In the last three teachings of this series, Dr. Don G. Pickney has taken us into the very intimate relationship between God and His elect people as individual believers in Christ. In this teaching, however, he broadens the view of what the event called in biblical scripture, The Day of Jehovah Tsaba (Lord of hosts) looks like in comparison to other biblical events.
He makes this observation, "There are only five (5) divine "Global Events" in the revelation of the Earth (past, present & future). Imagine ONLY FIVE! They are: (1) The original creation of Earth; (2) Noah's flood; (3) The Rapture (Catching away of the Church to Heaven); (4) The Millennial (1,000 year) Reign of Christ with His Family and Kingdom on the earth; and one that has been skipped by Bible prophecy teachers and end-time pundits: (5) The Day of Jehovah Tsaba -- a shaking of ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH to bring about a great wealth conversion in which the world gives up its gold and silver treasures, and control of its riches, as God's great orchestrating Arm brings it to the Church. This global event, is proven in scripture to be THE GREATEST THINGS GOD HAS ORCHESTRATED SINCE HE CREATED ADAM ON THE EARTH!
As Pastor Don begins moves into this part of the series, He focuses on interesting facts about the creation of planet Earth. You may find some of your previous biblical ideas challenged as he exposes truth from God's Word.
He introduces Earth from Revelation 12:1 as "Mother Earth," an expression now used by modern science, as well as "New Age" followers. But is it possible that they were only "copying" the scriptures in their use of this analogy? Here is an excerpt of the teaching:
"Revelation, Chapter 12, is a Kaleidoscope of symbolic pictures of the prehistoric period in which God created the foundation of Earth (the globe or sphere, the ball made up of metals, minerals, with a separate backward rotating center of hot molten materials). Maybe, as a believer, you haven't considered it, but God has not chosen to give us biblical information, describing the original creation of Earth. We pick up the revelation of creation during the period of creation when God created Adam and Eve. He did so with His divine Hand: He shaped and formed Adam out of the dust of the Earth before breathing into Him the breath of life. He then took a rib from Adam and created Eve, giving them 'procreative power," an empowerment to bring forth the race of man to multiply and fill the earth with humanity.
But during the "week of creation," just prior to creating Adam, God created man's habitat, what we know of today as the world. Our revelation begins in Revelation, Chapter Twelve:
Rev 12:1-2 NLT "Then I witnessed in heaven an event of great significance. I saw a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon beneath her feet, and a crown of twelve stars on her head. (2) She was pregnant, and she cried out because of her labor pains and the agony of giving birth."
It is interesting that this scripture, in depicting symbolically the appearance in history of the earth, mentions "a crown of twelve stars on her head." The following information is scientifically explains:
"12 Gravitationally Bound Satellite Galaxies

Strange satellite galaxies revealed around Milky Way

Astronomers have discovered two new satellite galaxies of the Milky Way... The recent discoveries bring the crown of Milky Way satellite galaxies identified to a dozen."
It is significant that Revelations symbolism describes Earth and the Genesis creation as "a woman... pregnant and giving birth."
In this teaching Dr. Don G. Pickney explores that concept in the Genesis description, i.e.Gen. 1:11-12, 20-21 "And God said, Let the earth BRING FORTH grass... and the earth BROUGHT FORTH grass... And God said, Let the waters BRING FORTH abundantly the moving creature that hath life...And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters BROUGHT FORTH abundantly, after their kind..."
Pastor Don draws a correlation between the Revelations depiction of earth as giving birth to creation, and the Genesis account that God gave the planet Earth the ability to BRING FORTH what we know today as God's created world. God gave the Earth the ability to "birth" that which has come forth as trees, animals, etc., while He personally, intimately fashioned humanity Adam and Eve were created.
