1884 A Forewarning Of The Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12)

January 20, 2010

New York City isn’t immune to earthquakes; a couple of small tremors measuring about 2.5 on the Richter scale even struck back in 2001 and 2002.

But on August 10, 1884, a more powerful earthquake hit. Estimated from 4.9 to 5.5 in magnitude, the tremor made houses shake, chimneys fall, and residents wonder what the heck was going on, according to a New York Times article two days later.

The quake was subsequently thought to have been centered off Far Rockaway or Coney Island.

It wasn’t the first moderate quake, and it won’t be the last. In a 2008 Columbia University study, seismologists reported that the city is crisscrossed with several fault lines, one along 125th Street. 

With that in mind, New Yorkers should expect a 5.0 or higher earthquake centered here every 100 years, the seismologists say.

Translation: We’re about 30 years overdue. Lucky for us the city adopted earthquake-resistant building codes in 1995.1884 A Forewarning Of The Sixth Seal (Revelation 6:12)

Russia and China Nuclear Horns are Challenging Babylon the Great

Russia and China Challenging America for Space Supremacy

America’s predominance is slowly eroding away.

By Abraham Blondeau • October 2

Space could be the decisive theater of conflict in the next world war. Modern militaries, especially the major powers, are reliant upon satellite networks for communications, missile tracking and defense, integrated command and control and targeting systems. These systems enable nations to fight wars with high-tech armaments and nuclear weapons. Whoever controls space, or can destroy their adversaries’ satellite networks, gains a momentous advantage.

For decades, the United States has had the leading edge in space, and still does. But Russia and China are slowly making gains. It is becoming increasingly apparent that America’s technological edge is being undermined by weak leadership.

“China is now ‘on track’ to outpace the United States as the leading space power by 2045, according to the latest version of the space industrial base workshop report spearheaded in part by the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Unit,” reported Breaking Defense. “A reason for this pessimistic viewpoint is a collective ‘lack of urgency’ across the U.S. government and industry, as well as a bureaucratic environment ‘that is constructively delaying U.S. commercial progress through regulatory burden,’ states the report ‘State of the Space Industrial Base: Winning the New Space Race for Sustainability, Prosperity and the Planet.’”

The report was authored by 350 industry representatives and government officials. The main concern was that America’s industrial base for space technologies was not keeping pace with rivals, particularly China. Breaking Defense continued: “One telling indicator of China’s rapid space advancement is the finding by a 2022 report by rand’s Project Air Force that China is overtaking the U.S. in the number of military-related patents, the workshop report notes.”

The space industry is being hampered by lack of government investment, impacts from high inflation and supply-chain disruptions, and overregulation from bureaucratic agencies. The report states: “The agile engineering ecosystem that has become the hallmark of the modern space era is at risk due to some U.S. policy and procurement practices within the bureaucracy that are not aligned with, or work counter to, national space strategy.” Space technology needs a high amount of capital and time to develop. The more the U.S. government pivots to social spending, and the worse the economic downturn becomes, the greater the long-term effects on the space race.

The development of hypersonic missiles has placed U.S. missile-detection systems at a disadvantage. Currently the U.S. systems built by Lockheed Martin rely on more expensive, high-orbit satellites to warn and track missiles. The high-orbit satellites struggle to track hypersonic missiles, which make it difficult for combat systems to counter attacks. This gap won’t be fully addressed until 2045 when the U.S. pivots to low- and middle-orbit satellites. The current system relies on five or six high-orbit satellites that are increasingly vulnerable to Russian and Chinese attacks.

“U.S. Space Force’s General David Thompson, the service’s second in command, said last week that Russia and China are launching ‘reversible attacks,’ such as electronic warfare jamming, temporarily blinding optics with lasers, and cyberattacks, on U.S. satellites ‘every single day’,” wrote the Drive. “He also disclosed that a small Russian satellite used to conduct an on-orbit antisatellite weapon test back in 2019 had first gotten so close to an American one that there were concerns an actual attack was imminent.”

Reversible attacks involve jamming or blocking communications and optics and do not permanently disable satellites. Nonreversible attacks are kinetic attacks with ballistic missiles, nuclear missiles or other projectiles. The Drive continued: “The systems that Russia and China are known to be developing or have already fielded include destructive and nondestructive types that are deployed from Earth, such as ground-based jammers, lasers or interceptors, as well as small ‘killer satellites’ positioned in orbit. A killer satellite able to maneuver close to its target could use various means to try to disable, damage or even destroy it, such as jammers, directed energy weapons, robotic arms, chemical sprays and small projectiles. It could even deliberately smash into the other satellite in a kinetic attack.”

In 2019 and 2020, Russian satellites fired small projectiles so close to U.S. satellites that the military was unsure if it was a test or an actual attack. For years, Russia has been successfully testing its PL-19 Nudol ballistic missile system to knock out enemy satellites. The Drive reported: “Other Russian weapons in development are thought to also have antisatellite capabilities. These include the S-500 antiballistic missile and air defense system and more shadowy weapons like the maneuvering orbital ‘satlet’—likely capable of near observation, disruption and possibly even manipulation of other satellites—launched under the guise of Kosmos 2499. Russia is also experimenting with airborne lasers designed to blind or even kill enemy satellites.”

America is not the only nation responding to Russian and Chinese aggression in space. Europe is also taking steps to consolidate its space security by partnering with the United States. However, Europe itself is a major force in space technology and capabilities. “Europe is a significant space power: Its space sector had a turnover of €74 billion [us$72 billion] in 2019, which represents between 15 and 20 percent of the world market, with 48,000 employees working directly in this sector,” wrote Josep Borrell, vice president of the European Commission. “The EU is increasingly involved, with the best-known EU success stories: Galileofor positioning, navigation and timing and Copernicus, the largest Earth observation system.” The EU plans to create a new satellite infrastructure that will provide secure communications and Internet access, to fulfill government and defense needs. Germany has also taken significant steps to take a leadership role in nato’s space command.

America’s dominance in space is slowly eroding away. Bible prophecy warns that America will soon face a dire situation: “They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle …” (Ezekiel 7:14). This indicates that a cyberattack, or a nullification of America’s space capabilities, will completely destroy America’s ability to respond to a military attack.

The military buildup in space is leading to violence here on Earth. To learn more about these prophecies and where they are leading, read Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry’s article “America’s Achilles’ Heel—and Germany.”

The Islamic Movement Hamas organized a mass rally on Saturday under the title “Al-Aqsa is in Danger”, to emphasize the centrality of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

During the rally, Hamas representatives denounced the escalation of Israeli aggressions and violations of the sanctity of the holy mosque.

The rally, which attracted thousands of Palestinians from across the besieged Gaza Strip, brought together a large number of Palestinian political leaders and dignitaries, including Hamas’s leader in the Gaza Strip Yahya Sinwar – who appeared in public for the first time since the latest Israeli war on Gaza last August – Mahmoud Zahar, and others. 

Rawhi Mushtaha, a member of the Hamas political bureau, warned that Israeli violations of Al-Aqsa could lead to a series of explosions that would change the shape of the region.

Mushtaha said that Gaza was conveying a simple and clear message to Arab and Muslim leaders, as well as to all world leaders.

He warned against any attempt at dividing Al-Aqsa Mosque, pointing out that Hamas will not tolerate Israel’s banning of Muslim worshippers, arrest of young people, and continued excavations that put the mosque in danger. 

Mushtaha also expressed his solidarity with Al-Qassam Brigades in Jenin and Nablus, paying his tribute to those who were killed and wounded by recent Israeli violence targeting the northern West Bank.

Babylon the Great Would Destroy the Russian Horn: Revelation 16

US would destroy Russia’s entire army if Putin use nukes in Ukraine, says former CIA director

David Petraeus called it a ‘hypothetical’ response, adding he did not speak with national security advisor about possible US response

‘This is the will of the people’: Putin signs annexation of Ukraine’s regions to Russia

The US and its allies would eradicate Russia’s military troops in Ukraine and sink its Black Sea fleet if Vladimir Putin uses nuclear weapons, said former CIA director David Petraeus.

“Just to give you a hypothetical, we would respond by leading a Nato – a collective – effort that would take out every Russian conventional force that we can see and identify on the battlefield in Ukraine and also in Crimea and every ship in the Black Sea,” said Mr Petraeus speaking to ABC News on Sunday.

The retired four-star general, however, clarified that he has not spoken to US national security advisor Jake Sullivan about the possible US response.

Tensions are on the rise since Mr Putin warned that the country would not hesitate to use “various weapons of destruction” with former president Dmitry Medvedev giving a more direct threat about Russia’s right to use nuclear weapons to defend its territories.

On being questioned if Russia’s use of nuclear weapons would be construed as an attack on Nato members, Mr Petraeus said that one can “make that case”.

“The other case is that this is so horrific that there has to be a response, so cannot go unanswered,” he said, adding that Nato allies should not respond by deploying their own nuclear weapons. “But it does not expand. It is not nuclear for nuclear. You don’t get into a nuclear escalation here but you have to show that this cannot be accepted in any way.”

He, however, said that Russia is “losing” in Ukraine and “the battlefield reality” that Mr Putin faces is “irreversible”. The comments came as Moscow withdrew troops from Lyman, a key city in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, days after it announced annexing four areas of the war-torn country through a referendum that Ukraine slammed as a “propaganda show”.

The retired general lauded Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky for having mobilised forces “better than Russia” as he added that the country “recruited… trained, equipped, organised and employed forces incomparably better than Russia has”.about:blank

“And the reality facing Russia now is that Ukraine—a country a third the size of Russia— has a bigger, much more effective army on the ground,” he said. “So he faces a situation that I think again is irreversible. There’s no amount of shambolic mobilization, which is the only way to describe it, no amount of annexation, no amount of even veiled nuclear threats, can actually get him out of this particular situation.”

“He announced the annexation, he’s already lost a really critical element in that critical city that would have been a very key supply hub had they been able to go farther and that’s just going to continue. He’s going to continue to lose on the battlefield.”

    Last month the Russian president passed partial mobilisation order in the country, prompting over 260,000 locals to flee to nearby states. The orders also sparked heated protests in the country with several civilians chanting “no to war”, in the country as videos of violent confrontations between the demonstrators and police.

    Former Iraqi FM says a government without the Antichrist will ‘not enjoy stability’

    Former Iraqi FM says a government without Sadr will ‘not enjoy stability

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Any Iraqi government formed without the participation of powerful Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr will be unstable, the former foreign minister of Iraq told Rudaw on Thursday, while describing the withdrawal of the Sadrist Movement from the legislative body as a “strategic mistake.”

    Iraq’s political scene has witnessed a series of developments over the past week which came after months of inactivity. The government formation process took a step forward after the pro-Iran Coordination Framework, the ruling Kurdish parties, and the Sunni blocs formed Running the State Coalition.

    The coalition seeks to form Iraq’s next cabinet and put an end to the prolonged political deadlock that has plagued the country over the past year. If successful, the cabinet would become Iraq’s first government without the participation of the Sadrists, the kingmaker of three out of Iraq’s five parliamentary elections since 2005.

    “A delegation of the main parties were supposed to visit Muqtada al-Sadr to make another attempt at convincing him to approve the government, to not stand against it, or to be a part of it, because any government without him [Sadr], take it from me, will not enjoy any stability, and I stand by that opinion,” Hoshyar Zebari, Iraq’s former foreign minister and senior politburo member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), told Rudaw’s Diyar Kurda on Thursday in Washington.

    The Sadrist Movement formed a tripartite alliance with the KDP and the Sunni Sovereignty Alliance following the early elections of October 2021, seeking to form a national majority government. The alliance was disbanded once the Sadrist MPs resigned from their positions in June.

    “We believe the decision was a strategic mistake. They should not have walked out. They have great popular power, and they could have protected that power in the parliament,” said Zebari, adding that the KDP does not regret its previous alliance with the Sadrists and the Sunnis.

    Rejecting the Coordination Framework’s attempts at forming a government based on national consensus, Sadrist supporters stormed Baghdad’s Green Zone in late July, staging a sit-in for over a month to protest the candidacy of Mohammed Shia’ al-Sudani for Iraq’s premiership. The protests culminated in deadly clashes between Sadrist supporters and loyalist Iran-backed militias, which killed at least 30 in the span of 24 hours.

    Fresh demonstrations have been held by Sadrist supporters over the past week, attempting to block the Iraqi parliament from holding its first session in three months, and rejecting the Running the State Coalition’s efforts toward forming a government without Sadr.

    The former foreign minister stressed that the government which the new coalition is attempting to form will not reign for long, but rather its only purpose will be to make preparations for early elections and approve of a 2023 budget, or at least a budget for the snap vote.

    Disagreements within the Kurdish camp are another factor in halting the political process in Iraq, as the KDP and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) have been unable to agree on a single candidate for Iraq’s presidency, a position which the latter has held since 2005.

    Zebari stated that the two parties have not been able to reach an agreement on a candidate as of yet and that Reber Ahmed remains the KDP’s sole candidate.

    “The post is for the Kurdish component. It is not owned by the PUK, the KDP, or the New Generation Movement…. if it were according to the results of the elections, the KDP is the number one [Kurdish] party,” Zebari added.

    The inability to agree on a single candidate for Iraq’s next president, suggests the possibility of repeating the 2018 scenario where the KDP and the PUK fielded different candidates and the position was settled in a vote in the parliament, in which the PUK’s Barham Salih emerged victorious over the KDP’s Fuad Hussein.

    ‘Irregular presence’: Putin sends bombers to nuclear weapons base as fears of WW3 rise

    Russian Duma member says Russia is ‘not insane’

    Vladimir Putin has sent a fleet of bombers to a military base housing a large supply of nuclear weapons, sparking fears of World War 3. The Russian President has upped the stakes in his war in Ukraine, after illegally annexing four new provinces. During a carefully choreographed ceremony in Moscow, Putin announced on Friday that the regions of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia would now be formally considered part of Russia.

    He emphasised that the Kremlin would “use all means” at its disposal to protect the newly incorporated territories.

    Analysts interpreted the phrase as yet another threat by Putin to deploy his nuclear arsenal, if the West continues to support Kyiv’s army.

    Newly released satellite images appear to show that the Russian President may be prepared to make good on his threats.

    Israeli intelligence firm ImageSat International (ISI) said they had detected an “irregular presence” of Russian TU-160 and TU-95 strategic bombers at the Olenya Airbase near Finland.

    Satellite photos taken by the company revealed the presence of four TU-160s at the base on August 21 and three TU-95s on September 25th.

    The military base is located on the Kola Peninsula near Murmansk and houses a number of tactical and strategic nuclear weapons, as well as Russia’s Northern Fleet.


    Putin’s chilling ‘military doctrine’ outlines exactly when he would attack NATO

    The decision-making processes in the Kremlin and the Russian military are usually shrouded in secrecy.

    However, the Russian military doctrine provides some indication as to how the country’s forces could act in conflict scenarios.

    The Israeli analysts believe the bombers most likely came from the Engels air base, which is the home of the 121st Heavy Bomber Aviation Regiment.

    They said: “Through ongoing Patterns-of-Life, the system indicates that Engels air base is the possible departure point of the strategic bombers detected in Olenya.”

    The TU-160s one TU-95s are capable of carrying cruise missiles and strategic nuclear weapons.

    They have been active in the Ukrainian war since Putin ordered his troops to invade the country on February 24th.

    It comes as anecdotal evidence mounts that Russia is preparing its troops for a possible nuclear war.

    Reports have emerged of Russian soldiers being issued with radioactive suits and anti-radiation pills in the provinces of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia.


    A war analyst on social media with the address @dl5577 wrote: “On September 26, information was received from several unrelated sources in different army units located in the Kherson region and in the occupied part of Zaporizhzhia, that troops began to be issued with radioactive protection suits.

    “They were also given iodine and other drugs designed to protect against radiation.”

    The same source also posted a screenshot of a purchase order from Moscow regional authorities for potassium iodine tablets.

    They wrote: “A position of potassium iodide for the amount of almost 5 million rubles (£74,490) appeared in the state procurements of Moscow.”

    Ukraine’s army confirmed on Saturday that it had encircled the strategically important city of Lyman.

    Around 5,000 Russian soldiers are believed to be stationed in the city.

    Hamas supporters rally over Israeli raids outside the Temple Walls: Revelation 11

    Hamas supporters rally over Israeli raids on Al-Aqsa Mosque_china.org.cn

    GAZA, Oct. 1 (Xinhua) — Hundreds of Palestinians rallied in Gaza City on Saturday to protest against Israeli raids on the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

    The rally was organized by the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) at Palestine Stadium in northwestern Gaza city under the title “Al-Aqsa Mosque is in danger.” The protesters include Hamas leaders and supporters as well as representatives of Palestinian factions.

    Protesters chanted anti-Israel slogans and slogans in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. They waved Palestinian flags and Hamas green flags, as well as pictures and models of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

    Yahya Sinwar, Hamas’ top leader in the Gaza Strip who participated the rally, warned that the current Israeli practices at the mosque in Jerusalem “would blow up the situation and lead to an unexpected tension.”

    “The Palestinians in Gaza gathered to deliver a message that the occupation of Al-Aqsa, Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Palestine in general, would lead to an explosion that no one will be able to control,” Rawhi Mushtaha, a member of Hamas political bureau, told the rally.

    The rally came less than a week after the Israeli police reportedly broke into the holy site on Sept. 26 in the Old City of Jerusalem to remove Muslim worshippers and provide a safe ground for ultranationalist Jews marking the Jewish New Year (from Sept. 25 to 27 this year). Enditem
