WHAT WE KNOW OF THE GREAT DAY COMING
The Great Day of YAHUAH – “That Day”
The Hebrew word for “land” and “earth” is the same. It is left with the reader/translator to determine which it should be according to the context.
Most, if not all, prophecies are “multi-layered” – referring to the time they were given and having a wider fulfillment at a future time. Thus many prophecies concerning the “Land” – Yashar’el – as well as “Yerushalayim” – have a wider application which includes the whole “earth” in the latter days – the “end time wrath”. This demonstrates the beauty and power of prophecy that comes from the RUACH HA’QODESH – The Eternal One.
Therefore, as you read some of following prophecies which speak about the land and the earth – keep this in mind.
It has been said, “that all prophecies begin in Bereshiyth [Genesis] and end in Revelation”, and the more one studies the prophecies, the more the truth of this statement is borne out!
From the flood, the destruction of Sedom and Amorah, to the “everyday” events in the lives of the patriarchs and prophets there are many “types” of end time events portrayed. [see the page on Revelation and 1 Kings] …. types that clearly point out the final events on this earth during “The Great Day of YAHUAH”!
Many of these texts are referred to in MATTITHYAHU [Matt.] 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13 and all through Revelation.
YAHUSHA said that “As the days of Noah were, so shall be the coming of the Son of Adam.” Now if we “rightly handle the Word of Truth”, then we can stop right there – and go to the “days of Noah” and see what the “types” reveal to us.
Note: There is only One “Day of YAHUAH” also referred to as – The Indignation of YAHUAH, Day of Retribution, Day of Wrath, Terror of YAHUAH, The Day of His Fierce Anger, The Determined End of YAHUAH; but we have been promised that we will be saved from the Wrath of YAHUAH through our belief in YAHUSHA – the Lamb of ELOHIYM.
His blood will be on our “door post” – and though a thousand fall at our side and ten thousands at our right hand we shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day; nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that wastes at noonday.
For He will deliver us from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover us with His feathers. Under His wings we will take refuge. His faithfulness is our shield and rampart!
Should we be His during these days of Wrath – these promises we can depend on – for He always keeps His promises!
The Length of the Day of YAHUAH:
YESHA’YAU 34:8 “For YAHUAH has a Day of Vengeance, a Year of Recompense for the cause of Tsiyon ….”
YESHA’YAHU 63:4 ” For the Day of Vengeance was in My heart, and the Year of My Redeemed is come …”
YESHA’YAHU 61:2 ” … to proclaim the Year of YAHUAH’s Favor, and the Day of Vengeance of our ELOHIYM …
YashaYahuw 32:10 “For days beyond a year you shall be troubled, you careless women; for the vintage shall fail. The harvest won’t come ….”
BERE’SHIYM [Genesis] 7:11-12 “In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep were burst open, and the sky’s windows were opened. The rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.
[first mention of forty days and nights in the Scriptures – it is always a time of trial and transition]
Then, in the six hundredth and first year of Noah’s life In the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. – Thus from the time the flood of destruction began and Noah and his family entered into the “ark of safety”, until they emerged on dry ground – 370 days passed. … or one year and ten days, at that time—the same length of time as the interval between one Feast of Trumpets until Yom Kippur the following year. – a 360 day year. Other parts of this 370 day “flood” of destruction are pictured in Rev. 9:4-10 and alluded to in Rev. 12:15.
The Great Day of YAHUAH in DANIY’EL
Dani’el is replete with allusions to the Great Day of YAHUAH – some are very explicit in their wording, i.e., 8:19 … “And he said: ‘Behold, I will make you know what shall be in the latter time of the indignation (end time of the rage – Great Day of YAHUAH); for this is what will happen in the appointed time of the end.” (for at Mo’ed – the end! / for at the Appointed Time – the end!) = one of the feast days.
And in Chapter 9:26-27 we see more “flood” terminology: “… and the people of a coming prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the Set-apart place; and the end of it is with a flood [like the deluge]; and wastes are decreed, and fighting until the end. And he shall confirm the covenant with the many one week; and in the middle of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the offering to cease; and for the (because of the) overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate; even until the consummation, and that which is decreed/determined is poured out on the one who lays waste.’ [the abomination of desolation]
One Scriptural version boldly says: “And after the sixty-two sevens, the Anointed One will be covenanted, and there will be nothing for Him, and the city and the Pure place will be destroyed by the people of the coming dictator, and his end is like the deluge, but not until the end of the war being decreed against the desolated” Pure Scriptures
In the texts concerning the self-willed king of DANIY’EL Chapter 11 – verse 36 says: and he shall prosper until the wrath [plagues] has been accomplished [Day of YAHUAH]; for what has been decreed shall be done (chp. 9:27)
One needs to keep in mind that YAHUAH works within the Feast Days – and all the fall feasts are yet to be fulfilled! And the “1260 days, the time, times and a half a time, the 42 months, 1290, and 1335 days” will most likely be tied to these feast days – as well as the “ten days” of Revelation 2:10.
And as terrifying as it will be, yet we are told to “long for and desire its appearance”!
KEPHA SHENIY [2 Peter] 3:7-13 But the heavens that now are, and the earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the Day of Judgment and destruction of wicked men. … But the Day of YAHUAH will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Therefore since all these things will be destroyed like this, what kind of people ought you to be in Set-apart living and piousness, looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the Day of YAHUAH, which will cause the burning heavens to be dissolved, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? But, according to His promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.
BERE’SHIYM [Genesis] 7:24 “The waters prevailed on the earth one hundred fifty days.” — 5th Trumpet – Rev. 9:4-10 “They have tails like those of scorpions, and stings, and in the tails of them they have power to torture men for five months [150 days]. [Rev. 9:1-12] — except those who have YaHuWaH’s seal in their forehead! … could this be the “flood” cast out of the serpents mouth to carry away the “woman” of Rev. 12 ??
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 32:10 For a few days beyond a year you shall be troubled, (for a little more than a year) you complacent women; for the vintage shall fail. The harvest won’t come.
YECHIEZQ’EL [Ezekiel] 30:1-3 The Word of YAHUAH came again to me, saying, Son of Adam, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Sovereign YAHUAH: Wail, Alas for The Day! For the Day is near, even The Day of YAHUAH is near; it shall be a Day of clouds, a time of the heathen [Luke 21:24].
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 34:8-11 For YAHUAH has a Day of Vengeance, a Year of Recompense for the cause of Tsiyon. Its (Edom’s *) streams shall be turned into tar, its dust into brimstone, And its land shall become burning asphalt. It won’t be quenched night nor day. Its smoke shall ascend a long time. From generation to generation, it shall lie waste. No one shall pass through it forever and ever. But the pelican and the porcupine shall possess it. The owl and the raven shall dwell in it. Then He shall stretch the measuring line of chaos over it, and the plumb line of emptiness [waste].
[Chaos: Heb., tohu. Emptiness: or “waste”; Heb., bohu. These two terms were used of what the earth became (BERE’SHIYM [Genesis] 1:2) after a cataclysmic judgment and just before being reconstituted for the use of humanity] [ *Edom is a code word for the enemies of Yashar’el and by extension also of YAHUAH!]
Amos 5:18-20 “Woe to you who desire the Day of YAHUAH! Why do you long for the Day of YAHUAH? It is darkness, and not light. As if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him; Or he went into the house and leaned his hand on the wall, and a snake bit him. Won’t the Day of YAHUAH be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, and no brightness in it?
AMOC (Amos) 8:9-10 It will happen in That Day,” says YAHUAH Al, “that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day. I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will make you wear sackcloth on all your bodies, and baldness on every head. I will make it like the mourning for an only son, and its end like a bitter day.
(Also happened when YAHUSHA was on the tree) see ZAKARYAHU (Zech.) 12:9-10
MIYKAH (Micah) 1:2-4 Hear, you peoples, all of you. Listen, O earth, and all that is therein: and let the Master YAHUAH be witness against you, the Master from His Set-apart Hekal [Temple]. For, behold, YAHUAH comes forth out of His place, and will come down and tread on the high places of the earth. The mountains melt under Him, and the valleys split apart, like wax before the fire, like waters that are poured down a steep place.
YO’EL [Joel] 1:15-20 Alas for the Day! For the Day of YAHUAH is at hand, and it will come as destruction from the Almighty.
Isn’t the food cut off before our eyes; joy and gladness from the House of our ELOHIYM? The seeds rot under their clods. The granaries are laid desolate. The barns are broken down, for the grain has withered.
How the animals groan! The herds of livestock are perplexed, because they have no pasture. Yes, the flocks of sheep are made desolate.
YAHUAH, I cry to You, For the fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame has burned all the trees of the field. Yes, the animals of the field pant to You, for the water brooks have dried up, And the fire has devoured the pastures of the wilderness. (Rev. 8 – the Trumpets)
YO’EL [Joel] 2:1-11 Blow the shofar in Tsiyon, and sound an alarm in My Set-apart Mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the Day of YAHUAH comes, for it is close at hand: A Day of darkness and gloominess, a Day of clouds and thick darkness.
As the dawn spreading on the mountains, a great and strong people; there has never been the like, neither will there be any more after them, even to the years of many generations. A fire devours before them, and behind them, a flame burns. The land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them, a desolate wilderness. Yes, and no one has escaped them.
The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses, and as horsemen, so do they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains do they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. [Rev. 9 – 5th Trump/First Woe] At their presence the peoples are in anguish. All faces have grown pale. They run like mighty men.
They climb the wall like warriors. They each march in his line, and they don’t swerve off course. Neither does one jostle another; they march everyone in his path, and they burst through the defenses, and don’t break ranks. They rush on the city. They run on the wall. They climb up into the houses. They enter in at the windows like thieves.
The earth quakes before them. The heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. [6th seal] YAHUAH thunders His voice before His army; for His forces are very great; for he is strong who obeys His command; for the Day of YAHUAH is great and very awesome, and who can endure it?
YO’EL (Joel) 2:30-32 I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood, fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness (total solar eclipse) , and the moon into blood (Blood Moon Tetrads of 2014 & 2015), before the great and terrible Day of YAHUAH comes. [6th Seal]
It will happen that whoever shall call on the Name of YAHUAH shall be delivered (saved); for in Mount Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim there shall be those who escape [are delivered], as YAHUAH has said, and in the remnant, those whom YAHUAH shall call.
(The Great Promise to be Remembered!) …. 3:9-16 Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Stir up the mighty men. Let all the warriors draw near. Let them come up. Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’ Hurry and come, all you surrounding nations, and gather yourselves together.” Cause your mighty ones to come down there, YAHUAH.
“Let the nations arouse themselves, and come up to the valley of Yahushaphat; for there will I sit to judge all the surrounding nations. Put in the sickle; for the harvest is ripe. Come, tread, for the wine press is full, the vats overflow, for their wickedness is great.” Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the Day of YAHUAH is near, in the valley of decision.
The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. YAHUAH will roar from Tsiyon, and thunder from Yerushalayim; and the heavens and the earth will shake; but YAHUAH will be a refuge to His people, and a stronghold to the children of Yashar’el. [Alluded to in Revelation 14:14-20]
DVARIYM [Deut.] 4:29-31 But from there (wherever we are) you shall seek YAHUAH your EL, and you shall find Him, when you search after Him with all your heart and with all your being.
When you are in oppression, and all these things are come on you, in the latter days you shall return to YAHUAH your Al, and listen to His voice: for YAHUAH your EL is a merciful EL; He will not fail you, neither destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 2:10-21 Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust, from before the terror of YAHUAH, and from the esteem of His majesty.
The lofty looks of man will be brought low, the haughtiness of men will be bowed down, and YAHUAH alone will be exalted in That Day. For there will be a Day of YAHUAH of Hosts for all that is proud and haughty, and for all that is lifted up; and it shall be brought low: for all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, for all the oaks of Bashan (both these trees refer to great rulers), for all the high mountains (great nations), for all the hills (small nations) that are lifted up, for every lofty tower, for every fortified wall (belief systems), for all the ships of Tarshish (merchantry), and for all pleasant imagery (mans great achievements).
The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; and YAHUAH alone shall be exalted in That Day. The idols shall utterly pass away.
Men shall go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, from before the terror of YAHUAH, and from the esteem of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.
In That Day, men shall cast away their idols of silver, and their idols of gold, which have been made for themselves to worship, to the moles and to the bats; to go into the caverns of the rocks, and into the clefts of the ragged rocks, from before the terror of YAHUAH, and from the esteem of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily. (6th Seal)
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah]10:12-14 Therefore it will happen that, when YAHUAH has performed His whole work on Mount Tsiyon and on Yerushalayim, I will punish the fruit of the willful proud heart of the king of Ashsur and the insolence of his haughty looks. For he has said, “By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I have understanding: and I have removed the boundaries of the peoples, and have robbed their treasures.
Like a valiant man I have brought down their rulers. My hand has found the riches of the peoples like a nest, and like one gathers eggs that are abandoned, have I gathered all the earth. There was no one who moved their wing, or that opened their mouth, or chirped.”
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 10:20-23 It will come to pass in That Day that the remnant of Yashar’el, and those who have escaped from the House of Ya’aqob will no more again lean on him who struck them, but shall lean on YAHUAH, the QODESH-One of Yashar’el, in truth. A remnant will return, even the remnant of Ya’aqob, to the Mighty EL GIBBOR.
For though your people, Yashar’el, are like the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them shall be saved. A destruction is determined, overflowing with righteousness. For the Master, YAHUAH of Hosts, will make a full end, and that determined, in the midst of all the earth. [Dani’el 9:26-27]
Judgment of “the whore and her daughters”:
YECHIEZQ’EL (Ezekiel) 32:2-12 Son of Adam, take up a lamentation over Par’oh (Beast Power) king of Mitsrayim (world), and tell him, You were likened to a young lion of the nations: yet you are as a crocodile in the seas; and you did break forth with your rivers, and troubled the waters with your feet, and fouled their rivers.
Thus says the Master YAHUAH: I will spread out My net on you (Beast power) with a company of many peoples; and they shall bring you up in My net. I will leave you on the land, I will cast you forth on the open field, and will cause all the birds of the sky to settle on you, and I will satisfy the animals of the whole earth with you. [This is the background for the feast of Leviathan as described in Rev. 19:17-21.]
I will lay your flesh on the mountains, and fill the valleys with your height. I will also water with your blood the land in which you swim, even to the mountains; and the watercourses shall be full of you. When I shall extinguish you [Beast power], I will cover the heavens, and make its stars dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give its light. [According to YAHUAH2:10; 3:15; YAHUSHA 13:10; 24:23; Mat. 24:29, and Rev. 8:12, the time frame for this scenario is the “latter days” the Great Day of YAHUAH”.]
All the bright lights of the sky will I make dark over you, and set darkness over your land, [Rev 16:10 5th plague – The fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the Beast, and his reign was darkened. They gnawed their tongues because of the pain, 16:11 and they blasphemed the ELOHIYM of heaven because of their pains and their sores [first plague]. They didn’t repent of their works.] says the Master YAHUAH.
I will also trouble the hearts of many peoples [Tribulation] , when I shall bring your destruction among the nations, into the countries which you have not known.
Yes, I will make many peoples amazed at you, and their kings shall be horribly afraid for you, when I shall brandish My sword before them; and they shall tremble at every moment, every man for his own life, in the day of your fall.
For thus says the Master YAHUAH: The sword of the king of Babel shall come on you. [the Beast turns on the harlot!] By the swords of the mighty will I cause your multitude to fall; the terrible of the nations are they all: and they shall bring to nothing the pride of Mitsrayim (churchanity), and all its multitude shall be destroyed.
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 13:4-13 YAHUAH of Hosts is mustering the army for the battle. They come from a far country, from the uttermost part of heaven, even YAHUAH, and the weapons of His indignation, to destroy the whole land. Wail; for The Day of YAHUAH is at hand!
It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be feeble, and everyone’s heart will melt. They will be dismayed. Pangs and sorrows will seize them. They will be in pain like a woman in labor. They will look in amazement one at another. Their faces will be faces of flame.
Behold, The Day of YAHUAH comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger; to make the land a desolation, and to destroy its sinners out of it. For the stars of the sky and its constellations will not give their light. The sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause its light to shine. (6th Seal – Rev. 6:12-17)
I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity. I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will humble the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make people more rare than fine gold, even a person than the pure gold of Ophir. Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place in the wrath of YAHUAH of Hosts, and in The Day of His fierce anger.
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 14:24-27 The Sovereign, YAHUAH of Hosts, has sworn, saying, “Surely, as I have thought, so shall it happen; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: that I will break the Assyrian in My land, and tread him under foot on My mountains.
Then his yoke will leave them, and his burden leave their shoulders. This is the plan that is determined for the whole earth. This is the Hand that is stretched out over all the nations. For YAHUAH of Hosts has planned, and who can stop it? His Hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 19:1-4 The message concerning Mitsraiym: “Behold, YAHUAH rides on a swift cloud, and comes to Mitsraiym. The idols of Mitsraiym will tremble at his presence; and the heart of Mitsraiym will melt in its midst. I will stir up the Mitsriy against the Mitsriy, and they will fight everyone against his brother, and everyone against his neighbor; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. The spirit of Mitsraiym will fail in its midst.
I will destroy its counsel. They will seek the idols, the charmers, those who have familiar spirits, and the wizards. I will give over the Mitsriy into the hand of a cruel lord. A fierce king will rule over them,” says the Master, YAHUAH of Hosts.
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 24:1-6 Behold, YAHUAH makes the land empty, makes it waste, turns it upside down, and scatters its inhabitants. It will be as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the creditor, so with the debtor; as with the taker of interest, so with the giver of interest.
The land will be utterly emptied and utterly laid waste; for YAHUAH has spoken this word. The earth mourns and fades away. The world languishes and fades away. The lofty people of the earth languish. The earth also is polluted under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Torot, changed the law, and broken the everlasting Covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell therein are found guilty. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 24:18-23 It will happen that he who flees from the noise of the fear will fall into the pit; and he who comes up out of the midst of the pit will be taken in the snare; for the windows on high are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble. The earth is utterly broken. The earth is torn apart. The earth is shaken violently. The earth will stagger like a drunken man, and will sway back and forth like a hammock. Its disobedience will be heavy on it, and it will fall and not rise again.
It shall happen in That Day that YAHUAH will punish the army of the high ones on high, and the kings of the earth on the earth. They shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison; and after many days shall they be visited.
Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for YAHUAH of Hosts will reign on Mount Tsiyon, and in Yerushalayim; and before his elders will be esteemed. [Rev. 20:1-3]
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 26:20-21 Come, my people, enter into your chambers, and shut your doors behind you. Hide yourself for a little moment, until the indignation is past. [Flood imagery]
For, behold, YAHUAH comes forth out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. The earth also will disclose her blood, and will no longer cover her slain. 27:1 In That Day, YAHUAH with His hard and great and strong sword will punish leviathan, the fleeing serpent, and leviathan the twisted serpent; and He will kill the dragon that is in the sea.
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 28:21-22 For YAHUAH will rise up as on Mount Perazim. He will be angry as in the valley of Gib’on; that He may do His work, His unusual work, and bring to pass His act, His extraordinary act. Now therefore don’t be scoffers, lest your bonds be made strong; for I have heard a decree of destruction from the Master, YAHUAH of Hosts, on the whole earth.
YESHA’YAHU [Isaiah] 30:27-33 Behold, the Name of YAHUAH comes from far away, burning with His anger, and in thick rising smoke. His lips are full of indignation, and His tongue is as a devouring fire. His breath is as an overflowing stream that reaches even to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction; and a bridle that leads to ruin will be in the jaws of the peoples. You will have a song, as in the night when a QODESH feast is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a flute to come to YAHUAH’s Mountain, to Yashar’el’s Rock.
YAHUAH will cause His QODESH Voice to be heard, and will show the descent of His Arm, with the indignation of His anger, and the flame of a devouring fire, with a blast, storm, and hailstones. (the plagues of Rev.) For through the Voice of YAHUAH the Assyrian will be dismayed. He will strike him with His rod. Every stroke of the rod of punishment, which YAHUAH will lay on him, will be with the sound of tambourines and harps.
He will fight with them in battles, brandishing weapons. For his burning place has long been ready. Yes, for the king it is made ready. He has made its pyre deep and large with fire and much wood. YAHUAH’s Breath, like a stream of sulfur, kindles it. 2nd Thess. 2: 8 Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, whom the Master YAHUSHA will consume with the Breath of His mouth and destroy by the splendor of His coming.
YESHA’YAHAU [Isaiah] 34:1-4 Come near, you nations, to hear! Listen, you peoples. Let the earth and all it contains hear; the world, and everything that comes from it. For YAHUAH is enraged against all the nations, and angry with all their army (one army by this time). He has utterly destroyed them.
He has given them over for slaughter. Their slain will also be cast out, and the stench of their dead bodies will come up; and the mountains will melt in their blood. All of the army of the sky will be dissolved. The sky will be rolled up like a scroll, and all its armies will fade away, as a leaf fades from off a vine or a fig tree. (6th Seal)
YIRMEYAHU [Jeremiah] 25:30-33 Therefore prophesy you against them all these words, and tell them, YAHUAH shall roar from on high, and utter His Voice from His QODESH (Set-apart) habitation; He shall mightily roar against His fold; He shall give a shout, as those who tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
A noise shall come even to the end of the earth; for YAHUAH has a controversy with the nations; He shall enter into judgment with all flesh: as for the wicked, He shall give them to the sword, says YAHUAH. Thus says YAHUAH of Hosts, Behold, disaster shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great storm shall be raised up from the uttermost parts (coasts) of the earth.
The slain of YAHUAH shall be at that Day from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.
TSEPHANYAHU [Zephaniah] 1:2-12 YAHUAH says “I will utterly sweep away everything off of the surface of the Land. I will sweep away man and animal. I will sweep away the birds of the sky, the fish of the sea, and the heaps of rubble with the wicked.
I will cut off man from the surface of the Land. YAHUAH says, I will stretch out My hand against Yahudah, and against all the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. I will cut off the remnant of Ba’al from this place: the name of the idolatrous and pagan priests, those who worship the army of the sky on the housetops, those who worship and swear by YAHUAH and also swear by Malkam, those who have turned back from following YAHUAH, and those who haven’t sought YAHUAH nor inquired after Him.
Be silent at the presence of the Sovereign YAHUAH, for the Day of YAHUAH is at hand. [Amos 5:18-20; Mal. 3:2-3] For YAHUAH has prepared a sacrifice. He has consecrated His guests. It will happen in the Day of YAHUAH’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, the king’s sons, and all those who are clothed with foreign clothing [Matt. 22].
In That Day, I will punish all those who leap over the threshold [“who walk by the laws of the Filistines”], who fill their master’s house with violence and deceit.
In That Day, says YAHUAH, there will be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, a wailing from the second quarter, and a great crashing from the hills. Wail, you inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the people of Kena’an are undone! All those who were loaded with silver are cut off. It will happen at That Time, that I will search Yerushalayim with lamps, and I will punish the men who are settled on their dregs, who say in their heart, “ YAHUAH will not do good, neither will He do evil.”
Aramaic, … who lie at ease upon their wealth. Having not found YAHUAH when they sought Him half-heartedly, they went lazily back to what they were doing, thinking there was no reason to repent.]
TSEPHANYAHU [Zephaniah] 1:13-18 Their wealth will become a spoil, and their houses a desolation. Yes, they will build houses, but won’t inhabit them. They will plant vineyards, but won’t drink their wine. The great Day of YAHUAH is near.
It is near, and hurries greatly, the Voice of The Day of YAHUAH. The mighty man cries there bitterly. That Day is a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish, a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness, a day of the shofar and battle-alarm, against the fortified cities, and against the high battlements. [Battle-alarm: Heb, t’ruah, the term for the first day of the seventh month (Lev. 23:24), so this will be when The Day being described will fall in the annual fall calendar.]
I will bring distress on men [great tribulation], that they will walk like blind men, because they have sinned against YaHuWaH, and their blood will be poured out like dust, and their flesh like dung.
Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them in The Day of YaHuWaH’s wrath, but the whole earth will be devoured by the fire of His jealousy; for He will accomplish a complete – not to mention speedy – destruction for all who inhabit the earth.
TSEPHANYAHU 3:8-9 “Therefore wait for Me,” says YAHUAH, “until The Day that I rise up to the prey, for My determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour on them My indignation, even all My fierce anger, for all the earth will be devoured with the fire of My jealousy.
[This verse includes all the letters of the Ibiy (Hebrew) alphabet, signifying that Ibriy is the language being referred to in the next verse:]
For then I will return to the people a pure language, that they may all call on the Name of YAHUAH, to serve Him with one consent.
Daniyel 8:19 And he said: ‘Behold, I will make you know what shall be in the latter time of the indignation (end time of the rage – Great Day of YAHUAH); for it belongs to the appointed time of the end. (for at Mo’ed – the end! / for at the Appointed Time – the end! = one of the feast days. …Yom Kippur?)
YirmeYahuw [Jeremiah] 25:15-29 For thus says YAHUAH, the ELOHIYM of Yashar’el, to me: take this cup of the wine of wrath at My Hand [YAHUSHA – the one who will bring YAHUAH’s wrath upon men.
Rev. 19:11-16], and cause all the nations, to whom I send you, to drink it. They shall drink, and reel back and forth, and act like madmen, because of the sword [symbol of Islam] that I shall send among them [to divide them].
Then took I the cup at YAHUAH’s hand, and made all the nations to drink, to whom YAHUAH had sent me: to wit, Yerushalayim, and the cities of Yahudah, and its sovereigns, and its princes, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, a hissing, and a curse, as it is this day; Par’oh sovereign of Mitsrayim [Egypt], and his servants, and his princes, and all his people; and all the mixed people, and all the sovereigns of the land of the Uwts, and all the sovereigns of the Pelishtiym, (namely, Ashqelown, and Azzah, and Eqrown, and the remnant of Ashdowd);
Edom, and Mo’ab, and the sons of Ammown [modern day Jordan]; and all the sovereigns of Tsor, and all the sovereigns of Tsiydon, and the sovereigns of the coastlands which is across the sea; Dedan, and Teyma, and Buwz, and all who are in the farthest corners; and all the sovereigns of Aram, and all the sovereigns of the mixed people who dwell in the wilderness; and all the sovereigns of Zimriy, and all the sovereigns of Eylam, and all the sovereigns of the Mayday; and all the sovereigns of the north, far and near, one with another; and all the kingdoms of the world, which are on the surface of the earth: and the sovereign of Sheshach [Babel] shall drink after them.
You shall tell them, Thus says YAHUAH Master of Armies, the ELOHIYM of Yashar’el: Drink, and be drunk, vomit [be confused], fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I shall send among you. It shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at your hand to drink, then you shall tell them, Thus says YAHUAH Master of Armies: You shall surely drink. For, behold, I begin to work evil at the city which is called by My Name; and should you be utterly unpunished? You shall not be unpunished; for I shall call for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth, says YAUAH Master of Armies. [2nd seal]
ZAKARYAHU [Zechariah] 14:1-14 Behold, a Day of YAHUAH comes, when your spoil will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all nations against Yerushalayim to battle; and the city will be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city will go out into captivity, and the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.
Then YAHUAH will go out and fight against those nations, as when He fought in the day of battle.
His feet will stand in that day on the Mount of Olives, which is before Yerushalayim on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in two, from east to west, making a very great valley. Half of the mountain will move toward the north, and half of it toward the south. You shall flee by the valley of My mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azel; yes, you shall flee, just like you fled from before the earthquake in the days of UzziYahuw sovereign of Yahudah.
YAHUAH my EL will come, and all the QODESHIYM (Set-apart ones) with You. It will happen in that Day, that there will not be light, cold, or frost. It will be a unique Day which is known to YAHUAH; not day, and not night; but it will come to pass, that at evening time there will be light.
1 It will happen in that Day, that living waters will go out from Yerushalayim; half of them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea; in summer and in winter will it be. YAHUAH will be Sovereign over all the earth.
In that Day there will be one YAHUAH, and His Name One. All the land will be made like the Arabah, from Geba to Rimmon south of Yerushalayim; and she will be lifted up, and will dwell in her place, from Binyamin’s gate to the place of the first gate, to the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananel to the sovereign’s wine presses.
Men will dwell therein, and there will be no more curse; but Yerushalayim will dwell safely. This will be the plague with which YAHUAH will strike all the peoples who have warred against Yerushalayim: their flesh will consume away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will consume away in their sockets, and their tongue will consume away in their mouth.
It will happen in that Day, that a great panic from YAHUAH will be among them; and they will lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand will rise up against the hand of his neighbor. Yahudah also will fight at Yerushalayim; and the wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered together: gold, and silver, and clothing, in great abundance.
MAL’AKY (Malachi) 4:1-3 “For, behold, The Day comes, it burns as a furnace; and all the proud, and all who work wickedness, will be stubble; and The Day that comes will burn them up,” says YAHUAH of Hosts, “that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
But to you who fear My Name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in her wings. You will go out, and leap like calves of the stall. You shall tread down the wicked; for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet in The Day that I am preparing,” says YAHUAH of Hosts.
KEPHA SHEMIY (2 Peter) 3:10 “But the Day of YAHUAH will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
3:11 Therefore since all these things will be destroyed like this, what kind of people ought you to be in Set-apart conduct and the fear of ELOHIYM,
3:12 looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the Day of YAHUAH, which will cause the burning heavens to be dissolved, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?
3:13 But, according to His promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.”
KEPHA RI’SHON (1 Peter) 1:3-5 Blessed be YAHUAH and Father of our Master YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH, Who according to His great mercy, has begotten us afresh into a living hope through the resurrection of YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH from being dead, into an inherited possession that is not liable to decay [Matt. 6:19], unsoiled, and unfading, having been kept under guard for you in heavenly realms who are protected by the Power of YAHUAH through belief for a deliverance ready to be revealed in the final decisive epoch.
