Introduction

On March 7th, 2009, a Delta II rocket launched from Cape Canaveral carrying the Kepler Space Telescope. It's purpose was to find planets like our own, but it also discovered something far more ominous:

the end of our civilization

That telescope discovered stars like our own that were blasting out flares, thousands of times bigger than the worst solar flair ever seen. If the Carrington Event of 1859 hit us again, it would leave a large part of our civilization in ruins. But, the Kepler Space Telescope recorded superflares far, far worse, even a million times worse. From stars just like our own sun. More importantly, the Bible agrees.

I call what's coming, Ezekiel's Fire. And, that term comes from this verse:

“And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.

- Ezekiel 39:6 (NKJV)

A fire described in the Book of Ezekiel?

Okay, Ezekiel's Fire

I could have called it Isaiah's Sun or Zechariah's Horses, and both Isaiah and Zechariah add important data to what we are talking about. But, this fire that will hit our earth will be truly devastating, and will destroy the modern foundations of our civilization. And, as you already know from my other book, When Gog Comes, Ezekiel is a good place to start, when considering the timing of this solar catastrophe. But, let's get back to that Kepler Space Telescope.

Looking For Planets, Finding Doom

When you want to find a planet, you take multiple readings of the brightness of a star over a long period of time to see if it dims a bit at any moment in time. A loss in brightness indicates that something passed across the face of the star. And, if you measure precisely enough, you can determine the size of the planet and maybe even if it holds an atmosphere. Get detailed enough, and you might even find out what kind of atmosphere the planet has.

The Kepler Space Telescope operated for nine years, gathering a vast trove of data on stars like our own. And, it found planets. Lots of them. And, it was so successful that they launched another satellite to do even more of what Kepler did. Astrophysicists were ecstatic over the thousands of planets that they had found.

Unfortunately, scientists are all too human. They pay attention to what they expect to see and discard what they are not looking for. Since they were only looking for G-class stars that became less-bright, they ignored the data that showed stars becoming brighter. We actually have a term for points of information that do not fit our expectations - extraneous data.

Enter Dr. Kazunari Shibata of Kyoto University in Japan. He looked at the extraneous data and discovered that stars like our own throw out gigantic, civilization-destroying superflares as much as a million times stronger than any flare ever seen - every 800 to 5000 years. If our sun hits Earth with one of those, we're toast. And, Dr. Shibata has been sounding the alarm since 2012.

Very few have been listening.

It Gets Worse - The Micronova

Unfortunately, it gets worse. We have evidence of stars brightening, disappearing and then slowly reappearing. And this is far, far worse than any 'superflare' because that is the signature of a nova event.

To most astronomers, a nova can happen only two ways - a star drawing material off of another object that eventually causes it to explode or a red giant collapsing on itself and exploding. But, the nova event that I'm talking about here does not follow these rules. Our sun isn't a part of a binary star system. There's no 'hot jupiter' in close orbit. No black holes. Nothing. And, in case you haven't noticed, our sun also isn't a red giant. But, since astrophysicists cannot explain how these stars are disappearing and reappearing like this... they ignore them.

Scientists are like most people. If they cannot explain what they are seeing, they dismiss it. This is why it took so long for the word 'superflare' to become an accepted term. And, it will take even longer for 'micronova' - or a term like it - to become common usage for astrophysicists.

What The Bible Says

The problem is that we might not have enough time for astronomers to recognize the existence of small nova events coming from stars like our own. Therefore, it's good that we have the Bible, which describes a situation that is exactly what we would expect from a small nova. Therefore, we don't need to wait for flawed physicists to a acknowledge what they refuse to see.

What is the Bible telling us?

There will be a moment in time, whether through dust accumulation or a strong magnetic anomaly, when our sun will blow off its outermost shell out into the solar system. The result will be a temporary brightness seven times greater than normal, that will also cause our moon to be as bright as the sun. This 'outer shell' will race outwards into our solar system, while cooling - transforming into an expanding shell of dust.

As this expanding shell of dust races past Mercury, Venus and then Earth, stars will be obscured - as if being rolled up as a scroll. It will be like a line of storm clouds moving across the sky, obscuring everything behind it. And, when you look up at the night sky, you'll see the stars wink out as if they were being wiped away.

Our sun will also be dimmed by this cloud of dust, and the dust will shift the light reflected from our moon into red. Also, clumps of dust that hit Earth's atmosphere will flare brightly, like shooting stars.

If any of this sounds familiar, congratulations. You've been reading your Bible, specifically Isaiah 30 and the last part of Revelation 6. Both of those passages lay out a stunningly exact description of what we would expect during a small nova event.

Here are those verses:

...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...

- Revelation 6:12b-14a (NKJV)

Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun,
And the light of the sun will be sevenfold,
As the light of seven days,...

- Isaiah 30:26a (NKJV)

That must be a nova event. There can be no question of what this is, even if you only have a basic understanding of astronomy. And, for those of you who have no understanding of astrophysics, I'm here to help. Lord willing, you'll have all the knowledge that you need, once I'm done talking about this.

The Great Earthquake

But, if you look carefully, you'll notice that I left something out of those two Bible passages. Here they are again, but with the material that I left out in bold:

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. 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.

- Revelation 6:12-14 (NKJV)

25 There will be on every high mountain
And on every high hill
Rivers and streams of waters,
In the day of the great slaughter,
When the towers fall.
26 Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun,
And the light of the sun will be sevenfold,
As the light of seven days,
In the day that the Lord binds up the bruise of His people
And heals the stroke of their wound.

- Isaiah 30:25-26 (NKJV)

This will be the second biggest earthquake in the history of the world. It will sweep the globe, shattering every tall building and causing massive tsunamis bigger than anything ever recorded. Underground streams and aquifers will have their courses - and even locations - changed forever. And, there are a lot more passages in the Bible that say much the same thing about this event. And, the fact that the Bible confirms the scientific evidence is more than a little unsettling.

Electric Earthquakes

Then, we've noticed something interesting about earthquakes. Some scientists have recorded an increase in electromagnetic activity in areas where earthquakes are about to happen. Part of this is due to electric discharge when rock is compressed. But, we've also noticed that when a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from our sun hits the earth we seem to have an uptick in earthquakes. But, there's more.

Remember when I said that this will be the second biggest earthquake ever?

Well the 'first biggest' was several thousand years ago. We call that moment in time, The Great Flood. And, we have evidence that this was also a nova event. Some of that evidence might be on the moon - because of how much glass is up there.

Foolish Scientists

The only real problem that we have in looking at all this evidence is scientists. They don't want to look for it. They don't think that they need to look for it. They think that they understand the sun just fine, thankyouverymuch.

Max Plank once said:

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.

- Max Planck, 1950

Another way of saying that is:

Science advances one funeral at a time.

The scientific community is full of flawed people who doggedly stick to old ideas, even when absolute proof is offered that shows them to be wrong. Only when these arrogant and foolish scientists die, will new ideas advance, that better explain the data that they have received.

Remember Dr. Shibata?

It took more than a decade for some astronomers to reluctantly accept the idea that our sun can eject superflares. And, you can bet that there had to be quite a few funerals before younger scientists grabbed this new bull by the horns and acknowledged what he was saying. But, we aren't going to wait for flawed scientists to eventually recognize the truth. We're going to accept the Bible as our basis for truth.

The End Of Our Civilization

Unfortunately, for those of us who love the comforts of a modern, technologically advanced civilization, the Bible is telling us that our current way of life is doomed. All buildings of any size will be destroyed, killing everyone inside of them. Electricity will cease to exist. Water will no longer flow from our faucets. All transport will cease operating. Permanently. All of that. For a very, very long time.

And, a billion people will die.

If you have read my book When Gog Comes, you already know that this will happen long before the Antichrist and the Great Tribulation. Yes, I know that we were all taught a different story, but theories that were introduced 200 years ago aren't going to save us when this disaster strikes.

If you are at the wrong place, at the wrong time, when the sun lights up the sky and the moon turns the night into day, your chance of survival will be very, very low - especially, if you have not taken steps to prepare spiritually, mentally and physically. That's what this book is about - giving you some of the tools that you need to understand what the Bible is warning about, helping you think through the survival process and the preparations that you need to make.

My goal is for the Body of Christ to survive and thrive during some very, very dark days. Our job as Christians is to reflect the light of Christ into a world that suffers and dies. I know that this time will be terrible, and I'm not looking forward to it. But, I also know that there is nothing worse than someone leaving this life, not knowing Christ.

It would be better to suffer terribly and lose everything - including your life - but go into eternity knowing Jesus as Lord and Savior. No amount of suffering and loss compares to life in Christ, and eternity with Him. And that's why Ezekiel's Fire won't just be a tragedy. It will also be a tremendous opportunity to share the gospel with those who see the truth of God for the first time.

So, let's dig deeper into what Ezekiel's Fire really means.

What Is Ezekiel's Fire?

In this age of prophecy and disaster, our surest guide through these difficult times, is the Bible. The Bible doesn't say everything about what will happen, but it does provide enough information to help us understand the terrible events of today, and the disasters that lie just over the horizon.

So, if you want advance notice of what's coming, please make sure that you are reading your Bible, every day. Of course, you should be reading your Bible for more reasons than just insight into the future. You will not survive what is coming if you do not walk closely with the Lord.

I'm going to assume that you are doing all that. If you aren't... well ...I'm not sure that what I'm going to tell you will do you any good.

What Is Ezekiel's Fire?

So, what is this Ezekiel's Fire?

As I said before, the name "Ezekiel's Fire" comes from this verse:

And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.

Ezekiel 39:6 (KJV)

I puzzled over that verse for years - wondering what that 'fire' was. I only discovered the answer because... you guessed it ...I was reading my Bible every day. And, once I'd gotten over the shock of figuring out the awful implications, I quickly realized that I needed to tell you about what was coming.

Since the subtitle of this website is...

The Solar Event That Destroys Civilization, Straight Out of Prophecy

...you've already figured out that I'm talking about something from our Sun.

Why Is This A Solar Event?

But, why would I say that it's a solar event?

Why not a giant meteor? Or, lots of lightening?

Well, this fire in Ezekiel 39 happens within the context of a certain series of events, and Ezekiel isn't the only prophet to speak of them. Isaiah also talks about some of the same events in chapter 30. But, Isaiah doesn't mention a fire.

He mentions the Sun.

I'm getting a teeny tiny bit ahead of myself, so let me ask you:

What happens to the appearance of the Sun when its outer shell explodes outwards, into the Solar System?

That's right. The Sun would appear to get brighter. A LOT brighter. But, only for a limited period of time.

The Sun Gets Brighter

Well, take a look at what Isaiah says:

Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

Isaiah 30:26 (KJV)

For most of my life, I assumed that this verse meant that the Sun would was just going to miraculously get brighter, and that would be it. But, in the back of my mind, every time that I would read that verse, there was this niggling thought that kept trying catch my attention:

A Sun THAT bright would destroy all life on Earth

I knew that there was just no way that God could do this without some kind of miracle that would keep that much extra light from frying the Earth into a rather nicely rounded bit of charcoal.

Can you imagine Earth with a temperature that is seven times more than it is now?

I can't.

At least, I can't imagine any of us surviving that. So, nothing would survive this event, unless God suspends the rules of nature - or, unless this is a temporary phenomenon.

Of course, God COULD suspend the laws of nature, and He HAS done that in the past. But, you will notice that God rarely does this very often or for any length of time other than short. Even then, God uses the elements of nature to achieve His goals.

So, what was I missing?

What Happens At That Time

Remember that Isaiah doesn't say that the Sun will be this bright, permanently. And, other verses indicate that it is temporary. Furthermore, it points to a DAY when God 'binds up the breach of His people and heals the stroke of their wound'.

So, will this extra brightness last for a DAY?

It's possible, but we also know that the Bible often refers to events occurring in a DAY - when they happen over the course of days and years. These figurative references in the Bible mean that we cannot assume that the time period will be just 24 hours, in which the Sun is seven times brighter.

Although, we DO know that really big solar flares can last for several hours.

So, what is this DAY referring to?

The period of time in which God's people are healed.

Is that us? You and me?

Well, it IS true that the Body of Christ is in desperate need of healing. We have forsaken the way of the Lord and turned our back on His principles. Our churches have fallen in love with an easy gospel and an easy acceptance of every kind of sin. Our assemblies have become dens of iniquity.

Since I've mentioned that, I feel the need to remind you that Isaiah 30 cannot be referring to the Body of Christ:

For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.

- Isaiah 30:19 (KJV)

When God speaks of a physical place like Jerusalem, He's not being 'allegorical'. He really means that ancient city on a rocky hilltop, called Jerusalem.

Furthermore, there are many places in the Bible that speak of this same moment in time. You might be able to twist one or two passages, to try and make them speak about the Body of Christ in the Last Days, but you can't twist all of them. At least...

...not if you are honest.

Israelis In The Land Of Israel Saved

If you are honest, you would have to admit that all of these passages speak specifically of the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that return to a physical land:

  • Isaiah 11-14, 17, 19, 25, 27, 30-35, 40, 49, 51
  • Jeremiah 3, 23, 30-33, 46
  • Ezekiel 11, 16, 20, 28, 34, 36-39
  • Daniel 7-12
  • Hosea
  • Joel
  • Amos 9
  • Obadiah
  • Micah 4, 5, 7
  • Zephaniah 3
  • Zechariah 1-3, 8-10, 12-14
  • Romans 11
  • Hebrews 8
  • Revelation 6-7

If you can read all of that and deny that God is talking about physical Israel in a physical Land of Israel, then... well ...you are far too blind to learn anything from what I have to say. If that's you, stop here.

So, in Isaiah 30, when God heals the PEOPLE of Israel in the LAND of Israel, we are talking about the salvation of the Israeli people. The people of today.

Checking Out Alternative Explanations

But, let's get back to the main topic. Here's the verse from Isaiah again:

Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

- Isaiah 30:26 (KJV)

The only rational explanation for the Sun becoming seven times brighter, is a solar event - either an earth killing solar flare, or a small nova.

Superflare

We have recorded massive superflares coming from stars like our own. They are thousands of times bigger than anything ever recorded in human history, and since they are coming from stars just like our own we have to believe that we will experience one. And, if one of those superflares hit earth... I don't know that very many of us (or any of us) would survive.

A superflare would strip away our atmosphere, scorch one side of the earth and do utterly fantastic damage to the rest of the planet. But, a superflare is a fairly focused stream of energy and plasma. More importantly, a superflare would not brighten the sun by seven times and make the moon as bright as the sun.

What if there was something less focused?

What if the blast of energy from the sun was more spread out and visibly brighter?

A Small Nova

Well, we have something like that, and it's the only other logical conclusion that we have for Isaiah 30:26:

A Small Nova.

Previous editions of this book focused on the likelihood of 'solar flare', but new evidence and a closer look at the description from the Bible has changed my mind. And, the passage that finally convinced me was this one:

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. 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.

Revelation 6:12-14 (NKJV)

If you have been reading When Gog Comes, you know that there is evidence that the Third Seal of Revelation is already open, or will be at some time within a few years. The thought of that fills me with dread. For reasons that would fill an entire book, our civilization has already entered the era of Permanent Decline due to Permanent Scarcity. I do not look forward to going through that.

Furthermore, when Seal Six opens, Revelation indicates that there will be a long pause in the progression of prophetic events. You see this in Revelation 7, when an angel cries out, calling for events to stop until something special happens:

The sealing of 12 thousand Israelis from each of the twelve tribes of Israel.

That would indicate not just the salvation of the descendants of Jacob, but also the spiritual maturation of 144 thousand of them. At a minimum, this indicates a direct connection with Isaiah 30 and Ezekiel 39. And, since the initial description of Seal Six is exactly like a nova event, we have a perfect fit.

Ezekiel's Fire happens when Seal Six is opened.

That's a pretty shocking statement to make, but the evidence just doesn't fit any other way. I went into that in my chapters about the Seven Seals of Revelation and Why Israel Must Be Saved BEFORE The Great Tribulation. I know that we've all been told a different story, but when the Bible disagrees with tradition... tradition loses.

Ezekiel 39 and Isaiah 30 Connected

Remember that the coming of Gog and Magog and the Return of Jacob to God are the core events here. Ezekiel's Fire is just the side effect. The massive alliance created by Gog must invade Israel first, before Ezekiel's Fire happens. And, there's no way that Gog would be able to do that, unless the major military powers of today had been dramatically weakened. And, that 'weakening' is exactly what happens during the first five seals.

Again, what is our core verse?

This one:

And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.

Ezekiel 39:6 (KJV)

That verse is directly connected to this one:

So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.

- Ezekiel 39:22 (KJV)

That means that the Return of Jacob to God - the Salvation of Israel - will only happen at the time of Ezekiel's fire. And, that confirms what Isaiah said about the sun being seven times brighter:

...In the day that the Lord binds up the bruise of His people and heals the stroke of their wound.

- Isaiah 30:26b (NKJV)

That is spiritual salvation, and I call it an absolutely conclusive match. Ezekiel 39:6 and Isaiah 30:26 are both talking about the exact same event. Then, after that, God will give the Israelis enough time to mature spiritually so that 144 thousand of them can be marked in their foreheads with the signature of God - Revelation 7.

At this point, we could call this 'case closed' and go home. We have all the proof that we need to say that Ezekiel's Fire comes at the time of Gog and Magog and long before the coming of the Antichrist. But, if we stopped there, we'd be missing a lot of valuable detail.

Zechariah 12:4

If Ezekiel's Fire is a nova event of unimaginable ferocity, then we should see equally unimaginable side-effects from this solar cataclysm.

And we do.

Let's go to Zechariah 12, which speaks of the spiritual salvation of Israel and look at this verse:

4 In that day,” says the Lord, “I will strike every horse with confusion, and its rider with madness; I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness.

Zechariah 12:4 (NKJV)

Normally, a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) from a more normal event, like a solar flare, would not have this effect upon cars and vehicles. An X-class flare would only cause problems for electricity distribution. But, this solar nova will be so far beyond X-class that we would need to look at a Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) to see something similar. And, Zechariah 12:4 describes the effects of an EMP, perfectly. But, I'm getting ahead of myself.

Let me pull back a bit and ask you this question:

What is Zechariah 12:4 describing?

Well, if we understand that Zechariah is talking about the modern age, we need to interpret the verse in a modern context.

What are the horses that Zechariah speaks of?

Well, unless you wish to claim that everyone, everywhere in the world will soon go back to riding horses, we must assume that Zechariah's use of 'horses' is actually a reference to more modern modes of transportation:

  • motorcycles
  • cars
  • trucks
  • military vehicles

So, if Zechariah is using horses as a euphemism to describe modern transportation...

What would happen to them if they were hit by an EMP from something like Ezekiel's Fire?

Well, Zechariah speaks of these horses as having been struck blind.

What does a horse do when it is struck blind?

Nothing.

No horse with any sense at all, does ANYTHING but stay in one place if it has been struck blind.

What does a vehicle do that has been struck by an EMP?

The same thing. Nothing.

What is the context of Zechariah 12:4?

Well, we can find it, a few verses down, here:

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.

- Zechariah 12:10 (NKJV)

THAT is the same context as Isaiah 30:26 and Ezekiel 39:6. And, that context is...

...spiritual salvation, the return of Israel to God.

That is a positive and conclusive match.

So, now we have three passages that describe events from the same moment in time:

  • The Sun is seven times brighter
  • A fire rains down upon the Earth
  • Vehicles cease to be able to operate

The only possible event that would account for all three of those characteristics is a small nova event - something bigger than anything that we have EVER seen from our sun in more than four thousand years. There is no phenomenon that can account for all three of those, except a solar nova. None.

Oh, and one more thing. Many have written to me about the use of nuclear weapons and whatnot. Please focus your mind on how this is described in the Bible. God speaks of himself as the cause of this, no one else. There is no way that God is going to diminish His glory by allowing foolish humans to get the credit. This will be God, demonstrating that He lives and that He truly reigns over the heavens and the Earth.

Now, if this solar nova were only going to impact the Middle East, I wouldn't be writing this. At least, I wouldn't be writing this in English.

No, the problem is that a vastly larger area of the world will be affected by this nova event. And, hundreds of millions - even billions - of people will die. Those that survive will experience a world of suffering.

And, I do NOT want you to be one of them.

Now, there is more evidence from the Bible to take you through, and I will do that later. But, right now, I want to take you on a detour through the science behind this prophecy.
