Anne Graham Lotz: Is God speaking through Irma, Harvey and an earthquake?

By Anne Graham Lotz Published September 12, 2017

Fox News

Within weeks, we have experienced record-breaking fires in the northwest, record-breaking hurricanes in Texas and Florida, and a record-breaking earthquake in Mexico. What is happening? Are these disasters random? Just freaks of nature?  Or is something more significant intended? The answer may be found in an incredible Biblical story.

The Old Testament book of 1 Kings 19 records a dramatic scene when the Lord God passed by as the prophet Elijah stood in the mouth of a cave. The description is eerily similar to ours, because first there was a great and powerful wind, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a still, small voice–the gentle voice of Father God speaking to His frightened, weary child.

God used the earthquake, wind and fire to get Elijah’s attention, because God had something to say.  Our situation is so similar to Elijah’s it begs the question:  Is God using these storms to get our attention because He also has something to say to His us? Yes, He is. What is it? I believe God is saying in essence what He said to Elijah. His message can be broken into four parts:

1) Be comforted. The fact that God spoke to Elijah revealed God’s presence. God is with us.  He has promised, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5) God is right there.  With you.  Now! And He understands what it feels like to be stripped of everything.

2) Be blessed. God told Elijah He would bring help.  And God did. He brought Elisha alongside.  God will bring us help, too:  first responders, FEMA, friends, neighbors, family—even strangers will come alongside to help in the work of rebuilding. They are moved to do so by the Spirit of God, so even in the mess, mold, muck and misery we are aware of Heaven’s blessing.

3) Be encouraged. God told Elijah there were more faithful believers in God than Elijah was aware of, implying Elijah’s life had been more impactful than he knew.  Our lives also have eternal significance. No man is an island. Life is not just about you. Me. These storms have given ample opportunity for us to understand that life is about something bigger than we are. It’s a good time to reorder our priorities and private world.

4) Be ready. God gave Elijah another assignment—a purpose. And I believe God has a purpose for us.  We need to look to Him and be ready for what’s coming next. Because soon after Elijah’s sensational confrontation with God, he was “raptured.” Taken up into Heaven without seeing death. Don’t miss this implied message. In the words of Jesus, “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.  In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:1-3) Heaven is waiting! Jesus is coming!  The signs He gave signal that His coming is imminent. On that day, don’t be left behind. Be ready to meet Him face to face. Turn to Him now. Place your trust in Jesus.

God is speaking through the storms. Are you listening?

WWIII Fears Sparked As North Korea Fires Nuclear-Capable Missile From Pyongyang Into Japanese Air Space

North Korea carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3, worsening already fraught U.S.-North Korea relations. In response, the United Nations Security Council voted to intensify sanctions, including imposing a limit on oil imports, against the hermit state. While the duration and scope of such a conflict would be difficult to measure, North Korea remained an immense risk, Fordham said.

by Geoffrey Grider September 14, 2017

Japan issued a missile alert to mobile phones and on national television, notifying citizens that a missile may have been launched by North Korea, Bloomberg News reports.

EDITOR’S NOTE: With each passing few weeks, North Korea keeps firing missiles, many of them nuclear capable. President Trump has been showing tremendous restraint, choosing for the time being to use sanctions instead of a military option. But as the missiles continue to fly across Japanese airspace, the military option is growing more and more likely. 

The unidentified missile passed over Japan airspace near Hokkaido on Friday at 7.06 am local time. The missile was fired from North Korea in an eastern direction, according to South Korea military.

The outbreak of military conflict on the Korean Peninsula would be destabilizing and could possibly result in a global war, according to Citi’s top global political analyst.

While it was impossible to put a number on the scale of the North Korea risk, war games carried out through history have simulated what could happen as a result, said Tina Fordham, managing director and chief global analyst at Citi.

“A conflict on the Korean Peninsula would not only be very disruptive in the region, but could potentially lead to World War III because of the U.S. security guarantee, so it would be internationalized overnight,” Fordham told CNBC’s “Street Signs” on the sidelines of the Milken Institute Asia Summit in Singapore.

North Korea carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on Sept. 3, worsening already fraught U.S.-North Korea relations. In response, the United Nations Security Council voted to intensify sanctions, including imposing a limit on oil imports, against the hermit state.

While the duration and scope of such a conflict would be difficult to measure, North Korea remained an immense risk, Fordham said.

“It is the single biggest geopolitical threat and one that would also move markets … When we look at political risk, we look at whether it’s likely to cause an oil price shock or a growth shock. And in the North Korea case, if the worst were to happen, it would be both,” she added

Apocalyptic September? Here Is A List Of 27 Major Disasters That Have Already Happened So Far This Month

By Michael Snyder, on September 10th, 2017

Two major hurricanes, unprecedented earthquake swarms and wildfires roaring out of control all over the northwest United States – what else will go wrong next?  When I originally pointed to the month of September as a critical time, I had no idea that we would see so many catastrophic natural disasters during this time frame as well.  Hurricane Harvey just broke the all-time record for rainfall in the continental United States, Hurricane Irma is so immensely powerful that it has been called “a lawnmower from the sky”, vast stretches of our country out west are literally being consumed by fire, and the magnitude-8.2 earthquake that just hit Mexico was completely unexpected.  As I have stated so many times before, our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, but most people simply do not understand what is happening.

My good friend Zach Drew is getting married next month, and I would encourage everyone to go wish him well on Facebook.  On Friday, he posted the best summary of the major disasters that we have been experiencing so far this month that I have seen anywhere…

California is on fire.
Oregon is on fire.
Washington is on fire.
British Columbia is on fire.
Alberta is on fire
Montana is on fire.
Nova Scotia is on fire.
Greece is on fire.
Brazil is on fire.
Portugal is on fire.
Algeria is on fire.
Tunisia is on fire.
Greenland is on fire.
The Sakha Republic of Russia is on fire.
Siberia is on fire.

Texas is under water
India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, experience record monsoons and massive death toll.
Sierra Leone and Niger experience massive floods, mudslides, and deaths in the thousands.

Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia are crushed in the death grip of a triple digit heat wave, dubbed Lucifer.
Southern California continues to swelter under triple digit heat that shows no sign of letting up.
In usually chilly August, the city of San Francisco shatters all-time record at 106 degrees, while it reaches 115 degrees south of the city. Northern California continues to bake in the triple digits.

(()) Yellowstone volcano is hit with earthquake swarm of over 2,300 tremors since June, recording a 4.4 quake on June 15, 20017 and 3.3 shaker on August 21, 2017.
(()) 5.3 earthquake rumbles through Idaho
(()) Japan earthquake 6.1 possible tsunami..
(()) Mexico earthquake 8.2 imminent tsunami. Beach lines are receded atleast 50+ meters

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma (biggest ever recorded), Jose and Katia are barreling around the Atlantic with 8 more potentials forming

And last but not least an X10 C.M.E solar flare two nights ago. The highest recorded solar flare ever!

For much more from Zach, you can follow his work regularly at TruNews.com.

Some are describing what is happening to us as a “perfect storm”, and they are wondering if even more major disasters are coming in the very near future.

Let us hope not, because there is a tremendous amount of concern that we may not be able to pay for the disasters that have happened already.  The following comes from Politico

 

Harvey and Irma could be a breaking point. At $556 billion, the Houston metropolitan area’s economy is bigger than Sweden’s. New Jersey could easily fit inside the region’s sprawling footprint, where Harvey dumped 34 trillion gallons of water, as much as the three costliest floods in Texas history combined. The Harvey response alone eventually could double the $136 billion in government aid spent after Hurricane Katrina flooded New Orleans.

And as of Friday, an estimated $1.73 trillion worth of real estate was in the path of Irma’s hurricane-force winds, according to the University of Wisconsin’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies.

We won’t know the true extent of the damage that has been caused down in Florida for many days, but we do know that much of the state is already without power…

More than 3.3 million homes and businesses and counting have lost power in Florida as Hurricane Irma moves up the peninsula. The widespread outages stretch from the Florida Keys all the way into central Florida. Florida Power & Light, the state’s largest electric utility, said there were nearly 1 million customers without power in Miami-Dade County alone. The power outages are expected to increase as the storm edges further north. There are roughly 7 million residential customers in the state.

In the end, the federal government will likely step in and spend a lot of money that it does not have to rebuild and restore the communities that Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have destroyed.

But we are already 20 trillion dollars in debt, and it is being projected that we will continue to add another trillion dollars to that total every year for the foreseeable future.

At some point all of this debt will simply become completely unsustainable.

Of course the major disasters will just inevitably keep on coming.  As Politico has pointed out, major natural disasters seem to just keep on getting bigger, and they seem to be hitting us more frequently than in the past…

The disasters are arriving with greater frequency. Counting Harvey, the U.S. this year has experienced 10 weather-related events each costing $1 billion or more. The country averaged fewer than six big-dollar storms, flood, fires and freezes a year between 1980 and 2016, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Between 2012 and 2016, however, weather catastrophes occurred almost twice as often.

I know that I have been writing about these hurricanes a lot in recent weeks, and I promise to get back to focusing on the economy in the days to come.

But it is absolutely imperative that we all begin to understand that something has fundamentally changed.  Our world has become much less stable, and “apocalyptic events” are starting to hit us one after another.

So will things start to calm down in the months ahead?

Hurricane Irma: Nearly half of Florida in the dark, Tampa takes pounding

Published September 11, 2017

Fox News

Irma weakened to a Category 1 storm as the massive hurricane zeroed in on the Tampa Bay region early Monday after hammering much of Florida with roof-ripping winds, gushing floodwaters and widespread power outages.

The hurricane’s maximum sustained winds weakened to 85 mph with additional weakening expected. As of 2 a.m. EDT, the storm was centered about 25 miles northeast of Tampa and moving north-northwest near 15 mph.

Irma continues its slog north along Florida’s western coast having blazed a path of unknown destruction. With communication cut to some of the Florida Keys, where Irma made landfall Sunday, and rough conditions persisting across the peninsula, many are holding their breath for what daylight might reveal.

Forecasters say they expert Irma’s center to stay inland over Florida and then move into Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.

They also expect Irma to weaken further into a tropical storm over far northern Florida or southern Georgia on Monday as it speeds up its forward motion. The hurricane center says the storm is still life-threatening with dangerous storm surge, wind and heavy rains.

More than 3.3 million homes and businesses — and counting — have lost power in Florida as Hurricane Irma moves up the peninsula.

The widespread outages stretch from the Florida Keys all the way into central Florida.

Florida Power & Light, the state’s largest electric utility, said there were nearly 1 million customers without power in Miami-Dade County alone.

The power outages are expected to increase as the storm edges further north.

There are roughly 7 million residential customers in the state.

The county administrator in the Florida Keys says crews will begin house to house searches Monday morning, looking for people who need help and assessing damage from Hurricane Irma.

Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi says relief will arrive on a C-130 military plane Monday morning at the Key West International Airport.

Once it’s light out, they’ll check on survivors. They suspect they may find fatalities.

Gastesi says they are “prepared for the worst.”

Hurricane Irma made landfall Sunday morning in Cudjoe Key.

But The Associated Press has been texting with John Huston, who has been riding out the storm in his house on Key Largo, on the Atlantic side of the island, just south of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.

Every few minutes during the height of the storm, he sent another dispatch.

He described whiteout conditions, with howling winds that sucked dry the gulf side of the narrow island, where the tide is usually 8 feet deep. He kept his humor though, texting to “send cold beer” at one point. Now he sees furniture floating down the street with small boats.

He says the storm surge was at least 6 feet deep on his island, 76 miles from Irma’s eye. He can see now that structures survived, but the storm left a big mess at ground level.

Irma set all sorts of records for brute strength before crashing into Florida, flattening islands in the Caribbean and swamping the Florida Keys.

It finally hit the mainland as a big wide beast, but not quite as monstrous as once feared. The once-Category 5 storm lost some of its power on the northern Cuba coast.

Hurricane Irma takes direct aim at Florida

Published September 08, 2017

Fox News

Floridians clogged highways in a desperate scramble to get out of Hurricane Irma’s crosshairs, as the deadly Category 4 storm took direct aim at the southern United States, shifting westward Friday as the worst case scenario became the most-likely situation.

Irma, downgraded from Category 5, was still regarded as the most powerful in the Atlantic in recorded history, bringing sustained winds of 150 mph – not as strong as the 185 mph of previous days, but forceful enough to cause severe damage to homes and other structures.

“This is a storm of absolutely historic destructive potential,” President Trump said in a videotaped statement.

He urged all those in the storm’s path to “heed all recommendations” from officials.

“Hurricane Irma continues to be a threat that is going to devastate the United States in either Florida or some of the southeastern states,” FEMA Administrator Brock Long said at a news briefing on Friday. He warned that parts of Florida would be out of electricity for days if not longer and that more than 100,000 people may need shelter.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said during a Friday news conference the Florida Keys would begin to feel Irma’s effects by Saturday morning. He said Irma, on its current path, was more deadly than Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 storm that killed 65 in August 1992.

“All Floridians should be prepared to evacuate,” Scott said, though he acknowledged the evacuations were causing a logjam on the state’s roads. Scott said as of 6 p.m. Thursday 8.4 million gallons of fuel had been shipped into Port Everglades and more than five million gallons of fuel was shipped into Port Tampa Bay.

But Scott emphasized the seriousness of getting to a safe location.

at 11 a.m. Friday from the National Hurricane Center showed Irma with wind gusts of 150 mph. The storm was moving about 14 mph, the hurricane center said

The hurricane center said its storm surge warning covers Sebastian Inlet southward around the Florida peninsula to Venice and the Florida Keys.

Its hurricane warning covers Jupiter Inlet southward around the Florida peninsula to Bonita Beach, as well as the Florida Keys, Lake Okeechobee, and Florida Bay.

In addition, a storm surge watch has been issued for North of Sebastian Inlet to Ponce Inlet.

A hurricane watch has been issued for the east coast of Florida
north of Jupiter Inlet to the Flagler/Volusia County line and for the west coast of Florida north of Bonita Beach to Anclote River.

Key West tweeted to residents that it’s “not safe to stay” and Jacksonville Florida wrote on Twitter that residents need to “hunker down” in a secure place by 8 p.m. on Saturday night.

In the U.S. Virgin Islands, hurricane victims received assistance from three U.S. Navy vessels deployed to the U.S. territory: the USS Wasp, USS Kearsarge and USS Oak Hill.

The Navy crews aboard the ships were able to offer medical support, security, heavy lift capabilities and other assistance, a U.S. Navy release said.

Gov. Scott said he’s activated 4,000 members of the National Guard in Florida, and all 7,000 will be deployed on Friday.

Shifting forecasts have also raised the threat to the Southeast from Irma, prompting emergency declarations in the Carolinas and coastal Georgia, including areas that haven’t suffered a direct hit from a major hurricane in more than a century.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal ordered a mandatory evacuation starting on Saturday from the state’s Atlantic coast ahead of Hurricane Irma, including the city of Savannah. Nearly 540,000 residents on the coast were ordered to evacuate inland.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster also declared a state of emergency. A major strike there would be the first in nearly 28 years.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

America Burns And Floods As ‘Signs Are In The Heavens’ – ‘Unbelievable Times, Unprecedented Events And A Final Scenario’

With large parts of California now being reduced to ashes, the world’s largest firefighting aircraft has been grounded by the US Forest Service in California. In the SQnote he left while linking to that story, Steve Quayle says “Outrageous! It’s almost as if someone wants Montana wilderness burned up? Wait of course they do” while urging his readers to call Montana senators and congressman and protest vigorously.

While some might say that ‘various people within govt WANTING destruction’ for America might seem like ‘fake news’, a quick visit to Deagel’s 2025 forecast for America still sees a nation in tatters in less than 8 years. A forecast population of 54 million (down 270 million from the 324 million living here in 2016) with the purchasing power of the American people down to #78 in the world (from #15 now) with our gdp per capita expected to fall to a level that puts us closer to Venezuela than most advanced countries in the world.

Might some really want the end of America? We also see the utmost bizarre behavior in anti-Trump resistance groups such as Refuse Fascism beginning to spread North Korean propaganda, almost as if they endorse Kim’s brutal regime and want the end of America. “Wait, of course they do!” The sound of anti-America slogans rings out loud and clear on the left with even former President candidate Hillary Clinton speaking of a borderless world before she was thankfully defeated.

And as we see in this story, in more ways than one, it was Bill Clinton’s administration who helped set up the ball rolling towards the coming financial calamity, towards our nation’s loss of sovereignty, towards our destruction. As we read in this new story over at the Daily Mail, intentionally leaked files containing details of many US intelligence operatives has further put America in danger with one victim claiming he was charged with the transportation of nuclear activation codes and weapons components. With Barack Obama now threatening to come out of his bunker to further take on Trump’s agenda, we’re warned that this extremely damaging information was intentionally leaked to take away from President Trump’s ability to launch a first strike or defend against one. Much more on these leaked files in the 3rd video below.

“With all of the highest level intel agents being against Trump, Obama’s crew has ensured our destruction”.

And as we see in this story, from floods to fire to signs in the Heavens, prophecy may be playing out before our eyes.

In this new story over at Strange Sounds that Steve Quayle linked to on his website Monday morning we see some amazing photographs of what is now being called the biggest wildfire in Los Angeles history. Fueled by hot conditions and shifting winds, millions of acres of land have been consumed in California and as the Strange Sounds story reports, the apocalyptic fires as seen in the photo above looked almost like a gigantic volcanic ash cloud as huge sections of the West coast burned.

While it appears for now that firefighters had gained the upper hand upon at least the Verdugo Mountains fire as of Sunday with all evacuation orders lifted in that region according to this LA Times story, as we hear in the 1st video below, the historic west coast fires are simply one of several ‘crisis scenarios’ now happening in ‘Apocalyptic America’.

“Unbelievable times, unprecedented events” our videographer tells us.

With the US Virgin Islands and the East Coast of the US now preparing for the arrival of hurricane Irma soon after Harvey delivered massive destruction and historical flooding, it has not been lost upon ANP readers that what we’re now witnessing is ‘Biblical’ destruction and as we see outlined in this story, between ‘wars and rumors of wars’ and ‘signs in the Heavens’, we may be rapidly ticking our way towards a ‘final scenario’.

As we reported on ANP back on August 19th, prior to the so-called ‘Great American Eclipse’, an extremely unusual convergence of events would be occuring between then and the 30th of September, events outlined by Michael Snyder in this story over at Charisma News, events that some believe could signify God’s Judgement coming upon America.

As we asked in that August 19th story, “Is The Great American Eclipse ‘God’s Final Warning To Babylon’ Before Disaster And Destruction?”  We find it interesting that since the ‘Great American Eclipse’, what some were calling a ‘prophetic moment of truth’ for America, large parts of America have been consumed by floods and fire with more destruction apparently on the way while wars and rumors of wars are also raging at a fever pitch.

As ANP reader ‘Grind Junkie’ commented on this hurricane Irma weather modification story on Sunday, “Fire on the WEST, Hurricane Harvey flood victims SOUTH, Irma coming up on the EAST. I would say BOXED IN. Now let’s do a nuke right in the middle or have the grid go down.” Such a ‘final scenario’ would complete America’s destruction and as even the msm is now finally reporting, send us quite literally back to the ‘dark ages’.

With North Korea now playing the necessary role of the ‘evil villian’ following yet another nuclear test and threats coming straight from his own closest advisors of using a hydrogen bomb upon America that shuts down our electrical grid, we see ‘wars and rumors of wars’ happening now before our eyes. And with a now-nuclear armed North Korea continuing to threaten the West and becoming more and more dangerous each day with their weapons capability easily surpassing what experts had believed they would be capable of so soon, we may be running out of time to prevent a catastrophe.

Will President Trump simply follow the paths of Clinton, Bush and Obama before him and allow the North Korean nuclear threat to continue to grow to a point where there will be no way to stop them short of ‘MAD’, mutually assured destruction? As we learn from this November 1st of 1997 post at the American Arms Control website, we may have been set up for destruction many years ago:

The Clinton administration quietly made a significant change in U.S. strategic nuclear doctrine in November by formally abandoning guidelines issued by the Reagan administration in 1981 that the United States must be prepared to fight and win a protracted nuclear war. The new presidential decision directive (PDD), details of which were first reported in The Washington Post on December 7, operates from the premise that the primary role of nuclear weapons in the post-Cold War era is deterrence. 

As we read in this story from Daily Mail, it’s become increasingly clear that talks won’t work with North Korea and we are rapidly running out of time to deal with the ‘North Korea threat’ and we may soon arrive at a point in time where there are no other options except for military options. And should we arrive at that point in time, we must remember that North Korea is well prepared to strike back at America, with terror cells long here as detailed below, and war could be used by the globalists as a ‘pawn’ in their long-running ‘game’ to take down America.

As we reported on ANP back on April 28th of 2017, we have 100% proof via now-declassified documents that back in the 1990’s, North Korea had at least 5 ‘commando units’ in the US, ready to attack US nuclear plants and US cities should war have broken out then between the US and NKorea. With the completely open borders of the US over 8 years of the Obama administration, how many more such ‘sleeper terror cells’ have gotten in? From the Daily Mail source story.:

North Korea sent special forces teams to the US in the 1990s to target nuclear power stations and conduct terror attacks on major cities in the event of war, a declassified intelligence report has revealed.

The rogue state successfully infiltrated five units of highly-trained commandos onto U.S. soil ready to strike at key installations, according to a Defense Intelligence Agency report dated September 13, 2004.

The report states that the North Korean Ministry of People’s Armed Forces ‘established five liaison offices in the early 1990s, to train and infiltrate operatives into the United States to attack nuclear power plants and major cities in case of hostilities.

‘They ‘had agents in place to attack American nuclear power plants’, it continues, ‘in the event of hostilities between the United States and DPRK’.

North Korea has one of the largest number of Special Forces in the world with more than 60,000 commandos under control of the shadowy Reconnaissance Bureau, part of the country’s Armed Forces.

The Bureau is known to have been behind a string of terror attacks over the years including airline bombing, kidnaps and assassinations.

It has also been reported that NKorea has one of the most deadly biological weapons programs in the world and as Michael Snyder reported back on April 13th, “Where Will You Go When North Korean Agents Release Biological Weapons In Major U.S. Cities?” While the US might quickly and totally annihilate North Korea via many options according to US DOD Head James ‘Maddog’ Mattis, the damage to the US or our allies that North Korea could deliver in return clearly aren’t limited to hydrogen bomb loaded ICBM’s or an EMP attack that takes down our electrical grid.

We’ve also reported that the North Korean cyber warfare program is one of the best in the world and some feel that it may have been responsible for electrical grid failures in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco on the same day.

As even ‘Maddog’ himself has warned, it’s clear that there are no easy answers to North Korea and any war between the US and our allies and North Korea would be one of the most brutal, bloody wars anyone has ever seen. More on the North Korea threat from Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer with Fox News in the final video below.

With most of the latest tracks of hurricane Irma still showing an East coast strike though the exact track is still unknown, tens of millions of Americans could soon be in the path of what appears to be another ‘weaponized’ beast. Much more on Irma, now a Category 5 storm, in the 2nd video below.

As this new story from Accuweather reports, if Irma makes landfall as a Category 4 or 5 storm somewhere in America, it would be in historic. “The U.S. has not sustained a direct hit from two Category 4 or above hurricanes in more than 100 years” according to Evan Myers, expert senior meteorologist and chief operating officer at Accuweather.

While we went more than 14 years without a ‘major hurricane landfall’ prior to Harvey, two major hurricane strikes within weeks may be much more than just a ‘coincidence’ with the globalist upset President Trump has seen through their ‘global warming scam’.

The Accuweather story quite noticeably stresses preparation for anybody who might be in the path of Irma, warning that FEMA is now stretched to the limits by the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and what is now happening on the West coast.

With Irma now bearing down upon America, California up in flames and the people of Houston still recovering from Harvey, we pray for the people of Texas, California, Florida and anybody else now in Irma’s path.

BOOM! North Korea Successfully Tests Nuclear Bomb As Showdown With Rogue State Draws Ever Closer

In a televised statement, North Korea described the underground explosion, which triggered a large earthquake, as a “perfect success in the test of a hydrogen bomb for an ICBM.” Pyongyang said “the creditability of the operation of the nuclear warhead is fully guaranteed.” The explosion at the nuclear test site at Punggye-ri in North Korea’s mountainous northeast triggered an initial magnitude-6.3 earthquake, followed by a magnitude-4.1 temblor that was possibly caused by a structural collapse, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

by Geoffrey Grider September 3, 2017

North Korea said it conducted a sixth and significantly larger nuclear test Sunday, stepping up pressure on President Donald Trump in what is shaping up to be his biggest foreign policy crisis.

EDITOR’S NOTE: North Korea is a nuclear power today because the capabilities for those weapons of global destruction were given to him by former Democrat President Bill Clinton. Today’s detonation of a massive hydrogen nuclear bomb by North Korea makes it clear that the only thing that will stop them is military force. Sanctions accomplish nothing. President Trump, at some point, must call for military action to curb Kim Jong-Un’s appetite for destruction. 

In a televised statement, North Korea described the underground explosion, which triggered a large earthquake, as a “perfect success in the test of a hydrogen bomb for an ICBM.” Pyongyang said “the creditability of the operation of the nuclear warhead is fully guaranteed.”

The test came just hours after leader Kim Jong Un showed off what he described as a hydrogen bomb capable of being mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The explosion at the nuclear test site at Punggye-ri in North Korea’s mountainous northeast triggered an initial magnitude-6.3 earthquake, followed by a magnitude-4.1 temblor that was possibly caused by a structural collapse, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

While it was unclear what set off the second quake, satellite imagery has captured evidence of tunneling activity at the nuclear test site in recent months. Any structural collapse might have been related to that.

According to the logarithmic scale used to measure earthquakes, the initial magnitude-6.3 tremor was 10 times bigger than the one triggered by the North’s previous nuclear test in September 2016, which the USGS said had a magnitude of 5.3.

The Korea Meteorological Administration in Seoul put the magnitude of Sunday’s initial earthquake at 5.7

The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization said seismic signals were picked up by 35 monitoring stations, suggesting that the size of the explosion was much larger than last time, when signals were picked up by 26 stations.

The latest nuclear test was estimated to have a yield of as high as 100 kilotons—about 10 times the power of the North’s previous test and roughly five times that of the atomic bomb that the U.S. dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945, according to Kim Young-woo, a South Korean lawmaker who is chairman of the legislature’s defense committee and received a briefing from military authorities.

A spokesman for the defense ministry declined to comment.

South Korea’s national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, said after a 90-minute emergency meeting of the National Security Council that Seoul would consider the possible deployment of what he described as the “most powerful strategic assets that the U.S. possesses,” without elaborating, according to a statement from the presidential Blue House.

The phrase “strategic assets” typically refers to stealth bombers, aircraft carriers or possibly nuclear weapons. The U.S. withdrew the last of its nuclear weapons from South Korea in 1991.

Mr. Chung, who also spoke by phone with Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, his counterpart at the White House, said that Moon Jae-in, the South Korean president, had called for the “strongest punitive measures” against Pyongyang. That includes diplomatic measures and a new United Nations Security Council resolution to “completely isolate North Korea.”

In Sunday morning tweets, Mr. Trump said North Korea’s “words and actions continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States.” He added: “North Korea is a rogue nation which has become a great threat and embarrassment to China, which is trying to help but with little success.” He also added: “South Korea is finding, as I have told them, that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work, they only understand one thing!”

While North Korea has made steady advances in both its nuclear and missile programs over the course of decades, Mr. Kim has greatly accelerated the pace of testing as the isolated country nears the ability to deliver a nuclear-tipped missile to the continental U.S.

Just this year, it has conducted a string of successful missile tests that have extended the proven range of its arsenal and introduced new capabilities that allow Pyongyang to fire missiles more quickly and with less warning. In July, it test-fired two ICBMs that experts say they believe are capable of reaching many parts of the U.S. mainland.

Trump Officials, Netanyahu Renew Talks on Moving US Embassy to Jerusalem

By Abra Forman August 28, 2017 , 11:30 am

“Thus said Hashem: I have returned to Tzion, and I will dwell in Yerushalayim. Yerushalayim will be called the City of Faithfulness, and the mount of God of Hosts the Holy Mount.” Zechariah 8:3 (The Israel Bible™)

President Donald Trump’s Middle East envoys and Israeli officials renewed discussion of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in high-level meetings last week, the Times of Israel reported Sunday.

In the region for another push to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, peace envoy Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday. Among the topics discussed, said a US source, was the highly-anticipated embassy move.

Relocating the American embassy in Israel from its current location in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the country’s capital, was one of Trump’s major campaign platforms. However, the promise was not fulfilled after Trump took office, and when a waiver delaying the embassy move for another six months came due in June, Trump signed it, to the disappointment of many.

But the Trump administration has repeatedly assured its supporters that the president fully intends to move the embassy during his time in office.

In the latest round of talks, the move “was brought up by both sides as part of a productive broad conversation about a number of issues,” the Times of Israel quoted a source familiar with the discussions as saying.

The Prime Minister’s Office confirmed after the meeting that the topic had been discussed, but did not comment on details.

Relocating the embassy, which would mean recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – something the US has yet to officially do – is seen as a highly controversial move which could jeopardize the resumption of peace talks. Trump was dissuaded from making the move after discussions with his security team convinced him to hold off in hopes of achieving a larger peace agreement.

Trump officials say that it’s just a matter of time. In July, Vice President Mike Pence, speaking to a gathering of 4,000 pro-Israel evangelical Christians in Washington, declared, “I promise you that the day will come when President Donald Trump moves the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It is not a question of if, it is only when.”

Will NASA’s Risky Plan to Drill Into Yellowstone Set Off Seismic End-of-Days Catastrophe?

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz August 22, 2017 , 12:30 pm

“Therefore shall heaven be shaken, And earth leap out of its place, At the fury of God of Hosts On the day of His burning wrath.” Isaiah 13:13 (The Israel Bible™)

In the wake of ongoing seismic disturbances at Yellowstone, NASA scientists have suggested a drastic solution that they admit may actually set off the globally threatening catastrophe they are trying to prevent. One rabbi, steeped in knowledge of the Bible, suggested the scientists take a good look at their methods and try a more spiritual approach.

As tens of thousands of people gathered in Yellowstone National Park Monday morning to witness the once-in-a-century solar eclipse, the area was hit by a 3.2 magnitude earthquake. This recent tremor, though not large, is part of an ongoing series of quakes that began June 12. Experts believed the unusually large swarm of earthquakes would gradually die down but by the beginning of August, over 1,400 minor tremors had been recorded at the site.

Jamie Farrell at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City told New Scientist, “This is a large swarm but it is not the largest swarm we’ve recorded in Yellowstone. Earthquake swarms are fairly common in Yellowstone.”

However, Monday’s tremor, following a 2.5 magnitude quake at 7:23 PM Sunday night, indicates that the earthshaking problem is unlikely to simply go away. Should the supervolcano erupt, the threat to the Earth, said NASA scientist Brian Wilcox, “is substantially greater than the asteroid or comet threat.”

As a result, scientists are investigating how to cool off the seismic hotspot in order to prevent a catastrophic super-eruption.

NASA announced this week that it is working on plans to drill six miles down into the volcanically active region and pump water into the magma at high pressures. The water would return to the surface at 662 degrees Fahrenheit, bringing some of the volcano’s heat with it. The project is massive, estimated to cost $3.46 billion, and admittedly risky.

“The most important thing with this is to do no harm,” Wilcox, a researcher NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, told the BBC. “If you drill into the top of the magma chamber and try and cool it from there, this would be very risky. This could make the cap over the magma chamber more brittle and prone to fracture. And you might trigger the release of harmful volatile gases in the magma at the top of the chamber which would otherwise not be released.”

But the NASA scientists working on the project are convinced that Yellowstone poses enough of a threat that they are willing to risk setting off an eruption.

While the scientists tinker with the supervolcano, Rabbi Rami Levy, a well-known kabbalist from Jerusalem, was skeptical of their plan to save the world.

“Science is wonderful, but it is wrong to think it does not have limits,” Rabbi Levy told Breaking Israel News. “So many times, scientists have said one thing and then the year after told us something that totally contradicts that.”

The rabbi explained that earthquakes are an inevitable and unavoidable part of the End of Days, quoting the prophet Jeremiah.

I looked at the earth, and it was formless and empty; and at the heavens, and their light was gone. I looked at the mountains, and they were quaking; all the hills were swaying. I looked, and there were no people; every bird in the sky had flown away… Jeremiah 4:23-28

Rabbi Levy stated that in many cases, science has portrayed itself as the savior while attempting to solve problems it had actually created. In the case of Yellowstone, the rabbi advised the scientists to delve into the prophetic writings of the Bible.

“This earthquake and volcanic eruption were explicitly described in the Bible,” Rabbi Levy said. “Now that scientists are finally realizing that it will happen, wouldn’t it be wise to look into the Bible for the solution?”

The answer, he said, is simple but unscientific: “Tshuva (repentance). According to Jewish tradition, it was created before the world so it can supercede nature.”

The Yellowstone caldera is only one of approximately 20 known supervolcanoes that threaten the Earth. The dangers from a large eruption are far greater than those posed to the immediate vicinity by magma and ash. An eruption at Yellowstone would spew abrasive ash into the atmosphere, covering fifteen states and preventing airplanes from flying over the central United States for several months.

The greatest threat from an eruption in the agricultural heartland of America would be from starvation. Prolonged volcanic winter could potentially prohibit the US and other countries from having enough food for the current population.

Some scientists insist the chances of a catastrophic eruption at the Yellowstone caldera is extremely unlikely, one in 730,000, but the NASA scientists disagree.

“Yellowstone explodes roughly every 600,000 years, and it is about 600,000 years since it last exploded, which should cause us to sit up and take notice,” Wilcox said

War: Antifa Plans Nationwide Terror Attacks For November 4, 2017 – Time To ‘Lock And Load’

By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine

It is not often a terror organization publicly plans their attacks and announces the exact date they plan to attack, yet Antifa groups have been doing so on social media, “Revolution” websites, Communist and socialist websites, with increasing frequency, and in each case, there has been violence associated with the events they attend.

All one has to do is a search for videos, articles, images, or even just read their own words as they organize these events, with groups stating outright that violence against people with a different ideology is just fine and is “not a crime.

Each and every time Antifa groups organize, whether it is to protest the presidential election and President Trump’s inauguration, or a free speech event they claim is “racist,” or claims of “fascist cops,” or a conservative lecture at a college, whatever the event they “oppose” is, they organize, they bus people to the event, they attack as you see in the video above, they perpetrate violence, they destroy property, then they leave the town to pick up the pieces so they can plan their next “counter-protest,” where the same pattern plays out.

NATIONWIDE ANTIFA TERROR ATTACK PLANNED FOR NOVEMBER 4, 2017

Multiple Antifa groups are now planning not just one event, but according to their announcement, it will be a nationwide terror attack on Americans, scheduled for November 4, 2017, and already being organized, with fliers, being announced on their websites and social media accounts, telling their followers to “take to the streets and public squares in cities and towns across the country continuing day after day and night after night—not stopping—until our DEMAND is met.”

What is their demand? “The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!”

On August 19, 2017, they held “regional conferences” in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Austin, to plan the nationwide terror attacks, with the conferences being hosted by Refuse Fascism Org.

In their own words:

We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power.

The Revolutionary communist Party is also  organizing their members ot participate, as are dozens of Antifa-like groups.

This is not about Confederate monuments, not about Antifa being “offended” at free speech, or imagery they don’t like….make no mistake, they are saying straight up their goal is to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States,  their methods include attacking police, attacking any Trump supporters, any free speech activists, and as seen below, they will attack anyone holding an American flag. In other words, if they show up in your town, expect violence.

Period.

BOTTOM LINE – TIME TO LOCK AND LOAD

Watch the video above, that woman that was dragged and knocked to the ground for doing nothing more than holding an American flag, could be your daughter, your mother, your sister, any female member of your family or a friend…. this is what Antifa is bringing to your state, perhaps your city and town on November 4, 2017.

Every person that disagrees with them, their methods and their goal of overthrowing the government, is their enemy and they will attack you. The time to prepare to defend yourself, your neighbors, your family and your town is now.

They are not planning events to be held in specific towns, they are calling anyone that agrees with their ideology to take the streets, it could be your neighbor, your family members, anybody in your city or town that agrees with their ideology…… they have already started a civil war in this country, now they want to bring it to your home town.

Via Investment Watch Blog:

Don’t be caught flatfooted. These vermin are telling you what they are going to do so don’t be shocked and surprised when they do it. The time for counter-strategy is NOW, not 3 days after the riots begin. Newsflash: These people aren’t playing games! Call your congressman, call your senator, call your sheriff, call your mayor’s office and ask them, “what will be your response to this?”. Make sure they know that you know its coming.

This is war, prepare accordingly.
