The end of the world

Dead Sea Scrolls reveal that will occur in 2011

Our universe is a kind of great cosmic clock, which is in turn in a mind field of only two
possible dimensions, is the great cosmic clock or Shu (light) that separate them from the
other dimension., This order affected by the appearance of a channel between these
two dimensions. There are therefore two dimensions, the spiritual dimension and the
dimension of the body. The spiritual dimension, he would be there somewhere, but few
elements between dimensions, they perceive that this is indeed the case.
The spiritual dimension is inhabited by beings of light, but also by creatures of
darkness, hell is not there, but is rather a state in the near future on Earth. This stretch
from supplementing the great cosmic clock cycle to a certain moment in the future as
beings of light enters the picture.May 21, 2011, may be the beginning to the
transformation of Earth into hell, this is related to the inherent need in the body
dimension of suffering and detachment from the material body, to pass through the
gateway to the dimension spiritual beings of light.
The souls of all those spirits that are in the body size and still have not made it through
the door to the spiritual dimension, are there in that alternate dimension, some can not
even enter this dimension and wander through the plane of waiting for this moment living
in the future in which their souls to reach the state called hell so they can ascend
gradually to the spiritual dimension

The Great Cosmic Clock of God

The great cosmic clock is a special type of alignment, which allows for the day when it
would open a channel or gateway between one and another dimension, after a study
linking the iconography of various faiths, I was able to establish the parameters for this


1) Link a triple conjunction between Mercury-Mars-Venus near the Sun and the
Pleiades (7 Sisters - M45 - 7 wavelets - lotus etc ....)

2) Note that the Sun must be in the constellation Taurus and close to M45

3) Form the signal (M45, Sun, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune,
Moon and Pluto)

4) The sign describes a circle and refers to a serpent that surrounds the Earth
Shu (the Egyptian god of light)
5) Another body, the signal is linked to the May 21, 2011, could be called Planet
X - Nibiru (But do not think it is a planet)
6) confirmed the parameter 5, the body would block sunlight, turning red in the sky

Conjunction between the Sun and the Pleiades

Sun in the constellation Taurus

Appearance of the signal in the heavens

Could this phenomenon reach

Or only observe the cross?

And where did these parameters?
If you look at the manuscripts of the Essenes, there is mentioned that alignment

"And I opened the fifth seal and saw and saw the angel of life, and her lips flowed
the Holy Alliance between God and man and she knelt over the earth and gave
man the gift of creation. And man created an iron mower serpent and the harvest
gathered, was famine and death. And I turned my face in shame. "

Fragment of Essene Revelations - The Fifth Seal

In effect this alignment, is shaped like a snake and a large iron and even lawn leads
directly to the seal of Belial, that character who runs the estate of the Sons of
Darkness, and both mentioned in The Dead Sea Scrolls - War of the Sons of
Light against the Sons of Darkness
The Seal of Belial, extracted from the Infernal Dictionary of Collin Plancy.
The Sixty-eighth Spirit is Belial. He is a Mighty and a Powerful King, and was
created next after Lucifer. He appeareth in the Form of Two Beautiful Angels
sitting in a Chariot of Fire. He speaketh with a Comely Voice, and declareth that
he fell first from among the worthier sort, that were before Michael, and other
Heavenly Angels. His Office is to distribute Presentations and Senatorships,
etc.; and to cause favour of Friends and of Foes. He giveth excellent Familiars, and
governeth 50 Legions of Spirits. Note well that this King Belial must have
Offerings, Sacrifices and Gifts presented unto him by the Exorcist, or else
he will not give True Answers unto his Demands. But then he tarrieth not one hour
in the Truth, unless he be constrained by Divine Power. And his Seal is this, which
is to be worn as aforesaid, etc.

A new world order rise from the ruins following the war, famine and natural
disasters, will be established in what is now Africa and South America, will remain
in force for 7 years

Revelation 9:3-5
And the smoke of the pit came locusts upon the earth and were given power, as
have the power of scorpions of the earth. And dominion was commanded not to
harm the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree, but only those
men who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads. And it was because not kill
them, but be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a
scorpion when it strikes a man.

When these 5 months appears the figure of the lamb, their arrival will be preceded
by a signal equally in the sky.

Revelation 14:1-2 I had another vision:

The lamb stood on Mount Zion, accompanied hundred and forty-four thousand
people that bear his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads. A
murmur rumbled in the sky as the sound of flowing streams or loud thunder. It was
like a chorus of singers who sing the accompaniment of harps.
The Seal of Belial
And the special alignment of May 21, 2011
The most important part of the lineup is without a doubt the triple conjunction
between Mercury, Mars and Venus, because there supposedly would bring the
door to that other spiritual dimension that is mentioned in both the world's faiths.
Dimension to the light, but also to the spiritual darkness.

Revelation 4: 1-2 After this look: I had an open door in heaven and the voice heard
before me like a trumpet said, "Come up here and I'll show you events that will come
soon. ‖ In that moment I was seized with the Spirit and I watched this: There in
heaven was a throne placed on the throne and someone was sitting.

The meaning of the name of Yahweh, Jehovah has been interpreted in many
different forms and discuss its cultural origin. To be composed of four Hebrew
consonants-Y, M, V, H-is also called the Tetragrammaton (ie, composed of four-
letter word).
Now who is Belial?
Belial is the spirit of darkness, the angel of hostility, directed to the inheritance of
darkness (all those men contrary to God and His law)
But "did to Belial, the Angel of enmity to the grave, And chose with his aides and
his council to be the cause of evil and guilt. And all the spirits" of their inheritance
'They are angels of destruction, follow the laws of darkness, And they lead to their
The Essenes believed in the existence of fallen angels, those who were expelled
for being contrary to the law of God. In the Mazdaism is also spoken in the
beginning of the trial the chief spirit of evil, Ahriman is embodied in the serpent
Lahak and will be defeated by the Messiah (Saahyant).
3d solar vision alignment
(The alignment is a sort of circle, spiral or spiral depending on the zoom)
This is the alignment of interest, the alignment of the May 21, 2011 it is clear that
alignment leads directly to the seal of Belial as they open a doorway between the
spiritual dimension and the dimension of the body, heaven and earth, So this can
lead to a cataclysmic event, which occurs within a
7025 years - 25,000 years.
The time is difficult to calculate because of the complexity, which accounts for a
computer program to define the exact positions in the past.
Dimensional door between the spiritual world of light and darkness

The snake would allow the interaction of the beings of light and darkness between
the two dimensions, the spiritual and the body but it will bring chaos on earth and
the universe. To manifest in the body dimension the spirits of light and darkness
must take a body, enabling them to interact in the body dimension.
Lion inverted pyramid shows the possible cataclysmic event that would occur on 21
May 2011.








Today, more convincing is the idea of the emergence of a new world order following
a strong cataclysm in 2011. For many reasons, like the Mayans and Egyptians
revered the world's various faiths in the past, the Pleiades or seven sisters (M45).
The Pleiades represent the start time, the present, the future of humanity. And
activities such as harvesting, were conditioned in large part to his appearance in the
heavens. The Maya based their sacred Tzolkin calendar, in the cycle of the
Pleiades, and believed they were the birthplace of their culture, were called Tzab-
ek or Rattlesnake tail, and also known as the Seven Sisters. Even the same
Nostradamus hints at a common alignment of all beliefs, which in some way define, as
in the past, the future of civilization as we know, Nostradamus refers to a
conjunction between Mercury, Mars and Venus near the Sun and the Pleiades, the
sun was in the constellation Taurus and is based on this alignment, which will
generate the cataclysm into a new world order. On May 21, 2011, the inhabitants
of planet Earth will observe in the morning sky, a sign of great significance and
symbolism for the beliefs of the world (even for science). The phenomenon is
referred to in the scrolls of the Essenes, as the "Sword of God," "Sword of the
Essenes" or as the fifth seal. Alignment is the key to trigger a cataclysmic process,
similar to that experienced by other civilizations in the past. Some of these cultures
have left warnings to a greater or lesser degree, in manuscripts, icons and
monuments (such as the pyramids of ancient Egypt). The way connected with the
number 7, number of major importance in some of the older beliefs world.

Third Part of the Secret
(Original Text)

"J.M.J. Third part of the secret revealed on 13 July 1917 in the cave of Iria-
Fatima. I write in obedience to Thee, O God, to bid by His Excellency the Most
Reverend Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine. After
both parties have already given, we have seen to the left of Our Lady and a little
more on what an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand, flashing it gave out
flames that looked like they were going to burn the world but died out in contact
with the splendor that Our Lady radiated with his right hand towards him from the
angel pointing to the earth with his right hand, said in a loud voice: Penance,
Penance, Penance! And we saw in an immense light that is God: 'something similar
to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it' a Bishop dressed in
White 'we had a hunch that it was the Holy Father. " Other Bishops, Priests, men
and women Religious going up a steep mountain, whose summit was a big Cross of
rough like the bark of the cork tree, the Holy Father, before reaching it passed
through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain
and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on the road, reached the
top of the mountain, his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group
of soldiers who fired several gun shots and arrows, and the same way there died one
after another the other Bishops, priests and nuns and several lay people, men and
women of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there
were two Angels each with a glass pitcher in hand, in which collected the blood of
the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that are closer to God. Tuy-3-1-1944. "
The image of the Angel San Miguel, is very similar to what we refer to the
document presented by the Vatican. Angel appears holding a sword and the devil
or Satan. The angel claimed: Penance, Penance, Penance! For humanity.
Comparison of alignment of May 21, 2011 with the iconography of San Miguel
Accident or design, the name of the planet Pluto, as the planet is named after the
Roman god of the dead or the underworld. And then I found more matches, in the
Christian Revelation and the book of the Essenes are direct references to this
alignment, and it is clear, the work took to conceal or disguise these references, who
translated for the first time the Greek scripts the language of Christian Revelation
and other texts.
"Appeared in the sky a great sign: a woman clothed with the sun, the moon under
her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars. Was pregnant and cried out in
pain because her time came to give birth"
(Revelation 12: 1 - 2) (The information was altered)

"A great sign appeared in heaven. A woman clothed with the sun and the moon
under her feet and on her head a crown of seven stars. And I knew that she was the
source of the streams that flowed and the Mother of the woods. "
(Revelation of the Essenes) (The information is correct)

Indeed he is referring to an object in the sky, but there is no truth whatsoever that
has 12 stars, I believe that the translation is try to give importance to the disciples of
Jesus, but the manuscript or original text lost its essence, if the opposite is the
Apocalypse of the Essenes, in fact we find an object with 7 stars (the Pleiades - 7
sisters or whitecaps-M45-Messier 45 - "Lotus Flower").
The Pleiades are located in the constellation Taurus and the event that describes
us to a conjunction of the Sun with M45. The calculation is not difficult just typing
this in a program of astronomy and magic, leaving the date May 21, 2011 Select a
conjunction in longitude, the planet: the Sun and the deep sky object, M45, give a
range 3 years.


Surprise! The date of the triple conjunction

Many of the texts of the Bible in its original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts were
taken from Egypt. The image of the Pleiades is described in the iconography of the
god RA

Look, what looks like a key and compare it with the image of the Pleiades
The image of Kundalini in Hinduism, also presents a great similarity with the alignment
of May 21, 2011. Judge for yourself.

"A Kundalini is visualized as a rod of fire with seven flowers. The rod would represent
the spinal column and the flowers would be the magnetic fields or centers, while the
stalks symbolize the fine threads that connect our nervous with this powerful energy
fields, amounting overwhelmingly in the middle of the stick. "
And so many other images of the iconography of the different religions, beliefs, science,

The 7 Seals Essenes

(As at July 15, 2010)

1) And I opened the first seal and saw, and beheld the Angel of Air. And
between her lips flowed the breath of life. And she knelt over the earth and
gave man the winds of wisdom. And man breathed, and when he exhaled, the
space is dark and smells became smelly and foul and evil clouds appeared on
Earth. And turned my face with shame.

flowed the music of life, and he leaned over the earth and gave man the song
of peace. And Peace and Joy, as the music flowed through the minds of
men. But the man heard only the stridency of sadness and discontent and

The solar laboratory of NASA, the Solar Dynamics Observatory

(SDO, for its acronym in English) on Sunday found a rash on the sun's
surface, which exploded and blew tons of plasma (ionized atoms) in space.

In his tour of the space plasma is approaching the Earth and collide with the
north and south poles of the Earth's magnetosphere will produce a diffuse
but predominantly light projected onto the Earth's ionosphere known as
"aurora borealis."

As indicated by the astronomer Leon Golub, Harvard-Smithsonian

Center for Astrophysics (CFA), the eruption "is aimed right at us, and is
expected to arrive early on August 4. This is the first major eruption
directed toward Earth in much time. "

The rash, called a coronal mass ejection, was collected by the NASA
solar observatory that launched in February and has provided a series of
high-definition images in a variety of wavelengths."Tenemos una hermosa
vista de la erupción", dijo Golub. "Y podría haber nuevas vistas más hermosa
de venir, si se desencadenaran las auroras".

Auroras are usually only visible at high latitudes. However, during a

geomagnetic storm that generated auroras can provide illumination in the sky
at lower latitudes.

The Sun goes through regular cycles of activity and every 11 years on
average there is a peak activity period. His last solar maximum was in 2001,
so this eruption shows the sun is awakening again.

Tsunami alert in Italy by submarine volcano threat

AFP Rome .- The coasts of southern Italy are at risk of a tsunami because it can break
the walls of an underwater volcano, said Monday an Italian volcanologist. The rupture
of the walls of the volcano could cause "rapid collapse of matter, causing a strong
tsunami on the coasts of Campania, Calabria and Sicily," said Enzo Boschi, president
of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) in a interview with
the daily Il Corriere della Sera. Marsili submarine volcano, the highest in Europe, lies in
the Gulf of Naples, about 150 kilometers off the coast of Campania. "It could collapse
tomorrow. Our research detected a notable weakness of the walls of the volcano, which
contains a large amount of magma. It seems that the volcano is active and could erupt at
any moment," he said. Marsili is an imposing structure 70 km long and 30 km wide and a
height of 3,000 meters. The crater is 450 meters below the sea surface, the paper

"The breakdown of the walls would cause the movement of millions of cubic meters of
materials capable of producing a huge wave. The information is accurate but it is not
possible to forecast. The risk is real but it is difficult to assess," the expert.

2011 meteor shower worries NASA

NASA says that by October next year the Draconids, a meteor shower that occurs
every fall, will be catastrophic for the fleet of satellites, probes and human constructions
that orbit the Earth. It is expected to be bombarded with such intensity that could
seriously affect most devices that circulate through space. It will be a good show from
our homes but a dangerous avatar for satellites, according to public Neoteo, on its
website. For us, the spectacle of watching a meteor shower represents a unique
opportunity to admire the fascinating beauty of outer space. However, 2011 will
become a high-risk time for all the artifacts of human design that swarm through the orbit
of our planet. Normally, the cars are nothing more than a visual wonder for those who
admire them from the surface of the planet, but every so often, the number of meteorites
that come to us increases dramatically and can be an uncomfortable source of problems
for satellites that remain exposed to the impact of these small interstellar missiles.

In the picture you can see the location of Dacron (top left) in the sky. The timing of
meteorites lluviasde places us at the October 8, 2011, which will be the day that
Draconids fall on the planet as a shower of incendiary bullets, very nice from our
perspective as observers, but very harmful from the point of view equipment into orbit.
This meteor shower we visit every fall, but next year playing one of the fat, similar to
those occurring in 1985 and 1998. The intensity of rain is expected as strong and
could last for seven hours. NASA is already thinking about redirecting the
International Space Station to withstand the brutal onslaught that is coming. The
platform has a protective shield to prevent this type of bombing astronomical, but the
power of the next Draconids fears that it will not be enough to stop the lethal impactos
de los bólidos. William Cooke, del Centro de Vuelo Espacial Marshall de la NASA
(Huntsville, Alabama) said that experts predict a very strong burst of Draco, in the
form of a big storm and expected a peak of several hundred-space ‖ blowflies per hour.

In the image is viewed as the constellation Draco through the "Big Dipper" and "Little
Dipper." Effects of Draconids The Draconids are usually very weak but in 2011 than
ravage the space station, so fragile telescopes like the Hubble also could be affected
by the flood of killer particles to be ahead. The spacewalks also would be prohibited
until the threat from the river of rock particles has passed. For satellites, including those
that provide vital services such as communications, navigation satellite television, think
about how to weather the storm. Besides the physical danger that may cause the
bombing, electrostatic discharge can fry your vital electronic components. The chaos
that would cause this rain of meteors can be enormous. You just have to imagine what
would happen if the GPS is inoperative, non-line phones or televisions without issue.
NASA is preparing for a potentially damaging rain
Meteor in 2011

NASA is evaluating the potential risks to spacecraft posed by the upcoming

Draconid meteor shower in 2011, a seven-hour storm of tiny space rocks that could
possibly damage major Earth-orbiting spacecraft like the International Space Station.
Meteor shower risk assessment is more art than science, and some variations have been
predicted for the 2011 Draconids by meteor forecasters. Because of this, spacecraft
operators are being notified to weigh out defensive steps. Current forecast models
predict a strong Draconid storm, possibly full-blown, on October 8, 2011, according to
William Cooke of the Meteoroid Environment Office at NASA„s Marshall Space
Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Cooke confirmed that the Draconids do pose
some threats to spacecraft. Cooke and Danielle Moser of Stanley, Inc., also of
Huntsville, presented their Draconid data at Meteoroids 2010 -- an international
conference on minor bodies in the solar system held May 24-28 in Breckenridge,
Colorado. Predicted intensity rates for the 2011 storm could range from a few dozen to
several hundred per hour.
A meteoroid stream model at the Marshall Space Flight Center takes past Draconid
showers into account in predicting a maximum hourly rate, and suggests that the 2011
shower could reach several hundred per hour.
Cooke told that past strong Draconid storms of 1985 and 1998 caused
no significant electrical problems to spacecraft, but said that should not be taken lightly
with the upcoming 2011 event. Although, due to the Draconids slow speed, the chance
of electrical anomalies is relatively low, Cooke noted. Also, some spacecrafts are well
protected for such issues. The International Space Station, for example, is heavily
armored against orbital debris. ―We don„t expect anything to go wrong there,‖ said
Cooke. ―I have no concerns about the space station. Even if the Draconids were a
full-scale meteor storm I would be confident that the space station program would take
the right steps to mitigate the risk,‖ Cooke said. He noted that the crewmates on board
the ISS, however, should avoid doing any spacewalks during the event. For Hubble, if
the risk seems high enough, operators will most likely point the observatory away from
the Draconid radiant -- the point from which the shower emanates. ―Any time you take
a mitigation strategy, like changing a spacecraft's attitude or turning off high-voltage,
that incurs risk as well,‖ Cooke said. Each spacecraft is unique, and components have
differing thresholds for damage, so programs are encouraged to conduct analytical
studies to determine whether or not mitigation strategies are necessary for next year„s
Draconids. Cooke noted that the threat to spacecraft from meteor showers in the past,
such as the Leonids in 1998, produced more hype than it did impacts. ―We really
didn„t understand what was going on,‖ he added. ―Now we have a much better feel.
But the Leonids did sensitize spacecraft operators to worry about meteor showers.
Perhaps, sometimes, they worry more than they should.”
