The Messiah came to fulfill the Torah,

Do not think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. (Matthew 5:17)

Which not only included its commands of “you shall not steal” and “you shall not murder”,

You shall not steal. (Exodus 20:15)

You shall not murder. (Exodus 20:13)

But also its appointed times, yet he did not fulfill them in the way of the old covenant, which was based on the blood of animals, through which the Torah came,

Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it in the hearing of the people. And they said, “All that Yehovah has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.” And Moses took the blood and threw it on the people and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant that Yehovah has made with you in accordance with all these words.” (Exodus 24:7-8)

But in the way of the new covenant, which was based on his own blood,

“The days are coming,” declares Yehovah, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah”. (Jeremiah 31:31)

This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. (Matthew 26:28)

While not discarding any of the commands in the Torah that came through the old covenant,

For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Torah until everything is accomplished. (Matthew 5:18)

It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Torah. (Luke 16:17)

Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:19)

Where the new way the Messiah fulfilled the appointed times of the Torah was to do so in the literal way that the appointed times foreshadowed,

The Torah is only a shadow of the good things to come, not the realities themselves… (Hebrews 10:1)

Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a feast, a new moon or Shabbats. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in the Messiah. (Colossians 2:16-17)

Which is why when the Messiah fulfilled the spring appointed times of the Torah in his first coming, such as the Passover, he did so not by sacrificing a lamb as the Torah commanded, but by becoming the literal sacrifice that the command foreshadowed, on the precise day and time of the slaughter of the lamb, which was on a Wednesday afternoon,

you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this new moon, when the all the assemblies of the congregation of Israel shall kill their lambs in the time before evening. (Exodus 12:5-6)

In the first new moon, on the fourteenth day of the new moon in the time before evening, is the Passover of Yehovah. (Leviticus 23:5)

The next day he saw Yeshuah coming toward him, and said, Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29)

Now before the feast of the Passover, Yeshuah knew that his hour had come to depart from this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. The devil had already put it into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot to betray him. And during supper… after he had taken the morsel, Satan entered into him. Yeshuah said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.” Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him. Some thought that, because Judas had the moneybag, Yeshuah was telling him, “Buy what we need for the feast,” or that he should give something to the poor. (John 13:1-29)

And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way. Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Yeshuah cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.” And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink. But the others said, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him.” And Yeshuah cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his airflow. (Matthew 27:44-50)

Let the Messiah, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross that we may see and believe.” Those who were crucified with him also reviled him. And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Yeshuah cried with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of the bystanders hearing it said, “Behold, he is calling Elijah.” And someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.” And Yeshuah uttered a loud cry and breathed his last. (Mark 15:32-37)

For the Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. (1 Corinthians 5:7)

God presented the Messiah as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood… (Romans 3:25)

In which case, the Messiah also fulfilled the commands of the Torah that outlined the requirements of the lamb to be used for sacrifice, such as it being perfect with no blemishes, for the Messiah never sinned,

Your lamb shall be perfect… (Exodus 12:5)

but with the precious blood of the Messiah, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. (1 Peter 1:19)

He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. (1 Peter 2:22)

God made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

And also the requirement to not break the bones of the lamb, for the bones of the Messiah were not broken,

It must be eaten inside the house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones. (Exodus 12:46)

These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,” (John 19:36)

He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. (Psalm 34:20)

And also the requirement for the lamb to be a “son of the year”, which means the first lamb to be born in the year, per flock, for the Messiah came into existence in the beginning of creation first before all souls came into existence after him, which were angels, animals, and man,

Your lamb shall be… a male son of the year… (Exodus 12:5)

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. (Colossians 1:15)

And the Messiah also fulfilled the First Fruits offering of the Torah, which was an offering from the barley harvest, which was on the day after the first Shabbat after the Passover, which in the year the Messiah was killed was 3 days and 3 nights after the Passover, which the Messiah fulfilled on the precise day and time of the First Fruits offering by his resurrection around or after 6:00pm on a Saturday, the day after the Shabbat, for the days of the Torah begin in the evening, where he became the first fruits among the dead to be resurrected into new immortal bodies, which is why when the women came early in the morning on a Sunday, the Messiah was already gone,

And Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When you come into the land that I give you and reap its harvest, you shall bring an omer of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest, and he shall wave the omer before Yehovah, so that you may be accepted. On the day after the Shabbat the priest shall wave it (Leviticus 23:9-11)

For as in Adam all die, so also in the Messiah shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Messiah the first fruits, then at his coming those who belong to the Messiah. (1 Corinthians 15:22-23)

But in fact the Messiah has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20)

For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12:40)

When the Shabbat was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?” And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Yeshuah of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. (Mark 16:1-6)

Now after the Shabbat, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Master descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Yeshuah who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. (Matthew 28:1-6)

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Master Yeshuah. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead?  (Luke 24:1-5)

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Yeshuah loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Master out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” (John 20:1-2)

And the Messiah also fulfilled the Feast of Weeks of the Torah, also called the Feast of Harvest, or also called Pentecost, which happens 50 days after the First Fruits offering of the barley harvest, which is when the First Fruits of the wheat harvest is offered, which the Messiah fulfilled by sending the airflow of God to his disciples on the precise day and time of Pentecost, to thus put a seal on those he purchased to himself as first fruits from among the inhabitants of the earth,

You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Shabbat, from the day that you brought the omer of the wave offering. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Shabbat… (Leviticus 23:15-16)

You shall count seven weeks. Begin to count the seven weeks from the time the sickle is first put to the standing grain. (Deuteronomy 16:9)

Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to Yehovah. You shall bring from your dwelling places two loaves of bread to be waved, made of two tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked with leaven, as first fruits to Yehovah. (Leviticus 23:16-17)

You shall observe the Feast of Weeks, the first fruits of wheat harvest… (Exodus 34:22)

On the day of the first fruits, when you offer a grain offering of new grain to Yehovah at your Feast of Weeks, you shall have a set-apart convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, (Numbers 28:26)

You shall keep the Feast of Harvest, of the first fruits of your labor, of what you sow in the field… (Exodus 23:16)

Then you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to Yehovah your God with the tribute of a voluntary offering from your hand, which you shall give as Yehovah your God blesses you. And you shall rejoice before Yehovah your God, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your towns, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, at the place that Yehovah your God will choose, to make his name dwell there. (Deuteronomy 16:10-11)

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the set-apart airflow and began to speak in other tongues as the airflow gave them utterance. (Acts 2:1-4)

In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised set-apart airflow, (Ephesians 1:13)

And it is God who establishes us with you in the Messiah, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his airflow in our hearts as a guarantee. (2 Corinthians 1:21-22)

you were purchased at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. (1 Corinthians 6:20)

Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the set-apart airflow has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the assembly of God, which he purchased with his own blood. (Acts 20:28)

Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. (James 1:18)

And the Messiah will also fulfill the autumn appointed times of the Torah, at his second coming, which is why his coming is associated with the sound of trumpets,

Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven… with a loud trumpet call… (Matthew 24:30-31)

For the Master himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God… (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

For he comes to fulfill the appointed time to sound the trumpets of the Torah, which is around the autumn, which are sounded on New Moon Seven Day 1 in the calendar of the Torah, which is around September or October in the Gregorian calendar, which is around Tishri 1 or around Chesvan 1 in the Jewish calendar, whenever the crescent moon first appears in either Jewish month, which is the Torah “new moon”, depending on whether “New Moon One” in the year he returns was around Nisan 1 or Iyar 1,

On the first day of the seventh new moon you shall have a set-apart convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work. It is a day for you to blow the trumpets, (Numbers 29:1)

Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh new moon, on the first day of the new moon, you shall have a shabbat-rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a set-apart convocation. (Leviticus 23:24)

Where shortly before the sounding of the trumpets, the day the Messiah descends on the earth will be like the day Yehovah descended on Mount Sinai,

and be ready for the third day. For on the third day Yehovah will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people… On the morning of the third day there were thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud on the mountain and a very loud trumpet blast, so that all the people in the camp trembled. Then Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they took their stand at the foot of the mountain. Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke because Yehovah had descended on it in fire. The smoke of it went up like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled greatly. (Exodus 19:11-18)

Where instead of only one mountain trembling and covered in thunderstorms, the entire earth will tremble and be wrapped around and covered in thunderstorms, which is the meaning of “the heavens parted asunder like a scroll being rolled up”,

and the heavens will be rolled up like a scroll… (Isaiah 34:4)

For the day is near, the day of Yehovah is near; it will be a day of clouds, a time of the nations.
(Ezekiel 30:3)

Let all the inhabitants of the earth tremble, for the day of Yehovah is coming, for it is near: a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness (Joel 2:1-2)

He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him– the dark rain clouds of the sky. (Psalm 18:11)

Oh, that you would part asunder the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you! (Isaiah 64:1)

Then the earth shook and quaked; And the foundations of the mountains were trembling And were shaken, because He was angry… He pitched the heavens also, and came down with thick darkness under His feet. (Psalm 18:7-9)

the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of Yehovah Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. (Isaiah 13:13)

The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. (Ezekiel 38:20)

Which happens in the final portion of the sixth seal of Revelation,

The heavens parted asunder like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains. They called to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?” (Revelation 6:14-17)

Which precedes the sounding of the trumpets by a prophetic 1/2 hour, which is equivalent to 7 and 1/2 literal days, since 1 prophetic hour is equivalent to 15 literal days, for there will be silence in heaven after the second coming of the Messiah,

When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. (Revelation 8:1)

For the Messiah will return with all his angels, which will thus leave heaven in silence,

so as to support your hearts blameless in set-apartness before the God and our father, at the arrival of our Master Yeshuah Messiah with all his set-apart ones. (I Thessalonians 3:13)

Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Master is coming with thousands upon thousands of his set-apart ones (Jude 1:14)

And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Master Yeshuah appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels, (2 Thessalonians 1:7)

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. (Matthew 25:31)

For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done. (Matthew 16:27)

If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the set-apart angels.” (Mark 8:38)

Yehovah thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty is the army that obeys his command. The day of Yehovah is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it? (Joel 2:11)

Which is the beginning of the “great tribulation”, which is not a “7 year” time, for the 70 weeks of Daniel were fulfilled in their entirety, which includes the final week of Daniel, but rather, the great tribulation refers to the time beginning with the second coming of the Messiah, because of the destruction he will bring on the earth through a series of plagues, leading up to the final judgment and condemnation after the plagues, which is the worst tribulation that has ever befallen the earth, nor will ever happen again,

At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people–everyone whose name is found written in the book–will be delivered. (Daniel 12:1)

For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now–and never to be equaled again. “If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time. “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. (Matthew 24:21-27)

For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation that God created until now, and never will be. And if the Master had not cut short the days, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect, whom he chose, he shortened the days. (Mark 13:19-20)

and to you being oppressed, repose with us at the revelation of the Master Yeshuah from heaven, with His mighty angels, in a fire of flame, inflicting vengeance on those not knowing God and on those not obeying the gospel of our Master Yeshuah, who will suffer the penalty of aeonial destruction away from the presence of the Master and from the glory of His power, when in that day He shall come to be glorified in His set-apart ones, and to be marveled at among all those having believed because our testimony to you was believed, (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10)

Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. (Revelation 3:10)

And the Messiah will descend with his armies of angels on a newly formed mountain, which will become the highest mountain on the earth, “Mount Zion”, which will be the mountain where the Messiah will rule the earth from and also where the temple Ezekiel saw in a vision will eventually be built,

For Yehovah said to me, “As a lion or a young lion growls over his prey, and when a band of shepherds is called out against him he is not terrified by their shouting or daunted at their noise, so Yehovah of armies will come down to fight on Mount Zion, upon its mountain. (Isaiah 31:4)

Yehovah roars from Zion, and utters his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth quake. But Yehovah is a refuge to his people, a stronghold to the people of Israel. (Joel 3:16)

Then the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For Yehovah of armies will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, And His glory will be before His elders. (Isaiah 24:23)

Thus says Yehovah: I have returned to Zion and will dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth and the mountain of Yehovah of armies, the set-apart mountain. (Zechariah 8:3)

...Yehovah will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and aeonially. (Micah 4:7)

Then you will know that I, Yehovah your God, dwell in Zion, my set-apart mountain. Jerusalem will be set-apart; never again will foreigners invade her. (Joel 3:17)

In visions of God he took me to the land of Israel and set me on a very high mountain, on whose south side were some buildings that looked like a city. So he took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand. The man said to me, “Son of man, look carefully and listen closely and pay attention to everything I am going to show you, for that is why you have been brought here. Tell the people of Israel everything you see.” I saw a wall completely surrounding the temple area. The length of the measuring rod in the man’s hand was six long cubits, each of which was a cubit and a hand breadth. He measured the wall; it was one measuring rod thick and one rod high. (Ezekiel 40:2-5)

In the last days the mountain of Yehovah’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of Yehovah, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of Yehovah from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 2:2-3)

In the last days the mountain of Yehovah’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and peoples will stream to it.(Micah 4:1)

It is he who will build the temple of Yehovah, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest on his throne. And there will be harmony between the two.’ (Zechariah 6:13)

A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah. Great is Yehovah, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his set-apart mountainBeautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, like the remote parts of the north is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King. God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress…. Mount Zion rejoices, the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments. Walk about Zion, go around her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to the next generation. (Psalm 48:1-13)

And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says Yehovah of armies. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, declares Yehovah of armies. The latter glory of this house shall be greater than the former, says Yehovah of armies. And in this place I will give peace, declares Yehovah of armies. (Haggai 2:7-9)

You will arise and have pity on Zion; it is the time to favor her; the appointed time has come. For your servants hold her stones dear and have pity on her dust. Nations will fear the name of Yehovah, and all the kings of the earth will fear your glory. For Yehovah builds up Zion; he appears in his glory(Psalm 102:13-16)

But Yehovah reigns aeonially. He has prepared his throne for judgment. He will judge the world in righteousness. He will administer judgment to the peoples in uprightness. Yehovah will also be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Those who know your name will put their trust in you, for you, Yehovah, have not forsaken those who seek you. Sing praises to Yehovah, who dwells in Zion, and declare among the people what he has done. (Psalm 9:7-11)

Yet have I set my king upon my set-apart mountain of Zion. (Psalm 2:6)

Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength…(Isaiah 52:1)

From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth. Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him… (Psalm 50:2-3)

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of Yehovah has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but Yehovah will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising… Foreigners shall build up your walls, and their kings shall minister to youfor in my wrath I struck you, but in my favor I have had mercy on you. 11 Your gates shall be open continually; day and night they shall not be shut, that people may bring to you the wealth of the nations, with their kings led in procession. 12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; those nations shall be utterly laid waste. 13 The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the cypress, the plane, and the pine, to beautify the place of my set-apart place, and I will make the place of my feet glorious. 14 The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bending low to you, and all who despised you shall bow down at your feet; they shall call you the City of Yehovah the Zion of the Set-Apart One of Israel(Isaiah 60:1-14)

And then, 7 and 1/2 days after descending on Mount Zion, his angels will begin to sound the trumpets, which are the seven trumpets of Revelation, which will begin to sound on  New Moon Seven Day 1,

When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. (Revelation 8:1-2)

The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earthA third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. (Revelation 8:7)

He pitched the heavens and came down; dark storm clouds were beneath his feetThick clouds shielded the brightness around him and rained down hail and burning coals. (Psalm 18:9-12)

Yehovah will make his majestic voice heard. He will come down with all his might, with furious anger, with fire storms, windstorms, rainstorms, and hailstones.
(Isaiah 30:30)

But shall come the day of the Master as a thief in the night… and the elements being incinerated by fire shall be loosed; and the earth and the works in it shall be incinerated. (2 Peter 3:10)

expecting and hastening the arrival of the day of God… by reason of which from the heavens fire shall be loosed, and the elements being incinerated by fire shall melt? (2 Peter 3:12)

The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. (Revelation 8:8)

The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter. (Revelation 8:10-11)

Therefore thus says Yehovah of armies concerning the prophets, ‘Behold, I am going to feed them wormwood And make them drink poisonous water, For from the prophets of Jerusalem Pollution has gone forth into all the land. (Jeremiah 23:15)

Then the fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkenedAnd there was no light for a third of the day and for a third of the night likewise. (Revelation 8:12)

the sun will be darkened, the moon will give no light… (Matthew 24:29)

For the stars of heaven and their constellations Will not flash forth their light; The sun will be dark when it rises And the moon will not shed its light. (Isaiah 13:10)

Then the moon will be confounded and the sun ashamed… (Isaiah 24:23)

When I blot you out, I will veil the heavens and darken the stars. I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give you its light. (Ezekiel 32:7)

The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. (Joel 2:10)

The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars withdraw their shining. (Joel 3:15)

At that time, after the anguish of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will give no light, (Mark 13:24)

And the final three trumpets are “woes”, because they are worse than the preceding trumpets,

As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!” (Revelation 8:13)

And just as plagues were brought against Egypt by evil angels, through the authority of God,

When Yehovah goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the door frame and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down. (Exodus 12:23)

How he had wrought his signs in Egypt… He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.
(Psalm 78:43-49)

So it will be in the fifth trumpet, where evil angels will be released,

The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth…They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strike. And in those days people will seek death and will not find it. They will long to die, but death will flee from them… They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer)(Revelation 9:1-11)

Yet these angels will not kill, but instead, will cause torment by forcing man to undergo the plagues that come after the trumpet sounds, by not letting men kill themselves, all the way to the final judgment and condemnation, which will take up to 5 months, thus fulfilling the prophecy spoken by Isaiah,

Then your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand; when the overwhelming scourge passes through, you will be beaten down by it. As often as it passes through it will take you; for morning by morning it will pass through, by day and by night; and it will be sheer terror to understand the report. (Isaiah 28:18-19)

And also in the sixth trumpet more evil angels will be released, to command an army of more evil angels to kill a third of man on the earth,

Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind. And the number of the military of the horses — two myriads of myriads; and I heard their number. (Revelation 9:13-16)

Sound the trumpet in Zion! Raise the alarm on my set-apart mountain! Let everyone tremble in fear because the day of Yehovah is upon us. It is a day of darkness and gloom, a day of thick clouds and deep blackness. Suddenly, like dawn spreading across the mountains, a great and mighty army appears. Nothing like it has been seen before or will ever be seen again. Fire burns in front of them, and flames follow after themAhead of them the land lies as beautiful as the Garden of Eden. Behind them is nothing but desolation; not one thing escapes.They look like horses;they charge forward like warhorses.Look at them as they leap along the mountaintops. Listen to the noise they make—like the rumbling of chariots, like the roar of fire sweeping across a field of stubble,or like a mighty army moving into battle.Fear grips all the people; every face grows pale with terror. The attackers march like warriors and scale city walls like soldiers. Straight forward they march, never breaking rank. They never jostle each other;  each moves in exactly the right position. They break through defenses without missing a step. 9 They swarm over the city and run along its walls. They enter all the houses, climbing like thieves through the windows(Joel 2:1-9)

And then at the sound of the seventh trumpet blast, the Messiah will begin to rule the earth, which is worse than the preceding trumpets,

And the seventh angel trumped. And there were great voice in the heaven, saying, The kingdom of the world is become of our Master, and of his Messiah, and he shall reign into the aeons of the aeons. (Revelation 11:15)

For the beginning of his rulership on earth will shatter the nations like pottery, with the plagues that come after the seven trumpets,

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall shatter them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. (Psalm 2:8-9)

and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are shattered in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. (Revelation 2:27)

Yet before the nations are shattered, the Messiah will fulfill the Day of Atonement of the Torah, which happens on New Moon Seven Day 10, which is when the last trumpet is sounded after the seven trumpets, which is when those who were purchased by the blood of the Messiah and sealed with the airflow of God will be resurrected as first fruits from the inhabitants of the earth into new immortal bodies, which is the first resurrection, which will be 144,000 chosen, and also Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and will be gathered by angels from all around the earth, and taken to where the Messiah will be,

The tenth day of this seventh new moon is the Day of Atonement. Hold a set-apart convocation and lower yourselves, and present an offering by fire to Yehovah. Do not do any work on that day, because it is the Day of Atonement, when atonement is made for you before Yehovah your God. (Leviticus 23:27-28)

On the tenth day of this seventh new moon you shall have a set-apart convocation and lower yourselves. You shall do no work, (Numbers 29:7)

Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh new moon; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land. Set apart the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan. The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines. (Leviticus 25:9-11)

Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children. (Isaiah 66:8)

Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. (Revelation 14:1)

and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been purchased from the earth. They keep themselves as pure as virgins, following the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as first fruits to God and the Lamb. (Revelation 14:3-4)

Behold, I speak a mystery to you; we shall not all indeed sleep, but all shall be changed, in an instant, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For it shall trump, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For it is necessary this corruption to put on incorruptibility, and this mortal to put on immortality. But whenever this corruptible should have put on incorruptibility, and this mortal should have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the word having been written, Death was swallowed down in victory. (1 Corinthians 15:51-54)

For the Master himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in the Messiah will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air, and so we will always be with the Master. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

For many are invited, but few are chosen. (Matthew 22:14)

So then also in the present time a remnant according to choice of favor takes place. (Romans 11:5)

Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea, only the remnant will be saved. (Romans 9:27)

In that day Yehovah will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, Israel, will be gathered up one by one. And in that day a great trumpet will sound… (Isaiah 27:12-13)

He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth. (Isaiah 11:12)

For all the rest of the dead, only the ones whose names are written in the book of life, will not be granted immortal bodies until after the thousand year rulership of the Messiah, once they are resurrected in the last resurrection, and will receive aeonial life in the new heaven and new earth, from the tree of life,

And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done… And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
(Revelation 20:12-15)

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more… He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. (Revelation 21:1-4)

through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:2)

Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. (Revelation 22:14)

And on that same day the Messiah will send another set of angels to capture those that belong to the house of Israel and house of Judah that refused to believe in Yeshuah, to throw them outside Jerusalem,

The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. (Matthew 13:41)

I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 8:11-12)

Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from. Depart from me, all you workers of unrighteousness!’ There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God but you yourselves cast out. (Luke 13:26-28)

I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.” “Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other will be left.” And they said to him, “Where, Master?” He said to them, “Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.” (Luke 17:34-37)

To be trampled,

What more was there to do for my vineyard, that I have not done in it? When I looked for it to yield grapes, why did it yield wild grapes? And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will remove its hedge, and it shall be devoured; I will break down its wall, and it shall be trampled down… For the vineyard of Yehovah of armies is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah are his pleasant planting; and he looked for justice, but behold, bloodshed; for righteousness, but behold, an outcry!
(Isaiah 5:4-7)

Swing the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, trample the grapes, for the winepress is full and the vats overflow– so great is their wickedness! (Joel 3:13)

Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.” Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress? “I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing. (Isaiah 63:1-3)

Because these two gatherings are the fulfillment of two different harvests of the Torah that become ready for gathering by the Day of Atonement, which is the turn of year of the Torah, where the first harvest is a type of grain, perhaps spelt, which was threshed on a threshing floor, and the other harvest was grapes, which was pressed in a winepress,

after the ingathering from your threshing-floor and from your winepress (Deuteronomy 16:13)

…at the turn of the year when you gather in the fruit of your labors from the field. (Exodus 23:16)

Which is the fulfillment of a prophecy in Revelation concerning these two different harvests, grain and grapes, where the grain harvest is gathered through the “one seated on the cloud”, which is the Messiah, whereas the grape harvest is gathered to trample those grapes outside the “city”, which is Jerusalem,

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand. Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested… Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, as high as a horse’s bridle, for 1,600 stadia. (Revelation 14:15-20)

And then the Feast of Tabernacles happens in New Moon Seven Day 15, which is also called the Feast of Ingathering, because it happens after the preceding two harvests are gathered,

You are to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after the ingathering from your threshing-floor and from your winepress (Deuteronomy 16:13)

also the Feast of the Ingathering at the turn of the year when you gather in the fruit of your labors from the field. (Exodus 23:16)

So beginning with the fifteenth day of the seventh new moon, after you have gathered the crops of the land, celebrate the feast to Yehovah for seven days… celebrate it in the seventh new moon. Live in tabernacles for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in tabernacles when I brought them out of Egypt. I am Yehovah your God. (Leviticus 23:39-43)

Which will be fulfilled by the Messiah when he takes his people that have been gathered to Mount Zion, to feast and take shelter for seven days, for the plagues of God that will shatter the nations will also be poured on the earth in the same seven days,

He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters… He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. Yehovah has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me. (Psalm 18:16-20)

But your dead will live, Yehovah; their bodies will rise– let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy– your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead. Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by. See, Yehovah is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the blood shed on it; the earth will conceal its slain no longer. (Isaiah 26:19-21)

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people, then there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to aeonial life, and some to shame and aeonial contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars aeonially and beyond. (Daniel 12:1-3)

But you have come to Mount Zion, and the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, (Hebrews 12:22)

On this mountain Yehovah Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine– the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death… The Master Yehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. Yehovah has spoken. In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is Yehovah, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” The hand of Yehovah will rest on this mountain; but Moab will be trampled in their land as straw is trampled down in the manure. (Isaiah 25:6-10)

I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will recline at the table with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 8:11)

Yehovah swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke: One of your own descendants I will place on your throne. If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them always, then their sons will sit on your throne always. For Yehovah has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling, saying, “This is my resting place always; here I will always sit enthroned, for I have desired it. I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor I will satisfy with food. I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her faithful people will ever sing for joy. “Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one. I will clothe his enemies with shame, but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown.” (Psalm 132:11-18)

A song of ascents. Of David. How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there Yehovah bestows his blessing, even aeonial life. (Psalm 133:1-3)

Oh, that Israel’s deliverance would come from Zion! When Yehovah restores the fortunes of His people, Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad.  (Psalm 14:7)

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad. (Psalm 53:6)

Then Yehovah will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain. (Isaiah 4:5-6)

What will one answer the messengers of the nation? “Yehovah has founded Zion, and in her the afflicted of his people find refuge.” (Isaiah 14:32)

who shall dwell in your set-apart mountain?… (Psalm 15:1)

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your gloryand you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of Yehovah will give… Behold, Yehovah has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the daughter of Zion, “Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.” 12 And they shall be called The Set-Apart People, The Purchased of Yehovah; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken. (Isaiah 62:1-12)

For the Feast of Tabernacles not only came with a command to dwell in tabernacles, but also a command to pour wine on the altar with golden bowls for seven days,

And you shall make its plates and dishes for incense, and its flagons and bowls with which to pour drink offerings; you shall make them of pure gold. (Exodus 25:29)

and give two quarts of wine as a liquid offering. This will be a special gift, a pleasing aroma to Yehovah. (Numbers 15:10)

Along with it you must present the proper liquid offering of one quart of alcoholic drink with each lamb, poured out in the Set-Apart Place as an offering to Yehovah. (Numbers 28:7)

On the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have a set-apart convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall keep a feast to Yehovah seven days. And you shall offer a burnt offering, a food offering, with a pleasing aroma to Yehovah, thirteen bulls from the herd, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old; they shall be without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the second day twelve bulls from the herd, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and their drink offerings… “On the third day eleven bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the fourth day ten bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the fifth day nine bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering… “On the sixth day eight bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offerings… “On the seventh day seven bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish… and its drink offering. (Numbers 29:12-34)

Which is the seven bowls of wrath of Revelation,

he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger… (Revelation 14:10)

Then I looked and saw that the Temple in heaven, God’s Tabernacle, was thrown wide open. The seven angels who were holding the seven plagues came out of the Temple. They were clothed in spotless white linen with gold sashes across their chests (Revelation 15:5-6)

And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, the One living to the aeons of the aeons. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed. (Revelation 15:7-8)

The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. (Revelation 16:2)

The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died. (Revelation 16:3)

The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. (Revelation 16:4)

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. (Revelation 16:8)

The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done. (Revelation 16:10-11)

The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphratesand its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure airflows that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic airflows that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty… And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. (Revelation 16:12-16)

Where by the last plague, all the cities of the earth will collapse by the greatest earthquake to befall the earth, thus literally shattering the nations,

The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake… the cities of the nations collapsed… Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible. (Revelation 16:17-21)


And because from the first trumpet sound to the last bowl of wrath is only around 3 weeks is why the destruction of the second coming of the Messiah is not only sudden, but also quick, and once all the cities of the earth have been shattered, then everyone on earth will be gathered by angels, to be judged, in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, which is outside the eastern wall of Old Jerusalem,

As I looked, thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days took his seat; his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire. A river of fire issued and came out from before him. Thousands upon thousands served him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. (Daniel 7:9-10)

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. (Psalm 139:16)

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world… “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the aeonial fire prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matthew 25:31-41)

I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. (Joel 3:2)

The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who practice lawlessness. (Matthew 13:41)

He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. (Isaiah 2:4)

Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him… to the wicked person, God says: “What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips? You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you. When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers. You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit. You sit and testify against your brother and slander your own mother’s son. When you did these things and I kept silent, you thought I was exactly like you. But I now arraign you and set my accusations before you. (Psalm 50:3-21)

To then be thrown into the lake of lava in the Valley of Hinnom, which is what “Gehenna” means, for Mount Zion will also flow with lava to the north to Jerusalem, and will thus form a lake of lava outside the southern wall of old Jerusalem, which is where the punishment will take place, and lava will also flow to the south to Negev, possibly to Yatir Forest, and a river of water will also flow to the east to the Dead Sea from Mount Zion, causing it to become fresh,

…declares Yehovah, whose fire is in Zion, and whose furnace is in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 31:9)

You will throw them in a flaming furnace when you appear. Yehovah will consume them in his anger; fire will devour them. (Psalm 21:9)

But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.(Revelation 19:20)

And if your eye should cause you to stumble, cast it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into Gehenna, where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’ (Mark 9:47-48)

Yehovah, your hand is lifted high, but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame; let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them. (Isaiah 26:11)

This is how it will be at the end of the aeon. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace (Matthew 13:49-50)

“And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.” (Isaiah 66:24)

Then he brought me back to the door of the temple, and behold, water was issuing from below the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the temple faced east. The water was flowing down from below the south end of the threshold of the temple, south of the altar. Then he brought me out by way of the north gate and led me around on the outside to the outer gate that faces toward the east; and behold, the water was trickling out on the south side. Going on eastward with a measuring line in his hand, the man measured a thousand cubits, and then led me through the water, and it was ankle-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was knee-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and led me through the water, and it was waist-deep. Again he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the water had risen. It was deep enough to swim in, a river that could not be passed through. And he said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he led me back to the bank of the river. As I went back, I saw on the bank of the river very many trees on the one side and on the other. And he said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Dead Sea, and enters the sea; when the water flows into the sea, the water will become fresh. And wherever the river goes, every living creature that swarms will live, and there will be very many fish. For this water goes there, that the waters of the sea may become fresh; so everything will live where the river goes. Fishermen will stand beside the sea. From En-Gedi to En-Eglaim it will be a place for the spreading of nets. Its fish will be of very many kinds, like the fish of the Great Sea. But its swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they are to be left for salt. And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the set-apart place. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing.” (Ezekiel 47:1-12)

Son of man, set your face toward the south; preach against the south, and prophesy against the forest land in the Negev. Say to the forest of the Negev, Hear the word of Yehovah: Thus says the Master Yehovah, Behold, I will kindle a fire in you, and it shall devour every green tree in you and every dry tree. The blazing flame shall not be quenched… All flesh shall see that I Yehovah have kindled it; it shall not be quenched. (Ezekiel 20:46-48)

And then, aside from the people of God that were gathered to inherit the kingdom of the Messiah, few survivors will be left from the nations who did not die in any of the plagues nor were thrown into the lake of lava, which will be the least of the nations, such as the lame, who will simply be granted mercy to live into the thousand year rulership of the Messiah, and will multiply and become mighty nations, which will become the nations the people of God will rule over, and the earth will be filled of the knowledge of God during that time,

I will make people more rare than fine gold, and mankind than the gold of Ophir. (Isaiah 13:12)

“In that day,” declares Yehovah, “I will gather the lame; I will assemble the exiles and those I have brought to grief. I will make the lame my remnant, those driven away a strong nation. Yehovah will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and aeonially. (Micah 4:6-7)

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”  And all the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might be to our God to the aeons of the aeons! Amen.” Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 7:9-14)

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of Yehovah as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14)

They will neither harm nor destroy on all my set-apart mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of Yehovah as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11:9)

Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; the one who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere child; the one who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. (Isaiah 65:20)

See, Yehovah is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants— it will be the same for priest as for people, for the master as for his servant, for the mistress as for her servant, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. Yehovah has spoken this word. The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the earth. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the aeonial covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left. (Isaiah 24:1-6)

For Yehovah will have compassion on Jacob and will again choose Israel, and will set them in their own land, and sojourners will join them and will attach themselves to the house of Jacob. And the peoples will take them and bring them to their place, and the house of Israel will possess them in the land of Yehovah as male and female servants. They will take captive those who were their captors, and rule over those who oppressed them.
 (Isaiah 14:1-2)

I pursued my enemies and overtook them, And I did not turn back until they were consumed.I shattered them, so that they were not able to rise; They fell under my feet. For You have girded me with strength for battle; You have subdued under me those who rose up against me. You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me, And I destroyed those who hated me. They cried for help, but there was none to save, Even to Yehovah, but He did not answer them. Then I beat them fine as the dust before the airflow; I emptied them out as the mire of the streets. You have delivered me from the contentions of the people; You have placed me as head of the nations; A people whom I have not known serve me. As soon as they hear, they obey me; Foreigners submit to me. Foreigners fade away, And come trembling out of their fortresses. Yehovah lives, and blessed be my rock; And exalted be the God of my salvation, The God who executes vengeance for me, And subdues peoples under me. (Psalm 18:37-47)

An oracle concerning Egypt. Behold, Yehovah is riding on a swift cloud and comes to Egypt; and the idols of Egypt will tremble at his presence, and the heart of the Egyptians will melt within them. And I will stir up Egyptians against Egyptians, and they will fight, each against another and each against his neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom; and the airflow of the Egyptians within them will be emptied out, and I will confound their counsel; and they will inquire of the idols and the sorcerers, and the mediums and the necromancers; and I will give over the Egyptians into the hand of a hard master, and a fierce king will rule over them, declares Yehovah Master of armies… In that day the Egyptians will be like women, and tremble with fear before the hand that Yehovah of armies shakes over them. And the land of Judah will become a terror to the Egyptians. Everyone to whom it is mentioned will fear because of the purpose that Yehovah of armies has purposed against them. In that day there will be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance to Yehovah… In that day there will be an altar to Yehovah in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar to Yehovah at its border. It will be a sign and a witness to Yehovah of armies in the land of Egypt. When they cry to Yehovah because of oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and deliver them. And Yehovah will make himself known to the Egyptians, and the Egyptians will know Yehovah in that day and worship with sacrifice and offering, and they will make vows to Yehovah and perform them. And Yehovah will strike Egypt, striking and healing, and they will return to Yehovah, and he will listen to their pleas for mercy and heal them. In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and Assyria will come into Egypt, and Egypt into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be the third with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom Yehovah of armies has blessed, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance.
(Isaiah 19:1-25)

And in this way all who live in the one thousand year rulership of the Messiah will celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, for it will be the last thousand years of this heaven and this earth,

Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, Yehovah of armies, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Yehovah of armies, there will be no rain on them. And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain; which shall be the plague with which Yehovah afflicts the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. (Zechariah 14:16-18)

Before a new heaven and new earth is created,

“See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. (Isaiah 65:17)

“For as the new heavens and the new earth that I make shall remain before me, says Yehovah, so shall your offspring and your name remain. (Isaiah 66:22)

And this heaven and this earth vanishes away,

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. (Revelation 20:11)

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. (Matthew 24:35)

For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. (Matthew 5:18)

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. (Mark 13:31)

Thus making all dwellings and cities on this earth in the one thousand year rulership of the Messiah temporary places, like “tabernacles”,

So beginning with the fifteenth day of the seventh new moon, after you have gathered the crops of the land, celebrate the feast to Yehovah for seven days; the first day is a day of shabbat-rest, and the eighth day also is a day of shabbat-rest. On the first day you are to take branches from luxuriant trees–from palms, willows and other leafy trees–and rejoice before Yehovah your God for seven days. Celebrate this as a festival to Yehovah for seven days each year. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come; celebrate it in the seventh new moon. Live in tabernacles for seven days: All native-born Israelites are to live in such shelters so your descendants will know that I had the Israelites live in tabernacles when I brought them out of Egypt. I am Yehovah your God. (Leviticus 23:39-43)

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands… (Revelation 7:9)

Before coming to a permanent place, the new Jerusalem, in a new earth,

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the set-apart City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. (Revelation 21:1-3)

But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:13)
