A Holey Mess
‘What fresh hell is this?’ we might ask. The sky is not falling… or at least it isn’t yet… but the earth is sinking.
Lost amongst the myriad of strange and disastrous events that we’ve seen take place on the planet lately is a phenomenon which hasn’t been receiving it’s due attention.
All over the world… giant, gaping holes are opening up in the earth… some having a confoundedly perfect, circular shape… great abysses which threaten to swallow up homes, roads and people.
This might sound a bit wild and made up… but the facts are, it’s happening… everywhere. When looking into all the locations that giant sink holes have taken place… I couldn’t even complete a list for the number of them that can be found, and the time it would take to round them all up… but here are some that I’ve complied:
In Guatemala, we have what looks like a man-made well shaft… but this hole opened up in the earth without anyone lifting a shovel…
Following the strange sinkhole in Guatemala, there began a plague of sinkholes across China… 35 massive, gaping holes from April until the middle of this month…
In Canada on the Trans-Canada Highway this hole opened up across two traffic lanes. It will require 50 trucks hauling gravel to the site to repair the road…
In the area of the Dead Sea… sinkholes are a serious problem… in fact so serious, people are afraid to walk or live in the area. Every day new sinkholes appear… some large enough to take down entire farmsteads…
Derry PA has a plague of sinkholes on their hands over which the residents are becoming very concerned… and placing blame on the township’s water system; the situation threatens to cause huge losses in property…
The very street which is nearest to where I am sitting has had a sinkhole problem which seemingly will not go away… the repair crew has been at the site three times in the last few weeks attempting to repair it so that it will not reoccur.
An acquaintance who lives in a township some 30 miles from where I am reports that a sinkhole is threatening to claim a large portion of her front yard.
Something has upset a fragile balance of energies within the earth, something which is causing an implosion of sorts of the earth’s surface in areas.
Remembering the Pandora’s box of repercussions which was opened when someone decided to drill into a deep oil and methane reserve in the Gulf Coast… a reserve which stretches far up into the North American continent, might we not be seeing the results of the ill-advised tampering with a delicate pressure system that was not meant to be tampered with?
Interestingly, I had earlier written on the Gulf Coast spill and the possible (and possibly prophetic) implications of it, pointing out that if this event implied a certain prophetic fulfillment in Revelation concerning the sea becoming blood, that a number of other prophecies would maybe have to precede it in order for it to qualify.
Now then… this would be one of those prophecies…
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.
And the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.
Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.
- Revelation 6:12-14
It occurs to me that with such a phenomenon of sinkholes opening up all over the globe… if any very massive earthquake were to take place in the near future, we might very well see mountains being swallowed up and islands sinking.
I make no claim to know that this is surely the case, but it seems far from impossible that there is a perfect storm of apocalyptic possibility convening over the wreckage which has been strewn in the Gulf of Mexico.
