It is known to the New Agers as the ‘polar shift’. Recently it has been given credibility in the movie 2012. Even today I read in the paper about a Sydney man preparing for it by hoarding food and emergency supplies at an undisclosed location in the Blue Mountains. Like the ants, he is a wise man. As wise as the defence forces and government agencies with their deep underground bases packed full like cities with everything they will need when it occurs. And what will they all lose if this scheduled event never occurs? Not a thing but some time and effort.
Yet the Church has not the least idea of a major astronomical event that will affect our whole planet on a previously unheard of scale. Satan had prepared and forewarned his people. YHWH tries to do the same with His, but their ears are so stopped up with the wax of deception about the rapture, and their eyes blinded by the light of their own self-righteousness, they neither see His Word not hear His voice. Not about this anyway.
This polar shift is in the Bible is variously called:
- the great day of His wrath (REV. 6:17);
- the day of the Lord (JOEL 1:15, 2:1);
- quaking of the earth (JOEL 2:10,2:1);
- the great and terrible day of YHWH (JOEL 2:31);
- shaking of the earth (JOEL 3:16);
- the indignation of YHWH (IS. 34:2);
- the day of His fierce anger (IS. 13:13).
How could such a momentous event be missed by so many, by almost the entire Church in fact? I read a LOT of books. Mostly Christian. In only one of those have I read of this worldwide cataclysm. It was in Texe Marrs’ book, Dark Secrets of the New Age. And he was quoting from a secular New Age book by one Ruth Montgomery, so-called ‘Herald of the New Age’. The late (I believe) Ms Montgomery received her information from ‘spirit guides’, or demons, as Christians will know them. In addition to a World War III, she talks about:
- a catastrophic shift of the earth’s axis causing floods and other natural disasters,
- millions of people dying,
- followed by a new World Government ruled by an elite group of twelve wise men,
- the brains of all humans to be linked,
- a New Age Bible,
- a ‘Christ’ who reigns as the New World Ruler,
- laws passed prohibiting marriage,
- Christian principles being eradicated.
Here are some of the many SCRIPTURES describing in vivid detail YHWH’s great and terrible day:
ISAYAH 13:9, 10, 13 Behold, the day of YHWH cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations…shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened…the moon shall not…shine. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of YHWH of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger.
ISAYAH 24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard…
JOEL 2:10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
JOEL 3:16 …the heavens and the earth shall shake:
MATTHEW 24:29 …the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven…
LUKE 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and the moon, and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring. Men’s hearts failing them for fear…for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
II PETER 3:10 But the day of YHWH shall come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with a fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burnt up.
REVELATION 6:12-17 And I beheld when He opened the sixth seal…there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heavens departed as a scrole when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places…For the great day of His wrath is come, and who is able to stand?
This great day of…wrath is brought about by the opening of the sixth seal, the events of which take place at the hands of the four angels (REV. 7:1-2). These take place AFTER the Second World War (the opening of the fourth seal), and the opening of the fifth seal. The martyred saints, Old Testament and New, who cry out are told to rest yet for a little season (REV. 6:11). The shaking of the earth having definitely not yet happened, we are currently about the time of the fifth seal. Well, except for earth tremors in Bali, Equador, Sydney, and Cairns, I haven’t felt the earth shake recently or in my lifetime, have you? Not so it came off its axis anyway.
That’s why it is called the polar shift. It is believed the earth will come off its axis and do a complete flip. And according to the fascinating books by Immanuel Velikovsky, it has happened in the distant past. Using historical, geological, astronomical, and archeological evidence, Mr Velikovsky suggests a year was once exactly 360 days, but a polar flip caused the earth to revolve more slowly and at a different angle. If suddenly the earth was to move a much greater distance on its axis than usual, the stars would appear to roll up like a scroll (REV. 6:14) or fall from heaven (MATT. 24:29). This would result in the North and South Poles being in a different geographical position so their icecaps would melt (II PET. 3:10), especially if the poles ended up in the tropics. And some of earth’s population, being thrust into polar regions, would instantly freeze, like the mammoths which have been found with snap frozen food in their mouths.
Imagine the many other consequences: earthquakes in areas with fault lines; erupting volcanoes making the sky black with ash; massive tidal waves washing away small, low-lying islands and coastal areas ; rocks falling; mankind, the victims, praying to die.
And the fulfilment of the great Day of Atonement shall have been given to the Church for the first time. In MATTHEW 24:29-30 Yahshua stated that when the polar shift occurs, then His sign shall appear in heaven, the sky. (The Day of) Trumpets to herald the King, then ten days later the great and terrible Day of Atonement/YHWH. We can assume from Scripture then that the ‘shift’ shall start at Yahshua’s return and last for ten days: Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days…(DAN. 1:12); …ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life (REV. 2:10).
In the Old Testament, for the Day of Atonement, two goats were taken as a sin offering (LEV. 16:5, 8-10), one for YHWH as a sacrifice for sin, the other for a scapegoat to be released into the wilderness.
During this ten-day period many things will happen, not the least being the angels gathering the Elect from the four winds, which is for a future post or this one will become an encyclopedia. A significant detail will be, as Ruth Montgomery pointed out, that millions will die. Among the dead will be a great multitude of nominal Christians saved from even worse days to come upon the earth (IS. 57:1). They are depicted in REVELATION 7:9 arriving in Heaven. Much of the Church believes these are the raptured saints. They came out of the great tribulation, says the angel (REV. 7:14). Their robes, are washed in the blood of the Lamb. Like Him they are a sacrifice. The martyrs under the altar are also given white robes (REV. 6:9-11). These new martyrs are the goat made as a sin offering on the Day of Atonement.
The other goat, the one sent into the wilderness, are those poor, wretched, blind, naked souls who survive the great tribulation or polar shift and must remain on earth to endure the FINAL SEVEN YEARS, the fulfilment of the Feast of Tabernacles. Interestingly, a tidal wave can actually wash a person’s clothes off, leaving them naked, a sign of the Laodicean Church whose age we are now in. Being washed along by a tidal wave would feel like being spewed out of YHWH’s mouth, I should imagine.
There are many conjectures about what will cause this shift in the earth’s axis, among them meteorites or a huge volcano. I believe it will come from the hand of man through HAARP technology. The end of this post will be in the next post. HAARP will come later, but is easily found on many Internet sites.
