Psalm 97:5 The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.
May 17, 2017: The Italian super volcano Campi Flegrei is flaring again. Reports out of Italy indicate risk of eruption is increasing. Campi Flegrei translates to “burning fields” in Italian. The caldera is estimated to be seven miles across. Campi Flegrei has not erupted since 1538.
The volcano is located approximately 11 miles southwest of Naples, Italy. 500,000 people live in the Naples area. The local area is one of the most densely populated areas in the world.
The area is across the bay from Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. History records the big eruption in 79 AD which resulted in the destruction of Pompeii and nearby villages.
Micah 1:4 And the mountains will melt under him, and the valleys will split open, like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.
Dr. Christopher Kilburn, Director of the UCL Hazard Centre, said: “By studying how the ground is cracking and moving at Campi Flegrei, we think it may be approaching a critical stage where further unrest will increase the possibility of an eruption, and it’s imperative that the authorities are prepared for this.
“We don’t know when or if this long-term unrest will lead to an eruption, but Campi Flegrei is following a trend we’ve seen when testing our model on other volcanoes, including Rabaul in Papua New Guinea, El Hierro in the Canary Islands, and Soufriere Hills on Montserrat in the Caribbean.”
He added: “We are getting closer to forecasting eruptions at volcanoes that have been quiet for generations by using detailed physical models to understand how the preceding unrest develops.”
Nahum 1:5 Mountains quake because of Him and the hills dissolve; indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, the world and all the inhabitants in it.
“In case of a big one, it could affect our chances to live in Europe, immediately killing hundreds of thousands if not millions. Ashes would cover the sun, possibly for days/months/years, affecting humanity, fauna, and flora in other continents.” -Dr. Luca De Siena, University of Aberdeen
Seismic activity is a hallmark of end time’s happenings. Earthquakes and volcano eruptions have dramatically risen in the past 2-4 years. This report is about one volcano in Italy. The Bible states volcanic activity will be global and affect all the people of the earth.
Isaiah 24:1 Behold, the LORD lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants.
