Matthew 24:7 states: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven; this was written 2,000 years ago, by Luke the Evangelist who was quoting the warnings of Jesus Christ.
Famines, pestilence and fearful events are very much a part of our life these days and as for signs from heaven, last year we were blessed with blood Moons and Super Moons, Sun and moon eclipses, fire balls, comets just to name a few.
But it’s the earthquakes statistics which I find jaw-dropping, this century, from January the 1st in the year 2,000 until January 2017 a total of 2,697 major quakes have been recorded.
In the same period, January the 1st 1900 to January 1917 only 97 major quakes were recorded, that is an incredible increase and indicates our planet is showing signs of birth pains because just as a woman in labour suffers contractions of increasing pain and intensity likewise our planet is also suffering with increasing quake pain and intensity.
And with wars and rumours of wars it is safe to conclude Jesus’s warning and prophecy would place us somewhere in the last days.
The enormity of the difference in numbers is absolutely astounding seen on the year by year graphs below
Even taking technology into account the difference is astoundingIn 2011, the year of the mag 9. Fukushima disaster in Japan our planet suffered 208 major quakes compared to 1911 when just 11 were recorded.
