Professor accuses U.S. of starting Ebola outbreak with bio-terrorism experiments gone wrong

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease

It's no wonder that conspiracy theories develop and spread when you have notable people providing the building blocks to those conspiracies.  The Ebola outbreak is no exception;  An award winning Texas scientist gave a speech 8 years ago to a scientific symposium advocating for the extermination of 90 percent of humanity with an airborne Ebola virus.  Fast forward 8 years and you have another tenured American University professor accusing the American government of just that - releasing a deadly form of Ebola into West Africa with some estimates suggesting millions of infected before all is said and done.

Such theories are pretty hard to fathom and believe, but given all the recent outbreaks of various diseases all across the globe all happening at the very same time, and you have to wonder if maybe there is some basis to the conspiracies.  Keep in mind that the Georgia Guide Stones advocate for a reduced global population to 500 million people.  That equates to 93 percent of the current world population of 7.2 billions being wiped out, (there's your 90%).  Some elite group is certainly behind the Guide Stones and the message thereof and is likely gleefully watching the news with regards to all these disease outbreaks.

All we can say for sure is Jesus warned that their would be pestilences, (disease outbreaks), in various places right before his coming.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

Professor accuses U.S. of starting Ebola outbreak with bio-terrorism experiments gone wrong
Ebola is the result of bio-terrorism experiments gone wrong, according to a tenured professor at Delaware State University. In an article published in a major Liberian newspaper, The Daily Observer, the Liberian-born Cyril Broderick claims the epidemic is the result of work done by the U.S. Department of Defence, among others. His remarks can only make the task of those fighting to control the outbreak harder, as they feed into the superstition and misinformation circulating about Ebola and how it is spread. While some readers commenting on the article were critical, the number who praised it was telling.

Scientist calls for death to humanity - April 2006
An award-winning Texas scientist was given a standing ovation after he advocated the extermination of 90 per cent of the Earth's population by an airborne Ebola virus. The University of Texas evolutionary ecologist, Dr Eric R. Pianka, was addressing the 109th meeting of the Texas Academy of Science at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, in early March, after the academy had named him 2006 Distinguished Texas Scientist. He argued that the sharp increase in the human population since the onset of industrialisation was destroying the planet.
He warned that Earth would not survive unless its human population was reduced to a tenth of its present number. He then offered drastic solutions, accompanying his remarks with a slide depicting the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. War and famine were insufficient for solving global overpopulation, he explained. Instead, disease was far more efficient and swift. At this point, Pianka displayed a slide showing rows of human skulls. AIDS took too long to kill people off, he explained. His preferred method of exterminating over five billion human beings was via airborne Ebola (Ebola Reston), because it is both highly lethal and kills its victims in days rather than years.

Fears for schoolchildren exposed to first Ebola patient diagnosed on US soil as up to twelve Americans could have deadly virus
Up to 12 people could be infected with Ebola including five children, it was revealed today, as health officials scramble to contain the infection after a first patient was diagnosed with the deadly virus on U.S. soil. The family of the male sufferer, who arrived in Texas from Liberia on September 20, are being considered at risk along with EMTs who transported him to hospital. The man is in a 'serious but stable condition' and has been quarantined since Sunday. He is 'awake, talking and asking for food', doctors said today. However there are fears of the disease spreading because the man was in the U.S. for almost a week before being isolated. The patient showed no symptoms of the disease during his journey - which also included a stop en route in Brussels, Belgium -  but began to develop signs on September 24. 

New mosquito-borne virus spreads in Latin America
An excruciating mosquito-borne illness that arrived less than a year ago in the Americas is raging across the region, leaping from the Caribbean to the Central and South American mainland, and infecting more than 1 million people. Some cases already have emerged in the United States. While the disease, called chikungunya, usually is not fatal, the epidemic has overwhelmed hospitals, cut economic productivity and caused its sufferers days of pain and misery. And the count of victims is soaring. In El Salvador, health officials report nearly 30,000 suspected cases, up from 2,300 at the beginning of August, and hospitals are filled with people with the telltale signs of the illness, including joint pain so severe it can be hard to walk. "The pain is unbelievable," said Catalino Castillo, a 39-year-old seeking treatment at a San Salvador hospital. "It's been 10 days and it won't let up."

The Economic Miracle of Israel's Natural Gas Fields

Prophecy Sign:  Israel will be blessed with new found riches in the last days

It must be the last days, because God is now pouring out his blessings to a restored Israel from the hidden treasures that have been stored away for a time such as this.

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3 NIV

The Economic Miracle of Israel's Natural Gas Fields
Thirty-five trillion cubic feet of gas worth some USD $500 billion has been found in Israel’s “economic waters,” with the Leviathan field being by far the largest. To give some kind of reference point, Israel’s national expenditures for 2013 totaled USD $114 billion. More importantly than covering the national budget is the fact that, for the first time in history, Israel has the opportunity to become energy-independent, as well as a major exporter of natural gas. Theoretically, these natural gas reserves have the potential to transform Israel’s economy. Indeed, experts say that this gas alone can shave 25 percent off Israel’s annual national budget for the next 25 years.
A find of such epic proportions should elicit great excitement. Instead, it is buried beneath political apprehension and narrow financial interests. Ever since the Leviathan discovery, Turkey and Lebanon have challenged Israel’s right to the reserves. Threats emanating from both countries have forced Israel to spend upwards of USD $1.3 billion to secure its claims. This diplomatic tension could be one reason the Israeli government has curbed its enthusiasm over the find.

Isis 'just one mile from Baghdad' as al-Qaeda fighters join forces against Syria air strikes

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East Wars

Throughout the pages of the Old Testament there are prophesies of the last days which warn of war in the Middle-East at the time of the end.  All of these passages tell of the enemies of Israel gathering together to attempt to wipe Israel off the map.  From Libya to Turkey, from Ethiopia to Syria, from Egypt to Iran, nearly every North African and Mid-East nation of Islamic persuasion, (save for perhaps Jordan), will have a hate on for Israel and will attack.

What we don't know for sure is just how many battles there will be, (Psalm 83, Gog/Magog, Isaiah 17, Obadiah 1, Jeremiah 49), and the timing of those battles.  Some suggest that the Islamic nations will gather together as the armies of Gog/Magog and attack Israel prior to the Tribulation while others believe that this will not happen until the very end and is in fact the battle of Armageddon.

How all of this plays out is only known to God himself.  However, we that are watching the signs can now see the coming together of much of the Islamic world into alliances, (some Shiite, some Sunni), and we can witness the growing hatred towards the Jewish state and the desire of these alliances to rid the world of the Jews, once and for all.  The bible tells us that this will never happen!!

I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.  Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle. Zechariah 14:2-3 NIV

Isis 'just one mile from Baghdad' as al-Qaeda fighters join forces against Syria air strikes
Isis fighters are reportedly just one mile away from Baghdad as reports emerge of al-Qaeda militants bolstering their ranks in Syria. According to the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, Isis was approaching the Iraqi capital on Monday morning. "The Islamic State are now less than 2km away from entering Baghdad," a spokesperson said. "They said it could never happen and now it almost has. Obama says he overestimated what the Iraqi Army could do. Well you only need to be here a very short while to know they can do very very little."

ISIS+Al-Nusra Front? Islamists reportedly join forces, new threat against West issued
Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front has issued a new threatening audio message featuring its leader warning the West “will pay the heaviest price” for its actions. The Syrian group is reportedly now joining up with the estranged Islamic State militants. The leader of Syria’s most prominent terrorist group, Abu Mohamad al-Golani, in denouncing the US-led air strike campaign, has urged Westerners everywhere to do the same “by standing against the decisions of your rulers,” otherwise bloodshed would be brought to their soil.

Islamic State and Nusra Front move toward alliance amid coalition strikes in Syria
Islamic State is moving toward an alliance with the Nusra Front, the largest Al-Qaida affiliate in Syria, as a U.S.-led coalition continues strikes against IS positions in the northeastern part of the country. Nusra Front, or Jabhat al-Nusra, has been facing mounting pressure from its own members to reconcile with its rival and form a united front against the air strikes, which began in Syria last week, after the American fight against Islamic State began in Iraq in August. Joining forces with IS would require Nusra Front members to pledge loyalty to the group, which has declared a caliphate in territory it controls in those countries. This would effectively put an end to the Nusra Front, fighters in the group say.

Islamic State militant in Vice interview: We won't stop until we crucify Netanyahu
An Islamic State militant vowed in a video interview with Vice News that the group will not stop fighting until they crucify Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "When we crucify Benjamin Netanyahu for his war crimes, maybe, maybe that's when we'll stop," the militant, purportedly the 21-year-old Somali-Canadian Abu Usamah Somali, told Vice News founder Shane Smith via a video link from Iraq.

Mass default looms as world sinks beneath a sea of debt

Prophecy Sign:  The coming economic collapse, (and reset)

All the economic signs seem to be shaping up for yet another great market tumble.  You may have heard of the 7 year cycle of the Shemitah.  The coming year of 2015 marks another Shemitah.  The previous Shemitahs of 2008, (market collapse), and 2001, (9-11 and market collapse), speak for themselves and may be harbingers of something coming of equal of worse proportions for 2015. Certainly the following reports can be considered signs of warnings.

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you.  Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.  Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. James 5:1-3 NIV

Mass default looms as world sinks beneath a sea of debt
As if the fast degenerating geo-political situation isn’t bad enough, here’s another lorry load of concerns to add to the pile. The UK and US economies may be on the mend at last, but that’s not the pattern elsewhere. On a global level, growth is being steadily drowned under a rising tide of debt, threatening renewed financial crisis, a continued squeeze to living standards, and eventual mass default.
Contrary to widely held assumptions, the world has not yet begun to de-lever. In fact global debt-to-GDP – public and private non financial debt - is still growing, breaking new highs by the month. There was a brief pause at the height of the crisis, but then the rise in the global debt-GDP ratio resumed, reaching nearly 220c of global GDP over the past year. Much of the more recent growth in this headline figure has been driven by China, which in response to the crisis, unleashed a massive expansion in credit.

Stocks head for worst quarter since euro crisis, dollar soars
A new trough in euro zone inflation pushed the euro to a two-year low on Tuesday, leaving the dollar on course for its biggest quarterly gain in six years and world stocks facing their largest drop since the peak of the euro crisis. Falling food and energy prices saw euro zone inflation slow to 0.3 percent this month, piling the pressure on the European Central Bank to make clear when it meets Thursday that it is ready to take more preventative action. World markets had already been in a hesitant mood as investors wondered what China's response would be to civil unrest in Hong Kong, and as the dollar's strength dominated the end of what has been a choppy third quarter.

The U.S. Government Is Borrowing About 8 Trillion Dollars A Year
I know that headline sounds completely outrageous.  But it is actually true.  The U.S. government is borrowing about 8 trillion dollars a year, and you are about to see the hard numbers that prove this.  When discussing the national debt, most people tend to only focus on the amount that it increases each 12 months.  And as I wrote about recently, the U.S. national debt has increased by more than a trillion dollars in fiscal year 2014.  But that does not count the huge amounts of U.S. Treasury securities that the federal government must redeem each year.  When these debt instruments hit their maturity date, the U.S. government must pay them off.  This is done by borrowing more money to pay off the previous debts.  

Mammoth earthquake swarm is the largest in nearly a decade

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Earthquake/Volcanic activity 

It certainly seems that a great many previously dormant volcanoes and previously quite seismic faults are all showing signs of renewed life.  It's almost a script from a Hollywood movie, (in fact it was - the movie 2012).  But there is a script far more believable than any Hollywood production that warns of cataclysmic global shaking of the world.  That script is the bible and throughout the pages are warnings of what is to come during the great and terrible day of the Lord, (The Great Tribulation).

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

Mammoth earthquake swarm is the largest in nearly a decade
More than 600 small earthquakes have rattled the Mammoth Lakes region in less than 36 hours as ripple effects continued across one of the most seismically active volcanic regions in California, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The swarm of quakes — ranging from magnitude 1.0 to 3.8 — began just before 5 a.m. Thursday, according to the USGS. “This is one of the largest earthquake swarms we’ve seen in the past decade or so,” said David Shelly, a USGS research seismologist who has been studying the volcanic system near Mammoth Lakes. “We’ll be tracking it closely.”

Large earthquake swarm rattles Long Valley caldera, California U.S.
A large earthquake swarm is currently underway in Long Valley caldera, Mammoth Lake region of California U.S., east of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The swarm started on Thursday, September 25, 2014, and it is one of the largest earthquake swarms in this region in the past decade or so.  By Monday, September 29, USGS recorded more than 1 100 small scale earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 0.1 to 3.5 on the Richter scale.  According to USGS seismologist David Shelley, earthquake swarms in the area known at the Long Valley caldera are not uncommon. The last such swarm occurred in July 2014, when about 200 earthquakes of magnitude 2.7 or smaller struck the region. 

Atheists, Baptists and Baha'i come together to tackle climate change

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global false religious system

The real message behind the climate change debate has slowly been trickling out;  It's not about saving the planet from warming or cooling, but about driving the world together to bring about both a New World economic/political order and a global ecumenical religious order.  The article below says it all;  Various world religions and "strands of society" all unifying together for the purpose of changing the world.

Meanwhile, if you happen to be paying attention you will continue to find reports indicating just what a sham the global climate change hypothesis is.  The most recent damning evidence is that of Australian meteorologists massaging the data to give the appearance of a warming trend, (when no such trend exists).  It's almost as though the world has come to worship the created things rather than the creator of things.  That is the new religion of the world.

They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Romans 1:25 NIV

Atheists, Baptists and Baha'i come together to tackle climate change
The world has felt like a depressing place recently with conflict and slaughter on our screens from Iraq, Syria and Gaza. Yet standing among 400,000 people in New York on Sunday I was filled with a sense of profound hope for the world. I was in the Big Apple to take part in the largest ever mass mobilisation to raise awareness about climate change and attend the UN Climate Summit of world leaders taking place today. Standing among the throng of people in New York, as well as the hundreds of thousands of others around the world (including 40,000 in London), I was struck by what a unifying power a common enemy can be. On Sunday, not only were there groups of Methodists and Baptists rubbing shoulders with Catholics and Presbyterians, there were Christians marching with Muslims, Jews, Pagans, Atheists and Baha'i. Anti-capitalist protesters stood alongside 'Concerned Moms for the Climate', doctors, firemen and vegans held banners next to indigenous people and victims of Hurricane Katrina. Almost every conceivable strand of society was represented in the huge column of humanity which snaked its way through the high rise blocks of Manhattan.

Australian Meteorologists Caught Fudging Numbers
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (ABM) was recently forced to admit it alters the temperatures recorded at almost all the official weather stations in Australia. The ABM came clean on its temperature fiddling largely because of the fierce scrutiny of Graham Lloyd, environment editor for The Australian and The Weekend Australian, who published a series of articles on the ABM’s number-fudging. Using a process it calls homogenization, ABM has replaced actual temperature measurements with massaged numbers. 
Almost all the alterations resulted in higher temperatures being reported for the present and lower numbers for the past--with the higher numbers being used to demonstrate a historical warming trend--than the numbers that were actually recorded. Downward homogenizations in recent years were rare. In some areas, downward temperature trends measured over time showed a significantly increased temperature trend after homogenization. The difference between actually measured temperatures and homogenized temperatures topped 4 degrees Celsius over certain periods at some measuring stations.

Biometric ID Tightens the Rationing Strings on Venezuelans

Prophecy Sign:  The coming "Mark of the Beast" identification system

The new Venezuelan biometric buy and sell program, and the Thailand GPS tracking ID are the proverbial "canary in the coal mine" scenarios.  Try out these new systems on small test cases before launching such systems world wide. Prophecy watchers need to keep a close eye on both Venezuela and Thailand with the following passage of scripture in mind:

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,  so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

Biometric ID Tightens the Rationing Strings on Venezuelans
The Chavista war on shortages and the black market is heating up. Their two latest measures for Venezuela are point-of-sale biometric scanners and a tightened, centralized distribution system for domestic transportation. Andrés Eloy Méndez, superintendent for fair prices, has declared that the most notorious of the two will be in force from November 30. All food-related supply chains, private and public, will have to be equipped with biometric technology capable of recognizing fingerprints, to impede consumers from buying more than what the regime considers adequate. “All supermarkets and department stores in the country must have biometric readers … for the control of the quantity of products purchased … a fairer distribution and a cut in smuggling [will be achieved],” Méndez declared during an inspection he personally conducted on Wednesday at Makro, a chain of department stores.

Thailand Considers Tracking Tourists With GPS After Banning Orwell’s 1984
Thailand, which began arresting citizens last summer for reading copies of George Orwell’s 1984, is now considering tracking tourists with GPS devices. Thailand’s Tourism and Sports Minister, Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, said the government is working with hotels and resorts to assign ID wristbands, including serial numbers, to tourists and future plans include GPS tracking. “The next step would be some sort of electronic tracking device but this has not yet been discussed in detail,” she told Reuters. Kobkarn did admit, however, that the government was already encountering resistance against the initial wristband phase of the tracking program.

Muslim Terrorists Kill More than One Thousand Christians in One Bloody Day

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Christian persecution and marginaliztion

Two kinds of Christian persecution exist in the world today;  The first type makes the news as thousands of Christians are driven from their homes at the point of a sword and rifle, with many ultimately paying for their faith with their very own lives.  The second type simply attempts to drive Christianity out of the public form, (you can continue to worship your God, but do so behind the walls of your building and don't bother coming out to spread your message in public).

Whatever means Satan uses, his goal is to eradicate the gospel message and to eliminate the influence of Christians within their respective societies.  These means of persecution will only get worse as we near the very end of the end.

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. Matthew 24:9 NIV


Muslim Terrorists Kill More than One Thousand Christians in One Bloody Day
The Islamic terrorist organization Boko Haram has declared a new Islamic caliphate in northeaster Nigeria, modeled after the caliphate being created by ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Because of the sheer monstrosity of Boko Haram, tens of thousands of people – Christians in particular – are fleeing the region. Catholic Bishop  Oliver Dashe Doeme of Maiduguri says, “in areas whereBoko Haram is active Christians are fleeing by the thousands. ” He reported that at least 90,000 Catholics are now displaced by the Islamist rebels who are challenging the sovereignty of the Nigerian government. 
According to Boko Haram's own video, Abubakar Shekau claims he killed 1,000 Christians on that day. This has not been reported in the media as far as we can tell but is contained in his YouTube statement. We are investigating this but since he controls the town it is impossible to tell. If true this is the worst single day massacre of Christians anywhere in contemporary history.”

Iraq crisis: 'Every single Christian wants to leave'
Christians in the Nineveh region of northern Iraq are unable to celebrate communion for the first time in two millennia, after Islamic State militants captured the area and took over the churches. Canon Andrew White, vicar of the only Anglican church in Iraq, told the Telegraph that Isil have set up offices in the churches and have replaced crosses with the militant group's black flag. "Last week there was no communion in Nineveh for the first time in 2,000 years," he said. "All [the churches] are closed, all their people have run away. It is so sad." Many Christians moved from the Iraqi capital to Mosul and Nineveh in the north of the country following bloody sectarian killings and other violence after the 2003 US-led invasion. Now an estimated 200,000 Christians have been forced to flee their homes once again after Isil swept through their villages this summer, demanding that they convert to Islam, pay taxes for being Christians or face death.

Baghdad Priest: ‘Christianity Could Be at an End Here’
The Rev. Andrew White, vicar of St. George’s Anglican Church in Baghdad, said Tuesday that he believes Christianity may be at an end in Iraq. “The future’s very bleak,” Father White said in an interview with CNSNews.com. “For the first time, I’ve had to consider the very real fact that Christianity could be at an end here.”

CDC Predicts As Many As 1.4 Million Ebola Cases by Early 2015

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease

There seems to be no end to the Ebola pandemic in West Africa.  The horrible events now playing out in nations such as Liberia and Sierra Leone are but a glimpse of what will transpire during the darkest days of the coming Tribulation.

Ebola is not the only disease in the news these days as pestilence outbreaks are occurring across North and Central America as well as the Caribbean.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

CDC Predicts As Many As 1.4 Million Ebola Cases by Early 2015
A new and particularly grim CDC projection estimates that Ebola cases in western Africa could easily breach the million mark in just four months. The agency warned that without an effective intervention or a slowdown in the transmission of the virus, the world's biggest outbreak on record could extend from 550,000 to as many as 1.4 million cases by January 20. 

The Pure Hell At The Heart Of The Ebola Pandemic In Africa Could Soon Be Coming To America
Did you know that the number of Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone is approximately doubling every 20 days?  People are dropping dead in the streets, large numbers of bodies are being dumped into the rivers, and gravediggers can hardly keep up with the the number of corpses that are being delivered to the cemeteries.  As you read this, life is pure hell in many areas of West Africa, and now the CDC is warning that things may get far, far worse in the very near future.  According to the CDC, the number of Ebola cases could potentially soar to 1.4 million by the end of January.  Of course the CDC says that this is a "worst-case scenario", but for our health officials to even suggest that such a huge number is possible is quite chilling.  We are now being told that the fatality rate for this Ebola outbreak has risen to 71 percent, and so most of the "cases" will eventually turn into deaths.  If we do eventually see 1.4 million cases of Ebola in West Africa, it is incredibly naive to think that it will not spread to other parts of the globe as well.

Governments Building Ebola Detention Camps to Quarantine the Infected: “Community Care Centers”
Many now believe that it is only a matter of time before cases of Ebola are detected in other parts of the world. And if what’s happening in Africa is any guide, then we can expect a widespread, heavily militarized response by officials in the West, especially in the United States. In Sierra Leone the military is doing house-to-house searches looking for anyone who may be infected with Ebola or showing similar symptoms. A similar plan is being put into place in Liberia, where the World Health Organization is rapidly establishing “Community Care Centers,” where those infected with the disease will be detained and quarantined:

False Christs Arising Worldwide Claiming to Be Second Coming of Jesus

Prophecy Sign:  False Christs

Yes indeed, false Christs and false teachers are all over the place in this world of ours, deceiving many, just as Jesus warned would happen in the last days.

Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you.  For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Matthew 24:4,5,24 NIV

False Christs Arising Worldwide Claiming to Be Second Coming of Jesus
A number of false Christs have been arising in various nations worldwide, claiming to be the second coming of Jesus. While many are following these self-proclaimed Messiahs, some are speaking out against their cults, being mindful of Christ’s words in Matthew 24:5, “For many shall come in My name, saying, ‘I am Christ,’ and shall deceive many

20,000 earthquakes in one month

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes and volcanoes in diverse places

In this past week alone there has been several major earthquakes along the Pacific Ring of Fire, with earthquakes rumbling to life.  Can you imagine a time when the earth will begin to literally tear itself apart?  Perhaps not, but prophecy warns of just that during the latter half of the Tribulation.

People will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from the fearful presence of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. Isaiah 2:19 NIV

Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. Revelation 16:18 & 20 NIV

20,000 earthquakes in one month
Tuesday marks one month since a record wave of seismic activity started at and around the volcano of Bardarbunga. At least 20,000 earthquakes struck the area in that period, according to estimates from the Icelandic Met Office. 186 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0-3.9 were detected. 43 quakes were of magnitude 4.0-4.9, most of them at Bardarbunga's caldera. A total of 23 earthquakes were detected of magnitude 5.0 or greater, all at Bardarbunga. The largest earthquake, a magnitude 5.7, struck on 26 August. That's the largest earthquake in Iceland since a M6.3 struck east of Reykjavík in 2008.
Three scenarios of future development are still considered most likely. Firstly, that the subsidence of Bardarbunga's caldera will stop and the Holuhraun eruption slowly fades out.
Secondly, the subsidence could continue, along with the eruption in Holuhraun. Another eruption could start, possibly under glacier. In this scenario, the eruption(s) could last for a longer time, with lava volume possibly measured in cubic kilometres. Should a subglacial eruption occur, explosive action and glacial floods should be expected.
The third scenario is an eruption within the Bardarbunga caldera. Scientists say such an eruption could melt large volumes of ice, causing a powerful glacial flood. Another possibility is that the water would not immediately escape the caldera, because of the volcano's previous subsidence. That meltwater would later produce a large flood. When the eruption would reach through the glacial ice above, explosive eruption with ashfall would be expected.

Fukushima, Japan Rocked By Two Earthquakes in One Hour; Epicenter Near Nuclear Plants
A pair of moderate earthquakes struck just off the coast of Japan's Fukushima Prefecture Wednesday, close to the nuclear power plants crippled by the March 2011 tsunami. There were no early reports of damage, injuries, or new problems at the nuclear plants. The Japan Meteorological Agency says the first earthquake struck at 9:45 p.m. JST (8:45 a.m. EDT in the U.S.) and registered a magnitude of 5.0. The second quake, a slightly stronger magnitude-5.2 tremor, struck 46 minutes later. Both were centered just off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture, where the Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushimi Daini reactors were severely damaged in the March 11, 2011 tsunami that followed a magnitude-9.0 quake farther offshore. The damage spawned the worst crisis at a nuclear power plant since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, and prompted Japan to shut down most of its nuclear power plants.

Scary FBI stats: Mass shootings nearly tripled in last 7 years, mostly at schools

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous times

Wickedness will increase...love for others will grow cold....people will kill each other.....welcome to the last days.  It will be even worse during the coming Tribulation period.

We keep warning:  Now is the day of salvation....not tomorrow...not next year....not during the Tribulation....but right now.  Are you ready to make that decision?  Will you?

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Matthew 24:12 NIV

Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other. To him was given a large sword. Revelation 6:4 NIV

Scary FBI stats: Mass shootings nearly tripled in last 7 years, mostly at schools
Shootings in which a gunman wounds or kills multiple people have nearly tripled in the US in recent years, according to a new FBI report. The majority of those shooting incidents have occurred at businesses or schools, the report found. The study concentrated on 160 “active shooter incidents” between 2000 and 2013. Such incidents are defined as cases in which an attacking gunman shoots or attempts to shoot people in a populated area. The FBI excluded shootings that were gang- or drug-related. The report found that during the first seven years involved in the study, an average of 6.4 “active shooter incidents” occurred each year. That average increased to 16.4 per year in the final seven years studied. The largest portion of such incidents - 73 total, or 45.6 percent of all examined attacks - took place at a business, or “commercial environment,” the FBI found. Just over 24 percent, or 39 incidents, occurred at schools.
