Apocalypse


“13 I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth.
14 “It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud,
15 and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh.”
Genesis 9
“16:8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was permitted to scorch people with fire.
16:9 Thus people were scorched by the terrible heat, yet they blasphemed the name of God, who has ruling authority over these plagues, and they would not repent and give him glory.”
Revelation 16

 

I was raised in a Protestant religion and I do believe in God, the creator of everything.
I do not wish to offend anyone, however the bible was not meant to be an exact historical
document. I believe that there was a great flood but I do not wish to argue about when it
occurred. There is a great flood story that appears in many ancient cultures.

The catalyst for my writing this article was a PBS NOVA TV show on last night that I had
seen before. However this time, I have emersed myself in facts regarding 2012 and the
coming years. An event that occurred about 12,900 years ago was featured. A band of
darkened soil was revealed that may be the result of an object, perhaps a comet, strking
the earth then. My memory was immediately jogged to some articles I had recently read.

Consider the following:

12,900 is half of 25,800, the cycle time of the earth pivoting on the plane of the
Milky Way Galaxy.

The alignment of the Holy Cross happens every 12,901 years.

12,900 years ago is close in time to the great flood and the destruction of Atlantis.

From the NOVA program last night.

“The most recent hypothesis, advanced by Kennett and 25 other scientists in a 2007 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences paper, concerns the proposed cosmic impact. Right about the time the Younger Dryas began and at least 15 of  those 35 extinct mammals and arguably the Clovis culture itself appear to vanish abruptly from the fossil record—that is, right about 12,900 years ago—Kennett et al see markers of a major catastrophe. The markers lie in a thin layer at the base of a “black mat” of soil that archeologists have identified at over 50 Clovis sites across North America.”

“Evidence for an extraterrestrial impact 12,900 years ago that contributed to the megafaunal extinctions and the Younger Dryas cooling”
“Nature of the Event.
The evidence points to an ET event with continent-wide effects, especially biomass burning, but the size, density, and composition of the impactor are poorly understood. Even so, current data suggest that this impactor was very different from well studied iron, stony, or chondritic impactors (e.g., at the K/T boundary). The evidence is more consistent with an impactor that was carbon-rich, nickel–iron-poor, and therefore, most likely a comet. Although the current geologic and geochemical evidence is insufficient to fully understand impact dynamics, we can offer speculation for future work.

“Toon et al. (46) also noted that if airbursts explode with energy of 107 megatons at optimum height, they will cause blast damage over an area the size of North America that is equivalent to a ground impact of 109 megatons (figure 5 in ref. 46). Such airbursts effectively couple the impactor’s kinetic energy with the atmosphere or surface (47, 48), producing devastating blast waves well above hurricane force (70 m·s-1) (46). In 1908, at Tunguska, Siberia, a object <150 m in diameter, either a carbonaceous asteroid or a small, burned-out comet, produced a <15-megaton airburst with an intense fireball (107 °C) that scorched ˜200 km2 of trees and leveled ˜2,000 km2 of forest yet produced no crater or shock metamorphism (49). A debris shower from a heavily fragmented comet (11) would have produced an airburst barrage that was similar to, although exponentially larger than Tunguska, while causing continent-wide biomass burning and ice -sheet disruption, but again possibly, without typical cratering.”

Environmental Effects.
The YD event would have created a devastating, high-temperature shock wave with extreme overpressure, followed by underpressure, resulting in intense winds traveling across North America at hundreds of kilometers per hour, accompanied by powerful, impact-generated vortices (50–52). In addition, whether single or multiple objects collided with Earth, a hot fireball would have immersed the region near the impacts and would have been accentuated if the impact angles were oblique (46, 53). For comparison, Svetsov (48) calculated that a Tunguska-sized airburst would immerse the ground with a radiation flux severe enough to ignite 200 km2 of forest within seconds. Thus, multiple, larger airbursts would have ignited many thousands of square kilometers. At greater distances, the reentry of high-speed, superheated ejecta would have induced extreme wildfires (53), which would have decimated forests and grasslands, destroying the food supplies of herbivores and producing charcoal, soot, toxic fumes, and ash. The number of ET airbursts or impacts necessary to induce the continent-wide environmental collapse at 12.9 ka is unknown.”

“Did killer comets bring the bling? – January 05, 2009
Nanodiamonds that have been discovered in ancient sediment provide new support for a divisive theory that a giant space rock wiped out humans and animals thousands of years ago.

The ‘Clovis’ culture, which thrived in North America on a diet of mammoth, bison and horse, disappeared suddenly 13,000 years ago. While several theories have been offered to explain this perplexing vanishing act, some two dozen scientists controversially proposed in May 2007 that these people and the beasts they hunted were killed by space rocks that exploded on or above North America, changing the climate. With the discovery of fresh evidence, reported in Science, the debate looks set to continue (press release).

“We’ve discovered nanodiamonds that are not normally produced through average processes on the surface of the Earth,” James Kennett, a geologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and an author on the Science paper, told the BBC. “They indicate there was an extra-terrestrial event on Earth 12,900 years ago.””

Did a comet strike earth 12,900 years ago and wipe out some life forms
and create a massive fireball and hot wind? Did this event melt planet
ice and cause the great flood and destroy Atlantis?

12,900 years ago coincides with reports of the great flood and destruction
of Atlantis.

“Plato in his Laws, Book III, estimates that this flood occurred 10,000 years before his time. Also in Timaeus (22) and in Critias (111-112) he describes the “great deluge of all” happening 9,000 years before the time of Solon, during the 10th millennium BC. In addition, the texts report that “many great deluges have taken place during the nine thousand years” since Athens and Atlantis were preeminent.”

“The map on the right shows how the region would look about 12,000 years ago, or 10,000 BC, when the sea level would have been 125 meters lower than today. The Peloponnese was connected to the mainland and the Corinthian Gulf was not formed. Islands around Attica, such as Aegina, Salamis and Euboea, were part of the mainland. The Cyclades formed a big island known as Aegeis, while Bosporus and Hellespont was not formed yet.”

The biblical quotes above reveal that Noah was promised that the earth would never
again be destroyed by water. However, the Revelations quote that states “scorch
people with fire” resembles too eerily the outcome from the scientific forecasts
for 2012 from NASA scientists. Solar activity is expected to peak in 2012.

Here is another scientific report that may blow prevailing theories about
global warming out of the water.
“Galactic Cosmic Rays May Be Responsible For The Antarctic Ozone Hole

The Antarctic Ozone Hole is said to be caused only by Chlorofluorocarbons
(CFC’s). According to this new study, perhaps not.”

“Here is a new paper of interest just published in Physical Review Letters.”

Correlation between Cosmic Rays and Ozone Depletion

Q.-B. Lu
Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON,
N2L 3G1, Canada

Abstract:

This Letter reports reliable satellite data in the period of 1980–2007
covering two full 11-yr cosmic ray (CR) cycles, clearly showing the
correlation between CRs and ozone depletion, especially the polar ozone
loss (hole) over Antarctica. The results provide strong evidence of the
physical mechanism that the CR driven electron-induced reaction of
halogenated molecules plays the dominant role in causing the ozone hole.
Moreover, this mechanism predicts one of the severest ozone losses in
2008–2009 and probably another large hole around 2019–2020, according to
the 11-yr CR cycle.”

The question remains to be answered. With a depletion of the Ozone layer
over Antartica and anticipated large increases in solar flares in 2012,
what can we expect from this combination?

Ezekiel reports:

“1:4 As I watched, I noticed a windstorm coming from the north – an enormous cloud, with
lightning flashing, such that bright light rimmed it and came from it like glowing amber
from the middle of a fire.

1:5 In the fire were what looked like four living beings. In their appearance they had
human form,”

“1:10 Their faces had this appearance: Each of the four had the face of a man,”

“1:14 The living beings moved backward and forward as quickly as flashes of lightning.”

“1:19 When the living beings moved, the wheels beside them moved; when the living beings
rose up from the ground, the wheels rose up too.”
Ezekiel 1

“3:12 Then a wind lifted me up and I heard a great rumbling sound behind me as the glory
of the Lord rose from its place,

3:13 and the sound of the living beings’ wings brushing against each other, and the sound
of the wheels alongside them, a great rumbling sound.

3:14 A wind lifted me up and carried me away.”
Ezekiel 3

 

Bible prophecy:

“16:8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was permitted to scorch
people with fire.

16:9 Thus people were scorched by the terrible heat, yet they blasphemed the name of God,
who has ruling authority over these plagues, and they would not repent and give him glory.”
Revelation 16

 

“24:37 For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be.

24:38 For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and
giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark.

24:39 And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the
same at the coming of the Son of Man.

24:40 Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one left.

24:41 There will be two women grinding grain with a mill; one will be taken and one left.”
Matthew 24
“13:26 Then everyone will see the Son of Man arriving in the clouds with great power and
glory.

13:27 Then he will send angels and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from
the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.”

I knew that the movie “Knowing” starring Nicholas Cage was coming soon. I had seen the
previews. However I expected the usual Hollywood preposterous scenario. Not long after
starting this blog and renewing my investigations into December 21, 2012, the Mayan
Calendar, prophecies and predictions I watched “Knowing” and was surprised how close
to a possible reality it protrayed. It incorporated recent news releases about the
upcoming solar cycle, the possible end of world scenario presented by the Mayan Calendar
and numerous prophecies and predictions as well as an alien rescue that could be
perceived as the “rapture.” Not too far into watching the movie I began wondering if
we are being prepared for the worst.

Here are some exerpts from a review by Roger Ebert:
“A roll of whose dice?
By Roger Ebert on March 18, 2009

Is the universe deterministic, or random? Not the first question you’d expect to hear in a thriller, even a great one. But to hear this question posed soon after the opening sequence of “Knowing” gave me a particular thrill. Nicolas Cage plays Koestler, a professor of astrophysics at MIT, and as he toys with a model of the solar system, he asks that question of his students. Deterministic means that if you have a complete understanding of the laws of physics, you can predict with certainty everything that will happen after (for example) the universe is created in the Big Bang. Random means you can’t predict anything. “What do you think?” a student asks Koestler, who says, “I think…shit just happens.”

He is soon given reason to doubt his confidence. (From this point on, there are spoilers.) “Knowing” begins 50 years ago with a classroom assignment; grade school children are asked to draw pictures of what the world will look like inthe future. Most draw rocket ships. Lucinda covers her page with row after row of deeply-etched numbers. All the pages are buried in a time capsule, and when the future comes around, Lucinda’s sealed envelope ends in the hands of Caleb, Koestler’s young son.
The page seems meaningless, a work of madness. But by chance Koestler notices these numbers in a row: 91120013239. Koestler sees 9/11/2001, and when he googles 9/11 he finds that 2996 people were killed. The numbers were written down in 1959. In a fever, the scientist extracts other numbers and finds the precise dates and fatalities of major catastrophes during the previous five decades.

Koestler and the music of the spheres

How can this be? By now Koestler is in the state of mind that Nicolas Cage evokes so perfectly: Profound, heartsick worry. He turns to his MIT colleague, a cosmologist named Beckman (Ben Mendelsohn). Beckman thinks he must be mad, and warns against the superstition of numerology. But when recent numbers turn out to be correct predictions, and when Koestler realizes that some of the numbers are coordinates of latitude and longitude, it is impossible to dismiss the sheet of paper. It poses a threat to our very understanding of the universe. Shit doesn’t just happen.”

 

“These numbers are not random

But it’s not quite that simple. For one thing, how do you conveniently get an exact count on a death toll via a cablenews flash? It often takes days to find bodies (after an earthquake, for example), and some victims may linger for weeks. And were the numbers dictated by a supernatural power, or by a higher order of natural power? That leads directly to a question at the end of the film.

As you know, there have been appearances all though “Knowing” of mysterious figures standing at a distance. Men in overcoats, alone or in groups of four, regarding the children who can hear them “whispering” in their ears. At theclimax, these figures manifest at the site of the house trailer Lucinda lived in as an adult. At first they seem to behuman, but then they divest themselves of human appearance and become glowing, transparent, figures of energy and nerves. They beckon Caleb and Abby to follow them as they enter a shimmering vessel that seems to vaguely suggest a geodesic dome or elements of the Martian crystal structure in “Watchmen.”

The vessel takes off, and we see that it is joined by other vessels from all over the globe. Then the sunburst takes place, and the special effects are merciless as the firestorm rips across the planet. The two children are deposited by the vessel in a sun-washed wheat field, join hands, and run toward the only tree on the horizon. A new Adam and Eve in a new Garden of Paradise?”
“My guess is that many audience members will experience the film as an affirmation of religious belief. Few will bother to think through the implications, which seem to make religion irrelevant–except as a comfort to those like Koestler’s clergyman father.”

Watching the movie “Knowing,” reading this review by Roger Ebert, reflecting on
recent NASA reports and blending this with all the other facts, prophecies and
predictions, leaves one with the obvious conclusion that something is about to
happen, something long expected and foretold.

We have been given the warning.

How will the human race respond?

“Drosnin, a journalist, popularised the Torah Codes with his best-selling book:

The Bible Code.”

 “He performed his own analysis of the Bible based on the work of the scientists who developed the code, Eliyahu Rips, Doron Witzum, and Yoav Rosenberg. His book, he says, is an investigative report on the facts. And these facts are that there is a code in the Bible, and that in a few instances it has foretold events that then happened exactly as predicted, but also that there is no way to know if the code can predict the distant future. He has proven these facts by testing them on his own, and by interviewing the scientists who discovered the code. He became convinced that the code was real when he accurately predicted the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin a year in advance.”

“This is not Drosnin’s only idea of end times. He also predicts a massive earthquake to bring on the Apocalypse. The destruction of the world by earthquake is frequently foretold in the plain text of the Bible. And the last thing encoded in the bible is what sounds like a prophecy of the Apocalypse. “To annihilate, totally destroy, he hurled a violent force, and for everyone the great terror: fire, earthquake.” The code seems to predict a series of “great earthquakes” in the years 2000, 2014, and 2113. The U.S., China, Japan, and Israel all have great “earthquakes” predicted in the near future. But Los Angeles is mathematically the best match, near which is encoded the year 2010.”

“Another possibility for the way the end will play out which is encoded in the bible, is the collision of an asteroid with the earth. A collision is predicted in the year 2006. Crossed with this year are the statements “its path struck their dwelling” and “star like object.” Other years are also predicted however. The year 2010 appears with “comet” “days of horror” “darkness” and “gloom.” And the year 2012 is encoded right below “earth annihilated.” “
