Concerns as Israel Hit by Two Earthquakes in One Day

Prophecy Sign:  A future major Tribulation earthquake in Israel

There have been five minor earthquakes in a week in Israel which have geologists concerned that something bigger may be one the way.  If such a quake strikes it will likely kill thousands according to the report below. Scientists and geologists should be worried as bible prophecy warns that during the coming Tribulation period a major earthquake will strike Jerusalem, (and likely other areas of Israel as well), and result in the deaths of several thousands of people.  The ground beneath Israel is just getting warmed up.

Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on. At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven. Revelation 11:12-13 NIV

'Major Israeli earthquake could cause thousands of deaths'
Four minor earthquakes in four days have raised concerns about the potential for costly damage and loss of life that may occur in the event that a major earthquake hits the region in the near future. According to some experts, these fears may be valid. Professor Amotz Agnon, a Geology and Geophysics expert working at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, believes a major earthquake in the near future could kill thousands. Speaking in an interview with Army Radio, Agnon said that a strong earthquake in Israel could "lead to thousands of deaths. From experience, we know that everything depends on the time of day an earthquake occurs. The cities of Safed, Tiberias, Kiryat Shmona, Beit She'an and Eilat, unfortunately, are all built above the Syrian-African fault-line."

Concerns as Israel Hit by Two Earthquakes in One Day
Israel experienced not one, but two earthquakes on Sunday, raising fears that a significant geological event was in the offing. Sunday's quakes followed one that occurred early Saturday morning, which was preceded by one last Thursday night. The first quake was reported at 11:50 AM, measuring 3.6 on the Richter scale. The epicenter of that quake was in the northern Kinneret, five kilometers north of Ginnosar. The second one, reported at 3:54 PM, also measured 3.6 on the Richter scale, and its epicenter was somewhat south of Ginnosar.

Two earthquakes in one day shake northern Israel
A string of minor earthquakes have rattled the North over the past few days – including two on Sunday – though none have caused any injuries or significant damages. An earthquake with a magnitude of 3.6 on the Richter scale hit the Hula Valley-Kinneret region Sunday morning at around 11:50 a.m., with its epicenter in the northwestern portion of the Kinneret – a few kilometers northeast of Kibbutz Ginossar and a few kilometers south of Capernaum, according to data from the Israel Geophysical Institute’s Seismology Division. Just four hours later, at 3:54 p.m., another quake with a 3.5 magnitude shook the region. These were the third and fourth such tremors in the past four days large enough for Israelis to feel. At about 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning, a magnitude 3.0 tremor also shook the area, as did a 3.5 magnitude quake at 9:18 p.m. on Thursday.

Earthquake hits northern Israel for fifth time in a week
A mild earthquake hit northern Israel on Tuesday, marking the fifth quake in a week to hit areas near the Kinneret. The earthquake hit the north-western part of the Kinneret at 8:50 A.M. local time and registered a magnitude of 3.3 on the Richter scale. On Sunday, two earthquakes rocked the Kinneret at a magnitude of 3.6 on the Richter scale.
