Volcanic Eruption Imminent in Bali as Mt. Agung Belches Fire and Smoke

By Abra Forman November 27, 2017 , 1:30 pm

“Now Har Sinai was all in smoke, for Hashem had come down upon it in fire; the smoke rose like the smoke of a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled violently.” Exodus 18:19 (The Israel Bible™)

Thousands of residents of Bali have been ordered to evacuate and the local airport has been shut down as Mount Agung, a massive active volcano, threatens to explode on the Indonesian resort island, bringing a possible national disaster and hundreds or thousands of casualties.

The first signs of the volcano’s imminent eruption appeared last Tuesday when it began spewing volcanic ash. On Saturday, thick clouds of ash began shooting nearly 10,000 feet into the air above the mouth of the volcano in three smaller eruptions. Liquid lava has begun welling up in the volcano’s crater, and explosions from the smoking giant can be heard from over seven miles away.

Experts have confirmed that Mount Agung is shifting into the “magmatic” phase in which danger of eruption is heightened.

Lahars, potentially deadly mudflows of volcanic debris and water, have begun flowing down the volcano’s slopes, adding yet another element of danger as authorities warn they could cause flooding in local rivers.

On Monday, the National Disaster Mitigation Agency raised Mount Agung’s alert to its highest level and expanded the “danger zone” around the roiling peak to six miles. The danger zone now encompasses some 22 villages and about 100,000 people.

So far, about 40,000 people have evacuated, and authorities plan to search the area for holdouts who don’t want to abandon their property or livestock.

“We ask people in the danger zone to evacuate immediately because there’s a potential for a bigger eruption,” Agency Spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho told media in Jakarta. He said that the growing pool of lava in the crater “will certainly spill over to the slopes”, endangering anyone nearby.

In the Bible, volcanoes and seismic activity are connected with God’s anger, especially in the context of the End of Days.

Therefore I will make the heavens to tremble, and the earth shall be shaken out of her place, for the wrath of Hashem of hosts, and for the day of His fierce anger. Isaiah 13:13

Mount Agung last erupted over half a century ago in 1963, killing over 1,700 people. After over 50 years of quiet, the volcano awakened in September, rumbling back to life and causing a major panic on the island as the alert was raised to its highest level. Authorities evacuated about 140,000 people from the exclusion zone, extended to 12 miles.

In October, the volcano’s activity reduced and many people returned to their homes as the alert was lowered – only to be raised again a month later.

Bali’s main airport was closed on Monday, stranding about 59,000 passengers on the island as flights were suspended due to the volcanic ash in the air.

Indonesia sits on the Pacific “Ring of Fire” basin, which boasts 452 volcanoes and is the most seismically active region in the world. About 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire. Indonesia itself is home to over 120 active volcanoes.

Upsurge in big earthquakes predicted for 2018 as Earth rotation slows

Scientists say number of severe quakes is likely to rise strongly next year because of a periodic slowing of the Earth’s rotation

Robin McKie

Saturday 18 November 2017 17.00 EST Last modified on Saturday 18 November 2017 17.25 EST

Scientists have warned there could be a big increase in numbers of devastating earthquakes around the world next year. They believe variations in the speed of Earth’s rotation could trigger intense seismic activity, particularly in heavily populated tropical regions.

Although such fluctuations in rotation are small – changing the length of the day by a millisecond – they could still be implicated in the release of vast amounts of underground energy, it is argued.

The link between Earth’s rotation and seismic activity was highlighted last month in a paper by Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado in Boulder and Rebecca Bendick of the University of Montana in Missoula presented at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America.

“The correlation between Earth’s rotation and earthquake activity is strong and suggests there is going to be an increase in numbers of intense earthquakes next year,” Bilham told the Observer last week.

In their study, Bilham and Bendick looked at earthquakes of magnitude 7 and greater that had occurred since 1900. “Major earthquakes have been well recorded for more than a century and that gives us a good record to study,” said Bilham.

They found five periods when there had been significantly higher numbers of large earthquakes compared with other times. “In these periods, there were between 25 to 30 intense earthquakes a year,” said Bilham. “The rest of the time the average figure was around 15 major earthquakes a year.”

The researchers searched to find correlations between these periods of intense seismic activity and other factors and discovered that when Earth’s rotation decreased slightly it was followed by periods of increased numbers of intense earthquakes. “The rotation of the Earth does change slightly – by a millisecond a day sometimes – and that can be measured very accurately by atomic clocks,” said Bilham.

It is straightforward. The Earth is offering us a five-year heads-up on future earthquakes

Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado in Boulder

Bilham and Bendick found that there had been periods of around five years when Earth’s rotation slowed by such an amount several times over the past century and a half. Crucially, these periods were followed by periods when the numbers of intense earthquakes increased.

“It is straightforward,” said Bilham. “The Earth is offering us a five-year heads-up on future earthquakes.”

This link is particularly important because Earth’s rotation began one of its periodic slowdowns more than four years ago. “The inference is clear,” said Bilham. “Next year we should see a significant increase in numbers of severe earthquakes. We have had it easy this year. So far we have only had about six severe earthquakes. We could easily have 20 a year starting in 2018.”

Exactly why decreases in day length should be linked to earthquakes is unclear although scientists suspect that slight changes in the behaviour of Earth’s core could be causing both effects.

In addition, it is difficult to predict where these extra earthquakes will occur – although Bilham said they found that most of the intense earthquakes that responded to changes in day length seemed to occur near the equator. About one billion people live in the Earth’s tropical regions.

Is Global Rash of Mysterious Booms and Fireballs End-of-Days Announcement?

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz November 20, 2017 , 11:30 am

“Then a spirit carried me away, and behind me I heard a great roaring sound: ‘Blessed is the Presence of Hashem, in His place.’” Ezekiel 3:12 (The Israel Bible™)

A wave of loud and inexplicable booms thundering in the skies over America and abroad coinciding with dramatic sightings of fireballs has NASA scientists scratching their heads, but Bible-based experts note that these events are explicitly described as preceding the Messiah and End-of-Days.

Last Tuesday, an unmistakeable thundering ‘boom’ shook a wide swathe of northern Alabama at around 1:45 PM local time.

Though the boom was large enough to register on seismographs, geologists ruled out the possibility of a localized tremor. This left scientists to ponder two possibilities: either the Bama Boom, as it was dubbed, was an enormous sonic boom or it was the result of a meteor entering the atmosphere.

Inquiries with aviation authorities, civil and military, were fruitless, leading to the conclusion that the loud sound heard across seven counties was astronomically sourced.

NASA was clearly stymied, confirming the sonic disturbance but unable to offer an explanation for the phenomenon It speculated that the boom “could have been generated by a bolide, larger supersonic aircraft or a ground explosion.” A bolide is a large meteor that explodes in the atmosphere. Eyewitnesses reported a vapor trail, and NASA said that points to a meteor or aircraft, though none was reported to be in the area or detected at the time.

The Bama Boom wasn’t an isolated incident. One day later, residents in Idaho were shaken by a similar boom, and on Saturday, a boom was reported in Michigan. In fact, throughout the week there were reports of loud unexplained booms in Louisiana, Florida, and Texas. At the same time, booms were reported in other countries, including Russia and Denmark.

Loud and disturbing sounds are described in Jewish sources as being associated with the Messiah. Rabbi Yisroel ben Eliezer, often called the Baal Shem Tov, was an 18th century Jewish mystical rabbi who founded the Hasidic sect. Stories of him describe an incident on Yom Kippur in which his spirit went up to heaven and saw the Messiah “surrounded by a loud noise”.

This was later explained by his great-grandson, Rabbi Nachman, who wrote that the unprecedented noise accompanying the arrival of the Messiah served a practical purpose. Rebbe Nachman noted that in the Talmud (oral law) it is stated that the Messiah will come by way of ‘distraction’.

“The arrival of the Messiah will be sudden and surprising, accompanied by a loud noise that will cause everyone to stop what they are doing…so they may run to greet Him,” explained Rabbi Nachman.

This recent spate of aural phenomena coincides with a wave of fireball sightings, two of which were filmed over Phoenix last Tuesday night, just a few hours after the disturbing sound in Alabama.

NASA was a witness to these celestial events. Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli, who is currently on board the International Space Station, filmed a fireball that flew over South Africa two weeks ago.

One fireball spotted over Finland last Thursday dramatically lit up the nighttime sky in what scientists described as “the glow of 100 moons”, which was accompanied by a substantial shock wave.

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, pointed out that the scientists’ description of the fireball event conformed to the end-of-days prophecy in Zechariah.

But there shall be a continuous day—only Hashem knows when—of neither day nor night, and there shall be light at eventide. Zechariah 14:7

“The Zohar (the basis of Jewish esoteric learning) describes warring stars as accompanying the Messiah,” Rabbi Berger explained. “A large pillar of flame will also appear, as was seen by the Children of Israel in the desert.”

Rabbi Berger also pointed out that the prophet Joel prophesied astronomical phenomena as signalling the imminent arrival of the Messiah.

Before the great and terrible day of Hashem comes, I will set portents in the sky and on earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. Joel 3:3

Despite the loud sounds and explosive fireballs, Rabbi Berger explained that like Elijah’s epiphany, this process will culminate quietly.

After the earthquake—fire; but Hashem was not in the fire. And after the fire—a soft murmuring sound. I Kings 19:12

“This can be expected before Moshiach (Messiah),” Rabbi Berger said. “But in the end, the true meeting is not like that. It won’t be loud and flashy, but because of that, it will be much more powerful.

La Palma volcano panic: Volcanologists monitor subterranean waters as ERUPTION fears grow

VOLCANO experts have begun to monitor the subterranean waters in La Palma over fears the deadly Cumbre Vieja could erupt.

By Rebecca Perring

PUBLISHED: 12:17, Tue, Oct 24, 2017 | UPDATED: 14:48, Tue, Oct 24, 2017 Britain faces mega tsunami threat from La Palma volcano

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

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

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

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

LA PALMA VOLCANO: WILL IT ERUPT?

IGN

Volcano experts will examine the subterranean waters

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

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

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

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

The Canary Islands has been struck by 100s of earthquakes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The reason behind this alleged deception is clear to Ovadia.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Laurence Dollimore (News Editor) – PUBLISHED –

11 Oct, 2017 @ 11:55

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

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

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

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

READY TO BLOW?: Cumbre Vieja

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Michael Snyder, on October 9th, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

By Anne Graham Lotz Published September 12, 2017

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?

9/23/17: More ominous, ‘biblical’ signs in the sky

Mark Biltz believes ‘tribulation could begin soon’

Published: 2 days ago

Blood Moons. A total solar eclipse traversing the country. A devastating hurricane. And next up, an astronomical sign seemingly straight out of the book of Revelation.

Is God trying to say something?

Pastor Mark Biltz, the man who discovered the “Blood Moons” phenomenon and is one of the world’s foremost experts on the “signs of the times,” says he believes the startling convergence of events is a message from heaven. And he says arguably the most important sign will be a starry pattern in the sky on Sept. 23.

On that day, the sun will be in the constellation Virgo (known as the virgin). The moon will be below the “feet” of the constellation. Additionally, Venus, Mars and Mercury will be above the constellation. As the constellation Leo has nine stars and will also be above Virgo’s head, the alignment can be interpreted as a “crown” of 12 stars.

Revelation 12: 1-2 reads: “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”

Biltz believes the upcoming sign on Sept. 23 is precisely what this passage is referring to.

“The woman clothed with the sun is the constellation Virgo and represents the nation of Israel,” he explained. “The 12 stars represent the 12 tribes of Israel. Interestingly, the constellation Leo, the lion, which is above Virgo, is made up of nine stars. The lion represents specifically the tribe of Judah. It just so happens this year during the Days of Awe, three planets will join the constellation Leo making up 12 stars. Virgo will be clothed with the sun, and the moon will be under her feet, fulfilling this sign to precise detail.”

Furthermore, said Biltz, contemporary events on Earth are also precisely fitting with biblical prophecy.

Biltz cited Luke 21:25, which says: “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.”

“The next verse also refers to how ‘the powers of heaven shall be shaken.’ Look what happened immediately after the solar eclipse at the beginning of the month of repentance,” he said. “We have the sea and the waves roaring loud and clear because of Hurricane Harvey. Not only that, the eclipse was on the 21st and the hurricane was the 25th. This event has been directly tied to this verse in Luke 21:25! Talk about predicted in the Bible!”

Biltz also expressed amazement at how one of the most devastating hurricanes in American history is being closely followed by the strongest hurricane ever recorded.

“Not only did we have Hurricane Harvey, but now Hurricane Irma is brewing looking like a category 5 for this next week,” noted Biltz.

Biltz, who explains the importance of the biblical calendar in his book “God’s Day Timer,” also believes it is deeply significant the upcoming sign with the constellation Virgo will appear the weekend after Rosh Hashanah.

“As I explain in my book ‘God’s Day Timer: The Believer’s Guide To Divine Appointments,’ the feasts are really to be seen as days when God intersects human history,” said Biltz. “God said there would be signs in the sun, moon and stars and Yeshua [Jesus] confirmed there would be signs in the heavens in the end of days before the Messiah comes.

“I’d caution I don’t ever predict what will happen, so much as connect the dots after they have happened. It is also important to remember prophecy has multiple fulfillments. Still, though I would not say this is definite; I would suggest that the imminent beginning of the Tribulation is definitely a big possibility.”

But why should believers care about what is happening in the sky? Isn’t looking for such signs uncomfortably close to the practice of astrology?

Biltz points out Scripture itself speaks of the importance of signs in the sky. He also says there is a critical distinction between astrology and what he calls “biblical astronomy.”

“Biblical astronomy has nothing to do with astrology,” Biltz said. “The devil likes to pervert everything God does as a way of sidelining believers. In astrology, it’s all about you and interpreting the signs in the sky about how it affects your life. In biblical astronomy, it’s all about God. It’s an entirely different focus. God even stated the heavens are declaring the glory of God.”

Biltz contends the signs in the sky are a message from God urging repentance. The recent solar eclipse, in particular, was a message to America.

“I believe solar eclipses over nations is God’s way of warning that nation to turn back to godliness,” the pastor said. “God is not willing that any should perish but all turn back to Him. The sun shines and the rain falls on everyone, both the righteous and the ungodly. We are not to point the finger and blame people as much as each and every one of us are to seek God and find comfort in His presence.”

And Biltz argues the flood of extraordinary signs both in the heavens and on Earth means the time to repent may be running out.

“I believe, as the Bible states, that when we see these things we should be looking up in expectation that our redemption is drawing near,” he told WND
