Earthquakes



PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:
Jesus listed earthquakes as one of the major "signs of the times" leading to the End Times events. Earthquakes and related tsunamis seem to be getting larger and more frequent lately.
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains. - Matthew 24:7-8 (NIV)

Is there really an increase in seismic activity? From some perspectives it certainly seems that there is, but scientists remind us that this could also be due to the increased effectiveness in measuring and reporting events. In any case, there is no doubt that this period of time qualifies as a fulfillment of the prophecy that "there will be earthquakes!"
