plenty excuses!

As we come to the end of the Old Testament and try and understand the prophet’s messages from Daniel to Malachi, each giving their own versions of God’s conversations with them, about the disasters he is going to inflict on earth as punishment for disbelieving and disobedience. Daniel tells of earth’s fate as told him by God and as we go through to Malachi we can read the statements meant to put fear into us giving us the chance to see and believe there is such a person from above who can carry out these deeds. Hosea, lets us know how low the earthlings have become, committing all the sins and wickedness they were told not to do giving rise, to God’s anger and wrath. Did God use Krakatau or some other ferocious volcano as an example of their power, filling the skies with toxic fallout before they left or did they just explain the devastation that is going to happen when earth finally reaches its end? As Joel, quotes in Chapter two Verses two and three, “A day of darkness and of gloominess a day of clouds and of thick darkness.” “A fire devoureth before them, and behind them a flame burneth, the land is of the Garden of Eden before them and behind them a desolate wilderness, yea and nothing shall escape them.” Verse Six says, “Before their face the people shall be much pained all faces shall gather blackness.” Is this not what happened fifteen hundred years ago when that giant volcano erupted and is this not what would have been the same as the aftermath of the disaster that struck earth just before God recreated the earth. Other prophets describe it also, some in more detail. These were the warnings given to earthlings allowing them plenty time to repent, before God and his people departed for a short time returning, in the near future when we will need them even more. They did not want to destroy the planet they helped create but showed the earthlings that they were capable of such a feat. In Amos Chapter Five, Verse Eight, “seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion and maketh the day dark with night that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth. The Lord is his name.” This is proof enough to me that the same God that was among the lost nations we spoke about (Aztecs, Incas etc.) who taught them of the stars and Heaven, is the same God in the Bible who passed through and possibly helped form some of the constellations we now know of. God is telling us through the prophets of the powers already shown on earth and where even today we can see the proof of its might. Why did we doubt his threats, or his forecast of impending disasters then, when he had already shown his power, and why do we doubt now, of his prophecies concerning earth’s demise when we can fall back on records from earth’s core, proving and dating disasters from that era? Micah’s words back up my theories when he quotes in Chapter One Verse Two “hear all ye people, harken 0’ earth, and all that therein is, and let the Lord God be witness against you, the Lord from his Holy Temple.” “For behold the lord cometh forth out of his place, and will come down and tread upon the high places of the earth.” “And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.” That is the description of a volcano where lava, mudslides and volcanic dust all combines, creating havoc on earth. Not only did these prophets tell of disasters like Krakatau, they also tell us of earth’s last days as was described to them by God unlike later prophets who are shown visually the destruction to come. Nahum describes God, his people and their power over all the natural elements that can cause potential upheaval on earth when he says, “God is jealous and the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.” Some or all religions preach that God, the Lord and the Holy Ghost are, among other names used to describe one God, whereas here I think it is possible that they are different people. God, being the supreme God while others are commanders of other spaceships with the angels as crew carrying out orders by passing on God’s messages to the earthlings while appearing visually to a chosen few. Their power becomes apparent when in Verse Three it quotes, “the Lord is slow to anger and great in power and will not at all acquit the wicked, the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind, arid in the storm and the clouds are the dust of his feet.” He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers.” “The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt and the earth is burned at his presence, yea. The world and all that dwell therein.” “Who can stand before his indignation? And who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? His fury is poured out like fire and the rocks are thrown down by him.” Verifying God can make these volcanoes erupt or cause tempests to rage at sea, also proven in Jonah. God’s fury was only unleashed because the nations of this world did not believe in his capabilities, the same reason he will eventually assist to end earth’s existence. The past, present and future are all in the books of the Old Testament, who other than Masters of the universe could tell us of these events.
