Is the New Madrid Fault about to Split the USA?

11/02/2011 21:26

People from St. Louis all across Missouri to the western edge of that state reported an unusual odor recently.  Mrs. Prophecy Dude did some research and even after dispelling all the anti-government conspiracy theories, there was sufficient information to make this interesting and worth sharing.  Here are a couple of articles describing the incident that took place 2011-10-26:

Then there is a lady in Oklahoma, originally from earthquake-riddled California, who believes she can predict them by certain characteristic odors she says are released before an earthquake strikes.

Some simple Internet research readily uncovers other historic testimonies purporting certain odors before earthquakes strike. Witnesses of the great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 reported odors days before the devastating quake hit. These are all odors similar to what is being described in Missouri.

If an earthquake is about to shake again the Mississippi River area along the New Madrid fault, it could be devastating. Here’s a brief description from the City New Madrid’s website:

The New Madrid earthquakes were the biggest earthquakes in American history. They occurred in the central Mississippi Valley, but were felt as far away as New York City, Boston, Montreal, and Washington D. C. President James Madison and his wife Dolly felt them in the White House. Church bells rang in Boston. From December 16, 1811 through March of 1812 there were over 2,000 earthquakes in the central Midwest, and between 6,000-10,000 earthquakes in the Bootheel of Missouri where New Madrid is located near the junction of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.

In the known history of the world, no other earthquakes have lasted so long or produced so much evidence of damage as the New Madrid earthquakes. Three of the earthquakes are on the list of America’s top earthquakes: the first one on December 16, 1811, a magnitude of 8.1 on the Richter scale; the second on January 23, 1812, at 7.8; and the third on February 7, 1812, at as much as 8.8 magnitude.

Even something remotely similar to the force of these earthquakes would incredibly devastate the region and affect the United States tremendously, especially with the current situation of a precarious economy. Think about how much more the area has developed since the first of these series of quakes struck exactly two centuries ago this coming December 16, 2011.  

More powerful earthquakes are striking the earth. In 2010, there were 120 quakes magnitude 6 or greater, but so far in 2011 the earth has experienced over 180 of them. What would it be like if the next New Madrid quake was greater than 8.8 in magnitude? Some predict the United States would virtually split in two. There are even map scenarios floating around with just such a picture.

There are serious scientific explanations for how such an event could occur, but there is a much more important cause and it relates directly to Israel. The immortal covenant promise of God to Abraham that describes how national relationships to Israel will be rewarded falls into place. Genesis 12:3 says that nations who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed. Essential in all of this is Jerusalem, the jewel of Israel. If the United States supports a divided Jerusalem, it may be that the result of that action could result in a divided United States—a literal division. The United States is conspicuously absent in end time prophecy. There are several scenarios that can place the United States incapable of reacting to an attack on Israel (Ezekiel 38 and 39), all have to do with the economy for sure, but a major upheaval such as another New Madrid earthquake could be one of those scenarios.

Such gloom and doom from Prophecy Dude! It’s Mrs. Prophecy Dude’s fault for taking Prophecy Dude down this trail! It’s all speculation. Don’t sell your season passes to Six Flags Over St. Louis yet.

Here is what you should do.  Draw close to God. He wants to know you in an intimate way and He will provide you supernatural experiences as you press in to know Him more and more. This will get you ready for anything that might come along.

Another end time sign is that the gospel will be preached and we believe related to that will be the last great awakening—a revival of tremendous proportions just before the harvest of the ages. For those who are whole-heartedly serving the Lord Jesus, His promises will be more real than ever. He will provide—even supernaturally. Remember, He’s not coming for a weak, emaciated church, but one that is without spot or wrinkle, standing strong in faith with victory. The greatest time for the church is just ahead of us.  Let’s do our best to boldly please the Lion of Judah before He calls us home!

The Israel connection

Too few people see the connection between the US and Israel. Mrs. P .D. is most certainly correct. If God is going to bless those who bless Israel, wouldn't the converse be true as well? Curse for curse? I'm going to keep tabs on your site. I'm interested in what else P.D. and Mrs. have to say. Be blessed...

"science" and mis-used maps

I heard an older lady in an airport talk about this and had to google it. The map sited is actually sea level rise, as you will notice all shaded areas are low elevation. The "science" presented is word of mouth, not directly from a seismologist or geologist. We will not see the New Madrid split the US, or CA fall into the ocean. These processes take time, and by time, millions of years.

Mrs. Prophecy Dude should be a regular contributor to Prophecy Dude. I find her insight on this topic very interesting and worth investigating. Thank you for sharing this and please thanks Mrs. Prophecy Dude for taking the time to dig through all that information.

P.S. I've shared this article with my friends and followers on twitter, facebook and G+. I'm also thinking of sharing it as an "article of interest" on my blog sites.
