Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about earthquakes just a bit.  Our Savior, Jesus Christ, mentioned them in regards to the end times.

Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Mat 24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.

Israel is encompassed by enemies, we have seen a century without peace, the AIDS pandemic, major famines in India, Ethiopia, and North Korea, earthquakes in Upstate NY, DC, Chile, Pakistan, Greece, tidal waves…Welcome to the times of sorrows.
