Twin 7+ Magnitude Earthquakes Strike In Just One Week


First, there was a massive 7.6 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Honduras that triggered a tsunami warning—the largest earthquake in Central America or the Caribbean in five years.

Then early this morning a powerful 7.1 magnitude quake struck Peru, toppling buildings, killing two, and injuring dozens more.  In any given year there are usually 10-20 7.0 or higher earthquakes around the world, or roughly one every three and a half weeks.  To have two just five days apart is certainly not unprecedented, but it is certainly a noticeable uptick worth paying attention to.

177 days (inclusive) before the 7.6 Honduras earthquake was a 7.7 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Russia that was 7 miles deep occurring on 7/17/17.  That happened just as Israel temporarily retook control of the Temple Mount for the first time since 1967.

177 days (inclusive) before the Russian earthquake was a 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Papua New Guinea.

177 days before the Papua New Guinea earthquake was a 7.7 magnitude quake in the Northern Mariana Islands.

To the secular mind, these are all coincidences—though surprisingly improbable at that.  Yet to the believer who recognizes God’s sovereignty, these are unmistakable patterns.  He controls it all.  And to the “Christian” critics who are still so quick to dismiss the incredible plethora of numbers, patterns, and signs from 2017 (see here and here), I have to question whether you believe in God’s sovereignty.  He’s either completely sovereign or not sovereign at all.  There are no coincidences.

Regarding the September 23rd/24th astronomical alignment in particular, if it was just a surprisingly similar alignment to what Revelation 12:1-2 describes, yet meaningless, consider that before the very beginning of time God knew that on that date the planets and stars would align in such a way that thousands of people could honestly believe the sign from Revelation 12:1-2 was being fulfilled.  It was a perfect, unmistakable match.  The timing of what that sign is pointing to—namely, the rapture and the beginning of the Tribulation—is still unknown us, but we would be wise to trust what the Bible plainly says and continue to watch this story unfold.

We are still in the biblical year of the Revelation 12 Sign (roughly April 2017 through April 2018) and shortly after that is the actual 70th anniversary of Israel, which happens to be the same day (May 14th) that Christ ascended if His crucifixion occurred in 33 AD.  Just one week later is Pentecost.

I’m still closely watching this all unfold and trying to patiently trust God for the timing and details. (Click to Source)
