An In-depth Study of Revelation 8 2nd Trumpet Judgment


An in-depth study on the Second Trumpet Judgment of Revelation 8
     Since the book of Revelation can be taken either being literal or figuratively, then the symbols will be gathered from E-sword dictionaries and commentaries using the words of the interpreters such as fire meaning war.

   The first four shofar/trumpet judgments affect nature directly and people indirectly (compare Mat_24:4-8) and resemble the plagues of Egypt (see Psa_105:29, Psa_105:32), while the last three plagues (Rev_8:13) affect people directly (compare Mat_24:13-22).
    The idea that the End-Time plagues will recapitulate those of Egypt can be found in the Midrash Rabbah:
   " 'Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail such as has not been in Egypt from the day it was founded until now' (Exo_9:18).... However, there will be one like it in the time to come. When? In the days of Gog and Magog, as it is written, ... 'A torrential rain, and great hailstones, fire and sulfur' (Eze_38:2, Eze_38:22)." (Exodus Rabbah 12:2)

Compare at Revelation 11:19, 16:21, 20:7.
    Consider the function of the Egyptian plagues. The well-known song, "Dayenu" ([It would have been] "Enough for us"), from the Passover Haggadah, says that God through the plagues judged both the Egyptians and their gods (compare Rev_9:20). He did this by turning against the Egyptians the very things they worshipped. They worshipped the Nile River; it became blood. They worshipped beetles (scarabs); they got lice and locusts. They worshipped frogs and found them in bed. They worshipped the weather and had their crops destroyed by hail.

    If these verses in Revelation are to be understood literally, then, since God uses nature to accomplish his purposes, one can imagine asteroids plunging into the earth, other materials from outer space darkening the skies and infecting the water, and heat flashes setting fire to the vegetation; and one can seek scientific explanations for such phenomena. But if these are graphic but figurative ways of describing God's judgment and the terror it will evoke, such speculations and researches are irrelevant. There are intelligent, well-informed, God-fearing New Testament scholars taking each approach.

Rev 8:8.  And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain (Jer 51:25) burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
and as: Jer_51:25; Mar_11:23; burning: Amo_7:4
the third: Rev_8:7, Rev_16:3-21; Exo_7:17-21; Eze_14:9

    The word mountain can refer to a group of people such as a kingdom (Jer_51:25, Jer_51:27, Jer_51:30, Jer_51:58); an asteroid or comet; a volcanic eruption; or things representing authority (Matt. 17:20) such as a government. “The stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth,” Daniel 2:35. Compare Zechariah 4:7; Jeremiah 51:25.

    "Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do what is done to the fig tree, but even if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea, it shall be done" (Mat 21:21). In so speaking, our Lord had followed the language of the prophets, who were accustomed to illustrate by the thought of the removal of mountains the greatest acts of Divine power: "What art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain;" "Therefore will we not fear, though the mountains be carried into the midst of the seas" (Zec_4:7; Psa_46:2).
    Even the figure of a "burnt mountain" is not strange to the Old Testament, for the prophet Jeremiah thus denounces woe on Babylon: "Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the Lord, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out Mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and make thee a burnt mountain."* (* Jer_51:25)

USA and North America is called Babylon the Great.
   America (end times Babylon, (Babylon the Great(JA)) destroyed in a nuclear holocaust. (Rev 17:16-18:24) 2016. Some call this "fire" in dreams.

Rome was built on 7 mountains (Zech 4:10). It was destroyed in 410 CE by Alaricus, king of the West Goths.  By some writers, Rome was considered to be Babylon the Great.

    Volcanic eruption coming out of the ocean. Like Enoch 18:13. And in the columns of heaven I beheld fires, which descended without number, but neither on high, nor into the deep. Over these fountains also I perceived a place which had neither the firmament of heaven above it, nor the solid ground underneath it; neither was there water above it, nor anything on wing; but the spot was desolate.   
   There could be a great volcanic eruption like that of Vesuvius in a.d. 79. Strabo tells of an eruption b.c. 196 which made a new island (Palaea Kaumene).
 
 
Mount Krakatoa
     On August 27,1883, (Month 6, Day 2) the 2,623-foot mountain Krakatoa in the Sunda strait of Indonesia literally exploded, burned up completely, and was cast into the sea, the waters where the mountain stood having been 1,000 feet deep ever since. Following this event, atmospheric waves girdled the earth seven times; tidal waves are thought to have destroyed a million lives; some tidal waves reached England, more than 11,000 miles away; and the explosion was actually heard at Bangkok at a distance of 3,000 miles! Thus, within the memory of a few people who have just died, we still have the evidence that the trumpet of God still sounds above the waters of the sea.  www.studylight.org/commentary/revelation/8-8.html

www.history.com/this-day-in-history/krakatoa-erupts  Began August 11, then increased until the 26th and then exploded heavily on August 27th.  Steve Quayle 8/12/2016; www.emsc-csem.org/Earthquake/earthquake.php?id=523428#summary  This EQ is important due to its proximity to Krakatoa, which violently exploded in 1883, changing the weather dramatically in the Western Hemisphere.  Steve Quayle 8/12/2016.   Time to watch this area.  Mount Tambora
On July 31st, 2016 there was a 5.8 magnitude Earthquake seven miles away from the Mount Tambora. The Stratovolcano known as Mount Tambora is still active. Its most recent eruption was in 1967. The volcano looms over the Java Sea from the northern shore of the island of Sumbawa, which lies towards the eastern end of the former Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia. Every now and again Mount Tambora erupts. Its 1815 explosion was possibly the most destructive ever recorded. The last eruption at Tambora caused serious consequences for climate and the fertility of the land over much of the world, as global temperatures dropped causing what is widely known as The Year Without A Summer.

201 years ago.
    In 1812, Mount Tambor entered a period of high activity, with its climatic eruption being the catastrophic explosive event of April 1815.
    The dust from Mount Tambora, which had erupted in early April 1815, had shrouded the globe. And with sunlight blocked, 1816 did not have a normal summer.

    On April 5, 1815, the volcano began to erupt. British traders and explorers in that part of the world heard the sound and at first thought it to be the firing of cannon. There was a fear that a battle of at sea was being fought nearby.  Month 1, Day 4
    On the evening of April 10, 1815, the eruptions intensified. And a massive major eruption began to blow the volcano apart. Viewed from a settlement about 15 miles to the east, it seemed that three columns of flames shot into the sky.  Rosh Chodesh 2, Day 4.

      Mount Tambora is still active. Minor lava domes and flows have been extruded on the caldera floor during the 19th and 20th centuries. The last eruption was recorded in 1967 (Jubilee Year). However, it was a very small, non-explosive eruption (VEI = 0).

    According to the effects from Nibiru, there will be an increase in volcanic eruptions around the globe.

Fire
   Due to the binary star system, there will be an increase of fires and  will effect  or help to cause some of the Trumpet Judgments to occur (Isa 34:9; 37:7; Isa 25:4; Ps 46:6,8; 2 Sam 16:14-16; 1-4 Trumpet judgments Rev  8; Ezek 38:22; 2 Peter 3:10; Isa 30:30; Rev 16:8-9); Nah 1:5 (burned)

   Fire can refer to the tail of the Asteroid, war, plagues.

    Fire is represented as the symbol of Jehovah's presence and the instrument of his power, in the way either of approval or of destruction. Exo_3:2; Exo_14:19; Num_11:1, Num_11:3; Jdg_13:20; 1Ki_18:38; 2Ki_1:10, 2Ki_1:12; 2Ki_2:11; Isa_6:4; Eze_1:4; Rev_1:14, etc.).
    Used as a signal in war Jer_6:1   Display of: In the plagues of Egypt Exo_9:24

     Figurative of Judgments: Deu_4:24; Deu_32:22; Isa_33:14; Jer_23:29; Amo_1:4; Amo_1:7; Amo_1:10; Amo_1:12; Amo_1:14; Amo_2:2; Mal_3:2; Luk_12:49; Rev_20:9; Jer_48:45; Lam_1:13; Eze_39:6

    Of the destruction of the wicked Mat_13:42; Mat_13:50; Mat_25:41; Mar_9:44; Rev_9:2; Rev_21:8 ; Frequently employed as an instrument of divine vengeance Psa_97:3; Isa_47:14; Isa_66:16;

    Characterized of: Consuming Jdg_15:4; Jdg_15:5; Psa_46:9; Isa_10:16; Isa_10:17; Melting Psa_68:2; Isa_64:2; Purifying Num_31:23; 1Pe_1:7; Rev_3:18

THINGS CONNECTED WITH
   Burning coals Pro_26:21; Flame Son_8:6; Isa_66:15; Sparks Job_18:5; Isa_1:31; Ashes 1Ki_13:3; 2Pe_2:6; Smoke Isa_34:10; Joe_2:30

    Fire was a frequent instrument of the Divine primitive wrath (Gen_19:24; Exo_9:23 (lightning); Num_11:1; Num_16:35, etc.; Psa_104:4, the American Standard Revised Version “Who maketh ... flames of fire his ministers”). Fire shall yet dissolve the world (2Pe_3:12).

Sea
    Sea can refer to a multitude of people, nations, and tongues (Rev_17:15) or the ocean (Psa_46:2).

 "The gathering of the waters," "the Ocean." Gen_1:2; Gen_1:10; Gen_30:13; etc.

Illustrative:
   Of heavy afflictions Isa_43:2; Lam_2:13; (Trouble,) of the wicked Isa_57:20; (Roaring,) of hostile armies Isa_5:30; Jer_6:23; (Waves of,) of devastating armies Eze_26:3; Eze_26:4; (Waves of,) of the unsteady Jam_1:6; (Covered with waters,) of the diffusion of spiritual knowledge over the earth in the latter days Isa_11:9; Hab_2:14; Waters of Egypt turned into, as a judgment Exo_7:17-21;
Of destruction Eze_35:6; Of judgments Eze_16:38; Rev_16:6

Symbolic:
     In Daniel's vision Dan_7:2-3
     In John's apocalyptic vision Rev_4:6; Rev_8:8-9; Rev_10:2; Rev_10:5-6; Rev_10:8; Rev_13:1; Rev_15:2; Rev_16:3; Rev_21:1

     The word “sea” is used symbolically in Isa_60:5, where it probably means the nations around the Mediterranean. In Dan_7:3, Rev_13:1 it may mean the tumultuous changes among the nations of the earth.

    “When Rabbi Akiba prayed, wept, rent his garments, put of his shoes, and sat in the dust, the world was struck with a curse; and then the third part of the olives, the third part of the wheat, and the third part of the barley, was smitten “Rab. Mardochaeus, in Notitia Karaeorum, p. 102.

    The plagues of Egypt, too, are again taken advantage of by the Seer, for in the first of these Moses "lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river; . . . and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt."* Here, however, the plague is extended, embracing as it does not only the river of Egypt, but the sea, with all the ships that sail upon it, and all its fish. Again also, as before, the "third part" is not to be thought of as confined to one region of the ocean, while the remaining two-thirds are left untouched. It is to be sought everywhere over the whole compass of the deep. (Exo_8:20-21)

Blood
    Reminding of the first plague in Egypt (Exo_7:20, Exo_7:21). Blood used metaphorically to denote race (Act_17:26), and as a symbol of slaughter (Isa_34:3). To “wash the feet in blood” means to gain a great victory (Psa_58:10). For atonement Exo_30:10; Lev_17:11; For purification Heb_9:13; Heb_9:19-22.

Rev 8:9.  And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships (Isa 2:16) were destroyed.

    This judgment is undoubtedly a giant meteor/comet/asteroid falling into the sea by what some experts believe. Notice the phrase, as it were a mountain. This, again, is a symbolic description. Always take every word of the Bible literally unless God tells you to take it figuratively. This passage is an example of the latter. Something gigantic, as or like a mountain, is cast into the sea and causes a third part of the sea to become blood. A similar occurrence was experienced in Moses' day: And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone. And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. And the fish that in the river died (Exodus 7:19-21).
By the commentators, there are three views going on.

1) The popular view is that a kingdom or group of people (Islam, ISIS) will plague 1/3rd of the Sea (multitudes of the people) which would be the Middle East, Europe, and northern Africa which is presently going on. “The stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth,” Daniel 2:35. Compare Zechariah 4:7; Jeremiah 51:25.

2) An asteroid or meteor will strike the ocean (more likely the Pacific) since it is already destroyed of life from Fukashimi accident (nuclear accident) caused by an earthquake on the Japanese mainland island.  Some say the Atlantic.
Trumpet 2: Meteorite/Volcano explodes in the ocean, 1/3 ships and sea life destroyed. (Rev 8:8,9). Affects Day 5 of Genesis 1. Exod 8:20-21.
Gen 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
Gen 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
Gen 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
If it is an asteroid/comet or meteor then we also need to add.
Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
Luk 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
Luk 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Exo 8:20 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
Exo 8:21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
 
 
 

3) Volcanic eruption coming out of the ocean. Like Enoch 18:13. And in the columns of heaven I beheld fires, which descended without number, but neither on high, nor into the deep. Over these fountains also I perceived a place which had neither the firmament of heaven above it, nor the solid ground underneath it; neither was there water above it, nor anything on wing; but the spot was desolate.   
     There could be a great volcanic eruption like that of Vesuvius in a.d. 79. Strabo tells of an eruption b.c. 196 which made a new island (Palaea Kaumene).
    It may be Mount Etna on the island of Sicily which vulcanologists say is ready to blow its top, like Mt. St. Helens. Many scholars feel that the sea on which this judgment falls is the Mediterranean.  www.raystedman.org/new-testament/revelation/angels-of-doom

Day of Atonement 2016 and a possible/probable global earthquake


Day of Atonement 2016 and possible/probable earthquake

Joe 2:1  Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;

Joe 2:2  A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.

Joe 2:3  A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.

Zep 1:14  The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

Zep 1:15  That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,

Zep 1:16  A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.

Zep 1:17  And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

Zep 1:18  Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.

Num_10:9  And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.

The Day of the Lord is a one year event according to Isaiah and covers both the Trumpet and Bowl Judgments of Revelation and it begins on the Day of Atonement.

Joe 2:15  Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

Joe 2:16  Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

Lev 23:23  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Lev 23:24  Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, an holy convocation.

The seventh month occurs between September 15th to October 15th which is called the month of Tishrei. It begins when you see the first sliver of the new moon during this timeframe. In 2016, it is October 3rd.

The Day of Trumpet this year is the possible/probable day for the rapture/gathering of Believers.  According to the Torah (first five books of the Old Testament), the gathering takes place one year prior to war because the groom (Jesus Christ) cannot go to war for one year after he/He just got married.

Exo_15:3  The LORD is a man of  war: the LORD is his name.

Deu_24:5  When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken.

Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement

Lev 23:26  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Lev 23:27  Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls (fast), and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

Lev 23:28  And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God.

Joe 2:15  Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:

 On the Day of Atonement the trumpet/Shophar is blown once whereas on the Day of Trumpet, the shophar is blown 99 times. On the Day of Atonement, the nation is gathered together for this is the day of judgment against the nation for its sins and the nation is redeemed of its sins.


Rev 8:5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
 
1656 2270, 2348/9 BCE 2435BC מבּוּל mabbûl; Flood Methuselah dies year of flood 969 years old; Noah 600 years old *

Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement is when Nibiru in 2016 may/will affect the earth, with a global earthquake, fulfilled as in Revelation 6:12-17, as well as other OT scriptures. This global earthquake is actually an axial polar shift (the only explanation for why the stars will roll up as a scroll). This exact same event happened the day that the Great Deluge began, 3,600 years ago, when Nibiru passed through our solar system... which was also Yom Kippur, but it had not been decreed as such by YVWH yet, at the Exodus, when Moses was translated to Heaven to be with YVWH for the 40 days... remember, Moses' face was so bright that the Israelites asked him to cover it, when he came back from Mount Sinai.

In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. Bereshit, Genesis 7:11 (1649 years from the fall - Book of Jubilees, Paradise and the Fall iii: 17); Nibiru encounter "The Destroyer". Isa 24:1, 19-20. Some accounts and teachers say this was at Passover and others say this was in October/November. Pole Shift. It caused a 23 degree tilt. The tetonic plates separated.

    Gen 8:4  And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. Aviv 17th 2347 (Wednesday--Day after First fruits.)  www.tedmontgomery.com/bblovrvw/emails/Aviv17.html

Supposedly, today the poles have shifted 47 degrees.

Golden Calf of Exodus and the tie to Revelation 17


Golden Calf of the Exodus and the tie to Revelation 17
This is a 12 page article. If you get confused then leave them in the comments section. I hope you will enjoy this connection of dots story.

Isa 46:9  Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

Isa 46:10  Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
     In this study, we are going to study the golden calf (Exod. 32) of the Exodus and the 40 days and nights that Moses was up on the mountain and how this ties to the end of humanity with Nibiru and the book of Revelation chapters 17, and 18 in the years of 2016 and 2017 if that is the timeframe.

    Notes will be coming from dictionaries and commentators at E-Sword. Scriptures will be King James Version.
    Since the Golden Calf story centers around 40 days and 40 nights at the time of Pentecost and both are Biblical then you can expect heavenly signs on the start date and the end date. Baalism is what this story is all about so the starting point is Nimrod and his wife who is called the Goddess mother and all fertility goddesses ties back to her. Nimrod is the father of Baalism so the story of the Golden Calf ties back to Nimrod and the Tower of Babel which is called the Shinar Directive from Prophecy Watchers. Calf Worship becomes bull worship. Bull horns become the rays of the Sun and a sun is between the horns which becomes Sun Worship. Roman Catholicism is made up of many different idol religions and to make it acceptable to the Christians, they mixed real Christianity into their poisonous liquor just to sweeten the pot of death that they bring on and in the process, they changed times and seasons to get God and the Sabbath and his laws out of the picture and they substituted the Lord Jesus Christ with their lord which is the Roman gods and Lucifer/Satan rules over them.   Like the calf story goes, the pagans mixed in with the Jews wanted their gods to be idolized. So their gods became either the Egyptian gods or the Babylonian and Canaanite gods which became the Roman Catholic Church (Beast System--both political and religious) which became known as Mystery Babylon of Rev. 17/18.

     This is all tied back to the days of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel which in the end times will become the one world government with a one world religion which is called Mystery Babylon which covers both the Religious and political Babylon of Revelation 17 and 18 which actually begins in Revelation 16.
    Nimrod and the Tower of Babel is called the Shinar Directive in the video below.


    The major words will be: destroy; wrath of God; judgment; Tarus, Saturn, Moloch, Ra, Sun worship, bull worship, Marduk, and sword.
    We begin our story with Nimrod who began Baalism and was the founder of the Tower of Babel.

    A descendant of Ham, mentioned in “the generations of the sons of Noah” (Gen 10; compare 1Ch_1:10) as a son of Cush. He established his kingdom “in the land of Shinar,” including the cities “Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh” (Gen_10:10), of which only Babel, or Babylon, and Erech, or Uruk, have been identified with certainty. “The land of Shinar” is the old name for Southern Babylonia, afterward called Chaldea ('erec kasdı̄m), and was probably more extensive in territory than the Šumer of the inscriptions in the ancient royal title, “King of Shumer and Accad,” since Accad is included here in Shinar. (Isbe)
     The study of Shinar leads to the One World Order or the Beast System run today by the United Nations which the European Union is a part of. A book titled “The Shinar Directive” is a good book to read.

Exo 32:1  And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

    Notice the word “gods”. This reference may be to either Egyptian gods or Babylonian or Canaanite gods.
Exo 32:4  And he (Arron) received them (gold jewelry) at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

    The people lost their sight and turned back to the gods of Egypt so they wanted Aaron to make them idols (Acts 7:39-40). They had learnt of the Egyptians thus to represent the Deity by way of a bull, for it is said (Eze_20:8), They did not forsake the idols of Egypt, and (Exo_23:8), Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt. Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox (Psa_106:20), and proclaimed their own folly, beyond that of other idolaters, who worshipped the host of heaven.

Exo 32:7  And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

Exo 32:8  They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

Exo 32:9  And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

Exo 32:10  Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

Exo 32:14  And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people. (After Moses pleaded for Israel between vs. 11-13).

Exo 32:15  And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

Exo 32:19  And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

Exo 32:20  And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.

Exo 32:26  Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD'S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

Exo 32:27  And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.

Exo 32:28  And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

There was no earthquake at this timeframe when Moses was up on the mountain for 40 days and 40 nights or when he came down from the mountain as shown in the movie: The Ten Commandments.

The 40 days began possibly a week later after the Day of Pentecost by what some people believe and it will end 40 days later with possibly a Heavenly sign. There are 120 days between the Day of Pentecost and the Day of Atonement.

Egyptian gods

     In the prehistoric age the influence of the bull symbol was so powerful that it gave its name to one of the most important signs of the Zodiac, and from early historic times the horns of the bull were the familiar emblem of the rays of the sun, and solar gods were very commonly represented as bull-gods.
    The Egyptians, close neighbors of the Hebrews, from the Exodus onward, worshipped living bulls at Memphis (not Mendes, as EB) and Heliopolis as incarnations of Ptah and Ra.

    The sun was revered as the “valiant bull” and the reigning Pharaoh as “Bull of Bulls.”
    The Babylonians revered the bull as the symbol of their greatest gods, Ann and Sin and Marduk - the ideograph of a young bullock forming a part of the latter's name - while Hadadrimmon, an important Amorite deity, whose attributes remarkably resemble those of Yahweh  is pictured standing on the back of a bull.

    The Israelites "in Egypt" had served the Egyptian idols (Jos_24:14), including the sacred living bulls Apis, Basis, and Mnevis, and sacred cows Isis and Athor; worshipped for their utility to man, and made symbols of the sun and Osiris.
     So Psa_106:20, "they changed their glory (i.e. God) into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass"; indeed the Egyptians used to offer a bottle of hay to Apis.

    The rites of Mnevis' feast at Heliopolis, boisterous revelry, dancing, offerings, etc., which the Israelites were familiar with in Egypt, they transferred to Jehovah's calf image. Act_7:40-41 marks this first stage of idolatry. The second more glaring stage surely followed: "God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven" (Act_7:42-43).
Babylonian gods

Easton’s dictionary suggested that the golden calf which Aaron made (Exo_32:4) was probably a copy of the god Moloch rather than of the god Apis, the sacred ox or calf of Egypt. The Jews showed all through their history a tendency toward the Babylonian and Canaanitish idolatry rather than toward that of Egypt.

The statue of Moloch was in the Valley of Hinnom/Gehenna outside of Jerusalem where all the trash was dumped. The statue was hollow on the inside so people would build fires in it and burn their babies. This is where the idea of abortion came from.  The statue was so hot, that it looked like the red coat of Santa/Satan Claus.

Marduk Connection

Marduk, in Mesopotamian religion, the chief god of the city of Babylon and the national god of Babylonia; as such, he was eventually called simply Bel, or Lord. Originally, he seems to have been a god of thunderstorms. Marduk was later known as Bel, a name derived from the Semitic word baal, or “lord.” www.britannica.com/topic/Marduk

    Nimrod was known in ancient history by the names of Marduk, Bel, and Merodach.

    One of the many names of Nibiru, the Destroyer, was known as Marduk.

    The star has been given many names during its course through the history of mankind.

   El Shaddai is His Name. Shaddai comes from the root word "Shadad" shaw-dad' A primitive root; properly to be burly, that is, (figuratively) powerful (passively impregnable); by implication to ravage: - dead, destroy (-er), oppress, robber, spoil (-er), X utterly, (lay) waste. Strong H7703

The Wife Connection to Nimrod
   Nimrod had a wife who was known as the Mother Goddess possibly. She had many names under many different idol religions.
    In Babylonia the goddess Ishtar has the cow for her symbol on very ancient seal cylinders, and when this nude or half-nude goddess appears in Palestine she often stands on a bull or cow and under slightly different forms this same goddess is revered in Arabia, Moab, Phoenicia, Syria and elsewhere, while among the Semitic Canaanites the bull was the symbol of Baal, and the cow of Astarte. She once is found wearing ram's horns only reveals her nature more clearly as the goddess of fertility.  She is also called by many other names such as: Aphrodite, Astarte, Estor, Cybele, Isis, Venus, and many other names in Greek, Babylonian, and Roman circles.

     At the European Union headquarters, you see a statue with a woman riding a bull.   signsofthelastdays.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/Europa-Statue-EU-Headquarters-Brussels-600x450.jpg
Roman Catholicism Connection

    Roman Catholicism is made up of many different idol religions and to make it acceptable to the Christians, they mixed real Christianity into their poisonous liquor just to sweeten the pot of death that they bring on and in the process, they changed times and seasons to get God and the Sabbath and his laws out of the picture and they substituted the Lord Jesus Christ with their lord which is the Roman gods and Lucifer/Satan rules over them.   Like the calf story goes, the pagans mixed in with the Jews wanted their gods to be idolized. So their gods became either the Egyptian gods or the Babylonian and Canaanite gods which became the Roman Catholic Church (Beast System--both political and religious) which became known as Mystery Babylon of Rev. 17/18.
Rev 17:3  So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Rev 17:4  And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Rev 17:5  And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

 The Astrology and Astronomy Connection

 The golden calf gave rise to one of our Zodiac constellations (Isbe—Calf, Golden), so now we turn our eyes to Astrology and Astronomy from the Biblical dictionary of Isbe.

     The reference to Saturn occurs in Amo_5:25, Amo_5:26: “Did ye bring unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? Yea, ye have borne the tabernacle of your king (the King James Version Moloch) and the shrine of (KJV Chiun) your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.” This passage was quoted from the Septuagint by Stephen in his defense, “And they made a calf in those days, and brought a sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their hands. But God turned, and gave them up to serve the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets,
    “Did ye offer unto me slain beasts and sacrifices Forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? And ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, And the star of the god Rephan, The figures which ye made to worship them” (Act_7:41-43).

Saturn or Moloch Worship

The difficulty of the passage is that both Amos and Stephen appear to represent the worship of the golden calf as identical with the worship of Moloch and of the planet Saturn; yet though Kaivan is only mentioned here, the nature of the reference would imply that this deity was one familiar both to speaker and hearers. The difficulty vanishes at once, if the plain statement of Stephen be accepted, that when God permitted Israel to “go after the stubbornness of their heart, that they might walk in their own counsels” (Psa_81:12) He “gave them up to serve the host of heaven.” The worship of the golden calf was star worship; it was the solar bull, the constellation Taurus, in which the sun was at the time of the spring equinox,that was thus represented. The golden calf was therefore analogous to the familiar symbol of the Mithraic cult, the bull slain by Mithra, Sol Invictus, if indeed the latter did not take its origin from this apostasy of Israel.

   And Moloch the king, the idol of the Ammonites and Phoenicians, was intimately connected both with the solar bull and the planet Saturn. According to the rabbins, his statue was of brass, with a human body but the head of an ox. On the Carthaginian worship of Moloch or Saturn, Diodorus (book xx, chapter i) writes: “Among the Carthaginians there was a brazen statue of Saturn putting forth the palms of his hands bending in such a manner toward the earth, as that the boy who was laid upon them, in order to be sacrificed, should slip off, and so fall down headlong into a deep fiery furnace.

The Israelites professed to be carrying the tabernacle of Yahweh upon which rested the Shekinah glory; but in spirit they were carrying the tabernacle of the cruelest and most malignant of all the deities of the heathen, and the light in which they were rejoicing was the star of the planet assigned to that deity.

    Moloch then was the sun as king, and especially the sun as he entered upon what might be considered his peculiar kingdom, the zodiac from Taurus to Serpens and Scorpio, the period of the six summer months. The connection of the sun with Saturn may seem to us somewhat forced, but we have the most direct testimony that such a connection was believed in by the Babylonians. In Thompson's Reports, obverse of No. 176 reads: “When the sun stands in the place of the moon, the king of the land will be secure on his throne. When the sun stands above or below the moon, the foundation of the throne will be secure.” The “sun” in this inscription clearly cannot be the actual sun, and it is explained on the reverse as being “the star of the sun,” the planet Saturn. No. 176 rev. reads: “Last night Saturn drew near to the moon. Saturn is the star of the sun. This is the interpretation: it is lucky for the king. The sun is the king's star.” The connection between the sun and Saturn probably arose from both being taken as symbols of Time. The return of the sun to the beginning of the zodiac marked the completion of the year. Saturn, the slowest moving of all the heavenly bodies, accomplished its revolution through the signs of the zodiac in about 30 years, a complete generation of men. Saturn therefore was in a peculiar sense the symbol of Time, and because of Time, of Destiny.

    The connection between the worship of the golden calves, of the heavenly host and of Moloch, and of these with divination and enchantments, is brought out very clearly in the judgment which the writer of the Book of Kings pronounces upon the apostate ten tribes: “They forsook all the commandments of Yahweh their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made an Asherah, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments” (2Ki_17:16, 2Ki_17:17). (Isbe).
    Under Astronomy in the “Isbe” dictionary, the bull is found in the prophecy of Balaam (Numbers 24:8) and is called the bull of Joseph, wild-ox, or unicorn.

Unicorn

ū´ni-kôrn (ראם, re'ēm (Num_23:22; Num_24:8; Deu_33:17; Job_39:9, Job_39:10; Psa_22:21; Psa_29:6; Psa_92:10; Isa_34:7)): “Unicorn” occurs in the King James Version in the passages cited, where the Revised Version (British and American) has “wild-ox”.
Wild-Ox

(ראם, re'ēm): The word “unicorn” occurs in the King James Version in Num_23:22; Num_24:8; Deu_33:17; Job_39:9, Job_39:10; Psa_22:21; Psa_29:6; Psa_92:10; Isa_34:7 (the King James Version margin “rhinoceros”). The Revised Version (British and American) has everywhere “wild-ox” (margin “ox-antelope,” Num_23:22). The Septuagint has μονόκερως, monókerōs, “one-horned,” except in Isa_34:7, where we find οἱ ἁδροι, hoi hadroı́, “the large ones,” “the bulky ones.” In this passage also the Septuagint has οἱ κριοί, hoi krioı́, “the rams,” instead of English Versions of the Bible “bullocks.” Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) has rhinoceros in Num_23:22; Num_24:8; Deu_33:17; Job_39:9, Job_39:10; and unicornis in Psa_22:21 (21:22); Psa_29:6 (Psa_28:6); Psa_92:10 (Psa_91:11); Isa_34:7.

   Figurative: The wild-ox is used as a symbol of the strength of Israel: “He hath as it were the strength of the wild-ox”. (Num_23:22; Num_24:8). In the blessing of the children of Israel by Moses it is said of Joseph:

“And his horns are the horns of the wild-ox:

    With them he shall push the peoples all of them, even the ends of the earth” (Deu_33:17).

The Psalmist (Psa_29:5, Psa_29:6) in describing the power of Yahweh says:

“Yea, Yahweh breaketh in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.

He maketh them also to skip like a calf;

Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild-ox.”
    Again, in praise for Yahweh's goodness (Psa_92:10): “But my horn hast thou exalted like the horn of the wildox.”

  The story of the golden calf ties to Acts Chapter 2 where 3000 men were saved on the Day of Pentecost/Feast of Weeks/Shavuot.

Act 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

Exo 32:28  And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men (by the sword in verse 27).

The 120 Day Connection to 2016

   And now we come to the closing life of humanity and the year of 2016 and 2017.

   This year of 2016, the 40 days and nights of Moses coming off the mountain ends on July 29th from the start of Pentecost so don't be surprised if something happens in Israel on that day and is tied to a Heavenly sign.
   On July 29th, Saturn is in Scorpio. Uranus is in Pisces but not quite to the halfway point. The moon is in Tarus. The Sun is in Cancer. Venus and Mercury is in Leo. Jupiter is in Virgo. And Mars is in Libra. (This is included for a possible article later  going to the Leviticus 23 Feast Dates and Second Coming (Jardalkalatgmail.blogspot.com).

    June 19th was the Biblical Pentecost and this was when Moses went up onto the mountain for 40 days and 40 nights. The next 40 days lands on July 29th (Tammuz 23) timeframe which is on a Friday. At this time in Moshe life, he smashed to golden calf. Using the three 40 time periods above, let’s calculate the following 40 days. July 29, 2016 +40 days = September 7th, 2016 which is a 4th day event and is also Elul 4. On Elul 1 Moshe went up on the Mountain for the next 40 days until the Day of Atonement.
1 Elul - Moses ascends Sinai for 3rd 40 days (1313 BCE)
1 Elul - The Prophet
Haggai commands that the rebuilding of the Second Temple continue (520 BCE).


    The final 40th day lands on Monday (Day 2) October 17, 2016.  From Elul 1 to Day of Atonement (October 13/14) is 40 days. Elul 1 begins the 40 days of repentance for the Jews.
    According to Joel 2:15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:  Joe 2:16  Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.

   Is the beginning of the possible Day of the Lord on the Day of Atonement which according to Isaiah is a one year event where the Trumpet and Bowl Judgments will be poured out in one year.  Only time will tell on this one.

Babylon the Great Connection
    Most believers know the end of the story if you have read through the Book of Revelation but some of you do not so it is only fitting to find out what happens to Babylon the Great.

  Saudi Arabia or America (end times Babylon, (Babylon the Great(JA)) destroyed in a nuclear holocaust. (Rev 17:16-18:24) 2016. Some call this "fire" in dreams.
   Timeframe for this above is near the beginning of the Trumpet Judgments prior to the 5th trumpet judgement possibly.

   Vial/Bowl Judgment 7: The Lord Jesus Christ and His saints return to the earth and defeat the antichrist and his armies at Armageddon with 100-pound hailstones. Great earthquake, every island and mountain destroyed, America the Babylon sinks under the ocean. (Rev 16:17-21, Rev 18:21, Jer 51:42).
Conclusion

    We began with Isaiah 46:9-10 where we learned the Elohim/God has declared the end from the beginning so in this story we began in Genesis with Nimrod and have come to the end with Armageddon and the destruction of Mystery Babylon and the Beast System.
