Japan’s Latest Tremors Agitated Earth’s Crust; 7 Ways the 2011 Japan Quake Shook the World
(March 14) A series of earthquakes rattled Tokyo and northeastern Japan on Wednesday evening but caused no apparent damage or injury in the same region hit by last year’s devastating tsunami. Following the first shock of the Japan tremors, agitation of the Earth’s crust increased, as evidentially detected and manifested in the shaking and vibration at the surface level of the planet. The escalation in global seismic disturbance, resulting from these underground movements along the worldwide faults can be seen when you examine the USGS’s Internet Seismic Server (LISS) after the tremors in Japan.

A day later, the disturbance subsided as shown above. When such a seismic wave occurs the surface of the Earth’s crust is agitated and disturbed just as the waves of the sea are. But these shocks produce a permanent alteration in the solid surface, whereas the waves of the sea give rise to only a passing perturbation.
Here are the effects the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami had on our planet: (Source)
7 – Cracks in the seafloor (shown above)
The earthquake ruptured below the seafloor off the coast of the Tohoku region, ripping open cracks along the ocean bottom. Submersibles spied these cracks, which measured around 3 to 6 feet (around 1 to 3meters) across, in the months after the earthquake.
Cracks on the seafloor and cracks on the Earth’s surface – coincidences or progressive earth changes leading to massive geological upheavel? Isaiah 24:19 The earth is completely devastated; the earth is split open; the earth is violently shaken.
6 – Smaller quakes triggered worldwide
The massive 9.0 temblor shook large sections of Japan and is still setting off aftershocks in the area. But the shaking wasn’t limited to the immediate region, some scientists think. There is evidence that the quake set off microquakes and tremors around the globe, mostly in places already known for their seismic activity such as Taiwan, Alaska and central California. These events likely didn’t exceed a magnitude of 3.0. However, some of the quakes occurred in low-activity areas, such as central Nebraska, central Arkansas and near Beijing. Tremors were even detected in Cuba. Scientists hope that linking these seismic events can help them better understand the inner workings of earthquakes.
These seismic events will lead up to more massive earthquakes around the world, including on in the United States, and eventually the Great Global Earthquake fortold in the Book of Revelation.
5 – Antarctic ice stream sped up
Thousands of miles away from Japan, the seismic waves of the Tohoku earthquake appeared to temporarily speed up the flow of the Whillans glacier. Glaciers are essentially rivers of ice that slowly flow, in the case of Antarctica, from the interior of the continent out to sea. The increased pace of the ice stream was detected by GPS stations located on the ice.
4 – Antarctic iceberg broken
The earthquake and its resulting tsunami were so powerful and far-reaching that they also broke off huge icebergs from Antarctica’s Sulzberger Ice Shelf. (An ice shelf is the part of a glacier that floats atop the sea.) Satellite images detected the tsunami waves breaking off chunks of ice some 18 hours after the earthquake.
Examples of the domino effect with large earthquakes affecting glacier motion. An ice stream (a type of glacier) is a region of an ice sheet that moves significantly faster than the surrounding ice. Both of these dynamic processes have been known by the scientists for years but are accelerated by these massive quakes. In 2010, NASA observed that even if surface melting declines, Antarctica is melting because it is losing mass due to the dynamic process of ice flowing downhill to the sea.

3 – Atmosphere was rattled
The massive earthquake not only shook the earth, but also rattled the atmosphere. Research had indicated that the surface motions and tsunamis that earthquakes generate can also trigger waves in the atmosphere, and the Japan earthquake generated the largest such disturbances seen yet, creating ripples in electrically charged particles reaching nearly 220 miles (350 kilometers) above the Earth.
Isaiah 13:13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will shake from its foundations at the wrath of the LORD of Hosts, on the day of His burning anger.
2 – Gravity altered
The earthquake was so powerful that it altered the pull of gravity under the area affected by the quake, as detected by the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites. The quake slightly thinned the crust, causes a slight reduction in the local gravity field.
The fissures appearing around the globe are signs of the earth’s crust breaking apart. As the Earth’s crust buckles, volcanic activity will increase. All things are interconnected.
1 – Earth’s day shortened
An analysis conducted just days after the earthquake struck found that the temblor accelerated Earth’s spin, shortening the length of the 24-hour day by 1.8 microseconds. A microsecond is a millionth of a second. The planet’s rotation sped up because the earthquake shifted the distribution of Earth’s mass, said geophysicist Richard Gross at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., who made the calculation.
Time is being sped up for the purpose of cutting the end time short before mankind can destroy itself – including the remnant. But Yahweh will not permit their own suicide. Instead, She decreed that Her wrath would result in mankind’s demise.
Matthew 24:22 “Unless those days were limited, no one would survive. But those days will be limited because of the elect.”
Mark 13:20 “If the Lord had not cut short those days, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them.”
