We have seen an extraordinary number of M 7 or stronger quakes over the past two weeks. What does this tell us? March and April-our mega-quake window-could see a real monster. Again, why bother mentioning this over and over? The Lord uses these quakes as an attention getter. What is the point of writing the book of Revelation? Getting man's attention and to settle the score.
Do we see earthquakes in the book of Revelation?
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.
I guess so....We can see proof positive ^^ that earthquakes are a tool the Lord uses to get our attention. The pattern of quakes we see year after year are spring and fall with mega-quakes in the spring. That means alot of attention should be paid to the spring season. What's happening this spring?
1. A new pope-the false prophet-will be selected
2. U.S./Babylon's economic dismantling (sequester/budget approval/debt ceiling fights)
3. Obama, our leading candidate for anti-christ will visit Israel for the first time as president exactly six days before passover just like Jesus did (March 20 this year)
John 12:1Six days before the Passover, Jesus arrived at Bethany, where Lazarus lived, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. 2Here a dinner was given in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. 3Then Mary took about a pinta of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4. Mega-quake per the established pattern we have seen for years.
And who knows what else is on the plate for this spring that we don't know about? The point is to be ready to meet the Lord at any time. We were commanded to be watching and ready for the Lord to show up at any time. The Lord placed no restrictions on Himself in the Word that would prohibit Him from showing up at any moment. He is not constrained by the 'second coming' or the rapture or by any other event listed in scripture. He is God Almighty and He can do what He chooses to do, when He chooses to do it.
If we were told to watch for Him and be ready for Him and people choose not to do that because of their doctrine or theology then shame on them. There is no way, absolutely NO WAY you can go wrong by daily watching and readiness for the Lord's return. Some day, and we do not know the day or hour, HE WILL RETURN FOR US and on that day we must be found as faithful servants doing what He told us to do:
Mark 13:32“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alertf! You do not know when that time will come. 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
35“Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”
Do you see any caveats in there ^^ for the tribulation or the rapture or for any other event in scripture? I don't. What I see is a clear command to obey: WATCH....period. How much more plain could the Lord say it? But many would rather argue and debate all day about why we should not do (watch) what we were told to do today and every day.
Anything that hinders people from obeying the clear commands in scripture should be thrown out the window. That would be the 'pre-wrath' and post-trib teaching and doctrine for many. They get so caught up in their beliefs they ignore the simple indisputable commands given to us. There is much about prophesy and Revelation I do not understand. Because of how much I do not understand much more weight is placed on what I do understand and am sure of.
I am not 100% sure of what is going to happen on what days ahead of us, but I am 100% rock solid certain that I should be watching and ready for the Lord's return at any time. Would would be wise to keep watch because we do not know when the owner of the house will come back. If He comes back suddenly do not let him find you sleeping. <--the lord="" mine.="" not="" p="" s="" word="">
