The Clouds of Armageddon
“Thus saith the Lord God: Howl ye, Woe worth the day! For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen - (Ezk.30:13).
“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... 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” - (Joel 2:1,2).
On June 20, 2006, Jane Wiggins, looking out her office window in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, did a double-take and grabbed her camera. The dark undulating clouds outside were unlike anything she’d seen before. “It looked like Armageddon,” said Wiggins. The clouds were described as quite violent-looking, turbulent, even menacing. A group of dedicated weather watchers are pushing weather authorities to create a new cloud category for them. Two years later in June, 2008, Cedar Rapids suffered $5 billion in damage from a flood over 1300 city blocks. God is warning wicked U.S. not only about the end of the world by His flood during the days of Noah, but also the fiery end of the world soon to come at Armageddon. “Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished; But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men” - (2 Pet.3:6,7). Iowa made sodomite marriage legal in 2009 and the U.S. will burn like Sodom.
The storm clouds of Armageddon are looming very close. The rapture of the church, and the great tribulation period ending in the battle of Armageddon is on the horizon. It’s called the great and dreadful day of the Lord’s wrath. We were given a preview of the clouds of Armageddon on July 16, 1945, when the first nuclear mushroom cloud exploded in wrath in the New Mexico dessert. This first A-bomb explosion was called ‘Trinity’ and on Aug. 6th and 9th, 1945 we dropped A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the whole world was given a glimpse of the clouds of Armageddon and the second coming of Christ in wrath. They chose the word ‘Trinity’ as the code name for the A-bomb project, the very word for the triune God - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Man’s knowledge was puffing him up with pride - man was playing God. Man had created a new cloud category - amen.
The nuclear mushroom clouds of Armageddon is at first a giant fireball of fervent heat and the fallout contains all the pulverized dirt and ashes and fission fragments causing radiation poisoning. It’s a man made cloud of death. It’s not God’s clouds of life-giving water, but a cloud of fire and death. The prophet Joel prophesied of this evil day of clouds that punishes a wicked, Christ-rejecting world. He calls it a “pillar of smoke” - “And I will shew wonders in the heaven and in the earth, blood and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord come” - (Joel 2:30, 31).
It’s a giant, evil, man-made mushroom cloud, full of poisonous plutonium. Glen Seaborg created plutonium naming it after Pluto, the Greek god of the underworld, also called ‘hades or hell.’ and soon it will bring hell on earth. Like Adam and Eve, scientists succumbed to the temptation of Satan as they ate from the tree of knowledge, and this knowledge will one day soon bring death to planet earth. This man-made element plutonium will soon burn up the earth. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” - (2 Pet.3:10). The hell-bombs are coming soon.
It’s the great day of desolation - the ‘abomb-a-nation’ of desolation caused by the wicked Antichrist and wicked people worshipping him as God - (2 Th.2:4). Because of all of man’s abominations, God allows men to use the A-bombs that make the earth desolate - (Ezk.33:29). Every minute of every day, nuclear bombs from China and Russia are aimed at U.S. - thousands of them.
For 40 years God spoke to Israel in the wilderness out of the pillar of a cloud and a pillar of fire (Ps.99:7 - Ex.33:9,10). And many times the wrath of God fell upon them for their wickedness. And God is speaking to man today out of the nuclear pillars of mushroom clouds of fire. The storm clouds of Armageddon are on the horizon. Judgment day is coming soon and the U.S. will become a desolate wilderness.
The Lord Jesus is returning in the clouds with power and great glory and it’s the day of God’s harvest of human fruit. “And I looked and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp side. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, thrust in thy sickle and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe” - (Rev.14:14,15). This is what John the Baptist prophesied of - “Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner (that’s the rapture of the church) but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire” - (Mt.3:12). The wicked human chaff will burn.
O do not spurn the love and grace of God in His beloved Son on the cross or the wrath of God abides upon you. “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him” - (Jn.3:36). Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart and you will receive forgiveness of sins and be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. Jesus said - “That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” - (Jn.3:6,7).
