Quake-Hit New Zealand City Hit By New Shocks
CommentsA 5.2-magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand's quake-hit city of Christchurch, prompting the evacuation of a building holding an inquest into February's deadly tremor.
The US Geological Survey measured the quake, which hit just 6 miles from Christchurch, at 5.2-magnitude and a depth of about 7 miles.

An aftershock measuring 4.4 hit the area some eight minutes later.

Police said they had received some reports of damage in the city, including flooding, and fears remained of people trapped inside buildings.

At least one building collapsed in the latest quake, with at least two people being rescued from the rubble by fire crews.

Reports indicate that power has been cut to the homes of at least 10,000 customers.

Much of central Christchurch remains closed off since a 6.3-magnitude quake on February 22 levelled buildings, killing 181 people in the country's deadliest earthquake for 80 years.

Christchurch cathedral dean Peter Beck described the latest quake as "very big".

An inquest into the collapse of one of these buildings, which began Monday, was briefly evacuated following the latest tremor.

Hi Bebootje

My Younger Sister nicked my Bible many years ago while I was away from Home. Is it the Verse about Armaggedon, or pestilence and plague?

Seriously now, in my lifetime I have never known such destruction of the Earth through Volcano Eruptions, Earthquakes, Floods, Drought ,Seasons
not defined any more etc. If yoiu read this perhaps you would be kind enought to post the Verse, thanks.

Hi Panda,
You are right. The major earthquackes are pointed out in the bible as a part of a complex of signs that would mark a period the bible calls "the last days", the period just before God will bring an end to the world as we know it (read: not the Earth, nor mankind, but will make an end to suffering and the causes of that suffering).
Jesus told his diciples that when they would see these signs the end was near just like the signs of spring shows that summer is near.

You can make up your own mind as to believe we are now living in this period, but for me it is clear to see. And like you many people are asking themselves what on earth is happening with this world.
---------------
Jesus Christ described a particular sign that we need to recognize. What he was pointing to would have global impact and would affect all mankind.
Jesus spoke about the Kingdom of God, which will remove wickedness and make the earth into a paradise. His disciples were curious about this and wanted to know when that Kingdom would come. They asked: “What will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things?”—Matthew 24:3.
Jesus foretold a multitude of events that together would constitute a sign that would be identifiable from anywhere on earth
Jesus knew that following his execution and resurrection, centuries would pass before he would be enthroned in heaven as the Messianic King to rule over mankind. Since his enthronement would be invisible to humans, Jesus gave a sign that would enable his followers to recognize his “presence” as well as “the conclusion of the system of things.” This sign is composed of several facets, which together make up a composite identifying mark, or signal—the sign of Jesus’ presence.
Gospel writers Matthew, Mark, and Luke each carefully recorded Jesus’ answer. (Matthew, chapters 24 and 25; Mark, chapter 13; Luke, chapter 21) Other Bible writers added details to the sign. (2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Peter 3:3, 4; Revelation 6:1-8; 11:18)

Matthew 24:7,
“Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom,” said Jesus, “and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another.” He added: “All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress.”

Markus 13:8 :
8 “For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, there will be earthquakes in one place after another, there will be food shortages. These are a beginning of pangs of distress.
Revelations 6:4
And another came forth, a fiery-colored horse; and to the one seated upon it there was granted to take peace away from the earth so that they should slaughter one another; and a great sword was given him.
Luke 21:9 - 11,
9 Furthermore, when YOU hear of wars and disorders, do not be terrified. For these things must occur first, but the end does not [occur] immediately.”
10 Then he went on to say to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 11 and there will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another pestilences and food shortages; and there will be fearful sights and from heaven great signs.

Revelation 6:5-8
And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say: “Come!” And I saw, and, look! a black horse; and the one seated upon it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice as if in the midst of the four living creatures say: “A quart of wheat for a de·nar´i·us, and three quarts of barley for a de·nar´i·us; and do not harm the olive oil and the wine.”
7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say: “Come!” 8 And I saw, and, look! a pale horse; and the one seated upon it had the name Death. And Ha´des was closely following him. And authority was given them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with a long sword and with food shortage and with deadly plague and by the wild beasts of the earth.


Wars on an unprecedented scale
Large earthquakes
Food shortages

epidemics

Matthew 24:12-13
12. and because of the increasing of lawlessness the love of the greater number will cool off. 13 But he that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved. 14 And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.

increasing lawlessness
Cooling of love

global preaching of Gods Kingdom

Revelation 11:18
18. But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time for the dead to be judged, and to give [their] reward to your slaves the prophets and to the holy ones and to those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.”

Ruining the Earth

2 Timothy 3:1-2
1. But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal,

critical times hard to deal with
Excessive love of money
Disobedience to parents
Excessive self-love


2 Timothy 3:3
3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness,
Lack of natural affection
People are not open to any agreement
Lack of self-control at all levels of society
Widespread loss of love for the good


2 Timothy 3:4
4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

Lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God

2 Timothy 3:5
5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

Many claim to be Christians hypocritical

Matthew 24:36-39:
“Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 38 For as they were in those days before the flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark; 39 and they took no note until the flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be.


Taking no note of the impending danger

2 Peter 3:2-4:
2 For YOU know this first, that in the last days there will come ridiculers with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires 4 and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.”
5 For, according to their wish, this fact escapes their notice, that there were heavens from of old and an earth standing compactly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and by those [means] the world of that time suffered destruction when it was deluged with water. 7 But by the same word the heavens and the earth that are now are stored up for fire and are being reserved to the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly men.


Ridiculers rejecting proof of the last days

Jesus also foretold that on the whole Earth an educational work would be done . He said: "This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all nations and then the end shall come (Matthew 24:14).
Now, In 236 landen over seven million Jehovahs Witnesses tell all people what the Kingdom of God will bring to this world, and help them to live in confirmation with the righteous requirements of God, who wants an end to suffering and pain.
