The first half of 2011 saw thousands of lives lost to natural disasters and made it the most expensive on record in terms of property damage.
In January, earthquakes hit Argentina, Chile, Iran, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Tonga. In February, they hit Burma, the Pacific Islands and the big one, in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The quake struck at midday. Buildings were toppled. Scores were buried under rubble and 181 died. Survivors who crawled from collapsed office buildings were stunned.
One woman who appeared dazed, said of her office building, “It just came down. Like, right down.”
The monster earthquake of 2011 in Japan was like something out of a science fiction movie. From 20 miles under the surface of the Pacific, the quake created a wall of water 130 feet high that traveled six miles inland, causing cars and boats to bob like toys.
It was a quake so powerful it moved the island of Honshu eight feet. More than 15,000 people died and nearly 5,000 are still missing.
Then in a terrible twist, after the quake knocked out power at the Fukushima nuclear plant, the tsunami washed out its backup generators, the last line of defense against overheating. It would be the world’s first triple meltdown, spreading radiation over a wide area.
It was the worst disaster to afflict Japan since World War II.
U.S. Tornado Outbreak
The world was still in shock when the southern and eastern United States experienced the worst rash of tornadoes in recorded weather history. The 2011 “Super Outbreak” included four EF-5 tornadoes, and led to almost 350 deaths and more than $6 billion in insured losses.
Then just weeks later on a Sunday afternoon in May, a mile-wide multiple vortex EF-5 tornado plowed through Joplin, Mo., obliterating parts of the city, killing 159 people and causing an estimated $2 billion in insured losses.
The insurance industry was left reeling. Americans were in shock.
Vinson Synan, author of 19 books and the dean emeritus at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va., says the unprecedented string of calamities is forcing many Americans to ask, ‘Why?’
“It’s a sobering thing, for even natural man to face up to natural disasters that don’t make any sense at all. And to hit randomly in the world, and may hit you,” Synan said. “And the question, in the back of their minds — ‘What does this mean?’”
“So I think it brings people to question the ultimate end of everything,” he explained.
And unfortunately, the world’s worst disasters could still be ahead, like a category five hurricane making a direct hit on a large American city.
Disaster Scenarios Studied
Experts have studied other disaster scenarios that many Americans do not know about.
For example, geologists have warned that heavy rains on Mount Rainer in Washington State could cause a deadly 40-mile mudslide moving at 60 mph, filled with rocks and trees.
Some fear the collapse of the giant volcanic mountain Cumbre Vieja in the Canary Islands could send an 80-foot high tsunami slamming into the east coast of the United States at 600 mph.
And along the Mississippi, a catastrophic quake at the giant new Madrid fault would cause utter devastation to America’s heartland, changing the course of the mighty Mississippi, and causing the ground to roll like the ocean, as it did in 1811 and 1812.
Many Americans might think they live in one of the safest periods in world history. But do they? Why have so many natural disasters struck the planet this year, and what does it mean?
“It brings people to question the ultimate end of everything. Even the natural man who doesn’t even know God, is saying ‘Something bad is happening,’ ‘It’s getting worse and worse,’” Synan told CBN News.
“What are the ultimate reasons for this? What’s the ultimate answer from God or from somewhere?,’” he asked. – CBN
It is Father as Nature’s SOURCE of destruction. Father is angry and His holy angels are pouring out the bowls of wrath on an evil world of people. Keep count of how many more are perishing by Father’s hand, and those dying from Satan’s hand in causing violence throughout this planet, just as he did before the global flood.
Matthew 24:3-8 “Signs of the End of the Age”
“While He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached Him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Then Jesus replied to them: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many. You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, because these things must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these events are the beginning of birth pains.”
June 26, 2011 – SCOTLAND – Scotland’s sunniest city experienced a freak hailstorm this week after ominous clouds moved over Dundee. Thunder, lightning, heavy rainfall and hailstones hit Dundee on Thursday afternoon. The city played host to winter weather in the middle of June, days after the summer solstice. The Lochee area in the west of the city was among the worst hit by the storm, which occurred at around 4.15pm and lasted for 45 minutes. Tayside Fire and Rescue did not receive any reports of flash flooding during the storm. STV weather presenter Sean Batty said: “While hailstones surprise many during the summer months, in actual fact this is when they are most likely, with more warmth around which in turn develops large thunder clouds and these heavy showers. Hailstones don’t just happen in cold weather, they are developed by these huge clouds which bubble up high into the atmosphere where it is very cold and these hailstones form before they fall. Over the past few days conditions have been perfect in parts of the country for the development of these slow-moving deeply convective showers which produce huge amounts of energy meaning these torrential downpours can happen anytime.”
Daniel 2:21 “He changes the times and seasons; He removes kings and establishes kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
Daniel 2:22 ” He reveals the deep and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and light dwells with Him.”
“He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
”He removes kings and establishes kings.” How does Yahweh do that? She crushes them as stated at Daniel 2:44. How?
Joel 2:7 “They attack as warriors [attack]; they scale walls as men of war [do]. Each goes on his own path, and they do not change their course.”
And so Yahweh also does what just before the kings are removed? “”He changes the times and seasons;” Do you have warm weather in winter and cold weather in summer? Tornadoes out of season? Soon, time itself will become distorted.
Powerful thunderstorms will target part of Tornado Alley into Thursday, but the most and the worst of the storms will tend to ride north and west of areas hit the hardest by tornadoes a couple of weeks ago.
Areas from Texas to Illinois and southern Wisconsin will be the primary focus of the storms with this severe weather outbreak that will include large hail, damaging straight-line wind gusts and a couple of handfuls of tornadoes.
The air battle in the physical realm is coming soon. The United States will lead the joint effort against the LOZ. Satan has advised the USA to fire negative energy laser beams into all new tornadoes and even the threatening clouds that spawn them when the opportunity avails itself.
The U.S. will be testing Satan’s advise on tornado-control with military planes that are already equipped with long range laser weapons. The tornado’s ferocity is heightened by the LOZ members that add the extra power and size coupled with its natural spinning motion, and also alter its direction of movement across a given target area. In reality, the LOZ are the true target and not merely the tornadoes. Kill the added power source and you lessen the damage that would otherwise be catastrophic over that of a nature driven whirlwind.
