There are earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occurring at unprecedented rates across the globe. The dramatic increase of both frequency and intensity should remind everyone of the prophetic words of Jesus about natural events just prior to his return.
But are they really increasing or is it just that we’re more aware of them? “In 1973, there were only 24 earthquakes in the US measuring over 3.0. Between 2009-2015, the number has jumped to 318. And just in the central US alone during the first three months of this year, the number of 3.0 or higher quakes have soared to 226.” No, it isn’t just our perception.
While the destruction and fear these events cause are real, they should cause us also to look up in anticipation, because they are signs of His soon return.
