This is the Second Coming Watch Weekend Roundup for April 5, 2014. On the Roundup we feature the top 10 prophecy-related news stories that happened this past week which point towards the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the end of the world as we know it.
1. Ecuador’s Tungurahua volcano erupted on Friday, spewing a huge column of molten rock and ash which surged six miles above the volcano’s crater following two strong explosions. The Geophysical Institute of Ecuador’s National Polytechnic School is monitoring the situation, as tremors are ongoing.
2. According to Reuters, Japan said it will strike any North Korean ballistic missile that threatens to hit the country in the coming weeks after Pyongyang recently fired medium-range missiles.
3. According to Reuters, the United States has criticized proposals to build a European communication network to avoid emails and other data passing through the United States, warning that such rules could breach international trade laws. There are calls in Europe for a local communications network following revelations last year about U.S. digital eavesdropping and surveillance. Germany and France have been discussing ways to build a European network to keep data secure after the U.S. spying scandal.
4. According to Reuters, Iran and six world powers began an expert-level meeting about Tehran's nuclear program on Thursday, part of efforts to reach an agreement by late July on how to resolve a decade-old dispute that has stirred fears of a Middle East war.
5. According to the Associated Press, in Venezuela, the government is rolling out a new ID system that is either a grocery loyalty card with extra muscle or the most dramatic step yet toward rationing, depending on who is describing it. Registration began this week at more than 100 government-run supermarkets across the country.
