4-18-16: Too much shakin’ going on

Thoughts and prayers go to out all the affected areas and people within from the truly crazy  and yes, unprecedented amount of major earthquake activity that has occurred inside of a weeks’ time ranging from twice in 28 hours in Japan in the same spot in the 7s, Guatemala, Ecuador, Tonga and….  anything else coming?  I hope not but this is the time period we live in. It’s not going to get better.

LOSS OF CULTURE AND SOCIETY:

The first gender neutral bathroom at the White House.

We’re not even a year since the SCOTUS ruling on gay marriage and look at all that’s happened since then.  Now this.

Yes, that’s a third quake in Japan.  Two aftershocks so far.

Compelling drone footage out of Japan of post quake damage.

Ecuador is sadly the even bigger story with 350 dead and counting after a monster 7.8 earthquake hit there. That quake was so powerful that the entire USA continent was shaking for many hours afterwards:  https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/1174

^^ That is an example of what’s happening in Ecquador right now.  Awful. Please pray for these people and if there are solid avenues for charity and support, do as you felt led.

To my friends out there in California? I issue you a friendly heads up.

Business as usual?  I don’t think so and begrudgingly neither do scientists:

Are we all getting used to the words and concepts “unusual” and “unprecedented” yet?
So the quake activity doesn’t fit the conventional wisdom huh?  Imagine that. I feel like I read that in Matthew 24 just  last night…oh wait, I did.

^^ There comes a point  in the Tribulation where the excuses and  “explanations” go away and everyone ultimately knows it’s God vs Satan but before that…. this is I’m sure typical of the kind of thing we’ll continue to see and hear.  They always think they have an answer for everything.   I’m sure some of the explanation for the early plagues and judgements are going to be doozies.

These quakes are “just an unfortunate”  coincidence. Nothing to see here. Move along.

MIDDLE EAST:

http://www.timesofisrael.com/netanyahu-lauds-world-breakthrough-in-tunnel-detection

Israel has figured out a way tech wise to detect the underground tunnels that never stopped and went away so that’s the beginning of the end of that concept.

ISRAEL-HAMAS WAR IMMINENT:

http://www.timesofisrael.com/why-is-israel-sitting-around-waiting-for-the-next-war-with-hamas/

It’s a given that another war and likely the final one between Israel and Hamas is not far off and inevitable. Israel has made no bones about it: The next time is the last time. All that one wonders is: Will it be just these two or will it be something bigger like say, an eventual Psalm 83 scenario?

The reason Israel is waiting is I expect they will allow Hamas to make the mistake of taking the first shot so there are no questions in anyone’s minds about what happened after that.  Of course we can expect the UN and the world to immediately condemn Israel no matter what but I suspect this might be the mindset here.  I doubt Israel would attack first unless they saw a clear and present danger that had to be put down.  Then, of course, they would be immediately condemned for that as well.

Israel has stated repeatedly that the next war with Hamas will be the last war.

Breakings news: Another terrorist attack in Jerusalem. A bus bomb…20 injured…developing.  Just another day, right?  When do they get sick of living like this day-to-day?  When is enough finally enough?

In this same vein:

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4792587,00.html

Israel says they are keeping the Golan Heights no matter what.

Syrian response:  http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Syrian-official-answers-Netanyahu-We-will-use-all-available-means-to-recapture-the-Golan-451484

Syrian foreign minister makes military threats and says they will take it back no matter what.

How long do you all think all of this will hang on a string with everyone playing chicken and who blinks first? Decades?  No way.

TEMPLE MOUNT:

Jordan cancels plans for 24/7 cameras on Temple Mount
Stay of execution. Only because Palestinians objected. No other consideration.  This concept will happen at some point.

RUSSIA:

http://www.wsj.com/articles/russian-fighter-buzzes-u-s-air-force-plane-over-baltic-sea-1460914246?mod=e2tw

Russia and the USA keep having these “brush bys” and I would hazard a guess about what it means past this: Putin has no respect for our leadership starting with the puppet in chief and why should he? He’s doing this because he can. It’s that simple.  I still am not convinced that a war between the Americans and Russians is in the near future because frankly it’s more trouble than it’s worth and like it or lump it: If you crash the USA, you crash the world. If our stock market goes down 50 percent everyone else goes down at least 80.

The New World Order will have one chance and one shot to put their system and their man in. They will have to make it count.  Just remember that.

 

IRAQ:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/04/18/us-to-send-200-more-troops-apache-helicopters-to-iraq.html

Back in the USA goes slowly but surely. What a hopeless mess.

HIGH TECH/BIG BROTHER:

https://www.rt.com/viral/340074-electronic-skin-developed-scientists/

Electronic skin that stars phasing out the middleman smartphone.   We can have digital display on our person and all that goes with it.   Is this the next step towards the eventual Mark of the Beast concept that the Antichrist will make use of?  I have no doubt it’s a stepping stone concept that will folder into a larger scheme. For now we’re still getting the populace conditioned to tatoos, self mutilating, and now things like this but  a couple of months ago I had even posted on this blog that analysts were talking about the “post smartphone world is sooner than anyone thinks” and I think this goes to it.   As appallingly dependent as everyone is on their smartphones now, how do you replace something like that and with what? Brain chips? Virtual reality?  Nothing I will have anything to do with. No thanks.

I have a hard time imagining all this high tech… nothing wrong with it at face value… won’t ultimately be exploited by the world dictator when the times comes and yes, I personally believe the Mark of the Beast will be more than a tattoo.   It’s nothing I would ever argue about with anyone and no, I can’t be dogmatic about it but it’s hard to imagine how the high tech wouldn’t be a factor in the whole thing somehow.   Something to chew on.

HIGH STRANGENESS:

http://www.forbes.com/forbes/welcome/#d325ec8703b0

The Bosnia sphere.  

Let’s face it: No one really has a solid explanation for this thing yet.  I don’t either to be fair.   There are certain kinds of tests and measurements I wish could be done on it but I suspect never will be. I expect this to disappear soon.  I’m amazed it’s lasted in “news circulation” even this long.

https://www.rt.com/viral/339845-universe-expanding-faster-study/

Stories like these make me chuckle.

Scientists are baffled that the pace of the universe expansion isn’t going at the rate they think it should. It’s going “faster than it’s supposed to.”  According to whom?

Better get used to this sort of thing.   To use the old saying: We ain’ seen nuthin’ yet.
