BEGINNING OF SORROWS
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
the entire world watched, the televised pictures began to emerge
from what now has become the greatest disaster of our lifetime, maybe since the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Is
G-d trying to tell the world something, or is this just another
problem with nature? We must understand that G-d controls nature.
The Scriptures speak of a time within the last days when
there would be sorrows come to this earth. I watched as the great
minds of this world tried to give us all the answers as to why
this devastation took place. The scientific community took the
stance of the earth going through a stage of redoing itself. Never
throughout all this did anyone that I heard of wonder if
G-d was behind this. One newscaster mentioned in jest that this
could be the cause.
I had hoped that our national ministers would say from
their lofty heights that indeed G-d was in all that had happened.
But, to no avail was there any mention of G-d being
I would like to share of the vision G-d gave me of the
event a number of years ago. I was at the beach in
The beach there can reach up to a mile wide in places during low
tide. I had just been to visit where the apostle Thomas was
buried. The vision came, and I saw a great tidal wave coming on
shore and many thousands were killed. I told the people in the
meeting that I was in that night that there was going to be this
great tidal wave and they should seek the L-rd on their country's
behalf. Up and down the eastern part of
India, the tidal wave struck killing thousands.
G-d isnít happy with this world, and He is trying to get
the attention of all the world before it is too late. I realize
this is contrary to the way most of the Church thinks, but it is
imperative that the Church wake up out of the coma it has been in
Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the
people; and they washed their clothes.
he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not
at your wives.
it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were
thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the
voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that
was in the camp trembled.
Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God;
and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended
upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a
furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
G-d has almost from the beginning used the shaking of the
earth (earthquakes) to get the attention of the people. There are
a number of other scriptures that also give accounts of G-d moving
in this manner.
when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to
the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept
came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the
holy city, and appeared unto many.
when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus,
saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared
greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day
of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the
behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord
descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the
door, and sat upon it.
These scriptures again show how our L-rd used earthquakes
to show His presence.
at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and
the prisoners heard them.
suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of
the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened,
and every one's bands were loosed.
This earthquake was used to free Paul and Silas.
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal,
and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as
sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven
about the space of half an hour.
I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were
given seven trumpets.
another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer;
and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it
with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was
before the throne.
the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the
saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar,
and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings,
and lightnings, and an earthquake.
Revelation 11:13, 19
the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of
the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven
thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the
God of heaven.
the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his
temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and
voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a
great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth,
so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the
nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to
give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about
the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the
plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
These are all evidence of G-d using earthquakes. It would
be absurd to think that He would not or could not use earthquakes
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
The L-rd is telling the disciples that there shall be
nation rising against nation, kingdom against kingdom. There would
be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in diverse places.
Then in the 8th verse, He tells them that these are the
beginning of sorrows.
This world is in for a long and hard time, for we have now
entered into this time of sorrows. The magnitude of the earthquake
was nine of the scale used to determine the strength of
earthquakes. I prophesied numbers of years ago that the
earthquakes would become stronger and stronger as the time of the
end grows closer. This is just the beginning of these stronger
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy
sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth
children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall
rule over thee.
This is the first time we read in G-dís word about
me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.
my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my
goodness extendeth not to thee;
to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom
is all my delight.
sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their
drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names
into my lips.
LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou
maintainest my lot.
lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly
will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also
instruct me in the night seasons.
In verse 4, we are told that sorrow will be multiplied to
those who hasten after another god. There is great opinion among
the peoples of this world as to who the real G-d is. This seems to
this writer as being the very problem that the living G-d is
about to solve for all mankind.
wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
If we find the path of life and walk in it, there will be
pleasures for evermore. These pleasures will not come where there
Twenty years ago, I had a vision of great earthquakes here
I saw in one of these visions an earthquake so strong that part of
the state of California had fallen into the ocean. There were so
many people killed, I saw the American flags lowered to honor the
many thousands that had died. It was only the beginning of
Sorrows are coming to this earth and there is nothing
anyone can do about it. We have one choice, and that is to serve
G-d in the fullness that He has asked for.
is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose
spirit there is no guile.
I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day
day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned
into the drought of summer. Selah.
acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I
said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou
forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.
this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when
thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they
shall not come nigh unto him.

shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding:
whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come
near unto thee.
sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD,
mercy shall compass him about.
glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy,
all ye that are upright in heart.
We must be guided by G-d and not by the traditions of man.
This is where the Church is going to have to anoint their eyes
with eye salve that they may see.
counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest
be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that
the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes
with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
In verse 10, the scripture tells us that many sorrows will
be to the wicked. Who is it that G-d is going to protect during
this time? Both Christians and Muslims perished during this latest
disaster. We as Christians know why the Muslims died, but why did
not G-d deliver the Christians? We must answer this if we are
going to be able to survive the times of sorrow that has now come
The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he
addeth no sorrow with it.
When the blessings of G-d come, there is no sorrow with it.
Something is badly wrong somewhere if we as Christians have
believed in G-d, and yet He was not able to deliver us during this
time of disaster? Maybe it is not that He was not able to deliver
us. Maybe it is because we are not serving Him as we need to.
David kept the Torah (the Law) and G-d delivered him. Keeping the
Law is the key to surviving in these last days.
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the
commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
This is what is going to make the difference in the times
that we are living in; keeping the Commandments of G-d and the
faith of Jesus (Yeshua). I have articles covering this in much
after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven,
having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great
is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and
the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and
all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her
fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication
with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through
the abundance of her delicacies.
I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my
people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive
not of her plagues.
her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her
her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according
to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much
torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a
queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and
famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is
the Lord God who judgeth her.
The world is in great trouble and we must come out from
among them that we receive not of the plagues that are coming to
this earth. The only way this is going to be done is to serve the
G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and to keep the testimony of
Psalms 91 will protect us and keep us if we are living in
and doing the words of G-d. With this and Yeshua (Jesus), we will
become more than overcomers.

under the shadow of the Almighty.

destruction that wasteth at noonday.

hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
