Fukushima Reactor a False 3rd Trumpet?

The LDS Church has no official doctrine with regard to the exact timing of the Second Coming nor of specific fulfillment of any specific apocalyptic scriptures except that generally speaking we are in the Last Days, we aught to be spiritually and temporally prepared, and the calamities that are occurring are signs of the times and will continue unless we repent.

While Elder Bednar and Elder Holland have spoken about trumpets sounding in recent LDS General Conferences, the following does not necessarily represent official LDS Doctrine. And, at this point, it doesn't really matter what trumpet and seal we think we are on, as long as we all agree that the trumpets are sounding or are about the sound. And I am sure most Christians are getting the sense that we are in the Last Days and summer is nigh.

Seven Trumpets:

1st Trumpet: Hail, Fire and Blood burn 1/3 trees and all grass
2nd Trumpet: Mountain in the Sea turns to blood and kills 1/3 fish die and 1/3 ships
3rd Trumpet: Woomwood star contaminates 1/3 rivers and 1/3 springs
4th Trumpet: 1/3 part of Sun, Moon, Stars hidden
5th Trumpet: Another star falls, Sun is dark by smoke and Scorpion Locusts torment man 5 months
6th Trumpet: Armageddon kills 1/3 man, 2 Witnesses prophesy and call plagues
7th Trumpet: Christ Appears and wrath unleashed

The Fall of Rome followed the 7 Trumpets Pattern:
1st Trumpet: Alaric leads Goth attack by land
2nd Trumpet: Gaiseric leads Vandal attack by sea
3rd Trumpet: Attila the Hun conquers by river valley
4th Trumpet: Odoacer leads Germanic Foeterati in Insurrection (empire fractured)
5th Trumpet: Arabs (locusts) invasion
6th Trumpet: Ottoman siege of Constantinople
7th Trumpet: Wrath = Plagues of Dark Ages

Latter-Day 7 Trumpets:
1st Trumpet: Goldman Sachs Derivative Financial Crisis (Financial Empire)
2nd Trumpet: BP Gulf Oil Spill and Fish Kills (Water to Blood)
3rd Trumpet: Fukushima Nuclear Accident (Wormwood = Chernobyl)
4th Trumpet: Insurrection, Civil War (America Fractured)
5th Trumpet: Invasion of Locusts (China, Russia, Mexico)
[google George A Smith vision]
6th Trumpet: Armageddon, WW3, 2 Witnesses Prophesy
7th Trumpet: 7 Vials of Wrath Poured Out

If trumpet #3 involves Fukushima or some other similar nuclear release, then the next trumpet to sound (#4) would seem to involve the failure of local, state, and national governments due to civil unrest, civil war, and insurrection which we are already beginning to see. The collapse of government into tribes is what occurred in the Book of Mormon in 3Nephi5-7 and is a type of the last days. Quarterly earnings reports which determine Stock Prices following the Fukushima disaster and high gas prices are due about July.

I personally interpret the 1/3 part of the Sun, moon, and stars being darkened as referring to the failure of 1/3 part of national, state, and local governments. We are already seeing insurrections, and the failure of governments now. Every day the American people are loosing more and more faith in their government, in law enforcement, and in the military until eventually some trigger event could happen like in 3 Nephi 5-7, and the people could abandon the government and American and other nations could divide up into tribes just like the Book of Mormon.

The 6th Seal in Revelation speaks of the darkening of the Sun, moon and stars which refers to the Apostasy and the it speaks of the Restoration that occurred from 1000 ad - 2000 ad. This reference to the sun, moon, and stars darkening referred to all spiritual light going out. It is in this sense that the sun, moon, and stars appear on the Salt Lake Temple.

The 4th Trumpet also refers to the the failure of the sun, moon, and stars. But unlike the 6th Seal, only a 1/3rd of the sun, moon, and stars fail. I believe if the Book of Mormon and Revelation speak of the same things, that this could refer to the failure of national, state, and local governments.

It seems with all the civil unrest all over the world, bailouts and bankruptcies, we are already beginning to see the failure of governments.

The 5th trumpet would be invasion of the locusts (heathen armies) (see Joel 1-3) (1st Woe)
The 6th trumpet is Armageddon (2nd Woe)
The 7th trumpet is the pouring out of the 7 Vials of wrath. (3rd Woe)

The thing about the trumpets and woes I believe that this could refer to the fact that Trumpet 1 (Goldman Sachs fraud/bankruptcy), Trumpet 2 (BP oil spill), Trumpet 3 (Fukushima), Trumpet 4 (government failures) may not necessarily significantly negatively affect the majority of the righteous. This will probably not necessarily be the case for trumpets 5-7. Well, we hope we are gathered in Zion before Trumpet 7 and the 7 vials of wrath.

Let me also say, that I am not necessarily convinced that the Goldman Sachs, BP, and Fukushima events are necessarily the official Trumpets of Revelation. I am of the opinion that these events were engineered or at least set up to fail. But I also think that these events could be put out there as false trumpets to get us thinking 3 years too early. Satan has gone through a lot of trouble to "change the times and the laws". Accordingly, scholars claim Christ was born 3BC, and Daniel's 7o years begins with the UN declaration of the State of Israel in 1947. Consequently, some are being led to believe that the 7 years of the Tribulation will proceed from 2010-2017.

However, I remember the situation in the Book of Mormon where the non-believers rounded up the believers and told them that the time had already passed when the scriptures predicted the coming of Christ into the world. It is possible that Mormon included this detail because history will repeat itself in the Last Days. So, these false trumpets could be a way to fool people into accepting a false timeline. If Christ were born 1BC, and Daniel's 70 weeks begins with the "Law of Return" in 1950, then it may well be that we haven't even entered the Tribulation period yet until 2013-2020.

Trumpets 5-7 constitute the 3 Woe Judgments. Number 5 involves the invasion of the locusts which is likely involves the Abomination of Desolation and the Invasion of Heathen Armies. Joel 1-3 describes the burning of Babylon and invasion of heathen armies which will likely be a nuclear first strike and invasion by Russia, China, and Mexico. Since Daniel says the Abomination of Desolation will occur in the midst of Daniel's final 7 years, which are the Tribulation years, then I think it safe to conclude that all 7 Trumpets will sound within the Tribulation years.

So, are we actually in the Tribulation, or does someone want us to think we are? The tell-tail evidence to knowing where we are, will be the Abomination of Desolation. This event which Pres. Benson, Elder McConkie described as thermonuclear, and which was described by Joel, Daniel, and John, was seen in vision by Pres. George Albert Smith. It will be unmistakable. Thankfully, Pres. Smith gave us a key to know when this dire event was to occur. Pres. Smith said that this event would occur after the election and before the inauguration of the President of the United States following a "Greek" President (google Pres. George Albert Smith Vision). "Greek" was a euphemism in 1930's Utah for a person not of Northern European descent. Since, an inauguration is only needed when there is a change of President; we could expect to be in the midst of the Tribulation in 2012 if Pres. Obama loses the election. If Pres. Obama wins, then we will have an additional 4 years. I am not going to vote for Pres. Obama, but I am "in a way" rooting for him.

Real or false, we are seeing signs of Trumpet #4. This trumpet points to social unrest and a failure or darking of 1/3 sun, moon, and stars. I interpret this to mean that we could expect to see civil unrest, civil war, martial law, bankruptcy, and failure of local, state, and national governments on the horizon. In fact, I think we are already beginning to "hear" the warning sound of this trumpet. Many have predicted that the unrest and riots that we have seen in foreign countries will be coming shortly to America.

This warning of social unrest reminded me of the new phenomenon called the "Flash Mob". A flash mob is a group of people, connected via Twitter and Facebook, who come together at one location for some purpose. To this point, flash mobs (see YouTube), engage in various good natured and fun activities like signing and dancing. However, I am sure it is only a matter of time before we start seeing the dark side of this phenomenon where people come together to protest, trespass, riot, vandalize, etc. That is when the riot police get called in and things begin to escalate leading to martial law and gun confiscation.

Another false fulfillment of John's 3rd Trumpet could be the failure of the Fort Peck Dam in Montana. There are 6 Dams on the Missouri, up-river from Kansas City and St. Louis. Fort Peck Dam is the more vulnerable. Already at record lake levels, with record snow pack ready to melt and surge into the Lake, the Fort Peck Dam, Like the Teton Dam, is an earth dam build on a poor shale foundation. If the Fort Peck Dam were to fail, like a series of falling dominoes, the surge of water would take out the other 5 dams, numerous nuclear power plants, and several major cities along the way. If this failure occurs, we would really see a curse of the rivers, together with serious nuclear contamination.

D&C 121:33 As well might man stretch forth his puny arm to stop the Missouri river in its decreed course, or to turn it up stream, as to hinder the Almighty from pouring down knowledge from heaven upon the heads of the Latter-day Saints.

I though that before you said that the Gulf oil spill was Wormwood. Which is it?

David B said...

If you search my posts for (trumpets gulf) you should see where I talk about the Gulf Oil Spill is connection with the Second Trumpet and the Seas being turned to blood.

Second Trumpet = Sea to Blood = BP Gulf Oil Spill
Third Trumpet = Wormwood = Nuclear Contamination, Terrorist Dirty Bomb, etc.
Fourth Trumpet = Sun, Moon, Stars Fail = Civil Unrest and War, Martial Law, Collapse of American Society.

The Ukranian word for Wormwood just happens to be Chernobyl.

Could the fall of the sun moon and stars be Japan (land of the rising sun), the middle east (crescent moon on most islamic flags), and the USA (50 stars)?

David B said...

"Ukrainian word for Wormwood is Chernobyl"

Exactly, after Trumpet #2, I had been looking for some nuclear incident or dirty bomb. I originally thought terrorists were going to set of Co60 dirty bombs in US cities. But this Fukushima disaster may turn out worse than even that.

I and others interpret the sun, moon and stars failing to refer to the failure of government. Kinda like what happened in the Book of Mormon in 3Nephi.

I'm closely involved with Fukushima. It isn't even close to contaminating 1/3 of all waters. In fact, though detectable, it is still well, well below anything harmful. Chernobyl itselt, being exponentially worse than Fukushima, didn't contaminate that much water. So, no... Fukushima's real situation is being grossly overstated by the media.

A millionth of a gram of plutonium can cause cancer. Reactor 3 has plutonium in it... they released 9 thousand tons of radioactive waTer into the ocean. There is no such thing as a "safe" amount of radiation. And keep in mind this ISN'T the same radiation used in X rays. In reality this situation is being grossly UNDERSTATED by world governments and biased nuclear experts to the media, who in turn downplays it to the world. We already have it in the air in the US, in our crops and water, and cesium has a half life of 30 yrs. Plutonim/uranium is like hundreds of thousands or million yrs..."Woe to the child who drinks of his mothers breast in these days".

Hi so I just had a thought about the 4th trumpet: 1/3 sun, moon, stars hidden. If you look at a map of the earth during the night you see that the globe is covered in artificial light. now if you john the revelator you have no idea what is causing this light so what do you liken it to? Sun moon and starts maybe? now as for 1/3 of these "sun moon and stars" being hidden or going out. look at America on the map. Just a rough estimate, but it seems that America causes about 1/3 of this artificial light. An EMP going off in America could put out all these lights. could this be what john saw? all the lights in America going out? If an EMP where to go off America would literally be paralyzed and would become easy pickings for an invasion like the one you say the 5 trumpet could be. what do you think?

One quick correction on the statement regarding inaugurations. An inauguration is still held even for a re-elected president. I will not be voting for Obama.

Wormwood is used in several places in the Bible and denotes "bitterness and sorrow". In this one instance the word is capitalized denoting a person or thing. In "a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters". burning as it were a lamp often denotes a spirit. This is possibility a spirit that never had a body following the devil.

Hi Chapter 17 is the creation of the beast(nuclear power) Chapter 18 is the attack of 9/11+the millstone thrown into the water by the angel is Fukushima. We are now at chapter 20. Repent now you do not have much I am here since 2010 I started the man made radionuclide operation and dispersal of the info found 3 months before Fukushima. I am using Facebook at the moment look for me.
