 Japan Quake Damages NukePowerplant - Releases Radioactive H2O into Ocean

Japanese officials released a list Tuesday of 50 malfunctions at a nuclear power plant, the day after a large earthquake sparked fresh debate over the safety of the tremor-prone country's nuclear power facilities.

The malfunctions included fires, water and oil leaks and pipes knocked out of place by Monday's 6.6-magnitude quake, according to the Tokyo Electric Power Co., the company running the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear plant.

The company said it is still inspecting the plant, which shut down automatically after the quake, and further problems could emerge. Spokesman Kensuke Takeuchi called the instances discovered so far "minor troubles" and said they pose no threat to people or the environment.

Monday's quake, which killed nine people, injured dozens of others and left thousands homeless, initially triggered a small fire at an electrical transformer in the sprawling plant. But it was announced 12 hours later that the quake also caused a leak of water containing radioactive material.

Officials also said about 100 drums containing low-level nuclear waste fell over at the plant during the quake. They were found a day later, some with their lids open, said Masahide Ichikawa, an official with the local government in Niigata.

Japan's 55 nuclear reactors supply 30 per cent of the country's electricity, and have suffered a long string of accidents and coverups.
Residents crowd shelters

Monday's quake killed nine people in their 70s or 80s — six women and three men — in Japan's northwestern Niigata prefecture. Another 47 were seriously injured.

One person was missing and another 13,000 were staying in schools and other secure buildings in the quake zone 250 kilometres northwest of Tokyo, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said.

On Tuesday, thousands of residents in the hardest-hit city of Kashiwazaki huddled in crowded emergency shelters as others whose houses still stood contended with no power, gas or water services.

Japan's meteorological agency warned residents of potential aftershocks in the coming days after a second strong quake struck in the Sea of Japan off the country's west coast near the Kyoto region just over 12 hours after the first tremor.

Meanwhile, rescue workers searched for survivors amid the rubble of hundreds of homes in the area, as officials warned of potential landslides.

Thunderstorms and flooding were expected Tuesday throughout the quake zone, increasing the likelihood that the quake-softened, water-logged ground would give way on hillsides and cause even more damage, officials said.

The Defence Ministry dispatched 450 soldiers to the devastated area to clear rubble, search for any survivors under collapsed buildings and provide food, water and toilet facilities.

About 50,000 homes were without water and 35,000 were without gas as of Tuesday morning, local official Mitsugu Abe said. About 27,000 households were without power.

"And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter." (REV 8:10-11)

Chernobyl, as in "Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster", means "wormwood" in Ukranian.

"Wormwood is a bitter herb,used in russia in
herbal remedies. Its dark green oil would
turn people's tounges black. the term for
black in russian is cherin. People begin to
call wormwood by a second name. Chernobyl
The chernobyl nuclear plant was named after
the field of wormwood it was built upon.
This tragic event was foretold in the book
of Revelation. Since John didn't know what a
nuclear plant or radiation was, he described it the best way he could. "A star fell burning like
a lamp. (Reactor on fire) The name of the star
is wormwood,and it fell on a third part of the
waters and they became wormwood(radioactive)
and they were made bitter,(radioactive) and
many died from drinking the water."
On April 25,1986 between one and two in the
morning the third trunphet of revelations
sounded."

ESDRAS II from The Apocrypha (King James Version)

Chapter 15

1 Behold, speak thou in the ears of my people the words of prophecy, which I will put in thy mouth, saith the Lord:

2 And cause them to be written in paper: for they are faithful and true.

3 Fear not the imaginations against thee, let not the incredulity of them trouble thee, that speak against thee.

4 For all the unfaithful shall die in their unfaithfulness.

5 Behold, saith the Lord, I will bring plagues upon the world; the sword, famine, death, and destruction.

6 For wickedness hath exceedingly polluted the whole earth, and their hurtful works are fulfilled.

7 Therefore saith the Lord,

8 I will hold my tongue no more as touching their wickedness, which they profanely commit, neither will I suffer them in those things, in which they wickedly exercise themselves: behold, the innocent and righteous blood crieth unto me, and the souls of the just complain continually.

9 And therefore, saith the Lord, I will surely avenge them, and receive unto me all the innocent blood from among them.

10 Behold, my people is led as a flock to the slaughter: I will not suffer them now to dwell in the land of Egypt:

11 But I will bring them with a mighty hand and a stretched out arm, and smite Egypt with plagues, as before, and will destroy all the land thereof.

12 Egypt shall mourn, and the foundation of it shall be smitten with the plague and punishment that God shall bring upon it.

13 They that till the ground shall mourn: for their seeds shall fail through the blasting and hail, and with a fearful constellation.

14 Woe to the world and them that dwell therein!

15 For the sword and their destruction draweth nigh, and one people shall stand up and fight against another, and swords in their hands.

16 For there shall be sedition among men, and invading one another; they shall not regard their kings nor princes, and the course of their actions shall stand in their power.

17 A man shall desire to go into a city, and shall not be able.

18 For because of their pride the cities shall be troubled, the houses shall be destroyed, and men shall be afraid.

19 A man shall have no pity upon his neighbour, but shall destroy their houses with the sword, and spoil their goods, because of the lack of bread, and for great tribulation.

20 Behold, saith God, I will call together all the kings of the earth to reverence me, which are from the rising of the sun, from the south, from the east, and Libanus; to turn themselves one against another, and repay the things that they have done to them.

21 Like as they do yet this day unto my chosen, so will I do also, and recompense in their bosom. Thus saith the Lord God;

22 My right hand shall not spare the sinners, and my sword shall not cease over them that shed innocent blood upon the earth.

23 The fire is gone forth from his wrath, and hath consumed the foundations of the earth, and the sinners, like the straw that is kindled.

24 Woe to them that sin, and keep not my commandments! saith the Lord.

25 I will not spare them: go your way, ye children, from the power, defile not my sanctuary.

26 For the Lord knoweth all them that sin against him, and therefore delivereth he them unto death and destruction.

27 For now are the plagues come upon the whole earth and ye shall remain in them: for God shall not deliver you, because ye have sinned against him.

28 Behold an horrible vision, and the appearance thereof from the east:

29 Where the nations of the [b]dragons of Arabia[/b] shall come out with many chariots, and the multitude of them shall be carried as the wind upon earth, that all they which hear them may fear and tremble.

30 Also the Carmanians raging in wrath shall go forth as the wild boars of the wood, and with great power shall they come, and join battle with them, and shall waste a portion of the land of the Assyrians.

31 [b]And then shall the dragons have the upper hand[/b], remembering their nature; and if they shall turn themselves, conspiring together in great power to persecute them,

32 Then these shall be troubled bled, and keep silence through their power, and shall flee.

33 And from the land of the Assyrians shall the enemy besiege them, and consume some of them, and in their host shall be fear and dread, and strife among their kings.

34 [b]Behold clouds from the east and from the north unto the south, and they are very horrible to look upon, full of wrath and storm[/b].

35 They shall smite one upon another, and [b]they shall smite down a great multitude of stars upon the earth, even their own star[/b]; and blood shall be from the sword unto the belly,

36 And dung of men unto the camel's hough.

37 And there shall be great fearfulness and trembling upon earth: and they that see the wrath shall be afraid, and trembling shall come upon them.

38 [b]And then shall there come great storms from the south, and from the north, and another part from the west.[/b]

39 And strong winds shall arise from the east, and shall open it; [b]band the cloud which he raised up in wrath, and the star stirred to cause fear toward the east and west wind, shall be destroyed[/b].

40 [b]The great and mighty clouds shall be puffed up full of wrath, and the star, that they may make all the earth afraid, and them that dwell therein; and they shall pour out over every high and eminent place an horrible star,

41 Fire, and hail, [i]and flying swords[/i], and many waters, that all fields may be full, and all rivers, with the abundance of great waters.[/b]

42 And they shall break down the cities and walls, mountains and hills, trees of the wood, and grass of the meadows, and their corn.

43 [b]And they shall go stedfastly unto Babylon, and make her afraid[/b].

44 They shall come to her, and besiege her, [b]the star and all wrath shall they pour out upon her: then shall the dust and smoke go up unto the heaven, and all they that be about her shall bewail her[/b].

45 And they that remain under her shall do service unto them that have put her in fear.

46 And thou, Asia, that art partaker of the hope of Babylon, and art the glory of her person:

47 Woe be unto thee, thou wretch, because thou hast made thyself like unto her; and hast decked thy daughters in whoredom, that they might please and glory in thy lovers, which have always desired to commit whoredom with thee.

48 Thou hast followed her that is hated in all her works and inventions: therefore saith God,

49 I will send plagues upon thee; widowhood, poverty, famine, sword, and pestilence, to waste thy houses with destruction and death.

50 And the glory of thy Power shall be dried up as a flower, the heat shall arise that is sent over thee.

51 Thou shalt be weakened as a poor woman with stripes, and as one chastised with wounds, so that the mighty and lovers shall not be able to receive thee.

52 Would I with jealousy have so proceeded against thee, saith the Lord,

53 If thou hadst not always slain my chosen, exalting the stroke of thine hands, and saying over their dead, when thou wast drunken,

54 Set forth the beauty of thy countenance?

55 The reward of thy whoredom shall be in thy bosom, therefore shalt thou receive recompence.

56 Like as thou hast done unto my chosen, saith the Lord, even so shall God do unto thee, and shall deliver thee into mischief

57 Thy children shall die of hunger, and thou shalt fall through the sword: thy cities shall be broken down, and all thine shall perish with the sword in the field.

58 They that be in the mountains shall die of hunger, and eat their own flesh, and drink their own blood, for very hunger of bread, and thirst of water.

59 Thou as unhappy shalt come through the sea, and receive plagues again.

60 And in the passage they shall rush on the idle city, and shall destroy some portion of thy land, and consume part of thy glory, and shall return to Babylon that was destroyed.

61 And thou shalt be cast down by them as stubble, and they shall be unto thee as fire;

62 And shall consume thee, and thy cities, thy land, and thy mountains; all thy woods and thy fruitful trees shall they burn up with fire.

63 Thy children shall they carry away captive, and, look, what thou hast, they shall spoil it, and mar the beauty of thy face.

 Japan Quake

No need for this kind of sensationalism or newspaper theology.

crsschk, the only thing I wrote in those three posts was, "Chernobyl, as in 'Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster', means 'wormwood' in Ukranian."

I'm not prophesying. I think it's an interesting coincidence, particularly considering II Esdras.

I hope I didn't ruin your day or anything.

 Re: Japan Quake Damages NukePowerplant - Releases Radioactive H2O into Ocean

Have to agree with Mike... people have taken Revelation 8:10 to mean so much from things that are happening in their day like other verses in Revelation... they took the star to mean either Pelagius (Gill thought that), Arius (Wesley thought that), etc...

You wrote more than that sentence, btw. Whenever you 'quote' something you give a certain nod of approval to the text if you don't state otherwise, which you did here. Quoting Edras II seems a bit odd too, considering it's non-canonical and therefore can't be trusted as God's word, especially when speaking of prophecies.

Revelation is a real mysterious book. I dislike when people try to take current events and fit them around verses from Revelation. Sort of like what Jack Van Imp does.

The Apocrypha was in the 1611 KJV and in the vast majority of Bibles until about 1875. The Puritans brought their Apocrypha-ridden Bibles to America on the Mayflower in 1620. And it's been a part of the Bible (Septuagint) for the past 1700 years.

And the prophecy in chapter fifteen sounds a heck of a lot like nuclear weapons (fire, hail, flying swords, deadly water... 'their star' killing by the wind...).

I knew you were gonna say this... Luther's Bible, while it included the Apocrypha, omitted Esdras 2. Even the Catholic Church did not regard 1st and 2nd Esdras as canonical (declared in the Council of Trent).

BTW, while most of Esdras is thought to be written in around 100 AD, the last two chapters (15,16) are thought to be written in the latter 3rd century.

Meh. No need to argue. Read it or don't read it and make up your own mind. It's cool with me.

No, there isn't, but you stated the Apocrypha was apart of the Septuagint, I just want to clarify that 2 Esdras wasn't even included in that either, only in the Vulgate & 1611 KJV, mainly because it was written too late.

Michael E. Stone: "6 Ezra [2 Esdras 15-16] was written to encourage a community in a time of persecution. Internal indications suggest a date in the late third century A.D. The work is usually regarded as a Christian composition, although Jewish authorship cannot be excluded." (Harper's Bible Commentary, p. 777)

Michael E. Stone, concerning the 15:28-33 passage: "The prophet describes a vision of two military forces (each represented symbolically by an animal) engaged in battle in the east. It is generally thought that these two forces represent the troops of Odenathus of Palmyra ('the Arabian dragons,' v. 29) and those of Shapur I of Persia ('the Carmonians,' v. 30), which fought on the eastern bordres of the Roman Empire in A.D 260-261. If this identification is correct, it establishes the earliest possible date of composition for the work." (Harper's Bible Commentary, p. 789)
