122) Trumpets 1-4 World War

God announces his impending attack with trumpet calls for his people to join him in battle!

To me! To me!

The goal in this battle is to survive everlasting death. Mortal death is just a flesh wound!

Don’t invent your own story. The battle of Jericho, a stronghold of pure evil, provides the battle plan. God’s servants blow trumpets for 6 days / eras without taking action. It is not until the last trumpet is blown that God’s servants follow him into attacking the enemy. This is documented by the use of “there followed” the actions after each of the trumpet blasts. These premature reactions to the trumpet calls to war reflect the lack of impulse control by Satan’s workers.

We can parallel the events following each trumpet blast with the events at Jericho following each day’s trumpet blast. Although these are not documented in the book of Joshua, they are well known features of siege warfare.

The Canaanites lining the walls of Jericho would have stockpiled stones, arrows, garbage, excrement, putrid dead bodies of animals and people, boiling oil, fire and anything else that could cause damage to hurl at the attackers. They would have shouted insults, imprecations, curses and dares at them as well as enticed them to come over to the apparent safe side. Any other besieging army would be calling for a parley, spreading propaganda, building war machines, cutting down the surrounding orchards.

True believers in the Savior of the Bible keep the faith of the Bible. They aren’t intimidated into falling away to the enemy, and are not thrown off balance, unlike nominal Christians making alliances with politicians.

“And after these things [6th seal extinction event] I saw

  • four angels standing on the four corners of the earth,
  • holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree…(Revelation 7:1)

While many of us believe the earth is flattish and not a round ball, I don’t know anyone who thinks it is square. It’s a manner of speaking – all four cardinal directions by which even in our current day the winds are named.

We tend to assume that every reference to “angel” refers to one of God’s servants, but this is not so. Case in point – the angel of the bottomless pit.

“Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold,

  • the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. 
  • And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first was like a lion…second, like to a bear…another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl…a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth.” (Daniel 7)

We discover that these four winds / spirit beings are God’s ministers by the account of two of them being Gabriel and Michael who strive with two of the four evil beasts.

In contrast, the four angels in Revelation are on earth, party to the extinction event of the 6th seal and therefore members of the adversary’s army.

Wind is caused by the uneven temperatures of sections of the atmosphere. An asteroid hit, a volcanic explosion or a nuclear explosion results in

  1. a physical shock wave that can level skyscrapers, then
  2. a searing blast of heat that can vaporize material, then
  3. a momentary vacuum resulting from the outward expulsion of all air,
  4. followed by a reactive inward rush of air creating a vast firestorm exceeding the most powerful hurricane winds.

Jack London was on site as a newspaper journalist to describe the winds that followed the 1906 San Francisco great fire, caused when thousands of gas appliances were upturned by a massive earthquake. At the time, San Francisco was the 9th largest city in the United States.

Smoke Billowing over San Francisco after 1906 Earthquake

The earthquake shook down in San Francisco hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of walls and chimneys. But the conflagration that followed burned up hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of property. Not in history has a modern imperial city been so completely destroyed…

Within an hour after the earthquake shock the smoke of San Francisco’s burning was a lurid tower visible a hundred miles away. And for three days and nights this lurid tower swayed in the sky, reddening the sun, darkening the day, and filling the land with smoke…

At nine o’clock Wednesday evening I walked down through the very heart of the city. I walked through miles and miles of magnificent buildings and towering skyscrapers. Here was no fire. All was in perfect order. The police patrolled the streets. Every building had its watchman at the door. And yet it was doomed, all of it…

At one o’clock in the morning I walked down through the same section…A rain of ashes was falling…The district had been absolutely abandoned…Half a dozen blocks away it was burning on both sides. The street was a wall of flame…

I watched the vast conflagration from out on the bay. It was dead calm. Not a flicker of wind stirred. Yet from every side wind was pouring in upon the city. East, west, north, and south, strong winds were blowing upon the doomed city. The heated air rising made an enormous suck. Thus did the fire of itself build its own colossal chimney through the atmosphere. Day and night this dead calm continued, and yet, near to the flames, the wind was often half a gale, so mighty was the suck.

“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.”

“Hail” is more descriptive of an uncountable number of projectiles “raining” down from the sky than the composition of frozen water. “A hail of bullets” has often used to describe a battle scenario, although much larger long-range missiles are more likely in our day. This is consistent with the description of accompanying fire from the rockets propelling the missiles and/or impact and blood spray from missiles.

Decades of the Arms Race has resulted in stockpiles of satellite-based and intercontinental ballistics missiles that fit this description, especially America’s Star Wars program. Notice, Star Wars is a defensive system, supporting the hypothesis that, as judgment begins at the house of God, America, not Russia or China, experiences the first strike (sixth seal event).

Thirty-three years ago [this was published April 2021] the Star Wars program was easily the most elaborate and complex defense system ever conceived.

“I call upon the scientific community in our country, those who gave us nuclear weapons, to turn their great talents now to the cause of mankind and world peace, to give us the means of rendering these nuclear weapons impotent and obsolete,” President Ronald Reagan said on March 23, 1983. The speech announced the creation of a new missile defense called the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), which quickly became known as Star Wars.

It envisaged a vast network of laser-armed satellites, air-based missiles, and ground-based interceptors missiles and electromagnetic railguns. These would be used to intercept incoming nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles from the Soviet Union and other enemies, all coordinated through advanced sensors linked to supercomputers, and protect the United States from direct nuclear attack. By being able to neutralize at least most of the incoming nuclear warheads, the U.S. hoped to show the Soviet Union that any potential nuclear confrontation was hopeless…

A look at President Reagan’s Star Wars program, 33 years later
Graphic of how SDI would work.

The skepticism towards the program was intense from the beginning. Besides the clear violations of the ABM treaty such a system would represent, it would also extend the arms race even deeper into space.Swarms of hunter-killer satellites and space-based lasers would be a frightening new frontier, and the Soviet Union would almost certainly try to respond in kind. The projected costs of the system ran into the hundreds of billions of dollars, and the inevitable cost overruns would balloon the Star Wars program to a huge percentage of the U.S. military budget. In the event of an a nuclear attack, unproven technology would have be coordinated on an unprecedented scale and work perfectly the first time. The hurdles involved were well-nigh insurmountable. Nevertheless, by 1987 more than $3 billion was being appropriated annually by Congress to start developing the technology, roughly $6.5 billion in today’s dollars…The simple fact was that the program was never going to be feasible against as many weapons as an opponent like the Soviet Union could put into play. By 1986 the Soviets had over 40,000 nuclear warheads stockpiled, including nearly a thousand ICBM’s with up to 10 warheads a piece that could shower and overwhelm any target within 30 minutes of launch. Soviet submarines armed with nuclear missiles could get close enough to U.S. coasts that their payloads could strike hundreds of targets faster than any conceivable system could detect and intercept them. Even if SDI could stop 90 percent of the Soviet’s warheads, the 10 percent that made it through would leave the United States in radioactive ruin.

Though scaled back, development on weapons envisaged in Star Wars continued throughout the 1990s. Its legacy can be seen in today’s Missile Defense Agency. The MDA has cost more than $100 billion since 2002, and the test results of its missile interceptors have been decidedly mixed.

But we can be certain of one thing. It will be used.

The “third part” of trees and “all” green grass does not need to refer to the entire earth to be an accurate statement reporting damage against the field of attack. When Gideon requested that “all the earth” be dry, he included only the vicinity of the event.

The reference to trees being destroyed is a clue to

  • the location of the 1st trumpet counter-attack
  • and therefore the identity of the initiator of the first strike of the 6th seal.

I don’t envision a massive counter-strike being launched against Amazonia, Canada, the Congo, or Southeast Asian Islands.

Russia it is – the initiator of WWIII.

The loss of so many trees is also significant for the environment.

More than 60,000 types of trees cover 31% of the planet, but we’re losing tree coverage at an alarming rate. In tropics regions alone, more than 30 soccer fields worth of trees were lost each minute of 2019 due to deforestation for the sake of agriculture…

Trees play a key role in combating climate change because they absorb carbon from the atmosphere. Trees actually provide us humans with the air we breathe, while removing harmful greenhouse gas emissions from the environment. Over the course of a year, one mature tree can release 260 pounds of oxygen and can sequester more than 48 pounds of carbon dioxide through the process of photosynthesis.

More than just that, trees improve water quality and reduce soil erosion as well. Trees act as buffers for extreme weather events…Tree leaves also prevent harsh wind and rain from eroding the soil, while tree roots hold soil in place.

The loss of “all green grass” is of primary significance for food supplies in grains as a primary food source as well as livestock for meat and dairy products.

“And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea:

  • and the third part of the sea became blood;
  • And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died;
  • and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

“As it were” clues us in that this is a simile, not an actual mountain or volcano. Neither John nor his readers had any experience with the extinction event, technological or otherwise, that he was seeing and he had to fall back on known images to provide some idea of it.

The Normandy Invasion of WWII provides some historical background for understanding what John is describing.

Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on June 6, 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history…The Normandy landings have been called the beginning of the end of war in Europe…

more than 5,000 ships and landing craft carrying troops and supplies left England for the trip across the Channel to France, while more than 11,000 aircraft were mobilized to provide air cover and support for the invasion…

more than 4,000 Allied troops lost their lives in the D-Day invasion, with thousands more wounded or missing.

McCorkle landed on Omaha Beach at about 6:30 on the morning of June 6, 1944.

“As we were getting off the landing craft, men all around me were falling and screaming; blood had turned the water red,” he recalled. “Somehow — I am convinced with the help of God — I got onto the beach…”

Many of his friends were killed or wounded in the first 15 minutes or so.

The Germans had many mortars in action behind the sand dunes and were lobbing shells, killing and wounding many.

“The gunfire and shelling were so heavy that it took us about one hour to reach the base of the sand dune which gave us some protection from machine gun and rifle fire,” he said. “After I reached the base of the dune and looked back, it was shocking to see the dead and the wounded on the beach…When we regrouped at the road, we had 15 men missing out of the original 30 who landed.” 

D-Day is always the story of brave men struggling across beaches and then fighting their way inland. Another story, however, was unfolding at sea. At least 200 ships and landing craft sank off the beaches…

Operation Neptune…would bombard the Normandy coast from several miles off shore…while overhead, waves of Allied aircraft headed for Normandy to pulverize what Adolf Hitler called the Atlantic Wall, “impregnable against every enemy.”

Allied strategists believed the wall’s fortifications could be destroyed by naval bombardment and aerial bombings. A briefing officer in England, describing the expected results, said, “Every grain of sand will be turned over twice before the first wave hits the beach.” But…aircraft had dropped their bombs far beyond the beaches because clouds obscured targets…

“Up to within a few hundred yards of the water’s edge,” says an official history, “there was every reason to hope that the enemy shore defenses might have been neutralized. Then, many of the leading craft began to come under fire from automatic weapons and artillery, which increased in volume as they approached touchdown.”

The Neptune plan had to be changed. Destroyers were ordered to risk grounding by steaming close to shore and firing their 5-inch guns as supporting fire for the men on the beach…

By 1957, salvagers had harvested 25,000 tons of Neptune metal off a stretch of D-Day beach from Omaha to Sword, the easternmost invasion beach.

A major part of the Allies strategy was to limit German resistance to the landing.

In the months and weeks before D-Day, the Allies carried out a massive deception operation intended to make the Germans think the main invasion target was Pas-de-Calais (the narrowest point between Britain and France) rather than Normandy. In addition, they led the Germans to believe that Norway and other locations were also potential invasion targets. Many tactics were used to carry out the deception, including fake equipment; a phantom army commanded by George Patton and supposedly based in England, across from Pas-de-Calais; double agents; and fraudulent radio transmissions…

At first, Hitler, believing the invasion was a feint designed to distract the Germans from a coming attack north of the Seine River, refused to release nearby divisions to join the counterattack. Reinforcements had to be called from further afield, causing delays. He also hesitated in calling for armored divisions to help in the defense. Moreover, the Germans were hampered by effective Allied air support, which took out many key bridges and forced the Germans to take long detours.

Would the Allies have been victorious on D-Day if Germany had known they were coming, and had all their military might launched against them?

During Desert Storm when 1/3 of America’s fleet was in the Persian Gulf, a massive combined strike from Iraq could have sunk it into the sea. This consideration continues to fit with the foundational concept of America on the defensive against an Eastern coalition.

The Trump administration’s long-term shipbuilding plan, required by Congress, projects spending $167 billion over five years to boost the Navy’s fleet as it confronts a rising China in the Pacific…

“Since taking office, President Trump has promised to increase the size of our naval fleet to 355 battle ships, re-establish the United States as the global power at sea to continue to secure our country while making it more prosperous…road map for achieving maritime supremacyand sending a strong message to our adversaries like China…

The plan relies on a national defense budget topline of $759 billion in fiscal 2022, adjusted for inflation in the future years…derived in part by moving $30 billion from…the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan and the Middle East…

The new plan “is a terrible idea, because the Navy won’t have the money to pay for sustainment and manning of the additional ships,” said Bryan Clark, a naval programs analyst at the Hudson Institute.

In the standard war ping-pong game of strike and counter-strike, it’s America’s turn to hit the ball back into the opponents’ court. And she apparently directs this one to a major Russian eastern ally.

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp,

The pattern I’m picking up is strike and counter-strike, standard war games, expecting that both sides are prepared to return fire. So in the scenario I’m proposing – based on current world news – it’s that it America’s turn to hit the ball back into the opponents’ court.

Decades of the Arms Race has resulted in stockpiles of satellite-based and intercontinental ballistics missiles that fit this description, especially America’s Star Wars program.

karman-line

Despite the popular belief that space is peaceful, the military has always played a role in its exploration. The first rocket to breach the 100-kilometer-high Karman Line, which defines the beginning of outer space, was a German military V2 fired in 1944. The first satellite, Sputnik, soared into orbit [ranging from 200 km to 950 kmatop a modified Soviet intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in 1957.

NASA, founded one year later, established America’s space program as strictly civilian. Still…military…officers piloted most Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo spacecraft, which its [military] rockets boosted into space. Behind the scenes, the Pentagon planned its own secret space missions, coordinated by an agency later renamed DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).

Yet space remained free of actual weapons during the Cold War.

If you accept that at face value then you must confess that you put your faith in politics and the media or that you simply bury your head in the sand. Some statements are simply beyond belief.

For starters, in the setting of the Space Race, Is there any suspicion that there were Cold War politics considerations to establish the Karman Line where it is to set the bar high enough that the Soviets’ Sputnik “failed” to reach “space”?

In this paper I revisit proposed definitions of the boundary between the Earth’s atmosphere and outer space…from historical, physical and technological viewpoints and propose 80 km as a more appropriate boundary than the currently popular 100 km Von Kármán line…

The argument about where the atmosphere ends and space begins predates the launch of the first Sputnik…boundaries ranging from 30 km to 1.5 million km have been suggested…

Although the subject has not been much addressed in the physics literature, there is an extensive law/policy literature on the subject…COPUOS has wrestled with the issue continuously since 1966 without a conclusion. COPUOS, the Committee on Peaceful Uses Of Outer Space, was established in 1959 and is the UN body dealing with astronautics.

Goedhart lists almost 30 different proposals from the 1951–1962 period for an altitude boundary ranging from 20 to 400 km; most values are in the 75–100 km range. A number of these authors suggest that the large variations with time of atmospheric properties make it futile to locate a true boundary of space based on physical arguments. In this paper I will argue the contrary: there is a moderately-well-defined boundary of space, it coincides with the Karman line as originally defined, and that line is close to 80 km, not 100 km…

my main interest here is to define a boundary of space for the use of historians of spaceflight…

In recent decades the 100 km Karman line has gained ascendancy as the most commonly used boundary, notably for the Ansari X-Prize won by the Spaceship One team.

The ‘official’ status of the von Karman line, such as it is, comes from the undated paper ‘100 km Altitude Boundary For Astronautics’ on the web site of the Astronautics Records Commission (ICARE) of the Fdration Aronautique Internationale (FAI), which certifies world records for aeronautics and astronautics. It is unfortunate that discussion in this official document in the section ‘demonstration of usefulness of Karman line’ appears to be poorly researched:

In the early 1960s the U.S. X-15 Aircraft was flown up to 108 km. In that part of the flight it was really a free falling rocket, with no aerodynamic control possible. In fact, it was considered an astronautical flight, and the pilot got, as a consequence, his astronautical wings, i.e. the recognition of being an astronaut.

This is not incorrect, but the USAF considered all X-15 flights above 80 km as astronautical flights and gave those pilots astronaut wings. So this paragraph would argue for 80 km, not 100 km. The first non-NASA pilot to be awarded astronaut wings…flew to 95 km on 1962 Jul 17. If a limit of 100 km instead of 80 km is used, White, Robert Rushworth, Jack McKay, Bill Dana and Mike Adams lose their space traveler status (Joe Engle keeps his because he later flew on Shuttle, and Joe Walker passed the Karman line on his X-15 flights).

In the past few years, even lower values have been proposed. The prominent astrophysicist Alan Stern has argued (personal communication) for balloon altitudes in the 30–35 km range as being ‘space’ or ‘near space’; Stern is involved in the World View high-altitude-balloon near-space tourism venture…

The true outer edge to the Earth’s atmosphere, or a reasonable candidate for it, is the magnetic shock front with the solar wind…One can also consider the gravitational boundary of the Earth-Moon system with respect to the Sun, conventionally chosen to be the 1.5-million-km radius…these boundaries may be used to distinguish space in the Earth-Moon system from interplanetary space…

On the basis of these physical, technological and historical arguments, I therefore suggest that a value of 80 km is a more suitable choice to use as the canonical lower ‘edge of space’ in circumstances where such a dividing line between atmosphere and space is desired.

As detailed in the post Cosmology, an investigation into Hubble’s historical context, technological capabilities and imaginative productions is far more indicative of military use under a cloak of scientific inquiry. After what has come to light about our government’s undercover operations during the Cold War that shouldn’t seem like a far-fetched idea.

A member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, Dr. John Jacob Nutter reveals...the many and varied types of covert action-subsidies, graymail, propaganda, psychological and economic warfare, military support, paramilitary operations, coups d’etat, and assassinations-and provides detailed examples of success and failure undertaken in the name of “national security.”

Unusual and exclusive, The CIA’s Black Ops is a courageous and unprecedented declassification of foreign exploits and domestic secrets, covering clandestine activities from the birth of special operations to today’s underground actions–many operations so covert that government officials don’t know (or don’t want to know) they are taking place.

Today…“The space environment has become increasingly congested, competitive and contested,” Frank Rose, a senior fellow for security and strategy at the Brookings Institution and former assistant secretary of state for arms control, explained to Congress in March 2019…

From the start, the military rationale for space weapons was to control the high ground and shoot down enemies. Such an attack, generals and politicians argued, would be impossible to stop…

The U.S. military dreams of “space superiority” or “counter-space dominance.” Judging by their own publications and statements, Russian and Chinese strategists clearly share such reveries. Nascent space powers like India and North Korea may do so as well. Yet technology advantages often prove fleeting. After all, the U.S. military once had an exclusive hold on atomic weapons, jet aircraft, ICBMs, semiconductors, cyberwarfare, and artificial intelligence. It may still lead in those fields, but it is clearly no longer alone…

efforts to keep space a weapons-free zone dates back to the Outer Space Treaty of 1967. Among other things, it prohibited weapons of mass destruction and the establishment of military bases in space…

Yet today’s international climate seems less welcoming for intensive diplomatic negotiations and new international treaties. Some organizations, such as the Stimson Center and the Union of Concerned Scientists, have drafted codes of conduct and proposals for spacefaring nations to avoid space conflict. Even if nations adopt them, they do not carry the same force as a binding treaty.

As the technologies of space warfare continue to become ever more sophisticated, the Earth seems trapped in a slow spiral of escalation toward open conflict in space. In some ways, it seems like a rerun of the Cold War, but with more players and less predictability. In this realm of move and countermove, India’s recent antisatellite exercise is merely the latest symptom.

“and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.”

The Great Himalayan Watershed (GHW) encompasses most of Asia’s rivers — today around 45 per cent of the world’s population depends on the watershed. This location targets Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the wealthy Southeast Asian Moslems, and economically powerful China, all of whom represent American enemies.

A “great star from heaven” describes either an InterContinental Ballistics Missile or a satellite-based missile armed with a weaponized water-born agent of mass destruction. An air-borne agent can literally blow back onto the sender via unpredictable winds.

And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

This cascade of events leading to the end of the world as we know it is not just prophecy by fanatical religious fundamentalists, it is a prediction by top scientists.

A snowball effect is how it rolls in the book A Path Where No Man Thought: Nuclear Winter and the End of the Arms Race by eminently popular atheist scientist Carl Sagan and Richard Turco. Published in 1990, it continues to be defended as a real and present danger by scientists.

Recently updated geopolitical assessments have led scientists to warn that, one way or another, human misbehavior is bringing our world to an end.

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists gave its annual presentation of the Doomsday Clock in January 2019. A group of scientists and scholars, including 15 Nobel laureates, set the clock at two minutes before the symbolic apocalyptic midnight…the closest the clock has ever been to symbolizing doom. And that was before Presidents Trump and Putin pulled out of a major nuclear arms limitation treaty.

Check. The sixth seal.

for I have heard from the LORD God of hosts a consumption /utterly consumed, devastation, even determined upon the whole earth. ” (Isaiah 28:14-22)
