Jericho: Countdown to Oblivion - Chapter 7: Seven Trumpets



The last super eruption from this volcano occurred around 640,000 years ago. The eruption before that was roughly the same amount of time, and before that it was 800,000 years between eruptions. These figures are irrelevant, however. What is much more relevant is the activity at the site itself, which is very active. Geophysics professor Robert B. Smith at the University of Utah claims the recent activity at Yellowstone National Park suggests the chamber of its super volcano is filling with magma. So although we may have thousands of years before the next “Big One”, volcanologists claim we are, in fact, overdue a super eruption, making this site a very likely candidate for the first trumpet sound of the angels of the Book of Revelation.

     The rate at which the caldera is rising has tripled since records began, lifting 6-8 centimetres per year, and there are increasing concerns as scientists monitoring the Yellowstone site from Wyoming now believe a super eruption is imminent. Emergency evacuation procedures have been formulated in and around the area for such an event, but the truth of the matter is, the only way to survive a super eruption at Yellowstone would be to leave the U.S. entirely (the last super eruption is estimated to have devastated everything within a 4,000 kilometre-squared radius).

     Although over 2,000 miles away from the “Big City”which is also mentioned in Revelationthe effects of this eruption will completely obliterate most of North America as a pyroclastic ash cloud travelling undoubtedly in excess of the typical 300 miles an hour pummels most of the continent. The volcanic depression (caldera) alone of this volcano is between thirty-four and forty-five miles—this being the radius of its eruption, which will be so huge the entire volcano will subside.

     Oftentimes, when volcanoes collapse due to a large eruption, a large part of the mountain will fall into the sea, create a tsunami, and turn the water a different colour, and in many cases the mountain will disappear completely. This is precisely what happened the last time Yellowstone erupted; it subsided by thousands of feet and the entire mountain was gone.

     There is no denying it, Yellowstone is ready to blow. Recent seismic activity which has caused the buffalo in the region to flee for their lives is further evidence that something catastrophic may be dawning on us (animals have been known to sense natural disasters before they occur and will flee to safety well in advance).

     The first trumpet sound from the angels could be a super eruption, raining fire mingled with blood all over the world with its enormous volcanic ash cloud and pumice. This would then blot out the sun and cover a large percentage of the earth in total darkness, as is later mentioned in Revelation 8:12:

And the fourth angel sounded; and a third part of the sun was smitten, and a third part of the moon, and a third part of the stars, and a third part of them were darkened, and the day did not appear a third part of it, nor the night. (Revelation 8:12)

     Knowing this eruption has been confirmed by scientists studying the recent activity at the Yellowstone site, and that it would fit very nicely on the Revelation timeline, what is of most concern? In the apocalyptic sense, it would be the giant earthquake and continental shift preceding this eruption, and as devastating as a super eruption would be, the upcoming earthquake should be of more concern considering our present location on the Revelation Timeline.

     Once the great earthquake causes islands to move out of their places and all the kings of the earth flee to the mountains and underground bunkers, prepare for the super eruption of Yellowstone. Following this eruption, John says the great mountain burning with fire will be cast into the sea making it like blood and destroying a third of all sea life and a third of all ships. This is unfitting with Yellowstone super volcano because it is nowhere near the sea. However, there is another volcano in a very densely populated city near the sea which is much more likely to erupt before Yellowstone. And it too, is overdue an eruption.

The great mountain, seven stades around
After peace, war, hunger, flood
Will roll far, destroying great swathes of country
Even antiquities, and mighty foundations.

 —Nostradamus C1:Q69

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding count the number of stades, for this is the height thereof. There will be no point in running during this chaos; the only option will be to pray.

     ‘Hail and fire mingled with blood’ (Revelation 8:7) (or lava) will devastate the U.S. This eruption will be so huge a large portion of the volcano itself will be cast into the sea and turn it red, as with many eruptions, including Krakatoa, where the landslide created a megatsunami. The devastation following this eruption of the world’s largest super-volcano could trigger other eruptions worldwide, quite possibly destroying one third of the creatures and ships in the sea (Revelation 8:9).

      Yellowstone and its aftermath alone may well be responsible for not only the first, but the second and forth trumpet sounds of the angels, and boy will we hear them.
