Many of us today presumed for years that natural disasters such as earthquakes were regionalized or confined based on geography; that is, earthquakes occurring only on the West Coast, affecting such places as California and other specific regions. However, recently we have witnessed as earthquakes are proving to defy presupposed boundaries and restrictions based upon geographical locations, as underground fault lines are now being discovered all over the world.
Jesus WARNED us of such occurrences in the Holy Scriptures. In the Gospel of St. Matthew 24:7, Jesus prophesied and spoke of the very things we are currently witnessing, and NOW with even greater frequency TODAY. He says, "nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be FAMINES, and PESTILENCES, and EARTHQUAKES, in several and various places."
So what does it all mean...the increase in wars, the gross famines, escalation of disease and plagues, and the frequency of earthquakes? Well according to the Bible, it is the indicator light that we are nearing or very close to the time of Jesus' return (read entire Chapter Matthew 24). So how do I know? Well even Jesus' disciples asked prior to the above prediction in Matthew 24:30, "Tell us what shall be the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world?"
