    A hole in the ground that's been burning for 50 years.......STRANGE!

    A hole in the ground that has been burning and burning and burning….for the past 40 years. They call it ‘The Gateway to Hell’. Strange…that’s all I can say.

    My favorite scripture: Malachi 3:16

    "Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name!" (Every time we speak of the Lord, or even THINK of him--its written down in a book of remembrance!)

    Today's technology uses fracturing of shale that releases natural gas. The commercial on TV says, America is the number 1 natural gas producer in the world.

    The fire is just burning up someone's heat during the winter.

    Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. John 20:29


    Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Cor 3:16

    This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12

    Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. Ps 34:19

    That is strange. It looks like a volcano.

    I have heard of a coal mine (abandon of course) that has been burning for over 100 years.

    It’s basically a good sized pit in the ground but not an open hole down to the gas source. The natural gas is seeping up through the soil to burn much like a pilot light does. The burning is only where the gas meets the air and is mixed properly to correctly burn. So it is only burning on the surface of the ground in the pit.

    They could put it out if they wanted to but they would still have to cap it somehow it keep the gas from coming out of the ground as just burying it will still allow the gas to seep up. They would have to siphon the gas off as it comes up. Otherwise if the fire were put out and the gas fumes not contained it would create a huge gas cloud that could travel and ignite somewhere with unpleasant results.

    Burning it in place was the safest thing to do at the time.

    And through the storm yet I will praise you
    Despite it all yet I will sing
    Through good or bad yet I will worship
    You remain the same, King of Kings

    You are the voice of hope; the anchor of my soul
    Where there seems to be no way, you make it possible
    You are the Prince of Peace amidst adversity
    My lips will shout for joy to you the Most High.
