15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth forever.
16 To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth forever.
17 To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:
18 And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:
19 Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:
20 And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:
As we look to the Bible our Handbook for Catastrophe certain passages of scripture literally jump out at us. The Psalmist discusses the destruction of Pharaoh and his armies in the Sea of Reeds (or the Red Sea), describing it as a kindness. God's judgment on the antediluvian world, is in part, due to the sins of the fallen angels.
A Cataclysm of the Sea
During the Great Flood, the earth’s crust fractured to bring the fountains of the deep to the surface, and a deluge of rain from the sky. This indicates to us a there is a special relationship between water—the seas, subterranean levels, and the abyss where certain demons are confined.
In Luke 8:30-33 we see:
8:30 Jesus then asked him, “What’s your name?” He said, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him. 8:31 And they began to beg him not to order them to depart into the abyss. 8:32 Now a large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, and the demons begged Jesus to let them go into them. So he gave them permission. 8:33 Then the demons came out of the man and went into the pigs, and the herd of pigs rushed down the steep slope into the lake and were drowned.
The swine running into the water—was certainly a judgment—and probably symbolical of Christ casting them into the abyss, which is what they did not want. This could be part of the reason for the absence of the oceans in the new heavens and earth.
In the days, of the Revelation, the Beast will emerge from the sea. Later, in Revelation 21, the Revelator says, “Then I saw ‘new heaven and a new earth,’ for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.” Jesus is providing insights into a new reality that is to come to pass. We can take this in many ways as the scripture has many different levels:
· Literally, possibly all seas, or maybe just the Mediterranean Sea
· Figuratively, as in- no more divisions among people for the sea is often used to describe humanity
· Cataclysm is terminated- the absence of anything that is perilous, unpredictable, or tumultuous.
· The end of evil as the “sea” was the source of the satanically empowered beast as we see in Revelation 13:1.
As judgment and prophetic cataclysm ramp up, we see in the news much discussion about the sea and its rise. However, the Lord chooses to do it, I do believe we will see the sea rise. God will once again catapult mankind into walls of water. Many will face a watery execution due to their partnership with evil. This will be so dramatic that even a simple person will be able to observe that this was not a natural occurrence, but rather, an act of the Almighty. God chastises the wicked with the punishment fitting the crime (think about evil being drowned in the sea). It is a kindness to mankind.
One last consideration is the possibility that during the judgment of the wicked upon the earth is that the seas boil off the earth as the result of a supernova or celestial body encounter with earth. Scientists speculate that Mars once ha vast oceans and that boiled off into space. We see this even with much smaller solar storms were a very minute percentage of our atmosphere and its waters escape earth into the vastness of outer space. We will see shortly, that this scenario may have played out during the time of the great Flood, cosmic influences by the sun, planets, or other incoming objects with the power to shake heaven but also displace the earth’s crust allowing boiling water to gush forth.
The Wilderness of Testing
The Psalmist takes us immediately from the sea to the Wilderness. The desolate wilderness was an uncharted wasteland, impassable to man, yet God has guided His people though it skillfully. Moreover, in this parched land, He supplies all their needs for the duration. His people never lacked for food, drink, or other provisions. Indeed, that care and protection was an enduring kindness. In the days to come, we need to remember as commodities the necessities to live are scarce, that God will provide for us. The Psalmist is telling us that after the beast emerges from the sea, we God’s people will be thrust into a wilderness of wickedness. It will be a desert, the haunt of demons, virtual reality in harmony with the demonically empowered beast world.
Wilderness, as portrayed in the Bible, is a Janus-like construct; on the one hand, a place of desolation, frequented by demons and condemned by God. “Their lands become a wilderness... , because of (Yahweh’s) wrath,” Jeremiah 25:38 tells us. Yet, on the other hand, the Book of Revelation tells us, the reader, that the wilderness enables the contemplative Christian contrast to see the Divine more clearly. Anyone who has traveled in the wilderness knows that it is a land of dramatic contrasts.
It will be in this wilderness, we will have the Light of Jesus, as our pillar of fire in the night of wickedness, and His cloud of protection by day. We recall that the Word was given in the wilderness. Jesus was tempted by Satan in the wilderness and so we are tested by its hostile landscape. It will be in the wilderness where we see the manifestation of the grace of Jesus so vividly.
What Our Eyes will Behold
The Psalmist then tells us what we shall see in this wilderness.
To Him Who smote the great kings. Just as Joshua smote thirty-one great kings, we shall witness the punishment of the evil kings of the earth.
And slew the mighty kings…We recall that Pharaoh and his host were a powerful host. Powerful as the Canaanite kings, and yet God afflicted Pharaoh, his host, and the Canaanites, killing them.
Giants of Old
The Psalmist now interjects the giants of old for we will indeed face them again as they are animated and find suitable hosts (vessels) to inhabit. For indeed, Isaiah the prophet, known for his prophecies of global catastrophe, describes:
Lift a standard on the mountain of the plain, exalt the voice to them, beckon with the hand, open the gates, ye rulers.
I give the command, and I bring them: giants are coming to fulfill my wrath, rejoicing at the same time and insulting.
A voice of many nations on the mountains, even like to that of many nations; a voice of kings and nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts has given command to a war-like nation, o come from a land afar off, from the utmost foundation of heaven; the Lord and his warriors are coming to destroy all the world.
Howl ye, for the day of the Lord, is near, and destruction from God shall arrive. Isaiah 13:2-6
Drilling down, the Psalmist elaborates on the two famous giants: Sichon and Og.
These were both sons of the giant Achayah ben Shamchazai who was a major fallen angel conspirator. These two brothers were mighty warriors and exceedingly arrogant. It is said in Legend that Sihon was a solid as a tower and its bastion. That he was stronger than any man or beast. He was only subdued and bound because Sichon’s guardian angel in heaven was bound in heaven thereby destroying the source of Sichon’s might, making it possible for mortal man to fell him. This may sound fantastical, but we know Daniel when he proposed to understand and explain what will happen in the latter days, for his vision concerns those days was delayed due to a struggle with the guardian angel of the Prince of Persia. (Daniel 10:12-14). The story of Samson also comes to mind when his great strength was cut off. These giants were stronger than Pharaoh and his legions. A song was composed when Pharaoh met his end and yet when these giants were killed, the song of victory remained silent until David composed a song of victory.
The Psalmist now turns to Og, king of Bashan. In Genesis 14:13 he is described as a fugitive, escaped the Deluge and the battle at the time of Abraham. Legend say Og rescued Abraham's nephew Lot. It is not known how Og survived the great Flood. There are many stories and speculations. One story says he hung onto a gangplank of the ark.
We rarely take time to contemplate just how catastrophic the Flood was with the rupturing of the earth, with giant rifts and fissures, and eruptions of undersea volcanoes spewing up mighty fountains of boiling water from the cauldron from deep within the earth, as cold rains gushing forth from the heavens. How is it that Og survived this tumult?
When Moses went to attack Og, he needed special encouragement for he feared Og more than Sichon. He was fearful, in part, because Moses may have assumed that due to his longevity that this giant had some sort of special or divine protection that spared his life. God instructs him, “do not fear him,” (Deut. 3:2). So too, we should not fear the giants that will emerge and roam the earth, even should they bear what to us appears as immortal souls.
Archetypes of Good and Evil
We can see that each generation has arch-types of good and evil. One of the stories passed down through the generations is that just as the serpent desired Eve to be his wife, so too, Og desired Sarah to be his wife. Whether this is true or not we do not know. What we do know with confidence is that the serpent, the nachish of old, will be defeated. A precursor to that final destruction is the slaying of the immortal giants who terrorize the earth.
It will be that by the command of God that these giants, symbols of immortality and the offspring of evil rebellion, will be turned into dust forever. No longer will evil be allowed to animate them or their demonic spirit be allowed to inhabit the earth.
In summary, though catastrophe is on every horizon we must remember the kindness of Jesus. He has equipped and provided each one of you for this time in history. He will see us through safely into eternity with Him
