Event 6 – Rev. Ch. 9 V 13 – 18
South of the Dead Sea in Israel are the remains of 5 cities.
The Bible tells us that 4000 years ago these 5 cities and the entire surrounding land were completely destroyed by burning Sulphur.
After this terrible event, one of the cities was renamed Sodom meaning burnt, and another was renamed Gomorrah meaning heap.
A scientific analysis of the area has confirmed the Biblical account of what happened.
More than this, the Bible tells us it is going to happen again, but this time, on a much larger scale.
Revelation Chapter 9 Verse 13 – 18 says:
The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of the golden altar that is before God. It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates. And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and month and day and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of troops was 200 million. I heard their number. The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue and yellow as Sulphur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire smoke and Sulphur. A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and Sulphur that came out of their mouths. (NIV)
The army described is spiritual and is dressed in the Trinity colours. It is sent by God himself, but the resulting plague is natural and the most devastating of all which kills a third of mankind. The Sulphur found at Sodom and Gomorrah was pure white, as if the product of a chemical reaction.
How will burning Sulphur rain out of the sky and where does it come from? Here is the answer…From the emitted gases and ash particles of the Yellowstone eruption.
The Sulphur dioxide gas quickly mixes with water vapour in the atmosphere and becomes Sulphur trioxide then Sulphuric acid.
The Hydrogen sulphide gas breaks down in the presence of oxygen. The Sulphur element breaks away and crystalizes around particles of ash in the atmosphere. These crystals are pure white.
(This effect can be seen around geyser blow holes like Old Faithful in Yellowstone Park)
As the Sulphur crystals in the atmosphere become larger, gravity takes over and they fall back to earth. As they fall through the clouds of Sulphuric acid, heat is generated and they ignite.
Natural Sulphur is always yellow, but as it burns it turns red like blood and in the presence of oxygen burns with a blue flame. (The Trinity colours)
Isaiah Chapter 30 Verse 26 fulfilled.
“The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the Lord binds up the bruises of His people and heals the wounds He inflicted.” (NIV)
The Sulphur crystalized around particles of ash and falling burning from the sky will do a lot to clear up pollutants from the atmosphere. For this reason at this point the Moon will no longer appear blood red. However, burning Sulphur gives off Sulphur dioxide gas and as previously described this mixes with water vapour in the atmosphere and becomes clouds of Sulphuric acid. These clouds will double up the clouds of Sulphuric acid created by the Yellowstone eruption.
Clouds of Sulphuric acid reflect light, so light from the sun and moon travelling to Earth through gaps in the clouds will be trapped. This will give the appearance of the sun and moon being many times brighter than is normal.
