      The BBC, Joel Rosenberg, and Amir Tsarfati are reporting a major blast —- probably, as my theory holds, they will blow up themselves just as God has the enemy turn on themselves in several events of invaders coming against Israel :prayer-hands:

      Many end time watchers just focus on the “business as usual – eating, drinking and marrying” in Noah’s day .. but Genesis 6:11  says “ The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.”  

      This has me wondering … are we going to see an uptick of destruction in various places like this before the rapture occurs? :unsure:

      Billy Crone is spot on with his books on AI, corruption, and advanced technology such as 5G.  Everything is in place for the AC to control human life. Billy and Ken Johnson have great discussions regarding the Alien (demon) theories.
      Ex. In Africa, whole communities are being bribed with giving them a “free” bank account if they are tagged with BG,s vaccine, RFID chip, etc. Sweden has “Chipping parties” and is already bragging about being greater than 90% paperless society, all buying scaling is done thru a hand chip.

      Do I expect more and greater disasters, Somewhat but not really, the Bride is not appointed for wrath, and I truly expect to be way gone before your next dental appointment. :mdrmdr: (I didn’t even make one for this year – TMI, I know, and I have to confess, I have great teeth and didn’t want to go thru the whole mask thingy).
      When you put it all together with what is occurring globally, it is so easy to see that we are truly at the door. :prayer-hands:

      I watched several of the reports and read through a couple of articles.  There was a fireworks container right next to a large cache of ammonium nitrate which was next to a fuel depot.   Ammonium nitrate + diesel fuel is what my friend in central america used to use to blow up stumps.   He said a 5lb coffee can packed with ammonium nitrate and soaked in diesel was a powerful bomb.    That’s what Timothy McVey used in Oklahoma City only on a larger scale.  So either this was set up in Beruit or its just a matter of sheer stupidity.     The videos are astounding.  You can see the fireworks going off.

        Thanks Todd, Amir said similar! There are two reports of a “missile” ?. Not validated! I have a silly theory that “stupid is as stupid does” and they “Syria and possibly Damascus” actually end up blowing themselves up with nukes per previous battles God “arranged” to care for Israel and take care of the enemies of God. :prayer-hands:
        Not convinced and praying hard we will miss the Damascus show! :prayer-hands:

      “Skeptical Skylar” here … I just learned its the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki explosion … coincidence? :unsure:

      Also if that was a fireworks factory … remember Hamas was putting fireworks on kites and inside balloons and launching them over from Gaza into Israel so they eventually explode and cause fires on their farmland, etc.

      Sorry about the innocent Lebanese people who were harmed and killed but you have to look at it this way too … whatever was stored in that storage building was eventually intended to  harm Israel and it all backfired …

      Just read this article. Is it true? Other than Scripture, is anything true anymore? I digress.

       

      Fair Use

      ———————————————————————————————————————

      Years before a devastating blast killed at least 100 people and injured more than 4,000 in Beirut Tuesday, a maritime analyst issued a public warning that a Russian “floating bomb” was languishing in the city’s docks.

      Maritime monitoring systems tracked the Rhosus into port in Beirut in September 2013. The ship, which was flagged in Moldova, listed its official cargo as “agricultural commodities.”

      The 2,750 metric ton cargo of ammonium nitrate would primarily be used for fertilizers or high power explosives. To put it in context, less than two metric tons of ammonium nitrate was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

      The Russian-owned cargo ship called into port in Beirut for reasons unknown, possibly after running into trouble at sea en route from Georgia to Mozambique. Beirut authorities blocked it from leaving and the dangerous cargo was offloaded and stored in Hanger 12 in the port a year later, according to the maritime monitoring website Fleetmon.

      Mikhail Voytenko, a Russian maritime analyst based in Thailand, warned in July 2014 that the ship, which he said was owned by a Russian operator, was effectively a “floating bomb.”

      Voytenko said the ship’s owners had abandoned the ship and its crew, and the Lebanese authorities had failed to protect the deadly cargo. “There are a lot of restrictions, regulations and rules to stick to when talking about storing explosives like ammonium but they just stored it in a warehouse and forgot about it,” he told The Daily Beast by phone from close to the Laem Chabang port in Thailand where he works.

      The Russian captain of the abandoned ship, Boris Prokoshev, and three Ukrainian crew members Valery Lupol, 3rd mechanic Andrey Golovyoshkin and boatswain Boris Musinchak, were made to stay on the ship with the deadly cargo after the other six crew members were released.

      They launched an appeal to get out, writing to Russian and Ukrainian journalists and to a group that supports seamen.

      “The shipowner abandoned the vessel. The cargo owner has ammonium nitrate in the hold,” Musinchak wrote in an email to both the Assol Seamen Aid Foundation and the diplomatic services of Ukraine. “It is an explosive substance… This is how we live for free on a powder keg for 10 months.”

      A Lebanese court then gave permission to unload the cargo, but not before asking the sailors to find a buyer for it themselves, which they claimed in the email they could not because all communication was stripped from the ship.

      On Wedensday, Prokoshev appeared on Russian television, insisting that even the lawyer who tried to free them was corrupt and not concerned about the fate of the ammonium nitrate. “For some reason, the consignee did not lift a finger to get his cargo out,” he said.

      The ship was owned and operated by Igor Grechushkin, a Russian, who now moved to Cyprus, according to the stranded sailors. Calls to Grechushkin were not immediately answered.

      As well as the public warning, Lebanese officials had repeatedly ignored warnings by port authorities about the ammonium nitrate that sparked the devastating explosion.

      Badri Daher, the current head of Lebanon’s customs authority, told reporters on the scene that the explosion was linked to the ammonium nitrate. Several people in the open source intelligence community later tweeted photos of loosely packed bags of white powder, assumed to be the substance. The Daily Beast has not verified the authenticity of the photos.

      On June 27, 2014, Shafik Merhi, then head of the Lebanese Customs Authority wrote to Lebanese officials under the heading “urgent matters,” asking for help to secure the explosives, according to a copy of the letter shared on Twitter by human rights activist Wadih Al Asmar.

      Merhi then reportedly sent five more letters, in December 5, 2014, May 6, 2015, May 20, 2016, October 13, 2016, and October 27, 2017, pleading for help, according to Al Jazeera, which reports one as saying, “In view of the serious danger of keeping these goods in the hangar in unsuitable climatic conditions, we reaffirm our request to please request the marine agency to re-export these goods immediately to preserve the safety of the port and those working in it, or to look into agreeing to sell this amount.”

      Another letter, this time written by Daher, the incoming head of Lebanese Customs Authority reiterated the warning of “the danger of leaving these goods in the place they are, and to those working there.”

      Lebanon’s new prime minister Hassan Diab, who came to the job in January 2020, alluded to the theory that the devastation could have been avoided, promising that “all those responsible for this catastrophe will pay a price.”

      President Donald Trump referred to the explosion as an attack, though local authorities say it was likely set off by a welder working nearby. “I’ve met with some of our great generals and they just seem to feel that . . . this was not some kind of a manufacturing explosion type of event,” Trump said at a White House briefing. “They seem to think it was an attack. It was a bomb of some kind.”

      On Wednesday, hundreds were still reported missing from the massive explosion, which generated seismic waves similar to a 3.3 magnitude earthquake.

      Beirut port, which is dubiously nicknamed the Cave of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves because of the alleged corruption tied to its management, has been under intense scrutiny in recent months after the October Revolution began last fall.

      Thanks for that!

      Things don’t add up. Perhaps this was a staged explosion to try to blame Israel. Even if they had nothing to do with it, all the Israeli haters will claim that they did it to try to provoke a war.

      Whatever the case, it’s people playing with other people’s lives. :(

      Interesting twist in scenarios with that article!  Anything is possible.  These last few years I’ve become “Flexible Fleur” when reading or listening to world news … so many shenanigans going on behind the scenes and its sometimes not clear with who the real players are that were involved.  It’s bad enough still trying to decode the clues on who killed President J.F. Kennedy let alone overseas Middle East news.

      Its comforting to know the Lord knows everything and He never slumbers nor sleeps and satan’s days are numbered.  I got a feeling It might be hard to explain to the 2nd generation and so forth that are born in the millennium kingdom how life on planet earth is now with the violence, crime and unfairness of criminals getting let out of prison early. They won’t be able to comprehend this stuff since all they have known is a perfect peaceful environment and no weeds to pull or insects destroying the crops or flowers.  Talk about easy living and gardening.   I wonder at first will we be warning them … be careful of that gator or don’t get to close to the grizzly bear … and they are giving us all a puzzled look?  Will it take time for us to get used to the animal kingdom at peace or not?  :unsure:

      So if you see the red plume of smoke — very suspicious!

      ammonium nitrate is an oxidizer used as a fertilizer, when it is placed in the ground, harmless — it can intensify combustion and allows other substances to ignite more readily, but is not itself very combustible; typically calcium carbonate is added to ammonium nitrate to create calcium ammonium nitrate, which is safer for storage.
      Yohanan I had read the Russian component and just went —- hmmm ? :unsure:

      This is Sean Osborne @ Eschatology Today take on the disaster in Beirut

      He doesn’t feel IDF is responsible for the disaster.  IDF was only doing direct hits in Syria.

      August 4th
      The IDF has confirmed.

      “In response to an attempted IED attack near the security fence between Syria & Israel last night, we just struck SAF targets in Syria including:

      Direct hit observation posts
      Direct hit intel collection systems
      Direct hit anti-aircraft artillery
      Direct hit command & control systems

      We hold Syria responsible.”

      Sean references … Joshua 13:1-7  … in the NIV it has the title … “Land still to be taken”  so I guess this still wasn’t fulfilled? :unsure:

      Land Still to Be Taken
      When Joshua had grown old, the Lord said to him, “You are now very old, and there are still very large areas of land to be taken over.

      “This is the land that remains: all the regions of the Philistines and Geshurites, from the Shihor River on the east of Egypt to the territory of Ekron on the north, all of it counted as Canaanite though held by the five Philistine rulers in Gaza, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gath and Ekron; the territory of the Avvites on the south; all the land of the Canaanites, from Arah of the Sidonians as far as Aphek and the border of the Amorites; the area of Byblos; and all Lebanon to the east, from Baal Gad below Mount Hermon to Lebo Hamath.

      As for all the inhabitants of the mountain regions from Lebanon to Misrephoth Maim, that is, all the Sidonians, I myself will drive them out before the Israelites. Be sure to allocate this land to Israel for an inheritance, as I have instructed you, and divide it as an inheritance among the nine tribes and half of the tribe of Manasseh.”
      ————————

      Sean’s comments continue …

      NOT fireworks! It was Iranian ordnance for Hezb and nitrate storage.

      US Embassy Beirut says reports of toxic gas in the area of today’s massive explosions in the port area. Locals advised to shelter indoors and wear masks.

      About the Beirut Port Disaster

      Hezbollah and the IRGC are under no illusions because they know they caused the explosion at Beirut port by their own negligence.

      They have been negligent in the handling and storage of volatile aluminum nitrate explosives and other mutitions (i.e. the reported fireworks) at this site for many years. Since 2014 at a minimum.

      Details:

      In 2018 the IDF made public their concerns about this site in releasing surveillance imagery with detailed analysis of the risks posed to the immediate civilian neighborhood, infrastructure, the port itself and Hariri Airport (source of the aircraft seen in some videos).

      Thereafter, Hassan Nasrallah released a video of himself ‘theorizing’ about a “nuclear like’ explosion occurring in Haifa port, just as the Beirut port explosion appeared to all who witnessed it yesterday. Ironic to say the least.

      Hezbollah and the IRGC are 100% responsible for the Beirut Port disaster. They know it. Israel knows it, and so does the U.S.A.

      2,750 metric tons.

      That’s more than 6 MILLON pounds.

      WHY were Iran and Hezbollah storing that much ammonium nitrate, for as long as they stored it, in one location with other munitions if not for terror operations?

      Yep, as mentioned, when this first blew up — no pun intended — my poor pea brain went —- hmmmmm that was a pretty big explosion with a lot of aftermath to be a fireworks warehouse and then a fertilizer storage from a Russian ship —- yeah right!

      Were thinking wrongly here.

      Who wants Beirut? Hamas, Hezbollah, Turkey, Iran.

      Who has a port in Beirut? Russia. Who wants a larger presence in Lebanon? Russia.

      I think this was a controlled explosion from either Russia, Iran or Turkey.

      Who has the capability to pull this off? Russia – Iran maybe but doubtful – Turkey maybe but doubtful.

        Could very well be … but I’m not so sure the bear is after the fuel in Lebanon since they rely heavily on imports for their energy from Russia, France, Italy and Kuwait … plus Russia just grabbed the oil fields in Libya.  However, perhaps the bear feels invincible and wants to grab some “other” investments under his paw …

        Lebanon is known for …

        The following export product groups represent the highest dollar value in Lebanese global shipments during 2019:

        Gems, precious metals: US$1.2 billion (40.8% of total exports)
        Arms, ammunition: $416.6 million (13.9%)
        Copper: $101.7 million (3.4%)

        Boulder,

        Not sure if you saw Geoffrey Grider’s latest article about Macron touring Beirut … the Lebanese people have rolled the red carpet out to him … calling him “Saviour and their only hope”. :wacko: I was curious if Macron has ties with Putin so I googled it … BINGO, here is just one of the many meetings.  So your theory of perhaps Putin has a big interest in rebuilding the seaport in Beirut could very well be in the cards. :good:  Looks like all stakes are on the table with  these 2 scheming gamblers needing each other as they team up and seek their own wheel of fortune and power.  Should be entertaining watching this play out and come crashing down.

      Just when you think you have this tragic event solved of who/why/how  … another youtube with more info surfaces with other theories. B-)

      With all that we learned so far …

      TR3B’s UFO space crafts … to a missile being fired … to ……?

      Just wondering your thoughts so far …

      – Was it aliens (demons) who are behind this attack “spiritual wickedness in high places”?  It would sure put a whole new spin on this verse …

      Eph 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

      – or was this attack from an earthly source that has an arsenal of high tech space craft toys with guided missiles?

      The video I posted above by Tim Henderson has been removed.  He is no longer allowed to post his news updates.  I wonder if it is because he said he had an intel source that had never  been wrong that said it was Israel.
