Christchurch Quake “Anomalies”

October 14, 2010
The 7.0 Christchurch earthquake on September 4, 2010 at 04:35 local time (September 3 at 16:35 UTC) preceded the scheduled Feast of Trumpets by 5 days. Naturally, the nature of the quake and its location to place and time caused quite a stir. Not only was it for the name of Christchurch, but it was also for the fact that not one soul perished with such damage.  The quake also formed its own fault line. It seemed as if this was a sign that the Feast of Trumpets was on schedule for the Rapture of the Church in a few days.

Since that time, factors have been refigured and many have been sent in that deserve consideration. All of them seem to show the importance of this event at Christchurch. Is God trying to get our attention?

The first figure is that Christchurch was 9,110 miles from New York City. Think 9-11.

Another interesting item is that Christchurch is 144.4 degrees from Jerusalem.  That is close enough to 144 and a number seen landing on the upcoming day of October 18, 2010 from the gaining of Jerusalem and the Temple Mount on June 7, 1967 .

Also noted is that Christchurch is located at 43.55 degrees south corresponding to the local quake time of 04:35. But it gets better. Strong’s number of 435 is the word “elul”. The quake occurred on the observed calendar day of Elul 25. According to Nehemiah 6:15 the wall was completed on Elul 25 in 52 days. Elul 25 is also the traditional day that is observed as the first day of Creation with Adam being created on day 6 or Tishri 1. It is also interesting that 52 days from Elul 25 corresponds to Heshvan 17, which will be October 25, 2010 on the observed calendar–this is the anniversary day of the Flood.

Another item already documented on this website is that the Christchurch quake fits into a time parallel with the Haiti and Chile earthquakes. The Port-au-Prince quake marks 40 weeks exactly in a countdown to October 18, 2010.  The 8.8 Concepcíon, Chile earthquake at 06:34 UTC February 27, 2010 marks exactly 234 days prior to October 18, 2010. Also in a parallel, the 7.0 Port-au-Prince earthquake at 21:53 UTC January 12, 2010 until the 7.0 Christchurch earthquake on September 4, 2010 (September 3 at 16:35 UTC) also covers 234 days.

Since the Christchurch quake there have been nearly 2,000 aftershocks/earthquakes. When the first Chilean miner exited the earth it was 12:11 am local time. Thirty minutes later Christchurch had a 5.0 earthquake. It was day 40 since the quake and day 70 of the miners being in the earth. In five more days it will be October 18, 2010. The initial Christchurch quake also occurred five days before September 9th, which was the Feast of Trumpets on the observed calendar.

Therefore the Christchurch earthquake occurred 45 days before the observed Heshvan 10 on October 18, 2010. Another period of 45 days can be found from day 1290 to day 1335. Does it seem fitting that this period also incorporates Heshvan 10 since day 1290 in 2017 fits that day?

We are indeed reaching a culmination of numbers in the days ahead, but will it come to fruition? This writer believes it will and we will soon find out better what is indeed all coming together as planned. Then we shall see clearly, one way or another!

The Significance of Christchurch
Special guest article by Christopher Arendt

It seems the Christchurch earthquake was far more significant than most have imagined. There are many numerical synchronicities associated with it that together point to a powerful conclusion. To begin with, the quake, which happened on September 4th, 2010 at 4:35 am local time, had the same number describing its location at 43.55 degrees south! Biblical numericist Clay Cantrell also observed that this number corresponds to the height of the window through which the dove flew out of Noah's ark in search of dry land (Gen. 6:16):

29 cubits times 18 (inches per cubit) = 522 inches
522 divided by 12 = 43.5 feet

This seemingly obscure connection is not so random as it might appear, since 435 is the 29th "triangular number" of mathematics, i.e. 1+2=3, (1+2)+3=6, (1+2+3)+4=10, etc.

The 18 inch cubit is the one most commonly accepted by scholars, although there were in fact several different cubits in use in ancient times. According to the World Book Encyclopedia, the standard cubit used at the time of Solomon was 25.2 inches. David Flynn, in his book Temple at the Center of Time, noted a distinction between a "royal" cubit of 25.2 inches and a "common" cubit of 21.6 inches. The royal cubit would therefore equal seven "palms" of 3.6 inches. Six palms are 21.6 inches, five are 18 inches. This of course is another way of looking at 360 degrees times six and seven to get 2160, 2520, and numbers in the dimensions of the Earth and Moon.

(The equatorial radius of the Moon is 1,738.1 km. This converts to 360 leagues or a diameter of exactly 2,160 statute miles. 360 X 6 = 2,160. The volumetric mean radius of Earth is 6,371 km or a diameter of 7,917.52 statute miles. 360 X 7 = 2,520. 2,520 X Pi = 7,916.81. The measurements of the Earth and Moon are ordained by God to conform to sacred numbers. Source:

What happens if we use a 21.6 inch cubit?

29 cubits times 21.6 = 626.4 inches
626.4 divided by 12 = 52.2 feet
52.2 divided by 12 = 4.35

Or, 626.4 divided by 144 = 4.35

144 = 36 times 4 or the precessional number 72 twice. (The Sun precesses one degree every 72 years.)

If we use a 25.2 length cubit, we get the approximate length of the year:
29 times 25.2 = 730.8
730.8 divided by 2 = 365.4 days

The fact that the number 435 of the time and place of the quake is confirmed twice more by two different cubits is interesting, to say the least (not to mention a third cubit measurement calculating to a significant number in the division of time on Earth.) I would also add that since we arrive at the number by dividing by twelve and twelve times twelve, it would seem to indicate that the time is up. Many people have already suggested that the devastating earthquake in "Christchurch" (in which nobody was killed and only two people hurt-- very unusual for an earthquake of that magnitude) is a message from God as to the imminent Rapture of the Bride, when Believers will be caught up into the air to be with the Lord. But there is still more to it.

There are also 144 degrees between the Christchurch earthquake and the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. One degree equals 60 nautical miles, so 360 degrees is 21,600 miles for the circumference of the Earth.

Note also that between the quake and New York City there are 9,110 statute miles! (Source: Google Earth)

The connections only get stronger the deeper we dig. Strong's Number (the modern numbering system of the Bible lexicon) H0435 (Hebrew) is "Elul", or the name of the sixth month. It is found in only one verse of the Bible, Nehemiah 6:15, "So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days." The 25th day of Elul this (Gregorian) year corresponded to September 4th, 2010, the very day of the Christchurch quake! Also, as noted above, 4.35 times 12 equals 52.2, or the approximate number of days it took to finish the wall around Jerusalem! The 25th of Elul has another important distinction-- Jewish tradition has it that it was Day One of Creation, with God creating Adam on the sixth day, which was Tishri 1 as well as Rosh Hashanna and the Feast of Trumpets.

Strong's Number H0522 is "Ammah", the same as 0520; "a cubit"!
Strong's Number G0522 (Greek) is "apairo", meaning 1) to lift off, take or carry away 2) to be taken away from anyone. This certainly brings to mind the Rapture. These connections we have made so far are by themselves incredible, indeed, but there is in fact more to see.

Timothy Snodgrass posted on his website that he arrived in San Francisco Airport at exactly 9:35 am local time, which is the simultaneous moment that the earthquake occurred in Christchurch. I find this of more than just passing interest, since Snodgrass has a proven track record as a prophet, as an intercessor for earthquakes, and for being in the right place at the right time. He most famously published a vision of an earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia a month before the big quake hit in 2004. In 1992, he had been prophecying about an earthquake to hit Southern California; on the day that he landed in L.A. to interceed, the 7.3 Landers quake hit. Since it was in a sparsely populated area, the damage was minimal.

The day that TS landed in SF was Sept. 3rd, which was the day that Weatherbill infamously predicted the megaquake to destroy San Francisco. While TS never mentioned anything about WB or an impending quake to hit SF, I do find it significant that this particular man landed where he did at the moment that he did. That cannot be a coincidence. But there is still more to it.

On Sept. 3rd, a massive prayer rally was held in Sacramento by an organization called The Call. About 14,000 prayer warriors were present to intercede for California. (I should add that there was no mention of praying to avert an earthquake on the organization's website. The event was your standard prayer for spiritual revival and divine protection. Their verse is Ezekiel 22:30a!)

Just a few hours after TS departed the San Francisco airport, a massive gas line explosion destroyed a neighborhood in San Bruno, just a few miles from the airport. Several people were killed and many more wounded. The day of the explosion, Sept. 9th, also happens to be California's birthday, the day it was admitted as a state. It was also during Rosh Hashanah and Trumpets, by the official calendar, and the day before WB's alternate quake date of Sept. 10th.

On August 10th, WB's first date for a "warning" tsunami, a 7.3 quake rocked Vanuatu, creating a 9 inch tsunami. Nine is the biblical number of "judgment." While not a large tsunami, it is important to realize that these events are quite rare.

What to make of all this? One could say that Weatherbill was vindicated to at least a certain extent. Indeed, he had initially repented right after Sept. 3rd passed with no earthquake to hit California, posting a video on Youtube of him burning his cards (a.k.a. biblical "lots"). But then he repented of his repenting, becoming convinced that the intercessory prayer of The Call averted judgment. You could add the Timothy Snodgrass arrival as a factor, as well.

We can go still a little deeper. Counting from Sept. 4th, the date of the Christchurch quake New Zealand time, 43.5 days takes us to Oct. 17-18. That is Heshvan 10, the day that Noah was sealed in the ark. If we use one of the alternate numbers above, 52.2 days is Oct. 26, the day after Heshvan 17 or the day the Flood began. Jesus said, "As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man." Mat. 24:37

While the magnitude of these findings defies all logical explanation apart from Divine design, it is important that we not get lost in the details but rather recognize a definite pattern that points to the soon return of Christ. The symbolism of the "migrating" earthquake (to the opposite end of the ocean), one that shook so severely that the ground became like liquid to the knees but did no harm to Christ ('s) Church. (Only two people were injured in the quake.) The judgment delayed but a short while until the prophet's departure, then a sharp-- yet still merciful blow. Time is short. The time to repent and turn to Jesus Christ is now. "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

"For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left." Mat. 24:38-41

Update: The Christchurch 7.0 earthquake was 153 days from Easter. On Easter there was the 7.2 Baja-California quake. Easter was on April 4, 2010. 153 is the number of fish in the nets as recorded in John 21:11.
