Although NASA covered up the strange photon cloud that’s now enveloped the solar system, the word has leaked out from some scientists.

And now, as the ominous cloud approaches it’s affecting the sun and planets in measurable ways.

Amazingly, as the bizarre energy invades our space, some of the world’s most famous pyramids are generating intense energy.

Several incredible incidents of visible power beams shooting skywards into space towards the region of the alien photonic cloud are well-documented.

At the same time, people around the world began hearing and recording frightening soundsnoises that seem as if the Earth itself is moaning and wailing.

All the phenomenaincluding measurements of the never-before-seen gigantic electrification of the turbulent sunseem to be centered on the deadly photonic cloud that some have called a ‘potential Doomsday space event.’

Pyramids beam energy to approaching space cloud

Ancient pyramids awake after centuries, millennia of slumber

Tourists screamed, others shot hasty videos with their camera phones as the Mayan pyramid rumbled. But no earthquake followed, instead a brilliant beam of light shot skyward into space as awed onlookers gasped, wondering what it meant.

But the Mayan pyramid of Kukulkan transmitting a raw column of incredible energy into space was just the latest pyramid to do so.

In 2009 and 2010 the Bosnian pyramid of the sun beamed a pencil thin ray of pure energy towards space.

Recently, the Chinese government began closely monitoring the Xianyang pyramid for signs of activity. Last year a team of scientists investigated the pyramid and believe it may have extraterrestrial origins. [Alien Base Found At Chinese Pyramid]

That amazing incident was followed by the vortex blastwitnessed and captured on filmshooting from the apex of the famous Aztec Pyramid of the Moon in Teotihuacan, Mexico.

Energy beams, vortexes, whirlwinds of intense forcewhat does it mean? Where is that energy being directed and why? What activated the mysterious power of these silent sentinels of stone quietly marking the passage of centuriesuntil something disturbed their slumber?

What brought them to life may be something more incredible than the actions of the pyramids: the arrival of an unknown force from the galactic void that’s now surrounded much of the solar system.

The deadly photon belt

NASA and the European Space Agency have been warning the world for two years about the approaching catastrophes that may unfold during 2012 to 2013. Few listened.

Astrophysicist Dr. Alexey Dmitriev

Now the eminent astrophysicist, Alexey Demetriev [“PLANETOPHYSICAL STATE OF THE EARTH AND LIFE“] claims what is happening is worse—much worse—than NASA and the ESA’s warnings. [Claim: NASA Hiding Approaching Doomsday Space Event]

Our entire solar system has entered an immense, potentially deadly, interstellar energy cloud.

Pyramids reacting to unknown, alien cloud

Dr. Demetriev has revealed that both Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes reported the entire solar system is at risk. Worse, Merav Opher, a NASA Heliophysics Guest Investigator from George Mason University claims this interstellar energy cloud is unstable and turbulent.

The Russian scientist further asserts this photonic cloud of energy is exciting the atmospheres of the planets and especially our sun. As this interstellar energy cloud continues to excite and interact with the sun, it causes the sun to become more active, resulting in greater output and instability.

The magnetic flux, interaction with the solar magnetosphere and Earth’s geomagnetic fields, can cause core mutations, anomalous field vortices, and polar magnetic permutations creating superstorms, wild weather swings, andmost amazing of allatmospheric and subterranean harmonics capable of being heard all across the planet.

Illustration of how pyramids may generate power

The pyramidsnatural reservoirs of earth energy and advanced capacitors engineered to draw upon the planet’s magnetic force fieldare releasing and blasting pure energy into the drifting space cloud engulfing our defenseless planetary system.

The predicted harmonics have been heard, recorded, and heatedly discussed since the spring of 2011.

Recently, some recordings have appeared on Youtube from countries all over the globe posted by puzzled, sometimes frightened people, demanding to know what the sounds are. [Skyquakes: Warnings From Earth’s Destabilizing Core]

While some are undoubtedly fakes and hoaxes, others are genuine recordings of subterranean and atmospheric harmonics.

Professor Dr. Elchin Khalilov discusses the harmonics

In a recent interview with Geochange Magazine about the strange earth harmonics, eminent scientist, Professor Dr. Elchin Khalilov, gave this analysis:

“[The]possible cause of these soundsmay lie at the Earth’s core. The fact is that the acceleration of the drift of the Earth’s north magnetic pole which increased more than fivefold between 1998 and 2003 and is at the same level today points to intensification of energy processes in the Earth’s core, since it is processes in the inner and outer core that form the Earth’s geomagnetic field.

“Meanwhile, as we have already reported, on November 15, 2011 all ATROPATENA geophysical stations which record three-dimensional variations of the Earth’s gravitational field almost simultaneously registered a powerful gravitational impulse. The stations are deployed in Istanbul, Kiev, Baku, Islamabad and Yogyakarta, with the first and last one being separated by a distance of about 10,000 km. Such a phenomenon is only possible if the source of this emanation is at the Earth’s core level. That huge energy release from the Earth’s core at the end of the last year was some kind of a start signal indicating the transition of the Earth’s internal energy into a new active phase.” [Geochange Magazine]

And the harmonics are emanating from the Earth’s core as the good professor theorizes. Similar sounds are sometimes heard before great earthquakes strike.

This time, however, the sounds are not presaging massive earthquakes, but are being generated by the twisting magnetic field and the pulsing permutations of the spinning Earth’s core warping parts of the mantel. Everything’s reacting to the arrival of the huge photonic cloud that’s invaded our region of the Milky Way Galaxy.

What to expect

Demetriev warns to prepare for the worst. “Global catastrophe! Not in tens of years from now, but in ones of years.”

And as the Earth’s wailing rises into the sky, the pyramids thrust titanic bolts of energy far into space.

In a sky filled with bright stars, this image appears to show a massive black hole in its centre.

But, rather than being a genuine black hle, the eerily dark ‘hole’ in this photograph is a cloud of matter –  known to astronomers as a dark molecular cloud – which blocks all light from passing through it. In infrared images, though, it becomes transparent (below).

The interiors of molecular clouds are some of the coldest and most isolated places in the universe.

Eerie: Rather than being a massive vacuum in the universe, the eerily dark 'hole' is known to astronomers as a dark molecular cloudEerie: Rather than being a massive vacuum in the universe, the eerily dark ‘hole’ is known to astronomers as a dark molecular cloud

The bizarre sight is formed due to a high concentration of dust and molecular gas absorbing practically all the visible light emitted from background stars.

Pictured is Barnard 68, which is one of the most notable molecular clouds and is towards the constellation Ophiuchus.

Astronomers say because no stars are visible, this indicates that Barnard 68 is relatively nearby.

But this is still about 500 light-years away and half a light-year across. It is not known exactly how molecular clouds like Barnard 68 form.

In infrared light, the cloud is actually transparent - showing that there's no 'hole', but instead a cloud of cold matter that blocks light from the stars behind itIn infrared light, the cloud is actually transparent – showing that there’s no ‘hole’, but instead a cloud of cold matter that blocks light from the stars behind it

But scientists do know that these clouds are themselves likely places for new stars to form.

In fact, Barnard 68 itself has been found likely to collapse and form a new star system.

In infrared light, it is also possible to look right through the cloud.

2011 WAS THE NINTH WARMEST YEAR ON RECORD – NASA REVEALS

2011 was the ninth warmest year on record, NASA has announced.

The space agency recently released a video which shows global temperature changes since 1880.

And in a sign of how the planet is warming up, nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000.

The average temperature for the world last year was 0.92 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the mid-20th century baseline period of 1951 to 1980.

According to The Huffington Post, James E. Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, said, ‘We know the planet is absorbing more energy than it is emitting.

‘So we are continuing to see a trend toward higher temperatures. Even with the cooling effects of a strong La Niña influence and low solar activity for the past several years, 2011 was one of the 10 warmest years on record.’

Alien planets are incredibly common in our Milky Way galaxy, outnumbering stars by a large margin, a new study suggests.

On average, each of the 100 billion or so stars in our galaxy hosts at least 1.6 planets, according to the study, bringing the number of likely alien worlds to more than 160 billion. And large numbers of these exoplanets are likely to be small and rocky — roughly Earth-like — since low-mass planets appear to be much more abundant than large ones.

“This statistical study tells us that planets around stars are the rule, rather than the exception,” said study lead author Arnaud Cassan of the Paris Institute of Astrophysics. “From now on, we should see our galaxy populated not only with billions of bright stars, but imagine them surrounded by as many hidden extrasolar worlds.”

Using a cosmic gravity lens

To date, astronomers have discovered more than 700 planets beyond our own solar system, with 2,300 additional “candidates” found by NASA’s Kepler space telescope awaiting confirmation.

The vast majority of these exoplanet detections have been made using two different techniques: transit photometry and radial velocity. [Gallery: The Strangest Alien Planets]

Kepler employs the transit method, which watches for the tiny, telltale dips in a star’s brightness caused when a planet crosses the star’s face, blocking some of its light. Radial velocity looks for minuscule wobbles in a star’s movement caused by the gravitational tugs of orbiting planets.

While these two methods have been highly productive, they’re biased toward finding planets that orbit relatively close to their parent stars. In the new study, Cassan and his colleagues employed a different technique, known as gravitational microlensing, that feels this bias less strongly.

In gravitational microlensing, scientists watch what happens when a massive object passes in front of a star from our perspective on Earth. The nearby object’s gravitational field bends and magnifies the light from the distant star, acting like a lens.

This produces a light curve — a brightening and fading of the faraway star’s light over time — whose characteristics tell astronomers a lot about the foreground object.

In many cases, this nearby body is a star. If it has any planets, even ones in relatively far-flung orbits, these can generate secondary light curves, alerting researchers to their presence.

Studying millions of stars

In the new study, the researchers looked at data gathered by a variety of Earth-based telescopes, which scanned millions of stars from 2002 to 2007 for microlensing events.

The team closely analyzed about 40 of these events and discovered that three betrayed the presence of an alien planet around a star. One of these planets is a bit more massive than Jupiter, one is comparable to Neptune and the third is a so-called “super-Earth” with a mass about five times that of our home planet. [Gallery: Smallest Alien Planets Ever Seen]

Considering how perfectly aligned multiple bodies must be to yield an explanet detection via microlensing, that’s a pretty impressive haul, researchers said.

The astronomers used all of this data, as well as information about seven additional planets detected by other microlensing efforts, to put a number on their planet-detection efficiency — and, by extension, the number of alien worlds that may populate the Milky Way.

The team determined that about one-sixth of our galaxy’s stars harbor Jupiter-mass planets, half have Neptune-like worlds, and nearly two-thirds host super-Earths. And that’s just in the stretch of orbital space from 0.5 to 10 astronomical units from each star, the limit of the study’s sensitivity. (One astronomical unit, or AU, is the distance from Earth to the sun, about 93 million miles.)

“Moreover, we confirm that low-mass planets, such as super-Earths (up to 10 Earths) and Neptune-like planets are much more abundant than giant planets such as Saturn and Jupiter (with estimates that there are 6 to 7 times more low-mass than giant planets),” Cassan told SPACE.com in an email.

Further, according to the researchers’ calculations, every star in the Milky Way harbors an average of 1.6 planets in the 0.5-10 AU range, which in our solar system corresponds roughly to the swath of space between Venus and Saturn.

Since astronomers estimate that our galaxy contains about 100 billion stars, that works out to at least 160 billion alien planets. A fair number of these alien worlds are likely to have two sunsets like the planet Tatooine in the “Star Wars” films; a separate study, also announced today, related the discovery of two exoplanets that orbit a pair of suns.

Cassan and his team report their results in the Jan. 12 issue of the journal Nature.

Planets bound and unbound

The true number of alien worlds may be quite a bit larger than 160 billion. Some planets hug their host stars more closely than 0.5 AU, after all, and others are more far-flung than 10 AU. And a great many likely have no host star at all.

Last year, a different team used microlensing observations to discover a huge population of Jupiter-like planets that zoom through space unbound to a parent star. These free-flying “rogues” likely outnumber “normal” alien worlds with obvious parent stars by at least 50 percent, according to the 2011 study.

“The two results obtained by microlensing show that planets are everywhere, and not only around stars,” Cassan said.

For those of us clinging to the notion that Earth is special, these and a raft of other recent exoplanet discoveries may be tough to stomach.

“We used to think that the Earth might be unique in our galaxy,” study co-author Daniel Kubas, also of the Paris Institute of Astrophysics, said in a statement. “But now it seems that there are literally billions of planets with masses similar to Earth orbiting stars in the Milky Way.”

Filling in for George, John B. Wells, welcomed researcher Steve Quayle for the entire 4-hour program on Thursday night. He discussed disturbing trends in America and globally, the elite’s agenda against humanity, as well as how we could be facing epic Earth changes & solar disruptions. With the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act, the US government can accuse people of domestic terrorism and effectively remove them from their families without any kind of due process, thus trampling on the Bill of Rights, Quayle lamented. “We are, let’s face it, under a state of de facto martial law right now,” with our rights stripped away, a militarized police force, and intrusive surveillance, he continued. Further, he suggested that the US government is tracking citizens’ purchases using various algorithms, and eventually plans to remove guns from homes.

A report has emerged that there could be 14,000 excess deaths in the US linked to Fukushima radiation. The seriousness of the situation in Japan has been hushed up in the mainstream media, Quayle noted, adding that according to his source, there are possible plans for the evacuation of Tokyo. Regarding vaccinations in the US, which eventually may be made mandatory, he believes they put people’s health into a compromised state, and are ultimately part of the elite’s plan to reduce the population. Chemtrails are another method being used to attack people’s immune systems, he suggested.

Quayle said he is keeping an eye on volcanic activity in Iceland, because it could potentially set off the mid-Atlantic ridge in the Azores, causing a huge tsunami. We are seeing antipodal quakes, where seismic activity in one location can trigger a quake on the opposite spot on the globe, he stated. Weather modification technology and scalar weaponry may be increasing climate problems, and quakes, he added. People need to take survival preparedness seriously, and should make sure they have a “bug-out bag”– a portable kit containing items needed to survive for 72 hours when evacuating from a disaster, Quayle advised. He recommended Holly Deyo’s book, Dare to Prepare, for complete information on this topic.

The Final Word
Destruction First

The FEMA Camps are being “activated” at this time.  This is NOT A DRILL.  The Lord has spoken through His prophets, not once but many times.  The information this article will share correlates years of research and confirms dreams and visions from thousands of Christians across the world.  It matches the scripture perfectly.

It is with both a heavy heart, and one of eventual victory, that I write this article.  I’m not sure how long we have to prepare.

The Unfolding

The prophet Dr. David Owuor has been given vivid visions from our Father.  David Wilkerson was given visions of the same destruction years ago.  Now our Father, as prophesied by the prophet Joel, is speaking through His “people”.  Take heed and prepare, or ignore and suffer.

For what it’s worth I have been researching the dreams and visions of God’s leaders off and on for more than 30 years.  Indeed at the age of 10 I was listening to a record album of Jack Van Impe on the Gog and Magog invasion.  I’ve appeared on radio shows that have reached more than 8 million people.  I study the enemy with discerning ears and eyes.  I have written articles warning of cataclysmic destruction such as “Until All Hell Breaks Loose“.  ALL the data correlates.  There is no longer any doubt in my mind.

The utter destruction of the United States of America is “at hand”.  I believe this will mark the opening of the Sixth Seal (ref. Rev. 6:12).  It’s hard to be sure, as that could come even later.  As Dr. Owuor “speculated” in His 2009 You Tube video, the rapture of the Bride will happen sometime prior to the full manifestation of the Gog Magog war in Ezekiel 38 and 39.  However now, thanks to the mercy and grace of our Heavenly Father, a detailed revealing of events has been disclosed.

The following “key” events will unfold on short notice and almost certainly in “rapid fire succession“.

  • An Earthquake will Destroy California
  • A Massive West Coast Tsunami (think PacWave 2011, they know)
  • More Massive Earthquakes Ensue (possibly global)
  • A Massive East Coast Tsunami
  • Destruction of the United States
  • Immediate Activation of the FEMA Camps and 5 Districts
  • World War III – Gog and Magog Invasion
  • Nuclear War (pawned off by the enemy as Armageddon later)
  • Manifestation of Demonic / Fallen Angelic Entities in the Flesh
  • Almost certainly a massive UFO invasion to follow (ref. 2 Esdras 15)

Wilkerson and Owuor saw horrific visions of the first four (4) bullet points.  Many untold others have prophesied and seen visions of similar events.  Alex Jones has just received leaked confidential documentation from insider access to Kellog Brown & Root, a Halliburton subsidiary and the contractors responsible for leading the construction of more than 800 FEMA civil detention camps in the United States.  They are activating the FEMA Camps right now.

The FEMA Camps are Being Activated

Just hours ago, the Alex Jones “Infowars / Prison Planet” operation released arguably the most horrific news thus far.  Information has leaked.  The FEMA Camps are being activated at this time.  Not only have we seen the National Level Exercise Drills across the United States for Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and Nuclear, Biological and Chemical threats, but we have seen the military troop buildups.  We know about the Chinese troops on North American soil.  We are NOT blind.

We know about Planet X.  We’ve SEEN IT.

Here is an excerpt from the article mentioned above.

Exclusive: Government Activating FEMA Camps Across U.S.

Kurt Nimmo and Alex Jones
Infowars.com
December 6, 2011

Infowars.com has received a document originating from Halliburton subsidiary KBR that provides details on a push to outfit FEMA and U.S. Army camps around the United States. Entitled “Project Overview and Anticipated Project Requirements,” the document describes services KBR is looking to farm out to subcontractors. The document was passed on to us by a state government employee who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons.

Click HERE to read the entire article.

 Here is the You Tube video of that report:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4aQJqzIe8o&feature=player_embedded

DO NOT forget in January of this year, FEMA issued RFIs (Requests for Information) through their purchasing units for more than 7 million emergency food rations, emergency blankets and UNDERWATER BODY BAGS!  That was in January of this year!  By now they have filled those orders and placed many more.  The numbers are certainly FAR higher than the original RFIs reflected.

ALL HELL IS ABOUT TO BREAK LOOSE

The Final Verdict is In

Our Heavenly Father is now communicating through his people across the world in different ways.  Not only is He giving visions to His “leading” obedient and holy prophets, but He is now speaking through the “sons and daughters” and His regular followers.

Acts 2:17-18
17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
And they shall prophesy.
NKJV

Amen to THAT!

Here below is one such “young man”.  His name is Elvi Zapata.   God Bless Him!!   Mr. Zapata has been taken to Heaven in vivid “technicolor” visions.  His vision match those of Kat Kerr, Jesse Duplantis, and the book written in the 1800′s entitled “My Dream of Heaven”.  The information IS CONFIRMED people.  These revelations can NOT be disputed.

Elvi Zapata’s testimony confirms David Wilkerson’s visions from the ’70s.  Elvi Zapata’s testimony confirms the prophet Dr. David Owuors visions of destruction in the U.S.  Elvi Zapata’s testimony “matches” the Mayan “lore” from 5,000 plus years ago.  Evli Zapata’s testimony matches information embedded in the Hopi Red and Blue Star Kachina prophecy.  Zapata’s testimony even matches some of the “mixed bag” of information coming in from the fallen-angelic “channelers”.

IT MATCHES THE BIBLE.

Get out your NOTE PAD.  Take notes.  This is the real deal.

Summary in Jesus Name

Glory to Jesus Christ the King of Kings.  Glory to our awesome Heavenly Father.  TIME IS UP.  The only piece of this complex and confusing equation we weren’t able to figure out was WHEN the Bride would be taken.  And GLORY TO GOD … NOW we know precisely when.

The Bride will be take IMMEDIATELY AFTER the destruction of the West and East Coast of the United States via earthquake and tsunami.  Millions will die.  We are to PRAY for the people of Israel whom God will protect during the Iran (Gog and Magog) invasion / nuclear war.  We are to PRAY for the unsaved and saved people of the United States and the world.

Do not fear for your life, FEAR for your ETERNITY.

The TIME IS NOW for the Bride to prepare to endure these forthcoming calamities.  The Bride must buy rice, canned food, and stock up on water.  We do not know how long these calamities will take to fully unfold.  I don’t care how poor you think you are, SEEK THE LORD, visit a Metropolitan Ministry, get yourself some food and water.  If you are the Bride of Jesus Christ you won’t need much.  If you have doubts that you qualify as the Bride of Jesus Christ, you will need A LOT.

It rains on the Just and the Unjust.

Stan Deyo says NASA and the pentagon believe the Annunaki will return with the coming of Nibiru.  Whether it’s a planetor a brown dwarf star we will find out at some point but something ain’t right.

Its likely the Annunaki are already here (in underground military bases, such as Dulce, New Mexico, etc) and this will be a staged “contact”.

The name Nibiru was taken from the old Sumerian cuniform stone tablets and is loosely translated to mean “Planet of the crossing.”

The Sumerian civilization is thus far the oldest recorded civilization located in Mesopotamia; modern day Iraq. Sumerians spoke about planet Nibiru and the “gods” called the Anunnaki (Those who came from heaven to earth – FALLEN ANGELS) and their direct influence on Earths early civilizations and creating a hybrid species called nephilim (See Genesis 6).

  • Telescope is 10,000 times faster than any radio telescope today
  • Huge array of dishes connected by optical fibres
  • £1.3 billion machine will come to life in 2016

 

The £1.3 billion Square Kilometer Array is one of the most ambitious science projects ever undertaken – and the biggest telescope every built.

It will consist of dishes spread over a square kilometer of land in either South Africa or New Zealand – and will scan the sky 10,000 times faster than any existing telescope.

Signals received by the SKA will be transferred to a central high performance supercomputer by optical fibres. The rate at which the vast quantities of data will be transferred will far exceed the data rates of current internet traffic – but IBM is already designing machines to digest it.

The amount of data captured by the dishes is near-impossible to even imagine – enough to fill 15 million of the largest-capacity iPods every day.

Currently, most astronomy projects are managed ‘manually’ – ie by astronomers using comptuers, but ‘picking’ which data to home in on. The SKA will generate so much data this will be impossible.

But IBM has already prototyped software that can ‘digest’ it — and says that the technology could allow companies to oversee telecommunications systems and transport networks more effectively than they do today.

‘We will need new solutions to fully realize the vast scientific potential.’
