Whatever you may think about extra-Biblical books, I will here present some information and perspective about the coming Tribulation from one of them – 2 Esdras. YHVH laid it on my heart to read this book and what I saw in it I want to pass along to you. 2 Esdras is not part of the mainstream Protestant canon but is part of some Greek Orthodox, Episcopal and Lutheran Bibles.
Here is what 2 Esdras has to say about the coming Tribulation.
2 Esdras 15:1 Behold, speak you in the ears of my people the words of prophecy, which I will put in your mouth, says the Lord:
2 Esdras 15:2 and cause you them to be written in paper: for they are faithful and true.
2 Esdras 15:3 Don’t be afraid of their imaginations against you, don’t let the unbelief of them that speak against you trouble you.
2 Esdras 15:4 For all the unbelievers shall die in their unbelief.
2 Esdras 15:5 Behold, says the Lord, I bring evils upon the whole earth; sword and famine, and death and destruction.
2 Esdras 15:6 For wickedness has prevailed over every land, and their hurtful works are come to the full.
2 Esdras 15:7 Therefore says the Lord,
2 Esdras 15:8 I will hold my peace no more as touching their wickedness, which they profanely commit, neither will I suffer them in these things, which they wickedly practice: behold, the innocent and righteous blood cries to me, and the souls of the righteous cry out continually.
I can think of no more innocent blood that that of aborted infants who may be kept alive for live dissection.
John wrote this about the Tribulation period 200 years or more after Esdras:
Revelation 6:9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been killed for the Word of God, and for the testimony of the Lamb which they had.
2 Esdras 15:9 I will surely avenge them, says the Lord, and will receive to me all the innocent blood from among them.
2 Esdras 15:10 Behold, my people is led as a flock to the slaughter: I will not suffer them now to dwell in the land of Egypt:
Psalms 44:22 Yes, for your sake we are killed all day long. We are regarded as sheep for the slaughter.
2 Esdras 15:11 but I will bring them out with a mighty hand and with a high arm, and will strike Egypt with plagues, as aforetime, and will destroy all the land thereof.
This is definitely Greater Exodus talk, Tribulation talk.
2 Esdras 15:12 Let Egypt mourn, and the foundations thereof, for the plague of the chastisement and the punishment that God shall bring upon it.
2 Esdras 15:13 Let the husbandmen that till the ground mourn: for their seeds shall fail and their trees shall be laid waste through the blasting and hail, and a terrible star.
Their GMO seeds will fail.
The blasting (or scorching that makes trees dry up) and hail are Tribulation events.
And now, what about that “terrible star”? Could that predict the planet of crossing AKA Planet X AKA Nibiru and a whole host of other names?
2 Esdras 15:14 Woe to the world and those who dwell therein!
2 Esdras 15:15 for the sword and their destruction draws near, and nation shall rise up against nation to battle with weapons in their hands.
Yeshua said this in Matthew 24:7.
2 Esdras 15:16 For there shall be sedition among men; and waxing strong one against another, they shall not regard their king nor the chief of their great ones, in their might.
2 Esdras 15:17 For a man shall desire to go into a city, and shall not be able.
Isaiah 33:8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth: he hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man.
2 Esdras 15:18 For because of their pride the cities shall be troubled, the houses shall be destroyed, and men shall be afraid.
2 Esdras 15:19 A man shall have no pity upon his neighbor [so don’t expect help from anyone, even those close to you because Yeshua said everyone would turn on each other], but shall make an assault on their houses with the sword, and plunder their goods, because of the lack of bread, and for great tribulation.
2 Esdras 15:20 Behold, says God, I call together all the kings of the earth, to stir up those who are from the rising of the sun, from the south, from the east, and Libanus [Mount Lebanon]; to turn themselves one against another, and repay the things that they have done to them.
2 Esdras 15:21 Just as they do yet this day to my chosen, so I will do also, and recompense in their bosom. Thus says the Lord God:
2 Esdras 15:22 My right hand shall not spare the sinners, and my sword shall not cease over those who shed innocent blood upon the earth.
2 Esdras 15:23 And a fire is gone forth from his wrath, and has consumed the foundations of the earth, and the sinners, like the straw that is kindled.
2 Esdras 15:24 Woe to those who sin, and keep not my commandments! says the Lord.
2 Esdras 15:25 I will not spare them: go your way, you rebellious children, defile not my sanctuary.
2 Esdras 15:26 For the Lord knows all those who trespass against him, therefore has he delivered them to death and destruction.
2 Esdras 15:27 For now are the evils come upon the whole earth, and you shall remain in them: for God shall not deliver you, because you have sinned against him.
2 Esdras 15:28 Behold, a vision horrible, and the appearance thereof from the east!
2 Esdras 15:29 And the nations of the dragons of Arabia shall come out with many chariots, and from the day that they set forth the hissing of them is carried over the earth, so that all they which shall hear them may fear also and tremble.
2 Esdras 15:30 Also the Carmonians [Medes and Persians, those we know as Iran and Iraq today] raging in wrath shall go forth as the wild boars of the wood, and with great power shall they come, and join battle with them [with the dragons – China and all who join China], and shall waste a portion of the land of the Assyrians with their teeth.
2 Esdras 15:31 And then shall the dragons have the upper hand, remembering their nature; and if they shall turn themselves, conspiring together in great power to persecute them,
2 Esdras 15:32 then these shall be troubled, and keep silence through their power, and shall turn and flee.
2 Esdras 15:33 And from the land of the Assyrians shall the lier in wait besiege them, and consume one of them, and upon their army shall be fear and trembling, and sedition against their kings.
2 Esdras 15:34 Behold, clouds from the east and from the north to the south, and they are very horrible to look upon, full of wrath and storm.
2 Esdras 15:35 They shall dash one against another, and they shall pour out a plentiful storm upon the earth, even their own star; and there shall be blood from the sword to the horse’s belly,
2 Esdras 15:36 and to the thigh of man, and to the camel’s hough.
2 Esdras 15:37 And there shall be fearfulness and great trembling upon earth: and they that see that wrath shall be afraid, and trembling shall take hold upon them.
2 Esdras 15:38 And after this shall there be stirred up great storms from the south, and from the north, and another part from the west.
2 Esdras 15:39 And strong winds shall arise from the east, and shall shut it up, even the cloud which he raised up in wrath; and the star that was to cause destruction by the east wind shall be violently driven toward the south and west.
2 Esdras 15:40 And great clouds and mighty and full of wrath shall be lifted up, and the star, that they may destroy all the earth, and those who dwell therein; and they shall pour out over every high and eminent one a terrible star,
2 Esdras 15:41 fire, and hail, and flying swords, and many waters, that all plains may be full, and all rivers, with the abundance of those waters.
That star, wormwood or whatever else this might be, will certainly wreak havoc.
2 Esdras 15:42 And they shall break down the cities and walls, mountains and hills, trees of the wood, and grass of the meadows, and their corn.
2 Esdras 15:43 And they shall go on steadfastly to Babylon, and destroy her.
2 Esdras 15:44 They shall come to her, and compass her about; the star and all wrath shall they pour out upon her: then shall the dust and smoke go up to the heaven, and all those who are about her shall bewail her.
Hey! This sounds like Revelation 18!
2 Esdras 15:45 And those who remain shall do service to those who have put her in fear.
2 Esdras 15:46 And you, Asia, that are partaker in the beauty of Babylon, and in the glory of her person:
2 Esdras 15:47 woe to you, you wretch, because you have made yourself like to her; you have decked your daughters in whoredom, that they might please and glory in your lovers, which have always desired you to commit whoredom withal!
This language is what YHVH said about Jerusalem throughout His prophets.
2 Esdras 15:48 You have followed her that is hateful in all her works and inventions: therefore says God,
Inventions? COVID vaccine invention?
2 Esdras 15:49 I will send evils upon you; widowhood, poverty, famine, sword, and pestilence, to waste your houses to destruction and death.
But Jerusalem says, I will not be a widow; I will sit as queen, I will see no sorrow – Revelation 18:7.
2 Esdras 15:50 And the glory of your power shall be dried up as a flower, when the heat shall arise that is sent over you.
2 Esdras 15:51 You shall be weakened as a poor woman with stripes, and as one chastened with wounds, so that your mighty ones and your lovers you shall not be able to receive.
When I read this, all I could think of was the Statue of Liberty and the striped flag of the daughter of Babylon, America.
2 Esdras 15:52 Would I with jealousy have so proceeded against you, says the Lord,
2 Esdras 15:53 if you had not always slain my chosen, exalting the stroke of your hands, and saying over their dead, when you were drunken,
2 Esdras 15:54 Set forth the beauty of your countenance?
2 Esdras 15:55 The reward of a harlot shall be in your bosom, therefore shall you receive recompense.
Jerusalem, Mystery Babylon, is the Great Harlot.
2 Esdras 15:56 Just as you shall do to my chosen, says the Lord, even so shall God do to you, and shall deliver you into mischief.
2 Esdras 15:57 And your children shall die of hunger, and you shall fall by the sword: and your cities shall be broken down, and all your shall perish by the sword in the field.
Children dying of hunger does not pertain to just Jerusalem or Israel the whore. It also pertains to the children of Jerusalem’s daughter, America and her western allies, who form the core of the scattered Ephraimites.
2 Esdras 15:58 And those who are in the mountains shall die of hunger, and eat their own flesh, and drink their own blood, for very hunger of bread, and thirst of water.
2 Esdras 15:59 You unhappy above all shall come and shall again receive evils.
2 Esdras 15:60 And in the passage they shall rush on the idle city, and shall destroy some portion of your land, and mar part of your glory, and shall return again to Babylon that was destroyed.
2 Esdras 15:61 And you shall be cast down by them as stubble, and they shall be to you as fire;
2 Esdras 15:62 and shall devour you, and your cities, your land, and your mountains; all your woods and your fruitful trees shall they burn up with fire.
2 Esdras 15:63 They shall carry your children away captive, and shall plunder your wealth, and mar the glory of your face.
Esdras is likely painting a true picture of the wrath to come on scattered Israel, Jerusalem, Israel (Mystery Babylon) and then on the whole world.
