Historic-artifact replica, or demonic harbinger?

Arch of Baal emerging again, and again, and again

Published: 2 days ago

Original arch of Palmyra in Syria

It’s back!

The replica of the arch of the Temple of Baal has been on a world tour the past few years, having been put on display in London, New York and then Dubai for a global summit. And it was recently rebuilt for yet another global summit, this time the G7 meeting of the leading industrialized nations held in Florence, Italy.

The arch, a reconstruction of an ancient Roman building destroyed by ISIS in Syria, has been promoted by its creators at the Institute of Digital Technology as a symbol of defiance against terrorism and a tribute to world heritage.

But why is a reconstruction of a gateway to a temple of a pagan god whose rites were marked by child sacrifice and ritual prostitution being so persistently publicized at globally important gatherings?

One rabbi, a member of the nascent Sanhedrin attempting to recreate the ancient Jewish legal body, sees dire implications in the repeated use of the arch. Rabbi Daniel Assur told Breaking Israel News the arch is a harbinger of the “New World Order.” He declared the arch’s repeated appearances at prominent locations indicate “a pattern moving toward a specific goal – Messiah.”

The rabbi believes the globalist movement isn’t secular or atheist but, instead, undergirded by pagan spirituality.

“They combine worship of Baal with worship of the Egyptian god, Isis, and also the true name of God,” he told Breaking Israel News. “They need to bring together all of these elements.”

The rabbi believes the arch “is the portal for the new world the Talmud is talking about” and could be used either by the New World Order or the Messiah.

Pastor Carl Gallups, author of the end times examination “When The Lion Roars,” said people are right to ascribe deep spiritual significance to the arch.

“Rabbi Assur is not the only one who sees the spiritual significance in the Palmyra arch’s victory tour,” he told WND.

“I understand the purely cultural, historical and archaeological significance of the arch, which some might find interesting. However, the biblical and spiritual implications cannot be missed, for those who have ‘eyes to see.’

“What are the facts? The arch is representative of the ‘gateway’ to … a Roman temple in Syria that was dedicated to the worship of Baal. It is also a fact that Jesus himself, along with the Jewish religious leaders of His day, defined Baal worship as being directly connected to the worship of Satan and his demonic influence (Matt. 12:24-28, Mark 3:22, Luke 11:18).”

Gallups also said it is profoundly interesting – and worrying – that the arch always seems to be in a location of deep significance to the elite-driven movement to create a global government.

“It is a heavily documented fact that when the Palmyra arch was reconstructed, the places chosen for the display of the arch, complete with ceremonious activities of dedication and honor, were indisputably centers of globalistic power,” Gallups observed.

“Each of these locations had direct connections to the United Nations, the World Government Summit, the G7 Conference and the major economic engines of the world. And this tour started in London, perhaps the world’s most important financial capital, during the pagan festival of Beltane – during a time specifically dedicated to Baal worship. From there, it went to New York City and then to global governance meetings.

“How could anyone, with any spiritual discernment at all, miss the demonic message being audaciously broadcast to the world?” Gallups asked.

He warned that the global leaders are meddling with dark forces.

“In the spiritual realm, it is as if Satan is ‘marking’ his territory,” the pastor said. “And the leaders of the world are gladly doing his bidding – even summonsing his presence and ‘blessings.’ We are living in extremely prophetic times. The demonic realm is engaged in an unprecedented outpouring, just as the Bible said would happen. We are living in the most prophetic times since the first coming of Jesus Christ.”

Extraordinary events predicted centuries in advance are unfolding now. Here is your guide to the incredible prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Don’t miss the bestselling sensation from one of America’s most prolific and beloved pastors. “When the Lion Roars: Understanding the Implications of Ancient Prophecies for Our Time” by Carl Gallups, available now in the WND Superstore.

Rabbi Assur also told Breaking Israel News the Roman arch was a symbol of how “the culture of paganic [sic] Rome is taking over Christianity,” and said “Christianity must be taken back from Roman culture.”

Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, author of the new book “God’s Day Timer,” and a leader in the movement to reintroduce Jewish practices into the church, strongly agrees.

“The culture of pagan Rome took over Christianity almost 2,000 years ago!” he said. “Around 300 CE the church thought it best to completely assimilate pagan worship with their new religion. The concept of biblical holiness was not in their thinking. We find this true today.

“With all the seeker-friendly churches and pastors becoming life coaches rather than godly examples to the flock it is no surprise we have come to this moment. Right here in Tacoma, Washington, we have churches that follow all the pagan holidays, including Halloween, and their excuse is they use it for evangelistic purposes.”

Biltz called for Christian churches to remove pagan traditions from their worship services and to rediscover the Hebraic roots of their religion.

“God declared to Israel that they were to wipe out the names of the pagan gods and have no mixture,” the pastor said. “But today many church leaders have no problem mixing the God of the Bible with paganism in their worship as long as they can continue to bring in the revenue. It is much like in the time of Jesus when the religious leaders were more concerned about losing their place than they were in following the Messiah.

“It’s too late to take Christianity back from its pagan culture. It’s been totally assimilated. Instead, believers in Jesus need to get back to the Bible and understand it from a Hebraic worldview. Every culture has tried to create another Jesus that conforms to their own people group. They all try to make God in their image rather than realizing they were created in His image.”

Bill Cloud, another proponent of using Jewish traditions within Christianity and the author of “Esau Rising,” agreed neo-paganism is a real spiritual threat.

“I do believe Western civilization is abandoning Judeo-Christian values and reverting to a more secular worldview, if not outright paganism,” he told WND.

However, he suggested the arch is an outward manifestation of a deeper moral decline taking place in Western culture.

“As for the arch, I do not believe it to be of any great import in and of itself; it’s the thoughts and imagination behind it that I find disturbing and potentially dangerous,” the pastor said. “In Genesis 11, it was not the Tower of Babel itself that God considered to be a threat – it was the imaginations of man that conceived of it and then brought into being. That’s what had to be curtailed.

“When it comes to the New World Order, I don’t believe it will rise and fall based on the existence of an arch. But that arch and its affiliation with Baal worship speaks to the depraved state of mankind’s heart and mind presently. That is what we need to be concerned about because that is what will bring the NWO into being.”

Still, though Cloud is concerned by much of what is happening in the world, he urges believers to look forward to the future. After all, he said, Messiah’s victory is assured.

“When it comes to the Messiah, I do not look for Him to walk through this portal but I am looking for Him,” he said. “Actually, the Bible tells us that when He returns, a portal in heaven will be opened through which He will descend. Soon after He will enter through the Eastern gate of Jerusalem, a gate that is currently sealed. When this happens, all kings, kingdoms and world orders will bow before Him.”

Trump Administration Notified Of ‘Imminent Threat To US Nuclear Facilities’ From ‘Wave Of Catastrophic Earthquakes About To Start’

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

According to this May 12, 2017 press release from the International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center, President Donald Trump’s Secretary of Energy Rick Perry has been notified of an imminent threat to US nuclear facilities from a wave of catastrophic earthquakes that is about to start.

The IEVPC is a non-profit science research organization made up of scientists and contractors from around the world with a Mission and Objectives as described below:

The Mission of the International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center, Inc. (IEVPC) is to develop the best possible means for protection of the people on Earth through early prediction of catastrophic geophysical events (CGE) such as earthquakes, associated tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.

Reporting within their press release that the determination of the scope and scale of this threat is based on years of seismic and climate research by IEVPC scientists that has culminated in the recent publication of the book titled “Upheaval! Why Catastrophic Earthquakes Will Soon Strike the United States”, we see the IEVPC’s warnings being echoed now in stories from around the internet and the world that ‘the big one’ is near and there is nothing that can be done to stop it.

According to the LA Times story the Drudge Report linked to on Wednesday, fear of earthquakes is a normal part of life in California so people deal with it in different ways – some prepare by retrofitting homes and apartments while for others, that fear prompts denial and a willful ignorance of the dangers which they face the Times reports.

Despite the denial, the dangers people face are very real and the LA Times story is a perfect example of stressing the need for preparation for an event which we pray never comes yet, as scientists and experts warn in this particular case, WILL come one day no matter how much people want to deny it. And as we detail below, there are several very good reasons why scientists believe ‘the big one’ is a matter of ‘when’, not ‘if’, as more and more evidence indicates an ‘upheaval’ in the future.

Seismologist Lucy Jones has spent her career trying to understand public attitudes about earthquakes, with a focus on moving people past paralysis and denial.

Jones said the way experts like her used to talk about earthquakes wasn’t very effective. They tended to focus on the probability of a major earthquake striking in the next 30 years — the length of a typical home mortgage. They also took pains to say what they didn’t know, which she now believes allowed the public to tune out and hope for the best.

Now she is making a dramatically different point. She said that in a keynote speech to international scientists in Japan on May 21, she emphasized that a devastating earthquake will definitely happen, and that there is much the public can do to protect themselves.

Denial may getting a bit harder these days. Over the last several years, a few California cities have taken dramatic steps to require retrofits of thousands of vulnerable buildings. And next year, scientists and the U.S. Geological Survey are expected to unveil the first limited public phase of an earthquake early-warning system that would eventually offer seconds and perhaps more than a minute of warning through smartphones and computers.

In this new story from the Daily Mail they report that according to a new scientific research study, global exposure to natural disasters has doubled since 1975 with 1 out of every 3 of us now at risk of earthquakes, the largest ‘natural disaster hazard’ that people now face. With a massive landslide recently wiping out a large part of the Pacific Coast Highway being the latest ‘Earth changes’ to remind California they’re quite literally sitting ducks, we see much of the state in the ‘highest hazard’ zone as seen in the map above and at this Earthquake hazard ranking website called Temblor.

While California and the San Andreas fault understandably grab much of the attention that’s given to possible devastating earthquakes in the future along the west coast, as we’ve previously reported on ANP, what could be a much more dangerous geophysical hazard to the US lies further north and several hundred miles off of the coast in what is known as the Juan de Fuca Plate.

As we read in this story and hear in the 2nd video below, scientists are interested in Juan de Fuca because the miniature plate is the single greatest geophysical threat to the United States. Researchers believe Juan de Fuca’s subduction beneath North America’s continental plate could yield megaquakes several orders of magnitude more powerful than the San Andreas Fault’s largest tremors.

As we see in the image below, the Juan de Fuca Plate lies between the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate and is ever so slowly pushing up on the North American Plate, with the potential to cause quakes MUCH more powerful than the San Andreas Fault according to scientists. From Phys.org:

Several hundred miles off the Pacific Northwest coast, a small tectonic plate called the Juan de Fuca is slowly sliding under the North American continent. This subduction has created a collision zone with the potential to generate huge earthquakes and accompanying tsunamis, which happen when faulted rock abruptly shoves the ocean out of its way.

In fact, this region represents the single greatest geophysical hazard to the continental United States; quakes centered here could register as hundreds of times more damaging than even a big temblor on the San Andreas Fault. Not surprisingly, scientists are interested in understanding as much as they can about the Juan de Fuca Plate.

With the Juan de Fuca Plate helping to create the ‘Cascadia Subduction Zone’, we remind you of the 2016 Cascadia Rising earthquake and tsunami drills that simulated a 9.0 magnitude quake pummeling the region and the resultant tsunami leaving devastation in its path that could be felt all the way to the East coast with possible cascading utility outages while leaving up to or more than 10,000 dead and possibly millions more displaced.

As we also read from Temblor and see in their ‘hazard map’ below, there are numerous faults along the West coast just ready to pop, making the entire West coast region the most hazardous for earthquakes in America by far. As this May 19th story from Temblor reported, the Gulf of California had recently been the home to a series of ‘rapid rupture’ quakes that portend more danger ahead.

Any examination of possibly catastrophic earthquakes in America cannot be complete without looking at the New Madrid fault zone, a region which has been home to some of the most devastating quakes ever recorded in US history and while the 1811 and 1812 quakes covered over a million square miles and were felt as far away as the East coast, the population in that region then was nothing compared to what it is now.

As experts have warned, a New Madrid quake in 2017 could be responsible for ‘black sky days’ all across America with cascading power outages caused by a large quake there, and if history is a guide, it could get much worse.

The 150-mile long New Madrid Seismic Zone in New Madrid, Missouri, is the source of the concern, and is also thought to be overdue for a massive tremor, which would impact seven states – Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi.

It has not seen significant earthquakes for more than 200 years. In the winter of 1811 and 1812 there were three earthquakes of magnitude 7 – as high as 7.7 – and a series of aftershocks across the American Midwest. The results were catastrophic, with the course of the Mississippi being diverted, chasms ripping open, and volcanoes of sand and water bursting through the ground.

The Mid-America Earthquake Center at the University of Illinois released a report in 2009, which suggested the effects of a force seven or stronger quake from the fault line. Amr Elnashai, the study’s lead author, wrote “All hell will break loose.”

The predicted scenario saw close to 715,000 buildings, including 130 hospitals, and 3,500 bridges damaged. Deaths and injuries were estimated at 86,000 with a combined loss of $300billion.

The Central US Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC) is based next to Memphis Airport. James Wilkinson, its director, fears the Mississippi would be released from an engineered prison of levees, causing maximum damage. He told The Atlantic: “The thing that, to me, makes the river scary is how much industry we have along it: there’s power plants, there’s chemical plants, there’s ports.

“And the river might change course altogether. “I mean if we’re at flood stage, it’s kind of the worst-of-the-worst case scenario. “We’ve had earthquakes, we’ve had damage, but nothing like what we’ve seen in other parts of the world. So the clock’s ticking.”

In the 1st video below, Joe from the Daily Sheeple breaks down the recent viral LA Times story for us and shares some practically prepping tips and knowledge that anybody living in an earthquake-prone zone should know. Of course, many aspects of ‘earthquake prepping’ can be used in prepping for other emergencies and disasters as well.

And while we’re not into the ‘earthquake prediction business’, studies have shown time and again that creatures in the ocean and animals living upon the planet can tell in advance such devastation is coming being much more in touch with the ‘cycle’s of nature’ than most people living in ‘concrete and steel’ jungles across America, many with their heads permanently attached to their cell phones.

As the National Geographic has reportedthe belief that animals can predict earthquakes has been around for centuries. In 373 B.C., historians recorded that animals, including rats, snakes and weasels, deserted the Greek city of Helice in droves just days before a quake devastated the place. As we reported on ANP back on May 9th, it’s been shown time and again, deep sea creatures often ‘sense’ way ahead of an earthquake that something is about to happen and research has shown that some will often come to the surface before one.

As this Wikipedia entry on ‘electroperception’ reports, electroreception is the biological ability to perceive natural electrical stimuli and it has been proposed that sharks can use their acute electric sense to detect the earth’s magnetic field by detecting the weak electric currents induced by their swimming or by the flow of ocean currents. How many other animals have such abilities? It’s also been reported that dogs can sense earthquakes ahead of time and it’s well known in the medical field, some dogs can sense a seizure in a person before one begins. So up for discussion, since we’re also officially ‘mammals’, shouldn’t we have such ‘abilities’ as well?

More Evidence Emerges ‘Planet Nine’ Is Really ‘Planet X’ aka ‘Nibiru’ And If That ‘Conspiracy Theory’ Is True, None Of The Others May Really Matter

Will The Truth About One Of The Most Censored Stories In History Soon Be Revealed?

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

December 30th, 1983 Washington Post story claimed ‘mysterious heavenly body’ found in the direction of the Constellation Orion. December 30th, 2016 story from NASA claims: “at aphelion, Planet Nine would be in the general location of the Orion and Taurus constellations.”

ANP recently received an interesting email from a reader which began: ALL news is just a distraction from your real problem, Planet X. Still officially ‘undiscovered’, as we see outlined in the stories and videos below, new evidence has emerged that ‘Planet X’ is indeed out there lurking, rebranded ‘Planet Nine’, and confirming some very old news stories.

With ‘Planet X’ or ‘Nibiru’ still called ‘conspiracy theory’ or ‘fake news’ by the mainstream media, we asked on ANP back on December 2nd of 2016 “Is The Biggest Cover-Up Of All-Time About To Come Crashing Down?” while reminding you of two 1983 stories, one each from the Washington Post and the New York Times. Well the search for ‘Planet X’ goes on, rebranded in this new BBC News story as the search for ‘Planet Nine’.

As ANP reported then, back on January 30th of 1983, the NY Times published a story called “Clues Get Warm In The Search For Planet X” in which they reported: SOMETHING out there beyond the farthest reaches of the known solar system seems to be tugging at Uranus and Neptune. Some gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object that may be the long-sought Planet X.

Reporting then upon the launching of the ‘Infrared Astronomical Satellite’ that would conduct a wide-ranging survey of nearly all of the sky over the following 6 to 8 months, detecting sources of not only ordinary light but of infrared radiation invisible to the human eye and absorbed by the atmosphere, scientists hoped they’d be able to chart thousands of previously undetected objects in the sky – with a dim hope of finding ‘Planet X’.

Less than a year later on December 30th of 1983, the Washington Post published a story called “Possibly As Large As Jupiter” within which they reported in their first paragraph: A heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescope aboard the U.S. infrared astronomical satellite.

The same US ‘Infrared Astronomical Satellite’ the NY Times story had mentioned would be ‘searching for Planet X’ had found ‘a heavenly body’ scientists described then as:

So mysterious is the object that astronomers do not know if it is a planet, a giant comet, a nearby “protostar” that never got hot enough to become a star, a distant galaxy so young that it is still in the process of forming its first stars or a galaxy so shrouded in dust that none of the light cast by its stars ever gets through.

“All I can tell you is that we don’t know what it is,” Dr. Gerry Neugebauer, IRAS chief scientist for California’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and director of the Palomar Observatory for the California Institute of Technology, said in an interview.

Found in the direction of the constellation Orion according to the 1983 Washington Post story, talk of ‘Planet X’ soon vanished from the mainstream media and for many, many years until this very day, those who speak of ‘Nibiru’ or ‘Planet X’ online are ridiculed, called ‘tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorists’ and worse by those unable to grasp that there may be another planet out there in our solar system and it just may be ‘Biblical’.

While many years passed without much mention of ‘Planet X’ in the mainstream media, 2016 brought us the hypothetical ‘Planet Nine’, a massive yet still officially undiscovered ‘heavenly body’ that the mainstream media had no choice but to cover after Cal Tech University scientists Konstantin Batygin and Michael E. Brown explained how a massive outer planet would be the likeliest explanation for the similarities in orbits of six distant objects. 


Dubbed ‘Planet Nine’ after the ‘death of Pluto’, scientists explained how ‘Planet Nine’ could be responsible for many of the mysteries our solar system still poses. Space.com published a story on October 19th of 2016 called “Did The Mysterious ‘Planet Nine’ Tilt The Solar System” while Astronomy.com published a story the same day called “Planet Nine May Be Responsible For Tilting The Sun”. On October 23rd of 2016 Forbes ran a story called “Mysterious ‘Planet Nine’ May Be Pulling Our Solar System Out Of Whack”. Were all of those just ‘fake news’ stories?

Interestingly enough, ‘Planet 9’ is also believed to be located in the constellation Orion. Is it just a coincidence that ‘Planet 9’ is in the same general location that the Washington Post reported ‘a mysterious heavenly body’ was in all the way back in 1983, what the NY Times had referred to as ‘Planet X’ before they ALL went silent? Is ‘Planet Nine’ the ‘same beast’ as ‘Planet X’? With a 10,000 to 20,000 year orbit, it would still be in the same general vicinity of the sky now that it was way back in 1983.

In the first video below, videographer Path to Ascension shares with us this new story from ABC in Australia which reports that scientists have invited amateur or professional astronomers within the public to help search the skies for ‘the elusive Planet Nine’. Our videographer points out to us why they call it ‘Planet Nine’ for if they called it ‘Nibiru’ or ‘Planet X’, the unaware masses would get a much different picture of this Biblical planet than if they’re merely searching for information on ‘Planet Nine’.

With an orbit astronomers believe takes 10,000 to 20,000 years to make one trip around the sun, the curious might ask what happened here on our little speck of dust in the universe the last time this beast came around 10,000+ years ago? Putting us back to prior to the floods of Noah, what might a planet that scientists claim may be responsible for tilting our sun or solar system be able to do to the axial tilt of our own planet Earth should it come for a return pass?

As Susan Duclos reported on ANP back on April 7th of 2016, according to Daniel Whitmire, a retired professor astrophysics at the University of Arkansas, ‘Planet Nine’ aka ‘X’ could be responsible for a series of mass extinctions that have already happened upon planet Earth by casting Kuiper Belt objects into the inner solar system. Called ‘perturbing’ by the previously mentioned 1983 Washington Post story, one of the nicknames for ‘Planet Nine’ given by the Cal Tech astronomers who ‘discovered’ it is, quite appropriately, ‘the perturber’.

As we hear in the 2nd video below from Higher Truth Channel, a ‘mysterious phenomenon’ is now creating solar winds so dense, even NASA is unable to censor them. Claiming we’re witnessing a signature of ‘planet X’ that he shows us include abnormalities of the magnetosphere and extra radiation from the sun, the very interesting race to discover ‘Planet Nine’ as outlined in the first video below proves to us NASA scientists know something we don’t know…yet. Investment Watch Blog also recently reported upon this powerful wave of energy that recently struck our planet Earth.

The final video below is a classic for those who haven’t heard it yet as Steve Quayle interviews ‘Planet X’ investigator Bob Fletcher. Fletcher shares with us many different aspects of ‘elite preparation’ for a huge event that he had witnessed in his lifetime including the movement of massive amounts of long term survival food to highly secretive underground locations. Fletcher also discusses millions and millions of dollars of missing money and the many reasons why he believes the 1% have long been preparing for a ‘Biblical’ event.

Prominent Rabbi Predicts Earthquakes, Plane Crashes and War, But Israel Safe From Chaos

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz March 6, 2017 , 12:30 pm

“For the Lord GOD will do nothing but He revealeth His counsel unto His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7 (The Israel Bible™)

As more of Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi’s past predictions come true, a recent sermon, predicting disasters including earthquakes, storms, and plane crashes as a result of divine judgement in response to political events, takes on powerful relevance to today’s times.

In his weekly sermon on Friday, Rabbi Ben Artzi,a prominent Israeli mystical rabbi, warned that these are exceptional times, with dire consequences waiting to happen. The mystical rabbi goes went great detail explaining current events in a new light, describing the cause-and-effect from an end-of-days perspective.

“The times will continue to be difficult and the judgements will continue to grow stronger: floods, volcanic eruptions, fires and heat, evil spirits, storms and earthquakes. Buildings will disappear into the ground – the ground will open up and swallow places in the world. Planes will collide and get lost, ships will get lost and sink.”

His predictions follow a number of similar incidents. Last summer saw a wave of major earthquakes, including a 7.8 magnitude quake in Ecuador that killed over 500 people, and a 7.3 magnitude quake in Japan that killed over 50. Seismologists predict many more, in a phenomenon prophecy connects to the end-of days. And while lost planes are uncommon in these technologically-advanced days, it is nearly three years to the day since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished into thin air.

Rabbi Ben Artzi’s other predictions focused on the Middle East, ranging from impact of Donald Trump’s presidency on Israel to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and radical Islam.

The rabbi had words of reassurance for Trump supporters who believe the president will be good for the Jewish State, asserting, “Trump is doing his real work in secret, in order to fix all the things that were made crooked.

“He doesn’t like to make this things public, and if he hasn’t yet done what he promised, he will.”

One prominent campaign promise that has yet to materialize is the much-discussed moving of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This weekend, however, with little fanfare or coverage in the media, a delegation of two congressmen arrived in Israel to begin scouting locations for the embassy in Jerusalem and putting the move into motion.

Moving on to the possibility of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, Rabbi Ben Artzi predicted there would be no advances in negotiations, explaining that coexistence runs counter to the spiritual inclination of the Arabs.

“The Palestinians and Hamas don’t want peace,” he pronounced. “It is inscribed in their hearts to hate the Jews and to expel them from Israel. The Palestinians can live anywhere else in the Middle East, but they choose to cope with the difficulties in Israel in order to have a chance to harm the Jews.”

Despite their nefarious goals, however, he continued, the Arab world, even avowed enemies ISIS and Iran, will fail to harm Israel.

In fact, ISIS has an unexpected place in the divine plan – its role is actually to protect Israel from its enemies.

“ISIS will not be wiped out. God does not want it wiped out,” the rabbi said. “ISIS creates complications all over the world in certain countries so that they will leave Israel alone. ISIS and the Muslims hate Christians more than they hate Jews.”

Indeed, despite the combined effort of all the world’s superpowers, including US forces and the Russian military, ISIS has yet to be defeated. Since its founding in 2014, ISIS has committed dozens of terror attacks in Europe and Turkey and killed hundreds of civilians, apart from its genocidal plan to wipe out all non-Muslims within its territories.

As for Iran, Israel has little to fear — but America does, the respected leader said.

“Iran is still working to produce nuclear weapons,” the rabbi said. “America can use the [nuclear] agreement to reveal all the nuclear sites in Iran. But Israel is not in danger from these nuclear weapons. The threat of Iranian nuclear weapons is to America and the rest of the world.”

Rabbi Ben Artzi has made similar predictions in the past that have come true in shocking detail. Last month, Breaking Israel News reported a prediction made by the rabbi that black magic will make a comeback in the world, focused on world leaders like US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Less than two weeks later, opponents of President Trump gathered outside Trump Tower in New York City in an attempt to curse the president and his supporters, sending out a call on social media for others to join in, with detailed instructions on how to perform the black magic.

Another of the rabbi’s predictions that materialized concerned Russia providing Iran with the advanced S-300 anti-aircraft weapons system last summer.

“These missiles, which can shoot down practically any plane, will get a virus in their computers, and go crazy,” Rabbi Ben Artzi reassured his followers in September. “They will blow up inside their bunkers. The launcher will blow up underneath them.”

Is Something Strange Happening Inside The Earth?

By Michael Snyder, on February 28th, 2017

Why are “giant fountains of lava” suddenly pouring out of some of the most dangerous volcanoes on the entire planet, and why are so many long dormant volcanoes suddenly roaring back to life?  The spectacular eruption of Mt. Etna in Italy is making headlines all over the world, but it is far from alone.  According to Volcano Discovery, 35 major volcanoes either are erupting right now or have just recently erupted, and dozens of others are stirring.  So what is causing this upsurge in volcanic activity?  Is something strange happening inside the Earth?

According to the USGS, magma is “molten rock underground”, and lava is molten rock “that breaks through the Earth’s surface”.  Right now, something is pushing magma up through the crust of the Earth at a number of key spots around the planet.  On the island of Sicily, the “giant fountains of lava” that are coming out of Mt. Etna can be seen 30 kilometers away

Giant fountains of lava could be seen sprouting from the volcano, located on the isle of Sicily, as far away as Catania, around 30 kilometres away, and the resort town of Taormina.

The Meteorological Observatory in Nunziata said: “You can clearly see the lava fountains, although currently modest, as it escapes from the crater in the southeast.”

An orange air alert has been issued, meaning that airspace will remain open but authorities will continue to monitor the situation.

On the other side of the world, a constant stream of molten rock has been springing out of Guatemala’s “Volcano of Fire” since February 25th

Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire erupted Saturday (Feb 25), spewing lava and sending up plumes of ash that rained down on nearby communities and could eventually reach the capital, civil protection authorities said.

The Volcan de Fuego, one of the country’s three active volcanoes, is located about 45km southwest of the capital Guatemala City. It was the volcano’s second eruption this year.

And in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a “firehose of lava” has been pouring out of the Kilauea Volcano since December 31st.

Meanwhile, a number of large volcanoes that have been dormant for a very long time all over the world have started springing back to life.

For instance, the only active volcano in India has suddenly started “spewing lava and ash” after being silent for 150 years…

Barren Islands volcano, India’s only active volcano, is reportedly spewing lava and ash after a gap of 150 years. It erupted for about four hours in January, scientists from the National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) claimed.

The volcano is situated in Barren Islands in the Andaman & Nicobar archipelago. Some unsubstantiated reports even claim that it is South Asia’s only active volcano.

Its first recorded eruption dates back to 1787. Since then, the volcano has erupted more than ten times, including the one this year.

At one time scientists would speak of “dead volcanoes”, but now we learning that it really isn’t safe to speak of any volcano as being completely “dead”.  So many of these long dormant volcanoes are roaring back to life, and why this is suddenly happening now is puzzling many of the experts.

And as you have seen, this isn’t isolated to just one or two geographic regions.  It literally is happening all over the globe.

Last month, Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung in the southern hemisphere erupted seven times in the space of a single day, and meanwhile authorities in the northern hemisphere were warning us that four of Iceland’s biggest volcanoes are preparing to erupt.

Indonesia and Iceland are about as far apart as you can get, and yet they are both being affected by this worldwide phenomenon.

Without a doubt, something definitely appears to be causing a significant increase in worldwide seismic activity.

Let’s talk about earthquakes for a moment.  A website known as the Big Wobble recently published an article that included two extraordinary maps.  The first map showed the number of major earthquakes from January 1900 to January 1917, and the second map showed the number of major earthquakes from January 2000 to January 2017.  The difference between the two maps was startling to say the least.

It is becoming extremely difficult to deny that something is happening to the crust of our planet, and many are becoming concerned about what we could soon experience if the level of seismic activity continues to rise.

We already talked about Mt. Etna, but a much greater threat in Italy appears to be awakening under the city of Naples.  A massive supervolcano known as “Campi Flegrei” is close to a “critical state”, and if it erupts the consequences will be beyond catastrophic.  The following comes from National Geographic

A long-quiet yet huge supervolcano that lies under 500,000 people in Italy may be waking up and approaching a “critical state,” scientists report this week in the journal Nature Communications.

Based on physical measurements and computer modeling, “we propose that magma could be approaching the CDP [critical degassing pressure] at Campi Flegrei, a volcano in the metropolitan area of Naples, one of the most densely inhabited areas in the world, and where accelerating deformation and heating are currently being observed,” wrote the scientists—who are led by Giovanni Chiodini of the Italian National Institute of Geophysics in Rome.

If that supervolcano were to fully erupt, millions could die, the skies in the northern hemisphere would be darkened for months and the resulting “volcanic winter” would cause famines all around the globe.

And the same things could be said about the supervolcano that is awakening in North Korea too.

In the United States, we should be watching the volcanoes on the west coast for signs of trouble, and my regular readers know that I am particularly concerned about Mt. Rainier.  There is an eruption of Mt. Rainier in “The Beginning Of The End“, and it is in there for a reason.

Someday Mt. Rainier will erupt, and the horror that this will mean for the Northwest is beyond anything that I could put into words for you right now.

We live at a time when our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and a major natural disaster could change all of our lives in a single moment.

Just because our lives have been somewhat “normal” for an extended period of time does not mean that they will always be this way, and those that are ignoring the rumblings of our planet do so at their own peril.

Earth Anomalies Spread As ‘Huge Global Event Is Underway’ – Are Growing Fissures Across The Planet Another Sign Of More Earth Turmoil To Come?

And Why Are The Antarctic and Arctic Plates Shifting So Uniformly?

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

The largely overlooked story from The Watchers dated January 16th reported upon a large Earth fissure that has opened up in Northern Cape, South Africa. Still growing at nearly 1,000 feet long and nearly 100 feet deep, the crack in the Earth in South Africa has joined an increasing number of ‘Earth anomalies’ that have been occuring across our planet.

As we previously reported on ANP and was reported by NPR also on January 16th, a massive crack in the ice of Antarctica has scientists concerned after the crack grew to more than 90-miles in length. That crack was nearly a 1/3 of a mile deep and according to scientists there, had grown to more than 25 highway lanes wide and has since grown to more than 100 miles long.

The recent story from Live Science is appropriately titled “Splitsville” within which they report upon a 2-mile-long crack that has recently opened up in the Arizona desert. One of many cracks in the Arizona desert totaling many miles, questions are being asked why so many cracks in our planet Earth have recently been occuring as heard in the 1st video below in which our videographer explores all of the massive cracks across our planet Earth in the recent past.

And as we hear in the 2nd video below from The Higher Truth Channel, something very strange is now going on across our planet. As our videographer reports, “a global event is now going on” with many instruments measuring our magnetosphere recently taken down while our planet was awash in electrons. As our videographer tells us, “some of these pictures will make your jaws drop”.

Back on January 9th, Susan Duclos reported on ANP that something very strange was happening worldwide with our planet quite literally shaking and in this new story from The Watchers called “Why the Earth’s magnetic poles could be about to swap places – and how it would affect us”, they take a look at one theory that even the website Scientific American recently examined and came up with more questions than answers.

And while we don’t have all of the answers to the questions which they pose, one theory that has to be explored no matter how ‘far out there’ some might think it is ties directly to what astronomers are calling ‘Planet Nine’, the yet undiscovered behemoth within our solar system that astronomers have warned has the gravitational impact necessary to tilt our sun and solar system and which answers many unsolved questions about our solar system astronomers have long asked.

As we have previously asked on ANP, if such a monster exists, what effect might it have upon our own planet? Completely beyond the comprehension of most who are stuck in the ‘we know everything about our planet and solar system’ mindset, if ‘Planet Nine’ has so much mass it can alter the angle of our sun, it could surely cause havoc upon our planet.

Before you go and completely discount such a possibility, we take you back to the story from Scientific American dated July 9th of 2014 in which they reported “changes measured by the Swarm satellite show that our magnetic field is weakening 10 times faster than originally predicted, especially over the Western Hemisphere”.

What might that mean? From their story: “The scientists who conducted the study are still unsure why the magnetic field is weakening, but one likely reason is that Earth’s magnetic poles are getting ready to flip, said Rune Floberghagen, the ESA’s Swarm mission manager. In fact, the data suggest magnetic north is moving toward Siberia.”

And while scientists also say that they believe such a pole flip takes place over a lengthy period of time, hundreds to thousands of years, and have happened many times in the past, recently accumulated data proves to us these same scientists don’t know everything and are instead confused by what they’re witnessing.:

Scientists already know that magnetic north shifts. Once every few hundred thousand years the magnetic poles flip so that a compass would point south instead of north. While changes in magnetic field strength are part of this normal flipping cycle, data from Swarm have shown the field is starting to weaken faster than in the past. Previously, researchers estimated the field was weakening about 5 percent per century, but the new data revealed the field is actually weakening at 5 percent per decade, or 10 times faster than thought. As such, rather than the full flip occurring in about 2,000 years, as was predicted, the new data suggest it could happen sooner.

Are these massive cracks opening up across our planet tied to all of the recent seismic and volcanic activity that we’ve been witnessing across our planet as we’ve recently reported upon on ANP?

We’ve long believed that there is a tremendous amount of information that ‘the gatekeepers’ are hiding from us about our planet’s ‘true past’ and about our solar system and as the following videos explore, we may now be in the process of living through something truly historical if indeed warnings being given by some are about to come true.

And with astronomers recently announcing that ‘Planet Nine’ may soon be ‘officially found’, and possibly sometime in 2017 according to their guesses, a ‘massive awakening’ may soon be forced to take place. And we may finally get some answers to the many questions that lay before us now.

In the 3rd video below our videographer takes a look at the interesting circumstances surrounding the uniform shifting of the Arctic and the Antarctic plates while in the 4th video, he gives us evidence that all of the planets are now being affected by gigantic ‘planet nine’ in the sky. Meanwhile, in the final video below our videographer takes a look at all of the recent evidence that is emerging that all of the rapid changes and anomalies we’re witnessing indicates the Earth changes we’re now witnessing will continue to ramp up rather than be tamped down in the days, months and years ahead.

Top Bible Prophecy Stories of 2016

 By Jan Markell

www.olivetreeviews.org

At the end of each year I like to review how Bible prophecy played out during the year.  Seeing dark news items from a prophetic perspective causes the darkness to be more bearable.   I often post these stories to my “headlines” daily which can be found here.

 

These Tribulation stage-setting events aren’t in any particular order. But we must keep our eyes on Israel, God’s timepiece. The minute-hand is Jerusalem and the second-hand is the Temple Mount. They have all been prominent in the news.

 

1) Zechariah 12:3 became a blunt reality on December 23. This was the day the U.N. Security Council voted unanimously to come against Israel. America abstained which is essentially voting with the other members. She symbolically became the world’s burdensome stone. This was initiated and instigated by the President of the United States which means terrible repercussions are coming to this land. So Israel is to return to 1967 “Auschwitz” borders. The holy city of Jerusalem becomes “occupied territory.” And Israel is further isolated and alienated as predicted.

 

2) The great falling away didn’t stop falling in 2016. Many evangelical churches became nothing more than advocates for open borders and multiculturalism. The social gospel made such giant inroads and salvation issues became unrecognizable. Emergent/Postmodernism raged. Other churches fell into lukewarmness. Hardly any would deal with the issues of the day or the Lord’s return.

 

3) The longing for a “man with a plan” was never so prominent. Even CNN’s Home page begged for a man who could restore order. It asks in smaller print, “Is there a leader who can stop the chaos and heal America?”

 

4) II Timothy 3 character was on overdrive in 2016. Various presidential candidates were consumed with pride and self-aggrandizement. Values seemed to tank this past year. National industries featured same-sex ads with no shame. It seemed like everyone was drowning the lake of me-myself-I.


5) Israel’s re-convened Sanhedrin took the momentous step of nominating a High Priest for the Temple-
-for the first time since it’s destruction in 70 A.D.  The Tribulation Temple is in the works, even though the United Nations just declared this area off-limits to the Jews!

6) Israel struck Damascus in early December,
 targeting some weapons. This is a precursor to what is predicted in Isaiah 17:1.

7) God continues to intervene for His sovereign nation of Israel.
 In November, he sent a pillar of a cloud of dust and rain to push back ISIS on Israel’s border. See it here.He who keeps Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps (Psalm 121). The cloud of dust and rain stayed right at the border and did not cross into Israel.


8) There was stage-setting for the Tribulation’s natural disasters
 which will be far worse than anything the world has known thus far. Publications called many events “record setting,” “unprecedented,” and “of biblical proportion.”  The Bible calls them “birth pangs.”

9) The war on cash intensified.
 A few nations are banning cash and this will eventually lead to “Mark of the Beast” accounting. Technology was introduced that enables the total payment of goods and services using only an embedded chip.

10) Gog-Magog players are getting ready.
 Russia is the new power player in the Mideast thanks to America’s absence. So is Iran. Turkey is in chaos and looking to Russia for support. These are the three primary players in Ezekiel 38-39, although other nations participate.

11) Europe is in a meltdown–setting the unstable stage for the arrival of the Antichrist out of Europe
. Its godless culture welcomes all things dark and occultic. Their refugee policy has thrown the continent into chaos. It will welcome a “Mr. Fix-It” to calm the storm. On June 1 they had a literal Satanic ceremony as they dedicated the Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland. European leaders cheered this. Below is the demonic “goat man” who was celebrated. This was addressed by Amir Tsarfati at our October 15 conference.


12) The season of mocking the Lord’s return intensified.
 The Christian publication  “Christian Today” scorned the Lord’s return  and said a “zombie apocalypse” was more likely.

 

13) The predicted rise of evil continues as foretold in II Timothy 3:13.  A new term was introduced in late 2016: “Spirit Cooking.” It is too dark to write about but you can Google the information. We don’t recommend it for sensitive people. It is borne out of the occult followers of Satanist Aleister Crowley and it would have entered the White House and Oval Office had Hillary Clinton won. This may be the biggest reason the Left lost as many in the Clinton campaign were cheerleaders for this evil.


14) The run-up to the lawlessness in the Tribulation has begun. 
There was post-election rioting with the promise of much more to come — all a blatant rejection of Donald J. Trump. Barack Obama was the most lawless president in U.S. history. He even told illegals they could vote with no consequences. Now the Left is making daily comments about assassinating Donald Trump.


15) The gay agenda has turned blatant.
 Many major corporations promoted this with their national advertising. The “days of Noah” have returned as predicted by Jesus. The transgender agenda also flourished. In both cases Target led the way with promotion. 


16) The predicted rise in the persecution of Christians and Jews intensified.  
At the same time, some pastors were forced to turn over sermons for inspection in America and Christian businesses were hammered for trying to stand for righteousness. Yet Islam is protected and no condemnation can be given.


17) For most of these to play out required the prophesied rise in strong delusion (II Thess. 2:10-12).
 Those who take delight in mocking and rejecting Him, He will condemn, confuse their thinking, and cause them to believe fables. And they do! Remember, global warming is a greater danger than radical Islam. Today it would seem the Mad Hatter is in charge.

18) Technology giants came against righteousness once again.
 From Facebook to YouTube to Google to Twitter, their progressive agenda rejected a conservative and Christian message. The Christian film “I Am Not Ashamed” had their YouTube trailer taken down one year in advance, marginalizing ticket sales.

Things are not falling apart — they are falling into place.
 Can you hear the hoof beats of the four horsemen of the apocalypse in the distance?

 

I won’t be silent about the signs of the times. If Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not knowing the signs of His first coming, why would we not be expected to be aware of today’s apocalyptic signs?

 

Rise up, wake up and look up!

‘Earth Has Shifted’ Inuit Elder Warning Comes Back To Haunt Us As Something Big Is Happening Along The Ring of Fire

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

In December of 2014, the Inuit Elders issued a warning to NASA and the world, a warning that could very well explain the extreme weather and increasing activity being seen on the Ring of Fire today as yet another large magnitude, 7.9 earthquake, and subsequent Tsunami warning hits Papua New Guinea just this morning. Papua New Guinea sits on the Pacific Ocean’s Ring of Fire.

The Inuits are indigenous people that inhabit the arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland and throughout history their very lives have been dependent on being able to correctly forecast weather…. and they are warning NASA and the world that global warming isn’t the cause of what we are seeing with extreme weather, earthquakes and other events.

The earth has shifted, tilted or as they put it, “wobbled” to the north and they all agree “Their sky has changed!”

The elders maintain the Sun doesn’t rise were it used to, they have longer day light to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before. The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the same thing, their sky has changed.

The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic.

The elders all agree, they believe the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted to the North.
Note – The Big Wobble republished their piece in June 2016. ANP’s original report on the earth shifting from December 2014, here.

STRANGE VIBRATIONS, INCREASING INTENSITY OF EQ’S AND GIGANTIC HOLE FOUND IN OCEAN FLOOR

Fast forward to present day and we note that since that warning was issued, there have been a number of extreme weather events, and an astounding number of active volcanoes noted, as well as an increase in frequency and intensity of large magnitude earthquakes all along the Ring of Fire.

As Stefan Stanford reported on December 10, 2016, hours before the massive Solomon Islands earthquake struck, there was a strange and mysterious vibration detected on seismographs all across the planet, which had the whole planet “ringing like a bell.” As of yet, there is still no explanation as to what it was.

On December 15, 2016, it was reported that a gigantic hole in the ocean floor near Australia, approximately 60,000 square kilometres and is seven kilometres deep, could “cause catastrophic natural disasters,” with the Sun UK describing them as “apocalyptic earthquakes and tsunamis.” According to the Daily Mail “Geologists have for the first time seen and documented the Banda Detachment fault in eastern Indonesia,” which is part of the Ring of Fire.

The Ring of Fire, via Wiki:

The Ring of Fire is a major area in the basin of the Pacific Ocean where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. It has 452 volcanoes (more than 75% of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes). About 90% of the world’s earthquakes and 81% of the world’s largest earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire.
In late November it was reported that the long-held belief that the San Andreas fault, which is part of the Ring of Fire,  could only rupture in isolated sections, was countered in a recent study by federal, state and academic researchers that now say the entire fault could “unzip at once,” unleashing what has commonly been referred to as “The Big One.”

As many as 3.5 million homes could be damaged in an 8.3-magnitude quake along a roughly 500-mile portion of the fault—compared with 1.6 million homes damaged if only the northern part of the fault were to break, or 2.3 million if the southern piece ruptured.
A quick look at an index map of recent earthquakes in California and Nevada, found linked over at Steve Quayles website this morning, gives a very good visual of the how much activity is being seen in just that one area:

Taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, using a world map, from December 17, 2016, we see exactly how much seismic activity is happening in real time, along the Ring of Fire.

BOTTOM LINE

The Inuit elders provided warnings to NASA and to the world, warnings which had officials concerned, and since then we have seen disturbing reports as more and more scientists continue to warn of the “big one,” referring a mega-quake and catastrophic events, which will not only include earthquakes and tsunamis, but volcanic activity along the Ring of Fire as well.

For example, just days ago it was reported that “3 million cubic meters of lava are ready to blow in the air at Popocatepetl,” which according to Volcano Discovery, is part of the Rng of Fire as well.

Enormous Earthquakes Hit Both Sides Of The Pacific And Experts Warn The San Andreas Could ‘Unzip All At Once’

By Michael Snyder, on December 8th, 2016

Why is our planet shaking so violently all of a sudden? There have literally been dozens of significant earthquakes right along the Ring of Fire within the past 30 days, and two giant ones made headlines all over the globe on Thursday. First, a magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck off the coast of Humboldt County, California, and that was followed later in the day by a magnitude 7.8 earthquake in the Solomon Islands. But of course these latest earthquakes are just the latest examples of increased shaking along the outer perimeter of the Pacific Ocean. Experts are not quite sure what to make of all of this shaking, but they are warning that “the Big One” could strike the west coast at literally any time.

Let’s start by discussing the historic earthquake that just hit the Solomon Islands. According to the Washington Post, it was originally determined to be a magnitude 8.0 earthquake before being downgraded to a 7.8…

A massive earthquake erupted along a fault line near the Solomon Islands in the southwest Pacific Ocean on Thursday. The quake was originally detected as a magnitude-8 by the U.S. Geological Service, but has since been reduced to a 7.8 on the Moment-Magnitude scale.

It was followed by a 5.5-magnitude quake, and aftershocks continue to roll through.

Subsequently, that earthquake was followed by 20 extremely large aftershocks that all fell into a range between magnitude 4.8 and magnitude 6.5. All of this violent seismic activity seems to have shook the entire planet to at least some degree, because monitoring stations all over the world were experiencing strange “vibrations” as aftershock after aftershock shook the Solomon Islands.

Prior to all of this shaking in the Solomon Islands, a magnitude 6.5 earthquake off the coast of California rattled residents of Humboldt County.

Fortunately the quake was far enough offshore that not a lot of damage was done, but it is being reported that those living in the region could feel the ground rolling

Bonnie Brower, owner of the Ferndale Pie Company, told The Associated Press she was grabbing something from the fridge in the restaurant’s kitchen when the quake happened. She didn’t see any damage, but said says felt a “big jolt.”

“I just felt this very huge jerk and I didn’t know what it was,” Brower said to The AP. Afterward, it felt like the ground was rolling, “like you were on a boat.”

In recent months there has been a lot of earthquake activity along the west coast, and this has raised fears that “the Big One” could be coming soon.

And Fox News recently reported that a major study has concluded that it is likely that someday the 800-mile-long San Andreas fault “could unzip all at once”…

For years, scientists believed the mighty San Andreas—the 800-mile-long fault running the length of California where the Pacific and North American plates meet—could only rupture in isolated sections.

But a recent study by federal, state and academic researchers showed that much of the fault could unzip all at once, unleashing a rare, singular catastrophe. Now, insurers have used that research to come up with a new analysis of the damage that could be caused by statewide break of the San Andreas.

I don’t know about you, but to me that does not sound good.

But because things have been so quiet in California for the last several decades, most people living in the region seem to greatly underestimate the threat.

Those living on the west coast have been hearing the same warnings year after year, and many of them have become convinced that “the Big One” is never going to happen in their lifetimes.

Unfortunately, the cold, hard science tells us a much different story. According to the top experts in the field, the San Andreas fault is way overdue for a historic earthquake

Experts have warned that the fault line has been quiet for far too long and is due to erupt at any time.

Thomas Jordan, director of the Southern California Earthquake Centre, told a conference in Long Beach: “The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight. And the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go.”

Seismologists have said that over the past 1,400 to 1,500 monster earthquakes have ruptured at 150-year intervals.

And of course the San Andreas fault is only a small section of a seismic zone known as the Ring of Fire that roughly encircles the entire Pacific Ocean. The U.S. Geological Survey provides tools that show the latest earthquakes in the world, and earlier today I used one of those tools to display all of the earthquakes along the Ring of Fire of magnitude 2.5 or greater that have happened within the last 30 days. The following is a screenshot of what I discovered…

The crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, but meanwhile most people have been lulled into a false sense of security.

At some point a great California earthquake is coming, and when it strikes it is going to change the lives of tens of millions of people in a single moment.

The Biggest Supermoon Since Israel Became A Nation In 1948 Will Happen 6 Days After The Election

By Michael Snyder, on November 3rd, 2016

On November 14th, something extraordinary is going to happen. On that date we will witness the closest full moon that we have seen since 1948. Known as a “supermoon”, this full moon will happen just six days after the U.S. presidential election. If you look up into the night sky on November 14th, you will notice that the moon appears to be much bigger and much brighter than usual. Could it be possible that there is some special meaning to the biggest supermoon in almost 70 years? The last time we witnessed a supermoon of this size Israel become a nation, and as you will see below, many believe that the last couple months of 2016 could have historic significance for the Jewish people as well.

Do you remember ever seeing the moon so big in the sky that you felt that you could almost reach up and grab it? Well, on the 14th you may feel that way again. According to CNN, supermoons typically “appear to be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons”.

And without a doubt, what we are about to witness is an extremely rare event. The last time that a supermoon was this close to our planet was in 1948, and it won’t happen again until 2034

The November full moon is not only the closest full moon of 2016, NASA said, but also the closest full moon since 1948 (which is still the last time the Cleveland Indians won the World Series).

This is one you might want to watch out for: The full moon won’t come this close to Earth again until Nov. 25, 2034, NASA says.

But even though this is a highly unusual event, does that mean that it must have some sort of a special meaning?

Of course not, and the truth is that I don’t know if this giant supermoon holds any special significance.

However, before we dismiss this phenomenon completely, let’s remember what the Bible has to say. In the Scriptures, we are told that God intended the moon to serve as a “sign” from the very beginning. The following is what Genesis 1:14 says in the Modern English Version

And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be signs to indicate seasons, and days, and years.”

And Jesus told us that there would be “signs” in the sun and the moon just prior to His return. The following is what Luke 21:25-26 says in the Modern English Version

25 There will be signs in the sun and the moon and the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men fainting from fear and expectation of what is coming on the inhabited earth. For the powers of heaven will be shaken.

So clearly the Bible tells us that the moon can serve as a sign.

But is that happening in this case?

I don’t know, but just like as in 1948, it appears that something very significant may be about to happen concerning the nation of Israel.

Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “Obama’s Israel Surprise?” which warned that Barack Obama “may try to force a diplomatic resolution for Israel and the Palestinians at the United Nations” before the end of his term.

The options that Obama is reportedly considering include “a resolution formally recognizing a Palestinian state”. The following comes from CNS News

The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that according to administration sources, “the White House has asked the State Department to develop an options menu for the president’s final weeks.”

It said the possibilities could include supporting – or not vetoing – a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements; or a resolution formally recognizing a Palestinian state, or setting “parameters” for a final settlement of the long dispute.

If you follow The Most Important News on a regular basis, then you already know that I have been warning about this over and over and over again in recent months. Barack Obama knows that this is his last chance to “leave a legacy” in the Middle East, and at this point the only chance that he has to get something accomplished is at the United Nations.

Obama’s last day in office is scheduled to be January 20th, and so he is up against a deadline. Prior to the election he was likely extremely hesitant to make a move because he didn’t want to mess up Hillary Clinton’s chances, but after the election there won’t be anything holding him back.

Perhaps that is why the Obama administration recently told the Palestinians to wait until after the election for something to get done at the UN…

On the surface, the latest message to the Palestinian Authority from the Obama administration is no different from the past two decades of American policy: the U.S. will veto any resolution attacking Israel or demanding Palestinian independence without them first making peace with the Jewish state. But, as Haaretz reported, there was one significant caveat to the warning. They were told not to push for any such resolution until after the presidential election next month.

The rest of the UN Security Council has been ready to pass a resolution formally establishing a Palestinian state for a long time. The only thing holding it back has been the U.S. veto power.

So right now the fate of the land of Israel is in Barack Obama’s hands, and he only has until January 20th to make his final decision.

If we do see the land of Israel divided at the United Nations, so many of the things that I talk about in my new book are going to start happening in rapid succession. When we divide their land, our land will be divided as well, and so let us hope that nothing happens at the UN Security Council before the end of Obama’s term.

We truly do live in ominous times, and the events of the next several weeks are going to tell us a lot.

I have a feeling that this election is not going to end well, and we also need to keep a close eye on the UN Security Council.

I have previously described the period of time leading up to January 20th as “the danger zone”, and so much could potentially go wrong during this period of time.

And we certainly won’t have long to wait to get an indication of where things are heading. Next Tuesday the American people will face their “final exam”, and let us hope that they do not pick Hillary Clinton, because such a choice would have disastrous consequences for all of us.
