Looking the the usgs.gov website, there has been a whole lot of shaken going on. You can also say the hits just keep on coming. When you look at it you see the size of the quakes getting larger and more frequent. In the last twenty four hours we have had two 8. earthquakes in Samontra, Two Six point earthquakes in Mexico, 5.9 off the coast of Oregon. 5.3 in Japan. There has been an interesting one in Utah and one off Nova Scotia.
Jesus said when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence and earthquakes in diverse places look up. Look up for redemption draweth neigh. Matthew 24 calls this the beginning of sorrows. The Greek word is odeen which is the pains of childbirth. I have four children myself and have been there for each of the births. I know what that looks like. I've been there when we had the children at home and when we had them in a hospital. So we won't get into the whole midwife/hospital controversy in this post. Though at another time and another place that would be a great discussion. The thing I am seeing is the time is approaching. What a doctor or a midwife would say is, when the contractions are close together, then we are ready to deliver. There is something called Braxton-Hix contractions. They are false labor pains. A woman who is in touch with her body knows the difference. With this round of earthquakes and the frequency of them happening, I say we are beyond Braxton-Hix and ready to call the midwife to come and deliver the baby.
The question now becomes are you ready? To be ready is simple. Call upon the name of the Lord and you shall be saved. For those who have already done so, are your garments, cleaned and pressed and ready. Time to pray up. Time to look up, for our salvation draweth neigh.
