“The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.”
[NOTE: About a year ago, ETPR published Underground Bunkers for the End Times: What does the Bible Say? This article is somewhat of an update on the original, along with new material.]
The market for underground bunkers for the end times is booming. At least in America.
- The Underground Shelter Boom
- Doomsdayers’ underground survival shelters spread across Texas
- Shelter Sales Booming
Men can see that something isn’t quite right. “Preppers” are busy storing up food, firearms and precious metals, along with building or buying underground bunkers in hopes of escaping the calamities declared thousands of years ago in God’s Word.
But God’s Word declared that men would try to escape judgment by going underground and into the mountains.
“And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”
“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
Will this strategy be effective? Will hiding in underground bunkers and caves save men from the wrath of God? Or are men deceived?
“and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.”
Trying to escape the judgment of God is foolhardy.
“So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.”
So basically God is going to level the mountains and the world’s greatest earthquake is going to shake what’s left such as no earthquake has ever previously shaken the earth.
Contrary to what many believe, no preparation which man can devise will be able to change what has been preordained. Still, men continue to buy underground bunkers and underground living facilities with the hope that they can outwit God’s announced judgment
For the full scope of what will happen in that day–as well as the utter incapability of man’s puny efforts to stand in the face of the wrath of God Almighty–Isaiah 11 paints a clear picture.
“The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish.
And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.
In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”
—Isaiah 2:11-12, 17-21
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-4
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
