I don't really know much about volcanoes. Are fissures a good thing in general or are they a bad sign? Do they allow pressure to be released or are they something that happen before a major eruption?
From what I understand, it's actually a bad thing. While it may seem that the fissures are relieving pressure (and they are), the problem is that lava is draining out of the main volcano down under the surrounding land. The fissures are just indicating that pressure is building. As the lava level drops, large chunks of rock inside the cone are breaking off the outer rim and they can can block up the cone. Lava heats the ground water creating steam and the pressure builds up and the blockage results in an eruption hurling those giant rocks into the air. What goes up must come down. Some rocks can be as large as a refrigerator and weigh 10,000 lbs. You don't ant to be anywhere near this thing if that happens.
Also, in this case, the fissures seem to be slicing through the east edge of the island. Kind of like a tear parallel to the coastline. At some point, the far east edge may just break off, fall into the ocean and create an enormous tsunami. I heard it has the potential to create a wave 1000 feet high. Yowza.
Just learning this stuff myself and this is what I think I have gleaned from the experts.
Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” John 6:29
Just a personal and anecdotal observation...there was a big uptick in earthquakes in Hawaii today compared to the last few days when the frequency was slowing. Not much about it in the news, but this is still a very serious event.
Edit: 100 EQ's in Hawaii in the past 24 hours @ 2:30 ET 5/25. That's a serious increase over a couple days ago.
mike: Bernie - terrible if true, yet not surprising. Isnt this what the Lord tells us in Rev 13:7, 15, 6:11, 20:4 - why should you or I be exempt from this? Did the Lord rapture those burned at the stake? Or save the apostles from being murdered for their faith?

nana: I have heard about the guillotines for a decade or so. It was bush that signed the Noahide law 03/20/1991 Became Public Law No: 102-14. Beheading is part of the Noahide law..

mike: when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws; Whereas without these ethical values and principles the edifice of civilization stands in serious peril of returning to chaos; <--very provocative!

bernie: I have no idea how reliable the source is, it sounds crazy, but this is 2020 and crazy seems to be the new normal.

EnochWalked: The problem with many laws is not the supposed lofty aims and ethical values behind them, but who gets to decide how they are interpreted and applied (whether that's the Sanhedrin or the SCOTUS). Our answer: "Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?"

EnochWalked: I can't help being reminded of: "Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction," 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (ESV)

EnochWalked: over 2500 years ago – and through some of the oldest parts of the ancient city." Hmmm. Something seems very suspicious about this. Crossing over a cemetery without touching the ground? Is there some symbolism or prophecy or ritual law being fulfilled?
