Signs of Times Update 2016

2016 may well be known as the year of the earthquake, as areas around the world trembled from seismic activity. This year we witnessed more powerful earthquakes, awakening of more giant volcanoes . Earthquakes and volcanic activity have increased worldwide and according to Bible Prophecy we’ll continue to see this increase in the coming years.

Matthew 24:7 states: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

The earthquakes statistics for 2016 were incredible. This century, from January the 1st in the year 2,000 until January 2017 a total of 2,697 major quakes have been recorded.

In the same period, January the 1st 1900 to January 1917 only 97 major quakes were recorded, that is an incredible increase and indicates our planet is showing signs of birth pains because just as a woman in labor suffers contractions of increasing pain and intensity likewise our planet is also suffering with increasing quake pain and intensity.

Earthquakes of 6 to 6.9 magnitude quakes have risen over one hundred years by as much as 450% earthquakes.

Here are some of the headline-grabbing Earthquakes that occurred in 2016.

On Feb. 6, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake hit 17 miles (28 kilometers) northeast of Pingtung City in southern Taiwan. It’s relatively shallow depth (14 miles, or 23 km, below the surface) caused widespread damage, toppling buildings in the city of Tainan. The quake caused an estimated 117 deaths and left hundreds more injured, according to the Tainan City government.

Central Italy was rattled this year by three strong earthquakes in just three months. A 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck Aug. 24 about 6.5 miles (10.5 kilometers) southeast of Norcia, Italy. The initial quake was followed by several aftershocks, including a 5.5-magnitude earthquake that struck 2.5 miles (4 km) northeast of Norcia the same day. The temblors rocked Central Italy, killing hundreds of people as medieval-era stone buildings collapsed.

Reports from late December 2016 indicate that scientists issued a report in the journal Nature Communications, that Italy’s Campi Flegrei, considered “one of Earth’s most dangerous Super Volcanoes” is rumbling and may be reawakening. What’s very disturbing about this super volcano in Naples, Italy, is that 500,000 people live above it. Can you imagine trying to re-locate more than 500,000 people if there is forewarning that this super volcano will explode?

Also in 2016 there was a record-breaking year for earthquakes in New Zealand, New Zealand experienced a quake on average every 15-20 minutes. But one singular quake in November may have caused more damaged than all the others combined. A powerful 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck New Zealand on Nov. 14. Though the quake’s epicenter was northeast of Christchurch, the massive temblor was felt as far away as New Zealand’s capital of Wellington, located 120 miles (200 km) away, on the North Island. About 2 hours after the initial quake, tsunami waves over 7 feet (2 meters) tall hit the coast.

The 2016 Fukushima earthquake struck Japan with a magnitude of 6.9. The powerful earthquake shook northern Japan on Nov. 21, 2016. Generating a small tsunami.

Geologists Warn of Future Major Earthquakes?

Geologists are very concerned that there’s been an uptick of earthquakes in California & Geologists warn that California is overdue for the “Big One”.

Also, earthquake scientists from Canada and the U.S. who monitor seismic activity along the Cascadia coast have concluded that the dangerous fault line is fully locked & not relieving built up pressure, which carries serious implications for an earthquake in the Pacific Northwest. The fault has produced at least seven magnitude 9.0 or greater mega thrust earthquakes in the past 3,500 years, a frequency that indicates a return time of 300 to 600 years.

The massive earthquake on the night of January 26, 1700, was one of the world’s largest. The Cascadia fault ruptured along a 680-mile stretch, from the middle of Vancouver Island to northern California, producing tremendous shaking and a huge tsunami that swept across the Pacific.

Geologists that there was a high probability that the New Madrid Seismic Zone could experience a great earthquake in the near future. Earthquakes that occur in the New Madrid Seismic Zone potentially threaten parts of seven American states.

Illinois, Indiana, Missouri,Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi.

And could kill thousands of people.

Also it came out in 2016, that a Cover-up was admitted: Radioactive Fish Off U.S. West Coast With “Disturbing Fingerprint of Fukushima”

The entire Pacific Coast of the United States, Canada and Mexico has been contaminated with radioactive particles from Fukushima.

It is a stark reminder that the effects from Fukushima radiation continually spilling into the ocean have not been abated. The site continues to leak highly toxic radioactive material to this day. Nothing has stopped.

The entire Pacific Coast of the United States, Canada and Mexico has been contaminated with radioactive particles from Fukushima. And finally, it is being officially acknowledged. This is really happening! How many people in the west coatare being affected slowly with radiation from the sea, air the Pacific ocean food chain?

Indonesia Disasters and Earthquakes

Indonesia records highest number of natural disasters in 2016
Indonesia was battered by 2,342 natural disasters in 2016, the highest in the past 14 years, making it one of the most violent years in recent memory.

According to data from the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB), the number of natural disasters increased by 35 percent during 2016 from 1,732 in the previous year, with flooding, landslides and whirlwinds still dominating.

During the first week of March, a 7.8-magnitude temblor struck about 500 miles (800 km) southwest of Sumatra, an island in western Indonesia. Though the quake was strong, it occurred far enough away from the islands to cause significant damage.

The war on cash intensified in 2016

Governments of the World are coming for Your Cash?

“War on Cash.” as you may know, is an ongoing effort by governments to eliminate paper money. This war is being waged across the world and it’s picking up steam.

Here are just some of the steps being taken to force the world into a cashless environment:

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi abolished 500 and 1,000 rupee bills on Nov. 8,2016 taking out 86 percent of cash in circulation, in a bid to fight corruption, end terror financing and turn India into a cashless society.

According to a recent report by Fung Global Retail & Technology, nine of the top 15 “most digital-ready” countries are in Europe. It predicts Sweden could become the world’s first completely cashless society.

Italy and France recently banned cash transactions over 1,000 euros. Spain has banned transactions over 2,500 euros. Uruguay banned cash transactions over US $5,000.

The publicly stated reasons for eliminating cash are nothing but a red herring to fool the public into supporting this move and relinquishing their financial freedom without a fight.

Germany’s Deputy Finance Minister, Michael Meister, wants a €5,000 cap on cash transactions.

The head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, along with a growing list of former and current banking officials, is calling for ending the €500 euro.

Former Treasury Secretary, Larry Summers, is calling for ending the $100 bill, and wants Europe to retire the €500 euro. This would effectively remove over 50% of all physical currency currently in circulation in Europe and the U.S.

This move to eliminate cash is a big part of Endtime Bible Prophecy. For nearly 2,000 years, ever since the apostle John wrote this passage about the Antichrist’s worldwide economic system in (Revelation 13:16-18), such a thing had been inconceivable. Now, with computers and the Internet, electronic banking, and the increasing globalization of the world’s markets and economies, it’s not so inconceivable after all!

REVELATION 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

REVELATION 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

REVELATION 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (The “Beast” is referring to the Antichrist coming World Dictator!)

In interesting to note that in 2016, The UAE telecoms giant unveiled new injectable microchips, which store all your credit card, ID and business card data inside, for the first time in the Middle East at GITEX 2016 in Dubai.

The technique is called bio-hacking, where an alien device is embedded on the back of the hand between the thumb and forefinger using a special syringe,

We insert the needle under the skin with a part of the need that pushes it in, and that’s where it settles and it needs a week or two to heal.”

Naori performed the implant for the first time on October 7 on George Held, from Etisalat’s Innovation team.

“We have to internationally agree on the system and this is eventually going to happen, “It’s an electronic smart gate. It’s the same thing, instead of having the card you just have it under your skin and it verifies you.”

Held warned, though, that before it can be commercially launched, decisions need to be made on what role it will play in society.

Another selling point will be for health. For example A Japanese city has introduced a novel way to keep track of senior citizens with dementia who are prone to getting lost -- tagging their fingers and toes with scan-able barcodes.

Children that get lost or kidnapped could be tract & found via chip implants.

Proponents of these new technologies and cooperative efforts always point out the positive aspects, such as convenience, security, lower costs, and improved quality, speed, and efficiency in the delivery of goods and services. Little is said about the negative aspects of this public intrusion into what were once private personal affairs. Under the banner of science and technology the governments of the world are rushing to complete the Antichrist’s economic and political system for him the very system the Bible warns against.

Computer scientists are also attempting to electronically replicate the human brain & are close to creating a 'living PC'.

The significant to this type of technology is that it connects to Bible Prophecy that there will be an Image of the Antichrist that is promoted by the False Prophet. Some Endtime Bible scholars believe this could possibly be in the form of a life like Android?

This warning is given in Revelation 13:14-15

Revelation 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

The Bible predicted such an economic buy & sell world system nearly 2000 years ago! We can see by the new technologies that are here & other technology that is being worked on, and this 666 system could be online in the near future? Here’s the warning to us in Revelation 14:9-12 to not take the mark of the beast in the forehead or in the hand!

Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast (Antichrist) and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Are you tuning in to the signs of the times? Many endtime Bible students are seeing that the “Birth Pangs” that Jesus spoke about before His second Coming at the resurrection & rapture are increasing, but we still have a ways to go before this big event! Are you watching these endtime events that are unfolding on the world stage?
