Update: Japan Coast Hit With 5.0 Earthquake on Monday and Strong 5.2 Quake Moments ago

Japan Coast Hit With 5.0 Earthquake on Monday A 5.2 magnitude earthquake just hit near the east of coast of Honshu Japan on Tuesday, December 18,2012. The quake’s epicenter was not immediately determined

Japan has been hit with 35 earthquakes since December 9; and average of more than 4 per day. Last night, the island was hit by two quakes around the same magnitude.

One witness just remarked that the tremors lasted for 10 seconds.

Though many of them have been far enough out to sea, nevertheless, with so much shaking taking place, they bring the Islands that much closer to a larger land centered tremor and subsequent tsunami

After a two weeks of reticent silence the week of 5-11 December 2012 through today has exhibited an upturn in seismic activity around the world especially in the western Pacific, where all three of last week’s largest tremors occurred.

Overall the U.S. Geological Survey’s real-time earthquake map showed 120 recorded earthquakes of at least magnitude 4 (≥M4.0), of which 38 were ≥M5.0.
Japan and Indonesia: where the Week’s Largest Earthquakes took place.

Two areas particularly vulnerable to seismic activity made the earthquake headlines last week. Both Japan (where four plates jostle for position) and Indonesia (where several small pieces of crust are squeezed between larger plates) have particularly complex tectonic settings and are subject to large and conflicting stresses. This week the two countries are at it again.

The M7.3 which struck off the east coast of Japan raised memories of the devastating the 2011 earthquake which affected the same area, along the boundary between the Pacific and North American plates. Although it caused initial concern, the tremor, which was followed by several aftershocks of M4.0 or greater, did no damage and generated only a small tsunami of around a metre in height.

A look at the math reveals today’s 5.0 in Ishinomaki, Miyagi, Japan. The largest this week was the 5.2 in Namie, Fukushima, Japan. The 5.2 in Namie, was the largest in December and the strongest quake this year to hit the Island registered at 6.9 magnitude in Kushiro, Hokkaido, Japan.

The following list shows a number of large quakes 4.5 and higher that have shaken Japan’s region since December 9, 2012.

    “My peoples, hear the Word of The Living God!… All peoples of the earth, hear the voice of your maker: You have all entered in!… The Day is here, and you have entered in!… THE DAY OF THE LORD!

    Therefore, bow down heavily…

    Fall on your faces, and wail loudly!… CRY OUT!…

    Die to yourselves, and grab hold of The Holy One of Israel,
    And pray that you are counted worthy to escape!

    I lie not!… YOU HAVE ENTERED IN!

    Lo, did I not say to you that your knowledge was useless, and all your thoughts and imaginings were in vain?… For I am The Lord, and I do according to the counsel of My own will.
    For the scholars cry, “FALSE!”, and the Christians plot in vain against My messengers… And the people of Israel walk proudly, exalting themselves by their own knowledge, though they remain ignorant, for the Truth is still hidden from their eyes.
    My own sheep stumble! The whole world falls down and is broken!… When, O peoples, will you cast yourselves down? When will you be humbled? When will you forsake your knowledge and be free?!… I AM THE LORD! EVEN I AM HE! There is no knowledge apart from Me, and there can be no understanding, save it was given you by Mashiach… HE is your Master!

    Have you not felt these pangs, O earth?!
    Have you not recoiled in pain, O heavens?!
    Has not fear grabbed hold of you, O mighty nations?!…

    BLIND AND HARD PEOPLES, REPENT!

    I am calling all peoples to repent and to turn! My face is turned against you! My shoulders are set! My hand is stretched forward!… WOE! WOE! WOE! TO THOSE WHO DWELL UPON THE EARTH! The fire is kindled!… All flesh shall burn!
    I shall strike the animals, and they shall rage against you! I shall strike the waters, and they shall rise up against you! From bitterness to the raging of the seas, the waters shall oppress you!… Death shall increase quickly!
    I shall strike the mountains, and they shall speak and bring forth a great noise! They shall consume you and bury your cities! I shall strike the heavens, and it shall rain down fire and flooding rain, with a great multitude of hail!
    Lo, even the detestable birds who dwell there shall descend upon you, and torment you seven days! I shall strike the core of the earth, and it shall be shaken! And all manner of plagues shall ascend upon you from beneath!…

    For I am The Lord who reigns!…

    He who laid the foundations!…

    He who formed it and causes to be!…

    Behold, I am also He, who shall bring forth a swift end!”

    THE LORD GOD of Heaven and earth is speaking to THIS modern generation…
    THE TIME HAS COME!… History has an end…
