Prophetic Events of 2021 :: By Jeff Van Hatten

It is no longer a question of whether or not the end-time signs Yeshua told us would be happening just before his arrival to resurrect the dead and rapture his bride are burgeoning. Indeed, they are.

Earthquakes and Earthquake Swarms

Mark 13:8 – “There will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines… These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

Luke 21:11 – “And there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.”

For the past umpteen years, I have given the number of earthquakes each year and stated that the total number of quakes has increased each year since 2012. Guess what? The trend continues, and this year there is a marked increase in the average of greater earthquakes – despite the best efforts of the USGS to hide this fact – and a lot of earthquake swarms throughout many parts of the world. In short, all of the greater earthquake numbers exceed the averages.

On November 28, 2021, three 7+ magnitude earthquakes hit close to Barranca, Peru – USGS only reported one (1). The next day three 6+ magnitude earthquakes hit in the Izu Islands, Japan region – USGS only reported two (2). On August 12, 2021, an 8.1 and three 7+ magnitude earthquakes hit the South Sandwich Islands region – USGS only reported two (2), one 8.1 and one in the 7+ range at a different depth. Thus far, USGS has under-reported the totals by 5. For a more in-depth discussion of this phenomenon, click here:

For those who insist on percentages, numbers, and data, below are the mind-numbing 2021 statistics:

The total number of earthquakes (159,633) is 11.25 times the average (14,194 from 1900 to 2000) and over 279 times the amount in 1949 (571). As of December 31, 2021, the numbers are:

  1. Quakes in the 8.0 and above range (3) were 300% of the average since 1900 (1).
  2. Quakes in the 7.0 to 7.9 range (21) were 150% of the average since 1900 (15).
  3. Quakes in the 6.0 to 6.9 range (141) were 105% of the average since 1900 (134).
  4. The number of large earthquakes (165) was 110% of the average since 1900 (150).
  5. The total number of earthquakes (159,633) is 20.99 times greater than the total number in the 1950s (7,605).
  6. The total number of earthquakes (159,633) is 8.13 times greater than the total number in the 1960s (19,639).
  7. The total number of earthquakes (159,633) is 5.02 times greater than in any of the years prior to 2012 (31,777 in 2008).

Other Signs

Luke 21:11 – “There will also be famines and pestilences…”

Luke 21:25 – “And upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.”

Hosea 4:3. – “The beasts of the field, the fowls of heaven, and the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.”

 Pestilences and Plagues

Gee, anyone heard of worldwide viruses, or worse yet, the genocidal death serums produced by big Pharma? The latest VAERS data shows 1,859,633 adverse events from these serums, which according to the VAERs website, may only account for 1% of the actual number of adverse effects.

A record number of manatees died this year in the US State of Florida, primarily from starvation due to a red tide. Several people in California were killed by a toxic algae bloom more deadly than toxic nerve gas. A maximum-security prison in regional NSW, Australia had to be emptied of inmates after it was lost to a $100 million mouse plague. New York state saw five times more mosquitoes this year than last. Rome was plagued by problems as a wild boar and cockroach invasion roamed the streets to eat from the ever-increasing overflowing garbage bins. Avian flu hit Ireland, the Czech Republic, Finland, South Korea, and China. The African Swine Flu hit China and Vietnam.

 Locusts

Ethiopia, Somalia, Tanzania, Kenya, South Sudan, Uganda, Eritrea and Yemen had swarms arriving. Somalia and Ethiopia lost their fights against the new locust invasions.

 Wildfires

Italy, Croatia, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, Albania, Kosovo, North Macedonia, and Ukraine tackled dozens of wildfires. More than 500 summer wildfires broke out across Greece alone. The US west coast states were once again ablaze. Nearly one-hundred wildfires raged across thirteen states in the US. The Dixie fire in California took out 963,309 acres, and the Caldor fire took out 221,835 acres. The bootleg fire in Oregon ravaged about 400,000 acres. Late December saw Boulder County, Colorado and surrounding communities destroyed by the Marshall Fire.

 Volcanoes

Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano is still erupting. The volcano that erupted on the Spanish Canary Island of La Palma has not yet slowed its activity. Mount Etna dumped a year’s ash in 45 minutes: Mount Sinabung Indonesia, San Cristobal Nicaragua, and Guatemalan Pacaya volcanoes all erupted this year. Starting mid-December, the Ring of Fire has been exploding to life.

 Wind Events

Hurricanes in 2021 were at peak levels. Hurricane Sam was the strongest storm of the 2021 Atlantic season as of October. Hurricane Ida made landfall 16 years to the day since Katrina devastated Louisiana. Katrina, Gustav, Isaac, Harvey, and Ida all made landfall on the 29th of August! Italy, Greece and Spain were hit by anti-cyclone Lucifer, causing temperatures in Sicily to hit 120° Fahrenheit…. In December, the Biden administration affirmed its commitment to the two-state solution and the importance of joint action by all parties to move forward to achieve peace and stability in the region. The worst tornado disaster in the history of the state of Kentucky killed dozens of people and flattened countless buildings mid-December, killing over 70 people. This was just one of five states that were impacted by tornadoes in December as Yahweh’s response to this betrayal of Israel (Genesis 12:3).

 Floods

Maharashtra, India was flooded with 24 inches of rain in just 24 hours, killing at least 110 people. Eastern Australia saw massive flooding caused by torrential rains, which forced the evacuation of some 40,000 residents. It was the worst flooding in over a century in Australia. Zhengzhou, China received 24.5 inches of rain in just an hour, causing the evacuation of 200,000 people. Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands were also flooded with over 100 dead and even more missing. More than 100 people died after flash floods and landslides hit Indonesia. England, Wales and Northern Ireland saw a lot of rain in 2021, and Kyushu, Japan saw overflowing rivers and landslides as record levels of rainfall fell in August. December saw record levels of rain in Southern California and record feet of snowfall in both California and Nevada mountains.

 Droughts

Again, worldwide. Here’s a short list of some of the countries that have been hit: The worst drought in 40 years has hit Southern Angola; and in Taiwan, the worst drought in 50 years. China, North Korea, Brazil –which is experiencing the worst dry spell in 91 years – and Mexico, which has had drought conditions covering 85% of its land; Konya, Turkey which has been so dry that over 600 sinkholes have appeared; and the United States – 90% percent of U.S. West is in drought for the first time – have all been hit hard by drought in 2021. On the positive side, the start of 2021 in Morocco was marked by heavy rainfall, which refilled many of its reservoirs after two years of drought.

 Famines

The United Nations says Ethiopia’s Tigray region is currently facing the worst global famine in decades. Madagascar, South Sudan, Yemen, the Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, Syria, Venezuela, Haiti, Guatemala, and many other countries are now standing on the edge of a full-scale famine. Famines this year have been amplified once again by the worldwide lockdowns.

 Temperature Extremes

The days-long winter storm that hit Texas left millions of residents without power. Makes one wish for the good old days of coal-fired power plants. On the other side, countries in the Mediterranean saw some of the highest temperatures in decades, as did North Korea, Europe, and the western US and Canadian states – mostly only in July. But unfortunately for the Global Warming crowd, 2021 was less warm than recent years due to the influence of a moderate La Niña at the start of the year, and will likely only come in between the 5th to 7th warmest year on record. Alexandria, Egypt was hit hard by a once-in-a-century snowfall in late December. The cold snap extended to Lower Egypt, Greater Cairo, North Upper Egypt, the cities of the Suez Canal, and the Sinai Peninsula.

 Mass Deaths

2021 saw 154 known mass animal death events in 52 countries or territories as of December 31st.

Contrary to many assumptions, it was not viruses that were the leading cause of human deaths in 2021, but once again abortions with another 42.6 million deaths as of noon on December 31, 2021. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 worldwide abortions per day. According to statistics provided by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), more than 1.1 million abortions had already taken place worldwide in the first ten days of 2021!

The demonically designed genocidal death serums have killed over 21,000 people thus far, which according to the VAERs website, may only account for 1% of the actual number of deaths.


Mark 13:8 – “… These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

Luke 21:11 – “And there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.”

Bluntly put: “The brown fecal matter has squarely hit the round oscillating apparatus.” I pray you are not standing directly in front of the oscillating apparatus. Those who hate Yahweh are desperately trying to institute their version of Re-Set: Order out of Chaos. Natural disasters around the world again occurred at an alarming rate in 2021. Earthquakes and fires demolished entire towns or cities; wildfires burned hundreds of thousands of acres – unprecedented in past history. Tornadoes, cyclones, and hurricanes hit the planet, many of which also caused mass flooding and loss of life. Pandemics, both viral and infestational, exploded. The birth pangs are, indeed, breaking forth.

Final Thought

Luke 21:28 – “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near!”

May Yom Teruah this year be fulfilled in the resurrection of the dead. Be sure you are ready and watching. Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – so be of great cheer, keep looking up, lift up your heads and see your redemption draw near. Keep maintaining an attitude of gratitude. Be sure Yeshua is your Redeemer, King, and High Priest, and your sins are forgiven.
