THE FIERY END OF THE WORLD

II Peter 3:10
The recent eruption of Mt. St. Helens in southwest

or animal life left. Many people in the area lost
their lives and many have never been found, having
disappeared in the holocaust. Utter desolation is
everywhere. Volcanic ash turned distant cities into
darkness at noontime. Ash from molten magma was hurled
up through a vent and out of the exploding top of the
mountain. A volcano cone is simply a cap on God's
plumbing, which holds back the fiery molten flow of
rock in the earth, which is released with tremendous
force. The explosion in this case was set off by an
earthquake. Volcanic mountains are all over this area
and many othe ...
