The recent earthquake in Japan was the most powerful ever recorded in that country. It caused a lot of devastation and death to that region. Let us remember in our prayers the people who suffered loss and loved ones and also let us help out as much as we can.
Scripture tells us that earthquakes are one of the signs that judgment is coming to the earth. These scriptures tell us that earthquakes are like labor pains because they happen more and more frequently. The interval of time between the earthquakes are shorter and shorter. And as they happen more frequently, their intensity also increases. Finally, when the baby is due to be born, the labor pains are almost constant. Likewise, when judgment comes, earthquakes will be very close together.
Scripture also says that when Russia and a confederate of Muslim nations launch an all out attack on Israel, there will be an earthquake that is so powerful that the whole earth will feel it. It will be the worst earthquake that the world has ever experienced. God will then destroy these invaders in the mountains of Israel and by doing so, He will make Himself known to all the nations of the world.
But Cheer up! There is hope. You don’t have to experience the judgment of God. You can experience God’s pardon from all of your sins, past present and future. If you have not yet received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can do so now. Take a look at God’s Simple Plan of Salvation.
