Exodus 2.0 is upon us | Repent, trust, and obey

This article is written to inform you about the judgments the Lord will cause to fall upon the earth shortly. These judgments will closely resemble the Exodus plagues in Moses’ days, and will impact people in different ways, by the measure of their faith:

  • the Lord’s faithful followers will abide under his protection as they trust and obey him. They will be empowered to arise and shine their light amidst increasing spiritual and physical darkness, and fully delivered along with the innocent in Christ;
  • lukewarm believers – who lack love, faith and obedience – will be beckoned to repent wholeheartedly, surrender their lives fully unto the Lord, and ready themselves to stand before him as overcomers, if need be through discipline and enforcement.
  • unsaved people and those in hard hearted rebellion against the Lord will be brought to repentance, salvation and wholehearted surrender through strong witnessing, intercession, increasing enforcement and – if need be – severe judgment.

The second Exodus

A time to shine for the wise | A time of testing and trials for the foolish & the unsaved

It is my understanding the Lord is about to repeat the Exodus plagues pattern shortly, as this article will support. The sequence of end times plagues, foreshadowed during the Exodus and mirrored in the Book of Revelation, will conclude the ‘time of the beginning of sorrows’ Scripture records in Matthew 24:5-8. It is a time that will impact people in different ways, by the measure of their faith, love and obedience in their relationship with the Lord (Galatians 6:7-8).

  • For faithful believers in Christ – referred to in Scripture as ‘wise virgins’ in Matthew 24 and as ‘overcomers in Christ’ in the Lord’s letters to the seven churches of Revelation – the time of the second Exodus plagues will be a time to abide in Christ prayerfully, rest in his trustworthiness and continue to obey his instructions. During this time of increasing spiritual and physical darkness these wise overcomers will be empowered by the Lord to arise and shine brightly for the Lord (Isaiah 60:1-2). Along with the innocent in Christ (children and the feeble minded) they will be delivered by the Lord.
  • It will be different for lukewarm and disobedient believers who lack love, faith and obedience. They are referred to as foolish virgins in Matthew 24-25 and as ‘lukewarm, compromising and disobedient servants’ in his letters to the seven churches. The Lord will beckon and discipline them to turn away from the world, from sin and from idolatry, unto repentance and wholehearted surrender to him alone (Jeremiah 29:13). It is a time for them to awaken and wise up spiritually, to seek, love, trust and obey the Lord more fully and ready themselves spiritually to stand before him as overcoming believers with enduring faith.
  • The hard hearted and unsaved, while being shown grace and mercy, receiving strong witness and intercession, will be brought to repentance by the Lord’s powerful end times witnessing and his increasingly strong arm of judgment. This is necessary for those who have hardened their hearts against him, like in the case of Pharaoh and his magicians during the Exodus.

Wise believers

Believers in Christ will be safeguarded from these end-times plagues IF they are living as ‘wise virgins’. Wise virgins, also referred to in Scripture as ‘overcomers in Christ’, are believers who walk in love, faith, and obedience by the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God to the best of their ability and have wholeheartedly surrendered their lives to the Lord (Psalm 51:17, Joel 2:12-13). They have been purified and sanctified after enduring a time of refinement, trials and testing in the wilderness (I John 3:2-3, I Cor. 11:32-33, Luke 18:1-8).

These overcoming believers will be present on earth during this time, to shine their light amidst the spiritual and physical darkness and to encourage and support others (Isaiah 60:1-2, Hebrews 10:24-25, Romans 13:12, Matthew 5:16, Philippians 2:15, 1 John 3:1-2, Daniel 12:3, Isaiah 42:6-9). They mirror the set apart Israelites in Goshen, who trusted and obeyed God and were therefore exempt from the judgments falling both upon Egypt (a type of the world) and on disobedient Israelites (Romans 13:12, Matthew 25:6-7, Isaiah 60:1-2). In the days before the Passover the faithful Israelites carefully tended to a sacrificial lamb in their homes, foreshadowing Christ’s light dwelling among them, and by the time of the Passover, they had applied its blood on their doorposts, prefiguring the Lord’s blood atonement for mankind, we are called to apply to our hearts (Exodus 12:3, Revelation 21:23, John 8:12a).

Like the Israelites of old, we are called to humbly submit our lives unto the Lord and both trust and obey him. And, as the spiritual and physical darkness increases and will soon cover the earth, we are instructed to abide in his peace, shine his light, be strong and courageous, and not give in to fear but remain sound-minded and persevere (II Timothy 1:7, Proverbs 29:25, Joshua 1:9, Psalm 56:3, John 14:27, Isaiah 43:1). And as the Israelites abided under the blood of the Passover lamb, the end-times wise virgins have applied the covering of the Lord’s blood atonement on their hearts. The wise are safe in their inner chambers and promised to have both spiritual and physical light in their hearts and homes as darkness falls, and peace and safety in their dwellings as the indignation (earthquakes, plagues, darkness, demonic manifestation, and death) passes over (Isaiah 26:20, John 8:12, 2 Samuel 22:29, Psalm 91).

Part of these overcomers in Christ – also referred to as the Lord’s jewels, who will rule and reign with Christ – is the Revelation 14 group of 144.000 witnesses – who will work the end times harvest in a glorified state, like Jesus who walked the earth in a transformed body after his resurrection. These tribulation harvesters will do great exploits (Daniel 11:32) and will perform the greater works Scripture speaks about (John 14:12, Habakkuk 2:14, Haggai 2:9, Malachi 3:16-18). They will be supernaturally empowered and enabled to move around the earth in an instant without having the physical restrictions people currently have.

Here, the different end times groups are distinguished in more detail.

Called to ready ourselves spiritually for the Lord’s coming, we strive to keep our given garments of salvation in a spotless and wrinkle-free condition (II Peter 3:13-14). Our bridegroom has gifted us beautiful adornments, reflective of the spiritual gifts and fruits we need to tend to carefully. He has shown us the way to obtain eternal crowns.

We examine ourselves by the Spirit and the Word daily, have our Ephesians spiritual armor on at all times, remain watchful and vigilant, and ensure our spiritual houses are kept in order. We are called to walk in humility and with a contrite heart, to quickly repent from sin as the Holy Spirit prompts us – especially of unforgiveness, bitterness, jealousy and hatred – for these are considered spots on our given wedding garments and disqualify us from entering heaven (I John 2:27, Revelation 2-3, Matthew 6:12-14).

We find prophetic types of the Lord’s faithful and beloved in believers like Enoch, Queen Esther, the apostle John, and Mary Magdalene, and in the overcomers in Christ described in Jesus’ letters to the seven churches of Revelation, those who have the attributes of Philadelphia and Smyrna.

Lukewarm and wayward believers

The second Exodus plague sequence is primarily ordained to bring the unsaved and those with hardened hearts to repentance and salvation and to beckon the foolish and wayward virgins to wholeheartedly return to the Lord. To the lukewarm and wayward the build-up of plagues is a time of trials, testing and faithful endurance to ‘be accounted worthy to escape all things coming upon the earth’ afterward’ (Luke 21:36-37), such as worldwide cosmic judgment in the form of fire and brimstone (akin to the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah), nuclear warfare, and demonic manifestation.

Lukewarm and wayward believers – who lack faith, love, and obedience – will be affected by the coming plagues by the measure of their faith, until they sincerely repent and wholeheartedly turn back to the Lord, after which the respective plague impact will subside and their protection will be restored (Matthew 25:1-10, Revelation 3:18, Joel 2:12-18). To them, the sequence of plagues will be a time of sanctification and refinement though trials and testing, when their spiritual condition will become apparent to themselves and others, prompting them to seek the Spirit and the Word in all earnest, learn to be an overcomer in Christ and ready themselves spiritually for his coming. In this disciplining process, their spiritual accountability and repercussions due to sin and disobedience become increasingly apparent as they encountered the Lord’s enforcement with an increasingly strong arm, in order for them to surrender their lives fully unto the Lord and develop enduring faith. The (initially) disobedient Israelites and undisciplined multitude serve as an example of this group in the first Exodus plague sequence.

Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye [even] to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he [is] gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. 14 Who knoweth [if] he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; [even] a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly: 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet. 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where [is] their God? 18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.

The hardhearted and unsaved

People who have hardened themselves against the Lord’s sovereignty, the Gospel of salvation and the Lord’s leading over their individual lives, are likely to have completely disregarded his merciful and gentle beckoning and extensive warnings unto repentance preceding his coming with severe enforcement measures (Romans 1:24-28). Man likes to imagine that he is in control of his own life and able to indulge in sin, rebellion, and idolatry, presuming he can do what he pleases without any outside accountability or repercussions. The more prideful and powerful the man, the stronger this sense of presumed independence and defiance.

As the second Exodus plague sequence progresses, the self-willed and hard hearted – including those placed in positions of authority – will be called to repent and turn back to the Lord by powerful end times witnesses (the two groups of 144.000 witnesses, mirroring Moses and Aaron in their days) coupled with the Lord’s strong arm of judgment as he works closely with his witnesses (Romans 2:5-11, 1 Hebrews 3:15, Proverbs 22:29, Revelation 7 and 14). In the Lord’s mercy, the hard hearted and unsaved will be warned and interceded for and given a last window of time to be repent and turn back to him before his wrath (the wrath of the Lamb, the first part of the tribulation judgment) is poured out in all earnest, as Moses granted such time and grace to Pharaoh and his magicians to be responsive, who serve as an example of this group (Exodus 9:28 and 10:18). We read in the first Exodus account that God foreknew the entire series of plagues would be necessary (Exodus 4).

While Pharaoh repented superficially, he lacked the true remorse, fear of the Lord and contriteness of heart in order to wholeheartedly change his heart and mind and submit to the Lord’s authority, despite being a first hand witness to the evidence of God’s existence, his demonstrated power of his realm of authority and personal life, and his grace and mercy. Pharaoh was therefor punished more and more severely as he chose to harden himself continually (while being shown the better way out and through in submission to the Lord) until there was no more time and he was given over by the Lord (Jeremiah 46:17, Luke 19:44b). In like manner Saul (1 Samuel 15:24) and Judas (Matthew 27:4) would also repent superficially in later Biblical days.

Hebrews 15:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcasses fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

The Lord’s increased enforcement placed on Pharaoh and the hardening of his heart served more layered purposes, as expressed here.

Prophetic judgment patterns that align with the 10 plagues

To be assured from Scripture the Exodus plagues will be repeated in these end times, you can read both the general references noted here, as well as the dedicated Scripture references and prophetic words and visions for each plague individually below this section.

The apocryphal book of Jasher and 2 Esdras also speak about the plagues of Egypt.

Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Isaiah 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Deuteronomy 28:27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch (boils) of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. 28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: 29And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save [thee]. … and ….. 58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; 59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, [even] great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. 60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.

Isaiah 60:1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. 

Revelation 18:4 Come out of her (spiritual Babylon), my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues. 

Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Psalm 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Joel 2:30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.

Ecclesiastes 12 1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain: 3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, 4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low; 5 Also [when] they shall be afraid of [that which is] high, and fears [shall be] in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets …

As it was in the days of Noa, Jesus is our ark today: “The Lord told Noah to put pitch on the inside and outside of the ark. Pitch is a black or dark viscous substance like tar, however the Hebrew word for pitch is “kaphar” and it’s definition is; “to cover, purge, make an atonement, make reconciliation” (Strong’s # 3722), so just as Noah was told to cover the entire inside and outside of the ark with pitch, so Jesus is our cover…our atonement, reconciling us back to God. After the ark is built, “the LORD said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation” (Genesis 7:1).

Egypt’s 10 plagues will fall again

To bring hard hearts to repentance and salvation, and beckon the lukewarm to wholeheartedly return to the Lord

Below, you can read more details about the individual plagues, my prophetic understanding of their second fulfillment and forewarning signs, and the instructions found in the Scriptures and voiced through his servants. Aside from spiritually preparing yourself and your household, this is a time to warn, inform and instruct others. As you tell others of the coming events, let REPENTANCE be a strong part of your message to them as the Lord requires all to repent and wholeheartedly turn to him as the Savior and Lord. At the end of this article, you will find additional resources to download, print, share and leave behind.

Plague 1 | Water to blood

The water of the Nile River was turned into blood. For the Jews, however, the water remained blood-free and safe to drink (Ex 4:9, 7:14-2).

This plague lasted for seven days (Exodus 7:25).

A clear division was visible from the plagues’ onset between the obedient and disobedient. It also became apparent that, far from being natural phenomena, nature’s laws and course of things were turned up-side-down, demonstrating nature was expressly ordered by its sovereign creator to act in abnormal ways that were ominously disheartening and frightening for the Egyptians, wonderfully reassuring for the Israelites, and clearly evidential to those in the valley of decision (the unsaved multitude and lukewarm Israelites). ‘Fence sitters’ among them (who acknowledged God but had chosen to remain unresponsive, lukewarm and/or disobedient) who were initially only mildly impacted by the onset of plagues, were beckoned with increasing fervor and enforcement to choose to repent, turn back to God and be obedient as well, and shown that remaining unresponsive and in compromise would have serious ramifications.

Charles Spurgeon:

Spurgeon explained it like this:“God’s demand is not that his people should have some little liberty, some little rest in their sin, no, but that they should go right out of Egypt.… Christ did not come into the world merely to make our sin more tolerable, but to deliver us right away from it. He did not come to make hell less hot, or sin less damnable, or our lusts less mighty; but to put all these things far away from his people, and work out a full and complete deliverance.… Christ does not come to make people less sinful, but to make them leave off sin altogether—not to make them less miserable, but to put their miseries right away, and give them joy and peace in believing in him. The deliverance must be complete, or else there shall be no deliverance at all.”

We are expected to witness water turning to blood at the onset of the series of plagues also, affecting both public waterways and contained water. For the wise virgins water will be clear and safe to drink. Revelation 8:5-8 mentions lighting, hail mingled with blood and fire being cast down from heaven. Revelation 8:8-11 mentions both a third of the earth’s sea water being turned to blood and rivers and fountains becoming bitter. The two witnesses will be given the authority to change water into blood also (Revelation 11:6). Water (the sea) being turned to blood is also mentioned in Revelation 16:4. We have seen precursors of this plague (in these instances water appeared ‘as’ blood, so it was not yet water turned ‘into’ blood, as Scripture states will occur.

For your consideration: a prophetic word from Vicky Goforth Parnell on this topic.

Plague 2 | Frogs

Frogs overran the countryside and even entered the sanctity of people’s homes (Ex 8:1-15). While Egypt idolized frogs, in Scripture they represent unclean spirits (referenced in Revelation 16:13-15, Psalm 78:45, Psalm 105:30). The Lord purposefully allowed frogs to infest the land and the water to be contaminated due to Egypt’s involvement with child sacrifice and attempted infanticide of the Israelites (Exodus 1:15-16), as explained here and recorded in Jasher 77.

In like manner spiritual uncleanness and the generalized practice of abortion, euthanasia and adherence to sorcery (Pharmakeia) worldwide serve as fitting end times examples of the same caliber. Repentance and deliverance prayers on this and other topics can be found here.

For your consideration, a prophetic dream Vicky Goforth Parnell We may discern the involvement of CERN (type of current day ‘magicians’, operating under the Lord’s control), while the plague will likely be explained away by false claims like ‘climate change’, algae formation etc.

Plague 3 | Lice

People and animals were infested with lice (Ex 8:16-19). While the magicians acknowledged the plague was divine in origin – by the finger of God – they did not submit to its author and Pharaoh remained stubborn, hardening his heart.

Lice are parasitical, highly contagious and they feed on human blood; they suck life-energy away if undetected and unchecked, like sin and having open doors to demonic oppression. Seeking repentance, deliverance and applying the Lord’s blood covering, as described in John 6:53-58, is the antidote to this plague: 53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. Applied, it means we pray the blood covering of the Lord’s atonement over ourselves, our children, livestock, pets and homes. More detailed instructions can be found at the section Warfare Prayers below.

Plague 4 | Flies

Swarms of stinging flies covered the land and even entered the houses of Pharaoh and his servants (Ex 8:20-32). God demonstrated his sovereignty over space and time as well as over nature by keeping the flies out of Goshen and off the Israelites. These acts of supernatural power over the created and ungodly social order must have served as a great comfort to his people, with whom he was in covenant, which he clearly upheld (Deut. 7:7–9a; cf. 10:14, 15).

We find a reference in Psalm 105:31 According to the Bible, dead or poisonous flies indicate ruining of wisdom and corruption. Therefore, foolishness can result in destruction. From this plague onward, Goshen – a foreshadowing of faithful believers in Christ – was no longer directly affected.

We’ve seen precursors of genetically modified flies/mosquito’s being released into the wild under false pretenses.

Plague 5 | Livestock killed

Disease killed all the livestock of Egypt at an appointed morning while that of the Israelites remained untouched (Ex 9:1-7). As the plagues kept coming, their severity kept increasing and their target remained pinpointed, it became ever more clear that they were not mere tricks but divinely instigated acts of judgment against Egypt, humiliation of their false gods and to affect their means of provision and wealth. The pantheistic Egyptians revered all animals but birds and livestock more than fish and amphibians. For them to loose their livestock would constitute a serious loss indeed; for this to happen while the Israelites retained all theirs, represented a nationwide humiliation, affecting their sense of pride, presumed independence from God and false sense of self-accomplishment.

This plague could have a more literal application regarding the livestock (pets) of unbelievers and foolish virgins. We may discern livestock will die (or be killed) because of ‘pandemics’ or disease outbreaks’, but also incrementally, for instance due to fertilizer or nutrition becoming too expensive or outlawed (under climate change regulations), and/or crops being ruined by weather extremes causing feeding or keeping livestock to become too expensive. We’ve seen precursors of this dynamic already, as well as episodes of mass animal deaths.

A (complementary) broader application would be that the means of provision, status and income (property, assets and wealth distribution platforms such as financial & trade systems) of those still fully or partially dependent upon the world‘s control grid, would be compromised or cease to function to seriously affect people’s livelihood and sustenance (in contrast with relative stability and abundance of faithful believers).

Plague 6 | Boils

Boils and sores infected the Egyptians and their animals (Ex 9:8-12)

Ryken: To understand how completely God humiliated Pharaoh’s magicians, it helps to know that by throwing ashes into the air, Moses was doing something that Egyptian priests often did. It was customary for Pharaoh’s priests to take sacrificial ashes and cast them into the air as a sign of blessing. But God took that ritual act and turned it into a curse. This was a matter of justice, because the soot may well have come from a furnace for making bricks, like the bricks the Israelites baked for Pharaoh. If so, God was exacting strict justice, repaying the Egyptians for their sins. John Currid writes, “The type of furnace spoken of here was probably a kiln for burning bricks. The furnace, then, was a symbol of the oppression of the Hebrews, the sweat and tears they were shedding to make bricks for the Egyptians. Thus the very soot made by the enslaved people was now to inflict punishment on their oppressors.” God was making Israel’s curse a blessing and was turning Egypt’s blessing into a curse.”

People’s sin and idolatry were externalized as the boils and sores, thus becoming known and also visible to others (Matthew 15:19). In Deuteronomy 28:27 we are warned that this judgment can befall believers as well, if they do not heed and obey God: 27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods (hemorrhoids), and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.

In our time, many people’s compromised spiritual defenses and weakened natural immune systems (especially, if undermined and harmed by the CV19 injections containing multiple pathogens, cancerous substances, remotely manipulable graphene nano-structures, non-human genetics and DNA damaging components), coupled with weaponized electromagnetic radiation, in the context of general contaminated air, water, and food supplies, will likely play a role (ref. of this plague are found in Luke 21:11, Matthew 24:7, Psalm 91:3-6. If you have willfully taken this poisonous injection as an individual, church or family, REPENT and the Lord will cleanse you of it.

False teachers, diviners and deceivers are expected to be struck with this plague as well, to beckon them to repentance and alert their audience (2 Tim 3:8-9, Acts 13:10-11, Isaiah 28:7).

Plague 7 | Hail and fire

Hail and fire from heaven destroyed all servants and animals in the field, as well as the remaining crops and vegetation. Those who feared the Lord took the people and animals inside their homes and were safeguarded (Ex 9:13-35).

The original 7th plague must have taken place between the end of January and mid-February.

We can discern this because flax was budding and barley was ‘in the ear. The flax is “bolled”—i.e., forms its seed-vessel—towards the end of January or beginning of February, and the barley comes into ear about the same time. These facts fix the date of this plague, and help to pinpoint the dates both of the earlier and the later ones as well.

These plants’ tangible sign of fruitfulness is reminiscent of Jesus’ instructions to his overcomers in the letters to the seven churches, to prayerfully watch and hear what the Spirit is saying: “he that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” in Revelation 2:7.

In the second Exodus, fire, hail and burning coals are expected to be cast down from heaven, as cosmic judgment is prophesied to fall upon spiritual Babylon (starting withe U, the daughter of Babylon), as was appointed to Sodom and Gomorrah in their days. The burning coals and hail are stored up in heaven for this day (Luke 21:25-36, Job 38:22-23) Revelation 8:5-8 mentions lighting, hail mingled with blood and fire being cast down from heaven. Weighty hailstones are also mentioned in Revelation 16:21.

Plague 8 | Locusts

Swarms of locusts covered the land (Ex 10:1-20). Swarms of natural locusts can be devastating (Judges 6:5 and 7:12, Ecclesiastes 12:5) and supernatural ones even more so. In response to this plague, Pharaoh presumed he was in a position to negotiate with God and wanted the children to stay (as hostages) while the adults were permitted to leave for three days. This presumption proved to be inaccurate.

According to rabbinical sources, this plague took place on 1 Shevat. The tenth plague occurred at Passover (Nisan 14). The timespan of subsequent plagues, with intervals in between, and severity of the plagues being built up over time gave the Egyptians and disobedient Israelites more than enough time to repent and learn to walk in acknowledgment, faith, and obedience to the Lord.

In the Bible locust swarms are used to describe anything that quickly invades and devastates an area (see Jud. 6:5; 7:12; Isa. 33:4; Jer. 46:23; 51:14, 27). In a similar vein, they are likened to an invading army (see Joel 1-2, Amos 7:1-3). In this second Exodus fulfillment locusts and demonic entities are expected to be released from above and below (Revelation 9:3 and 12:9, Joel 1:2-4, Joel 2). This could be the onset of darkness falling and demonic presence thickening.

Ecclesiastes 12 1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain: 3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, 4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low; 5 Also [when] they shall be afraid of [that which is] high, and fears [shall be] in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets …

Plague 9 | Three days of darkness

Thick darkness covered Egypt for three days (Ex 10:21-29).

The coming three days of spiritual and physical darkness are patterned after the three days of darkness in the Exodus, in the lives of Jonah, of Jesus, of Lazarus, and of Paul. Scripture speaks of the (three days of) darkness in Matthew 24:29-30, Isaiah 13:9-11, Job 5:14, 12:25 and 18:5-6, Jeremiah 4:23-29, John 9:24, Psalm 78:51, 91:6 and 136:10, Amos 8:9-10, Revelation 6:12, Revelation 8:12, and in Revelation 9:1-3. In the latter part of end times tribulation, the kingdom of the beast will be plunged into darkness also (Revelation 16:10-11).

It is wise to anoint your home prayerfully, prepare yourself spiritually, educate and exercise yourself in repentance and warfare prayers and ensure your household’s physical and medical emergency preparedness well before this plague falls Now is the time to seek the Lord and get your spiritual and physical house in order! At the end of this page, you will find resources to help you prepare and inform and warn others.

The three days of darkness will be preceded by visible signs in the heavens, namely by red and lowering skies (Matthew 16:2-4, Ezekiel 1:4) coupled with radiant colors or northern lights and aurora like phenomena. These will be visible 2 to 48 hours before the thick spiritual and physical darkness falls, which will be at noontime (Amos 8:9, Job 5:14). You and your household (and those you may invite) have to be indoors beforehand!

This sudden darkness is likely caused by inbound planetary bodies – referred to as ‘the destroyer’ and ‘the spoiler‘ in the Bible – that will block the Sun, as we’ve sighted and analyzed prior. These inbound planets cause auroral-type phenomena due to energy-release upon near approach and ionization of the upper atmosphere. Coupled with the ejection of dust and debris into the upper atmosphere, the light of the sun and the stars will be scattered. Earthquakes are expected to precede the three days of darkness as well (Revelation 6:12-13). Mountain displacing tectonic upheaval and ‘pouring heavens’ (hail, fire, meteor showers) are parallelled in Judges 5:4-5, concerning Joshua’s days.

Go home and gather your household as soon as you witness these signs!

If you see these red skies and aurora type lights and you are on your way to work, or school, CANCEL that plan immediately, go home, gather your household and others you seek to shelter within your home and begin to prepare. Warn others who will mostly not be aware, sidetracked, or deceived, perhaps they’re busy taking photos and posting on social media or listening to the mainstream media. As you tell others of this coming event, let REPENTANCE be a strong part of your message to them as the Lord requires all to repent and wholeheartedly turn to him (Joel 2:12-18) . There is now no time to waste before you see darkness begin to fall when it’s not supposed to. You have to be indoors, preferably at home, then (courtesy: Abby K).

The tangible darkness, when the Sun’s light is dimmed completely, is prophesied to fall at noontime and there will likely be a worldwide power outage. This darkness will be unnatural and tangible, it will be oppressive and heavy. You will not be able to see more than an inch or two from your face even with light from candles, oil lamps and such. Scripture references are found in Amos 8:5-9, Amos 5:18, Joel 2:2-11 and 28-32, Acts 2:20-21, Revelation 6:9-17, Isaiah 13:9-11, Matthew 24:9-11.

The Lord’s bride and wise virgins will have (supernatural) light in their dwellings by the measure of their faith, love, and obedience (Isaiah 60:1-2, Philippians 2:15, 1 John 3:1-2, Proverbs 4:18, Matthew 13:43). This means the overcomers will have their usual power sources (electricity for most) in their homes (Psalm 139:12), while the lukewarm will have less bright light sources to their disposal (candles, oil lamps) showing the need for repentance and full surrender to the Lord.

To determine the time during the three days of darkness (which lasts 72 full hours from the noontime onset of darkness), you will need a windup clock, as electronic or battery-operated clocks will likely not work during this time.

Get indoors before darkness falls and lock your access ways!

We are called to stay indoors with our doors and windows locked (all other access ways need to be closed as well, like fireplace flues, pet doors)’until the indignation overpasses’. If you are caught in your vehicle or elsewhere indoors by the time darkness falls, stay inside for the full 72 hours and don’t open any doors or windows. You’re safe as long as you don’t give in to fear. Put on your Ephesians 6 armor and pray spiritual warfare prayers.

Pray to be found worthy to escape the coming judgments and stand in the gap for one another, but also to be part of the greatest army this world has ever seen that will bring in the greatest harvest of souls of all times. We are instructed to stay indoors, and keep our windows and doors locked, as there will be demonic entities outside seeking to deceive, harm, and devour. To protect fearful family members (children, feeble minded) from the sight of demons outside, cover your windows and other light penetrating surfaces. Do not unlock and open your doors or windows under ANY circumstances. Many people (the unsaved, lukewarm, who have compromise in their walk) will hear voices, screams, shouts, curses and such. They may hear what appears to be the voices of loved ones. Tell them to not believe these deceptive or beguiling voices who will beg people to let them in. Understand, that no human is able to see or move in this darkness. Only demonic entities, fallen ones and the Lord’s angels will be able to see and move about during these three days. Demonic entities can however pose as your loved ones (these are known as familiar spirits) to seek entry (Joel 2:9, Jasher 80:21). Give them no heed and keep everything locked. The Lord’s angels will protect believers’ homes from forced entry or any other harm. Pray to the Lord for calmness and peace. It will be granted to all who pray to him. Courtesy: Lynn Johnson.

This supernatural danger will likely be coupled with natural upheaval, such as earthquakes and thunderstorms, as well as social chaos, especially in urban environments. Remain in prayer, focus your heart and mind on the Lord, and comfort and support your family members. If there are wayward or unsaved adult family members in your household, we are given the opportunity to lead them to salvation, as this is likely their final opportunity to be taken in the first, bridal rapture (Acts 2:20-21, Luke 21:36-37). From different servants with prophetic gifts, I discern that during these three days, the Lord will personally visit each and everyone who does not yet know him as Lord and Savior, giving each of them a chance to come to know and accept him.

These are perilous times with high stakes. Millions will die – even a third of the earth’s population – as judgment falls (Revelation 9:15-18. If unsaved adults die during this time of darkness, they will stay in this outer darkness (Job 18:5-6, Matthew 8:12 and 22:13 , II Peter 2:17).

For your consideration: a prophetic word from sister Celestial from The Master’s Voice and one from Vicky Goforth Parnell on the topic of the three days of darkness (plus the transcript of Vicky’s video) for your consideration.

Timing

We have a marker in Scripture pertaining to the bride’s adornment and glorification in late winter: the imagery of the almond trees blossoming which lasts for two weeks. It is marked on Tu B’Shevat, the New Year for the Trees, expected on February 6-7, depending on the upcoming new Moon sighting. The blossoming of almond trees is seen as a metaphor for resurrection, resurgence, restoration and bridal adornment. The almond tree – the watchful tree – is the first tree to resurrect from winter dormancy and blossom when all other trees still sleep and slumber, a symbol of new beginnings, and of God’s promise of redemption, reflecting the bride shining forth in splendor and the fields turning white, alerting us to look up for our redemption draws near (Ecclesiastes 12:5, Isaiah 52:1, Luke 12:37, Song of Solomon 2:10-14, Revelation 19:7-8, Ephesians 5:25:27, Romans 8:19, Isaiah 40:31, Isaiah 42:6-9, Deuteronomy 20:19). Jesus is the Menorah, the Light of the World, who died and rose again, manifest in nature in the blossoming of the almond tree after winter dormancy, signifying the bride arrayed in splendor:

1 Corinthians 15:20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

The instant blossoming of Aaron’s almond rod affirmed his appointment into priesthood as his rod was imbued with new life and purpose after being placed under the authority of the Lord (Numbers 17:2, Jeremiah 1:11-12 and 17-18). This beautiful sign could also foreshadow the glorification and fortification of the bride in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye (1 Cor 15:52) as the Lord exalts his beloved bride and arrays her in splendor amidst darkness (Psalm 45:12-17, Isaiah 61:10, Revelation 19:7, Ephesians 5:25-27, Philippians 3:21). This picture of blossoming and being dressed in white aligns with the wise virgins having oil in their lamps – as almond oil was used for the Temple Menorah – and them being watchful even in the dormant winter season, while wearing spotless garments and star-like adornments (reflecting the fruitfulness of the Spirit), the flowers themselves being crowned, as they await the coming of their king (Mark 13:37).

Ecclesiastes 12 1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain: 3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened, 4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low; 5 Also [when] they shall be afraid of [that which is] high, and fears [shall be] in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets …

Song of Solomon 2:8 The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.9 My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice. 10 My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. 11 For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; 12 The flowers (almond blossoms) appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

We have another marker in Scripture of three days of death and darkness (mourning) in the (delayed) raising of Lazarus, positioned on the calendar after the feast of dedication and before Passover, the timeframe of my expectation.

The time marker for the original three days of darkness in the Exodus is noted right before Passover. From the patterns in the days of Noah and Jesus, we discern that days 10-17 are known bookends of final trials before deliverance.

Plague 10 | Death of the firstborn

The Egyptian firstborn, both of the unsaved and disobedient people (including Pharaoh) and their animals, were destroyed by God’s death angel. Only the Israelites who remained indoors and had the Passover lamb’s blood on their doorpost (a foreshadowing of applying Christ’s blood atonement) were exempt from this plague. The Lord struck the firstborn at about midnight, when a loud cry was heard (Exodus 11:1-12:30, Job 34:19-20). In obedience to the word of Moses the Israelites asked the Egyptians for golden and silver valuables. The Lord ensured they receive them (Exodus 12:35, ref. in Proverbs 13:22b and Job 27:16-17).

The event of the death of the firstborn is marked on Passover. The deliverance and departure of the Israelites was took place right afterward (the 15th of the first month). They crossed the Red Sea on the 21st-22nd of the first month.

I understand this plague could have a threefold fulfillment:

  • First, in this prophetic word, given through Vicky Goforth Parnell, the Lord shares he will once again take the lives of the firstborn of the people and their animals with whom he is not in covenant relationship, who have not applied the blood atonement of the Firstborn of the Father, the wayward and the lost. The prophetic word can be read in full, here. It is referenced in Scripture as ‘Rachel weeping for the loss of her children’ per Jeremiah 31:15, Matthew 2:18, Jeremiah 50:45, Hosea 4:6, Hosea 5:9-15). As Rachel wept over Joseph’s disappearance and presumed her only son had died, the mothers who lost their children at the time of Herod’s slaughter near Ramah where Rachel was buried lamented and wailed deeply over their loss. The time of tribulation is described as a time of mourning over one’s only son, meaning prolonged and enduring lamentation, so this verse implies the start of tribulation or ‘the great and terrible day of the Lord’. The current day ‘wise virgins’ living Godly lives and the first-born offspring in their seed line (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren) are exempt from this plague (Isaiah 35:10, Deuteronomy 7:9). These wise virgins have applied the blood atonement to their lives and walk in love, faith, and obedience to the best of their ability.
  • Second, the US, the spiritual daughter of Babylon, also referred to as the tribe of Ephraim (part of Rachel’s seed line), is considered a spiritual firstborn among the nations (Jeremiah 31:9). From being richly blessed and privileged upon its foundation the nation has degenerated into a condition of idolatry and reprobation and is ripe for judgment, akin to Sodom and Gomorrah in their days (Jeremiah 51:42, John 8:7). Judgment begins in the house of the Lord and its onset is executed by the Lord himself (John 8:7). The harlot nation of the US is prophesied to be destroyed in one hour, like the cosmic judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah, followed by nuclear attacks (Zechariah 5:1-11, Zechariah 14:12, Jeremiah 50-51), civil war, and foreign invasion from the north (ref. in Jeremiah 50-51, Ezekiel 22-24, Zechariah 5:1-11, Revelation 6:12-14, Revelation 18, John 8:7, Isaiah 28:1-7, Ezekiel 16:35-42, Jeremiah 1:13-16 and Deuteronomy 28:49-57). Other nations will follow (Psalm 9:17). To consider, a prophetic word by Vicky Goforth Parnell on the innocence lost and obituary of the US.
  • Third, the slaughter of the firstborn, in their multiple fulfillments, could also reflect both the preparation of the world as an altar of sacrifice as well as a final warning call – a true midnight cry and deep wailing for those affected – to the wayward and lost that tribulation judgment is about to begin in full earnest and their window to repent, turn and ready themselves to be taken is swiftly closing. For soon, the Lord will take all the faithful overcomers, the children and the innocent of mind away from the earth to their heavenly home, all who have sought refuge in Christ and all who are safe in him, at which time lamenting will be even more widespread (Matthew 2:18, Jeremiah 31:15). After the dead in Christ rise first, these are the first-fruits that remain who will be caught up (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, Ezekiel 37:1-4). This event is explained in more detail below.

The rapture

Updated 1/22/’23

I describe the rapture of the innocent in more detail in this article from my Dutch website (a translation widget is provided). It also covers the upper age limit of childhood and exceptions.

The wise overcomers and the innocent in Christ (children and innocent minded, who cannot make a decision for Christ) are expected to be taken to heaven before cosmic judgment and sudden destruction fall, as the wise are ‘accounted worthy to escape all things’ coming upon the earth and the innocent are considered ‘safe in Christ’. This departure to heaven is also known as the first harvest or rapture (Luke 12:37-48, Revelation 3:12, Luke 21:36-37, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

To uninformed lukewarm believers and the unsaved, the Lord’s coming to take his faithful followers and especially the innocent worldwide to heaven to safeguard them from subsequent judgments, will likely be perceived as ‘theft’ and “judgment” initially, as they will experience the instant disappearance and deeply felt loss of their loved ones this side of heaven. The Lord will beckon and encourage all who are bereft to repent of their sins, wholeheartedly turn back to him and develop enduring faith. He assures them by the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit that their loved ones are perfectly safe with him, lovingly cared for and await the reunification with their family members who turn to the Lord and endure in faith. As such, the removal of children is only a temporary judgment due to the unbelief and/or spiritual unfaithfulness of those affected. If they repent of their sins, turn back to the Lord, endure in faith and trust him fully, this temporary judgment will not have eternal consequences.

The spiritual enemy and those who do their bidding are aware of this event and will offer alternative explanations of the sudden disappearance of millions of children and the Lord’s faithful worldwide, such as ‘aliens’ from other-dimensional civilizations or other ”supernatural intelligent beings’ having taken them elsewhere. Either due to ignorance or to purposefully deceive people, governments, religious leaders and so-called ‘experts’ will most likely present inaccurate and deceitful explanations as well, in line with the enemy’s predictive programming and great deceptions regarding the earth’s cosmology and demonic entities presented as ‘aliens’. The Bible forewarns us about this delusion and deception in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-17.

The thief comes amidst darkness

The context of spiritual and physical darkness when thieves generally operate and the lukewarm neither being aware or ready regarding the Lord’s hour of visitation, align with the 9th plague of the three days of darkness and subsequent 10th plague of the death and loss of the firstborn.

Hosea 9:11 As for Ephraim (the US), their glory shall fly away (faithful believers) like a bird, from the birth, and from the womb, and from the conception. 12 Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, (rapture of the innocent) that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them! 13 Ephraim, as I saw Tyrus, is planted in a pleasant place: but Ephraim shall bring forth his children to the murderer. 14 Give them, O Lord: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts (the unborn will raptured as well).

Matthew 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come (taking of the bride and innocent), he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

Matthew 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Only the wise have light in their dwelling and spiritual oil in their lamps. They have prophetic revelation and understanding of the appointed time of the Lord’s coming.

2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we (overcomers in Christ, watching prayerfully) which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. (the wise are informed and instructed) 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord (the onset of tribulation judgment, the wrath of the Lamb) so cometh as a thief in the night (the High Priest would return to find his servant either awake or asleep at the helm with the altar fire either burning or left unattended, and in ancient Hebrew the thief refers to the time the bridegroom would come for his bride). 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety (after the judgment of the US worldwide claims of peace will expectedly follow); then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they (the lukewarm, hard hearted and unsaved by that time) shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day (the day of sudden destruction) should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness (the wise are aware and ready for the appointed times and will have light in their dwellings). 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath (from either the Lamb or the Father), but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, (the wise overcomers and innocent in Christ will be taken) 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

The unsaved and lukewarm should heed Jesus’ warning: “Be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him” (Matthew 24:44). How can you be ready? God has provided the way for you to escape the judgment. That way is Jesus Christ (John 14:6). By accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you are granted forgiveness of sins, mercy, and salvation with the promise of everlasting life (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8–9). We apply the blood atonement of the Lord on our hearts and ready ourselves spiritually for his coming, by walking by the Spirit and the Word daily in love, faith and obedience to the best of our ability.

Those who are considered as either lukewarm or wicked servants by the Lord upon his return (Matthew 18:32, 24:48-51, 25:26, and Proverbs 29:12) will be left behind, to endure a time of severe discipline and judgment along with unbelievers to develop overcoming faith then (Romans 11:17-22, Revelation 3:16, Luke 21:36-37, Jeremiah 11:7-12, Hebrews 12:6-7). They are assured of the Lord’s love and mercy as they learn to trust and obey him fully amidst persecution and tribulation (Luke 12:46-47, Matthew 24:48-51, Matthew 25:11-12). They will need to maintain a living testimony of Christ until the end of their lives and not take the mark of the beast to enter into heaven, as explained in more detail here.

Exodus 13 | Dedication of the remnant firstborn

In Exodus 13, after the people’s departure and instructions about Passover and Unleavened Bread, the firstborn of the Israelites were dedicated:

1And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, [both] of man and of beast: it [is] mine (ref in Deuteronomy 15:19).

The bride of Christ (and the subset of the Revelation 14:1-5 immortal witnesses 144.000) are considered the first fruits of the end times harvest, the firstborn sons and daughters of God, with the attributes of the Church of Philadelphia en Smyrna, continually growing in his likeness, and as possessing all the privileges of eldest sons, including the kingdom and the priesthood, also referred to as the “church of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven” (Heb 12:23). This concept of firstborn aligns with the word ‘teknon’ in Revelation 12:5b, that can refer to both male and female children.

These Revelation 14 immortal witnesses (‘spiritual virgins, not tainted with false doctrine or idolatry) are also referred to as the ‘ten thousands of holy ones’ and the ‘ten thousands of Ephraim’ in Deuteronomy 33, as the ‘first-born of God’ in Jeremiah 31:9, as the ‘mighty warriors of Ephraim’ in Zechariah 10:7 and as ‘the helmet of God’ in Psalm 60 (courtesy: Tim Foster).

Timing of the Exodus 2.0 plagues

Timing wise, we are approaching the Exodus plague markers of the growth stages of flax and barley at the end of winter, leading to the Passover culmination of the original plagues. The visual and experiential clues of the initial plagues (water as blood, frogs, lice, boils etc.) that will precede the heavenly displays of red skies and northern lights phenomena, 2 to 48 hours before darkness falls at noon, are key to watch out for.

Scripture cues us in as well. Hosea 5:5-7 points to a new Moon onset of judgment falling upon the US (Ephraim, spiritual daughter of Babylon) and the rulers of Jerusalem (Judah) after treacherous dealings and removal of spiritual, legal, and territorial boundary stones, such as we will no doubt see affirmed in the upcoming elite gatherings – and perhaps final preparation meetings – of the WEF and NATO next week and the subsequent Abraham Accord Games in Israel (courtesy: Tammy’s Notes).

The enemy is aware also. This month, January 22nd also stands out as the reminder of the annual Janus Feast Day (highest Roman deity and antichrist type) and the US Roe v Wade abortion ruling from 1973, causing the nation’s waters to be turned into blood on a large scale and crying out for vengeance unto the Lord, which he alone will repay (Deuteronomy 32:35, Revelation 6:9-11). The nation’s harlot stronghold and ‘blood city’ New York (Ezekiel 22:2) is expected to be judged first.

We are also nearing the four-month marker on the calendar after the woman accused of harlotry was brought before the Lord in judgment, namely on Tishri 22 (Shemini Atzeret) in the seventh month, that aligns with the four-month harvest marker John 4:35 and the fields indeed being white in Shevat, with the almond blossoms covering of the bridal watchful trees. The 22nd and 23rd of Shevat expectedly align with the Roman Feast of Lupercalia (depending on the new Moon sighting), a feast a ritual blood sacrifice. From Isaiah 28 we can derive Ephraim will be judged as a hasty fruit – a type of first-fruits, like the first almond crop or soft drupes – harvested before summer.

Hosea 5 And the pride of Israel doth testify to his face: therefore shall Israel and Ephraim fall in their iniquity; Judah also shall fall with them. 6 They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find [him]; he hath withdrawn himself from them.7 They have dealt treacherously against the LORD: for they have begotten strange children: now shall a month devour them with their portions.8 Blow ye the cornet in Gibeah, [and] the trumpet in Ramah: cry aloud [at] Bethaven, after thee, O Benjamin.9 Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be. 10 The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: [therefore] I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.

John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Isaiah 28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! 2 Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand. 3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet: 4 And the glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the summer (presumed to be the first crop of soft almonds); which when he that looketh upon it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up. 5 In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people 6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

Ezekiel 22:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2 Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations. 3 Then say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD, The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself. 4 Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries. 5 Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock thee, which art infamous and much vexed.

Beast from the sea

There is a possibility that the ‘beast from the sea’ (expectedly Obama) will be slain right after the three days of darkness, as referenced in Isaiah 26:20 – 27:1 and Revelation 12:3.

Isaiah 26:17 Like as a woman with child, [that] draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, [and] crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD. 18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen. 19 Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. 20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. Isaiah 27:1 1In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that [is] in the sea (Hydra, sea dragon or sea serpent, which covers a third of the heavens, see p. 24, and is tied with the Revelation 12:3-5 great red dragon, Draco).

As a sign of Jonah

To the adulterous and wicked generation (the unrepentant and foolish, but also to wicked and evil servants) the revisitation of the plagues will serve as a ‘sign of Jonah’ as well, a final warning call to repent, turn back to the Lord and surrender in love, faith and obedience before destruction falls in all earnest (Matthew 16:4, Matthew 24-25). Those who come to faith within this timeframe will likely have to endure by faith for 40 more days, patterned after Jonah’s timeframe of destruction and Jesus’ time of testing in the wilderness right after his baptism, commemorated on Epiphany.

Matthew 16:1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 3A nd in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

Our refuge by faith

Exodus 12:13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.

Psalm 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, [He is] my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, [and] from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth [shall be thy] shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; [nor] for the arrow [that] flieth by day; 6 [Nor] for the pestilence [that] walketh in darkness; [nor] for the destruction [that] wasteth at noonday. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; [but] it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, [which is] my refuge, [even] the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in [their] hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I [will be] with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Are you saved?

If you do not know the Lord Jesus personally yet and want to be certain you will go to heaven and assured that you and your household will be safeguarded during the coming plagues, then these basic steps will lead you to salvation in the Lord Jesus:

  • A | admit you are a sinner in need of salvation and ask the Lord Jesus for forgiveness,
  • B | believe the Lord Jesus died for you on the cross and rose again on the third day, and
  • C | call upon his name to be your Lord and Savior.

Another sample prayer of salvation and to be filled with his Holy Spirit:

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for my sins. I believe He died, was buried, and on the third day rose again from the dead. I do repent of my sins and come to You for mercy and forgiveness. I renounce Satan and the kingdom of darkness. By faith in Your promise, I receive Jesus Christ personally as my Savior and confess Him as my Lord. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and give me eternal life and make me a child of God. Thank you, Lord, for accepting me. Lord Jesus, I am thirsty for more of You. I ask You, Lord Jesus, to fill me with Your Holy Spirit. By faith, I receive Your Holy Spirit now. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

10 thoughts on “Exodus 2.0 is upon us | Repent, trust, and obey

  1. Hello Sabine,

    The plagues pattern is already happening;
    Jasher 80: 19-..

    19 And when the Egyptians hid themselves on account of the swarm of animals, they locked their doors after them, and God ordered the Sulanuth (Kraken?) which was in the sea, to come up and go into Egypt.
    20 And she had long arms, ten cubits in length of the cubit of a man.
    21 And she went upon the roofs and uncovered the raftering and flooring and cut them, and stretched forth her arm into the house and removed the lock and the bolt, and opened the houses of Egypt.

    So.. covid’s XBB.1.5 ‘Kraken’ Variant is among the most prevalent subvariants in the U.S. (Egypt)

    Thank you,
    David

  3. “almond oil was used for the Temple Menorah” This is not true,
    Exo 25:6 T4T olive oil to burn in the lamps, spices to put in the olive oil for anointing the priests and in the sweet-smelling incense,

    1. Dear brother/sister, that is a commonly held position indeed. Thank you for alerting me.

      As I was led to research the topic, I came to understand that the Temple Menorah – which represents the almond tree – was lit with almond oil and the other lamps with olive oil.

      My understanding regarding the personhood of the Holy Spirit differs from this author btw.

      I have integrated the insight of an almond oil-lit menorah into this past article in which the priestly libation of the altar (with almond oil) is also covered, as led.

      I will study the topic some more and will put an update in the end notes.

      Many blessings,
      Sabine
