This article is dedicated to my Patrons who make my research and writing possible.
The Plague of Darkness is the result of Moshe stretching out his hand in singular phenomena turning the air cloudy and becoming saturated with layered 'fog'. Vapors were produced that prevented the rays of light from penetrating it; just as we what we will see through a combination effort of geo-engineering, cosmic ray cloud intensification, and MIT stratospheric injections. Legend states that this air denseness that breathing the thick air became difficult and that people could not long stand up. Thus it was declared that this darkness that possessed substance. This is a darkness that engulfed the spiritual realm and the spiritual. The Plague of darkness is much more than a historical event for it encompasses the Sign of Jonah, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the events of Revelation including a time of unparalleled darkness where two witnesses come forth with in the power of God.
The Plague of Darkness came without warning. There are four instances of darkness as judgment on the Holy Writ:
And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days: Exodus 10:22
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. Matthew 27:45
Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. Jude 13
And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain Revelation 16:10
Different Kind of Darkness
Image by Celeste
Another way to view the darkness is that there distinguishing factor in that the darkness itself added something, shifting into a different substance of darkness. This kind of darkness plus His Light could only originate from on high, Psalm 19:105 Your word is a lamp unto my feet. In other words, at this time the Holy One caused a lofty reality light to emanate, an illumination which human perception however registers as darkness, analogously, the light of the sun is darkness for the bat. If this seems impossible consider the words of Jesus, The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! Matthew 6:22-23
O my God, my soul despairs within me. Therefore I remember You from the land of Jordan and the peaks of Hermon—from Mount Sinai. Deep calls to deep in the roar of Your waterfalls; all Your breakers and waves have rolled over me. The LORD decrees His loving devotion by day; and at night His song is with me—a prayer to the God of my life…Psalm 42
To really appreciate the Plague of Darkness we need to understand Psalm 42. This song was written by the remaining sons of Korach who with his family and others rebelled against God and was swallowed alive into the heart of the earth. Some Korach's family did not rebel and wrote some of the psalms you read today.
Springs of [living] water bubble up from the earth, emerging and come forth, creating the nourishing of the Jordan River. These life giving springs originate at the base of Mount Hermon where the fallen angels descended to earth making an evil covenant. It is also not coincidentally the location of Gates of Hell. The Psalmist describes how his soul longs for God during a time of darkness. He sighs at his downcast countenance. The panorama switches quickly providing us glimpses of history, the present day, and into our future. In a flash we are taken to Mt Sinai where the Torah was given being symbolic of a wedding covenant then just as rapidly to the watery deep where violent assaults threaten to overtake us to the grave. It leaves one with the distinct impression that each moment is precious.
I just heard this analogy and is is so true that our life is like a printer. Yes, a printer. The future is like the bank piece of paper. What is written and the outcome will depend upon your free-will choices. God knows but to us this paper is perceived as being blank. When the paper hits the printing section that is our reality, this unique moment that you have right now. It is being written as you read this article and the things you will accomplish this day. The paper then goes directly to the shredder! Are you surprised? I was. None of us can redeem time. Time belongs to God alone Who is outside of time. Each day we have lost moments that can never be recovered. As time draws to an end we need to ponder the fruits of our time. Did we spend time in prayer, the Word, or in following the Words of Jesus Christ in action, which is not always in alignment with His vision or Will? When our hands and minds are idle it leads to trouble.
Cycles of Time
The Psalmist likens tragedies in our life to streams of water. The watery deep to the watery deep is a metaphor for the cycles within the Laws of Nature that govern human existence. Water plays an essential role in these cycles. Celestial waters and terrestrial waters can join to gently nourish the earth or be a conduit of destruction as we saw in the days of Noah. The Prophet Ezekiel says that, The artificial device for irrigation will not avail him, much as the broken cistern does not hold water. Hence, the panting deer for living water which is the only thing that can quench thirst.
God contrasts the true Living Water as opposed to the 'dead idols' of the nations. The breakers rise high and then smash into foam and spray, symbolizing the shattering catastrophes that will beset mankind. Waves, like the magicians wheel, constantly churn plaguing mankind.
The Holy Scriptures often employ the allegory of floods of water for pain and suffering. The great billowy deep appears to be an uncontrolled, overpowering mass of water, but, nevertheless, the ocean moves with clockwork regularity. God Almighty uses His Laws of Nature to guide the mighty mass of waves. This is much as man directs small quantities of water to form man-made channels. So, too, it would appear to the superficial eye that the waves of the suffering, following one another with ever-growing intensity that the force of darkness would or could overwhelm us with uncontrolled violence. In actuality, it is the God Who quietly guides and channels them all. One wave of time, calls another to obey. One event forces the other to move into the channels which the Lord has set about for the course of time. The many blows of fate that effect us appear to be rooted with their purpose to destroy us by breaking our spirit or else to carry us away so that we will cease to preserve as a steadfast people of God. But all their efforts are to no avail, they wash over me, I remain steadfast. Why have I been able to resist these onslaughts of fate? Why was Pharaoh preserved through the many plagues where so many of his people were killed? I am compelled to wonder if the great canals on Mars are a testament to us of what happens when a people rebel against their Creator. We do have an option. Thou didst not suffer the events of time to break us or carry us away, but to know with certainty, that Thou art God.
Time of Darkness
Surely you have experienced it, darkness so thick that you could cut it with a knife or touch it. This Plague of Darkness was tangible. This is darkness so thick that it had substance.
Legend has it that the atmosphere was filled with an extremely thick layer of cloud in which made man-made light was extinguished. The apocryphal Book of Solomon eloquently describes the torment, anguish, and danger of the plague of darkness which spread gloomy night over the Egyptians.
The darkness that the Egyptians knew as night would depart, and was replaced with another kind of darkness. It was a darkness that was not merely the absence of light such as when the sun sets and it is like night. Rather it was a thick darkness. As if a thick cloud came down from heaven, descending upon them extinguishing every light, just as in dark caverns and in all extremely dark places where light cannot last for it is swallowed up in the density of the thick darkness. One that was thick and different than anything they had ever known. The spelling of the word indicates that the Egyptians could feel the darkness with their hands.
I have experienced a similar darkness in the Cave of Zedekiah. We were exploring the labyrinth of caverns and the flashlights went out. Instantly we were all engulfed in this darkness. With each moment came a greater tangibility or substance of dark. Ones emotions begin to surge in this situation adding to your already compromised situation.
It could be thought of in a different reality, that the darkness might be understood as the light was dispersed and rendered non-existent. Darkness that may be felt is understood in the sense of 'removed'.
From the Constellations to the Mountains of Darkness
As we gaze up at the heavens we see the darkness sprinkled with stars of light. Ancient peoples believed stars influenced events of history. Ash, Orion, and Pleiades God set in the chamber of the southern sky. It is under these zodiac signs that mighty evildoers function. Since God masters these constellations, He is able to exercise control over the wicked. The chambers of the south it is believed by many cultures to be where intense storms are kept. It may be that these storms precede a time of darkness more dark and evil than the Plague of darkness.
Historical accounts refer to people who pass through the Mountains of Darkness of Africa can find no candle light or fire can continue. Alexander the Great wanted to go to Africa but was advised not to venture to the Mountains of Darkness. It was a place somewhere in the heart of Africa, a place of dark knowledge. Layered darkness phenomena similar to what happens deep inside underground caves or in the Mountains of Darkness, where neither light from the fire of a candle-light is sustained and no light that reached to the outer world. It is the birthplace of the tempest according to ancient peoples.
As the End Times began to unfold when I was in Emergency Management there were a couple of things that were poignantly clear that of the deep layers of this wicked plan. Wickedness that puts a heavy weight upon a human. Surely, you feel this weight? And that interdimensional gods were being consulted and future gods and goddesses were being inserted into the organizational charts. I know this to be a fact, as I was approached to be a 'goddess'. I was so sickened I had to go outdoors for air.
Fog as Harbinger of Death
There is almost something prophetic about Carl Sandburg poem:
When God commanded the west wind to blow at the end of the Plague of Locusts blew from the sea and carried with it much moisture, it produced a heavy cloud of fog extending to all the borders of Egypt. Because of the particular atmospheric conditions of the country, instead of the clouds releasing this moisture as rain, they kept increasing over the land of Egypt, layer upon layer, becoming so palpably dense and opaque that it even extinguished kindled light. In other words, it was not just the absence of light, but a substance-like darkness. Was this possibly over saturated air that at God's command held the moisture in suspension through geo-engineering the firmament?
Earthiness is a great barrier which prevents the human soul from gaining a true comprehension of God Who is pure and spiritual. The prophets describe this dark turgid earthiness as clouds or gloom or darkness. The mind of man is enclosed by darkness of flesh and matter. He then made darkness His concealment. Can man, through technology and forbidden Dark Arts, pierce this barrier? We are but dust but the Nephilim were angelic. With their knowledge man just might breach into the domain of God but He will not allow that to happen.

Epoch of Light
Images: Robert Schwarz, Keck Telescope Array at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station
We take for granted. This brings us to the essence of Let there be light. Was light created first or was mental light of creation first and then the light?
Scripture indicates that hidden in the Future Epoch is a light for Believer's. It is a light that cannot be accommodated by physical creatures as they are today. In this world He placed a sheath about the light, concealing it in the light of the sun-suggesting that should light photons be penetrated, in some sense, spiritual entities should be detected, as we see with CERN. At the time in Egypt He drew its sheath darkening the eyes of the Egyptians. Those of true faith however can withstand the light and their eyes will not be darkened.
God sent His darkness and it was dark, and it did not rebel against His word. He made darkness His place of concealment.
One commentator regards the darkness emphasizing the negative character of the absence of light. The darkness was not thick, nor palpable. This theory is based that originated in the celestial spheres that God made this darkness as His hidden space. He made the darkness His hidden place, His pavilion around Him. Psalm 18:12
Shadows of Hell
Another commentator believes that darkness came from the regions of Gehinnom as alluded to in the Book of Job: Before I go to the land of darkness and the shadows of death without the hope of return 10:21
This Plague of Darkness arose from the pit of hell. Vapors undulated as they permeated the atmosphere coalescing into a dense gas containing opaque matter which blocked the rays of light from passing though.
Some believe that this darkness corresponds to the nothingness which preceded the Creation, originating from a source of purity. Consider the words of Jesus, This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all. 1 John 1:5 Once again, maybe it was the perception of the Egyptians playing tricks upon their eyes and minds, seeing this tangible darkness which reflected their spiritual condition.
Some believe that this was a prophetic darkness and indeed it does contain that element in which the wicked are unworthy of being affected by something from such a pure source [God]; the darkness was an uncovering of the shades of death as the horrors of punishment were unleashed.
Flee with a Fear of the Lord
In these days and times one must prepare that one may have to flee. What will you take and what will remain?
Only your flocks and cattle shall remain behind…Despite their enslavement the Hebrews owned some property and livestock inherited from their ancestors. The Hebrew's were told to leave their flocks and herds behind. There are intricate reasons that they did not do this but here the words of Jesus about the time of Tribulation, When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. It is also said: Better to have a little with the fear of the Lord than great treasure with turmoil. Proverbs 15:16
Coming Against Evil
even you will place in our hands sacrifices and burnt offerings….
Just as a child stealing a cookie from the cookie jar there is a time when a parent needs to discipline.
The Masoretic text indicates that this wording only occurs twice in the Bible during the Plague of Darkness and the narrative of Jehu's slaughter of the worshipers of Baal.
They came with to offer peace offerings and burnt offerings II Kings 10:24. Jehu wrought judgment against the worshipers of Baal and against the idols themselves, for he smashed the pillar of Baal and slew its worshipers, so too here, God visited the punishment upon the Egyptians and upon their gods.
There is a link between Egypt and America as evidenced by the extensive, yet secreted and 'spirited' away, Egyptian archeological remains. Was this Egyptian tether why when America was visited by the Arch of Baal that we who claim Jesus Christ or are a God-fearer did not smash this idolatrous arch and slaughter its worshipers? Why did we not drive the Arch of Baal from our land? What price will America see due its complacency and complicit action as Satan's accomplice? I would submit to you that we are seeing the beginnings of our judgment, the unraveling of our wrongdoings:
- Infanticide sullies our land
- Slaughter of the elderly and vulnerable populations
- Designing of monstrous creatures who are bestial in nature with no soul, no spirit.
- Engineering of shells for the wicked
For on the very day you see my face you shall die…I shall never see your face again..
We are about to come face-to-face with the True Judge. He is the Holy and True God. Will we as a result of our stubborn and unyielding hearts?
Many times Pharaoh hardened his heart and with the Plague of Darkness now God hardens his heart.
Those of you who see the Light we only have a small bit of time before the darkness of the Tribulation overtakes us, engulfs us. Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. John 12:35
We need to be bold in our faith. We need to bring it to action, arise in our faith, and become as the great biblical personages and characters, according to our calling. In the power of Jesus Christ we must embrace our destiny to be the Jehu or the Elijah of our time.
If we claim that we have fellowship with him but keep living in darkness, we are lying and not practicing the truth. 1 John 1:6
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. Ephesians 5:11
If we fail to be obedient to His words will we be cast forever into the flames of Gehinnom (hell)? What is hell? Is there any escape?
We can glean more about the Plague of Darkness and the coming Tribulation from the Book of Jonah than we do in the biblical narrative on this plague. Join me, God willing, as we explore the implications and more details on the Plague of Darkness and hell in The Sign of Jonah.
For those who are actively pray for my ministry I humbly want to thank each one of you!
