  • So California is prepared and has put away cash to cover the disaster? Bet they have nothing in the budget to pit away and the Democrat politicians expect mother to bail them out.

  • I had a dream years ago when I still lived in my hometown, San Diego. I saw great devestation in Los Angeles. A portion of the coastal region was as sitting out in the ocean surrounded by water. I believe the airport was separated. What I remember most is the feeling of complete unbelievable astonishment at all the horrible distruction I could see. Buildings were broken down. I felt an air of overwhelming death and quiet.

  • 231 Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who has exalted yourself into heaven, and sent all the dirty, filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, to your fine churches and steeples, and so forth, the way you do. Remember, one day you’ll be laying in the bottom of the sea, your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He will hold this sandbar hanging out over that? When, that ocean out yonder, a mile deep, will slide in there, plumb back to the Salton Sea. 65-0429E - The Choosing Of A Bride Rev. William Marrion Branham

  • I don’t know why someone would venture to predict “2,000 deaths will occur.”. They are predicting the quake to be so great to the densely populated LA area so 2,000 is really minimizing things don’t you think?

    • Pay no attention to Jesus's promise that he would return during the lifetime of his apostles. Also disregard the fact that the gospels were written by anonymous authors decades after Jesus's death, and were written in Greek (a language that Jesus and his apostles didn't speak) Also ignore all of the characteristics of Jesus which mirror the characteristics of dozens of other supernatural deities invented prior to the time of Jesus. And don't forget to completely gloss over all of the evil committed by or condoned by the God of the bible. Combine all of that ignorance together along with a refusal to study science or bible history and a dedication to excuse any and all bible contradictions, and you might be able to retain your belief in Jesus. 🙏 Best of luck!

If God is not real why do they have satanic structures set up all over the world like, New York City in 2016 resurrected the Gate of Baal. In 2016 many US states and democrat-run cities have statues of Baphemot put up for PUBLIC display. Please WAKE UP Brothers and Sisters
