How significant was Halley' comet. Did it serve as a Harold [Herald] telling us to anticipate the fulfilment of prophetic events ? Was it like 9/23/17. Why an economy killing pandemic and a gigantic locust plague ? How do we make sense of it all and keep our senses in the meantime.

Hi schooldad3. I was happy to see that you are applying Isaiah 18 because I too believe we are at Isaiah 18 in the timeline. I think Isaiah 17 has been fulfilled even though Damascus is not technically a ruinous heap yet the Syrian government is a ruinous heap.
I do believe however that your interpretation of Isaiah 18 is to literal. Please consider that a present is given to the Lord in Isa. 18:7. This is an action by the nation that has been throughout time scattered and pealed by armies (rivers). This action is in Isa. 18:3 as the ensign or flag demarcating warfare. The event is so dramatic that all nations are told to see and hear the world wide action and that of course is the covid 19 virus.
So Chapter 18 is about the virus coming out of China and this corresponds to the dragon in Rev. 12:3-4 as well as Rev. 6:3-4. The next event is the civil war as shown in Isa. 19:1-4. So, Egypt is not really Egypt in Chapter 19 and Ethiopia is not really Ethiopia in Chapter 18; in my opinion that is.
Boymaker2: I have been waiting for UFO proof. I think thus is there pretense for our vanishing.

mike: Boymaker - I recall you see the rapture as pre-Trib (IIRC-could be wrong tho). UFO would only make sense in that context. What if rapture is late Trib, or pre-Wrath? Just curious

bernie: mike/yardstick: I've always been taught and believed we vanish at the Rapture. Somewhere recently I read, our clothing remains, and somewhere else, our dead bodies remain. I looked in the "Rapture" section on the board but didn't see anything?

Boymaker2: Mike, I don't have a plan B, LOL! I am just going with the flow. Having been raised in New Age, I just expect that "ascended masters" will play a part in the great delusion. We've been primed for this for generations.

EnochWalked: If the Rapture occurs after the start of Tribulation, I imagine there will be so much general chaos and/or media control by the AC that many wouldn't notice that the Christians are missing. Especially if there's a lockdown, or Christianity is illegal.

yardstick: @ew: I expect the chaos to be present and we get yanked out of it. Meanwhile everyone else is yelling "peace!"; "safety!"; and clamoring for someone to give them a fix to the problem. Hence, why I believe covid is a practice run.

EnochWalked: YS: That makes a lot of sense, thank you. I imagine that the AC does give a sort of illusory "peace and safety" at least briefly, and maybe that hubris allows him to declare himself a god and be accepted as such by many.
