Norway is going to build a £30bn submerged road tunnel under a fjord

By Ross McGuinness |Yahoo News|

Norway is planning to build a submerged road tunnel underneath a fjord. The ambitious project, which will cost £30 billion, will mean the construction of huge cylinders to carry cars under the body of water.

The tunnel will have two tubes for each direction of traffic and they will be anchored to both sides of the Sognefjord inlet.

The floating tubes will be attached to pontoons spaced about 800ft apart.

Because the fjord is 4,000ft deep, engineers are unable to dig a tunnel beneath it.

They have opted for a floating tunnel that will be suspended about 100ft under the surface of the water.

This will be deep enough for ships to pass over the tunnel, and will also allow room for passing submarines below.

The goal of the tunnel is to halve the driving time on one of Norway’s main roads, the E39, which runs for nearly 700 miles from Trondheim in the north to Kristiansand in the south.

At the moment, the road is broken up seven times by fjords, meaning motorists must put their cars on ferries to cross.

“It’s nearly 1,100km from end to end – but the journey takes 21 hours on a good day, because of the seven ferry crossings en route,” said Kjersti Kvalheim Dunham, programme manager for Norway’s Public Roads Administration.

“By 2035 we should have cut that to 11 hours by replacing the ferries with fixed crossings.”

The project is not expected to be completed until 2050.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
