Strange boom heard in GA, spiritual warfare ramping up?

There has been a spate of strange sky noises lately, reported from all around the world. I reported on some of them last year, a roundup is here.

People have been asking me if I am going to address the current spate of sky rumbles/sky quakes/ mysterious booms as they are variously known. I don't have much to say about them, and I can't really relate them to the bible because the bible does not specifically address them as a warning sign. However, they may indicate something related to the end times.

The noises are usually a low pitched hum that veritably drives the residents crazy, or a boom from the sky that people liken to a sonic boom. Sometimes they say it sounds like a clanking or a chain in the sky. In several incidents, they were hoaxes. When they occur for real, as in the case where it was so loud it caused car alarms to go off, the authorities receive dozens to hundreds of phone calls asking if there had been an earthquake. In most cases, the boom is not related to a military activity nor aeronautic exercise, not to a quake, and not to drilling or explosives. These things are checked out and the usual explanation is usually absent, leaving residents to wonder what is the cause of the noise. That's why they are termed mysterious. Someone dubbed them "Sounds of the Apocalypse" and I think that is the most apt thing about these noises.

At first, the sounds were being recorded and put up by citizens on Youtube. In those cases I think some were hoaxes. Then semi-credible news agencies started reporting on them, such as this one from UK Daily Mail-

"What's causing the mysterious sounds coming from the sky that are so loud they set off car alarms?"

After this more credible news outlets reported on them, albeit local ones:

Still no explanation for mysterious booms in Madison County
 And still another one heard over several states and accompanied by a fireball

A mysterious boom was heard today near Savannah GA.

Something shakes Southeast Georgia
Reports of loud boom, earth shaking reports come from 5 counties
It wasn't an earthquake that rattled windows and store shelves early, but residents across Southeast Georgia heard and felt something big Thursday morning. "My wife and I, we heard this loud noise -- this booming noise," said Officer Todd Rhodes of the Brunswick Police Department. "It was a noise that literally shook our home." When Rhodes got to work, he learned his 911 center was swamped with calls of people with similar reports. "Everyone was very concerned," Rhodes said. "There was some panic there because you know when you hear that noise as far-reaching as it was, and not only hearing it but feeling it, you want to know, 'What is this?'"

GEMA, Air Force confirm sonic boom heard
"Several people called WTOC Thursday morning saying they heard a loud boom and some even felt their house shake around 8:30 a.m. Ray Parker, the Emergency Management Director in McIntosh County, ruled out an earthquake. The Georgia Emergency Management Agency and the Air Force both confirm that what people heard was a sonic boom. Some Air Force planes were doing training exercises off the Georgia coast Thursday morning, when one may have gotten too close to land."

Maybe.

There is no doubt that strange booms are emanating from the sky. Enough people have heard them to make no doubt they really are happening. When hundreds of calls flood into a 911 call center, when agencies like GA Emergency Management Agency and Seismology offices and Police Authorities officials confirm it, you know they are happening. But what are they? Why are they being heard now?

I think of the veil, the veneer between us and the powers, principalities and dominions (Eph 1:21, Col 1:16; Eph 6:12) and I wonder, how thin is it? Elisha prayed to God for Him to give Elisha's servant a glimpse of the other side, and the servant's eyes were opened and he saw the multitudes of angels right there hovering and ready to do battle. (2 Kings 6:17). Are the two sides so close together that an occasional co-mingling occurs? Sounds leak from one to the other? I don't know of course, but I wonder about these things.

There is an angel big and strong enough to stand on the sun and loud enough to call to all the birds flying in the air inside out atmosphere:

"Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, "Come, assemble for the great supper of God," (Revelation 19:17).

There are angels big and strong enough to stand at the 4 compass points and hold back the wind:

"After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree." (Revelation 7:1).

Angels are strong and big. The fallen angels are strong and big too. They were once the good angels who served God after all, the same as the ones written about above.

Personally I believe the booms are either manifestations of spiritual warfare we happen to hear on this side of the veil, or the preparations God is making for imminent Tribulation judgments. Sort of like the bumps and shudders throughout a house when furniture is being moved around. Nothing that is happening on that side of the veil is happening accidentally or chaotically, of course, but as evil rises I picture the throes and feverish pitch of good angels fighting fallen angels, and the preparations for the climactic end season of man's time on earth.

This means that if you are not saved that you need to be, NOW. It means that if you have read this far,that  the Spirit is working in you toward repentance, and all you need to do is realize that your sins are crimes against a Just and Holy God, who sent His Son to die to pay for the penalty required to satisfy God's wrath over those crimes.

Jesus said of Himself,

"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd." (John 10:14-16)

You are welcome to the flock. The sheepfold is big enough for you. Your loving Shepherd wants to take care of you, longs to, in fact. He promises to deliver Jacob, His people:

“I will surely gather all of you, Jacob; I will surely bring together the remnant of Israel.
I will bring them together like sheep in a pen, like a flock in its pasture; the place will throng with people. (Micah 2:12)

He promises to deliver His Church people:

"Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent." (Luke 15:3-7)

If you do need to repent, do so soon, please. Jesus is coming. He is a fabulous Savior, the manifestation of Love itself. Be in Him, it is the safest and warmest and best place to be in the entire universe. Blessings to you all.

  1. I follow your blog every day and look forward to it. I've visited MANY end time websites and blogs and I glorify God for your faithfulness to the scriptures! In thinking about these sounds one scripture comes to mind and it's Romans 8:22. "We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time". I've wandered if, just as a woman's cries get louder as the birth gets closer, the earth's groaning just gets more intense as well. All of creation bearing the burden of sin! Do you think this verse could be referring to these unusual sounds?

  2. Never a dull moment when looking into the mysteries of our Heavenly Father. Dangerous time to be alive but also very exciting. Our life (when living in the center of God's will) is truly a grand adventure. All good adventures and journeys (at least the ones I like to read about) are filled with dangers, heartbreaks, mysteries, love, hate, redemtion, etc.....

    And when living in sin I used to think life was boring. Thank you Jesus for melting my heart and opening my eyes.

    Keep you eyes on the prize everyone.

    Have a blessed and wonderful weekend Elizabeth!

    ps. scary indepth article on data collection and our government watching us.

    After reading that I had to keep in mind that God is ultimately in control. And if He is for us, who can possible stand against us.

  3. AmyJ,

    Absolutely! That's a good thought. I don't know what the creation sounds like when it's groaning, nor how a world enduring labor pains would sound either, but these strange sounds cold definitely be that. Your comment brings to mind the verse in Genesis, when Cain killed Abel, God said "The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground." (Genesis 4:10b). Also Revelation 18:5 where God says of Babylon, "for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes."

    Not that the sins actually piled up but have become so enormous and so frequent that they consume the attention of God, and the ground is groaning under their weight. Metaphorically speaking. Or supernaturally speaking...

  4. Mark, Amen. These are exciting but dangerous times for sure. I am always glad to have a reminder that God is in control and no one or nothing can stand against us. Sometimes I get upset at all the things happening, but then I remember that things are not out of control, but actually are occurring in an orderly precision on time and on schedule, just as God planned it.

    I'll check out the link after work tonight. Thanks again.

  5. I think that the reverse is true of the old question of "If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it does it make a noise"? Of coarse it does, if an object strikes another it always makes a noise. So, just because nobody saw or knew the cause of the noise, does not mean that it wasn't heard. Thank you for not going too far with this because it is easy to speculate. And, just because someone can come up with an explanation that is plausible does not mean that it is true until proven false. It just means that it is unexplained. We know from scripture that there will be lying signs and wonders around on the earth to deceive and even if possible the elect. Of all the things I have seen personally and things that I have seen on the internet, which can be fabricated by the way, just look at the advancements that Hollywood has made in the film making industry around Special Effects. They can make something that never happened look very real. Does there seem to be a direction that that industry want to go in? Since the beginning of time, Satan has been conditioning people to receive him as god and redirect their worship to himself. Remember what happened when Orson Wells aired on the radio his novel War of the Worlds? Widespread panic. It was just a show, made to sound real and there were some who actually believed it and committed suicide.

  6. Do you also think the sounds could be effects of what's supposedly happening with the earth's magnetic fields (supposedly reversing). We know we are living in strange, dark days so I think it could be spiritual. Your reference to the magnitude and power of angels and demons is something I sometimes forget about. It's scary to think about.

    Wow! Just imagine what terrible sounds might be heard when the battle in the heavens occurs and Satan is thrown to earth.

    I have a question about something I've been pondering a bit about (I make sure not to focus on it too much though). We heard of The Prince of Persia in Daniel who is obviously a very powerful and high ranking demon. Do you think it's the demon that is at work today in Iran? I mean look at what Iran has become since the revolution in the 70's. The hate the government has for Israel is mindblowing!

    I try to thank God everyday for His physical and spiritual protection over all of us. It's very easy to take for granted if you don't realize what's going on.

  7. Hi Elizabeth, I shared this post on my FB profile and this is the comment I posted. I hope people pay attention to it. I don´t like to scare people but I always warn people of the consequences of rejecting the offer of pardon and eternal life.

    This has been on my heart lately more than ever and I devote the most part of my life talking to people about Jesus and their need for repentance and of a savior.

    We know the sound of a hurricane, we know the sound of an earthquake, God can make his presence know in intelligible sounds to the human brain or speak through the forces of natures through sounds waves that are not decoded as organized language by the human brain, but nevertheless is an audible manifestation of some sort.

    The unbeliever will not believe that it could be related to some invisible spiritual happening in another dimension, but we believers whose ears, eyes and hearts are attuned to our Creator and Lord can see and hear it coming and it is our duty to persevere even as we are reviled by scoffers and warn the ones listening to us.

    We have to heed the instructions of Jude 20 to the end. Snatch others from the fire and save them speaks to me of Sodom and Gomorrah and smel like burning urgency.

    Something strange happening here and we better pay attention to it. Warnings are good when they make noise, but watch out when the silence is eery, that´s just before the big earthquake.

    When the archer bends the bow, you do not hear the sound of the arrow being drawn back into firing position, you might think everything is well, but once it is released, it goes right for the heart and God never misses the mark. By the time we hear the arrow hissing throught the air, it is too late.

    "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise as some understand slowness. He is patient with you not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance" II Peter 2:9. Have a blessed week-end, my sister. Jean-Louis.

  8. Interesting take on these events. Never thought of it that way. Least as good as anything else I've heard on it.

  9. You may never have anyone come out and tell you. You will have to look and make determinations yourself, or not.

    Yet there are many clues.

    For one, huge explosions in the skies around the world, often accompanied by a 'flash of light', sometimes damaging homes. Explosions like that indicates a chemical reaction, which means...chemicals. What chemicals, and why are they in the atmosphere around the planet NOW, just as the waters are heating up? Well, in Earth's history, hotter waters leads to hydrogen sulfide and methane eruptions. Nothing else really explains those gigantic atmospheric explosions.

    Secondly, for the first time in human history, a major metropolitan city was told to shelter-in-place because of hydrogen sulfide (Kuwait City).

    Thirdly, there have been many incidents where 'piles of scrap iron' have burst into flame, on cargo ships, in junkyards, etc. Only hydrogen sulfide emissions would explain that. Even methane wouldn't explain THAT.

    Fourth, hydrogen sulfide was detected in the air in Southern California, and in the ground in Canada, and in a library in Ohio (infiltrated the library via contaminated outside water).

    Fifth, there have been a number of inexplicable events that involve sudden-onset neurological afflictions, like the face-eater incident, the children experiencing 'Tourette's-like' twitching after playing basketball OUTSIDE, younger people in Australia experiencing Parkinson's-LIKE twitching and jerking, 'nodding disease' in Uganda and more. Hydrogen sulfide is neurotoxic and if the oceans are emitting it (which they are), then you'd expect to see that sort of effect spreading through human population, and we are.

    Sixth, there have been many sudden-unconsciousness events: 22 Houston students dropped to the ground, strange smell mentioned, outside. 120 Cambodian students suddenly lost consciousness, outside. 60-ish people in Jamaica smelled something foul and many suddenly lost consciousness, outside. 500+ runners mysteriously sickened in the Las Vegas marathon, outside, water and food eliminated as cause, which leaves...the air.

    Seventh, hydrogen sulfide doesn't remain in the body long. After 6-8 hours - from exposure - you aren't going to detect it. Most bodies aren't even found that soon and those that are are rarely autopsied that quickly, and for those very very few that are, the docs still aren't gonna be looking for it. They may see a brain hemorrhage or a heart attack and...good enough for them.

    Eighth, Andrew Breitbart. Dropped dead, outside, on the coast in Los Angeles. The coroner actually DID get to his autopsy quickly. What happened? The coroner sickened and died. Victims of hydrogen sulfide poisoning, if they're 'fresh', may have residual gas in clothes or lungs that can kill a person with secondary exposure. Seems likely that's what happened in that case. So maybe that coroner would have told us it was hydrogen sulfide...but he died too.

    There are lots of clues if you keep your eyes open. These I've listed are by no means the only clues. And any one thing could be a fluke (except the combusting rusted iron, no other explanation for that). Taken all together? Well, I find it convincing. Whether you do or don't is up to you, of course. Reality is all that matters though, and we're gonna see what we're gonna see.

  10. The waters of the Earth are now pluming suffocating methane and deadly hydrogen sulfide, both highly flammable gases.

    Ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that pre-date oxygen-using life are reassuming dominance on the Earth. As part of their life cycle these bacteria and archaea emit hydrogen sulfide. As a consequence, the oceans, lakes and seas have begun to plume increasing amounts of hydrogen sulfide into the atmosphere. This is an ancient extinction event. Hydrogen sulfide is the likely culprit in many if not all previous planetary extinction events.

    Hydrogen sulfide is a deadly broad-spectrum poison. It is lethal to humans with one or two breaths in concentrations of 1 part per thousand. In other words, if the air you breathe is 99.9% clean and 0.1% hydrogen sulfide then you're going to be dead after one or two breaths. It is also a water-soluble gas and will contaminate water. It is a heavier-than-air gas so it will tend to seek out low-lying areas such as rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, valleys, ravines, ditches, quays, bays, gorges, canyons, basements, underground facilities, etc. It is also highly flammable and is reactive with numerous substances, including (but not limited to) copper, rusty iron/steel, nitric acid, and sodium hydroxide.

    At very low concentrations hydrogen sulfide is said to smell like 'rotten eggs'. However, you should not count on being able to smell it at any concentration beyond the trivial as it paralyzes the olfactory sense and if you can smell it at all then the smell will fade rapidly. That does not mean the danger is gone! At medium-high concentrations some people say that it can smell 'flowery' or 'sickeningly sweet'. I have smelled that odor myself, when a septic worker had a sewer lid open and was pumping excrement into the sewer from porta-potties. (I got as far away from there as I could before I took another breath.)

    Though it is a heavier-than-air gas, hydrogen sulfide is nevertheless being blown up into the upper atmosphere sometimes, where it is reacting away both the ozone layer and hydroxyl radicals. The loss of the ozone layer will probably eventually result in lethal levels of UV radiation baking the surface of the planet. The rising UV levels are already damaging DNA and RNA and causing increases in the frequency of genetic defects such as albinism and polycephaly (two-headedness) and genetic chimeras.

    The loss of hydroxyl radicals means that atmospheric methane will last considerably longer in the atmosphere than it normally would, since hydroxyl radicals would normally mitigate the methane. Which brings me to...

    Methane clathrate deposits in the oceans around the world are now dissociating (melting), flooding the atmosphere with increasing amounts of methane, which is a highly flammable odorless gas. Natural gas is primarily comprised of methane. The methane releases alone would probably be enough to eradicate human civilization from the surface of the Earth. This is called the Clathrate Gun Hypothesis.

    We are getting both hydrogen sulfide releases and methane releases. This is likely the same scenario that killed off most life on Earth during the Permian-Triassic Extinction Event, also called 'The Great Dying'.
