Rugaciune pentru Italia – Sunt de aşteptat alte cutremure de magnitudine mare

Apel la rugaciune pentru Italia dupa cutremurul de azi si mai ales pentru motivul ca seismologii se asteapta la alte cutremure mari. Dumnezeu sa pazeasca copiii Sai de orice rau!

Ziar Piatra Neamt – Un cutremur devastator s-a produs în Italia în jurul orei locale 7.40 minute, 8.40 ora României. Seismul, cu o magnitudine estimată de 7,1 pe Richter, s-a produs la 134 km de Roma, în zona Ascoli, la o adâncime de 10 km. S-a produs la ora locală 7.40 minute, 8.40 ora României.
Nu se cunoaște încă numărul victimelor și nici nu sunt estimări. Vom reveni cu detalii.

Locuitori din Tolentino (regiunea Marche) au declarat ca s-a prabusit o biserica in care se aflau circa 30 de credinciosi care asistau la slujba de duminica. Imaginile televiziunilor italiene au arătat mai multe clădiri dărâmate în Norcia.

Precizăm faptul că cetățenii români afectaţi pot solicita asistenţă consulară la următoarele numere de telefon ale Ambasadei României în Italia (0039) 06 835 233 58, (0039) 06 835 233 56,  (0039) 06 835 233 52;  (0039) 06 835 233 44 apelurile fiind redirecționate către Centrul de Contact și Suport al Cetăţenilor Români din Străinătate (CCSCRS) şi preluate de către operatorii Call Center în regim de permanență sau pe numărul de urgenţă al misiunii diplomatice (0039) 345.147.39.35.

Ambasada României la Roma continuă monitorizarea situației, fiind pregătită să acorde asistenţă consulară, în caz de necesitate.

Potrivit Adevarul : Sunt de aşteptat alte cutremure de magnitudine mare, potrivit unui seismolog francez   Cutremurul care a lovit duminică centrul Italiei nu este o replică, ci este vorba de seisme care se declanşează reciproc, iar acest fenomen va continua în săptămânile şi lunile următoare, a declarat seismologul francez Pascal Bernard.

Potrivit acestui expert de la Institutul de fizică a Pământului de la Paris, replicile sunt de magnitudine mai mică decât de obicei. În cazul cutremurului de duminică, este vorba de ruperea unui segment de falie vecin cu cel care a declanşat mişcările de acum câteva zile în această regiune şi, de asemenea, cu cel care a provocat seismul din august. Transmiterea tensiunii, a forţelor tectonice continuă de la un segment la altul.   În Italia plăcile tectonice sunt foarte segmentate, astfel încât acestea se rup bucată cu bucată, în loc de o rupere pe o arie mai mare şi, din acest motiv, ne putem aştepta ca zguduirile să continue în săptămânile viitoare, cu magnitudini de 5,5 sau 6, a mai spus expertul într-un interviu pentru AFP.

Discovery: Researchers believe earthquake reveals day of Jesus’ crucifixion

By Jennifer Viegas (via) MSNBC

Geologists say Jesus, as described in the New Testament, was most likely crucified on Friday, April 3, in the year 33.

The latest investigation, reported in International Geology Review, focused on earthquake activity at the Dead Sea, located 13 miles from Jerusalem. The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 27, mentions that an earthquake coincided with the crucifixion:

“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open.”

To analyze earthquake activity in the region, geologist Jefferson Williams of Supersonic Geophysical and colleagues Markus Schwab and Achim Brauer of the German Research Center for Geosciences studied three cores from the beach of the Ein Gedi Spa adjacent to the Dead Sea.

Varves, which are annual layers of deposition in the sediments, reveal that at least two major earthquakes affected the core: a widespread earthquake in 31 B.C. and a seismic event that happened sometime between the years 26 and 36.

The latter period occurred during “the years when Pontius Pilate was procurator of Judea and when the earthquake of the Gospel of Matthew is historically constrained,” Williams said.

„The day and date of the crucifixion (Good Friday) are known with a fair degree of precision,” he said. But the year has been in question.

In terms of textual clues to the date of the crucifixion, Williams quoted a Nature paper authored by Colin Humphreys and Graeme Waddington. Williams summarized their work as follows:

  • All four gospels and Tacitus in Annals (XV, 44) agree that the crucifixion occurred when Pontius Pilate was procurator of Judea from A.D. 26 to 36.
  • All four gospels say the crucifixion occurred on a Friday.
  • All four gospels agree that Jesus died a few hours before the beginning of the Jewish Sabbath (nightfall on a Friday).
  • The synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) indicate that Jesus died before nightfall on the 14th day of Nisan, right before the start of the Passover meal.
  • John’s gospel differs from the synoptics, apparently indicating that Jesus died before nightfall on the 15th day of Nisan.

When data about the Jewish calendar and astronomical calculations are factored in, a handful of possible dates result, with Friday, April 3, 33, being the best match, according to the researchers.

Williams is studying yet another possible natural happening associated with the crucifixion — darkness.

Three of the four canonical gospels report darkness from noon to 3 p.m. after the crucifixion. Such darkness could have been caused by a duststorm, he believes.

Williams is investigating if there are dust storm deposits in the sediments coincident with the earthquake that took place in the Jerusalem region during the early first century.

Cutremurul din Japonia Martie 11,2011 – Pray for Japan

Psalm 46:1-3,7    God Is Our Fortress

To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A Song.

1God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.

7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

More than 900 people have now been reported dead as a result of Friday’s earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan. Japanese news media quoted government officials saying the death roll could rise to more than 1,300, most of them drowned. Over 10,000 people are currently missing. In the town of Minamisanriku, 9,500 people are unaccounted for, according to a local news agency. That figure is about half the population of the town. Overall, about 300,000 people have been evacuated from their homes. [NYT, CNN, Reuters]

More than 3,000 people have been rescued from „collapsed homes, muddy waters, and raging fires,” according to Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan. Rescuers will continue to search for missing people. [CNN, NYT]

This is an interesting video. Living in Chicago, a city with 1,117 high rise buildings (over 35 meters or 12 stories) and a population of 2,836,658, I watched videos like the one below with trepidation. Only the hand of God stayed the power of the earthquake from total catastrophy.

The location of the quake and its orientation means most of the West Coast of the United States was spared major impact, Bernard said.”If the earthquake had been somewhere else, the effects on the Washington coast could have been much worse.” (Seattle Times)

Pray for the people of Japan. May God be their source of comfort and may they be open and receptive to the saving Gospel of Christ.
