“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these [are] the beginnings of sorrows” (Mark 13:8)
Have you noticed that the crust of the Earth is starting to become a lot more unstable? Over the past couple of months, major earthquakes have shaken areas all over the planet and major volcanoes have been erupting with a frequency that is more than just a little bit startling. Here in the United States, the state of Oklahoma absolutely shattered their yearly record for quakes last year, we just saw a very disturbing earthquake right along the New Madrid fault just recently, and as you will see below one scientist is telling us that the San Andreas fault in southern California “looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go”.
The name of the scientist that issued that very ominous warning is Thomas Jordan, and he is the director of the Southern California Earthquake Center. The following quote from Jordan comes from a Los Angeles Times article that was published this week that is getting a huge amount of attention right now… -source
This should not surprise any born again believer in God and His Word. The Bible is filled with warnings about earthquakes and how they will be more and more frequent and powerful in the last days. But the Word is also filled with earthquakes throughout history. Does God speak judgment through these scary events? Let’s see what the Word says:
“The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again” (Isaiah 24:19-20).
“Mountains quake because of Him And the hills dissolve; Indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, The world and all the inhabitants in it” (Nahum 1:5)
“From the LORD of hosts you will be punished with thunder and earthquake and loud noise, With whirlwind and tempest and the flame of a consuming fire” (Isaiah 29:6).
“You have made the land quake, You have split it open; Heal its breaches, for it totters” (Psalm 60:2).
So, God does speak judgment against evil men/women by bringing earthquakes which make the earth tremble.

“The springs on the San Andreas system have been wound very, very tight. And the southern San Andreas fault, in particular, looks like it’s locked, loaded and ready to go,” Jordan said in the opening keynote talk.
Other sections of the San Andreas fault also are far overdue for a big quake. Further southeast of the Cajon Pass, such as in San Bernardino County, the fault has not moved substantially since an earthquake in 1812, and further southeast toward the Salton Sea, it has been relatively quiet since about 1680 to 1690.
Here’s the problem: Scientists have observed that based on the movement of tectonic plates, with the Pacific plate moving northwest of the North American plate, earthquakes should be relieving about 16 feet of accumulated plate movement every 100 years. Yet the San Andreas has not relieved stress that has been building up for more than a century.
Jordan went on to say that when the tension that has been building along the San Andreas fault is finally relieved, it could potentially produce a magnitude 8 earthquake.
Back in 2008, the U.S. Geological Survey concluded that just a magnitude 7.8 earthquake along the southern San Andreas fault would cause more than 1,800 deaths, 50,000 injuries and 200 billion dollars in damage.
So we are talking about a truly historic event.
Many people out there believe that someday large portions of California will fall into the ocean as the result of an absolutely massive earthquake, but the USGS is convinced that is not likely to happen. However, they do openly admit that someday the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco will be located right next to one another… – source
The great sins of America
How can God not bring his righteous judgment against a country which was initially formed upon His Holy Word; but now has turned its back on Him completely? I am not speaking of the remnant of true believers, but brethren – I do believe that this remnant is so very small.
The blood of the unborn babies cry out to God. Over 60 million slaughtered and butchered since 1973. The god haters and yes, even many who claim to love Him, have jumped on the LGBT wagon. They don’t care what God says in His Word about homosexuality. They believe they are right.
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12).

But of course it isn’t just California that we need to be concerned about.
According to the Daily Mail, one team of scientists has concluded that giant chunks of the Earth’s mantle are “breaking off and sinking into the planet” under the North American plate, and that this is what has caused some of the unusual earthquakes in the eastern part of the country in recent years…
The southeastern United States has been hit by a series of strange unexplained quakes – most recently, the 2011 magnitude-5.8 earthquake near Mineral, Virginia that shook the nation’s capital.
Researchers have been baffled, believing the areas should be relatively quiet in terms of seismic activity, as it is located in the interior of the North American Plate, far away from plate boundaries where earthquakes usually occur.
Now, they believe the quakes could be caused by pieces of the Earth’s mantle breaking off and sinking into the planet.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds rather ominous to me.
The crust of our planet already somewhat resembles a giant cracked egg, and to hear that pieces may be breaking off and sinking into the interior is not exactly comforting.
Those that follow my work closely know that I have been writing about seismic activity a lot lately, and that I believe that major earth changes are coming to the North American continent. I am deeply concerned about the New Madrid fault, the Cascadia Subduction zone, the major faults in southern California and Mt. Rainier up in Washington state. – source
God’s righteous anger will be poured out on America. We don’t know the timing but we know the inevitability of this happening. If God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for its unspeakable sins, why should America be spared?
Brethren, let our lives be focused on sharing the Gospel with the lost. As a country, we have fallen away from God. There is no debate about that. But the Lord and all of heaven rejoice over the salvation of one repentant sinner!
