The World will Prepare to be Destroyed
God will prove his amazing, unimaginable power during the End of Days. On May 21, 2011, He will bring true believers of the Christian Faith to Heaven in the Rapture, while leaving the rest of the humans on the earth he plans to destroy months later. Help me forecast what the End of Days on Earth will be like for those left behind after Jesus returns as King of the Earth. Help me imagine the torment those humans will endure, as The Book of Revelations 9:5 tells us.
5 months of Torment
After the return of Jesus, and the Rapture of the saved, God tells us that those left will experience a Hell on Earth. The initial impact of the instantaneous Rapture of true believers will rip families apart, leave employees without bosses, many seats in the US Government would simply be empty. Those left behind would first seek sways to survive, only to be tormented, and then desire to die.
5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man.
6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. Revelation 9:5-6
Famine, Fighting, Anarchy, and Locusts! John describes the locusts during the period of revelation as having the strength of scorpions, never appearing in the physical – only in the spiritual realm as they are demonic. The extremely painful sting of the demonic scorpion locusts could kill humans without the Seal of God, but is used primarily for torture.
The trumpets that sound during the Seals of God will each bring more death anddestruction during the 5 month revelation. God will save those who find Christ during this period in order to torment the lost even further. This topic itself will bring another blog post at a later date.
The Book of Revelations is full of description that helps us interpret the way life will be when Christ returns to Earth and God torments the lost for 5 long months. Regardless of the accuracy of our forecast, those who remain will find their final fate on October 21, 2011.
