The Earthquake in Chile

Probably you have already heard this but, just in case you haven’t -- several articles on the web today are reporting that:

The Earthquake in Chile may have changed the Earth’s Rotation and axis and shortened the length of our days !

Seems that something similar happened with the 9.1 earthquake in Sumatra in 2004.  It also shortened Earth’s days and shifted its axis.

Now the interesting thing about this, from a Biblical point of view, is that several earthquakes are recorded and predicted in the Bible and there is one in Revelation 6 that is really severe. 

Rev. 6;12-17 (NKJV) says:

I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold,

there was a great earthquake;

and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind.  Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, 

and every mountain and island was moved out of its place.

And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” 

Of course the earthquakes in Chile and Sumatra or even the recent one in Haiti are not the one referred to in that Revelation passage.  But they do give one pause. 

For years I used to wonder what that passage in Rev. 6 meant when it spoke of “every mountain and island was moved out of its place”.

That passage is now becoming clear and feasible.


Anyway, with that by way of introduction, to read about this latest earthquake and the changes it has produced, HERE’S ONE LINK.
and though there are many many more we will stop with THIS LAST LINK.
