On June 1, 2016, 17 years after the first blast in the main shaft, the world’s longest railway tunnel officially opened.
“And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.” Revelation 9:2 (KJV)
First we will give you the facts and figures, then the spiritual implications of this incredible spectacle. We have seen lots of wacky end times stuff in the 7 years we have been running NTEB, but this is truly off the charts.
The Gotthard Base Tunnel is a railway base tunnel through the Alps in Switzerland. It opened on 1 June 2016 with full service to begin in December 2016. With a route length of 57.09 km (35.5 mi) and a total of 151.84 km (94.3 mi) of tunnels, shafts and passages, it is the world’s longest and deepest traffic tunnel and the first flat, low-level route through the Alps. The Gotthard Base Tunnel is, with a length of 57.09 kilometres (35.47 mi), the longest railway tunnel in the world, with a geodetic distance of 55.782 kilometres (34.661 mi) between the two portals. It is also the first flat route through the Alps or any other major mountain range, with a maximum height of 549 metres (1,801 ft) above sea level. It is, therefore, the deepest railway tunnel in the world, with a maximum depth of approximately 2,300 metres (7,500 ft), comparable to that of the deepest mines on Earth. Without ventilation, the temperature inside the mountain reaches 46 °C (115 °F).
To celebrate the momentous occasion, Switzerland invited guests of honor from Switzerland and abroad to a very strange opening ceremony. What they saw was a parade of zombie mine workers, fallen winged angels torturing lost souls, and an endless cavalcade of demonic images and references. And all this at a high-level corporate event! This was not some bohemian art show on a street corner, this was produced and put on by the billionaire, global, ruling elite.
And they are sending you a message….
So why on earth would the builders of the world’s largest and deepest tunnel want you to associate it with death, zombies and the Devil? Because the forces that inhabit that God-forsaken underworld are preparing to come up top to the surface during the time of Jacob’s trouble after the Rapture of the Church.
We are watching an unsaved world preparing itself to go through the time of the Great Tribulation where the supernatural will once again be visibly and physically evident. Everywhere you look, the unsaved are becoming more and more obsessed with satanism, the occult, zombies and darkness.
That is the time that’s coming, get saved and avoid the whole, stinking mess.
Are you ready for what comes next?
