California Earthquakes

California Earthquakes

Are earthquakes increasing in the U.S.?

Again in the news seismologists are issuing warnings about two large swarms of earthquakes developing in the Baja Peninsula along the Laguna Salads fault zone because energy from these quakes can transfer to several California faults including the San Andreas.

I find it interesting when scientists use phrases like “these are increasing in frequency and magnitude rapidly,” probably without realizing Jesus warned us in Matthew 24:7 that we would see birth pangs increasing at the end of the church age, specifically naming “earthquakes.”

Seismologists are also warning there is significant activity off the coast of Northern California and Oregon meaning the Pacific and North American plates are trying to move and friction is growing. They say this means the locked zone of the San Andreas is getting heavy pressure from the south.

In addition to earthquakes, seismologists say we are entering a volcanic period unlike anything we have seen before. Volcanoes are waking up all over the world. Because of the data they are seeing, they are encouraging emergency managers to get plans in place for volcanic eruptions in the southwest region of the U.S. where there are thousands of volcanoes.

What is interesting about all of this is historically when our nation has opposed Israel, there is a consistent pattern of natural disasters within our shores. Currently, our nation is opposing Israel: (1) by pushing Israel to accept a two-state solution which would create a Palestinian state inside the borders of Israel and (2) by not making it a priority to let Iran know sanctions will not be removed unless they reduce their uranium enrichment level and uranium stockpile.

So, it will be interesting to see if there will be major seismic activity within the U.S. if we continue to turn our back on Israel. As we watch headlines on Vienna and the two-state solution, let's ask the question, "Is the United States blessing Israel or cursing it?" (Genesis 12:3)
