The Gatlinburg Fire 2016 in the Great Smokey Mountains - Sound the Alarm - The Day of the Lord is Near.

A fire started in Tennessee in a remote area of the Smokey Mountain National Park into the city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It started November 28, 2016 on a remote mountain called Chimney Tops. Before it was put out, about seventeen thousand acres had burned (out of half a million). Most people have forgotten about that fire by now. But there are some interesting things about it.

First, the remote mountain where it started (Chimney Tops), is listed as being 144,000 centimeters tall - That is 1440 meters - 

And of course 144,000 is a number that students of the Book of Revelation will recognize immediately. It is a number mentioned first in Revelation chapter 7 where 12,000 Jews were sealed from 12 tribes making the total number sealed being 144,000. They were sealed at a time the angels were getting ready to hurt the earth (the tribulation), and the seal was to protect them from the pain that would come upon others. 

At the time of the cleanup, the day after the fire, Isaac McCord made the news by a most shocking discovery. The story of his discovery made USA Today as well as many other news outlets. He found one burnt and wet page of the Bible. It was under a park bench, and it was Joel chapter 1 with one verse from chapter 2. He posted the page on his facebook account and it is available on the internet. His story had multiple verifications.

Quoting Isaac McCord, 

”As soon as I got down on the ground, I noticed it was a Bible verse, and I was like holy crap," McCord said in a phone interview on Tuesday night. "It was in a puddle of water. I said, 'I want to take care of this the best way I can,' so I gently scooped it up and carried it out the best I could…parts of the right side of the page were preserved enough to get the message across:

"O Lord, to thee will I cry: For the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field,"  the page reads, according to a picture of the page posted on McCord's Facebook.

"We were like this is unreal, this is unbelievable," McCord said. "When we had both fully read it, we looked at each other — and I will never forget this moment — we both burst into tears. I was ghost white, and we just prayed. There was nothing else to do.
Angela Davis, reached by phone on Tuesday night, corroborated McCord's story, saying when she returned from the restroom, she saw him with the Bible page. It was burned, brittle, wet and in two pieces, she said…

The very last thing visible on the bottom of the burnt page of the Bible was part of Joel 2:1. 

Blow ye the trumpet…, and sound an alarm

Joel 1:15 was visible in KJV. It says: 

Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.”

And that happened one year after the four blood moons. 


And the fire started on Chimney Tops mountain, which listed as being 144,000 centimeters tall (1440 Meters). 

Woe to you who long for the Day of the LORD! What will the Day of the LORD be for you? It will be darkness and not light.
