Is the World About to Be Given One Last Chance to Repent Before Utter Hell is Unleashed?
Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he first reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets. –Amos 3:7
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. -Acts 2:17
Recently, multitudes of people around the world began reporting a nearly identical vision: God is about to send 3 days of Thick Darkness upon the earth as a Final Warning to mankind to repent of their sin and return to Him and His ways – before cataclysmic judgement and destruction begins.
We’ll take a look at a few of the prophecies/visions first, and then examine The Word to determine whether this coming event has actually been foretold in the Scriptures for nearly 6,000 years.
Julie from North Carolina received the following:
I WILL ROAR
My wrath will not be held back any longer, for the enormity of this worlds sin is great. My arm of protection is no longer upon you, as you have chosen death over life. I am about to act mightily and in great power across this earth. You will know that your great disobedience brings this upon you. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth as I sweep across your nations.
Woe to those who have repeatedly ignored My pleas and the pleas of My Son for repentance. You will all be brought to your knees. You have no idea the force in which I will strike, for I will not be mocked. Prepare for you will reap that which you have sown. None of you has ever experienced this intense darkness that I will send as My final Warning. To the disobedient ones, it will bring immense terror and chaos.
Now to My Bride, you will experience this as My greatest act of mercy and I assure you again and again, you have nothing to fear. My judgements are not for you although you must endure for a moment in order that you be My light after these things occur.It is always darkest before the morning. I will NEVER forsake you for this is My promise. Pay close attention dear ones to My Holy Spirit which resides in you. Listen for instructions. Be ever so vigilant and alert at all times so you will not be caught unaware.Never cease praying. Anchor in Me, your Source and I will comfort you through this dark time and provide you with a peace that I alone can provide. This will commence suddenly to those not walking as One with Me, but I always let My own know what I am about to do. Do not let your guards down. There must not be any openings in your armor in which the enemy can penetrate. It is imperative that you heed these warnings now so desperation and fear do not overtake you.
You must not underestimate the enemy, however remember that greater is He in you than he that rules this world. I give you My kiss of peace. You will be triumphant My Bride. I would not have My Bride to suffer long, as My love for her is beyond measure. Although you will see death and very sorrowful situations, it is of the utmost importance that you remember during these times, who you are to Me. You are My chosen, precious jewels in the Kingdom. Stay close to Me now more than ever children, drawing your strength from Me your Heavenly Father, for I will roar from the Heaven’s and everything that can be shaken will be shaken.
Your Eternal Father
As the Lord relayed this message to me, He again showed me the vision spoken of with the train of judgements. Please see the post: ANOTHER SERIOUS WARNING FOR AMERICA written 06/18/12.
Galatians 6:7-8King James Version (KJV)
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
17 Pray without ceasing.
Hebrews 12:26-2926 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.
A woman from Australia received this message:
The Lord spoke these words to me today:
“I so dearly love you, My children, and long for the time when we are together for eternity. This Bridegroom longs for His Bride! And I am coming soon! Make no mistake, My dear daughter, I am coming soon! Much sooner than many think. But I am speaking to My own so My coming will not be sudden to them.
I have given you knowledge of events to come and this is the order in which they will come:
First of all, there will be a cataclysmic event that will affect all mankind; then there will be darkness over all the earth; then I will reveal Myself to the hearts of every man and woman on the face of the earth. Their sinful nature will be exposed and they will realize their need of Me. They will realize that I am indeed their Creator and their Redeemer. That I, Jesus, shed My blood for them on the Cross and that without My forgiveness they will not enter Heaven. They will be given the choice of accepting Me as their Lord and Saviour, or rejecting Me.
This will be My last intervention from Heaven to a world dying of sin, to save each individual from a fate worse than death – eternity in Hell. So many think that Hell does not exist. They think, ‘How could a loving God send anyone to Hell?”
They don’t realize that no sin can enter Heaven and it is only through My shed blood on the Cross that any sin is forgiven. If My sacrifice on the Cross is rejected, there is no other means to keep that person from eternity in Hell. If they don’t choose Me as their Lord and Saviour, then I have no power whatsoever over their souls.
They have chosen to align themselves with Satan, who longs to drag My precious children into the abyss of Hell with himself. He does not desire this out of any feeling or regard for the person he has deceived, but to thwart Me, as he hates Me so intensely, and therefore he wants to hurt Me by hurting My children.
This is why My intervention is so necessary, as it will lift the veil of deception from the eyes of each and every person on the face of the earth and they will be given the opportunity to choose of their own free will.
The darkness that covers the earth will last for three days and it is during this time that I will manifest Myself to mankind. Don’t fear this event, My children, for it is out of My great love for you that this event has been prepared since the beginning of time.
After your hearts are purified, My Holy Spirit will invade your beings as never before and you will arise to do great miracles and will lead many to Me in the short time left before I come for My Bride.
Arise, My children, with joy in your hearts, for your Bridegroom cometh for His Bride!Your Jesus,Your Bridegroom”2 Peter 3:1-9 (NKJV)1 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
As well as:
“My daughter, keep trusting in Me to reveal Myself more fully to you in these dark times. The cosmic event is truly upon you now and you will receive more warning in the coming days to give you time to prepare for this event.
There is more coming, My child, than you could possibly imagine, but there is to be no fear in your heart for I have fore-ordained everything that is to come to pass. My children will be infused with power from on high and through My Holy Spirit will be sent out as witnesses to bring in the last harvest before the door closes.
Before this is to take place, you will experience a sudden cataclysmic event caused by a cosmic disturbance that will be seen and heard all over the world. When this event comes to pass you will know that the three days of darkness are upon you. You must go to your homes and stay indoors. My angels will protect you from harm. There will be time between the cosmic event and the darkness falling for you to go to your homes with your families and remain safely inside. I will be giving each one of you specific instructions through My Holy Spirit at that time. My angels will be surrounding your homes and properties and keeping you safe from the evil one and the coming darkness.This is all I am giving you now. I will give you more later as the time for this event comes closer.Your Jesus ~ Your Bridegroom”Joel 2:28-32 (NKJV)28 “And it shall come to pass afterwardThat I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,Your old men shall dream dreams,Your young men shall see visions.29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservantsI will pour out My Spirit in those days.30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.31 The sun shall be turned into darkness,And the moon into blood,Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.32 And it shall come to passThat whoever calls on the name of the LordShall be saved.For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance,As the Lord has said,Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.See also Acts 2:14-21Deuteronomy 33:27a (NKJV)The eternal God is your refuge,And underneath are the everlasting arms.Hebrews 13:5 (NKJV)Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”.Psalm 17:8 (NKJV)Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings.
She was also told that God’s people will be changed during the 3 days of darkness and completely filled with the Holy Spirit:
Prepare Your Hearts for This Event
“There is so much coming that it will be difficult for you to take it all in, but through My Holy Spirit you will see My Glories revealed to My Remnant. I am soon coming for My Bride, but before I can come there is to be the event I have spoken to you and others about. I want you all to prepare your hearts for this event. Come to Me in repentance and faith and allow Me to cleanse you through My Holy Spirit. After this event, you will be so filled with My Spirit that every person you come into contact with will know you belong to Me and that I, Jesus, am their Creator and Redeemer. There will be no doubt.
My Holy Spirit will flood your being and bring about many miracles of healing that day. To all those of My children who have been waiting on Me for healing of their bodies, this will take place when My Spirit infuses you. Your waiting is soon over, My dear children. Heaven is rejoicing at what is in store for My Bride!Very soon now, My precious ones … very soon now …!Your Jesus, Your Bridegroom”Matthew 24:32-35 (NKJV)32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”
And that MILLIONS will come to repentance due to the event of darkness:
I Am Coming Down into the Hearts of Men
“No matter what happens in your life I want you to keep trusting Me, My daughter. Events will soon come that could rattle your faith, but I want you to remain strong in Me, your Lord and Saviour. I will not fail you, My daughter. I will protect you and provide for your every need.I am coming down into the hearts of men in such a way that I will reveal Myself to them – to every person living on the face of the earth, I will reveal Myself. They will have no doubt that it is I, their Creator, and that I love them dearly. They will have the choice of following Me or rejecting Me.This will be My last warning before I come for My Bride and My wrath is poured out on the Earth. Many millions will turn to Me during this warning, but others will harden their hearts to Me.Keep praying for the lost while there is yet time for them to change their hearts and to turn to Me in repentance and faith.The glories awaiting My children who are faithful to Me are unimaginable. For those who stay true to Me, their Lord and Saviour, and overcome, there is much laid up in heaven for you. Be overcomers and partake in My heavenly rewards and be immersed in My love for all eternity.Events will come quickly now … prepare your hearts, for I am coming soon!Your Loving Saviour, Jesus.”John 14:21 (NKJV)He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.1 John 5:3-5 (NKJV)3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?Revelation 3:5 (NKJV)He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.Rev 3:10-12 (NKJV)10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.Rev 3:19-21 (NKJV)19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.Rev 2:17 (NJKV)He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written which no one knows except him who receives it.Rev 2:25,26 (NJKV)25 But hold fast what you have till I come. 26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations.
Other visions, prophecies:
As those who know Scripture are well aware, for visions and prophecies of such a magnitude to truly be of God, they MUST already be written in His word. So CAN THIS EVENT BE FOUND IN THE SCRIPTURE?
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;
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….
The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Joel 2:1-2, 10-13
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.
The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. -Joel 3:14-16
Jesus’ description of the time of His coming is nearly identical to Joel’s:
Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. -Matthew 24:29,30
However, Jesus provides one extra bit of detail in verse 37:
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
“As the days of Noah”.
An extra-Biblical text called the Book of Jasher (Referenced In Joshua 10:13; 2 Samuel 1:18; And 2 Timothy 3:8) provides more details about the days of Noah than does the account in Genesis, and may reveal exactly why Jesus compared the time of the end to the days of Noah:
And Noah brought into the ark from all living creatures that were upon earth, so that there was none left but which Noah brought into the ark.
9 Two and two came to Noah into the ark, but from the clean animals, and clean fowls, he brought seven couples, as God had commanded him.
10 And all the animals, and beasts, and fowls, were still there, and they surrounded the ark at every place, and the rain had not descended till seven days after.
11 And on that day, the Lord caused the whole earth to shake, and the sun darkened, and the foundations of the world raged, and the whole earth was moved violently, and the lightning flashed, and the thunder roared, and all the fountains in the earth were broken up, such as was not known to the inhabitants before; and God did this mighty act, in order to terrify the sons of men, that there might be no more evil upon earth.
12 And still the sons of men would not return from their evil ways, and they increased the anger of the Lord at that time, and did not even direct their hearts to all this.
13 And at the end of seven days, in the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
14 And all the fountains of the deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened, and the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
15 And Noah and his household, and all the living creatures that were with him, came into the ark on account of the waters of the flood, and the Lord shut him in.
16 And all the sons of men that were left upon the earth, became exhausted through evil on account of the rain, for the waters were coming more violently upon the earth, and the animals and beasts were still surrounding the ark.
17 And the sons of men assembled together, about seven hundred thousand men and women, and they came unto Noah to the ark.
18 And they called to Noah, saying, Open for us that we may come to thee in the ark–and wherefore shall we die?
19 And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them from the ark, saying, Have you not all rebelled against the Lord, and said that he does not exist? and therefore the Lord brought upon you this evil, to destroy and cut you off from the face of the earth.
20 Is not this the thing that I spoke to you of one hundred and twenty years back, and you would not hearken to the voice of the Lord, and now do you desire to live upon earth?
21 And they said to Noah, We are ready to return to the Lord; only open for us that we may live and not die.
22 And Noah answered them, saying, Behold now that you see the trouble of your souls, you wish to return to the Lord; why did you not return during these hundred and twenty years, which the Lord granted you as the determined period?
23 But now you come and tell me this on account of the troubles of your souls, now also the Lord will not listen to you, neither will he give ear to you on this day, so that you will not now succeed in your wishes.
The account of the deluge in Jasher reveals that merely 7 days prior to the flood, God send mankind DARKNESS AND A MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE AS A FINAL WARNING to repent:
And on that day, the Lord caused the whole earth to shake, and the sun darkened, and the foundations of the world raged, and the whole earth was moved violently, and the lightning flashed, and the thunder roared, and all the fountains in the earth were broken up.
Are there any other instances of darkness proceeding judgement in the Scriptures?
And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings. -Exodus 10:21-23
Interesting things to note about the 3 days of Thick Darkness upon the land of Egypt:
1. The Thick Darkness served as a FINAL WARNING before the judgement of DEATH
2. The judgement that immediately preceded the darkness was the release of locusts upon the whole land of Egypt. Could the locusts of Egypt foreshadow the 200 million strong legion of demons that will be released from the bottomless pit and cover the earth JUST PRIOR to the end days darkness?
3. God’s people had light in their dwelling places.
2. God heard his cry, and Jonah – God’s prophet – was rescued by God Himself on the 3rd day
3. Immediately after the 3 days of darkness experienced by God’s prophet, judgement was SCHEDULED to fall on Nineveh – but God relented of the judgement He planned because the entire city of Nineveh repented of their wickedness.
So we certainly have Scriptural PRECEDENT for God to send thick darkness as a warning preceding judgement, but does any prophecy in Scripture state that God’s people will be TRANSFORMED during a coming period of such darkness?
In a word, Yes!
We weren’t positive prior to digging in, but the further we dug, the more Scriptural evidence we found:
The Apostle Paul was filled with the Holy Spirit after 3 days of darkness (blindness):
8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. 9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink…
17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou might receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized…20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God.
Isaiah prophesied that the Glory of the Lord will come upon God’s people during a time of thick darkness covering the earth:
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. -Isaiah 60:1-3
Hosea 6 prophesies that God’s people will be raised up ON THE THIRD DAY:
Come, and let us return unto the Lord: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.
Isaiah 66:7-9 prophesies that JUST prior to Israel’s labor pains (the Great Tribulation or time of Jacob’s Trouble is described as labor or labor pains in multiple Scriptures) she will give birth to a man:
“Before she was in labor he gave birth;
before her pain came upon her she delivered a man.
8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day?
Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment? For as soon as Zion was in labor she brought forth her children.
9 Shall I bring to the point of birth and not cause to bring forth?” says the Lord; “shall I, who cause to bring forth, shut the womb?” says your God.
Revelation 12 also states that immoderately prior to the last 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation, the woman (Israel) gives birth to a man:
And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. 5 She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne,6 and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.
According to scientists, this Great Sign in the Heavens described in Revelation 12 will occur on September 23rd, 2017:
Yahweh’s Spirit coming to us as “the latter and former rains” reveals there will be TWO separate occasions His Spirit would be poured out on His people. In Acts 2 , Peter describes the FORMER rain falling on His people on the day of Pentecost:
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance…
14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come: 21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? …50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
Notice the pattern. Darkness over the earth for 3 hours, and a massive earthquake. (Followed by Jesus/Yahshua Himself experiencing 3 days of darkness in the tomb/grave prior to the anointing of the Holy Spirit)
Once you start looking for it, the Scripture is littered with prophesies that God will visit His people on a day of thick darkness.
“For thus says the Lord God: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep and will seek them out. 12 As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness.” Ezekiel 34: 11-12
Jeremiah 13:16 warns people to repent before the darkness arrives:
Give glory to the Lord your God before he brings darkness, before your feet stumble on the twilight mountains, and while you look for light he turns it into gloom and makes it deep darkness.
Amos 4:13 states that Yahweh- the Lord God makes the morning darkness:
For behold, he who forms the mountains and creates the wind, and declares to man what is his thought, who makes the morning darkness, and treads on the heights of the earth— the Lord, the God of hosts, is his name!
they shall all cover their lips, for there is no answer from God.
8 But as for me, I am filled with power, with the Spirit of the Lord, and with justice and might, to declare to Jacob his transgression and to Israel his sin.
Psalms 18:1-30 Prophesies that Yahweh Himself Will Come Down in the Darkness at the time of a Great Earthquake to Visit His People:
I love you, O Lord, my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. 3 I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.
4 The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of destruction assailed me, 5 the cords of Sheol entangled me;
the snares of death confronted me. 6 In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
7 Then the earth reeled and rocked; the foundations also of the mountains trembled and quaked, because he was angry. 8 Smoke went up from his nostrils, and devouring fire from his mouth; glowing coals flamed forth from him.9 He bowed the heavens and came down; thick darkness was under his feet.
10 He rode on a cherub and flew; he came swiftly on the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him, thick clouds dark with water. 12 Out of the brightness before him hailstones and coals of fire broke through his clouds.
13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Most High uttered his voice, hailstones and coals of fire.
14 And he sent out his arrows and scattered them; he flashed forth lightnings and routed them.
15 Then the channels of the sea were seen, and the foundations of the world were laid bare at your rebuke, O Lord,
at the blast of the breath of your nostrils.
16 He sent from on high, he took me; he drew me out of many waters. He rescued me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me.
18 They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support.19 He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me.
20 The Lord dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me.
21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God. 22 For all his rules were before me, and his statutes I did not put away from me. 23 I was blameless before him, and I kept myself from my guilt.
24 So the Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight.
25 With the merciful you show yourself merciful; with the blameless man you show yourself blameless;26 with the purified you show yourself pure; and with the crooked you make yourself seem tortuous.27 For you save a humble people, but the haughty eyes you bring down. 28 For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness.
29 For by you I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. 30 This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.
Psalm 82 reveals that the fallen angels will be judged during a time of darkness and a shaking of the earth:
God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
2 “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah
3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
4 Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
5 They have neither knowledge nor understanding, they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken.6 I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you;7 nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”8 Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!
Does the Scripture indicate God will protect His Remnant during the 3 days of Darkness?
My Refuge and My Fortress – Psalm 91
91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will sayto the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked. 9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place— the Most High, who is my refuge—10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.
Is Job 3 a prophesy that God’s Bride/Remnant will be born on a day of clouds and thick darkness?
“Let the day perish on which I was born, and the night that said, ‘A man is conceived.’
4 Let that day be darkness! May God above not seek it, nor light shine upon it.
5 Let gloom and deep darkness claim it. Let clouds dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it. 6 That night—let thick darkness seize it! Let it not rejoice among the days of the year;
let it not come into the number of the months. 7 Behold, let that night be barren; let no joyful cry enter it.
8 Let those curse it who curse the day, who are ready to rouse up Leviathan.
9 Let the stars of its dawn be dark; let it hope for light, but have none, nor see the eyelids of the morning.
Essentially, Job’s prophesy states that ‘A Man is Conceived’ on a day of clouds and thick darkness.
That phrase ‘A Man is Conceived’ brought our mind to Revelation 12, which is the Great Sign in Heaven (ready to be fulfilled on September 23rd, 2017) signalling the opening of the 6th Seal:
The Woman and the Dragon
12 And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. 2 She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. 3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. 4 His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. 5 She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne,6 and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.
And what happens when the 6th Seal of Revelation is Opened?
That’s right, a great earthquake, and the sun becomes black as sackcloth:
12 When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. 14 The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave[d] and free, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, 16 calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?” -Rev 6:12-17
Would this be the first time that Yahweh appeared to His people and made a covenant with them in the darkness?
10 the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments 11 and be ready for the third day. For on the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people…
14 So Moses went down from the mountain to the people and consecrated the people; and they washed their garments.15 And he said to the people, “Be ready for the third day; do not go near a woman.”
16 On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled. 17 Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain. 18 Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke because the Lord had descended on it in fire. The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain shook greatly…
Exodus 20:18 Now when all the people saw the thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking, the people were afraid and trembled, and they stood far off 19 and said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen; but do not let God speak to us, lest we die.” 20 Moses said to the people, “Do not fear, for God has come to test you, that the fear of him may be before you, that you may not sin.”21 The people stood far off, while Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was.
Ok. So Scripture reveals that God appeared to His people Israel at Mt. Sinai in thick darkness at Shavuot (Pentecost) with a great earthquake and in fire, and He initiated the age of His Church on Pentecost.
Did Jesus Himself give us any more hints as to when He will return for His Bride/Remnant?
36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man…
42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
Remember, then, what you received and heard. Keep it, and repent. If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come against you. -Rev 3:3
But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. – 1 Thess 5:4
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. -2 Peter 3:10
When does a thief come? At night. In the darkness. It appears Jesus/Yahshua was giving us a massive clue here that he would be selecting His bride during a time of night/darkness upon the whole earth. He appears to Her, makes Himself known to Her, and sets His glory upon her.
We could go on, and on, and on…
The Lord Reigns -Psalm 97
97 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad!
2 Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3 Fire goes before him
and burns up his adversaries all around.
4 His lightnings light up the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
before the Lord of all the earth.
6 The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
and all the peoples see his glory.
7 All worshipers of images are put to shame,
who make their boast in worthless idols;
worship him, all you gods!
8 Zion hears and is glad,
and the daughters of Judah rejoice,
because of your judgments, O Lord.
9 For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.
10 O you who love the Lord, hate evil!
He preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11 Light is sown for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
12 Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. -Isaiah 9:2
I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the Lord, who does all these things. – Isaiah 45:7
In that day the deaf shall hear the words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind shall see. -Isaiah 29:18
Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; he is gracious, merciful, and righteous. -Psalm 112:4
The people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.” -Matthew 4:16
The night is far spent; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. -Romans 13:12
The great day of the Lord is near, near and hastening fast; the sound of the day of the Lord is bitter;
the mighty man cries aloud there. 15 A day of wrath is that day, a day of distress and anguish, a day of ruin and devastation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness, 16 a day of trumpet blast and battle cry against the fortified cities and against the lofty battlements. 17 I will bring distress on mankind, so that they shall walk like the blind, because they have sinned against the Lord; their blood shall be poured out like dust, and their flesh like dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them on the day of the wrath of the Lord.
In the fire of his jealousy, all the earth shall be consumed; for a full and sudden end he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth. -Zephaniah 1:14-18
Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” -John 8:12
It certainly appears that 3 days of THICK DARKNESS is about to descend upon the earth as a FINAL WARNING TO REPENT before the Creator, Yahweh Himself unleashes the Days of Awe.
We would suggest that rather than waiting until the last moment (when the darkness arrives), you may want to do your repenting right now.
For he says, “In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.”
Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. -2 Corinthians 6:2
