Please… Mega Quake

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Revelation with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 5, 2018 by paulthepoke

Revelation 16:17-20 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell, and God remembered Babylon the great, to make her drain the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath. And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found.

 

 

The context of this verse is before the Second Coming of Christ. It occurs near the end of the seven-year Tribulation. The Millennial Kingdom is about to commence. The seventh bowl concludes the judgments upon the earth and humanity.

…and a great earthquake such as there had never been since man was on the earth, so great was that earthquake. The last earthquake mentioned in the Bible will be the largest and strongest in the history of humanity. This earthquake will also be the most destructive. The Greek expression of the quake is restated three times. The earthquake is greatness and magnitude upon greatness and magnitude upon greatness and magnitude. The scale and power are larger than the Discovery Channel can imagine. It is the Mega Quake!

The great city was split into three parts. The great city is mystery Babylon. Some think the city is a reborn Babylon in modern day Iraq. Others think it is Rome, Italy. Some believe it is Istanbul, Turkey. Mecca, Saudi Arabia is a city on seven hills. Pick your seven hilled city. Conjecture in regards to city is pointless.

…and the cities of the nations fell… All the cities (plural) of the nations (plural) are doomed. The Greek word for “fell” is πιπτο/pipto. Per Strong’s Concordance, it means: to descend from a higher place to a lower; to be thrust down; come to an end, disappear, cease; to lose authority, no longer have force. Metaphorically: to fall under judgment, came under condemnation. “It is done!”

And every island fled away, and no mountains were to be found. The idea of no more mountains and changed geography is noted in multiple places in the Bible. Revelation is not the only source of this concept.

The level of destruction is unimaginable. We cannot comprehend. It says what it says.

 

 

 

Trend Update: Tremors in Super Volcanoes, August 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2017 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11a There will be great earthquakes…

While America was watching the solar eclipse…there were a couple of earthquakes of note. The issue was not the size of the quakes but the location. An earthquake was reported in Yellowstone National Park during the eclipse. Also in Europe, a quake was noted near Naples, Italy on the island of Ischia. Both of these earthquakes took place in relation to super volcanoes.

The vacation island of Ischia is located west of the Naples metro area. Ischia Island is located in the Campi Flegrei super volcano complex. This is the same region that is home to Mount Vesuvius near Pompeii. This is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.

The quake has been revised to 4.2 on the Richter Scale at a depth of 10 km (approximately 6 miles). Up to 14 aftershocks have been reported. Damage to buildings and homes has been significant. At least 2 lives were lost. Injuries continue to mount.

yellowstoneYellowstone National Park: A 3.2 magnitude quake was indicated on the western edge of the park per the USGS. Quakes in the Yellowstone area have been increasing in frequency and intensity over the past few months. With all the activity in the park, the ground is reported to have risen by 3 inches in various area.

NASA is reported to have plans on the books to stop a Yellowstone volcano eruption.

The following is an excerpt from The Sun. One of the “risky” plans includes drilling to the bottom of the the volcano and using high pressure water to release heat from the magma chamber.

Editorial comment by this author…bad idea. This concept is not working with injection wells at fracking sites in the oil fields. The end result has been earthquakes where quakes had not previously occurred. See Oklahoma.

Of note, all stories related to this event in Yellowstone were noted in foreign news sources from England and Israel.

Long Valley CAThese two super volcanoes are not the only active areas. The Long Valley Caldera in California is awake. Seismic activity is reported at negative levels per the USGS. Measurements taken are relative to sea level. The majority of quake activity is reported to occur below sea level. Many shallow quakes occur at depth down to 7 miles or less below the surface. That would mean the activity taking place in California is occurring in the mountains of the volcano. As in Yellowstone, the geography of the area is reported to be raised up to 6 inches.

 

Lake Toba and Krakatoa in Indonesia remain active with consistent seismic activity. Super volcanoes are actively rumbling in Europe, North America, and southeast Asia.

Trend Update: Italian Supervolcano at “Critical Stage”, May 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2017 by paulthepoke

Psalm 97:5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

May 17, 2017: The Italian super volcano Campi Flegrei is flaring again. Reports out of Italy indicate risk of eruption is increasing. Campi Flegrei translates to “burning fields” in Italian. The caldera is estimated to be seven miles across. Campi Flegrei has not erupted since 1538.

The volcano is located approximately 11 miles southwest of Naples, Italy. 500,000 people live in the Naples area. The local area is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.

The area is across the bay from Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. History records the big eruption in 79 AD which resulted in the destruction of Pompeii and nearby villages.

 

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.

Dr. Christopher Kilburn, Director of the UCL Hazard Centre, said: “By studying how the ground is cracking and moving at Campi Flegrei, we think it may be approaching a critical stage where further unrest will increase the possibility of an eruption, and it’s imperative that the authorities are prepared for this.

“We don’t know when or if this long-term unrest will lead to an eruption, but Campi Flegrei is following a trend we’ve seen when testing our model on other volcanoes, including Rabaul in Papua New Guinea, El Hierro in the Canary Islands, and Soufriere Hills on Montserrat in the Caribbean.”

He added: “We are getting closer to forecasting eruptions at volcanoes that have been quiet for generations by using detailed physical models to understand how the preceding unrest develops.”

Nahum 1:5 Mountains quake because of Him and the hills dissolve; indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, the world and all the inhabitants in it.

“In case of a big one, it could affect our chances to live in Europe, immediately killing hundreds of thousands if not millions. Ashes would cover the sun, possibly for days/months/years, affecting humanity, fauna, and flora in other continents.” -Dr. Luca De Siena, University of Aberdeen

Seismic activity is a hallmark of end time’s happenings. Earthquakes and volcano eruptions have dramatically risen in the past 2-4 years. This report is about one volcano in Italy. The Bible states volcanic activity will be global and affect all the people of the earth.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.

2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.

Trend Update: Naples, Italy Super Volcano Awakens??? January 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 3, 2017 by paulthepoke

Psalm 97:5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.

Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.

Nahum 1:5 Mountains quake because of Him and the hills dissolve; indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, the world and all the inhabitants in it.

Reports out of Italy have been emerging since Christmas 2016. A super volcano near Naples, Italy may be coming back to life. The area is prone to volcanic activity with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and the destruction of Pompeii and other local villages.

The Campi Flegrei area west of Naples may be reaching a critical pressure point. Campi Flegrei translates to “burning fields” in Italian. The caldera is estimated to be seven miles across. The eruption threat level was raised in 2012 from green to yellow. Now in 2017, temperature and magma levels are rising.

Giovanni Chiodini, a researcher at Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Bologna stated, “Hydrothermal rocks, if heated, can ultimately lose their mechanical resistance, causing an acceleration towards critical conditions.”

Is this a proclamation that an eruption would signal the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy? NO!

This is one super volcano in one country. If this volcano were to erupt, 500,000 people in the Naples area would be in severe danger. This is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. It would be a terrible disaster.

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/01/02/massive-volcano-is-rumblingright-under-one-italys-biggest-cities-report.html

One has to admit, seismic frequency and intensity are on the increase over the past decades. The trend and trajectory are up.

The scope and scale of Biblical prophecy is global and not isolated to a country or region of that country. Scripture has multiple examples of seismic activity in the end times scenario. It is not hard to find verses and references. Peter makes it very clear. This will happen suddenly like a thief.

2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.

Trend Update: Quakes in Various Places, Italy, November 2016

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2016 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:11 …and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. –Jesus

There are parallel passages regarding earthquakes by Jesus in Matthew 24:7 and Mark 13:8. The context is the Olivet Discourse. Jesus is answering questions from the disciples regarding the signs of His coming and the End of the Age (Matthew 24:3).

October 31, 2016: Hundreds of earthquakes have hit central Italy over the past couple of months. Over 15,000 people are in shelters. The recent 6.6 tremblor is the strongest to hit Italy in 36 years.

A concern is a dormant volcano near Lake Albano is showing signs of life. The lake is located a few miles southeast of Rome. Scientists indicate magma is building. The ground is rising 2-3 mm per year.

“When the eruption happens, it has an explosive effect, like opening a champagne bottle after shaking it,” Fabrizio Marra of the National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology in Italy.

“It’s out of the question that they [the recent earthquakes] could have significant effects, at least for now, maybe in a thousand years they will.”

According to the experts, there is no need to worry…

Luke 21:25 And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves… -Jesus

Halloween 2016: To add insult to injury, a tropical storm formed in the Mediterranean Sea. The activity formed on October 28, 2016 and intensified.

A “Medicane” is an extremely rare weather event for the area.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.

One gets the sense, this is not ending soon.

Take a side, Jesus or scientific experts.
