Breaking Israel News: In the wake of ongoing seismic disturbances at Yellowstone, NASA scientists have suggested a drastic solution that they admit may actually set off the globally threatening catastrophe they are trying to prevent. One rabbi, steeped in knowledge of the Bible, suggested the scientists take a good look at their methods and try a more spiritual approach.
As tens of thousands of people gathered in Yellowstone National Park Monday morning to witness the once-in-a-century solar eclipse, the area was hit by a 3.2 magnitude earthquake. This recent tremor, though not large, is part of an ongoing series of quakes that began June 12. Experts believed the unusually large swarm of earthquakes would gradually die down but by the beginning of August, over 1,400 minor tremors had been recorded at the site.
Monday’s tremor, following a 2.5 magnitude quake at 7:23 PM Sunday night, indicates that the earthshaking problem is unlikely to simply go away. Should the supervolcano erupt, the threat to the Earth, said NASA scientist Brian Wilcox, “is substantially greater than the asteroid or comet threat.” more …
Opinion: There have been two earthquakes that altered the earth in this century.
March 3, 2010: The Chile 8.8 magnitude earthquake, the fifth strongest ever recorded, according to the USGS—could have shortened an Earth day by 1.26 millionths of a second, according to new computer-model calculations by geophysicist Richard Gross of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California.
April 11, 2011: The Fukushima 8.9 magnitude Quake moved Japan’s coast 8 feet and shifted Earth’s axis 4 inches (10 centimeters).
There will be a mighty earthquake during the Day of the Lord that will change the earth forever. There are three sets of judgments in Daniel’s 70th week (Daniel 9:24-27).
- Serial Judgments – Revelation 6
- Trumpet Judgments – Revelation 8-9
- Bowl judgments – Revelation 15-16
The great earthquake takes place at the end of the third set of judgments on a God-rejecting world.
“And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth.Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. Revelation 16:18-20
One would think that men would kneel before God and repent of their sins. But that is not what will happen:“Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.”
Notice that there is no mention of the church since it was taken up (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18) and will have been in the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:1-23) since Revelation 4:1.
