    The Last Days: Where Is The World Headed?

    For many people the 9.0 earthquake in Japan, the ensuing Tsunami, Nuclear Meltdown and spread of radioactive debris across the atmosphere, teamed with the Arab uprising in several countries, has caused a great pause in our questions for tomorrow.

    What is coming next? Where is all this leading? What does the Bible have to say about these events and are they an indication that we are living in the Last Days?

    In the last part of Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus began to explain what the conditions of the world would be like in the final days.

    Matthew 24:3-8 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”

    The disciples wanted to know when the last days would arrive and what would be the signs of Jesus’ return.

    Jesus said:

    The last days would be characterized by a great time of Deception.
    Many will come and claim to be the Christ.
    There will be many wars and rumors of wars.
    There will be Famines, Pestilences, and Earthquakes in various places.

  • Nuclear Meltdown and the Book of Revelation

    Nuclear Meltdown and the Book of Revelation

    Jeremiah 23:15 “Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; ‘Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, And make them drink the water of gall’ ”

    The term “Wormwood” is connected with judgment from God. It is not a mistake that the Holy Spirit chose this term here in describing this third objects contact with the fresh water supply of the earth.

    What intrigues me at this point is that the term “Wormwood” has also been used in describing nuclear events on the earth.

    The Russian word for “Wormwood” is “Chernobyl”

    The worst nuclear reactor meltdown tragedy in history happened at the Chernobyl Nuclear Facility on April 26, 1986 at 1:23 am in the Ukraine, Russia. Reactor four of the facility suffered a catastrophic increase in power that led to an explosion of the core and nuclear meltdown of the reactor. The explosion dispersed large quantities of nuclear material into the earth’s atmosphere and turned the fresh water supplies for hundreds of miles around Chernobyl “Bitter” or Poisonous and undrinkable.

    Isn’t it interesting that the term “Wormwood ” in the Book of Revelation is used to describe an event of the last days that has a long Biblical history of meaning “Judgement”.

    Second Explosion From Japanese Nuclear Plant

    Second Explosion From Japanese Nuclear Plant

    A second Hydrogen explosion has happened at Unit 3 of Fukushima Dai-ichi plant in northern Japan. Similar to Unit 1 at the same location, this new explosion is likely to have been cause by the same set of circumstances.

    Although the core of the Nuclear material is encased in a pill shaped structure made from 6 inch thick stainless steel, the explosion occurred inside the concrete containment building that surrounds the pill shaped Nuclear Vessel.

    The cause of the Hydrogen gas inside the concrete containment building comes from the Zirconium Alloy that lines the fuel rod assemblies. As the heat builds up inside the Nuclear Vessel, at about 4,000 degrees the Zirconium lining begins to melt. As this melting metal makes contact with the coolant in the Vessel the steam generated consists of Hydrogen gas that is highly combustible.

    The Anatomy of a Tsunami

    The Anatomy of a Tsunami

    Traveling at more than 500 miles an hour by the violent action of a displaced sea floor, volcanic eruptions, underwater landslides or tectonic earthquakes, massive amounts of sea water are thrust upward into a series of waves. Called a Tsunami (Tsoo-nah-mee) by the Japanese, the name of this ocean phenomenon comes from the Japanese words “Harbor Wave”.

    Traveling with the force of the entire ocean within the wave, these monsters of the deep are barely recognizable in the open sea. A ship traveling across the ocean would most likely not even detect a Tsunami moving at subsonic speeds as it passes underneath.

    It is only when the depth of water begins to decrease as land approaches, that these leviathans of the deep raise themselves into a force that can destroy an entire city in a few minutes.

    What is a Mega Tsunami?

    What is a Mega Tsunami?

    A mega-tsunami is simply a gigantic wave, one big enough to cross oceans and destroy cities. They can be thousands of feet high moving at supersonic speeds. They can be caused by huge meteors crashing into the ocean, or by massive landslides. No boat or building hit by a mega tsunami could survive. But now scientists believe that we could be sitting on a time bomb, that sooner or later one will destroy New York, Boston and Miami, and that nothing could stop it.

    When was the biggest tsunami?

    The largest tsunami in recorded history was in Lituya Bay, Canada, 1958. An earthquake measuring 8.3 on the Richter scale caused 40 million cubic metres of rock to fall into the sea. A wave more than half a kilometre high was created that surged through the bay devastating all in its path. This was not even a mega-tsunami, by these standards it was tiny, but it did show scientists what sort of wave a small landslide could cause. But what would be the effect of a big one?
