Welcome Friends,
Please note, this is not my business site. This is a my personal news blog.

This website was created in an effort to stay in touch with world news according to my first passion which is Biblical End Time Prophecy. I wanted a place to go where I could see both secular news and Bible teachings ...hand in hand!  I never thought I would make this site public, until some very close friends began to tell me this was a great resource for them and they were very thankful I had put this all together for them to access. This site blesses me and I hope it blesses you too. This is the motivation behind "The 2012 Project"  ... I suppose it's now, "The 2014 Project"!.

Also, if you are interested in connecting with me professionally, please click on my Facebook picture and let's become "friends".  Please feel free to contact me, if you have questions concerning the companies I am aligned with. You may also go directly to my Facebook profile site to LEARN MORE about me. You can also "Like" my  FB Business PAGE for the latest updates concerning my business ventures.

Please know I enjoy meeting new people from around the world who have the same business interests and love for Jesus Christ as I do. I wish you every success in life and love.

  • My life quote: "Do all you can do in this life, that is right, according to God's word, and then trust that God will do for you what you can not do for yourself. ...Trust in God! He loves you and He cares!"    

Blessings to you!  :)

YES! There's a 100 percent chance of an earthquake today! Though millions of persons may never experience an earthquake, they are very common occurrences on this planet. So today -- somewhere -- an earthquake will occur.

It may be so light that only sensitive instruments will perceive its motion; it may shake houses, rattle windows, and displace small objects; or it may be sufficiently strong to cause property damage, death, and injury.

It is estimated that about 700 shocks each year have this capability when centered in a populated area. But fortunately, most of these potentially destructive earthquakes center in unpopulated areas far from civilization.

Since a major portion of the world's earthquakes each year center around the rim of the Pacific Ocean (Ring of Fire), referred to by seismologists as the circum-Pacific belt, this is the most probable location for today's earthquake. But it could hit any location, because no region is entirely free of earthquakes.

Stating that an earthquake is going to occur today is not really "predicting earthquakes". To date, they cannot be predicted. But anyone, on any day, could make this statement and it would be true. This is because several million earthquakes occur annually; thereby, thousands occur each day, although most are too small to be located. The problem, however, is in pinpointing the area where a strong shock will center and when it will occur.

Earthquake prediction is a future possibility, though. Just as the Weather Bureau now predicts hurricanes, tornadoes, and other severe storms, the NEIC may one day issue forecasts on earthquakes. Earthquake research was stepped up after the Alaska shock in 1964. Today, research is being conducted by the USGS and other federal and state agencies, as well as universities and private institutions. Earthquake prediction may some day become a reality, but only after much more is learned about the earthquake mechanism
