A Testimony. Part 2

Earthquakes, solar storms and volcanoes, oh, my!

Spaceweather.com is closer to the truth than they know:

"THE ACTION IN ICELAND: Sometimes both heaven and Earth erupt. Such was the case on April 4th when an outburst of auroras met an outburst of lava in southern Iceland:"

"Kristinn R. Kristinsson took the picture from a glacier overlooking Iceland's active Eyjafjallajökull volcano. The volcano erupted on March 20th for the first time in 190 years--and it has been spewing lava and attracting sightseers ever since. Even Top Gear is filming an episode there. On April 4th a solar wind gust hit Earth and ignited auroras almost directly above the lava flow. Kristinsson was in the right place at the right time to see the display. April 4th marked the beginning of a major solar wind storm, which is only now subsiding. The four-day event brought auroras to the lava fields of Iceland, created a kaleidoscopic display of moving color over Antarctica, and lured onlookers in Siberia outdoors..." www.spaceweather.com

Discovery.com reports on the solar storm buffeting earth this last week giving off those beautiful auroras such as the one in the above photo: "A blast of solar wind is pummeling Earth's magnetosphere, sparking the strongest geomagnetic storm so far this year. Though it registered a "7" on the 0-to-9 K-index scale of magnetic disturbances, the storm is expected to pass quickly." A seven out of nine. Hmmm, that's a strong storm. It is the strongest space storm we have had in three years. "The solar storm prompted NOAA to issue a Space Weather Advisory on Monday and gave astronauts aboard the International Space Station something to write home about." It hit earlier and harder than expected, too.

Well suffice to say that neither the sudden volcanic eruption in Iceland nor the hard-hitting solar storm were an unexpected event on God's calendar. "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, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. (Luke 21:25-26) (Below, Iceland Eyjafjallajokull volcano, NASA pic) People are asking (OK, betting) on when the next volcano will erupt, and which one it will be. "What Will Be The Next Volcano to Erupt?"  The fact that the Iceland volcano erupted so suddenly after 2000 years has drawn eyes to Italy, where Mount Etna and Vesuvius are rumbling ominously, and to volcanoes in general. It is startling when an Icelandic Volcano which has been dormant for 200 years has erupted causing a large fissure in a field of ice to form. The eruption near Eyjafjallajoekull glacier, 75 metres east of Reykjavik, began to erupt just over the weekend sending lava one hundred metres into the air and it is still erupting. The eruption meant caused Icelandic airspace to close with flights being diverted as well closing roads...."


The earth is shaking. People are noticing. Earthquakes are shaking people up as well. I wish they were waking people up here in America, but alas, though they ask "Are All These Earthquakes Normal?" they ask the wrong people. Therefore answer is unfortunate and distinctly unhelpful: "Folks who work at the United States Geological Survey Earthquake Center in Golden, Colo., don’t just track temblors, they also answer the public’s questions via phone and email. The number one question they’ve been getting lately: “Is this the end of the world?” according to Heidi Koontz, the center’s Public Affairs Specialist. News of four major quakes in as many months, in Haiti, Chile, Mexico and Indonesia, has prompted a tinge of panic in some who would otherwise consider these events pure coincidence. “I received a call from a psychiatrist who is getting an influx of patients who are really concerned about the end of days,” says Koontz, “and he wanted us to pinpoint science and provide him with links to science that would help allay the fears of some of his patients. He needed some hard facts and he said that that actually helped."

It is perceptive to ask if it is the end of the world. We were given signs to watch for and told it would happen. However, it is pointless to ask someone who does not have a biblical perspective, for the answer will be given on a basis absent of truth. No, these earthquakes are not normal.

The question was addressed by CNN too. Quake frequency normal, scientists say. "Yes, it seems as if there have been a lot of strong earthquakes this year. And no, it's not a signal that the planet is coming apart at the seams, seismologists say." Why, yes, it is that the planet is coming apart at the seams, Christian watchmen say. "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains." (Mark 13:8)

Forget asking the psychologist, the psychologist, and the geologist. Ask your questions but seek the answers in the Bible, and pray to Jesus to forgive your sins. It is the ONLY conversation that matters at this point. Repent!

  1. I'm glad to see someone telling the truth about recent earthquake activity and volcanic eruptions. I have been feeling inside that the frequency and intensity is different. As a Christian, I know what this means. Time is winding down. These are signals and signs to unbelievers by God, who loves them and wants their attention.

    I went online today to see what was being said about these topics. In the past, there was a multitude of articles connecting current events with the end times. As I searched today, there was little to nothing. Your article is one of a handful. Every article listed was stating that this is all normal. I find the shift in the article bases intriguing.

    Thank you for being a voice in the "this is normal" desert.

  2. Thank you so much anonymous! You might be interested in the following article I wrote the other day about CalTech's admission that in CA, at least, the EQ numbers are more than double than last year's already, and the year is only 1/4 over. I also get weary of the 'please move along, nothing to see here' attitude of the scientists, secular folk, and even many Christians. God is so loving, He is warning us mightily. I pray that many heed the warnings.

  3. lol @ crazy jesus freaks
    bible > science! of course!!

  4. Believing in the bible does not preclude one from studying, learning and knowing science. God made an orderly and astoundingly interesting scientific world, and we love studying it and also the universe. Yours is a fallacy that most secular people live under: that it is one OR the other; bible or science. Not for us, it isn't, it's both. Only for secular people is it one OR the other.

  5. Bring it on! Come LORD Jesus! Maybe now we will be more motivated to reach the lost. I feel it is approaching sooner than we think, within our lifetime??

  6. I'm not a Chirstian, but even I can see that there is something going on with the earth and even if you exclude the bibical signs, it wouldn't take a scientist to realize that the volcanoes, the earthquakes, and crazy weather, are just a prelude to some other huge possibly world wide diaster.

  7. what do you think is going on? I'm interested in you non-Christian's perspective on the ramped-up disasters.

  8. I do think that while probably not "rapture" I do think that the world is coming to an end, atleast an end of life as we know it.
    I was rasied in church, my father is a preacher and oddly enough revelations was one of my favorite book of the bible (I was a strange child). I just find it hard to believe (depending on which version you believe) that a god who is suppose to be loving and kind would put "his children" through so much.
    I believe there is more to the religon than the bible states, if that makes any sense. But I don't really want to debate weather one faith is right or wrong those debates will go on forever. If I wake up one morning and my kids have dissappeared, then I'll know that I was fatally wrong in my way of thinking.

    Ok back on topic, personally I think the earth is pissed with the years and years of misuse and is taking revenage. I do think that things are going to get much worse before they get better and think that we need to be bracing ourselves for it.

  10. i too like the book of revelations, but i do not agree with you Ginger i think the reason why you don't understand the bible is that god has not shown you yet

  11. Ginger, God IS loving and He saves us from what we put *ourselves* through. The basic issue is sin: man's sin and his sin nature which corrupts all things. And the gap between His holiness and our sinfulness, Jesus as the bridge to reach Him in heaven. We can debate all day but there is only ONE WAY to heaven, and that is through Jesus. He Himself said that there would be many who would not believe, and I hope that you don't end up being one of those.

    So if God is no good because he supposedly puts man through too much, then which god do you like? I'm not challenging, I'm sincerely asking. Buddha wasn't a god at all and claimed the key to happiness is there isn't one. And if there is no god, then all things are permissible. Do you want to live in a world like that? Vishnu perhaps? He demands sacrifices. Molech? He demands your children, live. Allah? He demands you kill infidels. Which god demands less but gives more than Jesus? None.

    What do you believe there is more to religion than the bible states? What else is there? I am really curious on this. Personally, I believe the entire Word is complete and all good plans and guidelines for living is in the bible, which was written by God through men. If you believe there is something more outside the bible, then it must have been written by men, who are not as smart as God and therefore anything extra will not be good nor helpful. That's why I stick with the bible only and not man's vain imaginings of "more to it."

    Since time immemorial, man has found it hard to believe that all you need to do is believe in the One He Has Sent. But that's it. Really.

    No, I disagree, the debates will *not* go on forever. God will end the age and you and all those who do not believe in Jesus's work on the cross to save you from your sin will face Him and be judged for that refusal.

    Pray for discernment between the false gods and the one True God, and clarity on His good and true work in Jesus, please?

  12. Ginger and Others: What many fail to understand is that God doesn't make the choice. He has given His creatures the most amazing gift of FREE WILL. When WE choose not to be His child, because of the way He has set things up, there is nothing He can do about that. We choose to be His child, or we choose not to. When choose not to, we choose death. So, you are right. A loving God would NOT condemn anyone to hell. That's a choice you make by choosing to live in your own will, instead of the Will of the Lord. ALSO ... please, READ the Bible. You cannot read the Bible and miss the truth. When you seek the truth in the Word with an honest and contrite heart, you will find TRUTH. It's not magical, but it is supernatural. ALSO ... people, people, it is REVELATION -- no 's' on the end. And, yes, we are in the last days. The greatest indication of this was the reinstatement of Israel as a nation, and the reclaiming of Jerusalem by the Jews in 1967. This is the most exciting time in history, if you are a believer. If you are not ... it is going to be horrible. Again ... YOU choose. Love & Peace.

  13. if it is gods will to not let his followers suffer and die then why does he let the most innocent die the most horrific deaths? I am not saying that there is or isnt a god; I am not saying that there is or isnt a heaven and hell. I am just asking one question that seems to stump every body that I ask. If god is so powerful and loves his children who read the bible and pray (and not just to act like they believe...)why does he let the most horrible acts take place? Every single day there are children around the world who die from starvation or abuse and neglect. Wars and diseases like aids. Where is god when all of that is taking place?

    Now for those of you that I have offended, like I said in the beginning -- I'm not saying that God does or doesnt exist. I just would like to know the logic behind letting innocent children die in the name of god (or allah or what ever god happens to be represented at the time). And for the one who says gods will isn't to be questioned then I say impeach that god and get another who will love and listen to his people instead of letting death and destruction take over.

    Again I am sorry if I offend anyone, but as you are entitled to you're opinions and beliefs I am entitled to question a force who won't or can't show himself and still expects people to believe and follow in the mist of mayhem.

  14. Let’ start with your premise” if it is God’s will that none suffer and die…”

    To perish means to die and be lost forever from the presence of God. God does NOT want that! But Everybody dies. Where you go after that is up to each person. “For it is appointed for all men to die once and then after this comes the judgment” (Hebrews 9:7).

    As for suffering, the main cause for the hardship and suffering we experience is that this world is an evil place where bad things happen. It is a sinful, fallen world. Remember, God created the world perfect. The earth was perfect, the animals were perfect, and Adam and Eve were perfect. No sickness, no death, no sin. It was their decision to sin that caused the meanness and sickness and starvation. We can also experience sickness and pain because of our unhealthy and sinful behavior.

    Why does He let the innocent suffer, like babies? None are innocent. No not one. (Romans 3:10) None of us are "innocent" when it comes to offending God with our rebelliousness and sins. Some are far more wicked than others. Babies seem innocent but they have a sin nature too, their first word is often “NO!” lol. We are all deserving of eternal damnation without exception, and that's where we'd all end up were it not for the sacrifices that Jesus made for us.

    Where is God when all the sickness and starvation is taking place? He sends the Spirit as Helper to us. He grieves with us. He makes all things work together for good to those who love God; Romans 8:28. He is here, mourning and waiting patiently until the judgment and then the renewal of the earth

    He HAS shown Himself. Many times “since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Romans 1:19-20. Then He sent Jesus. Jesus walked around the region doing miracles in front of people for years, teaching and healing and preaching. He did so much that John wrote that all the books of the world could not contain a record of all His miracles. Then God sent the Apostles to tell of Jesus and THEY did miracles and healings and resurrections in His name. He sent His bible, the mind of God written through the hand of man. We created the destruction through our sin. He will make all things new in the last day, and I hope you are there to enjoy it. All one needs to do to be there is be sorry or your sin and turn away from it, making Jesus whom you believe to be alive and working on this earth even now, your Lord.

    I am not offended that you wrote in. I am glad.

  15. The following statistics were gathered from the USGS website (back to 1980). Other resources were used for statistics prior to 1980:

    Number of Earthquakes Magnatude 8.0 or greater:
    1950-1959---3
    1960-1969---3
    1970-1979---3
    1980-1989---4
    1990-1999---6
    2000-2000---13

    Total number of deaths caused by earthquakes:
    1980-1989---58,880
    1990-1999---114,646
    2000-2009---471,012
    2010--------225,11

    These stats clearly show that the frequency and intensity are increasing. The death toll (SOULS) is the most shocking number. There should be no doubt, the Bible is true, the end is here.
    Are you ready?

  16. for all of those who are upset that God would allow suffering in their lives, maybe you should consider how much suffering Jesus went through to save you from death and hell, are you greater than Jesus that you should not see hardship and suffering, stop with the self pity and be thankful.
