Earthquakes, Tsunami’s and Cyclones

If your like me, your asking yourself “What more can happen in these last and evil days”. I want to go ahead and talk pretty candidly right now. Each day we all turn on the news and in some portion of the world, we find that some type of calamity has come. An Earthquake! A Tsunami! Now more recently a Cyclone (and this is not the cyclone roller coaster from Coney Island in New York City). We all cried over the 2000+ lives that were lost during the World Trade Center Attack yet 10,000 people were all killed at one time from last weeks Cyclone in Myanmar. In a China province, 8,500 people are confirmed dead from the earthquake that shook their nation. Finally in more recent events 15,500 people were killed in the Tsunami that hit Asia a few years ago. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE????????? Lets turn to the Word of God and see what God says about the last days.

Mark 13:7 says that there will be wars and rumors of wars. (Did you know that the last 100 years have seen more wars than any time since creation?) Matthew 24:7 says that there will be earthquakes in diverse places. (Did you know that earthquakes have increased in frequency and intensity some 2,000% since Israel returned to the land in 1948?) Luke 21:25-26 says that storms will become increasingly worse. (Did you know that there have been a record number of tropical storms, hurricanes and tornadoes beginning in the 1990’s. Sustained winds routinely top 200 miles per hour now).  Luke 21:11 and Revelation 6:8 says famines and pestilence will be commonplace (Did you know that there have been more deaths from famine since 1950 than any other time in history. Old diseases are gaining the upper-hand and new diseases are appearing regularly that have no cure.) Finally 2 Timothy 3 clearly states that in the last days people will not want to hear sound doctrine. (Can we say TBN and The Word Network and all of these mega churches that have sprung up teaching a gospel of inspiration instead of the True Gospel of Holiness and keeping oneself clean and pure from the filth of this world. TURN ON MOST TV PREACHERS TODAY!

Saints, think it not strange when we see these things come about. Any day now, the Lord Jesus will be returning for his True Church! Will you be ready? Take comfort that those that have been baptised in Jesus Name and are filled with the Holy Ghost have a blessed hope which is the Rapture of the Church of God. Weeping may endure for a night saints, but joy comes in the morning. Hold your head up high. Yes gas prices are at $4.00 (as of today 5/14/2008 ) but don’t you worry, God will provide for his children. Keep living a holy life. Keep living a consecrated and sanctified life before the Lord and God promises He will give you a Crown of Life.
