9/15 - NEWS UPDATES

Interesting:

Six small earthquakes shake San Jose, California

Mary Greeley has a short youtube on this quake:

California, Bay Area, M3.3 Earthquake, Milpitas, Concord fault

Hurricane Jose is tracking west, could impact Hatteras

The name 'Jose' is the Spanish variant of Joseph. Joseph was the 11th son of Jacob in the Bible. Joseph means 'he will add.' Joseph is associated with a number of things in the Bible but probably most notable 7 years of famine.

gg note: I have 2 observations here -- 1) this is the premise of the George Clooney movie Tomorrowland, in which the young people are gathered together to solve 'tomorrow's' problems, most of which are, yes, you guessed it -- climate change. 2) Why is Obama hosting a 'global' summit on problem-solving if this is the role of the U.N., which Obama pushed repeatedly in his 8 years as President?

TIMELINE THRU SEPT 23, UPDATED 9/14

Update 9/16: Tropical storm Maria forms in the Atlantic Saturday afternoon

The name 'Maria' is a variant of 'Mary.' The name can mean, among other things, 'wished for child.' One of the most well-known of the name is Mary, the mother of Jesus. Behindthename.com writes, "Due to the Virgin Mary this name has been very popular in the Christian world."

---------------------------------------

Yes, I have been hearing for some time of the Revelation 12 sign. Many believe it indicates perhaps the best time yet for the Rapture of the Church, which is the true believers in Jesus Christ, the ones who are watching for his return. It may happen, I certainly hope so.

Others believe it does not indicate the Rapture but perhaps a time of trouble for Israel. That's always a possibility. We really don't know. But the Revelation 12 sign took on new significance for me when I watched Pastor Biltz's YouTube about the U.N. announcing a year of 'peace and safety.'

1 Thessalonians 5:3 says . . .

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

The Revelation 12 sign is about a pregnant woman in travail. I have the YouTube below where Pastor Steve Ciccolanti explains that sign and other scriptures that relate to a woman in pain with child. The Revelation 12 sign follows barely TWO days after the U.N.'s global 'peace and safety' announcement. 

Coincidence?

Since the eclipse, MILLIONS of people have had to flee from someplace in this country from impending disaster. Hundreds of thousands fled Houston to escape Hurricane Harvey. Thousands have fled 80 wildfires in the U.S. West, including Oregon, Washington, California, Utah, Idaho, and Montana. Now the media outlets are reporting that 5 MILLION have fled Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma.

Some have noted that total solar eclipses can indicate war. North Korea claims to have detonated a hydrogen bomb (noted below) and now Israel has struck a military target inside of Syria (something that could be seen as provocative to some, also noted below).

There is much to watch. But in particular, the U.N.'s claim that their upcoming year will be one of 'peace and safety' for all is probably not going to come to pass.

With all this in mind, I've decided to create a timeline of events leading up to September 23. Let's watch and see what happens.

--------------------------------

SEPT 23: The Great Revelation 12 sign. Pastor Steve Ciccolanti (see footnote below) explains its significance in this October 1, 2016 YouTube. In this YT Ciccolanti notes (in October 2016) that something significant may happen December 23, 2016, as part of the Revelation 12 sign. Well, something did happen that was very significant -- that's when the U.N. Security Council passed Resolution 2334 demanding that Israel stop all settlement building stating it is not helpful to the two-state solution. This is the resolution that Obama refused to veto. I am just wondering if this could possibly be the 'covenant' with many that the Antichrist will confirm (Daniel 9:27), instead of, say, the Oslo Accords. I don't know. But if the Rapture happens, then my question doesn't matter.

Anyhow, just in case it is significant to the Revelation 12 sign, my timeline begins with the December 23 resolution.




SEPT 22:

SEPT 21: U.N. to announce its new theme: Peace and Safety. Pastor Mark Biltz explains in this Youtube.




SEPT 20:

SEPT 19:

SEPT 18:

SEPT 17:

SEPT 16:

SEPT 15:

SEPT 14: North Korea Crisis Escalates With Launch of New Missile Over Japan

SEPT 13: US military observes North Korean missile launchers being prepared
North Korea threatens to 'sink' Japan into the sea and to reduce the US to 'ashes and darkness'
Venezuela no longer accepting US dollars as payment for its oil
Hurricane Jose looks like it is strengthening some again, and some models take it very close to NYC
SEPT 12: Iran refuses to allow IAEA inspectors at its military sites to verify nuclear activity is not taking place, claim inspections were not part of Obama's nuclear agreement and would not have signed if it were.

SEPT 11: North Korea observes 9/11 with threat of ‘Greatest Pain and Suffering in History’ to America in retaliation for pushing new sanctions thru U.N.



SEPT 10: Extremely dangerous Hurricane Irma makes landfall at Cudjoe Key in lower Florida Keys
4th X-class flare: X8.2 erupts from Region 2673, second strongest of the cycle, glancing blow expected late on 9/13

SEPT 9:

SEPT 8: 8.1 earthquake strikes Mexico off the coast near Guatemala. It is the strongest quake in 100 years.

SEPT 7: Israel strikes military facility deep inside of Syria.
Third solar flare, an X1.3, erupts from AR2673.

SEPT 6: Powerful, long duration X2.2 solar flare erupts from earth-facing sunspot AR2673. Later, a second flare, an X9.3 erupts from AR2673.

SEPT 5: Irma becomes a CAT 5.
Pastor Mark Biltz shows a very interesting connection between Hurricane Harvey and the eclipse.

SEPT 4: Irma becomes a CAT 4.

SEPT 3: North Korea claims to have detonated a hydrogen bomb, triggering a 6.3 earthquake; claims they can fit inside an ICBM.
5.3 hits Idaho, followed by a number of aftershocks.

AUG 30: Irma becomes tropical storm.

AUG 30: Harvey finally moves away from Houston, leaving historic flooding in its wake and record rainfall at 51". Houston is left devastated. Damage is widespread and extensive. Some report that the cost to rebuild Houston may exceed the costs to rebuild New Orleans after Katrina.

AUG 27: Hurricane Irma forms as a wave off the Africa coast.

AUG 26: Harvey becomes a CAT 4 hurricane, the first CAT 4 to hit Texas since Carla in 1961.

AUG 25: Victoria Coates joins Kushner's team. Harvey intensifies to a CAT 3 hurricane.

AUG 24: Harvey goes from a tropical depression to a hurricane.

AUG 23: Netanyahu warns Russia that he will bomb Assad if Iran is allowed to continue to expand in Syria.

AUG 21: A total solar eclipse passes over the U.S., beginning at Madras, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. It passes over multiple cities with the name 'Salem,' as well as four major earthquake areas: Cascadia subduction zone, southern region of Yellowstone, New Madrid Seismic Zone and Charleston, S.C., the site of an historic earthquake in 1886. Once leaving the U.S. the eclipse ends in the Atlantic Ocean, crossing over 2 tropical storms, Many Bible students, prophecy watchers and some preachers claim that the total solar eclipse could be warning of judgment(s) coming upon the U.S. Predictably, thousands take to Twitter and social media to scoff.

Politico reports that while Americans were watching the eclipse, Jared Kushner left for the Middle East, to work on negotiating a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

Let's see if anything changes in America that looks like 'judgment.' A useful rule of thumb is if people have to flee to save their lives.

JAN 16, 2017: Trump announces that he has tasked his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, with brokering a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

DEC 23, 2016: UNSC passes Resolution 2334, which demands that Israel stop ALL settlement activity. President Obama chooses not to use his veto option, thus stabbing Israel in the back.

--------------------------------

Steve Ciccolanti note: I have only watched a handful of his videos, so I am not aware of all of his teachings. I am sure there are some things which I might not agree with him. However, I think on this teaching about Revelation 12, he is in agreement with others I've heard teaching about it.

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

SEPT 23 - PASTOR JOHN KILPATRICK

Pastor John Kilpatrick has a 2-part teaching about September 23. He is cautious (maybe reluctant?) to say the Rapture will happen, but he gives his reasons as to why he's watching that timeframe.

(As a PS: I really like his teaching on the Parable of the Good Samaritan.)

9/8 - IRMA UPDATES, SOLAR FLARES AND EARTHQUAKES

Programming note: I have a post I am working on for tmro. Check back in the morning if you would like.

--------------------------------------

Monster Hurricane Irma:

"Devastating" Hurricane Irma Flattens "Most Solid" Buildings On Caribbean Island

"Monster" Irma Is Now The Strongest Atlantic Hurricane On Record As Florida Preps For "Catastrophe"

Irma could impact every major city in Florida

Irma Is Being Described As A ‘Nuclear Hurricane’ That Has Left One Island ‘Practically Uninhabitable’

John McTernan: Hurricane Irma

Peace Process:

President Trump's vacation home, the 'Southern White House' at Mar-a-Lago, is in the path of Irma and has been evacuated.

'Trump, whose waterfront Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, could take a direct hit from the storm, has already approved emergency declarations for Florida . . . '

As readers of this blog know, this blog follows the confluence of the U.S. pushing Israel on the peace process, and we know that President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who Trump appointed in January to head his Mideast peace team, just returned from a meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu on that very subject.

FLASHBACK, OCT 1991:

Houston resident President George H.W. Bush began the ‘land for peace process’ in Israel on October 30, 1991.

Madrid Conference of 1991 (Wikipedia)

Houstonian G.H.W. Bush birthed the peace-process, Dallasite G.W. Bush birthed the two-state plan, Houston floods and Texas catastrophes

'The Perfect Storm' of October 1991, began as an area of low pressure off Canada, was forced south by a ridge, moving it over warmer waters, which birthed it into a hurricane (which was never named)that struck Massachusetts and Maine.

1991 Perfect Storm (Wikipedia):

'. . . more than 100 homes were affected in Maine, including the vacation home of then-President George H. W. Bush.'

Reports are that Hurricane Irma will be WORSE than Hurricane Andrew of 1992. Hurricane Andrew has a connection to the peace process as well.

Here is an excerpt from John McTernan's As America Has Done to Israel (2008):

On August 24, 1992, the Madrid Peace Conference moved to Washington, D.C. The nations involved felt the United States was a better location for continuing the negotiations. The United States representative was the Acting Secretary of State, Lawrence Eagleburger. The New York Times quoted Eagleburger about the opening of the talks as follows:

The peace talks were resuming "in the context of an Israeli Government that is prepared to be far more forth coming." He predicted that the issue of Palestinian self-rule in the Israeli-occupied territories would be the focus of discussion."

On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew smashed into southern Florida, hitting Louisiana a few days later. Hurricane Andrew was the worst natural disaster, up to this time, ever to hit America. This storm left one hundred and eighty thousand homeless in Florida, and another twenty-five thousand homeless in Louisiana. . . . This was an awesome category five hurricane with top winds recorded at over 175 miles per hour. The winds were even stronger, but the hurricane destroyed the anemometer, the wind speed device, before the eye hit. The winds may have reached 200 miles per hour or higher! . . . Hurricane Andrew struck just a few hours before the Madrid peace conference in Washington, D.C.


--------------------------------------

Solar flares and earthquakes:

The sun has fired off 3 X-flares in the past few days.

SEPT 7: 3rd X-class solar flare: Major X1.3 flare erupts from Region 2673, CME produced

SEPT 6: Major X-class flare: X9.3 from geoeffective AR 2673, CME produced - the strongest flare of the current cycle

SEPT 6: Powerful, long-duration X2.2 solar flare erupts from geoeffective AR 2673

Some researchers believe that there is a correlation between strong solar flares that are earth-impacting and subsequent earthquakes.

BPEarthWatch noted what he believed to be the first earthquake resulting from the first solar flare. It was a 6.1 off the coast of Japan on September 7.

Earthquakes Begin / Another X-flare / CME

Now, this morning, we've had an 8.1 in Mexico near the Guatemalan border. Some reports are saying there are reports that it was felt as far north as Austin, TX.

Mexico Shaken By "Most Powerful Earthquake In A Century", At Least 15 Dead

PEACE PLAN and HARVEY HELL

Peace Plan:

Times of Israel is reporting that Trump to present plan for reviving peace talks.

Algemeiner is reporting that Kushner Asks Abbas to Hold off on Anti-Israel Diplomatic Initiatives to Give Trump Administration Time to Formulate Peace Plan

Kushner and his team met with Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday. On Thursday, Harvey exploded from a tropical storm into a Category 4 hurricane.

Watch hurricane Harvey explode from a tropical depression to a Cat 4 hurricane

The Weather Channel has compared the rainfall from Harvey to the historic rainfall from Tropical Storm Allison. I wrote a post about Allison in June of 2011.

ALLISON AND TENET

Harvey Hell:

It just seems like Katrina all over again. A week ago today Americans everywhere were watching an amazing eclipse go across the United States. Exactly one week later, thousands of people are trying to escape the worst flooding event to ever hit Houston, and it's ongoing because of the first Category 4 hurricane to hit Texas since 1961. And there's a tropical system off Charleston, where the eclipse left the U.S. For those of us who remember watching Katrina on TV, the scenes coming out of Houston are eerily similar.

HURRICANE HARVEY UPDATE

By now I am sure all of you know that Hurricane Harvey became a Category 4 hurricane just before coming ashore last night. Apparently it is the strongest to hit the Texas coastline since Hurricane Carla in 1961. I listened to the Weather Channel late into the night last night, and they kept mentioning Victoria, Texas. Harvey seemed to made a beeline for it. I haven't had much time to look for articles today, so I don't have links to any stories about Victoria, but I found it interesting that another Victoria was in the news a day or so ago as Victoria Coates joined Jared Kushner's team this week.

I also found one article on the peace process that I thought is interesting.

Mort Klein – The Impossible Deal: Establishing a Peaceful Palestinian Arab State That Accepts the Jewish State

I've not seen any news yet as to when Kushner's team will be returning from the Middle East.

Added this report from Victoria, Texas, around 7:30 p.m.

HURRICANE HARVEY, PEACE PROCESS and NEWS UPDATES

All eyes are on Hurricane Harvey as he bears down on Texas' coastline.

Zerohedge: Harvey To Make Landfall As Cat 3 Hurricane, Bring 40 Inches Of Rain: Latest Updates

Here is the screenshot from Breitbart:



I've been watching the Weather Channel since yesterday afternoon, and a couple of reporters, including Jim Cantore, have noted that Harvey reminds them of Katrina. Do you remember when Katrina formed? It was August 23, 2005, and it began as a tropical wave over the Bahamas. President George W. Bush had pressured Ariel Sharon to pull Israelis (even from their graves!) out of Gush Katif. That withdrawal had taken 2 weeks, and we saw images on TV of Israeli soldiers pulling people from their homes. On the last day of the pullout Katrina formed.

Hurricane Katrina

Here is some news that slipped in yesterday. Victoria Coates, a Republican GOP Foreign Policy advisor was asked to join Kushner and Greenblatt's team. Coates has been an advisor to Ted Cruz (in his failed 2016 presidential bid), and to Rick Perry (in his failed 2012 presidential bid), and as advisor to Donald Rumsfeld on a book he wrote in 2011. Rumsfeld served as George W. Bush's Secretary of Defense. Cruz, Perry, and Bush are all from Texas. Greenblatt is from Pennsylvania.

Yes, perhaps our first hurricane to hit Texas in years, Hurricane Harvey:

It ramped up yesterday.

Harvey regenerates, hurricane and storm surge watches issued for Texas coast

And, of course, gas prices always go up when the supply chain is threatened.

Hurricane Harvey Set To Wreak Havoc On Texas Crude Production And Refining Capacity

Severe weather and pushing Palestinian statehood have long gone hand-in-hand. But so has turmoil in the economy.  Since I am adding the second half of all the 'GREAT QUESTIONS' I had bookmarked, Zerohedge has a great question about the economy this morning.

Did the economy just stumble off a cliff?

As Kushner is in Israel, Yellen is in Jackson Hole, there's a great question about that, too.

First an update on Jared Kushner's trip to Israel:

Kushner arrived in Cairo to meet with Egyptian officials . . .

but Egypt is angry with President Trump for canceling some military aid, so they refused to meet with Kushner.

THE ECLIPSE AND KUSHNER

Politico reports:

While everyone was busy gazing into the solar eclipse on Monday, White House adviser Jared Kushner quietly snuck away to the Middle East for a trip that will take him to the Persian Gulf and Israel.

Kushner in Middle East for peace talks

I was really hoping that Kushner would not be leaving for Israel on the day of the eclipse.

But he did. Kushner's team will be visiting several Mideast countries. He will be in Israel on Wednesday.

The Seven Salems of the Eclipse - Coincidence?

Arab leaders, ahead of Kushner's visit, emphasize ‘no peace’ without Palestinian State and '67 borders, and 'no peace' without East Jerusalem

On the same day as the eclipse:

USS John S. McCain damaged in a collision on the same day as the solar eclipse

President Trump gives first 'Commander-in-Chief' speech to nation, explains ramp-up against Taliban in Afghanistan

And first thing this morning, our US Treasury announced sanctions against several Chinese and Russian companies and individuals over North Korea's WMD program.

Furious China responds to latest US sanctions, demand the US immediately correct the 'the mistake,' or face repercussions

Watching and praying for the peace of Jerusalem.
