For most people, hearing of another earthquake in some far flung corner of the world is not exactly earth shaking news, (excuse the pun). Except of course for those huge earthquakes that kill thousands, cause tsunamis and tilt the earth slightly off balance, which has occurred more than a few times in the past decade.
However when you see two large earthquakes basically in your immediate neighborhood, (America), and both quakes come with the label of being the strongest in a half century, it gives you cause to reflect and ask the question; Just what is going on here?
Some claim that as the comet Elenin approaches and comes into alignment with earth and several other solar bodies, (planets, sun and moon), earthquakes start to happen. (for more on this purported correlation click on the following link: http://alamongordo.com/general/elenin-timeline/ ).
All we know is that we were warned by Jesus Christ to expect all this increasing sciesmic activity as the time of his return approached.
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24:7-8 NIV
