More Quakes

Not only is the earthquake story continuing, but we are seeing them in more and more diverse places - including the U.S.

4.0 Oklahoma
4.3 Oregon
5.5 Argentina
6.3 Drake Passage (southern tip of S. America)
4.5 Iran
4.9 Dodecanese Islands
5.8 Kuril Islands
5.6 Japan
5.3 Bali
5.3 Aleutian Islands
5.9 New Britain Region
6.5 Northern California
4.9 India

These are just a few noteworthy earthquakes over the last 2-3 days. There are many more. Oklahoma, Oregon, California, Iran, Argentina, South Pacific, Caribbean, India; you name a region and it seems as though an earthquake has occurred recently.

As mentioned, all of this is happening at a time when the other signs that we follow are in the news. Kind of like........birth pain contractions.


UPDATE: Monday Morning - 6.0 earthquake hits Guatemala.

Also updated Monday morning:

5.0 Greece
4.1 New Mexico

These updates have occurred over the course of Monday morning since the original was written (above).

Birth pains indeed.

I have had four children and I know what labor feels like! The way things are happening so quickly and before we have time to recover before the next big sign, it honestly feels like our world is in "transition".

Transition is the final phase of labor where the mother is overwhelmed, ready to give up, she begins to shake, to tremble. She becomes delirious and it's hard to get comfortable. Transition is also the time when the mother becomes emotionally needy & seeks reassurance that everything is going to be okay. When a mother is calmly reminded that she is in the final, transition phase, she experiences a peace in spite of the pain knowing that it will end soon.

At the rate things are going, I cannot help but wonder if that might be where we are at. Of course, no one knows the day or hour but He has given us the signs to look for and has instructed us to be watchful.

Thank you for your blog - you are such an encouragement to so many!

I completely agree - I had a similar analogy - where the expectant mother has now been moved from the "expectant area" - with minimal monitoring etc., into the actual Labor and Delivery Suite. Ready to deliver at any moment. Basically the same thing you are saying.

By the way, I just logged on to update the fact that Guatemala has just been hit with a 6.0. This is a very interesting time. The earthquake signs are just supplementing the vast array of other signs we are watching.

Thanks for the note - and its most definitely my pleasure.

God Bless

I dread to think what the equivalent of the waters breaking will be?
When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Lord will raise up a standard against Him!
