“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. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.” (Matthew 24:6-7)

Increasingly, there are more and more reports of earthquakes around the earth … within the last week, today being 8/4/24, we have Taiwan, New York and China experiencing the same.

What could God be doing?

People want to blame Satan for earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters but this is not Bible truth … as he is god of this world not the God of the earth (2 Corinthians 4:4).

Let’s start at the beginning:

In the beginning God (Jesus Christ, the Word) created the heaven and the earth (John 1:2) … and Christ saw that it was good.

Furthermore, being the Rock to come, the Word looked down from heaven and saw that it was not only good .. but very good (Genesis 1:31) … it was exactly like him … it was solid rock! (1 Corinthians 10:4) … the earth was a physical representation of himself.

When Adam and Eve sinned, Christ made the earth’s core molten lavahell … the place for sinners … but the mantle (the surface of the earth) stayed intact.

This earth change still represented Christ … it’s as if Christ says “That’s OK, I’m still the solid rock of one land mass, but now I also am fire judgment (Romans 14:10).

But with the world’s exponential sin, Christ drowns all living things in 2340 BC … except for Noah and the ark. At this stage, the earth is still one land mass … with Christ perhaps saying “I’m still one piece of solid Rock … it’s still good.”

But 340 years later about 2000 BC, at the tower of Babel, Christ gives new languages and divides the earth into separate continents (Genesis 10:25).

Perhaps, this is when Christ perhaps says “Nup! I’ve has enough … I’m breaking up the solid land mass with earthquakes … the earth’s surface is no longer very good! This is my judgment on sin.”

Since then, over the centuries, the mantle (the surface of the earth) has been broken up by lots of earthquakes, as Christ continues to show his displeasure at man’s sin.

And strap yourself in Folks … there’s more and more coming with increasing rapidity!

Furthermore, volcanoes and lava emissions (eg Iceland) are becoming more frequent … reminding people of their future in Christ’s physical hell … yes Folks as the popular saying goes … “It’s hell on earth now you know.”

Man’s sin has broken the once solid rock of earth with earthquakes … but God so loved the world he sent the Rock to be broken (John 3:16), that man, who physically once lived upon solid rock, may find redemption within the solid Rock of Christ.

Earthquakes are God’s wrath … God breaks up rock … to remind man of his sin … and man’s need to ‘run’ into the Rock!
