Daily Headlines

Predictably, we're already beginning to see articles which are attempting to put the recent earthquakes in perspective:

The Ring Of Fire Is Roaring To Life

Does it seem to you like there has been an unusual amount of seismic activity around the world lately? Well, it isn't just your imagination. The Ring of Fire is roaring to life and that is really bad news for the west coast of the United States. Considering the fact that the entire west coast of the United States lies along the Ring of Fire, we should be very concerned that the Ring of Fire is becoming more active.

On Wednesday, the most powerful strike-slip earthquake ever recordedhappened along the Ring of Fire.
If that earthquake had happened in a major U.S. city along the west coast, the city would have been entirely destroyed.

In a previous article, I showed that earthquakes are becoming more frequent around the globe. In 2001, there were 137 earthquakes of magnitude 6.0 or greater and in 2011 there were 205. The charts and data that I presented in that previous article show a clear upward trend in large global earthquakes over the past decade, and that is why what happened this week is so alarming.

And earthquake activity along the west coast has definitely been heating up in recent days.

On Wednesday, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck approximately 160 miles off of the coast of Oregon.

Early on Thursday, there were two major earthquakes (magnitude 6.9 and magnitude 6.2) in the Gulf of California.

One of these days, one or more of the major volcanoes on the west coast is going to experience a major eruption again. There have been signs that Mt. Rainier has been becoming more active, and a major eruption of Mt. Rainier could potentially be absolutely devastating for much of the northwest United States.

Of even greater concern along the Ring of Fire is Mt. Fuji. As I wrote about the other day, Mt. Fuji has been dormant for about 300 years but is now rapidly roaring to life. New craters have appeared and these new craters are venting gas. There has been a swarm of earthquakes under Mt. Fuji this year, including a magnitude 6.4 earthquake on March 15th.

If Mt. Fuji were to experience a full-blown eruption, the consequences could be absolutely catastrophic. Mt. Fuji is not too far from Tokyo - one of the most densely populated cities on the entire planet. The loss of life resulting from a full-blown eruption of Mt. Fuji would be almost unimaginable.

But it is not just along the Ring of Fire that we are seeing a rise in volcanic activity. The truth is that we are seeing a rise involcanic activity all over the globe. The following are just a couple of recent examples which have been in the news....

*The volcanoes in Iceland that caused such huge problems a few years ago are becoming very active once again.

*Authorities in Colombia have declared a "red alert" and believe that an eruption of the Nevado del Ruiz volcano is imminent.

*Ash is venting at the world famous Anak Krakatau volcano in Indonesia.

Something really strange is going on.

The government's revised quake-tsunami estimates have sent shock waves across Japan and forced local municipalities to reassess their worst-case scenarios.

The new estimates, based on a tremendous earthquake striking in the 750-km Nankai Trough running from Honshu to Kyushu, warn of devastation far worse than last year's megaquake and tsunami.

NATO said on Thursday that it was concerned about an incident on the Turkish-Syrian border this week that caused casualties on the Turkish side of the frontier, after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Turkey could seek NATO's help if similar incidents occur.

Two Turkish nationals and two Syrians were injured in a refugee camp in Kilis province when Syrian forces fired across the border during clashes with opposition fighters that reportedly had attempted to seize control of the border gate and then fled to Turkey. Erdoğan called the incident a border violation and said Turkey would pursue measures under international law in response, raising prospects of military retaliation.

The United Nations Security Council is to vote on a resolution to send an advance team of 10 to 12 observers to Syria within days to monitor a ceasefire that has been "relatively respected", a spokesman for UN envoy Kofi Annan said on Friday.

A larger mission of up to 250 observers would be sent later, Annan's spokesman Ahmad Fawzi told a regular news briefing in Geneva. He declined to say which countries might supply staff to the mission, but said many of the likely countries already had staff in the region who could move quickly.

"We hope we'll have a Security Council resolution later today authorizing the advance team. The (UN) Department of peacekeeping operations is working around the clock to find the necessary number of troops for the full observer mission eventually.

Many people are familiar with the content of this next article - which is not part of the Bible's prophetic scriptures - therefore must be taken with a 'grain of salt' at best. However it is interesting to view from a healthy distance.

Based on its pre-sales, “Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope is Here,” may be the surprise hit of the year.

The book has been riding high on the Amazon charts for weeks before its release this week.

It makes the case that the successor to Pope Benedict XVI will be the last Roman Catholic pontiff – leading to what has been prophesied as the “great apostasy” and even the destruction of Rome.

For more than 800 years, scholars have pointed to the dark augury regarding “the last pope.” The prophecy, taken from St. Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes,” is among a list of verses predicting each of the Roman Catholic popes from Pope Celestine II to the final pope, “Peter the Roman,” whose reign would end in the destruction of Rome.

According to the prophecy, the next pope is to be the final pontiff, Petrus Romanus or Peter the Roman. Some Catholics believe that the next pope on St. Malachy’s list heralds the beginning of “great apostasy” followed by “great tribulation,” setting the stage for the imminent unfolding of apocalyptic events, something many non-Catholics would agree with.

Good morning Scott! Whew doggie! Hard to ignore those tremblors eh? Yep, its a gettin crazy out there, good thing im already a little crazy so adjusting is not to hard.
OK, I have the power of a sound mind, and my sound mind ha put a whole lot of pieves together over half a decade. Thank God, literally, that I still have my sanity.Because with some of the stuff I know for sure, it sounds like im living on crazy street if I talk to people about it. And that includes you guys!
So that being said....the volcanos are waking up big time. There is somewhere an interview with the brilliant steve quayle thats about 3 hours long where he discussed how when why on vulcanism rising. Its awesome. (i love it when someone way smarter than me, way more studied biblically and scientifically than me, comes to the same independent cinclusion as me) Im actually pretty smart, just not good at expressing my ideas un a socially approved fashion!
This would be a good time to be open to new ideas as ling as they are biblical. There is lots I would like to share right now but wouldnt be accepted by the general christian populace currently.
Question of the day then.
What could possibly happen that would cause ALL the religons on earth to become one religion, virtually overnight without much protest? And might even decieve the elect, if possible? And the cindition our churches are in niw, will definately be deceiving most of em. The great deception.
Question 2 is a hot button also. People have been eating, drunking and marrying since the beginning of us. What was different about Noahs day that the Bible used to give us hints at whats up ahead folks? God didnt use Noahs day as an example for no reason. He is pretty good at including important info for us!
Love you all very much! WV, we are one day closer to getting outta here and the sugns are increasing un intensity!

ans 1. end time one religion is false teaching, for there will always be jews even at the end (judaism).
ans 2. look at rev 11 after they have killed the two witnesses what they will do is "sending gifts to one another" happy days.

Scott, your thoughts on it?

Scott said...

Many thoughts. I'm kind of in a hurry, but if I can't get through this, I'll come back later.

1. You always have to envision what the world will probably look like after the rapture...Certainly, on a religious/spiritual level, the earth will be almost 100% comprised of non-believers, who lack the discernment of the Holy Spirit (aka "the restrainer"). . This will be a very very different world. Look how non-believers are deceived now - in a relatively normal world.

Imagine how easy it will be to deceive them, when they are in total fear - having no explanation for what just happened - confused, seeing a world-wide economic collapse, coupled with all of the post-rapture carnage.

I think sometimes we forget just how extreme and bizarre and surreal the world will be at that time.

2. In this setting, for the first 3.5 years of the Tribulation, I believe we'll have a religion that is "politically correct"...Some hodgepodge of a combined religion, with the roots comprised of elements of Islam and RCC as the main components...Perry Stone has an EXCELLENT video on the many many common elements between RCC and Islam. Its stunning and there are MANY common components, one of which is the feelings towards Mary.

3. The AC will allow the above for the first half of the Tribulation. While this is happening, the non-believers (still a vast majority of the population even though people will come to Christ during these times) - will be ripe to believe anything and they will see signs and wonders that the FP and the AC produce. Again, no discernment (that the HS would have provided them).

4. The "deception"....There are a lot of theories as to what this is. Some people think its simply the deception regarding the AC attempting to pass himself off as god. Some folks believe its the explanation for the Rapture of the CHurch. Some folks think that the AC will tell people that - during the Tribulation - its too late to come to Christ and to have any chance at all (to survive) - they have to combine with the AC to defeat Christ. I lean towards the "explaining the Rapture" as the deception, and I have always felt that the "UFO story" will come into play. for a variety of reasons - possibly involving disproving the Bible and the story of God's creation of Man - But this is all total speculation on my part and no one really knows what this deception will be, .....

wow. Thank you. I always love to hear your thoughts on these things. I agree with everything you said as well.

Love Perry Stone. I will look into that video, I want to see it.

Scott said...

I believe that video is called "Apparitions of Mary" or something to that effect. I need to look it up and make sure though

One of the weapons of the bull is volume, BUT that can be looked at
ANOTHER way, since that is also a
weapon of the bear.

And i have noticed that stocks have
NOW BEEN DOWN two weeks in a row.
and the latest week HAS seen an increase in volume from the previous week.


Next week is feeling
now is that we are in (1) of 3 CIRCLE on the downside.

As stated before, there will be
a NUMBER 2 UP rally after the current (1) down is done.

THEN (3) of 3 circle hits...

what does that mean ??

BLACK SWAN events (such as the rapture) are MORE THEN LIKELY going
to hit at that time.

I could be wrong about this; it
is ONLY SPECULATION what i am going
to say now, PLEASE do not take it in concrete.....

BUT, i have been looking at the wave counts back in SEP/OCT 1929
as a MODEL for this current bear.
And I see very similiar patterns
as of tonite starting to develop.

In 1929, SEP was down (1) down was
complete by end of SEP, then a (2)
rally in first week of OCTOBER...

then the last few weeks of OCTOBER were pure HELL.

total panic....wave after wave of it. Then a (4) up with the final
(5) down ending at 13 NOV 1929.

Ok, so if you do a comparative analysis U will see that applying
that to 2012 gives a CRASH MAX
last three weeks of May....2012.

As I said i am ONLY speculating
about this, I am NOT for real sure
about this ok ??

But we will see....

It is my understanding that the POPE will be making a DECISION on
16 APR 2012 re his retirement from
the RCC...........does anyone
know about this ??

Please comment if you do...

Spot check of EU markets shows more trouble then was originally, UK, and German stocks NEVER WENT ABOVE their respective April 2011 highs
like the dow did in the USA....

not good !!!!

What this basically means is THAT
those markets just mentioned are about to hit the dirt hard so to say on the downside, as (3) of 3 circle has ALREADY begun with them
vs. (1) of three circle on the DJII. Spain and Portugal, Greece,
and Italy charts look downright sick......!!!!

I KNOW all this sounds confusing;
i am talking in the language of
EWI but what I just said is quite
serious.....since it means that
the BEAR has more power then I
first thought, atleast in the EU.

DOES ANYONE remember this song ??

From the Supremes in SEP/OCT 1970

thought perhaps the prophecy gang
would enjoy it......

Stephen !!!!


Come with me
And we shall run across the sky
And illuminate the night

O-h-h-h, I will try and guide you
To better times and brighter days
Don't be afraid...

Come up the ladder to the roof
Where we can see heaven much better
Come up the ladder to the roof
Where we can be (where we can be) mmm...
(where we can be)...closer to heaven
(To heaven-stay)

Stay with me
And we shall let expression

Can't you hear 'em ring
(Memories of yesterday)
Yesterday's broken dreams
Dont you know, they'll all fade away
If you'll come...

Up the ladder to the roof
Where we can see heaven much better
Come up the ladder to the roof
Where we can be
[Mary:] (where we can be)
[Cindy:] (where we can be)
Aahh... closer to heaven

We'll laugh and I tell you the story of love-how it is-and the
Happiness in it baby
We'll combine our thoughts
And together we'll travel the roads to the fountain of lovliness
I will never ever ever leave you leave you alone to wonder
As we go on our love it will grow much stronger and stronger
Don't you wanna go...
Up the ladder to the roof
Where we can see heaven much better
Up the ladder where we can be closer to heaven

Up the...
(up the)

Ooh hoo
Up the
(up the)

Ooh come on and walk
Come on and talk
Come on and sing about love and understanding
