14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. 16 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! 17 For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?”
'The Heavens receded like a scroll'--I find it difficult to interpret the passage any other way than by reading nuclear bomb. The only question is just how that bomb will be unleashed upon the earth in the earth's final hours. According to this article, a 2004 study estimated that an EMP (Electronic Magnetic Pulse) attack could wipe out 90% of America within 1.5 years due to the radiation from the blast.
One day the blast will happen, from whom and where, no one knows. The effects of this blast however fit right in line with Biblical prophecy of 2000+ years ago. This was never a possibility until the 20th century. As each century has become bloodier and bloodier, and war and bloodshed become more frequent, I find it difficult to believe that the 21st century will escape the powerful and deadly effect of this weapon.
Get your soul prepared to meet God, before you get to the point that you cry to the rocks and mountains to 'fall on us.'
Just think. A nuclear device carried aloft by an Iranian rocket somewhere near the Gulf of Mexico and a blinding flash in the skies.
Within 12 to 18 months, experts predict, 90 percent of Americans would be dead.
That’s the catastrophic threat from the resulting electromagnetic pulse signal, or EMP, that an upcoming conference will address.
The group says it is “dedicated to defending and advancing Western Civilization against the kinetic and cultural onslaught of Shariah Islam.”
Featured speakers are former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, CIA Covert Operative and WND contributor Reza Kahlili, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, “One Second After” author William Forstchen, former Director of Strategic Defense Initiative Organization Henry Cooper, former National Intelligence Council Chairman Fritz Erdmarth and William Graham, President Reagan’s science adviser and chairman of the EMP Commission.
Founded by Tom Trento, United West began in 2007 as the Florida Security Council. Trento’s team created a national footprint through speaking, writing, video presentations and investigative reporting. As the organization took on more issues, including the encroachment of Islamic law in the United States, it expanded to become The United West as an umbrella to oversee a wide range of efforts.
It was Forstchen who described the impact of a nuclear bomb exploding somewhere in the skies over the U.S. Electronics would simply be disintegrated, he said.
Computers would cease functioning, and every system that relies on those components – food and fuel deliveries, communications, production, manufacturing, travel and everything associated – would halt.
Forstchen cited a 2004 study on the impact of such an assault on America.
“Testimony in that study said 90 percent, let me repeat that, 90 percent of all Americans would die within 12-18 months of an EMP attack,” he said.
Kahlili warns that Iran already has been practicing with missile launches from ships that simply put the payload straight up and high in the sky.
“That is the signature … of training for an EMP launch.”
Kahlili confirmed it would take only 60 seconds for such a warhead to be launched, and the result would “destabilize the infrastructure of America within hours.”
