How Will the Ship Get “Unstuck”?
So, now what? The key to “unstucking” the Ever Given will be lightening the ship’s load. One way to do that is to empty the ballast tanks. That solution, however, could destabilize the ship, Captain Morgan McManus, Master, Empire State VI, of SUNY Maritime College, tells Pop Mech. Another option would be to unload the ship’s cargo, but that could prove difficult without the necessary equipment readily available.
“In the middle of the Suez Canal, there’s no infrastructure for that, so that would mean getting a crane barge alongside and then taking those boxes off one at a time,” says McManus. With a ship as big as the Ever Given, the effort could take weeks.
Suez Canal Container Ship Crash Is A “Worst-Case Scenario” For Global Trade
Authored by Rory Hopcraft, Kevin Jones, and Kimberley Tam via TheConversation.com,
It’s estimated that 90% of the world’s trade is transported by sea. As consumers, we rarely give much thought to how the things we buy make their way across the planet and into our homes.
That is, until an incident like the recent grounding of a huge container ship, the Ever Given, in the Suez Canal exposes the weaknesses in this global system.

The mammoth ship is 400 meters long, 60 meters wide and holds up to 20,000 containers. On 23 March the MV Ever Given ran aground south of the strait and it could take “weeks” to remove it. 12% of world trade circulates in the area and the circumnavigation of Africa takes 12 days and 2,500 miles longer than the traditional route.

God is certainly attempting to warn mankind.
Everything is being driving to the breaking point. But these are just warning signs before the judgment signs.
In one hour whether it be banking, freedoms or shipping all is going to come to a halt in one hour.
Pray for the Christians to repent because they are not ready on any level for the testing that is starting to take place. The Christian church has not come out from Babylon and separated itself. Doctrines are sloppy, spiritual lives are flabby and the oil is tainted.
After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Mix her a double portion from her own cup. Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, ‘I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.’ Therefore in [highls background=”#030303″ color=”#ffffff”]one day [/highls]her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.
“When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her. Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: ” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In [highls background=”#030303″ color=”#ffffff”]one hour[/highls] your doom has come!’ “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes any more– cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble; cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and bodies and souls of men. “They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your riches and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’
The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn and cry out: ” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! In [highls background=”#030303″ color=”#ffffff”]one hour[/highls] such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’ “Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea, will stand far off.
When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?’ They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: ” ‘Woe! Woe, O great city, where all who had[highls background=”#030303″ color=”#ffffff”] ships on the sea[/highls] became rich through her wealth! In [highls background=”#030303″ color=”#ffffff”]one hour[/highls] she has been brought to ruin! (Revelation 18:1-19)
