..I trust Paul’s word on this–whole heartedly…..a day for God’s wrath IS COMING, but Christians are not part of that day, having been caught away by Christ Himself……as Paul says, “Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

  20. You might have be the only person referencing Is. 30., but the solar flare
    has been referenced many times by Major Ed Dames. He calls it the “Kill Shot”.
    Look him up. He doesn’t relate it to scripture, but you might find his work interesting.

    • Hi dan-o,

      Ed Dames consorts with demons and devils. And, I will have no part in what he talks about.

      This is only confirmation that Satan himself knows what is coming. But, you should NEVER listen to what Satan – or his minions – say.

      And yes, Ed Dames is a minion of Satan.

      Thank you, Dan.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  21. Not sure how you arrive at how this verse (Isaiah 30:26) refers to a solar flare? It is clear that the increase in the brightness of the sun and moon occur in a day when the Lord heals the breach that separates God’s people from himself. Not the death of a billion or more people.

  22. John, that the solar flare will be a momentous, spectacular, terrible event, there is no doubt. However, in reading our way thru the seals , trumpets and vials of Revelation chapters 6-16, it appears that the first mention of the solar flare is at the fourth vial in Rev. 16:8-9. This puts it further off, relatively speaking, than other big events. Not counting the destruction of Damascus (Isa. 17:1), there are other things that seem to have have to happen first: e.g., locusts stinging mark-of-the-beast-takers ( Rev. 9::3-6), the army of “two hundred thousand thousand” that will slay 1/3 of mankind (Rev. 9:15), noisome and grievous sores” upon mark-takers (Rev. 16:2), all life in the oceans dying (Rev. 16:3), rivers and other waters becoming blood (Rev. 16:4). If the Lord brings us through all these things, then I have no doubt He will see us through the solar flare too. He will be our asbestos suit.
    It sure is good to know Jesus through the power of the Holy Ghost. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be much reason to want to live in these frightening times.

    • Hi john varner,

      Just because there is a description in Revelation 16:8 describing the fourth angel pouring his vial upon the sun… that doesn’t mean that THIS is the same event.

      You MUST look at the context of Isaiah 30. Here is the context:

      …in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound – Isaiah 30:26b

      Is God going to do that at the END of the Tribulation? Really?

      No. God does NOT play games. And, when you look at all the verses in the Bible that speak about Israel’s return to God, it is NOT during or after the Tribulation.

      You can read about all that, here:


      All of that is BEFORE the Tribulation. You must get that right, or you will suffer the consequences. And, I do NOT want that to happen to you.

      Please be careful, John. I do NOT want to see you hurt.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  23. actually i am married to the most beautiful woman on the planet… while its true that traditional christianity and rabbinic judaism don’t mix, all bondservants of Yahshua the messiah know that our faith was once considered to be a sect of judaism .aka “the way” …check out hebroots.com to understand at least the timing of these events. shalom y’all

    • Hi kona kahuna,

      I keep telling the women in my classes that they should never marry a man who does not think that she’s the most beautiful woman in the world. They always look at me cynically when I say that, but it’s still true that when a man truly loves a woman… she really is the most beautiful in the world.

      So, it is wonderful that you love your wife so much that you think that she’s the most beautiful woman in the world.

      Now, for a more serious note…

      Kona, please stay away from the Hebrew Roots movement. It is good that they love the Jewish people. But, they are consulting Talmud as an aid to interpreting the Bible and that is a sin.

      I have lived among the Jews in Jerusalem for 15 years, and I have orthodox Jews who are friends of mine. And, I can tell you that what they believe and follow is absolute paganism.

      Please. You must get this right:

      The Jews are PAGANS.

      They do NOT worship God because they have rejected Christ. And any who do not worship God are by definition, Pagan and in thrall to Satan.

      Please do not be led astray, Kona. Following the Hebrew Roots movement will bring judgment upon you – as will happen to any who mix idolatry with their worship of God.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  24. I read Solar Flare by Larry Burkett. It was a fictional novel inspired by that scripture I believe. It at least started my wheels turning on the topic. It’s been awhile since I read it…but I think it was written in the 1990 ‘s or just after 2000. If anybody is interested.

    It was an interesting add-on back when a I was a ‘newborn’. 😉 I can’t remember at the moment if Burkett brings up any pre, mid, or post rapture elements or not. However, I did like reading about what the survivors went through as a result of the Flare.

    • Hi Erin,

      Your comment sent me on an interesting chase. I’d heard of Larry Burkett, from a financial point of view (he died more than ten years ago), but I didn’t know about the fiction that he had written.

      Apparently, he DID NOT believe in a pretrib rapture. Interesting.

      Thank you, Erin. It’s nice to know of others who’ve thought of this before me.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  25. Hi John I was having a debate about mark of the beast comment by John MacArthur which I don’t agree with and my friend said you have to have the mark and worship the beast so you can have the mark but not worship the beast so you are ok. In my Jerusalem Bible it says worship the beast or have the mark and all my other 9 translations all say worship the beast and have the mark so you have to have both. Would you be able to shed some light on this please. David Hill

  26. 1. Did you feel Gods Spirit tell you this ???
    2. What are 2 alternatives it could mean ?
    3. How much of earth would a flare that size hit and wipe out ?
    4. Did you think it through … could the rest of prophecy still happen if that hit ???

  27. That verse in Isaiah says it will happen on the day God heals Israel’s wound and binds up the breach of its people. If the solar flare theory is correct, Israel would have to be shielded from it, while wiping out all the enemies on their borders and having infiltrated the nation itself. Wouldn’t be the first time God did something strange, but is there any other interpretation besides a solar flare …… as I tried to comment on the Ezekiel website (are the comments enabled yet?) but can’t find – what I have read about solar flares is that they are bursts of radiation, detectable by special instruments, but not visible light. Which is not to say God cannot invent a new kind of solar flare. Does this verse describe the same event as the one in Rev where the sun scorches people terribly and they still don’t repent, but curse God? Is it the same event as people with the mark getting sores from it?? Wouldn’t that mean, by default, that if you were still on the planet and had not taken the mark, you would not get sores???

    Curiouser and curiouser.

    • Hi DRG,

      Actually, Israel will NOT be shielded from it. But, God will intervene to save the survivors. When you read Zechariah 13:8, you see that 2/3rds of Israelis die – mostly, I think, from the invasion. But, I think, also from the flare.

      As far as visibility goes, what you are talking about are the M-class and X-class flares. The Z-class – and yes there really is a Z-class – flares CAN be seen with the naked eye. The 1859 solar flare – the Carrington Event – was seen by Richard Carrington without special instrumentation, other than a rudimentary solar viewer. The difference here will be the length of time this flare will be in effect – as well as the much greater size.

      And this will NOT be according to any of the events described in Revelation. Although, some of the events will happen during one of the seals.

      This is about the salvation of Israel that will be YEARS BEFORE the Great Tribulation – not during or after.

      Yep. No sores. And, you would live during the Millennium.

      Sorry about no comments. It’s going to be like that until the Lord changes my mind.

      Thank you, DRG.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  28. John, I’ve found EZEKIAL’S FIRE fascinating! And informative! (I’ve read all 5).

    Something bothers me.

    Rev.6;8…and 12 thru 17: (verse 8 MIGHT be revealing the releasing of these 4 horsemen’s influence in the “last days”, but I think not. I tend to see them as released over a LONG period of MANY years, until the 4th is released.

    Then, I see interesting terminology in verses 12 – 17: “the 6th Seal…a great earthquake, the SUN BECAME BLACK AS SACKCLOTH OF HAIR, and the moon became as blood.”

    THEN, Ver.13 “the stars fall from heaven, unto the Earth…”? …”the heaven departed as a scroll…”? [Is this the “heavens shall pass away…the elements shall melt with fervent heat…” that II Peter refers to in verse 10?]

    I think that there’s a bit more to be studied here…

    Now, [verse 17]: “the GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH is come…”. And the terminology of Chapter 8:12 (which is during the “TRUMPET SOUNDING” period], “And the fourth Angel sounded, and the 3rd part of the Sun was smitten, and the 3rd part of the moon, and the 3rd part of the stars, so as the 3rd part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a 3rd part of it, and the night likewise.”

    Clearly, (during the Tribulation Trumps), the sun’s heat is NOT extreme, but quite the opposite.

    When we look at the “VIALS of WRATH” period: [Rev. 16:8 – 9], we see a description that ACTUALLY FULFILLS “Ezekiel’s Fire” as described by Isaiah 30:26.


    So, here’s what I’m thinking…

    The massive, horrendous, Solar flare “Ezekiel’s fire”, (as you term it), WILL occur, just as Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Zechariah prophesied. Only, it WON’T be during the “TRUMPETS SOUNDING” period, but RATHER, in the “VIALS of WRATH” period, which is AFTER the “gathering together” / “rapture”.

    Just some thoughts…Let me know what you think. btw, I’n not writing this necessarily to be posted, but specifically to get your reaction. I CERTAINLY do NOT wish to begin a debate, but rather just sharing my thoughts. No matter how you respond, I’ll definitely continue monitoring OMEGA SHOCK, it’s a GREAT inspiration.

    There’s not much more that we can do but PRAY & PREPARE, as it PROBABLY won’t be long before we KNOW / SEE what is going to happen, and when.

    • Hi Christian Gains,

      I don’t mind controversy on this site, and I certainly don’t mind disagreement on points that do not affect your survival. But, a rigid attitude that will lead to your death is VERY upsetting to me. VERY.

      I do NOT like to see people die due to a misconception.

      As to your comment, many have been making the connection with the vials of Revelation 16, but I must disagree. Ezekiel’s Fire happens LONG before the Tribulation. And, my best guess is that it will come within the next four years, and the Tribulation will be seven to ten years after that. While, on the other hand, the vials are AFTER the Tribulation.

      This is what has gotten me so forceful. Ezekiel’s Fire is coming soon, and you will be caught by it, if you expect the Tribulation to come first.

      I hope that you see that this really is a life and death issue.

      Thank you, Christian. I appreciate your input.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  29. As a regular to this sight I also delight in some of the comments as they are thoughtful and edifying but recommending other websites,books etc. is counterproductive.As followers of Jesus Christ and filled with the Holy Ghost,the written word or personal experience is of the greatest blessing.As is said the night is far spent and we NEED to seek his face get on our knees and pray daily for discernment (which is one of the reasons I frequent this site) the message of living in the present and preparing for what is surely coming is my purpose.I always notice one factor in the teaching of the rapture that it must be propagated by other sources and not the Holy Scriptures and I pray that fellow believers search out the word and obey that..That post above by Jeff was wonderful And thanx again John for making these sites possible and for me to ramble…

  30. Hi John, you say: The problem is that I don’t know of anyone who understands what those prophets are saying. In fact, I don’t know anyone who is saying ANYTHING about it. It’s almost as if everyone has decided that – since it’s so hard to understand – they’ll just ignore that it exists.

    I have been writing articles and posting on forums for the past 4+ years, warning that The Lord’s Day of wrath will be a massive CME. Fire from the sky is prophesied 70 times and the other effects of this CME as prophesied, will literally come to pass. But because those who agree with that premise can be counted on the fingers of one hand, there is no doubt that God’s veil of misunderstanding is drawn over all who hold to false teachings. Isaiah 29:9-12
    Please check my website for how the Lord will bring on His judgement.

    • Amen, Bruce McKerras!

      I was sent on a chase through the Internet by a previous comment, and stumbled over your site just hours before I saw your comment here.

      All that I can say is WOW!

      I also saw that we were both in Israel, at the same time, in 2010. We were there from February to November. In Jerusalem.

      If you attended Jerusalem Assembly, you and I were both in the same room. I might even have shaken your hand. Who knows.

      Anyway, I saw from what you wrote that you have a firm grasp of what is coming upon us. In fact, you understood the Solar Flare part LONG before I did, and that is awesome.

      I will be reading your e-books in more detail in the future.

      God bless you, Bruce. Keep up the good work, brother.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  31. John – Greetings – The social status of churches in my area are more concerned about what it takes to get things done in and out of church then to be concerned about solar flares. Plus sharing this would cause FEAR and many wouldn’t be able to handle this news. I can tell when the sun has sent off a EMP because it gets very windy here at the lake. Preparations for solar flares should be water, food and a close relationship with Jesus Christ. Once it happens being there to help others who may just need your assistance is all that can be done. I would hope that my house is a Safe house so to speak because of being on the lake and having a wood burning fireplace inside. Blessings…….

  32. My thoughts about the verse seems to tell me that the Lord is turning up the sun to protect his elect. ” Heal their wound” from something that doesn’t like UV rays, possibly a bio weapon. In the days of Noah, satan was moving against the inevitable coming of Christ by corrupting the seed of man, God flooded the world to wipe the corrupted genetic slate clean to fulfill scripture, to keep the lineage of Abraham pure so Christ could be pure, and save the world from the sting of death. This time around satan knows his time is short, and he sends the beast with wroth ( rage ? ). If satan is going down he’s going out with a scorched earth policy.(bio weapon) God intervenes to protect his elect. Though intervening has ramifications of its own, just as the flood had ramifications. Just my thoughts.

    • Hi weary,

      Interesting thought. Very. I will add it to my own personal list.

      For myself, I see this also as an opportunity to ‘knock back’ the Beast System so that it needs to spend time rebuilding, instead of harassing the new Christians in Israel – as THEY spend time maturing in Christ.

      But, the idea of sterilizing the area where there has been a bio-weapon release had not occurred to me. So, I will try to keep it in mind. Unfortunately, I have a TERRIBLE memory, so remind me should I forget!

      God bless you, Weary. It’s good to have your input.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Hi Chrs,

      I’m sorry. I got so wrapped up in what I wanted to say and forgot to put in the OTHER key verse. It’s this one:

      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

      Thank you, Chrs.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  33. Thank you for your faithfulness! I truly enjoy and look forward to your column daily. I agree that the U.S is going to suffer a terrible judgement soon. And I also agree that most Christians should be seeking asylum in a safe haven. However my personal discernment is not (at this time) telling me to leave. The Holy Spirit is guiding me to stay and minister to the survivors. Have you heard of any others being called to stay? I don’t feel that I am allowing personal feelings about relocating to sway my decision. I have spent much time in Central America and would leave in a heart beat if that was my calling.

    • Hi Joe D.,

      Thank you. It is wonderful to hear that what God has placed upon my heart is a blessing. I certainly would NOT be able to do this without the Lord’s direction and hand.

      I have heard of many who have sought the Lord and have also been guided to stay. And, I respect such decisions highly. You are choosing to face an uncertain future to minister to the needs of those who will be in great need.

      Joe, God bless you brother. It is great to know that you are out there, seeking to serve God will all of your being.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  34. I still live in the heart of Bablyon and I don’t really think most “Christians” will get it. They will continue to leave their blinders on, watching football, eating their fast food, purchasing all the stuff they “really need” and can’t live without on borrowed money, from their credit cards they can no longer afford anyway to impress a bunch of people they don’t even like or know (neighbors and family). All the while, our Christian brothers throughout the Middle East, North Korea, China, Muslim Africa, and about everywhere else are getting murdered, kicked around, raped, etc, but God won’t allow His children to EVER suffer persecution. That’s why, we, as Christians, don’t have to worry about all this Tribulation and End Time’s stuff. God will rapture us before the Antichrist comes to power and starts knocking heads! We’ll just keep watching Dancing With the Stars, voting for the lesser of two evils in the upcoming elections, and borrowing money from China to fund our War on Terror, Drugs, Poverty, etc, etc, etc, until Jeebus’ comes back to save us from god’s wrath! Or did I get that confused with the wrath of Satan prior to His Wrath at the end of the Tribulation?! Maybe I just need to put down my Bible and go watch some wrasslin’? Thanks for the posts John.

    This is enlightening!

    The most important part!
    They worship allah! (Or: allah (or Mahdi), buddah, kabbalistic jewish (masonic) mashiach (messiah) etc…… are all the same god to them. it’s the roman sun g-d. has had many names – zeus, jupitor, Osiris, buddah, allah, etc…. study proves they are all the same!

    Moral of the story?!
    The AC will be – the Mashiach (to the Kabbalist), the Mahdi (To the muslims), buddah – to the Buddist etc…… they all worship the same pagan (fallen) god/s

    But showed that UFO and alien came on earth and saved people
    Showed that they already noticed people
    Showed just their lies
    But never mentioned what exactly in bible is
    Thank u dear John

  37. Hello John,
    We missed you and hope all is well…. Lord knows you need rest and a time alone with family. God bless you and keep you so close to His heart… You do so much for us John!

    • Hi Ray,

      Thank you for that comment. I deeply appreciate it.

      I’m sorry that I need to slow things down on Omega Shock. But, Ezekiel’s Fire is so horrendous and far too close for me to delay any further. And yes, I have procrastinated on this. I should have gotten it done over the Summer, and I did other stuff, instead.

      Lots of good came out of that ‘other stuff’, but it still doesn’t change the fact that I could have been much farther ahead in my writing, than I am now.

      Thank you, Ray. I’m glad to have you as a reader.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  38. I believe it could be scalar weaponry & the magnetosphere manipulation (HAARP, TTA etc). The earths magnetic poles, are in the natural process of flipping again (south Atlantic anomaly, which would also explain a lot of what is described in Revelations. (1/3rd of the trees & grass & sea life dies etc.) The powers that be, can short circuit the earths magnetic protection at anytime (and control weather, mind & matter) but I think that they will wait until a multiple planned/awaited coinciding of major events; solar flares, magnetic pole shift, glacial rebound/ring of fire awakening, possible major planetary body effecting it all(…that was around at the time of the Great Flood.) God bless, regardless we have no fear, but fear of our Almighty Lord. Shalom

    • Hi Cindy Farmer,

      I’m not sure.

      If Nibiru does indeed exist, then it might play a part in destabilizing the interior of the Sun and therefore in causing the Solar Flare.

      Just please remember that most astronomical objects within the Solar System have been discovered by amateur astronomers out late at night with their telescopes. If Nibiru is really out there, it will be THOSE amateur astronomers who will tell us.

      Thank you, Cindy.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
