“Life is like a vapor. It is like a puff of smoke. It is here for a little while, then it is gone. If you were called into eternity today, would you be ready?”
The Turkey-Syria earthquakes which measured 7.8 and 7.5 on the magnitude scale recently, has so far left seen over 22,000 confirmed dead and thousands more injured or missing. The death toll far exceeds Japan’s 2011 Fukushima earthquake disaster. Considered one of the biggest disasters in the history of the world, one can’t help but question the meaning of these earthquakes and the fragility of life.
The earthquake’s damaging effects on Turkey and Syria are felt all over the world, as people everywhere rush to provide aid, financial assistance and relief. In the restful hours of the early morning, thousands were abruptly awakened from their sleep to death and destruction. Stories on the ground from those affected are heartbreaking. In the blink of an eye, people’s lives changed. In the heart of the city, Kahramanmaras, with a population of approximately 400,000, people of all classes were affected. The earthquake did not discriminate. If the world wants equality, they finally have it. The thriving metropolis now lies in dust and rubble, with residents camped out in tents in the city’s soccer stadium. With freezing temperatures making rescue efforts all the more difficult, and thousands still missing, death counts are expected to rise.
Scientists globally are analyzing fault lines, to see how they caused such seismic devastation. It would be great if we could predict when these disasters might occur to mitigate or prevent their devastating effects. Alas, no matter how much knowledge humans acquire, or how much money we have, we are not, and will never be God.
We cannot avoid such natural disasters, whether they are God-ordained, or as some “conspiracy theorists” might claim, a Globalist’s nefarious plan to destroy a nation. An earthquake and its aftershocks bring everyone to ground zero. We are but ants in a world designed by those in power to bring us all to nothing at the push of a button. Today it’s an earthquake, tomorrow a pandemic, next week a war. These disasters are predicted in the Bible. Christians have known for years these things would happen eventually, and in bigger and more frequent proportions. We don’t need human scientists to tell us how these happen or how to avoid them. They are unavoidable because, despite some Globalists’ evil plan, he is only carrying out God’s ultimate plan.
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Hang on to your Bible Christians, and if you are not Christian and don’t own a Bible, I suggest you grab one from the nearest church. We are in end times. No one knows when or where the next disaster will occur, we need only be ready as to how we respond. Let’s pray for those affected by this recent catastrophe and pray that we are ready for any future calamities, for they will surely come.
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
