Six major (6+) and two great (7+) earthquakes have occurred in just the last five days!
Major to great (6.0+) magnitude earthquakes have increased to more than one quake every two days during the last 38 months on average. This is unprecedented and a fulfillment of last days Bible prophecy.
Jesus said these signs would appear before He returns, “Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in diverse places“ Matthew 24:7.
“Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places and famines and pestilences, and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven” Luke 21:11.
Jesus also said, “Blessed are those servants whom the Master, when He comes, will find watching“ Luke 12:37.
