Israel’s Mount Carmel is burning: God answers the prayer of Elijah with devastating fires
Since reports of North Korea’s recent rocket test-launch (March 6, 2017) flooded the media, and since this provocative “test” (almost) literally fulfilled one part of the second trumpet Bible text on the exact date we foretold through the Orion clock (as reported here and here), we see it as our duty to again point out the (almost) literal fulfillment of the first trumpet of the Orion clock, whose impact and precision was no less than that of the present trumpet.
By observing the corresponding world events, our latest studies in the Word of God have shown that the biblical trumpets are being fulfilled in two complementary phases. In the first phase, which ran from February 1, 2014 to October 18, 2015, the Bible texts about the trumpets were only “half” fulfilled. Parts of the texts were fulfilled very precisely, wherein one must not forget that Bible prophecy is written in symbolic language—but other parts had not yet fulfilled.
This principle of splitting the fulfillment of Bible prophecy into two phases is nothing unusual. The whole Bible was written that way—just think about the Old Testament and the New Testament, both of which are about Jesus, but viewed from a different perspective in time.
The big question was just... “When would the second phase, a complementary trumpet cycle, begin?” Recently, we were able to answer not only that question, but also one more: “How long would this complementary trumpet cycle last, and when would the plagues begin?”
God helped us in our search for answers. He gave the starting shot for the second and final round in a truly unmistakable way...
Brother John Scotram voiced his Carmel Challenge for the sixth trumpet, July 8, 2015, when we were still in the original trumpet cycle of Orion. However, God did not answer his prayer request in a literal way in that trumpet cycle, but chose a much more appropriate time, “according to His time.”
LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. (From 1 Kings 18:36-37)
On November 22, 2016, John Scotram “celebrated” the 2520-day anniversary (seven prophetic years) of his reading the Orion clock for the first time, which was on December 29, 2009. God had shown him (over the years) how he could do it, but it wasn’t until that day that he was able to put all the pieces of the puzzle together, to read the great clock of time. Shortly afterward, he began to write—in presentation format for the world—the message of God that is contained in the clock.
On the night of the 21st to the 22nd of November, 2016, precisely at the beginning of the Jewish day of his prophetic anniversary, arsonists set Israel on fire. We’re not talking about a few small fires, but all of Israel was in flames, especially the area around Mt. Carmel. This event was not so quiet and obscure that only a few people had heard about it—it became the main topic all over the media. Israel was offered international aid, even by their enemies, the Palestinians. Read a brief chronological overview of the fires in Israel last November on Wikipedia here.
“Every fire caused by arson, or by incitement to arson, is terrorism,” Netanyahu said. “Anyone who tries to burn parts of the State of Israel will be punished severely.”
Approximately 150 single fires had been started, almost 80,000 people had to be evacuated, and international assistance was needed to extinguish the fires. A long drought had been prevailing in the country, which favored the fire, and the arsonists were Muslim. It is reminiscent of the time of Elijah and King Ahab. Even television and YouTube preachers like Paul Begley commented on the topic, immediately connecting it with the biblical prophecies. The media was now speaking about apocalyptic conditions, as we had been for a long time.
Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God. (1 Kings 18:38-39)
Thus, God responded in a literal way to the prayer of the man who, here at the end of days, dwells among us in the spirit and power of Elijah. At the same time, He fulfilled the remainder of the first trumpet, and in so doing signaled the beginning of the second phase of the trumpets of Revelation. As we go through the seven trumpets once again, all the parts of the texts which were not yet or only partly fulfilled in the first phase, will now be fulfilled completely as trumpet blasts. The Orion clock is running backwards in this second phase, just as the Bible’s literary structure (chiasmus) dictates.
The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up. (Revelation 8:7)
In the first trumpet of the first Orion trumpet cycle, we observed volcanic events as the fulfillment of the text’s hail, fire, and blood that was cast upon the earth: the eruption of Mt. Sinabung in Indonesia claimed 16 deaths—and exactly on the first day of the first trumpet according to the Orion clock, which was February 1, 2014.
“All green grass” of the steppes of Crimea had been burnt up shortly afterward through Russia’s annexation of it in the timeframe of that first trumpet of the first phase. It is widely known that the steppes of Crimea are synonymous with an “infinite, undulating sea of grass” which depicts the “abundance of life and pleasure that thrived in every blade of grass and straw.” We have already elaborated on those fulfillments in detail in some of our articles, such as Trumpets with a Certain Sound.
However, we couldn’t find a coherent fulfillment of the part of the text about the “the third part of the trees being burnt up” during the whole first trumpet cycle. For our logic of a second complementary trumpet cycle to be proven correct, a fulfillment needed to take place in this new period, or to initiate the new cycle.
That part was open, at least as far as literal fulfillment was concerned, ...until Israel went up in flames last November! Let’s read about the fires in Israel from a news report that is representative of many others like it:
“This (Israel) is our homeland. These trees are our trees...who would burn their own homeland?”
The devastating forest fires in Israel have ignited the political fires of hatred. The situation is very serious, writes Lily Galili from Tel Aviv.
God is an important Actor in this story. [translated]
Even if there are many who believe in a literal interpretation of the texts in the Book of Revelation, we should not forget that it is a prophetic book, and prophetic books are ALWAYS written in symbolic language. This principle must not be misapplied; the symbolic fulfillment always takes precedence.
In Judges 9:8-15 “the trees” are presented as God’s people Israel who had mixed with all sorts of other peoples in Shechem and lived together there. Thus it is perfectly legitimate to connect the literally burnt trees with the Jewish people, who are also living, mixed, in Jerusalem today. The forest fires that especially “consumed” all of Mt. Carmel actually claimed almost the same number of lives from the Israeli population as did the volcanic eruption of Mt. Sinabung in the first phase.
Still, how does the “third part” apply? In Israel, far more than a third had fires! The “third part” refers to “the fire that was cast upon the earth” from the previous clause. There are three world religions whose members fight over the Temple Mount in Israel: Jews, Christians and Muslims. God wanted to give a clear sign of warning to precisely those three groups, all of whom more or less acknowledge Jesus, by letting His first chosen people feel the punishment prophesied in the Bible, which would later come to all of them. He burned Israel as the third part of those who challenge Him. Meanwhile, the Christians suffer terrible persecution from Islam in vast parts of the world, and that fire is already spreading to Europe and the USA. Fires raged there too, during the first complementary trumpet. We addressed that and much more in our last article, The Seven Lean Years.
God’s revealed schedule is fulfilling right on time...
Thus, each part of the first trumpet text has been completely fulfilled, and we are now already in the core time of the second trumpet. We can already see some parts of it fulfilled in the first and second phases, and we are now just waiting for the “third part of the ships [to be] destroyed,” as already mentioned here. It will come to pass too, punctually according to God’s schedule—partly literally and partly symbolically! Trumpet after trumpet will fulfill until the door of grace for mankind will be fully closed, fulfilling according to the schedule of God, which He has revealed to one of His messengers.
