15 signs that the Ring of Fire is waking up as we head into 2013

15 signs that the Ring of Fire is waking up as we head into 2013

While most of the world has been focused on other things, the Ring of Fire has been quietly waking up. Over the past couple of months, there has been a steady string of noteworthy volcanic eruptions and earthquakes that have occurred along the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean. But because none of them have happened near a highly populated area, we really haven’t heard much about them in the news.

But if activity along the Ring of Fire continues to increase, it is inevitable that a major event will happen near a major city at some point. When that happens, the entire world will be focused on the Ring of Fire once again.

Approximately 90 percent of all earthquakes and approximately 75 percent of all volcanic eruptions occur along the Ring of Fire. The entire west coast of the United States sits along the Ring of Fire and a massive network of faults runs underneath California, Oregon and Washington. Fortunately, the west coast has not experienced any devastating seismic events in recent years, but scientists assure us that will change at some point. So it is important to sit up and take notice when there are reports of increasing activity.

The following is how Wikipedia defines the “Ring of Fire”…

The Pacific Ring of Fire (or sometimes just the Ring of Fire) is an area where large numbers of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements.

It runs roughly along the rim of the Pacific Ocean. Coastal residents of four different continents realize that a major event along the Ring of Fire could fundamentally change their lives in a single moment.

Nearly all of the worst earthquakes in modern history have occurred along the Ring of Fire. When the Ring of Fire is very active, it is a very big deal. That is why so many people are alarmed that the Ring of Fire seems to be entering a period of increased activity.

The following are 15 signs that the Ring of Fire is waking up as we head into 2013

800px-Pacific_Ring_of_Fire.svg


 

#1 Mount Lokon, which is located in Indonesia, has erupted more than 800 times since July. On Monday, volcanic ash from the volcano reached heights of up to 10,000 feet.


#2 An “orange alert” had been issued for towns and villages near the Tungurahua volcano in Ecuador. On Tuesday it erupted and shot lava up to a half mile above its crater.


#3 Lava is still flowing out of the Tolbachik volcano which is located on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Anyone that has ever played the board game “Risk” knows where Kamchatka is located.


#4 Lava also continues to flow and ash also continues to rise from the Fuego volcano in Guatemala.


#5 On Tuesday, an ash plume more than 2.5 kilometers high had risen from the Paluweh volcano in Indonesia.


#6 There was an average of about 4 seismic events per hour at the Popocatépetl volcano in Mexico on Tuesday.


#7 Scientists recently discovered “one of the world’s weirdest volcanoes” on the floor of the ocean just off the coast of Baja, Mexico.


#8 Mt. Fuji (located not too far from Tokyo, Japan) has been dormant for about 300 years, but in recent months there have been increasing signs of activity there. One study recently found that a “magma chamber under the mountain has come under immense pressure“, and one prominent scientist is warning that Mt. Fuji is due for “a big-scale explosive eruption“. Authorities were alarmed when a tunnel leading to Mt. Fuji collapsed on December 2nd, killing 9 people.


#9 Scientists are now warning that there is a very dangerous build up of magma at a large number of Japan’s 110 active volcanoes.


#10magnitude-6.1 earthquake struck off the coast of Sulawesi, Indonesia on Monday.


#11magnitude-6.0 earthquake hit the New Britain region of Papua New Guinea on Saturday.


#12magnitude-6.5 earthquake struck the Gulf of Alaska in mid-November.


#13 A magnitude-7.3 earthquake hit Japan earlier this month.


#14 There has been a substantial increase in earthquake activity in the Long Valley caldera region of California, and authorities tell us that “magma is indeed moving down there“.


#15 Over one recent five-week period, more than 170 significant earthquakes were detected in one town in Chile. That town is now being called “one of the shakiest places on earth”.


All of those events occurred along the Ring of Fire.

So why is all of this happening?

Well, there are certainly a lot of theories out there.

In the United States, a large percentage of the population is convinced that an increase in natural disasters is evidence that we are in the “last days” described in the Bible. In fact, one recent survey found that a whopping 36 percent of all Americans believe that the increase in natural disasters that we have seen in recent years is an indication that we are in the end times…
More than a third of Americans believe the severity of recent natural disasters is evidence that we are in the 'end times' described in the New Testament — a period of turmoil preceding Jesus’ Second Coming and the end of the world.

'There is a significant proportion of Americans who see these phenomena through a theological lens,' said Daniel Cox, research director at the Public Religion Research Institute, which released a poll on religion and climate change on Thursday (Dec. 13) in partnership with Religion News Service.

'It’s hardly a fringe belief. It’s nearly four in 10 Americans who are embracing this,' Cox said.

The conviction is particularly strong among white evangelical Protestants (65 percent), and less common among Catholics (21 percent) and the religiously unaffiliated (15 percent).

Other Americans believe that there are other causes for all of these natural disasters, and a large number of Americans are absolutely convinced that nothing unusual is happening at all.

So what do you think? Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below…

Ariel...I agree with you.the end is like labor pains.the events will become closer and closer to each other.It seems that way already.

Why does commentary attack the PERSON instead of offering intelligent comment or advice? It isn't just the Ring of Fire which is highly active. Te tectonic Plates are moving- up and down. Google the floods in Jakarta, Bangkok, Vietnam.... There are major scientific predictions out there, not just biblical-type prophecies. One prediction is that a major event will be the Mississippi Bridges collapsing. Now THAT is provable - just wait and watch.

This article seems to ignore the Australasian Plate. Here in New Zealand we have constant eruptions and earthquakes. The main section of the plate (which Australia sits on) is moving north east, and the smaller eastern section (which NZ sits on) has sheared away because it is locked above the Kermadec subduction zone. It wouldn't surprise me if this NE movement toward Indonesia is the trigger for the activity clockwise around the ROF. The above map clearly shows the intrusion of the australasian plate into the Paciific ring. Meanwhile here in NZ, we have the north island tearing apart and a string of volcanoes ( which continues offshore all the way to Tonga) spewing subducted rhyolitic material; in the south island the subduction zone is locked so we have mountain building as the land mass is crunched. There is no such thing as a natural disaster, only human disaster. We have a very good site Geonet,org,nz for those interested

The Ring of Fire is definitely a region to observe for activity currently. Another region which is worth considering too is the Mediterranean - incorporating lands/waterways near the south/west of Russia, sweeping through Greece and towards the east (border) of France. This seems to be quite an active 'area'. The Southern Ocean (near Antarctica) could be another region which may (??) be one to observe too. The southern lands of North America (from west coast), sweeping through the lower states and up, through to Maine are being keenly watched too. But my guess, too, is that there may be other regions, away from the ROF, which could become 'aggravated' with all current (and future) energy transference's and spot happenings.......time will tell......

I agree candy, you show people and they still won't believe what the Bible says science is of man science cant figure out alot of the this world yet they try to find out about things that they can't explain, maybe it was not meant to be explained read genesis chapter 1 this were signs written 2,000 years ago not 50,000,000,000,000,0000,

I agree with the bible's proficies as well as the scientific. Compare the earth to a vain person's face or body. If your face is too oily you may get pimples, acne, white heads, etc.. What do most people do? Apply chemicals to clear and microderm their face, plastic surgery and inplants thus stripping the face and body of normal processes. Too much antibiotics and anti-bactirials strips our body of necessary radicals to maintain our health balance. The earth is constantly refreshing its self by releasing pressure from it's interior and surface such as spewing magma (volcanoes), stretching and molting (earthquakes), refreshing, cooling its self with water and wind (rain storms, snow storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, tsunamis) but not excessively. Continously creating the necessary natural balance to exist. We deforest, we concrete the earth, we purge the earth of its natural resources underneath and above, we disrespect this planet by weighing it down with unbiodigradable man made crap, we weaken the ozone not just with chemicals but by all the garbage in space. Call me crazy but wouldn't the space junk affect the natural pattern of the sun and orbital axis? Are we not underwriting the celestial plan for mankind?

The Tectonic plates are large objects. They have been in motion a long time. Inertia will ensure they keep on moving. Their pathways are not smooth. When they encounter an irregularity something must give. That is all that is involved. Blaming humans and saying that gods are involved is primitive thinking. It's time we grew up.

Indeed, primitive thinking has been on far too long

There have been suggestions that planets are warming and evidence that it is not due to the sun. What is occurring is that our solar system has moved into a slightly increased magnetic flux which operates like a microwave oven and is warming the core of the earth and thus the oceans. The volcanoes erupting will create a shield and cause cooling. We need to accept that we are not causing the increase in temperature and although I applaud less pollution we may desperately need more power to alleviate the initial increase in temperature. Also if the oceans do warm then there will be more evaporation and more precipitation (snow and rain); More severe weather and more floods. I am certain we will survive if we can adjust.

The rotational motion is changing. Starting with the 2001 8.8 in Indonesia earthquake. At some point the gyrostatic force of all things spinning on this planet will effect its angular momentum.

Here are some indication how last day events will occur. God destroys the earth in the last days by fire along with many other events that he will allow. When the meteor hits and we have a time of trouble as never has been on the earth, then everyone will realize that the end has started. The earth will wake up, earthquakes, tsunamis will wipe away entire Islands not just part of them, such as Fiji, Haiti and many in Indonesia. And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. (Rev 9:1) And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. (Rev 9:2) A meteor impact will cause this darkness upon the earth and contaminate the air. Volcano ash is also very similar as "the smoke of a great furnace" blocking the sun and polluting the air. Such impact can also lead to the rapid melting of the polar ice caps and begin a chain of events leading to the extinction of the race. The last day biblical events occur through a period of time. Fire from beneath and fire from above will be part of this final destruction. "And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land. (Zep 1:17-18) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. (Isa 24:3-6) So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. (Mat 13:27-30) The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Mat 13:38-42) This furnace of fire is at the end of the world, leaving no one. The earth will be utterly empty. Purified by fire. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger. (Zep 2:3) At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them. (Jer 18:7-10) And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. (Rev 16:9) And the rest of the men ..repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.(Rev 9:20-21) The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die. (Eze 18:20-24) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Gal 6:7) Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God. (Rom 2:6-11)

I wonder when "God" people will realize with all their infinite wisdom that the whole bible has been written thousands of times over, and as such probably not even close to the original scripts. Jesus wasn't the son of a Carpenter and virgin, he was Caesarean son of Julius and Cleopatra. Thats why he was missing for 20+ years, as he was in India studying under the mystery schools there. When he returned and claimed "I am the son of God" it was because Julius (his father) and Cleopatra (his mother) where both considered gods at that time. The virgin birth comes from Cleopatra be proclaimed as "Isis" who was a virgin when she had Horus (according to Egyptian mythology). So when he says he will be crowned in his fathers kingdom, he was talking about Rome. Now that thats out of the way, we are indeed headed towards "The Sixth Extinction" event on the planet, it appears as if the ring of fire will play a key role. If you look at the Apophis asteroid (Dr. Degrasse-Tyson did an amazing vid on YT for it) it appears as it may head into the pacific if it passes through the "keyhole" gravitational point. Strange days indeed.

Don't know why Mt Garibaldi is on the Map? Having lived in Vancouver I have been up there many of times,there are much more recent Volcano's up north West from there that have Thermal Springs and still venting hydrogen sulfide. I also wish to agree with Paul Felix Schott comments. Only divine intervention can save this Planet or it will soon look like Mars. God Bless you all and have a Merry Christmas and Happy 2013.

Soon all will take note to the sounds and rumbling of Volcanoes and Earthquakes Around Earth that are Waking Up at a Alarming Rate. Just as they did in 1883 from Krakatoa. Read well and study on your own after you have read this. This is not a game or joke our Sun gives off a Solar Wind all day year round if you live in the State of Alaska you see it in the sky above what a sight it is going through our Earth’s Magnet Polls of the North and the South, North Poll. It’s called the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis. The day will come when you will be able to see it all over Earth as in the year 1859 Solar Flare, It was the largest in 500 years. Two Astronomer’s Hodgson and Carrington told the World that the Solar Flare made a Geomagnetic Storm reach Earth in hours not days. Back then it gave new meaning to Reach For The Skies from Telegraph Operators. For hours sparks flew from the key board. Even after the Batteries were disconnected. Nov 3 and 4, 2003 had a X40+ Class Solar Flare. Our Sun’s UV Rays will get stronger as each passing day goes by, read and i will tell you why. The Great big forest have be stripped from most of the Earth for Greed of Money by the Wicked. The trees are our Main Source of Oxygen on this Plant. The Forest Trees scrubs the Pollution out of the air and makes Oxygen from the rain and dirt that it grows in. The Forest Trees do more than just make Oxygen they stop Soil Erosion, just Look at the 1930 Dust Bowl. Greed by our Government taxes led farmers to clear cut all their Forest and farm all the land they were being Tax on. They had to farm it to pay for the Taxes. Why leave the Trees when food crop makes Money. This Did not Help the Depression that effected most all Worldwide. This coming year 2013 more than 100 million will suffer from Malnutrition lack of food and Dehydration lack of water. Many will not make it and die! as have in the last few years. Soon many will run out of Safe Drinking Water from pollution going into the worlds water supply. The rise in food prices will be global. In the United States of America alone more than 46+ Million Americans Received Food Stamps and that number is going up every day every year for more than 4 years in a row now. The Pollution and CO2 Carbon Dioxide go into the Tree Bark as a shield from most bugs so they do not eat the tree. Less Forest less Oxygen this is why the moon. That has no Oxygen is very cold on the side with out Sun Light, And hot as ever on the side with Sun Light. Way too cold and too hot to live there. You would need at least 10 times the Energy we use on Earth to even live there and life on the Moon would be very short. With no blank of Oxygen to lessen or reduce the Sun’s UV Rays and Solar Wind they are deadly there on our Moon. Every Mt. Climber and Aircraft Pilot knows the higher you go the thinner the Oxygen and colder it gets. Just spend a night on a Mt. top above 13,000 feet with no Sun Light and you will see or should i say feel the cold stinging any of your exposed skin. If you are new to Mt. Climbing stay below 10,000Ft. The Astronauts and the Cosmonauts and Fighter Pilots that i have been with for years know this very well, and the Radiation Hazards to humans at High Altitudes. Soon the Sun’s Solar Wind and UV rays will be way to strong for most to go out in the Sun Light for even a short time. The Geomagnetic Storm to come and the Bad Weather Storms well you have not seen nothing yet and the Sea Level is Rising the Oceans. Many Millions have been affected by Floods in China and Pakistan just last year. In 2005 Over a Thousand dead in New Orleans flood, and the list going on. The sounds and rumbling of Volcanoes and Earthquakes Around Earth are Waking Up at a Alarming rate. And there shall be famines, and pestilences, and Earthquakes, in divers places such as was not from the beginning of the Creation. The last 30 years On Earth we have broke all High Temp Records and the temp it is still going up. All the Worlds Ice Glacier are melting at an Accelerating Rate. The Glaciers and Polar Ice Caps store more water than all the Fresh Water Lakes on Earth. Many of them are drying up or water levels are going down past the lowest point every recorded. The Bad Weather Storms now are Babies compared to what is to come. They will get even bigger and worse less Oxygen the more UV Rays to the Earth and more Water molecules will evaporate and go up into the Earth’s Atmosphere. Less Oxygen the colder without sun light and hotter with it. The Sky full of more water vapor molecules, more snow in the winter and more Flash Floods in the Summer. All earth will see way more fires and the Deserts are growing larger. If every living person on Earth were to Plant A Tree Today we might have a chance. The Earth’s Atmosphere Blanket surrounding it protects life on Earth as Our Lord and GOD will all that seek Him. Then it is written when the tree is full it is harvest time. All the Earth will someday burn away. This is all Foretold in the Bible Read it and may our Lord Bless all that do so. The Lord’s Little Helper Paul Felix Schott [email protected] KI4-AEX P.S. 2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the Earth and its works will be burned up. GOD Bless You and Your Love ones Give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ every day. Earth is at its Limits MANY OF US IN THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY HAVE BEEN SAYING SOME OF THIS FOR YEARS The United Nations is now taking a serious look into "Earth's Limits" Earth will very soon be at its Limits of no return for many things including all life on Earth. If we keep going at this rate we will not have another 20 years to go back to Rio De Janeiro to play. Most all in the Scientific Community said this 20 years ago at the last time Leaders set up this meeting in Rio De Janeiro. Of course on the Tax payers money, and of course they said about the same thing again we need to do something! There is enough Energy from our Sun to Power all are needs on Earth and more. Solar Energy The Fastest growing energy on Earth. Albert Einstein 100 years ago showed the World it could get Free Energy, Electric from the SUN. (THE PHOTOVOLTAIC EFFECT). He won the Nobel Prize for this. We still do not teach this to are YOUNG in SCHOOLS why? Church's all over the Globe have gone Solar why have not are SCHOOLS ?
