Why is the crust of the Earth shaking so violently all of a sudden?
Over the past 48 hours, there have been five major
earthquakes globally, and one prominent seismologist has declared that “catastrophic mega earthquakes” could be on the way. In fact, seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado has made headlines all over the world by warning
that “current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude”. If his projections are accurate, our planet could be on the precipice of a wave of natural disasters unlike anything that any of us have ever
Since the beginning of 2016, south Asia has been hit by an unusually high number of large earthquakes, and this has scientists groping for an explanation. The following comes from the Express…
Scientists say there has been an above average number of significant earthquakes across south Asia and the Pacific since the start of the year.
The increased frequency has sparked fears of a repeat of the Nepal quake of 2015, when 8,000 people died, or even worse.
Roger Bilham, seismologist of University of Colorado, said: “The current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude.
“And if they delay, the strain accumulated
during the centuries provokes more catastrophic mega earthquakes.”
A single magnitude 8.0 earthquake in a populated area would be a disaster of historic proportions.
If we were to see four of them like Roger
Bilham is projecting, that would be a complete and utter nightmare.
It is important to keep in mind that a magnitude 8.0 earthquake would be many, many times larger than the twin earthquakes that hit Japan earlier today…
A devastating 6.4-magnitude earthquake has struck Japan hours after a first which killed at least three and injured 19 others.
The quakes, which struck the south-western island
of Kyushu, leveled more than a dozen homes, sparked fires and trapped several people under collapsed buildings.
Around 350 military personnel have been dispatched to aid the rescue effort, said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.
The first earthquake, measuring 6.5-magnitude, hit the south-east Asian country late on Friday, local time, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.
On Thursday we also saw a magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit Vanuatu, and a magnitude 5.9 earthquake shook the southern Philippines…
A 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Mindanao early Thursday, April 14, seismologists said, with no damage or casualties immediately reported
and no tsunami warning issued. The quake occurred at 2:21 am (1821 GMT Wednesday) off the coast of Zamboanga del Norte, with its epicenter at a depth of 15 kilometers, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.
And of course on Wednesday a huge magnitude 6.9 earthquake caused tremendous devastation in Myanmar…
6.9 earthquake struck Myanmar on Wednesday, causing tremors around the region, including in neighboring Bangladesh where scores were reported injured in stampedes and buildings were damaged. The quake, which took place at a depth of 134 kilometers (83 miles),
hit some 400 kilometers northwest of Myanmar’s capital Naypyidaw, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS), and was also felt in parts of India and China. There were no immediate reports of casualties, although the region where the earthquake hit
has poor communications infrastructure like many of Myanmar’s outlying provinces.
So why is this happening?
Why is Asia shaking so violently all of a sudden?
And does this shaking bode ill for other areas along
the “Ring of Fire” including the west coast of the United States?
I think that it is important to point out that all of this shaking did not just begin this week. In fact, ever since the start of this calendar year there has been a
lot of unusual earthquake activity all over Asia…
Just four days
ago, on April 10, six people died in Pakistan when a 6.6-magnitude quake hit Kabul with aftershocks in India
Two days before, on April 8, there was a magnitude 4.2 earthquake in Nepal.
Nepal had suffered a larger 5.5 magnitude
one on February 22.
A month before, on January 20, there was a 6.1-magnitude earthquake in China, and 16 days earlier 11 people died when a 6.7-magnitude earthquake hit Manipur in India.
In addition, let us not forget
about all of the volcanic eruptions that have been in the news in recent weeks.
According to Volcano Discovery, 38 volcanoes around the globe are erupting right
now. This is definitely an unusually high number.
In Matthew 24, Jesus warned us that there would be earthquakes in “divers places” just prior to His return. This is something that I discuss quite a bit in my new book. If we truly are in the times that the Bible refers to as “the
last days”, we should expect the shaking of our planet to continue to intensify.
If seismologist Roger Bilham is right and we do begin to see a series of absolutely massive earthquakes, that could dramatically change the course of world events
Even a single magnitude 8.0 earthquake in a major city in Japan, China or the United States would cause global markets to crash and would mean billions of dollars in economic damage.
So let us hope that the crust of our planet
begins to stabilize, but let us also not ignore the warnings of the scientists.
What they are warning us about right now lines up perfectly with what Jesus warned us about nearly 2000 years ago, and that is a very sobering thing to consider

Ring of Fire: Three Deadly Earthquakes In Three Days - 'Earthquake Outbreak' Has Scientists Concerned
By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine
Update from Alt Section - Something Huge Is Happening Worldwide - Earth Changes And Birth Pangs
Ecuador, Japan and
the US all reside on the same tectonic "Ring of Fire," which can be seen in the map above, and both Ecuador and Japan have just suffered three deadly earthquakes in rapid succession along that ring.
As can be seen in the ABC News report below titled
"Third Earthquake in Rapid Succession on 'Ring of Fire', we hear what the newscaster refers to as the "Eathquake Outbreak," along the ring of fire with Ecuador suffering a 7.8 magnitude earthquake and Japan being hit twice with 7.3 and 6.5 magnitude
quakes followed by hundreds of aftershocks which is hampering rescue effots.
(Article continues after the ABC News video)
days ago Stefan Stanford reported on a warning from the Prime Minister of Japan, Sinzo Abe who said "we are in a race against time," as we learned that the ground in Japan was "swaying every hour," in an article titled "Predictions Of Biblical Quakes
On Horizon Lead To This Alarm: 'We Are In A Race Against Time'.
As can be heard in the ABC News report above, with the U.S. residing on the same tetonic "Ring of Fire," there are new concerns about "the big one hitting here," as they bring
on an expert that states "We're all on the 'ring of fire,' this is a very active part of the Earth and it is a reminder that this is a hazard we face."
According to the Express UK, scientists are now warning that under current conditions along the Pacific Rim we could see up to four earthquakes with magnitudes greater than 8 as they quote a seismologist of University of Colorado who believes "And
if they delay, the strain accumulated during the centuries provokes more catastrophic mega earthquakes."
RT reports "A total of 38 volcanoes are currently
erupting around the world, making conditions ripe for seismic activity in the Pacific area."
In order to understand
the scope of the seismic activing being seen, the map below is a screen shot from Earthquakes-Volcanoes Discovery, who also provide a list of volcanoes erupting currently.
We are reminded by a link found at Steve Quayle's website the importance of being as prepared as possible, because when the "big one" hits in the U.S., it will be too late. We see that store shelves in Japan are empty as people start "panic buying" after the deadly earthquakes hit.

JAPAN EARTHQUAKES UPDATE:- 19/04/16
Over the past 48 hours, our planet has been hit by literally dozens of earthquakes of magnitude 4.0 or greater, and scientists are acknowledging that what is taking place is highly unusual. This strange shaking began toward the end of last week when the globe was struck by five major earthquakes over the space of just two days, and over the weekend
the seismic activity just continued to escalate. Very early on Saturday, Japan’s southern island of Kyushu was hit by a magnitude 7.3 earthquake, and on Saturday night a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck off Ecuador’s Pacific coast. It
was the worst earthquake that Ecuador had experienced since 1979, and it was followed by at least 163 aftershocks. Unfortunately, there are indications that what we have seen so far may be just the beginning.
Because the Ecuador earthquake was
bigger, it is getting most of the headlines at the moment, but the truth is that what is going on in Japan is potentially far more dangerous.
Over the past week, Japan’s southern Island of Kyushu has been rocked by a series of devastating quakes,
including two major ones in less than 48 hours. The following comes from the Guardian…
A second major earthquake in less than two days has shaken Japan’s southern island of Kyushu, with at least 34 people thought to have been killed, about 1,500 injured and more feared buried after building collapses and landslides.
The 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck at about 1.30am on Saturday, waking people across the island – including the thousands already in crisis centres. It caused widespread damage, with several landslides and a village evacuated over fears a dam might
The mainstream media in the United States is using the term “landslides” to describe what has happened all over Kyushu, but the truth is that in many instances it would be far more accurate to say that “giant cracks”
or “vast chasms” have formed. The geography of Japan’s southern island has been fundamentally transformed, and this is beginning to cause huge concerns. Here is more from the Guardian…
One major landslide tore open a mountainside in Minamiaso village in Kumamoto prefecture, destroying a key bridge that could cut off food and other relief transport to the worst-hit
Another landslide hit a road, collapsing a house that fell down a ravine. In another part of the village, houses were left hanging precariously at the edge of a huge hole.
I want to show you a map which comes
directly from the U.S. Geological Survey. This map shows all of the earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater that have hit Japan’s southern island over the past week. As you look at this map, do you see a pattern?…
The dozens of earthquakes that have hit Japan’s southern island over the past week appear to form something of a straight line that divides the island in two. Many are now speculating that geological forces are beginning to tear Kyushu in half,
and if that is true, the earthquake activity that we have seen in Japan so far is probably just the tip of the iceberg.
We could potentially be talking about an event that could ultimately have far more of an impact on Japan than the tsunami of 2011.
By the time it is all said and done, entire cities could be wiped off the map and millions upon millions of Japanese citizens could be displaced.
Already, the seismic activity that has rocked Kyushu is having quite an impact on the Japanese economy…
Earlier today Toyota was one of many Japanese companies
to announce that it will suspend most car production across Japan as a result of critical supply chain disruptions caused by the recent destructive earthquake and numerous aftershocks. All of the major assembly lines will be shut down across its four directly-run plants, and Toyota will be halting production in stages at other group companies as well.
According to the Nikkei Asian Review, most of the Toyota group in Japan will
be effectively shut down through at least the end of this upcoming week, with a production loss of as many as 50,000 vehicles, including brands such as Prius, Lexus, and Land Cruiser.
Our planet resembles something of a giant cracked egg,
and the enormous tectonic plates that we are all living on are constantly in motion. So if Japan’s southern island is in the process of slowly splitting in half, that shouldn’t exactly be a surprise. After all, scientists assure us
that Los Angeles and San Francisco will be directly next to one another someday.
And it isn’t just Japan that we need to be concerned about. All along the “Ring of Fire”, seismic activity is increasing, and this has many of the
experts completely puzzled. The following comes from an excellent piece by Alvin
This has continued to baffle many of the world’s leading geologists, who still attest the rise in the number of large earthquakes is merely a random natural occurrence. For instance, the number of large
earthquakes doubled in 2014. However, here’s what scientists had to say about it: “If you think there have been more earthquakes than usual this year, you’re right. A new study finds there were more than twice as many big earthquakes
in the first quarter of 2014 as compared with the average since 1979.
“We have recently experienced a period that has had one of the highest rates of great earthquakes ever recorded,” said lead study author Tom Parsons,
a research geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Menlo Park, California.
