Trend Update: Yellowstone Tremors, June 2017

Posted in Earthquakes/Volcanoes, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , on June 27, 2017 by paulthepoke

 

Psalm 46:6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.

Significant seismic activity is a characteristic of the end time scenario. The activity in Yellowstone Park is not.

June 2017: A swarm of earthquakes has recently hit the Yellowstone super caldera in Wyoming. Depending on various reports, up to 800 quakes have taken place. The largest reported tremor was 4.5 magnitude on the Richter Scale. The series of events was noted as “green” by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Predictably, the experts state that Yellowstone is not in danger of a massive eruption. However, the US government is taking the following precautions??? Caution, conspiracy theories are alive and well!

Allegedly, NASA has launched its Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) to monitor the Yellowstone Caldera. At the least, SOFIA has been seen flying over the area.

The following description is per NASA. Built into a converted Boeing 747SP, SOFIA’s 2.5-meter (8.2-foot)-diameter telescope will make it the world’s largest and most sensitive airborne observatory. Flying at 39,000 to 45,000 feet, it will enable scientific observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest of Earth-based telescopes. Peering out through an open cavity in the side of the aircraft, the telescope will allow astronomers to obtain sharper infrared images than ever before. The astronomers, technicians, engineers, educators, and flight crew will work in a comfortable airliner environment during a typical eight-to-nine-hour flight.

One conspiracy theory has the United States offering billions of dollars to other countries for relocation of citizens in case of a massive event. The plan reportedly has US citizens being sent to Australia, Brazil, and Argentina. The relocation plan allegedly was signed, sealed, and delivered in 2014.

Do your own homework and verify.

One way or another, there is a lot of hot air being released…

Trend Update: Earth Staggers Like a Drunk, Planet 9??? October 2016

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2016 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 24:18c-20 For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble. The earth is utterly broken, the earth is split apart, the earth is violently shaken. The earth staggers like a drunken man; it sways like a hut; its transgression lies heavy upon it, and it falls, and will not rise again.

The Earth has fallen and it can’t get up. The context of Isaiah 24 is judgment against all humanity of the earth. The language of the chapter is full of seismic activity consistent with earthquakes. Look at the language of these two and a half verses as examples.

  • Foundations tremble…
  • Earth is broken…
  • Earth is split…
  • Earth is violently shaken…
  • Earth staggers…
  • Sways like a hut…
  • It falls…

In April 2015, the Inuit contacted NASA and informed the sky had changed. The Inuit people reside in the Arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland.

The changes reported included different positions of sun rises and sun sets, longer days, higher sun position, and increased warmth. Changes in moon positioning and constellations were noted as well. Predominant winds have changed directions.

All Inuit elders were in agreement. The planet has shifted toward the north.

January 20, 2016: The following excerpt is from Caltech.

Caltech researchers Mike Brown and Konstantin Batygin have found evidence of a giant planet tracing a bizarre, highly elongated orbit in the outer solar system. The dubbed Planet Nine has a mass about 10 times of Earth. It orbits about 20 times farther from the sun on average than Neptune (orbits the sun at an average distance of 2.8 billion miles). Planet 9 takes between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make one full orbit around the sun.

October 13, 2016: President Obama signs an executive order Coordinating Efforts to Prepare the Nation for Space Weather Events. This executive order has multiple requests to be completed by multiple government agencies after the president is scheduled to leave office.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/10/13/executive-order-coordinating-efforts-prepare-nation-space-weather-events

October 21, 2016: Scientists hypothesize the mysterious Planet 9 may be causing a wobble or tilt to our solar system and sun.

Allegedly, Planet 9 orbits about 30 degrees off the plane of planets in our solar system. As it gets closer, the planet could cause other heavenly bodies to tilt or wobble.

“Because Planet Nine is so massive and has an orbit tilted compared to the other planets, the solar system has no choice but to slowly twist out of alignment,” Elizabeth Bailey, Caltech graduate student and lead author.

“It continues to amaze us; every time we look carefully we continue to find that Planet Nine explains something about the solar system that had long been a mystery,” said Konstantin Batygin, an assistant professor of planetary science.

Beware! This topic is loaded with all kinds of theories. Some call it Planet X, Nibiru, Hercolubus…

As always, do your homework. What’s going on???

 

 

Trend Update: No Sun Spots, June 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2016 by paulthepoke

Luke 21:25 There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves…

For the second time in June 2016, the sun has been observed to be without spots. The current sun cycle has been observed to be the weakest in over a century.  Scientists think this is a warning of a potential solar cycle minimum. Scientists expect an increasing number of days without sun spots in the next few years. The pattern starts with no sun spots for a few days. Then it will last for a few weeks. Finally, the pattern concludes with no sun spots for a few months at a time.

The result on Earth is the upper atmosphere cools and contracts. Translation, colder than normal temperatures with increased precipitation.

http://www.climatedepot.com/2016/06/25/the-sun-goes-blank-again-during-the-weakest-solar-cycle-in-more-than-a-century/

Please note Jesus states there will be “signs” (plural). Is this a “sign”? That’s up to you to decide.

Do know this. Per Scripture, the tribulation is a period of cold and snow and ice. The tribulation will be more consistent with an ice age than the hot and dry “Mad Max” world. Solar cycles are suggesting we are trending in the direction of the Bible’s end time scenario.

Job 38:22-23 Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of distress, for the day of war and battle?

Trend Update: Hole in the Sun, May 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , on May 27, 2016 by paulthepoke

May 17-19, 2016, NASA spots a massive coronal hole in the sun. The hole measures more than 10% of the sun’s surface area. In October 2015, a smaller hole was observed. This hole was the size of 50 earths. As of October 2015, this was believed to be the largest coronal hole on record. Both holes formed in the same area of the sun.

A coronal hole is an area where the sun’s atmosphere is less dense. These holes contain less solar material. A lower temperature is noted than the rest of the corona. These areas tend to send out the fastest solar winds. A coronal hole cannot be seen in visible light with the naked eye. But it can be seen via ultraviolet light. So don’t look directly into the sun!

Scientists do not know how coronal holes form. Fear not say the NASA scientists. This is not a big deal…

http://www.popsci.com/this-hole-in-suns-atmosphere-looks-amazing

http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/674234/Is-the-sun-DISINTEGRATING-NASA-spots-monster-hole-open-up-on-our-star

So if there is less solar material and lower solar temperatures…I take it our planet Earth will probably cool off.

Revelation 6:12b…and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair…

Revelation 8:12 The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.

Revelation 9:2 He opened the bottomless pit, and smoke went up out of the pit, like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit.

Revelation 9:18b…by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which proceeded out of their mouths.

Look at the progression of the sun during the Tribulation per the book of Revelation. Granted, the initial verse could be describing a solar eclipse. BUT, what is going to happen when a 1/3 of the sun is blocked? What is going to happen when the sun shines for 8 hours instead of 12 with a third of the intensity? What is going to happen when the above conditions are compounded by smoke that thickens the air and covers the already limited sun? And for good measure, add more smoke.

The effect on the sun is located in other places besides Revelation. Look at the references to a darkened sun during the Day of the Lord (Joel 2:2, Joel 2:10, Joel 3:15, Zephaniah 1:15, Isaiah 13:6, 9, 10, Isaiah 24:23, Amos 5:20, and Matthew 24:29).

The current political culture of 2016 would suggest the planet is warming. We have Global Warming! Man says the planet is getting hotter. The Bible says the weather during the Tribulation is going to be cold and nasty.

Job 38:22-23 Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of distress, for the day of war and battle?

As Spock would say… “Curious”

Trend Update: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, May 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Signs: Sun, Moon, Stars..., Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2016 by paulthepoke

Revelation 6:13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.

The verse in Revelation 6 is not an isolated reference to stars falling out of the sky. The concept is noted throughout Scripture. Falling stars are a piece of the puzzle indicating the Tribulation. Revelation 6:13 is the beginning of a progression. Eventually, all stars will be covered and not give off their light. There are other significant happenings with the sky, sun, and moon during this time. The focus of this post, the stars.

Jesus refers to falling stars in the Olivet Discourse. Christ is quoting the prophet Isaiah 34:4 in Mark 13:25 and Matthew 24:29. Note the consistency of the events in the verses. Isaiah, Jesus, and John are in complete agreement. The events: 1) sky rolled up like a scroll; 2) stars fall to earth.

Isaiah 34:4 And all the host of heaven will wear away, and the sky will be rolled up like a scroll; all their hosts will also wither away as a leaf withers from the vine, or as one withers from the fig tree.

Joel 3:15 The sun and moon grow dark and the stars lose their brightness.

Conditions deteriorate in Revelation 8:12 when a third of the heavenly bodies are affected. This is the fourth of the seven trumpets, the middle third of the Tribulation. Revelation 8:12 The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.

In Revelation 12:4a another third of the stars are removed from the sky. Revelation 12:4 And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth…His tail is in reference to the dragon or Satan.

Look into the night time sky. Eventually, there will be literal darkness upon the earth.

Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not flash forth their light; the sun will be dark when it rises and the moon will not shed its light.

Ezekiel 32:7-8 “And when I extinguish you, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud and the moon will not give its light. All the shining lights in the heavens I will darken over you and will set darkness on your land,” Declares the Lord GOD.

There have been recorded incidents of meteors and falling star over the past few years. Recently in May 2016, we have seen events in Mexico and the northeast part of the United States. Are these events increasing? Or are we more aware because of people who have video recorded such events?

The chart from NASA and the American Meteor Society will speak for itself.

The trend is increasing. What we are seeing now is nothing.

Planet earth is going to get stoned in a major way from its Creator.

Blood Moon Tetrad, 2015

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 4, 2015 by paulthepoke

Joel 2:31 The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.

The blood moon tetrad has come and gone in September 2015. We are all still here. The world did not end. Jesus did not come.

bloodmoon

For the critic whose religion is science, this blog will use data provided by NASA. Assess from another point of view. Consider there is a being capable of creating these heavenly bodies. Is humanity the pinnacle of intellect? Consider the orbits of these heavenly bodies are ridiculously predictable and trustworthy…chance? We can calculate their positions in space and time: past, present, and future. Consider we were created with the ability to discern these things. Calculate the odds. Open your mind. These celestial events were created for this time in history with a specific purpose. For all who consider themselves as rational and thoughtful, consider the evidence on your scientific terms. As you see it, all of your linear logic is based on random chance and chaos coming together to form incomprehensible order.

The first time the blood moon tetrad and solar eclipse phenomena happened on God’s appointed holidays was during 32-33 AD (NASA). What we witnessed in 2015 (spring and fall) is exactly as it was in the sky and on the calendar (Hebrew and Gregorian) as it was when Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected.

https://paulthepoke.com/2015/04/19/unleavened-bread-nisan-15-saturday-33-ad-part-2/

There are some interesting facts to consider. This most recent phenomenon is the last for some time. The blood moon tetrad series does not occur on God’s appointed holidays until 2582-2583 AD. That is 568 years from now. (NASA).

http://bloodmoonscoming.com/

The blood moon tetrad series in conjunction with the solar eclipses does not occur again on God’s appointed holidays for roughly 1,000 years (NASA).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QXc6BdRlOQ

The 1,000 year gap from now, 2015, to the next occurrence (roughly 3015) is most interesting in light of Revelation 20:2-7. It is stated six (6) times. Jesus Christ’s kingdom on Earth is 1,000 years.

Of note, there are two more solar eclipses in the sequence. These are numbers three and four of the four consecutive solar eclipses. One is on the eve of the religious new year in the spring of 2016. The solar eclipse introduces God’s spring appointed holidays. The other is on the eve of the civil new year in the fall of 2016. The solar eclipse introduces God’s fall appointed holidays.

Why, in late June 2015, the Star of Bethlehem phenomenon in the sky?

https://paulthepoke.com/2015/06/30/trend-update-star-of-bethlehem-june-30-2015/

Why all of this now?

Day Four of Creation Week

Genesis 1:14… Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons

…let them be for signs and for seasons…

The Hebrew word for “signs” is ‘owth. It means: sign, signal, a distinguishing mark, banner, remembrance, miraculous sign, omen, warning; token, ensign, standard, miracle, proof (definition provided by Strong’s Concordance).

…let them be for signs and for seasons

The Hebrew word for “seasons” is mow`ed (singular); mow`edim (plural). It means: appointed place, appointed time, meeting; appointed time; sacred season, set feast, appointed season; appointed meeting; appointed sign or signal; tent of meeting (definition provided by Strong’s Concordance).

This was the eighth occurrence of the blood moon tetrad phenomenon on God’s appointed holidays. God stated He would use the heavens as a signal or sign.

At the least, the phenomena are a reminder of Christ and His work on the cross. The apostle Peter points this out in Acts 2. He is our payment for our penalty of sin.

If, this most recent blood moon tetrad was the “sign” of Joel 2:31 … we have been warned.

Revelation 8:8-11 Mountain Sized Meteor

Posted in Prophecy with tags , , , , , , on February 21, 2013 by paulthepoke

Revelation 8:8-11 The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed. The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.

These events occur during the trumpet judgments of Revelation. It is a little over a third of the way through the tribulation judgments. There appears to be two separate events noted in these four verses. One of them impacts the sea. The other impacts the land. Both are very destructive.

The first is the “great mountain”. It is burning with fire. In light of the recent meteor that struck Russia, this is easy to visualize. There were multiple sources of video that showed a meteor exploding in the sky and leaving a trail of fire and smoke. This great mountain slams into the sea. Recent measurements indicate a meteor can hit the atmosphere at approximately 33,000-40,000 miles per hour. Imagine the momentum of this object. It is a simple physics equation, mass X velocity. This would create a destructive tsunami of massive proportions. Imagine the sound percussions and damage from the sonic boom of an object that size and subsequent objects that break apart.

Look at the data of the size of the meteor that struck Russia. It was estimated to be approximately 55 feet wide and weighed 10,000 tons. Remember the zinc factory destruction that occurred from a fragment of this meteor? Consider all of the damage done by the relatively small meteor that affected rural Russia. Windows were broken from sound waves. The blast was estimated to be approximately 500 kilotons (data provided by NASA). Over 1,000 people were injured.

Think of the size of the asteroid that recently passed by Earth and missed the same day as the meteor that hit Russia. That asteroid was half the size of a football field.

Now consider the size of the object in Revelation 8:8. It is described as a “great mountain”. There are two words in the original Greek that describe the object. Oros is Greek for mountain. The adjective is mega in the Greek which means great, huge, large, or immense. We use “mega” in front of words in English if we want to express the enormity of something. This is a mega mountain! The devastation is significant. One third of sea life destroyed. Imagine the sight and the stench. One third of all ships destroyed.

The event in Russia was a starter kit.
