Brutal earthquake strikes mid-Italy, at least 20 dead, thousands homeless

New York Times Photo




Our Lord warned of the prophesied last days (Matthew 24) that there would be many earthquakes in various places. Sleepless in Michigan, I just learned that Italy only a few hours ago suffered a very brutal at least 6.3 earthquake which has toppled buildings and left thousands homeless. The New York Times story says 6.3 magnitude. The United States Geological Services says it was 6.7 magnitude.

According to the New York Times account, "seismic activity is relatively common in Italy, but intensity like Monday’s quake is rare."

I will be updating this as more news is available. Pray for those affected and if you can financially contribute to relief efforts for that region. You can read the New York Times account by clicking here. Are the prophesied "birth pangs" intensifying? It is my personal belief that this may well be the case.

Have you read this?

At the end, it says:

New EU president

In unrelated developments, Czech political parties on Sunday nominated the head of the country's statistics office, Jan Fischer, to take over as prime minister until snap elections on 9 October.

If formally approved, the 58-year old mathematician and former Communist party member will take the reins on 9 May.

With the Czech Republic currently holding the EU presidency, Mr Fischer would be eligible to chair the EU-China summit later that month and the EU summit in June. A new caretaker cabinet will chair the 17 EU minister-level meetings left.

The Czech government fell in a no confidence vote on 24 March, at an embarassing time ahead of the US summit."


Who is this man?
 
Javier Solana was there, nicely flying right under everybody's radara. I suspect he had MUCH to do with the undermining of the former Czech Prime Minister, Vaclav Klaus, who held the EU presidency during the 6 month rotating which Czechoslovakia still holds. His term as "EU President" will last no longer than June or July 2009 when Czechoslovakia's term expires. Vaclav Klaus had been openly critical of "Brussels," i.e., Javier Solana. Now that THAT problem has been taken care of, I suspect strongly that Solana will use that and the USA's interference in EU affairs, i.e. Turkey membership, to intensify his powers and compel immediate adoption of the Lisbon Treaty or equivalent.

At least that's my educated guess for the present.

At least 92 people dead and counting in Italy's 6.3 quake.

May God have mercy on the whole world.

Wondered how the above link may be connected to internet of things.
I found it while searching out a forensic scientist that may be able to help me in identifying an image of an unidentified child in hospital setting to image of a known child and adult. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hope the link above is of help to some of you researchers here. Thank you for all you are doing.

I'm sorry Constance but there is no longer a Czechoslovakia. It is now two countries, The Czech Republic and Slovakia with seperate governments.
 
Has anyone read this about Tony Blair? I wonder how Solana will deal with this. I always thought he would want this position for himself unless there is another post that will have more power.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/blair-steps-up-fight-to-be-crowned-first-president-of--eu-1662928.html

Tony Blair has emerged as the leading candidate to become the first permanent president of the European Union after Gordon Brown gave his grudging blessing to the plan. The former prime minister has stepped up his campaign for the job, which he wants to use to build a bridge between Europe and the new Obama administration.

OFF TOPIC BUT IMPORTANT . . .

I was listening to Lou Dobbs Tonight on CNN (HNL).

There did a story on the FBI going public with their investigation into the link between long haul truckers and serial killers in Texas and Oklahoma. Their data base goes back some 30 years and has linked as many as 200 long haul truckers with being responsible for the murders of about 500 victims, mostly prostitutes and hitchhikers. The good news is that the actual number of long haul truckers who kill is minuscule.
 
Correction:

I meant to say "they did a story"
 
According to the following report, the Catholic pope is due to arrive in Israel next week (not in May, as has been previously reported):

Debra,

The Lisbon Treaty would create 2 new leadership posiions. From Wikipedia:

the creation of a President of the European Union and a High Representative for Foreign Affairs to present a united position on EU policies.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisbon_Treaty

The leading candidate for the President is of course Tony Blair, but the leading candidate for the position of High Representative for Foreign Affairs is Javier Solana. The position of High Representative has much more power than the position of EU President which is largely ceremonial.

Again from Wikipedia, which position has the most power?

President of the European Council:

If ratified the new President of the European Council would be elected for a two and a half year term. The election would take place by a qualified majority among the members of the body, and the President can be removed by the same procedure. Unlike the President of the European Commission, there is no approval from the European Parliament.[131]

The President's work would be largely administrative in coordinating the work of the Council and organising the meeting. It does however offer external representation of the council and the Union and reports to the European Parliament after Council meetings and at the beginning and end of his or her term.

In many newspapers this new post is being called "President of Europe".

Foreign High Representative:

The Treaty would merge the post of High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy (currently held by Javier Solana) with the European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy (currently held by Benita Ferrero-Waldner), creating a 'High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy' in an effort to reduce the number of Commissioners, and coordinate the Union's foreign policy with greater consistency. The new High Representative would also become a Vice-President of the Commission, the administrator of the European Defence Agency and the Secretary-General of the Council. He or she would also get an External Action Service and a right to propose defence or security missions. The Constitution called this post the 'Union Foreign Minister'

The Pope is off to Israel next week. Obama is in Turkey, so it looks like there are all kinds of earthquakes in the Mediterranean region. The Mediterranean is fill with faults. When Yeshua comes back, the plates that will move will cause the Dead see to become Living Waters..

Zech. 14:4 In that day His feet will astand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be bsplit in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.

Zech. 14:8 ¶ And in that day aliving waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.
Zech. 14:9 ¶ And the LORD will be aking over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only bone, and His name the only one.
Zech. 14:10 ¶ All the land will be changed into a plain from aGeba to bRimmon south of Jerusalem; but 1Jerusalem will crise and dremain on its site from eBenjamin’s Gate as far as the place of the First Gate to the fCorner Gate, and from the gTower of Hananel to the king’s wine presses.
Zech. 14:11 1People will live in it, and there will ano longer be a curse, for Jerusalem will bdwell in security.
Zech. 14:12 ¶ Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will arot while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth.

Sounds like the effects of nuclear war, but who knows...

Obama was talking about no more nukes, on his European tour. That sounds very nice, but...

Israel has not signed any of the nuclear treaties...There will be great pressure on Israel to do this.

Obama also said that Iran should have civil nuclear power.. How nice of him to decide this. I wonder who will monitor this.. Russia?? The one who has been helping Iran to develop it's nuclear facilities.

North Korea tested the long range weapons that can carry nuclear material, but supposedly this was a failure. The UN will not sanction them.

Yes, there are a lot of earthquakes in the world and the Mediterranean region is filled with ancient fault lines. Just as iron and clay do not adhere, it looks like the Mediterranean Union, with it's heavy ties to the Muslim world might not adhere either:

Earthquakes are caused when the plates shift in the earth. It looks like there are plenty of "faults" in the Mediterranean region...excuse the pun.. but it was intended.

meant to say the "Dead Sea" but perhaps Yeshua will cause the dead to see could be another pun, unintended this time.

Let's not forget the financial earthquake that was announced again at the G20 Summit:

http://tinyurl.com/cu656e

Yes there have certainly been some major shocks this week all the way around. When we examine them in light of the prophecy they are pretty interesting. Obama wants Turkey to join the EU as well.. so he agrees with Spain, but France is holding out. Sarkozy, promised that it would not happen if he was elected.

http://tinyurl.com/cuunnr

If Turkey comes into the EU, we have the old capital of the Roman Empire rejoining EU.. a Muslim country.. What an interesting way to make the Alliance of Civilizations. Does anyone think the choice of meeting place is a coincidence?

Are there more earthquakes brewing?

That would be the Roadmap to Hell which is paved with good intentions..


Well Passover is coming soon.. There was one Exodus, where Israel was spared many plagues. They stayed in Egypt, but God protected them. We have another Exodus coming soon ( not talking about a pre-trib rapture mind you) . . We too, will be going into the Promised Land.. In the meantime, we are leaving Pharaoh's system, one of these days soon, so keep watching the signs and the seasons.. Even better if you walk in them.. you can actually hear God's voice telling you, but whatever you do, "don't turn left or right"...

Josh. 1:7 “Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the Torah which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.


1Cor. 5:7 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our aPassover also has been sacrificed.
1Cor. 5:8 Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.


This was after Yeshua's resurrection and ascension, Paul was still celebrating..

Thank you Doug in Michigan for your 6:23 pm. post.

Many view ten kingdoms discussed in Daniel 7-24a to be revival of old Roman Empire = ten European states. Textually, after the world falls under the one world government then and only then does the one world government split up into ten kingdoms. But, these ten kingdoms cover the whole world not Europe alone. Following division of the world into ten kingdoms, the anti-Christ will begin his rise to power in Daniel 7-24b, that there was to be a revlation of the anti-Christ before the revlation is clear from second Thessalonians 2..1-3.

We are watching prophecy being fullfilled before our very eyes. What an exciting time to live.

We can hear the Footsteps of the Messiah approaching.


FOTM-Walt
 
Oops!!!

Walt's 11:45 post should have read that there was to be a revelation of the anti-Christ before the Tribulation is clear from
II Thessalonians 2:1-3.

Sorry, my poor two finger typing gets me in trouble again. Those two fingers don't spell right all of the time either.

FOTM-Walt
 
Walt, your post was interesting, however, isn't the covenant made with the (geographically speaking) revived Roman Empire? I need to go back to Scripture and research to be sure.

Constance, do you have any thoughts on this?
 
I copied and pasted a portion of Herb Peter's analyses of the fourth kingdom, here is the link.

http://www.watchmanbiblestudy.com/BibleStudies/HIStoryOurFuture_RRE.htm

*********************************
Daniel 2:40-44
And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: [Roman Empire] forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

These 10 toes of the fourth kingdom are a divided kingdom yet united under the same statue with the same iron as the legs before it, which represented the Roman Empire. These 10 toes represent the 10 nations headed by leaders which make up the last kingdom.

Wow, what a time to have a computer malfunction! LOL

Dear Jaclyn,
You can go to Tinyurl.com , copy and paste your article address into the slot and it will "tiny" it for you.
The Tinyurl.com server can go down from time to time, so (as I've learned the hard way) it's always better to still copy and paste the original site address plus the tinyurl.
Hope this helps. :-)

GIANT HAND REACHES ACROSS SPACE

"Tiny and dying but still-powerful stars called pulsars spin like crazy and light up their surroundings, often with ghostly glows."

"So it is with PSR B1509-58, which long ago collapsed into a sphere just 12 miles in diameter after running out of fuel."

"And what a strange scene this one has created."

"In a new image from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, high-energy X-rays emanating from the nebula around PSR B1509-58 have been colored blue to reveal a structure resembling a hand reaching for some eternal red cosmic light."

I have heard it said - that the secret to masonry is contained within what is quoted in these passages from Daniel posted by Jaclyn.
Daniel 2:43

43And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

"they shall ,mingle themselves with the seed of men"

This to be exact.
