Over the past half of a decade, the world has seen extraordinary phenomena and wonders both in the skies on here on earth. One country that seems to be lucky (or cursed depending on how someone sees it) to see and experience these first-hand is Russia. For example, back in 2013, a giant meteorite exploded in the sky causing it to turn into a fireball which made impact in the country. That was just the beginning since literally hundreds of small meteorites have bombarded Russia in a short span of time after the colossal DA14. Though Russia wants to say that meteorite is a “weapon of mass destruction” from the United States. Now if it’s true that the United States can rain down the wrath of a meteorite shower upon a country, our weaponry is a lot more powerful than we thought.
Now reports of more strange environmental phenomena are coming in as a giant crater suddenly opened up in the Yamal Peninsula in northern Russia next to Siberia.
According to the initial report by Siberia Times, the striking hole that punctures into the earth, estimated to be about 80 meters or 262 feet wide, was discovered on Friday, July 11, 2014. It’s depth is not estimated at the time because of uncertainty but a scientific team will be sent out on Wednesday to to investigate the hole. Until then, many are pondering what could have caused the hole to suddenly appear in Yamal. So far, the causes given range from global warming to a meteorite striking a potential sinkhole area causing it to implode more so than if the sinkhole would have done by itself.
A follow-up report by The Examiner indicate that the hole may have been caused by Russia’s natural gas reserves, estimated at 55 trillion cubic meters. In that case, maybe the this was a gas leak that just so happened to cause an explosion outwards thus creating the hole. There is evidence of this because the soil around the crater did not fall in, but rather was thrown out, but it is also dark in color indicating some sort of exposure to high temperature.
In a final follow-up report by Now The End Begins, the reason for the giant hole may have spiritual significance. First, it must be reiterated that the location of the hole is in the Yamal Peninsula – a place that is somewhat isolated with the exception of a small village that was nearby. Yamal is Russian for “End of the World”. The Christians who believe in End Times, or Watchmen, are linking the giant hole to Revelation 9:1 & 2 which reads:
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”
It has been said the hole looks like an impact hole from a meteor or asteroid. What do they look like when they enter the earth’s atmosphere? Falling stars right? If there is something heated in that deep hole and it reaches the 55 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, it can be expected a lot of smoke will be rising from that hole.
