Ring Of FireWhile 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.  Most people don’t realize that 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 along the Ring of Fire.


Unfortunately, most Americans cannot even tell you what the Ring of Fire is.  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…

#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.

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

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

#12 A magnitude-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.

The Ring Of Fire

  • 2Gary2

    Is the Ring of Fire sort of like the Lake of Fire?? Gog and Magog can go for a swim.

    • Mark

      Hey Gary, does the New Madrid fault run through Wisconsin?

      • Colin

        Although the New Madrid fault doesn’t end in Wisconsin, it can create tremors which can be felt in that state.

  • 2Gary2

    you see there is this thing called plate tectonics that cause these sorts of things and it has nothing to do with the end times. You are watching too many doomsday preppers shows.

    • BBG

      The creator of those tectonic plates also controls them and He has promised us (both Catholics and Protestants) that because of the rejection of God, we are going to suffer increasing (in both frequency and severity) disasters, both man-made and natural. These are meant to force us back to our knees.
      The US has been warned that because of the sins of abortion, sodomy and materialism, we will be allowed to come to know the poverty of the third world….just sayin!

      • Brian Miller

        Oh, not this again…

  • Mark

    I live about 50 miles as the crow flies from Mt Thielsen and Mt. Bailey and Crater lake. They are not active and have not been for a very long time. But you never know. I would be more worried about a tidal wave off of the Oregon as I own apartments in some coastal towns. If that happened, they would be wiped out. If the volcanos went up, it would remind me of an old Frank Zappa tune called Billy the Mountain. Now that was funny. I used to tell the story of Billy the Mountian to my children whenever we where driving past Mt. Shasta in California. That was a real tradition.I get a laugh just thinking about it. All of you need to think about the earth in another way. It is not stable as we are all riding on big chunks of land floating on magma, surfs up anyone?

  • WarriorClass3

    World ends in 3 days, no need to floss.

    • Kukye

      Another famous site put that out. You are not original.

  • Kitiem3000

    Natural disasters haven’t really increased that much globally. Nature has always hated us. There was however an increase in natural disasters in the United States, or at least there was an increase in the severity and resulting damages. No wonder you feel the world is coming to an end.
    Over here however, we haven’t had a major disaster, natural or otherwise, since 1953. We feel pretty secure that God isn’t itching towards the reset button just yet.

    Never look at the whole world through a national lens. It distorts the view.

    I advised you several months ago about the following web


    I visit this web site DAILY ( when not out of town ); to
    follow the “ Signs of the Times “. The site confirms what you detail in your
    latest article about the Ring of Fire. I suggest you inform your new readers of
    this web site. Perhaps you’ll add this e-mail to your blogger’s comments, as you
    did previously.

    Merry Christmas,



  • Simply amazing i think with all the political and natural disasters happening we could very well live in the end times.m

  • leeholsen

    i dont know if i’m prideful enough to think the last days will come on my watch, but there are a lot of signs – mid-east cracking up, instantaneous news, catastrophies increasing.
    i’m more likely to think that much like rome, the US and western world has come to the end of its reign due to its own doings and the world is likely to go thru 25 years or so of hard times until enough say enough and individual responsibility starts being recognized as the only way back.
    boy, its really going to suck until we get there though. i’d say if you’ve been putting off a vacation that you wanted to go before you die, i’d do it in the next year. the inflation that has to come to get out of this and food shortages and energy shortages are going to be real and hairy. i can easily see going to vegas for a 3 day weekend only being something only the rich do before this is over. just the tax raises and obamacare taxes alone in 2013 is going to take the family vacation away from a lot of families and they dont even know it yet.

    • Mark

      You got that right. We are in for a rough ride and it will go on longer that my time left on this earth. What comes next is better anyway.

  • REE42

    I think…….uh…NO. I KNOW. People everywhere need to repent of their sins and turn back to The God who created them. They must not wait until they see to believe. If they pray and read His Word, it will witness with their heart (if they let It) that it is true and is no lie. THEN, they may “see,” in a way they have not before. Without faith, it is impossible to please Him. Don’t worry about what we don’t understand…,……but………….act on that we DO understand. He is at the door, and He IS The Door. He is AWESOME!!! And, HE LOVES YOU. Do not wait until you get all “cleaned up.” That is His job. Just ask.

    • Nexusfast123

      What has an imaginary sky person got to do with geological events.

      • Molly

        Just because you can not see God does not mean he is,”imaginary”

    • Devil’s Advocate

      so if we don’t want to be Christian we all will die painfully, we’ll thanks. That’s very nice of you. Very compassionate and understanding. So if your neighbors a satonist or a atheist then will you hate them? YES, Because to apply to that contract, you must be Christian. That seems to me like you Christians are prepping not for the worlds end, but for another crusade!

      • Ree42

        To: Devil’s Advocate (unregistered)

        I do not hate anyone. I love people. I do not want anyone to go be lost and forever separated from God. Most Christians have not made a very good impression. I do not even call myself that. I am a believer in Yeshua (His given name). He is real,and what times I would doubt and fail to understand it all, I remember the cross and the hellish torture and death Yeshua suffered in my place. In Adam all died spiritually and physically, In Yeshua all are made whole again. He took the punishment for us all. God would not have allowed that if there were another way. No, I do not hate. I only hate sin. Mine and everyone else’s.

        • Devil’s advocate

          I don’t believe that anyone should believe in any religion because someone else wants them too. In a way, it makes sence that if we believe in something, It becomes true. Then there is a god, science is true, and Allah is in command.basically, if you believe in something, it makes it real

        • Devil’s advocate

          By the way:

          You said “(unregistered user)” how do I register. I’m starting to have fun annoying you people

  • Paul Felix Schott

    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.

    well and study on your own after you have read 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.

    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

    Sun’s UV Rays will get stronger as each passing day goes by, read and i will
    tell you why.

    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.

    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.

    many will run out of Safe Drinking Water from pollution going into the worlds
    water supply. The rise in food prices will be global.

    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.

    Pollution and CO2 Carbon Dioxide go into the Tree Bark as a shield from most
    bugs so they do not eat the tree.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    there shall be famines, and pestilences, and Earthquakes, in divers
    places such as was not from the beginning of the Creation.

    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.

    Bad Weather Storms now are Babies compared to what is to come.

    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.

    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.

    every living person on Earth were to Plant A Tree Today we might have a chance.

    Earth’s Atmosphere Blanket surrounding it protects life on Earth as Our Lord
    and GOD will all that seek Him.

    it is written when the tree is full it is harvest time. All the Earth will
    someday burn away.

    is all Foretold in the Bible Read it

    and may our Lord Bless all that do so.

    Lord’s Little Helper

    Paul Felix Schott




    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.

    Bless You and Your Love ones

    Give thanks to our Lord Jesus Christ every day.

    is at its Limits


    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.

    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!

    is enough Energy from our Sun to Power all are needs on Earth and more.


    Fastest growing energy on Earth.

    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 ?

  • Nexusfast123

    Well the world did not end. I guess the point to note about this is that human civilisation has evolved along with its population during a period of historically low geological activity. Even during man’s early history we have evidence of massive volcanic eruptions (Toba and Karkatoa). If the Earth becomes more geologically active as is likely it will cause real problems as we have large populations living at the foot of large volcano’s – Mount Vesuvius for instance and close to the coast.

  • Nexusfast123

    Problem for all you scared religious types is that you are scared of the end of life and cannot comprehend the scale and size of the Universe which is NOT ordered and is a very violent place in terms of cosmic events. Live it while you can as mumbling to an imaginary sky person will not improve you life as there is nothing afterwards. We live on a little bit of rock drifting in an ocean of space. All the things you have ever known, experienced, loved, etc, have occurred on this piece of rock. If this rock were to be vaporised tomorrow religion would cease to exist as it is purely a human construct.

    • Brian Miller

      Amazing post.

    • cynicfrombc

      So you are a temporary conglomeration of molecules brought together by pure chance. Your life has no meaning and your opinions are as important as a puff of smoke. So stop trying to educate us.

  • There are plenty of end of the world scenarios still to play out. Obviously, an exact Julian calendar date can’t be accurately set based on ancient prophecies.

    An asteroid several city blocks in length will hopefully just miss the Earth on February 15th, 2013. Of course, NASA has stated that there is no risk or danger although it will be the nearest miss ever recorded in history at only about 16,000 miles away!


    Watch for 2013 to be filled with many major events that will have the possibility to change our lives forever.

  • REE42

    Religion is of the Devil. Jesus (given name Yeshua). is of God. God created man in His image, and then He came to earth in the image of man, walked among us, was crucified, buried and rose again. He paid the price of sin for us. Religion is man trying to get to God. Relationship is when God reached down to man. The universe is very vast. God encompasses it all. I know, it may be hard to believe, but if you ask, and knock and seek in truth, wanting truth, I believe you will be shown. I know that He made Himself real in my heart and changed my life. He can be found within us and within His Word. Then, we can learn the truth from then on, IF we continue. To believe all of this is just incidental is MUCH harder to believe, but whichever you CHOOSE to believe is still by faith and is a choice. If I did not truly believe what I cannot see in the natural, there would be no reason to live. It makes no sense at all.

  • Virginia

    There is a great app that shows a 3D image of the earth and all the seismic activity on the planet. California coast is just riddled with earthquakes on a constant basis as well as Alaska. It’s a real good app to look at on a day to day basis just for a reality check.

  • dear people,
    the end of days is refering to the end of Piscis Age..so all things on perspective and based on reason and facts ‘the ring of fire awakening’ is due because of solar activities and cosmic radiation. You bible lovers try to be more open mindness..

    There are a lot of nuclear power plants along that Ring of Fire!
    Another Fukushima waiting to happen?

  • COOL FACT ..NOT TALKING HIEROGLYPHS…ENTIRE EASTER ISLAND + ITS RING OF VOLCANIC STATUES ONCE RESTORED AS CREATED,MAGNIFIED.. MIMIC IN MINI the REAL PACIFIC RING OF FIRE.RING OF FIRE =RING OF VOLCANOES DORMANT + ERUPTING”SHOOTING LAVA”…EASTER STATUES =VOLCANIC statues PLACED IN A RING SOME WITH NO HATS DORMANT, SOME WITH RED “SHOOTING “HATS “ERUPTING”.IF you think pictionary there would be no other answer when SEEING this than Easter island tells us RING OF FIRE they knew advanced volcanology..the ONLY 7 of 1000+ statues NOT forming the circle stare directly into the RING of Fire…its pictionary only real… not the hieroglyphs the ENTIRE island! even the heads have reason! IF even children could see it how could it be threatening to science or deemed WRONG..its just cool ..
    they spoke pictionary !

  • adela

    It is the beginning of the end… The bible says it way before anything like this started…. Birds falling from the sky, ocean animals dead on the beach, red colored river in China, comet close to hit earth, and more.. God is giving us humanity a last chance to make things right and repent…
