Signs of the Times


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)

Supervolcano in Yellowstone even bigger than we thought

Dec. 13, 2013 - A new study of Yellowstone indicates that the supervolcano is about 2.5 times bigger than it was thought to be.
A team found the cavern stretches for more than 90km (55 miles) and is 30km wide (20 miles)...In some parts it's up to 15km (9 miles) deep and it's filled with molten rock.
The good news is that they do not think it will erupt in the near future.

Prophetic Significance of Volcanoes

Seven Volcanoes in Six Countries Erupt within Hours - But no Sign of Doomsday

Dec. 8, 2013 -
The volcanoes were Indonesia's Mount Sinabung and Mount Merapi, Italy's Mount Etna, the Colima volcano in Mexico, Guatemala's Fire Mountain and Vanuatu's Yasur volcano, while an undersea volcano off the Japanese coast formed a new island.
However, Volcanologist Rebecca Williams, of the University of Hull, told IBTimes UK that this is perfectly normal. She said there can be an average of 10-20 volcanoes erupting every day. In her opinion it is just coincidence that those seven events all happened within an hour or so.
