What is Going On?

I think this is a valid question to ask ourselves. I didn’t realize there was an earthquake season.

Let’s take a look at mean:

  • Haiti (7.0),
  • Chile (8.8),
  • Taiwan (6.4),
  • Okinawa (7.0),
  • and now Turkey (5.9-6.0).

    Are we living in the end time? This is a question that I see a lot on blogs of the Evangelical persuasion.

    And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. (Matthew 24:4-8)

    However, as my Lutheran Study Bible points out in the notes for vs. 6-7,

    Because geopolitical conflicts and natural disasters are common, they cannot be used to determine the date of the end of the world. The frequency of such signs reminds us that we always need to be prepared for Jesus’ return.

    I’ve also seen it said that God is trying to get our attention with these earthquakes. That depends on what you mean by “get our attention.”
