In the news today:

1. Earthquakes:

Violent Seismic Activity Tearing Africa in Two

We know from prophecy that earthquakes will be in the news.

The fissures began appearing years ago. But in recent months, seismic activity has accelerated in northeastern Africa as the continent breaks apart in slow motion. Researchers say that lava in the region is consistent with magma normally seen on the sea floor -- and that water will ultimately cover the desert.

The earth is in upheaval in northeastern Africa, and the region is changing quickly. The desert floor is quaking and splitting open, volcanoes are boiling over, and seawaters are encroaching upon the land. Africa, researchers are certain, is splitting apart at a rate rarely seen in geology.

Earth tremors cause deep fissures to form in the desert floor and the ground in East Africa is shattering like broken glass. Researchers in the Gulf of Tadjoura, which juts into Djibouti from the Gulf of Aden, have recently registered a barrage of seismic shocks. "The quakes are happening on the mid-ocean ridge," Ebinger reports.

This article is actually fascinating and worth reading; a story that doesn't receive much attention by the MSM. Below are a couple of additional quotes:

In the last five years, the geologic transformation of northeastern Africa has "accelerated dramatically," says Wright. Indeed, the process is going much faster than many had anticipated

But in the Danakil Depression, in the northern part of the valley, the ocean could arrive much sooner. There, low, 25 meter (82 foot) hills are the only thing holding back the waters of the Red Sea. The land behind them has already dropped dozens of meters from previous levels and white salt deposits on the desert floor testify to past encroachments of the sea. But lava soon choked off its access.

For now, no one can really say when the sea will finally flood the desert. But when it does, it could go quickly. "The hills could sink in a matter of days," Tim Wright, a fellow at the University of Leeds' School of Earth and Environment...

In the last five years, the geologic transformation of northeastern Africa has "accelerated dramatically," says Wright. Indeed, the process is going much faster than many had anticipated.

2. More Dead Animals Appear Unexpectedly:

I've never seen anything like it

As many as 20 dead harp seals have washed ashore in Boat Harbour over the past couple of weeks, leaving perplexed locals scratching their heads as to the reasons why.

Wallace Woodward, who has lived in the small community northwest of St. Anthony for most of his 52 years, says no one can remember such a thing happening before.

And it’s not just harp seals that have been swept into the harbour — hundreds of dead catfish have washed onto land, becoming entangled with the seaweed strewn along the shore.

A myriad of other marine life, like sea slugs, sea urchins and starfish have also perished in the past three weeks.

“I’ve never seen anything like it, b’y, in all my years,” Woodward said Thursday, “It’s just unbelievable.”

Pelicans turn up sick, dead off Jacksonville coast

Hundreds of Eastern brown pelicans, some with missing wings and frostbite, have been injured or killed in the St. Johns River the past couple of weeks in the Mayport area.

These articles on unexplained deaths of so many animals keeps giving me the ominous thought of "the canary in the coalmine". Are these animal deaths analogous to the canary in the coalmine, with the earth as the coalmine, and these animals as the "canary"? Food for thought.

3. This one is in the category of "Huh?" Not sure what this one means, if anything, but interesting. The Department of Defense is up to something:

FAA to pilots: Expect 'unreliable or unavailable' GPS signals

The US Federal Aviation Administration is warning pilots to expect “unreliable or unavailable” signals from their global positioning gear as a result unspecified tests being carried out by the Department of Defense.

A second NOTAM (PDF) warns of similar GPS disruptions centered in Southern California Nevada around the same period.

“Pilots are highly recommended to report anomalies during testing to the appropriate [Air Route Traffic Control Center] to assist in the determination of the extent of GPS degradation during tests.”

4. The World Financial Crisis and the Coming "New World Order":

Debt Bondage From Economic Treason

Between now and the end of the year, most likely in the fall, we’ll see major financial and economic problems in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Belgium, Spain and Italy. Those events will sorely test Germany, France, Holland and Austria.

In Ireland harsh measures are being taken. Public spending will be cut 12%. Added to that is a tax increase that would be a reduction of $7.8 billion. Public services and the minimum wage will be cut as well. The wealthy will pay more and child support payments will fall.

While the above troubles manifest themselves the US goes merrily on its way like nothing was wrong. Americans have been pre-propagandized, as they were under stimulus - one into believing a recovery is in progress. We don’t share that prediction. The Irish and others understand their problems, but Americans cannot come to grips with them.

We see a rocky year in Europe that could end in bankruptcies. The efforts to bailout Greece and Ireland and now Portugal and Spain, will increase debt throughout Europe and lead to all nations having problems.

Thats not all - now we see that the measures taken thus far, intended to "fix" the problem will only make things worse:

These Fed policies and those of the ECB are designed to extend problems rather than solve them, which tells us there is no solution. Look at what has been done in Greece. No solution, just patchwork and austerity in order to delay the problems. Ireland’s bailout is a carbon copy. Such programs can only bring on default, which we expect to occur later this year.

This grand design for nations to be interconnected could eventually cause all of them to collapse like dominoes. If the US, the UK and Europe are in trouble the entire world is in trouble.

Such programs can only bring on default, which we expect to occur later this year.

This is where the world governance is "necessary":

Everything is supposed to have a global solution.
This in part is what the new world order is all about.

Destroy the economies of Europe and the US and force them to accept world government. These are part of the group of people who want to dictate how you will live – every facet of your life. This process destroys the sovereignty of the nation state. Their functions are taken over by the World Bank, IMF, BIS and the WTO.

Today as a solution to poor bank lending we see austerity programs whose creation go back centuries. The enforcer today is the IMF, which in its processes becomes a dictatorial power of its own. In the austerity process comes privatization or the looting of assets owned by a sovereign state in the name of repatriation of debt.

This last quote is even more chilling:

The IMF may be the new world order’s Gestapo, which sets up formerly sovereign states as supplicant members of world government. The goal ultimately is a world bank to control all nations monetarily and financially. The stepping-stone to this condition is the BIS, the Bank for International Settlements.

What people have to understand is that events do not happen by chance and there are no coincidences. Every major event is planned as are many other smaller ones.

And finally, this last statement - something to be remembered in these last days:

Let this all be a lesson to you. Nothing is ever as it seems to be.

The GPS thing is truly strange.
Wonder what they are up to.
Guessing my auto GPS will not be
reliable when dh and I travel
through your neck of the woods
on the way to the beach the end
of this month.

Kem --- Just ask me for directions, I'll get you the shortcuts with the appropriate warnings of speed traps (disclaimer for "big brother": Just kidding on the speed traps comment :)

About the possible formation of a new sea. Wonder if it could be in preparation for the mill?
A river will flow out from under the Temple mount toward the Dead Sea and (I think) it is assumed to ward the Med. I can't quite make it in my memory, but I wonder if ...

Scott said...

Hmmm...Interesting thought - I hadn't considered that.

Hey Scott Happy New Year - unfortunately I got a feeling the new year's world events won't develop so happy though.

What a bizarre thing with these mass animal deaths. I'm hesitant to start pointing to anything in Scripture on it in regards to eschatology. However, it sure seems to back up Paul's point in Romans regarding the coming glorification of the saints and creation: "For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now." Romans 8:22.

The changing north pole is reflective of that too. What bizarre events we're seeing.


Scott said...

Very bizarre, indeed. There aren't any specific scriptures (that I am aware of) that deal with these mysterious deaths - on this side of the tribulation. During the Tribulation, there will be periods of unprecedented animal and human deaths, from a variety of causes....

I still wonder if this is the "canary in the coalmine" thing. Are gasses being released from inside of the earth? Are the shifting magnetoc poles interfering with these animal's guidance systems?

Whatever the cause, I wonder if it will dramatically worsen during the tribulation, and be the cause of some of the deaths observed during that period.

Very interesting either way

I agree, it certainly could be the first warnings of greater calamity to come. We know that much worse is down the road, and that the changes in the earth increase in intensity and frequency (the labor pains).

I love how Paul makes the comment in Romans that even the creation wants to be done with this, groaning for the day in which it will be glorified.

Sure seems that the earth is doing a lot of groaning these days. I agree with you, these bizarre deaths seem to be some sort of warning.

Amazing to be watching all of this come to pass.
