Matthew 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.”
In answer to the disciples questions on the Mount of Olives, after leaving the temple in Jerusalem, Jesus said that one on the end-time signs before His return would be an increase in devastating earthquakes.
The headlines today read: “The Ring of Fire Is Coming To Life In Heavily Populated Areas.”
Ring of Fire: seismically active belt of earthquake epicenters, volcanoes, and tectonic plate boundaries that fringes the Pacific basin. Most of the world’s earthquakes and about 75 percent of the world’s volcanoes happen within the Ring of Fire.
Mexico City was literally built on a former lake bed, and the unique geology of the area means that the city feels earthquakes more acutely than other major cities in the world. Scientists tell us that one day Mexico City is likely to be completely flattened by an extremely large earthquake.
Scientists warn us that the Cascadia Subduction Zone ( the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network) will one day trigger an earthquake and subsequent tsunami that will essentially destroy everything west of Interstate 5 in the Pacific Northwest. All of the cities in the Northwestern United States and Northwestern Canada to Alaska are built on a “time bomb”.
This devastation will come at a time most of the world’s population thinks not.
