A Biblical Perspective on Why Earthquakes Have Increased Lately
Over the last few years, there has been a huge increase in earthquakes all over the world. The state of Oklahoma, which is known for getting tornadoes, has been bombarded with earthquakes almost on a daily basis in the past year.
Scientists are scratching their heads trying to figure out this mystery. Yes, there has always been seismic activity, but no one can deny that earthquakes have increased in frequency and also in magnitude lately.
I would like to take a look at this from a Biblical perspective. In the Bible, Jesus said that one of the signs of His return would be an increase in earthquakes. Mark 13:8 states that “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.”
I have no doubt in my mind that this is the reason for the increase that we’ve been seeing. Christians know that we are living in the last days before Jesus returns to gather up His followers to heaven.
After Jesus returns, according to the Bible, earthquakes will be even more intense. This period that the Bible describes is called the Tribulation.
You can avoid the tribulation by accepting Jesus as your Savior now and repenting of your sins. It’s going to be the worst time to live. Jesus promised His followers that we are not appointed unto wrath, so that’s why He will come in the clouds and take His people to heaven first. Just say this prayer: Jesus, I ask you to come into my heart and to be my Savior. I repent of my sins and want to live for you the rest of my days on earth. Thank you for dying on the Cross for my sins so I can have eternal life with you.
What we are seeing now happening in the world, is nothing at all compared to what’s coming. If you think the earthquakes, the wars, famine and pestilences are intense now, they are going to get a lot worse. You haven’t seen anything yet and hopefully if you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, you will escape these things like the rest of us. Make your decision to follow Jesus now, before it’s too late. He is about to return for His followers. All the signs that He told us to look out for, are now happening.
