Yellowstone Shakes Raise Fears Of Massive Eruption

yellowstoneHONOLULU, HAWAII (Worthy News) -- Scientists were watching the United States' famous Yellowstone National Park, Tuesday, January 6,  after hundreds of earthquakes there late December and last week -- prompting fears they are the prelude to the world's most powerful volcanic eruption.

The series of earthquakes, the most violent in decades, have not yet caused damage, but with a 3-4 range on the Richter Scale, scientists are concerned.

Magma and steam permeate the rock beneath Yellowstone, and the motion of these fluids is thought to be responsible for the thousands of smaller earthquakes recorded in and around the park each year, scientists say.

The hundreds of tiny earthquakes could mean a more powerful volcanic eruption, and Yellowstone's volcano is capable of the most powerful eruptions on earth, according to scientific studies. So, when the park starts rattling a lot more than normal, observers pay attention.

Some scientists say the last eruption of Yellowstone's super volcano occurred about 640,000 years ago and blew 240 cubic miles of rock and dust into the sky. That's enough material to drastically change earth's climate, first scorching much of the United States from the heat released, and then cooling the whole planet by blocking out the sun.

Far lesser volcanic eruptions have cause earth's lights to go out. Ken Wohletz, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, said recently that the Dark Ages may have literally begun dark as the result of a 6th century eruption of Krakatoa, a volcanic island in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in Indonesia.

That eruption was believed to have shrouded the world in a thin veil of volcanic ash, casting a pall over the sun's light. Krakatoa is not even a super volcano.

This month's edition of Time magazine asks, "Could the current activity be the warning signs of another such apocalypse?" The United States Geological Survey isn't sure, but has warned of an earthquake similar to the one on August 17, 1959, when the park was rattled by a 7.5 shaker. It caused landslides that killed 28 people, dammed one of Yellowstone's rivers, and left $11 million in damage.

  1. I'll bet if Yellowstone blows, it will be within days of the US interfering in the affairs of Yisrael. That seems to be the pattern established over the past few years.

    I'd urge the US government to be very, very careful when playing around with the apple of G-d's eye.

    Yeshua is coming soon, folks... look up, our redemption draws near!

  2. I'd agree! But regardless of any U.S. tinkering the rapture is set to happen at a time we least expect it. The Rapture is going to happen soon. So we must look up and expect HIS Call for HIS Bride!

  3. This reply is to what Don just mentioned. I feel it should be clarified, though. The pattern of US interfering with the affairs of Israel is very nicely described on the http://www.prophecyinthenews.com - I'm not sure if you'd have access to the daily videos that they posted some months ago, though. Anyway, there seems to be a definite chronological relationship between disasters like Katrina and US' meddling in the affairs dealing with the sovereignty of Israel. This seems to be a pattern, at least to me.

  4. Fascinating. Could be the means by which God darkens the sun during the tribulation period, as spoken of in the book of Revelation. We don't know the day or hour, but it's clear Jesus is coming soon.

  5. God is not going to plunish the U.S for helping one of their allies fight a battle that needs to be fought for. A loving God does not pluish a whole country for helping the allies! I believe you all are extremely mislead! And it looks like Don is a little racist towards the U.S seeing the Jesus said that the entire world could recieve salvation for him as long as they would call upon his name! Isreal has no special position.....In fact most of isreal has not even recognized Jesus was God's son.

  6. You mess with the apple of God's eye, which is Israel, you are in trouble. The US has done so time after time through the years, and Bill Koenig has it documented in a book called "Eye to Eye," check it out at .

    Most people do not realize that the pre-trib rapture theory was never taught in the church until the 1800's, then Scofield put it in his study Bible as notes, and people took it as Scripture. The early church fathers never looked for such a thing, and a careful study of Scripture reveals that trouble will come first. Mostly this idea is taught in the western church, which has never had to face hard times like the rest of the planet, and so we hope for an early escape. A Chinese pastor once told Corrie Ten Boom that in China years ago, they used to preach pre-trib rapture, then the Communists took over the country, and most believers at that time were not prepared for the severe trouble and fell away. He told her to tell people to prepare themselves for tribulation. The Bible speaks of a great end-time apostasy, and perhaps a lot of this comes from people who felt they would be raptured out before great trouble, but when it comes, they question the Creator and then depart the faith. If we pre-trib out, great & hallelujah, but better to be prepared for a battle, spiritual and physical, than to be caught unaware.

  7. If this blows as a Super Volcano, say goodbye to everything you are familiar with. My advice to you is, today before you take another breath, get to know Jesus Christ. He is God's savior to mankind. "Today is the day of salvation".

  8. We are not out to harm Israel....We are aiding them when necessary. We are not dividing Israel! We are trying to keep an ally in the Midle East. I dont know where you guys are getting this point of view but its almost like you are hoping that the U.S is going to be cursed for helping one of their best allies...

  9. The United States has been encouraging Israel to give up more land so the Palestinians can form a Palestinian state. The United States has also proposed to divide Jerusalem as an appeasement to the Palestinian and Arab nations. This is not right. God gave the land to the Jews in Genesis and promised them it would be theirs forever.

    Also, there is a group of Jews called Jews for Christ(?). After the Ezekiel prophecy comes into fruition and the Jews realize that God is still with them, many will return to their faith (in practice, not just in inheritance). Many Jews will also be evangelizing in the 7-year tribulation period. So, don't count out the Jews as being or becoming believers in Christ.

    Israel's role in the Last Days is very important. As Christians and followers of Jesus Christ we need to be aware of this. How the United States deals with Israel is very important. We need to be watchmen to our families and friends...warn them of the coming smelter of the Lord. We need to put on the full armor of God and prepare for the spiritual and physical battle that has already begun.

    Shalom and God be with us...

  10. I totally agree with Mordie as far as being prepared for tribulation. I also believe that the words of Abraham still stand that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those that curse Israel will be cursed but also that we have been grafted in and that soon, when the last gentile accepts Yeshua as Christ then we will be brought back together as one people under and in and through Christ Jesus, King of King and Lord of Lord. I say we need to keep our eye on that eastern sky for our redemption draweth nigh. come, Lord Jesus, come quickly.

  11. this is for Luke, you need to take a serious look at the facts and not be so caught up in an end time view through American lenzes. the comment seemed to have been the USA' trying to divide the land God gave to Israel. Joel has prophesied the concequences of this and the USA has had too many events that corelate to their medling in these afaurs. never doubt that Israel is truel alon in this world and must be for they will have no other rescue than the comming mesiah.

  12. The Bible ( Genesis 12:3)says that whoever blesses Israel shall be blessed and whoever curses or harms Israel shall be cursed. I believe that one of the reasons the U.S. has been soooo blessed for soooo long is that we have helped Israel and continue to do so. However, it does seem that whenever we have advised Israel to do something that causes them to lose land that God promised to his people, we have a major disaster to contend with. If we want God to continue to bless us we must continue to bless and protect Israel, not convince them to give up their land.

  13. We know that at the end of times we will know more and more and a lot more will be revealed to us. This possibily is some of the knowledge to be given to us signaling the end of times. I agree that if you are not right with Jesus you should be.
    No man gains admittence except thru him.

  14. Birth Pains Are Not Judgment: Hype Versus Holy Scripture

    The earthquakes in Yellowstone are just that-- earthquakes (in diverse places) and nothing more.

    The whole 'Katrina' and other supposed 'judgements of God' connection is where private interpreters have cut and pasted together events that do not have any connection to do with the blessing and cursing of Israel in relationship to what America has done or has not done toward her. They are instead what Jesus (Yeshua) stated would take place as according to Matthew 24. The same day that 'Katrina' happened and then now this even in Yellowstone there were things that took place not reported in mainstream news. Every storm, earthquake, disease, flood, land slide, market crash, exposing of corruption in America isn't ALWAYS the Judgment of GOD against America because Condi Rice, or any other person from the US opened their mouth, stated their opinion and Israel listened. No one will stop Israel from being divided. It cannot ever be prevented. History flows according to the time line YHWH established 'before the conception of the universe'.

    The West, Tarshish, the Lions of Tarshish are not named in the Bible. America is NOT Babylon despite what a few fool hearty lovers of wrath say and those that buy into their lies.

    Sheba and Dedan for example will not experience judgment until the point when all nations align against the Holy City. We are not there yet, not even close.

    It seems that various battles in scripture (Armeggedon, the war from Ezekiel, the war at the end of the Millenium) get all lumped together much too often.

    The Bible states clearly that Israel will be humbled. This will not be prevented by long intercessory services, "harp and bowl" warfare, or any other desire upon the part of Christians since what is going to happen with Israel has been prophesied in scripture. When the right time comes, the "day and hour" then "all these things", ref. Matthew 24, will take place it will come suddenly and without mercy or grace remaining.

    At best one might say that the labor pains (birthing pains) are increasing and happening back to back faster than before so at best it means what is going to be 'birthed' is about to arrive. This should be a time then to rejoice for our deliverance is at hand.

    Prov. 17:19 -- He who loves transgression loves strife, and he who exalts his gate seeks destruction.

    A gate is a means to enter into a way, a path, a teaching, a doctrine. Those who love transgression love strife for it is their bread. They seek strife, they seek others who will partake with them and then fattened on the feast they gloat at the destruction and say "Aha! Aha!".

    We should be repenting, because this is what these 'signs' mean as we see happening in Yellowstone. Not repenting because America did this or signed that or did this (the Oslo accord wasn't even penned by an American, Bill Clinton, he was just the face they used because it was penned in Europe-- this is fact, but the media is hype --- they chose Clinton because if he did it it would make it seem more 'acceptable'. Where is the earthquake in Europe, the European Hurricane? Hmm?)

    Instead then of taking a web site's "private interpretation" (not speaking about Worthy News but other sites) those who are the Servants, the Friends, of YHWH (GOD) should be as good Bereans and test everything with the Tanakh and the B'rit Haddashah (OT & NT).

    ZECHARIAH 14:1-2 -- Behold, a day is coming for the LORD, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all ALL THE NATIONS AGAINST JERUSALEM to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. HALF OF THE CITY shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

    Come let us reason and compare Zech 14:1-2 with this:

    REVELATIONS 11:2 -- But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is GIVEN UNTO THE GENTILES: and THE HOLY CITY THEY SHALL TREAD UNDER FOOT FORTY AND TWO MONTHS (3 1/2 years).

    Let us reason even further then and ask some questions:

    Is the Holy City under control of Gentiles right now? No.

    Has the Holy City been under control by Gentiles for 3 1/2 years? No.

    This blessing and cursing of Israel is taken way out of hand when it comes to the United States by what seems to be those who will not be satisfied until America get's blamed for every single evil in the earth. I say if you live in the United States and hate it that much, move, to France or somewhere else that likes to nay say, back bite, and slander with false witness another people group.

    It is just utter non-sense, fear mongering, and conspiracy theory madness.

    The fact is the all the nations of the world, almost all, have at one time or another not acted well toward Israel. Blessing and cursing is not just reserved for natural disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, famine, etc. There are things such as 'leaness of soul', rebellion, disorder, disunity, that we can see YHWH bring to pass right along with that which is so oft used as hype for some one to sell their teaching materials and private interpretations of prophecy.

    Some say, "If we want God to continue to bless us we must continue to bless and protect Israel, not convince them to give up their land". My response...that is really immature exegesis of Scripture.

    A lot of this circular logic and rhetoric is based on what is reported in the news. What is reported in the news is what we are told, but not what is the truth. The truth is often buried, but we can find it if we want to. We have to seek, knock and ask.

    Consider as a final thought the Book of Daniel and that in Matthew 24 Jesus told the "reader to understand and read Daniel". The Head of Gold to the 10 Toes are a time line of sorts and American isn't Rome no matter what merchandiser prophet of Balaam says.

    Rome is in Europe and the truth is that despite the media reports, even those here which are often those things from AP and Reuters edited to be more 'right wing' and more 'Christian', Rome started and ends in Italy, not Washington D.C., not London, England, not Spain, not even Israel.

    Jesus said it would be "as the days of Noah".

    So here is a litmus test to see the real Believers and the fakes:

    Do you believe the Flood written about in Genesis is exactly what it says or just some epic poem and all figurative?

    If you don't believe that the Flood in "the Days of Noah" were literal then you'll over-spiritualize the Bible especially in respect to prophecy.

    The "Days of Noah" happened once and one time only and exactly as we can read. The time of Jacob's Trouble will happen once and one time only exactly as we can read.

    If you want to say that this has a ONLY a 'spiritual' meaning concerning America, Israel, Europe, etc. and it not be LITERALLY what it says with the exception of those places where what is seen by the writer (I.e. What John saw when THE SPIRIT, not John by the way, caught him up and SHOWED HIM what he saw which means it wasn't something he was confused about like Hal Lindsay presents because anytime he was asked "what is that you saw" he'd say "I don't know..." and then either an angel, one of the creatures or an elder would tell him) that are then detailed. Jesus did it all the time, come on people get a grip and grow up, when he'd tell a parable, but not tell those who WERE NOT his disciples. Later though, He'd, fill them in and let them know what this meant and that meant, because they were his friends.

    John 15:14 -- I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

    We are told as GOD's servants AND as his friends the secret things of GOD:

    1 Corinthians 4:1-5 -- So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. 3 care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me. Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men's hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.

    What those who are saying that Yellowstone's shaking and Katrina are happen to be what the Bible calls 'false teachers' because we are to "judge nothing before the appointed time" but "wait till the LORD COMES" for "He will bring to light what is HIDDEN IN DARKNESS and WILL EXPOSE THE MOTIVES MEN" then "each will receive his praise from GOD".

    Romans 16:17 & 18 tells us to "mark" them that teach false doctrines:

    I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them. For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.

    Acts 2:42 tells us that "teaching you have learned" is:

    They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

    2 Cor. 11-3-6 -- But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent's cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough. But I do not think I am in the least inferior to those "super-apostles." I may not be a trained speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way.

    Let YHWH be found true and everyman a liar.

  15. I love you! You truely have acquired much wisdom!! I wish God would fill me with knowledge so I could be a better witness and answer every question with the truth found only in the scriptures. God bless your day!

  16. Might I remind everyone that the bible says no one but god knows when the end times will be. Natural Disasters happen its a fact of life. Just cause one happens doesn't mean the end of the world. Please remember this isn't 600,000 years ago when humanity was pushed to the edge of extinction over one of these eruptions. We have the technology to ride this out. Sadly it will be people with alot of money and influence who will get help first. But we will survive. The simple irrefutable fact is know one knows when the end will come. And as for the rapture, sorry to break it to you some people might go that way alot will not some will be left behind to continue ministering. God doesn't promise us an easy way out. Christians have been abused and tortured over the years ( And sadly Christians have done alot of abusing in torture of other people and faiths) for there faith in god . Be christian doesn't make you exempt for that. So buckle up and get ready for a bumpy ride cause god says he will come when we least expect it not when we think want or will it
