But, will Yellowstone really be erupting in the next couple of weeks? NO - Not necessarily at all.
This conjecture came about due to a quote from onsite Yellowstone geologist, Hank Heasler, during an interview with CBS.
His quote, which was taken out of context, merely means that due to the ever-changing nature of seismography, that there is only about a 2-week window of certainty.
Heasly stated that, "One thing that Yellowstone has taught me is that everything changes so be careful in what you predict and forecast."
There is no need to fear, for it is God who does the 'changing' - (Daniel 2:21-22)
"And he changeth the times and the seasons: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him."
God knows what is going on inside the Earth - He knows the 'deep and secret things' and He knows what is happening in the 'darkness'.
Below is an excerpt of Heasly's interview on CBS news entitled 'Will the Yellowstone Volcano Erupt?'
Researchers like Hank who study both seismic and volcanic activity here at Yellowstone say they are fairly certain that there will be no type of volcanic eruption here in the foreseeable future.
But then we asked Hank to define "foreseeable future".
"Now what do we mean by foreseeable future? I would say, you know a couple of weeks, and that's what I would say with certainty."
The mystery here is what happens next.
Life here seems to move slow. But geologically, seismically and volcanically things are changing and in motion all the time.
And if you're in the business of being certain about things like Hank Heasler is, it makes you job very challenging.
The people who actively watch this situation seemingly fall into two camps: those who think the Yellowstone volcano will never erupt again and those who think it will happen tomorrow.
The truth is no one knows for sure when it will happen again, but the experts we've spoken with and several others say it will happen.
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY? - All this will happen someday, but in God's timing:
"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." 2 Peter 3:10
"The foundations of the earth do shake. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed...; and it shall fall, and not rise again." Isaiah 24:18-20
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." Matthew 24:7-8
