I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens." ...

|Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place|
at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger.
All of the stories listed above involve earth shaking. What's the short version of whats going on? This is mercy in warning of future wrath and judgement. There you have it. Why does the Lord wait? Mercy. He warns and warns, its been going on for years. How long have we seen the slide of the entire world along with all of its systems into a whirlpool circling the drain of destruction? This has been a process taking years to mature. That means the world has had a constant drumbeat of serious warning for going on 5-6 years at least. And still the Lord mercifully waits.
We recently saw Obama travel to Israel complete with an abomination forerunner/ice sculpture. Nothing happened as usual, but what was it? Another warning of what is coming. I believe the Obama trip was another push/pull to get people shaken out of their watchful stance. How many more "advertise and do nothing" events will we see? Only the Lord knows but I know this, the people using these events to get people to stop watching only convince some of us to continue watching and readiness. When 'they' make it seem like major events are going to occur in the near future they are doing us a favor! They make the same mistake with us that they made at the cross. The enemy thought it was a day of great victory when he crucified the Lord of glory. Now the entire world understands the results of that day to be the greatest blessing mankind will ever know: eternal salvation. With us the intent is to get us to stop watching but they only reinforce our beliefs that the prophesies written about thousands of years ago are about to unfold.
Look around, the systems of this world are circling the drain. While some people believe the answer is to stockpile guns, gold and food the only true safety will be found in Christ. Should we have a little extra stashed around the house these days just in case? Yes, but the people thinking they will be able to doomsday prep their way through the tribulation are in for a rude awakening. I'm not putting you down if you are prepping all I am saying is the forces that will be arrayed against mankind in those days will be supernatural. A supernatural enemy working with natural evil mankind will be what is arrayed against the tribulation saints. How will food guns and gold help a man when fallen angels and demons are out looking for him? Only a spiritual defense and hiding place will do any good in those days. The Lord is such a defense and hiding place:
|You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs|
|The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I|
take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
The earth is already shaking, it would be wise for us to take refuge in the only real shelter mankind has in these evil days: The Lord.
grace and peace
