Blog note: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11). Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. This verse from Luke is one of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency and occurrence prior to giving birth. End of note.

The University of Utah Seismograph Station, which is responsible for the operation and analysis of the Yellowstone Seismic Network, revealed 153 earthquakes hit the Yellowstone National Park region in July. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the largest quake had a magnitude of 2.5 and was part of a small sequence of 12 earthquakes.
A larger sequence of 77 earthquakes occurred 14 miles south-southwest of Mammoth in Wyoming during the time period between July 16 and 27. The largest earthquake was a micro earthquake of magnitude 2.3 which struck on July 24 at 8:40pm. Larger earth sequences like these are fairly common and they account for roughly half of the total seismic activity in the Yellowstone National Park. The USGS also revealed that steamboat geysers remained active in July, with eruptions on July 6 and 20.
Yellowstone Volcano Observatory scientists are also continuing to assist colleagues in Hawaii with the response to the ongoing crisis at Kīlauea Volcano.
The Yellowstone super volcano is one of the most dynamic sites in the world and was was closed on July 10 after park authorities found cracks in the rock.
