As we concluded the month of October moving into November, Peru, in South America, was struck with an earthquake on October 31, 1987 closing the month with the earth shaking and trembling beneath our feet in diverse places. This earthquake activity now taking place throughout the world signals earth’s changes into a new geological age–signaling a new change in the geopolitical structure of present world governments giving way to the new.

Later in this article, I will attempt to explain some of the reasons for this worldwide phenomenon of increasing earth geological changes and what it signals to the world as recorded in the chronological histories of many indigenous peoples throughout our planet.

and major inside story to another geological phenomenon taking place above our heads in the atmosphere that we breathe.   I am speaking of that layer of air in the stratosphere called the ozone layer.   According to a scientific report appearing in the Mexico City News (Journal), the ozone layer is above 10 miles in the atmosphere reaching a height of 12 miles.   This thinning of the ozone layer was first discovered by NASA flight engineers, flying over the Antarctic (South Pole) in 1983.

The threat to our health is even greater today by this literally deepening hole in the ozone layer without which we have no natural defenses against bombardment of harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun. We might also note that at the turn of the 1980’s, sunspot activity on the surface of the sun peaked.

There are many powerful spiritual connections to the above scientific discovery reported in Time magazine article entitled, “Environment:   Earth’s Changing Climate and the Ozone Layer.”

The October 19 issue of Time magazine devoted its front cover First of all, the stratosphere measurements from above 10 miles to another 30 miles, making a total height of 40 miles. Spiritually, these figures translate into vital facts given to us to study from the Divine Teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad.   It is written in “Message to the Black Man in America,” that Master Fard Muhammad so loved our Lost and Found people scattered in the West, that he would eat rattlesnakes and walk 40 miles up a mountain just to teach one of us.

This statement has such far-reaching significance that I cannot summarize its meaning in a word or in a few sentences. However, this statement brings to mind the snake-like poisonous nature of our open enemies, the devils who oppose the righteous.   This symbolized in the Bible’s character of the serpent-like dragon of Revelation who makes war against the remnant of the woman’s seed, symbolic of Allah’s last messenger who rises up in the Judgement, with his followers, who are to be redeemed by God, Himself.
