Heavy Seismicity

I came across an article a couple of days ago talking about the
number of earthquakes over the weekend:

Alaska had numerous small quakes and a 5.8 earthquake in
Anchorage yesterday.
Iran a 4.5
Romania a 4.6
Hawaii a mild jolt
Indonesia a 4.6
South America a 4.5
Afghanistan a 4.1
Vanautu Islands, located between Australia and Fiji, a 6.4 followed
the next day by a 6.0
Sichuan, China a 4.8

Written on December 2:
"As it stands, there have been twenty earthquakes today, 207 
earthquakes in the past seven days, 822 earthquakes in the past
month, and 17,474 earthquakes in the last year."

I went back over an eight day period in November and counted
eight earthquakes over 6, three of them over 7!

Why is this important to talk about? Because of the words of Jesus:

"Then he said unto them, 'Nation shall rise against nation and 
Kingdom against kingdom:  And great earthquakes shall be in
divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights
and great signs shall there be from heaven.'" (Luke 21:10,11)

The disciples had asked Jesus in Matthew 24, "Tell us,...what
shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world."

As I go about my daily life I am also listening for the sound of
the trumpet! The hour is late, a time is coming when every thing
will shift. We can use the Mayan Calendar, and the date of
december 21, not as a place of truth, or fear, but as a wake up call
"to watch."
