IS THERE A POLAR SHIFT COMING? - PART ONE



IS THERE A
POLAR SHIFT COMING?
PART ONE

ONE of the primary reasons for such erratic weather in the world, along with volcanic and earthquake activity THAT IS NOW INCREASING RAPIDLY, is the prophecy concerning what could only be called a LITERAL SHIFTING OF THE POLES, with the earth realigning itself upon a whole new polar axis. This prophecy can be found in Isaiah 24; Isaiah 13:13; and Jeremiah 50:46. There are other references as well. This article does not debate the MECHANICS of the event itself so much, that is, whether the shift is CRUSTAL or the ENTIRE EARTH, or if there is another TRIGGER EVENT, such as POLAR ICE CAP DISPLACEMENT, A DIPOLE REVERSAL OR EXCURSION, SOLAR CORONAL MASS EJECTIONS THAT HIT THE EARTH, PLANETARY ALIGNMENT, COMET OR SOMETHING ELSE, but rather with what the Bible declares is the trigger event. What we are going to investigate is what Scripture says, and what several other books of the ancients have to say, concerning a POLAR SHIFT. That there is one coming is certain, according to the Bible.
The vast majority of people who have investigated this matter, as with those who investigate the UFO, are not Christians. As such, they place the Bible's comments about such an event along side other works, and do not give the Bible the pre-eminent place it deserves, for no other book of prophecy in the world has the accuracy of Scripture, which is to say, 100% in all detail - something disputed by those in unbelief and who are unwilling to actually delve into its mysteries. These books argue and debate endlessly about the mechanics of this shift, or even if there will be one, or ever was in the past. As none of us were there to watch it, and very few alive today will live long enough to go through it and come out the other side to analyze it, the debates may rage, but the actual facts lay buried in Scripture. It is not until the very end that EVEN THE PEOPLE OF GOD begin to understand what is approaching - and that there is no escape!
There is a reason why Jesus Christ warned ALL MANKIND to SEARCH HIM OUT, TO FIND HIM, TO LAY HOLD OF HIM, and to STAND BEFORE HIM WORTHY, because, He implied, WHAT WAS COMING UPON THE EARTH COULD NOT BE ESCAPED ANY OTHER WAY - no matter where you lived, not matter what you believed, no matter what, the COMING CATACLYSMIC CHANGES would "cleanse the earth" of all EVIL, and mankind, throughout all of Scripture, is labeled EVIL. This change was so horrible, so all encompassing, and so thorough, that only a ver few, other than God's elect, would survive it. It is also inevitable, and mankind cannot change it - no matter what he does, for God is operating upon a time schedule - and also has shown us the future decisions of mankind.
There is a hue and cry going fourth from those who study prophecy, or who get visions, and the mass media, that prophecy is a "warning", and that if mankind heeds the warning, then the prophecy will not come true - that is true only under severely limited parameters when it comes to Bible prophecy - for prophecy is NOT prediction - it is history to God, who resides OUTSIDE time and space, who SAW THE DECISIONS MANKIND MADE, witnessed the future, and gave it to HIS PROPHETS, who in turn wrote it down and gave it to us. Mankind cannot change the prophecy, for it ACTUALLY ALREADY DONE - just not unfolded to us yet.
Those in the earth sciences, with rare exception, believe in the Doctrine of Uniformitaranism, which is to say that the earth does not go through periodic cataclysmic changes, but rather is "steady-state", that all changes take place very slowly, over millions of years, and therefore, because their doctrine is the truth, reject out-of-hand all warnings that this concept is untrue, or might be untrue. They scoff at, and mock all those who attempt to warn them. They point to modern history, which shows no such activity, but ignore a vast amount of ancient writings and label them "myths". So be it, ignorance corrected is wisdom in the end, even if they cannot extricate themselves from their fate.
We are not debating in this article the validity of much modern science - for the Bible makes it very clear that mankind, professing itself to be wise, bases much of their so-called science upon false premises, and therefore draws totally wrong conclusions, and by those, develops a totally wrong concept of the earth, the heavens and how all things actually work. Man, the Bible says, become FOOLS. This is not to say that KNOWLEDGE DOES NOT COME, for it does, and there are many Christian scientists who have used the Bible as their guide, and adopted the knowledge of it to the science of the day. It is not until the end, as the CATACLYSMIC CHANGES ARE UPON THEM, that the vast majority of scientists and the world, for that matter, realize that they have made a tragic mistake, not only in science, but in their theology, which is typically very ANTICHRIST in nature.
This article takes the position that the Bible IS TRUE, and that, no matter how at variance with science it may appear to be, IT IS NOT AT VARIANCE WITH ACTUAL REALITY, NOR ACTUAL OBSERVABLE FACT, but rather at variance with THEORY, based upon wrong premise, and further, that the Bible tells mankind, that IF THEY WILL DO AS GOD COMMANDED, THEY WILL FIND OUT IT IS TRUE, BEYOND ALL QUESTION TRUE, and that NOT ONE DOT, NOR ONE TITTLE SHALL BE REMOVED, UNTIL ALL BE FULFILLED. I take that position because the Bible takes that position - having claimed it was written by the God of all Gods, the Spirit of all Spirits - and that what He says to be true, IS TRUE, and SHALL COME TO PASS. The Bible is a BOOK OF ZERO OPTIONS. In fact, I WARN EVERYONE READING THIS THAT THE WORD OF GOD IS TRUE, TOTALLY TRUE, AND WILL COME TO PASS AS WRITTEN, EVEN IF WE DO NOT BELIEVE IT.
Let's begin with Isaiah 24:1:
"Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste,
AND TURNETH IT UPSIDE DOWN,
and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof."
In short, according to Bible, THE LORD WILL LITERALLY CAUSE THE EARTH TO BE TURNED OVER, TO SHIFT ITS POLAR AXIS, TO ALL OF A SUDDEN GO OUT OF CONTROL. It does not tell us if this is a CRUSTAL DISPLACEMENT, as some have suggested, of it the ENTIRE EARTH FROM IT CORE OUTWARD, TURNS. It IMPLIES that the ENTIRE EARTH IS TURNED. Now we cannot claim from this Scripture a complete 180 degree change, but one massive enough (AT LEAST 90 DEGREES AND PROBABLY MUCH MORE), that it destroys the nations of the world, and scatters abroad the people of the earth. This is NOT A MAGNETIC POLE SHIFT - although one may occur just prior to this literal shift, that we do not know. It has been speculated that a dipole reversal or an excursion would cause major earth upheaval, which might be a trigger event. That may well be a fact, and it may precede a literal Polar Shift. However, the event as recorded in Isaiah, and verified in many other places, is a LITERAL POLAR SHIFT, of the ENTIRE GLOBE BEING TURNED "UPSIDE DOWN".
There are those who maintain this is ancient prophecy, fulfilled in the long distant past, but that is easily disproved. This and other prophecy are clearly a LATTER DAY EVENT, an event termed to take place in the DAY OF THE LORD, a name given to the time of GREAT TRIBULATION. Then there are those who claim that this verse does not speak of a literal polar shift. It most certainly does, for the ancient language is very clear, the EARTH IS IN FACT TURNED UPSIDE DOWN - and to turn the world UPSIDE DOWN means to SHIFT ITS POLES, NORTH TO SOUTH, SOUTH TO NORTH. There is much other evidence in Scripture to support such a concept, as we shall see.
The word "turneth" means to BOW DOWN, to make crooked, that is to MOVE DOWNWARD. To "bow" means to LOWER THE FACE, from UPRIGHT downward. As the face of the earth UPRIGHT is as it is today, with the North Pole at about 23.5 degrees, then to BOW DOWN WOULD BE TO LOWER THE NORTH POLE DOWNWARD, TOWARDS THE SOUTH. The words UPSIDE DOWN, means THE FACE OF THAT WHICH TURNS, TO TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN. In other words, to TURN OVER, TO TOPPLE, as a TOP TOPPLES at the end of its spin. The word "empty" means TO DEPOPULATE, to LAY WASTE, to ANNIHILATE. When put together there is clearly a POLAR SHIFT, a massive CHANGE IN THE POLES, SO THAT THE EARTH LITERALLY TOPPLES OVER IN SPACE.
Polar shifts are a well supported concept, AND THERE IS EVIDENCE OF PREVIOUS POLAR SHIFTS, AS WELL AS MAGNETIC POLE SHIFTS, WHICH CAN BE SEEN IN ROCK FORMATIONS, through magnetic field alignments, and the finding of the bodies of tropical animal life, that had been, suddenly and without warning, quick frozen while they were eating.
This event occurs, according to Scripture, because the earth suddenly changes rotation, but the atmosphere does not. This generates gigantic roll clouds as the atmosphere, through friction, is pulled along the surface of the earth. Because the air cannot keep up with the earth's now rapidly moving surface, huge roll clouds develop (such as in severe squall lines) , and a huge vacuum is created. Almost within seconds, cold outer atmosphere winds strike the earth and QUICK FREEZE ANYTHING IN THEIR PATH. The wind velocities would have to exceed several hundred if not thousands of miles per hour. The temperature would reach near absolute zero.
Revelation 6:14 speaks of this:
"And the heaven DEPARTED AS A SCROLL WHEN IT IS ROLLED TOGETHER;...."
The heaven spoken of here is the FIRST HEAVEN, that is the atmosphere of earth. It departs as a SCROLL WHEN IT IS ROLLED TOGETHER. Those that have witnessed a severe squall line of thunderstorms have seen what is known as a ROLL CLOUD that advances ahead of the main line of storms. These roll clouds are severe in nature. Imagine then, a HUGE ROLL CLOUD that develops as the air attempts to keep up with the rapidly moving ground below it. Because it cannot, huge breaks begin to occur, the heaven rolls up, leaving a huge vacuum which is instantly filled from the higher altitudes. INSTANT FREEZE OF EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH!
"The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the
EARTH IS MOVED EXCEEDINGLY."
(Isaiah 24:19)
What does God mean when He says the earth is moved exceedingly? Well, it means what it says, THE EARTH WILL BE LITERALLY MOVED BY A GREAT AMOUNT. The cause? Isaiah and Jeremiah tell us: A nuclear attack upon America that is so devastating it moves the ENTIRE PLANET! Let's take a look at some definitions: The word "broken" means TO SPOIL BY BREAKING IN PIECES. The word "moved" means A WAVERING, TO FALL. As the earth is inclined about 23.5 degrees, then this means that THE EARTH WAVERS, that is IT FALLS, and "falls" mean DOWNWARD, as to BOW THE HEAD. In our language, it would mean that the earth suddenly looses it equilibrium in ITS SPIN AXIS, and FALLS OVER. The world is viewed in the Bible as man views it - UPRIGHT IS "NORTH" and to FALL means SOUTH. The word "dissolved" means TO BREAK UP, TO VIOLATE. We will look at other verses that support A LITERAL SHIFTING OF THE POLES LATER.
Was there a previous Polar Shift recorded in the Bible? There are three possible areas for a previous POLAR SHIFT:
1. JUST BEFORE THE CREATION STORY OF GENESIS.
2. THE GREAT FLOOD IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
3. THE GREAT DIVIDING OF THE LAND IN THE DAYS OF PELEG.
Letís look at the FLOOD ACCOUNT, for possible evidence of a major catastrophic earth change:
Genesis 7:11-12
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. [12] And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
Now what are these FOUNTAINS OF THE DEEP? Fountains would appear to be huge springs of water under the seas, for the word DEEP usually refers either to THE PIT, or the ocean bottom. So then it would appear that SOMETHING TRIGGERED A MASSIVE BREAKING UP OF THE OCEAN BOTTOM, or, that there was a HUGE UNDERGROUND SEA, that suddenly came to the surface, along the plate edge zones, such as could happen in a MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE. But what could cause it? We have several areas of speculation: The passing of a planetary visitor, such as a comet or massive asteroid, or as some have suggested, the planet MARS, or one of its moons. It has been suggested that Mars and Earth had a different orbit in the ancient past, something suggested even by Scripture, for earth years were 360 days, not our 365.4 days in length. The orbits were oblong to a a minor degree, and Mars and Earth passed close by one another from time to time. If this theory is correct, then there would be periodic mega changes upon earth each time there was a close encounter. Ancient writings tend to support this concept. There is also speculation about another planet, called by some a "dark star", that comes to closeEven a POLAR SHIFT brought about by more normal changes in the earth itself would produce major breakups in the tectonic plates and cause gigantic earth changes. It would not have to be a LARGE SHIFT, even a minor one would cause major breakup of the earthís crust, causing the release of millions of tons of water held beneath the crust at the point in earth's history. This BREAKING UP OF THE FOUNTAINS OF THE DEEP OCCURS FIRST, AND THEN COME THE MASSIVE RAINS.
Now what is interesting here is that RAINDROPS CANNOT FORM WITHOUT "PARTICULATE", which is a fancy word for DUST PARTICLES IN THE AIR. Remember that prior to the FLOOD, it NEVER RAINED, it only MISTED:
Genesis 2:6
But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
The atmosphere of the earth would have held trillions of gallons of water vapor in the air, but there were no clouds, for there was no way for the water droplets to form, the air was perfectly clear, it never rained. Suddenly, however, and with NO WARNING, things change. The FOUNTAINS OF THE DEEP OPEN UP, which would also include MASSIVE VOLCANIC ACTIVITY. Suddenly there is dust in the atmosphere, and the water drops start to form, and once the process has begun, nothing can stop it - the heavens OPEN UP, and it rains NON-STOP FOR FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS. Was a POLAR SHIFT INVOLVED AS WELL? We do not know, but he Book of Jasher gives us several clues that might confirm there was:
"And on that day (THE DAY OF THE FLOOD), the Lord caused the
WHOLE EARTH TO SHAKE,
and the SUN DARKENED, and
THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE WORLD RAGED,
AND THE WHOLE EARTH WAS MOVED VIOLENTLY,
and the LIGHTNING FLASHED, and the THUNDER ROARED, and
ALL THE FOUNTAINS IN THE EARTH
WERE BROKEN UP, such as
WAS NOT KNOWN TO THE INHABITANTS BEFORE,
and GOD DID THIS MIGHTY ACT, IN ORDER TO TERRIFY THE SONS OF MEN, THAT THERE MIGHT BE NO MORE EVIL UPON THE EARTH."
Jasher 6:11
According to the Book of Jasher, an ancient document which gives us some insight into the teachings of men back then, THE WHOLE EARTH SHOOK AND WAS VIOLENTLY MOVED. We also have a DARKENED SKY, which came suddenly, as though violent volcanic activity suddenly occurred, and then HUGE LIGHTING BOLTS WENT THROUGH THE SKY. This description can be found in other ancient manuscripts. But what caused this VIOLENCE? God Himself! What natural vehicle did He use, or did He directly intervene? Apart from Divine intervention, the only other cause is a POLAR SHIFT.
The Book of Enoch also gives us some clues to this:
"In those days, Noah SAW THAT EARTH BECAME INCLINED, and that DESTRUCTION APPROACHED.
Then he lifted up his feet, and went to the ends of the earth, to the dwelling place of his great grandfather, Enoch.
And Noah cried with a bitter voice" HEAR ME; HEAR ME; HEAR ME: three times. And he said: TELL ME WHAT IS TRANSACTING UPON EARTH, FOR THE EARTH LABORS, AND IS VIOLENTLY SHAKEN. SURELY I SHALL PERISH WITH IT.
AFTER THIS THERE WAS A GREAT PERTURBATION UPON EARTH..."
The interesting comment here is that NOAH SAW THE EARTH BECAME INCLINED. There was an observable tilt in its axis, and it caused great great earthquakes, which upset Noah to the point that he ran to see his great-grandfather about it. Obviously, the men of old in those days were watching and understood the basics of earth's position in space and how it operated in the heavens. Enoch did, for God showed him everything about it.
The FLOOD AND POLAR SHIFT SETS THE STAGE FOR THE NEXT MAJOR EVENT:
Was there a polar shift in the days of Peleg (Genesis 10:25)? It says that in the days of Peleg THE EARTH WAS DIVIDED!
1 Chron. 1:19
And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg; because in his days
the earth was divided:
and his brother's name was Joktan.
The word divided means to SPLIT APART, TO BREAK UP, TO BE BROKEN. It comes from the word PALAG, which means TO SPLIT, TO DIVIDE. It is interesting to note that the name PELEG MEANS "EARTHQUAKE". The entire sequence of words and their root imply a MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE, ONE SO GREAT THAT IT LITERALLY TORE APART THE PLANET INTO WHAT WE KNOW AS CONTINENTS TODAY. Prior to this event, the world was ONE LAND MASS. There is Scriptural evidence to suggest that the world will return to that form in the next major upheaval cycle, just ahead. We know that because the Bible claims that all modern technology will be destroyed, and that means back to basics. Yet it says that ALL NATIONS OF THE WORLD THAT SURVIVE, and are not THROWN INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE (LAVA), will come to Jerusalem to worship. How do they get there? It also claims that America sinks into the ocean, much like ATLANTIS, but rises again to become a desert land, a land that is hissed at by all survivors.
In the Book of Jasher, which admittedly cannot be placed on a Scriptural level, but can show us the thinking of man back in those days, we find the following:
"...the name of one (Son) was PELEG, for IN HIS DAYS
THE SONS OF MEN WERE DIVIDED
(TOWER OF BABEL DIVISION)
and in the LATTER DAYS (OF HIS LIFE)
THE EARTH WAS DIVIDED
(THE EARTH ITSELF WAS SPLIT APART)
Jasher 7:19
The entire land mass of earth was ONE UNIT prior to and just shortly after the flood. Then, if you will recall the Babel story, God came down and confused the tongues of mankind, so that they could not understand each other. By forming the different tongues, God set in motion the splitting apart or DIVIDING OF MANKIND into its various TRIBES, NATIONS, KINDREDS AND TONGUES. Each group, because it could not understand the others, formed and migrated away from Babel into the vast land areas of the earth. God came down in the first place as an answer to NIMRODíS REBELLION TO SET UP A ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT AT BABYLON, and from thence to TAKE THE EARTH FOR HIMSELF.
With mankind now scattered upon the earth, it was time for God to LITERALLY SPLIT APART THE EARTH, to ISOLATE THE TRIBES FROM EACH OTHER. THE SECOND PHASE OF THE DIVISION OF MAN CAME, THE DIVISION OF THE LAND MASSES. It was done via a literal MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE OR POLAR SHIFT, which caused all the nations to form as we know them today. Now mankind was not only split by tongues, but also by LAND MASSES with large oceans between them.
It would now take mankind thousands of years to RE-ESTABLISH THE SECOND TOWER OF BABEL (THE UNITED NATIONS) BY A GREAT RIVER (THIS TIME THE HUDSON), IN A LARGE CITY (NEW YORK CITY), IN AN ATTEMPT TO FORGE ANOTHER ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT, AND UNITE MANKIND INTO ONE UNIT, and it would occur JUST PRIOR TO THE TERMINATION OF MANKINDíS PROBATION UPON PLANET EARTH. In point of fact, the formation of the United Nations, and its attempts to forge a ONE-WORLD GOVERNMENT, JUST AS NIMROD DID, IS A KEY SIGN OF THE END.
It is from this division of the lands that we get our modern topography, and if you will look at your maps, you will see how the nations actually did fit together at one time in the distant past. We will now return to Isaiah 24, for it is the primary foundational support for a coming Polar Shift:
"THE EARTH
SHALL REEL TO AND FRO
LIKE A DRUNKARD,
AND SHALL BE REMOVED LIKE A COTTAGE;
AND THE TRANSGRESSION THERE-OF SHALL BE HEAVY UPON IT;
AND IT SHALL FALL
AND NOT RISE AGAIN."
(Isaiah 24:20)
This is a literal statement of fact. The earth will be removed OUT OF HER PLACE. The place of the earth is twofold:
1. HER ORBIT AROUND THE SUN.
2. HER POLAR SPIN AXIS.
According to all of the Bible prophecies, and those of the Hopi Indians, the New Age and others, the EARTH WILL UNDERGO A RADICAL SHIFT IN HER POLAR AXIS! The Bible also says SHE WILL BE REMOVED TOTALLY OUT OF HER PRESENT ORBIT around the Sun. Something triggers this event. What is it?
First let's check out the words used, to be sure we are taking the most literal approach as intended by the Lord. The word "reel" means TO WAVER UP AND DOWN OR SIDEWAYS, as a drunk that weaves and wanders, falling and reeling. The word "removed", means TO NOD, TO SHAKE OR TOSS THE HEAD, MAKE TO MOVE, TO SHAKE. The word "fall" means to BE CAST DOWN, TO OVERTHROW or to FALL DOWN. Again, the proper PLACE of the earth is at this time about a 23 degree inclination of the poles. To be REELING means for the earth to BE TOSSED, TO TURN UPSIDE DOWN, TO REEL BACK AND FOURTH AS IT GAINS A NEW EQUILIBRIUM IN A NEW AXIS, AND QUITE POSSIBLY, A NEW ORBIT. Thus the entire earth "falls" over, if viewed from outer space.
Isaiah 24:4-6
The earth mourneth and fadeth away,
the world languisheth and fadeth away,
the haughty people of the earth do languish. [5] The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. [6] Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate:
therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned,
and few men left.

This event is so destructive, and so universal, that God claims FEW MEN ARE LEFT ALIVE, AND THAT MEANS VERY FEW. Thus we can prove this is a UNIVERSAL EVENT, all over the globe mankind is "scattered" and destroyed. It is the end of all civilization as we know it. Here are other Scriptures that confirm this is a literal polar shift:
Psalm 46:1-3
To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. [2] Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; [3] Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

Again we find this strange remark that the EARTH IS TO BE REMOVED. This so called "removal" is so massive that it carries the MOUNTAINS INTO THE MIDST OF THE SEAS!! What type of earthquake is so mammoth that it takes MOUNTAIN RANGES, THAT ARE IN THE MIDST OF THE NATIONS (CONTINENTS) and THEY SINK BELOW THE WAVES OF THE SEA? The word "remove" in this case means "TO ALTER, TO CHANGE, TO DISPENSE WITH THE PRESENT ONE AND EXCHANGE IT FOR ANOTHER." This sound like a NEW EARTH AND NEW HEAVEN. A total rearrangement of the earth's surface, to alter its appearance totally, to destroy what is here today and to rearrange it. A Literal POLAR SHIFT would do exactly that, and it would cause massive flooding as well, as God uses salt water as a cleansing agent for radio activity. Let's look further:
Isaiah 54:10
For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

The words "shall depart" come from a word that means TO RECEDE, TO WITHDRAW, TO GO BACK, OR TO REMOVE, TO BE TAKEN AWAY. The word 'remove" means TO WAVER, TO SHAKE, TO FALL OR TO BE CARRIED AWAY. In other words, THE MOUNTAINS AND THE HILLS WILL "GO BACK" FROM WHENCE THEY CAME - A REVERSAL, SO TO SPEAK. THUS NATIONS THAT CAME UP FROM THE SEA WILL GO BACK, AND THOSE THAT SUNK IN THE SEA SHALL ARISE. A total RESTRUCTURING OF THE PLANET, a total FACELIFT, a changing of her "face". Again, a literal polar shift would accomplish exactly that.
Habakkuk 3:6
He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting.

Rev. 16:18-20
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. [19] And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. [20] And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

Now it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that this MIGHTY EARTHQUAKE, bigger than ANYTHING SINCE THERE WAS A NATION, one that DESTROYS ALL THE MOUNTAINS, AND EVERY ISLAND on earth is a GREAT SHIFTING OF THE EARTH. It goes hand and hand with Isaiah 24 and the LORD TURNING THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN. Only a POLAR SHIFT of GREAT MAGNITUDE could cause such a massive upheaval, complete with massive TSUNAMIS that destroy the nations of the earth. While the occult may issue warnings of a POLAR SHIFT and claim there are SAFE ZONES, the Bible has a far different story, a story that all but obliterates mankind from off the face of the earth - except for the elect of God and a very few survivors.
Isaiah 2:17-21
And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. [18] And the idols he shall utterly abolish. [19] And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. [20] In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; [21] To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

Here we have another statement from the Lord, actually MADE TWICE (which is a real warning), that HE IS GOING TO SHAKE THE EARTH WITH UTTER VIOLENCE, and this terrible shaking will destroy civilization as we know it totally! The words translated "shake terribly" means AWE, DREAD, TO SHAKE TERRIBLY. It will fill men with total awe and total dread, which is why Jesus Christ said that MEN'S HEART WOULD FAIL THEM FOR FEAR OVER WHAT WAS COMING UPON THE EARTH. There is no escape from this, except via the Lord Jesus Christ. He is our only refuge.
Haggai 2:6-7
For thus saith the LORD of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; [7] And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

Job 9:2-10
I know it is so of a truth: but how should man be just with God? [3] If he will contend with him, he cannot answer him one of a thousand. [4] He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered? [5] Which removeth the mountains, and they know not: which overturneth them in his anger. [6] Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble. [7] Which commandeth the sun, and it riseth not; and sealeth up the stars. [8] Which alone spreadeth out the heavens, and treadeth upon the waves of the sea. [9] Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south. [10] Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

The earth is again stated to be removed OUT OF HER PLACE, and that the MOUNTAINS ARE REMOVED. Then it makes mentions that her PILLARS TREMBLE. What are these "pillars" of the earth? Could it be that the pillars are in fact THE CENTER OF HER SPIN AXIS? Sort of like a GYROSCOPE, that has its own "pillars' about which is rotates? That the pillars are the poles that she revolves around? And if so, that they shake and tremble, and then finally topple as the earth is turned UPSIDE DOWN?
In order to understand this from a different perspective, the occult has maintained that the earth periodically RE-ORIENTATES ITSELF IN ITS AXIS SPIN. There are many writers of the occult from long past that have said this, and many more writers today. There is vast scientific evidence to prove that the MAGNETIC POLES OF THE EARTH SHIFT. In point of fact, there is now modern evidence of such a shift taking place before our eyes - AIRPORT RUNWAYS. All runways are numbered according to their magnetic heading, through 360 degrees. Thus runway 18 simply means that your heading is due south, 180 degrees FROM MAGNETIC NORTH. For example, Minneapolis International runways 29 left and 29 right, which I personally landed on and took off from thousands of times as a professional pilot, have now had to be renamed: 30 right and 30 left, for the magnetic poles are shifting, about 10 degrees in this case. The poles do wander. Others runways are having the same problem. As we near the shift itself, the entire system should become unusable. This magnetic pole shifting may well precede the real shift, or might even be its trigger. Bible scholars have always "spiritualized" away these radical statements in the Scripture about polar shifts, but what if it is real? WHAT IF IT MEANS WHAT IT SAYS; AND IT SAYS WHAT IT MEANS?
Prior to this event, changes begin to occur that signal the approach of a polar shift. Animal migratory habits will shift, because the magnetic fields within the earth begin to shift, even if slightly, because birds, for example, have some form of built in compass that uses the magnetic poles to navigate by. A polar wobble of minute amounts begins to appear, and the climates begin to shift. Weather records will begin to appear on a daily basis, with record cold waves, heat waves, droughts, and huge storms beginning to appear and to create havoc upon earth. At the same time these things begin, earthquakes of greater magnitude will begin to show here and there, and they begin to get DEEPER than normal, AS THE TECTONIC PLATES BEGIN TO SLOWLY BREAK UP. Volcanic activity will begin to accelerate with old dormant volcanoes coming to life, as well as new ones forming all over the earth. Many will be under the sea, and these will begin to multiply in numbers, warming the oceans in certain areas, changing the climate of the earth is a major way. El Nino could well be caused by undersea volcanic activity. These changes take place over a long period of time, and they are not noticed until the VERY END, WHEN THEY BEGIN TO MULTIPLY IN EARNEST - AND WE COULD BE ENTERING THAT FINAL PHASE RIGHT NOW. Jesus Christ referred to these as BIRTH PANGS, for the world is entering a NEW PHASE, and a time of TRIBULATION IS NOW UPON US.
This will bring with it massive flooding in some sections, such as we have witnessed in America, and drought in other sections. All weather patterns shift and begin to INTENSIFY IN THEIR MAGNITUDE. The food belts begin to have difficulty producing, many farmers go bankrupt, and the world's food supplies begin to dwindle. The governments know something is afoot, but they do not know what, and they have secret meetings in an attempt to get at the bottom of it - to no avail - for they are the target of God's wrath - because of the treatment they have given to God's people. It is interesting to note that as the NATIONS AND PEOPLE OF THE WORLD TURN AGAINST CHRISTIANS AND JEWS THAT THE TROUBLE BEGINS, and as they persecute them more and more, finally rounding them up and killing many of them, that GOD'S WRATH IS MOVED INTO ACTION, and He destroys all the nations and the people of the world, and those whom the nations hated, reviled and persecuted, end up taking over the NEW EARTH!! Such is the result of mocking God and His Word.
Thus, tornadoes will be severe and widespread, causing massive damage and loss of life. Hurricanes will become stronger and stronger, bringing with them more and more damage to the effected areas. Thunderstorms will increase in their size and intensity, bringing with them localized flooding, wind storms, and severe hail damage.
Earthquake activity increases slowly as the shift gets closer, but science will not detect what is actually happening, because this is THE WORK OF THE SPIRIT WORKING BEHIND THE PHYSICAL. Scientists will seek answers as the world moves closer to real shift itself. Thus we should see increasingly severe earthquake activity all over the world. Along with earthquake activity comes volcanic activity; because the two are connected together.
When you combine all of these natural judgments together, they spell increasing trouble for man. When God judges a nation, He usually begins that judgment by natural means, such as changing the climate, which in turn effects food production, and then the whole civilization itself. It takes time, and is a slow ERODING PROCESS. DROUGHT and FLOODING are two of the major items in God's storehouse of punishment for a nation gone astray. He will usually strike in the FOOD BELT AREAS FIRST, because food is an absolute requirement of any nation. He works slowly but surely, calling a nation to repentance. If they refuse to heed the call, which they almost always do, He will then destroy the targeted nation's ability to feed itself. Famine follows.
Natural man, alive only to his five senses, and not recognizing THE SPIRIT OF GOD AT WORK, usually continues to harden his heart. To the world, these are just "natural events" and part of "natural cycles". Mother earth is merely responding to the abuse of man. The sinning against God grows worse, as the judgments become worse. UTTERLY BLIND to his only way out, which is Biblical repentance, this process continues until the nation is DEVASTATED AND UTTERLY DESTROYED.
As the judgments intensify, the nation slowly slides into oblivion, unable to extricate itself no matter what it does. If God works on nations, He can do the same thing to the WORLD, HIS FOOTSTOOL. The polar shift is one of His weapons of indignation. The world, and the world leaders, align themselves AGAINST GOD, and AGAINST CHRIST:
Psalm 2:1-12
Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? [2] The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, [3] Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. [4] He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. [5] Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. [6] Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. [7] I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. [8] Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. [9] Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. [10] Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. [11] Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. [12] Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

There is a sequence here worth noting, even if you are an unbeliever:
1. The KINGS AND THE RULERS SET THEMSELVES AGAINST GOD AND CHRIST, and therefore obviously HIS FOLLOWERS.
2. THEY ATTEMPT, THROUGH THEIR "NEW WORLD ORDER" and via 'MYSTERY" to bring in a NEW RELIGION, WITH A NEW "MESSIAH" CALLED "ANTICHRIST, that poses as the REAL CHRIST.
3. THEY OPENLY BEGIN TO OPPRESS GOD'S CHOSEN PEOPLE, ROUNDING THEM UP, PLACING THEM IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS, KILLING MANY OF THEM, AND BLAMING THEM FOR THE "WOES" OF THE EARTH.
4. GOD HOLDS THEM IN CONTEMPT, AND WAITS BUT A VERY SHORT TIME BEFORE HE VEXES THEM IN HIS WRATH. The wrath of God is directly tied to the TRIGGER EVENT FOR THE POLAR SHIFT.
The world and all of its nations and people are DESTROYED FOR ONE PRIMARY REASON: THEY HATED GOD, THEY HATED CHRIST, THEY HATED HIS PEOPLE, THEY HATED HIS GOODNESS AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, and they would not have any of it. So God simply DESTROYS THEM ALL. Could it all have been avoided? Yes, but not in the way that the occult claims it could. Their claim is THAT ALL OF THIS CAN BE PREVENTED, IF MAN WILL REPENT OF HIS "BEHAVIOR" ONE TOWARDS ANOTHER, and that we must AT ALL COST, set up a NEW WORLD ORDER OF PEACE, LOVE, BROTHERHOOD, and all that refuse it are HATERS OF GOD, PEACE, LOVE AND BROTHERHOOD. There is a certain element of truth in that, but in a greater sense, it is in reality, a COMPLETE REVERSAL OF THE ACTUAL TRUTH, so that as the world DESTROYS THOSE THEY THINK ARE THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM, THEY THEMSELVES ARE THE REAL PROBLEM, not knowing the truth of the Bible, regeneration, or NEW BIRTH, and accept a LIE for the TRUTH. Thus they destroy GOD'S PEOPLE THINKING THEY DO GOD A FAVOR.
As God is behind the SHIFT, it is a JUDGMENT, and in that judgment, certain nations will be selected out for SEVERE CHASTISEMENT. America is one of those nations, for America has utterly rebelled against God and Christ. America is marked for utter and complete destruction. Nothing can now later the course America is on. Her people have rejected the truth and embraced the lie. As America turns more and more against God and Christ, while quoting the Bible more and more, severe changes will be returned by the Lord. A book was recently published, in which a man tracked ANTIGOD REMARKS, LAWS AND ACTIONS on the part of Federal and State governments, and NATURAL EVENTS. Within days after these antichrist, antigod actions, God responded with a "natural disaster", usually targeting the VERY STATE the action was taken in. But man refuses to listen. He hardens HIS HEART, and grows more and more evil, blaming God rather than himself.
There will be a marked increase IN SEVERE EARTHQUAKE AND VOLCANIC ACTIVITY in the United States as the shift approaches. The major hotspots to watch in the United States are CALIFORNIA, UTAH, NEVADA, WASHINGTON, OREGON, MONTANA, IDAHO, THE NEW MADRID FAULT LINE (MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY), THE NEW YORK CITY FAULT LINES, THE ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY AREA, UPPER NEW YORK AND SOUTHERN CANADA IN THE SAME AREA. Then we have the HOT SPRINGS AREAS ON THE EAST COAST, AND THE GREAT LAKES, which have evidence of severe volcanic activity in the distant past. Jesus Himself referred to this:
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be FAMINES, AND PESTILENCES,
AND EARTHQUAKES, IN DIVERS PLACES"
(Matthew 24:7)
The Bible implies an INCREASE IN EARTHQUAKES OF GREATER MAGNITUDE as we approach the end. But Jesus did not say that here, He only said there WOULD BE MAJOR EARTHQUAKES IN VARIOUS PLACES ALL OVER THE WORLD. These lead, however, to EARTHQUAKES OF SUCH A MAGNITUDE that it leaves the RICHTER SCALE IN THE DUST. We can prove that earthquake activity is increasing the world over, with a small percentage each year in the 5-6 range. There has been a REDUCTION in earthquakes in the 7 and higher range, but that will change as we get into the MEGA CHANGES JUST AHEAD. THIS ACTIVITY OF LARGER AND LARGER EARTHQUAKES WILL INCREASE RAPIDLY AS THE POLAR SHIFT APPROACHES. These actions are slow to begin, and accelerate as the day approaches. In short, the earth enters a period in which INSTABILITY BEGINS TO APPEAR. The Bible is full of EARTHQUAKE AND VOLCANIC ACTIVITY prophecy, much of it brought about by the Lord Himself:
Rev. 6:12
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake;
and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair,
and the moon became as blood;
THIS IS NOT JUST AN EARTHQUAKE, FOR AN EARTHQUAKE DOES NOT CAUSE HUGE AMOUNTS OF DUST TO GO INTO THE ATMOSPHERE TO BLOCK OUT THE LIGHT FROM THE MOON AND SUN. VOLCANIC ACTIVITY DOES. THIS IS A REFERENCE TO BOTH EARTHQUAKE AND VOLCANIC ACTIVITY.
Rev. 8:5
And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Rev. 11:13
And the same hour was there
a great earthquake,
and the tenth part of the city fell,
and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
Rev. 11:19
And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
WE FIND OVER AND OVER AGAIN MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE ACTIVITY, AND WHAT ALSO APPEARS TO BE GREAT VOLCANIC ACTIVITY AS WELL.
Rev. 16:18
And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake,
such as was not since men were upon the earth,
so mighty an earthquake,
and so great.
This final earthquake is greater than ANY EARTHQUAKE EVER SINCE ADAM AND EVE, which means it will be far greater than the EARTHQUAKE OF PELEGíS DAY, THE ONE THAT SPLIT THE EARTH ASUNDER or, for that matter, THE GREAT FLOOD OF NOAH'S DAY. Can you imagine the forces that were set loose during the days of Peleg, or what it would have been like to live through such an event? What would modern man think of such a quake? What do you suppose CBS, NBC, CNN and the other major networks would have to say about it? A major quake in the 12-20 (totally off the scale) range would demand full coverage, 24 hours a day! Look for it, it is coming, not because we say so, but because the Bible says so.
Science, so called, will look for answers to these changes. They will bring forward all sorts of concepts to explain what is happening, as they are doing for todayís changes, blaming it on El Nino, but that will soon fall short as these changes begin to multiply in both frequency and intensity. It will seem that nature has lost control, and that the so called "natural laws" are no longer in effect. Mankind will have entered into UNCHARTED TERRITORY, AND BECAUSE THEY REJECTED THE SCRIPTURE, WILL NOT KNOW OR UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENING OR WHY. In PART TWO, we will discuss further Scripture to prove there is a POLAR SHIFT ON THE WAY, AND IT IS NOT FAR OFF
