RECENT EARTHQUAKES & A COMET ?

WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD?

Here is a list of all the major earthquakes since January 1, 2011 from the USGS (click the link) website.

At 00:30:10 UTC it was reported by the USGS (click the link) that there were approximately 20 earthquakes within 1 day in the conterminous 48 states of the USA, about the same number in Alaska, 1 in Hawaii and 1 in Puerto Rico.

At the time of the writing of this post (01:00:00 UTC) there were at least 2 quakes in 2 states in the USA and 1 off the East coast of Japan, within an hour.

There is also a report by NASA (click the link) that a comet will pass through earth's orbit and go around our sun on or about September or October of 2011. NASA says the comet will not be a threat to us.

What is going on in the world?

If you have read the scriptures and currently listen to preachers you know that Christ will return. In fact the scriptures tell us that many false prophets will arise and preach lies regarding Christ's return. We have seen one such doomsday false prophet recently.

With all the different catastrophic things happening in the world, most people will want some answers and some comfort. The scripture says no man knows the exact time or day of the coming of Christ (Matthew 24:36). However, even though we do not know the exact time or day, Jesus gave us some things to think about so we would not be caught off-guard or unawares. See for yourself what the scriptures say:

"And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" (Matthew 24:3)

The disciples asked Jesus 2 questions:
1. When shall these things be?
2. What shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world?
Look at what Jesus told them.

"Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." (Matthew 24:4-8)

Firstly, Jesus said they should let no one deceive them. Jesus cautioned them and us in His first sentence. DO NOT LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU! Jesus then clarified His caution by saying that MANY would come, they would even come in His name, calling themselves Christ, and shall deceive many. DO NOT LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU.

Secondly, Jesus said we would hear of wars and rumours of wars, but that we should not be troubled because these things MUST happen; BUT THE END IS NOT YET.

Thirdly, Jesus said nation would rise up against nation and kingdom against kingdom. He said there would be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in many places.

Fourthly, Jesus said: "All these are THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS."

If you are up on your current affairs, you will recognize that all of these things are happening in the world right now. I encourage you, DO NOT FEAR or WORRY; although, I urge you, BE PREPARED. There is so much more depth to this chapter but it cannot be covered in one post. Keep following this blog to see MORE about this in the upcoming weeks.

God Bless and Keep You!

I've been following this comet "thing" quite closely..the internet is a fire with "comet Elenin" stories and info. There has been such a major upkick in earthquakes, volcanic activity, sun flares...you name it! My personal opinion...the "birth pangs" are increasing. These are signs of our Lord's soon return. For me - and for many that I know- the "super sign" was the rebirth of Israel in 1948. And now...some 63 years later the planet is shaking like a leaf. I'm looking up... :)

Actually- I almost forgot (again). I was told to give you something. How can I contact you?

Hi Connie, I believe the rebirth of Israel was very significant in that it was one of about 20 fulfilled biblical prophecies. In a few weeks from now I will begin posting my studies about these fulfilled prophecies. I will inbox you with some more info. :)

Here is my follow-up on the Comet Elenin: It has been reported that the comet disintegrated on its turn around the sun.

Please see: COMET ELENIN DISINTEGRATED.

Thanks and God bless. :)
