The recent domino effect of high-end Richter-scale earthquakes has brought to my attention, and I’m sure to many other’s attention, the prophesies foretold in the Holy Scripture. More specifically the prophesies written in Mark chapter 13.
From what we can see in Mark 13:8, it states, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.” The first event which naturally came to my mind was the occurrence of earthquakes, which have just recently struck Haiti, Chile, and now, just a few days ago, Mexico. All of these earthquakes, 7.0+ in magnitude have happened in just a matter of several months. Yet this is not the only event which can be seen taking place in the prophesy.
Even before the earthquakes; as this verse seems to place these events in chronological order, was the warring of nations. Today wars are happening between many of the nations, including the American war against terrorism in the middle east, as well as growing tension from North Korea. In addition, ties between allies, as well as the involvement of the UN increases the number of nations involved in war today.
Thirdly we can see an abundance of famine and troubles throughout the world. Many of the situations in the 3rd world countries of Africa, Asia, and South America are well known to suffer from great famine of food and water among the people, as well as, but not limited to child prostitution, brothels, killings, and chaotic environment overall.
