A powerful 6.8 magnitude earthquake has shocked Morocco, sending pulses from Marrakesh to Rabat. It registered a 8.0 by the DYFI and a 8.0 on the Shakemap.
The United States Geological Survey estimates that the epicentre of the quake was approximately 72 kilometres from Marrakesh, the fourth largest city in the country.
The earthquake struck late Friday evening, with the epicentre 72 kilometres west of Marrekesh, a major economic centre.
SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. — An earthquake with 5.0 magnitude struck Northern California in Shasta County Friday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake hit at 10:24 a.m. and was measured at a depth of over 9 miles.
It hit the area of Fall River Mills, which is about 70 miles Northeast of Redding.
No injuries have been reported.
What the Bible says about Morocco
(From Forerunner Commentary)
The nations listed in Psalm 83:5-8 comprise a fairly complete rundown of the ancient enemies of Israel, and Edom, the descendants of Esau, is given primacy of place. After Edom come the usual suspects: the Ishmaelites, Moab, the Hagarites, Gebal, Ammon, Amalek, Philistia, and Tyre; and Assyria joins them, specifically helping the children of Lot.
Descendants of Esau actually appear three times on this list, as Amalek (see Genesis 36:12) and Gebal (here, a region of Idumea, often confused with the Phoenician city of Gebal or Byblos) are tribes that became distinguished from the bulk of the Edomites. Evidently, these tribes struck out on their own and eventually established their own identities. Amalek, in particular, was a thorn in Israel’s side.
Bible history, from about Genesis 16 on, records that all of these nations rose up against Israel and Judah perpetually. Only very rarely did they ally with Israel for any length of time, and when they did, it was usually because they faced an even stronger, more dreaded enemy. It seems that Israel had peace from them only when they were conquered and put under tribute.
The only major nations missing from this list of Israel’s persistent enemies are Egypt and Babylon. There may be several reasons for their omission. First, the context speaks of a particular historical “confederacy” against Israel, and Egypt and Babylon may not have been part of it. Second, as major powers in the region, Egypt and Babylon were generally unconcerned about Israel, or at least did not posses the visceral hatred of God’s people that these other nations did. Third, the peoples that are mentioned were either ethnically related to Israel or lived in close proximity to her, while Egypt and Babylon are not related to Israel and inhabited distant realms.
Finally, as a prophecy of the last days, Psalm 83 may not consider Egypt and Babylon to represent the physical peoples that they did anciently. In fact, a physical Babylon does not seem to exist in the end time; the ancient city lies in ruins for tourists in Iraq to behold. If Egypt, a modern Arab nation, is contemplated in the prophecy, it may be included under the Hagarites, as Hagar, mother of Ishmael, was an Egyptian (Genesis 16:1). In addition, Ishmael’s wife was also Egyptian (Genesis 21:21), making the Ishmaelites three-quarters Egyptian.
Nevertheless, all of these different peoples—Edom, Ishmael, Amalek, Moab, Ammon, Philistia, Tyre, and Assyria—are among the major players in the Middle East today. These are peoples from whom the Jihadists and the Islamic fundamentalists hail, making up what is known as the “Arab” or “Muslim world.” Today, these people inhabit the nations of Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Sudan, Morocco, Tunisia, etc., and the pseudo-nation of Palestine.
Psalm 83 lists a group of peoples—a confederacy—whose main enemy is Israel. Today, there exists a worldwide jihad against the West, particularly aimed at the “great satan,” the United States, and the despised Jews, the State of Israel. The physical descendants of ancient Israel—the English-speaking peoples, the democracies of Northwest Europe, and the Jewish Diaspora—are the standard-bearers of Western civilization. The same players are still in the game!
Who has initiated the conflict over these last several years? For the most part, Islamist or fundamentalist Arabs have been the aggressors. The terrorists have mainly come from Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, North Africa, Iraq, etc.—that is, Arab nations. The philosophical or religious underpinnings for these attacks have their source in the virulent and violent anti-Western teachings of Wahhabism (spread from Saudi Arabia), militant pan-Arab socialism (cultivated by despots in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, etc.), and anti-Semitism (practiced hypocritically by a majority of Arabs, who are themselves Semitic peoples, descendants of Abraham).
Where have most of the attacks taken place? Although many of them have occurred in the Middle East, they have been predominantly against Western interests. Terror organizations have targeted Western people, planes, helicopters, ships, homes, shops, hotels, and embassies—anything Western seems to be fair game to them.
For example, the bombing in Beirut against a U.S. military installation in 1983 killed hundreds of Marines in their barracks, and jihadists attacked the U.S. mainland on September 11, 2001. The State of Israel, of course, has endured a heavy share of the militant Islamic violence since its founding in 1948. More recently, Britain, Australia, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, and other predominantly Israelite nations have also suffered terrorist atrocities. This in no way discounts the terrorism that has also struck non-Israelite but Western nations like Spain and Italy.
Putting Psalm 83 together with what we know about these nations’ ancestries and with what we see on the evening news, these prophecies are coming to pass before our eyes!
There are countless Native American legends describing prehistoric giants, flood myths, lost civilizations, cataclysms, the star people, and other mysterious beings who belonged to some remote and forgotten era in California’s past, suggesting a radically different chronology and ancient history than what is generally known today.
Lucy Thompson wrote about prehistoric giants and other mysterious beings who inhabited the Pacific coast in ancient times—among them the Wa-Gas (designated as Woge, Woga, or even “Little People” or the “Star People” in other variations of the legend).
Thomas Buckely, a recognized expert on Yurok spirituality ( Standing Ground: Yurok Indian Spirituality, 1850-1990 ), states that Lucy—fearful of being misunderstood by a powerful and still-dangerous white audience—filtered ancient Yurok traditions through a lens of Biblical and Masonic imagery with the help of her husband, which appears to have been both a precaution to avoid persecution, and also a strategy to make the book more sympathetic and comprehensible to a largely white audience.
Much of the prehistoric lore Lucy Thompson talks about in To The American Indian can also be found, under various guises, in the traditions of other northwestern tribes.
The Ancient Woga
There are many northwestern traditions which talk about a race of giants dwelling in the remote mountains of northern California, and also a mysterious spirit-people, the “Woga,” who inhabited these lands in ancient times and then mysteriously vanished.
In some traditions, the Woga were said to have left for the heavens from the sacred high country (presumably mountaintops) but a number of them chose to remain behind here on Earth and serve as stewards of the land and conduits to the spirit world. The Wogas resided in sacred natural dwellings which were viewed as portals to another realm through which they could pass back and forth.
“In prehistoric lore natural features of the landcape were sometimes described as places where the Woge dwelled. This basaltic facade gives the impression of a ‘false doorway’ entering a massive rock edifice. Sometimes these kinds of unusual geological structures are associated with portals that lead into other realms.” Photograph © Dustin Naef 2016
There are few subjects which are attacked with more fanaticism than Native American legends, or more generally non-Western accounts of pre-history.
Native-authored books such as Vine Deloria Jr’s Red Earth, White Lies (1997) and Ardy Sixkiller Clarke’s Encounters With Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians (2012), unquestionably make plain that prehistoric giants, lost civilizations, cataclysms, and the Star People encompass a far-reaching cosmology that embodies the traditions and pre-history of North America in very ancient times.

Unsurprisingly, many scholars reject these traditions outright, dismissing them as evidence of cultural contamination and Native American appropriation of modern science-fiction motifs and Biblical stories, as a consequence of centuries of contact with Europeans—rather than acknowledging them as independent eyewitness observations of a forgotten history which was globally-situated in scale.
