Almost two centuries ago, the eruption lasted for 2 years in Iceland. Currently, it is reported that this eruption is costing $200 million a day. What if it lasts for 2 years? That would be a complete disruption of life for the world.

I know what you mean. Imagine what the people that's affected by that eruption, how different life is for them right now. They woke up one day and their lives has been change drastically. Same with China, Indonesia, my goodness Haiti, Chile.....What if something on that magnitude happens right here in the U.S.A.? How different life would be for many of us on a larger scale......

That's the risk they took when they decided to live on a known volcanic hot spot...

Situated along the mid-ocean ridge of the Atlantic Ocean, Iceland is a geologic "hot zone" with volcanic eruptions, fissure eruptions, shield volcanoes, pillow basalts, glaciers, geothermal features, and more. This island is also home to a variety of thermophilic life, inhabiting numerous geothermal features such as hot springs, mudpots, geysers, and fumaroles. Iceland's geothermal features are driven by the nature of its geologic setting. The combination of a plate boundary and a hot spot are the features that have created Iceland.

End times. It's chaos everywhere. For those who want to know, the Book of Revelation is truly revealing.

I'll point you to the appropriate thread.

Meanwhile, $200 million-a-day equates to $1.4 billion a week.

I'm not saying it's not a lot of money. It is. But that doesn't mean it's the end of world. People have been saying the end is near for quite a long time. Nothing has changed, and we're still here.

D'Nick, my goodness, you asked a question, it was answered! Why is this even on a Christian forum....There is some who still want to hear truth! If it's not you.....it's not you! NOW!! If you are going to believe God, it will serve you far better to BELIEVE ALL OF WHAT HE HAS TO SAY!! Come on people, do you think we make this stuff up? The show must go on....THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

Revelation speaks of these things amongst others, such as the ones that will come mocking and scoffing EVERY chance that they get...but it will fulfill and if I was some of you, I would be getting my "house" in order, both spiritually and physically.

Nobody can pick an ideal location in which to live. You might think that you were at one time buying the home of your dreams, but hello!! These things are sometimes unpredictable. No one asks for tragedy to disrupt their lives! There is no "running" from mother nature! For even she bows at the will of God! But today you have heads up!! If you know that you live three feet from YELLOWSTONE, move if you care to. The New Madrid Madrid Fault Line, near the coast.....

What we are saying to you day, after day, after day is: PICK UP THE BOOK AND READ IT!! For those of you that are confuse to where we are in the Book...it's the last chapter!! Iceland, Haiti, Chile, the Virgin Islands, (which had a 3.9 the other day) name it, Utah, whoever, whatever.......it's just the beginning of the birth pangs. Just the beginning......

Now, this not Ripley's believe it, or not! This is God's Word.....................now you can believe Him, or not!! It is, what it is! And what it is, is TRUTH!! ALL OF IT!

Does a woman have a child upon the first few birth pains? No, it's a process. Similarly, these things that have happened, are happening and will be happening are part of the process. It is written. Jesus is at the door.

Matt.24
[32] Now learn a parable of the fig tree [Israel]; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
[33] So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
[34] Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
