Foreshadow Now, ‘Season of the End Times’:
Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… 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).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several 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.
Evidence of a new magma deposit in Reykjanes peninsula, more than 6,000 earthquakes in 3 months, Iceland. Most activity ever recorded in the region.

Considerable seismic activity continues at the Reykjanes peninsula, Iceland, with more than 6 000 earthquakes manually checked since the beginning of the year. According to the Icelandic Met Office (IMO), this is the most intense activity ever recorded in the region since the beginning of digital monitoring in 1991. Data indicates the activity is affecting all volcanic systems in the Reykjanes peninsula and Reykjanes ridge. In addition, GPS measurements, as well as detailed analysis and model calculations of the available data, now give evidence of a new magma deposit west of the Reykjanes peninsula under Rauðhólar and Sýrfell.
Recent data show that uplift has started again, with the center just west of Mt. Thorbjorn, IMO reported on April 2, 2020. Uplift was measured from January 22, 2020, until the beginning of February and has started up again during the first half of March.
During the first sequence in January-February, the deformation rate was about 3 – 4 mm (0.11 – 0.15 inches) per day with a total of 6 cm (2.3 inches) uplift during the whole period.
In the sequence that is ongoing now, the deformation rate looks to be only half of what it was (or even slower). In total, the uplift is about 7 – 8 cm (2.7 – 3.1 inches) since the end of January.
The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) who met on March 28 still believes that the most likely explanation of the uplift is a magma intrusion where the magma is ‘forcing’ its way horizontally between the stratum in the crust and forming a thin sill at about 3 to 4 km (1.8 – 2.5 miles) depth. The magma intrusion causes a considerable amount of earthquakes in the area north of Grindavík. Their next meeting is scheduled for April 8.
A model of the ongoing magma intrusion shows that fissures can open in the uppermost layer of the crust, at 1 – 2 km (0.62 – 1.24 miles), because of the tensional stress induced by the uplift itself. This change in the crustal stress might lead to more earthquakes related to injection at boreholes, which was not common before in the area, IMO said.
The work procedure for the injections will be reviewed in collaboration with HS-Orka and discussion will be taken on how is the best way to monitor the earthquakes likely due to these changes, it added.
On Saturday, March 28, an earthquake swarm occurred in Eldey, indicating that the activity is affecting all volcanic systems in the peninsula and the ridge, eg. from Eldey all the way to Krýsuvík.
The interpretation of these events is still uncertain, but there are indications that a common underlying process is the cause of the activation of such a widespread area in such a short timeframe.
However, the Reykjanes peninsula and the Reykjanes ridge are composed of plate boundaries. Also, the Eldey, Reykjanes, Svartsengi and Krýsuvík volcanic systems lie right across the boundaries.
Because of the activity ongoing in the area, the SAB believes that it is extremely important to monitor and investigate the ongoing activity in the Reykjanes peninsula as a whole, and compare this activity with older events in the area to try to decipher the reasons and identify possible developments.
In addition, GPS measurements, as well as detailed analysis and model calculations of the available data, now give evidence of a new magma deposit west of the Reykjanes peninsula under Rauðhólar and Sýrfell.
“The data we have processed indicates that the magma insertion has taken place from mid-February until the first week of March. This picture was better explained when we got data from the University’s GPS measurements, which are not directly related to our monitoring system — meaning that we did not detect this until now,” says Kristín Jónsdóttir, Group Director of Nature Conservation at the Icelandic Meteorological Office.
A model places the magma insert at a depth of about 8 – 13 km (5 – 8 miles), which is probably at the bottom of the Earth’s crust at considerably more depth than the two magma deposits at Thorbjörn.
“This magma deposit under Sýrfell is the third magma deposit we report on the Reykjanes peninsula since the turn of the year. The presence of this magma insert supports the Resolution of the Swedish Civil Defense Council that it is necessary to look at the activity in the Reykjanes peninsula comprehensively, and not only from the local activity around Svartsengi and Reykjanes,” Kristín said.
(Night Watchman Note: What will happen when millions of Christians suddenly ‘disappear’ in the ‘twinkling of an eye”??? Those who may be first-responders, doctors, nurses, support staff, policemen, firefighters, homeless volunteers, those in the red cross or other emergency aid and relief organizations, in the national guard or military, pharmacies, grocery stores, etc. You get the picture.)
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)
A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
