As I scanned the USGS earthquake map this morning I noticed something very strange and unusual, three large, greater than magnitude 6.0, earthquakes across the globe! There were also several in the magnitude 5.0 and greater range.
It’s not unusual for us to see magnitude 6.0 earthquakes these days, however, three in one day, and five of magnitude 5.0 or greater is not only unusual but very eye-opening! And there are many more in the range of 4.0 to 5.0 in magnitude. Keep in mind that these all occurred today.

Could these earthquakes be a sign that Jesus warned us about in the end times, the times just before His second coming? And if they are, then just how close are we?!
“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
We’ve not only seen an increase in the frequency and size of earthquakes, but also in volcanic eruptions and many other natural disasters across the globe recently including famines and pestilences.
This is no time to slumber or sleep, it is a time to be wide awake, to watch and be ready. Do not fear the world or what may soon come upon it, but fear Him who has the power to kill and cast into hell!
“But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!”
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
