A Blessing or Curse? :: By Jim Towers

Today there was a photo on the internet of a small group of Democrats in California praying under the leadership of homosexual Buttigieg, which leads me to believe the continuing earthquakes in California have awakened something in them – through fear. Albeit, this could be yet another ploy for the homosexuals and liberals to ingratiate themselves to the Christian populace – this after eliminating God and Christ from all their venues, rallies and swearing-in’s. What hypocrisy! What audacity! These have no intention of repenting and will blithely continue to flaunt their perversity.

With ever increasing earthquakes happening in California and throughout the world, we must wonder if it is a curse. The Bible clearly says that in the “Last Days” there would be earthquakes like never before – and there are. For those who know scripture and really believe what they read, these earthquakes are clearly due to God’s righteous anger against thankless sinful humanity who don’t believe He exists, have disregarded His commandments, or have just taken Him for granted.

Even as I write this, the earthquakes continue coming (Greece 7/19), and it seems like there is no end in sight. In the United States alone (on 7/6/ 2019), there were 46 earthquakes in 24 hrs; 163 in the past seven days; and 637 in the past week. Jesus said this would happen just prior to the Harpazo (Rapture) and second coming to planet Earth – with other calamities in between, such as Wars and rumors of Wars. Look how close we’ve recently come to war with Iran, as war drums continue to sound. If that happens, Russia will likely step in to help them as they are allies. Egypt, Libya and Syria are also allied with Iran. The Bible told us this would happen long before they even became allies.

People affected by these tremblors are at their wits end and crying out to the God they have failed to acknowledge. People tend to use the road of less resistance and barely seek the face of God in the good times, pounding their chests in defiance. (Have you ever noticed how people love to talk about themselves, thinking they are the wisest, strongest human beings who ever lived?) “Thinking themselves to be wise, they became utter fools.”

We can only expect earthquakes to increase in intensity with some causing tsunamis. “Men’s hearts failing them for fear and apprehension at what is about to happen to the earth.” The latest being in Athens, Greece.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.” The shaking across the globe is a wake-up call that we should repent and seek the only one who can save us – Almighty God. If this jostling doesn’t get a person to repent – nothing will.

Many people may gravitate toward God and the church until things subside and return to “normal,” then it’s back to the same old same old.

More people showed up in churches in southern California during and after the earthquakes, but it will probably be like what happened after 9/11. I remember it well – having sat in the aisle on my haunches so that newbies could sit in the pews (and this was a huge church with thousands of seats).

I suspect that in the very near future with more prophecies being fulfilled – many other people will run to the church (totally devoid of spiritual understanding), only to be misled by teachers who don’t or won’t adhere to biblical doctrine; thus, they will have no one to turn to in their despair. That is, unless God sees fit to reach down to those who repent and seek His face in earnest repentance. After receiving Christ, these will – to their surprise – experience a peace that surpasses all understanding. So, in some ways, earthquakes, tsunami’s, hurricanes and even war can be a blessing in disguise because it is only then that people will humble themselves, call out to God and be saved. And what could be better?

The following are other sure signs of Christ’s soon return to take us home and to the marriage supper of the Lamb:

Signs and wonders and portents (warnings) in the skies, flooding, intense heat, unabated murder, infanticide, disease and pestilence, apostasy of the church, apathy of Christians, hypocrisy, hate and fear, lack of faith. “When I return, will there be any faith on earth?” – Jesus.

What people are really searching for is the unadulterated Gospel (the good news of hope and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ), and God has given us the privilege of being participants in sharing this good news with others. “How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?”

As these events escalate, we mature Christians must be ready to lend a helping hand in all areas of life, and especially to those who are despairing. We must reach out with the gospel to the hurt and dying with a greater degree of compassion and fearlessness.

That being said, today’s ever-increasing earthquakes and fearful signs could be a curse – resulting in a potential blessing.

God knows how to get our attention.
