Major to super magnitude earthquakes have increased to more than one every two days on average during the last 46 months. The continuously high number of major to super earthquakes during this time period 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.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining will also come to pass. Please don’t neglect your eternal soul. If you aren’t saved, I invite you to visit the How Can I Be Saved page of this website. God bless you.
