Earthquakes Will Increase...Jesus Christ
Can anyone doubt that we are in the End Times? All you have to do is look at the morning headlines and it is obvious. There have been countless major earthquakes in Haiti, Chili, Taiwan,Turkey,Baja Mexico including California, Japan and even in New York City! Most recently is the earthquake in Napa, California. All of these earthquakes were major quakes. It is recorded in three of the four gospels that earthquakes will increase before the second coming of Christ. In Matthew 24: 7 and 8 it says:
Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Mat 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
In Luke 21:10 & 11 Jesus says: Then said he unto them:
Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
Nation has already risen against nation in two world wars, and the unending war against terror. Now earthquakes are starting to increase, I guess the next thing to look for is the signs from heaven.
In fact, the number of earthquakes have gone up exponentially in the past 100 years. The chart below shows just that.
Prophecies were given to us by God as a testimony of who God is and to encourage us to turn from our own ways and submit to God's. God says in Isaiah:
Isa 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
Isa 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
Isa 46:11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
Isa 46:12 Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:
Isa 46:13 I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.
I can only hope and pray that for your own sake that you will not ignore the counsel of God. I wrote another hub about 15 End Time prophecies that have happened and 5 that will if you are interested in other prophecies.

In Second Thessalonians it says:
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
I implore you to love the truth and be not deceived while there is still time. The increase in earthquakes is just one of many signs and prophecies that the Bible has that points to this being the "End Times" right before Jesus returns. More and more prophecies will be fulfilled. The question is will you ignore the warnings that God has given you or will you repent and follow Jesus Christ while you still have time. The answer to that question is the most important answer you will ever decide.
