Great Valley Through The Mount Of Olives

A Great Valley

[3] For, behold, the Lord cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth. [4] And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place. Micah 1:3-4

These verses of Micah figuratively picture melting topography and spreading valleys beneath the feet of the lord. The word used for “cleft” is “baqa,” which is the same word used for “cleave” in Zechariah 14:4 to describe the formation of a very great valley through the Mount of Olives at the end of the Tribulation Period. It means “to break, rend, rip up, make a breach, separate, split, cut out, break through or into, or to divide.” The same God who inspired this Scripture has, for a very long time, been bringing molten rock upward through a crack in the crust of southeastern Africa. And, as this molten rock has cooled to form new crust, it has caused the crack to spread apart into a very great valley, a valley that is cleaving apart “as wax before the fire.” This great rift valley is shown in Figure 25 (Click on “Figures” at the top of this Birth Pang). The same God who is spreading apart the Red Sea floor is also slowly spreading apart southeastern Africa at the same time.

Please note the great African Rift Valley in Figure 30. At times, God works very slowly, as He has to create this great valley. However, Peter informs us that “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” The same God who has formed the great African Rift Valley of Figure 30 over a long period of time can, abruptly and without warning, create such a valley in less than a day. This is how a somewhat smaller, but similar, valley will be generated suddenly through the Mount of Olives in less than an hour.

Of particular interest in Figure 30 is the location of the Afar Triangle at the juncture of three rift valleys: the Red Sea, Aden, and African rift cracks in the earth’s crust. This juncture is called a “triple point” in geological jargon. These three large pieces of the earth’s crust (Identified as the African, Arabian, and Somalian Plates in Figure 30) are slowly spreading apart from one another and, in the wake of their movement, are leaving behind a sinking depression in the crust of the earth, a depression identified as the Afar Triangle or Depression. The Afar Depression has not always existed. At one time it was merely a structural weakness in the crust of the earth where converging intersections of faults were made at angles which approached the perpendicular. But a tremendous shaking and upheaval in the earth’s crust at these intersections caused the formation of an active triple point depression at their juncture, and the spreading, particularly northward toward Israel, has been the most active on the Red Sea floor. The geological history of this rift structure, in chronological sequence, is as follows: (1) First the Gulf of Aden begin to rip apart, (2) Then the African Rift began to spread, (3) Then the Red Sea Floor began to actively spread, (4) Then the Gulf of Suez torn apart from the Sinai, and finally, (5) The Gulf of Aqabah (Eilat) torn away from the Arabian Plate. The next section that will rip apart is the land of Israel from Eilat to the intersection of the Plain of Jezreel with the Jordan River Valley, a distance of some 1600 furlongs (185 miles). For a full exposition of this ripping of the Jordan River Valley go back to Birth Pang Numbers 15 and 16, along with all their associated Figures.

At the present time there exists a pattern of normal faults in the Jerusalem area similar to those that led to the initial formation of the Afar Depression. I believe that, when God rips open the Arabah fault northward for 185 miles, the associated shaking and upheaval in the earth’s crust will produce a small Afar like depression on the eastern lee of the Mount of Olives. For want of a better name, I will refer to it as the Zechariah Triangle or Depression. Lord willing, Birth Pang Number 20, Chapter 22, will be devoted to a description of this future depression and its relationship to the cleaving of the Mount of Olives.

[3] Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. [4] And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. [5] And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. Zechariah 14:3-5.

A Great Valley

In Chapter 21 we observed how God slowly formed a great valley over a very long period of time. In this Chapter we shall observe how God forms another great valley in a very short period of time.

[4] And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. [5] And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee. Zechariah 14:4-5

The word used for “cleave” is “baqa,” which means to break, rend, rip up, make a breach, separate, split, cut out, break through or into, or to divide. A valley itself is often referred to as a cleft (baqa), such as the Beqa Valley in Lebanon. The context of these verses leaves little doubt that the Lord intends to form a great cleavage valley in the “midst” of the Mount of Olives. It is also quite clear, from the linguistics of verse four, that it will not merely be a narrow ravine, but rather “a very great valley.” It will be sufficiently wide for multitudes of Jews to flee through it. The Hebrew word used for “midst” in verse four, in this particular context, means “to divide, to reach to the midst.” This word does not have to mean dead center or exactly half way, as the following Scriptures, where it is used, attest:

[24] I said, O my God, take me not away in the MIDST of my days: thy years are throughout all generations. Psalm 102:24

[11] As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the MIDST of his days, and at his end shall be a fool. Jeremiah 17:11

The Bible indicates a normal lifespan of seventy years for a human. You can see, from the preceding Scriptures, that if a man were to die between thirty and forty, he would have left the land of the living in the MIDST of his days. The word used for “midst” does not require that the Mount of Olives cleave precisely in the center. The Scripture merely indicates that a division will be effected in the middle section of the mountain.

May I now direct your attention to Figure 31. The two dashed black lines (oriented west to east and labeled “X” and “Y”) indicate normal faults in the upper crust of the earth. As you can see, they pass north and south of Jerusalem on a converging track toward the Mount of Olives. These normal faults are not there by accident. I am persuaded they have been created there by God and, at His command, will collapse to fulfill Zechariah’s prophecy. Please note that fault X intersects the northern flank of the Mount of Olives, while fault Y passes through its southern end. That section of the Mount of Olives between X and Y is the MIDST of the mountain, and is the section that will collapse and sink downward when God issues His command. These two normal faults pass through the Mount of Olives, and then make contact with a series of north to south faults that exist along the eastern lee of the mountain. In this zone, where the intersection of east-west & north-south faults occurs, a structural weakness like the Afar Depression will be generated in the earth’s crust when violent earthquakes are occurring in the Jordan River Valley (See Birth Pang 19, Chapter 21 and associated Figures). The center of this geological weakness zone is on the eastern side of the mountain, approximately four thousand cubits (six thousand feet) directly east of the Jerusalem Eastern Gate.

The old city of Jerusalem sets atop Cenomanian and Turonian limestone, a rock strata that will safely support the largest structures. One might naturally suppose, that just across the narrow Kidron Valley, you would find the Mount of Olives composed of a duplicate rock strata. However, its slope betrays its actual geological composition, for it is made of Cenomanian chalk – the same type of chalk that crumbles into a thousand pieces when it falls from a blackboard railing. I believe God deliberately formed it of chalk. When its northern and southern ends divide from its middle section, the entire middle section will sink downward and crumble into billions of pieces of chalk. This geological transformational process is shown in Parts A and B of Figure 32. Such a downward slippage process has been used many times in the past by God to form large fault block valleys around the globe.

When the critical force, holding the Arabah Fault together, is finally exceeded by the force spreading apart the Red Sea, (See Figure 25), then the Arabah fault will suddenly rip open from the Gulf of Aqaba northward for about 185 miles. The resultant fantastic earthquakes produced in Israel will cause: (1) A new triple point depression to be formed with a center about four thousand cubits east of the Eastern Gate of the old city of Jerusalem, (2) Everything between points X and Y on Figure 32 to sink downward and crumble, (3) The remaining northern half of the Mount of Olives (the section north of point X) to move northward on a newly created Gaza Plate, (4) The remaining southern half of the Mount of Olives (the section south of point Y) to move southward on the newly created Sinai Plate, and (5) the Jericho Valley to rip open southwestward from the Jordan River to the new triple point depression I call Zechariah’s Triangle. Figure 32 (looking eastward from the old city of Jerusalem) illustrates the horizontal sequence of events as they affect the Mount of Olives before and after the cleavage. Figure 33 portrays the overall local area action as if you were viewing it from a point about three miles above the ground thirty miles west of Jerusalem. The spring and river system shown in Figure 33 will be discussed in future chapters. Figure 34 shows the effect.

The Extinction Cycle a.k.a. the Biblical Great Tribulation Period

*****

The following information is generally being placed on the bottom of some of the pages in which are being renamed and reworked. The goal is to help any visitor to better understand the overall theme of the End Times Biblical Teaching of the Great Tribulation Period, etc. It is not to overwhelm the page or the viewer, but to capture your attention, as some viewers only visit one page or many just a few and then move on, never to return again. Maybe with this material, you will understand how, then the why of the method. This page was created on May 9th, 2022.

*****

When the coming Extinction Cycle a.k.a the Biblical Great Tribulation Period actually begins with the Great Earthquakes; Massive Volcanic Eruptions; Tsunamis on a Global scale; a Comet hits the earth; the Magnetic Field weakens and allows Comic Lightening to strike the earth; and all the World Governmental, Corporate Business and Mainstream Religious Leaders, including all of the so called powers-that-be fail to provide Truthful answers; how are the almost 8 billion masses of humanity going to feel, when their lives are about to vanish away?

*****

It is going to be so amazing when these events begin to unfold and the people who present themselves as Leaders of People, (great and powerful), become nothing but mere frighten helpless creatures of earthen clay.

*****

My goal is to provide Biblical, Astronomical, Geological and Meteorological; as well as Middle East Political events that are forthcoming; with information about the Great Tribulation Period and the Parousia of the Lord Jesus Christ.

*****

There is sufficient study material on this website to serve as a guide towards understanding the Truthful Teaching of the Biblical Antichrist and his Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East Region; the Great Tribulation Period; the Seven Trumpets and Vials of the Book of Revelation; the 45+/- Days of the Wrath of God; the Rapture of the True Christian Believers, a.k.a. the Catching Out; the Parousia of the Lord Jesus Christ; and finally, some general information about the beginning of the Millennial Reign.

Coronal Mass Ejections from the Sun.

There are a few verses in the Book of Revelation that have the word: lightning in the text.

It is possible, this Cosmic Lightning could occur and cause Earthquakes, which in turn cause Volcanic Eruptions, which have Volcanic Lightning!!!

Here are the Verses in Revelation. It starts with the Seven Trumpets and Ends with the Seven Vials of the Wrath of God.

1. Revelation 8:5: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

2. Revelation 11:19: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

3. Revelation 16:18 & 21: And 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. [21] And 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.

Here is a brief statement of what I a referring to, with regards to Cosmic Lightning:  “For an hour on March 13th, a big crack opened in Earth’s magnetic field – one of the biggest in years (For specialists: BsubZ less than -20 nT),” Dr. Tony Phillips of SpaceWeather.com noted.“Solar wind poured through the gap, adding its energy to that of the CME which struck earlier in the day. This increases the chances that high-latitude auroras may remain visible at least through the early hours of March 14th.” What Dr. Phillips described took place from 21:33 to 22:36 UTC.  From:   Watchers.News/2022/03/13/CME Hits Earth
