The Quake That Will Rock The Nation

This is an urgent matter. The US is in for a major earthquake the likes of which have never been felt anywhere around the world before.

Where is this nation headed? Are we next on the list to experience a massive earthquake that will see the death of thousands and displace millions from their homes? When? Where? How? These are questions that I wish I could give a definite answer to, but nothing in this world is definite. At this point in time I can only speculate the details of this massive event.

Where in the US will this happen? Have you heard of the New Madrid Seismic Zone? You can read about what it is, as well as where it is located, by clicking on the link below:http://www.eas.slu.edu/Earthquake_Center/SEISMICITY/NewMadridGeneral.html

This is a highly active area that is overdue for some action. This is a very serious matter. So much so that FEMA, Canada, the Army, the CIA, and other cooperating governmental agencies will perform a rare training event on May 21-25, 2011, at Fort Leavenworth’s Lewis and Clark Center. The weeklong event, known as the National Level Exercise (NLE), is designed to encourage participants to confront the challenges and uncertainties of joint, interagency and multinational operations, and to prepare and coordinate a multiple-jurisdictional integrated response to a national catastrophic event.

The movies, media, and other forms of entertainment have a way of letting us know what will happen before these events actually take place. How do they know? Well, believe me when I tell you that this is a whole different area of study that I do not wish to get into right now for the sake of the importance of getting this information out as fast as I can. Let me just say though, that if you Youtube “Oil Storm”, you can watch a movie that “conveniently” came out two weeks prior to hurricane Katrina back in 2006, yet plays out the scenario of events that happened exactly as portrayed immediately following the hurricane. How can a movie predict down to the minute detail the global effects of this event? Coincidence? Only if you ignore the odds of something like that actually happening the EXACT same way, in the EXACT same order, in the EXACT same state as that of the movie. But…let’s get to why I brought this point up.

The weather channel released a documentary for the people living in the “hot-zone” that depicts the possibilities of an earthquake happening in that area. I did not see the show itself, but you probably can Youtube it. But here is the link for the trailer that was aired:

…and here is another warning from the Weather Channel

Not “IF”, but “WHEN” this earthquake hits, it has been predicted that this event will not only change people’s lives, but will be the first of many catastrophic events that will change the nation’s land mass, and shape in addition to effecting the whole globe. The US Navy released a map of what they predict will be the new look of the US following these possible events. Be aware that earthquakes are usually followed by multiple aftershocks that can be massive earthquakes on their own. Please take a look at the maps below that were released by the US Navy:

 

 

Is there reason to be concerned? You bet there is. FEMA is concerned, so I think we should be too. FEMA is so concerned about this event that they went ahead, as of this year, and ordered millions of pounds of MREs (Meals Ready To Eat) to sustain millions of people for 2 weeks. I have taken the liberty of pasting below, the exact request form submitted by FEMA to the pre-packaged food companies. I have also provided the link, where you can read this and see it with your very own eyes, provided that it has not been moved or deleted by the time you are reading this.

How close are we to this catastrophic event? I cannot put it in better words than the people who live in the “hot-zones”. They are the ones that see day to day manifestations of near eruption. Click here to read what one man says of his neighborhood:

Yes, this catastrophic event is very near. This could possibly come to pass anytime between the rest of this year, and next year. Is there any escape? If you know anyone that lives in the “hot-zone” areas, now is the time to warn them. Relaying this information to them can give them enough time to prepare and avoid massive loss.

More important than physical preparation, is the spiritual preparation. Nowhere in the world is safe if you have not found safety in the Lord Jesus Christ. His word promises to protect us, and give us peace in these tough, uncertain times. If you have not found Christ yet, I invite you to take this opportunity to secure your life in Him. The Bible speaks of a time when this whole world will be judge by God, and the only protection from His Wrath is to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior. Our time here on earth is very short. We spend months preparing where we will stay during our next vacation, what the best hotel is, the best eating spots in that area, even the closest car rental. But do we even give a thought as to where we will be spending eternity when we die? The Bible gives us only two options; Heaven, or Hell? Which one will you choose?
