Sand Boils

Sand boils create flood hazards for those around the Mississippi and New Madrid Fault regions.

The Midwest is known for its wheat production. 

I am not sure how much flooding would, or will, occur, but this will not only affect human well being, which is the primary concern, but also the wheat supply for the nation, if it is bad enough.

From Wikipedia

Sand boils or Sand Volcanoes[1] occur when water under pressure wells up through a bed of sand. The water looks like it is "boiling" up from the bed of sand, hence the name.

Sand boils can be a mechanism contributing to levee failure during floods.

This effect is caused by a difference in pressure on two sides of a levee or dike, most likely during a flood.

This process can result in piping, whereby the removal of soil particles results in a pipe through the embankment.

The creation of the pipe will quickly pick up pace and will eventually result in failure of the embankment.

A sand boil is difficult to stop. The most effective method is by creating a body of water above the boil to create enough pressure to slow the flow of water.

A slower flow will not be able to move soil particles. The body of water is often created with sandbags forming a ring around the boil[2].

During the 1989 earthquake in San Francisco, sand boils brought up debris from the 1906 earthquake. This process is a result of liquefaction.

The New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-12

http://www.new-madrid.mo.us/index.aspx?nid=132

Other physical manifestations associated with the earthquakes:

Sand Boils


The world’s largest sand boil was created by the New Madrid earthquake.

It is 1.4 miles long and 136 acres in extent, located in the Bootheel of Missouri, about 8 miles west of Hayti, Missouri.

Seismic Tar Balls

Small pellets up to golf ball sized tar balls are found in sand boils and fissures.

They are petroleum that has been solidified, or “petroliferous nodules.”

Earthquake Lights


Lights flashed from the ground, caused by quartz crystals being squeezed.

The phenomena is called “seismoluminescence.”

Warm Water

Water thrown up by an earthquake was lukewarm.

It is speculated that the shaking caused the water to heat up and/or quartz light heated the water.

Earthquake Smog

The skies turned dark during the earthquakes, so dark that lighted lamps didn’t help.

The air smelled bad, and it was hard to breathe.

It is speculated that it was smog containing dust particles caused by the eruption of warm water into cold air.

Loud Thunder

Sounds of distant thunder and loud explosions accompanied the earthquakes.

Animal Warnings

People reported strange behavior by animals before the earthquakes.

They were nervous and excited.

Domestic animals became wild, and wild animals became tame. Snakes came out of the ground from hibernation.

Flocks of ducks and geese landed near people.

Tecumseh’s Comet and the Battle of Tippecanoe

**Notice the relationship between the comet and the earthquake.

clip_image010

The earthquakes were preceded by the appearance of a great comet, which was visible around the globe for seventeen months, and was at its brightest during the earthquakes.

The comet, with an orbit of 3,065 years, was last seen during the time of Ramses II in Egypt.

In 1811-1812, it was called “Tecumseh’s Comet” (or “Napoleon’s Comet” in Europe).

Tecumseh was a Shawnee Indian leader whose name meant “Shooting Star” or “He who walks across the sky.”

He was given this name at birth. A great orator and military leader, Tecumseh organized a confederation of Indian tribes to oppose the takeover of 3 million acres of Indian lands, which were obtained by the Treaty of Fort Wayne in 1809.

His brother, a religious leader called “The Prophet,” had gained fame when he foretold the total eclipse of the sun on June 16, 1806. (They had learned about it in advance from a team of visiting astronomers.)

During this time, the Governor of Indiana Territory William Henry Harrison–worried about The Prophet’s popularity–had challenged him to produce a miracle.

After the day of the “Black Sun” the brothers had no trouble attracting followers.

A Black Sun was said to predict a future war.

On September 17, 1811 there was another solar eclipse—which, again, was predicted by The Prophet.

The brothers’ center of operations was at Prophet’s Town, located near the junction of the Wabash and Tippecanoe Rivers in northern Indiana.

Tecumseh was traveling and recruiting warriors among the southeastern tribes, when Governor Harrison attacked Prophet’s Town with over a 1,000 men on November 6, 1811, a pre-emptive strike by the U. S., which marked the beginning of “Tecumseh’s War.”

On December 16th, when the earthquakes began, Tecumseh was at the Shawnee and Delaware Indian villages near Cape Girardeau, 50 miles north of the epicenter at New Madrid.

The earthquakes continued as he traveled back to Prophet’s Town, arriving there in February, 1812. Tecumseh’s followers lost the Battle of Tippecanoe, but they continued to fight as allies of the British during the War of 1812 between the United States and Great Britain.

Tecumseh was killed in battle in Canada in 1813. He is honored as one of the greatest of Indian leaders, both in the United States, and in Canada, where he is considered a national hero.

Marianne’s Note:

As the birth pangs of the Messiah continue, it is an obligation of every true believer to come to the aid of one’s brethren and fellow man in general.

As we show mercy, God will show us mercy, when it is our time to experience hardships.

As it is said, “this is a test.”

Time for prayer, fasting, seeking God, and reaching out to others, and giving God all the glory.

  4. The sand boiling reminds me of the water oozing up in Japan from the ground during the earthquake. We are so close to the tribulation! This is all tribulation stuff going on, the beginning of the sorrows. And this is just the beginning! The Lord will shorten the days for the Elect’s sake, He has too! I’m barely making it through now. I’m having such a difficult time with illness issues, that devil is really casting out the floods!!! I just make it through one day at a time now. Thank goodness for His Word!

  5. “As we show mercy, God will show us mercy, when it is our time to experience hardships.”

    Well that isn’t exactly true, because it isn’t just about earthly individuals it is about the measure of the law that goes far beyond one planet and nation. Every individual as had a role in what their governments have done.

    Also Prophet Malachi told you all that the earth is cursed if do not do the will of God in terms of his prophet that he promised to send.

    Christ also told you that the ‘meek shall inherit the earth’ who are the meek? Those that have the humility to do the will of God.

    Christians denied the holy ones of God, Christians denied God’s healers that he sent to help humanity to heal themselves.

    Christians also murdered the native indians and still do not exalt the first nation in equality.

    Most of the people that live on the land of ESAU are the future generations of those that invaded the land of others or were taken there in slavery.

    That is no goodwill.

    The biblical prophecies predict that it is only JOSEPH that can help you in this timeline because they are the unfettered flame that was promised to Moses to be the prophet like him.

    An EXODUS is coming. Sadly, most of the Christians will not be amongst the people leaving at the rate they’re going.

    ALIYAH USA, ALIYAH and that does not mean go to Israel.

  6. ****An EXODUS is coming. Sadly, most of the Christians will not be amongst the people leaving at the rate they’re going. ALIYAH USA, ALIYAH and that does not mean go to Israel.****

    TRUE, I agree with you Eliakim, many of my friends in the US particularly in California are all set to leave or preparing to leave America. I’m doing the same though it hurts for many good reasons but particularly because Yeshua has warned to be watchful and to run for our lives in Matthew 24: – and in “v.22 He says: And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”

    This is true for the days are being shortened with every major earthquake and only G-d knows what’s gonna happen with the Madrid Fault Line and the West Coast. The Japan earthquake itself caused the earth to spin a lot faster and shortened the day by 2.0 microseconds more than the Indonesia (Dec 2004)and Chile (Feb 2010) earthquakes.
    The TRIBULATION is already here, we are living in the days of Noe (Noah), the wise will heed the warning, seek G-d and move, others will cling to their possessions and worldliness like lot’s wife and perish. Many don’t realize that unlike all disasters and genocides/holocaust/inquisition, this FINAL GLOBAL TRIBULATION will be a COMBINATION of all disasters of the earth and of mankind beginning from the Deluge(Flood), the destruction of the Tower of Babel, Sodom & Gomorrah, The Passover Plagues, all other that’s taken place in the past plus the present and the future ones that will include the release of the Nephilim bound in the depths of the earth plus the spirits of their offspring. Rev.9… and much more. This tribulation is going to be a horror beyond horrors that is simply unfathomable.

    I pray for every human being from every nation of the world to understand what’s going on, on this planet, to seek the one true G-d YESHUA HAMASCHIAH, and be saved and enjoy eternal life with HIM… Amen.

    • regarding exodus

      Where are people supposed to go?

      this is just for the mid – west and west coast?

      how do they know where they are going is to be any better or safer?

    • Is it not clinging to your possesions, when we are so worried about saving our lives that we avoid tribulation? What about Luke 17:33 “Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, But whoever loses his life will keep it.”

  7. Marianne and Dru, I’m not going to argue on your responses because it was a general comment I made looking back at history – Past, Medieval, and Present and I’m not just referring to the Madrid Fault Line and the West Coast earthquakes but a lot of things that I mentioned above, as well as Political, which I don’t want to get into but people should see and understand what’s going on in America, and prepare accordingly because it is the worst that will happen here and we can see and hear the clear warnings of that.

    Re. clinging to possessions and worldly things maybe you two are not like that, but fact is, there are people who can’t give up on those things, e.g. some of my own friends and family who say ” why worry about all that, just take one day at a time, whatever has to happen will happen” Well, these people are so busy in their own world that they don’t have time even for G-d – So how will G-d help them? And though it is all so scary yet I’m heeding to the Words of Yeshua(Jesus) and trusting in HIM alone for His help and guidance.

    Re.What about Luke 17:33 “Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, But whoever loses his life will keep it.” – Trust me Dru, this is exactly what is coming soon. Everyone’s mind is on Islam but there is more than that. The way the scriptures are interpreted in Christianity are far different than how they are interpreted in the Hebraic perspective. Check it out for yourself.

    About where one should go, I’m not a prophet or seer and don’t wish to be so, therefore, I can’t suggest where one should go or what to do but I did mention in my first comment above that people should do their research, SEEK G-D FOR GUIDANCE-this is vitally important, and act accordingly. Just as G-d has saved a remnant of both Jews and Gentiles and preserved the lands for them, then of all the landmass on this planet wouldn’t He preserve some safe place somewhere and make it possible to be there for those who have a heart for HIM? After all the disasters on earth and from the heavens, the Word of G-d does say that there will be survivors to see the Son of G-d coming in all His Glory, and those survivors will be both Jews and Gentiles I believe that 101%. Matthew 24:v.22, And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
    I want to be alive to be Yeshua’s light to the lost, I want to be alive to see HIM come in all His glory, I want to be alive to see His Coronation as the KING OF THE JEWS, King of the whole world and heaven itself.

    I haven’t written anything bad but according to the Word of God and I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. So do as your hearts tell you and go where it guides you.
    Be Blessed

    • Jes
      I did not mean to attack your statements, but only to say that we should rely on our faith, and Our God to save us. If we are all consumed with saving ourselves, we tend to put our faith in our preparations and not our God. I am not saying we shouldn’t prepare Either, Just to expect the unexpected. Just like the designer of the Nuclear plant in Japan had prepared for an 18′ tsunami, and “The Designer” of all things sent a 40′ one. All the other precautions just got washed away.

      There is nothing wrong with wanting to be alive when the Lord returns, all I am saying is that we should be ready for whatever the Lord calls us to do. Some Christians are called to suffer so that they may be a witness of the faith while others will be around to see him coronated.

  8. Dru,
    Well, its not about being consumed in saving ourselves but praying and heeding to G-d’s Word and at the same time preparing not just in terms of earthquakes but other horrific things that will be the peak in the US alone. I do a lot of study so I know from that. Of course, those who can afford to leave will leave but those who cannot afford, hope they will strongly stand on the saving promises of G-d i.e. Ps.91 and so many other beautiful scriptures…I pray for these poor souls not just Jews and Christians but all people of the world.

    I agree with you on your last paragraph but again the Bible always warn before disasters and so we must prepare. An example with the ARK, G-d gave Noah 100 years to build the ark, that’s a lot of years, and a clear indication to get into the Ark, no one did, but mocked Noah and then the flood came and wiped them all off. So the Word of God & Survival Preparedness go hand in hand. Just sharing.
    Have a nice day & Blessings.

    • The most important preparation we can do is to prepare for his second coming. The only ark we will need this time is the blood of Jesus, infused with the grace of God. God Bless

  9. You guys have heard of the rapture. Haven’t You?

    • Yes I have heard of the rapture, the part we do not know is the day or the hour. The question then becomes do we build an ark, or do we trust in our savior to save us, if that rapture comes later in the tribulation. I tend to lean toward the latter while Jes seems to lean towards the former. in other words, a healthy debate?

      • SIGH….we DO KNOW the “day or hour you don’t know”….listen to this video and KNOW! and stop saying YOU DON”T KNOW! WE KNOW! ya KNOW! LOL

        • All I can say is one hour and sixteen minutes.

          • LOL

            Trust me Dru…after viewing this video, go back and read revelation….it will save you hundreds of hours of trying to figure this out on your own!🙂

  10. dwight immohotichey
    Kindly explain who is going to be raptured and if the answer is “Christians” then give at least one good reason why they would be raptured. Thanks.

  11. Dru,
    You really don’t get it do you?. When I mentioned the ARK, I meant G-d gave 100 years for the people to repent and get ready to enter the literal ARK that Noah built. But in these END TIMES he is calling us to get into the Spiritual Ark, that is: being prepared by following the TORAH – which Christians don’t FOLLOW – instead they follow what their Pastors /Preachers preach to them, and majority only follow the New Testament (which by the way is not a Testament but a New Covenant) – they go by their own interpretation of the scriptures and most of the times are only focused on the Book of Romans, Ephesians, Corinthians and Hebrews and think they know it all.
    About when the day of the Lord is: They say even Jesus said that “He doesn’t know when that day is, only the father knows”…. They don’t understand that YESHUA(Jesus) spoke in parables as all Hebrews did. The way of life of the Chosen People is UNIQUE and certainly NOT the Christian way or better still THE PAGAN WAY. Christians have their own interpretation of scriptures without studying the TORAH. Anyone who truly wants to know YHWH(G-D) MUST study with the TRUE JEWS … Are you doing this and are they? When YESHUA said “FOLLOW ME” .. HE meant FOLLOW THE TORAH for HE Himself is the TORAH. For though the TORAH was given in the hands of the JEW (Moses), yet it was STRICTLY meant also for the gentiles who were gathered at the Mount Sinai ((EXODUS 12:37-The people of Isra’el traveled from Ram’amses to Sukkot, some six hundred thousand men on foot, not counting children – 38.A MIXED CROWD ALSO WENT UP WITH THEM as well as livestock in large numbers, both flocks and herds…Complete Hebrew Bible)) – So has YHWH made the OLD COVENANT OBSOLETE so Christians can get conveniently raptured Pre-Trib to heaven? And are the Jews supposed to remain on earth to suffer the whole Tribulation. Haven’t the Jews suffered enough from Time Immemorial?? What a Farce! Well, for your info everyone JEWS & GENTILES have to go thru the Tribulation until after the 3 days of darkness – So forget about the PRE-TRIB RAPTURE. YESHUA is coming for HIS PEOPLE (THE CHOSEN PEOPLE) FIRST, then the Christian who follow the TORAH – and certainly not for Christians who DON’T FOLLOW THE TORAH.

    So don’t throw your SARCASTIC remarks at me just because I mentioned the ARK, for you don’t even know who I am. By the way its a good thing you have put up PASTOR MARK’s VIDEO, for you and the Christians can learn from that and start following the TORAH – for those who don’t will NEVER PASS THE TEST… I don’t need to say more you can ponder over that.
    By the way Pastor Mark of El Shaddai is a JEW and a great teacher I have been studying his teachings since the past 5 years..

    It’s truly a waste of time to debate and argue with christians like you who think they know it all. The Word of G-D is to be researched, studied, and practiced. This means FOLLOWING YESHUA. If you have a lot of time to debate and argue, by all means to do it for your pleasure, I would rather do more TORAH research and study and prepare my life for the perils that are already here rather than spend time on useless debates.

    • Jes
      You do not understand what I am saying. First of all, I am not a pre-trib rapture person. Secondly, I do not know everything; If I did, I wouldn’t be searching for answers. Thirdly, I have never said that we should not follow the Torah. The only comments that I have made regarding this is that what the Lord wants is not legalism, but one who obeys the law from the inside out, through the sanctifying work of God. That is what the new covenent is all about.
      As for studying the Jewish faith, I am moving in that direction. But when I meet up with vitriol like yours, It makes me wonder whether that is the right direction. In other words, I see your attitude as of those Jews in the early church which were forcing their Jewishness on the gentiles, the ones who Paul said should go all the way and immasculate themselves. I was only trying to say we should rely on God, not man for our salvation, obviously this was not part of your faith. Believe me when I say I am preparing for the end times, Having an attitude such as yours only pushes people away from sites like this that help people prepare.
      God Bless, I will refrain from further discussion with you as it is only met with Insult and pride.

  12. I suggest people here do not insult or accuse others.

    Use scripture to back up your points

    Realize that others may have valid opinions.

    Do not take offense when NOTHING has been said that is offensive.

    Those are the rules here.

  13. Dru

    What do you mean that the New Testament is not a Testament but a Covenant?

    It is the New Testament, didn’t Jesus die. His death made it a testament. To have a testament you must have a death and it is the new covenant also right?

    Pattie

    • Pattie
      I think that is one of the most inciteful questions I have heard yet.
      Jeremiah 31:31 and following describe this covenent. It begins with personal salvation, and is completed in the millenial reign of Christ. We Christians are part of this covenent now. It is like how God made a covenent with Abraham long before the fulfillment of a promised land occurred. Verse 33b sums up this covenent “…I will put My law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. and I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34. And no longer each one teach his neighbor and each his brother ,saying, ‘Know the Lord’, FOR THEY SHALL ALL KNOW ME, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”

      What we Christians are seeing is a foreshadowing of the millenial kingdom, for through the blood of Jesus, Our sins are covered. As we grow in Christ, the Law is written in our hearts more and more, not of our own doing, but the work of God almighty, through the holy spirit. This will culminate in us becoming a new creation in Christ.
      I Corinthians 11:25 in talking of the Lord’s supper discusses this covenent as well. “In the same way also he took the cup, after supper, saying, ‘this cup is the NEW COVENENT in my BLOOD. Do this as often as you drink it, IN REMEMBRENCE OF ME.’ 26. For as often as you eat this bread, and drink the the cup, YOU PROCLAIM THE LORD’S DEATH until HE COMES.” As you can see, this covenent is in the blood of jesus, yet it hints at something “greater” when he comes again.
      Hebrews 8,9,10 Go even into further detail on this covenent, and what it will be like at his second coming. I will not quote it here, but it deals with the day of atonement. Hebrews 10:14 states; “For by a single offering he has perfected for all time Those who are being SANCTIFIED.”

      Now the new Covenent of Jesus blood allows us through sanctification, to obey the law with a pure heart. It takes faith to believe that the blood of Jesus can cleanses our sin. Many however, revert back to their legalism to justify, rather than trusting In Jesus sacrifice to cover all sin. Ultimately, Legalism is man/woman exalting themselves to the position of Jesus, because they believe that their own works in some way will justify them. But if you look at the parable of the Sower in Matthew, we see four groups of people, and their reaction to the Gospel. The first outright rejects the gospel. The second accepts it with joy, but when tested fall away, the third in the thorns, they are choked away by the cares of this world. The final group, with the good soil “they are those, who hearing the Word, hold it fast in an HONEST AND GOOD HEART, and BEAR FRUIT WITH PATIENCE.” (LUKE 8:15)
      Note the Highlighted words: Honest and good heart, bearing fruit with patience. These words hint at the new covenent, and its fulfillment, personally within us, and finally in the millenial kingdom where it will be universal.

      BTW When someone comes to you and says “you don’t know who you’re talking to”, It usually means they have placed themselves on some sort of pedestal, and glorified themselves. This is why I had the harsh reaction above. This sort of statement wreaks of Legalism, and pride.

  14. Dru

    I don’t disagree with your statements above but my concern was that non-believers or weak faith individuals could be confused and take what you said and go else where with it.

    So I just want to identify for everyone that the definition of a testament is as follows. Here is the definition.

    1. Proof something that show that something else exists or is true.
    2. Formal statement of beliefs: a formal statement or speech
    outlining beliefs.
    3. Covenant between God and humankind: in Judaism and Christianity, a covenant made between God and humankind.

    This part is not to Dru:

    I think there is some confusion. It seems that some are not accepting of Jesus Christ when we throw the Torah out there, which contains not the new? What do you mean by that? The Rabbis’ I know all agree that the KJV of the old testament of the Bible is the same as the Torah? It sounds almost like some are using the Torah as if to defeat the name of the Bible? The Bible is both word of Torah and the New Testament, which is the fulfillment of the old.

    If You don’t know this you need to spend more time understanding the New because right now your heritage to be a Christian and being graphed into the tree you have not because you are rejecting the “New” to put the old legalistic approach back into place.

    That is going back wards you must have faith to enter in, right? Works won’t save; it is not for any man should boast. I read something above that are boasting, right?

    Jesus did the job he paid the price. That is sounding a lot like President Obama, “do you also have the right to divide the land”?

    I would like to add those who backbite thinking that calling them selves Jews will save them is not so. We are graphed in to the tree. It is the Jews by birth who are practicing the Torah and God gave the old covenant to them. God breaks not covenant. I had someone write me from this site telling me they are following the old covenant laws for eating and everything else, forgetting that God said nothing he made is unclean.

    You are as Paul said in Romans 7:6 KJY-But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not (in) the oldness of the letter.

    But that covenant is not for who make him self a Jew denying Jesus Christ and is a Gentile by birth in the body, because to be Jew other wise is of the soul and spirit. It is a choice, the wise and only right choice to enter in if you are a gentile? The word speaks regarding Gods coming to forgive the Jews who are under the old law and to have their acceptance of Jesus Christ. So if you are Gentile making yourself a Jew in bondage what are you doing? Making the sacrifice of the perfect vessel, our Lord and savior of non-effect have you lost it.

    Gentiles are only Jews when they are of the vine, Followers of Jesus Christ. Listen I communicate with many Rabbis’ and have Jewish friends but not to give up what Jesus did for me but to hope that I can show the Jewish people the price that the perfect sacrifice paid. If you aren’t of the vine you are lost and I hope I make that clear.

    The Gentiles rejecting the “new” reject the New Testament of Jesus Christ, it makes it seem as though someone is saying it is of no effect.

    Read what Paul said, do you want to go back under the old and give up the Liberty that comes from the faith covenant of Jesus Christ by acceptance? Christ died to set you “free”; to do other and go backwards is doing as Dru said taking a legalistic approach. It is not going to save you because you say you are under the Torah?

    A child of God is born of the spirit and the water of the New Testament. Act 2:38 repent be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for remission of your sins and then seek for the Holy Ghost. Once you receive the holy spirit of God within you, you will do the things that are in the Torah not because it is law but because we love Jesus and he dwells within. But if you fail you don’t have to go kill 20 bulls, 6 turtledoves and so on, you get back on your knees and ask for his help and forgiveness.
    Because it is by the grace that we are saved, that “no” man should boast, right?

    Discussions for firm understanding is great but picking wool off and acting as though you are better than others is prideful as Dru said and God said have pride only in that fact that your name is written in the “Lambs” book of life. None are Holy before God but Jesus Christ everyone else failed to measure up, but by faith and accepting him you are saved.

    Jesus was love not hate. The Bible is both covenants and it is the testament of Jesus life. If God can protect you and save you in Costa Rica or any other state, street or country than you now live why couldn’t he save you on the fault line. I live on it. You need to be ready; you could die in an accident going to the store. As the word says, as crazy as things are right now the USA is still the best nation on the earth.

    Oh don’t get me wrong going and living in Israel where God actually walked is the plan but for most it will wait till his coming and then he will gather his there and you won’t have to buy a plane ticket. Plenty hiding can be done in your own land.
    I gave it a lot of thought and was going to move within the USA and Marianne and I both agreed that God will care for us where ever we are, we are his and he loves us.

    Having your prayers answered if you belong to God is your bread, right? Have faith!

    God bless

    • Pattie
      Amen, and thank you for your comments, they are a blessing.

      I think of covenent and testament this way. A covenent is an unfulfilled Promise When the covenent is fulfilled it becomes a testament. Jesus Fulfilled the “old Testament” and the Law, while there are still unfulfilled “Covenents” in the Old testament that God has yet to fulfill. Jesus’ blood was THE Testimony which fulfilled the covenent of the Law. But he also set a New “Covenent” or promise, which will not be fulfilled until his second coming. Just as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob never saw that covenent fulfilled, yet they acted in faith in God, that he would fulfill that promise. Jesus fulfilled the promise of the Law, by enabling us to obey it with a pure heart, But we still have the fallen flesh and curse therof to contend with. The New Covenent that will be fulfilled at His second coming, is to transform our flesh, and the fallen groaning creation. As well as fulfilling the remaining covenents with Israel.
