The earthquake news today is awful. I took all these pictures from my T.V., heartbreaking images. Does it seem to you that we are having more and more of these natural disasters? Chile, Haiti, Christchurch...it seems that there never used to be this many. And so close together. But I just read a newspaper article that says there are no more earthquakes than usual, hard for me to believe. Apparently, there are 14 to 17 magnitude 7 earthquakes every year. But not many are near populated places. So the difference is that though there are the same number as ever, more are hitting populated areas. And there is no way for scientists to tell where an earthquake will strike next. Is this a sign of the end times? The bible speaks to this very subject, let's see what it says.
"When reports come in of wars and rumored wars, keep your head and don't panic. This is routine history; this is no sign of the end. Nation will fight nation and ruler fight ruler, over and over. Famines and earthquakes will occur in various places." The Message: Matthew 24
I will not be commenting on any blogs today. We will be gone all day from morning till late at night. We are going over the mountain in the morning to another city, then coming back mid-day, changing, and going the other direction to a different city. What are we up to? You'll have to wait for a future post to find out. See you tomorrow!
