Global SITREP B8-16: The 12-year Run Up to the Seventh Bowl

Earthquakes since 1899 by magnitude
29 April 2016:  If you would like to follow global and even local seismic events in near real-time, simply click on, then add this linked web page URL into your browser's favorites list.  For example, I have this page URL saved in my favorites folder named "MT24 Signs." Here's the webpage: Seismic Monitor.  

17 April 2016: In His discourse on the Mount of Olives, the Lord Jesus Christ spoke of five primary signs for us to watch for as indications of His soon coming and the end of the current age of mankind. Jesus warned against the man-made deception ("let no man deceive you") of false messiahs; wars and rumors of wars, famines, biological plagues and earthquakes all occurring in various places. All of these signs (occurring together or concurrently), He said, are the beginning of [Greek: ōdin thanatos] dire calamities, the beginning of sorrows, which occur as the travail of a woman in the throes of childbirth. This specific Greek phrase ōdin thanatos is repeated with what I believe is a little more clarity in Acts 2:24 where it is translated as "the pains of death."

In this SITREP the focus will be on the fifth of the signs, earthquakes, because the greatest earthquake in the history of this planet is not that far away.

This very morning an earthquake magnitude 7.8 struck the nation of Ecuador in South America. A day earlier a quake magnitude 7.0 struck southern Japan in the same province where a day earlier a magnitude 6.7 quake occurred. In all, there have been a series of 9 earthquakes in this same province this week.  In total around the world there have been 16 quakes of magnitude 6.5 to 7.9 since January 3, 2016. A significant fact is that 8 of these 16 quakes have occurred in the first two weeks of April 2016. Another significant item to highlight is that the calculated seismic risk for earthquakes to occur in these particular regions had been rated as low to very low (18% to 4% chance). 

The vast majority of these quakes are occurring all along the Pacific Rim. Individual quakes are highlighted by minuscule electric green dots in the image above illustrating global geologic activity over the past 115 years. 115 years of Jesus' prophecy coming to fulfillment in one snap-shot illustration. The vast major of those dots have been added to the map within the past 65 years.

Some more facts. In the past ten years alone there have been 408 earthquakes of magnitude 6.5 to 9.0 to occur. In 2015 there were 61 quakes within this magnitude range; 49 in 2014; 57 in 2013; 42 in 2012 and 52 in 2011. 2011 is the year which saw a rather dramatic increase in earthquakes and which as you can see by these numbers has remained constant, plus or minus 10 quakes per year in the 6.5 to 9.0 range. 2016 is thus far on a pace to eclipse the 61 quakes of 2015.

All of this data is what has seismologists on high alert for major earthquakes to strike in Chile, Ecuador, Indonesia and Japan in the next 48 hours. The seismologists algorithm-based alert into the future falls exquisitely in line with Jesus' Olivet prophecy and the passage in Revelation 16:20 regarding the disappearance of entire islands (the Pacific Ocean especially!) and mountain ranges all over planet earth being flattened. I believe planet earth is in the 12-year run-up (or countdown if you prefer) to the literal fulfillment of Revelation 16:17-21.

99% of the seismologists algorithms forecast such tectonic devastation from 2016 through 2019, and in slightly longer range to 2028. However, the phrase "slightly longer range" is in reality from this moment only 12 years away, and anything can and most likely will happen between now and then. Put another way, 2028 is closer to the present world's future than 2003 is to its recent past.

There is no surer or explicit validation of Bible prophecy than its precise literal fulfillment before our eyes in this final generation.  Jesus said, "Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place." (Matthew 24:34)  Got Jesus in your heart?


hartdawg said...

.....and yet so many "christians" who have a contempt for prophecy say "this is nothing new, earthquakes have always come in spurts" I had a similar conversation with someone the other day. The very last question you asked "got Jesus in your heart?" Needs to be asked of them! So let's see, mockers? Check, earthquakes? Check, israel standing alone? Check. Need I go on?
Just one more thought, and correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems 2028 is the latest projection. If Jesus is to return WITHIN a generation of israels rebirth, then all this could come about BEFORE 2028. What do you think?

Sean Osborne said...

I agree and believe all of this will occur prior to 2028. But for the time being, I'll sit back and let anyone who wants to do some exegesis on when during the 70th Week Revelation 16:17-21 will come to its fulfillment. The clues are abundant in the text.

VP ORD said...

@hartdawg.....hello brother, just so I can get a clearer understanding...are you saying that the Bride could still be here up to 2028?


LD said...


The Lord put this very topic on my heart on Saturday and I was burdened with the shaking that is going on not only in the "natural" realm, but also in the political realm, the economy and yes, (to Hartdawg's very point) within the church itself. Shakings are going on...and now more frequently, and Jesus is clearly trying to get the attention of His people (and will soon do just that). For the church to deny this is pure foolishness, but the Bible clearly states

" For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.    For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

Jesus warned us to keep watch...and now things are happening just as He warned. I am especially burdened that His very own church denies prophecy...and accounts these happenings to pure chance. I guess that is why the way is narrow. Even people who "attend" church weekly will be wondering what hit them in the very near future. His chilling words "Get away from me you workers of iniquity" are haunting but the picture is becoming very clear.

Sean, I thank you for the blessings of your blog, and the work you do. I truly enjoy the comments from brothers and sisters in Christ, and it an integral part of my growing in the Lord as your site just brings the pages of the Bible to life in real time.

Thank you for all you do. You are a blessing to many.


hartdawg said...

No,I'm saying that the 2nd coming and 7th bowl could occur BEFORE 2028,meaning the Bride would be outta here BEFORE 2021!

Scipio said...

LD - agree! VP- just a quick reply to say that 2028 is the end of the Trib (or a yr before), AND Israel has to initiate Ps 83 and Jer 49 prior to EZ 38, looks like to me that the Bride has a couple years, if that, here on this earth.

Sean, In Rev 16:12-14, the armies of the east and of the world gather for the final battle of Daniel's 70th week. Meeting place--Tel-Megiddo.
The seventh angel pours his bowl into the air, judgement I presume against the principalities and powers and spirits that have ruled the air.
On earth chaos.
Jesus, our Lord, is about to answer the prayers of a multitude of saints that His kingdom come and His will be done on the earth.
Jesus came humbly the first time and they mocked him with their words and put on him a purple robe, spit on him, beat him, placed a crown of thorns on His head and nailed him to a cross. NOT THIS TIME! He comes with a double-edged sword and treads the winepress alone and takes back what is rightfully his.
Even so, Come O Lord.

Sean Osborne said...

Quick note to explain to those reading these comments and who do not yet know how the year 2028 was extrapolated from Scripture as being the final year of the 70th week of years; a/k/a the year of Jesus' Second Coming.

This is all based upon Psalm 90:10 which gives the duration of a generation in terms of its total years. 70 years is a normal generation or lifetime; 80 years is a generation or lifetime of strength.

In Matthew 34:24 Jesus spoke of the final generation in which all of His prophecy about the 70th Week would come to pass before that generation could pass away.

The year 1948 was the year the prophecy of Isaiah 66:8 was fulfilled when Israel was re-born as a nation in a single day.

1948 + 70 = 2018. 2018 leaves not enough time for all of the unfulfilled pre-70th Week prophecy to come to fulfillment, plus the full 7 years of the 70th week to occur.

1948 + 80 = 2028. 2028, meaning the final full generation is a generation of strength, provides enough time for all of the pre-70th Week prophetic fulfillments plus the 7 years of the 70th Week to occur.

This is the reasoning behind my belief that there are less than 5 years remains before the start of the 70th Week. Israel's 70th year of existence will occur in 2018, and massive prophetic fulfillments are to be expected. Somewhere in all of this the Harpazo will occur.

No man knows the day or the hour, but we most certainly are aware of the season in which we live.

You could not imagine the awe you just caused me to have at your comment about the 70thweek and how close all of us are to it! Never have I even cconsidered this fact and yet you laid it bare right there in front of me! I would love to have the Lord God put a "Rush Job". Om my total healing and restore what the 'devoured' has robbed me of so I could tell you "MY STORY" that began very early on December 11, 2015 about 5:25 A.M. One day I will get to share and I promise it will be Mesus Christ that gets all of the praise! I am now 81 strong Years old but on that other day I was 80 and in a very weakened state and God stepped in and stayed the hand of the devoured of all mankind and He did it so all could know that HE is God and there is none other!

But more importantly, we have a vast amount of work to do for the Kingdom of God and no FEAR is the byword! Thank you for taking the time and effort to bring all of us into awareness and understanding!

Shalom Brrother,

Scipio said...

Great Granny, good to see you here! THX Sean for your succinct summary. LD mentioned it and I am kind of surprised too, at the non-mention of this awesome prophecy in the churches. Perhaps the Hal Lindsey misconstruing of the generation length and the resultant trepidation is the reason. Also I have about 9 or 10 Christian friends and they are wonderful in many respects, knowledgeable too - but aloof!

hartdawg said...

Sean, if I may, I'd like to take it a step further. Not only can we know the season, but unless I'm misreading it, I believe that we are COMMANDED to know the seasons.

LD said...

Great Granny....

For some reason you were on my heart yesterday...and I prayed for you (and will continue too). Great to read your wisdom again.


I agree that so many in the church...Bible believing Christians just want to look the other way when things prophetic are mentioned. Then they fall into the camp of "things happen" just like the world view. Jesus told us that "these things must happen"...and He has given us a gift to see and search these learn about them. When the judgement hits this nation, it will begin at the house of God. I am fully believing that our ministry (those of us who study and learn about prophesy) will be put into action to minister to our very own Christian brothers and sisters who have no clue of the very things Jesus put out there for those who have ears....


Thank you for this certainly has impacted me, and a whole lot more people.

Hartdawg, Scipio, LD and everyone,

My comments get messed up by my fingers finding the little keyboard where I don't intend it to go but my joy in getting some return to my ability to rejoin the group of Believers is exhilarating, to say the least! Our Heavenly Father is beyond all previous descriptions and assessments! If I could, I would be jumping for joy and be in a fit of high praise because WE are all heading towards a very Glorious Reunion that will shake the whole creation! In other words, it is great jusf being here again in mind, body and Holy Spirit enabled!

We are to be very much knowledgable of The Time and the Seasons just like Jesus said prior to his warning to the Jews and the Cross. We do know in part right now but I truly believe the blinders are being removed from our eyes everyday. We have so much more available to study God's Word in Spirit and in Truth! Sean and his deep understanding and dedicatkation are a very rich blessing and none of us have an excuse for not studying to stay alert and Awake!

God is so god and we do not even know the half of it yet!


Sean Osborne said...


I agree completely, the bride of Christ was commanded by Christ to know the seasons. I was just asserting that all of us here are already well aware what season it is; we're all looking expectantly for signs of His coming in the Harpazo.

This is no different than those who were aware of His coming the first time, that it was time according to the schedule set by God.

Did I say schedule? Yes, I did say schedule, and that is precisely what Paul tells us in Galatians 4:4

"But when the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law."

Jesus time to come the first time was calculated. So is His coming for His bride. both times are expressly according to God.

In fact, both events had/have been expressly foretold in prophetic text. The first by the angel Gabriel in the prophecy of the 'seventy seven' per Daniel 9:24-27, and the second by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse and by Paul in his letters to the churches, and in the God-breathed vision provided to John the Revelator, Revelation 4.

How any member of the bride of Christ will be caught unawares given what has been unambiguously told to us; what has been COMMANDED of us with respect to being aware, is virtually inexcusable. Such are those who lack oil in their lamps, and to whom the door will be shut and will be told by Him, "I do not know you."

hartdawg said...

Hey sean, something that I've been noticing alot as of late, and it's increasing more and more especially from post tribbers but not just them is this, people are downplaying the severity of the 70th week. Have you noticed or seen that too? The 70th week is going to be the worst time period in human history, but people don't realize how severe it's going to be, people are downplaying it.

Sean Osborne said...


Yes, I have noticed that. I believe it is due to closed minds and hardened hearts. It comes from those people who do not have the Holy Spirit resident within them. They have no oil in their lamps, so to speak.

Since when would one-third of Almighty God (the Holy Spirit) deny what the other two-thirds (Father and Son) have spoken to the prophets, or have given to John on Patmos in the Revelation of Jesus Christ? Simple answer... this would never and can never happen. Ergo, these people are devoid of the Holy Spirit; they deny God. They have a public form of godliness, but lack the power thereof.
