If you're going to post a link you need to provide a brief description on what the link is about or few to none will click it.

Busy day for the Ring of Fire, from continued volcanic activity in the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia to strong earthquakes near Jakarta, Indonesia and Alaska. A volcanic eruption north of Tokyo, Japan even caused a deadly avalanche Mount Kusatsu-Shirane: Japanese soldier killed by falling rocks after volcano erupts - CNN
A 6.4 quake in Taiwan yesterday-- makes sense that the western edge of pacific plate would move following eastern?

Not sure why a 6.4 would topple a building-- must not have met earthquake codes--
Prayers are with all those touched by this tragedy and loss of life--

New Zealand and the "Ring of Fire."

Nov. 13th, 2016--7.8 quake: Left "UTTER DEVASTATION"

[FONT=&quot]"New Zealand lies in the seismically active "Ring of Fire", a 40,000 km arc of volcanoes and oceanic trenches that partly encircles the Pacific Ocean. Around 90 percent of the world's earthquakes occur within this region." (cnbc.com; Nov. 13th, 2016) (photo also from cnbc)

'For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit,
which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.'

11Cor. !!:2.
For I am jealous over you with Godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to One Husband,
that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.'

you better believe that our Saviour has and will continue to show and exhibit His dis-pleasure
with this world's 'continuing absurd and dis-respectful exhibits that without a doubt have shown
that they have thrown His and His Holy Ways into the ditch!!!

Hey, thanks for reminding me of that song-- I really enjoyed it! One of his best! Got to learn it now on guitar--

There was an earthquake today in Alaska near the newly discovered dangerous splay-fault area on the edge of the "Shumagin-Gap," an area roughly between Perryville and Sand Point, which is an area overdue for a major earthquake in the 9.0 range, similar to the one in 2011 in Japan which shifted the earth's axis and moved the coast of Japan by eight feet. The quake was magnitude 5.0 and was 22 miles south of Perryville.

This is significant because this new geologic structure, I believe, can be "jarred loose," like the one near Japan, by a smaller quake such as this one. Without knowing where the boundaries of the splay-fault are, it's hard to determine, but, the 5.0 quake was on the edge of the Shumagin Gap. The problem with these dangerous splay-faults from what I've been reading is that they are like a piece of a broken ceramic dinner plate. If the main earth's plate under the sea-floor was to shift, it could raise the smaller broken off plate, like in Japan, and create a massive Tsunami that could reach Hawaii. The reason the recent quake last month did not cause the expected Tsunami, was because it was not in this area for one, and it was not a vertical-lifting of the sea-floor which is what causes large Tsunami's, but was a side-ways slip of sea-floor known as a "Megathrust" slip-strike of the fault. What concerns me, is that this smaller quake could dislodge the smaller plate-section, making a vertical displacement of sea-water happen, in addition to the slip-strike of the major sea-floor fault. That would be a massive disaster similar to the 1964 Alaska quake and the 2011 Japan quake, that shifted huge sections of land-masses and even the earth's axis. You do the math--

Here's some pictures: (these may be subject to copyrights and are used here for demo or theory purposes only)
shumagin gap2.jpg shakemap-1870187.jpg shumagin gap.jpg

This is what the experts say:

"This new research indicates that the Shumagin Gap, contrary to recent speculation that it might be a relatively “safe” seismic zone in the arc, may pose a threat similar to that of the rest of the Aleutian subduction zone. Using advanced, ship-based 3-D seismic imaging, the researchers discovered large, localized faults (called “splay faults”) above the megathrust (see Figure 2). While the majority of the megathrust may not be seismically locked in the gap, these splay faults could accumulate the stresses necessary for a large, tsunamigenic earthquake. Similar splay faults moved during the 2010 M9.0 Tohoku earthquake and contributed to the earthquake being much larger than previously thought possible in that area of Japan."
(Newsweek.com; Aug 1st, 2017).

"What scientists failed to realize was that part of the edge of the continental plate had become detached—and that this posed a major risk. A smaller earthquake dislodged the detached section, creating the huge earthquake and tsunami that followed. While scientists knew this fault existed, they did not understand the devastation it could cause.
In their study, researchers found a region of the Shumagin Gap that is detached in the same way. The fault they identified stretches about 90 miles roughly parallel to the land and extends over 20 miles down. The maps suggest the seafloor has dropped to one side and risen on the other. Researchers also found a cluster of seismic activity near where the new fault meets the plate boundary, indicating it is active." (earthquake.alaska.edu)

If this 5.0 quake today was in the splay-fault area, along the right border of this map, or any other quakes happening in this area, it could prove to be very dangerous, since that is what happened before the massive 2011 Tohoku Japan quake that killed over 15,000 people, many of whom have not found homes yet. The yellow area of the map is where the sea-floor could lift and move massive amounts of water.

Also, from a Christian point of view, these quakes, including increased activity along the "Ring of Fire," such as in Mexico, and symbolic signs such as the recent quake there occurring on the anniversary of the 1985 quake there that took the lives of so many people, are considered "birth-pangs," of the end-times, including the 1964 quake occurring on a "Good Friday," a day that remembers when Jesus died for the sins of the world. The Lord is a loving-God, and human suffering caused by wars and natural disasters, grieves the Lord, and when forces of evil influence disturbed individuals to disrupt peaceful life, it can also be seen as warning signs that God is holding them back, as the Bible describes, allowing people time to turn from evil and choose sides, before the "meek will inherit the earth," or the kind-hearted people--because kindness matters to God.

I can see why-- one of his best-- i wonder if it refers to a wedding ring, or a burning circus ring, or what? How do you fall into a ring of fire?

Scientists recently found 91 volcanoes beneath the ice of western Antarctica that form the southern edge of the Ring of Fire. They are in the area that scientists say some glaciers are melting a bit, so that probably has something to do with it.

It's been quiet in the world as far as earthquakes, thank God! but some more thoughts--

It came to mind that after the 1964 9.0 "Good Friday" quake here, about a year later, there was another huge quake, 8.7 in the Aleutian chain-- a long chain of islands where the aleut people settled and lived for centuries. As this was described on the earthquake site, the North Pacific Plate, broke midway down the chain-- literally broke the Aleutian chain in half!!

COME ON!! ARE YOU SEEING IT!!??

AFTER THE EASTER FRIDAY 1964 9.0 QUAKE, MARCH 27TH, 5:36pm, that lasted a horrifying 5 minutes--

A YEAR LATER-- "THE CHAINS WERE BROKEN!!" by an 8.7 quake on February 4th, 1965 in the rat islands-- come on:
"THE RATS OF THE WORLD WERE WARNED!!"
Get it together or get out!

"The Lord is coming to judge the earth!" (Psalm 96:13; NKJV)
and the meek are going to inherit it. (Matthew 5:5)

"Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day." (Psalm 96:2; NKJV)
"He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel.All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God." (Psalm 98:3) "...worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth." (Psalm 96:9)

COME ON! HOW CAN CRITICS SAY THESE WEREN'T DIVINE SIGNS?

AND THEN A MASSIVE ASTEROID-- ABOUT ONE KILOMETER ACROSS (HALF-MILE), WHIZZED BY THE EARTH ALSO ON FEBRUARY 4TH, 2018 THE DAY OF THE AMERICAN SUPERBOWL, WHERE THE EAGLES WON:
COME ON!! YOU AWAKE!?? A WARNING SHOT ACROSS THE BOW!!

"But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not be weary." (Isaiah 40:31;NLT)
"Iceberg!! Right ahead!!"

Let's stand up--right now--and put our hands together and praise the LORD to this song!!
Set aside all your worries and cares, and trust in the LORD!!
