Sinkholes and Landslides
Prophecy - Signs
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
J.L. Robb

According to the Good Book the land is going to give way sometime in the future, big time. No one knows exactly, or even inexactly, when this will occur; but it is predicted. Like all Bible predictions, we can assume these will come true when the timing is right.

Mountains are supposed to collapse and disappear, as well as islands.  An earthquake that is predicted to come is described as the worst earthquake since the beginning of Earth, and the worst there ever will be.  I guess that’s a small silver lining in an otherwise dismal cloud, knowing there will never be another like it.

What goes up, must come down.  When I watch some of the news out of the Mid East, Palestinian celebrations often include shooting all their guns in the air.  Numerous deaths and injuries after each celebration prove the saying to be true.

Gravity is a strange thing, never seen or felt but we know it exists or we would float in the air.  Of course we have air pressure that holds us down to the Earth, but it would float off too if there was no gravity.  Isaac Newton knew gravity existed and proved the strangeness of the invisible force.  Newton discovered the constant nature of gravity when he dropped two objects, one heavy and one light-as-a-feather, from a high tower.  Thinking the heavier object would hit first, Newton is said to have been shocked when both objects hit at the same time.  You can try this for yourself with a wadded up piece of paper and a baseball.

Sink Hole in a fieldThere have been a lot of sinkholes in the news lately, some caused by man and some caused by Mother Nature and her good friend, gravity.  Sometimes I think the devil himself must think his roof is falling.  I’ve found lately that many people don’t think the devil even exists, much less lives down in the Earth.  That has to be one of the greatest sales pitches in the world when that slick Willy convinced people that he was fictional.  There are several places in the Bible that mentions those who live in the Earth and travel through the Earth.  Here is one example from Revelation:

"And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it." (Revelation 5:2,3)  NIV (italics added)

One night a few weeks ago, a Seffner, Florida man was in his bedroom sleeping whenGuatelmala Sink Hole the house shook.  The 37 year old man’s brother ran to the bedroom and nearly fell in the sinkhole that had formed under his brother’s room.  The man’s bed fell into the hole along with all his bedroom furniture.  He has never been found, nor has the bedroom.

A few weeks later, two more sinkholes opened in the same town.  Florida has a plethora of sinkholes because of all the limestone geology.  Caverns that were once filled with water are now collapsing.

According the U.S. Geological Survey,

"A sinkhole is an area of ground that has no natural external surface drainage--when it rains, all of the water stays inside the sinkhole and typically drains into the subsurface. Sinkholes can vary from a few feet to hundreds of acres and from less than 1 to more than 100 feet deep. Some are shaped like shallow bowls or saucers whereas others have vertical walls; some hold water and form natural ponds. Typically, sinkholes form so slowly that little change is noticeable, but they can form suddenly when a collapse occurs. Such a collapse can have a dramatic effect if it occurs in an urban setting."

Yep, I would say the last sentence is an understatement.  Gravity.

But sinkholes and sinking houses aren’t just a Florida phenomenon.  Most damaging sinkholes in the United States tend to occur in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania.

It seems the Earth has always suffered large collapses, and often the losses were much greater than a single home.

An underwater archaeological survey in the Mediterranean a few miles off the coat of Egypt  discovered the remains of two 2,500-year-old cities. Though the 6th century B.C. cities have not been positively identified, scholars believe they were the cities of Menouthis and Herakleion, which served as trading hubs in the Late Dynastic Period.  Divers have located well-preserved remains of houses and temples dedicated to the gods Isis, Serapis, and Osiris located on the sea floor less than 30-feet under water.  The two cities were known by ancient authors.

According to archeological sources,

“Strabo, who visited Egypt in 26 B.C., described the geographic location of the cities and their opulent way of life. Herodotus, writing four centuries earlier, described the cities of the Nile Delta as looking like the islands of the Aegean set amid a marsh. The Greek historian specifically mentions Herakleion and its temple dedicated to Herakles. Herakleion had served as Egypt's principal commercial port until the founding of Alexandria by Alexander the Great in 331 B.C.”

Off the shores of Alexandria, the city of Alexander the Great, ruins of the royal quarters of Cleopatra have been found.  Historians believe this site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves more than 1,600 years ago.  Other discoveries include two statues, one a priest of the goddess Isis and the other a sphinx whose face is said to represent Cleopatra's father, King Ptolemy XII.  

In the waters of Japan, ruins have been found that remain a mystery.  Many of the underwater features do not look natural, such as a large, semi-circular structure that looks like a bench.  There is a large sculpted head with hair and a head dress carved into it.  These structures are 60 to 100 feet below the surface.  

In the Gulf of Cambay off the coast of India lie the remains of a huge lost city that could force a radical review and reconsideration of the current concept of ancient human history.  The archeological remains, about 120 feet underwater, could be over 9,000 years old.  The huge city is five miles long and two miles wide and is believed to predate the ancient Harappan civilization, about 2,000 B.C.

Author and film-maker Graham Hancock told BBC News Online that the evidence was compelling:

"The [oceanographers] found that they were dealing with two large blocks of apparently man-made structures. Cities on this scale are not known in the archaeological record until roughly 4,500 years ago when the first big cities begin to appear in Mesopotamia.

Nothing else on the scale of the underwater cities of Cambay is known. The first cities of the historical period are as far away from these cities as we are today from the pyramids of Egypt," he said.

Russia has suffered a recent increase in sinkholes, with at least one fatality as roadways open and swallow cars in a flash.  The same thing happened in Chicago a couple of weeks ago, and sinkholes are nothing new to Bowling Green, Kentucky.

I’m not sure how God will make mountains collapse and islands disappear, but we certainly have plenty of proof that it can happen.  Even a helmet wouldn’t help with a sinkhole.
