Virginia Earthquake 2011: USGS Warns it May be a Foreshock
Minutes after the quake, the director of the USGS, Marcia McNutt -- who watched objects falling from the shelves in her office -- cautioned that the shaking might not be over.
"What the concern is, of course, is that this is a foreshock. If it's a foreshock, then the worst is yet to come," McNutt told The Washington Post.
Today we see yet another huge quake in the world, this time in Peru:
7.0-Magnitude earthquake strikes northern Peru
A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck northern Peru on Wednesday, authorities said.
The quake's epicenter was about 350 miles (570 kilometers) northeast of the country's capital, Lima, and 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Pucallpa, Peru, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
4.5=Mag Aftershock Rumbles Overnight
The 5.8-magnitude earthquake Tuesday that shook people from Georgia to Canada has produced at least five aftershocks, including one at 1:07 a.m. Thursday that clocked in at a magnitude of 4.5 and woke up many people across the D.C. region.
Just take a look at the quakes over the past two weeks:
MIDDLE EAST and LIBYA:
Libya's deadliest weapons not yet corralled
No one can be sure who controls the Libyan government's weapons stockpiles, a stew of deadly chemicals, raw nuclear material and some 30,000 shoulder-fired rockets that officials fear could fall into terrorists' hands in the chaos of Moammar Gadhafi's downfall or afterward.
One immediate worry, U.S. intelligence and military officials say, is that Gadhafi might use the weapons to make a last stand. But officials also face the troubling prospect that the material, which was left under Gadhafi's control by a U.S.-backed disarmament pact, could be obtained by al-Qaida or other militants even after a rebel victory is secured.
Nuclear experts warn of Libya "dirty bomb" material
A research center near Tripoli has stocks of nuclear material that could be used to make a "dirty bomb," a former senior U.N. inspector said on Wednesday, warning of possible looting during turmoil in Libya.
Islamist Cleric: Meet an Israeli? Kill Him
Keep this in mind as the MSM tells us that the Muslim Brotherhood is a "moderate" group:
A senior cleric in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has declared that ordinary Egyptians are obligated to kill 'Zionists' whom they encounter. According to Arutz Sheva Arab affairs expert Dalit Halevy, the pronouncement is part of a general wave of incitement that directly endangers Israelis who are currently in Egypt.
Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Threatens To Kill Israeli Ambassador Unless He Leaves The Country
The Muslim Brotherhood has threatened to kill Israel’s ambassador to Cairo if he does not leave the country. The radical Muslim group has been leading daily protests at the Israeli embassy in Cairo, demanding the expulsion of the envoy and a break in relations between Egypt and Israel.
Hundreds of demonstrators surrounded the embassy Monday as armored military and police officers prevented them from repeating Saturday night’s incident when rioters broke down the gate. One firebomb smashed through a front window of the embassy’s office.
Rocket hurts baby: IDF hits Gaza arms depot
At least 20 rockets were fired at Israel's southern communities since Wednesday evening with calm nowhere in sight.
A rocket fired at Ashkelon Wednesday evening exploded near a house in the Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. A 9-month-old baby was hit by glass splinters and sustained light to moderate wounds. He was taken to the Barzilai Medical Center. A vehicle caught fire and damage was also caused to several structures.
US and EUROPE:
America is Under Attack
As most of you are aware, the fascist and Marxist left has, over the years, infiltrated and virtually taken over middle and upper management of our government agencies. Land and environmental management agencies, especially, have been infested with radicals and extremists, the way the Democrat-run inner cities are infested with rats, cockroaches, and criminals. They are everywhere, in the daylight, and in the dark nooks and crannies.
As early as 1946, the left began a strategy to use people’s concern for the environment to impose government control over land use (http://sovereignty.net/). They tricked people into accepting laws that on the surface appeared designed to protect some aspect of the environment, but always, with vague or ambiguous language, or clauses hidden deep within the legalese and gobbledygook, gave government the power to regulate and control our property, our businesses, and our lives. Today, we see this manifest in the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the totally misnamed Environmental Protection Agency.
The insane reporting requirements for “greenhouse gas emissions” that will cost consumers tens of millions of dollars, are just the beginning. What the neo-fascist and Marxist Democrats were stopped by the American people from doing with cap-and-trade, they are now trying to do using administrative rules and executive orders. Remember when he told us we couldn’t keep using air conditioning and heat?
Shadowhawk: RC Copter from Hell
When you think about RC helicopters, the word lethal isn’t really something that pops into mind, but it might when you see this one. The Shadowhawk helicopter is remote-controlled and can fire stun batons, shotgun shells and grenades at your enemies.
It took Vanguard Defense about three years to come up with this, but it will sure surprise anyone who dismisses the Shadowhawk as a toy. It’s 7 feet long and weighs 49lbs. It can travel at speeds of up to 70mph. It’s got a bunch of sensors so that it can also serve as a drone, as well as laser pointers, range finders, and 37mm or 40mm grenade launchers.
Judge Calls Location-Tracking Orwellian, While Congress Moves To Legalize IT
A federal judge’s decision requiring the government to get a court warrant before obtaining mobile-phone location data is one of a string of conflicting opinions on the topic. It comes as lawmakers and the Supreme Court weigh in on the hot-button issue of locational privacy.
U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis ruled on Tuesday that the government can only acquire cellphone location data on a surveillance target with a full-blown “probable cause” warrant from a judge. The government had argued that it’s entitled to the data whenever it’s “relevant” to a criminal investigation — a lower standard. The feds were seeking 113 days worth of cell-site data, or “recorded information identifying the base-station towers and sectors that received transmissions” from the target’s cellphone.
“While the government’s monitoring of our thoughts may be the archetypical Orwellian intrusion, the government’s surveillance of our movements over a considerable time period through new technologies, such as the collection of cell-site-location records, without the protections of the Fourth Amendment, puts our country far closer to Oceania than our Constitution permits,” (.pdf) the judge wrote.
Ron Paul: Mobs in Europe A Sign Of Things Coming
Magnitude 7.0 - Northern Peru
Hurricane Irene: Major Northeast Threats
Our projected path map below continues to paint an ominous picture by pointing Hurricane Irene right in the direction of the East Coast this weekend. The latest computer model guidance confirms this threat and the first hurricane watches have been issued for the United States.
The potential is real for the strongest hurricane hit on the Northeast in at least a couple decades this weekend!
We're clearly in the mist of growing birthpains, both in frequency and magnitude. There can be no doubting this fact.
Jesus gave us these signs for a reason - our knowing the signs and preparing for His coming is of tremendous importance to Jesus.
Just consider that His last teaching - only moments before His arrest and execution - He was discussing end times prophecy in great detail (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Mark 13)...
And consider that immediately following His resurrection, He was discussing the importance of prophecy and He was teaching that confusion arose about His death and resurrection because the people of that day (including the apostles) resulted from not knowing the prophetic scriptures. Take a look at Luke 24, where Jesus described the prophecies to the two men walking back to Emmaus, and His detailed review of the prophecies of His first coming to the apostles.
He wants us to be prepared for His coming - one of the main reasons we have these prophetic scriptures.
The signs are in abundance - every single sign that He gave us is peaking right now - all of them.
Jesus gave us a "cheat-sheet" concerning His coming - He took considerable time and effort making sure that these prophecies were transcribed and available to all of us. It is that important to Jesus.
Just take a look Luke 12. Jesus actually called His followers hypocrites for not understanding the prophetic scriptures of that day, as they pertained to His first coming.
Time is growing short now. The time to be fully prepared for His coming is now.
We need to prepare by continual deep prayer and a longing to be with Him.
The Groom is coming for His Bride. What Bride doesn't want to be prepared for that day?
This is an expectation that Jesus has - the basis of His prophetic scriptures.
He also said to be looking up at this time. Looking up for His return with a focus on Him and our imminent fate - not to be concerned, worrying or fretting over the condition of this world.
Jesus has a far better plan for us. A plan that will be coming soon. Its a promise.
Now is the time. We need to be fully prepared for His coming.
All in Carolinas and Virginia, lets pray together and prepare together! We are all gonna BE OK! God Bless! Its wake up time for the sleepy. I'm happy because I know he is coming soon
Good recap Scott...the birth pains are indeed increasing in frequency and intensity. Thanks for the encouragement to get ready and be ready.
My daugter recently had my first grand child and she was soo looking forward to his arrival.
About half way thru the contractions and delivery she received an epideral for the pain. At that point she no longer could feel the contractions.
It reminded me this morning as I read your commentary...much of the church is on "pain medication" of all sorts and is completely missing the signs/contractions that the Lord is sending to remind us of His soon coming...
Hopefully some of the sleeping church will wander this way and have the scales removed from their eyes before it is too late.
Thank you for this insightful commentary on the current events. I am so thankful that you are one of our brothers and that Jesus must be very pleased that you devote your time to educate and inform your readers.
Ally, it's good to see you back and I hope you continue to have access to this blog.
WV, that's an excellent point. People are turning to the entertainment industry to distract them from reality. Isn't Satan so very cleaver with his packaging?
Sue, you've been on my mind quite a bit and prayers are going up for you. I do appreciate your biblical knowledge and discernment as we ride the rough waves of the sea. Jesus will soon walk towards us and calm the storms of life once and for all.
I am so happy for you and your family. What a miracle to witness this birth and wonderful, most precious extension of your family. :)
The precious beauty of an innocent child. To think of Jesus coming like that, I am just simpy amazed. Let your family know my thoughts and wishes are with you all.
Ally, Dear Sister, I am so glad you are still doing OK. Your strength sounds good. Just know we are here for you always and thinking of you daily. Miss you and Alice now to think of it.
Alice, I hope your doing well too. You two were one of the first I spoke with other than Scott when I came to this forum. Hold down lovely, MO.
Oh no! Now I'm blubbing again, me stiff upper lip has gone all limp!
It's hard on everyone, we HAVE to trust the only thing we can depend upon - The Word of The Lord. Let God be true and every man a liar!
ALL things work together for good for those who trust in Christ Jesus and are called according to His Word!
This is important to note (I tell myself) the vital issue is 'for those who TRUST in Christ...' Even we Justified need to remind ourselves to actively TRUST Him; otherwise we are to be tossed like waves and little good can come of that. Got to keep short accounts with 1John1:9; this is no time to be out of step with The Father
Me you too Geared! God bless your heart!
GG too, for your recent post that I didn't get round to acknowledging.
P.S. Being too lazy to turn the pages of my Bible; I just tried to access the Blue Letter Bible site. It has just experienced an ‘unexpected error’; it is showing info for ‘debugging’ purposes? Prayers for that site so they can quickly solve the problem. Sounds a bit ‘sus’ to me?
Last night I lost internet connection for a few hours? Just wondering if it could be a result of the predicted solar storm?
Rumbly Tumblies – gotta dash!
Keep close to the Cross and Praise The Lord!
Every blessing to ya
My bags have been packed for a while....I just hate the waiting!!!
This blog makes me chickle and grin..
It reminds me of the pod somethings from one of the Narnia books. They were invisible ( Dawn Treader) and the children could only hear them talking. They repeated each other alot, After you . oh no, after you.. no really
matey.. after you.. etc etc..
We are obviously beside ourselves with expectation . For me it is the catch up of my brain with facts that has me pumped. I have felt His cominbg most of my life but recently I see more deeply than before the clearness of the day.
I rejoice to know you all here and still pray for Paula's Mom and baby Sam.
Aw Sue, bless your heart. Sending you a virtual cup of coffee and a little chocolate to boost the spirit.
I walk the path of melancholy more than I want to and when darkness begins to descend, I have to unplug for awhile and get into nature. I keep the bible close at hand for comfort and I have carried one into the woods on my bike. There is a bench nestled deep in the woods and it's where I spend time with the Father in total peace and tranquility.
I think about these storms that are raging and all I can think about is finally being safe in the arms of Jesus. We will no longer know pain nor sadness. Isn't that comforting?
EI, up here in Canada I lost Internet for like 5 hours yesterday. I wonder if it's a coincidence?
Waterer, I believe you're talking about the monopods who were turned invisible by the magician?
Thanks GG and gearedup2go...
I agree Gary...
Sue is full of goodness and wisdom...
Dylan can't possibly be 14... Really?
Awe... yes hikes and bikes deep in the woods gearedup...hence my love for WV...I raised my three kids on the Hemlock hiking trail and Coopers Rock just 15 minutes from home...My son has graduate to Yosemite though...good memories
No more seperation once we are in Heaven! Yeah!
Thanks waterer...I missed that prayer for baby Sam...How nice! Blessings!
Wv, just wondering, why is it hard to believe that I'm 14?
Dylan...you are wise beyond your years...and not many 14 year olds would be on a prophecy message board.
Nothing specific other than a big hug to our family here.
WV, what a blessing you have been given.
Sue, thinking of you over there.....Mrs C says Hi too but she is just a bit overwhelmed right now with tons of "stuff". Now, a big nasty hurricane simply was not on the personal calendar....we checked it several times and it ain't there.
Ally, what a joy to see you here. Big hug from the Caver household. Praying for ya Sis.
Scott, words don't work. Thank you Brother!
Geared, I know exactly what you mean. I have my spot in the trees and a table/chair myself.
Dylan, you are such a joy and to have found out your age shocked both Mrs C and myself.
GG, Waterer, Gary, Alice and everyone else...its such a joy to sit-n-watch-n-read-n-fellowship with the little family here.
And yea, for those wondering....the dog, Sabby, is still as fearful and clingy as ever, if not more so. Who knows???
OK, now time to dash out and get the last of the goodies to batten down the hatches and ride this monster out. The panic crowds will start this evening so I plan on being all tucked in before then. We're moving the mattress into the great room since all the bedrooms are under trees....BIG trees.... Pines-n-Oaks.
Awwww, shucks GG... everyone...this is SUCH a GREAT place!
WV, such a great analogy of birth expectation and birth pain meds... And congrats on the birth of your first grandchild! What a precious gift from above!
I will share a little something... My 21 yr old daughter just got engaged. We are so fortunate to KNOW that they both know our Lord Jesus! They have their date set for about 10 months from now. I can't help but wonder if we will be here... I also wonder if I'm now one of those whom Jesus was speaking about in Matthew 24:38...
38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark...
What do you think??? ;)
I have had a close encounter with our Walnut tree. I have had a couple of Christmas breakdowns under its branches, in the pitch black and frost – then I realised I was barking up the wrong tree and relocated to the Old Wooden Cross instead! :)
Yes! All fun aside; I agree, as creation is a beautiful reflection of its incredible designer. Praise The Lord! \O/
That’s jolly interesting! Are we more or less on the same ‘thingy’ that goes around the earth? Perhaps it DID have something to do with space weather!
Listen lad; I am a grandmother and you are WAY older than I am; your mum and dad must be as pleased as punch with their wise sprog. ;D
What’s with the bags; we are all going up in heavenly togs. ;)
Many, many congrats to the proud grandparent. I was SO excited when my first grand baby was born that I wanted to give out cigars to the world and his wife – but I don’t smoke! We had to wait such an age for him, then just like a number 9 bus, two came along at once, and a girl to boot… Glory! SEVEN to date :)
Excuse my smile; we call a gent who is ‘three sheets to the wind’ as being ‘well watered’. :)
KNOW that the trial of your faith WILL stand you in good stead for the kingdom. 1Peter1:7
Hey everyone. Happy Thursday to all of you. Really means a lot to come here and read your comments.
Dylan I think you have us all fooled. I think you are like that character in the brad pitt movie who grew backwards. LOL You are wise and actually you are personally fulfilling prophecy as God's word tell us in
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.”
So see what a blessing you are to us. If I were you and I had all these brothers and sisters saying things to me like this then I would have to be keeping a journal that includes dreams, random thoughts about the Kingdom and possible visions that come in to your head. God's word says that these things will happen. Pray, as you start the journal, for God to reveal to you supernaturally anything and everything. Periodically let us know here what God reveals to you. I think your presence here is already revealing God's word to us in a way that we wouldn't have known if you weren't here. Take care brother!
James in Nashville!
Congratulations Alice! I share your joy. My son at 29 is going to "finally" pop the question this weekend and the big date is either going to be either March or May. They are both believers as well.
I struggle sharing about the imminent rapture at times with my family. They are experiencing all these joyous events and the last thing I want to do is be a "killjoy". I try to bring it up when the opportunity presents itself in natural conversations so they at least will know Dad was not "crazy" & right after all... :)
I'll be shocked if we make it too this wedding and it does happen in 2012. If we are by some chance still here I will be overjoyed at my sons wedding. If not I will be supremely overjoyed at the much bigger event, the wedding of the church to Christ and the marriage super of the Lamb to follow!
I think watchers are "gifted" by the HS and others while they may believe in the rapture/second coming it is not their passion or calling.
We have 2 sons taking lovely wives in the spring next year and I have great joy for them
Loving itself and wanting to share their lives is a good and right thing.I plan with joy but believe we are in those days of Noah.
I am remembering the childhood prayer when I fall asleep these days. If I should die before I wake, God Bless... Only I say if Iam raptured before I wake bless...
You know how your dog is behaving - and you know how the squirrels are 'missing'?
W-E-LL I was a wonderin ifn Sabby has a poorly tummy from chasing and gobbling said missing squirrels? Clever dog; send him over here if he wants some more; the little blighters have nibbled into our loft space AND have near scoffed all the Hazelnuts - and baby Walnut trees are sprouting up ALL over the blooming place where they bury them and forget where they put em!
Yoo Hoo Mrs C - I have lots of 'stuff' to be getting on with too - thats why I'm here. ;)
Seriously keeping an eye on the big wind; its never bothered me before, but now that I know y'all - its suddenly very important. Praying you will all be protected by angels on asignment carrying big brollies and generally keeping all of you, your animals and homes safe and sound.
Sue: (I'm pretending to be DrNo with this next question)
What is are "big brollies"? :)
EI, is there a possibility that you get Internet through telus? Because my friend (who is also on telus) had his Internet shut down 2 days ago.
Alice, Congrats on your daughter's engagement!
Waterer, Congrats on your sons' engagements.
Same with you Wv!
Scott said... "...What is are..."
Scott, if'n yer gonna pretend to be me, yer gonna hafta tighten up on yer grammar!
Don't wanna give the wrong impression to all the young'uns out there...
Wut in the Lake o' Fire are them thar brollies anyway??
Arrrgggg - You caught me again!
Are you in a conspiracy with my daughter - who has been assigned to point out my many mistakes and flaws? Are you two working together on this?
But maybe you can help out here - what in the heck are "brollies"??????
Hers a guess- umbrellas
Scott, it's ok. I like to correct my parents too.
He he ha what a laugh! Ann Marie guessed right; a brolly is an umbrella, usually 'rolled' like a city gent carries.
Didn't you watch Mary Poppins? :D
Please take care of them Heavenly Father, please protect your people as the storm rages; please turn it - blow with your breath and scatter it safely away from doing any harm. Emcompass your people about with your loving kindness and let your mercies drop as dew upon their heads instead of the torrential rains.
In the name of your beloved son and our saviour, Jesus Christ I make my request known to you. Father I give you all the praise and all the glory for what you will do. Praise The Lord! Amen!
Thanks for the prayers Sue - It seems somewhat unpredictable at the moment - now they have it coming a little more east.
Dylan - not you too!!! :)
Hi Sue...kind of chuckling at the theory on Sabby and the squirrels. Well, afraid that is not the answer...his only big interest in the little gray fur balls is stealing the peanuts Mrs C puts out twice a day.
Thank you for your prayer.
OK, the scoop on the big blob of wind, waves and rain. They have the affected area broken into 5 colors standing for levels of damage/danger. Purple is extreme and is along the coast, then red for high, orange for moderate, yellow for measurable, and light yellow for low.
The red (high) to orange (moderate) boundary runs right over our little town and us.
Looks like its going to be an exciting next 54 hours.
Stay safe in NC...we are praying for your safety and protection!
Waterer, WV, wow! Right here in our little community we have at least 4 weddings in 2012!
WV, how exciting that this weekend is the "pop the question" weekend!!!
And I agree, WV, not everyone is called to watch. However, my daughter is nearly as aware of where we are as I am, so she knows that she may be attending the Wedding Supper of the Lamb instead of her own wedding reception, and she says she will be blissfully happy either way. Of course, I will be too!!!
Praying for those of you on the east coast!
Alice do you have two daughters to wed? That could be pricey...lol
My son's wedding will be in Iowa but the guys' parents usually get off cheaper. My wife will find some way to "help" the brides parents I'm sure of that! She loves to give...
WV, no, thankfully just one expensive wedding on the horizon! Phew!
Then I have a son two years behind her. It will be a few years before he will be looking to marry, though. But I think I will probably be like your wife and try to find some way to help the bride's parents...
