The magnitude 7.8 quake brought down whole apartment blocks in Turkish cities and piled more devastation on millions of Syrians who were already displaced by years of civil war. The quake struck before sunrise and was followed in the early afternoon by another large quake. The freezing winter weather adding to the devastation of the vast numbers of those left injured or homeless, creating an added hardship on both survivors and rescue workers trying to find survivors.

Temperatures in some areas were expected to fall to near freezing overnight, worsening conditions for people trapped under rubble or left homeless. Rain fell on Monday after snowstorms swept the country over the weekend.

Gravitas asks if your country will be next? This lends the idea that… there may be a bit of HAARP involved moving some things around under the ground. Tectonic plate shifting is part of the new arsenal of direct energy weapons… but, then again… they would never do that…or would they?


So as the world shakes… back and forth as a drunkard, there appears to be many a Bible scripture to quote on this day. For now, we will observe as there are many things coming down at the same time. Damascas is looking like it is in a ruin, the new world religion is sounding their horns, DAVOS KM Oligarchs are greedily rubbing their hands together looking at the puppets they have left to see which orders to have them implement, while the Profits are all out giving their version of Jesuit Darby teachings and adding their own “I see with my little eye” ideals….

In the midst of all of this Joey Avatar has told Zelensky he will not get his fighter jets. This could be a signal that finally it is time for him to shut up and sit down. I hope he understands that now is not the time to ask for any more billions so he can continue to steal, kill and destroy his own country while the world has their eyes on Turkey and Syria who have been devastated by an earthquake that has millions misplaced, thousands dead, and thousands more injured. Humanitarian aid is needed and if Zelensky has some billions stuffed in some of his coffers, perhaps someone can suggest for him to offer assistance to Turkey and Syria?

It appears Zelensky does have some means to help as Ukraine and Russia were among the countries that immediately pledged to send rescuers and other aid immediately after the news of the powerful earthquake striking Turkey and Syria in the early hours of February 6. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said Kyiv stand ready to send a large group of rescue workers to Turkey even as it battles to repel invading Russian troops. “We are working closely with the Turkish side to coordinate their deployment,” Kuleba said on Twitter. Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke by phone with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, also promising to send rescuers.

Remember, God has this entire world in his hands and in the end the wheat are gathered into His barn, and the tares are burned in the fire. There are children of the Lord scattered throughout the entire world and God has promised to gather them all. Hold on until I come… is what the Lord has said unto the churches.

It is at this time, we turn to the seven churches in Revelation. Did you know that they were all located in Turkey?

  • 1. Ephesus The first church is in Ephesus, where St John lived. …

The area deemed Asia, is the same as today’s Turkey. Ponder it. Smile.

As I pondered the seven churches and sought a deeper understanding than the one I once understood… it struck me it meant something far more than I had believed. I did a little searching and found this gem. Please enjoy watching and pray about what the scripture is telling us.

Keep on pressing into the kingdom of God. Press, press, press!
