I read this post today… I don’t mean to create panic with forwarding his note but I think he’s got a point about what the Scriptures say. Our response?: it’s a call to pray…
Killer Quake in Japan. . . A Sign of the times?
by Greg Laurie on Friday, March 11, 2011 at 2:10pm
An 8.9 magnitude Earthquake in Japan has hit with a Ferocious tsunami.
It’s the largest earthquake in the history of Japan.
This on the heels of the quake that just rocked Christchurch,New Zealand.
Friends,I believe that these are ‘signs of the times’ without question.
There are many “Signs of the times” Jesus told us to look for pointing to His Return.
Jesus told us one of those signs is there would be an increase in earthquakes.
“And there will be Great Earthquakes, and in various places plagues
and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven” (Luke 21:11)
We will see more of this in the future.
We have always had Earthquakes,Hurricanes and Tsunamis.
But you expect to see more of them as we get closer to Christ’s Return.
According to the U.S.Geological Society,they say Earthquakes are increasing.
* For the past 5 Decades,Every Decade has increased the number of Earthquakes.
* Not just Minor ones,but “Killer Quakes”
* And this one,has been one of the Strongest ever.
Unrest in Middle East.
Then,you look at all that is happening in the Middle East,especially in Egypt and Libya
And we wonder,are these ‘signs of the times?”.
I believe they are.
I want to talk about that this coming Sunday at Harvest/Riverside.
Our service times are 7:45/9:45/11:45 am and 5:00 pm.
Don’t forget,we are having a time change this weekend as well.
All of this will be broadcast live online at http://www.harvest.org
I think I will be listening to hear what he says.
