Japan in trouble -Apostle Amoako Attah at 31st Night
According to the prophetic words of Apostle Francis Amoako Attah, Japan is facing a dire situation.The prophecy delivered by the esteemed seer on December 31st is beginning to unfold, and Japan has become the first nation to see it come to pass. During the 31st Night Service, Apostle Amoako Attah recounted an incident he experienced when leaving his room and stepping into his compound. He vividly saw an earthquake before him, a sight that struck fear into his heart. He warned that numerous nations, including America, China, and Europe, are also in trouble. For the period from January 1 to March 11, 2024, he predicted a series of disasters, including plane crashes and other calamities.
Sadly, his foretellings about Japan turned out to be true. On New Year’s Day, a powerful earthquake struck, claiming the lives of at least 55 people. Rescue teams are currently braving freezing temperatures to reach coastal areas, fearing that many more are trapped beneath the rubble of their destroyed homes. The once peaceful town of Suzu, with its 5,000 households, has suffered unimaginable devastation, with approximately 90% of the houses destroyed.
This earthquake, which initially measured a magnitude of 7.6, caused massive tsunamis, submerging cars and houses. The Japan Meteorological Agency has detected around 200 tremors since the initial quake, indicating the possibility of further strong shocks in the days ahead. Tragically, another mishap occurred when a Coast Guard aircraft en route to deliver aid collided with a commercial airplane at Haneda airport, resulting in the tragic deaths of five Coast Guard personnel. Thankfully, all 379 passengers on board the Japan Airlines flight escaped unharmed. The situation in Japan is widely deemed as catastrophic.
Earthquakes in Japan leave at least 62 dead, others trapped
Western Japan was struck by a series of strong earthquakes that resulted in the deaths of at least 62 people. Rescue teams were working tirelessly to save those who were trapped under the collapsed buildings. Even after two days, aftershocks continued to shake the Ishikawa prefecture and nearby areas. The first 72 hours are crucial in such situations for saving lives.
Basic necessities like water, power, and cell phone service remained unavailable in some areas, leaving residents uncertain about their future. Miki Kobayashi, an Ishikawa resident, expressed her despair as she observed the damage to her home and realized that it may no longer be livable. This was not the first time the house had been damaged, as it had also suffered during a quake in 2007.
The Ishikawa Prefectural authorities reported that 29 deaths occurred in Wajima city and 22 in Suzu. Several people were severely injured in nearby prefectures as well. However, through prompt public warnings and quick responses from the public and officials, some of the damages were mitigated. Toshitaka Katada, a professor specializing in disasters, pointed out Japan’s preparedness due to previous earthquake experiences.
Evacuation plans and emergency supplies played a critical role in reducing the impact. Japan, being strategically located along the “Ring of Fire,” is frequently affected by earthquakes. Katada warned that the situation remained unpredictable and precarious, citing past incidents where scientific predictions failed. Japanese media footage showed extensive damage, including landslides, sinking ships, and fires in Wajima city.
In response to the disaster, Japan’s military deployed 1,000 soldiers to aid in rescue efforts. Despite the tragic event, nuclear regulators assured the public that the nuclear plants in the region were operating normally. The Japan Meteorological Agency issued tsunami warnings, which were later downgraded and eventually lifted. However, the aftermath included flooded coastlines and concerns about building and infrastructure stability.
Evacuated individuals sought temporary shelter in auditoriums, schools, and community centers. Although bullet train services were temporarily halted, they were gradually restored. Weather forecasters predicted rain, increasing anxiety over potential further damage. The affected region boasts significant cultural heritage sites and is renowned for traditional crafts like lacquerware. International leaders, including Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and President Joe Biden, expressed their solidarity and offered support and assistance to Japan.
