EARTH CHANGES APPROACHING

[ADDED PARAGRAPHING BY Q--OTHERWISE, NO CHANGES]

    Note: We have received numerous requests for copies of Timothy's latest book, "Earth Changes Approaching". Although this book has not yet been printed, note that as soon as it is printed we plan on sending a free copy to all those who have given to this ministry in 2002. We are currently waiting for the materialization of printing-costs ($2,000 needed for first batch of books).   

  EXCERPT FROM BOOK   

Historically, the largest earthquake to ever be recorded (since the invention of the seismograph in the 1850's) was a 9.5 earthquake in Chile, which took place on May 22, 1960. This South American quake was so powerful that it sent tsunami rippling across the entire Pacific. Over 2,000 people died in the earthquake and tsunami which followed. Fifteen hours after the quake rocked Chile, the tidal wave hit Hilo, Hawaii (61 deaths) ~ 7 hours later, the tsunami reached Japan (over 200 deaths). There were also casualties reported in the Philippines, New Zealand, Samoa, Indonesia, and across the entire Pacific Rim.   

The tidal waves triggered by the Chilean earthquake were relatively small, ranging from 10 to 60 feet high, yet had a devastating impact on the half the globe. One of the greatest threats from tsunami comes not from earthquakes themselves, but from underwater landslides which are triggered by the quakes. For example, the largest tsunami ever recorded took place on July 9, 1958 in Lituya Bay, Alaska. The tsunami was recorded as being 1,720 feet high (530 meters), yet the earthquake which triggered it was only 8.3 on the Richter Scale.    

    Although this Alaskan tidal wave was enormous, the underwater area involved in the landslide was relatively small, and the tsunami only affected Lituya Bay, which in 1958 was only inhabited by moose, bears, and a few fisherman and hunters. Thus, the loss of life was minimal. But this event was a turning point for the way scientists viewed the threat from undersea landslides.    

  After 1958, a study of underwater chasms and valleys became a priority of seismologist, so that vulnerable areas could be mapped and identified. One of the greatest landslide threats discovered lies off the coast of Oregon, near the Cascadia Subduction Zone. This undersea chasm is so expansive that it makes the Grand Canyon look like a gopher hole. A major earthquake occurs along the Cascadia Subduction Zone approximately every 300 years, and the area is now overdue for a major event (the last one occurred exactly 302 years ago in 1700 AD, which triggered tsunami that wiped out several Indian tribes in Oregon).   

    Alaska has had its share of major earthquakes. Six years after the 8.3 Lituya Bay earthquake, another mammoth earthquake took place in Alaska on March 27, 1964. The Prince William Sound Earthquake measured 9.2 on the Ricther Scale, and is the 2nd largest earthquake ever recorded. The tsunami from this quake, although small compared to Lituya Bay, killed over 110 people from Alaska to Crescent City, California.   

    Only four earthquakes have been recorded in history as exceeding 9.0 on the Ricther Scale ~ 2 of these quakes were located in Alaska. On March 9, 1957, the third largest earthquake recorded in history took place in the Andreanof Islands, Alaska. This 9.1 earthquake was a turning point in the study of volcanoes, proving that major earthquakes can indeed awaken volcanoes that have been sleeping for generations.    

    At exactly 2:22 in the afternoon, as the 9.1 earthquake sent tidal waves crashing across the Andreanof Islands, Mount Vsevidof violently erupted on Umnak Island (a volcano had been dormant for over 200 years). The connection between major earthquakes and volcanic eruptions would be further established 3 years later in 1960, when a chain of dormant volcanoes violently erupted in Chile during the unprecedented 9.5 earthquake.   

  Although all of the above earthquakes were large, none can compare to the New Madrid, Missouri quakes, which occurred during the winter of 1811 - 1812. This series of quakes lasted for 5 months, and took place long before the seismograph was invented. If you compare this series of quakes to the 9.5 Chilean quake (which lasted for 3 weeks), the New Madrid earthquake would have to have been comparatively much larger (lasting 5 months).   

  The magnitude of the New Madrid earthquakes had to be truly enormous. In 1964, the Prince Williams Sound earthquake (9.2) could only be felt as far away as Seattle, Washington. But 18 of the New Madrid earthquakes rang church bells as far away as Boston, Massachusettes, and could be felt across the entire eastern half of the United States.    

   Over 150,000 acres of forest were destroyed, new lakes were formed, and tsunami crashed along the shores of the Mississippi River, leaving a graveyard of destroyed boats and debris. Witnesses reported that the entire river appeared to be flowing backwards during 5 of the largest quakes. Although there were roughly 2,000 quakes during a 5-month period, the five BIG quakes occurred between December 16, 1811, and February 7, 1812. The first 2 of the 5 big quakes were epicentered in Arkansas, both occurring on the same day (December 16th).    

   The third earthquake was epincentered in New Madrid, Missouri (January 23, 1812). The fourth and fifth quakes occurred in New Madrid on February 7, and were the largest of the series. It was these two quakes that destroyed the city of New Madrid, and toppled houses as far away as St. Louis. (Note: Although some sources report that there were three large quakes, technically there were 5 mega-quakes [2 on 12/16/11, 1 on 1/23/12, and another 2 on 2/7/12].    

   The USGS, although conservatively estimating the New Madrid quakes to be in the 8-point range, have recently published a report indicating that 5 of the earthquakes had to be at least 2 to 3 times large than the Prince Edward Sound earthquake, which measured 9.2 on the Richter Scale.   

   On November 20, 2001, I was given a detailed prophetic vision of another series of quakes which will soon shake the United States Midwest. The coming quakes will exceed the magnitudes of the previous New Madrid quakes of 1811 - 1812, and will result in significant earth changes along several areas of the Central United States.    

   In Arkansas and Missouri, the earth changes that began 191 years ago during the New Madrid quakes will reach maturation. Along the New Madrid fault line and several other fault lines which wind there way up to the Great Lakes, there will be a sudden drop of elevation.    

   The size of the Great Lakes will decrease, as water drains into the newly formed rift and cascades southward into the Gulf of Mexico. Within less than a day, a new gulf will appear in the United States. North America will be literally divided in half from east to west. The majority of changes will take place within 24 hours, but aftershocks from the quake will continue to rattle the region for 7 months.    

   The force of the water cascading from north to south during the birthing of the initial rift will lay the foundations for diverse topography and landscapes along the newly birthed shoreline.    Inland Tsunami And Displacements Of Rivers And Lakes   

   Prior to 1811, tsunami were believed to be only an ocean phenomen. But on December 16, 1811, a new precedent was set for tidal waves. When an earthquake approaches or exceeds 9.0 on the Richter Scale, earth changes are imminent. These changes can be anywhere from minor to catastrophic, depending upon the geology and terrain of the earth.    

    If a body of water happens to be near the epicenter, one of two things can happen: 1) The quake will generate tsunami, or 2) The body of water will be displaced, and shift to another location. During the New Madrid quakes of 1811 - 1812, fortunately the course of the entire Mississippii river did not change, but tsunami along the river destroyed many boats docked along the shore, and overwhelmed many smaller vessels that were further out in the river. As fissures opened and closed below the surface, the agitated water gave the illusion that the river was flowing backwards.   

    During major earthquakes, the elevation of land rises and falls. The greatest earth changes occur not when the land is thrown upwards, but when it collapses. In Alaska, during the Prince Edward Sound earthquake, many fertile valleys and farmlands became transformed into water-filled marshes overnight, as underground water reserves filled large portions of land that collapsed. In New Madrid, the shaking was so intense that land waves could be seen rippling across the face of the earth. The elevation of the earth rose and fell over an area of 78,000 - 129,000 square kilometers, extending from Cairo, Illinois, to Memphis, Tennessee, and from Crowleys Ridge, Arkansas, to Chickasaw Bluffs, Tennessee. Many new lakes were formed, including Lake St. Francis in eastern Arkansas, which is 64 kilometers long by 1 kilometer wide.   

    The future map of the Gulf of the North America, which will extend from the Great Lakes in the north, to the Gulf of Mexico in the south, is not without precedent in earth history. The Gulf of California, which runs along the San Andreas Fault, was once connected to Mexico. But at one point the region violently collapsed into an eternal blue abyss, known today by Mexico as the Sea of Cortez.    

    The northern end of the Gulf of California is very shallow (no place greater than 600 feet deep), then gradually merges into the marshlands of the delta (similar to the marshes created overnight by the Alaskan earthquake of 1964).    

    The future Gulf of North America will have at least 3 to 4 times the mass of the Gulf of California. The tsunami triggered from the drainage of the Great Lakes will move southward at a catastrophic rate, engulfing entire cities in its path as it winds its way south into the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.    

    To the northeast of the Great Lakes in Canada, newly formed channels will connect the Gulf to the Atlantic Ocean. Although this inland tsunami will indeed be large, it will be small compared to the tidal waves generated by the earth changes throughout the Pacific Ring of Fire.

    I WOULD ADD, PROPHETIC TYPES EVEN OF SHAMMAN, NEW AGE ETC. TYPES HAVE "SEEN" SIMILAR EARTH CHANGES OCCRING IN OUR TIME FRAME ALONG THE CENTRAL U.S. It almost seems as though God has tried every channel to warn us.

I have been waiting for this one but hoped it would be next year or later. Here it is I'm not even home from Taiwan yet. It appears that it may "finally" be buckle-seat-belts time. I pray not. But the signs are getting harder to ignore at 7.7 and 7.5 and those very close together as though God were emphasizing something--perhaps the warning Snodgrass speaks of?

Curious, Why would God, as an omniscient and all knowing being, use a communication method as crude as earthquakes to send messages?

DON & MARTHA
7.5 AND 7.7 OFF THE COAST OF FIJI

Now, I know you did not mean that Don and Martha came in at 7.5 and 7.7 respectively.

Were there earthquakes off the coast of Fiji, was there a lot of damage, and have you heard from your relatives?

I've gone to the USGS SITE and the 7.7 was at the deepest level and furthest from Suva, the capital of Fiji. the 7.5 was a lot closer to the surface and a lot closer to Suva.

I have not heard at all from my relatives. I have emails in to them. . . several days ago and today after getting the post on the quakes from USGS and the net.

Thanks for your prayers and concern.

Ask God why he would use a sledge hammer crude thing like a quake--

Evidently, it's because we have refused to listen to His Still Small Voice and accuse those who do their best at listening to His still small voice to be tin foil hat fanatics.

But ask Him. I don't pretend to read His mind on the whys of such things.

Evidently you think the Apostle Paul was giving bad advice when he instructed all believers to pray to interpret tongues and to prophecy. . . . as well as Joel when he predicted that many would do such in our era.

NEVETHELESS, I APPRECIATE THE PRAYERS LOTS.

If this guy is right

Ah, now, there's the rub isn't it?

If LBJ was right, Medicare would only be costing us about $3 billion per year right now.

If Al Gore were right all the coastal areas of Florida would be under water right now.

If Saddam Hussein were right, he'd be ruler of Kuwait (and Saudi Arabia) with a quarter-million bones of dead American soldiers laying in the sand.

If J.P. Morgan Co. were right, the Dow would be at 16,000 right now.

That predicting the future stuff is pretty tricky.

WE SHALL CERTAINLY SEE ON THIS ONE.

If my memory is right, there's supposed to be some correlation between the time distance between the Fiji quake some months ago and this set now as to when the New Madrid etc. type stuff would follow. I wonder if the time distance between the two now says anything we should be listening to.

We shall see how many are how amused 12 months from now.

Wasn't accusing you of reading His mind. Just noting that I didn't have 100% of His innermost thoughts on it as I didn't read His mind per se myself. Was responding to your implication that I might be able to answer such a mind-reading-of-God sort of question.

God seemed in places in the Bible to speak quite profoundly through an earthquake. . . such as at the Crucifixion.

I assume He does what He wants to do whether you or I approve or not.

FOR SURE IT'S TRICKY TO PREDICT THE FUTURE.

But this guy seems to have risen above the mass somewhat.

I had a sense in my spirit that there was something above average about him when he made his prediction months ago about at least one bigger quake coming for Fiji. . . and I think he predicted that within a year or less. Given that he was right on that score. . . it is not tooooo far fetched to wonder if he'll be right about his other impressions of the future.

I am hoping to own beachfront property on the Gulf of America as I live in Topeka, Kansas. Of couse we were under an ocean here once upon a time according to the fossil record.

A geologist friend of mine says you cannot compare West coast quakes to a New Madrid quake. On the West coast, the Earth is composed of relatively soft layers with lots of sand that absorbe shock. The Midwest has hard layers of limestome running though it. He made the analogy of whipping a tablecloth on a table loaded with stuff. He said the shockwaves of a much smaller quake could do much more damage over a much larger area from a New Madrid quake. I have family in St. Charles. Should I send them some tinfoil?
