"Days shortened (Matthew 24:22) & Islands Moved (Rev 6:14) - Don't be downcast, and don't let your love wax cold for the Kingdom is at hand."


When you see these things begin to come to pass then look up your, lift your heads up, [don't be downcast] for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28 KJV
 
We MUST REJOICE
Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended , and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise , and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound , the love of many shall wax cold . 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
 
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand . 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
 
WE MUST NOT MOURN
You don't want to be one of those who mourn the coming of the end when it does come because those are essentially the enemies of God. Matthew 24:30 KJV (all the tribes of the earth mourn - our citizenship lies in heaven)  Revelation 18:11 KJV (merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn)  As are those who just want to hide from the coming disaster. Revelation 6:16 KJV (those of the earth both rich and poor call upon the mountains and rocks to cover and hide them from God's face.  We as children of God (Matthew 5:45 KJV) are to seek his face. 1 Chronicles 16:11 KJV 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV Psalm 24:6 KJV Psalm 105:4 KJV Hosea 5:15 KJV)

    Rev 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together ; and every mountain and island [Japan is an Island and it has moved 13 feet in a day] were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

Many Christians who are waiting for the Lords return have often questioned how the days could ever be shortened.

    Matthew 24:22 KJV And except those days should be shortened , there should no flesh be saved : but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened .
    Mark 13:20 KJV And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved : but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen , he hath shortened the days.

Guess what the process has already begun - the days have actually been shortened:

    "That big earthquake not only shifted Earth's axis, but it also moved Japan itself by about 8 feet. That's something, isn't it?

    Astronomers determined the axis shift by measuring the distance between Earth and the moon. At least that's the only explanation I could come up with.

    As far as the impact on Earth goes, 4 inches really doesn't amount to much in the great scheme of things. It will have the effect of shortening our days by a tiny fraction of a second or by about a second over the next 100 years."

Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. 10 And then shall many be offended , and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise , and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound , the love of many shall wax cold . [continue to let your love light shine] 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
 
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand . 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
 
In the meantime we should take precautions, not because we don't trust in his protection but to recognize that part of his protection was to give us brains and the ability to take care of ourselves when possible.  If we can do something to help ourselves or others then we should (with all prayer and supplication = seeking guidance and giving thanks) there may come a time when we have absolutely no option but rely upon supernatural intervention but that is never a first option.  In fact when Satan tested Jesus in the desert Jesus responded by saying that we should not try to force the Lord to act supernaturally for no good reason.
 
Matthew 4: 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written , He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up , lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
 
So cheer up, be wise prepare, stand firm, and continue to show love.
 
Matthew 6:10 KJV Thy kingdom come . Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Four Reactors Have Core Damage; Spent Fuel Rods May Be Boiling: Chu Says US Believes Partial Meltdown Has Occurred

The chief of the IAEA has just correctly announced that the nuclear situation in Japan is "out of control". It is clear that catastrophic events are unfolding as we anticipated. Also, an evacuation warning has been issued around a second Fukushima complex at Fukushima Daima which has four additional reactors where water temperatures are reported to be rising. This means a total of 10 reactors that will all likely melt down. Last night I finally heard serious experts address the issue on CNN. They were clear that a catastrophic meltdown at one of the Daichi reactors would make the entire area a no-go, no-repair zone because any human in the vicinity would be killed in minutes. That doesn't mention that a complete meltdown might produce a crater engulfing the other reactors.

Separating out the conflicting information coming from Japan there is a universally acknowledged truth behind this. There are 1,760 spent fuel rods stored in non-containment structures above all of the Daichi reactors. It has been confirmed that those in reactor #4 have already melted from a position where their superheated mass would fall down on top of the reactor containment domes. The situation already indicates that the containment vessels will be breached, regardless, because Japanese authorities have been unable to restore cooling inside the reactors. In the meantime ever-larger evacuation orders are being issued and US military pilots have been issued Potassium Iodide.

Elsewhere in the world markets are reeling today under manifold pressures. It is being reported that four new York Times reporters have been kidnapped by Qaddafi loyalists in Libya. More worrisome is the fact that Iran has issued very strong protests against Saudi troops entering Bahrain which raises the risk (which I have previously mentioned) of a war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. That would be the equivalent of a catastrophic meltdown in the oil markets.

I will be taping a member-only video update today. Please watch for it.

Great thanks and praise for the excellent work being done by Chris Martenson, Nicole Foss and Zero Hedge during this crisis. -- MCR
