And now the latest in all the bizarre and rare phenomenon to plague our mother Earth, fireballs raining down from the Heavens. Possibly the remnants of Comet Ison, but a series of large fragmenting fireballs were witnessed all over the United States on Sunday, Jan. 12, and in addition to this, there were a bunch of strange grass fires from Kansas through OK to TX. In the link below the fireballs reported streaking all across the States from the East to the West Coast were followed up by a series of strange grass fires, most of which occurred in Oklahoma, and others in Texas and Kansas. It was 40 degrees and far from dry in Oklahoma, so it was said that there shouldn't have been any grass fires, let alone multiple fires. Could these fires have been started by the fragmenting fireballs? This is just another fireball sighting among many in recent times, like just this week in Northern Europe and another in Saudi Arabia.

These are NOAA radar images that captured the streaking fireballs.





Maybe it’s just me because of the all the “Watching” I’ve been doing with my research into the methane gas issue, but I believe that some of the events we are witnessing may be the signs of the end times predicted in the bible.

Regardless of the events I’ll discuss in this thread, I firmly believe that methane gas is still the underlying cause. I might point out that it remains a mystery why in 2007 methane gas started releasing all over the globe at the same time. In 1997, the methane gas levels had leveled off and stayed that way for 10 years. Throughout the Industrial Age, the gas levels in our atmosphere slowly increased until that year, but then leveled off. What happened to level it off, I don’t know, but in 2007, it began to rise again and it began rising at an alarming rate, much faster than ever before.

The most mysterious part of this was that the gas started releasing all over the globe instead of just the northern hemisphere where it should have started. According to an MIT study, the gas should begin in the northern hemisphere and then over the course of a year, spread out to the southern hemisphere, because most sources of methane are in the northern hemisphere, like rice paddies, livestock, wildfires, landfills, energy production, etc. MIT started out studying the phenomenon in 2008, but then the story went away and the mystery remains a mystery.

Levels of methane gas begin to increase again

And now to the signs from the Bible…I’ll start with Luke who recounts Jesus’ last days as he ministers. His followers asked him when they would know of his return and what would be the signs.

Luke 21:10 Then he said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.

21:11: “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven”

Jesus also tells them in the next verses that they (those who follow Jesus) will be persecuted. They will be delivered to synagogues and prisons. He even tells them they will be betrayed by parents, brothers, friends and relatives. And you will even be put to death.

Luke 21:17 “And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake.”

So, in the end times he says that followers of Christ will be persecuted, imprisoned, betrayed and even put to death. Is that not the times we are living in today. There is a major war being waged on Christianity today and it not only rages across the world but it is alive and well right here in America.

He also said in his final days of ministry that nations would rise up against nations. Despite the fact that nations have always fought wars, you can’t deny that it’s very volatile right now. You have an uprising in Iraq again, Afghanistan continues, and there is unrest in countless places right now, including Japan and China, Iran, Egypt, Syria’s civil war, several African nations and North Korea.

And then there are the earthquakes in various places. Anyone who is paying attention knows that there have been some strange earthquakes in places that shouldn’t be, including the 5.1 100 miles south of Key West, FL a couple of weeks ago. And what about the hundreds of fracking quakes all over the Midwest. There are plenty of others.

Famines…enough said. Pestilences…just watch the news. Do a Google search for disease outbreak or pandemic and you’ll see the numerous diseases right now. The animals are dying by the millions from outbreaks and even the food is now dying from disease. Check into the bananas in Costa Rica, there number one export product. 20% of the total banana count recently died off.

Jesus said there will be fearful sights and signs from the heavens. Then in versus 20 through 24 he talks about the gentiles and how they will trample Jerusalem. How pregnant and nursing women will be taken away.

Then, he talks of the signs in the heavens again in Luke 21:25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;

21:26 “Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken

21:27 “Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory”

I believe that we are also seeing these signs in the sun and the moon with all of the strange illusions of recent times, such as the triple sun witnessed over China and then over Chicago the other day.

Triple Sun over Chicago





And here is another triple sun sun dog from January 2 in San Diego.



And here is the thread from the Triple Sun over China

My wife and I also witnessed one of these, but not quite as pronounced, a few weeks ago on the beach in Sarasota FL.

People will say that this is common but I don’t buy it. These triple suns are not common at all. They may have occurred, but are not common. They are obviously caused by vapors in the atmosphere, which leads back to my gas theory about methane trapping the sun’s heat, which is in turn raising the moisture content in the atmosphere creating all of these strange signs in the sun and moon.

And then there are the signs in the stars. Here is a story just came out the other day about a NASA space telescope photo of a super nova. In the image you can see the “Hand of God.”

Now, everything I’ve posted so far can be attributed to the same old arguments about these signs and how every day we could see these things, but the “Hand of God” photo is very interesting to say the least. I found it even more interesting when I started reading more verses from the bible that may indicate signs of the end times and discovered this verse in Revelations in the first chapter when John first encounters the vision of Jesus, who at that time tells him to not be alarmed but to write about everything he is told and is about to see.

Revelations 1:16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

Notice how it says that Jesus held seven stars in His right hand. Now examine the “Hand of God” photo and you’ll see that there are seven stars in the reddish dust that are more pronounced than all the rest. Sure, there are others there, but not shining with a certain brightness. You can clearly see that there are seven stars that shine brighter than the others.

Jesus then tells John that the mystery of the seven stars is that they are seven angels of the seven churches.

Now back to Luke.

Luke 21:25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;

21:26 “Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken

21:27 “Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory”

There will be distress of nations in confusion and the sea and waves will be roaring. I think we are also seeing these signs right now as well. I mean, just take a look at the roaring waves that have been hitting many shores lately, but especially in the UK a couple of weeks ago that claimed human lives. And you could say many nations are in distress right now, including Israel and the United States. Our current political state in America is in complete disarray. Never before has it been so divided that it seems nobody can agree or get along on any issue. And, I might add that there are many folks on edge right now who believe there is going to be civil unrest very soon in this country, mostly due to the radical lawlessness of Obama, which includes his NSA spying, ambition to take away the guns and many other things we’ve witnessed in the past couple of years, such as urban military training exercises.

Israel is clearly in distress right now. They have been abandoned by the world community now that Obama is president of the United States. He claims we are still friends with Israel while making ridiculous deals with Iran. Let’s face it folks, Israel is alone right now and the Bible predicts that when this time is upon us, we will be in the end times.

As far as this chapter of Luke goes, I believe that’s where we are at. Next is the verse that says men’s hearts will fail them from fear and expectation of what’s to come. And then we will see Jesus return in a cloud with power and great glory. This time may be near, folks.
Then Luke continues with this Luke 21:28 “Now, when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.

Luke 21:29 Then he spoke to them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees

21:30 “When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near.

21:31 “So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.”

Jesus tells his followers that just like you know summer is near when the trees begin to bud, you’ll know the Kingdom of God is near when these signs begin to appear.

We’ve been witness to many signs lately, which include many of the events I write about in my methane threads, as well as civil unrest, wars, and the war on Christianity.

Even in the book of Joel it refers to these signs.

Joel 2:30 “And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood and fire and pillars of smoke.

2:31 “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
What’s interesting here is how you can go back to the “Hand of God” photo and see the blood, fire and pillars of smoke “in the heavens.”



Also, in the 31st verse, it says that the sun shall turn to darkness and the moon to blood. Although this could very easily be attributed to a major volcano that would block out the light of the sun and cause the moon to have a hazy red glow there is something else to note coming up this next year. There is a Blood Moon Tetrad. These are usually pretty common, but what is significant about this one is that it is only the 7th time that four blood moons fall on Jewish Feast days since the birth of Christ.

Blood Moon Tetrad

And in the middle of those blood moons, on March 30 of 2015 there will be a total solar eclipse that falls on another Jewish Feast day.

So, you have the sun turn to darkness and the blood moons.

Revelations Chapter 6 also refers to these signs.

6:12 I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

6:13 And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.

6:14 Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.

6:15 And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains.”

Now we here of a great earthquake prior to the sun turning dark and the moon turning to blood, so if this should come to pass prior to the solar eclipse in the middle of the blood moon tetrad, it may indicate another sign. The stars falling from the heavens could already be happening with the fireball sightings that we’ve been witness to. And, this phenomenon could actually increase as these signs become more apparent as in the verse it says they will fall like the leaves of a fig tree when shaken in a mighty wind. That would be pretty intense. This fireball phenomenon is already happening but on a minor scale. When the fireballs begin impacting the earth or causing atmospheric explosions that do damages on the surface, then we may definitely consider this a sign.

All I can make of the 14th verse is that there may be some serious volcanic eruptions that would displace islands and mountains, and cause the sky to recede like a scroll. I can’t even picture the sky receding like a scroll rolled up. Not sure what kind of natural phenomenon that would be.

I find the 15th verse rather fitting to this day and age as well. There have been plenty of times I’ve read about TPTB building underground bunkers. I read somewhere once that the Russians actually built a massive underground city back in the late 90’s. And I heard that the Chinese also have been building underground. This would fit the prophecy that men will hide in the caves and the rocks of the mountains.

As you all know there is plenty more to discuss if we wanted to dissect the Book of Revelations in which all seven seals are opened and then seven trumpets are sounded. I won’t get into all that now, I’ve rambled long enough. The trumpets are a whole other thread, especially since the strange sky sounds (trumpet sounds) heard world wide throughout 2011.

To sum up, you’ve seen my numerous threads about the methane gas and now I’ve thrown another twist in there for you to chew on. Although I do believe all these signs are coming to us via natural phenomenon on earth caused by the methane release, as I said in the beginning of this thread, it remains a mystery to why the gas started releasing as it did. Maybe, God himself pulled the trigger that ignited this methane and hydrogen sulfide storm to bring about the signs of the return.

I guess if His return is near, then one must ask oneself where you are at right now in life and which side you will be on. Are you worthy?

The only thing thats going to end is the current Paradigm. And i see enormous debt and waging aggressive war more as the catalyst for that, not space nebulas and grass fires.

Cool capture of the fireballs over the US, though.

I am a Christian and believe in end times prophecy, so I keep a watchful eye on current events for certain signs (as well as a general interest in staying informed), but I thought I would point out that the "triple suns" you've posted pictures of, are of a well known atmospheric phenomenon called "sun dogs". You can read about them a bit on wikipedia if you like. I enjoyed your thread none the less.

I'm not convinced that the Almighty would allow any child of his to come to earth whether as a first timer or a returner.
What with it being such a dangerous place these days I don't think that the Heavenly H & S advisors would allow that, too many floods, fires, pestilence and wars around. Then there's the likes of Fukushima, Chemtrails, Reality TV and a few problems with the Catholic Church.

I think, Jesus will remain where he is for the time being although if humanity screws up,Mother Nature and Earth much more than they have already perhaps The Almighty might just foreclose.

God, whosever God he/she or it may be must have a sense of humour, I will leave it to ATS members to work out the reason/s!


Oh, yes, and Beelzebub is running a chipshop in Blackpool England in partnership with Hitler and Elvis!

Thanks for the info on Sun Dogs. I am aware of what they are, but my point is that although they've been around I just feel, IMO of course, they are becoming much more common when you start seeing them on the nightly news because they are being spotted over major cities of the world. Also, the one I saw a few weeks ago in FL was my first. So, they are not too common as some would want us to believe.

To begin I wish to say I mean no disrespect to anyone or to their beliefs.

My entire life I have been told I should attend church, read the bible and fear the wrath of god.

I have attended church a few times, I've never read the bible and I don't fear god.

The god I have been told about seems nearly as bad as the devil I have been told about.

God, or his followers at least, always admonish me and threaten me for the things I may do or what I haven't done correctly.

Satan on the other hand seems to be an easy going do what you want sort of guy.

I just wonder is heaven going to have a lot of rules? Will I have to go to church and behave? Will I be allowed to gamble and drink a beer once in awhile?

Who / what should I fear?

Great thread, just smashing.

It seems like every generation believes they are living in the end times.

Though it seems to me that, depending on ones geographic locale, one could feasibly argue that Christians have always been persecuted, especially if said locale is... I dunno... say, the Middle East. Prophecy is more open to interpretation than abstract art.

The hand of God photo is just brilliant, however.

Thanks for the intriguing read, my friend. I sincerely hope you find what you are looking for.

I will leave you with this final tidbit:

10. The Earth quakes and the Heavens rattle; the beasts of the Earth flock together and the nations of men flock apart; volcanos usher up heat while elsewhere water becomes ice and melts; and then on other days it just rains.
11. Indeed do many things come to pass.

Nothing.

No one.

Live, love.

If "God" doesn't like that then he can't be too great a God to begin with.

As always Rez, you have put forth a great thread. And it makes one think.

I usually don't read threads that have Bible passages.......However, The whole sign thing, and Revelations, are quite interesting.

S&F for you. Thanks for the read.

This is kind of cool. As we were just speaking about Sun Dogs, I just went for a walk a block down to the gas station, back home here in Northern WI, and sure enough, there's a Sun Dog with the setting sun. I took a pic with the cell phone camera so it didn't turn out too good, but hopefully you can see it.

I think that you may be reading Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to far into natural phenomenon.

It's so silly to me how someone tries to incorporate a book written a few thousand years ago to relate to modern times.

I'm sure you also believe in a talking snake, living in a whale(big fish), and ... Jesus sake, need I go on?

If I need a good laugh, or some humor for the day, Rezlooper! I enjoy your threads.

I'd say your a believer in the Rapture, don't you? You do know that was made up after the Bible was written right?

The hand of god... what smut you guys allow to eat away at your IQ

Is that the Hand of God?
Answer: I do not know.

It is interesting that there is a blue star located right where the palm would meet the forearm--and, the blue mist streaming down from the blue star. The blue mist looks like blood flowing from the crucifixion wound (with the blue star being the hole where the nail was driven through).

Just a little too much natural phenomenon, that's all.

And you're a biblical scholar who knows when the bible was written?

You have your beliefs, I have mine.

And thanks for reading, I'm glad you're enjoying the threads anyway.

I think the sun dogs are going too far, but I think there are other things that do make me pretty jumpy where Revelation is concerned. I do agree that I feel like maybe things are winding up for a show in the not too distant future.

I always have a hard time attributing natural phenomena to it, though. I know we are told to watch for them, but most of what is going on is still within the realm of plausible. Geopolitically, I think there are some things to really watch out for, and when it comes to the tetrad and the accompanying solar eclipses ... well, those are more like the signs in the Heavens I'm thinking about.

That was insightful.

So what would we choose if the devil is fun and heaven is an eternal church service?

I personally think the world is more truly aware today than at any time in history, especially of dogma.

Thats why the response? Its okay to question.

ETA: Which you did too by the way, with this carefully thought out thread.
