15. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining.
16. The Lord will thunder and roar from Zion and utter his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge for His people and a stronghold to the children of Israel. Amp.
This is the last days. Revelation 6:12-14 is telling the opening of the 6th seal and there is a great earthquake. Then the sun, moon and are darkened and the stars fall to the earth. I believe there is a spiritual explanation and a physical explanation. Therefore, we do not have to wait for this to happen in the natural before He returns.
This happens right before the wrath is poured out and who is able to stand? The Lord will thunder from Zion, His bride. They will be His mouthpiece and will speak His warnings loudly and with strength. They will roar! What would the Lord say?
The earth and heavens are shaking, and all feel it. They know something is happening and their ears are opened maybe for the first time in their lives. He has everyone’s attention. We know what He would say. It is time to repent and prepare to meet your God!
It will be a time of great judgment. The wicked will reap their folly and suffer greatly. But He will be a refuge and stronghold for His people. He will put them in the cleft of the rock. He told Moses, “You cannot see My face, for no man shall see Me and live.” Ex.33:20
We must have Jesus as our Savior covering our sins with His blood or we will not make it.
Revelation 6:16 And they called to the mountains and the rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him Who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.
We see that His face will be revealed at the outpouring of His wrath. This means that no man shall live if they are not in Christ, the cleft of the rock. They are running underground to hide but it will not protect them. If they find shelter they will probably be stuck there forever. For His people, it will be the most wonderful sight to behold! To see His face after all this time. What could be better!
We must remember that all of this begins with a tremendous earthquake. Earthquake activity has greatly increased in the past 50 years. Volcanoes and earthquakes go hand in hand. It is like the earth is an egg that is cracking. It eventually cracks enough that it falls apart. Just imagine how many cracks the earth has right now.
Revelation 16:18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not as men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great. KJV
The big one is really coming. Are we ready?
