Anak Krakatoa Alert: Quakes Now Continuous

October 2, 2011 Comments off

The source of this happening to the greatest number comes from the hand of Father. Earthquakes. Tornadoes. Sheer wind, hail and lightning. Volcanic eruptions. Hurricanes, Tsunami and tidal waves. All of Father’s arsenal is now aimed at this planet’s inhabitants.

How do you know that what we reveal comes from Father? Moses is your example:

Numbers 16:28-30 ” Then Moses said, “This is how you will know that the LORD sent me to do all these things and that it was not of my own will: If these men die [naturally] as all people would, and suffer the fate of all, then the LORD has not sent me. But if the LORD brings about something unprecedented, and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them along with all that belongs to them so that they go down alive into Sheol, then you will know that these men have despised the LORD.”

VIVAnews (Translated)- Mount Anak Krakatau has raised the status of a “standby” or level IV. The Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG), Surono said a rise in status is set on Friday, September 30, 2011 evening at 24.00. The reason is the elevated status because of the high-intensity earthquake. Today, for example. “On October 2, 2011, at 00.00 until 12.00, there are 2745 recorded seismicity,” said Surono, when contacted VIVAnews.com , Sunday, October 2, 2011. quake Mount Anak Krakatau, Surono added, and even felt up to the island of Anak Krakatau.”So often, streak continues. Although the earthquake was too small, 2 on the Richter scale, even under an SR, but because it feels so constantly,” he added. He explains, almost since 2007, Krakatau did not stop the move and explode.”In a moment stopped, erupted in 2009. I think this mountain is most often erupt,” he added.Related increased status, PVMBG recommends residents not to approach the mountain within a radius of 2 kilometers. Not in the main island of Anak Krakatau. “We ask people coast of Banten and Lampung continue business as usual, do not panic, do not fall for the tsunami issue,” said Surono. “This is Anak Krakatoa erupted, not her mother (Krakatoa),” he added. Mbah Rono – Surono so fondly called – describes Anak Krakatoa is a young volcano. He must often erupt to grow into a big and tall. “Mount it to be big and tall because of the eruption, “he added. There are two post in charge of monitoring Anak Krakatau, which is in Pasauran, and in Kalianda Banten, Lampung. Surono mention, there are currently six volcanoes in Indonesia a standby status, ie Son of Krakatoa, Lokon, Karangetang, Papandayan, Tambora, and Children Ranakah , The status of “alert” is 16. (Kd)

Is climate change making us crazy?

August 30, 2011 1 comment

A new report warns that droughts and floods can fuel severe mental-health problems like anxiety, depression, and even suicide.

Scientists worldwide are forecasting severe drought, unprecedented flooding, and scorching heat waves as a result of climate change. One thing that’s often overlooked in these discussions, however, is the effect that climate change may have on our mental health. But researchers in Australia have just published a reportA Climate of Suffering: The Real Cost of Living with Inaction on Climate Change, that gives us some new clues. Here, a brief guide to this research:

How could climate change affect our sanity? 
First, natural disasters like hurricanes and floods have a profound impact on individual suffering. As a result of these disasters, as many as one in five people could suffer from anxiety, depression, suicide, domestic violence, or substance abuse, say the report’s authors. Months after tropical cyclone Larry struck Australia in 2006, for example, more than one in 10 primary school children reported symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And in some rural Australian communities, the suicide rate has jumped by 8 percent since a massive drought took hold several years ago.

What other impacts are expected?
For years-long disasters, researchers have observed the long-term collapse of community solidarity. For instance, during and after events like the prolonged drought that has gripped Australia for more than a decade, there’s “a breakdown of social cohesion caused by loss of work and associated stability,” says Erik Jensen in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Who is most vulnerable to these problems?
Children are particularly susceptible to mental health issues like pre-disaster anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. And the long-term mental health effects of climate change are likely to be felt strongest inpoorer countries and in rural areas within industrialized nations, the study finds, since these places have the least access to mental health services.

Aren’t natural disasters like hurricanes and droughts normal?
Yes, but not with the intensity and frequency many areas of the world are now seeing. ”While cyclones, drought, bushfires [wildfires], and floods are all a normal part of Australian life, there is no doubt our climate is changing,” say the report’s authors. ”For instance, the intensity and frequency of bushfires is greater. This is a ‘new normal’, for which the past provides little guidance.” – The Week

Yes, the climate is changing – but it’s at the same time much more than just “climate change”, as many would hope and expect us to believe. Extreme weather has become the norm because we are currently in the Tribulation, and have been now for several years. And Yahweh, who is also Mother Nature, delivers Her messages via Her nature. We are a world under judgment – every nation on the planet – and Yahweh will continue to deliver Her wrath until the time Armageddon begins. Father is moving this world of people towards all out anarchy as the Wrath grows near for execution of His vengeance upon those that will be left behind in this world.

Signs of the Times: Natural Disasters Prevalent in 2011

August 24, 2011 Comments off

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The year 2011 began with a flood in Australia so vast it turned an area almost twice as large as Texas into a disaster zone.

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.”

Japan’s Quake

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.”

Magma plume report: A barometer of the planet indicates earth changes are accelerating

August 9, 2011 Comments off

The most frequent question I’m asked is how much time do we have left before something major occurs? Not long, as you’ll shortly see. I included this map in my book so everyone could know that magma plumes are the planet’s geologic thermal dissipative features and as such, they are an early-warning sign that entropic processes are accelerating and magma levels are rising uniformly across the planet. Let’s start with Indonesia’s 18 volcanoes that are now on alert and showing above-normal activity- Because of the Java and Coral Sea plumes, we can expect growing unrest from the Merapi Sundoro Dieng volcanic complex, the Taboro, the Gunung Ranakah and Sirung volcanic complex which comprises about 28 volcanic cones. The Canary Island magma plume is also igniting the El Hierro earthquake swarm which has seen more than 750 quakes over a three-week period. The recent spike in volcanic activity at Mount Etna and Stromboli can similarly be attributed to activity at the Etna plume. The rivers of lava that have flowed from the Kilauea volcano, along with the uptick in tremors, including the 3.2 earthquake in July, are indications the Hawaii plume is similarly agitated. We have also seen recent earthquakes off the coast of Oregon from Juan de Fuca, quakes in France from the potential activation of Eifel, and volcanic stirrings in Iceland. There was also a 4.9 earthquake at 10 km just south of Easter Island today. From what we see now, the time-clock that is behind many of these geologic changes appears to be accelerating. That said, Yellowstone is one of the most dangerous plumes on the planet but since its past historical eruptions are said to be linked to movement of the North American tectonic plate across the caldera; I have theorized that this could be a latter-stage event in these earth-changes since thermal forces, themselves, accelerate tectonic plate movements and increase earthquake and volcanic activity.  –The Extinction Protocol

Father, just as She killed off all land dwelling life during the global flood in past time has now extended Her bowls of wrath to destroy not only land or surface dwelling life forms, but also that which is in the seas of this planet. All that you view is tainted by Dawn Lucifer’s vile hand of sin. The plant life. The rock formations. The very water, the foods, and each breath of air you each consume on a daily basis is impure in Father’s eyes. This is because the entire world has become impure with the imprint Dawn Lucifer Satan the Devil has placed upon Father’s works brought forth by Michael the Archangel from olden times. Because of this branding of Satan’s imprint upon the creation he coveted without rightful ownership, it must all be destroyed. This world is not only beyond mankind’s and Dawn Lucifer’s repair, it is also like a person with terminal cancer. The dying process of what is upon this planet earth cannot be halted. The earth itself will endure forever, but everything upon and within this planet is slated for destruction.

Recent Volcanic Activity and Impending Eruptions

August 6, 2011 Comments off

Italy – Stromboli is stirring. This marks the first lava effusion outside the crater terrace since the emission of a small lava flow in the night of 11-12 December 2010. Around 2100 GMT on 1 August, a vast accumulation of incandescent material appeared at the base of vent N1, the northernmost of the various active vents that lie within the crater terrace at about 750 m elevation on Stromboli. A few minutes later, this material started to collapse and slide, and then developed two small lobes of lava, the more easterly of which descended slowly on the steep slope of the northern portion of the Sciara del Fuoco, repeatedly generating collapse and small landslides derived from the loose material that the slope is made of. The lava then accumulated on the flat area where the hornitos of the 2002-2003 eruption had been located, before making its way down the steep slope below that flat area (as is shown in the two bottom frames in the figure above). On the late morning of 2 August, the lava flow had descended to about 500 m elevation and was advancing very slowly. During the early afternoon of the same day, feeding of the lava flow appeared to diminish. This lava flow represents the first major summit overflow at Stromboli for several decades, the most recent similar event being the eruption of November 1975. During the subsequent eruptions, in 1985-1986 and 2002-2003, lava effusion occurred from eruptive fissures on the upper northern slope of the Sciara del Fuoco, whereas in 2007, the main effusive vent was located at 400 m elevation. Differently from these eruptions, the usual Strombolian activity from the summit craters has not ceased with the onset of lava effusion on 1-2 August 2011. –CT.Ing.It

Russia – The Kamchatka Peninsula, along Russia’s Pacific coast, is currently the most volcanically active area in the world: four volcanoes are erupting simultaneously, and a fifth is showing signs of an impending eruption. Ash plumes from two of these volcanoes are visible in this natural-colour satellite image. Along the northern (top) edge of the image Shiveluch emits a broad gray plume from the lava dome growing on its southern flank. 90 kilometres (60 miles) to the southwest a much smaller plume escapes from Bezymianny. This image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Aqua satellite on August 3, 2011. Bright green vegetation covers the river floodplains and mountainsides, which gives way to bare rock and eventually snow at higher elevations. -IWO

HAWAII - Eruptive activity at Hawaii’s Kīlauea volcano is continuing, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Experts say the crater floor and lava lake within Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō collapsed and lava flowed out of its west flank on Wednesday, leading to the closure of some  local roads in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. The USGS stated: “Measurements today showed that the Pu’u ‘Ō’ō crater floor collapsed about 80-85 m (260-280 ft). The Pu’u ‘Ō’ō crater rim remained extremely unstable, with continued collapses along the crater walls sending blocks of rock onto the crater floor. Gas emissions from east rift zone sources remain elevated. Tourists have since flocked to the site to view dramatic glows from the new Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō eruption from several vantage points. In addition, Kīlauea’s summit eruption at Halema‘uma‘u crater continues, and visitors can often hear the roar from rocks exploding off crater walls, and can observe a beautiful red glow after nightfall. -IWO

ALASKA – Signs of lava at Mount Cleveland prompted volcanologists to raise their alert level Tuesday afternoon for the Aleutian Islands volcano. The Alaska Volcano Observatory reports “heightened or escalated unrest” and the possibility of an eruption at the 5,676-foot volcano, according to the observatory’s website. Cleveland Volcano comprises the western half of Chuginidak Island, which sits about 115 miles west of Dutch Harbor and 950 miles southwest of Anchorage. Satellite data and visual observations in late July revealed a lava dome about 140 feet in diameter growing in the volcano’s crater, said volcanologist Chris Waythomas. The dome grew another 10 feet or so between Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the observatory. “Sometimes lava domes like that can be explosive and lead to ash production,” Waythomas said. The volcano observatory raised the advisory status from “advisory” to “watch” and the aviation warning level from yellow to orange. Cleveland is capable of blasting volcanic ash more than 20,000 feet into the sky — a significant danger to air traffic in the vicinity — so staff at the observatory decided to warn aviators of a possible explosive eruption, the researcher said. Still, it’s not certain that any ash-producing eruption will occur, Waythomas said. –Anchorage Daily News

INDONESIA - A newly released NASA satellite image shows an ash plume drifting from a volcano that produced one of the largest eruptions in modern history. Anak Krakatau (also known as Krakatoa), a volcanic island in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in Indonesia, has been intermittently active for the past several decades. The island exploded in 1883, killing approximately 40,000 people, although some estimates put the death toll much higher. The explosion is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard in modern history, with reports of it being heard nearly 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from its point of origin. The shock wave from the explosion was recorded on barographs around the globe.  On July 31, 2011, a wispy ash plume rose above the volcano and drifted west (up in the below image). The natural-colour satellite image was acquired by the Advanced Land Imager (ALI) aboard Earth Observing-1 (EO-1). Dark gray areas of Anak Krakatau are composed principally of lava flows deposited in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s. These flows are topped by a young cinder cone near the center of the island. Green vegetation covers older lavas along the eastern coastline. The last significant activity at the volcano occurred in January 2011.  –The Irish Weather On-line

OREGON — In order to monitor a potentially active volcano in Oregon’s Crater Lake National Park, the U.S. Geological Survey wants to build a 60-foot tall tower that will allow the transmission of information from surveying instruments. The monitoring agency released a draft report last week in which it said the current infrastructure in the park can’t support the additional load needed to transmit volcanic monitoring data to the Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, Wash. The new tower would allow 24-hour monitoring of the volcano. Scientists can use warning signs such as small earthquakes, release of volcanic gases and swelling of the volcano surface to predict an eruption. –Register Guard

Revelation 9:18 “A third of the human race was killed by these three plagues—by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur that came from their mouths.”

A third of the human race is slated for destruction during this tribulation period. They die from three plagues. Fire, its smoke, and sulfur. The fire comes forth from volcanic activity. The sulfur is spewed forth from the volcanoes that will soon take their toll on a third of mankind by causing three unified plagues in the form of fire, toxic smoke, and heated sulfur.

Father entered the core of this planet with Her presence during the time this ministry had begun. Her purpose was to heat the core so that the planet would be aided in the cycle that has been taking place with carbon emissions. To heat the core to the point that it must spew forth its heated lava from all of the volcanoes on this planet. When this occurs, many will curse God because they will know Father has abandoned the human race. But fear not, Father has not forgotten Her remnant of faithful servants. However, it will be a severe test on all that reside on this planet. The volcanoes beneath the oceans and boiling the waters in the lower depths in preparation for the cataclysmic event that will be in unison with the other volcanoes around the globe.

New Series of Quakes Between Messina and Mount Etna

July 7, 2011 Comments off

Palermo – An uncountable series of quakes have been recorded in Sicily. The strongest one had a magnitude of 3.1 and was recorded in the province of Messina, along the northern coast of Sicily that has been subjected to a persisting series of seismic events in the last few weeks. The quake was detected 3:01 am at a depth of a little more than 8 km. In the same area, a lighter 2.3 magnitude quake was recorded at 1:58 at approximately the same depth. Source

Warnings of Volcanic Eruptions

July 5, 2011 Comments off

Scientists are now warning that volcanoes in Western Victoria and South Australia are due to erupt.

The prediction comes just hours after two earthquakes hit the state this morning.

Using new dating techniques, University of Melbourne scientists have found that the volcanoes usually erupt every 2000 years, with the last eruption at Mt Gambier, South Australia, 5000 years ago.

Earth sciences Professor Bernie Joyce says Australia needs a plan in case of an eruption.

It comes as Victorians are warned to brace themselves for more tremors after a shallow magnitude quake hit at 11.32am, sending shockwaves through towns and suburbs more than 100 kilometres away.

A series of tremors lasting up to 15 seconds have been felt across Melbourne’s CBD and southeastern suburbs.

A second, smaller quake shook Korumburra, with reports it was again felt in Melbourne, at 12.37pm

Senior seismologist Clive Collins said people should prepare for aftershocks in the coming hours.

“There will be aftershocks, that’s a certainty,” he told the Herald Sun.

“We still expect lots of smaller ones.

“After the last significant quake in Victoria there were more than 200 aftershocks.”

The tremors shook Melbourne office buildings and many homes across the state, including Warragul, Ferntree Gully, Sunbury and as far north as Melbourne Airport.

Father’s 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.

As time moves on the numbers Father executes will be evident by those that are soon to perish by the emptying of more wrath from the bowls. You must come to understand that the destruction is coming from Father. It is a final warning during the tribulation period before the door closes and the cup of wrath is administered.

Is Mount Rainer volcano waking up?

July 2, 2011 Comments off

Some of the biggest rock avalanches in years have been roaring off Mount Rainier over the past several days, kicking up billowing clouds of dust and propelling rivers of muddy debris nearly two miles down the volcano’s flanks. No one has been injured, but one group of climbers fled as dust descended on their tent after a rock-fall Saturday afternoon. “From my standpoint of looking at the mountain for 20 years, we’ve probably had rock-falls like this once every five or 10 years,” said Stefan Lofgren, lead climbing ranger for Mount Rainier National Park. Since June 24, at least three major rock-falls and several smaller ones have sloughed off the rocky ridge called Nisqually Cleaver, at an elevation of about 12,800 feet. The one that let loose Saturday afternoon was the biggest. University of Washington graduate student Max Stevens and his father were about to head out across the Nisqually Glacier to retrieve a GPS instrument used to measure the glacier’s movement. “I heard it first and looked up and saw a house-sized block of rock falling off Nisqually Cleaver,” he said. The pair were on skis, and they skedaddled. “We got out of there,” Stevens said. “This cloud of dust just filled the basin.” When it became clear the avalanche wasn’t headed in his direction, Stevens watched the debris flow down the glacier. “There were truck-sized blocks of ice flowing like ice cubes in a stream of water,” he said. “I was scared for a moment … but it quickly turned to pure amazement.” Climbing ranger Chris Kalman was at Camp Muir, a popular day-hike destination and climbers’ bivouac at 10,080 feet on the mountain’s south side, above Paradise. The day was sunny and warm when a sound like an explosion split the air. “It was huge,” Kalman said. “People were pretty much in awe. Things like this may happen only a few times in someone’s life,” he said. Another avalanche hit Monday. The events were big enough to register on earthquake sensors, and seismologists at the University of Washington called the park to see what was going on.

The death toll of humankind will steadily mount from unnatural causes. The source of this happening to the greatest number comes from the hand of Father. Earthquakes. Tornadoes. Sheer wind, hail and lightning. Volcanic eruptions. Hurricanes, Tsunami and tidal waves. All of Father’s arsenal is now aimed at this planet’s inhabitants.

It is Father as nature’s source of destruction and as Moses did centuries ago, we make you aware that Father is angry. 

Father’s 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.

As time moves on the numbers Father executes will be evident by those that are soon to perish by the emptying of more wrath from the bowls. You must come to understand that the destruction is coming from Father. It is a final warning during the tribulation period before the door closes and the cup of wrath is administered.

If you believe it is only nature that is bringing devastation, then you need to understand who nature is a part of, and who uses it to bring forth Her will. The bowls of wrath represent nature at its deadliest. The cup of wrath represents execution by holy angelic warriors.

How will you know that what you reveal comes from Father? Moses is your example:

Numbers 16:28-30 ” Then Moses said, “This is how you will know that the LORD sent me to do all these things and that it was not of my own will: If these men die [naturally] as all people would, and suffer the fate of all, then the LORD has not sent me. But if the LORD brings about something unprecedented, and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them along with all that belongs to them so that they go down alive into Sheol, then you will know that these men have despised the LORD.”

Earth in the Balance, Humankind on the Edge

June 26, 2011 Comments off

Complacency is baked into our species. We can’t resist thinking that recent experience defines the future. Give us a run of good luck, and we are apt to turn that into an implicit expectation that our luck will continue — even that we are entitled to it.

This kind of thinking was instrumental in the run-up to the financial crash of 2008. Too many private and public institutions assumed that an extraordinary run in prosperity, particularly in the real estate market, was just normal. It didn’t occur to them that things could go so wrong. Even when token stress testing or risk assessment was done, it largely excluded the possibility of a bad shock or a protracted slump. Risk wasn’t systematically measured; it was ignored.

It’s easy to write this off to greed or foolishness on the part of Wall Street. But the truth is, our entire civilization rests on a foundation just as shaky. We assume that the very Earth is static and will always be as it is now, or as we remember it.

Yet geophysics tells us that is emphatically not the case. Bad things happen. In the past couple of years alone, we have witnessed a litany of horrific natural disasters. Early last year, Haiti, already one of the most impoverished places in the world, was slammed by a magnitude 7 earthquake that caused hundreds of thousands of deaths, both directly and as the result of a cholera epidemic that occurred 10 months later during the recovery effort.

Flights Cancelled

In Iceland last year, a long-dormant volcano erupted, necessitating the cancellation of more than 100,000 flights, and causing an estimated $1.8 billion in losses across Europe (but no deaths). Just a few months ago, Japan was savaged by the fourth-most-powerful earthquake ever caught on seismographs and an ensuing tsunami that killed more than 15,000 people, brought down almost 200,000 buildings and (unfairly) tarnished the image of nuclear energy worldwide. This was only seven years after a tsunami in the Indian Ocean killed at least a quarter-million people.

When the Earth itself isn’t tormenting us, the weather is. Within the past few months, the U.S. has been wracked by drought, wildfires and record-breaking flooding and tornadoes; the damage bill will total more than $32 billion. Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Joplin, Missouri; and, more surprisingly, Monson, Massachusetts, were flattened by tornadoes, which have taken more American lives this tornado season than in any year since 1927.

A Restive Earth

What’s behind all this terrestrial unrest? The answer may not be comforting, but it is simple: A run of bad events like this is completely normal. Nature contains many phenomena that are usually benign but sometimes turn vicious. The probability that really bad things will happen is low — but it isn’t zero. Its rarity only lulls people into a false sense of security.

Source

Is a run of bad events completely normal? Do you believe that what is occurring in the world is just the earth taking its natural course? Or perhaps Global Warming? HAARP, maybe?

Or do you understand that God IS nature and that He uses nature as His arsenal against the wicked? Yahweh is speaking through His Powerful Right Arm via His natural arsenal – Nature.

Is All the Wild Weather Connected?

June 11, 2011 Comments off

This has been a wild year, weather-wise.

In the winter, there was the record snowfall across the Northeast. Record rainfall and floods in Ohio Valley followed in April and May. The Southwest has been plagued by drought for months, while tornadoes have devastated the Midwest and South. Record heat is scorching most of the country this week — just days after snow fell in Hawaii. Meteorologists predict a harrowing hurricane season.

Is some underlying climactic condition driving these extreme weather events? There are two potential candidates: The first is La Niña, trade winds that blow through every five years, cooling the water of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and shifting the jet stream northwest. The second is global warming, the average worldwide temperature increase of 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit over the past century that has resulted from the dramatic rise of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.

La Niña and global warming are both partly responsible for some of the episodes of wild weather, experts say. However, natural atmospheric variability has also come into play this year; to some extent, the pile-on of wild weather is random chance.

Source

The “experts” fail to see a third possibility – that being Yahweh’s wrath that brings the calamities via wild weather and natural disasters upon the nations.

The land of Israel is Her reality we exist within. And to the nations of 2011:

Jeremiah 28:16 “Therefore, this is what the LORD says: ‘I am about to send you off the face of the earth. You will die this year because you have spoken rebellion against the LORD. ‘ ”

Unless you are raptured away from the earth, you would share in being swept away, just like Lot was warned when he was ushered away to safety by the holy angels whom took him by the hand and led him and his family away from the coming Wrath. Lot’s wife perished, because she was not obedient to Yahweh’s command.

Genesis 19:15 “At the crack of dawn the angels urged Lot on: “Get up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city.”
