    Oh for yeshuas sake!

    The entire western side of South America is the collision zone of the Nazca and South American tectonic plates. The movement of those two plates, which has been going on for millions of years, (not material strength = material failure = earthquake, and god has nothing to do with it.

    Tho yeshua was reportedly a tekton, he warn't the son of god.

    I can't wait for the religious doomsayers to be called back to their fantasy afterlife and leave the rest of us alone.

      The Bible warns of great atmospheric and weather upheaval during the coming "Apocalypse" ... both global cooling and global warming lie ahead for mankind (men and women) ... all those who are left on Earth after the coming "Rapture" ...

      There will be a great plague of snow and hail coming upon the Earth ...

      "Have you entered the treasury of snow,

      Or have you seen the treasury of hail,

      Which I (God) have reserved for the time of trouble,

      For the Day of battle and war?" (the coming "Apocalypse")

      (Job 38:22-23)

      "And great hail from heaven fell upon men, ("Mankind".. men and women)

      each hailstone about the weight of a talent.

      (A "talent" = 85 – 114 pounds!!)

      Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail,

      since that plague was exceedingly great."

      (Revelation 16:21)

      And, there will be a great heat from the Sun which will scorch the people on Earth ...

      The people left on Earth will continue to hate and curse God.

      "Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the Sun,

      and power was given to him to scorch men with fire.

      And men (mankind ... men and women)

      were scorched with great heat,

      and they blasphemed the Name of God

      who has power over these plagues;

      and they did not repent and give Him glory."

      (Revelation 16:8-9)

    Its great to see the Word being witnessed here. Good job brother. Clearly we are facing the end days. Christ says he wont return untill everyone on this planet has had the opportunity to accept and know Him . it may be minor posting scripture here but like you said... the communication ability is not like it has ever been before and continues to grow. I'm sorry for your persecution here... dont let their deceived ignorant minds bring you down. just continue to love them 🙂 good day all John 3.16

    The GODS are presently disturbing the airways from reaching satellites and antennas. They do not wish you to see this miracle. Once the GODS have finished you will be able to see the coverage of what they have done.

    It is at this point that I will post random scripture and connect it to the end days.

    Ezekiel 23:20 "There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses."
