 A hydrogeochemical monitoring programme has been set up in a bid to strengthen the volcanic monitoring of the Canary Islands volcano.

This programme will see scientists sample subterranean waters and PH levels, conductivity, temperature and radon dissolved gas activity.

The work will be carried out three times a week in four different points of Cumbre Vieja for the subsequent chemical and isotopic analysis of the waters, as well as the gases dissolved in them.

It comes after a flurry of seismic activity beneath the surface saw red-hot magma lift the ground of La Palma. 

LA PALMA VOLCANO: WILL IT ERUPT?

Volcano experts will examine the subterranean waters

Experts investigating recent tremors – which saw nearly 400 mini earthquakes in 15 hours over the weekend – found the earth has lifted up to 3.5cm in the past year.

And, after four days of inactivity, La Palma recorded another tremor overnight when a 1.9 magnitude quake was felt nine kilometres deep.

There are increasing fears such tremors could spark an eruption from the La Palma earthquake.

Meanwhile, Involcan scientists are set to oversee the chemical and isotopic composition of the gases emanating from a nearby stream ‘Dos Aguas’ at La Caldera de Taburiente every week.

The Canary Islands has been struck by 100s of earthquakes

The stream, located near the deadly volcano, is the degassing point that registers the highest emission of helium-3 in the Canary Islands.

Experts will analyse the samples of gases for their chemical and isotopic analysis at the ITER Geochemical Laboratory.

To date, the geochemical monitoring of these gas emissions was carried out once a year.

A team from the National Geographic Institute (IGN) are monitoring the site around the volcano 24 hours a day.

The seismic activity has prompted concerns the volcano is about to erupt

La Palma’s latest tremor was felt nine kilometres below ground.

There were 44 earthquakes recorded up to 2.1 magnitude hit between last Friday at 1.52pm and Saturday to 4.17am.

But experts believe the total number, including ones too small to be located, within the seismic storm was 352.

Nibiru Controversy Erupts as NASA Confirms Existence of Mysterious “Planet X”

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 18, 2017 , 12:30 pm

“What I see for them is not yet, What I behold will not be soon: A star rises from Yaakov, A scepter comes forth from Yisrael; It smashes the brow of Moab, The foundation of all children of Shet.” Numbers 24:17 (The Israel Bible™)

After years of denying and debunking, NASA scientists confirmed the existence of a ninth planet in a discovery that seems to conform to popular theories of an apocalyptic collision with a planet called Nibiru. Skeptics on both sides bring their arguments, while researchers continue to present more amazing discoveries of this yet-to be-seen addition to the solar system.

On October 4th, NASA published a press release stating that it had discovered unmistakable evidence of a ninth planet in the far extremes of space, orbiting the solar system. The planet is surmised to be ten times the mass of Earth, but it has yet to be seen since its elliptical orbit is estimated to be about 60 billion miles away from the sun.

The description of the new planet conformed so closely to the predictions of Nibiru, a large planetary object that many believe will collide with the earth, that the NASA press release contained a cosmic disclaimer.

“If a planet is there, it’s extremely distant and will stay that way (with no chance — in case you’re wondering – of ever colliding with Earth, or bringing ‘days of darkness’).”

Coincidentally, the head researcher, astronomer Mike Brown, also tweeted a dismissal of the Nibiru theory.

The similarities between Nibiru, also called Planet X, and the new NASA discovery are remarkable nonetheless. Brown and his co-researcher, Konstantin Batygin, based their conclusion of a ninth planet on their observation of six known objects in the distant Kuiper Belt, a region of icy bodies stretching from Neptune outward toward interstellar space. All the objects displayed elliptical orbits pointing in the same direction. The only explanation for this tilted orbit was the gravitational influence of another, much larger object.

“Over long periods of time, Planet Nine will make the entire solar-system plane precess or wobble, just like a top on a table,” Batygin said.

Similarly, Planet X was first proposed by astronomers in the 19th century to explain observed irregularities in the orbits of Uranus and the newly-discovered Neptune. Though still the source of valid scientific conjecture, the Planet X theory was reworked into an apocalyptic version in the 1990s, in which planetary destruction from a planet called Nibiru is imminent.

The NASA researchers are convinced that unlike Planet X, their ninth planet does indeed exist.

“There are now five different lines of observational evidence pointing to the existence of Planet Nine,” said Batygin. “If you were to remove this explanation and imagine Planet Nine does not exist, then you generate more problems than you solve. All of a sudden, you have five different puzzles, and you must come up with five different theories to explain them.”

Yuval Ovadia, whose films on Nibiru and Planet X have garnered millions of views, was skeptical of NASA’s disclaimer.

“They have been denying the existence of Planet X for years, and suddenly they announce they found it,” Ovadia told Breaking Israel News incredulously. “They say that Nibiru doesn’t exist while at the same time they announce a new planet. They are just arguing about the name, not the existence of Planet X.”

The reason behind this alleged deception is clear to Ovadia.

“NASA is trying to avoid generating panic,” he said. “They haven’t even sighted the new planet so it is impossible for them to know if its orbit will intersect with the Earth’s orbit. People understand this.”

Ovadia bases his theory on sources in Jewish literature relating to the Star of Jacob described in the Book of Numbers.

What I see for them is not yet, What I behold will not be soon: A star rises from Yaakov, A scepter comes forth from Yisrael; It smashes the brow of Moab, The foundation of all children of Shet. Numbers 24:17

Most notably, a section of the Zohar, the foundational work of Jewish mysticism, describes in detail an astronomical occurrence that must necessarily precede the Messiah.

Then one awful star the color of crimson will appear in the middle of the heavens, burning and sparkling in the eyes of the entire world. And a fire will appear as one flame in the northern part of the sky, for forty days, shocking the entire world. At the end of forty days, the fire and the star will battle…At that time, the Messiah will be awakened from a place called ‘the bird’s nest’, and he will be revealed in the Galilee.

Ovadia and some rabbis believes this describes the arrival of the Planet Nibiru, though this belief is not universally accepted.

Dr. Noah Brosch, a retired professor of astronomy at Tel Aviv University and director of the Wise Observatory, is skeptical of the skeptics.

“They can say the new planet is Nibiru, and they can even say it is made of green cheese,” Dr. Brosch said emphatically. “Unlike these Planet X theories, NASA does not make claims until they have thoroughly checked it out. They do not deny claims without first checking the possibility that it exists. This is science and is a result of data, not made-up theories.”

Despite NASA’s advances, the ninth planet still contains several mysteries. Researchers are unsure of the origins of Planet Nine. It may be a refugee from this solar system or it may be a rogue from the outer realms that was captured by the sun’s gravity. Batygin and Brown are using the Subaru Telescope at Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii to attempt a sighting of the elusive super-planet which will put this question to rest.

MONSTER WAVE: Tsunami fears in Spain as HUGE active volcano experiences 40 quakes in 48 hours

By Laurence Dollimore (News Editor) – PUBLISHED –

11 Oct, 2017 @ 11:55

RESIDENTS on the Canary islands are fearing a volcanic eruption after the Spanish archipelago was hit by more than 40 earthquake tremors in just 48 hours. 

La Palma was hit by more than 40 seismic movements of low magnitude between 1.5 and 2.7 on the Richter scale, according to the data of the National Geographic Institute.

The largst quake had a magnitude of 2.7 in the area of the Natural Park Cumbre Vieja on Saturday around 1pm, 28 km below the ground.

The second largest, of 2.6, took place at 1.23pm on Sunday in the same area, while the third quake took place at midnight on Monday, reaching a magnitude of 2.1, according to the Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan).

READY TO BLOW?: Cumbre Vieja

The earthquakes from the huge Cumbre Vieja volcano have led volcano experts to be pulled in to examine the unusual seismic activity.

There have now been 50 tremors in three days after at least ten were recorded overnight last night.

One of them reported a magnitude of 2.1 just after midnight.

A 2.8-magnitude earthquake was also recorded in the northwest of the Canary Island of Gran Canaria.

Volcano experts from the Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan) are now intensifying surveillance on the islands after being shocked by the sudden and sharp rise in activity.

María José Blanco, director of the National Geographic Institute in the Canary Islands, said the island has ‘never recorded a similar swarm’.

The earthquakes have not been felt by residents because they are occurring very deep below the ground.

Scientists have warned if the huge volcano erupts, it will likely collapse into the sea – sparking a mile-high tidal wave that would engulf Spain, Britain and the east coast of the US.

Experts have predicted the monster tsunami would strike Spain’s south and west coasts as well as Portugal, plunging the lives of thousands in danger.

It could then hit north Africa, before moving thousands of miles across the Atlantic and hitting the Caribbean and the east coast of the US.

Another Major Disaster Hits The U.S. – A Massive ‘Firestorm’ Is Burning Tens Of Thousands Of Acres In Northern California

By Michael Snyder, on October 9th, 2017

The nation is still reeling from a series of major disasters in recent weeks, and now another one has hit us.  At this moment, an enormous “firestorm” is consuming tens of thousands of acres in eight counties in northern California. Wind gusts of up to 50 mph are rapidly driving 15 large wildfires across Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, Yuba, Nevada, Calaveras and Butte counties, and the devastation that is taking place is being described as “like Armageddon”.  Ultimately, it looks like this is going to be one of the worst months for wildfires in the history of the state, and all of this comes on the heels of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma and the Las Vegas shooting.  Ever since late August, it seems like all hell has broken loose in America.

So far at least 1,500 structures have been destroyed, at least 20,000 people have been evacuated and at least 73,000 acres have been burned.  The smell of smoke has reached San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco, and California Governor Jerry Brown has officially declared a state of emergency.

If these wildfires were just consuming isolated parts of northern California, this wouldn’t be such a big story.  The reason why this crisis is getting so much attention from the national media is because some of these fires are raging “unchecked through high-end resorts, grocery stores and tree-lined neighborhoods”

More than a dozen wildfires whipped by powerful winds swept through California wine country Monday, destroying at least 1,500 homes and businesses and sending thousands fleeing as flames raged unchecked through high-end resorts, grocery stores and tree-lined neighborhoods.

As he fled through the ember-stewn streets of his neighborhood in Santa Rosa, Jeff Okrepkie knew it was probably the last time he would see his home of the past five years standing.

His worst fears were confirmed Monday morning, when a friend sent him a photo of what was left: a smoldering heap of burnt metal and debris.

Could you imagine how helpless you would feel if you were forced to evacuate and you knew that your home and everything that you owned was about to be consumed by fire?

That is what thousands of northern Californians are facing right now.  In fact, many are getting out with so little time to spare that they can literally feel the heat from the flames as they drive away

“It was an inferno like you’ve never seen before,” said Marian Williams, who caravanned with neighbors before dawn as one of the wildfires reached the vineyards and ridges at her small Sonoma County town of Kenwood.

Ms Williams could feel the heat of her fire through the car as she fled. “Trees were on fire like torches,” she said.

At this point, Santa Rosa appears to be getting hit worse than just about anywhere else.

According to Cal Fire director Ken Pimlott, one major neighborhood within the city has already been completely destroyed

When winds pushed the Tubbs fire into Santa Rosa on Sunday night, it created “a firestorm within a city,” Cal Fire director Ken Pimlott said.

“It’s fair to say it’s been destroyed,” Pimlot said of Santa Rosa’s Fountaingrove neighborhood. Hotels, a big box store and a high school burned as the flames danced around the 101 Freeway.

“Late last night starting around 10 o’clock you had 50-60 mph winds that surfaced — really across the whole northern half of the state,” he said. “Every spark is going to ignite.”

Authorities are telling us that the big box store that was destroyed was a Kmart, and the hotel that was burned to the ground was a Hilton.  But even more disturbing was what happened to Journey’s End retirement community

In Santa Rosa, the fire gutted a Hilton hotel and flattened the Journey’s End retirement community, a trailer park not far from the freeway that crosses the city. Most of the trailers were leveled, leaving a smoldering debris field of household appliances, filing cabinets and the charred personal effects of more than 100 residents. Pieces of ash fell like snowflake flurries, and a pall of white smoke across the city blotted out the sun.

Insurance will cover the Kmart and the Hilton, but it is probably fair to say that a lot of the people living in that trailer park did not have adequate coverage.

Sadly, many of them will now be forced to start over with essentially nothing.

I don’t know if you have noticed, but wildfires are becoming a much bigger problem than they used to be.  We were already not too far behind the record pace that was set in 2015, and if this month continues to be really bad we could potentially set the all-time national record for number of acres burned in a single year by the end of 2017.

As I discuss in my brand new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, our planet is becoming increasingly unstable.  And for those living in the state of California, I would be extremely concerned about all of the shaking that we have been witnessing along the North American portion of the “Ring of Fire” lately.  The experts assure us that we are way overdue for “the Big One”, and when it happens it is going to be the worst disaster in the modern history of the state.

But hopefully things will start to settle down for at least a little while in our nation, because we have been put through quite a lot lately.  After Harvey, Irma, Las Vegas and now these California wildfires, we could definitely use some time to recover.

MOST IMPORTANT POST: Why Most Christian Churches Refuse To Preach The Truth About The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ

Go to your average mega-church where thousands will gather on a Sunday, and you will hear happy, upbeat messages about how God has a “wonderful plan” for your life. What you will not hear is that when Jesus returns at the Second Coming, He stomps His enemies the same way you stomp grapes, with the literal blood of the fallen staining His white robes.

 

by Geoffrey Grider October 8, 2017

When you remove Bible doctrine for the Christian in the Church Age, you are left with little more than fairy tales and fables.

“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.” Revelation 19:11 (KJV)

In America today, there are roughly 300,000 churches claiming to represent Jesus Christ, that’s an average of 6,000 churches per state. That’s a lot of churches. So why are so many professing Christians ignorant about the main theme of the Bible? Because there is not one in a thousand that preaches Bible doctrine, and not one in ten thousand that believes the book of Revelation is a road map of the future.

What is the main theme of the Bible, you ask? From cover to cover, the main theme of the Bible is the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to rule and reign as King over all the nations, literally, physically and visibly. I will pause here for a moment as you struggle to collect your thoughts, your mind reeling from trying to process this “strange teaching” that your pastor never touches on in your church.

When Paul commanded Timothy to study the word like a “workman”, and to learn to “rightly divide” the truth of scripture, he was giving us a template for proper Bible study. Making necessary divisions like between Old Testament – New Testament, Jews – Christians – Gentiles, etc, takes away the confusion and seeming contradictions present when casually studying from a high level. Paul also says that in the end times, Bible doctrine will thrown out the window, leaving the average Christian in the dark about the future.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” 2 Timothy 2:3,4 (KJV)

When you remove Bible doctrine for the Christian in the Church Age, you are left with little more than fairy tales and fables. Joel Osteen has famously stated that the reason he refuses to preach on Hell and the coming judgment is because “most Christians are beaten down enough”. Hmm, I guess Joel knows better what a Christian needs than God does, because God commands us to study about the things that are about to come upon all the earth.

Paul says that in the end times Christians will “not endure sound doctrine” and so it is. The main reason they “won’t endure” it is because most preachers won’t preach it. So with that introduction, let’s get to today’s lesson on why pastors refuse to preach the truth about the Second Coming of Jesus. I have boiled it down to easy to read bullet points for those of you who are easily exhausted by actual Bible study.

The Top 5 Reasons Pastors Refuse To Preach On The Truth Of The Second Coming:

  1. THE RETURNING JESUS IS REPULSIVE TO THE LAODICEAN CHRISTIAN: Go to your average mega-church where thousands will gather on a Sunday, and you will hear happy, upbeat messages about how God has a “wonderful plan” for your life. What you will not hear is that when Jesus returns at the Second Coming, He stomps His enemies the same way you stomp grapes, with the literal blood of the fallen staining His white robes. Not only that, His eyes are gleaming while He does it.  This imagery does not fit well with Laodicean slop like The Power Of I Am, and The Purpose Driven Life. But the Bible clearly and plainly teaches that the returning Jesus is coming to claim His Kingdom, and anyone who gets in the way will be flattened instantly. “His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Revelation 19:13 (KJV)
  2. THE DAY OF THE LORD IS FILLED WITH TERROR AND DARKNESS: Your average Laodicean pastor hardly ever mentions the Second Coming, but when they do, it’s usually something along of the lines of this. “One fine day, Jesus will return and the world will live in peace and harmony, and there will be no more social injustice and everyone will be happy”. What he doesn’t tell you is that the Day Jesus comes back, the world is thrown into terrifying darkness, and that Jesus has come to rule this world as a military dictator. Joel has this to say about that Day – “Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.” Joel 1:15 (KJV). John has this to say about the military dictatorship – “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” Revelation 19:15 (KJV). And I could give you dozens of verses more, from both Testaments, proving what I say is true.
  3. CHRISTIANS ARE NOT ‘BRINGING IN THE KINGDOM’: Have you ever sat in church and listened to the pastor waxed eloquently about “bringing in the kingdom”, and that we must all “work together” to establish God’s kingdom here on Earth? They do that so they can justify building programs, staff expansions, new locations and all the rest. People who are fooled into thinking they are “bringing in the kingdom” are willing to give large sums of money and provide free labor. Those two things are exactly why pastors preach like that. But the Bible says nothing about anyone bringing in the Kingdom except for Jesus Christ at the Second Coming. The only kingdom that humans are creating is the kingdom of Antichrist that will oppose Jesus when He returns. “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10 (KJV).
  4. JERUSALEM AS THE CENTER OF THE WORLD IS ABHORRENT TO MOST PASTORS: Because most pastors and preachers in America today are not Bible believers, they spiritualize and make metaphor out of clear and plain Bible teaching. Scripture absolutely teaches a literal, visible and physical rule of the returned Jesus, who is now King of Kings, over all the nations of the Earth, and on His Throne in Jerusalem. Let me put it to you more plainly. When Jesus returns, people will be able to travel to Israel and see with their eyes Jesus ruling in righteousness from the actual land mass called Israel. This will take place for one thousand literal, actual calendar years. Don’t believe it? Then you don’t believe the Bible. Isaiah says: “For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles. And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.” Isaiah 66:18-20 (KJV). Zechariah says: “And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.” Zechariah 14:9 (KJV). John says: “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.” Revelation 20:6 (KJV).
  5. THE BOOK OF REVELATION IS TOO UNPLEASANT TO CONSIDER: Ask the average Laodicean Christian about the book of Revelation, and more often than not you will hear them say that it’s a “symbolic book” that contains “confusing and dark” references to things that “no one can really understand”. The average Christian pastor, from any denomination, feels the same way, too. Now I’ll grant you that, like a Swiss watch, there are a lot of “moving parts” in the book of Revelation. It’s complex for sure, but far from being “unknowable”. But the real reason why Christians turn away from Revelation is not that it “cannot be understood”, but rather that what it contains is too repulsive to contemplate. Revelation shows us the collapse of the professing Christian church into apostasy in chapter 3, the rapture of the Church in chapter 4, Jesus releasing Antichrist in chapter 6, and from there we see virtually unlimited death, destruction and terrifying judgments. So bad in fact that men’s hearts “failing them for fear”. Christians tell me all the time that, while they are looking forward to seeing Jesus, they don’t want the Rapture to take place before they can get married and have kids. So pastors don’t preach on the Pretrib Rapture because they want their flock focusing on things of Earth like building programs and fundraisers. “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” Luke 21:25,26 (KJV).

Now you know why your church doesn’t preach Bible doctrine and why your pastor is deceiving you with fluff stories and fairy tales. Because the truth is too terrible to contemplate, and it’s bad for business. Now, if you’ve decided you actually like Bible doctrine and want to know more about what your pastor is hiding from you, click here to read our Bible Doctrine library.

It will help you to be ready for what comes next.

Something Very Strange Is Happening In The New Madrid Region: The Mississippi River Is Drying Up In Some Areas – Another Warning Sign Of A Devastating Quake In The Near Future?

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

‘The preacher man says it’s the end of time. And the Mississippi River she’s a-goin’ dry’ – Hank Williams Jr. – Country Boys Can Survive

While most Americans eyes are glued upon Las Vegas, Nevada and what appears to be a massive false flag event there with shooter Stephen Paddock most likely not just an ‘ordinary white man’ as the msm would like us to believe but someone who’s been radicalized by either Islamic or Antifa terrorist propaganda, we thank people like videographers MrMBB333 and On Point Preparedness for keeping track of the bizarre earth changes that are now happening before our eyes and in none other than the New Madrid fault region.

While the ‘Ring of Fire’ has been on fire as shared in this recent Strange Sounds story warning that a string of catastrophic events along the Ring of Fire point to a potentially ‘much bigger event’ in the near future and while this East Bay Times story reports that an ‘earthquake thermometer’ shows that the Los Angeles region is near the ‘boiling point’, little reported is that the southern Illinois area just had its strongest quake in 6 years. And as we hear in each of the first 4 videos below, something very strange is happening now in the New Madrid region as water is vanishing along various points of the Mississippi River.

While most Americans likely never believed we’d hear the words of Hank Williams Jr. ‘Country Boys Can Survive’ song coming true before our very eyes, as videographer MrMBB333 tells us, parts of the Mississippi MAY be vanishing away into cracks in the ground. And just like Williams lyrics, “The preacher man say’s it’s the end of time. And the Mississippi River she’s a-goin’ dry”. For those in the mood for some Hank Williams Jr., that song is the last video at the bottom of this story.

As we see in the graphic above screenshot from over at Earthquake Track, a series of small earthquakes have recently struck the New Madrid region over the past 14 days with the 3 biggest quakes in the series coming in the past few days as we hear from our videographer in the 2nd video below. Interestingly, these recent quakes are also happening in the same area as where portions of the Mississippi are running dry. Just a coincidence? As our videographer asks, is the water disappearing into cracks in the surface of the Earth, possibly caused by the New Madrid fault re-awakening?

We feel that it’s probably not a coincidence that so many different ‘earth changes’ are now happening all around the world  with a horrific rockslide recently in Yosemite Park a possible precursor to a massive West Coast/California quake coming soon after a behemoth 8.1 quake struck Mexico, sending its shock waves all across America for several hours afterwards as detailed and proven in this recent Strange Sounds story.

As we see in the graphic above from the USGS, the New Madrid region is one of the ‘hot zones’ for earthquakes in the United States along with the entire West coast. While the last truly major earthquakes in the New Madrid region happened all the way back in 1800’s with a series of major quakes between 1811 and 1812, as we see in the 2nd graphic below, major damage from the 1895 magnitude 6 quake was experienced across parts of 8 different states and the shaking was felt as far away as New York, Washington DC, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Louisiana.

In this September 21st story over at Time they ask “Is The US Overdue For A Catastrophic Earthquake?” while outlining the cities across the US that are at the most risk while not surprisingly highlighting all of California and the Pacific Northwest. Warning in each of these cases its a matter of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ and ‘its just a matter of time’, a New Madrid quake in 2017 could be beyond catastrophic we’re told with millions of people now living in a region only sparsely populated more than 200 years ago when a quake that would have measured 7.6 on the richter scale sent the Mississippi River briefly flowing backwards.

And while some ‘experts’ warn its nearly impossible to tell when the next killer quake will strike America, we’ve found that listening to ‘alternative media personalities’ such as MrMBB333 and ‘DutchSinse’ and ‘On Point Preparedness’ are giving the world a point of view that’s needed and as has been documented over and over again, earthquake predictions being made by these people ARE coming true whether or not the msm apparatus wants to believe it so or not.

And while of course we’re not in the position to guarantee that a massive New Madrid quake will be forthcoming in a matter of days or weeks, we along with countless others appreciate the efforts that these videographers make to warn Americans of  anomalies such as the Mississippi drying up in certain places. The first video below from videographer MrMBB333 titled “Mississippi River going dry ABOVE New Madrid Fault – Crack in ground?” has over 70,000 views already!

The third video below from our same videographer asks a great question, “where is the Mississippi River water going?  Going DRY not long after historic floods!” Any ideas, please let us know what you think in the comment section below. As even the USGS admits, earthquakes have long rattled the ‘Earth’s plumbing systems‘.

In this June 27th of 2017 story over at NASA they report that ‘solar minimum’ is now coming. Warning within their story that every 11 years or so, ‘sunspots fade away’, they report we’re now heading towards a low point expected to be reached sometime in 2019 or 2020. Days later on July 3rd, Newsweek reported “the sun is getting quieter and is displaying some very weird behavior” and as we hear in the 4th video below from On Point Preparedness, some of the biggest quakes in the history of the New Madrid have also occurred during ‘solar minimum’.

While it’s been argued by some that a New Madrid quake in the present day that rivaled those of the 1800’s could quite literally split America in two, causing the Great Lakes to overflow and the Mississippi River to widen all the way south to the Gulf of Mexico as seen in ‘The Future Map of North America’ above that was detailed in this Forbes story, we won’t hold our breaths waiting for such an event.

We simply see the videos below as more possible warning signs of ‘mass earth changes’ ahead, changes that as preppers we should be preparing for each and every day, anyways. We have long been warned by the Bible that our planet Earth would one day again be going through major ‘birth pangs’, information now scientifically proven as shared in this book by John L. Casey called “Upheaval!: Why Catastrophic Earthquakes Will Soon Strike the United States.

Schools Across England Removing All Calendar References To Jesus Christ By Switching To CE And BCE

The traditional terms BC, Before Christ, and AD, Anno Domini, are being ditched for BCE – Before Common Era, and CE – Common Era. The new terms still denote the periods before and after the birth of Christ. Local authority committees drawing up religious education syllabuses say the old terms may upset minorities or non-believers. But critics blasted the move as a ‘capitulation to political correctness’.

Schools across the country have stopped using the terms BC and AD in religious education lessons for fear of offending non-Christians.

“And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:16 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: For hundreds of years, the world has used a calendar where each and every year is a direct reference to Jesus of Nazareth. Now in the country from whence the King James Bible first came into being, those references – AD and BC – are being removed from all calendars in the school systems. It is being replaced with CE for ‘common era’ and BCE ‘before the common era’ so favored by atheists, agnostics and Jehovah’s Witnesses. As we get closer to the Rapture of the Church, the world being left behind is preparing to meet Antichrist.

The traditional terms BC, Before Christ, and AD, Anno Domini, are being ditched for BCE – Before Common Era, and CE – Common Era. The new terms still denote the periods before and after the birth of Christ.

Local authority committees drawing up religious education syllabuses say the old terms may upset minorities or non-believers. But critics blasted the move as a ‘capitulation to political correctness’.

Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey said the rulings by the religious education committees were a ‘great shame’.

Muslim and Jewish leaders were also mystified, saying they were not offended by the familiar terms.

Local authority committees – known as Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (SACREs) – from Brighton and Essex are among a growing number urging heads to ditch BC and AD.

The syllabus for schools in East Sussex, for example, reads: ‘BCE and CE are now used in order to show sensitivity to those who are not Christians.’

Lord Carey said: ‘I have never met a Muslim or Jewish leader who is offended by the Gregorian calendar’ while leading Imam Ibrahim Mogra said: ‘I don’t believe it causes Muslims offence.’ A spokesman for the Board of Deputies of British Jews said: ‘I don’t think anyone would mind if in mainstream schools they use BC and AD.’

Chris McGovern, the chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said: removing BC and AD ‘is a capitulation to political correctness’.

National Association of Standing Advisory Councils on Religious Education chair Paul Smalley said: ‘Individual SACREs and schools can make a judgment over which form of dating is appropriate.’

Troubling Signs of the Biblical End Times?: ‘This Is No Joke’ According to Highly-Regarded Megachurch Pastor

September 19, 2017

Pastor Greg Laurie, founder of the Harvest Crusades and senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside and Irvine, California, believes that there are some troubling “signs of the times” that are worth paying close attention to, specifically when it comes to end times Bible prophecy.

“We need to be students of Bible prophecy,” he recently said on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast.” “I believe if we understand it correctly, it will just motivate us to live godly lives and do all that we can to reach our generation while we can.”

Laurie warned that people can often make the mistake of either over —or under — emphasizing eschatology (the study of the end times) and detailed some troubling trends that he believes could indicate that we’re moving closer toward biblical fulfillment.

“North Korea — this is a big thing. I don’t think people understand. This is no joke,” Laurie said. “This dictator has the power now to deliver nuclear weapons. For a number of years, I’ve been talking about this.”

Listen to Laurie dive deep into Bible prophecy below:

Laurie, who also appeared on the podcast to discuss his upcoming film, “Steve McQueen: American Icon,” lamented the relationship between North Korea and Iran, warning that the latter country “plays a key role in the last days scenario as one of the allies that marches … against Israel.”

“You know, just pull the camera back, I would say these are signs of the times,” he said. “They’re reminders that Jesus is coming and as Christians, we need to be really praying for our president, if we voted for him or not. He is the man that God has put in that office, if you like it or not.”

3 Large Earthquakes And A Major Volcanic Eruption In Mexico Spark Fears That The Big One Could Hit California Soon

September 24, 2017 by Michael Snyder

 

The portion of “the Ring of Fire” that runs along the west coast of North America is starting to shake like a leaf. As most of you already know, the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean is known for high levels of seismic activity, and the experts tell us that more than 80 percent of all earthquakes and more than 70 percent of all volcanic eruptions take place within the Ring of Fire. The North American section of the Ring of Fire has been relatively quiet for an extended period of time, but now all of the shaking down in Mexico is causing a tremendous amount of concern. In fact, some now fear that all of the shaking down there may be a harbinger of things to come for California.

 

Within the last 30 days, there have been three major earthquakes in Mexico. This latest one was a magnitude 6.2 earthquake, and it was accompanied by an eruption of Mt. Popocatepetl

A magnitude 6.2 earthquake that shook Mexico on Saturday was blamed for five deaths, spreading fear among a population reeling from multiple natural disasters and interrupting the search for survivors from a bigger tremor earlier this week.

South of Mexico City, the Popocatepetl volcano sent a column of ash into the sky, capping a period of seismic activity including two powerful tremors this month that have killed more than 400 people and caused damages of up to $8 billion.

Mexico’s capital was shattered by Tuesday’s magnitude 7.1 quake that flattened dozens of buildings and killed at least 307 people.

Of course the magnitude 8.1 earthquake that hit Mexico back on September 7th was the largest earthquake that we have seen down there in ages.

The earthquakes are getting most of the attention from the media, and without a doubt they have caused extensive damage, but Mt. Popocatepetl may be of even greater concern. It has “registered 181 low-intensity exhalations” in recent days, and on Saturday it erupted explosively three times.

A catastrophic eruption of Mt. Popocatepetl would be a nightmare beyond anything that we have witnessed in the modern history of Mexico. The volcano sits only about 50 miles away from Mexico City, and there are close to 25 million people living in the Mexico City metropolitan area. In recent years, smoke and ash from minor eruptions of Mt. Popocatepetl have reached the city, but most people living there have absolutely no idea how immensely powerful the volcano truly is.

Popocatepetl is an ancient Aztec word that can be translated as “smoking mountain”, and centuries ago enormous mud flows from the mountain buried entire Aztec cities

Historians tell us that Popocatepetl had a dramatic impact on the ancient Aztecs. Giant mud flows produced by massive eruptions covered entire Aztec cities. In fact, some of these mud flows were so large that they buried entire pyramids in super-heated mud.

But we haven’t witnessed anything like that in any of our lifetimes, so it is hard to even imagine devastation of that magnitude.

In addition to Mexico City’s mammoth population, there are millions of others that live in the surrounding region. Overall, there are about 25 million people that live in the immediate vicinity of Popocatepetl. Thankfully, we haven’t seen a major eruption of the volcano in modern times, but at some point that will change.

As seismic activity rattles Mexico, many living on the California coast are beginning to take notice.

In fact, it is being reported that there was a run on emergency supplies after a magnitude 3.3 earthquake struck near San Jose…

Last week residents of San Jose were reportedly stocking up on emergency supplies over fears the area will be hit by a massive earthquake.

The city was shaken by a number of tremors including a strong 3.3 magnitude quake that was felt throughout the region.

San Jose is situated precariously close to the San Andreas fault line, an 800-mile fissure that runs almost the length of California.

Scientists agree that large swathes of southern California – including Los Angeles and San Diego – are long overdue a “Big One” earthquake of magnitude 7 or more.

And just last Friday, it was reported that a magnitude 5.7 earthquake “struck off the northern coast of California”

A preliminary-magnitude 5.7 earthquake struck off the coast of Northern California on Friday afternoon, but there was no threat of a tsunami, officials said.

The quake’s epicenter was 133.6 miles west-southwest of Eureka, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Its depth was measured at 3.6 miles.

Scientists assure us that someday the west coast will be hit by a major tsunami. It literally is just a matter of time. In fact, the Los Angeles Times reported on one study that discovered that a magnitude 9.0 earthquake along the Cascadia fault could potentially produce a tsunami which would “wash away coastal towns”…

If a 9.0 earthquake were to strike along California’s sparsely populated North Coast, it would have a catastrophic ripple effect.

A giant tsunami created by the quake would wash away coastal towns, destroy U.S. 101 and cause $70 billion in damage over a large swath of the Pacific coast. More than 100 bridges would be lost, power lines toppled and coastal towns isolated. Residents would have as few as 15 minutes notice to flee to higher ground, and as many as 10,000 would perish.

Scientists last year published this grim scenario for a massive rupture along the Cascadia fault system, which runs 700 miles off shore from Northern California to Vancouver Island.

And don’t forget about the volcanoes on the west coast either. Mt. Rainier is known as “the most dangerous mountain in America” for a reason, and in my apocalyptic novel entitled The Beginning Of The End I show why this is the case. Someday Mt. Rainier will erupt again, and you don’t want to be around what that happens.

As recent weeks have clearly demonstrated, our planet is become increasingly unstable.

For the moment, much of the American population is still extremely complacent, but I have a feeling that won’t last for too much longer. A great shaking is coming, and most people in this country will be completely blindsided by it

Active Volcano Mt. Rainer Shaken By ‘Swarm’ Of 23 Earthquakes

by Tyler Durden

Sep 21, 2017 9:50 PM

Don’t panic – it’s only an active volcano. What’s the worst that could happen?

Some two dozen earthquakes have shaken Washington State’s Mt. Rainer over the past two weeks – but seismologists say people who live nearby shouldn’t panic.

“In the past, these swarms last a couple of days to a week or so and then die out,” said Paul Bodin, of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington.

The first of the 23 quakes struck on Sept. 11 near the volcano’s summit. The largest of the quakes registered magnitude 1.6. During the same period, Mexico experienced two of the deadliest earthquakes in decades.

According to the Seattle Times, earthquake swarms typically don’t signify that an eruption is imminent.

“So I’m treating this as a single eyebrow raised halfway,” [Bodin] wrote. “Yeah, I see you and will be watching, but I don’t think you’re going to attack.”

Most volcanic quake swarms are caused by changes in temperature or groundwater pressure underneath the volcano that causes cracking in the rocks. The recent quakes have been shallow, suggesting that they are not connected to the deep movement of magma – which would be a much more ominous signal.

While we might be tempted to dismiss the ongoing quake swarms under normal circumstances, persistent rumblings underneath another powerful volcano located two states over in Wyoming. The Yellowstone Caldera has experienced more than 1,400 low-level quakes since mid-June, alarming scientists who say that an eruption of the yellowstone “supervolcano” could cause potentially hundreds of thousands of deaths across the US.  Those quakes followed the strongest earthquake recorded in Montana in more than three decades. Anecdotally, it would seem, seismic activity across the US appears to be on the rise.

To be sure, the ST said Rainier experienced similar upticks in the past two years, and a more sustained episode in 2009.

But totally writing off the threat seems foolish.
