Tunguska Event, was this the day Satan was thrown down to earth and the Four Horses Of The Apocalypse released?
This is a theory of mine I have had for a few years now, maybe a mad theory at that but I would love to share it with you. I have no evidence whatsoever to base my theory on fact, however, Bible prophecy and global events tend to lean toward Satan being thrown down to earth and the Four Horses Of The Apocalypse released somewhere before 1914. I will explain later.
According to Wikipedia, the Tunguska event was a massive ~12 megaton explosion that occurred near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in Yeniseysk Governorate (now Krasnoyarsk Krai), Russia, on the morning of June 30, 1908. The explosion over the sparsely populated Eastern Siberian Taiga flattened an estimated 80 million trees over an area of 2,150 km2 (830 sq mi) of forest.
The explosion is generally attributed to a meteor airburst: the atmospheric explosion of a stony meteoroid about 50–60 metres (160–200 feet) in size. The meteoroid approached from the east-southeast, and likely with a relatively high speed of about 27 km/s. It is classified as an impact event, even though no impact crater has been found and no meteor fragments; the object is thought to have disintegrated at an altitude of 5 to 10 kilometres (3 to 6 miles) rather than to have hit the surface of the Earth. The Tunguska event is the largest impact event on Earth in recorded history. An explosion of this magnitude would be capable of destroying a large metropolitan area.
There are quite a few problems with the meteor theory!
On 30 June 1908, at around 07:17 local time, Evenki natives and Russian settlers in the hills north-west of Lake Baikal south-east Siberia, observed a column of bluish light, brighter than the Sun, the bright light was moving across the sky very fast, reported to be about 27 kilometres per second. About ten minutes later, a blinding flash with a massive explosion was followed by a sound similar to artillery fire. (why would it take ten minutes for a comet or meteor to reach the ground travelling so fast?)
The artillery sounds were accompanied by a shock wave that knocked people off their feet and broke windows hundreds of kilometres away. The explosion registered at seismic stations across Eurasia and airwaves from the blast was detected in Germany, Denmark, Croatia, the UK, and as far away as Jakarta and Washington, D.C. It is estimated that, in some places, the resulting shock wave was equivalent to an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter magnitude scale.
Over the next few days, night skies in Asia and Europe were aglow, with contemporaneous reports of photographs being successfully taken at midnight in both Sweden and Scotland. Hundreds of eyewitnesses speak of columns of fire and smoke, which is similar to how Jehovah guided His people out of Egypt as told in Exodus. Other witnesses claim two columns of fire emanated from near the Tunguska Body after it approached the ground, the two columns of clouds and smoke gave off rainbow-like bands of light, remarkably similar to the description of an angelic manifestation mentioned in the bible, in A Revelation To John, 10:1.
Other witnesses claim they saw a ufo or a cylindrical object. If this Tunguska event was the all-powerful fallen angel, the Devil, it would need a mighty angel to throw him down, Michael maybe? The explosion over the sparsely populated Eastern Siberian Taiga flattened 2,000 square kilometres (770 square miles) of the forest, yet the enormous blast, thought to be the biggest ever on our planet caused no known human casualties.
If the devil was thrown down to Earth after a war in heaven as is claimed in Revelation, 12:9, and the Four Horsemen were also released there must be evidence here on Earth, the devil would surely not come here unannounced and if he was thrown down here, he must have caused some fireworks wouldn't you think? After all, he is said to be roaming the earth like a roaring lion.
Just six years later the world unexpectedly change forever
Was there ever a moment in history when something happened, a “paradigm shift,” an important change when the usual way of thinking about or doing something is changed forever and replaced by a new and different way which not only changed the world we live in but changed mankind and also the way we thought. Well, of course, hundreds, probably thousands throughout the history of mankind, especially since 2020 but that is another story for another time. Was there ever a moment in time when a whole plethora of paradigm shifts happened, together, simultaneously, changing the way we even perceive our world - forever?
Yes, the trigger which released this chain of events that led to a "RESET," to a ”brave new world” is embroiled deep in a conspiracy just as Pearl Harbour, the assassination of JFK and 9/11.
On the morning of Sunday, June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir presumptive to the Austrian - Hungarian Empire accompanied by his wife Sophie in a motorcade driven through the streets of Sarajevo which was then the capital of the Austro - Hungarian province of Bosnia Herzegovina and had recently been annexed by the Austrian - Hungarian Empire. Earlier in the day, the couple had been attacked by Nedeljko Čabrinović, a Serb who had thrown a grenade at their motorcade in their first attempt at a ceremonial drive through the city. However, the bomb detonated behind them, injuring the occupants in the following car.
Incredibly, after a short rest at the Governor's residence, the royal couple insisted on seeing all those who had been injured by the bomb at the local hospital. As the motorcade resumed it drove slowly through the waiting crowds to the hospital, however, the “local driver” somehow made a wrong turn. As the cars backed down the street and onto a side street, the line of cars stalled. At this same time, a Serbian student called Princip who was waiting across the street with a handgun grabbed his opportunity and assassinated the Duke and his wife Sophie.
How could this happen?
Thousands of people lined the streets of Sarajevo to see the Duke and his wife yet only 36 policemen were on duty that day. The local Sarajevo police had been given the day off to celebrate St Vitus, a local holiday and they were not trusted by the Austro - Hungarian military anyway. No soldiers of the empire were present as they were on manoeuvres. (Is this beginning to sound familiar?) The consequent investigation discovered ten assassins lined the route of the motorcade and there was much speculation the local driver had been paid to make a wrong turn on the way to the hospital. Why was Archduke Ferdinand even allowed to carry on with the motorcade after the attempt on his life earlier with the hand grenade, when so few police were there to protect them? It is a popular belief the Germans and the Austrians planned the entire episode to start WWI which is exactly what transpired. Exactly one month later WWI began and opened a whole new chapter in warfare, our world was about to change forever!.
Many influential people have since claimed the world changed forever in the year 1914. One of my favourite writers, George Orwell, wrote in his book, Coming Up For Air: "People living up to 1914 had something never prevalent again, ever, after 1914.”
Orwell continued; "Before 1914 people didn't think of the future as something to be terrified of as we do now, and life was “not” softer then, on the contrary, life was much harsher." "Yes, people, on the whole, worked much harder, more people were living in poverty but life was much better somehow." "It's like they had a peace of mind, a feeling of security, they didn't know “the order of things could ever be changed” and nearly everyone had a religious belief and went to church." "And then boom, something changes the world, everything, forever.”
It is hard to imagine how one destructive action from a poor desperate teenager could bring the world to its knees and change it forever, causing an unprecedented global chain reaction, a chain reaction of such devastation that Jesus Himself warned us all to prepare for, 2,000 years earlier in Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13.
So, on 28 June 1914, a young 19-year-old, Gavrilo Princip, a Serb student, assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg. That one insane moment caused an unprecedented global implosion which set off a chain of events that had never occurred in the history of mankind and is still reverberating around the world today.
An escalation that our world has never fully recovered from and which set the trend in which we find ourselves today, nearly 8 billion people living on a dying planet with a society hellbent on the verge of destroying itself. Let's just look at the warning Jesus foretold around 2,000 years ago when he answered His disciples’ question in Mark 13: 4, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are all about to be fulfilled?”
Jesus answered: for there will be wars and rumours of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for these things must take place, but the end is not yet.
For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place and another. All these things are the beginning of pangs of distress. Matthew 24: 6-8.
In Luke 21:1, we are also told of pestilences and great signs and fearful sights from heaven. How does 1914 link up to Jesus’s warning in Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13? Let’s break it down.
Wars, as you know have always happened since the beginning of time, great wars, all history is built on the back of wars from the beginning of time, however, what began on July 28, 1914, and ended on the 11 of November 1918 had never happened on such a scale before, no, not even close. For the first time in the history of mankind, a war so great had to be deemed a “World War, or the Great War.” For the first time in history, a “global war” erupted on the scale of what had never before occurred in human history.
A war that saw millions of young men cut down by man-made industrial machines, chemicals in the form of mustard gas and mega-size bombs. WWI butchered around 40 million people in just 4 years. History had changed forever, the direction of the world’s future had been altered. The roaring lion was roaming the earth.
More wars and food shortages
While the world was still at war, one of the bloodiest of all revolts exploded, a war within a war you could say. In 1917 the Russian Revolution began. It is thought approximately 12 million people died during the Russian revolution, mostly poor people. Many died from famine. (For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place and another.)
There will be food shortages and pestilences. Matthew 24.
As the end of WWI approached, something similar to what our world is now facing descended on an unsuspecting public who were on the verge of celebrating the end of a devastating war; A new global pandemic systematically caught the world unaware. The Spanish flu. It started in the US and killed tens of millions of people around the world. It is thought as many as 500 million people were infected, one-third of the entire world population at that time and it is estimated more than 100 million died, more than double the number of people who died in WWI.
More Food shortages.
As the world slowly recovered from the unprecedented deaths of millions from wars, famine and pestilence the world took yet another hit, just ten years after WWI ended and seven years after the Spanish flu died off, the world was once again caught unaware. This time it was ‘The Great Depression.’ The Great Depression started in 1929 in the US but soon reverberated around the world, lasting until the late 1930s. Poverty and famine crippled much of the world's population. Millions of jobs around the world were lost, hunger and starvation were the new killers, it is estimated The Great Depression killed around 120 million people.
In 1936 the Spanish Civil War began although half a million people died it was just a slideshow as to what was coming. By September 1, 1939, the world was at war again. The Second World War was even more destructive than the first. More sophisticated machines had been developed, aeroplanes provided a new horror, aerial bombardments of the innocent people which destroyed whole cities. After 6 years of bloody warfare, new horrible technology was introduced. The US brought Japan to its knees with two “nuclear bombs” which destroyed two major Japanese cities and killed hundreds of thousands of innocent people in a couple of days.
Some estimates place the total number of deaths, due to wars and armed conflicts since 1914, at nearly 300 million! Others would say 500 million.
More food shortages
Food rationing was so severe during the two World Wars that millions of people died from starvation. During the first World War, the German people were put on severe food rationing after First World War the German economy imploded, a wheelbarrow full of money was needed just to buy a loaf of bread.
According to " The Harvest of Sorrow: Soviet Collectivization and the Terror Famine," around 14.5 million people died of starvation in the Great Famine of 1932-33, also known as Holodomor. During the Second World War the Dutch people were so hungry they resorted to eating tulips while Germans and Russians along the Eastern Front died in their millions due to cold and starvation. The British people suffered food rationing well into the 1950s as a result of WWII.
The Great Chinese Famine is widely regarded as the deadliest famine and one of the greatest man-made disasters in human history, with an estimated death toll due to starvation that ranges in the tens of millions (15 to 55 million). Since 1914, it is thought more than 100 million people have died due to famines during the 20th and 21st centuries.
Back to Luke 21
Now, Jesus mentioned, “earthquakes in one place and another” and “great signs and fearful sights from heaven.” Indeed earthquakes did happen back then in the days of Jesus but He was clearly giving a warning to a future generation and that generation was most probably this one, the people living today, let me explain. The average number of major quakes, mag 6 or higher during WWI and just after averaged around “15 or so a year,” not really a global threat by any means. Directly after WWI major quakes, (mag 6 or higher) began climbing to a peak of 74 in the year 1934 which was the yearly record of the 20th century at the time. According to data from the USGS website, for some unexplained reason, the number of major quakes dropped drastically during the 2nd World War.
However, something incredible happened a few years after WWII, a string of events that not only triggered the space race and resulted in the formation of NASA but also created the unimaginable idea of bringing the USSR and US space experts together on the same page smack-bang in the middle of a cold-war. How could this happen?
During the ‘50s seismic activity suddenly and inexplicitly exploded around the world, just as Jesus had promised it would 2,000 years earlier. During the ‘40s the average number of major quakes (mag 6 or higher) per year was 35, however, in 1950 that amount suddenly spiked to an incredible 138, 100 more than the 1940s average but it didn’t stop! The next year, 1951 the annual record was smashed again when 151 major quakes were recorded. In 1952 the record was smashed yet again when 181 major quakes (mag 6 or higher) were recorded. Then incredibly during 1957, our star recorded a record-breaking number of sunspots in one year, delivering another prophecy from Jesus, “great signs and fearful sights from heaven.” And in that very same year, a new record was smashed when 204 major quakes (mag 6 or higher) were recorded, see graph below.
“Earthquakes in one place and another” and “great signs and fearful sights from heaven.” Graph Gary Walton, data USGS.
And more importantly, does the devil's arrival here on Earth and the release of the four horsemen match up with the prophecy of Daniel? Daniel, reveals information that would make it possible to pinpoint the time when Jesus would begin His kingdom in heaven. If we could match all these three up, we would know just where we are in the history of Christianity and how close we really are to the return of Jesus? So is there a link to the arrival of the devil, the release of the four horsemen and Daniel's seven times prophecy to within a year or two? I think there is.
The Four Horses Of The Apocalypse
We know from the Bible, in Revelation 6:1-8 Jesus opens one of the seven seals releasing four horsemen, three of whom bring destruction to the whole world, the first horse, however, is white and its rider is, some say, a glorious, newly crowned king, this is King Jesus ruling his new kingdom in heaven, other believe the white horse rider to be the antichrist?
Behind Him comes a horse the colour of fire, the red horse bearing a rider who is to take peace away from all the earth. Another follows, a third horse, black as night, carrying a rider who holds aloft a pair of scales he is the one who will bring famine to the world. The fourth horse is a sickly pale colour, a harbinger of disease and other lethal threats, ridden by Death itself, the grave, the common grave of mankind, follows closely, reaping a terrible harvest of lives on a scale never before seen on our planet! Now, people with a Bible understanding agree, that is quite clear and easy to understand but, when is this suppose to happen, it doesn't say when in the Bible does it? Jesus merely tells Christians to stay awake and be observant and He gives a few clues as to watch out for. But there is a clue, the white horse is released when Jesus opens the first of the seven seals, and the rider of the white horse is sent out conquering and to complete his conquest, does this pre-date 1914?
The fiery red horse
So for my theory to become believable, the four horsemen would have to be released sometime after 1908, after the Tunguska event. Ok, we know the red rider represents warfare. For the first time ever in world history, peace was taken away from not just a few nations but globally. In 1914, for the first time in history, a global war erupted a war on such a bloody scale, the like of which had never before occurred in human history. A war that saw millions of young men cut down by man-made machines and chemicals.
"It was closely followed by a second world war, which was even more destructive. Some estimates place the total number of deaths due to wars and armed conflicts since 1914 at more than 200 million!
Today the world holds its breath as billions of people fear WWIII.
The Black Horse
Ok, onto the third rider, the black horse. The black horse represents famine. And we can conclude here a picture of food rationing so severe during the two world wars that many people died of starvation, during the second world war the Dutch people were so hungry they resorted to eating tulips, Germans and Russians along the eastern front died in their millions due to starvation. The British people suffered food rationing well into the 1950s as a result of WWII. Since 1914, it is thought about 100 million people have died due to famines during the 20th and 21st centuries. One authority estimated that more than one billion people about one-eighth of the world population were chronically undernourished in 2012-2025. As climate change increases, droughts, flooding, heatwaves are destroying crops on a record scale, killing cattle and fish by the million which in a short time will affect us all.
The Pale Horse
The pale horse represents death due to plague and other causes. As the end of WWI approached, the Spanish flu killed tens of millions. It is thought as many as 500 million people were infected, one-third of the entire world population then and it's thought 100 million died, more than twice the amount who died during the fighting in WWI! However, the Spanish flu was just the beginning, experts estimate that hundreds of millions died of smallpox during the 20th century. To this day, the lives of millions are cut short by AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria and cancer, despite intensive medical research. At the moment, hundreds of thousands of people are dying from superbugs, antibiotic-resistant bacteria due to the overuse of antibiotics.
Daniel's link to 1914
Death has dominated man since 1914, whether due to war, famine, or plague. But there is more, much more, Bible chronology indicating God’s Kingdom was established in heaven in 1914, this is shown by a prophecy recorded in chapter 4 of the Bible book of Daniel. God's Kingdom is what we all pray for in the Lord's Prayer. God’s heavenly government will replace all other governments here on Earth.
More than 2,500 years ago God was so disgusted with the behaviour of his chosen people the Jews, he decided to punish them after he had warned them many many times about their bad and immoral behaviour. Because of the Israelites’ disobedience, God allowed them to be conquered by the Babylonians, way back in 607 B.C.E. From that time on, no more kings represented Jehovah in Jerusalem. So 607 B.C.E. marked the beginning of what the Bible claims as the seven times or the period when God’s rulership would be interrupted. At the end of the seven times, God would install a new ruler to represent Him, this time, someone in heaven.
That’s when the other prophecies we read about in Daniel would be fulfilled. We know the seven times started in 607 BC but the big question now is: When did the seven times end? If we can answer that question, we will know when the new, God’s Kingdom will begin in Heaven. During his earthly ministry, Jesus indicated that the seven times had not yet ended, so they must be a very long period of time. The seven times started hundreds of years before Jesus came to earth in 607 B.C.E, and they continued until sometime after he returned to heaven. Scholars of the Bible have examined this and other prophecies very carefully and come to the conclusion that the seven times would end in the year 1914 and major world events since then confirm that 1914 was indeed the year that God’s Kingdom began ruling in heaven.
It was the year when this world entered its last days or the time of the end. There are many more clues, Matthew 24, and Luke 21 both highlight the end-times, Jesus's disciples asked Him when will we know the conclusion of this system of things? Jesus replied, in Matthew 24:6, you are going to hear of wars and reports of wars, see that you are not alarmed, for these things must take place, but the end is not yet. Jesus continued, for the nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another. ( In 1914, 7 quakes of M6 or higher were recorded, in 2014, 155 were recorded and they are still rising), all these events are the beginning of pangs of distress.
King Nebuchadnezzar and his strange dream
So how did Bible scholars come to believe that the seven times would end in the year 1914? Chapter 4 of Daniel: King Nebuchadnezzar the mighty king of Babylon had a disturbing dream about a giant tree, Daniel was asked by the King to explain the dream. Daniel concluded the great tree represented King Nebuchadnezzar himself. The gigantic tree was figuratively ‘chopped down in the dream by God himself but God did not kill the tree, so, the dream meaning was, Nebuchadnezzar reign would be cut short for seven years.
Months later, King Nebuchadnezzar temporarily lost his sanity and kingship for a period of seven years, which can be found in Daniel 4:25. When God restored his sanity, Nebuchadnezzar regained his throne allowing God's prophecy to come true. But as in many Bible prophecies, the dream had a double meaning. What does the tree of Daniel chapter 4 represent? In the Bible, trees sometimes represent rulership. In the greater fulfilment of the Daniel chapter 4 prophecy, the immense tree in Nebuchadnezzar's dream symbolizes God’s rulership too.
So what could the tree being chopped down mean? The chopping down of the tree represented an interruption in Nebuchadnezzar’s kingship, which was later restored by God after 7 times, but, the 7 times is also represented as an interruption in God’s rulership here on Earth.
When Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem, which God allowed as a punishment to the Jews for their terrible behaviour, the kings of Israel were actually representatives of God himself. The seven times represent the period during which God allowed the nations to rule over the earth without interference from God Himself. So the “seven times” which God allowed without interference from any kingdom began in October 607 B.C.E., when, according to Bible chronology, Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians.
How Long Are The Seven Times?
The “seven times” of Jehovah's absence could not merely be seen as the seven years as is the case in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, no, Jesus indicated the answer when he said that “Jerusalem, God's earthly throne, would be trampled on by the nations until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled, which can be found in Luke 21:24. The appointed times of the nations, which began in 607 B.C.E., were still underway even when Jesus was on the earth and many many years after too. As ever we can find the answer in the Bible to help us to determine the length of those prophetic, seven times. In Revelation 12:6, a woman is fed and protected for a time, times and a half of a time which was termed to be 1,260 days. (The woman represents Old Testament Israel and New Testament Christians who God had dressed in honour and splendour (Ezekiel 16). Applying the prophetic rule “a day for a year,” the 1,260 days would, therefore, represent 1,260 years. Now back to Revelation 6: 14. But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman so that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is to be fed for a time and times and half a time away from the face of the serpent, time times and half a time is half of 7 times. Time is 360 days = 360 years, times are 720 days = 720 years and half a time is 180 days = 180 years, add them together = 1260 years, so if 3.1/2 times is 1260 years, the 7 times must be 2,520 years. Therefore, the “seven times, mentioned in Daniel 4” which would then be 2,520 years, from 607 B.C.E would end in 1914., Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6.
An easy cross-reference is adding 606 years BC and 1,914 years AD, we get 2,520 years. If we take 2,520 away from 1914 we arrive at the year 606 B.C.E. The Common Era started at year 1, not year zero so the actual year is 607, B.C.E.
Nebuchadnezzar's other dream
Nebuchadnezzar had another dream and once again Daniel was summoned to explain the dream to the King. Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of an enormous statue with a head of gold, the statue's chest and arms were made of silver, its stomach and thighs were made of copper, its legs were of iron and its feet were mixed with iron and clay. God cut a huge stone from a mountain, which he threw and it struck the feet of the statue. The statue was crushed into powder and blew away in the wind, and the stone became a large mountain, and it filled the earth. Daniel explained the dream to King Nebuchadnezzar:
Your kingdom is the head of gold, the silver chest and arms is a kingdom that will come after you and rule the world, then there will be another nation, one like copper, which will rule over the whole earth, the next kingdom will be strong like iron and will rule the world, finally, there will be a divided kingdom with some parts strong like iron and some parts weak like clay. The stone that becomes a mountain is God’s Kingdom and will crush all these kingdoms and will last forever.
Nebuchadnezzar's rule was the golden head of the statue which was followed by silver chest and arms, this was Cyrus, King of the Medio Persian Empire, the copper stomach and thighs was the empire of Alexander the great, the legs of iron was the Roman Empire, the final empire would rise from a kingdom captured by the Romans and that was the British Empire, the biggest empire ever, one in four people were under British rule at the turn of the 20th century.
"But by 1914 the British Empire was strained, nations under the rule of Britain were fighting for independence and by WWII it was almost gone, although many scholars believe the empire is still represented today by an Anglo American Empire. So we are down to iron feet mixed with clay and teetering on the brink and waiting for God's huge stone to smash the fragile statue ending this lousy system of things.
