Isaiah 28:21 The Lord will arise as He did on Mt Perazim, [1 Chron. 14:11] and storm with rage as He did in the valley of Gibeon, [Joshua 10:9-15] to do what He must do, to perform a strange and alien task.
Isaiah 29:5 Suddenly, in an instant the horde of your enemies will crumble into dust, punishment will come from the Lord, with thunder, earthquakes, with storm and tempest and flames of devouring fire.
Isaiah 13:6-13 Cry out: for the Day of the Lord is at hand, it will come in a mighty destruction. Fear will grip everyone, men will lose courage at the coming disaster. That cruel Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath is coming to reduce all the earth to a desolation and to destroy the evil and godless people on it. It will be a Day of darkness, on the day that the Lord brings disaster onto the world and due punishment to the wicked. He will put an end to arrogance and will humble the pride of the ruthless. Humans will become as scarce as fine gold, on the Day that the heavens will be moved and the earth shaken from its place, at the wrath of the Lord, in the Day of His blazing anger. Ref. REB, some verses abridged.
As Isaiah tells us: The Lord has in the past acted to destroy His enemies and now, once again, He will act in His creation. Isaiah 42:14 Long have I restrained Myself. Isaiah 59:18, Isaiah 63:1-6, Isaiah 64:1-2, Psalms 68:1-2, Jeremiah 12:14, Deuteronomy 32:26-43
1/ The Lord will arise, to perform a strange task – to punish His enemies, the attackers of Israel and to humble the godless. Isaiah 66:13-17
2/ Punishment will come from the Lord– not a nuclear war or anything instigated by man.
3/ Suddenly, in an instant – This is the event that ‘will come like a thief’.
4/.. earthquakes – Earthquakes will be caused by the microwave effect of the electromagnetic pulse in a Coronal Mass Ejection. An explosion of the suns surface. Isaiah 30:26a, Psalms 50:1-3, Malachi 4:1
5/ devouring fire – The fireball of the superheated cosmic particles of a CME.
6/ the Day of the Lord is at hand – This is the logical result of most of mankind’s rejection of God and His Laws.
7/ Fear will grip everyone – This sudden and shocking event will terrify all those people unaware of God’s plans. Ezekiel 7:17
8/ a mighty destruction, to reduce the earth to desolation – A worldwide disaster, but it will particularly affect the Middle East area. Zephaniah 1:14-18, Ezekiel 30:1-5
9/ a day of darkness – The approaching mass will obscure the sun and stars.
10/ Humans will become scarce – Millions will die from the initial strike and millions more from famine and the fighting afterward.
11/ the heavens move – the magnetosphere and the atmosphere will be severely affected.
12/ the earth will shake from its place – the hit from this CME may cause the earths orbit to speed up, thereby giving us a 360 day year, which is the prophetic year.
13/ His blazing anger – It is appropriate that the Lord will use the sun, our life sustainer, to judge mankind. A CME solar flare perfectly and literally fulfils all the prophesied effects, but it will quickly pass by, leaving the world to recover. A world that will never be the same again and the stage will be set for all the other prophesied things to happen before the Return of Jesus for His Millennium reign.
