|Coming Mega-Quake Will Be Worst Natural Disaster in North American History
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 04:11 PM PDT
The last time the Juan de Fuca oceanic plate jolted under the North American plate, unleashing a 9.0 earthquake, was in 1700. With the event scheduled to happen once every 500 years or so, we are due for another any day now. Although it’s not clear what will happen when this mega quake does hit, researchers at the University of Washington recently presented 50 possible scenarios of how the event might unfold. Earthquakes are typically measured using the Richter scale, named after the geologist who invented it in the 1930s.
The scale is numbered from 0-10, although no magnitude 10 earthquake has ever been observed, making a 9.0 one of the most powerful quakes in recorded history. The predicted earthquake dubbed the “Really Big One,” will take place where the Juan de Fuca and North American plates meet along Cascadia subduction zone, just north of the San Andreas fault line. The earthquake would affect those living in coastal Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Northern California, READ MORE

Posted: 03 Nov 2017 03:55 PM PDT
A mysterious boom shook homes in Bridgewater, New Jersey on November 1, 2017. A day later, San Diego residents reported loud booms and sensations of shaking. But nobody knows why. The mystery booms are increasing again across the US. Two days in a row, Nov. 1st and Nov. 2nd, loud and still unexplained booms have rattled homes on both sides of the USA: New Jersey and California.
The mysterious loud boom in Bridgewater, New Jersey – November 1, 2017 Residents in the Bridgewater and Branchburg area are reporting what sounded like a loud explosion around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday night.

|DEVELOPING: Strongest typhoon in 16 years set to slam Vietnam
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 03:47 PM PDT
Typhoon “Damrey” is expected to slam into southern Vietnam around UTC midnight on November 4 (07:00 local time) with maximum sustained winds of 140 km/h (86 mph), likely the strongest typhoon to make landfall over southern Vietnam in 16 years. This tropical cyclone is expected to have a high humanitarian impact based on the storm strength and the affected population in the past and forecasted path. Up to 2.4 million people can be affected by wind speeds of cyclone strength or above. Authorities
in Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan and Binh Thuan, provinces that are likely to be affected by the typhoon, have developed plans to evacuate a total of 389 143 people, according to the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control. Earlier on Thursday, the search and rescue committee in Phu Yen already evacuated 759 households with 1 958 residents in flooded areas to safe places, Tuoi Tre News reports. CONTINUE
|Scientists warn that Mt.Tiede volcano could produce “Mega-Eruption”
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 03:40 PM PDT
Mount Tiede could erupt soon as scientists reveal the Tenerife rock could actually be a mega volcano. Fears have been mounting in Tenerife that the volcano could be about to blow after 22 quakes hit the popular holiday spot over the weekend. The biggest island in the Canaries was hit by a seismic swarm of
22 earthquakes between Saturday, October 28 and Tuesday from Mount Teide. And new research has shown that leftover magma from old volcanoes on the popular island could have come together to create a super volcano. Giant landslides caused by volcano explosions pushes fiery magma through cracks in the earth’s crust to form a new volcano “of greater or equal size” to the previous one. CONTINUE
|California Wildfires Resulted In 14,720 Homes Destroyed, 43 Deaths, $3.3 Billion Loss
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 02:10 PM PDT
The wildfires that ravaged parts of California in October caused at least $3 billion in insured losses, a total of 14,720 damaged or destroyed homes, and nearly 3,200 personal vehicle losses, officials said Tuesday. As of November 2, the death toll stands at 43. Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones announced Tuesday, October 31 the new total of insured losses from the October wildfires in California now tops $3 billion. This is a three-fold increase in just two weeks. However, the number is still expected to climb, according to California Department of Insurance officials.
“As shocking as $3 billion in insured losses are, the number is sure to grow, as more claims are coming,” Jones said. “The insured losses only tell part of the tragic story of the October fires. We must remember that 43 people lost their lives and behind every insurance claim is someone who has lost their home, their business, and their precious memories. It will take years for these communities to recover and rebuild.” CONTINUE
|STD outbreak that causes blindness on the rise…
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 02:03 PM PDT
New reports have revealed that there is currently an “outbreak” of ocular syphilis – the sexually transmitted infection that can make you go blind. According to the Centres for Disease Control, there were 12 cases of this STI reported in the four months between December 2014 to March 2015, with a further 200 cases reported in the US over the past two years. The CDC say this is suggestive of an
outbreak. Most of the cases are found in HIV-infected homosexual men but a small number of cases have occurred in non-HIV-infected heterosexual men and women. As the infection can result in going blind, this has prompted the CDC to issue a warning to doctors to look out for the signs with patients. The symptoms you need to look out for with a syphilis infection include:
|Iran urges help from Russia to ‘isolate the Americans’ by ditching dollar
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 06:32 AM PDT
The best way to beat US sanctions against Iran and Russia is joint efforts to dump the American currency in bilateral trade, according to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. “By ignoring the negative propaganda of the enemies, that seek to weaken relations between countries, we can nullify US sanctions, using methods such as eliminating the dollar and replacing it with national currencies in transactions between two or more parties; thus, isolate the Americans,” he said on Wednesday at a
meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Tehran. According to Khamenei, economic relations have vast room for improvement. “In the transportation sector, we can expand cooperation, using the main axis of Chabahar port to the port of Saint Petersburg, as well as in other economic areas,” he said. During the meeting, which lasted about an hour and a quarter, Putin replied that Russia considers Iran “a strategic partner and a great neighbor, and we will take advantage of every opportunity to expand and consolidate relationships in all dimensions.” READ MORE
|7 Las Vegas Shooting Witnesses Now Dead Within 1 Month of Attack
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 06:28 AM PDT
One month on from the Las Vegas shooting massacre on October 1st, and we still have no satisfactory answers for horrific events that took place at the Route 91 Harvest music festival.The mainstream media has all but given up on reporting on the attacks, now that it seems as though the public has swallowed the “lone wolf” shooter narrative, that claims Stephen Paddock acted alone in killing 59 people and injuring hundreds more.In the month that followed the incident, a staggering seven key witnesses have
died in very suspicious circumstances.Of all of those seven people, every single one of them had something in common, other than being there during the shooting: They all had information on the attack that contradicted the “official” narrative.What’s even more suspicious is that four of those seven eyewitnesses had given accounts that stated there was more than one shooter, and others died before they had a chance to speak. As the MSM and sits back, safe in the knowledge it pushed the failing “lone wolf” shooter narrative onto the public, people who hold vital information about the actual events that took place are being silenced.

|How Martin Luther Confronted False Prophets—And Why We Need to Follow Suit Today
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 06:19 AM PDT
(By Eddie Hyatt) The Reformation opened the door to all sorts of wild theories about the church, the end of the world and the kingdom of God and how it would be established. Some said the kingdom of God would be established by God’s people taking up the sword, slaying the wicked and establishing righteousness by force. Other said it would be established by a “second commissioning” of apostles and prophets who would go forth with such power, signs and wonders that no one would be able to resist them. It was within this milieu of religious fervor and expectation that Luther had his notorious run-in with the
“Prophets of Zwickau.” While he was hiding in the Castle of Wartburg, after his condemnation at the Diet of Worms, three men from Zwickau came to Luther’s hometown of Wittenberg, which was the center of the Reformation. Led by a weaver named Nicholas Storch, they claimed divine visions, dreams and visits from the angel Gabriel. Storch and his two friends wowed the people with their revelations and began taking the reform movement in Wittenberg in a radical direction that was not compatible with Luther’s desire or with Scripture. Luther was for gradual change as a result of the people’s hearts being changed by the preaching of the Word. CONTINUE
|Man Gives Free Haircuts To Homeless On Street Corners So Stranger Buys Him His Own Barbershop
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 06:13 AM PDT
Brennon Jones loves cutting hair, but there’s one thing he loves even more: cutting hair for the homeless. He’s been at it for a while now and knows how much of a difference it make in each person’s life. In fact, he gives much more than haircuts as part of his Haircuts for the Homeless campaign. According to Fox 35, Brennon says his haircuts are totally free. Additionally, he feeds them and provides them with clothing and toiletries. Brennon describes it as a makeover for the inside and outside, giving each homeless person a new look and newfound confidence. When a stranger named Sean Johnson
found out about Brennon’s mission and the trouble he would have continuing into the winter, he decided to sacrifice the expansion of his own barbershop and opened up a new one — just for Brennon. In the video below, posted on October 30, 2017, Sean explains: “It wasn’t about me giving a barbershop. I looked at it more as I built something and I want to see it keep going and I want to see it do a great thing.” CONTINUE
|Artificial Intelligence may replace humans’ & become new form of life – Stephen Hawking
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 06:04 AM PDT
One day robots could entirely edge out human beings and become a new life form that is even capable of replicating itself, Stephen Hawking has warned, once again predicting a rather grim future for humankind. “I fear that AI may replace humans altogether,” the renowned physicist told Wired magazine, as cited by the Cambridge News. “If people design computer viruses, someone will design AI
that improves and replicates itself. This will be a new form of life that outperforms humans,” Hawking added. However, humanity itself has already reached “the point of no return” and may destroy itself first, the 75-year-old academic predicts. “Our earth is becoming too small for us, global population is increasing at an alarming rate and we are in danger of self-destructing.” READ MORE
|Gigantic dinosaur-eating plane-size reptile discovered in Mongolia
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 05:59 AM PDT
A monstrous, meat-eating flying reptile that had a wingspan of a small airplane, could walk on all fours and stalked its prey on land has been found in the Gobi Desert of Mongolia. Fortunately for us humans, who would have made for a delightful midday snack, this pterosaur is dead. Long dead. Seventy million years dead. With an approximately 36-foot wingspan, “It might have been this quite robust, formidable
predator,” Mark Witton, an expert on pterosaurs at the University of Portsmouth in the U.K., told National Geographic. “They seem to be feeding on things on the ground and are generalist in their ability to grab basically whatever they can fit in their beaks.” Thankfully, that didn’t include humans, who weren’t around at the time. Scientists think this pterosaur had to settle for a diet of little dinosaurs. READ MORE
|The 10 Safest Countries If World War 3 Broke Out
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 05:54 AM PDT
World War Three fears have heightened in recent months as a conflict between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump escalates. These are the safest places to hide if world war does break out. North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un is said to be preparing another ballistic missile test. This has sparked fears of World War 3 breaking out if the North Korean leader decides to put his missiles into effect – especially given his conflict with US President Donald Trump. In an event of war, some are forced to move to different countries to avoid getting caught up in the action. The map below shows the safest countries to go to, according to the Global Peace Index.
Canada – Canada ranks 8 out of 163 countries on the Global Peace Index 2017. It maintained the same spot on the list from last year, with a score of 1.1 out of 5 for domestic and international conflict (the lower the better, in this case).
Denmark – While Denmark might suffer in a European conflict because of its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation status, it contains the remote, non politically aligned region of Greenland. FULL LIST
|The Rise Of American Christianity: Ticket to Heaven-on-Your-Own-Terms Gospel
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 05:47 AM PDT
(By Bert Farias) The future of America is an uncertain one. That old crafty serpent, the devil, has slithered his way into the core of our culture and is busy eroding the moral values that once made our nation great. America is no longer great because she is no longer good. A nation that outlaws the mention of God in the public square, celebrates the killing of its own children and destroys the most basic unit of society, the family, cannot survive much longer. I’m afraid that unless there is major heartfelt repentance and the glory of God is restored to the church, she will have to go underground, and our children and grandchildren will be living in a very different America than our ancestors knew. A recent Barna poll divides Americans into four religious categories, measuring their percentages of the American population:
Evangelical Christians (6 percent)
Non-evangelical born-again Christians (25 percent)
Notional or Mythical Christians (42 percent)
Adherents of non-Christian faiths (6 percent)
Religious skeptics (23 percent)
A most shocking belief system has been uncovered in the significant number of non-evangelical “born-again” Christians, which represents one-quarter of the American population, or approximately 81 million people. MORE
|Witchcraft and Occultism On the Rise in America
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 05:40 AM PDT
EXCERPT FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES:
supernatural technology for taking care of yourself when no one else will. Witchcraft, Bracciale said, lets you be the “arbiter of your own justice.” I suspect that this assumption of chaos — the sense that institutions have failed and no one is in charge — helps explain the well-documented resurgence of occultism among millennials. Attempts at spell-casting are obviously not unique to today’s young people; the Washington writer and hostess Sally Quinn just published a book in which she boasts about hexing the renowned magazine editor Clay Felker, my former journalism professor, before his death from cancer. Still, magic and witchcraft have a renewed cachet, one that seems related to our current climate of political and cultural breakdown. CONTINUE
|Deadly airborne plague in Madagascar now at ‘crisis’ point, Could reach 20,000 in weeks
Posted: 03 Nov 2017 05:35 AM PDT
The deadly airborne plague spreading rapidly across Madagascar is now at ‘crisis’ point as cases have rocketed by 37 percent in just five days, official figures reveal. The outbreak, the ‘worst in 50 years’, is being fueled by a strain more lethal than the one which usually strikes the country off the coast of Africa. The World Health Organization (WHO) now states there are 1,801 suspected cases – significantly higher than the 1,309 it reported last Thursday. Academics have revealed such a jump in cases over the period
of five days is concerning and have predicted it could get worse. The most recent statistics show there have been 127 deaths. Professor Robin May, an infectious diseases expert at Birmingham University, told MailOnline that ‘whichever way you look’ at the outbreak, it’s ‘concerning definitely’. Analysis of figures by MailOnline shows the epidemic could strike a further 20,000 people in just a matter of weeks if current trends continue. It could be made worse by crowds gathering for an annual celebration to honor the dead earlier this week. MORE

|132 dead seals wash up on the shores of Lake Baikal in Russia
Posted: 02 Nov 2017 06:09 PM PDT
The number of dead seals discovered on the shore of Lake Baikal in the Irkutsk Region and Buryatia has increased to 132, the Interfax agency in the Baikal interregional department of Rosprirodnadzor reported Tuesday. “Three carcasses of the dead seals have been raised at three sites of the Baikal coast near the village of Noviy Enkhaluk (Buryatia), near the village of Murino (Irkutsk Region) and along the Circum-Baikal Railway (between the villages of Port Baikal and Kultuk in the Irkutsk Region – IF). mass death of animals is established, “- said the assistant head of the department Irina Shushakova.
According to preliminary data, the largest number of dead animals – more than 90 – was found in Buryatia. In the Irkutsk region 39 carcasses were raised. Shushakova noted that the death of seals from any infection is not yet confirmed – the first samples gave a negative result. Poacher shooting is also excluded. Therefore, the main version is the natural cause – for example, death during a storm. READ MORE
|Balfour Declaration Was “Biblically-Based Miracle” Bringing Christians and Jews Together
Posted: 02 Nov 2017 05:46 PM PDT
The Balfour Declaration, a document that led to the establishment of the state of Israel, was the result of Biblically-based miracles, said a political expert on Thursday at a conference focused on continuing the path of Christian-Jewish cooperation begun by Balfour. Speaking at a panel named for the conference, “From Balfour to Nikki Haley: 100 Years of Christian Zionist Diplomacy”, Barry Shaw, Senior Associate for Public Diplomacy at the Israel Institute for Strategic Studies, noted that the Balfour Declaration was
not simply a political move. “The declaration was part of a series of modern miracles leading up to Messiah,” Shaw said. “A miracle is not a magic trick. It is something we can’t comprehend. When Allenby marched into Jerusalem one hundred years ago, he walked in on foot because, as a devout Christian, he believed that only the Messiah rides into Jerusalem on horseback. The motivations and energy behind the creation of Israel was a Biblically-based miracle.” READ MORE

|Facebook post claims DOD training will cause a massive blackout
Posted: 02 Nov 2017 05:25 PM PDT
Recently a viewer reached out to a local news station and inquired about a viral video she’s seen on the internet. You too have likely seen it too. It claims in just a few days, the entire country will go dark because of a Department of Defense training exercise. It’s causing a lot of panic, but is it News or Noise? In the video, the user claims, “November 4th through the 6th there will be an electronic magnetic pulse going through the entire continent of North America. Like Geo Storm. Like the movie Geo Storm.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: I recently had to clear up this confusion myself regarding this upcoming drill on our recent “Viewpoint Segment” which can be viewed HERE
The woman claims this Saturday there will be a massive blackout, but she doesn’t stop there. “It’s worse than a blackout, ok your car isn’t going to work, your phones aren’t going to work, nothing that got electricity going through it is going to work. A lot of people are going to die in America because generators aren’t going to work.” Her nearly eight-minute rant continues to trash the government agency that protects all Americans. “Go to the Department of Defense’s website, this is how much they really care about Americans. They aren’t even letting us know it’s going to happen, they’re saying it’s a drill.” READ MORE
With that brief question Jesus Christ confronted His followers with the most important issue they would ever face. He had spent much time with them and made some bold claims about His identity and authority. Now the time had come for them either to believe or deny His teachings.
Who do you say Jesus is? Your response to Him will determine not only your values and lifestyle, but your eternal destiny as well.
Consider what the Bible says about Him:
JESUS IS GOD
While Jesus was on earth there was much confusion about who He was. Some thought He was a wise man or a great prophet. Others thought He was a madman. Still others couldn’t decide or didn’t care. But Jesus said, “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30). That means He claimed to be nothing less than God in human flesh.
Many people today don’t understand that Jesus claimed to be God. They’re content to think of Him as little more than a great moral teacher. But even His enemies understood His claims to deity. That’s why they tried to stone Him to death (John 5:18; 10:33) and eventually had Him crucified (John 19:7).
C.S. Lewis observed, “You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to” (Mere Christianity [Macmillan, 1952], pp. 40-41).
If the biblical claims of Jesus are true, He is God!
JESUS IS HOLY
God is absolutely and perfectly holy (Isaiah 6:3), therefore He cannot commit or approve of evil (James 1:13).
As God, Jesus embodied every element of God’s character. Colossians 2:9 says, “In Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form.” He was perfectly holy (Hebrews 4:15). Even His enemies couldn’t prove any accusation against Him (John 8:46)
God requires holiness of us as well. First Peter 1:16 says, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
JESUS IS THE SAVIOR
Our failure to obey God—to be holy—places us in danger of eternal punishment (2 Thessalonians 1:9). The truth is, we cannot obey Him because we have neither the desire nor the ability to do so. We are by nature rebellious toward God (Ephesians 2:1-3). The Bible calls our rebellion “sin.” According to Scripture, everyone is guilty of sin: “There is no man who does not sin” (1 Kings 8:46). “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). And we are incapable of changing our sinful condition. Jeremiah 13:23 says, “Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.”
That doesn’t mean we’re incapable of performing acts of human kindness. We might even be involved in various religious or humanitarian activities. But we’re utterly incapable of understanding, loving, or pleasing God on our own. The Bible says, “There is none righteous, not even one; there is none who understands, there is none who seeks for God; all have turned aside, together they have become useless; there is none who does good, there is not even one” (Romans 3:10-12).
God’s holiness and justice demand that all sin be punished by death: “The soul who sins will die” (Ezekiel 18:4). That’s hard for us to understand because we tend to evaluate sin on a relative scale, assuming some sins are less serious than others. However, the Bible teaches that all acts of sin are the result of sinful thinking and evil desires. That’s why simply changing our patterns of behavior can’t solve our sin problem or eliminate its consequences. We need to be changed inwardly so our thinking and desires are holy
Jesus is the only one who can forgive and transform us, thereby delivering us from the power and penalty of sin: “There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
Even though God’s justice demands death for sin, His love has provided a Savior, who paid the penalty and died for sinners: “Christ … died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, in order that He might bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18). Christ’s death satisfied the demands of God’s justice, thereby enabling Him to forgive and save those who place their faith in Him (Romans 3:26). John 3:16 says, “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” He alone is “our great God and Savior” (Titus 2:13).
JESUS IS THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE OBJECT OF SAVING FAITH
Some people think it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you’re sincere. But without a valid object your faith is useless
If you take poison—thinking it’s medicine—all the faith in the world won’t restore your life. Similarly, if Jesus is the only source of salvation, and you’re trusting in anyone or anything else for your salvation, your faith is useless.
Many people assume there are many paths to God and that each religion represents an aspect of truth. But Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6). He didn’t claim to be one of many equally legitimate paths to God, or the way to God for His day only. He claimed to be the only way to God—then and forever.
JESUS IS LORD
Contemporary thinking says man is the product of evolution. But the Bible says we were created by a personal God to love, serve, and enjoy endless fellowship with Him
The New Testament reveals it was Jesus Himself who created everything (John 1:3; Colossians 1:16). Therefore He also owns and rules everything (Psalm 103:19). That means He has authority over our lives and we owe Him absolute allegiance, obedience, and worship.
Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.” Confessing Jesus as Lord means humbly submitting to His authority (Philippians 2:10-11). Believing that God has raised Him from the dead involves trusting in the historical fact of His resurrection—the pinnacle of Christian faith and the way the Father affirmed the deity and authority of the Son (Romans 1:4; Acts 17:30-31).
True faith is always accompanied by repentance from sin. Repentance is more than simply being sorry for sin. It is agreeing with God that you are sinful, confessing your sins to Him, and making a conscious choice to turn from sin and pursue holiness (Isaiah 55:7). Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (John 14:15); and “If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine” (John 8:31).
It isn’t enough to believe certain facts about Christ. Even Satan and his demons believe in the true God (James 2:19), but they don’t love and obey Him. Their faith is not genuine. True saving faith always responds in obedience (Ephesians 2:10).
Jesus is the sovereign Lord. When you obey Him you are acknowledging His lordship and submitting to His authority. That doesn’t mean your obedience will always be perfect, but that is your goal. There is no area of your life that you withhold from Him.
JESUS IS THE JUDGE
All who reject Jesus as their Lord and Savior will one day face Him as their Judge: “God is now declaring to men that all everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).
Second Thessalonians 1:7-9 says, “The Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. And these will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power.”
HOW WILL YOU RESPOND?
Who does the Bible say Jesus is? The living God, the Holy One, the Savior, the only valid object of saving faith, the sovereign Lord, and the righteous Judge.
Who do you say Jesus is? That is the inescapable question. He alone can redeem you—free you from the power and penalty of sin. He alone can transform you, restore you to fellowship with God, and give your life eternal purpose. Will you repent and believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?
