Its hard to tell were the Sandwich island is truly at in that kind of map of the earth that you keep useing. Show us a flat earth map Watchers then that way all of your news will be true! It looks like to me that all of this shaking is originating from that angry God who is causing his chosen black Hebrews and gentils who had care for him to come home. Looks like also that Monday the 19th of August the true fourth mouth on the jubilee calendar is going to be !!!!!!!!? I do not want to be around for that. But we will be ok! anyway, see you at the feast on the day of the full moon (new moon) NASA and who's red snacks tung is that on your logo? NASA uh? Do you see now who the true God is with all of the disasters he is doing? you who took away his children who did also at that time deserved punishment for thier sins. For they also was not good! Because of worshipping the idols of that land. So God allowed them also to go into captivity on ships. But because of your envy of them and your long standing hate of them you was over doing the punishment of them and of there ten tribe brothers who was in America first before you came to it. Therefore you are seeing the punishment for your changing of all of the words of God so too make his people forget how to worship the only true God!!!!!!! Act 7:5-7 Isaiah 18: 1-7 and causing them to worship him according to the ways of your false gods who have no power to save you as you can now see#!! For even the stars who you like to worship are falling!!!! The message for all of the kingdom's of the lands
