Recent Wave Of Killer Earthquakes Occurred On Undiscovered Faultlines

In Focusing On Known Faultlines Few Realize Giant Quakes Can Strike Anywhere

midst significant concern about the New Madrid fault line in the middle of America, and the notoriously huge San Andreas earthquake zone which runs from Southern California up to Washington state, concerns are emerging over undiscovered faults deep in the earth. The recent wave of Earthquakes which have been so deadly were, more often than not, centered in seismically active areas which were previously unknown.

The recent devastating Japanese quake is the prime example. The Japan disaster, which is still making headlines with the latest threat of a total meltdown of one of the island nation's reactors, observers were stunned because the massive quake occurred on a previously unknown fault.

Fox News just ran a piece which stated that one in three recent Earthquakes under 6.7 in magnitude occurred on a faultline that was previously unknown. When an "expert" was asked if this means a killer quake can occur anywhere, the scientist denied that possibility.

However, the data says otherwise. In addition to the shockingly destructive Japanese Earthquake of just two weeks ago, the "down under" quake which practically destroyed Christchurch in New Zealand just last month was sitting on a previously unknown fault. California quakes in Napa Valley, Northridge, and Loma Prieta were also a big surprise.

The massive shaking which killed so many in Haiti last year (estimates run as high as 300,000 dead) was also in a location which was not  expected to produce such a destructive Earthquake. There are many more examples. Furthermore, the sheer volume of events is sharply escalating, so people are beginning to realize the entire planet is now behaving in a fashion which the so-called "experts" cannot fully explain.

Editor's Note: Although prophecy figures have widely quoted the famous warnings from Jesus Christ concerning the circumstances which will accompany the end of the age ("great earthquakes shall be in diverse places" -- Luke 21:11), most of us have become so anesthetized to such cautionary statements that we don't fully realize the scope of what is being said. Throughout the prophets, we continually hear about a "great shaking" which will occur as a result of the great displeasure of God.

Ironically, the leader of Japan, when he first acknowledged the destruction of late, publicly stated his concern that the deity was angry with his country. After a political scramble, the comments were largely excised from the public discourse. We would all do well to recognize these particular signs of the times, for when we fail to recognize what is occurring, the Scriptures promise things will continue to escalate. Get used to it, for the Great Tribulation is at hand, and the only wise course of action is to ask why?
