The earth is making a noise that people are hearing. It’s shaking, quaking and doing all it can to nudge us, to wake us up, to alert us that the end is approaching. The Apostle Paul equates it to a mother giving birth—there are signs for which to watch so you will know when birth is about to happen. Earth is in labor and about to give birth to a dramatic new age prophesied in the Bible centuries ago.
Are you listening? Are you noticing? Are you looking up rejoicing?
Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:28
Earthquakes, birth pains, are coming closer together with increased intensity.
- Colombia: Fifth 7.0 magnitude quake to strike in 45 days
- 8.6 Earthquake in Indian Ocean Triggered Aftershocks in L.A.'s Backyard
- Costa Rican Quake Causes Peninsula to Rise about a Meter
- No reports of damage, injuries after 7.3 magnitude quake strikes off coast of El Salvador
- Strongest earthquake in years hits northwest of Norway
- Quake Numbers on the Rise
- Oklahoma Earthquakes on the Rise
Just this year, some very unusual news related to the earth and quakes started coming out. Did you notice? You have to put them together to see a sign. God is talking to us through the earth. Look at these reports:
- Quake Expert: Earth Cracking Up
- Ancient Fault Lines May Have Become Re-Activated
- Bizarre 2012 earthquake signals birth of world's newest tectonic plate
- Big earthquakes can trigger temblors across globe, USGS says
- Major earthquakes strike near north and south poles
You really need to pay attention to that last article where the north and south poles are affected because that leads us to these startling articles:
- Scientists say Earth is undergoing true polar wander
- Earth’s magnetic field overdue for a chaos-causing (possibly life-altering) flip
Wow, once you read that, you might flip out right along with the earth. The one article says that an overweight volcano can cause the earth to shift on its axis and even flip. Have you noticed an increase in volcanic activity? The other article says this:
It has happened before – the geological record suggests the magnetic field has reversed every 250,000 years, meaning that, with the last event 800,000 years ago, another would seem to be overdue.
“Magnetic north has migrated more than 1,500 kilometres over the past century,” said Conall Mac Niocaill, an earth scientist at Oxford University. “In the past 150 years, the strength of the magnetic field has lessened by 10 percent, which could indicate a reversal is on the cards.”
The book of Revelation shows us some earth altering events that will happen, and all of that which is happening now is readying earth for the birth of the end time tribulation.
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?” Revelation 6:12-17
When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets. Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake. Revelation 8:1-5
Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. Revelation 8:8-9
In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven. Revelation 11:13
Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail. Revelation 11:19
Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great. Revelation 16:17-21
The earth is going to be made over. All the pollution and destruction that has and will have plagued the earth will be removed through the purification of fire as prophesied by the Apostle Peter and confirmed in John’s Revelation:
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 2 Peter 3:10
Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:1-4
As in childbirth, Paul describes the earth’s birthing process with pain, suffering, and groans:
For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Romans 8:19-22
People in different parts of the world are literally hearing unusual, unexplainable noises that sound like trumpets. This is happening right now. If you search YouTube, you’ll find a bunch of stuff on it. On our YouTube account, we uploaded a report from Jim Paris, someone we trust, who did a presentation on it that you’ll find exciting. The earth is telling us we are in the last days and approaching the day of the Lord where delivery takes place.
With the ratcheting up of earthquake events, and even an increase in volcanic activity, scientists are freely predicting “big ones” all over the earth.

Jesus told us that one of the signs pointing to the end would be earthquakes:
And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:6-8
Can it get any clearer than that? Earthquakes are the forerunner to the end. We are there. This is great information to share with people who don’t know Christ. These are signs that point to the end and we can expound on them and show people that this is what was predicted by Jesus and the prophets centuries ago. They need to get ready by turning their hearts to Jesus.
Look up because your redemption is coming near. But, while looking up, hang on to something! There’s a lot more shaking to come.
