Earthquake weather

   

Yesterday afternoon as dark clouds gathered over Oahu, Governor Neil Abercrombie signed in to law (at approx. 2:00 p.m) Hawaii’s civil unions bill making Hawaii the 7th state in the nation to accept what is nothing  less than marriage between two members of the same-sex.  And, while it’s not known exactly what time ink met paper making it official,  it would be an almost exact 24 hours later (2:12 p.m.)  that Oahu would experience the shaking and shuddering of a 3.6 magnitude earthquake. 

Earthquakes, of course are not unknown in this part of the world, but, are more commonly experienced off the shores of the big island of Hawaii where the volcano Kilauea is located.  Earthquakes that can be felt on Oahu are much more rare.  And, while I did not feel the earthquake myself this afternoon, I can say this, “I was not surprised.”  As no doubt, many of you would not have been either, for those of us who have been watching the past few months have began  to recognize  that events such as this one (the signing of the civil unions bill) often do not go without comment in one way or another by what is known by many would term as “an act of God.” 

After hearing about the earthquake, one of my co-workers on looking out the window at the dark storm clouds that continued to loom overhead today as if in afterthought to yesterdays events, commented – “it looks like earthquake weather to me.”   Earthquake weather indeed!  And, while looming storm clouds have little to do with the shifting of tectonic plates, decisions such as the one made yesterday do.  Time and again, history has shown that some decisions are of such gravity, such import, that once made, they become tsunami like in nature.  And, like a tsunami, their incredible destructive power is never fully realized until it is too late, appearing in the beginning as a mere ripple across the water.

Yesterday Governor Abercrombie was suffering a cold and subsequent ear infection yet was not deterred from making state history by turning out to sign the civil unions bill in to law.  At the same time, a flash flood advisory was issued as heavy rain and lightning made its way across the island.

Interestingly, lightning struck the steeple of a church on the Windward side late yesterday afternoon blowing a hole in its steeple.  Thankfully, no one at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church was hurt.  But, I couldn’t help but take notice of the name  of the church – Mt. Carmel  – wondering if it could mean anything … .  strangely reminiscent in theme I think – fire and lightning – to a post done by Art over at New Wineskins on the Mt. Carmel fires in Israel some time back.  I googled Lady of  Mount Carmel and found the following information from Wikipedia.  Because it is late and I have to work in the morning, I won’t have time to explore all of the possible implications, so,  I’ll leave that to those of you who have the time and inclination to do so.  Here’s the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Lady_of_Mount_Carmel

Summing it up I would say that in my opinion today’s earthquake is a warning.  A merciful warning that when God is removed from our personal lives and our civil laws, we can no longer expect either his hand of blessing or his hand of restraint in preventing  man-made or natural disasters.  Therefore, the choice is ours.  I hope the people of Hawaii are listening.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6     Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy

  1. On the surface a lot of things look a certain way, but underneath they are of something different. A lot of things have come into the scope of Christianity. I cringe at what is often being done with Mary the mother of JESUS. Upon looking at this link there is a lot of things that are attached to it, and one of them is elevating or deifying Mary.
    This is what JESUS the had to say about that in Luke chapter 11.
    27 And it happened, as He spoke these things, that a certain woman from the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that bore You, and the breasts which nursed You!”
    28 But He said, “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”
    It is interesting what he goes on to say in verse 29 and following.

    • Jeff,
      I have had the same concerns about this false Mary for a long time and wrote the below text a few months back trying to alert people to the scam the Roman Catholic Church has perpetrated on their flock. I pray this false unbiblical Mary worship does not cost millions their salvation.
      ———————————————————————————-

      —God’s Words concerning the Virgin Mary—

      Lets focus for a minute on Mary the beloved mother of Jesus from what God’s word tells us. She was found to be the highly favored one, blessed among women, whom the Lord was with . A virgin woman who God chose to be the vessel to accomplish the birth of Jesus conceived in her by the Holy Spirit. A woman who all generations hence would recognize as blessed by God to have been chosen the earthly birth mother of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Then there are brief glimpses of her life up to and soon after Jesus’ death. There is nothing in God’s word about her death or her husband Joseph’s or their children’s deaths. With those details and the lack of details of many of the early saints one can using God’s Word be assured that after their deaths that their souls (again using God’s Words of) —-absent from the body and present with the Lord— determine that Mary and Joseph’s and their children’s souls are present with the Lord in heaven but waiting with millions of others who are dead to receive their immortal bodies at the Rapture of the Church.

      —Man’s words or more specifically the Roman Catholic Church’s words concerning the Virgin Mary—

      Now lets see what completely unbiblical and blasphemous details the RCC has created for Mary the earthly mother of God throughout the centuries turning her into this “false Mary” for the benefit of the RCC.
      1)In 1854 Pope Pius IX proclaimed the Immaculate Conception of Mary meaning she was born without sin. There is nothing in God’s word to substantiate this and it was dreamt up by RCC.

      2) The RCC teaches the “Perpetual Virginity of Mary” saying that she was a virgin before, during and after the birth of Jesus. Nowhere is this found in God’s word . RCC made it up. In fact God’s word says Jesus had siblings born to Mary. His brother James for one example. Matthew 1:24 talks about Joseph not having any sexual relations with her “until” after Jesus was born.

      3) The RCC declared in 1950 by Pope Pius XII “The Assumption of Mary” that she was raptured or ascended into heaven. Absolutely nothing to back this up in God’s word. Made up by RCC

      4) The RCC declared Mary as “The Mother of All Christians”, the mother of all believers. Absolutely unbiblical—dreamt up by RCC.

      5) The RCC declared Mary is “The Mediatrix” and that she intercedes for all believers between them and God when the bible very clearly states in 1Timothy 2:5 and 1 John 2:1 that Jesus Christ is the only mediator between men and God the Father. Again the RCC merely made this up with no biblical foundation for their actions.

      6) The RCC in 1922 under Pope Benedict XV declared Mary to be “The Co-Redemptrix” meaning that she gets co-credit for the redemption of man’s sins that Jesus paid for on the cross. Completely unbiblical—complete blasphemy. Conjured up by RCC

      7) The RCC has declared Mary to be “Queen of Heaven”. That she has risen to a level of divinity with our triune Godhead. Not biblical and absolutely baseless fabrication and blasphemy on the part of RCC.

      8) And to go along with #7 the RCC has declared Mary to be “The Mother of God” not just His earthly mother but also His heavenly mother. Complete blasphemy again dreamt up by RCC.

      • Cindy, John and Jeff: Great words of truth. Queen of Heaven is referenced in the Bible (OT) to be a false idol and many were worshipping her way back then!

        The Lord is revealing the context of “Virgin Mary” as the Catholics worship her. It starts with the symbol of the phallic (as in Washington DC)! This is actually a symbol of both sex organs – the nephilim – who were fallen angels. Angels are both male and female. They have both male and female sex organs. Nephilim have been reproducing strongly since WWII. I personally believe it can be traced back to Queen Elizabeth “Mary” – the Queen of Heaven (Hell). The nephilim is the race that Hitler was trying to recreate. The “Orient Express – as in Tom Hanks children’s movie !!” – is a reference to the creation of nephilim going forward without our knowledge or consent (in secret in the dark rooms). They have both sex organs and can reproduce without sex outside of their own bodies = nephilim. They are made in the image of satan – total lawlessness – soul-less creatures. They are called “reptilians” because they can reproduce like many species: reptiles, bees, crocodiles (which is why they love dragons – crocodiles – bees [as on the pope’s robe and his beehive hat] symbols)! Bees also make sounds many have attested that they have heard close to openings to the Underworld (hell).

        Our church steeples are a representation of the Phallic symbol!! So when lightning struck the one in the article above – it is a symbol that God is making this known to His saints – the true meaning of this symbol has been hidden from us.

        The purebloods – the elite – are nephilim! They are (in their own eyes) the “wise” – those with a third eye (ESP – channelling – etc.) straight from fallen angels – total lawlessness – children of Cain. (the Bush family – the Queen of England – where America was formed from and on and on it goes.)

        Two nights ago (I believe on Grey’s anatomy) the theme was a young lady had both sex organs and “could choose” what sex she wanted to be! They want us to believe that this is an anomaly – normal. NOT TRUE!!!! They are nephilim – moon children – lawless in school – can’t be controlled – pure evil – no soul because they have been created in the image of satan.

        Pure evil at its core now being revealed! THIS is what America has been founded on!

  2. Hawaii State Senator Clayton Hee was one of the primary advocates of the Civil Unions bill. If I recall, on one of the local newscasts , he was photographed smiling and to celebrate its passage, kissed the top of Governor Abercrombie’s head at the bill signing ceremony. It was meant to be a funny and light-hearted moment but I think this particular moment was an affront to God and He has another perception of this matter. The Lady of the Mt. Carmel church where lightning struck its steeple is located in the 23rd Senatorial District. Guess who represents the 23rd District? Senator Hee.

    [ Wow! Good observation Stuart! I had seen the story but, didn’t make the connection. Thanks for sharing it with us. C ]

  3. Lets see what else has happened on Mount Carmel 1 Kings 18:20-40
    Elijah’s Mount Carmel Victory

    20 So Ahab sent for all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together on Mount Carmel. 21 And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word. 22 Then Elijah said to the people, “I alone am left a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men. 23 Therefore let them give us two bulls; and let them choose one bull for themselves, cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire under it; and I will prepare the other bull, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire under it. 24 Then you call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD; and the God who answers by fire, He is God.”
    So all the people answered and said, “It is well spoken.”
    25 Now Elijah said to the prophets of Baal, “Choose one bull for yourselves and prepare it first, for you are many; and call on the name of your god, but put no fire under it.”
    26 So they took the bull which was given them, and they prepared it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even till noon, saying, “O Baal, hear us!” But there was no voice; no one answered. Then they leaped about the altar which they had made.
    27 And so it was, at noon, that Elijah mocked them and said, “Cry aloud, for he is a god; either he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened.” 28 So they cried aloud, and cut themselves, as was their custom, with knives and lances, until the blood gushed out on them. 29 And when midday was past, they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice. But there was no voice; no one answered, no one paid attention.
    30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down. 31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the LORD had come, saying, “Israel shall be your name.”[b] 32 Then with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD; and he made a trench around the altar large enough to hold two seahs of seed. 33 And he put the wood in order, cut the bull in pieces, and laid it on the wood, and said, “Fill four waterpots with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice and on the wood.” 34 Then he said, “Do it a second time,” and they did it a second time; and he said, “Do it a third time,” and they did it a third time. 35 So the water ran all around the altar; and he also filled the trench with water.
    36 And it came to pass, at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said, “LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that You are God in Israel and I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. 37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that You are the LORD God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.”
    38 Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!”
    40 And Elijah said to them, “Seize the prophets of Baal! Do not let one of them escape!” So they seized them; and Elijah brought them down to the Brook Kishon and executed them there.
    Our GOD is calling to his people and will destroy those who reject him and his beloved son JESUS whom he sent.

  4. This is just “trivial” but, when I first read your post the other day, it brought to mind the earthquake in Mt. Carmel, IL a while back (2008??). But this morning, really thought of your story because just before a devastating storm hit the St. Louis region last night, we felt the earth move from some quake in Arkansas. The first was a 4.7 at 11pm, then 3.8 about 11:18pm then the storm moved in and went crazy. Since this post is called to mind so soon, going to reread it and think/pray on it today.

    [ Hi Tam, not trivial at all! You are right to think and pray about the terrible storms and earthquakes we’ve been inundated with since the first of the year as they are not without a purpose. Thankfully, God in his graciousness is giving ample warning for anyone with eyes to see. Praying with you and for you! C]

  5. Cindy, after reading many of your insightful post on the rich symbolism that we are seeing these days, I came across a post regarding another recent animal die off: this time it’s bald eagles. Vancouver Island Bald Eagles Are “Falling From the Sky”

    http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/dailyweekly/2011/02/comox_valley_bald_eagles_are_f.php

    This immediately struck me as being symbolic of how the US (represented by eagles) is ‘dying’ before our very eyes. To me, this eagle die off is very significant, just as the earthquake in Christchurch was symbolic of Christ trying to ‘shake his church awake’ on things to come as these days get darker. I couldn’t shake the feeling that maybe this eagle thing could be warning us of more than just where the US is headed, so I looked up “eagles” in the bible, and came across a reference in Obadiah. (I have been reading lately on John McTernan’s web blog about the coming Obadiah/Psalm 83/Isaiah 17 battles, so when I saw this reference about the eagles it got my attention!) Many believe that Psalm 83 & Isaiah 17 are next. Something has to occur to give Israel the ability to live in the center of the land without walls and feel secure. (In Ezekiel, it says Israel will be attacked when it is living securely in the land.) I’ve read that the valley Gog is buried in is currently a part of Jordan, but Ezekiel says this valley is a part of Israel, so something has to occur before Ezekiel 38 & 39 that gives Israel more land, and a false sense of security. Psalm 83 & Isaiah 17 answers these questions. The book of Obadiah is also thought to refer to this battle and how Israel will expands it’s borders into Jordan as a result. From what I can tell, modern day “Edom” is regarded as the territories of Edom, Moab, and Ammon and represents modern day Jordan.

    So could the eagles be a harbinger that this battle is fast approaching?

    I found this reference to the eagle in the book of Obadiah:

    Obadiah 1
    The Coming Judgment on Edom
    1 The vision of Obadiah.

    Thus says the Lord GOD concerning Edom
    (We have heard a report from the LORD,
    And a messenger has been sent among the nations, saying,

    “ Arise, and let us rise up against her for battle”): (Psalm 83 war?)
    2 “ Behold, I will make you small among the nations;
    You shall be greatly despised.
    3 The pride of your heart has deceived you,
    You who dwell in the clefts of the rock,
    Whose habitation is high;
    You who say in your heart, ‘Who will bring me down to the ground?’
    4 Though you ascend as high as the eagle,
    And though you set your nest among the stars,
    From there I will bring you down,” says the LORD.
    5 “ If thieves had come to you,
    If robbers by night—
    Oh, how you will be cut off!—
    Would they not have stolen till they had enough?
    If grape-gatherers had come to you,
    Would they not have left some gleanings?
    6 “ Oh, how Esau shall be searched out!
    How his hidden treasures shall be sought after!
    7 All the men in your confederacy
    Shall force you to the border;
    The men at peace with you
    Shall deceive you and prevail against you. (After this war Israel will expand her borders into Jordan…)
    Those who eat your bread shall lay a trap[a] for you.
    No one is aware of it.
    8 “ Will I not in that day,” says the LORD,

    “ Even destroy the wise men from Edom,
    And understanding from the mountains of Esau?
    9 Then your mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed,
    To the end that everyone from the mountains of Esau
    May be cut off by slaughter.

    Edom Mistreated His Brother
    10 “ For violence against your brother Jacob, (against Israel in this battle)
    Shame shall cover you,
    And you shall be cut off forever.
    11 In the day that you stood on the other side—
    In the day that strangers carried captive his forces,
    When foreigners entered his gates
    And cast lots for Jerusalem—
    Even you were as one of them.
    12 “ But you should not have gazed on the day of your brother
    In the day of his captivity;[b]
    Nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah
    In the day of their destruction;
    Nor should you have spoken proudly
    In the day of distress.
    13 You should not have entered the gate of My people
    In the day of their calamity.
    Indeed, you should not have gazed on their affliction
    In the day of their calamity,
    Nor laid hands on their substance
    In the day of their calamity.
    14 You should not have stood at the crossroads
    To cut off those among them who escaped;
    Nor should you have delivered up those among them who remained
    In the day of distress.
    15 “ For the day of the LORD upon all the nations is near;
    As you have done, it shall be done to you;
    Your reprisal shall return upon your own head.
    16 For as you drank on My holy mountain,
    So shall all the nations drink continually;
    Yes, they shall drink, and swallow,
    And they shall be as though they had never been.

    Israel’s Final Triumph
    17 “ But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance,
    And there shall be holiness;
    The house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. (Israel will take over the country)
    18 The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
    And the house of Joseph a flame;
    But the house of Esau shall be stubble;
    They shall kindle them and devour them,
    And no survivor shall remain of the house of Esau,”
    For the LORD has spoken.
    19 The South[c] shall possess the mountains of Esau,
    And the Lowland shall possess Philistia.
    They shall possess the fields of Ephraim
    And the fields of Samaria.
    Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
    20 And the captives of this host of the children of Israel
    ** Shall possess the land of the Canaanites
    As far as Zarephath.
    The captives of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
    Shall possess the cities of the South.[d]
    21 Then saviors[e] shall come to Mount Zion
    To judge the mountains of Esau,
    And the kingdom shall be the LORD’s.

    **I looked up the Land of the Canaanites: Cannan is an ancient term for a region roughly corresponding to present-day Israel/Palestine including the West Bank, western Jordan, southern and coastal Syria and Lebanon continuing up to the border of modern Turkey.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this!
    Yours in Christ,
    Susan

    [ Hi Susan, Very interesting! Thanks for writing and sharing the article about the eagles. As I read the article, I was struck by the fact that the Eagles were not only starving but, were diseased and parasite ridden from eating out of garbage dumps. Alot like the present state of our nation I’d say! Weak from a parasitic government and a populace to busy feeding on garbage to care, – not hard to see the symbolism there – no doubt, like these poor diseased birds, we are on our way down. Not quite sure how it ties in with the passage from Obadiah, but, pride seems to be a key factor. Blessings and thanks again for writing and for your encouragement! C ]

  6. Our Lord is speaking to the people of earth through the earthquakes and volcanoes, there are no coincidences, but the people are still not hearing. He will speak louder, soon. I did a little study on the voice of God and share the following to make this point:

    Psa 114:7-8 Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of the Lord, At the presence of the God of Jacob, Who turned the rock into a pool of water, The flint into a fountain of waters.

    Nah 1:3-6 Jehovah is slow to anger, and great in power, and will by no means clear the guilty: Jehovah hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. (4) He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel; and the flower of Lebanon languisheth. (5) The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt; and the earth is upheaved at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. (6) Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his wrath is poured out like fire, and the rocks are broken asunder by him.

    Psa 104:32 Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.

    Exo 20:18-19 And all the people perceived the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the voice of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they trembled, and stood afar off. (19) And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

    Exo 19:18 And mount Sinai, the whole of it, smoked, because Jehovah descended upon it in fire; and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

    1Sa 14:15 And there was a trembling in the camp, in the field, and among all the people; the garrison, and the spoilers, they also trembled; and the earth quaked: so there was an exceeding great trembling.

    Psa 18:6-8 In my distress I called upon Jehovah, And cried unto my God: He heard my voice out of his temple, And my cry before him came into his ears. (7) Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations also of the mountains quaked And were shaken, because he was wroth. (8) There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, And fire out of his mouth devoured: Coals were kindled by it.

    Jer 10:10 But Jehovah is the true God; he is the living God, and an everlasting King: at his wrath the earth trembleth, and the nations are not able to abide his indignation.

  7. The reason why the Lord will not allow the world as it is to go on for much longer:

    http://www.tipsity.com/health/2008/eclampsia-parthenogenesis-humans-virigin-birth-and-virgin-pregnancy-myth

    Quote:

    Virgin birth or Virgin Pregnancy is now officially possible however not practiced widely. They will be many clinic/hospital going for it in near future looking at the huge demand.

    The reptilians – fallen angels – made in the image of satan – soul-less – evil generation. Elites – true-bloods – the “wise” – the rulers of this world!
