Wow, what a day yesterday. The planet was rockin and rollin when an 8.6 then an 8.2 quake hit just west of Indonesia, then on the other side of the planet a 5.9 (originally 6.2) quake hit the coast off of Oregon a 5.3 off of California and a 6.5 hit the west coast of Mexico. Then I wake up to find a 6.9 and a 6.2 hit in the Gulf of California after I went to bed. Now a 4.5 off the New England coast. Clearly, there’s a whole lota shakin goin on.
I note that all the earthquakes, almost without exception get downgraded from their original reporting, why is that? Is there shaking going on in the USGS offices? If they were to leave the original reporting numbers over the last couple years their “normal” numbers charts would blow right off the wall. I remember reading, recently, their response to the frequency of quakes as normal, that there are literally over a million quakes a year worldwide. Funny, but a same type statement less than a decade ago reported “normal” as hundreds of thousands worldwide.
What’s the catch? Why does the agency responsible for reporting “real” numbers feel the need to cover up reality. Why change these numbers from 8 to 7 and 7 to 6, 6 to 5, etc. Are they shaking in their boots looking at the reality that earthquakes are increasing in number and intensity? Is there some inexplicable reason that they won’t recognize or that they feel the need or are ordered to cover up? In reality these things and times were prophesied long, long ago.
Jesus said, over 2000 years ago MT 24:7, that there would be earthquakes and that these are the beginning of the birth pangs. And like birth pangs we will see an increase in intensity and frequency. For our USGS to admit to increased frequency and intensity would be to admit to something not normal and add credence to the words spoken by Jesus and the prophets.
Jesus warns us in Mt 24:32-34 to take the lesson from the fig tree. When the twigs get tender and the leaves come out you know that summer is near. Likewise, this year, the sap is running and the trees are budding many weeks early, coincident with this earthquake run. The signs are true.
What about you. Are you one that is shaking? Are you avoiding or ignoring the prophecies for this end time. Are you telling yourself, this has happened before or this is normal? Have you not received Christ and, as such, pretending that these events are not happening? You can’t afford to hide from the truth. Look at the trees, the time is short, soon you will no longer have the opportunity to receive the gift from God. Seek Him now, come to grip with your sin and ask Him to cover it with the Blood of His Son, accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord. Ask Him into your heart today.
Or are you a Christian? Are you, too, ignoring these things? Did you get on the bandwagon once before only to find you didn’t get raptured away? Rejoice in God’s grace that He allowed just a little more time. But, stop your shaking now. Get your spiritual house in order. You don’t want to be like the 5 foolish virgins and be found unprepared and left behind….
