What a mega tsunami in the Atlantic from La Palma would look like (BBC)

Mega-Tsunami. In this scenario, a volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma triggers a massive landslide wherein a sizable portion of the island collapses into the sea, causing a massive mega-tsunami to race across the Atlantic ocean and strike the east coast of the United States, inundating most of New York City, but leaving many buildings intact.

9,300 tremors have rattled the island of El Hierro since July 2011
October 7, 2011 -- CANARY ISLANDS -- Intense swarms of tremors beneath one of the volcanic Canary Islands has placed residents of El Hierro on alert for a possible eruption. Spain's Instituto Geografico Nacional (IGN) reported the 9,300 seismic movements on the island since July 17 have caused measurable changes in the terrain. El Hierro's only eruption during recorded history was in 1793, when the Volcano de Lomo Negro vent rumbled for a month and produced lava flows. Seismologists say they don't know if the rising ball of lava causing the latest rumblings will break through the surface, but they have issued a "yellow" alert as a precaution. IGN Director Maria Jose Blanco told reporters that any eruption would most likely have a "low explosive value." Tremors about 50,000 years ago produced an enormous landslide that cascaded into the ocean, creating a large tsunami that probably reached the North American coast. -- Earth Week

More undersea eruptions off Canary Islands

Two more undersea volcanic eruptions have been identified off the coast of one of the Canary Islands making three in all.

Authorities have kept the island of El Hierro on high alert.

It began at the end of last month with a tremor of 3.4 magnitude prompting the evacuation of around 50 people.

sucks. REPENT! You are all evil liars! Do not be so evil, and be holy.
You are going to get me killed because of the truth of my mouth. I am

Biblical references to the three days of darkness

These are all from the Douay Rheims bible:

And the Lord said to Moses: Stretch out they hand towards heaven: and may there be darkness upon the land of Egypt, so thick that it may be felt. And Moses stretch forth his hand towards heaven: and there came horrible darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days. No man saw his brother, nor moved himself out of the place where he was: but wheresoever the children of Israel dwelt there was light. - Exodus 10:21-23

Now the Lord prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonas: and Jonas was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. - Jonah 2:1

For as Jonas was in the whale's belly three days and three nights: so shall the Son of man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. - Matthew 12:40

And Saul, as yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, And asked of him letters to Damascus, to the synagogues: that if he found any men and women of this way, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. And as he went on his journey, it came to pass that he drew nigh to Damascus; and suddenly a light from heaven shined round about him. And falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? Who said: Who art thou, Lord? And he: I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the goad. And he trembling and astonished, said: Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said to him: Arise, and go into the city, and there it shall be told thee what thou must do. Now the men who went in company with him, stood amazed, hearing indeed a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the ground; and when his eyes were opened, he saw nothing. But they leading him by the hands, brought him to Damascus. And he was there three days, without sight, and he did neither eat nor drink.

By the wrath of the Lord of hosts the land is troubled, and the people shall be as fuel for the fire: no man shall spare his brother. (Isaiah 9:19, some translations use darkened for troubled)

Blow ye the trumpet in Sion, sound an alarm in my holy mountain, let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: because the day of the Lord cometh, because it is nigh at hand, A day of darkness, and of gloominess, a day of clouds and whirlwinds: a numerous and strong people as the morning spread upon the mountains: the like to it hath not been from the beginning, nor shall be after it even to the years of generation and generation. Joel 2:1-2

Nations, nations in the valley of destruction: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of destruction. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars have withdrawn their shining. And the Lord shall roar out of Sion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem: and the heavens and the earth shall be moved, and the Lord shall be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel. Joel 3:14-16

1968 Prophecy by a 90 Year Old Norwegian Woman

This prophecy was given by a 90 year old woman in Norway 42 years ago about events leading up to the second coming of Christ. An Evangelist by the name of Emanuel Minos wrote this prophecy down in 1968 and thought it was so extreme that he put it away. He recently reviewed the prophecy and was amazed that it is not "extreme" anymore--but the norm in our society. Read the prophecy below.

An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos had meetings (services) where she lived. He had the opportunity to meet her, and she told him what she had seen. He wrote it down, but thought it to be so unintelligible that he put it in a drawer. Now, almost 30 years later, he understands he has to share the vision with others.

The woman from Valdres was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation among all who knew her. This is what she saw:

"I saw the time just before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the events with my natural eyes. I saw the world like a kind of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take place just before the return of Jesus, and just before the last calamity happens, a calamity the likes of which we have never before experienced.

She mentioned four waves:

1. "First before Jesus comes and before the Third World War breaks out there will be a ‘détente’ like we have never had before. There will be peace between the super powers in the east and the west, and there will be a long peace. (Remember, that this was in 1968 when the cold war was at its highest. E. Minos) In this period of peace there will be disarmament in many countries, also in Norway and we are not prepared when it (the war) comes. The Third World War will begin in a way no one would have anticipated - and from an unexpected place.

2. "A lukewarmness without parallel will take hold of the Christians, a falling away from true, living Christianity. Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching. They will not, like in earlier times, want to hear of sin and grace, law and gospel, repentance and restoration. There will come a substitute instead: prosperity (happiness) Christianity.

"The important thing will be to have success, to be something; to have material things, things that God never promised us in this way. Churches and prayer houses will be emptier and emptier. Instead of the preaching we have been used to for generations -like, to take your cross up and follow Jesus, - entertainment, art and culture will invade the churches where there should have been gatherings for repentance and revival. This will increase markedly just before the return of Jesus.

3. "There will be a moral disintegration that old Norway has never experienced the likes of. People will live together like married without being married. (I do not believe the concept 'co-habitor'? existed in 1968 - E. Minos.) Much uncleanness before marriage, and much infidelity in marriage will become the natural (the common), and it will be justified from every angle. It will even enter Christian circles and we pet it - even sin against nature. Just before Jesus return there will be TV- programs like we have never experienced. (TV had just arrived in Norway in 1968. E. Minos)

"TV will be filled with such horrible violence that it teaches people to murder and destroy each other, and it will be unsafe in our streets. People will copy what they see. There will not be only one station on TV, it will be filled with stations (She did not know the word 'channel' which we use today. Therefore she called them stations. E. Minos.) TV will be just like the radio where we have many stations and it will be filled with violence. People will use it for entertainment. We will see terrible scenes of murder and destruction one of the other, and this will spread in society. Sex scenes will also be shown on the screen, the most intimate things that takes place in a marriage." (I protested and said, we have a paragraph that forbids this kind of thing. E. Minos.) There the old woman said: "It will happen, and you will see it. All we have had before will be broken down, and the most indecent things will pass before our eyes."

4. "People from poor countries will stream to Europe. (In 1968 there was no such thing as immigration. E. Minos.) They will also come to Scandinavia - and Norway. There will be so many of them that people will begin to dislike them and become hard with them. They will be treated like the Jews before the Second World War. Then the full measure of our sins will have been reached (I protested at the issue of immigration. I did not understand it at the time. E. Minos.)

The tears streamed from the old woman's eyes down her cheeks. "I will not see it, but you will. Then suddenly, Jesus will come and the Third World War breaks out. It will be a short war." (She saw it in the vision.)

"All that I have seen of war before is only child's play compared to this one, and it will be ended with a nuclear atom bomb. The air will be so polluted that one cannot draw one's breath. It will cover several continents, America, Japan, Australia and the wealthy nations. The water will be ruined (contaminated?). We can no longer till the soil. The result will be that only a remnant will remain. The remnant in the wealthy countries will try to flee to the poor countries, but they will be as hard on us as we were on them.

"I am so glad that I will not see it, but when the time draws near, you must take courage and tell this. I have received it from God, and nothing of it goes against what the Bible tells.

"The one who has his sin forgiven and has Jesus as Savior and Lord, is safe."


An elder in the Pentecostal Church at Moss, Norway, Martin Andersen, heard the following prophecy in 1937, in Moss:

"When oil comes out of the North Sea and along the Norwegian coast, things will begin to happen, and the return of Jesus is approaching."

When these words had been proclaimed, people stood up in the congregation and asked the man to sit down and not speak such nonsense. In 1937 it was indeed nonsense to talk about oil being pumped along the Norwegian coast. Today all the world's big oil companies are pumping oil along the coast of Norway. Norway is the world's second greatest exporter of oil - after Saudi Arabia.


The Jesuit and the Miracle

This is an article from Joey Lomanigino.
As the four young seers of Garabandal went into ecstasy on this date in 1961, something wonderful happened that had never occurred before. A young man was present with them, clearly visible in the presence of the Blessed Virgin. As he came to kneel down beside them they heard him say" Miracle, Miracle!"

Our Lady seemed to address him directly, "You will soon be with me" and confided to the girls that this man, Father Luis Maria Andreu Rodamilans S.J. was also in ecstasy and had been granted a vision of the Great Miracle that would occur in their village sometime in the future.

Father Andreu was the son of a very pious Bilbao family. Three of his brothers became Jesuit missionaries. Luis also discerned the call to become a missionary priest and joined the Jesuits with plans of preaching the gospel in China.

A Doctor of Theology, he spoke seven languages fluently and became the resident Professor of Theology at the Jesuit College at Ona, Spain. He remained behind in part to care for his aging mother who had generously given all her children to serve the mission fields of the Roman Catholic Church. After his death his mother would join the Visitation Convent in San Sebastian.

Suffering interiorly for much of the past year, Father Luis made the drive up from Burgos with friends. This was his second and final trip to the village where he had been deeply moved by the apparitions of July 29. He had decided to return one more time before departing on a trip to Germany. Moving with the crowd following behind the ecstatic march, he found himself unexpectedly swept up in the vision and witness to the future Miracle. Many in the crowd heard him cry out in joy and astonishment.

On the trip home, Father Luis confided to his friends, "I am so happy. What a favor the Blessed Virgin has bestowed on me. How fortunate we are to have a mother like her in heaven! There is no reason to fear the supernatural life. The girls have given us an example of how we must act with the Blessed Virgin. There is no doubt in my mind the things involving the girls are true. Why should the Blessed Virgin have chosen us? This is the happiest day of my life." Shortly after making this statement, Father Luis Andreu died in the peace of holy joy before the car reached its destination.

One cannot review the events at Garabandal without acquiring a great impression of the love Our Blessed Mother has for her priest sons. This love was fully absorbed by the visionaries who emerged from the apparitions with a profound desire to pray and offer sacrifices for priests and to foster this practice amongst the laity.They have continued in this devotion all their lives organizing holy hours of prayer for priests in the places where they live.

This call for prayer for priests must be counted among the most important priorities of the Garabandal apparitions. Emphasized repeatedly in the discourses of Our Blessed Mother to the children is the necessity of sacrifices and prayer on the part of faithful Catholics for their priest, whose true vocation is self sacrifice imitating that of Jesus Christ. The failure of a vocation concedes a lack of devotion on behalf of the laity spiritually obliged to uphold these men in their labors.

As Conchita expressed in a 1971 message, "Let us pray a lot for priests. We ourselves are to blame for many priests who are on the road to perdition, because we do not pray enough for them, because we do not sacrifice ourselves, and also because we should be giving an example to those priests who are consecrated to the Blessed Virgin...We have to help those priests...that they may rise and pursue their course."

Many authors on Garabandal believe that the events pertaining to Father Luis Andreu S.J. are meant to honor him as a worthy priest and place high his example of devout ministry for others to follow. When asked in 1966 what the Blessed Virgin desired of priests Conchita replied;

"What the Blessed Virgin wants from the priest first of all is his own sanctification.
-He should fulfill his vows through love of God, and lead many souls to Him through example and prayer, for in our time it is difficult otherwise.
-May the priest be sacrificed through love of souls in Christ!
-May he retire from time to time in silence to listen to God who speaks to him continually.
-May they think a lot about the Passion of Jesus so that their lives are more united to Christ the Priest and thus invite souls to penance and sacrifice, and also make more tolerable to them the cross that Christ sends to us all.
-To speak of Mary who is the surest one to lead us to Christ and also speak about and cause people to believe that there is a heaven, so too there is a hell."

Here in the United States, we have yet to see our first native born priest canonized by the Universal Church. As Americans, we are blessed to have many outstanding priest patrons on the path to sainthood: Archbishop Fulton Sheen, Father Solanus Casey OFM, Father Emil Kapaun, Father Walter Ciszek SJ, Father Patrick Peyton CSC, and Father John Hardon SJ are foremost among many worthy American priests.

We encourage you to offer your needful petitions to any one of these intercessors. Please add your prayers and support to their respective causes that our nation may have the greater grace of their heavenly assistance and our clergy and laity their true and saintly examples of priestly life.

On August 16th, 1961, only a few days after his death, Father Luis Andreu was again present in the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin to the four seers of Garabandal; this time as her heavenly guest. He left this consolation with the girls for his grieving family, "Be happy and content, for I am in Heaven and see you every day."

In a private locution to Conchita in 1964 it was revealed that the body of this son of Saint Ignatius would be found incorrupt on the day following the Great Miracle.

When going to Mass becomes an occasion of sin

This is an interesting column that I thought I'd share today.
When attending Mass becomes an occasion of sin
August 20, 2011
From Jim Baltrinic (slightly edited):

'This post consists of excerpts from a letter I wrote to the pastor of a Catholic parish about a certain incident that occurred at his church. I have omitted all references as to the church's location. The church is semi-circular in design, and we were sitting in the last pew near the center isle, which afforded us a clear view of almost the entire congregation. I started my letter with a compliment as to how nice the newly-remodeled church looked. I then ask the pastor to please consider the following hypothetical situation.

'A priest enters the confessional for the usual Saturday morning or afternoon confession time. During this time a young man enters the confessional. 'Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.' From the sound of the voice on the other side of the screen, the priest surmises that the person is a teenager or young adult. The confession continues: 'It was a week since my last confession. I'm guilty of many lustful thoughts, and I looked at some very immodestly dressed women more times than I should have.'

'The priest asks, 'Were these impure thoughts related to these women you looked at'?

''Yes,' replies the young man.

'The priest: 'Why did you continue to look at them? Why didn't you go someplace else, away from them?'

''I couldn't,' said the young man. 'They were in front of me and I was kind of hemmed in by the crowd.'

'The priest: 'Why were you in such a place to begin with? Do you remember that we are to avoid places that may be an occasion of sin?'

'The young man answers, "Yes, Father, I know that, but I had to be there.'

'The priest, somewhat puzzled, then asks: 'Why did you have to be there, and where were you: at the beach; at a sporting event?'

''No, Father,' said the young man, 'I was at your noon Mass last Sunday, and two scantily-dressed girls were sitting in the pew right in front of me, along with their parents. I couldn't move because my parents were on either side of me.'

'While I said that the above story was hypothetical, in reality it is not. The Mass in question took place this past July at a prominent Catholic parish in a town my wife and I were visiting. It was the main Mass of the day and the church was quite full.

'The young man in the confessional could have been any one of the many young men in the church. The two 'scantily clad' girls were real and were sitting about six pews in front of us with their parents.

'From the area where we were sitting, we observed, in addition to the two girls mentioned above, approximately a dozen very immodestly dressed women, with the majority of these being young girls in their teens and early twenties. Bare backs and shoulders, low-cut tops, strapless sun suits, short shorts, mini-skirts and tight-fitting tops were plainly visible.

'Two years ago, at a parish in northern Virginia, we experienced an almost identical incident at Sunday Mass. We were sitting in our pew when a home-schooling family came in and took a place several pews ahead of us. They had two sons around age 10 and three younger daughters. A few minutes later, two young girls, of about the same age and manner of dress as the two described above, came in and sat in the pew directly in front of this family. However, in this case, the parents quickly recognized the spiritual danger these two improperly dressed girls posed for their children, and they immediately got up and moved to another part of the church.

'It is a sad state of affairs when going to Sunday Mass becomes an occasion of sin. I could go on with more such examples, but I think what I have said is sufficient. What we find more lamentable is the fact that, in many cases, such young girls are in the company of their parents. What does this tell us? Simply this: When it comes to modesty in dress, most parents don't have a clue as to what is right.

'Coincidentally, several days later, as I was about half-way through the composition of my letter to the pastor, my wife saw a notice in the bulletin about appropriate dress in church. The notice was good, especially the part about adults giving good example for young children. It did, however, have two shortcomings which are common to such notices. Many times a bulletin notice can be overlooked, and secondly, the notice called for wearing 'appropriate attire.'

'The problem, as I pointed out above, is that most Catholics have a very poor understanding of what 'appropriate attire' means. When it comes to knowing what is or isn't modest, they have no idea. This is because the Church has been silent on this subject for over 40 years.

'At the beginning of summer there should be a strong sermon on this issue with a clear explanation as to what constitutes 'appropriate attire.' This should be followed up with at least a verbal reminder given once a month from the pulpit. Putting an occasional notice in the bulletin just doesn't do it. It should also be emphasized that the standards for modesty apply to everyday dress, not just in church on Sunday. Mention should also be made about the way many parents dress their little girls in skimpy outfits, thus accustoming them to immodesty at a very early age.

'In regard to this particular topic, I feel I'd be remiss if I failed to mention the disgraceful display of immodesty exhibited by brides and their bridal parties at most Catholic weddings today. At a wedding we recently attended, the comment was made that the bride and bridal party looked more like the Playboy Review than an occasion of Holy Matrimony.

'Let me close with the following thought. Someone once asked the mother of St. Maria Goretti how she was able to raise such a [holy] child. She replied, 'By teaching her the virtue of modesty.' How many Maria Goretti's are parishes and Catholic schools producing today?'

Bayside Apparations and the Comet

The following comes from advocates for the Bayside apparitions which have not been approved by the Church. It present it here because some of the Catholic prophecies about a Comet have in fact come from this source.

Comet Elenin (also known by its astronomical name C/2010 X1)

Here is a timely prophecy about the Warning and Miracle, given by Our Lady at Bayside on December 24, 1973.

Veronica -- Now Our Lady is extending Her Rosary, which was tied to a golden cord braided at Her side, and She`s saying:

Our Lady --"Pray much, My children, for you do not know what lies before you. Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice! I have wandered throughout your world shedding tears, bitter tears of sorrow upon My children who have failed to listen to My pleas. I have come to save you from what you have led yourselves to--your own destruction. I have given you the plan for your salvation. I have set Myself as victim for you before the Father, begging an extension of time for your repatriation. Many We have reached, but many have turned away in mockery and have hardened their hearts and deafened their ears to Our pleas. All Heaven will watch the battle ahead. Many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption."

Veronica -- "Oh! Oh, I see the sky; it`s becoming a very, very bright red, almost an orange, a red-orange. And it`s like I`m suspended, and the light is so bright it hurts my eyes. And I see this huge ball. Now in the center--it`s a gray-colored ball, almost--oh, I don`t know what it`s made of, but a rock-like formation. But as it`s turning now, its beginning to change color, becoming a purplish, hazy, orange-looking ball. And now it`s beginning to gather great speed. And as it`s going faster across the sky, part of it has broken off now, and it`s going now behind the sun. I see the huge ball of the sun; it`s a ball of fire. And this is another ball of fire. And a piece now is broken off, and it`s hitting into the sun. And there--oh! Oh, it`s an explosion. Oh, I can`t look! Oh! Oh!"

Everything seems so still, and I see people now holding onto the chairs in their houses. Everything`s rocking. It`s like the very foundation is rocking in the houses. And they`re all frightened. And many are running into the streets. Oh, the others are running and closing their windows. They`re pulling down the shades. Oh! Oh! Others are looking--I can see them looking through their windows, but they do not go outside. They must not go outside.

I see a great mist coming in the sky, a great mist. And there are pieces of--they appear to be rock or dust rock falling. And the people who are outside, they`re stumbling. Something`s happening to them. They don`t seem to--they`re like drunk; they`re stumbling. And now the ones I`m watching, two of them have fallen. They`ve fallen on their faces now, and they`re trying to get up. Now they`re--they`re falling forward, and they`re not moving.

And I see now this darkness--a great, great mist. And then a deep, musty-looking haze, and it`s now going and passing across the moon. And now there`s no moon; there`s no light. The moon`s absolutely covered; I can`t see it. There`s no light.

Now the sun also seems to be shooting out particles--I don`t know--its particles. And I can see this other ball that looks like a small sun now; it`s coming from behind. And it`s still--it`s twirling, but it is also shooting out particles of, of rock, fiery rock.

Now one piece is very large, and it`s falling down now, and as it--it`s falling into the water. And then the water is just like steaming and fizzling. And there was force, I guess, when it hit the water, because the water is rising very, very high. Oh!

Now it`s growing light. It`s growing light, and Our Lady`s coming forward. And now She`s removing the black, hood-like type of covering from Her head. She says:

Our Lady--"My child, the sight you see is not one that will ever be forgotten by mankind, for not since the days of Noe shall such destruction be visited upon man. You will pray, My child, a constant vigilance of prayer. All My children must now keep a constant vigilance of prayer."


"I cannot stress the fact that I have not come to fill you with fear, but to bring you the facts of what the Father has planned for your chastisement. The Warning which will be sent upon man must be effective; and in the mercy of the Father, a great spectacle will then be placed in the sky for all to see. However, the agents of hell will try to prove--disprove the hand of the Father in this Miracle."


"You must cleanse your souls of all sin, mortal and venial. Come to My Son in belief. Believe what you see at Garabandal, and turn back from your ways that have been created by Satan. Return to the Father; do penance and atonement, for your chastisement will soon follow upon the great spectacle."

This following quote from Isaias could also apply:

"And it shall come to pass, that in that day the Lord shall visit upon the host of heaven on high, and upon the kings of the earth, on the earth... And the moon shall blush, and the sun shall be ashamed, when the Lord of Hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and shall be glorified in the sight of his ancients." (Isaias 24:21, 23)

Comment: "During the Warning God will mount up and glorify himself in the sight of his priests [ancients] in the Eternal City, symbolized by Jerusalem."

Nobel winner Krugman suggests fake alien invasion to boost economy

A video from "Awakening As One" suggested a fake alien invasion for September/October of this year. I was amused to hear Nobel prize winner Paul Krugman suggest this same thing today on CNN.

Fareed Zakaria: Wouldn't John Maynard Keynes say that if you could employ people to dig a ditch and then fill it up again, that's fine, they're being productively employed, they'll pay taxes, so maybe the bigger - maybe Boston's big dig was just fine after all.

Paul Krugman: Think about World War 2. That was not - that was actually negative social product spending, and yet, it brought us out. I mean, probably because you want to put these things together, if we say, look, we could use some inflation. Ken and I are both saying that, which is, of course, anathema to a lot of people in Washington but is, in fact, what basic logic says. It's very hard to get inflation in a depressed economy. But if you had a program of government spending plus an expansionary policy by the Fed, you could get that. So, if you think about using all of these things together, you could accomplish a great deal. If we discovered that space aliens were planning to attack and we needed a massive buildup to counter the space alien threat and really inflation and budget deficits took secondary place to that, this slump would be over in 18 months. And then if we discovered, oops, we made a mistake, there aren't any aliens, we'd be a better –

Ken Rogoff: And we need Orson Welles, is what you're saying.

Paul Krugman: No, that's a – there was a "Twilight Zone" episode like this in which scientists fake an alien threat in order to achieve world peace. Well, this time, we don't need it - we need it in order to get some fiscal stimulus.

Ned Dougherty mentions Three Days of Darkness coming soon

In 1984 Ned Dougherty had a near death experience (NDE), in which he was clinically dead for nearly an hour met a "Lady of Light" who showed him visions of his future life and the future of humanity.
The time has come now for humanity to experience the period of darkness that is necessary for the Father to gain His children's attention. This is the period of darkness that has been prophesied by many of God's children, both in the ancient times as well in these modern times, and assisted by those among you today, who are listening to and promulgating the Messages from Heaven to God's children here on Earth.

The period of darkness that will descend upon the planet Earth is just one phase of the global transformation that will take place for the children of God to put down their worldly activities for the period of time designated by the Father in Heaven for all of God's children to come to His attention and experience the global transformation of your planet from the place of darkness that it has now become to a place of Light and Love of the Father, who wants only the best for His children in the world that He originally created with His Divine Love; a world that has now become completely corrupted by the evil one and through his minions to a place of darkness and despair.

I ask of you my children that you recognize that the predicted period of darkness will be a time for God's children to celebrate and prepare for the coming good works that the Lord has prepared for the world to bring about the necessary changes. But do not despair or overly concern yourselves with the events that are to come!

Yes, there will be periods of darkness and despair, and yes, terrible events will occur during the time of change, but for those of you who are doing God's work and living in His Divine Will, you will cherish these times of darkness as a challenge, for you will steel yourselves in doing God's work during the most turbulent times.

Is this amazing flying cross in space a sign from God?

Some people see this as a flying cross, or perhaps a Star of David.

While scientists don't think it's a comet, they're not exactly sure of the precise origin of the incredible object soaring some 90 million miles from Earth, snapped just a few weeks ago by the Hubble Space Telescope.

More info here:

Words of Jesus to Sister Faustina.... comet shaped like a cross enroute to earth

Saint Faustina Kowalska was a Polish nun who received a series of astounding revelations from Jesus. Her book Divine Mercy In My Soul-Diary of Sister M. Faustina Kowalska is a must read.

These messages are among the most important revelations ever given to the world! Jesus told Saint Faustina that the final age of the world was approaching. The message he was now giving to the world through her was specifically intended to prepare mankind for the end of the world.

 "Before I come as a just judge, I am coming FIRST as "King of Mercy"! Let all men now approach the throne of my mercy with absolute confidence! Some time before the the last days of final justice arrive, there will be given to mankind a great sign in the heavens of this sort: all the light of the heavens will be totally extinguished. There will be a great darkness over the whole earth. Then a great sign of the cross will appear in the sky. From the openings from where the hands and feet of the savior were nailed will come forth great lights - which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will happen before the very final days. It is the sign for the end of the world. After it will come the days of justice! Let souls have recourse to the fount of my mercy while there is still time! Woe to him who does not recognize the time of my visitation."

Video about the Quickening

The Quickening from keith wyatt on Vimeo.

All around the planet hundreds of millions of people are waiting for events to unfold in the year 2012, that they... believe will bring either the birth of a harmonious new reality... or 'the end of the world.

But what if those events were actually to take place THIS YEAR, in 2011?

In Awakening As One's new film "The Quickening" we will explain why so many people have been experiencing the sensation that "Time is Speeding Up"; particularly since the Earthquake in Japan.

And we will also show how research indicates that this accelerated experience of reality could peak sometime around October 28th, 2011; culminating in a global experience of Unity Consciousness, which would then lead to the experience of a harmonious new way of being.

"The Quickening" will also take a look at the unfolding of current events and how they directly relate to Hopi and Mayan Prophecies, indicating that we are on the Cusp of Great Changes, which signify the shifting of the Age... and the Birth of a New World.

The real truth about "Comets" NASA doesn't want you to know

In this excerpt from the July 10, 2011 broadcast of The Crimson Pill radio show - host Antonin Feori explains the true nature of comets. NASA is only the 'civilian' space program - intended to show only the "unimportant," mundane findings of the United States' REAL space program - the secret, Department of Defense space program that was operational even before the creation of NASA. All of the most significant findings made by American space exploration are deemed 'Classified - National Security interest' immediately upon discovery -- and not shared with the very public that pays for the salaries, research, and toys used in the exploration of space.
What you learned about space from high school and university coursework is DEEPLY flawed, and lacking in the completeness of findings our own tax dollars have funded. For a more complete, accurate understanding of how the cosmos really functions - please research the 'Electric Universe' model of cosmology, watch the movie (available on internet) "Thunderbolts of the Gods" which describes the electric universe model, and be sure to visit for more information.

Determining Jesus birth date

From: (chapter 5)

An Exact Date Can Be Picked
There are only three places in the New Testament that record events connected with the birth of Jesus. They are in Matthew’s Gospel, Luke’s Gospel and chapter twelve of the Book of Revelation. This latter book has some information about Jesus’ birth that should be considered, though it must be admitted that all data in the Book of Revelation are highly symbolic. Yet the figurative nature of the book may contain the very clue we need to precisely date the birth of Jesus.

People of the 1st century were very prone to use astronomical signs as having bearing on historical and religious events. They were especially important regarding the births of eminent people, and kings in particular. Because of this, the section about Jesus’ birth in the Book of Revelation may have been significantly related to particular heavenly signs that Jesus had formerly told his disciples to be aware of (Luke 21:11). Let us look at Revelation 12:1–5. It gives us precise indications as to the hour and the day that Jesus was born. This section should be read carefully.
“And there was a great wonder [sign] in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder [sign] in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his head. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron.”
  • Revelation 12:1–5
The scene just described is symbolic. Certainly, this could hardly be a description of the virgin Mary. This “woman” had the heavens associated with her — the Sun, Moon and the Twelve Stars. John said that the display was a wonder (a sign) and that it was “in heaven.” What did he mean by the phrase “in heaven”?

The Bible speaks of three “heavens.” The first is the heaven in which the birds fly and all weather phenomena occur (Jeremiah 4:25; 1 Kings 18:45). The second is that of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars (Genesis 1:17). The third heaven is that where God lives (2 Corinthians 12:2). Which of these heavens is meant?

People of the 1st century would have had no difficulty in interpreting the proper “heaven” that was intended by the apostle John. The Sun, Moon, and stars are not located in our atmosphere where the birds and the clouds exist. They are also not found in the heaven where God has His abode because John himself tells us that the Sun or Moon are not needed in that region (Revelation 21:23).

The only “heaven” that is reasonable is that where the Sun, Moon and the Twelve Stars are located. The Book of Genesis revealed that the celestial bodies were made by God to give signs (Genesis 1:14). Jewish opinion included among these “signs” the astronomical associations between the Sun, Moon, planets, stars and constellations. 15 There can hardly be a doubt that such astronomical “signs” as these are referred to in the Book of Revelation. 16

With these points in mind, we may have some interesting clues that will provide us with the exact time of Jesus’ birth.

Astronomy and the Birth of Jesus
The essential factor in interpreting the symbol of Revelation 12:1–5 is the identification of the woman. What is John signifying by mentioning her? This much is certain: the woman in the first three verses is featured as being in heaven and both the Sun and the Moon are in association with her. After the dragon casts down a third of the stars of heaven (Revelation 12:4), the woman is then found on earth (verses 6 and 14).

But the important factor is the birth of the man-child and the Woman’s relationship with the heavenly signs while she is symbolically in heaven. (The first three verses of Revelation 12 shows the Sun clothing her, the Moon under her feet and the Twelve Stars on her head).

The “birth” of the Messiah is associated with this heavenly spectacle. Since some noted heavenly bodies are a part of the picture, it could well be that John intended the woman to represent a constellation that the two primary luminaries transverse, and that she was a part of the zodiacal system which gives headship to the signs (the Twelve Stars were a “crown” upon her head). Recall that interpreting astronomical signs dominated the thinking of most people in the 1st century, whether the people were Jews or Gentiles. Indeed, the word “sign” used by the author of the Book of Revelation to describe this celestial display was the same one used by the ancients to denote the zodiacal constellations. 17

This is made clearer when one looks closely at the text. Since the Sun and Moon are amidst or in line with the body of this woman, she could be, in a symbolic way, a constellation located within the normal paths of the Sun and Moon. The only sign of a woman which exists along the ecliptic (the track of the Sun in its journey through the stars) is that of Virgo the Virgin. She occupies, in body form, a space of about 50 degrees along the ecliptic. The head of the woman actually bridges some 10 degrees into the previous sign of Leo and her feet overlap about 10 degrees into the following sign of Libra, the Scales. In the period of Jesus’ birth, the Sun entered in its annual course through the heavens into the head position of the woman about August 13, and exited from her feet about October 2.

But the apostle John saw the scene when the Sun was “clothing” or “adorning” the woman. This surely indicates that the position of the Sun in the vision was located somewhere mid-bodied to the woman, between the neck and the knees. The Sun could hardly be said to clothe her if it were situated in her face or near her feet.

The Sun Clothed the Woman
The only time in the year that the Sun could be in a position to “clothe” the celestial woman called Virgo (that is, to be mid-bodied to her, in the region where a pregnant woman carries a child) is when the Sun is located between about 150 and 170 degrees along the ecliptic. This “clothing” of the woman by the Sun occurs for a 20-day period each year. This 20 degree spread could indicate the general time when Jesus was born. In 3 B.C.E., the Sun would have entered this celestial region about August 27 and exited from it about September 15.

If John in the Book of Revelation is associating the birth of Jesus with the period when the Sun was mid-bodied to this woman called Virgo (and this is no doubt what he means), then Jesus would have to be born within that 20-day period. From the point of view of the Magi who were astrologers, this would have been the only logical sign under which the Jewish Messiah might be born, especially if He was to be born of a virgin. Even today, astrologers recognize that the sign of Virgo is the one which has reference to a messianic world ruler to be born from a virgin. 18

This heavenly woman called Virgo is normally depicted as a virgin holding in her right hand a green branch and in her left hand a sprig of grain. In the Hebrew Zodiac, she at first (in the time of David) denoted Ruth who was gleaning in the fields of Boaz. She then later became the Virgin when the prophecy of Isaiah 7:14 was given in the time of King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah. This Virgin held in her left hand a sprig of grain. This was precisely where the bright star called Spica is found. Indeed, the chief star of the constellation Virgo is Spica.

Bullinger, in his book The Witness of the Stars (pp. 29–34), said that the word “Spica” has, through the Arabic, the meaning “the branch” and that it symbolically refers to Jesus who was prophetically called “the Branch” in Zechariah 3:8 and 6:12. And Bullinger (and Seiss in his book The Gospel in the Stars) maintains that this sign of Virgo designates the heavenly witness for the birth of the Messiah (Jesus). They say that Virgo should actually begin the zodiacal signs which give the story of the Messiah. This may be. The apostle John may have given the same indication as far as the first full sign of the zodiac is concerned. He depicted the woman of Revelation as having a crown of Twelve Stars on her head.

This could well show that the woman (Virgo) is the constellation of headship for all the twelve signs. The “head” position of Virgo is located within the last ten degrees of Leo. It was in this very region where the story of the career of the Messiah would begin that Bullinger and Seiss referred to. Thus, the story of Jesus and his mission on earth, as related by these heavenly symbols, should logically begin with his birth from a virgin and conclude with him being crowned king in the final sign of Leo the Lion (with its chief star being Regulus ― the King star). This is no doubt what the apostle John was trying to show through the symbols found in Revelation 12.

The birth of this child in Revelation 12 (whom John identified with Jesus) should have occurred while the Sun was “clothing” the woman, when the Sun was mid-bodied to Virgo. This period of time in 3 B.C.E. covered 20 days (August 27 to September 15). If Jesus were born within that 20-day period, it would fit most remarkably with the testimony of Luke (relative to the birth of John the Baptist and the eighth course of Abijah). Indeed, the chronological indications associated with the priestly course of Abijah place Jesus’ birth exactly within this period. But there is a way to arrive at a much closer time for Jesus’ birth than a simple 20-day period. The position of the Moon in John’s vision actually pinpoints the nativity to within a day ― even to within a period of an hour and a half (within 90 minutes) on that day. This may appear an absurd assessment on the surface, but it is quite possible.

The key is the Moon. The apostle said it was located under her feet.” What does the word “under” signify in this case? Does it mean the woman of the vision was standing on the Moon when John observed it or does it mean her feet were positioned slightly above the Moon? John does not tell us. This, however, is not of major consequence in using the location of the Moon to answer our question because it would only involve the difference of a degree or two.

The Moon travels about 12 degrees a day in its course through the heavens. This motion of one or two degrees by the Moon represents on earth a period of only two to four hours. This difference is no problem in determining the time of Jesus’ birth. What is vital, however, is that this shows the Moon as a New Moon.

The Precise Position of the Moon is Important
Now note this point. Since the feet of Virgo the Virgin represent the last 7 degrees of the constellation (in the time of Jesus this would have been between about 180 and 187 degrees along the ecliptic), the Moon has to be positioned somewhere under that 7 degree arc to satisfy the description of Revelation 12. But the Moon also has to be in that exact location when the Sun is mid-bodied to Virgo.

In the year 3 B.C.E., these two factors came to precise agreement for about an hour and a half, as observed from Palestine or Patmos, in the twilight period of September 11th The relationship began about 6:15 p.m. (sunset), and lasted until around 7:45 p.m. (moonset). This is the only day in the whole year that the astronomical phenomenon described in the twelfth chapter of Revelation could take place.

This also shows one other important point. The Moon was in crescent phase. It was a New Moon day, the start of a new lunar month. (See plates one and two below which show early depictions of the celestial scene of Revelation 12:1–3 and how the Moon is shown to be in its crescent phase.)

Modern Man and Astronomical Motions
While ordinary people in modern times who are not professional astronomers have little knowledge of the solar, lunar, planetary and stellar motions, the people from the 1st century up to the Industrial Revolution were well accustomed to them. Even people of little education were generally knowledgeable of the main motions of the astronomical bodies — even more than most college-educated people today. When anyone of early times read Revelation 12:1–3, an astronomical relationship was realized at once. There was no doubt that a New Moon display was being shown to them. And when the woman of the sign was interpreted as Virgo the Virgin, and with the Sun mid-bodied to the Virgin, they clearly saw a New Moon day occurring sometime in late summer.

The apostle John said this heavenly relationship occurred at the time of Jesus’ birth. And in 3 B.C.E. this exact combination of celestial factors happened just after sunset only on one day of the year. It was on September 11th. It could not have occurred at any other time of the year. Indeed, even one day before ― on September 10 ― the Moon would have been located above the Virgin’s feet with the crescent not visible, while one day farther ― on September 12 ― the Moon had moved too far beyond the feet of the Virgin, at least 25 diameters of the Moon east of her feet. Thus, only one day applies. That day was just after sunset on September 11th, 3 B.C.E.

The Exact Day of Jesus’ Birth
The apostle John is presenting to his readers something of profound significance in a symbolic way. Revelation 12:1–3 shows a New Moon day that could only be observed from earth just after sunset, and the day was September 11th. This fits well with Luke’s description of the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Recall that,
“there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over the flock by night ... and the angel said ... unto you is born this day [which began at sundown] in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”
  • Luke 2:8–11
Jesus was born in early evening, and Revelation 12 shows it was a New Moon day.

What New Moon could this have been? The answer is most amazing. It is almost too amazing! September 11, 3 B.C.E. was Tishri One on the Jewish calendar. To Jewish people this would have been a very profound occasion indeed. Tishri One is none other than the Jewish New Year’s day (Rosh ha-Shanah, or as the Bible calls it, The Day of Trumpets ― Leviticus 23:23–26).

It was an important annual holy day of the Jews (but not one of the three annual festivals that required all Palestinian Jews to be in Jerusalem).
What a significant day for the appearance of the Messiah to arrive on earth from the Jewish point of view! And remarkably, no other day of the year could astronomically fit Revelation 12:1–3. The apostle John is certainly showing forth an astronomical sign which answers precisely with the Jewish New Year Day. John would have realized the significance of this astronomical scene that he was describing.

In the next chapter I will show the symbolic and religious meaning of this New Year’s day as interpreted by the Jews (and consequently by the apostles and early Christians) as it relates to the Messiah and his kingship. The information may provide a better understanding why the early apostles of the 1st century, and many Jews and Gentiles, so quickly came to accept Jesus as the Messiah.

Whatever the case, the historical evidence supports the nativity of Jesus in 3 B.C.E., at the beginning of a Roman census, and (if we use the astronomical indications of the Book of Revelation) his birth would have occurred just after sundown on September 11th, on Rosh ha-Shanah, the Day of Trumpets — the Jewish New Year Day for governmental affairs. There could hardly have been a better day in the ecclesiastical calendar of the Jews to introduce the Messiah to the world from a Jewish point of view; and no doubt this is what the apostle John clearly intended to show by the sign he recorded in Revelation 12.

Earthquakes greater than 5.0 since January 2008 sorted by latitude

What is happening around 37.75 N degrees lattitude?

Bearing in mind the previous posts today, about the eruption of Mt. Etna and the earthquake in Spain. We ask ourselves what is happening along the 37.7N latitude, and are these events connected.

Mt. Etna
37.74° N

Spain Earthquakes
37.699 N
37.693 N

Is there magma moving from Spain east towards Etna. The Italian earthquake watch continues.

What other locations are around this latitude?

Fukishima (location of the critical Nuclear reactor)

Fort Knox
37.8 N

San Francisco

New Madrid, MO (epicenter of the 1811-1812 New Madrid earthquakes isn't too far either)

Just a reminder, this year is the 200th anniversary of the New Madrid earthquake with events planned, including a major FEMA exercise next week.

Edited to add: I noticed this post was copied to GLP without credit or a linkback. Thanks for that. :(

Also added: I just got a message that the booms last night in Virginia that I mentioned in an earlier post today were around the same latitude. As well, the distance of one degree latitude is approximately 69 miles.

Mysterious boom rattled Virginia last night

According to the Washington Post today, there was a mysterious boom that rattled Virginia last night.

A loud boom rattled Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore but the source is a mystery.

Media outlets report that the mystery boom occurred Tuesday night. It was reported in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Suffolk.

Some residents reported that the disturbance shook their homes.

The U.S. Geological Survey’s reports show no seismic activity at the time.

The full article can be found at the Washington Post website.

Church Tower falls during Earthquake in Lorca, Spain

One of two small earthquakes in Lorca, Spain that happened moments ago.

UPDATE 17:12 UTC : We are trying to get some more news close to the epicenter, but we can predict that this last shock will probably be very damaging. Too soon to predict any injuries.

UPDATE 17:08 UTC : This last earthquake was measured by GFZ at a magnitude of 5.0 also at a depth of 5 km. These values are better than USGS, but have still a damaging potential.

UPDATE 17:06 UTC : A much STRONGER 5.3 magnitude also shallow earthquake just happened in the same area

UPDATE 17:03 UTC : The damage will probably be limited but we are passing it to our readers as we gather it from local sources.

UPDATE 16:59 UTC : Lorca has called the state of emergency in the city following some Spanish sources.

UPDATE 16:56 UTC : Private houses and city buildings have been damaged during the earthquake.

UPDATE 16:54 UTC : An elderly home has been evacuated in Lorca after the earthquake

UPDATE 16:50 UTC : Felt experiences are arriving at EMSC (European Seismological service).
Below the ones we found the best describing the sitiuation :

@ Aguilas : 33 km from the epicenter – Tengo una terraza grande y en ella se aprecian algunas pequeñas grietas (small cracks on the terraces) . Muchas de ellas ya estaban, pero creo que hay alguna nueva aunque no podría afirmarlo con rotundidad.
Por la zona de España en la que vivo, se que es zona de cierto riesgo sísmico (we live in a seismic risky area) . La verdad es que he notado varios, no sabría cuantos, movimientos sísmicos en mi vida, pero creo que es el mas “fuerte”, por así decirlo, que he experimentado en cuarenta años que vivo en Águilas. (living 40 years in Aguilas, this person has witnessed tens of small vibrations but he says that today’s quake was the strongest he ever felt)

@ Murcia : 57 km from the epicenter – A little vibration on windows and doors. Soft furniture movement.

UPDATE 16:43 UTC : GFZ, the German seismological service reports a Magnitude of 4.7 at a depth of 5 km, which is a little more dangerous for small damage than the values from EMSC and USGS

UPDATE 16:41 UTC : On March 29, 1954 a massive 7.9 earthquake caused a lot of damage at Malaga. This earthquake was felt in Madrid, Granada, Cadiz and even in Tangier. The earthquake was NOT devastating because it occurred at a depth of 640 km (normally harmless).

UPDATE 16:35 UTC : Based on historic earthquake maps, the area has regular earthquakes from in between 3.5 and 4.5

UPDATE 16:31 UTC : Epicenter is below San Julian approx. 10 km from Lorca. Lorca has a population of 90,924.

A moderate but very shallow earthquake occurred in the late afternoon near the city of Lorca and 55 km from Murcia in Spain. This earthquake will probably not lead to damage or injuries, but local people will certainly have been frightened by the shaking.

Most important Earthquake Data:
Magnitude : 4.5
UTC Time : Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 15:05:12 UTC
Local time at epicenter : Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 05:05:12 PM at epicenter
Depth (Hypocenter) : 10 km
Geo-location(s) :
55 km (34 miles) SW of Murcia, Spain
120 km (74 miles) NE of Almeria, Spain

Two Earthquakes hit Spain, 4.5 and 5.2

Not Italy like the Bendandi story said, but these two could be foreshocks for something bigger.

Some Twitter comments from acarrionm include the fact that five people died, one of them a child. He was on the 11th floor when it happened but didn't think it was as bad as they see now.

Edgar Cayce and today's Mt. Etna eruption

There's some news that Mt. Etna in Italy is erupting today (May 11, 2011).

This prediction dated until 1998, but with the flooding of the Midwest, it seems timely.

Edgar Cayce predicted that dramatic physical changes would affect the Earth in the years 1958-1998 and would begin with the eruption of Mt. Etna.

The Great Lakes would empty into the Gulf of Mexico linked with a time when ancient repositories would be discovered as people reached the appropriate level of consciousness. The three repositories mentioned are Egypt, the Bimini area, and the Yucatan.

After activities by Mt. Vesuvius, Mt. Pelee, the southern coast of California, the areas between Great Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada, we may expect, within the three months following, inundation by earthquakes, more in the Southern than the Northern Hemisphere. Portions of the New York, or New York City itself, will disappear as well as the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia.

Land will appear in the Atlantic and Pacific. Rise of Atlantis. And what is the coast line now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many battle fields of the present will be oceans, seas,the bays, the lands over which 'The New World Order' will carry on their trade as one with another.

The waters of the lakes will empty into the Gulf. It would be well if the waterway were prepared, but not for that purpose for which it is at present being considered. Then the area where I am now located (Virginia Beach) will be among the safety lands, as will be portions of what is now Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and much of the southern portion of Canada and the eastern portion of Canada, while the western land -- much of that is to be disturbed as, of course much in other lands.

The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea.

The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye.

When there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that's almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Etna area, then we many know it has begun.

There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and there will be the shifting then of the poles - where there has been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow.

Strifes will arise through the period. Watch for them near the Davis Strait [between Greenland and Canada] in the attempts there for the keeping of the life line to land open. Watch for them in Libya and in Egypt, in Ankara and in Syria, through the straits about those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.

Japan quake of March 2011 shifted the country; Towns now flood at high tide

This is an interesting post from the Associated Press. The recent earthquake in Japan shifted the level of the country so during periods of high tide certains parts of the country flood.

When water begins to trickle down the streets of her coastal neighborhood, Yoshiko Takahashi knows it is time to hurry home.

Twice a day, the flow steadily increases until it is knee-deep, carrying fish and debris by her front door and trapping people in their homes. Those still on the streets slosh through the sea water in rubber boots or on bicycle.

"I look out the window, and it's like our houses are in the middle of the ocean," says Takahashi, who moved in three years ago.

The March 11 earthquake that hit eastern Japan was so powerful it pulled the entire country out and down into the sea. The mostly devastated coastal communities now face regular flooding, because of their lower elevation and damage to sea walls from the massive tsunamis triggered by the quake.

USGS excluding aftershocks from alerts

An interesting email received today from USGS on May 10, 2011. This message is posted here.

Date: Tue, May 10, 2011 at 11:42 AM
Subject: ENS change announcement

After the magnitude 9.0 Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011, a change was made in ENS to enable the 'aftershock exclusion' feature by default. This filters out notifications for all but the largest aftershocks, eliminating the large deluge of aftershock notifications after a large mainshock.

If you want to check your settings or turn 'aftershock exclusion' off, (thereby potentially receiving a large number of aftershock notifications) you can log in to your ENS account and do this from the 'Account Preferences' tab on the main ENS webpage.

Thank you,

Is a violent earthquake expected in Rome next week?

Translated from Italian at this site
Raffaele Bendandi ... the man who predicts earthquakes.

In 2011 a violent earthquake is expected in Rome.

Can we predict earthquakes? Bendandi claimed to be able to predict earthquakes - Raffaele Bendandi, also known as the man of earthquakes, was born in Faenza, 17 October 1893.

Bendandi said he had discovered how to produce earthquakes and said to be able to predict an earthquake.

He was born to a humble family in the area traditionally known as Old Spinning Mill, which could not afford to continue with higher education (he finished elementary school, a course for technical drawing and became an apprentice to a watchmaker), nevertheless all 'age of 10 he was already fond of astronomy and geophysics, as to build himself a telescope and some gyroscopes (in fact he was a wood sculptor by profession).

Following the earthquake of Messina on 28 December 1908, became interested in earthquakes, and succeeded, according to him, even to predict them.
After his experience as an apprentice to a watchmaker, he enrolled in an Art School, to become a carver of religious statues and chandeliers, Emilia. During World War I served as a mechanic in an air squadron. Bendandi You can define the self as a researcher, who in 1920 formulated his theory of "seismogenic". His theory has its origins in a walk along the beach, while serving on guard during his naja: in 1919 he senses that the earth's crust, as well as the tides, is subject to the effects of gravitational pull of the moon.

His theory for the prediction of earthquakes (never recognized by the scientific community) was in fact based on the fact that the moon and other planets (along with the Sun) are the cause of the movements of the crust, which actually swollen, deformed and evokes the Earth's crust, with timing and rhythm-dependent position of celestial bodies.

He went on with his studies also using a mini laboratory moved into a deep cave of 'Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines. One of his first forecast the involuntarily made ​​for the earthquake of Marsica January 13, 1915, when he realized that 27 October of the previous year had left a note in this regard.

Until then very few people believe his theories, November 23, 1923 before the notary of Faenza decided to write his own prediction: January 2, 1924 an earthquake will occur in the Marche. The earthquake actually occurred, but two days later. However, the Corriere della Sera devoted the front page, calling him to predict earthquakes, and his fame grew so also internationally.

In his studies, was also in charge of astronomy, geophysics, magnetic, cosmic and atmospheric studies, and atmospheric radioactivity in relation to his personal atomici. Oltre purposes, its main activity was a carpenter, built with this task and managed to sell some of its models of seismographs, even in America. He succeeded in his small to acquire even a small scientific library.

During the Fascist period, namely in 1927 was appointed first by Mussolini Knight of the Order of the Crown of Italy, but was warned by publishing further predictions on earthquakes in Italy, on pain of exile, in reality, he continued to do so, but on other American newspapers.
After studying it thoroughly, in 1931 the Pontifical Academy Bendandi entrusts the method he discovered to play the eleven-year cycle of the Sun, and can result in self-financing to publish "A fundamental principle of the Universe," where he describes his previous discovery.
During his life, namely in 1959, Bendandi also discovered a new planet in the solar system between Mercury and the Sun, which he named after his hometown, Faenza.

Only later, in 1972 the American astronomer Wood and in 1976 the British astronomer Smith brought forward the method developed by Bendandi for the prediction of earthquakes, going to improve the analysis and results.
An earthquake in Friuli in 1976 was provided by his theory, he unsuccessfully tried to notify the competent authorities, which treated him as a charlatan.

He was found dead, perhaps for reasons mysterious, November 3, 1979, at his home observatory in Faenza Via Manara 17.
Bendandi, through his method, he also predicted a devastating earthquake in the city of Rome and surrounding areas for the day May 11, 2011, and another earthquake in size even more apocalyptic for between 5-6 April 2012, when several earthquakes hit patchy throughout the world.

In this last prediction, among others, many also see the catastrophic Maya prophecies for 2012.

According to one other article that I've read in the Italian press, there may be no foundation to the May 11, 2011 date and it is only a story propagated by the Internet.

Interesting to note that April 6th, 2012 is the Good Friday. This might be the perfect opportunity for a "Great Warning" for the entire world.

May update for a 2011 Great Warning

Well, it's now May 5th, 2011. We are one week away from the last strong candidate for a Great Miracle in 2011, St. Pancras.
Conchita indicated that the Great Warning would happen within one year in advance of the Great Miracle and that she would announce the Great Miracle eight days in advance of it happening.
She has been forbidden by the Blessed Virgin to disclose it until eight days before it is to happen.
At this point, despite all the upheavals in the Middle East and the sense of foreboding in the air, it appears that the Great Miracle is not destined to happen this year.

Bin Laden and the Beast from the Sea

Food for thought as few days after the news of Bin Laden's death with a mortal head wound and his burial at sea.
And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea,
Rev. 13:1 (Douay Rheims)
And I saw one of his heads as it were slain to death: and his death's wound was healed. And all the earth was in admiration after the beast.
Rev. 13:3 (Douay Rheims)

Over the past few days, the original details have changed several times. I hope there's truth to the entire story and Osama doesn't figuratively "return from the grave".

Vatican: bin Laden's death is a cause for reflection, not rejoicing

According to an article from the Catholic News Service
The Vatican said the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, a man who sowed division and hatred and who caused "innumerable" deaths, should prompt serious reflection about one's responsibility before God, not rejoicing.
 Two quote from Michael Moore on Twitter
From the Book of Ezekiel: "As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people" - Ezekiel 33:11
Anybody up for one more Bible quote? "Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice" - Proverbs 24:17

TIme Monks predict trouble starting this week

A note from George Ure this morning, the web bot project is predicting that this week is the week that everything (financially) starts to blow up. According to Ure,
Because the word amongst time monks as the weekend closed up was that today, or tomorrow, is turning into the odds-on favorite for a restart of the global financial collapse.
This is based on two things, the price of silver (now approaching $50/oz) and
One of the last temporal markers before that event fires off should be the discussion in national media of "bulldozing homes" and sure enough, the last linguistic tumblers have fallen in that lock with discussions, among others, of "Owners protest UDOT bulldozing homes in WVC" and some discussion of tearing down excessive housing on a segment on one of the financial talking-heads channels.

So, when silver was up earlier, as much as $3.42 an ounce to $49.85 at KitCo (chart above on the site), word among time monks was that it's indicative of very high immediacy values that are piling up and further: today and tomorrow is likely to "...cause 'consternation among 'authorities' relative to financial abstractions such as derivatives..."
The financial world doesn't end this week. Nope - gonna stretch out a good while because the next thing along to club you're personal net worth and retirement dreams will be...

"...May 7 through 9 are a trifecta of perfect storms. Would not find it surprising to see the FED cabal in some major announcement desperate to stave off globally affecting default...."

The bad news? Oh, that, according to word among the time monks, will be the partial collapse of government functions that accompanies that kind of financial displacement and follows (as night does day) the costs of the coming 'fed-saves-world' attempt start sinking in.
Standard caveat applies
For those not familiar, this outlook is not financial advice. It's an expectation-set based on a new science of predictive linguistics pioneered by Clif High of
To balance the arguement, Karl Denninger at Market-Ticker comments about the rising price of silver.
The problem ... is that the premise in buying something that guards against debasement is that you do not want anything that has leverage inherently in it. ... If we go against the dollar itself (/DX) it's a ~4% move. Predicated on that Silver is geared at TWENTY FIVE TO ONE.
In a later post in the same thread he adds
They are exhibiting insane leverage, which is NOT what you want in such a hedge. They are speculative and levered instruments, which make them EXCELLENT trading vehicles but a terrible means of "protecting" one's wealth.
Whatever happens, tomorrow's first-ever Federal Reserve press conference should be interesting.

New prediction in 2010 given to 1990 Tower of Light prophecy receiver

From Spirit Daily

"The trials of your time now head to the crescendo of meaning, whereby to each will be shown the imperfection of the past and the need for purification of the future. In these transgressions is found the enemy of Creation, and the one who seeks to install his spirit as the spirit that conquers for all time. It is a final battle in which the trials of the future will serve as engagements complete unto themselves. Those who choose to ignore the dynamic of spiritual interaction will find themselves in a very confused state that will lead to more conflict. While love prevails, so does courage, and so does the uncovering of those spirits which now install themselves as guardians for those who have invited into their hearts falsity. The angels stand ready to assist those who unleash power with humility and belief. Only those in union with God will be able to see in the darkness which so many expected and that already is upon the earth. New Mexico I have ordained as a beacon of light and also the place near the water where the cross stands. In this time, expect the error of premature expectation, but not [error in] the truth of the expectation itself. For these times, you have the Rosary, and even more so, the praise. In union with God comes all protection, as the dark spirits are now allowed to materialize in full due to the pretense and aspirations of man. Not until the initial event will the curtain be drawn that reveals the entirety of the plan, and even then, it will be parted only slowly, in the woes of purification."

The Warning – Second Coming Close – Chance to Save your souls

By an anonymous married woman and mother of a young family at the site below.
Received Wednesday 12th January 2011 3pm

My daughter My message yesterday was harsh. Many reading it will say “this is not the way the Lord speaks”. But how do they know? It is because of the suffering that is being endured by My beloved children at the hands of others that I must speak out. I speak out because of My Divine Mercy in order to help save you My children so that we can be united as one Holy Family in the New Paradise. I do not want to lose one single soul to The Deceiver. It is important that My voice is heard.

Non Believers find it so difficult
I understand that for many of My children, especially those non-believers, they find it very difficult to believe in the next life. They are so conditioned by wordly matters that, in their struggle to survive, they have neglected their spirituality to such an extent they don’t believe that there is another life at all. They now need to consider. They believe that all ends after death and that the only world they need to worry about is the one they live in right now. How I despair for these misguided souls. If they could only experience a glimpse of what Paradise provides they would spend their days in prayer and adoration to Me and My Eternal Father in praise and thanks.

This new world that I have promised them is a reality. Praise to the believers who have never forgotten this fact and who still pray to Me every day. How I love My followers. But how I suffer for them too. These devout followers do everything they can to convince others of My existence. Then they are laughed at and scorned on My behalf. How this breaks My heart.

How the departed pine for all those left with no faith
How your loved ones pine for you all on the other side non-believers! For those of you whose loved ones are at peace in My Father’s Kingdom they constantly pray to intercede on your behalf. What you do not realise is this. If you take time to speak with Me privately – in your own words – and ask Me for guidance, even if your faith is lukewarm, then I will respond. And you will know that I have responded. Turn to Me now children. In your own words and ask Me to restore your faith.

Consider My teachings through these messages and through the Bible and remind yourselves what way you must live your lives. I will, through My mercy, reveal to you your grievances against My teachings and every sin and offense you have committed throughout your life very soon.

Not Judgement day but a taste of what it will be like
This is an act of Mercy on My part. You will see your sins and understand immediately how they appear to Me. Instantly you will understand clearly how offensive they are and wrong. This is your chance children to repent. This is not Judgement day but a taste of what it will be like.

Out of mercy you are being given the greatest gift of all before Judgement Day – the chance to repent and change your life before the Final Day – the time when I arrive back on this earth. I come as you know, not as a Saviour then, but as a just judge. That time is now close My children. Do not fear. I love you all. You are in My heart. Allow Me enter yours now and let Me guide you to My Father’s Kingdom. Never fear death. Death will simply be a doorway into a new beautiful life of blissful eternity full of love, peace and happiness.

Life on earth only a passage in time
Your life on earth is simply a passage in time. It can be full of love, joy, pain, rejection, fear, anger, despair, frustration and sadness. But it is only when you turn to Me that your pain will ease. Blessed are those who suffer and especially in My name for you will be glorified in my Father’s Kingdom. Blessed too are those who turn back to Me for there will be great rejoicing in Heaven.

You will be welcomed into My New Paradise. Pray for your souls and those of your families now. The Warning will take place soon. Then you will know the truth. You will then have the chance to redeem yourself in my eyes.

I love you all. I rejoice because I know that so many more of My children will now turn back to Me and God, the Eternal Father as the time for the end times draws very close now. Be prepared.

Your loving saviour Jesus Christ


Divine Mercy Sunday and the Great Warning

On May 1st, 2011, Pope John Paul II will be beatified. He was reportedly the confessor to Sister Faustina, which makes this day a possible candidate for the Great Warning.

About Sister Faustina
On October 5, 1938 a young nun by the name of Sister Faustina (Helen Kowalska) died in a convent of the Congregtation of Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Cracow, Poland. She came from a very poor family that had struggled hard on their little farm during the terrible years of World War 1. She had only three years of very simple education. Hers were the humblest tasks in the convent, usually in the kitchen or the vegetable garden, or as a porter.

On Feb. 22, 1931, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, bringing with him a wonderful message of Mercy for all humanity. Sister Faustina tells us in her diary under this date: "In the evening when I was in my cell, I became aware of the Lord Jesus clothed in a white garment. One hand was raised in blessing, the other was touching the garment at the breast. From the opening in the garment at the breast there came forth two large rays, one red, and the other pale. In silence I gazed intently at the Lord; my soul was overwhelmed with fear, but also with great joy. After a while Jesus said to me: " paint an image according to the pattern you see, with this inscription: 'Jesus, I trust in you. ' "
Some time later, Our Lord again spoke to her: " The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous; the red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of my most tender Mercy at that time when My agonizined heart was opened was opened by a lance on the Cross.... Fortunate is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him"

About the End Times, Sister Faustina wrote
Jesus said " Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My Mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable Mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it , will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My Mercy; let them profit from the Blood and water which gushed forth for them........ before I come as the just one, I first open wide the gates of My Mercy. He who does not pass through the gates of My Mercy must pass through the gates of justice.

Before I come as the just judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort:

All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be a great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Saviour were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day."

On a later occasion Our Lady appeared to St Faustina and said the following words: "I gave the Saviour to the world. As for you, you have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful saviour, but as a just Judge. O how terrible is that day! Determined is the day of justice, the day of divine wrath. The angels tremble before it. Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still time for mercy. If you keep silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day."
