Jesus, the Redeemer of the world, began His last week on earth by riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. As the slow moving donkey approached the city many excited people spread their clothes for it to walk on. They waved palm branches.
They rejoiced and loudly praised God for the mighty miracles they had seen Jesus perform. A great multitude began to shout, “Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest” (Luke 19:35-38).
There were enemies of Jesus in the crowd and they were in despair. They were concerned that the whole world was going to follow Him (Jn. 12:19). They said, “Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out” (Luke 19:39-40).
It wasn’t long until He was arrested, bound, beaten and escorted out to a place called Golgotha where He was crucified. And while He was hanging on the cross the earth began to quake (Matt. 27:51). It was no ordinary quake. It was a tremendous quake.
The rocks actually split. They were crying out as they cracked open. To this day there are cracks that look like streaks of lightning in the rocks where many think the cross stood.
Before any of this happened, Jesus was asked, “What shall be the sign of thy coming” (His Second Coming)? He listed five things and one of which was “earthquakes in divers places” (Matt. 24:3-7).
So there were earthquakes at the First Coming of Jesus (Matt. 27:51, 54; 28:2) and there will be earthquakes at the Second Coming of Jesus (more crying rocks).
Other Scriptures teach that there will also be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars (Joel 2:31, 3:15; Luke 21:25). The Bible doesn’t say what kind of signs in the sun, but it is clear that they will have something to do with the return of Jesus and the judgment of God.
For whatever it is worth, it has been reported that on June 5, 2015 Mr. John L. Casey (the Pres. of the Space and Science Research Corp. and a former advisor to the White House on the U.S. Space Program) sent a warning letter to Mr. Craig Fulgate (the Administrator of FEMA) about the sun and an event called Solar Hibernation.
Solar Hibernation means the sun is entering a cooling off period and giving off less energy. This is not new, but history and research now show that Solar Hibernation causes an increase in volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
They also show that some of America’s strongest volcanic eruptions and earthquakes have occurred near the end of a Solar Hibernation period. So this sign in the sun has been linked to earthquakes. And signs in the sun and earthquakes are linked to the Second Coming.
Now I don’t know what to think about volcanic eruptions. I have read that more volcanoes (82) erupted in 2010 than in any previous year. Then I read that the 2010 record was broken with 83 in 2013.
Then I read that global weather patterns are shifting not because of global warming, but because so many volcanoes are erupting under the ocean they are causing the oceans to warm and the warmer water is causing the weather to change.
But some scientists say even though it is clear that there a lot of volcanoes erupting on earth it has always been that way. They say we just didn’t know how many volcanoes were erupting in the past because earth’s population was smaller, technology wasn’t as good as it is today, reporting wasn’t as good as it is today, etc.
I just know that there are a lot of volcanoes erupting. And an increase in volcanic activity usually signals an increase in earthquakes. I just know that I have a note in my computer that says the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center reported that there were 13 earthquakes in April of last year that were 6.5 or more and that was easily a record for one month.
So based on history and research on Solar Hibernation and volcanic
activity the Pres. of the Space and Science Research Corp. sent a warning letter to the head of FEMA that said, “We are about to enter a potentially catastrophic period of record earthquakes and volcanic eruptions throughout the United States.”
And he said, “We believe the USA and the world, has now entered the most dangerous period for catastrophic earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in over two hundred years….”
Does this sign in the sun and the large number of erupting volcanoes mean that the “big one” is approaching?
Is this another sign that the Second Coming is close and people are running out of time to accept Jesus as their Savior? I don’t know, but I find it interesting especially since so much else is going on.
