Assassin’s Creed and the Bible Part 5: The Toba Catastrophe

During the Toba Catastrophe there were earthquakes, lightning strikes-total devastation. The sun caused the Earth to burn for weeks. Charred bodies can be seen in a cutscene in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

AC Revelations Toba Charred Body from YouTube-W4RRI0R360 channelAnd the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.” (Revelation 16:8-9)

And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.” (Revelation 16:17-18)

In The Book of Revelation, we can see that the seven last plagues contain the wrath of God. Here’s a few additional verses on the subject:

And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.” (Revelation 15:1)

And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.” (Revelation 16:19)

Jupiter said this about the Toba Catastrophe’s aftermath: “The earth shook for days, the fires burned for weeks, and when the ash had settled, less than ten thousand of your kind still lived, and far fewer of ours.” Look at Isaiah 13:11, Isaiah 13:13 and Jeremiah 10:10:

And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” (Isaiah 13:11)

Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.” (Isaiah 13:13)

But the Lord is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.” (Jeremiah 10:10-11)

Nearly the entire planet was rendered barren after the catastrophe. Turn to Psalm 107:33-34:

He [God]turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground; A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

The Toba Catastrophe has a connection to the Biblical flood.

This is a picture of the Earth during the Toba catastrophe. Looks like water, doesn’t it?:

It is important to remember why God flooded the world:

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5)

Jupiter told Desmond this about the First Civilization’s efforts to avert the coming disaster: “We built vaults within which to work, each dedicated to a different method of salvation.” Turn to 1 Timothy 5:9, John 3:36 and John 14:6:

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (John 3:36)

For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,” (1 Thessalonians 5:9)

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
