Are Earthquakes a Sign of the End of Time?

Earthquakes are on our minds these days as we see the results of two very devastating and recent earthquakes on the news. There is alot of seismic activity going on these days. Yes, there have always been lots of earthquakes, but there appear to be more recently, they have been very close together and severe.

The Bible speaks of earthquakes happening in diverse, (different), places when the end of time is approaching. It has many other warnings also, but specifically, it speaks of earthquakes. Matthew 24:7, Mark 13:8, and Luke 21:11, to be specific, are passages in the Bible that speak of earthquakes in reference to the end of time.

Luke 21:11, clearly says there will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences, in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

Many people and religions believe this to be true. I certainly do, and the proof to us is there are many things happening today that were foretold long ago in the scriptures of the Bible. To me, that makes it very believable!

The earth is a moving, shaking, planet. It is interesting to study the seismic activity of today. I live in a major earthquake zone, the New Madrid Faultline. I certainly am aware of the possibility of an earthquake in my area of the country.

Since the horrors we have seen in Haiti and Chile of the devastation and calamity of earthquakes, I think more people want to be aware of the possibilities of future events. The news medias are frantically asking the scientific neighborhood if they can give the predictions of earthquakes. With the modern technology at hand the is no specific predictions of exactly where an earthquake will happen next, only guesstimates.

Although earthquake predicting is not an exact science. We can all be prepared in the event that an earthquake may happen where we live. That is the best we can do. We can also reach out to others who are experiencing the devastation of an earthquake.

The Bible tells us what to expect when we are approaching the end of time as we know it. I am glad that God has given us such a guide to follow and is merciful to help us in times like these.

We can prepare both spiritually and physically for the times of catastrophes, such as earthquakes. We all may have to experience difficult times ahead. God doesn't say we will escape all troubles or calamities, but He does say He will be there for us and help us through them.

I encourage you to read the Bible and learn what God says about future events, such as earthquakes, that will happen as the end of time approaches. Yes, earthquakes in different places are a sign of the end of times.
