THE THIRD TRUMPET:
Could We Be Further Into The Tribulation
Than Any Of Us Imagined?

By Helena Lehman of the
Pillar of Enoch Ministry (POEM)
http://pillar-of-enoch.com

IMPORTANT 9-11-2013 UPDATE NOTICE: So far, there have been no reports coming out of Russia of people dying from any mysterious illnesses, as far as I know. So it appears that the Chelyabinsk Meteor Strike was another sign resembling the blazing Wormwood Star to come. 

However, this article still has some importance as it shows that many of the Judgments of the Great Tribulation may have already begun to be fulfilled, which in turn suggests that we are already in the Tribulation period, and the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is a false doctrine. It also has links so some of my most important End Time articles showing just how far into the Tribulation we may already be. 

Despite the fact that we are likely well into the seven-year Tribulation period, I believe that there will be a Rapture for the Wise Virgins, and it is tied to the middle of the Tribulation period, but BEFORE the Great Tribulation begins at the Sixth Seal Judgment. I also believe that there may be another Rapture before the Great Tribulation is over that will be for the now wizened Foolish Virgins. Links to my most important articles reflecting my current theories on the Rapture and the End Times appear at the end of this article.

Above is a high resolution photo of the dramatic burst of blinding light that occurred during the Chelyabinsk Meteor Strike on February 14th-15th, 2013, in Russia. For a Bible believer like me who studies Prophecy, this Meteor Strike was not only an incredibly startling event, but a terribly ominous Sign from Yahweh God that Great Judgment is coming - and has already come - upon the Earth. The subject of this article is therefore just how late the Tribulation hour may be, and just how “great” the coming judgment might be. 

Before I continue, you should know that I think that most Prophecy teachers are wrong in teaching a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, which is just what I was doing before I woke up and noticed all the conflicting earthly and heavenly evidence. Furthermore, I think this evidence proves that we are already in the final seven year Tribulation period that is tied to the Prophet Daniel’s Seventieth Week. In fact, this article is about to show you just how late into the Tribulation we may actually be.

To do that, let’s look at some maps marking the approximate detonation point of the Chelyabinsk Meteor Strike over the Ural Mountains. The first one was taken from the NASA Article linked to below. The second one was taken from another web site discussing the meteor strike:

Note that this meteor exploded over the Ural Mountains, which feed a large network of rivers and streams in Russia. For those who are familiar with the Book of Revelation, this ought to ring a bell. If not, I will shortly point out why it should. But first, let me present you with a link to the NASA article with the first map so you can read the whole article:

NASA Article About The Chelyabinsk Meteor Strike:

Concerning the size and power of the Meteor blast, this article states:
       “New information provided by a worldwide network of sensors has allowed scientists to refine their estimates for the size of the object that entered that atmosphere and disintegrated in the skies over Chelyabinsk, Russia, at 7:20:26 p.m. PST, or 10:20:26 p.m. EST on Feb. 14 (3:20:26 UTC on Feb. 15).
       The estimated size of the object, prior to entering Earth's atmosphere, has been revised upward from 49 feet (15 meters) to 55 feet (17 meters), and its estimated mass has increased from 7,000 to 10,000 tons. Also, the estimate for energy released during the event has increased by 30 kilotons to nearly 500 kilotons of energy released.”
So this 10,000 Ton Meteor entered Earth’s atmosphere and released an estimated 500 Kilotons of energy when it exploded directly over this land area inundated with rivers! Furthermore, there is no doubt that this meteor was blazing like a star when it entered Earth’s atmosphere. In fact, there are reports that the Meteor Blast was 10 times, and even 20 times brighter than the light of our Sun! So, this leads me to ask this question:
“Could this Meteor Strike be the Great Star that falls from Heaven burning like a torch that is called Wormwood, and which is associated with the Third Trumpet Judgment?”
If so, it will eventually pollute a third of the rivers in Russia in some way - probably when the snow covering the ground there melts off this spring. Furthermore, if this is the Third Trumpet Judgment, many people will begin to die after they drink the resulting polluted tap water:
~*~ Revelation 8:10-11 ~*~  Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck - “Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.”
Ominously, the Chelyabinsk Meteor seems to have been part of a larger phenomenon, as there were Meteor Sightings in Florida and San Francisco shortly after the meteor strike in Russia. I don’t know about you, but I have a feeling that all of these meteor sightings that were seen this February 2013 were a warning from God for the Church to wake up, and I think believers really need to examine all of the misinformation that they may have inadvertently been fed by the majority of Prophecy Teachers. Too many of them appear to be blind to the lateness of the Tribulation Hour, and many of them may have been just as hoodwinked as the majority of the rest of us , though I hope this article will serve to wake up more than one believer to the lateness of the End Times we are in, and to the nearness of Yahshuas soon return in the Rapture.

In my case, I woke up to the fact that the Pre-Tribulation Rapture theory that I had adhered to for so many years didn’t make sense in 2010, when I began to see numerous heavenly and earthly signs that we were already in the Tribulation period. I was also alerted that there might be a problem with the most popular Rapture theory when the highly anticipated Rapture or Catching Away of the Church didn’t occur on the Feast of Trumpets on September 9th and 10th in 2010. But I wasn’t completely sure until 2011, when the rate of earthquakes and natural disasters all over the world stepped up dramatically.

At this point all I can say is, “I hope I’m wrong.” But the facts surrounding this Meteor Strike over Russia seem to fit the description of the Third Trumpet Judgment. I guess we’ll know for certain if news starts leaking out of that part of Russia soon with reports of mass deaths being caused by some horrid toxin - especially if they finally link it to the drinking water supply. (9-13-2013; As already noted this hasn’t happened. But Chelyabinsk was still a clear warning of the Wormwood Star event to come.)

Whatever proves to be the case, I can tell you where we have already seen at least a partial fulfillment of the Sixth Seal Judgment - when the mountains and islands are to be moved out of their places in the midst of a great earthquake that will be felt around the world:
~*~ Revelation 6:11-17 ~*~  Sixth Seal: “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.  13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.  14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.  15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16 and said to the mountains and 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 His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?’” 
I believe that this Pole Shift already may have started as a result of the massive 8.8 Earthquake in Concepción, Chile on February 27th, 2010. This mega-earthquake not only moved the city of Concepción ten feet to the west, but also moved many other regions of South America out of their places. In addition, it may have moved the Earth’s axis by far more than the reported millionths of a degree, and this may be why the world’s climate patterns seem to have drastically changed since then. What made us miss it is the lack of honest reports about the amount of the pole shift, as well as the lack of reports about the widespread fear and terror this event likely caused in all of South America. For all we know, many members of the elite may have been frightened enough by the Chile quake to seek shelter in their underground bunkers for a few days - just in case that earthquake was followed by another, even bigger one.

Then there was the 9.0 Earthquake off of Japan on March 11th, 2011 that moved that island nation about 9 feet westward out of its place, drowned tens of thousands of people, destroyed many thousands of homes, businesses, boats, ships and cars, and caused several nuclear reactors to sink into the sea. There are even reports that this earthquake also caused a slight pole shift, adding to the amount of shift cause by the Concepción quake a year earlier. Here is some photographic evidence that many ships and smaller boats were destroyed that day, in addition to the thousands of people, buildings and cars that were lost;

In addition to the loss of so many people, homes, and water and land vehicles, could a third of the sea life around Japan have died from the nuclear waste that those reactors have already leaked into the sea to date? There have been numerous unofficial reports that this is indeed the case. Is it also possible that a third of the boats owned in that part of Japan were also destroyed that day? The photographic evidence suggests that this could have been the case, and that the Japan quake may have at least partially fulfilled the Second Trumpet Judgment. In my opinion, it certainly matches the description of the disaster resulting from the Japan quake - if you view the “something like a great mountain” as the three high towers of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant:
~*~ Revelation 8:8-9 ~*~
Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck - “Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Towers, 
before being damaged in the quake
As for the First Trumpet Judgment, could it be that we’ve failed to notice it because it was deliberately under-reported to not raise the alarm? To clue you into why I am suspicious, let me tell you a little story. One summer in the mid to late 1990’s, when I lived in the Pacific Rain Forest area of Canada for a time, I noticed what happened during a severe drought in the area. Though I don’t remember the year, I do remember that it was one of the hottest and driest summers in that part of British Columbia’s recorded history. During that drought, I was an eye witness to the fact that hundreds of trees had died or were dying from the severity of the drought. I found this out when I went out hiking in one of the areas’ forests on a late summer day. As I hiked down some of the well-trodden hiking paths in the woods that I frequented, I was appalled at the irreparable devastation I saw in pockets here and there. By my estimation, at least a quarter of the trees in the area were dead, or in the process of dying, and many shrubs and grassy areas had already met that sad fate.

Now, considering that there have been numerous reports that last summer was the hottest and driest summer on record in the United States, and that many other parts of the world were hit with record heat waves that killed numerous people in 2012 and the two years prior, don’t you think that many trees and shrubs - and huge swatches of grain crops and grasslands in the wilderness areas all over the world - perished over the last few summers as a result? Furthermore, could it be that global Media outlets underplayed it all, and we just weren’t told sufficiently about the devastation it caused to become alarmed? If so, then the First Trumpet Judgment has also already partly come to pass:
~*~ Revelation 8:7 ~*~ 
First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck - “The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.”
Incidentally, there have been numerous reports of massive wildfires and record-breaking hail storms over the past several years, with cataclysmic, life-threatening storms that produced hail the size of golf balls, baseballs, and even softballs falling profusely in some areas that have caused injuries, as well as much property damage. Could these be another sign that we have already moved into the middle of the Tribulation period, without being truly aware it? If so, when did it start? And if it did, what should we be doing differently, if anything?

First let me address when I think the Tribulation may have started. My guess is that it could have started around the time of the Full Solar Eclipse over Easter Island on July 11th, 2010, or when the Full Lunar Eclipse or Blood Moon occurred over the celestial sword or club being held in the upraised arm of the messianic constellation Orion the Brilliant on December 21st, 2010. Please CLICK HERE to review a recent POEM Blog article that shows the most significant Signs in the Heavens, and what they may mean using my Tribulation Time Chart. 

At the time I noted them, I thought these eclipses could have been the fulfillment of the Solar and Lunar Eclipses that the Prophet Joel mentioned would happen just before the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord (or the Great Tribulation), and I still do (See Joel 2:31). They also may refer to the Full Solar and Full Lunar Eclipse that may have possibly been foretold in the Book of Revelation. There, it is prophesied that the Sun and Moon will be darkened AFTER a massive, pole shifting earthquake:

~*~Revelation 6:12 ~*~
“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.”

Although the Sun and Moon can be darkened by heavy particulates in the atmosphere of our planet from massive fires, volcanic eruptions or massive explosions from Meteor or Asteroid strikes, this can also be caused by eclipses. It is even possible that God was referring to both the darkening of the sky by cataclysms as well as eclipses when He had His prophets write down His words. Incidentally, did you know that the December 21st, 2010 Lunar Eclipse was accompanied by unprecedented amounts of deep seismic Earth tremors for two days before and after? It was as if Yahweh God were shaking the entire planet in an effort to wake them out of their fallen, sin-induced slumber!

One reason why I think these two full eclipses were majorly significant is because the tiny South Pacific island of Rapa Nui, which is known as Easter Island, was discovered on Easter Sunday, April 5th, 1722, and Nissan 1 - the start of the Jewish Sacred Year - fell on April 5th in 2011 - the year following these two eclipses. Incidentally, I think the Moai Statues found all over Easter Island were the product of the Sethites prior to the Flood, or could be the product of Noah’s lesser known descendents, some of whom may have settled in the Americas after the Flood. There is also written and archeological evidence that both the Pre-Flood Sethites, and Noah’s descendents through Shem were familiar with the spiritual science of Sacred Astronomy and the Gospel in the Stars. I discuss this fact in my book “The Language of God in History.”

Another reason why I think these eclipses were significant is the fact the December 21st, 2010 Blood Moon was the first of three Full Blood Moons that occurred 6 months apart, and formed a kind of celestial frame around the year 2011. In fact, another Triple Blood Moon set just like this will occur surrounding the year 2018, and these two Triple Blood Moon occurrences are exactly seven years apart!

If the after affects of the Japan Earthquake didn’t wake us up, maybe we should have clued in that the Earth’s waters were in peril during the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico off the Louisiana coast from April through September of 2010. And maybe it should have become even more apparent with all of the subsequent reports of the many massive fish and bird die-offs, and blood red lakes and rivers that began occurring all over the world in 2011 and 2012.

Can anyone see the causation here? After all, huge amounts of fish have died all over the world, and many kinds of birds that often eat small fish or water-loving insects are also dying, as well as many types of birds and animals that are bitten by the mosquitoes that reproduce in water. There are also many illnesses such as Encephalitis and West Nile Virus that are borne by mosquitoes, fleas and mites that are plaguing humanity and animals right now, and these tiny creatures have been linked to some of the recent mass animal deaths. In fact, birds also eat these disease carrying insects, which may have lead to some of the mass bird deaths that have been reported.

Below is a complete list of all the bird, fish and animal die offs that have occurred since 2009. When looking it over, please note how dramatically these mass deaths increased in 2010, and have stayed high in the intervening years up to the present:

Dying Off from 2009 to 2013:

In summary, the evidence seems to be pointing to the fact that the seven year Tribulation has already begun as of 2010 or 2011. If true, this means that we are swiftly approaching the middle of the tribulation period, when I believe the First Rapture will occur. Immediately after that, I believe the world will see the rise of the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast connected to commerce, and the appearance of the Two Witnesses in Jerusalem after it is annexed as international property by the New World Order so it can be trodden on by the Gentiles for forty-two months (or 3 and a half years - the same length as the ministry of the Two Witnesses and the reign of the Antichrist). 

At that time, I believe that the world will also see the appearance of the 144,000 Witnesses of Revelation Chapter 7 on the world scene. I explain these events in light of  the First and Second Rapture in the second revised article linked to below. It is entitled “Come Up Here, And Come Away!”, and I highly recommend reading it to gain a better understanding of the Rapture, as well as the timing of this momentous event at the onset, and near to the close of the three and a half year Great Tribulation.

Besides that revised article, which is published at my main ministry web site, I’ve posted links and descriptions to several more of my previous POEM Blog Articles that will hopefully give you a better feel for what I believe is happening prophetically right now, what believers need to be doing to prepare for the First Rapture, and when we can expect the First and Second Rapture. If you want to be ready for the First Rapture, please read all of these articles, especially the two that discuss biblical repentance:

Have The Four Horsemen Already Been Released?
Published on 9-11-2011, this article I wrote about the possible meaning of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse in connection to the Sacred Geometry of the Earth and Sacred Astronomy is still relevant today - at least for those who can understand it! If you cannot, but you want to, fervently ask God to open your eyes so you can see, and He will show you! God bless you, and Maranatha!

POEM Article REVISION: Come Up Here and Come Away -
Clues Concerning Two Rapture Events In Scripture:
Article Excerpt: Since the Song of Solomon can be seen as an allegorical story about Christ’s love for His Bride the True Church, it is as if Yahshua were the King asking His Bride to join Him in Heaven, where He currently resides with His Father, not once, but two different times. This passage therefore contains a double allusion to the Rapture or catching up of the Church to Yahshua’s Father’s House in Heaven, where Yahshua said that there are many mansions built to house His saints. In addition, it suggests that there may be two separate Rapture events associated with these two harvest seasons, with one toward the beginning of the three and a half year Great Tribulation, and one near to its end.

First Repentance Article from the Pillar of Enoch Ministry Blog:
Yahshua Is Calling His Church To Repent Before His Return!
Article Excerpt: This one hour sermon is worth listening to more than once! It really drives home the point that our Messiah Yahshua expects His Bride to be faithful to Him in thought, word and deed, and to be worthy of the beautiful white raiment of light that He has prepared for His beloved. Yahshua does not want a wife full of bitterness, hatred and contempt for others, but a willing servant who loves and forgives His brethren, and calls on God to change the hearts of the lost that hurt and spitefully use her, and asks God to have compassion on those who do so in ignorance.

Here is another POEM Blog post calling for repentance and forgiveness that I published on Resurrection Sunday in 2012:

Second Repentance Article:
Pillar of Enoch Ministry Blog: Repent and Prepare for the Rapture!
Article Excerpt: One of the biggest problems that can keep us from being ready for the Rapture is any sort of hatred, bitterness, or lack of forgiveness. None of these negative emotions are acceptable to God in a believer, and these evil sentiments will NOT be tolerated or allowed in Heaven! Pray that the Holy Spirit would fill you with wisdom on how to rid yourself of these faults, and that God would fully prepare you for everlasting life in His Kingdom before the Rapture so that you are NOT LEFT BEHIND!

Article Excerpt: Could the near-miss Asteroid that will pass Earth on February 15th, 2013, Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) that will be visible in March 2013, and Comet ISON (C/2012 S1) that will be very bright and visible from November 2013 through January 2014 be associated with another, far more destructive meteor shower and world war known in the Bible’s Book of Ezekiel as the Battle of Gog and Magog? If so, I equate this war with the war outlined in Psalm 108, in which the USA or Ephraim, and Israel or Judah will be attacked by outside enemies, will counterattack, and will win a decisive victory against their foes after suffering some possibly serious casualties.

UNDERSTANDING THE TWO BEASTS OF REVELATION 13 -
Article Excerpt: As explained in earlier Blog articles, the United States and United Kingdom can be directly connected with the Patriarch Joseph’s sons Ephraim and Manasseh, who are signified by the two horns of the constellation Taurus the Bull. Likewise, the body of the heavenly bull may represent the European Union. In addition, this raging, red-eyed bull that signifies the secret union of the three aforementioned superpowers has an undeniable connection with the Tribulation period, so it is a fair guess that Yahshua the Messiah will crush the global schemes of these nations and groups of nations at His Second Coming!
