Signs of the Times

Volcanoes

PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:
Volcanoes and earthquakes are interrelated. Jesus listed earthquakes as one of the major "signs of the times" leading to the End Times. Earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanoes seem to be getting larger and more frequent lately.
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains. - Matthew 24:7-8 (NIV)

NASA wants to prevent the Yellowstone super volcano from destroying the US

Sept. 25, 2017 -
NASA believes the Yellowstone super volcano is a greater threat to life on Earth than any asteroid. So itís come up with a plan to defuse its explosive potential.

The Jet Propulsion Labs team calculated that the molten core would need to be cooled some 35 per cent. They propose drillling deep vents on the sides of the super volcano to let out hot water and steam, and possibly help pay for the cost by generating electricity.
