Last night we experienced a significant magnitude earthquake, 7.1. Alaska earthquakes are usually not a big deal because they happen every day. This one was strong and lasted awhile.
Earthquakes are a sign of the end times. Mark 13:7-8 states, “7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.”
The disciples wanted to know when and what will be the signs. Luke 21:7 states, “7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?” Jesus answers in verse 11 by saying, “11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”
The things listed in Mark and Luke are happening every day, all over our planet. The next event on the prophetic calendar is the rapture of the church. “16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)
So for believers in Jesus Christ, earthquakes are a sign of the times.
JESUS IS COMING SOON!
