It is showing as a 6.9 but since all of the earthquake data appears to be getting shaved down we'll round it back up to where it probably was before being downgraded.
We have not even made it to March yet and we've had an 8.0 and at least 3 M 7+ quakes. What does that mean? March/April should see a monster. Why we look at this is the world is heading headlong toward the pole shift event of Revelation 6 where this happens:
Rev 6:12I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. 14The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.
This is describing a magnetic and physical pole shift. We have verifiable scientific evidence that even now the magnetosphere is degrading and headed toward a pole shift. The historic record of the earth has shown us what happens just before a magnetic pole shift and those precise things are happening now. So what? So the Lord told us it would happen and it is in the process of happening. That means the Word of God is again batting 1000%.
It also means time is short. If the pole shift is already in progress that means the clock is ticking on our time here. When the events of Rev 6:12-14 take place many many people will not survive it. Should we worry? Noah escaped the flood. Was that 'escapist', yea and whose plan was it? The Lord's. Lot escaped the fiery destruction of Sodom, was that escapist? Yea and whose plan was it? The Lord's. Is another escape promised? Gee, I don't know lets find out:
Luke 21:36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Well, I guess there IS an escape coming. Yes, I know people are coming out of the woodwork to tell us there is no escape. I bet the same people scoffed at Noah and if they would have been warned they would have scoffed at Lot as well. This writer could care less what men have to say about the escape. What men say means zero, what God says means everything. If the Lord said there would be an escape you can bet the farm there is an escape. I've heard all the arguments and seen all the denials and you know what? If those people who argue till they are blue in the face feel they must go through the tribulation, then maybe THEY MUST.
Not everyone has the same faith. Some have the faith to move mountains and others couldn't move an anthill. What did the Lord say and what does your faith say? Do not be deceived, what you believe does matter...
|Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! It will be done just as you believed|
it would." And his servant was healed at that very hour.
The enemy comes to kill, STEAL, and destroy. If he can steal your faith, he can steal everything. The Lord works through men to build His kingdom and the enemy works through men to kill, steal and destroy. Perhaps all the argumentative scoffers need to go through the tribulation, who am I to argue with them? But who are they to judge our faith? Are they the Almighty that they would know what is stored up in our hearts and spirits?
I can say this, when the escape happens and many are left behind because of their unbelief they will be wiped out emotionally and spiritually. They ask us what happens if the escape/rapture does not happen pre-trib and I ask them what happens to them when it does! Will it destroy their faith when the pre-trib rapture escape happens and they do not participate in it due to their lack of faith/belief? What then? How will they feel about that when they know they missed it?
Truly these are vexing questions for those who attack us day and night. They do not answer because they cannot answer without demolishing their own arguments. The wise virgins were found watching and ready when the Bridegroom came. The foolish virgins were shut out. Surely the foolish virgins looked over at the wise and questioned what all their oil was for? "Why have it, He cannot show up today!" because of doctrines x,y and z, right? Wrong. The price for being caught unprepared is being shut out. Its not "see you on the way up" or "see you later" they were shut out. What did the Lord say?
Matt 25:11“Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’
12“But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’
13“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
I don't know you? Seems like a steep price to pay for not watching and being ready doesn't it? But brother D does not make the rules, the Lord does. The Lord said "away from me I never knew you" not brother D. The Lord shut the door in their face, not brother D. There will be a serious price to pay for those who are not ready. How can we go wrong by keeping ourselves ready for the Lord at all times? You cannot, i repeat CANNOT go wrong. The Lord said to do it but men would rather argue. All will be settled in time.
Let us be found as wise virgins and faithful servants when the Lord reveals Himself. That means be watching and ready at all times. That means now.
grace and peace
