Earthquakes in Various Places – More Signs of the Times, or merely Coincidence?!

USGS earthquake map – September 14, 2017

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Earthquake swarms continue in Southern Mexico on a daily basis since the 8.2 magnitude quake struck one week ago today on September 7th of 2017.

Not only does earthquake activity seem to be increasing, but earthquakes are occurring in places where they are not usually seen, such as Montana, Idaho, and Virginia.  Take it as you will, but I take it as bible prophecy coming to pass!  Signs that Jesus Christ Himself told us to watch for just before His second coming.

M 3.2 – 12km SE of Lincoln, Montana

Time: Location: 46.879°N 112.565°W;    Depth: 10.6 km


M 4.0 – 19km SE of Soda Springs, Idaho

Time: Location: 42.510°N 111.462°W;    Depth: 5.0 km


M 3.2 – 7km ENE of Harper, Kansas

Time: Location: 37.310°N 97.941°W;    Depth: 5.0 km


M 3.1 – 14km NNE of Pearisburg, Virginia

Time: Location: 37.473°N 80.705°W;    Depth: 18.5 km


It seems that earthquake activity around the world is heating up.

When you put all of these earthquakes together with the storms of biblical proportions, massive wild fires, wars and threats of wars, the decline of society, and the increased persecution of Christians and Jews, then it all makes sense and comes into perspective, a biblical perspective.

We must also take into consideration strange signs which we have seen over the past decade such as blood-red waters, unusual and strange sounds, meteor strikes upon the earth, massive solar flares, mass animal deaths, deadly diseases, massive sink holes, and the collapse of bridges one after another it would seem, all occurring without any real explanations from the world, but with many assumptions and speculations at best.  And even if they could explain these occurrences away with scientific methods, why are they all happening now and at the same time?!

And if all of these things were not enough I haven’t even mentioned Islam and the world-wide terror network that it is imposing upon the world!  The massive migration of Islam throughout the world, not for the sake of peace, but for the sake of control, submission, force, and domination!  To instill Sharia law throughout the world and force people to either convert to Islam or die!

Nor did I mention the “new norm” to accept and tolerate everything and if you don’t then you are labeled a hater!  Has anyone noticed increased homosexuality and other sexual perversions in the world lately?  And what about small children unsure of what sex they were created to be?  People being able to use whatever bathroom they desire depending upon what sex they feel like on that particular day!  Does anyone else find this not only very strange but eerily bizarre?!  Isn’t it awfully strange that all of this is taking place now with all of these other signs at the same time?!

Another sign of societal breakdown is the division that we see in the streets around the world.  People supposedly protesting “peacefully” actually becoming violent and aggressive, destroying property and life.  Increased hatred, violence, and the loss of self-control all signal the breakdown of society at large!

Let us not also forget about economic collapse!  Have we forgotten about the stock market crashes?  The huge bailouts (economic stimulus) of Wall Street and the major banks has caused a significant increase in national debt, not only here in America but also in many other countries around the world.  This financial bubble is just that, a bubble just waiting to pop!

There are also many diseases throughout the world which have threatened and still threaten the lives of millions of people.  Many of which there is no cure and the outcomes are deadly.  Not to mention antibiotic resistant forms of many diseases and they seem to be growing in numbers!

All of these I believe are all signs leading to the soon return of Jesus Christ!  Signs that we are nearing the end of an age and the beginning of a new period.

Luke 21:7-19

“So they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, but when will these things be? And what sign will there be when these things are about to take place?”

8 And He said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them. 9 But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.”

10 Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.12 But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons. You will be brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake.13 But it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony.14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer;15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.16 You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death.17 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake.18 But not a hair of your head shall be lost.19 By your patience possess your souls.”

Earthquakes, famines, pestilences, fearful sights and great signs from heaven!  Don’t we already see these things happening?  And believers hated by all for Christ’s name sake!

The world is quickly becoming a hotbed of activities, events, and occurrences in which there will be no worldly solutions for, a place where man will have no answers for the increasing problems, a time when the world will come face to face with having crossed a line in the sand with no turning back.

The stage is being set for the need of a savior, someone to save the world from its certain destruction!  A man who will seem to have all of the right answers, a man with charisma and charm, a man promoting a false peace to the world, the Antichrist!

The last days will be fraught with fear and anxiety upon the world, it will be a time of danger, a perilous time!  A time of perplexity!

Luke 21:25-26

And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

We have all seen many signs over the past decade and even more recently in the sun, the moon, and in the stars.  Blood-red moons, the misalignment of the moon, solar flares, meteor strikes, close encounters with asteroids, the alignment of planets, etc., all signs in the sun, moon, and the stars!  The earth has seen the distress of nations with perplexity!  Say it isn’t so!  Rogue nations threatening to use nuclear weapons, the eruption of wars all around the world, civil war in Syria bringing to it the attention of the world, and the mass migration of Muslims, not to mention everything else which I have stated so far in this post!  The waves and the seas are roaring, just look at what happened in Texas and Florida with Hurricanes Harvey and Irma!  And tell me that people are not in fear of what is coming next upon the world!

I am not writing this to alarm you, unless of course you need to be alarmed.  If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior then you need to be shaken and alarmed!  If you are a believer in Jesus Christ yet you are sleeping then you need to also be alarmed and woken from your slumber.

Jesus told us that when all of these things begin to happen then look up for your redemption draws near!

Luke 21:28

Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.

I don’t know about you, but I see these things happening, and the Lord said that when we see them “begin” to happen then look up and lift up your heads because your redemption draws near!  Our redemption is drawing near my friends!  The rapture of the church is close at hand, our glorification awaits, our new immortal bodies, eternity in heaven and on the new earth with Jesus Christ is closer than we ever imagined that it would be!

Look up my friends for your redemption draws near!  Seek the Lord in all things, He shall never leave you nor forsake you! 

Accept Jesus Christ now as your Lord and Savior while you still have the chance!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!
