Major Volcanoes Along The Ring Of Fire Are Going Off Like Firecrackers

Ring Of Fire - WikipediaSo far this week, we have seen the most dangerous volcano in Mexico erupt, and three major volcanoes in Indonesia all erupted within the space of just 72 hours.  Mexico and Indonesia are both considered to be part of “the Ring of Fire”, and all along the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean volcanoes are starting to go off like firecrackers right now.  According to Volcano Discovery, 25 volcanoes in areas that are considered to be within the Ring of Fire have erupted recently.  Our planet appears to have entered a time of increased seismic activity, and those the follow my work regularly know that this is a theme that I revisit repeatedly.  Sadly, most Americans are not paying too much attention to this increase in seismic activity, but the truth is that it has very serious implications for the west coast of the United States.


It didn’t make a big splash in the mainstream media in the United States, but this week Mt. Popocatepetl erupted and coated homes and vehicles in Mexico City with a thick layer of volcanic dust.  And now some scientists are becoming concerned that this recent activity may be building up to “a major disastrous eruption”

Residents of Mexico City woke this morning to find ash coating cars and buildings after the Popocatepetl volcano belched out another toxic cloud.

The volcano is considered one of the world’s most dangerous due to its proximity to the city with more than nine million inhabitants.

Around 25 million people live within 62 miles of the crater of the 5,426-metre magma mount, who could also be affected.

There are fears the peak is building towards a major disastrous eruption after activity increased over the past few years, although, it has been periodically erupting since 1994.

There is a very good reason why Mt. Popocatepetl is considered to be the most dangerous volcano in Mexico.  If there ever is “a major disastrous eruption”, millions upon millions of people will be directly affected and it will bring Mexico’s economy to a screeching halt.  The following comes from one of my previous articles

Popocatepetl is an Aztec word that can be translated as “smoking mountain”, and more than 25 million people live within range of this extraordinarily dangerous mountain. Experts tell us that during the time of the Aztecs, entire cities were completely buried in super-heated mud from this volcano. In fact, the super-heated mud was so deep that it buried entire pyramids. In the event of a full-blown eruption, Mexico City’s 18 million residents probably wouldn’t be buried in super-heated mud, but it would still be absolutely devastating for Mexico’s largest city.

Meanwhile, the nation of Indonesia has been rocked by three significant volcanic eruptions in just a three day period

Giant clouds of ash engulfed the skies as Mount Sinabung became the third volcano to erupt in Indonesia, in the space of just three days.

Mount Rinjani on Lombok island near Bali erupted on Monday, with the Sinabung volcano on Sumatra island and Mount Gamalama in the Moluccas chain of islands following suit late yesterday.

There are approximately 130 active volcanoes in Indonesia, but this is still very unusual even for them.

But of even greater concern for Indonesia (and for the rest of the planet) is the magnitude 5.8 earthquake that shook Mount Tambora on July 31st.  Back in 1815, an eruption at Mount Tambora was the largest that has ever been recorded, and there are concerns that this recent very large earthquake may be a sign that another mega-eruption is on the way.

If you are not familiar with the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, it was truly a historic event.  More than 70,000 people died from the immediate blast, and the climate of the entire planet was cooled substantially for years afterwards.  The following description of that eruption comes from Wikipedia

After a large magma chamber inside the mountain filled over the course of several decades, volcanic activity reached a historic climax in the eruption of 10 April 1815.[5] This eruption had a volcanic explosivity index (VEI) of 7, the only unambiguously confirmed VEI-7 eruption since the Lake Taupo eruption in about AD 180.[6] (The 946 eruption of Paektu Mountain might also have been VEI-7.)

With an estimated ejecta volume of 160 km3 (38 cu mi), Tambora’s 1815 outburst is the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history. The explosion was heard on Sumatra, more than 2,000 km (1,200 mi) away. Heavy volcanic ash falls were observed as far away as Borneo, Sulawesi, Java, and the Maluku Islands.

The following year became known as “the year without a summer” because the global climate cooled down so dramatically.  There were crop failures all across the northern hemisphere, and as a result the world experienced the worst famine of the 19th century.

Someday, there will be another eruption of that magnitude at Mount Tambora or elsewhere along the Ring of Fire, and the world will experience another horrifying famine.

It is just a matter of time.

And let us not forget that the entire west coast of the United States also sits along the Ring of Fire.  In my novel and in my new book I warn about the coming eruption of Mt. Rainier.  But that is certainly not the only volcano on the west coast that we need to be concerned about.  In recent months there has also been increased seismic activity at Mt. Hood and at Mt. St. Helens.

We have been very fortunate not to have had any major volcanic eruptions in the continental United States since the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in 1980, but scientists assure us that we are well overdue for the next one.

In addition, the Yellowstone supervolcano may not be considered to be directly along the Ring of Fire, but it has also been exhibiting very strange behavior this year as well.  When it finally erupts, all of our lives are going to change in a single moment.

So there are definitely some big reasons why we should be concerned about all of these volcanoes that are currently erupting around the world.  It may not be tomorrow, but eventually Americans are going to see firsthand how a major volcanic eruption can permanently alter their lives.

    By the grace of God a catastrophic eruption has yet to happen. However, with all the abortions it’s just a matter of time until God demands reparation and accountability for this abomination!

    • Danny Maiorani

      You batshit craxy bible thumpers. Why are you even reading a scientific article anyway. You guys don’t believe in science anyway.

      • Danna

        My dear, the Bible is not a science book. The people in those days did not have the science that we have today. The Bible is the Word of God. You can’t prove that, you have to believe it by faith. The Bible says that faith is the only thing that pleases God. Science sets out to prove things through rigorous standards. Evolution is still a theory. It hasn’t been proven. And it never will be proven, unless we develop a time machine and go back in time to see exactly what did happen. God is a wonderful father who wanted a family that loved Him. He created all things good, until rebellion against Him messed things up. And He knew it would happen. But He wanted a family so bad, He was willing to take that risk. All who are His by their own free will to choose Him will receive Him. And all who are not His and choose by their own free will to not choose Him will walk a different path away from Him. Because God is good, everyone who chooses Him will enjoy all the good, the joy, everything He created for us to enjoy. This is eternity. Right now we are in a cosmic war between good and evil, very shortly to come to an end. The Bible says that God will not let this situation go on forever.

      • Governor_Rick_Scott

        Ummmm, please don’t insult vulcanologists by calling this piece of silly tripe “a scientific article”.

      • George

        By faith, we understand that the universe has been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:3 WEB

        Out of things not visible, what do you call, protons, neutrons, electronics, atoms and molecules?

    • Chara Choppel

      So you mean God should unleash a supereruption to punish people who aborts? Well, eruptions kill not only aborteers but all other people too. Not any justice in that.

  • James Staten

    Without going back to look up the information, Perry Stone did a prophecy study a few years ago about the End Times and Volcanic Activity. Jesus is coming, and for some sooner than others!!!!

    • Jim Davis

      OK as long as a televangelist says so it must be true!

      • James Staten

        Jim, I’m sure Perry would be proud of your recommendation.

    • winrob

      Jesus said that there were some that would not die, but would see the second coming. That is why the disciples didn’t write their Gospels until they were approaching the end of their lives. We are still waiting, and a LOT of people have died!

  • Jim Davis

    It’s not called the Ring of Fire for nothing. Earthquakes and volcanic activity along plate boundaries is nothing new. These are not The End Times. Sorry to disappoint those of you hoping to be “raptured” and leaving the rest of us here with this mess.

    • Paul Benson

      The is NO pre-tribulation rapture! The resurrection of the dead and the catching away of the believers does not happen until the Return of Christ. No one is left behind. The righteous are delivered and the wicked are destroyed by the wrath of God. Here is much solid proof the pre-trib theory is a falsehood:

      The truth of God’s Word will set you free from the deception of the pre-trib rapture hoax. Don’t enter the days ahead out of sync with what God is doing and saying because you have listened to the ear-tickling teachings of man.

      May the Lord deliver us all unto his perfect truth;
      Paul Benson

      • Danna

        I believe in pre trib rapture. The early church fathers who were taught by the apostles also taught this. No matter, if you read the bible, it talks about we are not subject to God’s wrath. But all of this subject, whether before, in the middle or at the end doesn’t really matter. I do not live life thinking “well I don’t have to worry because I will be gone”. Nope. I don’t think that way. And many of my pre trib rapture friends don’t either. And this is what we are constantly accused of. And it is not true. Maybe some think that way, but I do not. I live my life one day at a time, I do plan for tomorrow and tomorrows. But my plans could be interrupted by anything. I could even die tomorrow. All I want to do is to love God with my whole heart, mind, and soul. The only thing I think about is how much He loves me. That is the most important thing to me ever. I could care less about the rapture. If I go then I go, If I don’t go, then I don’t go. What’s the big deal?

        • Paul Benson

          The big deal is that truth sanctifies whereas error defiles. Lies produce bondage. They are displeasing to the Father. Is not that a big deal?

          The apostles DID NOT teach a pre-trib raputure. You are stating a falsehood there. I can prove to you from the Scriptures that the apostle Paul did not believe or teach an imminent return of Christ. It would have been an impossibility during his lifetime. Please consider reading this article: Bible proof the pre-trib theory is false.

          The proof is irrefutable.

        • George

          Like you, I used to believe in the pre-tribulation rapture. The likes of Hal Lindsey and his book, Late Great Planet Earth, Billy Graham Crusader messages, and etc. However, now that I look further into the scriptures, I realize that there are not 2 raptures, one for the pre-tribulations saints, another for the tribulation saints. However, you are on to something.

          Earnestly *study* to present yourself approved to God, a workman unashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. II Timothy 2:15 LITV

          Your point that God loves you deeply is well taken and important and rapture specifics are less important. Continue to prayerfully study the scriptures. I believe you will come to a greater understanding.

          Through history, there have been many martyrs and imprisoned people for Christ. The purges in Russia, China, parts of Africa and the Far East, Native American tribes that nearly all became Christians, the Catholics in Japan, purge of true believers in the dark ages by the Roman papacy, and etc.

          The Lord has allowed some people to escape death, as in the case of Corrie Ten Boom, whose family rescued Jews in Nazi occupied Netherlands during WW2, only to have the rest of her family imprisoned and die.

          Death is God’s way of escaping to glory and certainly not for the faint hearted. We see Christians now being martyred by the likes of the so called Islamic State.

          Either we suffer as poor being unchipped (not receiving the specific mark of the beast for banking recognition) or die in the process, refusing to worship the beast.

          And was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak, and might cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the freemen and the slaves, it causes that they give to them all a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads, even that not any could buy or sell, except the one having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name. Revelation of John 13:15-17 LITV

          which is followed by

          And I heard a voice out of Heaven saying to me, Write: Blessed *are* the dead, the ones dying in the Lord from now. Yes, says the Spirit, they shall rest from their labors, and their works follow with them. Revelation of John 14:13 LITV

          At the end, God will allow some to be spared, as He did Corrie, but others will be martyred as with the rest of her family.

          But the most important is,

          For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 LITV

      • George

        I used to believe in the pre-trib rapture, but not any more. Matthew 24 is clear. Christ answers 3 questions asked by the disciples.

        As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, [1, destruction of the temple] when will these things be? [2] What is the sign of your coming, [3] and of the end of the age?” Matthew 24:3 NHEB

        Destruction of the temple is mentioned in verses 15 – 22, which occurred 70 AD.

        Precursors we are seeing now for events leading to the end of the age are referred to in verses 4 – 14). Earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars are just the beginning.

        Signs of his coming are in verses 23 – 51. In concert with 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, the dead in Christ meet the Lord in the air first. Then those of us still alive will join them. It is very clear. Those taken away are those who do not know Christ, they are killed.

        For wherever the carcass is, there is where
        the vultures gather together.
        Matthew 24:28

        It is possible that Christians will die as martyrs. Bible says after all,

        And do not be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. Rather, fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28 NHEB

        I heard the voice from heaven saying, “Write, ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors; for their works follow with them.” Revelation of John 14:13 NHEB

        But when this corruptible will have put on incorruption, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” I Corinthians 15:54 NHEB

        That in Revelation was in reference to not receiving the Mark of the Beast. We as Christians may very well die for standing for Christ. God will grant us the grace at that very hour.

    Certainly we should note seismic activity, but this is overblown. Consider the past: 1815, Tambora; 1883, Krakatora; 1902, Santa Maria; 1912, Novarupta; 1991, Pinatubo. These were monsters that make recent eruptions look puny. Is the world still here? Um, I think so.

    The “church” is not first taught in at the time of Paul. It is derived from a difference in the original languages of the OT-Hebrew and the NT-Greek. If one goes back to the OT Greek Septuigant, written about 265 BC by Hebrew Scholars/rabbis in Alexandria Egypt, well before the NT was written, one will find the NT Greek word, “ecclesia”, translated as “church” in the NT, is used throughout the OT. The Septigant is a bridge between the OT and the NT and if used properly shows the oneness of both testaments. They both say and teach the same doctrines!
    The Hebrew word often translated as either “assembly” or “congregation” is the same word translated in the OT Septigant as “ecclesia”. Therefore the “church” began at Mt Sinai even as Stephen stated in Acts 7:25 and Paul speaks of as being made up of direct descendants of Abraham and of those who are not his direct descendents in Romans 9:6-7. These would be the Gentiles who have become part of the commonwealth of Israel. (Eph. 2:11-16)
    The problem with our doctrine today is that most Bible scholars do not know what the OT says and assume the NT is actually a new revelation. But as the old saying goes, “The OT concealed is iin the NT revealed.” If true, and it is, the NT can only “reveal” or make plain what is already contained in the OT, but is somewhat hidden there.
    Paul knew what was hidden there as he was taught it properly by Messiah (Gal. 2:11-17) but today’s scholars don’t know it! It is the same accusation Jesus made against the religious leaders of his day! (John 5:44-47)
    The devil had had a marvelous time fooling many who think they are intelligent in God’s Word but actually teach false doctrine to many believers. We should not be surprised at the fact God’s Word is twisted today as even in Jesus’ day the religious teachers were falsely teaching His Word. He was in constant conflict with them correcting their false doctrines.
    At the end of the age, Peter prophesies in his second sermon after Pentecost (Shavuot) that God will “send Jesus, the Chist appointed for you, whom the heavens MUST receive [retain] until the the period of the restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient times.” (Acts 3:20-21)
    From this prophesy we understand that the doctrines of mankind will be incorrect until just prior to Chrit’s return when He will send us the third Elijah (Elijahm the John Baptist and then ?) to RESTORE His people to a pure Truth. Those who already think they have everything correct will not accept correction from this final “Elijah”.
    We need to be humble and teachable so as not to grab hold of error and believe it is Truth. Scripture emphatically teaches that it is the leaders who are most often guilty of leading God’s people astray.

    I’ll never understand

    Ah, therein lies the problem. Fellowship with God and other believers, i.e., “church” is God’s idea, reiterated by Jesus.

    For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in their midst.” Matthew 18:20 WEB

    who existed from the beginning.

    He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn’t recognize him. John 1:10 WEB

    Fellowship with God and believers has existed in the Old as well as the New, and even before there were temple buildings for organized worship.

    Regarding God’s judgments, God will take care of his people, instructing them at the proper time to remove them from his impending judgement (i.e., Lot, Noah, Elijah, exodus of the Israelites under Moses, Rahab, etc.) However, He permits suffering as part of the believer’s refining process, for example, the ongoing Christian slaughter worldwide today to include slaughters of the past.

    He gave this bit of advice to Peter,

    Peter seeing him, said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If I desire that he stay until I come, what is that to you? You follow me.” John 21:21-22 WEB

    His instruction is very clear to us, we follow Him. As to whether God will remove all believers from earth prior to the impending Satanic doom, where some are beginning to wonder why believers are still on the earth:

    and saying, “Where is the promise of his coming? For, from the day that the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” II Peter 3:4 WEB

    Will they be abiding in Christ, just as he instructed Peter as well as all believers? Or, when the Holy Spirit directs, will they be looking back as Lot’s wife did and be destroyed like her?

    God will deliver his people, but not in the way you think. Are you obeying the Word in the things you have reiterated to me? Are you abiding in Him?

    Jesus therefore said to those Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word, then you are truly my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” John 8:31-32 WEB

    I would bet that this recent round of EQ activity is the result of some country(s) using scalar technology. There are several handfuls of nations possessing these type of weapons. Even the Yakuza (Japanese Mafia) allegedly has access to scalar weapons.

    • winrob

      Define “scalar weapons”. Note that scalar fields do NOT propagate. Only vector fields like electromagnetic fields can do so.
