This is a continued post about the soon coming 3 days of darkness. If you haven’t read the first post that have explained about this event, you can read it HERE. It was a brief post that was act as an introduction about what is to come, however, it is very important to understand that this event is going to mimic the biblical patterns of the past in a more intricate explanation, which will layout on this post or on the upcoming continuation of this post.
The 3 days of darkness do mimics the pattern as described in the Book of Jonah and many other sources. The sign of Jonah that was explained in the past post can have dual meanings, therefore, even though the sign has been shown through constellations and all that around November, 2013, does not mean the sign of Jonah would not be a pattern for the 3 days of darkness.
Let’s take a look at these verses below:
And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt. Exodus 10:21
And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. Revelation 9:1-2
In Exodus 10:21, it talked about how darkness has came over the land of Egypt, even darkness that may be “felt”. This is not just something that is blocking the sun out nor something between us and the sun. See Revelation 9:1-2; the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. It is in the air, not just something that came between the sun and the earth. It talked about the air is being darkened, not just the sun.
Let’s take a look at this verse below about locusts:
And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. Revelation 9:3
And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left. And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts. And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such. For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt. Exodus 10:12-15
In Exodus 10, it talked about locusts that just eat vegetation, but as outlined in Exodus 10:14 described them as “very grievous”. So these were locusts that were unlike anything that has seen before, but it said neither after them shall be such, which means they will never be seen again.
Concerning these locusts, it said that they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened. It was saying something in the air, just as Revelation 9 that was pertaining to the locusts.
In Exodus 15, it described about that these locusts ate every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left. Here is an important thing is that there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.
So, here in Exodus, it talked about the locusts, and then the darkness came (the 3 days of darkness) that have lead to the Book of Revelation. In Revelation 9, it said that the darkness comes and is followed by the locusts, which is the opposite of what have been described in Exodus as the locusts came, then it followed by the darkness. Here is a mirror of the same thing, but a reversed reflection just like when you see your face in the mirror.
Another thing that is reversed was in Exodus about the locusts. The locusts that has devoured all vegetation, was described as how it will never be seen again. However, over in Revelation 9, it said that the locusts are not to hurt the vegetation that appears.
Let’s look at the verses below about the contrast:
And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. Revelation 9:3-4
Looking back in Revelation 9:1-2, it did not give us the timeframe in regards of how many days of darkness would last. But the fact that it connects back to the locusts, where in Exodus was locusts then darkness, here in Revelation was darkness then locusts. The point here is about the reversing of these two things.
The bottomless pit as described has been opened, and here is the releasing of the darkness-the demons and spiritual darkness that is coming upon the earth. Spiritual darkness has been growing rapidly, and when this bottomless pit opens, it is going to explode. There is also manifestation of physical darkness because it said that both the sun and the air were darkened.
As the locusts as seen in Exodus, it said that it will not be seen ever again, which means the locusts that will be seen in Revelation would be totally different.
Let’s look at the following verses below:
And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. Revelation 9:5-11
There is a great spiritual and physical darkness release here. When the bottomless pit opens, it would be horrific. In Revelation, there are 3 woes and this is the first one. The woes represent special occurrences; things that are more intense than the other things that are spoken in Revelation. The things in Revelation spoken were intense, but these woes go beyond that.
There is a significance to look at the term “foo fighters”, which means UFOs and mysterious aerial phenomena. There is an American rock band, an artist called Dave Grohl was playing the role of Satan. An image search for his pictures lead to a photo that has depicted the numbers “666”. This man Dave represented Satan, who is the lead singer of Foo Fighters, which represents the UFOs that are the demonic entities that will introduce themselves to mankind as aliens and not as demons. This is part of the great delusion. The first woe represents the delusion. There is a connection from the UFOs to the antichrist-666. Satan enters the antichrist, and over these demons that will be released from the pit, who is the king over them. The main characteristics of scorpions is that they are nocturnal, which means they are active at night. Will these scorpions just come out at night? It might be.
The word “nocturnal” connotes the verse below:
Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Psalm 91:5
Part 2 shall be continued in another post.
