Deep 6.7 magnitude earthquake hits Tonga trench in the Pacific

April 28, 2012TONGA, S. PACIFICA 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck the Tonga Trench at a depth of 129.4 km (80.4 miles). The earthquake was too deep to generate a tsunami. The epicenter of the undersea quake was 2266 km (1408 miles) NNE of Auckland, New Zealand. The Tonga Trench is a convergent plate boundary in the South Pacific. The trench lies at the northern end of the Kermadec-Tonga Subduction Zone, an active subduction zone where the Pacific Plate is being subducted below the Tonga Plate and the Indo-Australian Plate. The Tonga Trench extends north-northeast from the Kermadec Islands north of the North Island of New Zealand. The trench turns west north of the Tonga Plate and becomes a transform fault zone. The Tonga Trench is one of the most seismically and volcanically-active regions of the sea-floor on Earth. The planet’s crust is being violently devoured at a rate of more than 24 centimeters per year- the fastest of any region on the planet. –The Extinction Protocol

    all the fresh water from the ice caps melting(due to volcanoism, not over population) is a very heavy weight. will cause sinking. It is not that the oceans are Rising, the Land is Sinking.

    The Bible says Angels are restraining geological forces until prophecy is fulfilled

    “And after these things, I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the Earth, that the wind should not blow on the Earth, nor on the sea, nor any tree…till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” Revelation 7:1, 3

    I cover conditions in my book but this process is irreversible so once you pressurize something that’s already under tremendous heat and pressure; you’re only exascerbating a critical condition and sooner or later the 2nd law of thermodynamics takes over. The Bible also tells us that these forces are being held by the reins of God’s power until the gospel work is done and then they will be let go. So one day soon, for no discernible reason, even with no apparent signs of an escalation- all hell is going to break loose.

    “The fact that we seem to be contained within our own Solar System by dangerous conditions preventing interstellar travel out of it only adds credence to teh idea that Earth was a ‘tucked away’ little system that seems more like a placement than a pop-up.” -The Extinction Protocol, page 201

    Today is the first day in a long time that I have received in my email alerts like many of you do from the USGS reporting activity in The Tonga Trench it seems. I remember for over 2 years, it was not unusual to receive a daily email notification of a seismic event in that area. It appears that the silence could be over.
